Sarcoidosis: I am in Remission!

Sarcoidosis: I am in Remission!

Sarcoidosis...

A few years back, I was diagnose with Sarcoidosis, which is an incurable disease that affects the organs of the body - specifically the liver and lungs. The Pulmonologist suggested two options to combat my symptoms 1- Take Prednisolone, which is a steroid that would reduce inflammation in my lungs, or 2 – Start an exercise program, which would naturally boost my immune system and would hopefully reduce the inflammation in the lungs.

After weighing the advantage and disadvantages of both approaches, I decided to start a regular exercise routine. The routine included both cardio and weight training. 

In my situation, the benefits of a consistent exercise program has been a great approach – as of now I am in remission.

The benefits of regular exercising are quite numerous. So my point in writing this blog is to remind you, whether healthy or sick, to discuss the benefits of a regular exercise routine with your doctor – perhaps you too will also benefit.

Please remember exercise has the ability to:

  • Boost your immune system
  • Provides a natural high
  • Reduces PMS symptoms
  • Natural antidepressant
  • Being fit will boost your confidence
  • Relieves stress
  • Strengthens muscles and bones
  • Sleep Better
  • You'll Have Better Sex
  • Improve Your Memory

Thank you for reading and please share your exercise routine with us!
