Exercise science terms

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise science terms


Avatar f tn I have a very high intolerance to exercise. I would like to start an exercise routine that will get me toned and back into shape, but without risking something happening to my heart. I am 130lbs, 5'5" and my scale says 26% muscle and 33% body fat. Once upon a time I was in much better shape - I was always one of those girls that ate like a cow and never gained a pound over 100lbs (I have a small frame). The last time I went running was about 8 or 9 months ago.
Avatar n tn and the heart is no longer enlarged. Initially I was advised against exercise, but at a later point was allowed to run a half marathon. On my last visit to the cardiologist he advised I just exercise aerobically (which is about 147bpm for my age), and that I avoid competitive sport. Having been involved in competitive sport for most of my life this came as a blow to me. I am confused as to what my limits should be.
Avatar n tn I don't feel stressed and why does it come on when I exercise or do heavy work? Isn't exercise supposed to relieve stress? I don't know if I am making it worse by plowing through or if that is the best thing to do.
Avatar f tn I've read articles about lactic acid buildup causing breakouts after exercise. I've also heard about exercise raising androgen levels which may cause acne. Could one of these be the culprit to my acne, or could it be something else? And what can I do to stop getting this acne without sacrificing exercise? Thanks for your help.
535822 tn?1443980380 Many people find the labels and terms used by psychologists and psychiatrists confusing, to say the least, and often not particularly helpful in finding the root cause of their depression. Eating the correct foods may help to counter depression in certain cases. Depression often, but not always, is linked to low blood pressure, low blood sugar, low thyroid functions and/or low adrenal gland function.
4190741 tn?1370181432 YOGA is a science of immortality. Yoga is a science of immortality. It contains the methods for becoming fully aware of the mysterious aspects of being human. It contains the methods for becoming fully aware of the mysterious aspects of being human. It allows for the employment of all the hidden potentialities within ourselves, for elimination of limitations due to ego, for deepening of self-knowledge; and reaching immortality.
Avatar f tn It is clear that your muscles and your body is trying to tell you something. Le me give you a little heads up regarding exercise science and how your body and brain connect to each other: Motor circuits are the networks of nerve cell connections that enable us to perform a full range of daily movements from tying up a knot to walking or moving in a specific way. However these networks require precise information from the sensory neurons located in our muscles, soft tissues.
Avatar m tn I'm more for the old fashioned way through diet and exercise. If you don't change that, all the gat removal procedures in the world don't work because your lifestyle will take over again. How much do you want to spend? It's also worth noting that the most info you will ever find on this procedure are from the 85,000 plastic surgery doctors that want to make money off of it. I'd research who is good to go in your area if you are considering it and set up a consultation.
Avatar f tn Thanks!!! I am actually surprised that I wasn't emotional. The first time I miscarried and had to go in a few weeks later I was struggling to not bawl my eyes out (he was also the doctor I had during my first miscarriage). I don't know why it was easier. DH was having a bad day so maybe I was just countering that by having a good one. It feels good to not be sad, though. ashiepooh- I got pregnant the first try, after the first cycle with my last miscarriage.
Avatar m tn This study, conducted at University Science Malaysia, Penang, recruited 87 untreated hypercholesterolemic adults diagnosed with NAFLD by ultrasound. Subjects were randomized into two groups. Over the study period of one year, the control group of 44 subjects and tocotrienols group of 43 subjects were given 200mg twice a day of placebo or mixed tocotrienols softgels (Tocomin SupraBio®), respectively.
Avatar f tn with chronic pain, in the sense that I am still willing to exercise - hard or moderate - while knowing a bucket of pain descends upon me as a consequence, fading only slowly within a few hours of ceasing the exercise.
Avatar dr m tn Over the years, I've noticed that there are many terms used very loosely in the health-related medical fields, such as words like naturopathic, chiroprathic, osteopathic, and allopathic. Sometimes these words are used interchangeably, and other times they are used inappropriately. Hopefully, I can clear up some of the confusion surrounding these terms, as well as to give you some guidance as to who to go to when you have particular healthcare needs.
Avatar f tn If that were so, diagnosing MS would be a slam dunk. As it is, 10 to 15% of LPs come out clean in terms of MS. In your shoes I'd definitely start on an MS med. Why wait until you could have a serious disability? But Copaxone is only one--there are 9 others, including several kinds in pill form. I used to have to inject, and am much happier with an oral med. Are you being seen by a true MS specialist?
734343 tn?1239605341 We need to start describing diseases in terms of their root causes, not in terms of their arcane, biochemical actions. When someone suffers from seasonal affective disorder or clinical depression, for example, let's call it what it is: Sunlight Deficiency Disorder (SDD). To treat it, the person simply needs to get more sunlight. This isn't rocket science, it's not complex, and it doesn't require a prescription.
456205 tn?1206047749 Also, an eliptical exercise machine set to high resistances will accomplish the same. The less I exercise, the worse the pain. When I force myself to exercise, even with pain, the better I do, the less the pain becomes. Try this...
748543 tn?1463449675 Dental Occlusion must be synchronized with healthy Mandibular Function as it relates to a healthy head position and by extension a healthy posture. So why are teeth/occlusion so important for posture? In simple terms incorrect posture is due to a twisted spine, which barring accidents or skeletal abnormalities- like a short leg, is due to an incorrect position of the skull.
Avatar m tn I've found it not uncommon for different dermatologists to differ in their diagnosis, as sometimes it's more of an art than science when more than one condition presents. For this reason, you may want to get a second consult (I saw 3-5 derms eventually). Did they do a biopsy? Scrape and check for fungus? Does the sun aggravate, help, or is neutral for your condition? (Rosacea often flares from the sun.) As to treatment, as stated, Elidel is often prescribed for all three conditions.
Avatar m tn Exercises depletes oxygen in the body which is why we breathe heavily during exercise. During exercise body literally is starving of oxygen. So ask yourself why is it that exercise helps PATM. If your claim is true, then exercise should make PATM worse or kill us, but it’s the opposite. Also know when we do a health test most doctors run arterial blood gas (ABG) which examines the concentration of oxygen and CO2. None of us has been diagnosed so far with a low oxygen blood concentration.
370801 tn?1264408618 Fact is over the past few months I have had to come to terms with the fact that I have this thing, this condition and it kind of makes me sick to see it happening and scared to know I can't control it fully. Thankfully for now I feel like I can still see beyond this disease and it's effects and ways of thinking to see that I am not well. This is what keeps me going and trying to look for solutions but I am tired. I am scared I will get worse - even though I am trying hard to get better.
Avatar f tn I strongly recommend meditation, tai chi, Qi gong, exercise, healthy eating, relaxing and all round happiness even though it can be hard. This will help your body to get back to normal. IF THINGS GET HARD CRY! crying is so good. release unwanted energy through your tears, let it all go. My recovery has been great! i feel much better. TREATMENT: EDUCATE YOURSELF, AWARENESS, AWARENESS, AWARENESS.
Avatar m tn I am a PhD student in social sciences, I have more than 10 international publications and shocked with the progress of medicine science, especially in HIV field. I received a very brief oral sex 1 month ago in London. I visited three different health centers. First doctor told me that there is no risk and no need for testing for your sexual exposure.

