Exercise is medicine

What if there was one medicine so powerful in maintaining and improving health that it could prevent or treat dozens of diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and obesity? There is!

Exercise can treat and prevent many diseases.  Your doctor feels that exercise is so important for your health that he or she may prescribe it during your visit, just as medication or tests might be prescribed.
