Turn Off the Risk for Disease

Our feelings affect our genes: New techniques allow researchers to measure how our attitudes affect gene expression - showing how to turn off risk factors for disease.

Remarkable new techniques show that negativity and loneliness turn on the inflammatory response – a risk factor for disease. Which, on the flip side, allows for self-empowerment via the psychology of the cells.

Social genomics steer our health 

The new branch of research, called social genomics, shows that our experiences – and how we see the world – color the molecular biology of our body and create a different us, says University of California, Los Angeles, genomics researcher Steve Cole, PhD. Simply put, our genes affect our health, and our attitude can influence our genes.

The most remarkable findings 

Several lines of research shows that adversity, including stress, poverty and loneliness, can reprogram the immune system to be ready for trouble. In the short term it’s probably a good strategy, but in the long term it can lead to health problems such as heart disease and cancer.

Lonely people have vascular changes that increase their risk for high blood pressure, and they have elevated levels of the stress hormones cortisol and epinephrine, according to John Cacioppo, PhD, who’s seeing the most remarkable findings of his career.

220 genes were turned on in the cancer cells of women with low levels of social support and high levels of depression - genes that were not active in women who had less stress.

Mind-boggling possibilities 

Jeanne Brooks-Gunn, PhD from Columbia University, is giddy with excitement. It’s kind of mind-boggling, she says. These discoveries will have policy implications. The psychology of cells gives us a dimension and understanding of mechanisms that we’ve never had before. The potential of these studies is myriad.

How Psychoenergetics Help in Healing

Swedish Crown Princess with Professor Alain Aspect, one of the awardees for the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics for ground breaking insights in quantum teleportation.

NO MORE SOFT SCIENCE: We live in a time where the intangible effects of psychology are becoming measurable. The field of Psychoenergetics can point to specific changes in matter, when our mind is determined.

You can steer physical outcomes

Psychoenergetics is the cutting edge possibility of sending intentions across a distance, and getting the desired results.
 
The quality and the power of the intention makes the difference. The quality of an intention is based on the human’s consciousness while the power of the intention is strongly dependent on the emotional desire of the intender.
 

To maximize the human’s communication ability, one needs to greatly:

  • Broaden the bandwidth of expression (give more things meaning)
  • Increase the signal power (to broadcast to a greater area) 
  • Decrease the interference (fears, uncertainties, personal ego)

Since we learned to broadcast via a new, subtle energy to humans at locations all around the earth - we have significantly alleviated various ailments.

Such as cognitive function and physical health benefits - as well as significant reduction of depression and anxiety.

William A Tiller, Ph.D. - Intention Science

Nobel Prize for distance influence 

Using groundbreaking experiments, Alain Aspect, John Clauser and Anton Zeilinger have demonstrated the potential to investigate and control particles that are in quantum entangled states. What happens to one particle in an entangled pair determines what happens to the other, even if they are seemingly too far apart to be able to affect each other. 

These findings support the fascinating discovery made by CIA agent Cleve Backster back in 1966, where he noticed that speaking harshly or lovingly to a plant made it wilt or thrive, respectively. It demonstrates the phenomenon that  every emotion, intention or idea that comes from our bodies can be transformed into energy which affects matter. 

The plants were healed by loving energy, so naturally the same goes for us humans.

Nobel Prize winning research shows that two or more physical particles can share the same state - regardless of how far apart they are.

You can improve your genes quickly

It is hard to believe – I know, but the saliva was measured, after just ONE 50-min session of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). The results showed healthier measurements of gene regulation, such as immunity, inflammation, neuronal processes in the brain, and stress regulation, and many more.
 

EFT-Tapping - an evidence-based practice combining acupressure and cognitive exposure - can influence our health in a positive way.

Marjorie E. Maharaj, LMHC

Biopsychology will help 

Biopsychology, how the mind affects the body, is a rapidly expanding field of study as it is now possible to measure the physical effects of therapeutic experiences. In this study Marjorie E. Maharaj, LMHC, compared messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) and gene expression via blood samples, before and after psychotherapy and a control condition. 

72 improvements in the genes were found, such as better immunity, inflammation reduction, improved neuronal processes in the brain and stress regulation.

 

So how does it work?

We have DNA in our cells, which contains our genetic code. Although we have over 20,000 genes, only a few are turned on in any given cell at any given time. The function of each cell is determined by which genes are turned on, when they are turned on, and how strongly they are turned on.

