Katie: Welcome to the Wellness Mama Podcast. I’m Katie from and That’s wellnesse with an E on the tip, my new private care line. I’m again right this moment with Eileen Durfee, who’s a former nuclear energy plant engineer and who has battled by lots of her personal well being issues to search out shocking options. And on this one, we go deep on a unique matter. I’ll hyperlink to our first episode within the present notes at However she has found out a extremely revolutionary resolution that helps misalignment of spinal posture that’s associated to again and neck issues, particularly issues attributable to us residing in a contemporary society, and slouching over, and searching down at telephones method an excessive amount of. And we go deep into the causes and the options on this episode. The excellent news is it’s simpler than you’ll count on. And he or she says we must always by no means do sit-ups once more. In order that and way more on this episode. Let’s soar in. Eileen, welcome. Thanks for being right here once more.

Eileen: Oh, effectively, thanks for having me.

Katie: I feel this matter is particularly essential in right this moment’s world when issues like again and neck ache are on the rise, I’m guessing, partially as a result of we’re all observing a cellphone as a substitute of maintaining our head the place it’s alleged to be. However we’re gonna delve into all of that right this moment. So, to start out broad, stroll us by, I do know that you just’ve performed some deep-dive analysis on this, however what are a number of the causes of again and neck ache?

Eileen: Nicely, the primary factor is gravity. Individuals don’t understand how a lot power your physique spends to carry you upright. And the primary downside comes into play when you consider the event of the spinal column. , when infants are born, they’re, like, curled up in a C form, they usually can’t stroll as a result of they don’t have curvature of their backbone. So, you understand, they begin crawling and also you begin seeing the event of curves. But it surely actually takes 18 years to develop correct curvature and ossification or the hardness, the density of the bones. However guess what? Our athletic coaching system for the youth just isn’t doing the right workout routines to provide everybody superb curvature. Most kids usually are not getting it, then, you understand, you might have repetitive accidents. I imply, I might go on and on about why, you understand, in America, simply on low again ache alone, we spend $100 billion a 12 months. And lots of these, you understand, cures, so to talk, surgical procedure, and this and that, don’t at all times work. How many individuals have had again ache? How many individuals are you aware have again ache or persistent again issues that they’ll’t eliminate? It’s an epidemic.

Katie: Yeah, completely. And definitely, there’s a lot info on this. And I’m guessing there’s gonna be, like, some very clear and straightforward issues that folks simply haven’t considered. Like, as an example, I interviewed somebody as soon as, it was so much about shoulder ache. And he beneficial…he mentioned if individuals would simply grasp by their arms for 3 minutes a day, even when it was damaged up in little chunks however grasp, that might remove so most of the causes of shoulder ache. Like, a part of that is that we’re not transferring how people had been meant to maneuver. And so it feels like that’s, type of, the identical factor that’s occurring with our again in our neck, proper?

Eileen: Sure. Sure, it’s. And, you understand, we’ll floss and we’ll brush our tooth, those we wanna preserve. However what are we doing to take care of correct curvature or get it should you by no means had it? , we’ve these, you understand, issues which are easy, such as you say, that we might do every day that might make an enormous distinction. And that’s due to my entire historical past of what I went by from the time I used to be born to various things that occurred to me why that is so major for me as a result of, you understand, everyone’s drained. Nicely, let’s scale back the quantity of power your physique has to spend simply to exist in gravity. There are some nice issues that folks can implement to make a distinction of their lives.

Katie: So, let’s begin speaking by a few of these issues. Like I mentioned, I’m positive that there’s in all probability, like, the two-part factor. One, we have to cease doing the issues which are inflicting the issue and possibly we have to combine some issues which are gonna assist repair the issue. So stroll us by a few of these specifics.

