Health & Fitness: Body, Mind, & Soul (Spirit) Exercises

what is mind-body exercise? by Shirley Archer, JD, MA on Jun 01, 2004 ideafit.com
“…A Little History

The term mind-body exercise comes to the fitness industry from the field of mind-body medicine. According to the Mind/Body Medical Institute in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, mind-body medicine is based on the “inseparable connection between the mind and body—the complicated interactions that take place between thoughts, body and the outside world.” ..”

The Benefits of Mind Body Exercise
Posted on May 7, 2017 trifocusfitnessacademy.co.za
“..The Power of Mind Body Exercise

Although every kind of exercise or physical activity will most definitely help improve your mental health and well-being, there are certain kinds of physical activity that focus more on the mind and body than others. A weight training, swimming, running or cycling session is definitely beneficial to your overall physical and mental health. However activities like Yoga and tai chi are more aimed at exercising the mind and improving your mental health…”

Mind-Body Exercises & Heart Health my.clevelandclinic.org
“..The mind-body connection means that you can learn to use your thoughts to positively influence some of your body’s physical responses, thereby decreasing stress. If you recall a time when you were happy, grateful or calm, your body and mind tend to relax.

Research has shown that when you imagine an experience, you often have similar mental and physical responses to those you have when the event actually happens. For example, if you recall an upsetting or frightening experience, you may feel your heart beating faster, you may begin to sweat, and your hands may become cold and clammy.

Whether you have been diagnosed with an illness or need to prepare for a medical procedure such as surgery, it is very important to minimize the negative effects and maximize the healthy, healing aspects of your mind-body connection.

A variety of calming and empowering mind-body exercises have been proven to help people:..”

Should Christian’s do Tai Chi? September 22, 2012 by bonlou hatchcreek.com
“..I believe the Holy Spirit made me uncomfortable with the idea, so I decided to look into what Tai Chi really is. I needed to make a decision based on more than just what the pretty flier told me and the enthusiasm of my friends. So, I did some research which I will share with you…

though it’s often called a “moving meditation” since the movements are done slowly and deliberately, and it is taught more as a meditative and health-enhancing practice than as a martial art. ..

There is no supreme God or Creator in Taoism; all originated from the Tao, which is an impersonal principle or source of creation…

It is easy to follow the crowd, but we are to test the spirits to see if they are from God. Well, I can see from my research that the spirit in Tai Chi is not from God. It is anti-Christian. Therefore, I should not get involved.

1 John 4:1 NASB Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

6 Reasons This Popular Meditation Trend Is Dangerous for Christians 6:00AM EDT 7/18/2016 Rosilind Jukic charismanews.com
“..How to engage in biblical meditation

The Lord spoke to Joshua and said this:

This Book of the Law must not depart from your mouth. Meditate on it day and night, that you may act carefully according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way successful, and you will be wise. Have not I commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” (Josh. 1:8-9).

The Hebrew word for meditate used here is hagah, meaning to speak, mutter, muse, imagine or plot.

Biblical meditation is the repeated speaking of the Word of God. It also involves imagining and using the mind to plan ways that we can implement the Word of God in our lives.

You do this by taking a passage of the Word and repeating it over to yourself, examining each word and imagining how it applies to your personal life.

As we begin to make biblical meditation a part of our daily Christian discipline, speaking, muttering the Word of God and imagining how we can mold our lives in concordance with it, we will see our lives transformed and the Lord promises that our “way will prosperous” and that we will “have good success.”

Do we believe the Word in this?..”

Bad karma: When yoga harms instead of heals By Jennifer Wolff Perrine updated 7/15/2008 8:34:49 AM ET nbcnews.com
Inexperienced teachers and overeager students behind rise in injuries
“..Years of hunching over my computer had left me stiff, almost breakable. One false move — getting out of bed too quickly, tying my shoe — could lay me flat on a heating pad for days. Friends and family commented that my shoulders were rounding, my back curving, my chin protruding beyond my chest. Sometimes I’d see little old ladies hobbled over canes, their tiny bodies twisted and contorted, and I’d wonder, Will that be me?..

“In my practice, I’ve seen a significant increase in yoga injuries in the past five years,” says orthopedic surgeon Jeffrey Halbrecht, M.D., medical director for the Institute for Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine in San Francisco and a specialist in knee and hip problems. And it’s not only those in the recent wave of newbies who are getting hurt, Dr. Halbrecht says: “I’ve treated more experienced yogis than rookies.”..”
Yoga Injuries and Pain During Yoga Class – What’s the Story?
February 3, 2014 by Kara-Leah Grant theyogalunchbox.co.nz
“.. started yoga already injured, and with limited mobility. I’d already had one spinal fusion, and was on a fast track to a second – I had intense sciatic pain down my right leg, half of my right foot was numb and I was walking with a limp.

Within a year or so of starting yoga – a mixture of Bikram and Vinyasa – my symptoms had largely disappeared, although it took several years to regain full feeling back in my foot. It seemed yoga had healed me, where nothing else had worked.

The last year though, things have been different.

Eighteen months ago, carrying my 2.5 year old on my hip while doing a tour of Anahata Yoga Retreat – up and down uneven tracks – I aggravated my sciatic for the first time in years.

Since then, I’ve done about twenty Bikram Yoga classes and I have been in pain through all of them. I start the class pain free, but by the time we’re into the first posture – Half-Moon sidebends, back bend and forward bend – I’m in agony.

This is in contrast to my home practice where I’ve mostly been pain-free…”
Facing my fear: I used yoga to cope. Then an injury took away my lifeline Chrissy Auger Friday 3 June 2016 06.30 EDT theguardian.com
“..Yoga is admittedly self-serving, and westernized yoga is sometimes plagued with contradictions, like people meditating in $100 leggings, posing for sexy pictures instead of sinking into poses, and quietly competing to be the best at stretching. But since I wasn’t into any of that, I thought my practice was relatively pure, and that I was doing yoga for the right reasons: to gain clarity, strength and flexibility. I wanted to be mentally healthy and physically independent, and until recently, I was…

..but I didn’t realize in the moment that accepting a yoga challenge meant pushing myself there, too. Instead of accomplishing a goal I didn’t care about, I got hurt doing the thing I loved the most.

I still needed to balance against the wall to stay upright, so the day that I slipped, either from poor form or my ponytail, I didn’t exactly fall over. But when my weight came crashing down upon my head, my entire body started shaking, and I immediately knew something was terribly wrong. My instructor, who is also my friend, brushed it off, saying I would eventually be able to do the pose.

Instead, my entire world was turned upside down.

I went to see a spine surgeon, who gave me painkillers and a referral for an MRI. He was about my age, and during that first visit, we kidded around and called each other doctor, joking about my PhD. ..

It’s a simple yet powerful approach that offers the opportunity to take charge of one’s own learning and healing process, because it’s not a series of passive treatments but an active exploration that changes the way one thinks and responds in activity. It produces a skill set that can be applied in every situation. Lessons leave one feeling lighter, freer, and more grounded.” ..”

