Tracking down the optimum dose of exercise


This article makes clear the salutary effects of exercise. Another great non-pharmacological method is meditation.It can be a collateral source of support. There is an increasing amount of science based evidence on the benefits of meditation. A good book is written by Ramesh Manocha,an Australian GP who is a researcher at the psychiatry department of Sydney university,called "Silence Your Mind". Compliance,or adherence,is always an issue,but with meditation you may well find that motivation is naturally forthcoming. At a time when there is so much stress around and the health service is anxious to save vast sums of money,I do believe that an inordinate amount of resource is being wasted by ignoring this beneficial,even essential,form of aid.
