When I first read Radical Remission 6 years ago, I fell in love with Dr. Turner's research. Her book gave us so much hope. Reading about the factors, the research and the radical remission survivors really helped me to be a better caregiver to my husband.
We knew that exercise and movement was very important for healing and so we could not understand why it was not in the book.
When Dr. Turner's 2nd book came out, Radical Hope, I was so happy to see that she had added the Exercise and Movement factor.
Dr. Turner explained, that exercise DID come up as a healing factor in the initial RR research, but wasn’t a factor that all had survivors utilized. Upon further review of old and new cases, Dr. Turner found that all radical remission survivors added exercise and movement back into their routines as soon as they were strong enough and able to do so.
Some Radical Remission survivors didn’t include exercise in their interviews because they didn’t consider daily walks, physical therapy, household activities, or engaging in other less formal or structured movement as “exercise.” But as we read in the book and as we know, it is!
Happy Sunday dear community, reminding you all to 'move your body': take a walk, dance, do some gardening or play ball. Whatever you are able to do. It is so important to our health and will put a smile on your face 😊
