Hysterectomy Blog: Day 5 Healing through the written word.

Feb 9, 2019

Reading Tosha Silver’s beautiful book with #daily #journaling is starting my healing off in a #sacred way.

James W Pennebaker, PhD, documented his decades-long research into the healing effects of journaling noting the powerful effects of #selfexpressive #writing improving the #immune system, now corroborated by the current field of #psychoneuroimmunology.

“When disclosing deeply personal experiences, there are immediate changes in #brainwave patterns, skin conductance levels, significant drops in #blood#pressure and heart rate, as well as improvements in immune function, occur. In the weeks and months afterward, people’s #physical and #psychological #health is improved.” #hysterectomyrecovery