"The company said it was moving the operation to Shanghai. ...Pfizer is struggling to open the Chinese facility and has largely abandoned antibiotics." It turns out that drugs for erectile dysfunction, baldness or cholesterol are ten times more profitable than antibiotics.

428506 tn?1296560999 The panel erred in turning its back on these impressive submissions in favor of continued reliance on studies and conclusions that have been soundly criticized for their own shortcomings and biases. There is no justification for relying on flawed science for continuing its recommended guidelines and arming insurance companies to deny health benefits to insured Lyme victims.
Avatar f tn So what you want to do is eat a lot of organic vegetables every day to get those antioxidants, and eat plenty of the right kind of fats. Since your HDL is pretty good, you're probably already doing that. And exercise is important, bodies are made to move and we're very sedentary now in our daily lives.
1741766 tn?1311041360 On the other hand, one must view intellectual exercises in terms of alternatives sacrified. An hour spent on math, for example, is an hour not spent on learning chemistry, or medicine. Or even in good, vigorous exercise or sports. Then there is the importance of human interaction. There are only so many "good" hours available in a day or a week.
Avatar n tn since i thrash about i decided to put it in each sock and still had good results. it certainly cant hurt. exercise also helps. when i started stair climbing the cramps totally disappeared. i go up and down as much as possible. i live in 12 floor building so i just go up and down for as long as possible. cant do so well on treatment so i break up into 10 minute treks. leg cramps can be very nasty and ruin restorative sleep. i used to take quinine pills but i was concerned when i read about sx.
Avatar f tn ) but I can identify with you in terms of having a lot of brain lesions and two or three spinal cord lesions. The report for my 2003 MRI identified 60-70 T2 (hyperintense) brain lesions of which 15-20 were also T1 hypointense (low signal). The lesions on my spinal cord are at C4/C5 and T2. (My neurologist does MS research and has no doubt about my diagnosis of MS.
Avatar f tn I think before you even think of having a kid you have to be stable, and work really hard at the self management aspects like eating right, going to therapy, exercise, etc. And realise that all Mom's aren't perfect and the most important thing is to ensure your kids know they are loved. Whether to med or not med is a hard choice. There are risks either way. A depressed mom to be usually has a low weight baby and can deliver early.
