Overtraining Syndrome: Rest, Recover, and Regenerate

This is why, even though the virus itself rarely ventures outside the lungs, the symptoms of the flu are so widespread."

In a Cytokine Storm, the two sides of the immune system are out of balance (see previous link). And although we typically think of immune system dysfunction as a 'weakened' response, all too often it's just the opposite. Not only does this imbalance lead to varying degrees of the situation described above (the Cytokine Storm), it can also lead to longer-term dysfunction in the form of --- the body losing immune inhibition to the degree it starts to attack itself.

Nowhere is this process seen more clearly than with . What if I told you that during the polio epidemic of the 40's and 50's, virtually everyone had polio. The crazy part is that only about one in twenty had any symptoms (usually they had something akin to a cold or flu), and of that five percent with symptoms, about one in ten developed varying degrees of what we call "polio". And what's doubly crazy is that the epidemic was largely over before the vaccine(s) came into use (). The culprit in paralytic polio? Not the virus itself, since most people didn't react at all --- at least visibly. The Cytokine Storm was the culprit. Allow me to give you a couple of examples showing that the severity of viral disease is often directly proportional to the severity of the storm.

Also, just because an athlete might present any of the symptoms of overtraining does not mean he or she is overtrained.

Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment of the Overtraining Syndrome: ..

There are a myriad of facts associated with being autoimmune, including a significantly greater likelihood of being and having a (LGS is, interestingly enough, also associated in the peer-reviewed literature, with long distance running or overtraining of almost any sort). Speaking of Leaky Gut Syndrome, with your history; if you feel you need to run, do more and less mileage --- and do all of it on soft surface such as in a park or on a rubberized track (or a good treadmill with suspension when the weather is cruddy).

One of the problems with back surgeries is that they create in the . Then there's the problem with adjacent degeneration (the joints/vertebrae above and below the surgery tend to wear out much more rapidly than the rest of the spine". And as for the diagnosis of , it's hard to say what it really means (), although it certainly indicates some degree of loss of .

Now, let's talk about . I've come to the realization that much of what I have in the past believed to be PS is probably actually . Regardless, in over a quarter century in practice, I am not sure I have seen anything quite like what you are dealing with. It certainly does not act like any piriformis issue I am familiar with. To make a broad generalization, people with PS tend to spend lots of time laying down or even standing up and walking because they absolutely cannot sit (you mention nothing about having problems sitting so I assume you can sit OK). I'm also not convinced this is a disc problem (although that is likely what your doctors will push for). It could be, but the manifestation is unlike anything I've seen with discs.

Bottom line Dave: I have real doubts I would be able to help you with this, although it might actually turn out to be an easy fix (I would certainly not give up a vacation --- if you happen to be coming to the this summer, look me up). What I would recommend, however, is that you do a stringent , and then do something along the lines of (there are several versions), as that seems to be the thing that most effectively tackles autoimmune diseases. And while RLS is not nearly as severe as other A.I.

Thanks to any number of factors (vaccines included), we see that we have traded acute infectious diseases ( is a great example) and most particularly the childhood diseases that everyone used to get, for (not to mention autoimmunity).

is considered to be suffering from overtraining syndrome ..

Although it's not a journal, (a loosely-knit group of about 40,000 physicians, scientists, and researchers from around the globe) is considered the gold standard for taking large amounts of data from dozens --- or even hundreds --- of similar studies, throwing it all together, and then "crunching the data" so as to make sense of it all, with an objective of coming to some useful "evidence-based" conclusions.

The point of today's post is to warn you to take everything (even what you read on my site) with a grain of salt. As an example of what I'm talking about, I'd like to provide you a timeline, along with some highlights of the studies and stories that were published over the past couple of decades concerning the multi-billion dollar drug known as Tamiflu and its relationship to Dr.

is the Glutamine Hypothesis of Overtraining.

Driscoll started out by discussing the history of biomechanics along with it's founding father, one Giovanni Borelli, an Italian mathematician, physicist, anatomist, and physiologist of the Renaissance (he wrote his famous treatise on biomechanics in the mid-1600's). After talking about the numerous tools and amazing technology that scientists have at their disposal today as compared to Borelli's day, Driscoll stated, "" What does he mean by this?

Because there are multiple muscles that accomplish very similar movements, fascia must be removed from the mathematical equations in order to make them "". "

The interconnectedness of the nodes aims to reinforce the impact that each will have on the others, which will ultimately reflect as health or dysfunction, which may manifest as pain and disease."

If there is one thing our medical profession is good at it's finding gross-pathology. In fact, current "evidence" clearly shows how far out of balance the practice of medicine has been tipped in this direction (). Lest some of you accuse me of being mean or over-exaggerating the problem, bear in mind that this is common knowledge. You can't even call it a dirty little secret (or even an open secret) because it's not a secret at all. If you wanted, you could find dozens of articles and studies showing that while our medical profession is fantastic in dealing with trauma or life-threatening events, when it comes to , we are failing miserably. Why? Mostly because with standard care, the of almost every chronic disease you can think of are not being addressed (the link is the proof, and as you'll see if you click, many chronic issues are actually being caused by medical interventions --- the best example being our love affair with ).

What's really cool is that Drs.
