The problem with repressed anger is that most people are not fully aware of it, and therefore cannot establish a connection with their physical and emotional suffering.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, blocked emotions greatly affect our bodies. In the case of repressed anger, our liver is the one who suffers the greatest impact.
In this article, we’ll explain the astonishing way of this process and we will give you some remedies so your liver can regain its natural balance.
How do emotions affect us?
Every day we experience various emotions. Whether negative or positive, they are always in relation with the situations we live, whether in a family or professional, for example.
However, people who suffer more negative emotions, because of their personality or a difficult stage in which they are immersed, are at risk of suffering adverse consequences on the physical level.
The consequences that affect us are:
• Exaggerated joy: heart problems.
• Anger: liver problems.
• Concerns and worries: spleen problems.
• Sadness and grief: lung problems.
• Fear: kidney problems.
These physical effects can take the form of a certain discomfort or pain that, in the long term, can turn into chronic diseases.
The imbalance that can undergo on one body part also affects the harmony of the rest of our body.
The liver and suppressed anger
Some particularly sensitive individuals may feel very strongly that their repressed anger is causing discomfort in the chest, like a burning sensation.
These sensations gradually affect the liver, causing a blockage of energy and prevent it from achieving all its tasks properly.
On the other hand, many people think they don’t suffer from anger because they repress it and are not even aware of it.
Many negative emotions can also have the same consequences:
If you noticed that you suffer from some physical problems in the liver, you must realize that this is very likely related to suppressed anger.
Among the most common disorders include:
• Poor digestion of fats.
• Insomnia between 1 and 3 am.
• Pain under the ribs on the right side or at the same height, the right side of your back.
• Vision problems.
• Accentuation of wrinkles on the crow’s feet (http://www.allhealthynews.com/2208/5-aesthetic-natural-secrets-reduce-crows-feet-wrinkles-around-eyes/).
• Yellowish spots on the skin.
• Dark spots on the face.
You still need to keep in mind that the liver problems are also influenced by genetics, by bad habits, stress and other factors.
However, if you think your liver problems are genetic, you must be careful that you are not simply trying to replicate the bad habits of your family.
The first step in treating a health problem is to become aware of the origin of the disorder, as well as the factors that cause it.
In this case, it is essential to learn to identify your emotional reactions and determine if you externalize them or, instead, you repress them.
Repressed anger is difficult to discover until it becomes a clear destabilizing element for your health.
Once you realize this, you need to be more attentive to your daily situations that may be likely to create that emotional reaction.
Bach Flowers can be very helpful to fight against this problem.
Among the variety of floral combinations that exist, here are those that can help you control your emotions and express them at the right time:
- Agrimony (Agrimonia): This flower essence allows you to externalize what you repress. You must take into account that, initially, it may be unpleasant to react that way, but you will eventually get used to it.
- Holly: this essence helps to fight against anger, envy, jealousy, and all the negative feelings more generally.
- Willow: this essence is helpful to curb resentment and bitterness, especially among people who tend to repress their feelings, to blame others and to have pessimistic attitudes.
It is ideal these Bach flower essences to be prescribe by a professional, so they are perfectly tailored to your needs and your personality.
Local application of heat
Here is another remedy that will help you rebalance your liver: local application of heat.
You can achieve this with a hot water bottle or an electric mat, applied directly to the area of your liver just below the ribs on the right side of your body.
The liver is an organ that tends to cool when it is not working properly. By applying this remedy, you give it direct heat and you will also improve your insomnia, nervousness or eyesight.
You can do it every night before you go to sleep for 15 to 20 minutes.
