Every Tuesday of every week, I transform from mild mannered bulldog working for a great suburban area middle and high school, into The Endorphinator! The Endorphinator! elevator of spirits and endorphins whenever I arrive on three wheels into patient’s rooms.

The Endorphinator!  And who disguised as a somewhat lethargic, shy and retiring working bulldog, when my energy is suddenly zapped by the depression of a dispirited child, this toxic Goodwill Energy drain impels me to instantaneously transform into The Endorphinator!
The Endorphinator-! Banisher of ill will energy.  Brandisher of Goodwill energy. Lifter of Human spirits.  Zapping unhappy People with feel good Endorphins from my Human Endorphin injectors, I make people smile. Elevating endorphins one Human- being at a time.
So just what are endorphins, you ask? Let’s find out.
Endorphins are small, protein molecules produced in People by cells in their nervous systems. An important role of endorphins is to work with analgesia-producing or pain killing receptors located in the brain, spinal cord, and other nerve endings. Endorphins have been shown to . . .

Control persistent pain
Control the craving for chocolate and potentially addictive substances
Control feelings of stress and frustration
Regulate the production of growth and sex hormones
Reduce symptoms associated with eating disorders

Endorphins are produced naturally by the human body. They are possibly the best (and most legal way) to experience a natural high and are manufactured by the body to reduce stress and relieve pain.

Endorphins are naturally produced by activities like meditation, deep breathing, uproarious laughter, and spicy food! All hot chilies produce endorphins and chocolate causes an endorphin rush, and is, paws down, *the* most popular endorphin-producing food on earth!

Naturally good for health, endorphins are believed to produce four key effects on the human body and mind:

They enhance and boost the immune system against diseases and kill cancer cells
They relieve pain,
They reduce stress, and
They postpone the aging process.

Prolonged, continuous exercise like running, long-distance swimming, aerobics, cycling or cross-country skiing contribute to increased production and release of endorphins, resulting in an increased sense of euphoria. Endorphins make you feel good! Endorphins make you laugh!

Music and the regular practice of meditation help the body produce endorphins for a feeling of well being. Current research has shown chronic stress, anger and depression cause the body to manufacture chemicals that can inhibit the healing process and shorten life expectancy, while euphoria protects us from stress, illness and premature death.

Some major ways we experience a greater sense of joy and well being in our lives: daily relaxation, exercise, “pointless” recreational activities, tapping into our dreams, guiltless goofing off, experiencing pleasure in little things, public and private displays of affection, sex without guilt, greater laughter and additional sources of merriment.
