This chapter helps readers to realize that, at the energetic level, mental and physical functions are two sides of the same energetic balance of the internal organs. Every internal organ has a specific impact on certain mental functions and emotions via its energetic connection with a part of the brain. One can hardly treat physical dysfunction without affecting certain mental functions and vice versa. What has caused the physical dysfunction may also cause the mental illness. This chapter describes how anger, joy, grief, worry, and fear affect internal organs like the Liver, Heart, Lungs, Spleen, and Kidney, and how the dysfunction of these internal organs causes disturbance to a patient’s consciousness, unconsciousness, thinking, judgment, and willpower.
