Digestive Health-Part 1

Digestive Health-Part 1

In Part 1, I cover how the brain and our connection to food affect digestion. “Our two brains-the one in our head and the one in our bowel-must cooperate.  If they do not, then there is chaos in the gut and misery in the head-everything from “butterflies” to cramps,...

The Calf Stretch

The Calf Stretch

I spent way too long at the computer today. I was on a creative roll and didn’t think to step away until my energy started to crash. Immediately I thought, “I need some coffee to wake me up.” But I knew coffee wasn’t the best choice for me so late in the day so I decided to do my calf stretches instead. Within minutes of doing the calf stretch, I

Our bodies are reflections of nature, and we experience in our bodies cycles similar to the seasons. According to Chinese medicine, each internal organ is associated with an element and season. Mantak Chia explains, “The five elemental phases are expressions of energy that can be observed in nature and throughout the universe. On Earth, they represent the four seasons: winter, spring, summer and fall

Spooning the Restorative Exercise™ Way

Spooning the Restorative Exercise™ Way

I love watching a good movie but dislike sitting on the couch. I tend to tuck my tailbone under as I sink into the slouch couch. When the tailbone is tucked under it flattens the natural lumbar curve putting pressure on the discs of the low back. This C posture also cranes the neck forward and creates excessive abdominal pressure.

Breast Health and Walktober

One of the best things you can do for breast health is letting your arms swing while walking. So what does swinging the arms have to do with breast health? Zoom in on the picture below and you will notice that many of the lymph nodes are concentrated around the armpits. The lymphatic system is our major line of defense against invaders such as bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens.

Our Issues Are in Our Tissues

Our Issues Are in Our Tissues

Being a ladies man can be hard on the joints. Watch the video, his arms are internally rotated like a gorilla’s. He’s definitely a rib thruster (think rooster) and a tailbone tucker (think humper). You can see the tailbone tucking/humping better in his dance videos; just make sure there are no children in the room when you watch it. His chronic knee flexion and his bouncing are going to wear out his knees.

High Heels and The Pelvic Floor

High Heels and The Pelvic Floor

When I’m not aligning uteri I hang out with Bret Michaels at parties and try to look cool. Not really, that’s my husband and me at a wig party, trying to look cool. I was supposed to get the blonde wig, but it looked much better on Russ. His flowing locks remind me of the good ole days when I used to sneak out of the house and drive to Detroit, MI to see heavy metal bands.
