“..cause of Parkinson’s disease is still unknown, although there is some evidence for the role of genetics, environmental factors, or a combination of both. It is also possible that there may be more than one cause of the disease.

Overview

Parkinson’s disease is a chronic disorder of the nervous system. It affects at least 500,000 people in the United States, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Approximately 60,000 new cases are reported in the United States each year.

This disease isn’t fatal, but it can cause debilitating symptoms that impact everyday movement and mobility. Hallmark symptoms of this disease include tremors and gait and balance problems. These symptoms develop because the brain’s ability to communicate is damaged.

Researchers aren’t yet certain what causes Parkinson’s. There are several factors that may contribute to the disease.
1. Genetics

Some studies suggest that genes play a role in the development of Parkinson’s. An estimated 15 percent of people with Parkinson’s have a family history of the condition.

The Mayo Clinic reports that someone with a close relative (e.g., a parent or sibling) who has Parkinson’s is at an increased risk of developing the disease. It also reports that the risk of developing Parkinson’s is low unless you have several family members with the disease.

How does genetics factor into Parkinson’s in some families? According to Genetics Home Reference, one possible way is through the mutation of genes responsible for producing dopamine and certain proteins essential for brain function.
2. Environment

There’s also some evidence that one’s environment can play a role. Exposure to certain chemicals has been suggested as a possible link to Parkinson’s disease. These include pesticides such as insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides. It’s also possible that Agent Orange exposure may be linked to Parkinson’s.

Parkinson’s has also been potentially linked to drinking well water and consuming manganese.

Not everyone exposed to these environmental factors develops Parkinson’s. Some researchers suspect that a combination of genetics and environmental factors cause Parkinson’s…”

Parkinson’s Disease Natural Treatment & Remedies — in 5 Steps By Dr. Josh Axe, DC, DMN, CNS April 17, 2018 draxe.com
5 Steps of Natural Treatments for Parkinson’s Disease
Step 1:
Best Foods for Treating Parkinson’s

It’s important for Parkinson’s patients to eat a whole foods, nutrient-dense diet that includes plenty of fresh organic fruit, vegetables and high-quality meats. Removing processed foods and those that contain preservatives, synthetic ingredients and other chemicals is also very beneficial.

To improve this condition, start with a healthy Parkinson’s disease diet that includes the following foods:

Raw foods: Raw fruits and vegetables provide antioxidants to help reduce free radical damage and lower inflammation.
High fiber foods: Constipation is common among Parkinson’s patients, so be sure to eat plenty of fiber and also stay adequately hydrated to help improve bowel functions.
Healthy Fats: Consuming healthy fats can support neurological health and help prevent worsening moods. Add in foods like wild-caught fish, avocado, coconut, pastured butter, and sprouted nuts or seeds like walnuts and flax.
Cold-pressed oils: Olive oil used as salad dressing can provide essential vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant. Coconut oil and palm oil are also beneficial oils to include in your diet since they have anti-inflammatory effects.

Omega-3 foods: Increasing omega-3 intake can help elevate dopamine levels and reduce inflammation. Focus on consuming wild seafood several times weekly, as well as including nuts and seeds in your diet.
Fresh vegetable juices: These help provide essential vitamins and mineral. Fresh juice is also hydrating and can help with constipation.
Having protein at dinner only: Keeping protein levels moderate throughout the day has been shown to help reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s. (9)
Green Tea: Green tea contains polyphenol antioxidants that help fight free radicals. It also contains theanine, which elevates dopamine levels in the brain. Try drinking three cups a day to reap the most benefits.

Many people also benefit from eliminating grains completely.
For more details on increasing intake of nutrient-dense foods, check out the Healing Foods Diet Plan.

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally … My Recovery Protocol! fredphillips.wordpress.com
“..There were actually six factors, I believe, that led to me developing the brain fog [which I wrote about in an earlier blog]:

excessive drinking
high stress
poor diet
two severe head injuries [I had two major concussions when I was a teenager]
several traumatic experiences in the years leading up to it [including the loss of two close friends]
the loss of two lifelong dreams (becoming a veterinarian and a pro hockey player).
..

