Exercise Versus Drugs for Heart Disease, Stroke and Diabetes

Rate: 0 Flag


A new study shows that exercise is at least as effective as drugs in reducing death rates from heart disease, stroke and diabetes.



Coronary artery disease, stroke and diabetes are among the most common causes of disability and death in modern society.  In recent years, scientific advances have brought forth many new medications that can help to prevent and manage these life-threatening diseases, and prolong life.  But what if I was to tell you that there is a natural, medication-free, low-risk treatment that can reduce your risk of dying from these diseases, as well as dying from cancer?  What if I also told you that this treatment reduces stress, and can help to ease anxiety and depression?  Would you be interested in a free, nontoxic therapy that could do all of these miraculous things, and which did not require the use of any pills, injections or surgery?  Well, there is such a therapy, and that therapy is… exercise!

A newly published research study strongly suggests that plain old exercise appears to be as effective as medications in reducing death rates associated with heart disease, stroke and diabetes.  This research study appears in the British Medical Journal.

In this meta-analysis study, a whopping 305 prospective randomized clinical research trials, encompassing 339,274 study participants, were evaluated.  Among these more than 300,000 study participants, nearly 15,000 were assigned to undergo exercise as an intervention to prevent or treat coronary artery disease, stroke and diabetes.  The findings of this meta-analysis revealed just how effective increasing physical activity levels can be in improving your health and prolonging your life with regards to coronary artery disease, stroke and diabetes.  In fact, exercise was actually more effective than medications in preventing death in patients who were undergoing rehabilitation following stroke.  When comparing exercise to medications, exercise was as effective as drugs in the prevention of coronary artery disease and diabetes, as well as in reducing the risk of death due to these diseases.

As I document in my book, A Cancer Prevention Guide for the Human Race, there is extensive high-level research data available showing that regular and moderate exercise can dramatically reduce your risk of dying from cancer.  This newly published research study further confirms the very significant and broad health benefits of staying physically active.  While this particular study cannot tell us if it is safe to switch from medications to exercise alone in the management of chronic diseases, it does confirms the findings of earlier studies showing that exercise can be highly effective in preventing or controlling serious chronic illnesses like heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer.  So, please don’t delay in starting this “miracle therapy” called exercise!

If you are not already regularly exercising, then please talk with your doctor before starting any new exercise program, and do not stop taking any medications prescribed by your doctor without first checking with him or her.

According to recent Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate for veterans who served on active duty between September 2001 and December 2011 is more than 12 percent.  A new website, Veterans in Healthcare, seeks to connect veterans with potential employers.  If you are a veteran who works in the healthcare field, or if you are an employer who is looking for physicians, advanced practice professionals, nurses, corpsmen/medics, or other healthcare professionals, then please take a look at Veterans in Healthcare. As a retired veteran of the U.S. Army, I would also like to personally urge you to hire a veteran whenever possible.

Disclaimer:  As always, my advice to readers is to seek the advice of your physician before making any significant changes in medications, diet, or level of physical activity
