Just the two of us: Holding hands can ease pain, sync brainwaves

https://www.colorado.edu/today/2018/02/28/just-two-us-holding-hands-can-ease-pain-sync-brainwaves

Key takeaways

  • Holding the hand of a loved one in pain can synchronize breathing, heart rate and brain wave patterns.
  • The more empathy a comforting partner feels for a partner in pain, the more their brainwaves fall into sync.
  • Increased brain synchronization is associated with less pain.

The study is the latest in a growing body of research exploring a phenomenon known as “interpersonal synchronization,” in which people physiologically mirror the people they are with. It is the first to look at brain wave synchronization in the context of pain, and offers new insight into the role brain-to-brain coupling may play in touch-induced analgesia, or healing touch.

Goldstein came up with the experiment after, during the delivery of his daughter, he discovered that when he held his wife’s hand, it eased her pain.

“I wanted to test it out in the lab: Can one really decrease pain with touch, and if so, how?”

He and his colleagues at University of Haifa recruited 22 heterosexual couples, age 23 to 32 who had been together for at least one year and put them through several two-minute scenarios as electroencephalography (EEG) caps measured their brainwave activity. The scenarios included sitting together not touching; sitting together holding hands; and sitting in separate rooms. Then they repeated the scenarios as the woman was subjected to mild heat pain on her arm.

Why humans are sicker than they were before industrial civilization?
 
In my limited understanding, I consider microbes as physical manifestation of प्राणमयकोश of Bhu (soil). Like our physical body is (full of integrated body cells and 10 times more microbes). Pattern of microbes change based on प्राणमयकोश constitution (and interaction with each other), of the soil. (Like our Gut).

When all 49 मरुतs are in your favor, no one can stop you. Hanuman is one vibrant example about being unbeatable.
 
Life is effortless when all 49 Maruts and their combinations are in your favor! Or in other words, you have control over arranging and managing favorable Marut(s) as per your age, season, varna and terrain. Same is true for plants.
 
We may grow Olive in Rajasthan. It will give good results for few years but then, you will start seeing sicknesses. Mark my words. Reason is : Mismanagement of Maruts! Forcing Maruts to act against their nature! Think about it. ( Same is true for farmers growing Sandalwood in Gujarat or MP for getting rich in 15 years! 😀 )

Prana Controls Emotions : Rhythm of breathing affects memory and fear

0

Breathing

If you suggest someone Surya Namaskar or Pranayam, you are deemed as regressive, religious fanatic and what not! 😀

You believe it or not, life exists due to Prana(प्राण). And controlling प्राण is called प्राण विद्या / प्राणायाम.

प्राण विद्या / प्राणायाम is not complete without worshiping the Sun, Ganesha and Hanuman! As they are different forms/Sources of the प्राण!

Read this research. It says, your breathing affects memory!

Let me add, it does not only affect memory but intelligence! Bodily intelligence, cellular intelligence! Ganesha is a Kavi (Not the one we see around who generated poems in bulk). Kavi is intelligence personified! Prana decides intelligence!

When we talk about cellular intelligence, it is immunity! Innate response from body against non-self elements.

There are entire science developed behind right nostril breathing and left nostril breathing. When and how! How much! Deep breathing! Shallow breathing!

Even if you are athiest (Nastika), you cannot escape from control of Prana. If there is not Prana, it is death!

Rhythm of breathing affects memory and fear

https://news.northwestern.edu/stories/2016/12/rhythm-of-breathing-affects-memory-and-fear/

CHICAGO — Northwestern Medicine scientists have discovered for the first time that the rhythm of breathing creates electrical activity in the human brain that enhances emotional judgments and memory recall.

These effects on behavior depend critically on whether you inhale or exhale and whether you breathe through the nose or mouth.

In the study, individuals were able to identify a fearful face more quickly if they encountered the face when breathing in compared to breathing out. Individuals also were more likely to remember an object if they encountered it on the inhaled breath than the exhaled one. The effect disappeared if breathing was through the mouth.

“One of the major findings in this study is that there is a dramatic difference in brain activity in the amygdala and hippocampus during inhalation compared with exhalation,” said lead author Christina Zelano, assistant professor of neurology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. “When you breathe in, we discovered you are stimulating neurons in the olfactory cortex, amygdala and hippocampus, all across the limbic system.”

The study was published Dec. 6 in the Journal of Neuroscience.

