EPIDEMIOLOGY OF THOUGHT POLLUTION AND ILLHEALTH. AUTHOR. Dr.A. K. AVASARALA MBBS,M.D. PROFESSOR &HEAD DEPT OF COMMUNITY MEDICINE & EPIDEMIOLOGY PRATHIMA INSTITUTE OF MEDICAL SCIENCES, KARIMNAGAR,A.P.. INDIA :
PROMPT These three ideas in my mind prompted me to develop this lecture that the human brain is the source of Thought pollution which is the cause of all the world problems including health problems that Right Thinking is slowly loosing its place in this world and is replaced by the polluted thinking, and the answer to prevent polluted thinking and its effects is only by MENDING THE MIND
LEARNING OBJECTIVES What is thought pollution? Why thought pollution? How it effects the health of 1. individuals 2.families 3.communities 4.nations 5.and world at large How to solve this problem?
GOAL OF POLLUTED THINKING “I alone must be well”
MAGNITUDE OF THE PROBLEM It destroys the human value system societal integrity and stature family structure and strength individual character and results in weak, immoral and unhealthy families and society.
MAGNITUDE OF THE PROBLEM Thought pollution increases crime, antisocial behavior, suicides, psycho somatic disorders depressive disorders, accidents violence and wars
ANCIENT ORIGIN Polluted thinking started with Adam and Eve They thought wrongly in a different way Contradictory to God’s way of thinking and advice Hence they suffered
RESERVOIR. HUMAN BRAIN (RESERVOIR OF THOUGHT POLLUTION) Social problems Health problems
NECESSARY CAUSE “ I and mine” thinking is the root cause of all the world health problems and global problems
CAUSAL COMPLEMENT HOST FACTORS:- GENETIC SUSCEPTIBILITY ILLITERACY JEALOUSY& GREED OVER SEX ANGER MISERLINESS TOO MUCH MATERIALISTIC WANTS EGO INFERIORITY COMPLEX
CAUSAL COMPLEMENT ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCERS Poor environment for child rearing Large family Problem family Broken family Bad peer groups
EPIDEMIOLOGICAL INTERACTION. (AGENT) I & MINE HOST FACTORS:- GENETIC SUSCEPTIBILITY ILLITERACY JEALOUSY& GREED OVER SEX ANGER MISERLINESS MATERIALISTIC WANTS EGO INFERIORITY COMPLEX ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCERS POOR ENVIRONMENT FOR CHILD REARING LARGE FAMILY PROBLEM FAMILY BROKEN FAMILY BAD PEER GROUPS
EFFECTS ON INDIVIDUAL HEALTH POLLUTED THINKING ALWAYS CAUSES BOTH SOCIAL AND HEALTH PROBLEMS WRONG THINKING CREATES SUSPICION AND TENSION IN THE INDIVIDUAL AND HIS THOUGHTS WILL GO ON CONTINUING AND BECOMES COMPLEX IN NATURE THEREBY INCREASING BLOOD PRESSURE,CARDAIC MORBIDITY AND MORTALITY WRONG THINKING PROMOTES ANTISOCIAL BEHAVIOR IN THE INDIVIDUAL AND PROMPTS FOR CRIME AND VIOLENCE.
EFFECTS ON THE FAMILY HEALTH Bad thinking, jealous thinking, non adaptive selfish thinking results 1. IN LOSS OF HUMAN VALUES 2.IN LOSS OF RELATIONSHIPS, 3. IN LOSS OF ETHICAL AND MORAL VALUES and leads to breakdown of joint families into nuclear families leaving the elders to their fate and allowing them to go into depression,psychoses, suicides etc.
