PRAYING... A CURE FOR ALZHEIMER!!!
AMERICAN RESEARCHER DR NEWBERG, HAS DISCOVERED THAT WHILE PRAYING THE BRAIN RE-PROGRAMS ITSELF!!
Alzheimer disease is a progressive mental deterioration that can occur in middle or old age, due to generalised degeneration of the brain. It is the commonest cause of premature senility.
The researcher studied what happens to the brain while praying; its activity, sanity, and performance.
Dr. Newberg and his team studied a group of People while practicing meditation for about an hour, using brain imaging techniques. He asked the people to draw a thread with their hands when they reach the highest state of meditation, through this process a small amount of radioactive material is injected into their blood that can be traced in the brain. This radioactive material enables the scientists to see the tincture as it moves to the active areas in the brains. After the group of people are done with the meditation, a re-imaging of the brains was conducted, and then comparing the situation of the normal state and the one of meditation were then possible. The images showed important signals about what is happening in the brain during the meditation.
Dr. Newberg explains what happened; saying that the pictures showed "activity increase in the frontal lobe which is the front of the brain, a region that becomes active in [any] human being when one wants to focus on a particular activity", while the Parietal lobe, which is the back of the brain, showed a significant decrease in activity of the Parietal lobe and it is responsible for one's sense of place. This confirms the saying that meditation leads to losing the sense of place. Dr. Newberg commitment: "During meditation, people lose their feelings of themselves, and really feel losing the sense of place and time, and this was exactly what we saw."
The Power of Praying
Also, similar complex interactions happen between different areas of the brain during meditation with the ones that occur during the so-called spiritual or mystical experiences. Previous studies led by dr. Newberg conducted on the brain's activity of Franciscan nuns while praying known as "focus" praying.
Truth is, the verbal part of the prayer activates parts of the brain, but dr. Newberg found out that "it activates the area of attention in the brain, and reduced the activity of the one responsible for the sense of place."
This is not the first time scientists examine spiritual matters. In 1998, the importance of therapeutic praying emerged when scientists in the United States studied a group of heart disease patients. They found out an un precedent result, they suffer fewer complications after a short time of praying.
This researcher affirms that faith is very necessary for the existence of human beings, because it makes them more adapted to fate and answers the questions raised by the brain.
Subhan'Allah!! Allah is the Greatest!!
