The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    panic or anxiety disorder - weak pshyce?

    i was wondering, but does anyone know the reasons for panic or anxiety disorder? Is it due to a "weak pshyce" or is it a hormonial issue? And can a person get a panic or anxiety disorder just out of the blue or is it conected with a trauma?

    I believe (but not quite positive) that panic/anxiety disorders are due to a chemical imbalance. AFAIK it can occur out of the blue, at least it did for me.

    The major neurotransmitters in the brain are dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. Many if not most of the mood disorders are due to imbalances of these neurotransmitters. When these disorders occur there's nothing the person did to bring them on. Environmental factors can exacerbate things, though. A person's "mental strength" (not your words) has nothing to do with it.

    ummm..i think he was raised in egypt or iraq or one of those places ironically. the name of the book is Thyroid Solutions, and His last name is Arem.

    he works out of a major hospital in houston. basically he believes that T3 is one of the major, if underrated neuro-trasnmitters, and that depression, and anxiety disorders can actually be resolved by using a little T3.

    there are studies lately that suggest that medicinal strategy used for these disorders are a "cop out". or BS solution, and they should and can be dealt with thru cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy.

    i hope this is true so all the pro dope smokers lose yet another arguement.

    i disagree.


    i experienced/experience depression with a side of panic attacks when i didn't have enough thyroid hormone floating in my veins.


    when my t3/t4 levels are all in balance, i experience nothing liek that.

    If cognitive and behavioral therapy was THE answer for these problems, the issue would have been settled a long time ago, IMO. Same as for drug treatment. I would imagine these things are multifactorial and some people will benefit from different modalities.

    It's one form of thyroid hormone. It has three iodine molecules attached to it. The other form is T4, which has four iodines on it.

    Ah, but that's assuming that we know what we're talking about! *LOL*

    What did the study have to say?

    I don't know. I'm not sure anybody knows what makes one person have problems with neurotransmitters and not another person.

    genetic predisposition is one factor that is not 100% proven, but highly likely. people with parents or relatives with imbalances are 3 times more likely than the general population.

    stress is considered to be another determinant factor.

    thats all i got ladies and genitals...

    no you are not weak if you get them. they can be brought on by PTSD (post tramautic stress disorder) as well as being predisposed. yes it is a chemical imbalance. The most effective drug to treat this is paxil. I developed panic disorder after a death in the family. It never goes away by the way. But I went on meds for 3 years. After I got off them, I'm still fine. You just learn how to handle/prevent them sometimes. But they NEVER go away. If you let them come back, they will

    I think you'll have depression if ANY of your major whoremoanes/noorowtrannys are messed with.

    Bottom out your test, plunk.
    Bottom out thyroid levels, plunk.
    Dopes are mean, plunk.
    Sarah's tone, plunk.

    Anything that has an impact on your day-to-day life, plunk.

    Depressions/elevations in those things come in every shape, form, size, whatever. Trauma, disease, deficiencies, etc etc.
