Amygdala Hijack By Covid-19

By | Stress Management | No Comments

Author – Dr Chestha (Neuro Physiotherapist)

Worrying about all the news on the new coronavirus and illness it causes? Well that makes a good sense. The outbreak of COVID-19 is stressful and fear about this disease can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions amongst children and adults. Now, these emotions are instilled in a mass of cells near the base of our brain called as AMYGDALA.

Amygdala Hijack By Covid-19

To understand that how this AMYGDALA SEIZURE is happening in the present situation, we need to know few key points about our brain :

  • Our brain consists of two parts known as cerebral hemisphere
  • Each cerebral hemisphere has a nucleus known as Amygdala
  • Amygdala nucleus controls our emotional responses such as evaluation of fear and threat etc. conveyed to us by our senses such as eyes and ears.
  • This area of the brain is like a COMMAND centre that communicates with the rest of the body activating our nervous system in an alarming situation.
  • Flight or fight response is activated within our nervous system and we notice effects such as rapid pulse and breathing, blood pressure goes up and an extra supply of oxygen is sent to brain, increasing alertness. Skin temperature goes down, digestion is slowed down and all our energy is saved for staying alive.

Now, in the current scenario we are unknowingly triggering this part of our brain by watching news and reading all the messages that is being circulated on whatsapp and other forms of social media. We are constantly in flight and fight response and hence most of usare experiencing the following symptoms :

  • Increased blood pressure
  • Increased breathing rate
  • Insomnia due to increased alertness
  • Increased pulse
  • Poor digestion

All these are continuously pressurizing various systems in our body such as respiratory , digestive, cardiovascular and nervous system and imposing these dangerous effects on our body.

Try doing these things more

  • Connect with friends and loved one through video chats, phone calls and text messages. It really helps to feel the connection and helps you to stay strong.
  • Stick to sources of authorised medical information regarding COVID-19

Try doing these things less

Please do not overdose on hype or misinformation. There is no need to stay tuned in 24/7, it can actually make your fear even worse.

How can you relax despite the fear of coronavirus?

Here are some ways by which you can relax :

  • Controlled breathing: Visualize you breathing travelling in a square. Inhale up the first side of the square slowly count one , two and three . hold your breath across the top and same way exhale out by counting one , two and three by moving to other side of the square.
  • Bhastrika: it has a lot of benefits such as helps lower stress and anxiety, improves brain oxygenation, good for lungs and improves immunity. We perform this by sitting in crossed leg position, make a fist and fold your arms placing them near your shoulder. Inhale deeply, raise your hand straight up and open your fist. Exhale slightly forcefully, bring your arms next to your shoulder and close your fists. Continue for 20 breaths and then relax your palms on your thighs. take few normal breaths and then relax.
  • Meditation: Guided meditations on YouTube like 432 chants, Hopponopo gratitude meditations, Ananda Sangha guided meditations would put you in a calm relaxed alpha zone.
  • Energization exercises by Dr Vandana (Watch following video)

  • Acupuncture/ acupressure points for stress management

Call us if you are having anxiety pangs. We are there to help.

Team PHYWORLD suggests that you take practical steps to lessen the risk of catching the new coronavirus by avoiding unnecessary travels and crowds, washing your hands often or using an alcohol based sanitizer.

 

How to keep your lungs safe from Coronavirus?

By | Physical Exercises | No Comments

The Coronavirus, officially called Sars-CoV-2, can invade the body when we breathe it in or by touching a contaminated surface and then face. It first infects the cells lining the throat, airways, and lungs, then turns them keep your lungs safe from Coronavirusinto “Coronavirus Factories” that spew out a huge number of viruses that go on to infect yet more cells. As per WHO the complete clinical picture with regard to COVID-19 is still not fully clear. Current symptoms include mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough & difficulty breathing. Also can sometimes cause lower respiratory tract illness such as Pneumonia and bronchitis.

So, In the midst of the current coronavirus pandemic would like to recommend an exercise program which will strengthen the lung capacities and improve the respiratory system. This will give us the best chance of fighting the virus considering there are no any coronavirus –specific medicines at the moment.

