An Australian Study has produced the biggest and most compre4hensive review of the literature around the link between exercise and the management of anxiety and depression. It showed that exercise is 1.5 times more effective than counselling and medication. This isn’t to suggest that exercise can replace drugs and counselling but that exercise should be formally built into any medical management of these conditions. The Financial Review’s health editor, Jill Margo, writes that the study found that longer exercise programs were less effective than shorter ones. Patients with Endometriosis treated at Migynae are routinely provided with information around exercise, diet and sleep hygiene as we like so many medical practitioners have seen the results of lifestyle modifications affecting health outcomes.
