    Welcome to the forum, but well, like you seem to be, you know, into woo and pseudoscience, you are unlikely to get a you know, answer from a science forum other than, like, it's all made up innit

    As requested - the scientific view:
    spiritual
    Not science.

    how the body gets energy from like the life energy
    What?

    chakra system
    Unsupported rubbish.

    sexual energy
    Nonsense.

    Does that help?

    Well, this is off to a good start.

    Feel free to ask the questions you want to ask, just be prepared to hear answers you probably don't want to hear.

    Thanks everyone i know this is all unknown things but i want to understand the scientific view of sexual desire and how do we get aroused if there is no sexual energy ecause i read we get chemical energy from food we eat so when we excersice we burn these energies but does that apply to sex also , i mean is there any energy behind sex ?

    We get aroused due to the release of a cocktail of hormones. This requires a net expenditure of energy so it does burn calories.

    Having sex uses energy.
    Namely, the energy you got from eating.

    Thank you guys i was a bit afraid of the idea of having bottled up sexual energy when having desire but not acting on it because even though i am not a 100% believer of eastern philosophies and the new age concepts but the internet got me too confused after reading about it and there is too much mixed informations about it and also alot of different energies life chi and chakras so i just wanted a clear answer that will prove all these are not true and at least i can stop worrying about it too much, so in science there one energy in the body which we do all the physical and mental amd sexual functions, right?

    "Bottled up sexual energy" sounds like a pseudoscience term for the discrepancy between the body's desire to experience sexual activity and the body's ability to experience sexual activity.

    This may come across as glib and dismissive 1 but you can pretty much discount EVERYTHING posted on "new age" sites, and, for that matter, Eastern philosophy ones too if they mention science in conjunction (especially "quantum") with it.
    While some of them may have a smidgeon of validity, you won't go far wrong 4 in doing so.

    3 Bah humbug!
    4 And you'd always be far better off approaching it from a science POV anyway.

    The Third Policeman by Flann O'Brien (aka Myles na gCopaleen, Brother Barnabas, George Knowall and Brian Ó Nualláin) has a similar tendency and is well worth reading.

    In exactly the same way in that there is no "leg energy" but we can still stand up when we want to.

    Well you could try reading this paper: http://psychology.concordia.ca/fac/p...Health-Rep.pdf

    Though I suspect that, by the time you've finished, any "sexual energy" you thought you had will have drained away.

    A bit like the effect I've always thought must take place in people by the time they've blown up one of those inflatable sex dolls - too ill for anything other than sitting down for half an hour….

    Why do you think "sexual energy" is different to any other biochemical energy?

    Be VERY careful about non-science sources that talk of "energy" or "vibrations" It is nearly always pseudoscientific rubbish. Energy has a precise meaning in science which has nothing to do with how an individual feels: it is something to be objectively measured and is related to capacity to do work (apply a force through a distance).

    "Sexual energy" is a term one might encounter in literature, as indicating someone who either inspires, or has a lot of, sexual desire, but this is not scientific use of the term.

    Hormone cocktails.

    There is no more a special energy behind our drive to experience sexual activity than there is a behind puberty or menstruation.

    No, not in the scientific sense of energy, no. Energy in its literary sense is another thing - valid in its own terms of course, but not really related to energy as understood in science.

    The problem comes with "energy medicines", "life energy" and other bogus notions that confuse the literary sense with the scientific one. You won't find much support for chakras and things of that ilk in this forum, because they have no apparent foundation in science and the way they are explained is nonsense, from a scientific viewpoint.

    Join the crowd. You might be confused because there is no logic to support ideas that are often presented in old world medicine or views on wellness. The notions often expressed in these ideas cannot be reconciled using science. An attempt to do so will end in frustration.

    It's not just the Chinese and Indian "systems" of thought. There were lots of pre-scientific / non-scientific notions similar to this in common use though much less now than 50 or more years ago.

    I'd have thought the Greek/Mediaeval idea of the four humours (blood, phlegm, black bile, yellow bile) would be a nice example of pre-scientific notions of this sort.

    Something you should also consider is that these ideas were, usually, honest attempts to explain observations. Some people, it was observed had a lot of sexual energy. Others had very little. The sexual energy of individuals varied over time, both short and long periods. Why was this? Philosophers and others came up with explanations that seemed to them reasonable.

    As we developed the scientific method and investigated sexuality and other aspects of biology we learned that these ideas were, for the most part, foolish. Unfortunately, many people delight in these outdated ideas because they sound exciting and sometimes even logical. But they are not supported by proper, systematic observation or experiment.

