A cancer-related checkup is recommended every 3 years for people aged 20 to 40 and every year for people aged 40 or older. This exam should include health counseling and, depending on a person’s age and gender, might include examinations for cancers of the thyroid, oral cavity, skin, lymph nodes, testes, or ovaries, as well as for some nonmalignant diseases. A high dietary intake of vitamin C has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of death from heart attacks and strokes, as well as all other causes including cancer. Many clinical and experimental studies have clearly demonstrated that stress, personality, attitude, and emotion are etiologic or contributory in suppressing the immune system as well as leading to the development of many diverse diseases. Regular exercise has been demonstrated to provide benefit to individuals with immunodeficiency diseases, particularly through stress alleviation and mood enhancement. HIV-positive individuals had increases in CD4, CD8, and natural killer (NK) cells immediately following aerobic exercise. Melatonin exerts significant anticancer effects, especially against breast cancer. Vitamin E not only improves insulin action, it also exerts a number of beneficial effects when taken at dosages ranging from 400 to 800 IU, which may aid in preventing the long-term complications of diabetes.

You're probably considering this book because you're struggling with mental health. Maybe it's anxiety, maybe it's depression, PTSD, or something else. Or perhaps, you have friends or family members with these conditions. Or perhaps you're a health/fitness professional, wanting to help your clients or patients.If so, then this book is for you.You, your friend, family member or client(s) has been struggling with a mental health issue, and you keep hearing that "exercise is good for you." But you're not really sure exactly what to do.I mean, when a doctor prescribes a medication, there is a lot of precision behind it. You know: -The name of the medication.-The dosage.-Whether it should be taken with food or without food, and-Whether it should be taken in the morning, noon or eveningBut when the doctor recommends exercise, well, the recommendation is vague. You don't know exactly how to do it. You need the exercise prescription for different conditions. To know the exercise prescription you need to know: -The type of exercise, such as: cardio, strength training, or stretching-The frequency: how many days per week you should exercise. It's not always a "more is better" type of scenario. With some things there's a "sweet spot", where too little is not stimulating, and too much is implausible. The "sweet spot" varies condition-by-condition, and person-to-person-The duration: how long you should exercise for-The intensity: at what percent of your maximal effort do you exercise?Just as a doctor does not prescribe the same medication for different conditions, nor does it make sense to do the same exercise for different conditions. What's good for depression may actually make anxiety worse (you might be wondering "I have BOTH anxiety and depression. What do I do " Don't worry my friend, I won't leave you hanging. We'll cover that in the chapter on "how to individualize"). What's good for one condition may not be good for another.As a result of using the right exercise and nutrition prescription, you can expect to: -Reverse your condition(s)-Improved your performance at work-Be able to focus better-Start new relationships that are personally satisfying-Lose weight-Get more toned-Have more energy-Sleep better-Achieve mental clarity and a peace of mind...and lots more.I've written the book to be as thorough as possible, but I know that with all the details, it can get overwhelming. That's why in the conclusion of this book, you'll find a quick reference guide. No theory, just practice. If you don't want to learn about the physiology behind mental health, and you're more of a "just tell me what to do" kind of person, just flip to the conclusion, and follow the recommendations in there. It will take you less than 5 minutes to get through that.
