As living, conscious beings, we consist of both body and mind. Body affects mind, and mind affects body. Anything that happens to our physical body will register an effect on our mind, either consciously or sub-consciously. Likewise, our conscious and sub-conscious mental states have a direct effect on all body functions. Happy, positive thoughts and emotions will have a beneficial effect on body functions, while negative and stressful thoughts and emotions will have harmful effects on the body.
If we want to maintain good health, we need to keep the body, mind, and emotions in a positive state. Our lifestyle, diet, mental/emotional state, and all input from the 5 senses will determine our overall physical and mental health.
