Today, I’m going to be talking about “THE OTHER RUSH”, Endorphins. this is part 2 of a 8 part series. You’ve probably heard about “the runner’s high” or something similar… hot yoga does that too, but I’m also going to talk about what happens when you don’t get your drugs.
Endorphins are responsible for clearing the dust out of your mind, making the world seem new, imporve sleep cycles and wide variety other benefits if you know how to access those chemicals in a healthy way.
I’m also going to transition, a little, to cover how endorphins and adrenalin affect people’s life choices, their wants and needs, even whom they get into relationships with. Join me at 1 pm and let’s talk about it.

On today's episode of Getting Social with Miriam, Yvette Vega will be interviewed. Yvette Vega, Executive Producer for the Endorphins System,has released a program to help people suffering from depression to regain control of their lives.Ms. Vega is also Director of Public Relations for Neurobehavioral Research; an FDA approved Clinical Research site. After what happened with Robin Williams, the topic of depression needs to be brought out more.
When things go wrong, it doesn’t mean it needs to continue that way. When having a bad day it’s easy to get caught up in judging the day and ourselves; but don’t focus on everything that is going bad or not working. It’s ok to acknowledge the problem, but focus on what is working Try doing things that will take your mind off of how bad you are feeling about the way your day is going. Remember, positivity attracts positivity..
1. If it is possible at the start of the “troubles”, talk to someone about it. Call up a friend or family member for advice, or sympathy.
2. Listen to a favorite song and sing along. studies have shown that listening to music you like can alter your mood and even alleviate depression. In your iPod, make a “Feel Better” playlist; try to choose positive, uplifting songs that you can sing along to.
3. Watch a funny YouTube video.
4. Practice deep breathing. Deep breathing has a naturally therapeutic, stress-reducing quality that can help you stop the rush of stress hormones that a bad day can bring about. Take a few moments to close your eyes. Practice inhaling deeply through your nose for a two- second count, pausing for two seconds, and then exhaling for another two seconds. Thiswill help stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system that quiets down your stress response.
5. Count Your Blessings: Gratitude has some wonderful benefits for stress management. It's hard to focus on how bad things are when you're focusing on how good things are.
6. Exercise causes a burst of endorphins and the ability to blow off steam can take the negative energy out of your day.
7. Chocolate: one small piece of very good chocolate, savored provides a quiet break from stress.
"While on the radio show Tuesday, Glenn and Simon Sinek, author of Start With Why and Leaders Eat Last, discussed how the chemicals in our brain react to certain actions and achievements.
Tonight, we discuss that and how it all comes together to form the world in which we live. Is it political? Yep.
Sadness, loneliness, anger, worry, and fear are some of the negative emotions that can prompt a person to turn to alcohol or drugs for a temporary escape, the rush of endorphins into the blood stream and the sense of comfort they bring, even if for only a short time. When these methods of self comfort become habitual, a person loses the ability to handle unpleasant emotions without them. But while alcohol and drug addictions are easy to recognize, food addictions are often misunderstood. Obesity is the result of eating habits out of control, but often the reason behind overeating is emotional distress. Food can be a source of comfort just as can alcohol or drugs. Are you a number of pounds heavier than you would like but haven't been able to shed those extra pounds? Have you noticed not just what you eat but WHEN and WHY you eat? Did you gain wait after a relationship breakup? After a job loss? After a loved ones death? Certain life experiences are distressing, and when food becomes our source of comfort, we eat those things that flood our bodies with comforting endorphins - which are often sugary foods with less nutritional value. Are you overeating to mask a state of depression? How do you know when food has become your drug?
According to Dr. Patricia Burke, getting massages on a regular basis is an excellent way of caring for oneself. In her brief article published recently in the June-August JaVintee Massage Newsletter, she discusses the fact that massages help to release endorphins which are natural chemicals from the brain that relieve pain and makes us feel good. Dr. Burke will be interviewed as a guest on the JaVintee Massage Radio Show, to discuss the benefits of massage therapy, and how it helps with coping with depression. Also on the show will be the lead Licensed Massage Therapists and Vice-President of JaVintee Massage, who will discuss some of the significant improvements she has noticed in her client's mood elevation as it relates to Massage Therapy. We will address a variety of questions, as well as explain how you can set an appointment to come in for an assessment, and explore possible resolutions with the Massage Therapists.

