The Rebbe would often quote the words of the Maggid of Mezritch that “a small hole (ailment) in the body, is a big hole in the soul!” In other words, we cannot divorce our physical health from our spiritual health. How much more so is this true when we are dealing with issues of the mind and heart, where the impact of our spiritual health on our mental health and vice versa are self-evident and of tremendous consequence.
