Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) March 26, 2008
According to many experts in the field of physical therapy, it's simply a myth that individuals with arthritis can't exercise. In fact, most agree that the right exercise program can help reduce joint pain and stiffness, increase flexibility and promote overall health.
Developed by The Arthritis Foundation, the AFEP (Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program) is a community-based, non-clinical recreational exercise program that includes activities aimed at improving endurance and joint motion. Designed specifically for persons with arthritis, AFEP takes into consideration pain, fatigue and decreased strength and motion.
Carol J. Buck, CEO of Xenna Corporation (http://www.xenna.com) , a distributor of natural foot care products, says "Exercise takes a mental commitment to do it EVERY DAY. Human nature being what it is, any excuse to skip a day - be it the weather or your feet - will be used. Proper foot care to assure feet are moisturized is a step in the right direction. We developed acid-free CalleX® Dry Heel Ointment (http://www.callexointment.com) to address the problem of dry, rough skin on feet."
Used by many podiatrists, but also found in the foot care section of chain drugstores and mass retailers, CalleX Ointment uses patented natural enzymes, rather than acids, to exfoliate dry, rough and scaly skin on heels, soles and toes as it hydrates the skin with a moisture-barrier base.
Another deterrent to regular or group exercise that so important to seniors - especially those with arthritis - is embarrassment about the appearance of one's toenails. For toenails that are discolored or thickened, Xenna's Foot Care line offers NonyX® Nail Gel (http://www.nonyx.com). As Buck points out, "Proper foot care from heel to toe, makes adhering to exercise regimens easier because your feet are no longer an embarrassment on the exercise floor or in the pool."
All natural NonyX Nail Gel exfoliates the dark, yellow or thick granular material called keratin debris, which can build up under nails over time. With regular use, the gel softens, breaks down and then clears out unattractive keratin debris under the nail using natural ethanoic acid, and permits it to be scraped out from under the nail beginning after about four weeks. Once keratin debris is removed, NonyX Gel keeps nails looking clear and attractive with regular use.
Patented and money-back guaranteed, Xenna products are never tested on animals and made in the USA.
