“Emotional tears have special health benefits,” writes Judith Orloff MD in the Huffington Post.
“A study by biochemist and ‘tear expert’ Dr. William Frey discovered that reflex tears are 98 percent water, whereas emotional tears also contain stress hormones which get excreted from the body through crying.

After studying the composition of tears, Dr. Frey found that emotional tears shed these hormones and other toxins which accumulate during stress. Additional studies also suggest that crying stimulates the production of endorphins, our body’s natural pain killer and ‘feel-good” hormones.'”
