Traditional Chinese Medicine - Electro Acupuncture Device

Causes of Disease Theory: Internal, External, and neither External nor Internal causes (Miscellaneous).

Internal Causes of Disease: Emotional Disharmony
"The view of the internal organs as physical-mental-emotional spheres of influence is one of the most important aspects of Chinese medicine. Central to this is the concept of Qi as a matter-energy that gives rise to physical or mental and emotional phenomena at the same time. Thus, in Chinese Medicine, body, mind and emotions are an integrated whole with no beginning or end. 1

While Western Medicine also recognizes the interaction between body and emotions, it does so in a completely different way than Chinese Medicine. Western Medicine tends to consider the influence of the emotions on the organs as having a secondary or excitatory role rather than being a primary causative factor of disease. Chinese Medicine sees the emotions as an integral and inseparable part of the sphere of action of the internal organs, and a potential primary cause of disease. In fact, the seven potential "internal causes" of disease in Chinese Medicine are all "emotions"."

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the emotions are not "good" or "bad", they simply are part of being human and alive. There are good reasons to feel fear at times, to be angry, to worry, to feel joy, to feel grief and sadness. These feelings are indicators of our personal and collective relationship with the world and ourselves. In optimal health, our emotions flow freely, are acknowledged, responded to appropriately, and then we move on to the next "feeling". Disharmony and illness only arise when we become "stuck" in our emotions, try to ignore or suppress them. In my clinical practice many clients have come to attribute these "stuck" emotional issues as the primary cause of many diseases, including digestive, respiratory and sexual disorders, colitis/IBS, migraines, hypertension, skin disorders, depression and anxiety. These disorders do need to be addressed at a physical level, but until the underlying emotional issues are resolved/released we do not seem to be able to fully heal.

There is a direct relationship between the emotional life of a person and their physical health. Each organ is associated with a range of emotions. These Organs dominate the expression of particular emotions and they are in turn affected by these same emotions. The emotions exert a negative influence only when they become too intense, strong, unexpressed, excessive or when they dominate the psyche over a long period.

The Chinese recognize seven emotions: anger, joy, pensiveness, grief, fear, and shock. The seventh varies according to the source, but it can be sadness, anxiety (anxiety is thoughts that go round and round, which may shade into worry or be a form of fright or fear). Sadness is closely associated with grief so is best left with that. Fear and fright are closely associated and can be left as one emotion. As for anxiety, it can shade into fear or pensiveness and could be grouped with either of these according to its associated symptoms.

Whatever emotion is selected as the seventh, these emotions should not be interpreted too strictly. Most of the emotions after a long time can produce Fire, because they cause Stagnation of Qi and when Qi is compressed over a period it creates Fire. This may produce signs of Empty Heat, great anxiety and depression. Although Herbal Therapy, Acupuncture, and Asian Bodywork Therapy are definitely appropriate for mental/emotional disharmonies, a body centred psychotherapist may also be instrumental in resolving long-standing emotional disharmony.

Shock or Fright
Shock scatters the Qi and affects both the Kidneys and the Heart and to a certain extent, the Small Intestine. The Qi of the Heart is weakened rapidly, leading to palpitations, breathlessness and insomnia, and requires Kidney-Essence to support it. This puts a strain on the Kidneys, and tonification of the Kidneys helps.

An appropriate sense of instinctive fear is necessary for survival. Fear makes the Qi descend and affects the Kidneys. Excessive or prolonged fear drains the Kidneys. It can also suppress Qi. Fear has a different impact on adults and children. In children, fear causes Qi to descend, resulting in nocturnal enuresis (bedwetting). In adults, fear tends to cause Kidney-Yin deficiency. To some extent, Fear also disturbs the Heart, leading to anxiety. The Kidneys have to be strengthened.

Anger affects the Liver and makes the Qi rise. Anger includes several related emotions: resentment, repressed anger, irritability, frustration, rage, indignation, animosity and bitterness. Sulking and depression are also forms of anger (depression is blocked anger), frustration lies between anger and depression. In depression due to repressed anger or resentment, the tongue is dark red or red and dry.

Anger is sometimes necessary to exert one's authority. However, excessive and inappropriate anger causes Stagnation of Liver-Qi or Liver-Blood, the rising of Liver-Yang or Liver-Fire (which may
