“From aChinesemedicineperspective,there’sreallynotevenadistinctionbetweenthemind

Forinstance,eachorgan,explainsMajebe,hasaconnectiontoaspecificemotion.Thelungs,

“Well,theChinesesaw this,andfrom ourperspective,thelungsareassociatedwiththe
emotionofgrief.”Thekidneys,shesays,areassociatedwithshockandfear.“Everybodyhas
heard:‘IwassoscaredIalmostpeedmypants,’”shesays.“InChinesemedicine,fearandshock
basicallyimpactthekidneys.Andwhenthatoccurs,itiscommontolosetheabilitytocontain
andholdtheurine.Soallofthesethingshavebasis.”

Butbeyondthetheoreticalconnectionsbetweenorgansandemotions,theunderlyingconcept
formind-bodymedicinefrom theChineseperspectiveisfairlysimple.
“Everythingthatisimpactingonusphysicallyisgoingtoalsohaveanemotionalimpact”.
