Positive Energy in Medicine
By Malve Mohamed
There is a strong relationship between the psychological state and the health of the body. If a person is dominated by anxiety, fear and excessive tension, it may worsen the body's immunity and thus exacerbate health conditions. Therefore, the positive energy and psychological state of the patient play an active role in addressing the disease and may contribute to getting rid of it. Being positive is one of the most effective treatments in overcoming diseases, such as diabetes high blood pressure, heart diseases of all kinds, migraines, headaches, stomach and bone pain as well as cancer diseases, which all require the patient to have patience and strength during treatment.
Studies that Show the Importance of Positive Energy
Dr. Samia Al-khoury, a consultant psychiatrist at Rashid Hospital, described the relationship of the psychological factors in humans as linked and not separated or divided and this has been proven by studies and research in addition to clinical and practical experience in dealing with different medical conditions. She added that it is common knowledge in medical practice that the psychological factors is one of the basic factors that are taken into account when diagnosing and treating many diseases.
Doctors at the Dubai Health Authority confirmed that the psychological state of people with chronic or incurable disease represents about 60 percent of the treatment because the nervous system affects the immune system in the body. Higher levels of the immune system weakens the resistance to diseases, specifically cancerous diseases that penetrate the body and gives it the opportunity to grow and thrive due to the decrease in the proportion of lymphocytes responsible for providing protection for the body from infection with these tumors.
