The Mind & Body Connection - Understanding the Metaphysical Side!

The Mind & Body Connection - Understanding the Metaphysical Side!

People who have good emotional health are aware of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They have learned healthy ways to cope with the stress and problems that are a normal part of life. They feel good about themselves and have healthy relationships.

However, many things that happen in life can disrupt your emotional health and lead to strong feelings of sadness, stress, or anxiety. Good changes can be just as stressful as bad changes. These things include:

  1. Being laid off from your job
  2. Having a child leave or return home
  3. Dealing with the death of a loved one
  4. Getting divorced or married
  5. Suffering an illness or an injury
  6. Getting a job promotion
  7. Experiencing money problems
  8. Moving to a new home
  9. Having a baby

What is the mind-body link?

You may already be familiar with phrases which describe the mind-body connection in day-to-day life such as something being a “pain in the neck” - it generally symbolises 'burden over mind'.

When we talk about mind, people usually understand it as a collection of thoughts, feelings, beliefs, attitudes, memories, past experiences and personality that make up a person’s internal world.

Mind vs Brain

In colloquial terms, the words mind and brain may be used interchangeably but, the two are in fact not the same. While the brain is a physical organ, the mind can be described a virtual entity present within each cell of our body and extended to minimum 2 inches outside the body. That is why mind controls the body as a collection of thoughts, emotions, imagination and memories. When compared to a computer, the brain acts as the hardware while the mind is the software within it.

Is it all in my head?

Experiencing happiness or sadness not only affects your frame but also affects your physical health. For example, indigestion is commonly triggered by stress and anxiety. On the other hand, physical ailments also affect an individual’s mental well-being. Do you know anyone who feels happy when they are sick? Thus, the mind and body share a deep, cyclic connection. To be physically healthy is it important to be psychologically healthy and vice versa.

Emotions manifest themselves on an individual’s body in a number of ways. This ranges from changes in internal body temperature and blood sugar levels to hormonal imbalances and altered brain chemistry. Happiness and joyous emotions have the ability to boost immunity, alleviate pain and relax muscles while sadness and anxiety can increase heart beats, tighten muscles and dilate blood vessels. Over time, it can also lower a person’s immunity and make them more susceptible to bacterial and viral infections. Anxiety and depression can keep a person from eating nutritious food and exercising and hence lower his or her overall health. Poor emotional health could also encourage the use of stimulants such as alcohol and drugs that cause weight fluctuation, insomnia, tiredness, weakened gut health, sexual problems etc.

How do your thoughts and feelings affect your health?

Your brain produces substances that can improve your health. These substances include endorphins, which are natural painkillers, and gamma globulin, which strengthens your immune system.

Research shows that what your brain produces depends in part on your thoughts, feelings, and expectations. If you're sick but you have hope and a positive attitude and you believe that you'll get better, your brain is likely to produce chemicals that will boost your body's healing power.

Negative thoughts and emotions can keep your brain from producing some of the chemicals that help your body heal. But this doesn't mean you should blame yourself for getting sick or feeling down about a health problem. Some illnesses are beyond your control. But your thoughts and state of mind are resources you can use to get better.

The mind-body link and your health

Some of the body’s systems are more affected by the mind-body link more than others. You may recognise some listed below:

  1. Digestive System Changes: It is common to experience an upset stomach (e.g. nausea, diarrhoea, bloating or pain) during times of stress. There are lots of nerve connections between the brain and the gut. In fact, the gut is sometimes called the ‘Little Brain’ for this reason.
  2. Skin Conditions: People with skin conditions, including eczema or psoriasis, notice that during stressful periods their symptoms can become worse and respond less well to conventional treatments.
  3. Heart Symptoms: Changes in the way the heart works are common in stressful or exciting circumstances. For example, stress or excitement can cause the heart to beat faster and raise blood pressure. These normal changes in heart rate and blood pressure as a result of stress can be concerning for people with or without heart conditions.
  4. Fatigue: Fatigue can also be affected by how we think and feel. For example, boredom can lead to feeling fatigued and sleepy whereas an unexpected piece of good news could give you a burst of energy. Fatigue can also be present as part of mood problems such as depression and anxiety. People who experience health problems may struggle with fatigue which is a combination of physical and emotional factors.
  5. Thinking Styles: How you think - your ‘thinking style’ - can affect how you feel emotionally and physically. Some common thinking styles make it seem very likely that something bad is going to happen. This can make you feel worried, sad or upset even though the thought is not true.

