Recently I was asked to give a lecture on how exercise can improve joint health and reduce pain. Many people don’t realize it, but proper exercise is actually one of the most effective tools for doing exactly that.
Today I came across a great article that summarizes some of the research done on this topic and it is astounding what has been discovered. According to study, exercise works on several different levels. For instance-
The movement and the weight bearing pressure associated with proper exercise helps nourish joint cartilage. This can increase the ease and comfort of movement as well as improve (or help prevent) arthritis symptoms. It can also ease tension in muscles, which can reduce pain as well.
The brain responds to exercise in a way that can reduce pain too, by producing endogenous, opiod like compounds called endorphins. These compounds help block pain signals and promote a feeling of well being.
One group studied even had a 60% reduction in pain by doing a simple exercise regularly. 60%!

Another thing I wanted to make sure I shared with you today is the video of my National TV segment that aired this week. You may remember me sending out a notification about it last Sunday. It is from a show that averages 1 million viewers per day and since it aired I’ve gotten calls from California, Texas, New Jersey, as well as various parts of Florida. It’s been really awesome to see how much my miracle story has blessed people. If you want to see it, click here-
I hope these bless you. Have a great rest of your weekend!
P.S. The free lecture I’ll be giving called “Optimal Exercises for Joint Health and Pain Reduction” will be held at 4 p.m. on Tuesday October 15th at the Meadows Community Association Building. Last time we had a near full house and many are already signing up for this one. If you’d like to attend please email me.
