The liver is considered by many to be the seat of primitive emotion in the body, sort of an "emotional brain bank" where emotions are processed, and sometimes stored, in the liver, gallbladder, visceral organs, or other areas of the body. While esoteric in the extreme, it may be beneficial to focus not only on the physicality of your pain, and physical remedies, but also on the emotionality of your pain. How you choose to process the traumatic injustices of your life, no matter how great or small, will have an affect on your physicality. Interestingly, many people report huge emotional release when certain areas of the liver are cleared of congestion. This is also true of the gallbladder, an organ that resists cleansing until much work has already been done on the liver. Considering how emotions become trapped in our bodies, and how we might release these emotions, may be of some benefit.
