Sweating Ebooks Catalog
Sweat is mostly water with a varying amount of dissolved substances, such as sodium and chloride. In addition, a little potassium, calcium, iron, and other minerals are found in sweat, but the levels of these substances is much lower than sodium and chloride. Sweating is a principal means of getting rid of body heat and keeping the body from overheating. Each liter of sweat can remove 580 calories of heat from the body. Other methods of removing heat from our body include convection, conduction, and radiation (Table 7.1). When core body temperature, which is the temperature in and around our vital organs increases, our brain prompts sweating. Sweating is also stimulated by circulating epinephrine, which is released into the blood by our adrenal glands during exercise. This helps us understand why we sweat more when we exercise and why we sweat even more while Sweating is increased relative to the intensity of exercise and or as temperature increases. Sweating is our principal mean of...
Typically sweating occurs all the time, at least to some degree, even if you are not moving and the temperature seems comfortable. For instance, if you are sitting in your living room, the sweating process is still lightly stimulated by the brain to rid excessive heat. At this low level, sweating might only yield two cups in an entire day (500 ml) Therefore, as that produced sweat moves slowly through the tubes, practically all of the sodium and chloride are brought back into our body along with some water. This results in only tiny amounts of water reaching our skin. In fact, you probably do not even realize that you are sweating, but you are. Oppositely, in a warmer environment and or during exercise, when sweating is more strongly stimulated, it becomes very noticeable.
For a well nourished and hydrated weight-training athlete, there is probably no need for a sport drink unless he or she is training for longer periods and sweating profusely. The need for sport drinks for endurance athletes largely depends on the duration of exercise and the environmental conditions. Generally, for single shorter events such as 5-kilometer runs and half-hour aerobic sessions there isn't a need. However, as an event or training session becomes longer, the need increases. For bouts lasting an hour or more, water replacement is certainly necessary and performance can be enhanced by a sport drink. Even athletes competing in intermittent action sports such as soccer, ice hockey, and football can benefit from a sport drink. These sports are powered by muscle glycogen and a sport drink can improve performance in repeated sprinting efforts. Plus for sports such as ice hockey and football uniforms and gear can increase sweating and thus the need for fluid to maintain optimal...
Athlete Adaptation Sodium is generally not a concern for individuals who are active. In fact, too little sodium for those who are sweating poses more health risk than too much sodium. Athletes can easily enjoy foods that contain liberal amounts of sodium, such as snack chips and pretzels as well as processed foods, without worry.
Fluid balance, like energy balance, is determined by the ratio of fluid losses to fluid intakes. With dehydration, water loss exceeds intake and fluid balance becomes negative. The average person loses 1,000 ml to 2,300 ml (1.0 to 2.4 quarts) of water per day. This water is lost in the urine, in stools, in sweat, and through breathing. When activity levels are low, most fluids are lost through the urine. When activity levels are high or the temperature is high, most of the fluid is lost through sweat. In fact, up to 2,000 ml (2.1 quarts) per hour can be lost through sweating, depending on the temperature. To maintain fluid balance you must consume enough fluids each day from
When it is normal and healthy, the body maintains water at a constant level. A number of mechanisms, including the sensation of thirst, operate to keep body water content within narrow limits. There are, of course, conditions in which the various body mechanisms for regulating water balance do not work, such as severe vomiting, diarrhea, excessive bleeding, high fever, burns, and excessive perspiration. In these situations, large amounts of fluids and minerals are lost. These conditions are medical problems that should be managed by a physician. excrete a certain amount each day (about 2 cups) to eliminate waste products generated by the body's metabolic actions. In addition to urine, air released from the lungs contains some water, and evaporation that occurs on the skin (when one is sweating or not sweating) contains water as well. 6. Water helps you maintain normal temperatures by sweating.
Just as you clean your apartment or house and determine what kind of stuff is found within your living area, so too will our cells clean and regulate the contents in their intracellular fluid. This allows each cell to maintain an optimal operating environment. Scientists often use the term homeostasis to describe the efforts associated with the maintenance of this optimal environment. Furthermore, just as it is the responsibility of each cell to maintain its own ideal internal environment at the same time many of our organs work in concert to regulate the environment within our body as a whole. These organs include the kidneys, lungs, skin, and liver. Many of our most basic functions, such as breathing, sweating, urinating, digesting, and the pumping of our heart, are actually functions dedicated to homeostasis (Table 2.2). Therefore, homeo-stasis is the housekeeping efforts of all our cells working individually as well as together to provide an environment conducive to optimal...
