Your Own Pharmacy
You carry your own Pharmacy in your brain and body. And you don't require a physician's order to obtain the benefits of its medication, either. For example, experiencing positive emotions and feelings such as happiness, gratitude, compassion, and love can reduce the production of cortisol, the stress hormone. As cortisol levels fall, the anti-aging hormone DHEA increases. According to "The Heartmath Solution," this is because the same hormone is used in the body to manufacture the anti-aging hormone(DHEA) and the stress hormone (cortisol). DHEA is believed to have a regenerative effect on many of the body systems and may help to counteract some of the negative consequences of aging. Such a deal!
