<b>We’re told that we need to exercise to stay healthy, but we’re not told HOW to exercise. We’re certainly not told how to exercise with an autoimmune condition. This is the definitive book you need to help you understand and support your body when exercising with an autoimmune condition.</b>

Here, Zoe tells us of her own health journey, whilst exploring the benefits of exercise for someone with an autoimmune condition and how you can get onto a plan that suits your needs. She uses case studies, experts and her own research to explore:

– the benefits of exercising with a chronic condition

– the barriers to exercising with a chronic condition and how to overcome them

– how to keep motivation high when exhausted

– which exercises you should do (complete with illustrations)

– how to adapt your exercises depending on your condition

– how to get into the right mindset with exercise

Zoe teaches with compassion and understanding that is unique in this field and brings to market a guide that covers all aspects of exercising with chronic conditions, including simple, clear practices that you can put into action and meld into part of your balanced lifestyle programme.

What a gift to the world this book is… beautifully and compassionately written, comprehensive without being overcomplicated and practical yet permissive for readers. – Melissa Williams, integrative physiotherapist and founder of Zebras Australia

Zoe channels her expertise as both an autoimmune patient and a movement therapist into this excellent resource. Zoe carefully unpacks the barriers to exercising with autoimmune illness including fatigue, pain and illness flare and provides practical strategies to overcome these. If you are a person living with autoimmune illness, or a healthcare provider who wants to facilitate meaningful change in your clients’ life, I highly recommend reading this book. – Dr Nikki Tugnet FRACP, MRCP, BMedSci, RYT 500, rheumatologist & internal medicine physician, Yoga Medicine therapeutic specialist

Trying to exercise with an autoimmune disease just got a whole lot easier with Zoe’s insightful guide. It’s reassuring to know this book was written by someone who has an understanding of how movement affects the human body. What sets this book apart is Zoe’s unique perspective – living firsthand with multiple chronic illnesses. This book is a valuable resource, offering a different approach to exercise that understands and respects the complexities of the human body in the face of chronic illness. – Ziyad (AKA The Grumbling Gut)

Exercise is a critical success factor in managing autoimmune diseases. Zoe does a brilliant job breaking down the importance and benefits, and how you can stick to your movement goals. – Donna Mazzola, PharmD, MBA, MS (@drautoimmunegirl)