Depending on how our bodies are treated, both by our psyche and the environment around us, affect how the cells will function. Such as hormone levels, temperature, diet, stress, lifestyle habits, and much more.

Let Go – to be happy

Are you postponing your true happiness? Hoping that more love, money, sex, food, fun, vacations will get you there? Well, I’d like to share, from my own experience, that you don’t need to wait for any of that.

“Nothing” is needed to be deeply happy

In any moment, whenever you want, you can experience a profound sense of peace, contentment, and deep joy by simply allowing yourself to let go.

This does not mean that you need to give up on your goals – on the contrary. It only means that you will move forward in your life in a much better state. And it will make your goal reaching so much easier.

A simple way to do this is when you notice that you want more, and when you’re digging in to get it, to instead ask yourself, “Could I allow myself to relax about it?”

Allowing yourself to have even a little more feeling of backing off will open you up to a state of calm that you didn’t even know was possible.

When we are caught on the endless treadmill of wanting and striving, we miss the abundance that we already have. So, by allowing yourself to pause, even for an instant, to notice and appreciate what you already have right now, you step off the hamster wheel and can start to enjoy your life as it is meant to be enjoyed.

Worry less about cholesterol and more about gratitude and forgiveness.

Advice from Harvard's longest running Happiness Study*

Happiness is turning a lemon into lemonade 

It is social aptitude, not intellectual brilliance or parental social class, that leads to successful and happy aging.” It is the habitual use of mature coping styles – ways of “making a lemon into lemonade, appreciating what you already have and making good use of it, says George E. Vaillant, MD, who is in charge of the study which stared in 1937. In psychological and social terms, this is the most powerful predictor of successful and happy aging.

 

 

Successful aging is free of genetic factors

The genes can be improved by lifestyle choices, both mental and physical. But more affluence is not the key to a happy, healthy life. The chase and struggle can turn on you and cause real troubles. 

Being able to afford better doctors, hospitals, and healthcare is unrelated to health or longevity, says Vaillant. People who can afford expensive doctors are sicker than people who don’t go to the hospital in the first place. Having better doctors and hospitals is a bit like locking the barn after the horse is out. The trick is not going to hospitals in the first place.

EFT-tapping PLUS, including Joy Mastery, is a winning combination for comprehensive health improvements. It turns out that when one is feeling emotionally better, the body turns on it’s natural healing processes, for a 113% stronger immune system. 

113% Stronger Immune System

When the rapid transformation method, Emotional Freedom Technique, was scrutinized in 2019 in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine, it turned out that a 4-day training resulted in compelling physiological improvements, in addition to the more known psychological improvements:

  • Pain: 57%
  • Immune defense SigA: 113%*
  • Cortisol: 37%
  • Cravings: 74%
  • Anxiety: 40%
  • Depression: 35%
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder: 32%
  • Happiness increase: 31%

These improvements align with emerging discoveries within the field of social genomics, that our feelings regulate our health. 

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
*Secretory IgA (SIgA) serves as the first line of defense in protecting the immune system from toxins and pathogenic microorganisms.

EFT-tapping is a simple, powerful process that can profoundly influence gene activity, health and behavior.

Bruce H Lipton, PhD

How feelings regulate health 

Remarkable new techniques, within the field of social genomics, measure how the environment affects the genes. Findings show that feelings regulate the bodily health systems. Scientists are able to peer into cells and see what’s going on at the molecular level, in a way that has never been done before.

These findings have lead to some significant insights, that adversity, including stress, poverty, early childhood adversity and other negative feelings, create feelings that turn on the inflammatory response in the body – which is a clear risk factor for disease, according to Steve Cole, PhD. In the long term, it can lead to serious health problems, such as:

  • Increased risk of heart disease
  • High blood pressure 
  • Cancer
  • Neurodegeneration
  • Reduced immune defense
  • Increased inflammation

Research is showing that people who feel socially isolated get sick more, and die sooner, than people who feel socially connected and satisfied with their life.

You can make a difference

Our experiences, and how we see the world, color the molecular biology of our body, says University of California, genomics researcher, Steve Cole, PhD. 

Our genetic fluidity creates a myriad of possibilities, and what kind of results we get depends on how we react to our environment.
