Reflexology For The Spirit

Emphysema, a Spiritual Disease connected to Stress

Spiritually, emphysema is a fear of absorbing life.  You are worn out with stress and worry because of your sense of foreboding.  For you, life is  a struggle and you cannot live in the moment.  Grief is woven in all this.

When smoking damages lungs so severely that breathlessness and fast breathing occur,  you have emphysema.  You may have a chronic cough.
