Wise Up Wednesday Brain Byte: The Bodily Effects of Your Thoughts

Mind over Matter: the saying is true, proven again and again by science.

Negative thinking in response to our environment, co-workers, spouses/children, circumstances – you name it – has a negative effect on our body.  Our immune system is compromised.  Our body’s ability to fight off infection of many forms, including cancer, is at risk.

Neuroscientist Dr. Caroline Leaf shares these important facts:

When you think toxic thoughts your immune system can turn on you and harm your heart because you increase plaque formation in the arteries of your heart, making a heart attack more likely.

Research shows that fear triggers over 1,400 known physical and chemical responses and activates more than 30 different hormones and neurotransmitters.

For more information on the effects of toxic thinking and how to reverse this process for a healthy mind/brain connection read Dr. Leaf’s book, Who Switched off My Brain?

Next Wednesday I will discuss some positive thought strategies here!  In the meantime, think POSITIVE, as much as possible.
