New Research: Exercise Beats Drugs for Stroke Recovery, Heart Disease & Diabetes

You have been lied to! You have been told that your high blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and stroke recovery require prescription drugs for the rest of your life. New research shows that these drugs have likely been unnecessarily prescribed. This has placed millions of people at risk for deadly side effects due to these drugs.

Exercise and Stroke Recovery

This research shows that exercise is just as effective at treating heart disease and diabetes as medication. However, exercise has zero deadly side effects, making it even more effective than drugs. Further, the study showed that exercise is even more effective than drug therapy for stroke recovery. Imagine what would happen when you add rock solid nutrition to this as well!

These excuses have become firmly ingrained in our own minds in the collective mind of our society.
