Exploring the Mind and Body Connection -- Author Pinpoints Hidden Link between Emotions and Physical Disorders

Source: AuthorHouse

FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 6, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Life evokes powerful emotions. From the joy that brims at the birth of a child to the sorrow that flows after the death of a loved one to the reactions caused by daily interactions, all humans feel to some degree. But is there a point at which these feelings can physically harm a person? Author Cairo P. Rocha answers this question in his new book Anger goes up, Fear goes down - Emotions and the hidden link: Ancient healing principles and treatments that can change your life (now available through AuthorHouse).
"We leave the 20th century with the idea that never in humankind's history has so much been accomplished in such a relatively short period of time," Rocha writes. "On the other hand, with all our basic material needs satisfied, the emotional issues have never been so strongly present in people's daily lives."
While he acknowledges the essential nature of emotions as a part of human existence, Rocha draws from the wisdom of ancient Chinese medicine to identify how feelings of sadness, anger and even happiness can link to physical disorders. For example, as the "Theory of the Five Elements" demonstrates, anger injures the liver; excessive joy injures the heart; grief and sadness injure the lungs; worry injures the spleen; and fear injures the kidneys. In turn, unhealthy kidneys can also manifest externally through fear, thus creating a vicious cycle. Rocha also reveals the hidden link that ties the mind and body together.
In Anger goes up, Fear goes down, readers can enjoy an informative and fascinating guide to ancient medicinal principles that is easy to understand and implement. Now, all those interested in holistic, proactive health measures can identify the connection between mind and body, detect early signs of disease and understand the internal mechanism of their emotions.
Rocha has been teaching and practicing acupuncture and related natural healing therapies since 1983. He holds a doctorate in natural sciences from the University of New Mexico and a Doctor of Oriental Medicine degree from the Tokyo Acupuncture Moxibustion and Jusei College in Japan. He has traveled extensively, studying in Germany, France, the United Kingdom and the United States and has presented workshops in the Bahamas and other international locations. Anger goes up, Fear goes down is his first book.
