So it still starts with internal factors from mindset and so on. 8th August 2017 at 9:40 pm #1138 StevenKaMemberInteresting concept. I like the idea of it being an internal factor as it is very empowering, although i can see how people with disabilities will not like that idea. 3rd September 2017 at 3:21 pm #1143 ZKeymasterI would think ultimately it is an inside factor, as any weakness in the body, creates the space for the disease to exist.Author Posts Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total)You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
