exercise as medicine

Monday, May 10, 2010

My hubby and I went to the doctor last week. Hubby has had by-pass surgery on one leg, and double by-pass surgery on the heart. His other leg has been cramping up and has some sores on the foot. So instead of just prescribing another pill, the doctor told him to walk on the treadmill EVERY day ( he has been doing it twice a week because we do the exercising together.) The doctor told me that my exercise program is doing more to keep me healthy than anything he could do.
So just another confirmation that staying active really helps.
