Emotional pain is a reality of life and dealing with raw emotions of anger, hurt, rejection, betrayal and heartbreak is a battle of its own. But the sadder part is, it doesn’t end there in the mind or with your feelings. The mind, the body and the spirit are all interconnected. View it as a paradigm for the human body to keep it healthy. Our digestive, cardiovascular, nervous, immune, reproductive, urinary, endocrine and musculoskeletal systems are all impacted when we are burned out, depressed or distraught over a certain amount of time. According to Dr. Susanne Babbel, a psychologist who specializing in depression: “Studies have shown that chronic pain might not only be caused by physical injury but also by stress and emotional issues.” Think of your first heartbreak and the pain you felt in your chest around your heart. Your emotions were triggering a physical manifestation. Later, we learned to deal with traumas like a broken heart better so we can cope better with trauma. The same hold true for the present. Strong feelings of stress have a negative influence on you all around. Here is the truth on how emotional pain is affecting your body.