Eileen: Okay. Nicely, there’s lots of ahead head posture occurring. , at the same time as early as kids with heavy backpacks on their again and simply focusing down at gadgets and every thing else, when you might have your head down, the drive of gravity is gigantic and your muscle groups tighten up. And so, what do individuals do? They could go get a therapeutic massage to eliminate a decent muscle or they could take Advil or muscle relaxers or, you understand, use CBD or no matter it’s. However the important thing issue you’re not taking a look at is the form in gravity. As a result of in case you have right curvature, there’ll be, you understand, like 20 instances much less the quantity of gravitational drive activating the set off of the muscle groups. So, similar to brushing and flossing your tooth, we have to do the neck flexion train. That may strengthen two muscle groups that everybody forgets. , we’re physique muscle overload. We’re doing all of those workout routines to strengthen our muscle groups however we’re not trying particularly on the muscle groups that induce correct curvature. There’s the multifidus and the internal spinalis muscle groups that we have to work. And we’ve to do two issues concurrently as a way to activate these.

So there’s one specific train we developed, what we name the neck shaper, to place this facepiece in your face like a masks and it has a bar which you could add resistance along with your fingers. However you possibly can actually do a free physique train the place you get up and look as much as the ceiling along with your eyes. It’s naturally gonna carry your head all the way in which again in order that your brow and chin are, like, near horizontal to the ceiling. So, should you search for, you understand, so that you’re stress-free and that’s the place the place of the train begins. So then you possibly can take your fingers, your fingers, put them in your cheekbones, and start placing strain. And then you definately simply merely, like, you’re gonna nod your head, you carry your chin right down to a stage place, you understand, you’re placing that mild drive in opposition to the face. After which as soon as your chin is stage, you principally chill out the neck muscle groups. You retain the drive in your cheeks along with your fingers and also you simply push your chin again, maintaining, you understand, your head again, maintaining your chin stage. And whenever you do this…you get up whenever you’re doing this. While you do this correctly, your backbone’s truly gonna grow to be extra versatile the place you truly start growing a curve within the decrease again.

And that is superb with this neck shaper, you understand, you possibly can typically begin out, you understand, even with out the piece of kit, you possibly can, like, do six of these each hour, simply gently. And there’s individuals with bulged discs, you understand, neck ache that radiates clear down into their arms and every thing else. However that’s only a easy train that they’ll do through the day but in addition do issues like make it possible for your laptop monitor or your gadget is ready the place you possibly can, you understand, preserve your head to the purpose the place your chin is stage and also you take a look at it. You’re not cranking your neck to search for. You’re not cranking your neck to look down. I imply, the rationale why we’ve the neck shaper the place you can actually, you understand, put some drive and develop these neck muscle groups, you understand, is in order that similar to you eat meals and meals will get between your tooth, you understand, whenever you floss it, you understand, brush, then every thing’s again to regular, that’s the identical factor. Your physique is supposed to be versatile to look down, search for. However after we’re not doing the issues to strengthen the multifidus and internal spinalis muscle groups, then you definately step by step lose the curvature, after which muscle groups get tight, after which ache develops.

Now, the neat factor about our backbone is that if we’ve the right curvature, there’s these bones on the again, they’re known as sides, however what they do is that they interlock. When you might have the curvature of your backbone, the adjoining vertebrae have this bone-on-bone contact that’s tremendous sturdy. It’s like when you might have the curvature, your backbone can’t exit of whack as a result of it’s bone-on-bone that protects you from drifting off form. However if you end up reaching, head down, or no matter, then these bones on the again don’t make contact. After which the muscle groups which are maintaining you from having a slipped disc or a vertebra that goes out of whack is that multifidus and that internal spinalis muscle. And so we have to have drive approaching high of us. It’s thought of anterior drive. That’s your fingers in your cheekbones pushing, that’s anterior drive.

Then you must have some posterior help. And, you understand we’ve received an entire line of spinal health tools popping out which have a specialised groove in it so you possibly can arch your neck over it. And the little pointy bone on the again of your backbone is known as a spinous. So if we are able to let that spinous float, not contact something, after which the perimeters of your vertebrae, these edges, these are known as the transverse course of, then they catch these shapes. It’s type of like, you understand, a prepare follows a prepare observe. It’s like, we wanna do the identical factor for the backbone. So we wanna have a selected form beneath, then we wanna have drive on high, after which we wanna have muscular co-contraction. So this neck flexion that I described is simply essential for anyone who’s utilizing any type of digital gadget.