EFFECTS ON THE FAMILY HEALTH IMPROPER FAMILY DECISSIONS, ADVERSE OPINION ABOUT FAMILY PLANNING, WRONG BELIEFS,SUPERSTITIONS ABOUT FAMILY, CHILD HEALTH, MATERNAL HEALTH All of them will lead to family ill health family disruption loss of intrafamilial relation ships loss interfamilial relationship
EFFECTS ON COMMUNITY HEALTH Community will be healthy only when the families are devoid of polluted thinking Community health deteriorates with polluted thinking Aboriginal, tribal communities suffer from greater morbidity and mortality due polluted and ignorant thinking Bad life styles in a community resulting from wrong thinking lead to lot of ill health in a community.
EFFECTS ON NATION’S HEALTH Poor, irrational and politically motivated health policies lead to ill health and loss of man hours to the nation. Wrong decisions resulting in poor budget allocations for health leads to nation’s ill health. This is a universal defective thinking for all the nations in the world.They allocate huge amounts to kill each other ( defense budget) and less for survival budgets.
EFFECTS ON WORLD’S HEALTH Rich nations, know that green house gases are causing problems like global warming, cyclones, tsunamis, earth quakes. Their selfish, narrow minded thinking prevented them to accept the Rio de Janero Resolutions to prevent global warming. Most of the green house gases are released by richest countries.
PREVENTION OF THOUGHT POLLUTION Possible only when 1.One knows who he is ? 2.What he is made up of ? 3.Who are other living beings? 4.What is this world? 5.What is the mission one has to accomplish?
PREVENTION By self realization (by having the divine knowledge) By understanding the life events or happenings By following the laws of life
ONLY BY SELF REALLIZARTION Conditional knowledge (Worldly ) Unconditional knowledge (Divine) Later helps one to understand himself and others (self realization)
WHO AM I Entire universe is made up off mass of Godliness and everything (living or non living) is carved out of this godliness. Hence everyone is made from Godliness Everyone is a part and parcel of all-pervading Godliness
LIFE HAPPENNINGS Whatever happened, it is for one’s good Whatever is happening, that too is for one’s good What is going to happen,that also will be for one’s good (HINDU PHILOSOPHY) ( LORD’S TEACHING)
What you have lost What you have brought to loose? What you have lost to repent? What is lost that you have created? One must be contented to be happy and healthy
WHAT YOU HAVE GAINED Whatever you have gained is from here only Whatever you have given, you have given it here only. Whatever you are thinking your own today belongs to some one else yesterday and it will belong to some one else tomorrow.
EARTH LAUGHS Earth laughs at the people who claim its ownership as no one has been able to take away even a small piece of earth or its belongings with him so far.. It has seen so many generations who lived on it and died
LAWS OF LIFE All are made up of same godliness,hence all should be given equal importance and respect
LAWS OF LIFE All should be well and possess 1.RIGHT THINKING 2.RIGHT DESIRE 3.RIGHT SPEECH 4.RIGHT TRANQAUILITY
RIGHT THINKING EXAMPLE This Great Sage, RAMANA MAHARSHI, once, saw someone felling coconuts from a tree. He requested him to be gentle lest the tree will have pain and suffer. The person laughed at the sage. Sage on his return found the person crying as he was hurt by the knife while felling the coconuts. The great sage told him that the tree might have wept in the same way when he cut its coconuts rudely.
EXAMPLES OF EQUALITY He performed rituals in a similar manner for his mother, for his pet cow and for a fox who have died in his ashram (house)
? SANE THINKING ( HEALTHY THINKING ) SIMPLE AND NATURAL THINKING STRAIGHT FORWARD THINKING FRANK THINKING UNBIASED THINKING UNSELFISH THINKING HARMLESS THINKING Goal of sane thinking is that all must be well
FOLLOW THE TRUTH OF LIFE “ After observation and analysis, if it agrees with reasoning and conductive to the good of one and all, then accept it. It is truth.”
MEND THE MIND Cultivate healthy thinking Healthy thinking makes your mind healthy, strong and non –guilty. Sound mind in sound body promotes healthy thinking and healthy decision making Mend your way of thinking in right direction Think rightly and righteously
