Romantic Love: Is it More than Just Biology?

Romantic LoveSome believe that you can influence whether or not one can influence a feeling of love through integrative nutrition?

We teach integrative nutrition at our distance learning school but at the core of all healing instruction is love. Even before  biology

Biological models of love tend to see love as a mammalian drive, just like hunger. Psychology theory defines love as more of a social and cultural phenomenon. There are probably elements of truth in both views — certainly love is influenced by hormones (such as dopamine ), and how people think and behave in love is influenced by their conceptions of love.

The conventional view in biology is that there are two major drives in love – “sexual attraction”  and attachment. Attachment between adults is presumed to work on the same principles that lead an infant to become attached to its mother. The traditional psychological view sees love as being a combination of companionate love and passionate love. Passionate love is intense longing, and is often accompanied by physiological arousal (shortness of breath, rapid heart rate). Companionate love is affection and a feeling of intimacy not accompanied by physiological arousal.

Studies have shown that brain scans of those in infatuated by love display a resemblance to those with a mental illness. Love creates activity in the same area of the brain that hunger, thirst, and drug cravings create activity in. New love, therefore, could possibly be more physical than emotional. Over time, this reaction to love mellows, and different areas of the brain are activated, primarily ones involving long-term commitments.

Love styles

John Alan Lee identified six basic theories that people use in their interpersonal relationships: Eros — a passionate physical love based on physical appearance

Ludus — love is played as a game; love is playful

Storge— an affectionate love that slowly develops, based on similarity.

Pragma— pragmatic love

Mania — highly emotional love; unstable; the stereotype of romantic love

Agape— selfless altruistic love; spiritual

Psychologist Robert Sternberg created a “triangular theory of love and presents the idea that love is a trilogy of three different components: intimacy, commitment, and passion.

• Intimacy is a form by which two people can share secrets and various details of their personal lives. Intimacy is usually shown in friendships and romantic love affairs.

• Commitment, on the other hand, is the expectation that the relationship is going to last forever. The last and most common form of love is

• Passion: This the most common of the three and is usually expressed as sexual attraction and passion. Passionate love is shown in infatuation as well as romantic love.

In the end the ability to love authentically is the path to greater freedom, happiness and abundance.