After which we’ve the neck shaper now. I imply, you can even lay down on a flat bench, use some train bands on the bar on the neck shaper. , you possibly can wad up a towel beneath your neck and you can do the neck flexion train that method. There’s simply lots of issues that influence your physique, however like, if our neck is, like, ahead, you understand, between our hips, you understand, our torso and our head, if it’s a grand whole of 4 inches ahead…you understand, usually whenever you get up, the hamstrings have zero muscle effort. However let’s say from my waist to my head, I’m 4 inches ahead over the middle of my hips, that hamstring muscle might be firing and tight, resisting 983 kilos. That’s mathematically calculated. So anyone can get up proper now listening to this podcast, get up the place you suppose you’re straight, are your hamstrings tight? If they’re, you do not need the mechanical benefit, your physique’s spending power holding you in gravity that it doesn’t must and also you’re sporting off edges of your bones, your scrunching discs, and inflicting untimely growing older. There’s all types of issues to do with gravity. Gravity just isn’t your good friend until you might have the appropriate form.

Katie: That’s actually astounding. So over 900 kilos of strain, simply by way of misalignment. What about…? As a result of actually, like again ache appears to be on the rise and neck ache as effectively. And I see individuals, like, on Instagram utilizing various kinds of again braces or these, type of, like, contraptions that pull their shoulders again. What do you consider these? Does that assist counteract the neck misalignment in any respect?

Eileen: Nicely, it principally treats the symptom. Like, you bought a flat tire as a result of there’s a nail in it, and also you refuse to take the nail out, however you’ll carry a compressed air can round to pump up your tire on a regular basis to take care of the sluggish leak. That’s what I feel these issues are for. , it’s good to go get a therapeutic massage, you understand, eliminate the tight muscle groups however it’s like a bent crankshaft within the motor. , I imply, for correct tolerances for every thing to work, there’s sure alignment, you understand, that should occur. And it’s principally the curvature within the backbone that offers you the mechanical benefit. So, for correct correction, for therapeutic quicker from accidents, stopping accidents, what you should do is purchase the form that’s most effective in gravity as a result of there’s like three curves within the backbone. You bought your neck curve, you understand, then your thoracic space curves again after which to a low again curve after which the sacral curve. So you might have these three curves that you should correctly develop and keep.

And, you understand, you gotta do what you gotta do. , should you gotta do some traction, should you, you understand, do some issues that quickly relieve the ache, however individuals are gonna understand that these sorts of issues are like having a ball and chain round your ankle. You’re at all times having to do them since you at all times return to the purpose, you understand, the place you had been at. And so, it’s actually essential to have the leverage factors. Like, if any person’s gonna transfer an enormous rock, it’s actually large and heavy, they usually get this lengthy bar they usually can put the bar down on the backside beneath that rock however then they put a bit of wooden or a block or one thing beneath it to allow them to get some leverage to drag on that they usually’ll be stronger. What we do is we put the physique over like that block, a fulcrum, after which we put drive on high, after which we induce the curvature by strengthening sure muscle groups that solely could be strengthened in case you have simultaneous posterior help, anterior help, and muscular co-contraction, then it develops curvature the place you possibly can…

I imply, I can take an athlete right here and check their hamstring tightness, check how far they’ll attain, and I can have them do 1 set of perhaps 10 to fifteen neck flexions, a sit-up over this arch. It’s received a unique curvature than, like, an train ball. You don’t get the appropriate curvature simply arching over an train ball. So we’ve a specialised cushion with the groove in it in opposition to…whenever you arch over it, you understand, you’re aligning your backbone, and also you’re doing these sit-ups. After which we’ve one other cushion that you’ve this pelvic tilt the place it’s received a form beneath and you place the drive on high. And I can do one set of every of these and rise up to 6-inch attain enchancment in an athlete the place they’ll get up and never have any tight hamstrings. They’re like going, “Man, I didn’t have to carry my shoulders again anymore. My shoulders are naturally…I really feel taller. I really feel lighter.” And that’s only one set of workout routines.

