how to manage anger

Anger has cost a gazillion of lives that can be traced back to the creation at the garden of Eden. Anger is a million times mentioned in the Holy Bible both in the Old and New Testament. It was first accounted in Genesis, a story told by Moses when God was angered by the first man and woman who He created, that disobeyed Him by eating the fruit in the garden of Eden.

Anger is an emotion that will stay until the last breath of the last person on earth. As long as there is life, there is anger.

Anger is backed by science. It is a cause and effect from chemical reactions, triggered by external and internal forces. The human sensory reactions (becoming verbally and physically violent) is the final stage of the chemical activities happening inside our body. Physical activities are the by-product of the feeling of anger. Verbal or physical activities delivered by force is the end result of the chain of chemical reactions that are processed inside our body. The feeling of anger is triggered when the sensory receptors such as Eyes, Ears, Nose, Skin & Tongue receive information from external forces through the five senses such as the sense of sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste.

How the feeling of anger is formed.

Important Terminologies

  1. Gland – A gland is a body organ that makes hormones. Glands belong to the Endocrine System. Endocrine System is one of the 11 Systems that supports the Human Body.
  2. Systems of the Human Body
    1. Circulatory system / Cardiovascular system
    2. Digestive system and Excretory system
    3. Endocrine system – is composed of eight glands scattered all over the body. They are not located in one place. They are found in the head, neck, liver etc. Glands in the endocrine system produces hormones that controls nearly all the activities, triggers, responses, growth and reproducton inside the human body. These hormones controls regulate and coordinate body functions from sensory responses to triggers, emotions, moods, fertilization and sexual functions, sleep, from digestion, metabolism, conversation of chemical compounds to growth and development.
      1. Hypothalamus Gland – is located in the brain. It controls the endocrine system. The information found in the nervous system
      2. Pineal Gland
      3. Pituitary Gland
      4. Parathyroids Gland
      5. Adrenals Gland
      6. Pineal body Gland
      7. Ovaries Gland
      8. Testes
    4. Integumentary system / Exocrine system
    5. Immune system and lymphatic system
    6. Muscular system
    7. Nervous system
    8. Renal system and Urinary system
    9. Reproductive system
    10. Respiratory system
    11. Skeletal System
  3. Hormones – Hormones are chemical substance made by glands to function as a messenger. After a hormone is made by the gland, it is released and carried out by the bloodstream inside the blood vessel to be delivered to the different tissues of the body. The hormones carry information and instructions from once cell to another cell. These cells are found in the tissue. These tissues are formed from a combination of cells. The hormones will go into the cells within the tissue to help control how cells and organs do their job.
  4. Tissue – If one cell combines to another cell, then two cells to another cell until these connected cells form into a group of cells, this group of connected cells is called a Tissue. In other words, a tissue is composed of cells. These cells within the tissue performs different body functions. There are four main types of tissues in the human body:  connective, epithelial, muscle, and nervous tissues.

There are a few glands, hormones and organs involved in the formation of anger. These are the following:

  1. Adrenal GlandsAdrenal glands, or suprarenal glands, are the soft, small, triangular-shaped tissues sitting on top of both kidneys. These glands perform a variety of important functions of the body. When signaled by the brain, they produce hormones that help regulate the metabolism, immune system, blood pressure, response to stress, and other bodily functions. The Adrenal Glands is composed of two parts.
    • Adrenal Cortex – The Adrenal Cortex is the outer layer and the largest part of the Adrenal Glands. It is sub-divided into three zones.
      • Zona Glomerulosa – the outermost zonal layer of the Adrenal Cortex. Zona Glomerulosa secrets/releases Mineralocorticoids. Mineralocorticoids is a class of corticosteroids, steroid hormones that promotes and regulates Electrolytes (essential mineral such as sodium, calcium, and potassium) and water balances. Aldosterone is the main Mineralocorticoid, a steroid hormone produced by the zona glomerulosa of the adrenal cortex. Aldosterone is essential for sodium conservation or saving sodium supply in the kidneys, salivary glands, sweat glands, and colon.
      • Zona fasciculata – is located at the middle part of the Adrenal Cortex and is the largest zone. It constitutes 50% of the Adrenal Cortex. Zona fasciculata secrets/releases steroid hormones called Glucocorticoids which are important for carbohydrate, protein, and lipid metabolism. (Metabolism is the process of breaking down the food you eat and drink, and converting them into energy that is necessary for the body to function). There are 5 types of Steroid Hormones. Steriod
        1. progestagens, glucocorticoids, mineralocorticoids, androgens, and estrogens
