Psycho-Neuro-Immunity—The Relationship Between the Mind, Body and Immune System

Psycho-neuro-immunity is the study of how circumstances affect our lives—how the way we interpret events in our lives affects our physical being, our hormones, our neurological pathways and abilities to make rational decisions, our immune systems and our whole beings.

According to traditional Chinese medicine, everything is caused by the emotions. The nature of our reactions to life’s challenges and our emotional responses lead to a variety of symptom pictures.

The changes made in the heart affect the mind; those made to the body affect the emotions; and those shifts made in thoughts and decisions affect your whole being.

Our thoughts affect our words, our words affect our behavior, our behavior creates habits, our habits translate to our personality and our personality dictates our reality. Whatever you are thinking right now is your contribution to the universe in this moment.

Our Approach to Treating Emotional and Mental Anguish

Traditional Chinese Medicine: The Five-Element Theory

In the five-element theory in traditional Chinese medicine, every organ has an associated emotion, color, time of day, season, sensory organ, taste, corresponding body part, element in nature and an associated set of symptoms when out of balance. Acupuncture for depression and acupuncture for anxiety are just two of the many possible treatments available to deal with symptoms of stress.

A couple of examples of this are as follows:

The liver is said to store the emotions, particularly anger, envy and jealousy. It’s associated color is green. The element in nature is wood. Imbalances of the liver manifest in the tendons and muscles, shine through the eyes, and health or imbalance is reflected in the fingernails and toenails. The taste associated with the liver is bitter. Bitter greens can treat liver imbalances.

The kidneys are associated with fear. The color is black, imbalances show up in the knees and low back, and the sensory organs are the ears. The taste is salty and the element is water. Imbalances in the kidneys or the way the body assimilates fluids will be reflected in urinary tract, bladder or even certain hormonal conditions.
