The touch of another human can have significant health benefits
starting from when we are born
and continuing until we draw our last breath
Here are just 3 benefits:
THREE BENEFITS OF HUMAN TOUCH
It goes without saying that we're living in stressful times!
When we're stressed, the body naturally increases production of a stress hormone called cortisol. Stress also tends to make us crave junky fats and sugar which causes digestive issues and reduces our immunity. All these things - increased production of cortisol, reduced digestion and immunity - create a vicious cycle that actually increases our stress level.
Research shows that human touch lowers cortisol levels which, in turn, reduces the tendency to crave junky fats and sweets. We feel less stressed and are able to relax more.
Human touch increases levels of serotonin and dopamine in the body. Both are neurotransmitters or chemical messengers that help to regulate many body functions.
They help us get a more restful night's sleep and strengthen our memory function.
They also help to balance our metabolism and emotional well-being. In other words, they make us feel happier, reduce feelings of hopelessness and see the world in a more positive light.
Better Physical Health
From birth until death, human touch makes us healthier!
Premature babies who were given human touch therapy gained more weight than those who only received standard medical care.
Human touch helps to strengthen immunity by actually increasing the body's natural "killer cells" that protect the body from viruses and bacteria.
