The answer is no! It could actually make you feel worse or you may risk infecting others if you have something contagious. But here are 5 unexpected times that you should hit the gym!
After surgery. Post op cancer patients showed benefits after exercising again. Be sure to ask your doctor if and when it’s okay, especially if it was a joint surgery.
When you have minor joint pain. Exercise can help alleviate join pain. If you’re having some minor joint issues, starting a workout regime can be very beneficial in strengthening the joint and preventing pain. If your pain is more severe, consider physical therapy instead and avoid any exercise like running or jumping that may put stress on that area.
When you’re constipated. If you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, exercise can help with constipation.
During menopause. Working out during menopause can decrease the symptoms associated with menopause. Many women think it may exacerbate the symptoms, such as making hot flashes worse, but it actually does the opposite!
During pregnancy. It helps to ease pain, can help keep your blood pressure in a healthy range, helps with swelling, and can keep you at a healthy weight. If you’re close to labor or have issues with hypertension, your doctor may advise against it and recommend bed rest instead. Be sure to ask your doctor!
Gluten-free cookies. Gluten-free breads. There’s even gluten-free pizza! Suddenly, it seems as if gluten is the new bad guy in the grocery aisles. But what is that gluten stuff, and is it something you need to avoid?
For most people, gluten isn’t a nutritional bad guy at all. Gluten is a type of protein commonly found in wheat and wheat products such as bread, pasta, pastries, and even root beer and some candies. But about 1 percent of the population has difficulty digesting gluten—for those people, gluten damages parts of the small intestine, which in turn makes it harder for the body to absorb nutrients during digestion.
That condition, called celiac disease, can cause a delay in puberty and stunt growth if it goes undiagnosed in teens. Some of the symptoms include stomachaches, diarrhea, weight loss, and abdominal cramps.
Other symptoms that can be harder to spot are joint pain, fatigue, and anemia. The only way to really treat celiac disease is to adopt a glutenfree diet, which gets rid of symptoms and gets the digestive system back on track.
People with celiac disease aren’t the only ones choosing a gluten-free diet. An increasing number of people have gluten sensitivities, meaning that they test negative for celiac disease but still experience some of the symptoms. Still others choose to adopt a gluten-free diet because they think it’s better somehow. Those consumers are part of the reason we see more gluten-free products in stores.
A gluten-free diet doesn’t have to limit a person’s food options. For example, in general, meat, fish, poultry, milk, fruits, and vegetables are gluten-free.