Christian Meditation

The scientific benefits of mediation are great but here’s where worldly mediation and Christian mediation differ, the focus. Christian meditation is essentially a form of prayer in which you ponder and reflect upon the revelations of God. Rick Warren, in The Purpose Driven Life describes meditation as “focused thinking”. God wants us to mediate on His Word day and night so therein lays the focus. If you are dealing with anxiety meditate upon 1 Peter 5:7 (NIV), “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” And just like prayer you can mediate anywhere. Mediation is even valuable during exercise. For example, you can turn your fitness routine into a moving mediation by focusing on 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body.”..”

Sweating

Sweat Is Cool humankinetics.com
“..Sweating does for humans what panting does for dogs, but sweating does it better. Sweating is an effective way to stay safely cool in hot environments. That simple fact explains why humans are better than most animals at being physically active in the heat for prolonged periods. Animals that do not sweat cannot pant fast enough to keep up with the heat production of exercise. In humans, when body temperature increases slightly above normal resting temperature (98.6 ℉, or 37 ℃), the hypothalamus in the brain senses the increase in temperature and signals the sympathetic nervous system to dilate blood vessels in the skin and activate sweat glands. (See figure 10.3.)..”

Why do we sweat.mp4

The Science of Sweat By Tim Newcomb Dec 7, 2016 popularmechanics.com
From nerves to exercise, this is sweat’s cool factor.
“..When your body starts to heat up, whether it’s because of exercise, work, or outside temperature, your brain reacts by releasing sweat from the more than 2.5 million eccrine glands spread out across nearly all of your body, pouring liquid through pores to lower your body temperature. But when sweat simply drips off you and hits the floor, it can’t lower your body temperature. To reap the cooling effect of sweat, though, that salty liquid must evaporate off the skin and turn into a gas, says William Byrnes, a sweat expert at the University of Colorado…”

Sweat isn’t triggered by heart rate or movement, but by receptors in the hypothalamus area of the brain. Individuals living in hot and humid environments will adapt to the weather, just as people aerobically trained will sweat more and sooner. The body welcomes “adaptions that help us with heat regulation,” Byrnes explains.

Because the stink of sweat doesn’t come from the odorless, colorless liquid the body produces in an effort to cool the skin, but rather from contact with bacteria present on the body, we have to combat it from all angles. With this bacteria concentrated in the armpit, applying a powerful deodorant to that specific area, instead of rubbing it all over, proves the most effective way to combat B.O…”

Though they may not leave much to the imagination, a pair of tights must be in your running wardrobe. Period. Because just like the upper body, you want a compression layer touching the skin that can easily wick away sweat. Under Armour’s ColdGear Action Leggings are a modest set of tights made from nylon, polyester, and elastane, and paired with some synthetic underwear, they’ll keep you cool and dry. Trust us, if there’s one part of the body you want to keep comfortable on a freezing run, it’s your, lower body. Your girlfriend/wife will thank you. ($50, underarmour.com)

Wool Socks

Running in the right sock (or wrong sock) can make all the difference in your winter workout. You want a moisture-wicking sock that’s thick and warm enough to prevent frostbitten toes, but that isn’t too bulky to cram into your shoe. The Smartwool PhD Toe Sock Mini controls the temperature in your feet and blocks the bacteria that make them reek. Its individual toes are intended to prevent blisters, and even though they’re partially made of merino wool, these socks won’t itch—promise. They cover the balls of your feet to ensure there isn’t a slit …”

Are You Wearing the Right Shoes For Your Workout? by Amber Long on October 27, 2015 acefitness.org
“..If you participate in a specific sport or activity more than two times per week, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) recommends wearing a sport-specific shoe. This means you might need different shoes for different activities. Here are some recommendations on shoes for popular fitness modes…

For those who do not log miles, replace shoes every six months if you work out most days, or every year if you exercise a couple of times per week. You can extend the life of your fitness shoes by using them only when you exercise. Purchase a casual pair of sneakers to jet around town. This will prevent wear and tear from standing or walking and allow you to look forward to lacing up for exercise.”

Proper Fit Explained: You Don’t Have a Shoe Size; You Have a Foot Size 12 November 2011 naturalrunningcenter.com
“..A proper fit accounts for the natural expansion of the foot upon ground contact. Excess waste is eliminated, along with everything that inhibits your foot’s natural motion. So your foot is free to move and work the way nature intended it to; the way of its own barefoot motion. Call it toe wiggle freedom.

Yet, with sizing, most get it wrong

First, abandon the notion that you have a shoe size. Instead you have a foot size. Shoes are made all over the world and apply different shapes and standards. If you measure your foot seated with a traditional measuring device like a Brannock Device and base your size on that you will likely be off by 1-2 sizes when applied to a running or hiking shoe. One shoe size is only 1/3 an inch.

Here’s why most sizes are too small:

When a load is applied to a foot by running or with a pack weight your foot will spread in length by up to half an inch

You need at least an 1/8 inch or more space on heel and toe for any sock.

You want 1/3 to 1/2 an inch in front of your big toe to allow room for loading and splay

Your foot will splay 15 percent in width under load.

Your foot is widest at the toes and unfortunately most shoes are not shaped this way.

Tips on sizing.

At Two Rivers Treads, we never had a customer return shoes because they too were too big.

Do not assume you are the same size as a previous shoe.

Take your time and try several shoes on, preferably at the end of the day. Go run in them. Do not try them on sitting…”

Foods that make your sweat smell bodyandsoul.com.au
“..
Humans have two types of sweat glands – eccrine glands and apocrine glands.

Eccrine glands control body temperature and are concentrated on our foreheads, underarms, soles and palms. They release sweat with little odour, mostly composed of water, salt and other trace minerals such as calcium and potassium.

Apocrine glands are found mostly around the armpits, lower abdomen and genitals. Their purpose is to excrete wastes (mostly fats and proteins) from the body. Although this sweat also has little odour itself, bacteria on the skin feed on it and produce malodorous waste products such as androstenes and isovaleric acid. The process takes about 20 minutes.

Studies show that women find fresh male sweat reasonably pleasant, but the chemical compounds that result from its breakdown highly unpleasant…”

Stress

The General Adaptation Syndrome: Applications for Sports Training sports-training-adviser.com
“..In the 1930s, Hans Selye first described the General Adaptation Syndrome (GAS) as the predictable way in which the body restores itself to balance, or homeostasis, in response to stress. … Around the same time exercise physiologists began exploring adaptations taking place due to different forms of training stresses…

The General Adaptation Syndrome has three distinct stages:

The Alarm Stage, or alarm reaction stage, is the initial response when stress is first recognized. This fight or flight response is a very quick hormonal response that served to help animals survive in the face of danger since ancient times.

We might respond to narrowly missing a serious car accident in the same way. Our bodies immediately release hormones, including cortisol, adrenaline and noradrenaline to provide instant energy. Adrenaline immediately raises the blood pressure and heart rate. When the stress is removed, the body returns to normal state of homeostasis.

The Resistance Stage, or adaptation stage, occurs if the stress continues or recurs for a period of time. In this stage, the body makes adjustments in its structures or enzyme levels to give it added protection against this specific type of stress. Rest must occur in order for recovery and rebuilding to take place.

