The Science Behind Mindfulness

Fear vs. Love

With every situation we face, our hypothalamus has but two perceptions of our immediate environment, one of safety and security, or one of fear and danger. When we perceive our current situation is one of danger, our thoughts trigger our brains to go into the fight or flight mechanism of the sympathetic nervous system. During this stress filled state, cortisol and adrenaline surge through our blood stream.

Biology of Belief

Placebo Effect

No one argues the Placebo Effect. The scientific and medical communities acknowledge the effects of the Placebo but stop short of incorporating its positive effects on their patient or guarding against the negative effects of the nocebo. If a possible negative outcome or side effect is discussed in the patient’s environment, they can latch on to that as a belief and contribute to its manifestation. As with everything else in our universe, whatever extreme can be experienced, the polar opposite has to be possible.
