					 Older age women should be prescribed more moderate to high
intensity activity rather than medicine as a treatment which would
eventually reduce the risk of death in them says QUT study.

QUT's Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation claimed that
instead of the conventional mode of physical and mental health
medication doctors should prescribe customized exercises.

This study stands on the grounds of five years of research looking
into the impact of exercise on mental and physical health in women
over the age of 50, and clearly shows that moderate to vigorous
intensity activity could have mental and physical health benefits.

The research also added that older women should be doing high
intensity exercise for at least 30-45 minutes five times a week, but it
should be tailored to ensure that its high intensity is enough to obtain
the positive sustained effects of exercise.

By promoting healthy ageing has become an important strategy for
reducing morbidity and mortality. The doctors should also develop
exercise programs that are home-based and easy to incorporate as part
of everyday activities.

This study is published in the international journal of midlife health
and beyond, Maturitas.
