Do you have a chronic pain or chronic health issue or concern? Do you know someone who does?
Yes, there is a want to have that “fixed” yet in the journey to living better with chronic pain or a chronic health issue, for example hypertension, there are a lot of relationships that are occurring at once in the human body …
ok, maybe not as complex as this one, yet an important relationship we need to understand about and how it plays an important role in recovery, rehabilitation, and helping live better is metabolism.
What is Metabolism?
Do “calories” really count? Well, yes they do, but they’re not the only thing that matters when it comes to how much you weigh and how much energy you have. In other words it’s all about your metabolism.
In a nutshell metabolism is how you take in oxygen and food and use them for energy, heat, and storage. But what’s really more important is how fast your metabolism works i.e. your “metabolic rate”. And you may have heard at your doctor’s office or your other health care professional of Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) and Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE), which are ways to measure your metabolic rate.
But, what you may really want to know is what affects your metabolic rate, and how can you use that to your advantage. Of course it’s not just about how much you eat but also your hormones, body composition, and even what you eat counts!
