Repairing the body with fitness

Treating PAWS with Exercise
You are hard-wired to avoid pain and seek pleasure. For example, food gives you pleasure, and hunger gives you pain. This is the basic role of your reward system that, put simply, keeps you alive.
During active addiction, the reward system is hijacked by drugs that tell your brain that you are okay even though your body is malnourished, sleep-deprived, and damaged. When drugs are removed from the addicted brain, your body reacts with a series of symptoms as your body starts to heal and regain balance.
This series of symptoms is called Post-Acute-Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS). ESM is built to speed up the healing process and reduce the effects of PAWS. Because exercise is an effective way to repair the effects that addiction has on the brain. In other words, movement activates your bodies built-in system for healing.
PAWS Symptoms Treated w ESM
• Insomnia / sleep disturbance
• Anxiety / depression & fatigue
• Stress sensitivity
• Trouble with thinking / cognition
• Mood swings (overreaction or little / no emotion)

THE SCIENCE OF ESM FITNESS
The 4 Key Protein/Factors Ignited w ESM Fitness
The new science shows that we can grow new brain cells, and ESM helps ignite the process. There are four key proteins, or neurotrophins, released during ESM styled exercise essential for not only repairing the brain but also for creating new brain cells (neurogenesis). The current research shows that Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor, Insulin-like Growth Factor, Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor, and Fibroblast Growth Factor are all released during exercise, and once inside the brain promote stem-cells division to help us repair damaged cells, grow new ones and prime the brain for learning.
Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor: (The Cell Fertilizer)
BDNF is a protein that stimulates the growth and maintenance of neurons in the brain. It’s like Miracle-Gro for the brain, and there is no faster way to release it then with ESM style exercise.
Insulin-like Growth Factor: (The Fuel Supercharger)
IGF-1 is a hormone that works with insulin to deliver glucose (fuel) to muscles and the brain. During ESM workouts, the brain increase uptake of IGF-1 with the help of BDNF. This aids in strengthening neural connections to develop long-term memories.
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor: (The Fuel Pipeline Builder)
VEGF is a protein that is essential for neurogenesis and is released during ESM style workouts. It helps to build new blood vessels to bring fuel to the brain.
Fibroblast Growth Factor: (The Cell Builder)
FGF-2 helps build brain cells in the hippocampus (associated with memory) and is increased during ESM style exercise.

More Than exercise-biological therapy
ESM is part of our True Bio-Psych-Social Model. Tree House is the only program in the world that uses ESM fitness therapy to repair the biological and neurological damage caused by drug abuse. Our fitness therapy has been custom developed at Tree House Recovery to treat addiction by All American athlete Ryan Bain. Most treatment centers use abusable medications to treat the biology of addiction, some provide limited access to a gym. Unlike other centers, Tree House is the only program that provides an individualized, guided fitness therapy that is five days a week for five months. Masking the symptoms caused by addiction doesn’t work; it is like taking aspirin when you have a rock in your shoe. Our fitness therapy repairs the actual damage on a cellular level. Become stronger than you have ever been, repair the damage, and end your addiction for good with the help of ESM.
