Trapped Anxiety and Depression and your body

Depression and anxiety are increasingly on the rise within our society. In 2015, 8% of Canadians experience depression, and 12% anxiety symptoms. Pharmaceutical companies are hard at work manufacturing mountains of antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications to serve supply and demand for these disorders. You might find yourself asking, is there another way?

My area of clinical expertise is how imbalanced emotions directly affect our body. People come to me with themes of depression and anxiety disorders, looking for another way to deal with their problem.

The ancients Chinese discovered over 5000 years ago how the vital organs of the body store particular emotions. The Lungs hold sadness, despair and depression, where the kidneys hold fear and anxiety. A person with depression will often have a rounded shoulder posture, and complain of neck, shoulder pain, and even pain the extends down the arms to the elbows and fingertips. This posture will compress the lungs. A person with depression traditionally has a very shallow breath pattern, and can often suffer from lungs conditions such as bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma, etc. 

As you can see as illustrated in this chart, the cycle of creation, the lungs support the kidneys, so if the breath is shallow, this will stress the kidneys and accentuate anxiety symptoms.

Learning how to breathe properly is one of the most effective ways of assisting anxiety and depression. Understanding your emotions affect your body and finding the deep seeded root of your anxiety and depression, pave the way for cellular memory release of these restrictive, sometimes paralyzing patterns.
