How Chinese medicine uses emotions to track organ health

This video is meant to expand your general knowledge about living a healthy life and is NOT a substitute for seeking medical advice. Please consult with your doctor before making changes in your health practices, diet and self-care.

In this video, licensed acupuncturist and Chinese medicine physician, Dr. Alex Heyne explains how, in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), each of our ‘solid’ organs is associated with a specific emotion.

Within this healing framework, therefore, pathological emotional states can offer many clues about underlying conditions.

The negative emotions associated with the five key organs in TCM are as follows:

  • The heart – excessive joy
  • The spleen – anxiety, worry, overthinking
  • The lungs – grief
  • The kidneys – fear
  • The liver – anger
