Sharing the wisdom of treating every individual as a whole person rather than a collection of symptoms or fragmenting the body into several disease diagnoses.

A healthy perspective

My mother was right

I can still remember my mother constantly reminding me that I had to stand up straight. My father would jokingly remark “you look like a question mark???” I walked miles with the encyclopedia Britannica on my head hoping to not only stand up straight but become more intelligent! Those were the days.

As years went by, I became more sedentary, slouching over books and later the computer for long hours. I had to schedule my walks and later joined a gym to force myself to move. And the I found dance…

This straightened a lot of my attitudes and my walk thanks to my dance teacher and mentor, Judy! If I did not stand up straight, I would be dragged around the dance floor!!!

I bring this short TEDx video to share some quick and easy steps we can practice daily to be pain free.

Who knew……?

The theory behind this is that receptors in your feet, jaw, eyes, and muscles send information to your brain. Your brain then analyzes this information and commands your postural muscles!

Due to our lifestyle, we develop imbalances in the body that throw off the signals sent to the brain. When the brain receives inaccurate information, it cannot optimize your posture!

This can lead to:

  • Pain
  • Injury
  • Poor performance
  • Poor cognition
  • Poor digestion
  • Low mood

The eyes have it!

Key point: Improve the brain-body connection by identifying these imbalances and treating the root cause.
