Sadness

 

Sadness relates to the Lung. Before it affects the Lung sadness passes through the Heart. Intense or chronic sadness is experienced with a physical sensation of pressure in the Heart or heart restriction. This pressure  eventually obstructs the Lung as the Heart and the Lung share one anatomical space (the Upper Jiao).

Sadness depletes the energy of the Lungs (Lung Qi), manifesting with symptoms such as breathlessness and tiredness. Lung Qi governs the so-called “protective Qi”, responsible for protecting the body from pathogens. Thus sadness may affect the overall immunity of the body and can make one prone to frequent colds or allergies.

One way to counteract sadness is to tonify the Lung (to learn more about the Lung from the perspective of TCM go to the Physiology chapter).

 

Another way to counteract sadness is to accept its cause.