The senior author is Jay Gottfried, professor of neurology at Feinberg.

Northwestern scientists first discovered these differences in brain activity while studying seven patients with epilepsy who were scheduled for brain surgery. A week prior to surgery, a surgeon implanted electrodes into the patients’ brains in order to identify the origin of their seizures. This allowed scientists to acquire electro-physiological data directly from their brains. The recorded electrical signals showed brain activity fluctuated with breathing. The activity occurs in brain areas where emotions, memory and smells are processed.

Nasal Respiration Entrains Human Limbic Oscillations and Modulates Cognitive Function

http://www.jneurosci.org/content/36/49/12448

The need to breathe links the mammalian olfactory system inextricably to the respiratory rhythms that draw air through the nose. In rodents and other small animals, slow oscillations of local field potential activity are driven at the rate of breathing (∼2–12 Hz) in olfactory bulb and cortex, and faster oscillatory bursts are coupled to specific phases of the respiratory cycle. These dynamic rhythms are thought to regulate cortical excitability and coordinate network interactions, helping to shape olfactory coding, memory, and behavior. However, while respiratory oscillations are a ubiquitous hallmark of olfactory system function in animals, direct evidence for such patterns is lacking in humans. In this study, we acquired intracranial EEG data from rare patients (Ps) with medically refractory epilepsy, enabling us to test the hypothesis that cortical oscillatory activity would be entrained to the human respiratory cycle, albeit at the much slower rhythm of ∼0.16–0.33 Hz. Our results reveal that natural breathing synchronizes electrical activity in human piriform (olfactory) cortex, as well as in limbic-related brain areas, including amygdala and hippocampus. Notably, oscillatory power peaked during inspiration and dissipated when breathing was diverted from nose to mouth. Parallel behavioral experiments showed that breathing phase enhances fear discrimination and memory retrieval. Our findings provide a unique framework for understanding the pivotal role of nasal breathing in coordinating neuronal oscillations to support stimulus processing and behavior.

SIGNIFICANCE STATEMENT Animal studies have long shown that olfactory oscillatory activity emerges in line with the natural rhythm of breathing, even in the absence of an odor stimulus. Whether the breathing cycle induces cortical oscillations in the human brain is poorly understood. In this study, we collected intracranial EEG data from rare patients with medically intractable epilepsy, and found evidence for respiratory entrainment of local field potential activity in human piriform cortex, amygdala, and hippocampus. These effects diminished when breathing was diverted to the mouth, highlighting the importance of nasal airflow for generating respiratory oscillations. Finally, behavioral data in healthy subjects suggest that breathing phase systematically influences cognitive tasks related to amygdala and hippocampal functions.

Why wound healing slows down with aging?

0

Older bodies need longer to mend. This reality of aging has been documented since World War I, with the observation that wounds heal slower in older soldiers.

It is because with aging, we consume our प्राण rapidly in activities like copulation, daily chores stress of family life and mindless sleeping and eating habits.

प्राण is our immunity. With aging, disruptions to communication between skin cells and their immune cells slow down this step of wound healing.

This is the reason प्राणवर्धक घी & honey is necessity in old age. Oil massage too.

Old age does not starts at 60. Body starts degradation at 21. 🙂 We realize it much later in 30s when all complications start.

Impaired Epidermal to Dendritic T Cell Signaling Slows Wound Repair in Aged Skin.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27863246

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5364946/

“Within days of an injury, skin cells migrate in and close the wound, a process that requires coordination with nearby immune cells. With aging, disruptions to communication between skin cells and their immune cells slow down this step. Discovery suggests new approaches to developing treatments that could speed healing among older people.

Whenever a wound occurs, the body needs to repair it quickly to restore its protective skin barrier. Wound healing is one of the most complex processes to occur in the human body. Numerous types of cells, molecular pathways, and signaling systems go to work over timescales that vary from seconds to months. Changes related to aging have been observed in every step of this process. Both skin cells and immune cells contribute to this elaborate process, which begins with the formation of a scab. New skin cells known as keratinocytes later travel in as a sheet to fill in the wound under the scab.

You are as Young as your Prana (GUT) is

1
Microbes
You are as young as your ability to protect depleting Prana is.
 
Prana depletes when you have no control of certain habits.
 