    Edit: I am no expert on human physiology, but as far as I know the body - certainly the normal body - does not generate excess blood and therefore has no need to excrete it. The blood is subject to continuous removal of damaged blood cells and their replenishment. These processes occur in various parts of the body.

    What do you mean by "excess" blood? Surely there isn't any, is there? Why do you think there would be?

    If there is excess water in the body, the kidneys excrete it. Do you mean that or something else?

    Eh? We don't produce "excess" blood. If you're "excreting" blood, something is wrong.

    But the blood lost in menstruation is not 'excess' and can even lead to anemia. Reno88, we do not normally produce excess blood or other body fluids. The body has multiple hormonal, neurologic, and vascular feedback loops that maintain homeostasis (balance) between production and degredation of the various fluids and tissues. There is one medical disease that causes and 'excess' of blood, called polycythemia. The production of blood exceeds it's breakdown, so we have to take blood from them.

    Can therapeutic agents not be used as a solution, rather than bloodletting?

    There is also haemochromatosis, an accumulation of iron, which can also be treated by bloodletting (phlebotomy).

    Not really. I have a friend who has polycythemia. There are medications which help, but "giving" blood is the best and quickest way to improve her health status at various times.

    If you want to know what having "too much" blood is like, imagine your doctor's reaction when drawing blood for a test - and the blood sets solid in the tube instantly.

    The thought of bloodletting makes me cringe. I can imagine that the method nowadays for withdrawing blood is similar to the method of blood donation, but bloodletting has a long history and the methods as used until the beginning of the 20th century were not that friendly.

    I quote from an BCMJ article:
    Bloodletting was divided into a generalized method done by venesection and arteriotomy, and a localized method done by scarification with cupping and leeches. Venesection was the most common procedure and usually involved the median cubital vein at the elbow, but many different veins could be used.
    The main instruments for this technique were called lancets and fleams. Thumb lancets were small sharp-pointed, two-edged instruments often with an ivory or tortoise shell case that the physician could carry in his pocket. Fleams were usually devices with multiple, variably sized blades that folded into a case like a pocketknife.
    Localized bloodletting often involved scarification, which meant scraping the skin with a cube-shaped brass box containing multiple small knives, followed by cupping, which involved placing a dome-shaped glass over the skin and extracting the air by suction or prior heating.

    I am sorry for your friend. I hope she does not suffer from this seemingly untreatable condition.

    I am sorry for your friend. I hope she does not suffer from this seemingly untreatable condition.
    There certainly isn't any cure worth the name. But she's survived 15 years since she was diagnosed with leukemia ... the polycythemia was identified when she was very unwell during her treatment. It turns out she's very likely had it in a mild form all her life. But now it's the polycythemia that's life-threatening rather than the leukemia which seems to have gone into permanent remission.

    She's just very careful, she has regular check-ups and she's very ready to go to her doctors promptly as soon as anything seems out of whack.

    Hydroxyurea can help suppress bone marrow production of blood products, but it has some side effects. There are newer medications coming down the pike, so treatment may change in the future. Hemochromatosis is another blood/liver disease where bloodletting is essential to decreasing the level of iron in the body. It is due to an inherited abnormality in iron metabolism where the body retains more iron than it should. Untreated, it eventually leads to liver cirrhosis.

    Oh, and I forgot.

    There is a treatment for polycythemia - not sure whether it only applies to people who've had leukemia - bone marrow transplant.

    No!!!!

    You don't have a diagnosis of polycythemia from a qualified person. For all you or anyone else knows, you might be susceptible to anaemia in which case blood letting is an extremely bad idea.

    It Might Kill You.

    Apart from that, deliberately cutting into your body is a surefire way to expose yourself to infection. Even if the blood loss doesn't make you sick, infection most certainly will. You're only 25. You really don't want to risk making yourself MRSA positive at such a young age. You have no way of knowing what accidents, injuries or illnesses you might encounter in the next 50+ years. Give yourself the best chance of surviving illness or surgery by staying healthy the best way.

    The best way consists of
    - eating well

    - sleeping well on a daily basis, not trying to make up for sleep deficits on weekends or the like

    - keep up to date with vaccinations and booster shots

    - look after your teeth.
    1) that means go to the dentist for check-ups every year without fail.
    2) Remember there's now fairly strong evidence that bad oral health is linked to heart problems.

    - regular health checks with a doctor. At your age, maybe only once every one or two years, but regular anyway.

    If you have any reason to think you have this (or any other problem) or are jut worried about it (hypochondria) then go and see your doctor. Do NOT seek medical advice on Internet forums.

    Maybe you should talk to your doctor about that. An irrational fear could be symptomatic of something else.

    Yes, your body keeps everything in balance: when you drink, the water is eventually excreted; you breathe in and breathe out; you eat and metabolise food and dispose of the rest as waste. And so on.

