The effects of Negative Emotions on our body and mind

Society is slowly beginning to understand the complex interactions between mental and physical health.

Negative emotions manifest into chemical reactions that can affect your body by bringing more stress into your system and decreasing your immunity.

But POSiTiVE emotions actually release neuropeptides that help fight stress and other potential health problems.

Our body releases chemicals when we experience different feelings. If we are happy, our brain releases serotonin, dopamine or oxytocin; if we are stressed, our body releases cortisol.

Cortisol is known as ‘the stress hormone’ because stress activates cortisol secretion. Chronically high cortisol levels can cause sleep problems, a depressed immune response, blood sugar abnormalities, and even abdominal weight gain.

This video explains how your brain works with anxiety and stress on a biological level including emotional responses.


In this world there are really only 2 primary emotions, Love and Fear, with lots of others in between.

Love clearly is the emotion that we all desire in one form or another; Love of Self, Love of Others, Love of Nature, Love of Music, Love of many things….

Love is what we all aim for, whereas Fear is something we wish to diminish.

Fear is actually a good emotion to have with a useful response, essential to human survival. However, anxiety is a fear of something that cannot be located in space and time, ie fear of the unknown! Worrying about something that we don’t actually know is going to happen.

If you are suffering with anxiety, stress or general unhappiness, please make an appointment to come and see me for some Coaching/Hypnotherapy/Healing sessions.  We can work together to access the areas in your sub-conscious mind that can help eleviate these negative emotions.

      Hi there Patrick,thank you for connecting with me. I’m actually based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Hypnotherapy can certainly work to communicate with your unconscious mind in ascertaining the emotions behind the cancer and to help build up your immune system.
      My suggestion is to have a look locally for a recommended hypnotherapist and explain your medical history to them.
      I’m not teaching you to suck eggs, but have you read about complementary ways of helping deal with cancer? I know that surgery has removed the tumour etc but you need a plan to help maintain perfect health.
      If I can help in anyway, I’m happy to do so :)
      Sending healing thoughts to you Patrick, just remember the power of the mind is extraordinary in healing.
      Kind regards

    I’ve been suffering from Sciatica for months now! So that’s pretty scary to think it could be caused by such things!… I need it GONE!
