|Emotions are chemical reactions in the brain that effect the rest of body. Strong Emotions have the ability to effect the body in the form of disease and injury. Emotions do communicate knowledge about us and each one has a message that needs to be felt, understood and released. The development of the brain is adversely or benefited from how the emotional, physical and attachment needs are met or not met when we are children and infants. There are numerous reports of children in orphanages dying in from lack of affection even though they have food, clothes and shelter. Basically their heart stopped pumping. And our brain can almost always grow new connections; new learnings though openness to learning, determination and kindness of others and sometimes with medications. Research from
the Mayo Clinic shows that having heart disease can increase your risk of cognitive impairment. Also it has recently been discovered that exercise is essential for brain health.
Rosebud Roberts led the study in Rochester, Minnesota. “They have problems with judgment. They have problems with making decisions. They may have problems with language. Or they may have problems with what we call visual/spacial abilities.” So we have to maintain a wide variety of movement practice to maintain our brain and heart.
