Fear lowers the immune system – Podcast
Fear and the impacts it has
Fear weakens our immune system and can cause Cardiovascular damage, Gastrointestinal problems such as ulcers and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and decreased fertility. It can lead to accelerated ageing and even premature death When we feel fear our Hypothalamus gland releases a hormone into the Sympathetic Nervous System and triggers the fight or flight.
The hormones travel down the spine into every nerve duct that attaches to the organs in our body.
- This activates the pupil to dilate. Blurred vision. Not thinking right
- Stop salvia. Mouth becomes dry
- Dilates the Bronch. Breathing becomes faster
- Accelerates the Heart Rate. It speeds up and thumps on your chest
- Pulse rate increase
- Blood pumps around the body faster so does the fat and sugar
- Stimulates glucose release creating excess insulin sugar levels become
- Increase sweating in the body
- Inhibits the stomach pancreas and intestines. Decrease organ function
- Inhibits urination – Stops urine passing through the organs
- Can overstimulate the sexual organs as the blood is pumping faster
The Parasympathetic Nervous System is active all the time regulating the vital body functions and we are unconscious, calming our body and organs after we eat, sexual activities, urination and passing waste out of our body.
Its known as the Rest and Digest Rest and Development.
We feel balanced in our mood, relaxed and in control of our thoughts. Making the right decisions.
The hormone releases the hormone (acetylcholine) to slow the heart rate.
- It stops the pupils dilating
- Salva and tear are stimulated prevents dry mouth
- Tightens the Bronch to slower pace of breather
- Slow the Heart Rate down rebalances
- Rebalances blood levels metabolism and glucose an insulin
- Stimulates the stomach pancreas and intestines when they have been suppressed to work at optimum function
- Stimulates urination to prevent suppression of function
- Promotes genitals – when in aroused state
When we are feeling fear for longer periods of time. The Parasympathetic Nervous System struggles to remain active.
When our body stays in the Fight and Flight the Sympathetic Nervous system is active for long periods, it can impair our long-term memories and cause damage to certain parts of the brain, such as the hippocampus. Restrict our organs to function correctly.
Long term fear manifests in PTSD Trauma (posttraumatic stress disorder.)
Trauma takes a long time to recover and needs professional help. It causes Low Levels of Serotonin in the brain that can cause depression, anxiety, lack of appetite and sleep trouble, lower sexual desire. Serotonin regulates our mood and social behaviour, lack of social interaction. Feeling isolated lowers, the serotonin levels.
Our bodies become dis-eased – unease with our bodies – our organs not functioning properly, leading to disease.
