Many have heard of the ABC type personalities and their assocoation to certain diseases. However , reading a text book tonight revealed that studies
have linked high concordance rates between specific moods, attitudes and personality types to very specific health problems. As one who has always
been geared towards the holistic approach to medicine , and my favorite saying " That science will more and more align with spirituality" , I found
it interesting. I did a search and didn't see anything as specific as this . So sorry if it's all been said and done before .
I'm curious if any of this rings true to you ???

Does any of this ring true for anyone, or is it bunk science ? One can find a correlation between ice cream sales and violence but it doesn't
make ice cream the cause of violence. I'm just curious to hear what you all have to say!
