Just as stress affects the work of your heart, there are other emotions that can cause serious diseases as well. Alternative medicine connects the negative thinking and feelings with some diseases. If you’re not careful, the stronger emotions can cause you serious problems.
Anger is a strong emotion manifested by high blood pressure, which causes severe headaches and dizziness. Some studies have linked hidden rage with delayed liver function, which is responsible for the elimination of toxins from the body. The greater the outpouring of rage, the more you lose your appetite, and get problems with digestion and diarrhea.
An unexpected end of a long relationship, getting fired or the death of close one is an extremely emotional experience that causes physical shock with visible effects on the body. The shock is directly followed by an increase of adrenaline which can weaken the heart and long exposure can lead to serious problems. Therefore, in extreme situations, it’s necessary to seek medical advice.
Fear causes an excessive need to urinate (urination is a basic physical function associated with kidney function). Long-term exposure to fear causes delayed work with important organs.
Sadness leads to crying, short breathing spurts and physical fatigue. Long-term exposure to this emotion weakens lung operation.
People who worry too much, often have problems with digestion. Negative thinking can lead to diarrhea, vomiting and other chronic gastrointestinal problems. Some researchers link the obsessive concern with the high probability of getting stomach ulcers and even cancer.
