Manes, For Whorl Page

Readers Digest is one of my favorite magazines. They have great horse whorl articles in there.
They just don’t know it 😉
In the July/August issue there is an article by Rebecca Philps called Quieting Anxiety. In it she talks about a lady with ‘generalized anxiety disorder’.
The symptoms she shows?
Crippling shoulder and neck pain, dizziness, nausea, migraines. Physical symptoms of mental distress.
So what does this have to do with whorls?
Well, not whorls exactly but manes.
I have been extremely interested lately in how horse’s manes seem to switch sides due to mental issues, or being put into or removed from a stressful or difficult situation.
But there were no reasons we could give as to how mental stress could cause a physical change.
Here we have the reason. There is documentation that your mind can cause your body to hurt. Pain is a well known reason for the mane to switch sides. Pain can come from many sources, including the mind.
Fascinating.
