The Healing Power of Exercise

About 33 years ago, a lazy farmer was given 6 months to live. He was in his late 60’s and he had cancer. In his distress, he put a few of his belongings in a wheelbarrow and decided to walk. He was going to walk around Australia.

It took him 2 years.

How long did the doctors tell him he had to live? Six months.

When he got back, he felt fantastic and he felt vibrant. His body no longer moved slowly but almost sprinting. The energy it took to sprint was less than when he first started to walk.

Amazing things start to happen in the body when we move it.

He was tested. No cancer.

This is a true story and it made headlines again just recently in an Australian paper.

Movement. It is one of the cheapest remedies there is. Movement is life. Stagnant pools breed disease and stagnant bodies breed disease.

Because activity is not a necessary part of most people’s lives, many people are getting sick because their bodies are not moving.

Blood is the river of life because wherever the blood touches it brings life. It brings nutrition, it brings water, it brings oxygen and it takes away waste from every part of the human body.

Any of you have cold feet? Our toes should be as warm as every part of our body.

Perfect health needs perfect circulation.

At night, everything slows down a bit. That’s when the body starts to revive and recharge. The river of life slows down to a nice, slow pace.

When you wake up in the morning, the blood has pooled to the internal organs. The best time to exercise is in the morning because it brings the blood out to the extremities.

In order for exercise to be a powerful, healing remedy, it must be done in the morning and it must be done regularly = FREQUENCY.

It takes 20 years of not maintaining your body before it breaks down quite badly. Fortunately, it does not need 20 years to get it better again. Take a month for every year you’ve done it wrong. image

Blood is a healer and anything that stimulates the blood moving a little bit faster is square one. It is paramount. A half hour of exercise a day will keep our body in good working order and one hour of exercise a day will reverse major problems. What problems? You name it.

How many hours are there in a day? It’s not much, is it?

Exercise causes our body to release a certain and important hormone and we will talk about it in my next post.