The type of training the athlete performs determines the type of protein synthesized during recovery. This is the reason for “specificity” of the adaptive response to training. A speed training session will mobilize the energy, building projects and immune responses in the cells and tissues involved in producing speed. The stimulation of these reserves during a speed training session will dictate the type of structural changes during recovery to make the cell stronger for the next speed training session.

Mobilization of the immune system strengthens the defense capacity of the body and stimulates the repair process by dismantling and rebuilding damaged cells. The immune system plays a critical role in the outcome of the response to training.

The Exhaustion Stage occurs when long-term stress is not removed. At this point the athlete becomes fatigued and irritable. The body runs out of reserve energy and stress takes its toll on the athlete’s mental, physical, and emotional abilities. When excessive long-term stress persists, as in the case of overtraining, the athlete is unable to function and is forced to take time for recovery….”

The Body’s Fuel Sources

This is an excerpt from Endurance Sports Nutrition, Third Edition by Suzanne Girard Eberle.

The Body’s Fuel Sources

Our ability to run, bicycle, ski, swim, and row hinges on the capacity of the body to extract energy from ingested food. As potential fuel sources, the carbohydrate, fat, and protein in the foods that you eat follow different metabolic paths in the body, but they all ultimately yield water, carbon dioxide, and a chemical energy called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Think of ATP molecules as high-energy compounds or batteries that store energy. Anytime you need energy—to breathe, to tie your shoes, or to cycle 100 miles (160 km)—your body uses ATP molecules. ATP, in fact, is the only molecule able to provide energy to muscle fibers to power muscle contractions. Creatine phosphate (CP), like ATP, is also stored in small amounts within cells. It’s another high-energy compound that can be rapidly mobilized to help fuel short, explosive efforts. To sustain physical activity, however, cells must constantly replenish both CP and ATP.

Our daily food choices resupply the potential energy, or fuel, that the body requires to continue to function normally. This energy takes three forms: carbohydrate, fat, and protein. (See table 2.1, Estimated Energy Stores in Humans.) The body can store some of these fuels in a form that offers muscles an immediate source of energy. Carbohydrates, such as sugar and starch, for example, are readily broken down into glucose, the body’s principal energy source. Glucose can be used immediately as fuel, or can be sent to the liver and muscles and stored as glycogen. During exercise, muscle glycogen is converted back into glucose, which only the muscle fibers can use as fuel. The liver converts its glycogen back into glucose, too; however, it’s released directly into the bloodstream to maintain your blood sugar (blood glucose) level. During exercise, your muscles pick up some of this glucose and use it in addition to their own private glycogen stores. Blood glucose also serves as the most significant source of energy for the brain, both at rest and during exercise. The body constantly uses and replenishes its glycogen stores. The carbohydrate content of your diet and the type and amount of training that you undertake influence the size of your glycogen stores…”

How Much Water Do You Really Need? Mauro Di Pasquale July 06, 2017 • 2 min read bodybuilding.com
“..So How Much Water Should You Drink

My recommendation is to drink when you’re thirsty, and if you think you should be drinking more, don’t overdo it. As far as drinking water in and around exercise, I’ve outlined a few simple guidelines that will make sure you’re well hydrated without hitting any extremes.

Within an hour or so of training, drink a few glasses of water so you start well hydrated. While training you can drink a glass or so of water for every 15 minutes you train, especially if you’re sweating it out.

However, even during times of heavy sweating don’t take in more than a quart and half of water per hour. As far as how much your daily intake of water should be, The American College of Sports Medicine that 12 quarts is the maximum amount to drink in a 24-hour period…”

How much water should you drink during a workout? By Cosmopolitan Apr 9, 2014 cosmopolitan.com

‘..Exercise under 30 minutes
No need to drink whilst exercising (unless it’s very warm), but re-hydrate with water afterwards.

Exercise from 30-60 minutes
As above, then re-hydrate post-training with a drink containing both water and CHO.

Exercise 1-3 hours
Take a sports drink with you which combines water and CHO. Sip regularly throughout the session – aim for 30-60g CHO per hour. Continue to use the same drink post-training.

Exercise 3hrs +
Choose a sports drink which combines water, CHO and some sodium/salts. Sip regularly, taking on 30-60g CHO per hour and continue to drink post-training.

Check your hydration levels
There are two effective ways to check hydration levels when exercising.

Weigh yourself both pre and post a session to see how much weight has reduced. A 1kg weight loss equates to around 1 litre of fluid and you should aim to restore levels to your original weight post-training. And check your urine colour: the darker it is, the more dehydrated you are (although if you are taking single nutrient supplements these can affect urine colour eg B vitamins can turn urine fluorescent yellow)…”

Training Movements, Not Muscles Pete McCall by Pete McCall on November 14, 2013 acefitness.org
“..Focusing on just one body part at a time would be an effective way to exercise if that was how the human body was designed to function. Human movement, however, is not a series of isolated joint actions. If you have ever watched the process of a baby learning how to roll over, crawl and eventually walk, then you have seen everything you need to know about human movement. The human body is designed to be in constant motion with all joints and muscles working together to walk and move in an upright position.

Walking, or the gait cycle, is a series of coordinated movements. The foundational patterns that comprise the gait cycle are:

1. Squatting (when both feet are on the ground) [e.g. sitting down in a chair]
2. Lunging (as one leg is planted and the other leg is swinging) [e.g. picking up something off the floor]
3. Pushing (as one arm swings forward) [ eg. pushing a heavy door]
4. Pulling (as the other arm swings backwards) [eg. opening a car door or picking up a child]
5. Rotating (when the trunk and pelvis counter rotate during leg and arm movement). [e.g. picking up something from left side at the dinner table with right hand and passing it to someone to your right)

Following a movement-based exercise program based on these patterns means that you are using all of your muscles at the same time, which can be more effective for burning calories while also training the body for how it is designed to move…”

How Common Medications May Affect Your Clients’ Exercise Programs By Lance C. Dalleck, Ph.D. acefitness.org
Prevalence of Prescribed Therapeutic Drugs


Current trends show that Americans are living longer, while the number of individuals living with chronic diseases continues to increase. In the past 100 years, life expectancy at birth in the U.S. increased from less than 50 years to more than 76 years. The U.S. Census Bureau has projected that by 2030, the number of adults 65 years of age and older will be approximately 70 million. Approximately 80 percent of individuals aged 65 years or older are living with at least one chronic health problem, and another 50 percent are living with two. Management of these chronic conditions involves numerous strategies including both lifestyle interventions (e.g., increased exercise and healthy eating) and the prescription of therapeutic drugs. Not surprisingly, the percentage of American adults taking medications for common chronic conditions (e.g., high cholesterol and/or hypertension) increases with age (Figure 1)….

2. ACE INHIBITORS

3. DIURETICS

….Modifications Required in the Exercise Program

Encourage your clients taking diuretics to unfailingly perform a gradual cool-down after all exercise sessions. It’s also a good idea to suggest your clients perform a daily weight check to ensure that the prescribed dosage of diuretic is continuing to have the desired effect (i.e., increased urine excretion-lowered plasma volume-reduced blood pressure). A sudden change in weight of a few pounds can help alert clients that something may be amiss and that they should get in touch with their physician.”

