The relationship of affect to the excretion of three hormones.

Over the centuries physicians have noted the intimacy of the relationship between "mind" and "body". One of the many quotable statements on the subject was made in 1779 by Dr. William Buchan of Edinburgh, who wrote, "The passions have great influence both in the crate and cure of diseases. How winds act upon matter will, in all probability, ever remain a secret. lt is sufficient for us to know that there is established a reciprocal influence betwixt the mental and corporeal parts and that whatsoever disorders the one, likewise affects the ether." (7) There have been many fruitless debates over the question of whether mind or matter is primary.
