화가나고 무섭고 해결점을 찾지못해 어리둥절할 때는 항상 몸이 긴장되어 있고 따라서 호홉을 등한히 또 얕게 하고 있습니다. 그러면 더욱 더 화가나고 더 긴장되죠.
보통 정맥으로 투입되는 인공홀몬인 Pitocin은 기쁨과 사랑과 우호의 감정같은 자연으로 뇌에서 유리되는 Oxytocin 홀몬과 는 다르다고 합니다.
Drips of synthetic oxytocin
A drip of synthetic oxytocin (syntocinon or pitocin) is a substitute for the natural pituitary oxytocin a woman is supposed to release when giving birth. It can be used for labour induction, or to make uterine contractions more effective during a labour that started spontaneously. The need for synthetic oxytocin is a symptom of an inappropriate hormonal balance. It is therefore dependent on environmental factors. It is related to the degree of privacy and the feeling of safety. The need for synthetic oxytocin is usually associated with a need for epidural in the context of modern departments of obstetrics.
The long-term consequences of being born after a labour induced or augmented by synthetic oxytocin cannot be easily evaluated among humans, since randomized controlled studies are not feasible.
There are basic differences between the effects of an intravenous injection of oxytocin and the effects of the same hormone released by the pituitary gland. The first difference is that injected oxytocin does not cross the blood-brain barrier and does not reach the brain receptors: it has no behavioural effects. In other words it is not a hormone of love. The second difference is that the natural hormone must be released by pulsations in order to be effective. Intravenous injection is continuous; this is a way to explain why the doses of synthetic oxytocin must be comparatively high to be effective.
At a time when most women rely on intravenous oxytocin, because they cannot release their natural oxytocin (and other love hormones), new questions must be raised in terms of civilization.