5. ORAL HYPOGLYCEMICS

…Modifications Required in the Exercise Program

The most important program modification for clients taking oral hypoglycemics is frequent monitoring of blood glucose values. Initially, this should include checking levels pre-exercise, at the mid-point of exercise and post-exercise. Once it has been established how much blood glucose values typically drop for a usual exercise session, and provided these changes in glucose levels are within an acceptable range, less-frequent monitoring will be required. It should be noted that it is not your responsibility to check blood glucose values. Rather, the client should bring his or her own glucometer and glucose strips, which are prescribed by a physician or endocrinologist….”

For example, the Specificity Principle concerns how the athlete’s body adapts to the stress placed on it. Specificity also applies to practice conditions and the environment in motor learning literature.

Regardless of the fields in which they are studied, it is most important for coaches to understand how to effectively apply them in practice and competition.

While it is important to know how to use these principles, skill learning, movement mechanics, and other areas aspects of sports performance must be integrated into the programs of athletes at their respective levels of competition. ..”

Reversing Reversibility: How to Help Clients Get Back on Track By Daniel J. Green acefitness.org

A SMART Guide to Goal Setting on November 01, 2013 acefitness.org
American Council on Exercise by American Council on Exercise
“..Follow these guidelines to setting SMART goals and you will be surprised at what you can do:

Specific. Your goal should be clear and easy to understand.
A common goal, “get healthy,” is too general. There are so many ways to get healthy. How do you want to do it? Is it losing weight? Start exercising? Stop smoking? Break it down and it will be easier to manage.
Let’s pick weight loss and make a SMART goal out of it together. For example, “I will lose weight.”

Measurable. A goal to “lose weight” is not enough. How will you track your progress and how you will know when you have reached your goal? Making your goal measurable means adding a number.

Attainable. Before you can add a number, you have to know how high or low you want to go. It’s good to ‘shoot for the stars’, but don’t be too extreme. Likewise, a goal that is too easy is also not very motivating. Only you know your limits.
Let’s take our goal above. What percentage is attainable for you? Research suggests that a 5-10% weight loss is attainable for most overweight people.

A measurable, attainable goal could be, “I will lose 7% of my body weight.”

Relevant. Set goals that are important to where you are in your life right now. Don’t set a goal that someone else is pressuring you to attain-that isn’t very motivating.
Examine our goal so far. Does it seem relevant to you? If so, let’s keep going. If you are not concerned about weight loss or this is not a good time in your life to focus on that, choose something that IS motivating to you.

Time-bound. Include an end-point. Knowing that you have a deadline motivates you to get started.
Since healthy weight loss is about 1-2 pounds per week, set your deadline accordingly. For our example we can use 3 months. “I will lose 7% of my body weight in 3 months.”

Applying Risk Classification as a Fitness Professional
Christopher Gagliardi by Christopher Gagliardi
on May 10, 2017 acefitness.org
“…Risk classification is determined based on the presence or absence of a known cardiovascular, pulmonary, renal, or metabolic disease or the presence or absence of symptoms of these diseases (see “Signs and Symptoms” below). ..

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Risk Stratification Criteria:

For each positive risk factor, add a +1.

For HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) there is an opportunity to take away a risk (-1) if the level is high (≥60 mg/dL).

Client Age: Male ≥45, Female ≥ 55
Family History: Myocardial infarction (heart attack), coronary revascularization (bypass surgery), or sudden death for the client’s male first-degree relative who is younger than 55 years old or female first-degree relative who is younger than 65 years old; first-degree relatives include parents, siblings, and offspring
Cigarette smoking: Current cigarette smoker or quit within the previous six months, or exposure to secondhand smoke
Sedentary lifestyle: Does not participate in at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on at least three days/week for at least three months (remember this by thinking of the 3’s—30 minutes, for 3 days, for 3 months)
Obesity: Client has a BMI ≥30 kg/m2
Hypertension: Blood pressure ≥140/90 mmHg or currently on antihypertensive medications; both numbers do not have to be above the defining criteria for a + 1 in this category; if either the systolic reading is ≥ 140 mmHg or the diastolic number is ≥ 90 mmHg, the client would get a +1 in this category
Cholesterol: Total cholesterol should only be used if it is the only value given; if using total, ≥200 mg/dL is considered a risk (+1)
If you are given LDL and HDL cholesterol, use these values only:
LDL (bad cholesterol) ≥130 mg/dL is a risk (+1)
HDL (good cholesterol, you want lots) <40 mg/dL is a risk (+1)
HDL (good cholesterol) ≥60 mg/dL is good, allowing an individual to take a risk away (-1)
PreDiabetes: Fasting glucose ≥100 mg/dL is a risk (+1)

The risks are then totaled and the client is classified in one of the risk categories:.."

Low risk = Asymptomatic and < 2 risk factors
Moderate risk = Asymptomatic ≥ 2 risk factors
High risk = Symptomatic (see signs and symptoms below) or if the client has a known cardiac, pulmonary, renal, or metabolic disease

What Is a Realistic BMI for Someone Athletic?
by MICHELLE MATTE Last Updated: Sep 11, 2017 livestrong.com
“…
Misclassified

Kinesiology professor Sue Beckham, PhD of the University of Texas at Arlington, asserts that BMI is not useful in assessing athletic muscular individuals and is not a good indicator of changes in body composition. A 2007 study of male and female college athletes published in “Medicine and Science in Sports and Medicine” concluded that BMI incorrectly classifies athletes with normal body fat as overweight and that separate standards should be established for athletic populations.
BMI versus FFM

Your fat free mass, or FFM, includes your muscles, bones, connective tissue and other not-fat components of your body mass. According to exercise scientist Len Kravitz, PhD of the University of New Mexico, we all need a certain amount of fat to maintain good health, and women need more than men. When you subtract your FFM from your total body mass, you get your fat mass. Body composition is a measurement that compares your fat mass to your total body mass, expressed as percent body fat…”

What is the best way to measure and monitor intensity during exercise? Viktoria Brautigam by Viktoria Brautigam on June 01, 2011 .acefitness.org

“..Another way to monitor exercise intensity is by the Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE), or Borg scale. Using the Borg scale, with values from 0 to 20, can help you monitor your cardiovascular intensity. A rating of 7 corresponds to very, very light training intensity. A rating of 12 corresponds to moderate intensity. A rating of 17 corresponds to very hard intensity. A rating of 20 corresponds to maximum all-out intensity. Notice how, as your fitness increases, your exertion level at a previously difficult intensity starts to decrease. For example, running a 10 minute/mile pace used to be a level 16 exertion level for you. Two months after exercising regularly, you notice that the same 10 minute/mile pace is only an exertion level 12. RPE is a useful way of monitoring progress and keeping intensity appropriate. It is best used when cardiovascular training is more generalized and less specific. A person most likely to benefit from using the Borg RPE scale is following a general weight loss program…”

Perceived Exertion (Borg Rating of Perceived Exertion Scale) cdc.gov
“..Look at the rating scale below while you are engaging in an activity; it ranges from 6 to 20, where 6 means “no exertion at all” and 20 means “maximal exertion.” Choose the number from below that best describes your level of exertion. This will give you a good idea of the intensity level of your activity, and you can use this information to speed up or slow down your movements to reach your desired range…”

Macrocycles, Mesocycles and Microcycles: Understanding the 3 Cycles of Periodization
April 11, 2017 By Tyrone Holmes trainingpeaks.com
“…Periodization is the process of dividing an annual training plan into specific time blocks, where each block has a particular goal and provides your body with different types of stress. This allows you to create some hard training periods and some easier periods to facilitate recovery. Periodization also helps you develop different physiological abilities during various phases of training. For instance, during base training you focus on the development of aerobic and muscular endurance. During the intensity phase, this focus switches to lactate threshold and aerobic capacity (i.e., VO2 max), and as you enter the competition phase, greater emphasis is placed on boosting anaerobic capacity and neuromuscular power…”

Periodization and the Adult Client April Merritt by April Merritt on December 13, 2010 .acefitness.org

Periodization has two primary styles – linear and undulating.