There are several reasons why I decided to take a natural approach. First, the only solution allopathic medicine offers involves medication and I am fundamentally opposed to using medication to treat chronic health conditions. Medications only suppress symptoms, they don’t heal. They also come with side effects and Parkinson’s medications can have nasty side effects, including anxiety, depression and hallucinations. [I still shudder every time I think about a drug I’ve seen advertised on TV that suppresses your craving to smoke, but can cause you to have suicidal thoughts.]…

The protocol includes:

Understanding and attitude
Diet
Detoxification
Exercise
Bodywork
Eliminating stress
Releasing unresolved emotional pain
Letting go of anger and fear
Remapping the brain
Spiritual practice

“..Watch this great testimony of a woman healed of Parkinson’s disease by God! It’s a great example of someone in persistent prayer like the parable of the “widow and the unfair judge” from Luke 18:1-8
Then Jesus told them a parable to show them they should always pray and not lose heart. 2 He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected people. 3 There was also a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’ 4 For a while he refused, but later on he said to himself, ‘Though I neither fear God nor have regard for people, 5 yet because this widow keeps on bothering me, I will give her justice, or in the end she will wear me out by her unending pleas.’” 6 And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unrighteous judge says! 7 Won’t God give justice to his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he delay long to help them? 8 I tell you, he will give them justice speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”..”

“..This is my chance to share my story of the Lords healing powers to a person who had very little hope and had given up on life all together. Over four years ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and had severe Neuropathy in my legs and ankles. The illness had progressed so bad and so fast that my ankles and feet were black in color and so sore and burning that I could not stand without a cane or walker. My weight had ballooned because I was unable to exercise enough to keep it down and stable which made my situation even worse. During this time my family and I had not been to church in a long time and we had lost our walk with the Lord. I had gone to several Doctors and specialists and each one gave me no hope to hang on to. I was giving in to this heartache and ready to die, in fact that was my prayer at that time…”

“.. Throughout the film, Melvin engages in ritualistic behaviors (i.e., compulsions) that disrupt his interpersonal and professional life. This cinematic representation of psychopathology accurately depicts the functional interference and distress associated with OCD; however, Melvin’s over-the-top eccentricities obscure the boundary between what is “quirky” and what is OCD. To clarify this distinction, I will discuss Melvin’s OCD symptoms with a focus on differentiating them from his underlying personality traits. ..”

Natural Depression Treatment drweil.com
“..Its basic recommendation encourages the daily practice of meditation, and this is perhaps the best way to address the root of depression and change it. This requires long-term commitment, however, as meditation does not produce immediate results.

Exercise. For more immediate, symptomatic depression treatment, there is no better method than regular aerobic exercise. Numerous studies have demonstrated the efficacy of a daily workout for improving emotional health and boosting self confidence. I recommend thirty minutes of continuous activity, at least five days a week for best results.
Check your meds. Make sure you are not taking any over-the-counter or prescription medications that contribute to depression. Avoid all antihistamines, tranquilizers, sleeping pills and narcotics if you have any tendency toward depression. You should also be cautious about the use of recreational drugs, notably alcohol, cocaine, amphetamines, downers, marijuana and ecstasy. These substances may provide a temporary sense of relief, but are likely to intensify depression to dangerous levels if used regularly.
Cut caffeine. Addiction to coffee and other forms of caffeine often interferes with normal moods and can aggravate depression.
Try acupuncture. This modality has proven itself to be very useful in treating several mood disorders, including depression.
Seek professional help. Find a psychotherapist, mental health professional or grief counselor who can help you explore the elements contributing to your depression and facilitate recovery. Cognitive behavioral therapy can be especially helpful.
Anti-depressant medications. Speak to your physician to determine if you are a candidate for anti-depressant medication. Proceed with caution, however, as an analysis by British researchers published in February, 2008, suggested that many commonly prescribed anti-depressant pharmaceuticals have limited effectiveness.

Nutrition and Supplements For Depression

Contributor, Harvard Health health.harvard.edu
“..

We’ll be doing a story on CAM therapies for psychiatric disorders in an upcoming issue of the Harvard Mental Health Letter. For now, here are some things I learned on Saturday:

Omega-3 fats, natural fats found in large quantities in cold-water fish such as salmon, can boost the effectiveness of an antidepressant in some people with depression. Omega-3 supplements are now being studied as an alternative to antidepressants during pregnancy.

St. John’s wort is an herbal remedy that can help people with mild-to-moderate symptoms of depression, but doesn’t seem to work as well for severe depression. St. John’s wort can cause problems when taken with some antidepressants and other medications, so talk with your doctor before trying it.

Maca root, a relative of the potato that is used in some cultures to enhance sexual response, may help counter erectile dysfunction, reduced libido, and other sexual side effects of antidepressants.

Valerian, derived from the root of a pink flower, can alleviate anxiety and help improve sleep just as well as some sedatives. It may be a good alternative to consider for children and the elderly—two groups especially sensitive to the side effects of medications. One downside: it takes a while to “kick in,” so if you need fast relief, look elsewhere.

