Exercise?! Do You Realize How Much I Hurt?

how-do-i-exercise-when-i-hurt-so-badYou’ve heard it: being physically active is good for you. Most people understand how and why exercise benefits their body, but if they suffer from some sort of body pain, it is not easy to convince yourself to add physical activity into your daily routine.

This is understandable, because when you hurt the last thing that you want to do is force yourself to move those body parts. However, did you know that physical activity is one of the best ways to decrease body aches and pain? Exercise can help you develop more range of motion, strength, and flexibility. It also improves your circulation and can ease joint pain.

Basically when you move around, you get more oxygen and nutrient rich blood flowing through your body. You also work out tension and reduce stress in the muscles and tissues.

Maybe you have tried to get active but were just totally defeated by how difficult it was for you. Before giving up on physical activity, try a topical pain reliever to help you get more active.

Some people pop an NSAID in order to get going, but there are many who cannot do this because of the health concerns that arise from taking painkillers too often.

Topical pain relievers are easy to use and safe for your body. All you have to do is take a few seconds to rub some lotion on the areas that hurt. But, before you just dive into exercise, wait for about 20-30 minutes in order to allow the lotion to soak in and take effect. During this waiting time, apply another layer of lotion. If it is a good topical pain reliever, you will feel relief.  

Topical pain relievers that contain menthol and capsicum reduce the pain sensations that are sent to your brain. There are many pain relief lotions that contain numerous ingredients that help to relieve muscle tension and cramps. Real Time Pain Relief contains 19 ingredients that are known to reduce pain and inflammation, and help you get more active so that you can relieve your pain at the source.

Before you just write off exercise because of your pain, give a topical pain reliever a chance! You may just find that the combination of physical exercise and topical pain relief lotion get you more bodily function and relief from the pain that troubles you.

However, some runners still wonder, “Why can’t I just carry my water bottle in my hand while I run?” There is a very good reason: it could be creating serious problems for your body.

Sleep: The Problem and The Solution

sleepIt’s no surprise that sleep plays a huge role when it comes to physical health. But to what extent? Most medical professionals will agree that adequate, restful sleep is crucial when it comes to staying healthy and preventing disease. Those who experience sleep difficulties for long periods of time, have a higher risk of developing conditions such as hypertension, depression, diabetes, obesity, and even some forms of cancer. Not to mention, those who get more sufficient sleep typically live longer and experience a higher quality of life. Around 50-70 million Americans report suffering from some form of sleep disorder. Any medical professional will tell you that sleep is just as important to living a healthy life as diet and exercise. 

So how much sleep is enough? That depends on age. The National Institute of Health suggest that school-age children require at least 10 hours of sleep each night. Teens get away with around 9 hours, and adults need around 7-8. Unfortunately, around 30% of adults receive less than 6 hours of sleep each night.

How Does My Posture Affect My Health?

How-does-my-posture-affect-my-healthDid you know that your posture could be the root cause of a lot of your aches and pains? Researchers have performed numerous studies and found that the way we hold our bodies drastically affects how we feel. They have linked poor posture habits to high stress, depression, circulation issues, increased risk for diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, and slowing of intestinal activity, which leads to lots of other problems.

Some people even find that poor posture affects their careers, or how others view them, simply because they do not appear to be proud. When you walk through the door with your head down and your shoulders hunched over, you might come across as being sad and lacking energy. A Harvard study recently found that people who slouch have 10% less testosterone and a 15% increase in cortisol levels than people who don’t slouch. This means that people who slouch are dealing with more of the “stress chemical” known as cortisol. High cortisol and low testosterone levels can also cause feelings of low self confidence.

The other big factor about your posture is that you are holding your entire bodily frame in positions that cause misalignment, tension, and stress. As these 3 things occur to your bones, muscles, joints, tissues, etc, you develop sore spots, cramps, cricks, tense muscles, and more. Basically, you will feel pain in one or more areas of your body, and it may even be chronic pain.

Many people feel that they do not have the ability to fix their posture. Maybe they feel like they don’t have extra time to work on it, or they think that it will cost a lot of money, however, it doesn’t have to eat up a lot of your time or your hard earned money. All it takes is a little commitment and some patience with yourself.

What You Need to Know About Vitamin D

vitamin-DThere are signs and symptoms that stem from the lack of vitamin D; one of them is depression. Serotonin, the neurotransmitter that regulates mood elevation rises with more exposure to light. There are many determining factors that place you at risk for a deficiency in Vitamin D.  For instance, those with darker skin are more at risk for Vitamin D deficiency. The darker your complexion, the more exposure you need from the sun; almost 10 times more exposure than what you would consider as enough for a pale person. Someone may also have a deficiency in Vitamin D if they are 50 years or older. The older you get, the less your skin responds to sun exposure, resulting in less production of Vitamin D in the body. The kidneys also become less efficient at converting Vitamin D into something usable by your body. Those who are over 50 (especially if they are retired) may also spend more time indoors compared to a younger adult. Sometimes those who come into the doctor’s office complaining of aches and pains in their bones, often end up being misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, but what they may be experiencing is a Vitamin D deficiency. Ten to fifteen minutes of direct sunlight per day can help the body produce an adequate amount of vitamin D. Some researchers have concluded that Vitamin D helps to relieve pain by aiding in the absorption of calcium, which aids in bone repair and growth. Research has estimated that a majority of people with unexplained sources of pain were found to be deficient in vitamin D levels. There seems to be a correlation between Vitamin D and living with pain. A physician or nutritionist should know enough about Vitamin D, and if they believe you may have this deficiency, they should work with you to develop a treatment plan that includes regular sun exposure and possibly Vitamin D supplements.
