Ask Dr. Orloff

Are highly sensitive people more prone to illness?

Question: Hi Dr. Orloff,

I was wondering if you find that people who are more sensitive are also more prone to illness. Specifically, I'm suffering with migraines. I am not asking you to dx/treat(I am being treated)...just wondering if this is common.
Thanks,

Answer: Dear Janetta,

Yes, sensitive people, whom I call empaths in Emotional Freedom, are more prone to symptoms and illness because they tend to be acutely sensitive and absorb what is around them in their environment. As a sensitive person, it's vital that you practice the strategies I suggest in the book to manage your energy such as clear boundary setting, alone time, meditation, being in nature, calming yourself down--all this decreases stress, which can help your migraines!
All the best,
Judith
