According to the World Health Organization, health is defined as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, not just as an absence of a disease.
In holistic medicine, health is a consideration of the complete person, body, mind and soul combined. There is a strong linkage between our emotions and physical health that causes pain and disease.
Through the years, scholars before us have studied emotions and diseases so well that they have noticed a certain pattern and linkage to it. According to Dr. William Osler, a Canadian physician, “It is much more important to know what sort of a patient has a disease than what sort of a disease a patient has.” Emotions and diseases are so interconnected that we can now map the turmoil and disharmony that is almost constant to the patient who has the disease.
A number of scientific literature have detailed how negativity can harm the body. Chronic stress may alter biological systems that, over time, adds up to “wear and tear” and, eventually, illnesses, such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Chronic anger and anxiety may disrupt cardiac function by changing the heart’s electrical stability, hastening atherosclerosis and increasing systemic inflammation.
These are some recommended measures to ensure an emotionally healthy life and ward off diseases— exercise, laughter, be in the moment, listen to music, dark chocolate and rewarding yourself more often.
