Contemporary quacks would have you believe that all diseases are psychosomatic. AIDS and cancer, they say, can be cured if we only have the right mindset.
Iíd like to propose a new word: somatopsychic. It means that all our psychological ailments can be traced to physical causes. Happiness, grumpiness, love and sadness are caused exclusively by such things as the weather, viruses and nutrition.
Next time the charlatans try to convert you, just say, ďYouíre deluded, but itís okay. Your mom just didnít give you enough zucchini when you were a kid. Itís all in your body, man.. itís somatopsychic.Ē
