How does the psychological anesthesia work?
During a chemical anesthesia, under the influence of the anesthetics, the free circulation of electrical impulses within the central nervous system is impeded, general sensitivity is abolished, consciousness is lost and the chemical sleep is induced. In other words, chemical anesthesia is a conduction anesthesia produced by the interruption of the nervous signal that circulates towards the brain through the pathways of painful sensitivity.
Which are the mechanisms of psychological anesthesia? How does it work?
According to Dr. Angel Escudero professional experience, unlike the chemical anesthesia, psychological anesthesia is a central, cerebral process. The psychological anesthesia is selective and can be used for a specific area and circumstances.
During psychoanesthesia, using the power of thoughts and will, the brain is deprogrammed from feeling pain for a specific area of the body. The central nervous system produces a particular natural anesthetic substance which is able to suppress pain. It can be rendered inactive at any time and when the body needs it. Its production or availability is permanent. This substance is very likely found in the
neocortex and in the diffuse thalamus, and it has acetilcholinergic and muscarinic capacity. Dr. Angel Escudero called this substance encephalin produced in the brain by the starting of thought, due to the action of thinking, noesin.
Noesinis, most probably, a molecule with acetilcholinergic and muscarinic, selective analgesic, anti-inflammatory capacity, which has anesthetic effects, but preserves patient’s alert consciousness at the same time. Using positive thinking, a harmonic global biological response (HGBR) is produced, in which the capacity of increasing the immune state, cicatrization, tranquillity and the patient’s relaxation would increase, at the same time his general state at all levels improves.
The noesin’s activation depends on the action of thought on the brain, expressing a strong desire of the patient not to feel any pain. Sometimes, the psychological anesthesia can be achieved by the patient alone and at other times his desire has to be reinforced with the help of a therapist.
There are two possible ways of action for noesin: itcombines with some cholinergic receptors and steals them from the action of the acetylcholine, which should join with them in order to produce specific electrical impulses or it avoids the decodification of the electrical impulses, in the case of their arrival to the brain, so the elaboration of the pain is not possible. Sometimes, during psychoanesthesia, some patients obtain analgesia and lose the tactile sensation at the same time, while others obtain the lack of painful sensitivity, with the persistence of other tactile sensations of pressure.
Hopefully, in the future, pain will be able to be controlled by the will of man. To make this possible, some of the programs that have been filed away in the human brain throughout evolution need to be changed. The change should be initiated very early in life, even before birth using maternofetal psychoanalgesia.
