Health of Mind and Body

Resentment, hate and ill have their demonstrated place in the bad health picture. A physician said of a certain man who held a long-term hate that he actually died of “grudgitis.” Perhaps the doctor could not enter this officially as the cause of death, but he described how the patient’s color sickened, his eyes lost luster, his organs functioned with increasing sluggishness, and his breath became extremely foul. “His whole being deteriorated and he became lacking in resistance and easy prey to disease”, said the doctor. “Yes,” he insisted, “the man died of a virulent long-held hate.”
