Some science behind the scenes

Types of hurt and organs

In the system of Chinese medicine and that of the Ayurvedic system, there is an acceptance that negative emotion and various forms of emotional hurt trigger disease.

In the observations we have collected there is proof of this. 

Dr Daniel Hack Tuke [Daniel Hack Tuke, M.D., M.R.C.P]  is perhaps one of the greatest contributors of evidence of the power mind has over matter.  Although we have only a representational selection of the observations he meticulously collected on the site, [a selection based on trying to provide examples for as many illnesses as possible], his book Illustrations Of The Influence Of The Mind Upon The Body In Health And Disease, Designed To Elucidate The Action Of The Imagination contains hundreds and hundreds of examples, all of which were obtained from publications like the Lancet, Elements of Physiology. By J. Miiller, M.D, The Edinburgh Medical and Surgical Journal, The Psychological Journal, Edited by Dr. Forbes Winslow and The Journal of Mental Science, Edited by Drs. Maudsley and Sibbald. 

Around 90  sources are listed including American works such as the American Journal of Insanity and French works such as La Medecine des Passions,  Par J. B. F. Descuret.  The book is over 850 pages in length and it is packed with case studies as opposed to conclusions.

Disease is ultimately physically caused by the following and we have considerable proof on the site that this list is correct:–

  • Pathogens – viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites;
  • Toxins such as heavy metals, insecticides, pesticides and pharmaceuticals like immunosuppressants, and vaccines
  • Heavy metals – lead, cadmium, aluminium, mercury etc including metal implants and dental amalgam fillings
  • Radiation of all sorts – heat/cold and electromagnetic emissions from mobile phones and wi-fi
  • ‘Bad air’ – hypoxia in other words, poor air quality and lack of oxygen and other needed gases
  • Physical hurt such as a wound or scratch, and those caused by surgery or an accident;
  • Nutritional deprivation – both overloading and under nourishment  

And it appears that negative emotion of high intensity damages organs.  Thus jealousy is as good as grief, loneliness is as good as envy, hate is as good as insecurity at provoking illness. 

Despite the perceived link between types of emotional hurt and the organ affected, there is no evidence of this.  Thus there is not a ‘seat’ of each type of emotion.  The liver is not the seat of cowardice, the gall bladder is not the seat of malice, the spleen is not the seat of rage.  Unless we think it is. 

Thus what determines which organ is damaged by the mixture of negative emotion and pathogen is our subconscious belief of where we have been hurt.  Thus by saying or believing that we have a broken heart when grief, rejection or unrequited love appear, that is exactly where the disease strikes. 

“Thought strongly directed to any part tends to increase its vascularity, and consequently its sensibility. Associated with a powerful emotion, these effects are more strikingly shown. And, when not directed to any special part, an excited emotional condition induces a general sensitiveness to impressions” [Hack Tuke]

If we have been humiliated as a man by our wife or girl-friend running off with someone else, disease often appears to strike at the reproductive organs – men get prostate cancer at worse or BPH. 

Thus for those using the TCM and Ayurvedic systems [or even Louise Hay’s system] , with the belief in the correlation between organ and hurt, the belief will be reinforced

The negative emotion has the effect of weakening the immune system.  But the intensity of the emotion also has a direct ‘electrical effect’ on the nerves, and there is some justification in the term being ‘burnt out’ when it comes to stress.  Pathogens and toxins will then tend to migrate to the weakest organ.

In contrast, positive emotions – love, friendship, empathy, compassion, forgiveness, and so on all appear to boost the immune system.  Thus listening to music appears to be healing, because it fills us with joy and happiness – two positive emotions.  Similarly making love [when it is genuine, thus not ‘having sex’] is also a positive contributor towards immune system boosting. 

Overload [hurt and disease] and suppression [healing].
