Happy-immune-cellsMind-body practices, like mindfulness self hypnosis and meditation have been shown to cultivate positive and happy immune cells. At Seattle Hypnosis with Roger Moore you can learn self hypnosis and make you and your cells happy.

Steven Cole, a professor of medicine and psychiatry at the University of California, Los Angeles, has spent several decades investigating the connection between our emotional and biological selves. “The old thinking was that our bodies were stable biological entities, fundamentally separate from the external world,” he writes in an email. “But at the molecular level, our bodies turn out to be much more fluid and permeable to external influence than we realize.”

The Atlantic, Aditi Nerurkar February 10 2015: “There’s an intrinsic connection between our experience of life and the molecular function of our bodies,” he explains. Specifically, Cole and his team of researchers at UCLA have found that happiness may be linked to the function of immune cells.

As he explains, the immune system has two primary programs: one that fights viral infection, and one that fights bacterial infection and causes inflammation. The second function, known as the inflammatory response, has a downside: Its efforts to keep healthy immune cells circulating in the body can also cause tissue damage.

Cole has found that the balance of these two functions of the immune system may change based on life experiences. His work has shown that negative experiences like a new cancer diagnosis, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and low socioeconomic status are associated with increased activity of inflammation genes in immune cells. “Over the past 15 years, we have found that diverse social and psychological experiences that cause a sense of threat or uncertainty can evoke a similar response in our immune cells,” he says.

Listening to him explain his work is part philosophy lesson, part cellular-biology lesson, a scientific discourse on la dolce vita. “We’re now beginning to ask how positive life circumstances might potentially counteract those negative threat effects at the molecular level. What are the concrete things we can do to actively promote more favorable gene expression profiles in the immune system?” he writes.
