If you are able to walk, try walking at least 10min every day. If you can walk, work up to 10-20min of vigorous walking 3-5x’s a week. If you are able to jog, try to jog for 15min 3-5’x a week with intermittent fast 15sec runs every 5min or so.
Wherever you are start there! Building an exercise regime will help fast track disease reversal and healing. Exercise forces inflammatory disease causing chemicals out of your body more quickly than sitting.
