Psychologists conducted a global study that identifies the relationship between negative emotions and physiological disturbances in the human body. As a result of these studies, scientists identified 5 feelings that cause the greatest harm to health: envy, jealousy, stinginess, guilt and self-pity .
The cause of many diseases is negative emotions.
The conclusions of psychologists are confirmed by scientists of the Institute of Naturopathy. They believe that negative emotions can cause shocks, vasospasms, depression, and even emotional pain. It is characteristic that negative emotions are the cause of diseases of the abdominal organs. They block internal energy, and this, in turn, leads to tension in muscles and blood vessels, the appearance of nodes and seals in the abdominal cavity.
Chinese experts have proven that our senses are directly connected to internal organs, which, like a sponge, accumulate both positive and negative emotions. And the latter cause disturbances in the nervous, lymphatic and circulatory systems, lead to heart palpitations, indigestion and respiration, changes in the liver, kidneys, pancreas, spleen, intestines.
Relief from emotional tension.
Our inherent desire to free ourselves from the depressing psyche of a bad mood, feelings of dissatisfaction, displeasure, fatigue is quite natural. Young people, for example, in search of an additional stimulator of vital activity and stress relief turn to alcohol and even drugs. But all this leads to the opposite result – weakening of the body and disease. You can also curb emotions with the help of soothing and tonic medications such as bromine, valerian, zamanichi, Chinese magnolia vine, and ginseng. To some extent, you can also regulate the emotional tone with the help of tea, coffee, cocoa, as well as psychotropic drugs. The ability to relieve emotional stress by taking pills is very tempting. But hobby and abuse of them, as a rule, cannot lead to anything good. Often, such drugs undermine a person’s mental and physical health.
Of course, the best discharge of emotions is the achievement of a goal. But this is not always and not everyone succeeds. And then enhanced muscle activity, exciting work, a good book, music, song … and, oddly enough, tears can come to the rescue.
Joy and laughter soothe the heart.
Nothing dilates blood vessels and soothes the heart like joy and laughter. Meanwhile, some people consider a frivolous person who loves to laugh. History shows that not a single gloomy person has become long-lived, since such people most often have spastic vasoconstriction.
“A man who does not understand jokes,” Karl Marx once said, “is a criminal.” Laughter relieves fatigue. With laughter, all the muscles of the body come into motion, and the blood is quickly enriched with oxygen. “Three-minute laughter replaces fifteen-minute gymnastics,” wrote Danish scientist Karl Rodal .
Psychotherapists offer to remove emotional stress and fatigue through prayer, turning to God or autogenous training (self-hypnosis and relaxation). By the way, confession is also nothing more than an irresistible need to defuse oneself.
Stress kills people.
It is believed that the most terrible enemy that kills people mercilessly is stress. In a state of stress, a person can have a gloomy, broken mood, in the heart there is a serious offense, anger, malicious envy, jealousy, even fear. In these situations, the vessels are often compressed to such an extent that the flow of blood can stop. With any negative emotions, the body releases hormones into the blood, including adrenaline, which narrows blood vessels, raises blood pressure, and activates energy processes. But the most unpleasant thing is that often this emotional poison imperiously suppresses the mind.
By the way, the energy of delayed emotions always finds a way out. But the laws of emotions are as follows: once they have accumulated, they must be discharged. Experts say that many of our diseases are the result of an “expired” discharge of accumulated negative emotions. People get sick from this strain, and then go to various extremes in search of relief.
Smile and laughter relieve tension.
A smile is used as a positive attitude. A smile and laughter relieve a person’s tension and prevent aging. If your face is unsmiling and it has become a habit, you should work out a smile on your face every morning in front of the mirror, creating a friendly expression in your facial expressions. Keep in mind that it excites centers of positive emotions. As a result, a good mood comes to you. A man with a friendly smile himself gains vivacity and cheerfulness and at the same time improves the mood of others.
