BTD Forums  /  Live Right 4 Your Type  /  Inability to do streneous exercises
Posted by: ArwenLegolas, Monday, May 2, 2011, 3:22am
I just read that as an AB I should do aerobic exercises. I cannot walk, let alone run. I have a bad knee that is all swollen and painful, and they have not been able to discover what is wrong. I also have a tennis elbow and cannot do anything with my arms. that means I can also not go swimming. I have arthritis in my spine and my knees. Are there any exercises that will not make things worse? I tried cycling, but got excruciating cramps for several hours after the event.

Perhaps work you way up with the cycling.

Do a very short time initially and gradually increase.

In my area there are special yoga classes for people with mobility impairments, it may be a place to start as you work your way up to a more aerobic form of exercise.

Good gut flora should dissipate a lot of the arthritis and you might be surprised how much of the other stuff made fade to some degree. I guess in contrast you could just die instead.

How long have you been following the BTD?

I would think that as you become close to 100% compliant you will begin to see your symptoms ease up and then the best place to start would be a specified yoga class. If you have the resources, doing one or two private sessions with a yoga instructor would be a huge benefit to you.

I am sure you can get into a pool, you don't need to swim just walk in the water.  Yoga can be modified  for anyone, it is just finding the right teacher, they even have chair yoga which is  a seated yoga.

You say you "can't" you need to change that to what "can" I do even with my limitations?

Getting off wheat will help a great deal and then adding your Bt/GT foods making you healthier.

Quality of life must be important to you or you would not be here.

If you can't do strenuous exercise right now, then do gentle exercise. Some exercise is better than none! Cycling might be a good choice- it sounds like you were OK during the cycling, but had problems later from over-exertion.

Over time, you should be able to build up to doing more exercise. Two things will happen: exercise itself will help you build up stamina, and eating the right foods will heal you from the inside out, also enabling you to do more.

if you are on Super / Diamonds and Benficials only you will get better sooooon..

exercise does not require anything .. my mom did it with just balancing her cane on her finger.. streight out or higher up.. the same on her foot while lying down.. any resistance will benefit you.. work up to longer one second at a time and more repetitions during the day..

now for the knee.. well (click on your private mail above) and if you can at all .. then lean up against any strong wall while holding on to the back of a chair and your feet a foot or so away from the wall.. first just stand that way.. in a few days try to let the body slide down as far as you can and stay there until you feel the front muscles burn.. once is enough but work your way up to more or lower..

for the shoulder elbow,, you should look at your pillow situation you may need a pillow under your arm while sleeping to support, or under your neck or what ever.. even a pillow behind your back.. or sleeping on a couch with your back supported..  try it all as the pain comes from some sort of kink you create your self..

for the back, keep looking at what you do.. are you over extending your knees when you stand? a small knee bend might relieve all sorts of pressure..

I have taken to rolling up a cold pack.. as it is softert hen a towel to put onder my neck.. it seems to work for now keeping my neck in better alignment (after my last chiro visit) and this seems to fit much better then any other 'roll' of sorts..  all the best.

How about  walking in a pool in 3ft-4ft of water... in circles? You don't need to use your arms for this exercise..  The buoyancy will keep the stress off your knees. You can wear a life jacket to hold you up.. then just make the movements with your legs to go around the shallow end around and around. Start with 5 mins..  slowly work up to 30 mins. The resistance from the water will be aerobic.

Also you can just hold on to a "noodle" or other flotation device and paddle around the pool with your legs.  That doesn't use any arm motion either. Where there's a will there's a way. Or if it hurts to hold the noodle, just wear a life jacket to hold you up and paddle...dangling your arms

Srict compliance, especilly the worst offenders goes a long way with aches and pains, take it from me. Avoid avoids 100%.  you would think limiting would help but not nearly as much as complete avoidance. Yoga with emphasis on stretching and elongating would be great. As mentioned before, yoga can be modified to anything you want. I had terrible aches and pains and thought I needed carpel tunnel surgey as well as all the other aches but since BT, I have zereo, not less, but zero wrist trouble. I'd like to blame just the major offenders for my BT but it's more realistic to say the whole diet. I've been BT for 3 years and eat only sf and diamond meats and fats and mostly veg, though some N for variety. I can't begin to tell you all the changes it made from arthritis to zzzz at night. Compliance is crucial.

Very good advice!

Don't worry about aerobics right now.  The most important thing is that you start to do something, and keep moving consistently, every day.  Try to avoid extremes.  Doing nothing is an extreme.  Pushing any sort of movement too far or too fast is an extreme.  Consistency is going to bring about positive change.

If you have this many health problems, I advise following the diet 100%.  Try eating diamond superfoods at every meal.  Consider toxins to be poisons and avoid them completely.  Take Polyflora to help balance your gut. Wheat and sugar are not going to help your cause.
