Employee Assistance Program → Shady Grove Health Tips → Negative Emotions
Researchers have scientifically linked negative emotions (anger, hostility, resentment, bitterness, self-hatred, unforgiveness, and anxiety) to cardiovascular disease and diseases related to the immune system. Also, studies have highly correlated emotions with infections, allergies, and autoimmune diseases. Not only do toxic emotions impede the healing process, they compound the effects of sickness by adding new biochemical processes the body must struggle to overcome. This is especially true when it comes to autoimmune diseases.
