Liver

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?

Living Life on Purpose?

It sometimes seems to me that there are two distinct ways to live life.


  1. Unconsciously:  living life as dealt to you
  2. Consciously:  Living life as a choice

Now I'm not talking about ambitiously driving ourselves forward (bit of a liver issue perhaps in Chinese Medicine).  Simply are you living life in neutral or are you going somewhere on purpose.


I once read an interesting statement "We all need a compelling reason to live.  It doesn't matter so much what that reason is.

Facing Challenges

Life does seem to send us people, circumstances and health challenges.  

Of course what is a challenge is a matter of opinion and past experience.  I might find a roller coaster challenging whilst Catherine finds it exciting..  

What does Chinese Medicine tell us about challenges?  Not as much as it tells us about how we respond to challenges.  Of course the word "Challenge" is really the word "Change" with a couple of spare "l" s and an extra "e" for good measure.

Change...

Well.  Spring is all around us and it's often at this time that we think about making changes in our life.  Diets, additional exercise, reorganising our homes:  change can bring up interesting thoughts and emotions.

Change is an interesting concept and a great example of the experience of life being a product of our interpretation.  For example some people experience changing where they live as an exciting new beginning whilst others (in the same family even) experience the same change as very unpleasant.
