During the time of stress, the "fight-or-flight" response is on and the self-repair mechanism is disabled. It is then when we say that the immunity of the body goes down and the body is exposed to the risk for disease. Meditation activates relaxation, when the sympathetic nervous system is turned off and the parasympathetic nervous system is turned on, and natural healing starts. ~ Annie Wilson
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Annie Wilson
Deep and regular breathing, also referred to as diaphragmatic breathing, helps to quiet the sympathetic nervous system and allows the parasympathetic nervous system - which governs our sense of hunger and satiety, the relaxation response, and many aspects of healthy organ function - to become more dominant. ~ Jocelyn K. Glei
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Jocelyn K. Glei
The leech is more developed than the flatworm, with one glial cell for every 30 neurons, and the glial cells occupying 51 percent of the nervous system space. ~ Andrew Koob
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Andrew Koob
Advertising is poison gas. It should bring tears to your eyes, unhinge your nervous system and knock you out. ~ George Lois
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by George Lois
The growth of the nervous system from beginning to end is dominated by 'a totally integrated matrix, and not a progressive integration of primarily individuated units'. The organism is not a sum of its reflexes, but on the contrary 'the mechanism of the total pattern is an essential component of the performance of the part, i.e. the reflex'. The stimulus-response scheme cannot explain even embryonic behaviour, because movements appear long before the motor neurons of the reflex arc are connected with the sensory neurons. This centrifugal mode of development means that the individual acts on its environment before it reacts to its environment. ~ Arthur Koestler
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Arthur Koestler
For example, at a recent conference on psychoneuroimmunology - a new science that studies the way the mind (psycho), the nervous system (neuro), and the immune system (immunology) interact - Candace Pert, chief of brain biochemistry at the National Institute of Mental Health, announced that immune cells have neuropeptide receptors. Neuropeptides are molecules the brain uses to communicate, the brain's telegrams, if you will. There was a time when it was believed that neuropeptides could only be found in the brain. But the existence of receptors (telegram receivers) on the cells in our immune system implies that the immune system is not separate from but is an extension of the brain. Neuropeptides have also been found in various other parts of the body, leading Pert to admit that she can no longer tell where the brain leaves off and the body begins. ~ Michael Talbot
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Michael Talbot
Marain, the Culture's quintessentially wonderful language (so the Culture will tell you), has, as any schoolkid knows, one personal pronoun to cover females, males, in-betweens, neuters, children, drones, Minds, other sentient machines, and every life-form capable of scraping together anything remotely resembling a nervous system and the rudiments of language (or a good excuse for not having either). Naturally, there are ways of specifying a person's sex in Marain, but they're not used in everyday conversation; in ~ Iain M. Banks
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Iain M. Banks
As scientists you must keep your minds open. There is no use having blind faith in Me, in Sahaja Yoga, in anything because blindness will never give you reality. But you should be open like scientists are and whatever hypothesis I am putting before you, you have to feel it on your central nervous system. ~ Nirmala Srivastava
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Nirmala Srivastava
You cannot intellectualize the Divine. You have to experience it on your central nervous system. ~ Nirmala Srivastava
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Nirmala Srivastava
Your nervous system has to become collectively conscious. ~ Nirmala Srivastava
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Nirmala Srivastava
Your nervous system cannot tell the difference between an imagined experience and a 'real' experience. ~ Maxwell Maltz
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Maxwell Maltz
My brain and body and nervous system, they see a plane ride, a long plane trip, as an opportunity to sleep with nothing coming in, nothing to do. I just go offline the minute I'm on the plane. ~ Anthony Bourdain
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Anthony Bourdain
Really, how much of one's life is made up of these private incidents; how submerged one is. You know, for example, that you will recover from a broken heart, but somehow that piece of information, that factoid, never arrives at the soul or the brain or the nervous system, yes, the nervous system, where it might do some good. But if you know you're going to be all right, why then do you suffer so? To get there. To get where you know you are going to get to anyway. How pathetic, then, to feel about having arrived. I survived, you say. Yes, but what else would you do? No one dies from love. Come, come. ~ David Gilmour
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by David Gilmour
My nervous system is enfeebled, only work in oils can sustain me. ~ Paul Cezanne
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Paul Cezanne
Over time, a noisy lifestyle and stress make you old. The stress, noise and rush that often accompany working life, family life and social life can be too much for your nervous system and brain, which also need rest and cleansing. ~ Thorbjorg Hafsteinsdottir
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Thorbjorg Hafsteinsdottir
In its evolution from a more primitive nervous system, the brain, as an organ with ten or more billion neurons and many more connections between them must have changed and grown as a result of many accidents. ~ Stanislaw Ulam
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Stanislaw Ulam
He smiles so much, I don't think he has a central nervous system. ~ Lewis Black
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Lewis Black
Your worst enemy, he reflected, was your own nervous system. ~ Anonymous
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Anonymous
( ... ) to think that worms and slugs are neurologically simple is another blunder of contemporary, scientifically uninformed philosophy. To take as an example the current "superstar" nematode worm
superstar, because it was the first multicellular organism to have its genome completely sequenced, by 1998, and is widely used as a model organism
the 1 mm long Caenorhabditis elegans, it exhibits a nervous system of 302 neurons and a sensorimotor system with very complex connectivity patterns. ~ Istvan Aranyosi
