Have you been through an emotional ordeal and found yourself, going through a rough time health wise?
It’s all because there is no way you can divorce your health from your emotions.
Every emotion you have directly affects some part of your body, and stress can wreak havoc on your physical health—especially if you’re not exercising or eating right, as both of these can help keep stress in check in the first place.
Still, even if you’re doing everything “right,” your emotions—both chronic and acute—can wield great power over your body.
Traditional Chinese medicine views seven emotions including joy, anger, anxiety, grief, pensiveness, fear and fright that each affects the health of an organ. Each of these, when excessive, harms an internal organ and disturbs the qi in specific ways.
Anxiety and sorrow both damage the lungs. During times of anxiety, breath and qi are constricted, unable to flow easily in and out of the lungs.
The lungs are also affected by grief as demonstrated by the heaving that occurs with crying.
Grief depresses and weakens the lungs and, like anxiety, disturbs the easy and full movement of breath. When the lungs are weakened by grief, one's general health and vitality diminishes. However, this does not mean that we should suppress sorrow. It is not healthy to withhold one's tears in response to an upsetting event. Both prolonged grief and unexpressed grief weaken lung qi.
