Exercise is Best DRUG for preventing common ailments!

cleanseshakeMe and LeAnne have been doing a 3 DAY CLEANSE.  And this was her idea.  She got the actual guidelines from Dr. Oz.  Check out the pic and you will see the “dinner shake” and she made something special and “extra” for me in the way of avocado and chopped tomatoes.  I recommend doing short “Fasts” and or “Cleanses” from time to time as they can really promote improved Health.  I will get you more info on this specific one a little later. 

Now on to the topic of EXERCISE.  We all know it is good for us.  We all know it is something we should include into our “Daily Routine”.  We all have heard this advice over and over and over.  And of course here at God-Built we highly recommend Exericse for all!  Even though you have heard this “advice” many times, I want you to take a good and hard look at this interesting and VALUABLE info about EXERCISE that I was just reading on Mercola.com.  This could give you a little more Inspiration and Motivation!  Check it out:

“In fact, researchers recently suggested that exercise is “the best preventive drug” for many common ailments, from psychiatric disorders to heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.1 According to Jordan Metzl, a sports-medicine physician at New York City’s Hospital for Special Surgery and author of The Exercise Cure:

“Exercise is the best preventive drug we have, and everybody needs to take that medicine.”

And, as stated by Dr. Timothy Church,2 director of preventive medicine research at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge:

“Exercise strengthens the entire human machine — the heart, the brain, the blood vessels, the bones, the muscles. The most important thing you can do for your long-term health is lead an active life.”


“A recent meta-review conducted by researchers at Harvard and Stanford3 compared the effectiveness of exercise versus drug interventions on mortality outcomes for diabetes, coronary heart disease, heart failure, and stroke. After reviewing 305 randomized controlled trials, which included nearly 339,300 people, they found “no statistically detectable differences” between physical activity and medications for prediabetes and heart disease.”

Wow!! Did you read all that?  You may want to go back and read it over again.  These Doctors are literally saying that just plain ole EXERCISE is the BEST PREVENTATIVE DRUG we have for many common physical ailments!!  Of course this isnt “new” news, but it does bring the facts about the many Benefits of Exercise more to light for us all to see. 

Now I realize that all this info about Exercise will probably not make the actual ACT of EXERCISING any easier, but I expect that it will give you more interest in finding a way to start Exercising if you are not already doing so.  And remember if you are not Exercising now, it really is pretty simple and requires very MINIMUM TIME!  Despite what we were all taught for years, you dont have to exericse 20, 30, or 60 minutes for it to be Beneficial.  No, No, No!  5 Minutes of moderate to intense Exercise done 3+ times per week can be very beneficial!!  So again, it does not take much time.  Yes if you want to workout longer then great.  Do it.  But until you actually will take those longer sessions to workout, Go AHEAD NOW AND START WITH 5 MINUTES A DAY!!  Get on it dog’on it!
