We all know that regular exercise is good for you, letting you feel better and live longer--but did you know that certain types of exercise can prevent and heal particular ailments? Debra Daley looks at more than 50 common health conditions and explains how specific exercises can help to reduce their symptoms and stave off illness. Along with the hard evidence about the benefits of different types of exercise, Debra keeps it simple all the way, telling you what to do, how often to do it, and why it works: discover how to help prevent chronic health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, and arthritis, but also ways to make a positive difference to normal experiences like pregnancy, sexual wellbeing, and ageing. Learn, too, about how physical activity encourages mental health by boosting the production of the feel-good chemicals, endorphins. With a directory describing a wide range of exercise disiplines that details their advantages in relation to disease prevention, Body Moves is a musthave book for anyone who wants to permanently improve their health.
