Want to live long, healthy and strong, or avoid disease and premature death? It’s possible. There is a formula for a healthy life and it is summed up in one word: Exercise.

Exercise brings health; lack of exercise promotes disease. Even if you already have a disease or are in poor health, exercise can help to minimise, control or manage your health condition. Exercise also helps you feel better – physically, emotionally and mentally. It improves your body’s flexibility, strength and mobility.

This book provides the A-Z of what medical science knows about exercise, health and disease. It also shows you how to exercise for the various illnesses.