1) Eating 2) Exercise 3) Sex
On top of it, there are no regime to refill the prana like Pranayama. Environment is polluted and low at prana.
In Mahabharata war, many warriors including Shri Krishna, Shri Arjuna, were above 70s. They were fighting and leading young generation of Abhimanyu! Fighting together! Age does not matter! Aging is state of Prana. If Prana is powerful, you can remain forever young.
In reality, bacteria is nothing but manifestation of प्राण. प्राण consolidation for your “i”-ness is based on state of your mind. Hence, it is all mental!

So when the subtle bodily प्राणमय कोष is full of compatible and stable प्राण , there is no infection. When it is disturbed, due to environmental stress, or your own mental stress or your physical stress (lack of good food, air and water), or all of them – we see so called bacteria-led infections.

This is the reason, when you feel low at प्राण, preserve it. Fasting helps here. Boiling water helps. हवाफेर = changing place for temporarily helps. Pranayam helps. Walking helps. Surya Namaskar helps. Sandhya helps. Homa helps.

First and foremost thing is to understand body beyond physical body. We have mind. We have energy footprints. We have प्राणमय शरीर. All of them can be afflicted by disease. Keeping all of them healthy is our responsibility. Mere food won’t help. Radical change in habits needed.

Strengthen your prana whose manifestation is microbes and body cells. Spend good amount of time in nature. Esp. during sunrise and sunset. Do Surynamaskar. Eat food that is loved by beneficial bacteria in your GUT. Reduce outside food. Cook for self and family. Reduce stress. Laugh a lot! Regularize routine. Same time for meal and sleep at least. Include desi gay milk, ghee in diet. Include food grown using desi gay dung and urine. Avoid polished food (sugar, salt, rice)

Here is the interesting paper that confirms that you are as young as your Prana is!

‘Ridiculously healthy’ elderly have the same gut microbiome as healthy 30 year-olds

mediarelations.uwo.ca/2017/10/11/ridiculously-healthy-elderly-gut-microbiome-healthy-30-year-olds/

“The main conclusion is that if you are ridiculously healthy and 90 years old, your gut microbiota is not that different from a healthy 30 year old in the same population,” said Greg Gloor, PhD, the principal investigator on the study and also a professor at Western’s Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry and Scientist at Lawson Health Research Institute. Whether this is cause or effect is unknown, but the study authors point out that it is the diversity of the gut microbiota that remained the same through their study group.

“This demonstrates that maintaining diversity of your gut as you age is a biomarker of healthy aging, just like low-cholesterol is a biomarker of a healthy circulatory system,” Gloor said. The researchers suggest that resetting an elderly microbiota to that of a 30-year-old might help promote health.

“By studying healthy people, we hope to know what we are striving for when people get sick,” said Reid.

The Gut Microbiota of Healthy Aged Chinese Is Similar to That of the Healthy Young

http://msphere.asm.org/content/2/5/e00327-17

The microbiota of the aged is variously described as being more or less diverse than that of younger cohorts, but the comparison groups used and the definitions of the aged population differ between experiments. The differences are often described by null hypothesis statistical tests, which are notoriously irreproducible when dealing with large multivariate samples. We collected and examined the gut microbiota of a cross-sectional cohort of more than 1,000 very healthy Chinese individuals who spanned ages from 3 to over 100 years. The analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequencing results used a compositional data analysis paradigm coupled with measures of effect size, where ordination, differential abundance, and correlation can be explored and analyzed in a unified and reproducible framework. Our analysis showed several surprising results compared to other cohorts. First, the overall microbiota composition of the healthy aged group was similar to that of people decades younger. Second, the major differences between groups in the gut microbiota profiles were found before age 20. Third, the gut microbiota differed little between individuals from the ages of 30 to >100. Fourth, the gut microbiota of males appeared to be more variable than that of females. Taken together, the present findings suggest that the microbiota of the healthy aged in this cross-sectional study differ little from that of the healthy young in the same population, although the minor variations that do exist depend upon the comparison cohort.

IMPORTANCE We report the large-scale use of compositional data analysis to establish a baseline microbiota composition in an extremely healthy cohort of the Chinese population. This baseline will serve for comparison for future cohorts with chronic or acute disease. In addition to the expected difference in the microbiota of children and adults, we found that the microbiota of the elderly in this population was similar in almost all respects to that of healthy people in the same population who are scores of years younger. We speculate that this similarity is a consequence of an active healthy lifestyle and diet, although cause and effect cannot be ascribed in this (or any other) cross-sectional design. One surprising result was that the gut microbiota of persons in their 20s was distinct from those of other age cohorts, and this result was replicated, suggesting that it is a reproducible finding and distinct from those of other populations.