And so, that’s my resolution. , I nearly must chortle after I see that factor on Instagram the place it has this little necklace that’s like an alarm so it might probably sense whenever you’re hunching, so it vibrates and it goes off. , so anyone with extreme again ache, you understand, simply telling them to face up straight doesn’t imply a lot. Like, me, I used to be nearly a miscarriage. My hips got here out twisted. I needed to put on, like, particular footwear. Each time I walked, my one knee hit the opposite one. I used to be in persistent ache. I imply, a number of the eighth graders grew 9 inches in three months. And I by no means received that curvature. Then I used to be run over in a car parking zone by a automotive. I couldn’t even breathe with out extreme ache like any person was stabbing me a number of instances within the chest. So, I’ve been by it with again ache.

And I got here to know a chiropractor. He’s, you understand, handed on. However he did some implausible work with the U.S. Olympic group and NFL groups, simply so occurs lots of those that win all of the Tremendous Bowls as a result of he taught them these workout routines. And, you understand, I used to be instructed I’d by no means be capable to raise my fingers over my head after the automotive ran me over. But it surely was by these workout routines that I’ve used just about my entire life which have saved me…I imply, I’ve received good bone density. I don’t have any deteriorating discs. I don’t have…A bunch of edges in my bones wore off. And I do know that it’s simply correct care of the physique to get it into the form and gravity as a result of gravity is gonna win. It’s such as you see, you understand, infants are C form, take a look at all of the outdated individuals, they’re, like, bent over holding a cane and strolling. See they’ve misplaced their curvature. The longer you will get and keep that curvature, the extra cellular you’re gonna be, the much less ache you’re gonna have.

Katie: That makes full sense. I’ve mentioned so many instances, I feel we are able to be taught a lot from kids. And definitely, motion is a type of issues. Like, should you watch a child that’s simply discovered find out how to stroll, as soon as they get their stability, their squat is ideal. And so they use their entire physique once they transfer. And if we attempt to sustain with them, I’m fairly positive we’d be exhausted in about 12 minutes. However we are able to be taught so, a lot from them. And I’ve additionally heard you say that there’s just a few in style workout routines that folks do that truly can weaken the core construction and make a few of these issues worse. And I really feel like there’s undoubtedly some misadvice occurring. So, are you able to stroll us by what you imply by that?

Eileen: Proper. Nicely, lots of, you understand, the athletes are doing lots of workout routines to strengthen their muscle groups. , they usually’re not taking a look at, you understand, have they got right impartial posture or do they a flat decrease again, you understand? There’s simply lots of completely different belongings you gotta consider on an athlete to know whether or not they need to be doing these heavy, heavy squats or whether or not they need to give up doing the leg curls with the knee joint, and various things like that. , I’ve heard, like, even with Tom Brady, now, he doesn’t do weightlifting. Every little thing’s about mobility and adaptability. So I feel that’s beginning, you understand, to come back round. However there’s an analysis that must be performed on an individual after which to have the ability to add, you understand, or modify, you understand, the workout routines. So, it’s actually onerous as a result of it’s, you understand, so individualized, you understand, for particular person, you understand, to particular person so far as what they need to do.

However basically, for exercising the higher physique, you understand, what’s good for it, you understand, dips are good. Pull-ups are good. , pec deck issues are good. And whenever you isolate leg and arm muscle groups, you gotta make it possible for it does one thing to the place it’s not placing stress on the posture of your backbone, like on the again of the backbone. Like, strict standing or seated bicep curls or squats may cause the posterior again muscle groups to work to stabilize that weight mass when it goes ahead from the spinal column. , so regardless that they’re meant for leg or arm, you’re actually exercising these again muscle groups, which is a poor mechanical benefit, you understand.