Linear periodization is what we sometimes consider a more traditional resistance training program with gradually progressive increases. Within each micro cycle the training protocols are consistent, and then after each micro cycle the training variables are adjusted. Linear programs tend to be fairly rigid in their design. ..

Is R.I.C.E. All Wrong?
by Jim Thornton9 months ago life.spartan.com
“…It’s the most famous acronym in sports medicine, a household term as familiar to athletes as the physicians who treat them: RICE, for rest, ice, compression, and elevation…

As for why keeping injured tissues moving works better than immobilizing them, the exact mechanisms await further research. “We don’t understand everything about this yet,” Reinl concedes, “but we do know that stillness is the enemy. If you remain still, everything shrinks and atrophies—your muscles, bones, ligaments, everything.”…

So if RICE is no longer the answer, what’s a better strategy for expediting your return to the field of play? Reinl, for his part, believes the answer lies in a new acronym: ARITA—active recovery is the answer.

There are exceptions, of course—you may have no choice but to immobilize a limb, say, with a compound fracture. But for most garden-variety sports injuries, Reinl suggests resisting the urge to ice away your pain and plop down on the couch for days. Instead, let your pain level be your guide and keep on moving as much or as little as your mending body allows….”

“…By way of a general guide, records should at least cover the following:

Initial assessment (most of these should be captured on a Client Information form):

client details (such as name and address of the client and details of GP);
relevant medical history including medications administered and diagnostic results;

previously injured her knee and wishes to regain fitness;
the assessment undertaken and findings, both positive and negative; and
the fitness plan and estimated cost.

Each session:

the date of each training session;
the client’s response to the last session and update on medical history e.g. any intervening incidents;
information and advice provided to the client, particularly in relation to warnings as to relevant potential adverse outcomes, and the client’s consent to training;
any new assessment undertaken and the findings;

It is important that your clinical records are just that – clinical. Do not record personal or offensive comments about the client – as a rule of thumb, if you would not say it to their face, do not write it down. A personal or offensive comment will, at the very least, be embarrassing to you if the records are required to be produced in response to a complaint and may well adversely affect the outcome of that complaint.

The Wolff’s Law On Bone Transformation And Remodeling, Part I .naturalheightgrowth.com
“..Bone is anisotropic (it has different strength and stiffness depending on the direction of the load). Bone will grow, build, adapt, transform, and remodel due to enormous stress or force. The larger the forces the shin bone sustains, the greater the osteoblast response.

For example, by sitting with 30 lb ankle weight on each leg, the ankle weight and the earth’s gravitational pull will cause your shin bone to remodel. Thus, by eating nutritional foods and taking supplements daily, your shin bone mass density begins to thicken and lengthen due to the downward force exerted by the weights & gravity…’

  • Wolff’s Law – Definition in Physical Therapy
    This is How Your Bones Heal
    By Brett Sears, PT | Reviewed by a board-certified physician
    Updated June 27, 2017 .verywell.com
    “…Definition:

    Wolff’s Law states that bone grows and remodels in response to the forces that are placed upon it. After injury to bone, placing specific stress in specific directions to the bone can help it remodel and become normal healthy bone again. Your physical therapist should understand Wolff’s law to help guide your rehabilitation after a fracture or broken bone.
    How Does Wolff’s Law Apply to Physical Therapy

    Wolff’s Law applies to physical therapy in the treatment of osteoporosis and after a fracture.

    If you have osteoporosis, your bones may be brittle and weak. This can lead to pathologic fracture, most commonly in the spine or hip. Weight-bearing and strength exercises are usually recommended as a non-medicinal treatment for osteoporosis.

    If you have suffered a fracture, bone healing occurs while you have been immobilized with a cast or splint. After immobilization, gentle range of motion and stress can help improve the overall strength of your bone. This can help ensure that your bone is able to tolerate the loads and stresses that you may encounter during normal functional activities…

    Your PT can help guide you by prescribing the right exercises for you to do that will add a gradual and progressive stress to your injured bone.

    For example, after an ankle fracture, your doctor may order that you remain non-weight bearing for a few weeks immediately after the injury. During this time, there may be some benefit of early mobilization for your ankle. Your physical therapist can prescribe safe exercises that you can do that will place gentle stress through your bone while helping you maintain mobility….”

    Two Individual Conditions With Shared Characteristics
    “..Comparing Tendinitis and Bursitis

    Broadly speaking, tendinitis and bursitis are differentiated by the types of tissue affected:

    Tendinitis refers to inflammation of the tendon, the rope-like, fibrous tissue that connects muscle to bone. When a muscle flexes or relaxes, the tendon acts like a winch and causes the bone to move. Tendons can be small, like those found in the hands and feet, or large, like the Achilles tendon.

    Bursitis is the inflammation of the fluid-filled sac, called the bursa, which acts as a cushion between bones and the tendons or muscles surrounding the bone. The bursa greatly reduces the friction as these structures regularly rub against each other. The major bursae are located adjacent to the tendons of the large joints, such as those in the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees…”

There are many types of fractures, however, the main types are described as either displaced, non-displaced, open and closed. Displaced and non-displaced fractures refer to the way the bone breaks. A very small crack in the bone is often referred to as a “hairline” fracture. This is an incomplete fracture usually resulting from a minor injury that does not go all the way through the bone. A greenstick fracture is an incomplete fracture in which the bone is bent. This fracture type is most often found in children. A transverse fracture is a simple fracture that is complete. It occurs due to the tension of the bone. Oblique fracture occurs due to a compression fracture. It is slight obliquity of the fracture. Bending fracture pattern It is part transverse and part oblique. It occurs due to bending force. Butterfly fracture pattern It occurs due to bending force and axial loading. Spiral fracture occurs due to torsion force. Comminuted fracture occurs due to high energy force. A fracture can be either closed or open. Fractures than penetrate the skin are open.

    “..Physiology of fracture healing

    Fracture healing involves complex processes of cell and tissue proliferation and differentiation. Many players are involved, including growth factors, inflammatory cytokines, antioxidants, bone breakdown (osteoclast) and bone-building (osteoblast) cells, hormones, amino acids, and uncounted nutrients.

    Fracture healing can be divided into three phases.

    The inflammation phase is the first stage of healing. Immediately upon fracture, a blood clot forms, allowing the influx of inflammatory, clean-up cells to the wound area. ..

    The second, reparative stage begins about two weeks after the fracture occurs….

    The final step of fracture repair is known as the remodeling phase…..

