Eczema Skin Symptoms Triggered From Repressed Anger

By: Evelyn Lim

Natural health experts say that eczema skin symptoms can also be triggered by repressed anger, other than environmental or food factors. What happens is that when you keep your pent up emotions inside, your body seeks to find ways to release these toxins. An overload would cause erruptions that appear as eczema skin symptoms.

Here is an analogy to see the link between emotions and what can be observed at the skin level. When you experience warmth and love, your skin blushes and show a pinkish and radiant hue. Then you are afraid, feel ashamed or filled with anger, you break out in cold sweat and your skin looks flushed.

When your eczema skin symptoms manifest as red and inflammed rashes, there may well be an underlying fire fuelled by suppressed anger. If you have felt emotionally spent, you are more likely to see dryness and even cracking of your skin. In contrast, an excess of emotions can make the skin oily. If you have conflicting emotions, overwhelming feelings of grief and anguish, self-hatred, or inappropriate passions, then you may find yourself breaking out in the form of rashes or red blemishes.

Repressed anger exerts an enormous toll on your body and you suffer from other related effects as well. It easily triggers migraines and ulcers, and in the long term, to strokes or tumours. Prolonged fears and repressed angers increase tensions and stresses. As you well know, stress can aggravate and worsen your bodily reactions causing breakouts in eczema, shingles, psoriasis, or arthritis.

In fact, natural health experts propose that the first body system that reacts to repressed anger is the gastro-intestinal or digestive system. If this is the case, it is not hard to imagine that you will experience difficulties in swallowing, nausea, vomitting, diarrhea, constipation, or gastric ulcer from not letting go of your emotions. Also do bear in mind the repressed anger is the most common cause of ulcerative colitis.

An interesting study of 128 patients in a hospital outpatient department was conducted to determine the relationship between repressed anger and the twelve symptoms or diseases. The study showed that among the 27 patients who suffered eczema, eczema flared up whenever they were not able to handle the intense frustration of being prevented from doing something or simply interfered with.

Hence, if you are interested to reduce eczema skin symptoms, consider for a moment if you are also having some form of repressed anger. If you do, then it is important to find ways to channel your anger into something healthier and more creative. Open up by talking to your loved ones about your problems, or find outlets that can help you release the unspent emotions that continue to suffocate you.
