Treating Symptoms & Healing the Root Cause of Illness


Traditional Chinese Medicine video

How Do We Get Ill?

Emotions are the beginning of illness. Why?

Because we were taught that it is wrong to express how we feel. We bottle up our anger, fear, guilt, and so on. Over time, all these repressed feelings become physical illness like pain, cancer, fibromyalgia, headaches, etc.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, each organ deals with a particular emotion and they are also color significant.

The Heart - Joy

If unbalanced, you have anxiety, insomnia, feelings of emptiness, a tight chest, and bad circulation.

The Spleen - Worry

If unbalanced, you have digestive problems, lack of energy, forgetfulness, heaviness in the body, mental & muscle weakness.

The Lungs - Sadness & Grief

If unbalanced, you have breathing problems, sadness, allergies, skin problems, colds, or flus.

The Kidneys - Fear

If unbalanced, you have lower back and knee pain, coldness, difficulty breathing, prostate problems, or sexual and reproductive problems.

The Liver - Anger & Depression

If unbalanced, you have headaches, Extreme PMS, painful periods, digestive/acid regurgitation problems, or constant irritability. You don’t like anyone, including yourself.
