View Full Version : Lentation

Lentation is basically a self induced adrenaline rush. It is the act of getting a rush by will and controlling it. Try looking it up on a search engine and click the first link which should be a pdf. It gives the practice and exercises of it. It also creates a slow motion effect. The creator of the article says it is good for fights in which everything is slowed down, but you being able to punch or kick harder and faster, jump higher, run faster, but that is already an effect of an adrenaline rush which is what it basically is.

Here is the link:

Edit: Sorry, but due to too many conditions that will happen when you do this, I have taken it off because you literally are risking your life.

Since you have 96 posts, you're allowed to post a link. Unless the link is giving illegal advice or telling people to do crazy stuff like not eat or sleep for two weeks and go driving with their eyes closed or something like that. Then, no.

None of the above. In fact it mostly trains your mind to go into that point in which you had an adrenaline rush and make it happen now.

I will put the link on top.
Thank you.

Sorry for the double post, but I would also like to tell of the dangers of overdoing the adrenaline. Overdosing is never a good thing, yet you cannot get (so I think) adrenaline from a pill, it is automatically made for defense when fight or flight comes in. This is literally mind over matter meaning if you are able to think of a moment when you had a rush and with your imagination trick your subconscious, then you could have a rush.

you cannot get (so I think) adrenaline from a pill, It's called epinephrine and it can give you a heart attack.

In fact, you can overdose, more or less. Some people, such as myself, have various trauma-related conditions where adrenaline (now known as epinephrine, technically; has been so for more than 20 years) and endorphins (the natural pain killing chemicals released by your own brain) are released inappropriately. In other words, you have a panic attack or flashback or similar event, your brain reacts as if you're in an actual fight-or-flight situation, and suddenly your nervous system is flooded with these chemicals it really didn't need. An adrenaline crash is really uncomfortable to experience, as is an overdose of endorphins (it feels like a hangover, but includes emotional responses in addition to the mental and physical you get with a hangover).

I can't imagine wanting to induce that. I spent years learning how to keep balanced so my poor, trauma-damaged limbic system would NOT freak out and pour fight-or-flight chemicals into my brain and nervous system for no real reason. The come-down is terrible, and it has the tendency to do what I call a "brain wipe". Not fun.

Adrenaline and endorphins produced in response to, say, exercise, on the other hand, is pretty healthy. In fact, exercise can help reduce the instance of inappropriate release of those chemicals. I suspect it's a bit of a retraining of the limbic system to learn when it really IS appropriate.

Anyway. Just some random thoughts on adrenaline (and endorphins).

One other thought. Epinephrine (aka adrenaline, and no, I don't know why biologists keep changing the names of things, but they did it with "alkaline", too, so whatever) is used for some medical purposes. I believe it has to be injected. Just looked it up. Yes. It's a tool for treating various kinds of problems, including some kinds of severe allergic reactions. So, yes, definitely possible to abuse it, and definitely NOT recommended.

from the title i thought lentation was the 40 days of lent where one fasts and takes penitence , god i'm getting old.

the only uses i know for (acceptable) epinephrine requirement are severe cardiac arrest or fatal arrythmias, where cardiac output is low that the patient crashes into hypotensive crisis and requires an emergent shot however this use has been largely obviated ever since safer drugs have come out.
the other use is a fatal anaphylaxis , like severe allergic reaction to seafood or peanuts , where the conducting airways undergo massive inflammation and breathing is impossible and no time is available for anti-histamine onset.
lastly it is also used in dental surgery when a numbing or painkilling agent is given ; the epinephrine shot constricts the gingival blood vessels so that the painkiller isn't "washed away" hence increasing the anesthetics duration of action.
Adverse reactions to adrenaline include palpitations (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palpitation), tachycardia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tachycardia), arrhythmia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrhythmia), anxiety (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anxiety), panic attack (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panic_attack), headache (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headache), tremor (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tremor), hypertension (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypertension), and acute pulmonary edema (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulmonary_edema)
Adrenaline is also downright notorious for precipitating severe anxiety and panic - so much so that most hospitals require a "need for use" category before administration.

My personal opinion is that if adrenaline is used for anything else then life saving emergencies , it puts the entire physiological balance out of whack , and achieving equilibrium for the body to go back to it's pre-use state is a long and hard battle .

I shall remove the link for it sounds too dangerous.

Epinephrine (aka adrenaline, and no, I don't know why biologists keep changing the names of things, but they did it with "alkaline", too, so whatever) is used for some medical purposes.

Adrenaline = Adrenal Medulla = the pyramid like glands sitting on top of the kidneys .
Epienphrine/NorEpinephrine = Neurotransmittor = Released from terminal nerve junctions.

Norepinephrine triggers reactions in the brain since it is a psychoactive, while the epinephrine does not share the same property. This property is the main reason why norepinephrine is often used as a component for antidepressant medicines. Together with serotonin, the norepinephrine has a positive effect in the brain which enhances both mood and behavior.
Though epinephrine and adrenaline are interchangeable terms in a number of countries, the preferred name for the hormone changes from nation to nation. In the United States, for example, epinephrine is the preferred term, though adrenaline is often used when discussing the hormone outside of the medical profession. An adrenaline junkie, for example, is a person who seeks thrills for the enjoyment of the feeling of fight or flight reaction created by the natural release of epinephrine.In the United Kingdom, on the other hand, the standard term is still adrenaline, and epinephrine is not officially recognized.

I always thought that the difference was that one was endogenous and the other synthesized. Learn something every day.

I was mostly joking about biologists changing the names of everything. I've done some university level biology (though not a lot, and not for a long time), and I did find it kinda frustrating to have to re-learn the chemicals/hormones/enzymes/whatever that I already was familiar with. And the whole alkaline/base thing, too. That's weird, as well. (Mind you, historians are always changing their minds about everything, so I'm not picking on biologists, especially. It's just my weird sense of humour. ;))
