Anger is considered a disease-causing agent in traditional medicine when it is excessive. Under normal circumstances, the emotion can be a positive way in which to express one’s fire, which is a natural part of human nature, but it can quickly get out of hand if we are not conscious and disciplined in its use.
The organ that is traditionally associated with anger is the liver, and much of the treatment for excessive anger focuses on this organ.
Treatment Plan for Anger
Because anger is an expression of fire, it is generally assumed that cooling liver herbs are most appropriate.
