C’mere ‘n HuG me OpenTrackBack Weekend

Besides being a martyr for love, Valentine was actually one of the first to understand the psychology of human emotions. This young priest knew that men who were about to face danger and possible death could only be brave hearts if they went off to war with a hug from the girl they left behind.

A Hug A Day Could Save Your Life

Everyone knows that Feb. 14 is Valentine’s Day, but most people don’t know why we celebrate it in the first place. Valentine was a Roman priest who is believed to have lived around 270 A.D. during the reign of Claudius II.

hug-bears.jpg

Emperor Claudius spent a lot of his time thinking up strategies to create the perfect army. One of his most famous was outlawing marriage for young men because he believed that bachelors made better soldiers than married men because they had less distractions. Valentine didn’t agree with Claudius’ opinion, and he continued to secretly perform marriage ceremonies in spite of the fact that it was against the law.

Eventually the Romans got wind of what Valentine was doing, and they put him to death.

Some 1,700 years later, researchers at the School of Medicine at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill would prove Valentine was right on target.

There’s an underlying scientific explanation for the seemingly magical qualities of a hug that these researchers uncovered. Each time we hug, we increase the level of oxytocin in the blood. This hormone is known as the bonding hormone because it triggers a “caring” response in both men and women. Oxytocin stimulates contractions of the uterus during labor and the release of milk during breast-feeding, so we literally learn to depend on it in the womb.

As adults, that daily dose of oxytocin-laced hugging protects us from heart disease. And while it works for both sexes, women seem to be the greater benefactors..

In a world that has become increasingly more intricate and convoluted, more demanding on our hearts as well as our minds , there is still one simple gift left. And..hey..it’s free. The power of touch.

So many, especially in our society, (where touching is so much more taboo than in Europe), actually suffer from touch deprivation, and affection hunger.

By touching and being touched we connect with others, we bond, we belong.

hug-bear1.jpg

We call companies and get voice activated machines.
We get menus.
We get …alienation.

Hugging or transacting with a human instead of a machine is not just about sentimentality..it’s about our very humanity.

hug-couple.jpg

Warm words and a sweet hug can offer kindness, reassurance, tenderness, support, healing, security , but above of all, a sense of belonging.

Touch has always been used traditionally to help medical as well as psychiatric patients. It has been used to relieve physical pain, as well as depression ,anxiety, even to the extent of bolstering a patient’s will to live.

Premature babies who have been deprived of touch, were specifically touched in their incubators to help them grow and thrive.

hug-kids.jpg

Human beings are not machines.
We have the power to be both compassionate and passionate.

Once upon a time, before the sexual revolution and subsequent universal decadence…doctors and nurses touched patients somewhat freely.
Teachers and school nurses hugged students, patted their heads, even held their hands when crossing the street.

Now…..Condoms and contraceptives can be handed out in school.
But hugs can’t.

Hugs are Nature’s healing. Theyr’e organic, theyv’e got no pesticides, no preservatives, and hey………no artificial ingredients.

hug-horse.jpg

But..the most crucial aspect of all sweet friends.

Hugs have been known to slow down aging and help curb appetite.

Get skinny and stay young?
I’m in!
;)

So, hey..Who have you hugged lately?

    If Valentine was secretly performing marriages, I suspect that those young men were interested in way more than a hug.

    Angel….I agree with everthing. My little girl was 8 weeks prem (2lb) and I remember her in that incubator!

    Mind you here’s the thing – I’m not a very touchy person myself. Like many stiff upper lip Brits a handshake will do and I get really uncomfortable if someone hugs me. It’s one reason Charismatic Churches don’t appeal to me.

    But then I’m a miserable old codger at the best of times.

    So a cyber-hug to you Angel.

    There…that feels better!

  24. InRussetShadows says:

    There’s a lot of truth in that. I salute your research skills. This makes me think of the physiological trauma that divorce and break-ups cause. If you were used to being hugged, having someone kiss you, and so forth on a regular basis, and then that was gone, wouldn’t your body freak out? And if your body freaks out, does that cause any mental disturbance? It makes the post-separation behavior of people a little more understandable. It’s like your taking away candy from someone who has a sweet tooth. The downside is that we all have the same sweet tooth and so we’re all equally vulnerable to the love drug. Don’t get me wrong — I know we’re designed that way. But like a lot of other things in life, it’s good work if you can find it.

    I wonder if Valentine was married? The early church allowed married clergy. I think the Vatican should go back to that policy. Celibacy is vastly overrated.

    A good background story on St. Valentine. I’ll bet that most people don’t know that bit of history!

    Most people understand that a pet needs love–lots of touching (aka “socializing”). But all too often parents neglect to hug their children enough.

    Good post!
