I was doing just that. I am 64 and overweight and happy to lounge around watching tv and resisted any form of exercise. About two months or so ago I started doing Dr Johanna Budwig's protocol and as the days went by I started to get more and more energy. Now I just can't lie around anymore as I feel I want to move and exercise. I can't tell you how good this is.
I was resigned to feeling more and more ill as the years go by, and now my mental outlook has changed too. Whether this is because I have more energy I don't know but I suspect it is. I have got my PT bouncer from its home in a cupboard and bounce three times a day. This is the most amazing exercise and because my hips and knees ache I am being careful, but this ever increasing energy has me putting on my iPod and going mad on the rebounder while listening to a Trance track with a fast beat. I am feeling better every day. Rebounding is wonderful. The more you do the better you feel. Hips and knees are taking it well. I was getting a bit weak and wobbly on my legs which made me feel unsteady. That is nearly gone and I have only been using the rebounder for a matter of days. I forgot to say I started the flax seed oil, flax seeds and quark regime for a painful lumpy breast and that went fairly soon into the regime.
Two months ago my 85 year old father was using a cane and having quite a bit of trouble getting around.
Since then, he has been going to the YMCA 3-4 times a week for an exercise class for Seniors. It is an hour long. Some attend in wheelchairs.
I just got back from a visit with him. I am amazed at how well he is doing. He no longer needs a cane. He can walk much further. He even had some decorative brick work around some flowerbeds that he put in himself! He would walk around his yard picking up stray leaves in the yard!
Anyway, it is exciting to see him improving in his mobility. Perhaps I won't underestimate the value of exercise again!
