How to manage your health by managing your emotions!
“The western world separates the body from the mind. If someone has mental problems, he goes to a psychologist. It is different in traditional Chinese medicine, which focuses on the human being as a whole, both physiological and psychological. They believe that emotions and body are coherent, they create unity. Disharmony of the body influences the disharmony of emotions. And vice versa. The body and mind are inextricably linked together." says Dr. Karolina Kubas, nature therapist.
Qi could be translated as energy flow figuratively, is believed to be a vital force forming part of you in Chinese tradition. The concept is non-scientific and it is not verified! Dr. Karolina Kubas believes: “Everything is the energy of Qi. The energy that circulates everywhere - in our body, around us, is in food. Free Qi flow is responsible for our health. When Qi flows harmoniously in our body, the body is healthy. When it is stagnant, there is a disease.”

Liver - Anger
The tree element directs the Qi energy upwards. Similarly, when spring sprout the plants when they leave the ground. It's a strong, violent energy. Same with anger, it is also violent and also has "upward movement". When we get angry, Qi energy goes up, we make a red face, we have a squeezed throat. The tension caused by anger weakens the liver.
This may manifest, for example, in worse digestion. Because liver function in Chinese medicine has an indirect effect on digestion. So when we are nervous we should not eat because we will not digest what we swallow. Anger can be expressed by outbreaks or long-term frustration both of which weaken the liver.

Lungs - Regret & Sadness
The lungs are related to the element of metal, and the metal is associated with the emotion of grief, the inability to reconcile with the situation, such as the departure of a loved one. Such situations can over time manifest as asthma, permanent pharyngitis, etc. The feeling of loss affects the permanent throat inflammation. It is said that sadness dissolves Qi. It is the only emotion that can lead directly to death.
Heart - Euphoria
The heart is the first organ to receive emotions. But the emotion of constant euphoria, the joy we could compare to being high on illegal substances, excessive excitement, weakens the heart. And although it may seem strange, it can lead to heart attack. You can also faint with joy or excitement.

Kidney - Fear
Fear is associated with the element water and kidneys. The kidneys in our body are responsible for managing the fluid, but also for the heat of the body. It's our stove, the energy bank. If we have a lot of energy, that means we have strong kidneys. On the other hand, if we lack energy, this may indicate the weakness of the kidneys.
Frequent freezing means weak kidney energy. People who have weakened kidneys usually have some anxiety. Also, excessive fear can damage the kidneys. The movement of the water element is downward motion because the water tends to flow. Anxiety decreases Qi's energy, causing it to "go down". This is could be the reason to urge incontinence.
