Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
What if there were a drug to treat every illness, across all body systems, proven potent against heart disease, depression, arthritis, PMS and erectile dysfunction -- even in chronic diseases such as asthma, dementia, and certain types of cancer? What if it had no side effects, was completely free, readily available, and worked for "everyone"? Every single person who took it decreased her risk of premature death and raised his quality of life. Would you want it?In a healthcare system that spends 17% of GDP, roughly $2.7 trillion, mostly on disease treatment, how do we save money and prevent illness? By increasing the use of the world's most effective preventive medicine: "exercise." Jordan D. Metzl, MD, explains how everyone can maximize their daily dose in his groundbreaking new book, THE EXERCISE CURE. In THE EXERCISE CURE, Dr. Metzl -- nationally renowned sports medicine physician -- offers malady-specific and well-researched exercise prescriptions to help readers stay healthy, heal disease, drop pounds, increase longevity, and transform their lives. Today's medical system is largely focused on fixing rather than preventing problems, and many treatments carry significant side effects. Cholesterol-lowering drugs are linked to frequent muscle and joint problems, anti-hypertensive drugs like Beta-blockers cause headaches and diminished energy, and Prozac and other popular anti-depressant medications carry multiple consequences including sexual dysfunction. Dr. Metzl knows that exercise is inexpensive, powerful medicine that has benefits in prevention and treatment of disease without disturbing side effects. Even in older adults, daily exercise has been found to prevent dementia by generating neuron development in the hippocampus, the memory center of the brain. Combining the latest data and his proven motivational skills, Dr. Metzl addresses the common maladies troubling millions. He discusses our cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic, musculoskeletal, neurologic, reproductive, and endocrinologic body systems, with special sections on sleep problems and cancer prevention, presenting the science behind the role of exercise as medicine. Then, he details fun, fat-torching, life-prolonging workouts that can be tailored easily to any fitness level, beginner to advanced, and provides nutritional information, including meal plans for healthy eating and disease prevention, as well.

Book description

Everyone wants to lose weight, feel better, and live longer. But what if that was just the beginning? What if readers could use specific workouts to prevent, improve, or cure what ails them? The Exercise Cure shows the way. As Dr. Jordan Metzl says, “Exercise is medicine.” It’s the simplest way to keep yourself healthy and happy. Now he puts that philosophy—along with cutting-edge research and a motivational bedside manner—into a groundbreaking book split into three sections.

First, an AZ list of maladies that affect quality of life for millions, along with the specific exercise prescriptions that will help fix them—from Type 2 diabetes to depression, from arthritic joints to PMS, from addiction to sleep apnea (the book also includes a special section on how exercise can help cancer treatment). Second, a doctor-approved eating plan to fuel fast weight loss and great workouts. And most important of all, an exhaustive (and exhausting) collection of fun, fat-torching, life-changing workouts that can be tailored for any fitness level.

Dr. Metzl, a regular contributor to the Today show, is also a 9-time Ironman triathlete and 29-time marathoner. He’s an inspiring guide as both a medical expert and an athlete who knows what it takes to work up a healthy sweat.
