Every emotion triggers hormonal secretions and this without knowing the rational brain. Joy, happiness floods you with a wave of endorphins, while worries and tensions attract you in a whirlwind of stress hormones. The center of all emotions is located in the limbic system (cerebral formation). Here, emotions are decoded biochemically and labeled as pleasant or unpleasant. The reception of emotions is done in the hypothalamus, which then act on the pituitary (conductor of the orchestra of the hormonal system). Following a local or remote order, there is a discharge into the bloodstream of hormones of stress or happiness. The immune system does not get rid of this influence, so the intensity of emotions reverts to physical health. The intense and repeated healing of feelings of jealousy, despair, fear, hatred or violence, causes psychological suffering and as if not enough, organic affection.
