Some of the symptoms of buried emotions include:

  1. A feeling of extreme tiredness and general fatigue.
  2. Losing hours in the day because you are preoccupied with daydreams.
  3. Spending all day watching television or lying in bed sleeping.
  4. Losing your lust for life and rarely wanting to talk about how you are feeling or doing.
  5. Blowing up at the smallest of things – almost flying off the handle for no apparent cause.
  6. Focusing on keeping busy rather than on feeling things. If you battle to sit still and have to keep busy all the time, consider that you might be repressing your emotions.
  7. An inability to concentrate for any extended period of time.
  8. Focusing on your ex and what he’s doing rather than focusing on how you are feeling.
  9. Tumultuous relationships with those close to you.

When you repress your emotions your behaviour and reactions to events in the present are really reactions to past events, too. This has a negative effect on your relationships. Not dealing with your emotions over an extended period of time can also lead to major illness in your body.

Dr Pert, Dr Chopra and other scientists like them have spent years researching the lasting impact of repressed emotion in the body. Some of this research appears to suggest that specific emotions can also lead to specific issues in the body.

The full list of negative effects of emotional suppression include:

  1. Voice becomes high pitched
  2. Feel very tired
  3. Hold tension in your body and particularly in your shoulders and jaw
  4. The blocked cell receptors create an acidic environment in the body increasing the propensity for diseases to occur in the blocked areas
  5. Repressing Anger (as it rests mostly in the shoulders and upper back) can lead to an unexpected outbreak of acne, issues with the jaw (as you have clenched your teeth), back and neck tension, and at its worst: cancer and chronic fatigue
  6. Repressing Fear (as fear rests mostly in the stomach) can lead to constipation, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome and other issues of the bowel and colon
  7. Repressing Sadness (as sadness lives mostly in the heart/lung region) can lead to heart/lung problems, throat and voice problems, and issues with your eyes.
  8. There are studies which show that depression can be caused by suppression over a long period of time
  9. Suppression leads to a build up of high Cortisol levels which can lead to weight gain. With the cell receptors being blocked, it’s hard to lose weight as the body holds onto it to protect from toxins in body
  10. High Cortisol impacts the skin leading to premature ageing
  11. Candice Pert also found that toxins in the body can lead to cancers and our emotional states can speed up the spreading of those cancers and toxins throughout the body…

You can’t be fully present with those you love until you have released your emotions from the past. Not dealing with your emotions over an extended period of time can also lead to major illness in your body. Dr Pert, Dr Chopra and other scientists like them have spent years researching the lasting impact of repressed emotion in the body. Some of this research appears to suggest that specific emotions can also lead to specific issues in the body such as:-

  1. Repressing Anger (as it rests mostly in the shoulders and upper back) can lead to an unexpected outbreak of acne, issues with the jaw (as you have clenched your teeth), back and neck tension, and at its worst: cancer and chronic fatigue.
  2. Repressing Fear (as fear rests mostly in the stomach) can lead to constipation, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome and other issues of the bowel and colon.
  3. Repressing Sadness (as sadness lives mostly in the heart/lung region) can lead to heart/lung problems, throat and voice problems, and issues with your eyes.
