TMHS 461: Psychosomatic Effects Of COVID-19, Lack Of Transparency, & Dangerous Outcomes
“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” -Alice Walker Over the past year, a lot has changed. Many of us have had to pivot our work situations, how we educate our children, and how we connect with our loved ones. Some folks have struggled to make ends meet and lost access to important outlets like gyms and therapists. Even worse, some people have experienced loss. Pandemic fatigue has set in, leaving many people feeling exhausted, burnt out, and pushed to their limits. And as you can imagine, living in a place of constant stress and fear can take a toll on our health—both mentally and physically. On this episode of The Model Health Show, we’re diving back into the studies on COVID-19. You’re going to learn about the psychosomatic effects of the pandemic, including how our immune system responds to our thoughts and emotions. We’re going to talk about how our current climate has politicized science and review recent studies on mask wearing. Most importantly, you’re going to learn what you can actually do to protect your health and minimize your risk of infections. I hope this episode emboldens you to take authority and responsibility over your own health. Because at the end of the day, you are the most qualified person to take care of you. In this episode you’ll discover: * What a psychosomatic condition is. * How stress and fear can actually change our biology. * What psychoneuroimmunology is. * The impact that psychological stress can have on the immune system. * How immune cell activity can improve by walking. * The link between preexisting conditions and COVID-19 deaths. * What endemic means. * The importance of optimizing our immune system so it can work as intended. * How the pandemic has affected mental health in children. * The connection between mood disorders and COVID-19 risk. * What a nocebo effect is. * How effective placebos generally are, and why it matters. * The importance of activating your lymphatic system through exercise. * How meditation can increase your natural killer cells. * The role sleep plays in the function of the immune system. * Why the pandemic has been politicized, and why that’s a problem. * How science gets oversimplified in the media. * Examples of science being suppressed. * What you need to know about observational studies. * The negative side effects of wearing a mask. * What happens to a mask’s efficacy when exposed to moisture. * The importance of taking responsibility for our own health.
