Emotions and Feelings Affect Your Health

October 25, 2016

Emotions and Feelings affect your health!  What emotions and feelings do you have that affect you every day of  your life?  What is hindering your health?  What is making you not happy and not feeling complete and whole?

Emotions and Feelings affect your health!

What is not working for you in your world?  What are you tolerating because it is easy or convenient, yet it is affecting you?!  Why are you keeping it?  Why have you not made a change?

What is hindering your health?

  • Are you at a job that doesn’t work for you?
  • Are you in a relationship that doesn’t work for you?
  • Are you overworked and have too many projects going on?
  • Do you have financial problems?
  • Are you a single parent?
  • Are you getting a divorce?
  • Are you not investing in you?
  • How are your feelings affecting your every day life?
  • Are your needs not met?
  • Are you making you sick?

Emotions and feelings affect your health to the point you start checking out!

Have you started checking out to help you escape from the emotions and feelings you are having?  People numb their feelings and emotions:

  • sex
  • drugs
  • smoking
  • meds
  • throwing up
  • not eating
  • binge eating
  • road rage
  • shopping sprees

Dr. Mercola is one of my “mentors” or like minded Wholistic Individual like myself.  Though I have never met him, I have followed him for 20 years.  In his article Imaging Technology Finally Revelas How Emotions Manifest in Your Body, he states the following:

I’ve often said that you cannot divorce your health from your emotions. Every feeling you have affects some part of your body, and stress can wreak havoc on your physical health—especially if you’re not exercising or eating right, as both of these can help keep stress in check in the first place.

Still, even if you’re doing everything “right,” your emotions—both chronic and acute—can wield great power over your body.

The classic definition of stress is “any real or imagined threat, and your body’s response to it.” Your body’s natural stress response can have a significant impact on your immune function, brain chemistry, blood sugar levels, hormonal balance, and much more.

In recent years, there’s been an upwelling of mind-body therapies that take this interrelatedness between your emotions and physical health into account.1 The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is, I believe, among the most effective.

While the mechanics of these mind-body links are still being unraveled, what is known is that your brain, and consequently, your thoughts and emotions, do play a role in your experience of physical pain, and can play a significant role in the development of chronic disease.

For example, previous studies have linked stress to lowered immune system function, increased blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and altered brain chemistry, blood sugar levels, and hormonal balance. It has also been found to increase the rate at which tumors grow.4 One of the reasons for this has to do with the way the biological stress response promotes inflammation in your body.

When you’re stressed, your body releases stress hormones like cortisol, which prepare your body to fight or flee the stressful event. Your heart rate increases, your lungs take in more oxygen, your blood flow increases, and parts of your immune system become temporarily suppressed, which reduces your inflammatory response to pathogens and other foreign invaders.

When stress becomes chronic, your immune system becomes increasingly desensitized to cortisol, and since inflammation is partly regulated by this hormone, this decreased sensitivity heightens the inflammatory response and allows inflammation to run rampant. While it’s not possible to eliminate stress entirely, you can help your body to compensate for the bioelectrical short-circuiting caused by emotional stress.

Emotions and feelings affect your health and your body begins having symptoms:

Your body tells you what is going on and that attention is needed.  Yet often times we don’t listen to it due to life being too busy, or not in tune with it.


Don’t keep putting it off!  You have an amazing life you are to live!  It’s time to live it!
