Worry

 

Worry relates to the Lung and consumes the Lung energy (Lung Qi). The Lung governs the breathing thus consumed Qi by worry will manifest in breathlessness, shallow or irregular breathing.

The physical sensation of worry resembles “having a knot” in the stomach. Thus worry also relates to the Spleen/Stomach partner organs. Long-term worry may cause gastro-intestinal problems such as poor digestion, gas, bloating, gastritis, ulcer, etc.

Worry can be counteracted by tonifying both the Lung and the Spleen Note: in traditional Chinese medicine the Spleen is referred to as the collective work of some organs and systems participating in the digestion rather than the anatomical organ spleen. To learn more review the materials about the Spleen and the Lung in the Physiology chapter.

 

Another way to counteract worry is to generate confidence in oneself and the world as a whole.