    Homeostasis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Of course, some diseases can interfere with some of these processes. For example, this is what produces some of the symptoms of infection such as increased temperature (fever).

    But if you are well, there is no real reason to expect that your body will suddenly go "out of balance".

    That is correct. In a healthy person everything is in balance. Ina an unhealthy person there may be some imbalance, but in nearly every instance the body's various sytems will work to bring these back into balance. You mention your blood tests were normal. This is confirmation that, in regard to your blood, you are a healthy person. Stop worrying.

    In the past, it was thought that things (the so-called "humours") being out of balance was the cause of disease.

    Now we know that there are other causes (such as infection, parasites, toxins, genetic disorders, etc) that can lead to an imbalance as a symptom.

    In a manner of speaking, yes. Your blood cells live for about 4 months, after which time they are primarily phagocytized. The components are either excreted through your waste or taken back into the blood stream for reuse. Your blood doesn't naturally "go stale". It is in a constant state of creation, replacement, and disposal.

    Ok guys as all in the body is balanced so left just one question in my mind and this is the body energy .I understand that energy comes from the food we eat and we burn it when we excercise but what happens when some people doesnt excersise does it build up then and bottle up and harms the body or it gets released in other ways ?

    It gets stored as fat. Which can be harmful if excessive (but is an essential component of a healthy body - and even appears to play a role in the immune system).

    Depends really. Remember that just breathing and moving a little takes energy and your brain uses quite a lot of energy all by itself.

    The main thing is not to overeat - or at least not to take in a lot of unnecessary calories. Even if you sit at a desk all day, people who jiggle their feet or their knees or fidget about in other ways use up a lot more energy than those who stay still.

    It shows up as heat. Either sensible heat in the form of an increase in the surrounding air temperature, or latent heat in the form of water vapor in the air from sweating and exhaling moist air.

    I don't know what you mean by "bottling up". Our body stores energy as fat. If you take in a lot of fat and you don't expend it, your body will continue to store it and you will develop obesity and the associated conditions.

    Your body uses energy to perform every single task. So long as your heart is beating, your brain is functioning, your cells are reproducing, then yes, you are using energy. In fact, your brain uses a tremendous amount of energy so as long as it is working, you're burning a substantial amount of what you take in.

    Absolutely. You wouldn't be able to maintain a constant body temperature if you weren't. (And you wouldn't need to shower to get rid of that sweat smell either.)

    Well, if you point a laser thermometer at your skin, or place a normal bulb thermometer under your armpit, you will get a temperature likely above the average environmental temperature in your house (~68 F). We radiate it across our skin and from our internal structures. We do this internally because a certain temperature (and pH) are required to perform many enzymatic processes within our body.

    For the most part yes, but you also loose heat by conduction to solids and liquids (such as swimming) in your breath, urine, and feces.

    When I was involved in a group measuring solar home performance, we'd typical put a 100W incandescent bulb to represent each person in the house.

    Well, it goes in the first instance to into the environment surrounding the organism.

    But eventually, since the Earth is more or less in thermal equilibrium (ignoring climate change effects pro tem) the Earth indeed radiates low temperature heat out into space at about the same rate as it receives incident radiation from the sun.

    The sun is where the energy to power all living things comes from initially, via the plants that provide food for the creatures at the bottom of the food chain.

    Well, you have to understand that you're denying an incredibly strong biological imperative. Your body wants to mate. There is a vast and complex system within our bodies dedicated to reproduction and you're denying it. It won't be easy.

    Pardon my ignorance, but can one not self-gratify and remain celibate?

    Celibacy (ˈsɛl ə bə si):
    "
    1. abstention from sexual relations.
    2. abstention by vow from marriage.
    3. the state of being unmarried.
    "
    (The Free Dictionary)

    Unless masturbation is "a sexual relation with your hand(s)", I am certain that masturbation does not invalidate one's state of being celibate.
    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    It has already been explained that that is nonsense.

    I don't want to say that it won't have psychological impacts. You could become frustrated or agitated if your body has a "need" that you're not satisfying. You would probably have to find another outlet, such as exercise.

    EDIT: Regarding the post above; it is not going to cause you serious harm to deny sex. You cannot get any mental disorders from doing so.

    a) Why do something pointless that you are scared of.

    b) There is no such thing as "sexual energy" to bottle up.

    Nonsense.
    I don't charge for sex.

    Ignore anything preceded by the words "new age".

    Energy is just energy. It is used for different purposes, but there are not different kinds.

    Well, it's your choice.

    The clue is in "new age" (i.e. idiotic cranks with no knowledge of anything).
