Your secret weapon when fighting Prostate Cancer [Video]

By Dr. David Samadi Let’s face it; cancer can be scary and very bad. You may feel out-of-control or lost about what you should or should not be doing. But, no matter what cancer you are diagnosed with, just about every oncologist agrees with (and should recommend) is to exercise. Research shows that for most cancer patients, exercise is safe and helpful before, during, and after cancer treatment. Even with a cancer diagnosis, it’s important to keep physically active, if possible. The human body is made to move, in sickness (most of the time) and in health. Of course, depending on what type of cancer, there are various treatments to battle it. But, fighting cancer also requires an “empowered” patient rather than a “passive patient.” Not exercising can lead to loss of muscle mass and functional decline. Research shows it’s better to move more than to move less.