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Istvan Aranyosi
[Kinsey's studies included] stutterers, amputees, paraplegics, even those with cerebral palsy were observed. Kinsey wanted to document the full spectrum of human sexuality, but it was more than that. He believed these people might have things to teach us about the physiology of sex. And he was right. These groups alerted Kinsey--and the scientific community as a whole--to the complicated and crucial role of the central nervous system in sex and reproduction. Kinsey had noted that a stutterer in the throes of sexual abandon may temporarily lose his stutter. Similarly, the phantom limb pain some amputees feel temporarily disappears. Even the muscle spasticity of cerebral palsy may be briefly quieted. The body's limiting factors seem to get shut off. The organism is driven toward nature's singular goal--conception, the passing on of one's genes--and anything that stands in the way is pushed into the background. ~ Mary Roach
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Mary Roach
All information will come in by super-realistic television and other electronic devices as yet in the planning stage or barely imagined. In one way this will enable the individual to extend himself anywhere without moving his body - even to distant regions of space. But this will be a new kind of individual - an individual with a colossal external nervous system reaching out and out into infinity. And this electronic nervous system will be so interconnected that all individuals plugged in will tend to share the same thoughts, the same feelings, and the same experiences. There may be specialized types, just as there are specialized cells and organs in our bodies. For the tendency will be for all individuals to coalesce into a single bio-electronic body. ~ Alan W. Watts
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Alan W. Watts
I am only about half alive a large part of my strength is consumed in sitting up or walking. My nervous system is a shattered wreck, and I am absolutely bored & listless save when I come upon something which peculiarly interests me. However so many things do interest me, & interest me intensely, in science, history, philosophy, & literature; that I have never actually desired to die, or entertained any suicidal designs, as might be expected of one with so little kinship to the ordinary features of life. ~ H.P. Lovecraft
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
There is no fixed physical reality, no single perception of the world, just numerous ways of interpreting world views as dictated by one's nervous system and the specific environment of our planetary existence. ~ Deepak Chopra
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Deepak Chopra
Kindness. The only possible method when dealing with a living creature. You'll get nowhere with an animal if you use terror, no matter what its level of development may be. That I have maintained, do maintain and always will maintain. People who think you can use terror are quite wrong. No, no, terror is useless, whatever its colour – white, red or even brown! Terror completely paralyses the nervous system. ~ Mikhail Bulgakov
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Mikhail Bulgakov
I know very well that many scientists consider dowsing as they do astrology, as a type of ancient superstition. According to my conviction this is, unjustified. The dowsing rod is a simple instrument which shows the uncanny reaction of the human nervous system to certain factors which are unknown to us at this time. ~ Albert Einstein
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Albert Einstein
I was worried that my exuberant drug use had damaged my brain and my nervous system and maybe even my soul in some irreparable and perhaps not readily apparent way. ~ Donna Tartt
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Donna Tartt
Laughter puts your brain, your central nervous system and your whole being into a state of free play. ~ Max Eastman
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Max Eastman
It was in San Diego and I was onstage and couldn't remember how to play the guitar properly. I was in terrible pain and my nervous system was just going wild, like somebody had just run a car over me. ~ Andy Partridge
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Andy Partridge
Of course, the drug does not produce the transcendent experience. It merely acts as a chemical key - it opens the mind, frees the nervous system of its ordinary patterns and structures. ~ Timothy Leary
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Timothy Leary
Meditation makes the entire nervous system go into a field of coherence. ~ Deepak Chopra
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Deepak Chopra
Freedom is when you really get your own powers which are within you. ~ Nirmala Srivastava
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Nirmala Srivastava
A recent invention, vocal language may date back only ca. 200,000 years. As human primates, we have not fully come to grips with the prolonged, face-to-face closeness required for speech. Speaking to a stranger, e.g., stresses our autonomic nervous system's sympathetic (i.e., fight-or-flight) division, which a. speeds our heartbeat, b. dilates our pupils, and c. cools and moistens our hands. The limbic brain's hypothalamus instructs the pituitary gland to release hormones into the circulatory system, arousing our blood, sweat, and fears. ~ David B. Givens
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by David B. Givens
In a room the size of a ballroom the Pattern was laid. The floor was black and looked smooth as glass. And on the floor was the Pattern.
It shimmered like the cold fire that it was, quivered, made the whole
room seem somehow unsubstantial. It was an elaborate tracery of bright power, composed mainly of curves, though there were a few straight lines near its middle. It reminded me of a fantastically intricate, life-scale version of one of those maze things you do with a pencil (or ballpoint, as the case may be), to get you into or out of something. Like, I could almost see the
words "Start Here," somewhere way to the back. It was perhaps a hundred
yards across at its narrow middle, and maybe a hundred and fifty long.
It made bells ring within my head, and then came the throbbing. My mind recoiled from the touch of it. But if I were a prince of Amber, then somewhere within my blood, my nervous system, my genes, this pattern was recorded somehow, so that I would respond properly, so that I could walk the
bloody thing. ~ Roger Zelazny
Parasympathetic Nervous System quotes by Roger Zelazny
Sipski defines orgasm as a reflex of the autonomic nervous system that can be either facilitated or inhibited by cerebral input (thoughts and feelings). ~ Mary Roach
