A Sedentary Lifestyle Can Lead to Ailments

Living a sedentary lifestyle may seem ideal for some people. Imagine just kicking back and relaxing without having to do anything. Life, as it would seem, is perfect. However, danger lurks at the thought of physical inactivity.

Couch potatoes, take heed. Neglecting any physical activity can be dangerous. Little to no exercise can lead to many problems with your health. Spending too much time on the couch, just watching TV, or staring at the computer can produce adverse physical ailments as well as mental stress. But that doesn't mean that we should give up our TV privileges, quit our office desk work or neglect to study for school. As long as we allow ourselves to engage in various physical activity, that's enough.

Physical activity promotes proper oxygen circulation and blood flow and facilitates cellular processes in the body. In fact, medical experts always encourage people, regardless of age or gender, to engage in exercise or any physical activity.

As we age, the more important it is for us to exercise. We lose vitality and muscle mass as we get older. To postpone the aging process, we need to sweat out the toxins in our body. Lifting weights helps us gain muscle mass.

Engaging in physical activity also lowers the risk of heart disease. Cardiovascular exercises like swimming and running gets the heart worked up, reducing the likelihood of blood vessels becoming stiff and blocked. Working out also reduces the risks of diabetes, cancer and many other diseases.

The best thing about exercise is that it makes you look good and feel great about yourself. Talk about boosting your self-confidence!

Patient Reviews

This was my first visit with Dr. Sosnowski and it was the most thorough physical I have ever had. My appointment was scheduled to be two hours so that we could go through all my medical history and have a physical exam. It was so nice to be able to have someone really listen to you and answer your questions. Dr. Sosnowski was knowledgeable and thorough. I left with a few things to implement now while we have lab work done (also very thorough and extensive) and a plan to move forward towards good health.

A Doctor's Personal Story

"FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE LITERALLY SAVED MY LIFE."

by Jennifer J. Sosnowski, MD, FAAFP, ABoIM, IFMCP

"My personal struggle in overcoming six years of chronic daily migraines was the catalyst that led me to become an expert in functional and integrative medicine. My exasperation with the conveyor belt approach of today's mainstream medical industry inspired me to launch MVP Medical Care. My focus is on you, the patient - insurance companies don't dictate your care."
