She needs to generate heat in the body in a gentle way, like Islamic prostrations. There is a discussion here on the benefits of exercise mixed with devotion and its great benefits. Doing 108 a day is very good (they do not need to be done all in one go). Absolute minimum in Islam is 4 and 3 in Buddhism.

Other exercise options are Tai Chi, Yoga and Aikido as these are circular and grounding. No jumping, jogging, bike riding etc. Cut back on eating excess meat – 1-2 times a week is OK. Eating less meat results in a lower chance of developing the top ‘killers’ such as heart disease, cancer, obesity etc. Look at book //The China Study//.

Self massage with warm Vata massage oil using 1 ounce/ 30ml a day.
