Gastrointestinal Diseases

  • Benjamin B. Wolman

Abstract

The gastrointestinal system is very sensitive to emotional disturbances. From the earliest days of life, the alimentary process is the main source of pleasure and displeasure. Hunger, the intake of food, saturation, and elimination are the leading and most frequent factors of emotional reactions of fear, anger, relief, and joy (Feuerstein, Labbé, & Kuczmierczyk, 1986).
