DoYou HaveThis Poison InsideYou?
What if I told you that right now, inside of you, there was a poison so powerful that it has been shown to cause heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and more?
Running is a great way to stay in shape and reap the benefits of cardiovascular exercise, but unfortunately, it’s not for everyone. If you’re recovering from an injury or experiencing chronic pain from inflammation, running might be too intense of an exercise for you. These limitations affect more than just physical fitness — they limit your overall quality of life. Running is a high-impact workout that takes a severe toll on muscles and joints. In many cases, the inflammation caused by the impact of running can be so severe that simple tasks like walking or getting out of bed become major challenges. Even if running is possible, it might not be the best workout strategy for you. Here are four low-impact exercises that will keep you fit and help you achieve your training goals.

Give journaling a try and see how it helps you deal with the stress in your life. For more tips on living a detox lifestyle and getting rid of stress, pick up a copy of my new book, “The Unlimited You Detox.”
Alternatives to Running

Many adults with joint pain thrive on the elliptical because of how easy it is to use. It’s a running machine that keeps your feet from ever hitting the ground. The lack of impact translates to much less stress on your joints and bones, and less pain overall.
