There is very little attention given to emotions and feelings in the western world and the role that these play in whether the body is in a place of balance or imbalance. The typical approach is to look at things in isolation and what happens to the body is then a random occurrence.
And while we all have a body and mind, these are often seen as being separate. They are not seen as working together or influencing each other. Through this perspective, the body can be seen as a ‘machine’ that operates randomly and has no reason for becoming out of balance.
