The average adult is on 2 or more medications, over 65 that doubles. Blood pressure, bone density, mood control, thyroid control, cholesterol, pain relievers and on the list goes. The miracle of medicine is being abused….serious side-effects are being ignored.
People tend to think “exercise as medicine” is an exaggerated phrase. The strength of exercise has been sadly underestimated but consider this straightforward fact:
“That which protects you from stress (strength and endurance) is literally medicinal by definition.”
Keeping your body in shape through strength, nutrition, regular activity and sleep hygiene is medicine. Customized (prescription like) amounts, formats and applications of these are health enhancing and life saving, just like traditional medicine…minus the side effects.
Get wise, get strong – have a better 2022!
