Exercise endorphins

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise endorphins


Avatar n tn I was wondering what role endorphins play in sexual arousal and desire. Does a release of endorphins directly make you feel aroused? Or do they work in an indirect way by giving you a general sense of well being, happiness, and excitement which will enable you to feel aroused, desirous, and pleasure in a possible sexual situation? Thanks!!!
Avatar f tn i always had luck coaxing the endorphins back with exercise ... even walking in the early days of recovery. i still need to exercise most days in order to get the endorphins going -- good luck.
579469 tn?1311709150 ) sensations of what feels like endorphins kicking in. This is not my first time detoxing (unfortunately) and I don't ever recall having this sensation before like this. After 3 days of crawling my way through acute withdrawals, today and I am noticing these strange "rushes" of what feels like endorphins kicking in throughout the day. When it happens I can sit, move, think, whatever, just a little more comfortably. It's happened three times today.
Avatar n tn the tyrosine is felt immediately...exercise is almost more important to stimulate the receptors to release these endorphins again as we have substituted fake ones for so long that our brain did not see a need to make them anymore like it should...u r still stuck with extra receptors we built during use for overload,,but they will go to sleep with time and quit wanting to be fed which causes us to crave all very logical if u study up on it...good luck..
1808884 tn?1324349303 AMEN! Exercise increases endorphins we so badly need during detox. I would feel normal 5 minutes into exercise and it lasted a while after I finished. U hear of folks getting addicted to running...this is why! They crave the endorphin release. I am not saying become an exercise addict...but while detoxing...do all u can to make it easy on urself and exercise is a great anti-depressant and anti-anxiety tool...it also gives u nrg even if u feel so tired...so tired u dont wanna do it...
Avatar m tn A question on behalf of my uncle. Lack of exercise is a risk factor for coronary heart disease. Is it because no exercise can increase cholesterol or is there some other reason.???
Avatar f tn You have everything you need to get this done; a great attitude, some supplements, good music & a desire to get moving. Exercise is a big help as helps boost natural endorphins & grown new brain cells. Remember to eat as well as you can afford, plenty of chicken, fish & fresh veges. If you are not a fish eater, it's worth supplementing with 4grams of fish oil a day. Go for it.

