Research in brain biochemistry contributes to a new understanding of mind and body,psychoneuroimmunology,  where the core idea is that cells in the brain are lined with many specific "receptors" which constantly share information. There exists “molecules of emotions, known as neuropeptides  associated with mood changes:endorphins (happy hormones), insulin (blood sugar control), vasopressin (blood pressure control), sex hormone, and serotonin . Immune cells, bone marrow and gut cells also have receptors. A variety of peptides act as "information substances" - and each of them affects our mind, our emotions, our immune system, our digestion and other bodily functions. These changes are strongly linked to changes in the immune system. The Phrase, “You make me sick”, take on new meaning when there is scientific evidence to support it. Emotions can suppress or enhance immune function. Depending on the thoughts and emotions, specific neuropeptides are made in the brain and nervous system, white blood cells, reproductive system, digestive system and heart. A two-way network is formed between mind and body.

Emotions - bitterness, unresolved anger, resentment, fear and worry- constantly trigger your stress response and are stored in the cell memory. Stress and depression can suppress the activity the white blood cells that are the body’s first line of defense against cancer and invading organisms. Cells in the immune system are responsive to all 90 neuropeptides, that are triggered by our thoughts and emotions. Constantly thinking of resentful, angry thoughts and feelings that grow allows the thoughts to become emotions, then  neuropeptides influence cell function. Diseases of the immune system-, cancer, allergies, arthritis, infections, ulcerative colitis, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis  result from this.
