I think all doctors recommended exercise. I prescribe an exercise program to increase heart and lung function as well as building muscle and promoting losing weight.
Exercise first must fit into a person’s lifestyle, so that it is not too time consuming. It must be enjoyable and incorporate different forms of exercise (swimming, bicycle, etc) and easy to do almost anywhere.
Recently it was discovered that exercise causes the muscles to release hormone like substances called Myokines that can build the immune system and decrease inflammation.
Al Sears, MD describes such a program in a book titled pace. It is Progressive Accelerated Cardiovascular Exercise and fits all of the above stipulations. I use it and recommend it. As put forth in the forward of the book by Jonathan V Wright, MD, it follows nature’s exercise pattern for humans.
For the majority of man’s time on earth, the usual human exercise pattern has been running as fast as possible for only as long as necessary to catch lunch or avoid being lunch. Weight lifting was done only when there was actual work to do.
There were no marathon runners or jogging clubs in the caveman’s time Let us help you establish a routine that you can follow and enjoy and at the same time build heart and lung reserve, build muscle and lose weight.
