Exercise benefits psychologically

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise benefits psychologically


Avatar n tn Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz? Will it affect my future plan of having a healthy pregnancy? Also, i was told if i do want to get pregnant, i should wait 6 months after taking the birth control pills. is that true?
Avatar n tn I have recently become weightlifting and have felt psychologically better than ever. I feel the benefits from working out, may possibly outweigh the risks. (Incidentally, my doctors have never detected an arrythmia from my Holter monitors.) I would greatly appreciate it if you could respond to me on this matter. Thank you.
Avatar f tn Instead, supplementing with glutathione precursors like N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC) can be used by the body to increase production of glutathione. Another way to boost glutathione levels is to get plenty of exercise. This is because exercise exponentially increases the amount of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) in the body's cells. Known by scholars as the chemical basis for energy and chemical reactions in the body, ATP is needed to produce glutathione.
Avatar n tn And my attention is diverted to getting oxygen into my lungs. Common sense tells us the benefits of exercise outweigh the risks, physiologically and psychologically. btw, my retina was torn immediately after a swim. Probably happened while swimming. I still swim. Maybe that's why my floaters still swimming around, and not sink to the bottom!
Avatar f tn I think the exercise may have saved me somewhat from the weight gain people get on that drug. Also, the psychological benefits of exercise are enormous. So I am guessing that maybe your pattern so far is a coincidence. But you never know with this disease. Everybody seems different.

Psychologically, you may feel that your head is just too crowded with thoughts (and not good ones at that), or irrationality, moodiness, proneto outbursts, etc. If you are feeling very stressed and / or anxious, first cut out anything in your diet that could be causing it or intensifying it, like caffeine, sugar and alcohol.
8428738 tn?1400362075 Both physically and psychologically your world is bound to change and change drastically. At first, you may experience an intense feeling of being afraid or have a severe feeling of disappointment. You may think that the situation is beyond your ability . It is very important to get the right information about your kind of melanoma and how it is best handled.

Avatar f tn My problem lies here, ever since these symptoms started about 5 months ago i have not felt the same psychologically. My body seems to not be responding properly to certain stimulus and it is quite concerning. It feels as if my brain has completely shut off all feeling. For example, I never feel hungry anymore and it not really as if i don't want to eat but nothing TELLS me to eat. The system that says "hey your hungry" seems to have completely stopped working.
Avatar n tn I understand that you can become psychologically dependendent on sleep medication (such as Ambien.)Even with the 5 mg. of Ambien I've never slept more than 4 or 5 hours in a row.(Then I am up every two hours, but not anxious about it. I go right back to sleep.)I have tried lavender baths, relaxation exercises, warm milk, have limited my caffeine intake to no avail and don't work out too close to bedtime.
Avatar m tn I do hope to experience some benefits from exercise and diet change. Based on what you've said I think I can make an accurate assumption that ADD is not something you're very familiar with. Again, I know I posted in a heart forum but Adderall and other stimulant medications are very safe. Between 1999 & 2003 4 out of 1 million people taking adderall died. My main concern is having a heart-rate of 98bpm 4-6 hours per day.
1734735 tn?1413781671 I know many people have tried diet and exercise without success and there are many people on this board feeling like crap. I feel for you because I have walked in your shoes. I can't thank the members of this community enough who supported me through the trauma of diagnosis and the eight subsequent relapses in the first year. I truly owe you a debt of gratitude for helping me through the misery. I promised that I would report back in five years as to whether the diet worked or not.
1245000 tn?1268572088 Wow, these comments are REALLY helpful. I see that aftercare is a must. I've been addicted (well, psychologically and mentally) to adderall for about 3 or 4 years and the last I had was about 5 days ago. And they were binges--about 6 day binges out of every thirty days. I do have easy access, and like all of you know, is a major hindrance to recovery. I am sick and tired of adderall, but we know that we can still give our drug the control despite the negative consequences.
Avatar f tn It all started with that "eye" thing last month, yes? If I didn't know better -from reading your many posts- I'd almost think you were looking for trouble. But the truth seems to be more that you are FINDING trouble -and wish you weren't. In that case, lady, I've got good news for you! I did take Zoloft for about 6 months. The context is this: I was in therapy for panic and anxiety -and those problems had been solved. I was no longer on any meds for them.
210982 tn?1280987495 The pills did not help my back so much and the only thing I can attest to helping my back was exercise.. I had injections, epidurals, nerve blocks etc. The epidurals would help for a few days and then that shooting pain down the leg would come back. Was told I was not a candidate for surgery because I was too young. For me exercise was the only thing to help. I started barely able to stand straight and walked a little at a time.. then I increased..
Avatar m tn I have a similar situation (NSVT), and have received varying opinions on the benefits of having an ablation for it. When this first came up, I was actually pretty obsessed and worried about it. As time has passed though these things have not been much of an inhibition and I just deal with it. Exercise (running) seems to help my outlook on it immensly, although I I find my NSVT does limit my running distances and gives me pause for worry when I am at these limits.
Avatar n tn and forget the big picture which includes a whole complex of lifestyle issues/choices such as diet, weight, exercise, smoking, etc. Drinking in defined moderate quantatites actually has been shown to have cardiovascular benefits. Of course, and this has been repeated in other drinkingthreads, if anyone has had a drinking problem in the past, that's a different story because there could always be the risk of relapse.
Avatar m tn So, I've been really trying to let my brain produce its own GABA, by supplementing with L-Theanine (suntheanine brand). I've been taking 2-3 times the recommended dose with no noticeable benefits. It's supposed to help people, but I am guessing it only helps people who can actually produce sufficient amounts of the neurotransmitter (not me). So, I went to the health food store and bought the most potent Valerian and Passion Flower they had, hoping to not need an extra Ativan tonight.
Avatar m tn I had/have fatigue, exercise intolerance, muscle spasms daily, and muscle cramps that would wake me up in the middle of the night in random places. These cramps were similar to getting a charley horse, but in my neck, bicep, traps, or hip/thigh. That muscle would be sore or "pulled" feeling all the next day. I also was having arthritic symptoms in both hands, feet joints, and knees. They tested me for gout and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) but both tests came up negative.
Avatar f tn It could be that the teleprevir did the big hammer job, and standard treatment is just about strong enough to suppress the virus while I'm taking it (but that it might resurface when I stop), or that maybe I need 6 more months to take me to 48 weeks just like type 1's who hadn't had teleprevir, or I should 'taper off' slowly, or maybe there would be no benefit a all to continuing and I could stop now and 'take my chances' - they truly are unable to advise me (this was a trial, after all, and t
Avatar n tn I'm a PVC person and have been having a difficult time adjusting psychologically. My awareness of my PVCs is recent. In August, I noticed frequent skips while driving (I thought my heart was STOPPING and then RESTARTING) so I motored on over to the ER. I had no pain, no dizziness, however. My resting heart rate was 110 or so (though I think now this was due to the PANIC brought on by the PVC episode, as I don't normally have a rapid heartbeat normally and haven't since).
Avatar n tn My state is a indoor smoke free state and that was very helpful for me. The best advice I can offer and it was what was told to me, is to exercise, take long walks, keep yourself busy and every time you feel the need or get an urge, go on the whyquit website and read an article. I guarantee, by the time you finish, the urge will have passed. Carrot sticks and celery will help with oral fix : ) Keep in touch and stay strong.
1294093 tn?1280380036 We both have part time jobs, I've had mine a lot longer than he has. Both jobs have benefits like insurance etc. Since we broke up, he's started drinking (OFTEN), getting drunk every few days. Now he's smoking pot as well, and who knows what else. He's only 17 years old, I'm 19 years old. I haven't been doing drugs or drinking. He came to 2 or 3 doctors appointments with me but other than that hasn't been supportive at all. When the baby is born, what are his rights?
4614494 tn?1368359985 I really also believe for me age has alot to do with it..KEEP doing what u r doing..Exercise is the Key plus the vit/min.

