Hypochondrias is a condition where a person worries excessively and unduly about having a serious illness. It can be debilitating and require treatment from a psychologist. But oftentimes we refer to people who think they might be sick as having hypochondria because it is a way to dismiss their concern or say, “you always just think you are sick.” In this case, it’s important to recognize how and why we are interpreting our body’s signals in a negative way.

In this edition of Two Guys on Your Head, Dr. Art Markman and Dr. Bob Duke talk about the psychology of hypochondria, and the impact a positive mindset can have on your physical health.
