Health and Emotions-Are Your Emotions Making You Sick?

As medical science struggles to understand the direct correlation of the mind-body connection, it is becoming more apparent that our emotions can choreograph the interaction the brain has with every cell of our body, and vice-versa. What is recently coming to light is that the condition of our emotional health and our overall emotional well-being play a direct role in our mental, emotional and physical health. While a poorly functioning emotional state can have a debilitating effect on the body and create illness, ailments and disease, optimal emotional health can provide an active role in the healing process.

It has only been in the last few decades or so that we have looked at the mind-body as connected entities. We now know that the neuropeptides that are secreted from the endocrine system and immune system have a constant interaction with receptors within the brain. This two-way connection provides a level of communication that is only now being understood.

 The Interconnection of Mind and Body

 Many medical doctors, social workers and doctors of philosophy understand that there is a direct correlation between the body and the brain and vice-versa.
