Since I’ve been an avid asset mover, I rarely get sick, even when I’m around sick people. (That's another of my awesome motivations for writing my upcoming book, Move Your Assets: From the chair not the bank.)
If I do get sick, it's very short lived. It seems that most of my clients and other avid asset movers have the same claim to fame.
I always sensed there was a really “scientific” basis for feeling awesome after sweating out the sickness.
I just knew there had to be some logical reason, besides just some good mood-producing drugs, that people like my client Robin Lerner tell me her workout with me last week cured her of her ills.
Why, I wondered, do I (and so many others) feel like we sweat the sickness out?
And then 1 week ago an answer came to me in the form of an email from Diana Scimone, one of my amazing clients, friends and the person who kicked my assets to write this book.
The subject line read, “Human Sweat: A Natural Antibiotic” and she prefaced her email by saying, “This is amazing — and one more reason why it's so good to sweat when you feel icky!”
She included a link to an article in Science Daily that quoted doctors and scientists doing research on human sweat. They found that sweat acts as (wait for it) an antibiotic and it's called Dermcidin.
Yes, that sweat that pours off you when you're moving your assets actually fights off "bacteria, fungi, and, viruses."
Pretty amazing, isn't it?
You know me by now…I cannot get enough of this stuff! Here are some excerpts from this amazing report:
"An international team of scientists has discovered how an important natural antibiotic called dermcidin, produced by our skin when we sweat, is a highly efficient tool to fight tuberculosis germs and other dangerous bugs…
"Sweat spreads highly efficient antibiotics on to our skin, which protect us from dangerous bugs."
When I stumble across research that substantiates all the findings that Grandpa Sol and I just seem to inherently get, it makes me so excited to be able to share with you!
What, you don't know who Grandpa Sol is? Oh, you'll meet him in my book — and you'll love him!
Meanwhile, here's the amazing article that will tell you why, when you feel sick, you need to move: Human Sweat: A Natural Antibiotic
Bottom line? When you feel sick, move those assets and sweat! You'll feel a lot better!
