Benefits of Exercise during cancer treatment - A very personal blog post by Melanie - PhysioLogic

IMG_5429This blog is being written from my own personal experience. Unfortunately I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June.

I am not going to say it’s been an easy road. Actually it’s been bloody hard.

I am so lucky to work with a highly skilled team of professionals who are passionate about health and well-being. And who are supporting me.

I think the most important advice I was given from day 1 was KEEP MOVING!

There will be days when you just want to curl up and die. It’s not about running a marathon, it’s not doing a spin class.

I know the thought of exercise can be daunting when you are ill. It can be as simple as walking around the block. Some days it’s just hanging out the washing. Or even watering the garden. But move that body.

 

Our amazing personal trainer Alex supported and nurtured me through a session today that she tailored to my physical capabilities at this stage of my health and treatment.

I am keeping good health. I have had no other illness or sickness.
My specialist team always commend me on how well I am doing and how I am in such good health for someone going through this treatment. And I say it’s because I move my body. I think exercise has played a big part in my treatment and my good health.

Do I want to some days ? Hell no ! But I know the evidence and medical benefits exercise has for cancer patients.
