We all want to feel good, have enough energy, and live a long life but few people understand the science behind #ThinkTherapy.

Optimistic Health Outcomes are important, accomplishing this requires the brain to release endorphins. This is a key element in improving both physical and mental health. 

Endorphins are chemicals released by the brain that reduce stress and create a feeling of happiness and contentment. They help physically by reducing pain, boosting the immune system, positive thoughts, and sleep quality. When endorphins are released they can provide an improved sense of well-being.

The pituitary gland and the hypothalamus — The hypothalamus and the pituitary gland are like orchestra conductors to endorphins. Their job is to tell endocrine glands throughout the body to make the hormones. 

Endorphins –“feel-good hormones” – are peptides created in the brain that bind to the brain’s opiate receptors, reducing the perception of pain & triggering feelings of euphoria.

This class of feel-good chemicals = endocannabinoids the four main neurotransmitters:

  1. Dopamine
  2. Serotonin,
  3. Endorphins
  4. Oxytocin. 

It’s believed that these hormones provide us with positive energy!!! #ThinkTherapy

The most important chemicals/hormones in the brain, provide us with a range of physical and emotional activity that helps us stay alive, these neurotransmitters make us feel more energetic and motivated. 

Endorphin activity releases feel-good hormones that relieve pain by blocking signals to the brain that would otherwise cause discomfort or distress.

Dopamine – another chemical that helps to regulate our moods and motivation by creating a sense of euphoria – pleasure when we accomplish tasks or goals, rewarding the brain.

Serotonin – the happy hormone helps to improve our general well-being and a sense of calmness for relaxation throughout the body., it helps regulate moods which can help with depression

Oxytocin – positive bonding between people and promotes love, trust, relaxation and contentment, as with family or friends.
