Ray Peat, PhD: Quotes Relating to Exercise

Posted by on Jun 25, 2016 in Exercise, Nutrition | No Comments

“Besides fasting, or chronic protein deficiency, the common causes of hypothyroidism are excessive stress or “aerobic” (i.e. anaerobic) exercise, and diets containing beans, lentils, nuts, unsaturated fats (including carotene), and undercooked broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and mustard greens. Many health conscious people become hypothyroid with a synergistic program of undercooked vegetables, legumes instead of animal proteins, oils instead of butter, carotene instead of vitamin A, and breathless exercise instead of stimulating life.”

”Incidental stresses, such as strenuous exercise combined with fasting (e.g., running or working before eating breakfast) not only directly trigger the production of lactate and ammonia, they also are likely to increase the absorption of bacterial endotoxin from the intestine. Endotoxin is a ubiquitous and chronic stressor. It increases lactate and nitric oxide, poisoning mitochondrial respiration, precipitating the secretion of the adaptive stress hormones, which don’t always fully repair the cellular damage.”

ELDOA News: What is ELDOA? What ELDOA is Not…
ELDOA are not fascia exercises alone, muscles do contract during the ELDOA, ELDOA is not yoga either. These phrases are often used to describe what the ELDOA exercise is doing. The ELDOA exercises do respect specific fascial principles, but other types of exercise can as well. The ELDOA exercises organized by Guy VOYER, DO are exercise postures that are designed to normalize tension in a specific joint/joint region. This is accomplished by putting the body in a specific posture and then working. The exercises can have a global effect on surrounding structures via the descriptive anatomical links.
