Sue, if you're really interested in psychosomatic illness, there's some very basic information in this Wikipedia article. Asthma, allergies, even the Gulf War Syndrome are being investigated as "psychosomatic illnesses".
I was hoping to move beyond the basics into some intelligent discussion about Dr Hawkins (a Nobel Prize winner, no less!), his "Map of Consciousness" and it's applications for healing. But kat's right ... looks like the "seed" was sown in a dirty Catbox, going by the general tone (or "level of consciousness") of this thread. Oh well ;-(