It is necessary to prevent boring, displeased expression. As a rule, people with a gloomy face have a non-caring character. A cheerful smile creates an atmosphere for business communication, helps to avoid critical situations with loved ones
A positive attitude and self-hypnosis help.
But perhaps the most effective means is to use the method of relieving emotional stress, based on self-hypnosis. Self-hypnosis is useful not only for patients, but also for healthy people. It normalizes the state of the emotional sphere and, in particular, helps to overcome unrest, improve mood, create the emotional background necessary for successful achievement of the goal.
Start your day with a positive attitude. In the morning, go to the mirror and remember something pleasant that makes you smile, make a friendly face, set yourself up for good relations with your relatives and work colleagues. Hold these healing features of joy all day with autogenic training.
Another, which is equally important, is not just to avoid stress, but to follow the tactics of toning, strengthening the nervous system. It is lightness on rise, mobility, training, running, physical labor in the air
A joyful person is transformed. His heart pounding fun, eyes radiate kindness, movements become more expressive, and the flight of thought – purposefully . Such a person has a sharpened perception of the beauty of the world around him, relations with people improve, and creative activity becomes more fruitful.
In your imagination, operate only on events that give you positive emotions. People sharp, quickly excited to find psychological balance should take on the restructuring of their character. Outbreaks of irritability can be avoided if you show more attention and sensitivity to others. Kindness instead of cruelty and whims – that’s the key tse only to a good understanding in the team (family included), but also to maintain their own health.
MONoneuritis (Mononeuropathy ).
Mononeuritis is an isolated lesion of individual nerve trunks. Etiology. The basis of the disease is direct trauma, compression of the nerve trunk. Predisposing factors are the superficial location of the nerve on the bone or its passage in the tubules formed by the bone-ligamentous and muscle elements. Under such anatomical conditions, the corresponding sections of the nerve trunks are especially sensitive to chronic occupational or sports injury, compression of the limb during deep sleep, etc. (tunnel, or trap syndromes). In atherosclerosis, diabetes mellitus, periarteritis nodosa, mononeuropathies are caused by ischemia (ischemic neuropathies). Direct infection of individual nerves is very rare. In a considerable number of cases, the etiology of neuropathy is unknown. Symptoms The defeat of the main trunk of the nerve leads to the loss of all its functions. More distal foci cause only partial disturbances. The clinical picture depends on the degree of damage to nerve fibers. Only syndromes of a complete break of the main nerves of the limbs in the proximal sections, as well as the clinical course of the most common cranial mononeuropathies, are described below .
Neuritis of the ulnar nerve.
The impossibility of bending 4 and 5 fingers and its deformation as a “clawed paw”; the last two fingers are in the state of abduction, anesthesia on the ulnar surface of the hand, as well as 4 and 5 fingers. Most often, the nerve is compressed in the cubital canal at the internal condyle of the humerus.
Neuritis of the femoral nerve.
The impossibility of extension in the knee joint, prolapse of the knee reflex, anesthesia of the anterior thigh and medial surface of the lower leg.
Neuritis of the radial nerve.
Impossibility of extension in the elbow of the wrist joints (“hanging wrist”), loss of reflex with m.triceps , anesthesia of the posterior surface of the shoulder, forearm and 1 finger. Most often, the nerve is damaged on the shoulder, where it spirals around the humerus.
Neuritis of the median nerve.
The impossibility of pronation of the hand and flexion of the first 3 fingers, anesthesia of the lateral surface of the palm, 1-3 fingers and the lateral surface of 4 fingers. Most often, the nerve is damaged in the carpal tunnel).
Neuritis of the sciatic nerve.
The impossibility of flexion in the knee joint, paralysis of the foot, prolapse of the Achilles reflex, anesthesia of the lower leg (with the exception of its medial surface) and foot.
Neuritis of the tibial nerve.
Impossibility of plantar flexion of the foot and fingers, prolapse of the Achilles reflex (walking on the fingers is impossible), anesthesia of the plantar surface of the foot. The distal nerve can be compressed in the tarsal canal at the inner ankle.
Peroneal neuritis .
