Hi all,

I find that after I do a walk of 30- 40 minutes that the next day I am extremely stiff and sore all over . I don't do weight lifting anymore due to the after effects. I did yoga this morning for 40 minutes which helps a little but the next day I am stiff again.

I am underweight as well. I just ordered intrinsa, proberry and bromelain and hope that helps.

Any suggestions?

June ;D

June-have you just started walking 30-40 minutes or have you been doing this for a long time and feel stiff and sore all over?   Do you stretch before and after your walk?  Since you did yoga and it seemed to help that may be a good thing.  Have an epsom salts bath at night which helps relax your muscles.  You may also be lacking in calcium and magnesium.

I have been exercising for a long time. It seems that lately I have been getting very stiff. I will take more of the Calcium magnesium. How do you take an epsom salt bath?

I like exercising a lot so I don't have any inner disagreement with it. ;)

Thanks for your replies,
June ;D

Hi June,

In LR4YT, the exercise recommendations (for healthy individuals) for cardio is 25 minutes 2-3/x weekly. In most of the Health Series books that I own, the various cardio frequencies and length varies from 40-50 minutes 2-3 x/weekly. Weight loss recommendations are 45 minutes of exercise appropriate per blood type.

What are your particular health goals/objectives? You may want to start on the lower range and increase your length time...and pay attention to how your body feels. As well, overexercising tends to increase cortisol levels in A's.

When you receive your bromelain, this will assist with your exercise recovery.

June-you can pick some epsom salts (more magnesium) up at the pharmacy and put in about 1/4 cup into your warm running bath water.  Make sure your tub is clean.  Light a few candles, read a book, glass of red wine if you wish...enjoy.  Do a body brush before your bath and before you dry off use some grapeseed oil mixed in with the water from your body and feel really good afterwards. :D (clap)(clap)(dance)(dance)

Debra :)

P.S.  What other types of vitamin supplements are you taking?  Are you taking the type A's from Dr. D?

Quoted from Detoxification Support Protocols
Epsom Salt Baths: Take a shower first, then start with a very clean tub; fill the tub with the hottest water you can stand. Begin with cup of Epsom salts, work up gradually to 4 cups, and soak as long as hour. If you experience light-headedness, drain the tub, and wait until you feel steady enough to leave the tub.

Thank you all for your suggestions. I will try the epsom salt bath tonight. I do bodybrushing every day before I shower.

Debra,I am taking a multivitamin, a calcium magnesium supplement, betaine hydrochloride with a little bromelain and pepsin, fish oil and evening primrose oil, black current seed oil, quercetin, adrenal support, grapefruit seed extract and a probiotic. I just ordered bromelain, intrinsa(since I had 5 intestinal infections over the past 2 years) and proberry caps.

I also started vitex for fibroids. If that doesn't work along with the bromelain I will get neprinol. Taking the digestive supplements really helps my digestion a lot.

Alia,I want to stay in good shape. Heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and cancer run in my family.I am underweight, almost 5'9 and 127 pounds. I'd like to gain 5-10 pounds.  I used to weight lift at the gym but can't do that anymore, it wears me out too much and makes me too stiff. Today I did yoga. I also like to bike ride but I am probably too tired to do that today.

My husband is a type A as well, but he has a much stronger digestive system and more endurance than I do and he is normal weight. I like to exercise with him but I can't do as much as he does.

Thanks again,

Hi all,

I just took an epsom salt bath and do feel less stiff and more relaxed. Thanks you for the suggestion. I will try to take those on a regular basis at night.
