In Traditional Chinese Medicine the emotions are considered the major internal causes of disease.

When emotions become uncontrollable and extreme, to the point that they’re overwhelming, we see issues arise.

Coughing – Grief

Loss is something we all deal with in various ways or another, the end of a relationship or the death of a close family member or friend.

The lungs are responsible for drawing in clean, fresh air and expelling the breathing out of carbon dioxide. In with the new and letting go of the old, the cycle of life – and the lungs. When grief or sadness becomes unresolved, the lung Qi is weakened and coughing can occur. Consistent, recurring coughing is a sign of unresolved grief.

Sneezing – Worry & Grief 

The lungs and nose belong to same system, so naturally we can see that emotions affecting the lung Qi would create issues for the nose. Long term detachment will upset the lungs and can show up as recurrent sneezing or frequent colds.

When the spleen or stomach isn’t working properly, due to excessive worry, we see a disorder of the nasal mucosa (mucous membranes) and nasal obstruction, watery discharge, and sneezing result. The sense of smell is also affected.

Hiccups – Stress 

When liver Qi is stuck, due to frustration, anger, or stress we experience distension in the chest, the body often attempts to relieve this feeling through sighing. Discomfort is often felt just below the ribcage, along the path of the liver meridian, and hiccups can be caused due to Qi stuck in the diaphragm.

Hot Flushes - Anger

As we all know, heat rises in the home...heat also rises in the body. When anger or frustration occur, the liver Qi is compromised. Blocked liver Qi sends energy (heat) rising upward, causing issues in the body where the energy would normally flow downward. This can account for the upward rush of warmth and reddening of the face with a hot flash, often this is the cause of night sweats too.

Blocked Throat - Frustration

Stagnant liver Qi from frustration, anger or stress causes an excess of heat and dampness. When the blocked liver Qi injures the spleen or there is excessive anxiety, we see an obstruction in the ability to clear the dampness, and it turns into phlegm. This is when phlegm becomes a problem and accumulates in the body, primarily in the throat, alas the feeling of a blocked throat.
