Top 5 Reasons to Exercise if you have Parkinson's
The entire [re+active] team got together last week to share our passion about exercise! About 8000 people were reached throughout Facebook Live videos and our live exercise class. How awesome is that!? In our ideal world, many lives would be changed by using exercise as a potent medication to manage the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease. In order to make the educational videos more accessible--we wanted to put them in one place so you can have easy access.

Let's start with the Top 5 reasons to use exercise as medicine in PD:
#5: Exercise helps with constipation! I know so many people that are on all kinds of different medications to help with constipation--let's just take the natural remedy--exercise. Dr. Chelsea Duncan shares about how this helps.
#4: Exercise helps you sleep better. Yikes--I know that I need this! Dr. Erin Caudill explains about the importance of sleep and how it is improved with exercise.
#3: Exercise gives you energy. And who better to explain this that our own Dr. Ali Elder.
#4 Exercise to improve thinking and memory
I need this more than anything! My memory got super foggy after having kids. But I notice a big difference with regular exercise.
#1: Exercise slows progression of PD through neuroplasticity.
I can't even tell you how many of our clients look like they do not have PD because they have gotten into a regular and specific exercise program designed for brain change. It works!
The evidence is powerful--exercise really can change many of your symptoms of PD. It is the best natural remedy. How have you used exercise to manage your symptoms of PD? We would love to hear from you! Drop us a line and tell us about your experience.