Exercises Recommended to Fight COVID-19

  • Aerobic Exercises
    aerobics exercisePlay a significant role in enhancing the lung capacity by making large muscle groups move at a rhythmic speed. Before infection, aerobic exercises are recommended to strength then the cardiovascular health. Once infected, during the period of mild symptoms, moderate daily aerobic exercise can improve lung ventilation. Aerobic exercises benefit the immune function as well. Following are the aerobic exercises which can be done indoors-

    1. Spot Jog/ Jog In Place – Kick your knees up to your hip and move briskly on the spot.
    2. Jumping Jacks – Jump with your arms and legs out wide. It is important to keep the core engaged during this exercise.
    3. Jump Squat – Stand with your feet shoulder length apart. Lift yourself up the ground from this position and land back to the same.
    4. High Knees – Quickly drive your knees up to the chest.
    5. Stationary Biking – Another type of aerobic exercise which improves lung capacity.
  • Deep Breathing Exercises
    Lung health is important, even more so with a pandemic that affects the respiratory tract. Along with maintaining hygiene and practicing social distancing, having healthy lungs will help us survive the pandemic better. If the lungs cannot expand fully, it leads to shallow breathing and decreased lung capacity. Therefore, it is important to keep them healthy by the following techniques-

      1. Diaphragmatic Breathing TechniqueDiaphragmatic Breathing Technique – Place one hand on the chest and other on the stomach. Take a deep breath, the hand on the stomach should rise. This means that one is breathing correctly. Now, when breathing out, one should again feel the hand on the stomach going down. Repeat this for three counts of each.
      2. Pursed Lip Breathing Technique – This technique involves breathing in through the nose and breathing out slowly through the mouth. Repeat this for three counts of each.
      3. Oriental Breathing Technique- Begins with simple inhaling and exhaling. Now inhale three times through the nose without exhaling. Once again inhale and raise the arms till shoulder level. Now open your arms as wide as one can and take them overhead (again inhaling) Finally, exhale as one brings back the arms to the starting position.
      4. Numbered Breathing Technique – Numbering / counting on the breath is an easy yet effective way to naturally improve lung function.
      5. Pushing Out Breathing Technique – A super power breathing exercise that gives the lungs an increased capacity to absorb oxygen. Take an upright posture and loosen the knees. Now bend down as you push out all the air from your lungs. Get back to the standing position, breathing in the air. Now fill the lungs with as much air as possible and hold the breath as long as one can. Next, extend your arm over the head and lower back to the starting position while exhaling. Perform this exercise 4 times daily.
  • Lung Strengthening Exercises.
    This includes strengthening the muscles that aid in breathing, which in turn, improves lung functioning.
    Lung Strengthening Exercises
  • Interval Training Circuit
    Best way to ease into lung exercises. The more a muscle is strengthened the longer one can sustain his breath when performing these exercises. The routine includes four exercises to be performed for 30 secs each, with a 30 sec break between two.
  • Postural Correction Exercises.
    Studies have shown that slumped sitting decreases lung capacity. So, it’s important to sit up straight to get the best lung capacity one can.

To conclude, three things that will help fight the COVID 19 pandemic are as follows:-
stay home stay safe

  • Stay Hydrated
  • Stay Active
  • Stay Indoors

Indications of issues with dealing with a pack are neck, shoulder or back pain, and some of the time a tingling sensation into the hands. Falls can likewise result if balance is undermined in light of the fact that the back pack is overwhelming.

Different examinations show that a load of fifteen percent of the kid’s weight can adjust act fundamentally bringing about spinal shape and putting a strain on developing tissues. Among fifteen, multi year olds with back packs in various positions, that back pack position will essentially influence back and neck pose. The creators propose from their underlying discoveries that heaps ought to be put lower on the back. At phyworld, we provide back pain treatment at affordable cost.

Various components can add to the beginning of back pain:

  • The heaviness of the pack comparative with the youngster’s tallness
  • The quality of the youngster wearing the back pack
  • The apparent load of the back pack

A writing audit uncovers that the perfect weight be constrained to under ten to fifteen percent of the kid’s weight, yet in addition critical to consider are plan components, and the youngster’s wellness.

A cushioned back, pressure ties to balance out substance, wide lashes for the shoulders, and a hip or abdomen belt are suggested. It is a test to persuade our kids that they will require a safe back pack as opposed to an in vogue one, particularly when they are centered around the more stylish ones, specific hues, and those that won’t disturb their apparel.

Kids should just pack things that they will completely require, position heavier things closer the base and closer to the body.
