Bad MemoriesAugust 18, 2011 No Comments
The researchers of University of Montreal suggest that it is possible to get rid of painful or bad memories because they can only put your body into the negative energies all the time. There are some possibilities in which the manipulation of hormone levels can be done. It will lead towards the less recall of bad memories and they will not present forever.
The human nature is very complex due to the lack of ability of forgetting unwanted things. These things turned into the worst memories throughout your life and they are recalled just in a fraction of second. Your memories keep alive whenever bad happens in future. In medical terms, Cortisol (a steroid gland which is released in stress and also called as glucocorticoid) are the ones who helps in making new memories and play a very important part in the retrieval of memories. So the researches have come with a point that by lowering the level of cortisol, it is possible to control the bad memory recall.
A research had been conducted regarding control of bad memory recall in which 33 male adults were included. They were given the 750 mg and 1500 mg of metyrapone (which helps in reducing the memory recall) by dividing them in to two groups. The results were quite surprising because the group which took the 1500 mg metyrapone showed better results. The less recall of negative memories had been found and it caused the neural change which leads them towards a possibility of forgetting the bad memories forever. The decrease of recall may erase them from the brain.
According to the history of Psychology or Clinical Psychology, the science supports the psychological factors of mental disorders as compared to the biological. So the psychologists proved that mental health can be better treated with cognitive models rather than biochemical models. But the researchers of this study are hoping that if the pharmacological therapy can be combined with the psychotherapy then it will definitely give remarkable results by reducing the bad memories recall or sufferings due to negative energies.
Here the need is to diversify the research by applying the metyrapone among the larger population because women are more prone towards anxiety disorders and depression. The reason is that gender plays a very important role in any study because things vary in different genders.
We love to live our memories because it gives us the pleasure of reliving it by remembering the happy times. A sudden incident changes our expectations linked to our happy moments. Later on conversion in to bad memories happen which is not good for our health as it destroys our soul.
