Life can sure be a challenge. And sometimes those challenges can get overwhelming and cause emotional problems.

Emotional Problems are a general term that covers a wide range of mental issues, including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and personality disorders. There are also a wide range of issues that are thought to be responsible for emotional problems, including genetics, environmental factors and chemical and hormonal imbalances. Typical symptoms include fatigue, loss of focus and interest, changes in eating habits and problems sleeping.

Since there are a number of conditions that fall under the heading of emotional disorder, treatment is always on a case-by-case basis. Likewise, the symptoms of a person suffering from an emotional disorder are different in every case, depending on a combination of a person’s biological and personality makeup. One can think that emotions are how thoughts and chemicals actually feel. A sensory experience part to the thoughts and chemicals we are made of. I agree with this line of thought. Feels right! Choosing your thoughts carefully, and watching your diet, will improve things dramatically. This is a process of discovery, as you will go through levels of progress with regards to both areas as you proceed. Impeccable thought is a work in progress, as is diet choices. Start where you are and make smart improvements as best you understand what is “smart” at this point in your progress. What is good for me is different than what may be good for you today. We each need to pick our own way as best we can.

Acupuncture does help to identify causes and relevant events with effects residing in the body memory. It is good to pinpoint some of the stressed and traumatized areas, release and reduce the levels of stress, so a new level of calm and comfort is gained. Point sites may be on the upper back, neck, lower back, hands or feet. The pathways involved have their own exit points which may be chosen to be treated. A common exit area chosen is at the shoulder – neck area. The “windows of the sky” points do release a lot of stored tension.

Acupuncture is good for reducing anger, fear, sadness, worry, anxiety, depression, and stress of all kinds.
