Emotions in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are associated with particular Yin Yang organs.

 Emotions! Emotions are The Architects of Dis-Ease.

Unfulfilled goals or desires can become strong emotions.

As a licensed acupuncturist running an acupuncture clinic in NYC, I have to deal often with patients who are very frustrated with Western medicine and are very sensitive emotionally.

Emotions are a state of mental reflection of our health.  Emotions are truly the architects of our diseases.

Emotions in Chinese MedicineEmotions need to be balanced, and too much of a certain emotion may lead to an energetic imbalance that will manifest in your health.

At the bottom of this article, I will post some solutions to managing stress and emotional burdens.

Happiness or joy for example in acupuncture relates to the heart, however, people who get too happy ( the once you may see on the NYC subways sometimes) may laugh inappropriately or excessively. 

What it means in Chinese Medicine is the heart not housing the spirit, meaning the person's mind is out of balance. The person may talk to him/herself, unable to focus on the conversation or even live in the world of his/her own. 

According to the acupuncture theory of 5 elements, each organ not only has its emotion but also a color which I used for early organ.

Joy is the emotion associated with the heart.
(the colors used below represent the color of a particular organ in acupuncture and Chinese medicine.)

Heart and Small Intestine leads to heart palpitations, insomnia, spontaneous sweating, poor memory and concentration, anxiety. 

Sadness or grief relates to the lungs in Chinese Medicine. Too much sadness can negatively affect the lungs.

Lung and Large Intestine imbalance may lead to shortness of breath, weak lungs, frequent colds.

Anger and it may be one of the worst long-term feelings is damaging to the Liver and Gallbladder. 

Prolonged anger can lead to headaches, insomnia, digestive problems, and even depression. Liver energy imbalanced by anger can invade the Spleen and disrupt the digestive process, giving rise to bloating and indigestion.

The liver element is wood and the heart is fire so too much liver/wood may disturb the heart/fire. 

The liver and Gall Bladder imbalance may lead to bloatedness, constipation or diarrhea, poor sleep, stress, high blood pressure, poor vision, and headaches or migraines.

Worry and overthinking belongs to the Spleen and Stomach.
Spleen and stomach are important sources of postnatal energy and health. Spleen and stomach are important for extracting nutrients from food and absorbing it.

Spleen/Stomach imbalance may lead to poor appetite, poor digestion, gas, bloating, diarrhea, nausea  

Fear has to do with the Kidneys and Bladder in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. 

Kidneys are one of the most important organs according to Chinese Medicine and acupuncture. Kidneys are the source of prenatal energy (your DNA).  

Kidney imbalance may lead to fatigue, poor sleep, dark circles under the eyes, heart palpitations and more.

Best way to deal with overbearing emotions according to Yogic and Chinese Medicine philosophy is to detach yourself from what is happening to you.

View your Life events as an observer NOT a participant.

Activities like Yoga, Meditation, Tai Chi, Pranayama (breathing) or simply quiet time will help you balance your emotions and health.
