- The best medicine is real food, exercise, and a balanced lifestyle that includes adequate sleep. Too often, we look for the quick and easy options, time and labour-saving choices which enable us to spend more time working and / or being sedentary, to the detriment of health and happiness.
- In injury management, rest is over-rated. “Off-loading” is often used as a synonym for rest. There are always options to minimise or avoid deconditioning with injury or illness. It’s not unusual for deconditioning effects to exceed those of an initial injury.
