Did You Know Emotions Can Greatly Affect Your Health?

Posted by Just Fitter on

In traditional Chinese medicine, emotions and physical health are intimately connected. Sadness, nervous tension, anger, worry, and fear are each associated with a particular organ in the body.

While some types of pain are purely the unfortunate result of something going wrong at a physical level, it's important to note that other forms of discomfort primarily relate to your emotional well-being.
