Mind/Body workout for chemo fatigue

After that last post about chemo brain, the findings from this study just came out: "Mind/Body Workout Fights Chemo Fatigue."

The study enrolled 269 cancer patients in an 9-hour/week intense exercise program for six weeks. It included high-intensity physical training, body-awareness training (yoga/pilates), relaxation training, and massage. They found a significant reduction in fatigue and increase in vitality. The findings are not too surprising, but it's still nice to have a study proving it.
