Exercise

Benefits of exercise for the cancer survivor:

  • Reduces the risk of lymphedema
  • Improves range of motion
  • Improves cardiovascular endurance
  • Increases strength and lean body mass
  • Reduces the risk of osteoporosis
  • Improves self-image
  • Reduces many of the side effects of hormone therapy and chemotherapy

Studies have shown that choosing a healthy lifestyle exceeds many conventional chemotherapy and hormonal therapy drugs, yet few patients know of the data or have the ability to make such lifestyle changes.
