The Science of Stress and How Our Emotions Affect Our Susceptibility to Burnout and Disease

In the modern neuroscience of thinking, it’s been taboo for nearly three centuries to even suggest that your emotions steer your physical health. But now, according to an essay in BrainPickings, that may be turning around as science shows again and again that the brain’s actions can, and do, influence immune responses. Your memories may even play a part, the essayist asserts.

There’s no question that your thoughts and emotions, many of which are driven by subconscious beliefs and long-forgotten experiences, are a powerful force that can aid or degenerate your health. When you feel an emotion, what you’re really sensing is the vibration of a particular energy. Each emotion has its own vibratory signature, and when intense emotions are felt, they can become trapped in your body, and can affect your health both positively and negatively, depending on the emotion.

Thinking of your body as a conglomerate of densely packed energies like this, rather than material cells, will also help you understand that an important factor in the root cause of disease is really inharmonious activity at the energetic, subatomic level.

Stress is one major factor that can produce significant amounts of chaos at this underlying energetic level, which is likely why removing stress has such a positive influence on health.

While some people may have an inclination to look for a drug to help them out when they’re stressed, I believe that something called the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) works wonders for a number of problems, including stress. EFT is a form of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments for over 5,000 years, but without the invasiveness of needles.
