But life is stressful!
Having to work, care for our families, and deal with the bureaucracy of our lives means that happiness is often considered secondary.
Because your mind and your body are intertwined and interdependent on one another, how you deal with that stress is what makes all the difference in your physical health. This is where the kidneys come in.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine the kidneys are referred to as the batteries of the body. Sitting on top of your kidneys are two small glands, the adrenal glands, whose job it is to pump out hormones.
The Role of Cortisol and Adrenaline
of these hormones that we often hear about are called cortisol and adrenaline.
These hormones effect the functioning of your entire body, and play a
major role in your blood sugar levels, energy, sexual responsiveness,
and even blood pressure.
When stress-induced negativity and unhappiness dampen your spirit, your vital energy is also being drained.
then wonder why you feel so tired and irritable, or get depressed and
have trouble sleeping, gain weight or have food cravings.
From a happy heart a healthy body will follow.
"The Heart holds the office of Lord and Sovereign. The radiance of the spirits stems from it." – The Su Wen
All disease comes from the heart, the emotional pivot in Chinese Medicine. This is why happy people rarely get sick and generally live long lives.
