There is an old saying in Traditional Chinese Medicine: anger kills your liver. Is it true? Unfortunately, the answer is yes. How does anger cause damage to liver? You will find the answer in this article.
In the view of TCM, emotions are connected with the organ. Each of the organs has an emotional component, which is as important as its physical functions in the body. And the emotion of the liver is anger. Further, emotional signs of a sluggish or overloaded liver may be expressed as increased outbursts of anger and rage, and difficulty controlling these and other similar feelings. Conversely, long-standing repression of resentment, anger or jealousy can result in additional stress on the liver, according to TCM.
If it is hard to understand, let’s talk about a vicious cycle. When you are in anger, you are not happy. If you are not happy, it’s hardly for you to feel like meditating, thinking positively, and performing little acts of kindness. And all of them can be helpful to drive you out of that low vibration.
What should we do when we are in anger?
– Treat it naturally. Anger is a common emotion and it is natural. So when you are in anger, please don’t put more stress on yourself. And don’t blame yourself. Receive it naturally.
– Find the ways to express your anger. It is suggested to talk with your best friend. Or just take some exercise. No matter speaking out or sweat is helpful to express your emotion.
– Do something that can cheer you up. If you like cooking, eating, drawing, shopping etc, just do it. When you feel pleased, anger usually goes away.
