Exercise While Sick


This current Covid-19 pandemic February-March 2020, has put quite a scare into people. Some helpful advice now. This advice applies to the common cold as well.

Should I exercise while I'm sick?
As a lot of people already know, exercise gives a very good boost to the immune system, particularly the type of exercise that revs up the heart beat and pushes blood to parts of the body which may not be getting much flow. Think of the upper parts of the lungs which are collapsed at rest. There are other capillary structures that have little blood flow at rest as well. Exercise flushes them all with fresh blood carrying various immune structures (white blood cells, globulins etc.) and that is what we want to see right? Exercise for weight loss, strength, endurance, is a different ball game.

Strenuous exercise is NOT advised while sick. Low level exercise to tolerance without straining the heart or lungs is ok. Each person needs to monitor their own level of physical distress based on their physical condition.

By far, the most important effects on the immune system come from food (not supplements) and exercise. Think fruits and vegetables. Keep fluids -up and fibre up.

Here is a good link below to some data in a two page pdf on exercise from the American College of Sports Medicine.

Special Note               

Wellness Risk Management is applied research at the science end of the scale.

Knowing Wellness isn't getting Wellness. Doing Wellness is applying the science. We show how that is done.

What Kind of Diseases Are Reduced with Wellness Risk Management?

All chronic diseases are reduced with multidimensional Wellness strategies because of the multidimensional nature of those strategies. Acute diseases are reduced, again because of the multidimensional nature of those strategies.

All organs and systems in the body benefit by reducing Wellness Risk. When the body moves toward optimal health by applying those optimal health secrets which science has discovered, then all parts of the body benefit. We live longer and happier due to less suffering from disease. We perform better at work, better at our recreation pursuits, and better at our interrelationship pursuits too.

Applying the rules laid out in our workshop workbooks and completing all action plan items indicated in the Wellness Risk Management Report of Findings is a ticket to better Health and better living.

It is not particularly easy to get there because we have to fight natural human tendencies that lead us toward disease and suffering.

Most people need help of one type or another. Delivering that help is what Wellness Risk Management is all about.
