Traditional western medicine treats symptoms. If we are depressed, we get a pill for depression. If we are having panic attacks, we get a pill for anxiety. If we have aches and pains, we get pain relievers and muscle relaxants.
The truth is that stress causes many of our health problems. What causes stress? Some obvious examples are feeling threatened, feeling fearful, or being under pressure. However, a significant cause of long term stress that you may not be aware of is living a life with persistent anger, guilt, hurt, or resentment These feelings may be so pervasive that we just think of them as a normal, immutable, part of our lives.

These feelings persist when we are unable to forgive the person we believe is responsible for the events causing these feelings.
