The Emotional Aspect of Health and Acupuncture

We’ve talked around this topic for quite some time but today let’s get down to it.  In Chinese Medicine it was a truth that your body health is a reflection of your thinking. 
 
Modern science tells us:
 
·       Our thought patterns influence our health
·       Pain affects our psychology
·       Our emotional health is part of our health as a whole
 
So why don’t we just relax and enjoy good health in the lovely surrounds of the Glasshouse Mountains, Landsborough Mooloolah and Beerwah?  Is thinking happy thoughts a cure for disease? 
 
Well.  It’s a funny thing but science seems to keep finding evidence that it certainly helps.
 
Chinese Medicine had a very clear association with the emotions and their connection with organs in the body:
 
·       The Lung and Large Intestine organ pair was affected by Sadness and grief
·       The Stomach and Spleen organ pair was affected by worry
·       The Heart and Small Intestine organ pair was affected by excess joy
·       The Liver and Gallbladder organ pair was affected by anger
·       The Kidneys and Bladder organ pair was affected by fear
 
As with so many of the relationships in Chinese Medicine and acupuncture this relationship was understood to work in both directions.  For example exposure to fear could produce an imbalance in the Kidneys and produce lower back pain as a pattern.  At the same time an imbalance in the Kidneys can manifest as fearful emotions. 
 
So how do we apply this in knowledge in daily life:
 
1.     Check in.  Is it possible that your emotions are not in balance? 
2.     Understand that physical conditions may not have purely physical causes.
3.     Understand that emotional conditions may not have purely emotional causes.
 
Acupuncture was traditionally used to balance the energy of organ systems.  In modern times as we experience greater pressures perhaps this traditional system of healing is exactly what we need.
