In our social media posts on Instagram we have been going through what emotions effect which body systems and covered the lymphatic system and the immune system – both intertwined….but rather than break all the systems down into posts, I thought I would finish the systems here for you peruse should you wish.
What are the different systems of the body and what roles do they play?
What thoughts and feelings contribute to the breakdown of each system?
Our body systems teach us lessons of empowerment, confidence, love, compassion, forgiveness and much more. You can work with any system as a whole to restore healing by using colours, doing emotional clearing and changing your thinking; or you can focus on particular parts of each system through clearing, taking responsibility and committing to your health.
The more you understand your body and its specific components, the more tools you have to bring it back to health and balance. Healing takes us through many different stages and layers of discovering who we are. Sometimes change happens quickly, at other times we can experience stuckness, frustration and chaos.
Healing occurs on many levels – physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically. And can be done by the use of crystals, oracle cards, essential oils, diet and efficient supplements that support gut biome, energetic work, mindset and physical hands on techniques such as massage.

The Circulatory System
The function of the circulatory system is to carry nutrition and oxygen to every system of the body through a complex network of blood vessels. It provides sustenance and nurturing to your body. It consists primarily of the heart, blood vessels and lymphatic system.
The circulatory system begins to break down when you hold onto anger, fear, self-loathing, criticism, disappointment, loss of confidence, and heartbreak. Here you need to learn to give and receive love.
The Digestive System
The function of the digestive system is to break down food, so that energy is available for the whole body to work optimally. It also absorbs waste products from the body and then excretes these as indigestible food fibre. When the elimination of food is impaired, your health can be adversely affected. The digestive system is mainly made up of the mouth, oesophagus, stomach, small and large intestine, rectum and anus.
The digestive system breaks down when you experience unresolved anger, self-sabotage, fear, indecisiveness, guilt, blame, jealousy, victimhood. Here you need to learn self-empowerment, creativity, how to let go of the old and bring in the new, self-appreciation and nourishment for your heart and soul. Learn to love and holour yourself by practising patience and tolerance.
The Endocrine System
The function of the endocrine system is to produce and release hormones into the blood stream. The hormones then act as messengers that influence almost every part of the body. It plays a significant role in regulating emotions, behaviour, tissue function and metabolism. It promotes growth, stimulates sexual drive, controls temperature. It also helps to repair damaged tissue and generates energy. It consists of the hypothalamus, pituitary, pineal, thyroid and parathyroid glands, thymus and adrenal glands, ovaries, testes and pancreas.
The endocrine system begins to break down when you are feeling unbalanced, stressed, emotional, stuck, confused and frustrated. Here you need to learn how to listen to the messages your body is trying to send. This gives you the opportunity to create a more balanced, healthy and happy lifestyle.
The Muscular System
The function of the muscular system is to endow the body with the ability to move. It also gives the body strength, flexibility and support. In order to work optimally (all 3 types of muscle) they require energy, oxygen, glucose and other nutrients. These substances are transport to the cells during circulation.
The muscular system begins to break down when you carry excessive tension, worry, sadness and responsibility. Too much thinking, anger, work, fear, and lack of confidence and limited support will also weaken your muscles. Here you need to build your inner strength, create a support network for yourself, learn to relax and let go of stress, face your fears and learn to express your feelings.
The Nervous System
The function of the nervous system is to supply the essential communication link between our internal and external worlds. External information is received by the sensory organs of the nervous system and is then transmitted to the brain, which passes it onto the organs, tissues and cells so that they can adjust to changes. The nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) and the nerves (peripheral nervous system).
The nervous system begins to break down when you experience internal and external conflict, stress, fear, strain, blame, negativity and depression. Here you need to learn about relaxation, inner strength, wisdom, personal responsibility and how to develop a sense of humour.
The Reproductive System
The function of the reproductive system is procreation, sexual intercourse, nourishment and life. This system is made up of organs such as the testes, prostrate gland and the penis in males and the ovaries, uterus, breasts and vagina in females.
The reproductive system begins to break down when you feel victimised, wounded by past relationships, guilty, ashamed, humiliated, disgusted, angry and critical. Here you need to learn how to love and value yourself, forgive others, develop self-confidence, let go of negative beliefs and lean to enjoy your sensuality.
The Respiratory System
The function of the respiratory system is to supply oxygen to the blood while at the same time expelling waste gases. By delivering oxygen, the respiratory system enables us to generate energy, move our bodies and grow. This system consists of the sinuses, throat, wind-pipe and lungs.
The respiratory system begins to break down when you carry feelings of loneliness, unworthiness, hate, resentment, bitterness, grief, judgement and anger. Here you need to learn about compassion, forgiveness, love, hope and trust.
The Skeletal System
The function of the skeletal system is to provide support, protection and structure for the body. It protects the other body systems from the external environment. It consists predominately of bones, cartilage, ligaments and tendons.
The skeletal system begins to break down when you judge yourself and others harshly, carry feelings of betrayal, resentment, inflexibility, limitation, bitterness and blame.
Here you have the opportunity to become flexible, self-sufficient, kind, responsible and empowered. You need to learn how to forgive, adapt to new situations with a positive attitude and look for a blessing in every situation that presents itself to you.
The Urinary System
The function of the urinary system s to pass the water within your body through a filtration process, so that the different systems of the body can utilise a clean supply of body fluids. Waste product that are retained in the body lead to disease and death. It consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra.
The urinary system begins to break down when you are feeling pissed off, irritated, angry, bitter and unworthy and also when you carry guilt, fear and a deep-seated belief that something is wrong with you. Her you need to take responsibility for your actions, forgive and let go of anger, work on your self-worth and learn to love and appreciate yourself.
I have a love of books and this is based on The Secret Language of your Body by Inna Segal.
By learning that we can control how our body operates puts us in the drivers seat of our health and wellness journey. Understanding that our emotions are stored in our body (usually the fasica – connective tissue) so restriction is this area ultimately affects the lymphatic system (our garbage system that is suppose to carry the waste away) and therefore the immune system and then every other system in the body via default. Keeping our emotions and feelings in a healthy range rather than a destructive and suppressed mode will go a long way to keeping us physically and emotionally balanced.
At Cinergee we specialise in controlling stress by a range of spa experiences that are designed to take you out of fight and flight (stressful mode) down into rest and digest where all the healing begins.