Water has the capability to absorb heat to keep us from overheating (hyperthermia) as well as help keep us from overcooling (hypothermia). In comparison with other materials, water can absorb a lot of heat before its own temperature changes. This allows body water to absorb the heat generated during normal metabolism and during times of extra heat production such as exercise. Water then facilitates the removal of extra heat from our body by sweating (discussed below). On the other hand water can give up heat to help keep tissue warm when we are in cooler environments.
No In general women lose less sweat than men do. It is thought that this is due to more economical sweating. An additional factor is that women simply have a lower body weight than most men, producing less sweat at the same absolute workload. Women should drink enough to compensate for their sweat losses bearing in mind that these are less than in men. The best way to find out the individual fluid needs is frequently to take body weight before and after exercise and to correct for fluid intake. Any body weight loss of 1 kg means a real fluid deficit.
. . . if a few cold beers on a hot day are as good as water to replace fluids Not really. Alcohol is a mild diuretic, which increases urine output and so promotes dehy-dration-not the best fluid replacement when you're sweating If you enjoy a beer, drink water, too. . . . what's rooibos tea Pronounced ROY-boss, rooibos isn't a tea at all, but instead a herbal brew. First popularized in South Africa, this red brew in nutty, flowery, and fruity flavors is purported to have antioxidant benefits. Research doesn't back up the advertised claims. Like other herbals, be cautious.
(about 6 cups of coffee) or more daily, caffeine can cause nervousness, sweating, tenseness, an upset stomach, anxiety, and insomnia. It can also prevent clear thinking and increase the side effects of certain medications. This level of caffeine intake represents a significant health risk.
Heat, intense physical activity (profuse sweating), diarrhea, vomiting, and excessive urination can all cause excessive fluid loss. A runner can sweat off six cups of fluid in an hour. Mild dehydration occurs with a loss of 5 percent or less of a person's bodily fluids, moderate dehydration is a loss of 5 to 10 percent of a person's bodily fluids, and severe dehydration is a loss of 10 to 15 percent of fluids. Severe dehydration can cause death. Some clinical signs of dehydration include dry skin, less frequent urination, fatigue, light-headedness, dark-colored urine, dry mouth, and lack of skin elasticity. Often, increased fluid intake and replacement of lost electrolytes are sufficient oral rehydration therapy for mild dehydration. However, the cause of dehydration has to be addressed for further improvement. In cases of severe dehydration, it may be necessary to hospitalize the person and restore fluid balance through intravenous fluid replacement.
We sweat throughout the day to help remove extra body heat produced by normal cell operations, but most of time we do not even notice it because it is so minimal. For an adult this can add up to about V liter or 2 cups (see Figure 7.2). However, when we exercise or find ourselves in a hot environment, sweating certainly becomes more obvious. This is especially true if it is humid. Increased moisture in the air can hinder the evaporation process, allowing sweat to accumulate on our skin.
The symptoms of food allergy vary widely from person to person. Food allergies can also cause a severe clinical reaction known as anaphylaxis, which can result in death. Anaphylaxis may be characterized by throat and lip swelling, shortness of breath, sweating, itching, and feeling very faint.
Humans dissipate the heat generated during intense exercise (as well as the heat accumulated from a hot environment) by sweating. As beads of sweat form on the skin, this sweat evaporates, throwing heat into the environment, and beginning the process of cooling the body. Of course, as this water is brought out to the surface, the body's reserve of water is diminished. Further, electrolytes - minerals such as sodium and potassium - are also lost during this process.
Listlessness, fatigue, exhaustion, cold extremities, pale glowing face, dyspnea (shortness of breath) on exertion, chest tightness in the area of the heart, sometimes racing heart with sensation of extreme heart beats, shortness of breath, spontaneous sweating. Heart blood vacuity generally has the same causes as general blood vacuity or liver blood acuity. Loss of blood, for example during childbirth, too much stress, extreme physical activity (sweating weakens qi and yang energy), lingering emotional problems, especially sadness and anger, all damage yin.
During hard exercise, your muscles can generate 20 times more heat than when you are at rest. You dissipate that heat by sweating. As the sweat evaporates, it cools the skin. This in turn cools the blood, which cools the inner body. If you did not sweat, you could cook yourself to death. A body temperature higher than 106 degrees Fahrenheit (41 degrees Celsius) damages the cells. At 107.6 degrees Fahrenheit (42 degrees Celsius), cell protein coagulates (as egg whites do when they cook), and the cell dies. This is one serious reason why you shouldn't push yourself beyond your limits in very hot weather. Some people sweat a lot. For example, James had to put a towel under the exercise bike to mop the sweat that dripped from his body. Although it was a source of embarrassment, I reminded James that sweating is good. It's the body's way of dissipating heat and maintaining a constant internal temperature (98.6 degrees Fahrenheit 37 degrees Celsius).
