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.

From the Publisher
"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

"It's that "magic pill" we've all been waiting for, the most basic key to health and longevity—EXERCISE! As Dr. Metzl explains, exercise is medicine that really works and will change your life."—Natalie Morales, NBC Today Show

"Finally a tell-all book about the most powerful drug known to mankind—Exercise!  Dr Metzl expertly describes all you need to know about why and how you should exercise to improve your health.  This is a must read for everyone who wants to live a long and active life."—Robert Sallis, MD, Past President; American College of Sports Medicine

"This book provides compelling evidence for the important role of exercise in preventing and

treating a number of medical conditions, including vascular disease, diabetes, psychiatric

diseases, and even cancer. Dr. Metzl shows the reader, without a doubt, that exercise IS medicine."—Scott Rodeo, MD, head team physician, US Olympic Team

"For years, physicians have been instructing patients on what NOT to do in order to stay healthy.

Dr. Metzl has a more compelling instruction: What TO do! His program for each of us,

no matter at what level we begin, will not only cure or make illness easier but surely offer further

options for disease prevention. "—Richard P. Cohen, MD, clinical professor of medicine, Weill Cornell Medical College

    Uplifting, inspiring and fantastic

    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!
