Dr. Kevin Preston | The Emotional Roots of Disease: How Progressive Chinese Medicine Liberates Stuck Energy + Heals Generational Trauma

Wellness + Wisdom | Episode 597

What is the connection between emotions and illness?

Dr. Kevin Preston | The Emotional Roots of Disease: How Progressive Chinese Medicine Liberates Stuck Energy + Heals Generational TraumaDr. Kevin Preston, Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, joins Josh Trent on the Wellness + Wisdom podcast, episode 597, to discuss how each of our organs stores repressed emotions, why we need to listen to our pain before we try to get rid of it, and how emotions get passed on from generation to generation.

“Any emotion that's not been fully integrated creates an energetic blockage in the organs, whether it's fear, anger, or grief. If it's not dealt with, eventually it manifests physically. Any number of symptoms, mentally, emotionally, physically, it means something's blocked, which is why I've always loved acupuncture because it was designed to unblock meridian flow and blood circulation. So when you do treatment, all you're doing is giving the body a little bit of support to unblock the places it's stuck.”Dr. Kevin Preston

Power Quotes From The Show

Organs Store Emotions

“The 5 yin organs are lung, liver, spleen, kidneys, heart. Every one of those organs has a different emotion associated in the Chinese medicine theory. So spleen would be overthinking, excessive contemplation, which is modern phenomena. If you spend all day, all night ruminating in your mind, thinking and obsessing about things, that will damage your spleen because you're taxing that energy system too much.”Dr. Kevin Preston

Generational Fear

“Kindeys store fear. If your ancestors went through horrendous fear, that memory, that imprint, that epigenetic nuance could be imprinted in their body and passed forward to you. That baby may have kidney issues, actual physical kidney issues. They're carrying that lineage of that energy that is just looking to be into the light, it's looking to be resolved.”Dr. Kevin Preston

Healing Your Lineage

“A lot of people don't look deeper because they don't want to find what's there because they are going to need to change things in their life. Sometimes they think, how come I'm the one in my family that's having to heal all this generational trauma? And I think, what a gift, even though it's hard, that it's finding you. That is the seedling, the plant, the energy that's seeking its way as like, oh, this person can. This person holds enough energy, enough compassion, enough love in their heart to heal so many generational aspects.”Dr. Kevin Preston
