Exercise for Chronic Conditions by Igor Klibanov

Igor Klibanov on Toronto Raw/Vegan Festival

You know in general that exercise is good for chronic diseases, but I’ll be that you don’t know specifics. What type of exercise should you do? How much? How often?

    This seminar will focus specifically on exercises for 4 chronic conditions:
  • Diabetes
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
When you use a laser-focus with your exercise program on the chronic condition, you can do a lot more good than if you just did something general.
Each chronic condition requires a different approach. For example, the exercises that work for osteoporosis will actually make your condition worse if you have osteoarthritis, so it’s very important to tailor the exercise to your condition. In this seminar you’ll learn exactly how to do that.
For instance, one study found that the right exercise, decreased the risk of fractures by 11%.
In another study, they showed that there was a 59% improvement in blood sugar from the right training protocol for diabetes.
Yet another study found that in people at risk for Alzheimer’s who exercised the right way, their mental function improved by 73%.
In this seminar you’ll learn exactly what you need to do to achieve the same or better results (remember, the researchers in studies only manipulate one variable – exercise, in this case. They don’t combine it with proper nutrition and supplementation).
In typical Igor-fashion, you’ll also learn why you’re doing what you’re doing. Why those exercises work for certain conditions but not others.
    This seminar is for you if:
  • You are personally worried about getting any of these conditions
  • You already have one of these conditions
  • You have a friend or family member with one of these conditions
  • You’re simply interested in learning about health
  • You want to meet new people

The most difficult aspect of choosing any diet is that of convincing yourself that it is indeed the right choice. Change is stress, even when the change is positive. The vast majority of us blindly eat the standard diet without ever questioning it's role in our health. Meanwhile, obesity, heart disease, diabetes and cancer are on the rise and considered epidemic. Scientific journals are constantly touting the benefits of whole, raw fruits and vegetables, and yet the mention of an unprocessed, plant based diet raises fear and concern. Plant based eaters are often referred to as extremists. This belief is dangerous and counter-intuitive. In this lecture we will lay the groundwork for improved levels of health, performance and an overall more enjoyable life.