Avatar n tn (I cant believe I got through, I must collect myself a moment). Does anyone know how long it takes to have ones endorphins return to pre-opoid days? I am just wondering about the day that I attempt to only use things like Yoga, meditation, and maybe the antidepressants to tackle my fibromyalgia and arthritis. I have wanted to know this for a long time but could not get through to make a new post. This is one exciting day! I think I will do a quick pick on Lotto!
403399 tn?1201836695 I mentioned this in another thread, but I was just thinking that we all take these horrible little pills to produce the euphoric feeling it produces. We love the endorphins. My question is, how do we naturally produce these endorphins? Is the feeling the same as produced by the pills? It's been so long for me, that I really don't know the answer.
Avatar m tn 5/750 mg) but then i stopped and i am now worried i permanently damaged my natural endorphins. does it sound like i was abusing the vicodin? do you think i damaged my natural endorphin production from the vicodin?? please reassure me because i dont want this effecting my happiness later in life.
Avatar f tn It doesn't stop your body from producing endorphins but research does appear to state there is some connection between an excess of dopamine (which is the standard theory of what causes psychosis in schizophrenia) and some types of endorphins. Gatorade is for restoring electrolytes not endorphins.
Avatar f tn From a mental standpoint, I think it's really important to be happy with yourself if you achieve something on the exercise front and slowly go from there. That said, my exercise at the moment consists of taking my horse for a walk down the road with plenty of stops for her to stuff herself silly on the country roadside, and just enjoy my time with her. If I go on a brisk non stop walk, I just suddenly hit a wall and run out of go, so I'm settling for baby steps at the moment.
1741471 tn?1407162630 Back into 1970s, the understanding of the function of endorphins in the body was improving. In my chapter 2″The Emotional Brain and Exercise” I talked extensively with a phenomenal psychiatrist Dr Michael Liebowitz. I still remember like if it was yesterday that when I was doing research about Dr Liebowitz, it fascinated me that he wrote a great book In 1983 called The Chemistry of Love . Dr Michael Liebowitz broke the ice when he outlined the relationship between endorphins and love.
Avatar f tn my endorphins are good today... got exercise feel happier.
Avatar n tn Also, after several months of regular exercise, you develop an increased sensitivity to endorphins (a higher high from the same level of endorphins), and endorphins that are produced tend to stay in your blood for a longer period of time. This makes longer duration exercise easier (you're feeling no pain) and it causes your exercise high to last for a longer period of time after exercise.
Avatar f tn I did not join this class to lose weight specifically -- I joined for the natural endorphins from exercise -- but I certainly dont want to gian weight.. My diet has not changed. The only difference is this class. Im discouraged and don't know if I should quit the class .. But I do enjoy it.. so Im stuck. Does you know why this could happen?? My mom keeps saying its because "your building muscle and mucle weighs more than fat" -- which I have heard a million times..
4776875 tn?1359052364 The release of endorphins depends on the type of exercise, intensity and duration. Cardiovascular exercises of moderate-high intensity for a period of 30 minutes will trigger endorphin release. So, jog/brisk walk/dance or yoga for half an hour will yield the best results. 10 minutes gives you a slight mood boost, but if you're talking about euphoria, you'll need to push it. I would set a goal to stay motivated, be it for food, beauty, endurance, or bragging rights.
Avatar n tn I pasted this post from the exercise forum and wondered if it is true or not. If it is, then every time I have chest pain when I exercise, I will relly be worried. "Both an event monitor and a PET scan are good ideas to try. Ask you doctor for an EKG to check the electrical status of your heart. The pain you are experiencing at high heart rates is caused by a lack of oxygen. The heart is racing to the point that it's need for oxygen is greater than the supply and you get pain.
213991 tn?1214276619 I think ppl who exercise have a definate advantage when going through w.d. You force yourself to get your *** up and face the world. Even though you go through the anxiety of dealing with ppl and just being out in society you know soon you can strain your muscles and deal with that stress in a healthy manner. If you also follow a good well balanced diet with good and bad foods your body definatley responds.
4847640 tn?1362727527 If I skip my back routine for more then a few days the pain comes back. I'm hoping that with a longer period of exercise and when my body starts to respond to pain properly I will have very little pain. I wish for success to everyone out there struggling to get their "old selves" back.
488766 tn?1306108769 Exercise is key for many reasons and detox is just one of them :-). I see you're 41 so all the sins of your 20s and 30s should start catching up with you now. I've been back in the gym straight for 15 months working cardio, strength and serious stretching; diet is good but I'm consuming almost 4500 calories a day gaining some wicked size now...5'10" at 245lbs @ 18% bodyfat...
Avatar m tn If one's liver is damaged then exercise may bring fatigue instead of well being or possibly exercise is always helpful no matter what. I have read posts that exercise reduces your immune system. So what--if the virus is gone -it is gone. I do expect post side effects, but I feel I can just exercise my way through them and not harm myself. Also went to the beach and for a few days and got some sun after 6 months that also made me feel a bit off. These are probably all post tx related..
Avatar n tn Hey if I had the Procrit shots Lance got, I'd be off and working up a sweat too. I've tried to keep up the exercise but the day I passed out and scared my husband half to death was the end of the "just push yourself" idea. Obviously "just do it" does NOT work for everyone. Im glad some can still exercise to the max but push myself or not, there is no way I can keep up to my previous level on these meds.
Avatar n tn I suggest that you start exercising in small amounts. There is a connection between exercise and reduced anxiety. When exercising at a high enough intensity for a long enough period of time endorphins are released into your blood. Sometimes people experience this during a long run, and this is called the "runner's high". I've experienced this myself, and it is really quite a euphoric feeling. The fact that you feel sore may be a result of tension from your anxiety.
Avatar f tn Your doing Grrrreat!!!!! We have pushed exercise on here for a long time due to the fact that it stimulates the Serotonin & Endorphin back up that got whacked out of place when we use. Lets not forget about the other Brain Chems that it fires back up too. Music & the Sun works wonderful too. YES!!! A nice BIG Positive Attitude goes a long ways. YOU sound Very Happy. Proud of You! Keep it up and do not look back.
572651 tn?1531002957 Obviously it is important to stay as physically active as possible with this crazy disease. I'm wondering what type of exercise routine any of you may have found that is "do-able." Currently I am doing Tai Chi, which is great for my balance and Chi (life force energy) but offers little aerobic benefit. I am also doing water aerobics two times a week, along with swimming laps.
Avatar f tn definitely exercise is the way to go to release endorphins. if you are ot sure how'll you react start by taking gentle forms of exercise like walking, swimming or yoga. realise though that when you start you may be out of breath. this feeling may seem like the beginnings of a panic attack but as long as you realise that you're likely to be out of breath then i'm sure you'll find a way through! good luck.
398758 tn?1248223891 So, I thought I'd get a post going about exercise. I wanted to know what everyone's preferred exercise has been since surgery and chemo. I think the best thing I've done for myself is to keep exercising. Before surgery, after, during chemo, after, etc. I'm no jock--I'm short and overweight--but I stay strong physically. I do aerobics and weight lifting...in a pool! Believe it or not, you can do sit-ups, jumping jacks, etc, in the water.
