Why Try GYROTONIC ®!!  by Dr. Justine Branard...  <>
The body is designed to heal itself. You experienced this when you have a cut and you see the scab form and the skin heal, or maybe you have broken a bone and seen in an x-ray that it knits itself back together. Every time you catch a cold or fight a virus, you experience the healing ability of the body. The immune system jumps in to restore health. But you wouldn't rub dirt in your cut or share a cup with someone who has the flu if you are trying to heal. 
To keep your organism in sync and alive, breath and movement are essential. You intuitively know this; have you sat on an airplane or long car ride and when you finally get to stand up, you naturally stretch your arms and yawn? When Justine worked as a physical therapist in the hospital, the goal was to "get people up and out of bed." Getting up helped bowels move, encouraged better respiration, and decreased pain. Even soon after knee replacement surgery, we got CPM (continuous passive motion) machines on knees to get the joint moving. Movement is needed to improve digestion and respiration, nourish joints, and boost the immune system.
