The belief that smoking cigarettes relieves anxiety doesn’t hold up and may in fact do the opposite, a British study suggests.

Many smokers and health professionals believe that tobacco smoking reduces anxiety, despite a lack of evidence.

Researchers in London followed 491 smokers enrolled at a smoking cessation clinic. The participants were asked about why they smoke.

“People who achieve abstinence experience a marked reduction in anxiety whereas those who fail to quit experience a modest increase in the long term,” Mairtin McDermott of King’s College London and co-authors concluded in the British Journal of Psychiatry.

“These data contradict the assumption that smoking is a stress reliever, but suggest that failure of a quit attempt may generate anxiety.”

Anxiety levels fell among the 68 smokers who quit after six months.

The increase in anxiety in those who relapsed was largest for those with a current diagnosis of psychiatric disorder and whose main reason for smoking was to cope with stress, the researchers said.

The study was funded by the British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, Economic and Social Research Council, Medical Research Council, and the UK Department of Health. One of the study’s authors has done consulting work on smoking cessation for pharmaceutical companies.

Tuned-in Youth Adam Dreamhealer

As an energy healer, I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with many people of all ages. It is particularly encouraging working with young people as they are often acutely aware of their own energy system.

Being 21 years-old myself, it is easy to relate to youth who contact me after reading my books or attending workshops. Our awareness of our energy is not unique — but our acknowledgement of it and speaking about it is — at least in our culture. Youth are sometimes cited as being more spiritually aware and in touch with their innate abilities and connections. But perhaps they just feel more able to freely express themselves.

Rolling Stone magazine published an article “The Boy With the Magic Touch” about my work as a healer with Dr. Edgar Mitchell, an American astronaut, and Ronnie Hawkins, a famous rock star. As anticipated, I received thousands of responses. What we didn’t expect was hundreds of emails from teenagers and 20-year-olds telling me about their personal energy experiences. Many had never told a soul about them for fear of being ridiculed. Some had confided in a parent, only to discover that they were judged and mocked, or dismissed entirely. Reactions of others are sometimes fear-based as a lack of understanding leads to an agitated, uncomfortable state, and point-of-view.

I heard from others who had experienced healing, both as healer and healee. It was a profound event, yet one that many felt unable to discuss with their peers, parents or anyone at all. Some expressed their relief in finally being able to correspond with someone who really understood.

At high school, there is intense pressure to conform. The biggest fear of most students, is being different, or being seen as different. What is viewed as “paranormal” is to be hidden; or exposed at your own peril. I learned that being a rock star is cool: Healing one isn’t. So I too kept quiet about it, at least throughout my high school years. Maintaining the status-quo is very restrictive and narrow in its perspective. In elementary school my class was shown a film starring skeptics who debunked paranormal events. It was clear that energy awareness and energy healing fell into this unacceptable category. No wonder many young people keep quiet about what we are so naturally aware of.

Now that I am at University, most people are too busy to care. I am constantly surprised that some of the biggest and strongest athletes I have known, understand the importance of energy fields,
and are interested in what I do.

I have also found that the internet makes it is easier to find out about energy healing and make connections to others with similar interests. Youth is tuned into these technological advances and this can validate that what they are experiencing is “normal”. As babies, we were totally connected with our mother’s energy system, which is an important part of our survival mechanism. As we develop, we are mindful of other’s energy directly affecting us. This web involves more energy connections as our world of relationships grows. Every energy has an effect on our energy – we are all intertwined at our most basic and natural level. Children know this and youth must stay in tune with it.

Positive thoughts and intentions affect us all far beyond our conscious awareness. Acknowledge this connection to everything and the possibilities for the future are limitless.

Patient gets world’s first artificial trachea July 10, 2011

A patient will be discharged from a hospital in Sweden on Friday after his cancerous windpipe was removed and replaced by the world’s first artificial trachea, made of his own stem cells grown on a man-made plastic matrix.

“This is the first permanent artificial organ ever,” says Paolo Macchiarini, professor of regenerative surgery at the Karolinksa Institute in Stockholm, who led an international team of researchers.

Just as remarkable as the man-made windpipe, he says, is how quickly it was produced. Collaborators in Sweden, London and the U.S. created the trachea from scratch in just two days for a 36-year-old man whose cancer was so far advanced that only emergency surgery offered him any chance of survival.

Rejection is unlikely because the new trachea was made of a special plastic polymer and the patient’s own cells, Macchiarini says.

“Frankly speaking, I was very much scared,” said the patient, Andemariam Teklesenbet of Eritrea, who is a student at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik. “I was about to refuse the surgery, but Dr. Macchiarini explained everything to me. I prayed. I accepted it. I believed in it.”
