Posture and Aging

I may be reveling my age, or that I watched to much TV as a kid, but I remember a commercial for hand lotion or dishwashing soap, that compared 2 sets of hands. The commercial asked the viewer to guess which hands were the older, trying to make the point that the product kept your skin looking young. Well certainly looking at someone’s hands is one way to guess their age, but I use a more obvious one – posture and movement. Think about the last time you noticed someone “walking like an old man”, or perhaps you thought that of your self, momentarily straightening your posture and then quickly falling back into the same bad habits. Wii Fit from Nintendo uses posture and balance to help determine your “age”. Click here for the full article.

What did you Eat Today

My health classes, guest speaking commitments, church activities and certainly through every day life experiences affords me the opportunity to speak to many people about their own personal pursuit of reclaiming their health and preventing disease. One of the things I observe in my conversations with people about the subject of health is that often the person becomes consumed with giving up unhealthy foods and yet fails to introduce nutrition to their body. Abstaining from unhealthy food is of highest importance. One cannot reclaim their health or prevent disease as long as they continue to consume dead food void of nutrition. However, as good as removing the unhealthy foods from your daily menu may be, introducing nutritious, healthy and living foods is equally important. I have many friends who call to tell me that they have stop consuming soda, fried foods, fast foods, excessive caffeine, processed foods like candy bars and pastries yet they still are fatigued or they haven’t seen the progress I have experienced. As I interview them for more information I find one common thread between them. They stopped doing all the wrong things or at least some but they never have quite accomplished introducing the right things Click here for the full article.

Health Consciousness

These areas are important to the health conscious person. I would like to expand your thinking to allow for an analysis of your conscious awareness of and sensitivity to specific issues in your constant control that can greatly effect your health.

Get a Grip on Wrist Pain

Our modern lifestyle is hard on the wrist and hands. As our lives become more sedentary, our hands work harder as our feet work less. Work, home and leisure activities include gripping, repetitive motion, finger and wrist flexion, prolonged positions with the hand closed in a fist. Gripping a steering wheel, computer activities, texting, use of tools all create wrist stress. Over time and repetition, these activities can result in weakness of the hand, numbness or tingling in the hand and fingers, grip weakness, pain of the hand wrist and arm.
