Some thing that is not really commonly discussed is the spectrum of emotion from positive to negative, and how this spectrum is simplified into two basic emotions, which are love and fear. From these two base emotions we derive the plethora of other more specified versions of the two. For example happiness, trust, acceptance, and hope all derive from the root of love. Where as depression, anxiety, anger and guilt all come from the root of fear. The importance of grasping this understanding is to find the true root cause of what ever you are feeling whether it be positive or negative. The positive emotional base understanding is useful for inducing or triggering positive emotions to combat negative situations. Where as the negative emotional base understanding can give us insight to alleviate negative emotions and prevent them from effecting our lives. The two are incredibly useful when one can understand correlation between what the base feeling is and where it indeed comes from, i.e the situation itself that the base emotion manifested itself from, you now can use the root of this emotion to your advantage. This will give you power over your reactions and responses to the root cause itself, which is the beginning of taking control over your life and how you react to the many situations that you will go through.
This will be particularly helpful when it comes to preserving your health, as the effects of emotions, especially the negative, and the reactions they can have within your physical body. The most obvious effect of negative emotion that causes health problems is stress. Stress is the normal reaction the body has to imbalance. Everyone from western doctors and medicine to alternative healers can agree that stress ravages the body. Most of the damage caused by stress is induced by the release of stress hormones, which can incapacitate the body's ability to heal and repair itself. Most of this damage comes from the stress hormone known as Cortisol which is produced by the adrenal gland. This hormone increases ones blood sugar levels, suppresses the immune system, and can even cause decrease within bone formation causing a host of health problems and can be probably blamed as one of the culprits of many ongoing and serious health problems today. Many things can increase the production of this hormone in the body such as caffeine, becoming burnt out or over working the body and mind, serve trauma, and commuting. But don't fear, because there are many things we can also do to reduce the high levels of cortisol that may be lurking in our systems. Some of those things are the intake of omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, vitamin C, black tea, music therapy, massage therapy, crying, laughing, and having sex. All these things in balance, can help to combat the negative affects of the stress hormone cortisol. Another hormone associated with stress is norephinphrine, which increases your heart rate, can cause hyperventilation, and has been linked to depression as well as adhd. Foods to avoid that can increase this hormone are meat, eggs, dairy, and nuts. There are other hormones that can be induced by stress including GH the growth hormone for more information on this and other hormones associated with stress and any effects of it you can visit these sites and I encourage you to do your own independent research!

Ultimately what must be understood is the total effects and the depths that emotions can have on the physical body, and that remaining in a constant negative mood can induce negative effects on our health. Leading us in a downward spiral of stress into a destructive patterns of behavior. So to combat the negative and unwanted effects of negative emotion one must truly deal with the root causes of it. Which is almost always some form of the emotion of fear, you must understand how what you are experiencing relates to that fear. Then take steps to identify where this fear comes from. We must make moves to let love into our lives to remedy the fearful parts of ourselves. For example with the fear of abandonment, reacting out of that fear can cause further damage in the situation by the symptoms like; accusation, clinging, and leaving for fear of being left, causing the same reality it was meant to avoid. See when in a state of fear we can only become destructive, which lends no solution or remedy to any of lifes problems. So we must eliminate the state of fear itself in order to overcome the obstacles it has created. Things like speaking about the problems sharing where it comes from and how it can make us feel, and understanding the negative effect of it can help us to begin the process of eliminating this fear. Fear destroys because it gives you a sense of hopelessness but when we begin to dissect it, understand where it comes from, and how we can fix it it no longer holds any power over us. We must use information and options to help us as tools to combat what seems to be the unknown. Easing our minds and bodies in to a state of peace and happiness.
