Exercise has been accepted for decades as a means to improving and sustaining good physical and mental health.  Even passive exercises help patients in comas and vegetative or similar states to maintain some muscle tone and better metabolic function.

A key to exercise results for health is the inclusion  regular aerobic exercise (it must raise the heart rate sufficiently) in an overall exercise regimen that includes strength and flexibility as well as range-of-motion components. Aerobic exercise sends additional amounts of oxygen to the brain, muscles, and all parts of the body, while oxygen enhances many body functions. This is shown in the numerous and growing successful applications of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) (oxygen chamber) treatments. Wound healing, weight loss, and many other conditions are aided by HBOT when available.

Aerobic exercise can keep certain areas of the brain from SHRINKING in children, youth adults, and senior citizens (more so for women than men at this time). This prevention staves off memory loss and dementia in senior citizens. It helps some ADD/ADHD students to perform better in school and social situations. What’s more, exericse is free.
