Spirituality and health are linked together. Those with more optimistic world views are more secure and calm. Due to this, those who experience sickness sometimes have a better chance of recovery. However, spirituality can also be a world view or a sacred philosophy. This type of moral anchor can help any individual.
Does this correlate completely with health? Some spiritual people become very sick. Some even die. Spirituality or a philosophical code of life does not bar one from illness or death but it does percentage wise help with overall outlooks which correspond with better recoveries, less stress, and a healthier outlook on life.
