Confronting Bach’s 7 Emotional Groups and TCM’s 7 Emotional Factors

I have taken the liberty to confront the seven Emotional Groups listed by Dr Edward Bach with the seven Emotional Factors of Traditional Chinese Medicine, not only because they both mention number 7, but also because I believe there could be a correlation between the mental/psychic sufferings highlighted by Dr. Bach and the physical/physiological sufferings derived by the emotions listed in TCM.

Only experience will tell if these correlations are to be considered useful. In the meantime, I am hereafter giving a simple listing, hoping that it could be inspiring for those who want to make use of it.