Mind-Body Therapies

Below is a short list of some of the more common types of psychotherapy. Some therapy techniques have been scientifically tested on a large scale basis; while others are newer and often combined with more established psychotherapies.

  1. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  2. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  3. Psychodynamic Therapy
  4. Interpersonal Therapy (IPT)
  5. Hypnotherapy

Using the mind-body link to help you manage your health

  • Learning how to relax can help your mind and body. You can try different things until you find one that works for you. For example: Listen to relaxing music.
  • Spend five minutes focusing on the rhythm of your breath.
  • Try using prayer or meditation to relax.
  • Imagine being in a peaceful scene, such as a beach or woodland. Notice what you can see, hear, touch, taste and smell.
  • Try not to rush around during the day. Leave plenty of time for your planned activities.
  • Talk to someone when you are feeling stressed, anxious or down you might not feel like doing anything.

Thankfully, like physical ailments, emotional ailments too can be treated.

I have ocd .which is getting worse over tym. Its been 3 years m suffering frm it. I have episodes of depression too. None of therapy works. Neither medicine nor CBT. What should I do now?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Sukhpreet, OCD is a chronic disorder. It causes lot of distress in you. OCD generally causes depression and high dose of antidepressants are the treatment for OCD. i hope you have tried with highest doses of 2 different type of tablets for sufficient length, over 3 years continuously. i believe your CBT went ahead upto the level of ERP fully, according to the hierarchy of symptoms. If so, you can opt for ECT, rTMS, DBT or gamma knife surgery.

Hi I'm jawaid 25 years of age sir prescribe me some to sharpen my mind as I'm not fully concentrating on some particular thing. Thanks.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, There are few food which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1.Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2.Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice.Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3.Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4.Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient.Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

I had quit smoking, what the the steps, exercises and anything more to do for having good health?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Congratulations on your success with quitting smoking. This is incredible and you must keep it up under any circumstances. You have also stopped the damage smoking does to sperm and to your erectile capacity. You need to now bring improvement to your lungs by doing a lot of aerobic exercise while breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. Exercise regularly and eat healthily. Avoid the company of smokers always until you have passed three years of abstinence and you will find it easier to refuse. Never try it at any time although it is possible to go back to smoking, it is equally possible to stop again. But why would you want to trouble yourself again. You have succeeded so enjoy that victory over this evil habit. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

How increase my memory because some time I forget many things and I relies some time after.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Increase the intake of healthy, nutritious food, avoid having junk, fried, fatty food. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i.e. sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

Hi my problem is that i am in a love affair from last 8 year. It was pretty good for first 2 years den afterwards she got admission in MCA and got spoiled like her friends. She started speaking lies every now and then and started hiding many things. Last year I came to know that she was talking to a friend of her on regular basis that too after my instruction to not to talk to him since he was taking too much interest in her. But 1 day she forgot her phone in my car where I read that they are still in contact. On my confrontation she told me that she was only helping him due to some problem in his home. Although I couldn't find any message which anything wrong. But since then I have become very insecure because she use to take my guidance in her every decision then how come she took such a big decision without my consent and that too after my restriction to talk to him.Although she says she has never ever thought of any other person in her life. I am getting very insecure now and whenever she talks about her collegue n friends I start doubting. This insecurity is affecting me like hell and bring my morale down quite frequently. Although we love each other but we fight a lot. I am not even able to leave her as the relationship is so old and she love me a lot. But I am scared if later I came to know that she even had a fling then I wont be able to control myself. I don't know what to do as neither I am able to leave her nor accept her totally. Moreover after that incidence I am finding myself unable to trust her and thats why not able to love her or trust her completely. How can I know the truth behind this. I tried many things but dont have any proof. I beg you please help me out of this condition.

