A few years back, I was diagnose with Sarcoidosis, which is an incurable disease that affects the organs of the body - specifically the liver and lungs. The Pulmonologist suggested two options to combat my symptoms 1- Take Prednisolone, which is a steroid that would reduce inflammation in my lungs, or 2 – Start an exercise program, which would naturally boost my immune system and would hopefully reduce the inflammation in the lungs.
After weighing the advantage and disadvantages of both approaches, I decided to start a regular exercise routine. The routine included both cardio and weight training.
In my situation, the benefits of a consistent exercise program has been a great approach – as of now I am in remission.
The benefits of regular exercising are quite numerous. So my point in writing this blog is to remind you, whether healthy or sick, to discuss the benefits of a regular exercise routine with your doctor – perhaps you too will also benefit.
Thank you for reading and please share your exercise routine with us!