    5 nutritional steps to accelerate fracture healing

    People who have had a fracture aren’t often told that they can do anything to make their bones heal faster — at most, they’re told to limit the use of the injured bone or limb (not easy to do if the fracture is in your spine!). But there are a number of methods you can employ to reduce your healing time:

    1. Provide the body with adequate energy

    Fracture healing requires more energy than you might expect. Thus, it’s appropriate to increase your caloric intake to promote healing…
    <p.
    2. Check your protein intake

    Bone can be imagined as being somewhat like a sponge made of living protein upon which mineral crystals are embedded…..In addition, protein supplementation increases growth factors like insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), a polypeptide that exerts a positive effect on skeletal integrity, muscle strength, immune response, and bone renewal…

    3. Increase anti-inflammatory nutrients

    Antioxidants repair oxidative damage. When a bone fracture occurs, a remarkable yield of free radicals is generated by the damaged tissues. In particular, this damage occurs as the tightly bound collagen strands running through the mineral phase of bone are forcefully broken. …. In such cases, antioxidants — including vitamins E and C, lycopene, and alpha-lipoic acid — have been suggested to be beneficial in suppressing the destructive effect of oxidant free radicals on whole body systems and improving fracture healing in animal models and cultured human cell lines.

    Inflammation is an essential component of the healing process in bone…Vitamin C, bioflavonoids and flavonols such as quercitin and proanthrocydins, and omega-3 fatty acids naturally soothe the inflammatory process and speed healing…

    4. Boost your mineral intake

    By weight, bone is roughly 70% minerals (calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, silicon, zinc, etc.) and fracture healing requires available minerals. Most of us under-consume minerals on an everyday basis, so drawing minerals to the healing site can often involve a process of “stealing from Peter to pay Paul.” (See our 20 key bone nutrients for details on average mineral intake.)

    Specific key minerals for fracture healing include the following:

    …. Early research suggested that fractures can heal normally independent of dietary calcium and indeed it has been found that during the first few weeks of healing, calcium is drawn from the skeleton for fracture healing. After that, the diet provides the calcium necessary for fracture repair. Calcium adequacy at the RDA level is important, but unusually high intakes do not appear to speed fracture healing. As calcium absorption is dependent on vitamin D, these nutrients work synergistically. Human studies, in fact, suggest that for best fracture healing both calcium and vitamin D should be obtained in optimum daily levels. Most of us consume plenty of phosphorus and often too much if the diet is high in processed foods and colas. However, the elderly, dieters, and those on low protein diets often do not consume enough phosphorus to meet the needs of new bone formation….

    *see Health: Nutrition-Micronutrients Pt. 4~Vitamins=Trace Minerals goodnewshealthandfitness.wordpress.com

    5. Enhance vitamin intake

    …vitamins are the catalysts for many biochemical reactions and are equally important. In fracture healing, we can clearly identify the vital roles of several vitamins including vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin K as well as the energy-producing B vitamins, which should all be taken in therapeutic doses:…

    CAUSES

    Fibromyalgia Causes, healthline.com
    “..Causes of fibromyalgia

    Experts don’t know exactly what causes fibromyalgia, but a few factors might be involved:

    Abnormal pain signaling

    In people with fibromyalgia, the nervous system may not process pain signals in the usual way. Abnormal levels of chemicals in the brain, spinal cord, and nerves that carry these signals may make people more sensitive to the feeling of pain.
    Hormone imbalances

    Hormones such as serotonin, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), and dopamine help your body to process pain. Lower-than-normal levels of these hormones in the brain and nervous system may interrupt pain signals and intensify your sensitivity to them.
    Genetics

    Fibromyalgia can run in families. It’s likely that there’s an unidentified genetic abnormality that increases certain people’s risk for the condition. Certain genes may control the way the body regulates pain responses. Scientists speculate that people with fibromyalgia carry one or more genes that cause them to react strongly to stimuli that another person may not perceive as painful.
    Triggers

    For many people, symptoms begin after emotional or physical trauma, or a bout with an infectious disease. These factors do not likely cause fibromyalgia by themselves. However, they may trigger the onset in people who are already at risk for it by altering the nervous system’s response to pain.

    The following may also be fibromyalgia triggers:

    infections such as the flu
    repeated injuries
    surgery
    a traumatic life event such as a breakup, divorce, or the death of a loved one
    childbirth

    Sleep disturbances

    Problems getting enough sleep or spending enough time in the deepest stages of sleep are common in this disorder. But doctors aren’t sure if this is a symptom or a cause of fibromyalgia. Abnormal sleep patterns can affect the levels of some brain chemicals.
    ..”

    Possible Causes of Fibromyalgia fibrocenter.com
    “..Possible Fibromyalgia Causes

    Heredity. Research shows that, like many conditions, fibromyalgia is believed to run in families. So it is likely that some people are born with genes that increase their risk of getting it.

    Fibromyalgia can start at any time. But there may be some events that trigger fibromyalgia in those who have an increased risk of developing it.

    Accidents and injuries. Fibromyalgia may be triggered by an injury or trauma (for example, auto accidents and war).

    Infection. Some infections that may be linked to fibromyalgia include hepatitis C, Epstein-Barr virus, parvovirus, and Lyme disease.

    Autoimmune disorders. These disorders occur when the body’s immune system sees its own tissues as foreign and attacks them. Rheumatoid arthritis and lupus are examples of autoimmune disorders.

    You may need to see a GI specialist to help your stomach symptoms, but you can start keeping a log of the foods that seem to set you off.

    “..The Digestive System

    The reason the digestive system (referred to as the gut) is so important is because 70% of your immune system lives just under the surface of your intestinal lining, and any disruption in the beneficial bacteria – think lactobacilli and bifido bacteria, those good bugs in yogurt –or the intestinal lining, will cause immune reactions that release inflammatory molecules that travel throughout the body causing inflammation at distant sites. This is one of the core beliefs and approaches of functional medicine, supported by studies in the literature, and evidence I see every day in my practice. Fixing the gut can sometimes completely relieve pain and inflammation in the muscles and joints.

    Every patient with fibromyalgia has a comprehensive digestive stool analysis to help in the diagnosis of what might be out of balance in the digestive tract. I look for dysbiosis, an overgrowth of “bad” bacteria, yeast, and/or parasites, and I look for signs of leaky gut syndrome, a condition where there is increased permeability in the intestinal lining. These conditions can cause distant inflammation and have been implicated in fibromyalgia, arthritis, and autoimmune disease.

    Once I make a diagnosis of dysbiosis and/or leaky gut syndrome, I begin the treatment with herbs and supplements that restore health of the digestive tract. ..”

    Pain is the most prominent symptom of Fibromaylgia. It usually affects the entire body, although it may start in one area, such as the neck and shoulders, and spread to other areas over a period of time. Fibromyalgia is a form of generalized muscular pain and fatigue. The name, Fibromyalgia, means pain in the muscles and the fibrous connective tissues (the ligaments and tendons).