Light to charge actions against bacteria : Light-activated nanoparticles

Light-activated nanoparticles, also known as quantum dots is a new buzz-word for medical engineering. A way to boost in effectiveness for antibiotic treatments used to combat drug-resistant superbugs such as Ecoli and Salmonella, new CU Boulder research shows.

Light-activated nanoparticles can supercharge current antibiotics

Multi-drug resistant pathogens, which evolve their defenses faster than new antibiotic treatments can be developed to treat them, cost the United States an estimated $20 billion in direct healthcare costs and an additional $35 billion in lost productivity in 2013.

Again, they are trying to solve the puzzle with right hint but wrong approach.

Ultimately, it is light that controls life on the Earth. All different combination of light waves are attributed to the Sun. Instead of this complex engineering procedures, one higher level understanding of life is useful and easy to explain mass.

For example: सूर्य नमस्कार, त्रिकाल संध्या

Anyway, take hint from research, research about roots and practice them to prevent sicknesses.

Gau mutra and Gobar are in the base of all purification methods prescribed in Ayurveda. In fact, Bangladesh or Greater Bengal used to use to reduce ground water arsenic toxicity.

Gau mutra and Gobar = अपान
अपान = महाप्राण (Universal sum total of all our Prana) ‘s feature to purge toxins for current organism. So that they can maintain immunity i.e. ability to recognize self from non-self and so that they can perform their dharma peacefully.

So when metals are purified in Gau mutra and Gobar, अपान filters out toxins from metals, toxins for parent organism i.e. Cow (and all mammalian animals). They may not be toxins as such but for parent organism class, they are difficult to digest. So called toxins.

Same concept applies to Agriculture.

Lack of गोबर & मूत्र in forest/farm = Lack of अपान प्राण in प्राणमयकोश of the local body (forest/farm) = Compromised intuitive intelligence for plant’s प्राणमयकोश for elimination process = Accumulation of toxins (आम) = Diseases and death

Ayurveda prefers no boundary of safe plant vs poisonous plant or safe animal vs venomous animal. Safe metal vs Toxic metal.

What a bold and fearless science!

Reason?

There is always a meticulous purification method employed before administering plants based drugs.

What is used for purification?

None other than Gau mutra of desi breed cow.

There is only one effective and sustainable detoxification and de-pollution method that I know: Take help of mother Gau. Be it farming or food or medicine.

Lack of Prana in Processed Food : Root cause of non communicable diseases

0

Not only maggi, all processed food lack Prana. Without Prana, food is burden for digestive track. Avoid all of them!!

FastFood

There is new obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) developed in modern Indians, under the influence of mass-communication mediums. We all are in search of more refined, more polished, better processed food sources. We want white polished rice. We want refined sugar. We want refined salt. We try refined oils of various types.

Like us, food too carry energy signature (Prana shakti/Pranic sharir) associated with it. With each process cycle to satisfy our OCD for polish, shining, whiteness, refinedness, filter , significant energy get busted in frictions with machines/hands.

Due to low at energy (Prana), food is deemed for staleness. So we add preservatives. By the time, food packets reach to market, it is almost dead. It takes monumental efforts by digestive system to digest dead food. Plus, there is no refilling of body’s prana. Accumulation of dead fat.

This is just pranic destruction. Destructions of sharir # 3,4,5 are beyond our comprehension at this moment.

Isn’t it worrisome when Govt promotes food processing industries (http://www.mofpi.nic.in/Index1.aspx)?

Go for fresh food. Unprocessed food. Unpolished food. Save yourself from OCD related to processed and packaged food.

How to refill Prana?

PranaSurya SuryaNamaskar

How to refill प्राण ? This was the question asked by friend in this post (https://www.facebook.com/marut.mitra.5/posts/406693062788941)

In my limited understanding, there are several answers to this. I will try to explain by several posts.

Answer 1 : Ultimate source of प्राण is सूर्य. Getting connected with him is primary activity to help us refill and balance प्राणमय कोश.

