I am always amazed by the human body and how it “speaks” to us about what is wrong with it. My traditional education as a pharmacist did not educate me with the understanding that Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has known for over 5,000 years. Studying natural medicine enlightened me tremendously, but it was own personal search for answers that opened up my mind to the bigger picture of well-being.
According to ancient healing wisdom, each emotion is associated with a specific organ, which, if out of balance will cause specific symptoms.
Emotions are of course a natural part of being human. It is when these emotions become excessive or are repressed and turned inward that they become pathological and cause disease. It is not the intensity as much as the prolonged duration or an extreme emotion, which causes damage.
