Negative Thoughts Proved to Change Your Genes

#Emotional states and Gene Changes

Our body interprets all negative emotions as epigenetic stress signals. Researches confirm the correlations between emotional disturbances—such as schizophrenia, depression, panic, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and gene expression in the brain with compelling evidence. Patterns of gene expression in the brains of unhappy individuals are different from those of happier individuals.[1] This partly explains why unhappy depressed people have weakened immune systems more susceptible to illness.


#Brain’s Reaction to Unhappiness

Researches found that depression and elevated cortisol correlate with changes in the expression of many of the genes in the limbic system[1] of the brain, which is central to our stress response.


[1] limbic system: a complex system of nerves and networks in the brain, in charge of our instinct and mood. It controls our basic emotions, ranging from fear, pleasure to anger. Further, the limbic system drives hunger, sex, dominance.


#Chronic Depression and Immune Cell Aging

Emotions turning genes on and off. Studies have verified the fact that  chronic depression accelerates immune cell aging, which makes people more susceptible to illness indeed. In other words, mental trauma accelerates early aging. Studies found that people living with major depressive disorder are biologically older than people without depression. Again, depression leads to premature aging.

國外研究證實阿茲海默症患者「禁糖」可逆轉病情!維他命E主修復,容易緊繃的人類可多補充富含維生素B和鈣的食物。提高體溫便可提振心情和提高自癒力。提升免疫力,穴道按摩排除氣結是其一。科學已證實正面情緒可降低「身體發炎指數和血糖指數」。禍福相依,創傷之所以存在,往往不是事件本身,而是人們的負面解讀和負面標籤。拔牙與產子都是巨痛,但創傷比例偏低,是因為人們給予了事件正面的存在意義,並且相信所有人都能熬過去的意志。不記他人之惡,因為佛教基督教都一樣,老天爺(上帝)都記在本子裡了。理財時代,從照顧好自己的健康開始。想著別人的壞,為難了自己,想著別人的好,溫暖了自己!不屬於自己的只會逗留,不會久留。不自律就不太可能快樂。不自律,就很難肯定自己。做該做的事,而不是想做的事。「柔」「自律」「耐心」….To love and to repent.
