“A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy, jealousy, and wrath are like rottenness of the bones.”
As we can see this scripture states directly that calm and peace are life and health to the body. When frustration, anger or other stress related emotions take hold, it plays havoc on our digestion according to Dr. Kenneth Koch MD, professor of medicine at Wake Forest U Baptist Medical Center. When stress activates the “fight or flight” response the central nervous system shuts down the blood flow needed for digestion. Stress can cause inflammation in the gastrointestinal system and it is said that inflammation is indicated in every disease known to man.
Envy, jealousy and wrath (anger) rot the bones – how much more plain can it be?
