About Sleep / Sobre el Sueño

Sleep is very essential to the body. Sleeping with the moon and waking up with the sun is one of the most important thinks you can do for optimal function. It is called the Circadian Rythm.

The Circadian Rythm is a natural internal process that regulates the sleep-wake cycle which repeats every 24 hours and effects the physical, mental and behavioral changes. Natural responses to light and dark affect most living things, including animals, plants, and microbes.

The Circadian Rythm affects the body wake clock, metabolism, and well being.

Waking up and falling asleep at the same time each day helps the body to function at its optimum levels.

Disrupting your sleep pattern can be detrimental to your health and body function. Also keeping regular sleep patterns can help with Fat loss and staying in shape. A certain amount of hours must be obtained during sleep.

Sleeping during the day and working during the nite, will definitely disrupt your Circadian Rythm and brake down your health.

En Espanol

El sueño es muy esencial para el cuerpo. Dormir con la luna y despertarse con el sol es una de las cosas más importantes que se pueden hacer para un funcionamiento óptimo. Se llama el Ritmo Circadiano.

El Ritmo Circadiano es un proceso interno natural que regula el ciclo de sueño-vigilia que se repite cada 24 horas y afecta a los cambios físicos, mentales y de comportamiento. Las respuestas naturales a la luz y la oscuridad afectan a la mayoría de los seres vivos, incluidos los animales, las plantas y los microbios.

El ritmo circadiano afecta al reloj de vigilia del cuerpo, al metabolismo y al bienestar.

About Recovery / Sobre la Recuperación

Body Recovery

Every human being must recovery on a daily basis by eating properly and sleeping enough hours to regenerate and heal. Even though most people do not get injured or have problems, but the body must get enough rest to recover. That is what we call rest.

Muscle recovery

Muscle recovery is when humans are involved in physical work, exercise or injury. After a workout, whether it is cycling or running or weight lifting or swimming or hiking or even walking and a lot of time involved in heavy work and construction, the body has extended it resources and must replenish and heal to get back to a normalcy status. Normal means homeostasis equilibrium and stability to adjusting to the conditions for best survival.

During the time of recovery, the body is adapting to the stress associated with the exercise or work, replenishing muscle glycogen and energy storage and time for the body tissue to repair.

En Espanol

Recuperación del cuerpo

Todo ser humano debe recuperarse diariamente comiendo adecuadamente y durmiendo las horas suficientes para regenerarse y sanar. Aunque la mayoría de las personas no se lesionan ni tienen problemas, pero el cuerpo debe descansar lo suficiente para recuperarse. Esto es lo que llamamos descanso.

Recuperación Muscular

La recuperación muscular se produce cuando el ser humano realiza un trabajo físico, un ejercicio o una lesión. Después de un entrenamiento, ya sea montar en bicicleta o correr o levantar pesas o nadar o incluso caminar y mucho tiempo involucrado en trabajos pesados y de construcción, el cuerpo ha ampliado sus recursos y debe reponer y sanar para volver a un estado de normalidad. Normal significa equilibrio y estabilidad de la homeostasis para ajustarse a las condiciones para la mejor supervivencia.

Durante el tiempo de recuperación, el cuerpo se está adaptando al estrés asociado con el ejercicio o el trabajo, reponiendo el glucógeno muscular y el almacenamiento de energía y el tiempo para que el tejido del cuerpo se repare.

About Healing / Sobre la Curación

Healing the Body

We discussed the way to heal the body and many ways to recover. Keep in mind that the 3 most important ways must be applied in order for each one to be complete. The 3 ways are:

    1. Physical healing
    2. Psychological Healing
    3. Physiological Healing

Think about that. Each one will affect the other and if one is not healed, the other 2 are not enough for the body to function on an optimum level.

En Espanol

La curación del cuerpo

Hablamos de la forma de sanar el cuerpo y de muchas maneras de recuperarse. Tenga en cuenta que las 3 formas más importantes deben ser aplicadas para que cada una sea completa. Las 3 formas son

    1. Curación física
    2. Curación psicológica
    3. Curación fisiológica

Piensa en ello. Cada una afectará a la otra y si una no se cura, las otras 2 no son suficientes para que el cuerpo funcione en un nivel óptimo.
