There’s more to butterflies in the stomach and nervous sweats than you think. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), our emotions are very closely linked to and can be the cause of ailments we see daily.
Excess emotional activity causes severe yin-yang energy imbalances, stagnation in the flow of blood, Qi (vital energy) blockages and impairment of vital organ functions. Once physical damage has begun, treating the emotion itself is not enough to support a cure; the prolonged emotional stress will require physical action as well.
Each organ is associated with an overarching emotion; these emotions affect the health of the organ, its Qi. When the Qi is blocked, the meridian’s that span from that organ are affected, causing issues to arise along their pathways.
The liver Qi, for example, is affected by the emotions associated with anger – resentment, frustration, bitterness. When these emotions become overwhelming, liver Qi stagnation causes issues along the liver meridian – eczema, rashes, hives, puffy face, hiccups. So, naturally, when treating these ailments, we want to look at treating the organ associated too.