Neuritis of the peroneal nerve: the impossibility of dorsiflexion of the foot (the foot hangs down and inward), anesthesia of the outer surface of the lower leg and rear of the foot.
Differential diagnosis. The differential diagnosis of mononeuropathies with radicular syndromes and plexus lesions is based on a thorough analysis of the clinical picture, which is often difficult to distinguish from radiculopathies . In favor of discogenic radiculopathies , in particular, vertebral syndrome ( analgesic scoliosis, etc. ), as well as a frequent increase in protein in cerebrospinal fluid.
Treatment of Mononeuritis.
- Decongestants means
- B vitamins,
In the absence of the effect of conservative treatment, in many cases, surgical intervention for decompression and neurolysis is indicated .
POLYNEURITIS ( Polyneuropathy ).
Polyneuritis ( polyneuropathy ) is a simultaneous lesion of many peripheral nerves, manifested by symmetrical flaccid paralysis and sensitive disorders mainly in the distal parts of the extremities, with damage in some cases to the cranial nerves.
Intoxications (alcohol, gasoline, lead, arsenic, sulfonamides), parainfection and allergic complications ( pneumonia, mumps, etc.), dysmetabolic disorders ( diabetes, uremia, porphyria ), malnutrition (vitamin B1, B12 deficiency ), systemic diseases (periarteritis, SLE), hemoblastoses , malignant neoplasms. The severity of demyelination and degeneration of axons of nerve trunks varies depending on the etiology of polyneuropathy . The so-called infectious polyneuropathies are based on immunological disorders, and not a direct invasion of pathogens. Symptoms, course. The disease can occur at any age, but more often young people and middle-aged people. The development of painful symptoms is usually subacute or chronic (the exception is Guillain – Barré acute demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy ). Progressive muscle weakness, atrophy, paresthesia, pain, hyperesthesia or anesthesia, decreased or loss of reflexes. These disorders are most pronounced in the distal extremities and rarely extend to the trunk. Sensitivity (vibrational more often than others) is gradually upset. Due to paralysis of the feet, steppage (cocks gait) occurs ; in severe cases, tetraplegia may occur . Muscles and nerve trunks are painful on palpation, trophic disorders occur (dryness and cyanosis of the skin, damage to the nails). Involvement in the process of vasomotor fibers of peripheral nerves causes the development of orthostatic hypotension syndrome, sometimes pupillary disorders. The nature of polyneuropathy is established only after a comprehensive examination of patients. More often than others, diabetic polyneuropathy occurs , which for many years can manifest itself only with the loss of reflexes on the legs and a violation of deep sensitivity. The development of polyneuropathy in old age requires first of all the exclusion of malignant neoplasms or myeloma .
In differential diagnosis , polymyositis (there are no disturbances in sensitivity and loss of reflexes), poliomyelitis (purely motor impairments) and dorsal dryness (lack of atrophy, the presence of pupillary anomalies) should be kept in mind . It is also necessary to take into account the subclinical course of polyneuropathy , when the disease for a long time manifests itself as a lesion of only one or two nerves, and only a thorough clinical examination and determination of the speed of conduction along the nerves of the limbs allow us to establish the polyneuropathic nature of the process. In many cases of polyneuropathy, the level of protein in the cerebrospinal fluid is moderately elevated, which indicates the involvement of not only peripheral nerves, but also roots ( polyradiculoneuropathy ). Treatment of Polyneuritis.
With alcoholic polyneuropathy, parenteral administration of thiamine (vitamin B1) up to 1000 mg / day (20 ampoules of 5% solution), In case of metal poisoning – chelates ( EDTA , etc.),In porphyria , adenyl .
Apply analgesics, massage, physiotherapy exercises, physiotherapy.
The use of plasmapheresis usually has a quick positive effect.
In the chronic and residual stages, sanatorium treatment is indicated .
Forecast. With the timely detection of the exogenous cause of the disease, a complete recovery is possible. More often it is possible to achieve stabilization of the process while maintaining one or another residual symptomatology.