9998412 tn?1407450397 Good morning, This is tough for me to write because it means I have to admit to myself that I have a problem. A little background - I have been taking 4 to 6 Norco 10/325 pills daily for the last 5+ years. I began taking them to deal with neck/back pain that was the result of breaking my neck (C5 fracture) in 1993. I had a C4 - C6 fusion after my initial injury and lived for several years relatively pain free until about 8 years ago when I developed bone spurs at the top/bottom of my fusion.
Avatar m tn to exist, staying optimistic, because I want to be psychologically capable of handling the possible disaster of relapse. After 6 months post TX negative TMA test as a 1A, assuming no exposure, how many people relapse? Thanks for your help. The people in this site are wonderful.
203342 tn?1328740807 Samson is psychologically damaged past the point of no return. On occasion, he will allow me to pet him. He is absolutely terrified of people and will potty in the floor if you make eye contact with him. Isn't that sad? He's been here almost 2 yrs.! Both of their medical issues are astounding....One will NEVER be potty trained! The female (Ginger) cries over all her toys....Were her babies taken away too soon, every time??? I don't know!
Avatar m tn Try to encourage him to do whatever exercise that he can. Walk with him. My sense of balance got kind of goofy. It helped me to have my husband's arm nearby. We have a wonderful member here who is currently on the transplant list at UCSF. He is full of good information. You can a private message to HectorS or I'm sure he'll reply when he sees your post. BTW: I had a transplant and recently completed hep C tx. I feel good now but it took time.
Avatar f tn I'm glad you got off of them so easy. It's easier for those of us not psychologically addicted because we don't have the added stress of psychological wothdrawls. And some being weened of their pain meds have an easier physical time and for other the efffects feel like the most awful flu that could ever be. But that's where people mistale physical dependance for addiction.
Avatar n tn It usually takes about 7-10 minutes for your PNS to activate once the exercise is started but the more you do it, the better you get at it. How to activate: 1. Lay down on your bed or couch 2. Start breathing deeply 3. The key to PNS activation is deep relaxation. The best way to achieve this is relaxing one body part at a time. Start with your left leg, in the calf, then move up to the thigh, then your foot, sole of your foot, toes etc.