Rehydration solutions for athletes are generally designed to replace fluid and minerals lost by sweating and also limited amounts of energy in the form of CHO. All three substances are either lost or used during endurance exercise. Higher exercise intensities require a higher degree of energy production for which CHO as energy source is most suitable. Accordingly, with higher exercise intensities, more metabolic heat will be produced. Consequently sweat rate will be increased, as will the excretion of electrolytes. The longer the exercise lasts, the larger the amount of fluid, electrolytes and CHO needed to replace the losses. Progressive fluid loss from the body, by means of sweating and breathing, is associated with a decreased blood volume and blood flow through the extremities. Also a reduction in sweating and heat dissipation may result from this. Under circumstances of high intensity work in the heat, it may lead to heat stroke and collapse.
Clearly, the major concerns during operations in a warm or hot environment are maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance. Any time you have to work or exercise in the heat, you will lose water and electrolytes through sweating. The amount of sweat produced depends on Working at a high work rate in hot humid surroundings results in the very high fluid and electrolyte losses. You can easily lose one to two quarts per hour and even more when special clothing, such as chemical protective gear, is required. The highest sweating rate ever reported was 4 quarts per hour. Failure to replace fluids lost through sweating will result in dehydration and eventually heat injury (see Chapters 6 and 11 for additional information on dehydration). Forced drinking is recommended throughout training in a warm environment since your normal thirst mechanism will not ensure adequate fluid replacement. Becoming dehydrated in cold environments is very easy because of the cold-induced increase in urine output,...
Sweating increases the need for sodium because the average sodium loss ranges from 460 to 1,840 mg of sodium per liter of sweat and can only get worse in the heat. hand, occur during prolonged exercise in hot conditions and may have more to do with large losses of fluid and sodium due to heavy sweating. Endurance athletes tend to be heavy sweaters who lose large amount of sodium through sweat.
An imbalance in one of the two opposite poles invariably influences the other pole, which changes the relationship of the poles to each other. With yang surplus, yin gets reduced or consumed. For example, high fever (yang repletion) results in a weakening of the body (reduced yin) through intense sweating. There are four basic forms of imbalance, which according to TCM explain essential physiological and pathophysiological processes.
After you finish a hard workout, your top dietary priority should be to replace the fluids you lost by sweating so that your body can get back into water balance. As discussed in chapter 8, if you will be doing exercise that puts you at risk of becoming underhydrated, you should know your sweat rate. The goal is to drink on a schedule and lose no more than 2 percent of your body weight (e.g., 3 pounds for a 150-pound person). Ideally, you will have minimized dehydration during the event but that can be hard to do during intense exercise.
Mental worry, tension, muscle aches, nervous stomach, sweating. May or may not be chronic. But when you engage in exercise, your anxiety seems to magically disappear. But it's not magic. Even though the effect lasts for a few hours, now you know how you can get rid of anxiety. You become a more relaxed person.
Hydration is crucial for all athletes, but masters athletes have to pay special attention to fluid intake. Aging brings physiologic changes to thirst sensation, sweating rates, renal adaptation to altered fluid and electrolyte status, and blood flow responses that can impair thermoregulation in older athletes 38 . Although no data are published to recommend a specific fluid plan or preferred beverages, guidelines for younger athletes can be used to establish a fluid plan for masters athletes. Assessing the athlete's daily fluid intake and monitoring
As discussed in Chapter 7, sweat is a combination of mostly water and electrolytes. Water is needed to help remove the excessive heat generated from the body during exercise. One liter of sweat allows for the removal of 580 calories of heat from the body. So, if an activity such as running for 2 hours generates about 900 calories of heat, then theoretically about 1.5 liters of sweat may have been lost. The primary electrolytes lost from the body in sweat are sodium and chloride. However, their concentration in sweat is lower than in the plasma of the blood. Thus, sweat is dilute compared to blood. Even when someone is sweating profusely, the sodium and chloride content may be only about one-half of the concentration of human blood plasma.
Water is a critical nutrient for the athlete in training and competition. Working muscles produce heat, and water is lost during exercise as the body attempts to keep cool and dissipates heat through sweating. Ninety minutes of strenuous exercise in a 70-kg athlete will produce sweat water losses of 1.5-3.0 kg, depending on air temperature and hu-midity.5 lost, heavy sweating for periods of up to 2-3 hours has no significant effects on electrolyte concentrations in the body.5 Although salt (sodium chloride) tablets are often promoted for athletes, only in ultra-long endurance events do electrolyte losses in sweat become significant. A single post-exercise meal replaces all the electrolytes lost in moderate exercise.
HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) was identified in 1983 by the French scientist Luc Montagier and his staff at the Pasteur Institute in Paris. Ever since that discovery, scientists have been searching for ways to treat those infected with HIV, and to produce a vaccine to prevent its spread. While new antiviral treatments have been developed, a vaccine has yet to be found. HIV causes AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome), an unpredictable condition that may progress over many years and is characterized by a slow deterioration of the immune system. Once an individual becomes infected (HIV has infected the target cells) it takes a week or more before the virus is spread throughout the body's blood and lymph system. The immune system responds by turning out HIV antibodies in about six to eighteen weeks. The progression of HIV infection to AIDS may take several years. In the initial period, prolonged (2-4 weeks) flu-like symptoms may appear. This is followed by an asymptomatic period...
Plasma ceruloplasmin as well as serum copper levels have been reported to increase as a result of exercise in some studies, but to remain unchanged or to decrease in other studies (5). Several factors such as differences in training status, type of exercise, degree of plasma volume change or true copper status may account for this. Copper is lost in significant quantities with sweat (93). Therefore, it has been suggested that repeated large sweat losses may impair copper status and that an increased dietary copper intake may be required to offset the losses induced by sustained sweating (4, 5). Thus the normal RDA for copper as determined for sedentary people may be too low for athletes.
Because of the abundance of sodium in the human diet, the potential for a deficiency is somewhat low. However, certain situations may place some people at a greater risk. These include eating a very low-sodium diet in conjunction with excessive sweating and or chronic diarrhea. Still, even under these conditions deficiency is very rare. Excessive sweating makes us thirsty and beverages would probably include some sodium. Furthermore, since the sodium concentration in our sweat is lower than in our blood it would take the loss of a couple of pounds of body weight in the form of sweat before any distress would occur.
In light of Americans' heavy use of salt in food manufacturing, processing, and seasoning in the kitchen and at the table, chloride deficiencies are very rare. As mentioned, Western diets contain many times the estimated minimum requirement for chloride. Thus the potential for deficiency is believed to be rather low and is rarely seen. However, heavy, prolonged sweating can cause excessive loss of chloride which in turn could impact the activity of muscle and the nervous system. However the consumption of food and beverages will recover lost chloride. Sport drinks and related products provide chloride for endurance athletes.
John Stith Pemberton was born in Knoxville, Georgia, and spent his childhood in Rome, Georgia. He graduated from Southern Botanico Medical College of Georgia in 1850. Pemberton briefly practiced as a traditional Thomsonian steam doctor, modeled after Samuel Thomson's Complete System of Practice as outlined in his book New Guide to Health. Steam doctors used steam baths, herbs, and other products to induce sweating, which they believed would restore the body to proper health. Pemberton later obtained a degree in pharmacy from a school in Philadelphia. In 1855, Pemberton moved to Columbus, Georgia, with his wife, Anna Eliza Clifford Lewis, and their only son, Charles Ney Pemberton. Here, he practiced primarily as a druggist for fourteen years, though he also performed other medical procedures. Pemberton was a member of the first licensing agency for pharmacists in Georgia.
Depending upon growing conditions, synthesis of fat is especially pronounced during this period (7). Analysis of samples from a fermentation trial in Brazil revealed a gradual increase in starch content of cocoa bean throughout the fermentation. At the start, 5.5 of the bean solids was starch after 6 days when fermentation was concluded, starch accounted for 6.5 of the solid content. The apparent increase in starch content involves the loss of soluble, non-starch solids through exudation, sweating and sugar fermentation, as shown above.
Adrenaline was designed to protect us against the saber-toothed tigers. It mobilizes all sorts of bodily functions. One of the things it does is to dump sugar from the liver into the blood very rapidly. However, adrenline also causes what we call the fight-or-flight reaction, associated with the state of fear. We get a rapid heartbeat, dry mouth, sweating, fear, and a sense of impending doom.
Hypoglycemia is a concern if the woman is ill and consuming inadequate calories. All pregnant women with preexisting diabetes should be aware of hypoglycemia symptoms, which range from sweating, blurred vision, nervousness, anxiety, headache, weakness, or in severe cases, seizures or unconsciousness. The treatment for hypoglycemia depends on the severity of the symptoms. Mild-to-moderate symptoms are treated with 15 g of carbohydrate if the blood glucose level is
