Overview

Everyone wants to lose weight, feel better, and live longer. But what if that was just the beginning? What if readers could use specific workouts to prevent, improve, or cure what ails them?

As Dr. Jordan Metzl says, "Exercise is medicine." Now he puts that philosophy—along with cutting-edge research and a motivational bedside manner—into a groundbreaking book delivering a head-to-toe list of maladies that affect quality of life for millions. He then offers the specific exercise prescriptions that will help fix them—from type 2 diabetes to depression, from arthritic joints to PMS, from addiction to sleep apnea.

The Exercise Cure received an amazing amount of publicity in hardcover for its simple approach to weight loss and better health for everyone. The book offers an exhaustive (and exhausting) collection of fun, fat-torching, life-changing workouts that can be tailored to any fitness level.

"Doctors have long focused on the treatment of disease. Now we have a manual that highlights a means of prevention. As Dr. Metzl touts, exercise is one of the world's most effective medicines." —Sanjay Gupta, MD, chief medical correspondent, CNN

I began reading this book last night and highly recommend it. This book has an excellent balance of respect for western medical science while presenting a fresh, novel (for most of us) concept of exercise being the priority for a healthy human body/mind. I feel I can implement the advice because Dr. Wetzl addresses common mental roadblocks - he provides perspective to build toward the positive exercise habit with the believable premise that negative habits are at the same time pushed out of the way. I am inspired and am enjoying this well written book. Grab it and soak in the optimism and inspiration for the new year!
