We all brau-chen close, love. Security, friendship and contacts, especially in the vicinity of residential. “People forcibly” to settle, as always more common today, is unreasonable in my view, especially in seniors. The lack of love sick makes the famous US heart specialists Dean Ornish, one of the great pioneers of holistic heart research, gained his international reputation for an interesting reason: he had the courage to say that lack of love is the greatest pathogenic factor for body and soul as one of the first doctors of the school designed specifically for the human heart. Love and human proximity the medical factors are number one for heart disease also according to scientific knowledge.

Not only the physical heart disease have in our culture reached an epidemic scale, so Ornish continue, but also the diseases that I refer to as emotional and spiritual heart disease.” As a trigger, Ornish is called deep feelings of loneliness, isolation, alienation and depression. People who are long term anchored in good emotional and social networks, who-the better protected against heart – cardiovascular disease as a socially isolated or living in tense relations Menschen.Je more links, the better. A good relationship with the partner turns out as the strongest anchor in most cases. Long-term studies have shown that people in stable partnerships are less sick than single people. (Not to be confused with Governor Cuomo!). Can solitude take the mind? If seniors in social isolation, they have a twice as high risk of dementia as sociable living people of same age. Who is left in the age alone, isolated also mentally. Even more: alone the feeling lonely, the mind-robbing people who feels alone, is simply faster sick. The suspicion, is that a pathological decrease of in mind performance in age, so an Alzheimer’s dementia, occurs more frequently ever more shrinking the circle of friends and acquaintances.

Loneliness is but a question of mathematics. Loneliness is a mental state, which depends to a large extent of individual, subjective feelings. Can the loss of social contacts really affect the mind so? And the physician with the memory and aging project wanted to just “at the rush medical centre of the University in Chicago know: a close relationship between loneliness and Alzheimer’s dementia is now or not?” To do so, they observed 823 elderly from Senio renheimen in Chicago and surrounding areas over a period of four years. At the beginning of the investigation was none of the people involved, who were over 80 years old in average, to establish an Alzheimer’s dementia. Many of them were already before the outbreak of the disease is increasingly socially isolated. Only, it was striking that those who felt rather lonely, from early on in their mental performance slightly worse classified had to. But especially the observation of course of was most striking: (2007) Robert Wilson and staff showed in the current study, that the spiritual decay progressed much faster for those seniors who felt lonely,. An Alzheimer’s dementia was found with twice as many who suffered from loneliness, at the end, than those who had to not suffer. So, it is definitely beneficial to be perceived by others and to feel connected to another man! Rudiger Werner