Many people feel life is a struggle and they are on the losing side. They often feel that everything and everybody is against them and the stress of just being alive is almost more than they can endure. What about you? Do you have stress that is preventing you from being happy? These feelings often come from efforts to control our environments, conflicts with other people, and an inability to get by. Tensions take many forms and involve such emotions as anger, hate, anxiety, guilt and fear. These bring about physically and emotionally damaging effects which can result in illness.
Of course, we all need some stress to stay alive, awake, and alert. We must learn what our best level of stress is and how to use it to function effectively. We don’t want to allow extreme reactions to envelop us so that day-to-day living gets the better of us. We need to not let the external stress control our lives, but instead control our internal responses so that we can use the power of the Life within us to create our best lives possible.

You are a unique being, and yet you are a part of a whole. We are all connected. We are ONE consciousness. We are all a part of the Cosmic Central Consciousness we call God. This consciousness creates an energy grid around the Earth. Thoughts are energy and everyone's thoughts contribute to the energy grid around the Earth all the time. People who are negative in their thoughts influence others, which is where violent mob behavior comes from. But people who are positive in their thoughts can also influence others, and can go into a crowded room and create a feeling of well being in everyone. This is why commedians are so popular, they raise the goup consciousness to a vibration of joy.They make people laugh and laughter releases endorphins into the bloodstream and helps the body relax and heal itself. Thoughts are energy. Today we will look at new discoveries that verify ancient knowledge about the telepathic energy wie all emit everyday, and why some homes are toxic and others are healthy. What energy are you creating in your home? Can you heal physical ailments by changing your thoughts? Can you help others around you heal - also by changing YOUR thoughts?

Power of laughter. The modern father of laughter therapy is Norman Cousins. For 30 years he was the editor of the National Review. In 1976, he wrote an article that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine. There he recounted his own self treatment with humor, where he treated a life threatening form of arthritis called Anklylosing Spondylitis.
His Droctors gave him no chance of recovery. Tranditional medicine failed to relieve his pain. Cousins checked into a hotel after he left the hospital and took mega doses of vitamin C and watched Marx Bros. films and sitcomss and found that 10 minutes of belly laughter allowed him of 2 hours of painfree sleep. In his book, Anatomy of An Illness, he spoke about the healing of his illness through laughter. To this day, this book, inspired research into the effect of emotions on our health.
E.E. Cuming's, the poet, said, "The most wasted of all days is one without laughter."
We are all born with the gift of laughter. Laughter is a natural medicine. It lifts our spirits and makes us happy. It is a contagious emotion. It can bring people together. It makes us feel more alive and empowered.
Laughter therapy also known as humour therapy. It aims to use the natural physiological process of laughter to help relieve physical or emotional stress or discomfort. Over the years, researchers have conducted studies to explore the impact of laughter on health. After evaluating participants before and after a humourous event, i.e. a comic video, studies have revealed that episodes of laughter help to reduce pain, decrease stress related hormones i.e. cortisol and boosted the immunity system of participants of the study.
Join this funfilled discussion with Dr. Richard Tscherne, and be prepared to laugh!
Chronic stress creates a chemical imbalance in the brain that prompts some to turn to drugs and alcohol to provide the endorphins necessary to create inner calm and tranquility. Unfortunately, drug addiction and alcoholism has been criminalized rather than treated as a health issue. The question is, can this reliance on other substances to correct the chemical imbalance created by stress be a hereditary tendancy? What if chronic stress has been a way of life for so many generations in your family that you are now born without the capacity to produce the necessary endorphins to enable you to cope with stress without a mental breakdown? Dr. Kenneth Nave, author of A Season of Afflictions, shares his research and discovery about how the stress of injustice, racial inequality, and daily threats to ones well being can, over time, have an effect on ones genes. What are we producing in our children? Is there a reason why the violence among youth has escalated? Is it hereditary or learned behavior? How do we reverse this trend? Dr. Nave shares his findings and introduces his upcoming book which exposes some shocking developments
