Emotions and Blood Quality

Posted on by Denny Waxman

\In macrobiotics we look at illness as a developmental progression. The first major stage, which is not really an illness itself in many cases, is our blood starting to become imbalanced. Our blood, which has hemoglobin, iron containing protein at the center, is important for maintaining our direction in life. When our blood quality is strong, it is easier to maintain a good direction. When our blood quality starts to become weaker, it is easier to lose our direction. Also, our sensitivity is affected. Once we have a disorder with our blood, which includes allergies and skin diseases, we become much more emotional than we were before and emotional sensitivity starts to change. We start to become more sensitive, overly sensitive, or start to lack sensitivity in certain areas. It can go from one extreme or the other.

From there, illness passes to the next level, emotional disorders. Here, emotional imbalances, which started on a previous level of blood, start to become more fixed or deeper. This then becomes our state of being, where we have free-floating fears or anxieties and become more depressive or angered. Our view of life or our approach to life starts at this point to be affected, in the area of so-called emotional disorders. Finally, from emotional disorders, we develop organ or gland problems. This is the area where most modern problems fall, heart disease as well as diabetes and chronic hypoglycemia. Intermittent hypoglycemia we can classify on the level of blood.

It is not by accident that emotions are between our blood quality and our organs or gland quality. Emotions play a kind of balancing or harmonizing role in our lives. We will look at this more next week.

Denny and Susan Waxman with James BrolinSusan and Denny with James Brolin, (Executive Producer) on the set of the film “Standing Ovation” which was shot in Philly, New York and New Jersey. Susan prepared macrobiotic meals and snacks for the Hollywood cast and crew while they were in the area.

When you see the movie you’ll know how important that energy was.

Film Producer Diane Kirman and Director Stewart Raffill were knowledgeable about macrobiotics and its health enhancing benefits from Denny and Susan helping their father overcome vocal cord cancer in the past.
