Posture, Growth and Healthy Emotions

Your spine is the structural support system of your body. At any age child, teenager, adult or senior – how your spine supports you can be seen in your posture. Posture reveals weaknesses that can progressively worsen under the stresses of daily life as you grow and age. Because your structure, spine and nervous system are the lifeline of health and energy to all the vital organs of your body, it is important to pay attention to your posture before pursuing prescription medications or over the counter remedies for physical and emotional health problems or imbalances. Many of these medications have serious side effects and do not get to the cause of the instability affecting you.

Postural distortions may look very slight on the outside or they may be obvious. They can cause rapid degeneration of your metabolism and immune system on the inside or take years to manifest. Both systems are crucial for your overall health and vitality. Falls, car accidents, sports injuries, trauma and even the birth process can accelerate degeneration of the spine, leading to disability and a shorter life span. People that have spinal injuries or vertebral subluxation may have it and not feel it. Uncorrected, it can cause degenerative changes and nerve interference. Someone with a subluxation may not function as well in everyday life and may not enjoy the same quality of life as people with a healthy structure, spine, and nervous system.

Get great posture NOW

Regardless of the condition of your spine and nervous system today, there is potential within you for better health and happiness tomorrow and as you mature physically and emotionally and as your body heals. Postural and structural weakness can cause someone to experience chronic or disabling pain, a weakened immune system, lower energy, fatigue, digestive difficulties, less satisfaction with personal relationships, and a shorter life. Dr. Freeman published findings in the Journal of the American Medical Association stating, “Aging in the spinal discs caused postural deviations leading to intestinal diverticula, hemorrhoids, varicosities of the legs, osteoporosis, hip and foot deformities, overall poor quality of health and life and a shortened life span.”

Postural distortions and a weaker spinal structure can have a major effect on a person’s overall strength and health, which can even have an effect on their earning potential when in the workforce. Later, these distortions can cause accelerated aging and may make you feel older than your chronological age because there is interference in nerve supply to your organs, muscles and joints. A simple Posture Self-Test can determine if you or a loved one, children included, have underlying conditions that can lead to anxiety, chronic pain, disability and accelerated aging. A chiropractic examination and regular adjustments can help relieve pressure on the nervous system so messages delivered to and from the brain can be delivered.

When Snoring Becomes a Problem

When Snoring Becomes a Problem

by Christian Goodman

Snoring it’s something we all grow up knowing about. Granddaddies snore after Thanksgiving dinners. Moms tease dads about their snoring and sometimes it’s mom who snores. The point is, snoring is quite common. At some point we have all snored or known of someone who did.
What we cannot all readily discern however, are the reasons behind snoring.
The Stop Snoring Exercise Program” forced me to examine various causes of snoring and incorporate them into the system.
Why we snore?
First of all, it may be hereditary. That’s right; certain physical characteristics may just be family traits we can’t avoid. Large tonsils and adenoids can contribute to snoring. Gender can increase your odds of snoring.  Males tend to snore more.  Age also contributes.  The older most people get, the less toned they are.  Muscle tone or rather the lack of around the throat can lead to snoring. Reduced air flow through the nose due to an illness or having allergies can result in snoring as well as a poor night’s rest.
Contributors like that are not within our control. We can change some of the other reasons that we snore. Among these ‘changeable’ reasons are such things as being overweight or out of shape, a history of smoking, alcohol, medications, or simply our sleep posture.
Issues from Snoring
People who snore suffer. So do those who love and live with them. Couples resign themselves to separates rooms when sleeping – creating distance where normally closeness would reign. Our physical and emotional well being suffer. We have study after study proving the value of a good night’s sleep. But we also have sleep studies proving that snoring is waking many up throughout the night. It’s a nuisance that’s robbing us of the most rewarding ‘deep’ sleep that our bodies crave.
Do You Know How you Snore?
Snoring with a closed mouth can be the result of tongue position.  It can deter air passage. If you sleep with your mouth open, it’s much more likely that your throat tissues are causing this bothersome Zzzzzzzz. Those sleeping on their backs have cases that are generally milder in nature. A change in position and concentration on good posturing will often give this group relief.
When snoring occurs in all sleeping postures and mouth positions, additional issues may present. For the larger majority however, a simple lifestyle change to get in better shape or some attention to finding a position for optimal air passage can make a difference in a sleepless night and a night full of rest.

Christian Goodman is a well known natural health researcher and the creator of many natural health alternatives. A recent work is his stop snoring treatment, which has now provided help to thousands of people to stop snoring.
