痛みの匂いを嗅げますか? 疼痛者の痛みは嗅覚を通して同居する痛みのない人に移転する。


Can You Smell Pain?

Science Says You Can!


Cultivating a Sattvic Environment


Science Says You Can!


There are decades of research that support the connection between the sense of smell, memories and emotion. (2) Perfumes, a holiday fire, Christmas trees, hospitals, ball fields, spring, fall, winter ? all have unique scents that deliver emotions, childhood memories and heightened states of awareness. New research suggests that the smell or scent of someone in pain could actually trigger the transference of that pain to someone who smelled the person in pain.

嗅覚と記憶、感情のつながりを裏付ける研究は何十年にもわたる。(2) 香水、ホリデーシーズンの暖炉、クリスマスツリー、病院、球場、春、秋、冬......すべてに、感情や幼少期の記憶、意識の高揚をもたらす独特の香りがある。新しい研究によると、痛みを感じている人の匂いや香りは、実際にその痛みを感じている人の匂いを嗅いだ人に、その痛みを伝える引き金になる可能性があるという。

A new study published in the journal Nature found that when mice were living in the same quarters as other mice, certain types of pain were transferred from one mouse to the other… through the sense of smell.


When people are exposed to certain inflammatory molecules, or they are battling with withdrawal from drugs or alcohol, they can experience extreme sensitivity to touch, chemical irritants or heat. The skin becomes hypersensitive and painful to the touch, and this is exacerbated by chemicals, heat and odors.


“Andrey Ryabinin and his colleagues at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland found that when mice were subjected to these pain-inducing treatments, untreated mice in the same room also acquired sensory pain to touch. Moreover, mice in a separate room began displaying this pain sensitivity after exposure to bedding used by the hypersensitive animals in the first room. The authors conclude that the pain is transmitted by an olfactory cue.” (1)

「ポートランドにあるオレゴン健康科学大学のアンドレイ・リャビニン教授らは、マウスにこのような痛みを誘発する治療を施すと、同じ部屋にいる未治療のマウスも触覚痛を獲得することを発見した。さらに、別の部屋にいるマウスは、最初の部屋にいる過敏な動物が使用した寝具に触れた後、この痛覚過敏を示すようになった。著者らは、痛覚は嗅覚の手がかりによって伝達されると結論づけている。" (1)

The researchers concluded that chronic pain in humans that presents with no apparent structural, physiological or traumatic cause could be due to the social transfer of pain caused by the scent of someone in pain with who you are in close proximity. Perhaps the message is to be aware of the scents you frequent in your environment.


Cultivating a Sattvic Environment


In Ayurveda, all the senses must be regularly exposed to pleasing sights, sounds, tastes, smells and textures. This is called a sattvic environment ? which, unfortunately, is far removed from our modern hustle and bustle lives. First and foremost, it is found in nature as we watch a sunset, listen to a babbling brook, smell the fresh mountain air or while petting your emotional support animal. Ayurveda suggests that a home should incorporate the aspects of nature with flowers, open air, natural fibers and architecture that includes a balance of wood, rock, plants, beautiful music and fresh air.



It is this type of environment that supports optimal mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health, according to Ayurveda. Your environment matters! As indicated by the old Ayurvedic saying, “What you see, you become.”

Pain passed on by smell


Mice housed in the same room as one another can pass certain types of pain to each other through smell.


Social transfer of pain could play a part in chronic pain in humans, especially in cases without apparent physiological cause, the authors suggest.
