Exercise: The Natural Healer
When you’re beginning a new exercise routine, you may begin to notice muscle stiffness and soreness, but most times, these elegies of “soreness” and “stiffness” feel “good” to some degree. This “good” feeling is usually the C-reactive protein being reduced throughout your body. When you possess a large number of C-reactive proteins, it’s a signal your body is suffering from chronic inflammation conditions and it’s also a signal it’s time to do something to fix your chronic inflammation. With a nice and steady exercise routine where you’re allowing time to heal between workouts (usually every other day), you’ll begin to notice your workouts having a defensive effect on your inflammation. This principle is similar to drinking warm, lemon water, an extremely acidic beverage, and upon digesting in the human body it becomes alkaline and helps balance your pH levels. Exercise for inflammation may seem to be something which may aggravate your existing inflammation, but it in most cases it will help your inflammation tremendously.
What’s the Best Routine to Reduce Inflammation?
This question is truly dependent upon many factors which a certified trainer should recommend to you based on your weight, height, diet, existing conditions, etc…, but it will ultimately depend on where your interests lie. A great starting workout routine to reduce inflammation is to begin swimming ever other day and gently glide through the water feeling your body’s tension release under the buoyancy of the refreshing pool, lake, or sea which you choose to escape to. Swimming is one of the ultimate workouts as it uses nearly every part of the human body when varied styles of strokes are incorporated into your routine. Choose something which you are interested in and it will never feel as though you’re working out.
