Signs of Illness From the Point of View of Chinese Medicine

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 is affected by an emotion.
