Exercise Without Exercising

Exercise Without Exercising

There’s something euphoric about strenuous exercise. Once the body warms up and we get into a good rhythm, endorphins kick in and even difficult routines can seem effortless. For many people, strenuous exercise can be addictive. Part of this is because the wear and tear on our muscles unleashes an abundance of feel-good chemicals to alleviate the pain. And as we’ve heard so many times: “no pain, no gain.”

Of the 10 million Americans who are prescribed antibiotics for a sore throat each year, only about 2 million actually have a bacterial infection, such as streptococcal pharyngitis or strep throat, that is susceptible to the medication.

The Secret To Losing Weight By Improving Digestion

The Secret To Losing Weight By Improving Digestion

The sneaky fat creeping up around your mid-section, a bloated belly after you eat, low energy sabotaging your workout: What do they have in common? They’re all reflections of the direct relationship between sluggish digestion, slow metabolism and weight gain. Overeating during the holidays and engaging in less physical activity means this process can really snowball in the winter.
