Somatic [səʊ’mætɪk]:身体、肉体的。

The term “psychosomatic” refers to physical symptoms or illnesses that are thought to be caused or aggravated by psychological or emotional factors, such as stress, anxiety, or depression. The word is composed of two parts: “psycho,” which refers to the mind or mental processes, and “somatic,” which refers to the body or physical processes. For example, someone who is under a great deal of stress may develop headaches, digestive problems, or other physical symptoms as a result. While these symptoms are real and can be debilitating  [dɪ’bɪlɪteɪtɪŋ]  (使身心衰弱且运转失常的), they may not have a clear physical cause, and treating the underlying psychological factors may be necessary to alleviate the symptoms. It is important to note that psychosomatic symptoms are not “all in the person’s head,” but rather reflect the complex interplay between psychological and physiological processes in the body.


“Debilitating” refers to something that causes severe impairment, weakness, or incapacity, often resulting in a significant reduction of physical or mental abilities. It describes a condition, disease, or situation that greatly hinders or restricts a person’s functioning or quality of life.中文翻译:虚弱的,削弱力量或效果的。指一种状况,影响了一个人的力量或正常功能。
