Can too much JOY in Your Life make You Sick?

February 22nd, 2016

Living in the Western world, we all believe that

the emotion of joy is a good thing. Even our songs

exonerate joy, “Joy To The World, “You Are My

Joy”, “Joy! Joy! Joy!”, “Your Joy Is My Love”,

“Let’s Dance To Joy Division”, just to name a few.

According to Webster’s, joy is “a feeling of great

pleasure and happiness, and delight”.

Too much Joy can injure the Heart

Too much Joy can injure the Heart

When one is excessively joyful, the spirit

scatters and can no longer be stored. Joy refers

to a state of agitation or over-excitement and

over-stimulation. This can lead to problems of the

heart and disturb the fire (yang), water (yin),

and balance of the entire body, causing symptoms

of insomnia, mania, palpitations, worry, tension

and excessive consumption. Moderation is the key

word here – not too hot, not too cold, not too

dry, not too wet, not too fast, not too slow. If

you think of someone who is manic, they have

trouble sleeping, they may talk excessively and

very fast, they may have trouble connecting with

other people and it leads to depression, and they

go up and down like a yoyo. On the other hand, too

little joy can injure the heart as well. Cold-hearted people

will have an excessive craving and can’t stop buying,

eating or whatever they are obsessing on at the moment.

I know a fellow who can’t stop his mind. He is

brilliant and quite successful in material things.

He can’t sleep, can’t stop buying things, and is

obsessive-compulsive. And now, the heart fire is

causing problems with his earth element, the

stomach and the spleen. This has put the poor guy

on antidiabetic medicine for the rest of his life.

From the outside, you would imagine that he has a

great life, but the obsessive behavior is causing

more health problems than you could shake a stick

at. Overthinking is causing the sleeping problems

and the tendency to over-consume. This is a form

of mania and can go into depression, headaches,

and dizziness.

The heart is fire and the kidneys are water. If

the heart is excessive, the water of the kidney is

depleted, bringing up the emotion of fear and

worry. This situation can be a time bomb if not

corrected. But it’s not hopeless. There are

meditations, exercises and foods that will help

bring the body and mind back into balance. I would

start out by getting a copy of a few of my

best-selling and most effective programs, “The

Internal Mantra Program”

and “The Recharging Qi Gong Program”

When practiced on a regular basis, you can live a

long and happy life and eliminate a slew of health


I wish you the best in your Health, Wealth, and


Dr. Wu Dhi

P.S. If you get both of the programs, “The

Internal Mantra Program”

and “The Recharging Qi Gong Program”

I’ll send you 2 of the unpublished meditation

programs as a FREE gift.
