Proof that Exercise Cures
- 37 trials were analyzed by the Cochrane Database to determine that exercise was as effective as therapy and as medication for depression treatment, although these studies were of limited quality.
- Previous trials have demonstrated the efficacy of exercise treatment interventions relative to Zoloft, and the longer-lasting effects of this improvement.
- I recommend beginning with 5-10 minutes of burst exercise (30 seconds of maximal effort and 90 seconds of recovery) and working up to 20 minutes 3+ times per week.