Dear , you are already 30. You have crossed your marriage age. Why don't you get married? what is stopping you? the more you delay in the marriage, the more you will get confused. That is because, the more you know that girl before marriage, the more you will not like her, and you will feel depressed. As of now, I suggest you should not further proceed with the present affair. Because you already have many doubts in your mind. True love do not carry doubts and suspicion. Love carries only love and affection. Because you are suspicious, you are actually possessive. Possession upto one extent is alright. Here you are more possessive. If you are sure, after marriage, you will be able to 100% control your suspicion and possessiveness, you may go forward with the marriage, and that too as soon as possible. Otherwise look for another alliance. Don't take my advise lightly, because married life is more trouble than love life. Take care.

You are indeed in a funny situation: the girl you love does not love you and the girl that loves you, you do not love at all. You can at least stop loving the girl who does not love you and find someone who reciprocates your affections. You cannot be in a one-sided relationship, and it is not true that every girl you love has to love you. Just like you do not like this girl who loves you, and she has to learn to accept it somehow. So be patient because the right girl will trun up eventually.

These are anxiety attacks by your over-reaction to fearful situations, especially when you have to face an interview. You are having a problem handling fear and this may be habituated from childhood from overbearing parents. Either one or both of your parents may have exercised strict controls and expectations on you and now you have become intimidated by this pressure. They may have meant well but could have in the bargain gone overboard and caused this reaction in you. You should meet with a counselor and learn how to handle this fear and master your emotions. This is not to control your feelings but to learn to express them appropriately. When we are afraid it is very important to express the feeling but also to reach out for support. You may also go for public speaking skills course or attend the ?Toastmasters Club?. Additionally, you may attend a personality development course. Visit a gym and build your body image, do aerobic exercises, Yoga and meditation, eat healthily, and sleep well. Handling emotions efficiently will go a long way to make you face your fear. You may also take some multivitamins and multi-minerals as supplements.

Hi, in general, anything that is good for your heart is great for your brain. Aerobic exercise is great for body and brain: not only does it improve brain function, but it also acts as a" first aid kit" on damaged brain cells. Exercising in the morning before going to work not only spikes brain activity and prepares you for mental stresses for the rest of the day, but also produces increases retention of new information, and better reaction to complex situations. When looking to change up your work out, look for an activity that incorporates coordination along with cardiovascular exercise, such as a dance class. If you like crunching time at the gym alone, opt for circuit work outs, which both quickly spike your heart rate, but also constantly redirect your attention. You can also do deep breathing/yoga/ meditation.

Hi, I am working as a Manager with a leading software company in Hyderabad. Mam, I have good professional life (I am managing a team of 30 people in Hyd) and reports directly to Executive board members. I am married, and my partner is working as a manager in a software firm and we are blessed with a kid of current age 5 years. The exact problem that I am facing is, unknown fears while my turn comes to present my content/ I need to speak on stage. To be very precise about my problem, I am not fearing of English vocabulary / content / the audience. I am very confident on my vocabulary, stage mannerisms, or my content and body language. But, What exactly I fear is my turn to present. I mean if I am the 5th person to present on stage, My heart beat will be increased from normal to High, when the 3rd person is presenting and it further increases to very high when the 4th person is presenting and it goes rapidly high when they are announcing / calling me on stage for my turn to present. When I go on the stage / when I actually start to speak, I can sense that my heart is beating to its maximum and I can even sense it on my shirt, My mouth gets dried, and I start getting serious shivering, and the other person who is opposite to me, can easily sense that, I am highly nervous / anxious. I am considered as a good orator from my childhood and have actively presented many papers in seminars during my engineering. I can recall that, I had this problem during engineering, but it was very minimum. But from the day 1 of my career, this problem started growing and has become giant in my head now. Kindly note that, I will have these symptoms, only if I have a situation, where I need to present in an order (Waiting for my turn to present). But, if its a regular team meeting, or unplanned presentation an I am supposed to talk, I will be the best presenter. This problem is currently hitting me to the core, I started feeling highly nervous due to which, it started affecting my personal life as well. I was once very cool, But now, I am getting easily frustrated, getting anger easily, shouting on my wife, kid and even to my parents sometimes. I visited a doctor 2 years ago and has suggested me BETACAP TR-40 MG, and prescribed to take the pill a 30 mins to 1 hour before the presentation. I tried this from 2 years and the success rate is 60%. Sometimes, I haven't got any nervousness symptoms after taking the pill. But sometimes, even if I take 2 pills also, I am getting highly nervous. Kindly help me. Thank you.

