His research has been featured in numerous international media, including The New York Times, BBC, CNN and HuffPost. .The first Japanese translation of a book that summarizes the contents in an easy-to-understand way for the general public“Depression disappears with exercise: method of resetting “mental disorders” clarified by neuroscience”will be released on September 7.

Why exercise is good for “panic attacks”
For people prone to panic attacks, the benefits of vigorous exercise far outweigh the benefits of light exercise.
Why? High-intensity exercise is the exposure therapy they needIt’s high-intensity exercise exposes people with panic disorder to the symptoms they fear most, such as heart palpitations and shortness of breath.
In fact, new research shows that people with panic disorder can tolerate and benefit from high-intensity interval training (HIIT).
The researchers used a low-volume HIIT menu consisting of:
・High intensity exercise for 1 minute (hard work)
– 1 minute of low intensity exercise (moves easily)
According to the calculation, doing this HIIT menu for only 20 minutes,10 exposure therapy sessionsIt will be the same as the one you received. It is a great efficiency.
Just 12 Days of Exercise Significantly Improves Panic Attacks
In this study, the HIIT menu was followed every other day for 12 days. A patient’s heart rate during vigorous exercise is 77-95% of the maximum heart rate, which is considered strenuous exercise.
At the end of the 12-day period, patients will have received a total of 60 sessions of exposure therapy. With such intensive treatment,Severity of panic attacks reduced by 40% in just 12 daysIt is not a surprise. Just by moving your body, you can heal your mind.
