Tangled Synapses Wellness is the health and wellness division of the Tangled Synapses group of companies. Tangled Synapses Wellness focuses on the management of chronic pain resulting, most likely, from suffering a chronic disease, known as "Chronic Inflammation."
According to the CDC, "Chronic diseases and conditions—such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and arthritis—are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems."
Chronic pain is the leading cause of disability in the US. Chronic diseases bring along chronic pain, making the lives of the patients a total nightmare.
The CDC, has determined that chronic diseases, come as a result of "unhealthy behaviors you can change. Four of these health risk behaviors—lack of exercise or physical activity, poor nutrition, tobacco use, and drinking too much alcohol—cause much of the illness, suffering, and early death related to chronic diseases and conditions."
In plain words, chronic diseases are the result of relentless and continuous dysfunction of the three daily life cycles: rest/activity, sleep/wake, and diet/metabolism, which are regulated by an internal biological clock called the circadian rhythm—a term derived from the Latin words circa that means around and dies which means day.
The body, as a biological machine with consciousness, is subjected to malfunction by reason of being alive. In addition, it has a lot of "enemies." These enemies could be self-inflicted (risky behavior) or could be brought up by our internal and external environments.
Our internal environments are everything that lies under the skin such as cells, tissues, organs, subsystems, and systems. For example, veins, blood, the heart, the brain, etc. The body has twelve body systems: cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine, excretory, immune, integumentary (skin, nail, etc.), lymphatic, muscular, nervous, reproductive, respiratory, and skeletal.
Our external environments are people and nature, such as the weather, animals or nature elements perceived through the five senses such as touching, hearing, seeing, smelling, and tasting. Some authors also refer to the internal and external environments as the "7 realms." They are: Mind, Body, Lifestyle, Emotions, Social groups, Surroundings, and Oneself.
Regarding people, dealing with "toxic" people would certainly cause discomfort and stress, but the opposite is also true: dealing with "very nice" people will certainly be very rewarding.
A relentless and prolonged dysfunctional interaction with these environments would, most likely, cause an ailment of some sort. For example, natural phenomena such as hurricanes, droughts, and floods would cause stress, and stress is the "port of entry" to a new host of physical and mental maladies.
In the presence of pain, emotions are used to express our discomfort with pain. In its simplest definition, "Emotions are the result of interpreting physical states as mental states" (Ignacio Sanabria, 2008).
Robert Plutchik, in 1980, divided emotions into eight primary and nine secondary ones. The eight primary emotions are: fear, surprise, sadness, disgust, anger, anticipation, joy, and acceptance. When they "mix" with each other they produce nine secondary emotions. Joy and acceptance produce love. Acceptance and fear produce submission; fear and surprise produce awe; surprise and sadness produce disappointment; sadness and disgust produce remorse; disgust and anger produce contempt; anger and anticipation produce aggression; and anticipation and joy produce optimism. These classifications are by no means inclusive.
A key component of the Tangled Synapses Wellness program focuses on emotion management where four key emotions play an important role in the well-being of the individual. They are: happiness, love, fear, and hate, where fear, for good or for worse, is the emotion that literally "rules" the world. Our wellness program devotes a lot of efforts to deal with FEAR , the emotion that literally ''makes or breaks'' an individual, for a lack of better words.
We will fly our pain sufferers in our private aircraft to selected spa resorts in the Caribbean, (Bahamas, Turks and Caicos), Croatia, Brazil, and other amazing places for healing, relaxing, and having a good time.
