Is it OK to Work Out When You’re Sick?


Should you be working out right now?

What if you’re doing all the wrong things to get better, and going to the gym is making you worse?

This Video Was Inspired by Two Things:

1) I was about to go to the gym…

2) I just had another very very sick 1-on-1 private client who was training for a marathon…. for charity no less.

Also, in this video I share what to do, and not to do, when it comes to working out when your’e sick.

Is Leaky Gut Making You Sicker?


One of these things will make you even sicker… possibly triggering a flare.

Another will help you get better, slowly, and help you avoid the ‘inflammation trap’ I see so many people falling into.

In good health,


P.S. – Let me know your experience in the gym in the comments section below.

    This is perfect! As someone with chronic illness I always feel that constant pressure to add exercise back in as an essential part of healing. Each time I have tried my symptoms flare. This last time (starting in January) when I started rebounding and speed walking everyday I actually started to gain weight around my middle, wake up in the night starving, sweating, heart racing, and had an increase in anxiety. I think it was messing with my cortisol. I had to recover from that, and now I have settled into yoga and a gentle modern dance class 2-4 times a week (depending on how I feel). It seems to be working out much better! I think movement is important, but that doesn’t have to mean intensity or long duration. Listening to your body is KEY! Thanks so much for this!
