The Love is a miracle medicine: love protects against dementia

Relieves pain, increases creativity, improves heart health, reduces stress, protects against dementia … No effects of a miracle medicine, but one of the natural remedies more accessible and effective: love.

But it also has its adverse side effects as disappointments, infidelity, dependences or jealousy, the love it may be considered as an effective remedy, antidote and vaccine countless aches and pains, body and soul.
No prescription is required nor contraindications and benefits are largely overcome their injuries, so it is always advisable to have on hand and taste it.
Love has a direct influence on the health of our heart, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and contributes in this way to extend life expectancy, according to the Spanish Heart Foundation (FEC).


The positive emotional bonds psychological reduce cardiovascular risk factors

According to a report from the FEC, “the bonds with partner, family and friends improve blood pressure, which helps to reduce levels of anxiety, stress and depression, known as” psychosocial risk factors “cardiovascular.
A study by the Federation, World Heart Federation (WHF, for its acronym in English) ensures that people who follow a treatment to address heart disease and have a happy environment, improve two to four times their ability to recover from the disease.
On the contrary, other research at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm (Sweden) has shown that women with stressful marriages have triple the risk of heart attack than those with a good relationship with your partner.
However, being married or having a partner reduces the production of cortisol, the “stress hormone”, according to another study conducted by Dario Maestripieri, University of Chicago (USA), who believes that “marriage seems to easier to deal with stressful situations of everyday life. ”
“There is a clear link between our mood and health of our heart. To prevent cardiovascular disease, in addition to controlling stress, cholesterol levels, exercising and eating a healthy diet, we have to promote positive feelings strengthen our bond affective with our environment, “said Dr. Miguel Ángel García Fernández of the Spanish Society of Cardiology (ESC).
A team of researchers from the School of Medicine, Stanford University, California (USA), has found that feelings of passionate love can relieve mild with the same effectiveness as analgesics.


A analgesic called “WE LOVE US”


This phenomenon is possible because the intense love activates the same brain regions where they operate medicines for pain relief: the brain’s reward system, which is responsible for generating biochemical rewards to certain stimuli received by the person.
“These systems reward releases dopamine, a hormone and a neurotransmitter-time chemical messenger that nerve cell intercommunication, which influences our mood, our reward and our motivation,” says medical researcher Sean Mackey , who led the Stanford study.

“When people are in the most passionate love stage are significant changes in your mood impacting their experience of pain,” said Dr. Mackey.
People who live alone are twice the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease as they age, compared to those who are married or cohabiting, widowed or divorced while about fifty years old triples the chances of developing dementia, according to research by Swedish and Finnish scientists.
Both in the first phase of falling in love, and in the long-term stable relationships, “love has remarkable health effects”, some as surprising as “the beautification of the skin, hair and nails by increasing estrogen “he explained psychologist Anna Gil, USP Hospital San Jaime in Torrevieja (Alicante, eastern Spain).
It also prevents premature aging and increases the feeling of vitality, since melatonin is released. “So when we’re in love we are not only better, but we look better, our self-esteem grows”, said Gil.
Another of the “beneficial consequences” of falling in love is that it strengthens the immune system, “preventing us from diseases and helping to better and speedy recovery.”
According to the psychologist’s USP, it is thanks to endorphins, which increase the sense of wellbeing in our body and help us better withstand the pain, whether physical or psychological.
All these effects and behaviors that develop the lovers are equal in all parts of the world, according to Gil.
