|WHAT IS RX-ERCISE ?
The concept of RX-ercise is simple. It bases itself off the Amercian College of Sports Medicine's
initiative - "Exercise is Medicine". This initiative asks medical professionals to utilize an
individual's activity levels as a vital sign in their health concept. Through the recognition of
activity (or inactivity) levels, medical professionals can predict the probability of an individual's
propensity toward developing a metabolic, biomechanical or psychological issue.
RX-ercise goes one step further...
It asks the medical profession prescribe fitness and activity, in conjunction with prescription
medication to assist in the reduction and eventual dismissal of the non-communicable illness.
By slowly decreasing the patient's reliance on pharmaceuticals and increasing their activity and
fitness levels, the medical professional re-structures the biological response of the person's
physiology, allowing them to live a long, healthy life - without reliance on pharmceuticals.
