Oriental Medicine and Your Emotions

In many cases, excessive or inappropriate amounts of emotion can be caused by a breakdown in organ function, not simply an imbalance in brain chemistry, which is the typical western medical view of emotional imbalances. The view of western medical theory can be quite  limited and, ironically, leads to further difficulty in resolving the problem.  For example, if one takes a medication for depression (which may be caused by a liver imbalance) and that medication reduces liver function, it makes it more difficult to treat the depression.  This is often why a person may take a medication for the length of their life… and the issue never fully resolves!
