The famous psychologist and homeopath Valery Sinelnikov has created a certain table of diseases that helps to reveal the psychosomatics of a pathological condition and begin work on getting rid of it.
A runny nose often denotes a person's depression, which he cannot throw out.
The psychologist explains the cough by the person's desire to declare himself, to draw attention to himself.
Frequent sore throat indicates that anger and anger accumulate inside a person that he cannot express. And also about the difficulty with expressing your own feelings, the ability to stand up for yourself.
Nausea and vomiting appear due to rejection of the world, or due to the presence of subconscious fear.
Headaches owe their appearance to inherent hypocrisy.
Cystitis is a sign of dissatisfaction with your partner, the presence of anger towards him.

It is impossible to cope with such diseases without the help of a psychotherapist - after all, not only the body, but also the soul suffers from them. And in this case it will not be possible to cope with drug therapy alone.
A significant part of patients suffering from psychosomatic illnesses are people who are used to hiding true emotions.
