How to improve your posture

In modern day society we live with all the advantages that the world has brought us, including big screen TV’s with countless channels to choose from; easily accessible transport allowing us to commute and travel extensively for holidays or work; computers, smartphones and tablets help us manage both our personal and professional life, while the internet provides us an immeasurable source of knowledge and entertainment at our fingertips. These elements alone have improved our lifestyle tenfold, they have become a huge part of our everyday life. The negative result though is that we are far less active, we are often seated for long periods of time, spending hours sitting on the couch, watching television or playing on our I-pad, or possibly locked in our seat during our regular commute.

“Throughout your life the most profound influences on your health, vitality and function are not the Doctors you have visited or the drugs, surgery, or other therapies you have undertaken. The most profound influences are the cumulative effects of the decisions you make about your diet and lifestyle on the expression of your genes.” Jeffrey S Bland author of Genetic Nutritioneering Our modern day society subsists on a diet which considers grains as a fundamental part of our daily food intake.

Generic gym programs are a joke!

Traditional generic gym programs are designed for the masses and for that reason they are often simplified or dumbed down for those who are not gym literate.

Adrenal Fatigue

“One must not forget that recovery is brought about not by the physician, but by the sick man himself. He heals himself, by his own power, exactly as he walks by means of his own power, or eats, or thinks, breathes or sleeps.” Georg Groddeck What is Adrenal fatigue?

The adrenals help you cope with stress and their effect is evident across every organ and gland in your body, influencing how you feel both physically and mentally. When your adrenals aren’t functioning up to par, the effects can range from mild to dramatic. People who are suffering from low adrenal function have a tendency toward allergies, arthritic pain and decreased immune response. Women...
