Background: Emotions are an integral part of life which affect our daily activities. These are strong feelings derived from circumstances, stress, mood, or relationship with others. Stress, according to Hans Seyle, is defined as non-specific response of the body to any demand for change. Some people use stress to refer to an overbearing or some other unpleasant situation they were subjected to. It can be classified as a type of emotion, as it can affect the decisions made by an individual. Hormones such as Dopamine, Endorphins, Serotonin and Oxytocin predominantly affect human emotions and are therefore directly related to emotions This concept also governs the fundamentals of an important group of disorders called Psychosomatic Disorders affecting a wide range of population. A better understanding of this relationship can therefore definitely be used to lead a more fulfilling life.

Aim: To assess the awareness amongst faculty of our institution on the relationship between emotions, stress and hormones and their response towards it.

Methodology: This questionnaire study is based on the modified version of the actual concepts designed by Karim Elsheikh (Founder of Inner Conqueror) who probably for the first time derived a directly proportional relationship between our emotions and the role of few hormones in governing them. The questionnaire was filled by the faculty of all the department of our institution and then the data subjected to statistical analysis.

Result and Conclusion: After analysing and interpreting the study, we can conclude that Psychosomatic disorders are untreated in majority of the cases because of unawareness of their pathophysiologies and insufficiency of expertise in clinicians to diagnose them.
