The Emotion-Link, referring to buried emotions and changeable personality traits, is the main factor that affects one's health and lifestyle choices. Addressing these emotional and personality aspects is crucial for creating lasting change and resolving health issues.
While diet and exercise play a role in health, they are seen as secondary to the emotional and personality factors that guide lifestyle choices. The course does not focus primarily on prescribing specific exercise or diet plans but instead aims to help individuals deal with emotional blocks that may interfere with making common sense lifestyle choices.
Buried emotions purposefully cause illness and healing requires addressing these buried emotions and being open to change. Seeking quick fixes or relying solely on pills, diets, or treatments without addressing the underlying emotional aspects can lead to temporary relief but may not result in long-term healing.
The Emotion-Link is a path that explores the biology of feelings, beliefs, and personality and how they are connected to illness.

To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. Ralph Waldo Emerson

THE E-LINK - Developed by Dr. Mark Colafranceschi
Science has established that there is a chemical/nutritional link to the majority of health issues. Medical science has established that over ninety percent of cancers, the majority of heart disease and diabetes are diet and consumption-related. It is also established that there is a physical connection to illness, or injury, from not enough exercise to over-exertion.
The majority of illness is a combination of physical and chemical issues with one other missing piece of the puzzle we call, the link. Science has established that emotions are linked to the majority of illnesses.
With emotions/feelings being the starting point for illness, the contradiction is we spend most of our time focusing on pills, genetics, and treatments to resolve illness. The cycle of trying different or more pills or treatments to improve your health can stop, by learning the eLink and doing the Ultimate Exercise.
The eLink is the main reason your condition keeps coming back or fails to be resolved. Your buried emotions and changeable personality traits are what dictate your lifestyle. Changing your diet or exercising is almost always short-lived if buried feelings (eLink) are not addressed. There is no doubt that diet and exercise create health or illness. However, the primary cause of an illness is emotions and personality that guide your diet and lifestyle choices. This Course/Map does not tell you to exercise or diet, rather it helps you deal with the blocks that interfere with common sense lifestyle choices. Buried emotions purposefully cause illness. However, many don’t believe the opposite – that overcoming these buried emotions and personality issues will allow you to heal. Healing requires that we address buried emotions, it requires being open to change. At first, your knee-jerk reaction may be to ignore the stress that caused the anxiety or weight gain, etc., and look for a pill or diet that makes the pain go away. This is what holistic and medical doctors do - they convince and sell you pills, diets, and treatments, ignoring the cause. Confusion is created when a small percentage of drugs, diets, pills, or treatments give short-term relief. Addressing buried emotions and changeable personality traits is what this work does to create lasting change.
Most people get lost at this point. They are brainwashed that their condition is not personality or emotion-based; instead, they believe it is genetic or bad luck. There is only 4-6 percent of conditions that are caused by genetics and fall outside this scope. Your anxiety, depression, heart problem, weight problem, aches and pains, and over ninety percent of cancers are not genetic or bad luck. Any honest and educated doctor must agree with this fact. Your holistic and medical doctors want you to believe otherwise to sell you pills and treatments. A full explanation follows in this course. Each organ, limb, and system of our body has a purpose. Some are very obvious like our eyes allow us to see, ears hear, and others are less so - as the purpose of our kidney or skin. The E-Link will connect, for example, ear problems with what we possibly don’t want to hear, or back problems with feeling unsupported or wanting to back out of something.
The connections are real. The emotional connections are evolutionary and date back thousands of years. In the 1980s, medical doctors and the media became vocal when they connected ulcers in the stomach to the emotion of ‘worry.’ This awareness became accepted among the medical community, and the incidence of ulcers decreased tremendously. The apparent reason was the awareness of the eLink. When people felt worried, their eLink’s attention prevented them from holding the emotion in their stomach, thus preventing the ulcer. At that time, it was safe to admit your worry instead of burying it in your stomach. Today, many people may not have heard this from their doctor. Two things are certain: our mind and body are connected, and epigenetics (lifestyle) is of more significant influence than genetics. Our nervous system connects our brains, endocrine system, and immune system to each cell in our body. This work is connecting our behavior, feelings, emotions, and personality that triggers an immune response. This is also connected with the nervous system storing and organizing buried feelings, and you have the eLink. The connection between emotions and personality traits with specific ailments such as cancers, heart disease, and diabetes is complicated. Emotions and personality lead us to behaviors that cause illness. This is not to say the buried emotion directly caused the condition; however, causality will almost always connect emotions to your condition.
A couple of examples of common conditions studied in medicine are:
1. Heart: “The role of personality in coronary heart disease (CHD) first came to prominence nearly 50 years ago with the concept of type A behavior, a compound of hostility, impatience, competitiveness, and dominance." Overt behavior pattern in coronary disease. Detection of overt behavior pattern A in patients with coronary disease by a new psychophysiological procedure. The proximate cause is clogged arteries, nutrient depletion, etc.
2. Diabetes: "Extraversion and conscientiousness can help control blood sugar while anxiety and negative emotions have detrimental effects on glycemic control." The proximate cause is the destruction of pancreatic enzymes by eating processed foods. If it is true that emotions are connected to illness, what is the purpose of making ourselves sick with buried feelings? The work below will set out to explain the biological purpose and connect the purpose of illness connected to human consciousness. We are taught that there is no constructive purpose to your illness or condition, be it anxiety, depression, weight gain or high blood pressure, etc. This will lead you to search for pills and treatments. Once your condition's purpose is explained, covering symptoms or conditions with pills and treatments becomes a painful option.