Spend time in nature during Sunrise and sunset.
Do सूर्यनमस्कार & जल-तर्पण every morning.
Chant his names for each round of सूर्यनमस्कार
Follow proper inhale-exhale rhythm while performing सूर्यनमस्कार .The basic breathing principle is to inhale during backward bending postures and exhale during forward bending postures. Follow picture with this post.

 

Bacteria to Treat Diabetes : प्राणमयकोष से प्रमेह तक

PranaDiabetes

Microbes

Few days back, I shared post about kids eating exclusive items like soil , chalk etc. It was about Pranic intellligence directing innocent kids.

Some infants intuitively eat soil. Some eat lime chalk. They do it due to lack of wholesomeness. They lack something. Some material nutrients and some emotional. Who drives their under-development senses and intellect and take such intelligent decisions?

प्राणमय शरीर.

As we grow, we lose our प्राण. But we hardly get engaged in प्राण refilling. प्राणायाम was not some exclusive fancy exercise that some Baba advertise and we perform in garden or 5 Star resort (call it Ashram 😉). Sometimes, we lose more than our refilling capacity so impact is never observed. Since refilling is not happening, we slowly lose our intuitive intelligence. So our Gut feeling or hunch hardly works 🙂 It gives wrong directions. Wrong decisions. Vicious cycle. Day comes when even we cannot perform simple wound healing. Doctors call it Diabetes.

Got it? It is प्राणमय शरीर that takes care अन्नमय कोश. Pay attention to it!

Refilling should be performed for each शुभ action,daily. For all time and mission critical activities, we seek help from friends and relatives and perform Yajna together so overall local environment’s प्राण refilling happen. For example, वास्तु पूजन or सत्यनारायण कथा etc.”

Today I read this. Here is the novel way to treat diabetes i.e. Use healthy bacteria.
 
Bacteria = Physical manifestation of प्राणमयकोश. Cells who could not unite for specific purpose but still are in service of our existence. They remain as bacteria, 10 times more in number compare to body cells.
 
In short, take care of प्राणमयकोश and things will again get in place for long healthy life. 🙂
 
Unnecessarily focused on sugar,insulin and some costly medicinal stuff :). (Well, white sugar is still a poison. So when you eat lot of it, प्राणमयकोश is at work with intense pressure and so it diminishes faster due to overuse of Apana Vayu (Type of Prana)… and its replacement Sugarfree? ..double poison!! ) But good sugar should not be left for some irrational science. 😉 (Y)

Treating diabetes with beneficial bacteria

Treating diabetes with beneficial bacteria

University of Minnesota researchers are on a mission to treat diabetes, and they’ve enlisted a few trillion microscopic helpers.

In place of drugs or surgery, a team of researchers is studying how to improve diabetes patients’ insulin sensitivity by introducing trillions of beneficial bacteria into their intestines. Researchers believe this unusual approach, conducted through a fecal microbiota transplant, could improve how the body regulates blood sugar, the central problem in diabetics. The project is part of MnDRIVE (Minnesota’s Discovery, Research and InnoVation Economy), a $36 million biennial investment by the state that aims to solve grand challenges. As a part of MnDRIVE’s Transdisciplinary Research Program, the project will bridge multiple fields of research and bring together experts from across the U to work on the same clinical trial.

Patients with diabetes have too much glucose in their blood, which leads to a host of serious health problems, from heart disease to obesity. Dr. Alexander Khoruts, a gastroenterologist at the U of M and lead principal investigator on the project, said the right balance of bacteria has the potential to improve the body’s energy metabolism, in part by enhancing insulin function. Insulin drives glucose from blood into cells of the body.

“If we can improve insulin sensitivity, we will correct the central metabolic problem responsible for diabetes,” Khoruts said. “Diabetes is one of the main complications of metabolic syndrome, which is also associated with obesity, high blood pressure and liver disease. If we improve insulin sensitivity, we hope some of the other problems may also get better.”

To understand the composition of microbes present before and after the transplant, Khoruts is working with Michael Sadowsky, Ph.D., director of the U’s BioTechnology Institute. As a microbial ecologist, Sadowsky studies the complex science of how microbes interact in their environment. People who are diabetic or obese tend to have a less diverse microbiome – or microbial community – in their gut. In turn, they are less able to produce important short-chain fatty acids, which may regulate many functions in the body, including appetite, glucose production, metabolic rate and the immune system. Khoruts and Sadowsky believe that a more diverse microbial gut community should be able to produce more short-chain fatty acids that will have a number of beneficial effects for the patients.
