    How to Cure your Symptoms

    Man was born without grocery stores and computers, houses and sofas, and water or electricity. That is the way of life our bodies were designed to live in, to actively move and search for food and water, to get sun in the day and to rest during the night.

    Do you have insomnia, depression, circulation problems, headaches, irritability, bad skin/hair, or other problems that medicines don't seem to help?

    There is a very simple cure, it is regular exercise. No not run 1 day then sit around for a week. It is exercising many days a week for a decent amount of time.





    Physical exercise is important for maintaining physical fitness and can contribute positively to maintaining a healthy weight, building and maintaining healthy bone density, muscle strength, and joint mobility, promoting physiological well-being, reducing surgical risks, and strengthening the immune system.

    Frequent and regular aerobic exercise has been shown to help prevent or treat serious and life-threatening chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, insomnia, and depression[6]. Strength training appears to have continuous energy-burning effects that persist for about 24 hours after the training, though they do not offer the same cardiovascular benefits as aerobic exercises do.

    There is conflicting evidence as to whether vigorous exercise (more than 70% of VO2 Max) is more or less beneficial than moderate exercise (40 to 70% of VO2 Max). Some studies have shown that vigorous exercise executed by healthy individuals can effectively increase opioid peptides (aka endorphins, a naturally occurring opiate that in conjunction with other neurotransmitters is responsible for exercise induced euphoria and has been shown to be addictive), positively influence hormone production (i.e., increase testosterone and growth hormone),[7] benefits that are not as fully realized with moderate exercise.

    Exercise has been shown to improve cognitive functioning via improvement of hippocampus-dependent spatial learning, and enhancement of synaptic plasticity and neurogenesis.[8] In addition, physical activity has been shown to be neuroprotective in many neurodegenerative and neuromuscular diseases.[9] For instance, it reduces the risk of developing dementia.[10] Furthermore, anecdotal evidence suggests that frequent exercise may reverse alcohol-induced brain damage.[11]

    Physical activity is thought to have other beneficial effects related to cognition as it increases levels of nerve growth factors, which support the survival and growth of a number of neuronal cells.[12]

    Both aerobic and anaerobic exercise also work to increase the mechanical efficiency of the heart by increasing cardiac volume (aerobic exercise), or myocardial thickness (strength training). Such changes are generally beneficial and healthy if they occur in response to exercise.

    Not everyone benefits equally from exercise. There is tremendous variation in individual response to training: where most people will see a moderate increase in endurance from aerobic exercise, some individuals will as much as double their oxygen uptake, while others will never get any benefit at all from the exercise.[13][14] Similarly, only a minority of people will show significant muscle growth after prolonged weight training, while a larger fraction experience improvements in strength.[15] This genetic variation in improvement from training is one of the key physiological differences between elite athletes and the larger population.[16][17] Studies have shown that exercising in middle age leads to better physical ability later in life.




    Enjoy your improved life.

    Love, epoch

    i think the main problem is that people only see exercise as losing weight or gaining muscle when the list of benefits to some good cardio and stretches is huge. There's no good way to explain the feeling of steady exercise, people don't realize that most of the problems they have can be fixed with the simple things that doctors forget to recommend.

    true, and I think everyone should be in the gym AT LEAST 3 times a week working up a sweat, but I think for the most part people have a goal and that's either losing weight or gaining muscle.

    It's amazing how many people don't workout or exercise at all, probably why everyone is so fat combined with the shitty diets people follow...I guess i'm lucky though because there is nothing I enjoy more then going to the gym, so it's not a problem for me..I will say though that the only time I had motivation issues was the first couple of days at the gym when I had first joined. The reason being is I felt uncomfortable, weak, had no idea what I was doing, etc.

    For anyone who has problems with that, do what I did and find a friend to go to the gym with..just stick with them, read up online, find a good routine, after awhile you'll get an understanding of what everything is, what works for your body/what doesn't..

    cliffs: GET YOUR ASS OUT THERE AND EXERCISE LAZY FUCKS

    Not only that, but there is also the argument that moderate exercise doesn't even give you the full benefits of exercising even more consistently. I'm definitely a moderate exerciser but after reading this thread I kind of want to make it a much more consistent thing


    But yeah, I know a lot of people that would turn to a drug before even considering their bad habits as an option. People tend to want to take the easy way out, and put the blame on external factors.


    This thread is awesome

    such a belittled concept that gets lost in so many misconceptions about too many areas in life.

    this thread rocks

    also, symptoms of "elderly" are not symptoms of age but in fact symptoms of habitual behavior from the beginning of your adolescent and youthful life.

    stay fun and be active!

    hey mr. mod noob... its not a cure... its a potential cure.

    "while others will never get any benefit at all from the exercise"

    "This genetic variation in improvement from training is one of the key physiological differences between elite athletes and the larger population."

    it's almost like we don't have a lifestyle forum

    does the thread starter get an infraction?
