more benefits from exercise

Friday, July 31, 2009

Winter is coming to an end in this part of the world and I am so pleased that I have avoided my usual 100 day cough that I suffered during earlier years when I was carrying too much weight. I read recently on someone's blog about how obesity causes inflamation. Following that argument I used to suffer from sinusitus (inflamed sinuses without bacterial infection).
Have not had any sign of this since I began with SP in January this year. Inside the nose are fine hairs called cilla. I think that when I was overweight and not in the best health I could be these hairs were dampened down and did not work efficiently and I was prone to nasal infections etc. Since January I have had no illnesses except for a very mild 2 day cold which did not follow the route of previous years - building up to a painful sinus infection.
Over the years I have spent much time and money trying to find a cure for my blocked sinuses including an operation. So after all this time - found a much better cure.
Healthy eating and exercise. Loved my bike ride to the gym today,
