Muscle Strength Is In The Mind: Just Imagining Arm Exercises Creates A Tangible Effect On The Body

Muscle Strength Is In The Mind: Just Imagining Arm Exercises Creates A Tangible Effect On The Body

Brain and brawn aren’t mutually exclusive—that, in fact, they have more in common than they ever thought. In a small study recently published in the Journal of Neurophysiology, researchers found that much of muscle strength is based on brain activity, rather than on the mass of the muscles themselves. “There’s a fair amount of evidence that you’ll activate the same parts of the brain doing imagery as you do if you’re actually doing the task itself,” explained Brian Clark, a physiology professor at Ohio University and the study’s lead author. “The basic thought is that the imagery is allowing the brain to maintain those connections.”

22 Remarkable Health Benefits Of Epsom Salt: Why It Should Be In Every Home And Garden

Epsom salts have been used by many different cultures for hundreds of years.

Using Epsom salt baths is an advanced detoxification strategy that has remarkable health benefits. Epsom salt is made up of magnesium and sulfate, which can help improve health in numerous ways.

Sulfate is essential for many biological processes, helping to flush toxins and helping form proteins in joints, brain tissue and mucin proteins.

29 Signs You’re Doing Just Fine (Even If It Doesn’t Feel Like It)

We all have days, weeks, months and – for some – even years of feeling anxious and uncertain. It’s a vague feeling you can’t quite put your finger on.

New Technology Burning Away Brain Tumors

New Technology Burning Away Brain Tumors

They heat a thin laser probe-up to 130 degrees-then insert it through a tiny hole and essentially burn the tumor.

With the laser procedure – it’s a three-quarter inch incision, one day in the hospital, and one to two week recovery.

Is The Band-Aid Magical?

Is The Band-Aid Magical?

I’m sure all of us cut ourselves at some point during our childhood and the first thing we did was to rush directly to our mothers for help. She may have addressed this seemingly devastating trauma at the time with all of her attention, a small detailed examination followed by soap and water, some calm reassuring words, a warm embrace, and then a Band-Aid. At that moment, the pain very likely went away…and you ‘felt’ better. What you experienced was likely your first conscious experience of the placebo response. Here is why.

Achy and Sore With No Idea Why?

Achy and Sore With No Idea Why?

It feels like muscle pain, but unlike a tight hamstring that makes you yelp when you stand up, your ache isn’t triggered by a particular movement, and you can feel it in different places at various times. The culprit could be your fascia (pronounced “fash-ya”), says Mary Ann Wilmarth, DPT, chief of physical therapy at Harvard University Health Services. This sheet of tissue, made up of densely packed protein fibers, weaves throughout the entire body, and it binds and supports your muscles, bones and even your organs. While bodywork specialists have been passionate about fascia for decades, Wilmarth says it took new research on how fascia and muscles work together (some of it presented at the first international fascia research conference at Harvard in 2007) to get different health pros — from orthopedists to MDs and pain experts to personal trainers — to catch on.
