Current scientific medical research is discovering how our thoughts and words influence our bodies and the effect that these have on our cells, our DNA and our health.
It has been shown that, at a molecular level, suppressing emotions can lead to individual cell receptors becoming blocked. These blocks then interfere with the normal healthy communications between cells, and this impairs many body functions. Conversely, allowing the feelings and emotions to flow unblocks the receptors and helps maintain health.