    You (or someone you know) may be experiencing moderate or severe fatigue with a lack of energy, decreased exercise endurance, or the kind of exhaustion that results from the flu or lack of sleep. Sometimes the fatigue is more of a problem than the pain. Headaches, especially tension and migraine headaches, are common in Fibromyalgia. Abdominal pain, bloating, alternating constipation, bladder spasms, and irritability may cause urinary urgency or frequency. Your skin and blood circulation can be sensitive to temperature changes, resulting in temporary changes in skin color.

    Have you suffered with for a few months, a few years, or too many years to mention? Some may suffer only minor symptoms, while others (perhaps you or a loved one) feel the debilitating affects of Fibromyalgia and are kept from participating in their life, making even simple daily activities almost impossible.

    “..When she was at her lowest she was plagued with permanent thoughts of suicide. She had to move back in at her parents’ place, as she could no longer live by herself anymore. That’s when she started crying out to God and wanted to get in touch with her friend Claudia again. A couple of weeks after being back at her parents place she bumped into Claudia, who then eventually invited her for to come along to a church meeting. This was where I met Rebecca for the first time. Rebecca told us how much at home she felt with us and due to her sickness it was another few weeks before she could come again. During this meeting we talked about the power of God and that God wants people to be healthy and expects his followers to pray for the sick. We read many scriptures like MARK 16:15-20, ISAIAH 53:5, MATTHEW 4:23, and HEBREWS 13:8 and explained them.
    The power of God healed her from EVERYTHING!

    Many people received prayer in that meeting and Rebecca asked for prayer for her glossopharyngeal neuralgia she suffered from. We laid hands on her and prayed in Jesus’ name (MARK 16:18). She was initially still in pain, as if somebody stabbed through her ear, but the moment she stepped outside as she left the meeting the pain completely went; for the first time in 3.5 years and to this day the pain has never come back. She realised that God is real and came back the following week, despite her parents threatening her to chuck her out if she went again. We happened to have a prayer night that Friday and led Rebecca through the Scriptures about how to be saved. We looked at Scriptures concerning baptism by immersion and Rebecca then asked to be baptized, which we did straight away in the upstairs bathtub . Afterwards we looked at some Scriptures about receiving the Holy Spirit (ACTS 2:4, LUKE 11:13), and we then laid hands on her and asked God to fill her with the Holy Spirit.

    CAUSES

    Types, Causes and Treatment hearingloss.org
    “.. Three Types of Hearing Loss

    Conductive hearing loss – when hearing loss is due to problems with the ear canal, ear drum, or middle ear and its little bones (the malleus, incus, and stapes).
    Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) – when hearing loss is due to problems of the inner ear, also known as nerve-related hearing loss.
    Mixed hearing loss – refers to a combination of conductive and sensorineural hearing loss. This means that there may be damage in the outer or middle ear and in the inner ear (cochlea) or auditory nerve.

    Conductive Hearing Loss
    Causes:

    Malformation of outer ear, ear canal, or middle ear structures
    Fluid in the middle ear from colds
    Ear infection (otitis media – an infection of the middle ear in which an accumulation of fluid may interfere with the movement of the eardrum and ossicles
    Allergies
    Poor Eustachian tube function

    Add These 5 Nutrients to Your Diet to Save Your Hearing-
    In All Health Watch, Anti-Aging, Diet and Nutrition,
    Featured Article by INH ResearchDecember 20, 20132 Comments institutefornaturalhealing.com
    “..Thankfully, there are safe and natural ways to start boosting your hearing right away. Here are 5 nutrients you can add to your diet to take control of your hearing….

    1. Zinc: You may know it as the mineral that can boost your immune system and support prostate health. But it’s also a great way to help keep your hearing at its best. ..

    You can get it from shellfish like oysters. But you can also get it from eggs, nuts, and pumpkin seeds. Or, of course, from a quality supplement.

    2. Resveratrol: This antioxidant supports heart health and a longer life. It’s also a good excuse to enjoy a glass of red wine with dinner. But a surprising benefit is that it may actually help restore your hearing….

    You can get resveratrol from red wine and from grapes. You can also find it in supplement form at most health food stores.
    3. N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC): It can reduce oxidative stress from exercise, replenish glutathione levels, and even prevent cancer from developing.4 And it’s this oxidative stress protection that makes it a great way to keep your hearing intact..


    <p<
    Since NAC does not naturally occur in foods, you have to take this one as a supplement if you want to help your hearing. But if you eat poultry or yogurt, you can get a good amount of cysteine. Your body can use this to make NAC.7

    4. Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Omega-3s fight inflammation and prevent heart disease. But these healthful fats are also shown to help prevent hearing loss…

    Of course, you can get these fatty acids from wild caught cold water fish like salmon. But you can also take it as a supplement. We recommend krill oil because it can cross the blood-brain barrier without the help of other fats.

    5. Vitamin A: This vitamin helps maintain a strong immune system. It’s essential for reproductive health and clear vision. But it also plays a role in the quality of your hearing as you get older.

    TREATMENTS

    Ear, nose, and throat specialists will sometimes recommend up to vitamins for hearing loss300 milligrams of niacin (vitamin B3) to increase blood flow to the microcapillaries of the inner ear, which feed the auditory nerve. Taking niacin can cause a heat flush lasting for about 30 minutes.
    N-acetylcysteine (NAC; 500 milligrams) may help prevent hearing loss-this is especially useful for people who are constantly exposed to loud noise.
    Taking folate (folic acid; 400 micrograms) on a daily basis has been shown to slow hearing loss.[1][2]
    Carotenoids (1,000 milligrams) and vitamins A (200 IU), C (1,000 milligrams), and E (800 IU) can reduce the risk of noise-induced hearing loss.

    “..Age-related hearing loss may be retrievable, according to Dr. Jonathan Wright, MD, medical director of the Tahoma Clinic in Washington.

    By supplementing three patients with the bioidentical hormone aldosterone, all of the men — who were either losing their hearing or who had lost a lot of their hearing — were able to regain much of what had been lost.

    In one case, an 87-year-old man who was diagnosed with hearing loss in 1994 was found to have low aldosterone levels. After six weeks of taking aldosterone, the man visited his audiologist and found that his hearing had increased 30-50 decibels in one ear, and 20-30 in the other. His ability to discriminate words from a noisy background also increased significantly.

    An animal study has also suggested that the hormone aldosterone was able to restore hearing.

    This process of using bioidentical hormones to restore hearing is actively going on at the Tahoma Clinic, which is presently the first and only place in the United States that is using aldosterone to restore hearing…

    Other studies have showed that a combination of vitamins A, C, and E, as well as magnesium, can protect your hearing.

    Deaf Muslim Healed in Jesus’ Name!


    “Published on Nov 9, 2013

    This is raw video footage (with subtitles) of a miracle that just happened a few minutes ago (11/9/13) at the Christ for all Nations Gospel Campaign in Accra, Ghana.

    A man stood before me trembling and overcome with emotion. He had a look of shock on his face. “My name is Mohammed,” he said, and he proceeded to tell me his story. He had been deaf for almost two years. He was a Muslim and didn’t even intend on coming tonight. He had just arrived in town from another city by train and ventured into the city center (Independence square — where our campaign is being held). He could not understand anything that was going on so he lied down and went to sleep, and when he woke up, he could hear!

