Mind and Body Connection

There is much more on the idea of the connection mind-body than you think, and not all are crazy new age. The mind-body connection is based on the belief that their way of thinking affects how you feel. Your body reacts to his thoughts, feelings and actions. How our body speaks to us have all felt that our body tells us that something is wrong when we have much stress or anxiety, or when they are upset. Feel so can increase your blood pressure or you can even develop a stomach ulcer, especially after a traumatic experience such as a death in the family.

You can have a variety of physical pain and discomfort symptoms, a decrease in your appetite, digestive problems, lack of energy, dry mouth, headaches, increased blood pressure, difficulty sleeping, dizziness or palpitations. During moments of emotional stress and problems, your health also suffers and has an increased risk of developing a disease. When you are under stress, it is likely to do everything what you must to keep your body healthy. Surely not enough exercise or do not eat well during these times. How can keep it healthy to have a healthy mind and body connection? Get plenty of exercise along with yoga or meditation is a good idea. When you are feeling very stressed, you should take a deep breath and focus on the interior. You can also use positive affirmations to convert their negative thoughts into positive and healthy, and thus a good mind-body connection.

The positive affirmations should start with Yo soy, I have or I choose, and focus on the things that we want to make it happen. You can say: I am full of energy or I feel very relaxed and I am sure to be able to do everything. Maybe you feel weird doing this at first, but you will get used to it. How much more so, you will see further improvements in their physical and mental health. If it focuses on the positive side, your connection body/mind keep you in a good place mentally and physical.

They had announced, but Bush has vetoed the law adopted by the U.S. Congress, banning simulated asphyxiation (throw water on the head of a detainee to cause a sensation of drowning) and other hard interrogation on suspicion of terrorism, is very bad news. The simulated asphyxiation is considered by Rigth Human Watch, Amnesty International and other human rights organizations as torture without palliatives. A torture used by the CIA. President Bush advisers recommended veto the law since it began to be discussed at the Congress, because they considered it incompatible with obtaining information in the fight against terrorism. Bush, which is not characterized by their intellectual depth, has had the nerve to say that the practice of this torture has helped to save lives. And he dared to affirm that the simulated choking is not a torture.

President Bush’s veto will be one of the most shameful acts of his presidency, said Senator Edward Kennedy, and it that the use of torture is not only illegal but that its results are unreliable and harms legitimate efforts to get information, because it induces the person questioned tell what the torturer wants to hear. The trial of Senator Kennedy match of a researcher in the study of its history, Darius Rejali, Professor at the Faculty of Reeds (Portland), who just publish Torture & Democracy at Princeton University Press, where diving in the recent history of torture and torture. Rejali stated that if you search a false confession or that the victim is submissive, torture is useful, but if you search for the truth, torture is the most sloppy method that exists. Darius Rejali has dismantled a myth of the use of torture: victims speak. To demonstrate its falsity provides an enlightening historical fact, fruit of his rigorous research: between 1500 and 1750, French legally tortured 785 people, but only spoke 23.

Those parents who are trying to upokoit your child a spoon of wine or beer, alcohol is not perceived adequately. After all, people familiar with the culture of alcohol and its effects on the body, especially dangerous in the first years of life, never resort to using this dubious “sleeping pills and sedatives.” Even in Russia, during the harvest season, the women often gave the children a decoction of poppy seeds, so they do not distract them from working in the field. But the most popular sleeping with time immemorial, is alcohol. It is surprising that in today’s abundance of information about the dangers of alcohol on the body, many parents continue to use a dangerous sedative. The first years of life – the most important in child development. At this age there is an intensive growth of brain cells, clearly demonstrates that doubling the mass of the brain in the first year of life. Alcohol also hinders the development of new cells and exerts disastrous effect on the already existing ones.

Because alcohol has the ability to easily penetrate into cells, disrupting their internal metabolism and energy. Naturally, the alcohol in this age causes irreparable central nervous system defects and, until the mental retardation. The earliest disastrous result of alcohol – is the appearance of a boomerang effect, which is achieved using alcohol – a baby gets serious sleep problems. In addition, the child becomes restless, there is abnormal development of the psyche and emerge seizures. The systematic “deep sleep” of the child with alcohol, in organism does not form a natural protective barrier against alcohol.

In normally developing child forth a number of protective properties of the body. For example, to protect the brain nature has provided protective cells in the blood vessels, which are selectively passed into the brain substance. Or, you may receive a violation of the liver, where its filter function is impaired. As a result, in the future of the child who grew up during the reception Alcohol will not have all the protective reaction to intoxication of the organism, such as nausea – alcohol assigns a natural barrier. What a great extent contributes to the rapid development of addiction for a person and severe treatment of alcohol dependence. But the main thing when considering the topic, the question remains – “What is the attitude to alcohol in a family is considered acceptable, such methods calm the baby?”. After all, the natural reaction at constant crying or poor sleep baby in a normal family, a trip to the pediatrician or child psychologist. And if the parents are trying so solve the problem of abnormal development of the child, then the family alcohol adequately perceived. After all, parents are familiar with the culture of alcohol and its effects will never use this dubious “sleeping pills” in which a child goes to sleep healthy and wake up already sick.
