The second half of the webinar session was forwarded by Dr. Sinchan Das where his main didactic area was the Psychological aspect of infertility as a whole. He adds that our mind is subdivided into three, namely; conscious which is 5%, unconscious 94% and subconscious 1% where the humans today are more focused with their conscious aspects where their unconscious and subconscious aspects are completely neglected or not taken in consideration. Although unconscious mind is the direct derivative of universal magnetic field, where each and every turmoil in the universal energy field results into turbulence in the geo magnetic field and electromagnetic field, influencing the unconscious mind. The coarse information from the unconscious sphere is modulated and transduced by the subconscious mind into the understandable and interpretable signals by the conscious mind. Similarly, the information from the conscious mind will be modulated by the subconscious mind into the understandable and interpretable information by the unconscious mind.
Dr. Das adds that there are enumerable conflicts that arise within these three spheres due to that turmoil. Moving onto the main topic of discussion the infertility, Dr. Sinchan Das delivered through his words that neuroendocrine system of the body is maintained by three axises , which are hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis (HPG) hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA) and hypothalamic-pituitary- thyroid (HPT), so there are mainly three levels which are the peripheral organic level, pituitary and the superior most level is hypothalamus, in order to control the neuroendocrinal framework.
Proceeding with his discussion he further illuminated that this hypothalamus is controlled by the Circadian system and the unconscious psychological sphere. Further he stresses that we as humans within our day-to-day practices are mainly focused on our peripheral organic system where the hormonal turbulence or organic insufficiency is notable irrespective of their nature and we are trying to correct it surgically or medically in our daily practice by the higher authorities of the system.
On concluding with the session, Dr. Sinchan Das highlighted any disturbances in the Circadian Rhythm is one of the most important and the responsible factor for those diseases which are the disease pillars of the society, like; infertility, obesity, stress, depression, metabolic disorders and many more. This Circadian system disruption results into a gross turmoil within the psychosomatic sphere which causes several epigenetic and genetic mutations; in the long run specific mutated gene are encountered in this series of serious pathological conditions. Each and everything is directly related with the Circadian Rhythm and the unconscious psychological sphere. Without correcting this Circadian system, we are manipulating these kind of pathologies by which we can manage but cannot cure disease. Lastly, he also adds we are actually trying to manipulate this peripheral system with surgical and medical maneuver on a regular basis by our biased artificial medical aid due to which the actual disease scenarios is getting even more complicated that is ultimately resulting in a dangerous future pattern of the mankind.
The overall session was held in a very informative manner where all the participants were allowed to ask their open questions to both of the guest speakers.
