      I think thinking negatively about illness can make you sick, but not in some mystical sense, just because you are stressing yourself out about sickness and weakening your immune system response as a result. I know of someone who used to get sick, without fail, every year during September. Their doctor explained to them that in anticipation of an illness, they were making themselves sick, and they stopped worrying about it, and stopped getting sick!

      A positive attitude probably isn't going to hurt any, and living stress-free is important anyways.

        I usually believe in "mind over matter" when it comes to being sick because my hypochondriac father and sister always freak out when they get sick, and I swear their ailment lasts 2-3 times as long as it needs to! I don't over-medicate either; in fact, the only time I take any kind of cold/flu medicine or ibuprofen is if I have a fever. I don't gulp NyQuil just because I have the sniffles like my aforementioned family members do!

        In the barely-once-a-year occasion where I have some kind of cold, I just go through it with lots of hydration, a good night's sleep, and tons of nutrient-dense stuff like colorful veggies and tea. I don't make it a big deal and, lo and behold, it's gone in half a week!

          I have a gorgeous friend, who I so hope is not part of this forum.......and she has stressed her whole married life about a clean house. Her children were often the only ones sick AND are always sick still ( all in their 20s). We have so got to be exposed to everyday germs, within reason LOL