Dear Lybrate user This seems to be an anxiety and its psychological. It can be treated Psychotherapy specially CBT. This has become a habit which needs to be changed. We can also find the cause of the problem and the anxiety associated with it can be removed easily. Take deep breaths before your presentation (belly breathing). Drink some water also. Try to notice the thoughts which come in your mind when you are waiting for your turn and try to challenge them. Do relaxation exercises or meditation or yoga. Also visualize yourself not having any anxiety once or twice a day. You can contact me for more information and a free consultation. Take care. Good luck.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. There are so many reasons for a female to be lonely and less talkative. There is a basic personality trait with which people tend to be lonely names introversion. Stress, anxiety, depression, mood related problems, disappointment, irritation etc can cause a person to be lonely and less talkative. We need to talk to the person and find out what causes this person lonely and less talkative. I suggest online counseling to her. Take care.

It's natural to feel sad about the loss and is understandable. All you need to do is to be among friends and family and people who care for you. Also have a relaxing and peaceful sleep at night. It may take at least 15-20 days fir you to recover from those feelings and memories. If they still keep on disturbing you and you keep feeling sad and unable to get on with regular life, do not hesitate to consult a psychiatrist for help.

Hello, welcome to lybrate sorry to hear about the tragic incident that happened to your cousin. Such traumatic life events are a source of immense stress. Such stressful conditions can trigger the development of an abnormal personality, an underlying mental illness, which might remain hidden till a new triggering factor is encountered in life. Also such life events makes an individual more vulnerable for stressful situation in future, reduces stress coping abilities and can lead to maladaptive changes in ones behaviour. As you told that since last 5-6 month he had started behaving abnormally, with increased aggression. This might be triggered by some other incident which need to be explored. Also it can be the beginning of an underlying mental illness. Hence before going for managing these symptoms, a thorough assessment is necessary in order to understand his emotional and psychological state. This will help in understanding him better, & would help in making a better management plan for his issues. If you consider that you need detailed evaluation for your cousin, and want to seek an expert advice pertaining to his problems, you can a private session with me.

Regular intake of excess water in your diet. 5. Avoid junk food, carbohydrates. 6. Take healthy diet that enrich you with proteins, vitamins. 7. If diabetic make sure sugar level should be maintained. 8. If hypertensive, make sure bp should not reach to too high or too low along with hr. 9. Avoid stressful life. 10. Meet some physio and learn daily exercises that will keep you fit and healthy along with some modification in your lifestyle. 11. Avoid fasting - eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at fixed timings. 12. Make yourself busy by fulfilling your hobby as it will give you freshness and your mind will be diverted from normal life. 13. Take min 7 hours of sleep. 14. Avoid taking caffeine, alcohol, phenylethylamine (found in chocolate and cheese), tyramine (found in nuts and fermented meats, cheeses, and soy), and aspartame (in many artificially sweetened foods) as sometimes these all exaggerate the condition. Instead use basil leaves tea or ginger tea boiled nicely in water without milk. Do not worry about getting tia / cva. If you keep yourself relax and avoid stress you will be healthy and then no disease no tia.