Words to the wise. Just because these remedies come from plants and animals doesn’t automatically mean they are safe. Herbal remedies have unwanted side effects and can interact with medications just like antidepressants and other drugs do. Talk with your doctor before trying any alternative approach, especially if you take any medications…”

5 Tips That Will Change The Way You See Leukemia Cancer Forever
https://youtu.be/Xw6-Kou02ek
“..Here is what I talk about in this video: Leukemia or blood cancer is cancer of the blood cells. Blood cancer starts in the bone marrow, the soft tissue inside most bones. Blood has three types of cells: White blood cells fight infection Red blood cells carry oxygen to all parts of your body Platelets help you clot the blood when you are bleeding The bone marrow starts to make a lot of abnormal white blood cells, called leukemia cells. Leukemia cells grow faster than regular cells and won’t stop growing when they should. Over time, leukemia cells can crowd out the healthy blood cells. Leukemia cells can also spread to the lymph nodes or other organs and cause swelling or pain. Experts group leukemia in two ways: First, they determine how fast it develops and gets worse. They put them into one of two categories: acute or chronic. The other way experts classify leukemia is the type of blood cell involved. Usually myeloid or lymphoid. The four most common types of leukemia are: Acute lymphocytic leukemia Chronic lymphocytic leukemia Acute myeloid leukemia Chronic myeloid leukemia ..”

Ethan Stacy: Healed of Leukemia

“..Ethan Jacob Stacy was born on April 29. Two hours after he was born his parents, Chad and Mandy, were told Ethan had AML, an aggressive type of leukemia. The diagnosis was devastating to Chad and Mandy. Chemotherapy was an option. “The best that we could offer was to put Ethan through difficult chemotherapy and still not know that he would make it through, “shares Dr. Melissa Rhodes, one of Ethan’s former physicians at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. ..

Chad and Mandy knew they were near the end but Chad, Mandy and their friends continued to pray… believing God for the impossible.

“I remember rocking him and singing, ‘Open the eyes of my heart, Lord. I want to see you’,” Mandy says. “I knew that if I just focused my mind on Christ that’s the only way that I could make it through.” The night that Ethan faced his greatest medical crisis, something happened. “Mandy late that night started feeding, and he started taking his bottle a little bit at a time,” Chad says. The next day, Ethan was a little stronger… Mandy says, “I remember sitting at the kitchen table and saying, ‘I believe God’s healing him. I can see God working.’ Then he just gradually started getting better. And over the next week, we were back up to six ounces of formula every three hours.”

A MIRACLE
Over the next two weeks, Ethan improved. When Mandy took him back to Vanderbilt to check his blood counts his platelets level was like 415,000 — in normal range,

“…CANCER is a tumor that grows progressively through the body. It includes leukemia, lymphoma and other malignant tumors.

Here is the prayer for cancer sick people and how to minister:
1.Bind and cast out the spirit of cancer.
2.Curse the seed, root and cells of the cancer.
3.Lay hands on the affected area, commanding every cancer cell in the body to die.
4.Command the bone marrow to produce pure, healthy blood.
5.Command healing to all organs and tissues affected and restoration of parts where necessary.
6.Command the body’s defensive “killer” cells to multiply and attack all cancer cells.

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…”

“..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?

“.. 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…”

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

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
“..is is done through the use of micro (small) cycles, combined to form meso (intermediate size) cycles, which combine to form macro (biggest) cycles…

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. ..

Undulating periodization provides different training protocols during the micro cycles, in addition to changing the training variables after each micro cycle. Undulating programs tend to be less 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….”

Fitness record-keeping: not just a waste of trees
Published: 05-Nov-2014 Updated: 10-Nov-2015 fitness.org.au
“…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.

73-Year-Old on the CrossFit Games Open: “I’m Doing It This Year!”
https://youtu.be/xUb6E81YQ6A
“Nancy Hoshaw survived a heart attack at 48 and breast cancer at 60. At 73, she’s entering the CrossFit Games Open, which kicked off Feb. 25. While some compete to be named Fittest on Earth, Hoshaw is competing with time and age—and she’s winning. After seeing decrepit women on a trip to Israel, Hoshaw decided a slow slide into a retirement home wasn’t for her. “My goal is to stay healthy and independent. I cherish my independence,” she says. Her coach at CrossFit Bay Area in Webster, Texas, is two-time CrossFit Games athlete Jordan Cook. Cook describes CrossFit as a lifestyle, noting how the community keeps people active and energized while they preserve and improve function. “The whole point of … functional fitness is not just to get better at fitness but to help us in our everyday life,” Cook explains. While Hoshaw was dead set against doing the Open last year, she’s all in for 2016. When Cook shared an Instagram video of Hoshaw preparing for the five-week competition about a month ago, she inspired people around the world and found more motivation herself. “I feel like I can encourage other people, but at the same time I’m encouraged myself,” she says. “It’s amazing the doors that you can open if you just … give it a try.” Video by Elliot and Lindsay Schrock.
