"In traditional Chinese medicine, emotions and physical health are intimately connected."

I have checked out this article "Emotions in Traditional Chinese Medicine" and I noted that "emotions and physical health are intimately connected", and different emotions "are each associated with a particular organ in the body". I also learnt that "a diagnosis in traditional Chinese medicine is highly individualized", and "once an organ system is identified, the unique symptoms of the patient determine the practitioner's treatment approach".

While googling to find out more about this subject, I came across this article that shares a similar observation - it says Finnish researchers map how emotions are expressed physically in human bodies".
"(NaturalNews) New research published in the journal Proceedings of The National Academy of Sciences of The United States of America (PNAS) provides a solid basis for understanding how our bodies physically react to various emotional states. Scientists from Aalto University in Finland found that the human body lights up differently on a heat map for each type of emotion, illustrating for the first time how emotions play a definitive role in physical health."

I also learnt from this article below that Chinese medicine such as acupuncture treats physical and emotional trauma.

"Chinese medicine is particularly effective for trauma relief because the method of diagnosis involves searching for the root of a person's distress, rather than merely treating the symptoms. By thoroughly investigating the cause of a patient's stress disorder, origin and continuing source of discomfort and fear is recognized and more readily conquered. Whether a treatment occurs quickly after a traumatic event has been experienced or years later, acupuncture can help relieve tension".

Another article I found focuses on liver health harmony and the link to physical and emotional wellbeing - I learnt from the article about some foods and herbs that are good for the liver.  
"We get a new liver every 6 weeks, and with the proper nourishment, care and some lifestyle changes, we can avoid or reverse many of these problems. Everything in the body can and will return to a state of balance when provided with the right support.
Foods that are good for the Liver: red beets, carrots, zucchini/squash, raw green leaf vegetables, tart cherries (sour is cooling & tonifies liver), black cherry juice, lemon water, rose hips, wolfberry, aka lyceum.
Bitter Herbs good for the Liver: Yellow dock, Dandelion, Blessed Thistle, Milk Thistle, Burdock, Oregon Grape".