    I asked him if he knew who had healed him and he said it is “the messenger of the Almighty God…Jesus.” The whole thing was so raw and fresh. I could see he was struggling to come to terms with what he had just realized. “Jesus is, Jesus is…he is a God,” he said, as though the thought had just occurred to him. He said, even the Koran says if you do not believe in Jesus Christ you are not a good Muslim. He seemed to be trying to justify this to himself. But I wanted to make it clear for the thousands watching this unfold, “Jesus is not just a messenger,” I said, “He is the Son of the living God. He is the way, the truth and the life…”

    By the end of our conversation, he seemed to be settled and completely sure. He said that his wife did not yet know what had happened to him, so he announced the name of the city where he lives and said, “Tell my wife, Jesus is the Son of God!” I wish you could have seen the crowd. No football team has ever received such enthusiasm — they were jumping and dancing and shouting with joy unspeakable and full of glory. It is a moment I will never forget.”

    There are now 3 major groups of seizures.

    Generalized onset seizures: These seizures affect both sides of the brain or groups of cells on both sides of the brain at the same time. This term was used before and still includes seizures types like tonic-clonic, absence, or atonic to name a few.
    Focal onset seizures: The term focal is used instead of partial to be more accurate when talking about where seizures begin. Focal seizures can start in one area or group of cells in one side of the brain.
    Focal Onset Aware Seizures: When a person is awake and aware during a seizure, it’s called a focal aware seizure. This used to be called a simple partial seizure.
    Focal Onset Impaired Awareness: When a person is confused or their awareness is affected in some way during a focal seizure, it’s called a focal impaired awareness seizure. This used to be called a complex partial seizure.
    Unknown onset seizures: When the beginning of a seizure is not known, it’s now called an unknown onset seizure. A seizure could also be called an unknown onset if it’s not witnessed or seen by anyone, for example when seizures happen at night or in a person who lives alone.

    Causes of epilepsy
    nhs.uk

    In over half of epilepsy cases, a cause cannot be found. If there is an identifiable cause, it usually involves the brain being affected by a condition.

    The brain is a delicate mix of nerve cells, electrical impulses and chemicals, known as neurotransmitters. Any damage has the potential to disrupt the workings of the brain and cause seizures.

    There are two main categories of epilepsy:

    idiopathic (or primary) epilepsy – where no apparent cause for epilepsy can be found, but there may be a family history, suggesting that the condition is inherited
    symptomatic (or secondary) epilepsy – where there is a known cause for a person’s epilepsy ..”

    What Causes Epilepsy in Children?
    Source: Society for Neuroscience
    brainfacts.org
    “.. For example, sometimes brain damage due to trauma, such as lack of oxygen to the brain at birth or a severe brain infection, can lead to epilepsy.

    “Children that are born prematurely or have very difficult births can have brain injuries that cause seizures during the first weeks of life,” says Paul Carney, a pediatric neurologist at the University of Florida. “The good news is that a lot of these children that have mild brain injury will outgrow their seizures in the first month. However, a small percentage will unfortunately go on to develop difficult-to-treat seizures that can be lifelong.”

    Another cause of pediatric epilepsy is abnormal development of the brain, possibly due to maternal exposure to toxins, trauma, or an underlying genetic condition. When a genetic problem affects how the brain is formed or functions, seizures may be a visible indicator of other problems. “Seizures can be the tip of the iceberg of a serious brain disorder,” Baram says.

    However, sometimes the cause of pediatric seizures is unknown. Because there is no one cause of pediatric epilepsy, there is no single prognosis. In general, 50 to 75 percent of children with epilepsy will eventually have complete seizure remission. Remission is more likely if there are no underlying neurological deficits present, seizure frequency is low, and response to anti-seizure medication is good…”

    Steve Wolf MD: Now you mentioned the brain not developing properly, and sometimes we use the word “cortical dysplasia” or “migration defects.” This is when the brain, when it’s forming inside the mother’s belly, that the brain just doesn’t form properly and leaves an island of abnormal cells that can cause short circuits…”

    “…Vitamin B-6

    Vitamin B-6 is used to treat a rare form of epilepsy known as pyridoxine-dependent seizures. This type of epilepsy usually develops in the womb or soon after birth. It’s caused by your body’s inability to metabolize vitamin B-6 properly.

    Although the evidence is promising, more research is need to determine whether vitamin B-6 supplementation benefits people with other types of epilepsy.
    Magnesium

    Severe magnesium deficiency may increase seizure risk. Older research suggests magnesium supplementation may reduce seizures. A 2012 hypothesis published in Epilepsy Research supports this theory. Researchers indicate that randomized, controlled trials are needed to better understand magnesium’s potential effects on epilepsy.

    Vitamin E

    Some people with epilepsy may also have a vitamin E deficiency. A 2016 study found that vitamin E increases antioxidant abilities. This research also suggested it helps decrease seizures in people with epilepsy whose symptoms aren’t controlled by conventional drugs. The study concluded vitamin E may be safe to take with traditional medicines for epilepsy. More research is needed, however.
    Other vitamins

    Medication used to treat epilepsy may also cause biotin or vitamin D deficiency, and worsen your symptoms. In these cases, your doctor may recommend vitamins to help manage your condition…

Some supplements can even be as powerful as conventional drugs. Be sure to consult your doctor before adding any herbs or supplements to your regimen..

    Natural Approaches For Treating Epilepsy Written by Thomas Corriher Category: Report Published: January 28, 2010 healthwyze.org
    “…The Causes and Cures of Epilepsy

    Epileptic seizures can be triggered by many additives that are in processed foods. Aspartame is known to induce seizures. Two main constituents of aspartame include phenylalanine and aspartic acid. Aspartic acid is an excitotoxin, which means that it over-excites nerves, causing them to literally burn-out and die. Phenylalanine is a known neurotoxin, so aspartame should be avoided by all individuals. Beware whenever you see “sugar-free” on a package.

    Zinc deficiency has been shown to cause seizures. A study that was published in 1990, entitled, Effects of dietary zinc status on seizure susceptibility and hippocampal zinc content in the El (epilepsy) mouse, showed that zinc deficiency caused seizures, and this could be quickly corrected with adequate zinc supplementation. Many epilepsy sufferers have noted significant improvements in their condition with zinc intake.

    Magnesium is a vital component of epilepsy recovery, and many believe that magnesium deficiency is the root cause of epileptic seizures. Lots of people choose to supplement with magnesium using Epsom salt (magnesium sulphate). While this is an option, impurities may be present in Epsom salt, because it is not meant for oral consumption. Some companies are dedicated to selling completely pure food grade Epsom salt. We cannot attest to the integrity of any of these companies. If Epsom salt is used, then the ideal dosage is about 1/2 a teaspoon each morning. Otherwise, magnesium supplements are available from health food stores. Food sources of magnesium include almonds, cashews, peanuts, halibut fish, and spinach. Studies have verified a link between magnesium deficiency and epilepsy. However, excessive supplementation with magnesium will cause other important minerals to flush out of the body to ironically cause even more nutritional deficiencies. So, the wisest approach is to fix the nutritional problems with diet, if possible…

    Radiation from sources such as the new generation of high-frequency televisions, energy efficient lights, microwaves, video game systems, radio towers, and cellular towers can trigger severe seizures.”