So, you understand, like, modify the curls, you understand. Just remember to’re utilizing a type of tilted benches to cease the drive from reaching the again as a result of, you understand, like, I do know myself, like, you understand, I’ve an outdated harm in my proper shoulder. So I generally tend…you understand, I can’t raise as a lot with that arm and I’ll effort extra, and so it’s going to pull on my low again extra on the appropriate facet than on the left facet. , in order that’s all unhealthy. , so leg presses for muscle groups on the entrance of the leg, lots of instances, you understand, these athletes which have considerably good curvature might nonetheless do lots of mild with lots of reps. But when they begin doing actual heavy and do these items, then it’s going to put a pressure on their low again. And that’s the place lots of, like, the soccer gamers and phone accidents are gonna have issues. , so these are just a few issues.

So what we must always keep away from. So again extension, bent over slides, seated rows, that causes the posture of your again muscle groups to make use of immediately within the train, type of like a drive of impact. So we don’t wanna activate the posture of your again muscle groups for use as major movers, you understand, in train. So, you understand, you are able to do different workout routines to strengthen these muscle groups with out doing these. So we simply wanna scale back accidents to the again, however strengthen our muscle groups and strengthen our core.

Katie: That is sensible. I’ve been experimenting with weightlifting extra on this previous 12 months, however making an attempt to ensure I’ve the mobility earlier than that and with it as effectively, utilizing good kind, however I’ve grow to be an enormous fan of something body weight associated. Like, pull-ups or climbing or issues that use our physique in pure methods, I really feel like that’s helped my mobility a ton, but in addition simply because it requires, like, the motion of each arms and each legs. And it appears like a way more deep core exercise than simply doing, as an example, like, crunches or a few of these issues they are saying which are supposed to assist our core health. I discover that extra pure human actions, once more, like infants would do are a lot extra useful for the core. Is that what you discover as effectively that, like, there’s, like, a deep core motion past simply what we consider as core workout routines?

Eileen: Yeah, effectively, see these typical core workout routines usually are not strengthening the multifidus or the internal spinalis muscle groups. So it’s not inducing correct curvature. It’s truly stressing and over-strengthening sure muscle groups that make you lose curvature. So sure, the motion with out the weights is absolutely good, however there’s an actual lack in the entire trade to have the ability to say, “Okay. You are able to do these workout routines three to 5 days every week for eight weeks and we are able to get you again to regular posture.” Who can say that? No person. As a result of they don’t have the flexibility to induce that curvature. And it’s truly gonna be extra than simply the neck shaper. We now have the neck shaper proper now and we’re proper now pouring…we’re getting the densities proper on the froth cushions which have the groove just like the prepare observe for the neck and for the low again, and we’re gonna have them in 5 completely different diameters and three completely different densities as a result of everyone’s at a unique spot. They’re both actually injured, tremendous ahead head posture, tremendous flat again.

We received all these items we gotta take care of, so we received a unique cushion the place any person can then do a twist and lay over these items, you understand, so that you get your discs the place they go from a sponge to a liquid. You lay over this, it induces the appropriate form. You chill out. Gravity, you understand, just isn’t your enemy anymore. Bones truly drift the place you’re laying on this. After which growth, after 20 minutes, your discs go from a liquid state again to a foam state, and also you rise up and it’s, like, completely superb what you do. That’s like brushing your tooth. You simply do this every single day. After which we’re gonna have the cushion. Now, we received completely different top of individuals, plus we received completely different densities, that’s received the groove in it. It’s the one which’s utilized by the New England Patriots, the Dallas Cowboys, and New York Giants, and the Jets. All of them have this. Marcus Paul, God relaxation his soul, earlier than he handed away, he had known as me wanting extra as a result of he discovered my title with Dr. Sugar. However Dr. Sugar handed on and he was only a loopy mad scientist. And all these NFL groups, they don’t need anyone else to know that they received the key to, you understand, run quicker, soar tougher, push tougher, and never get dislocations and every thing like this, however the basic inhabitants wants it.

So it’s like a cushion. They’ll have an built-in neck factor on it. And also you principally do three workout routines, and it’s transformational. I don’t know. There was a man who rented certainly one of our household business buildings and his child fell off of a trampoline, and he’d gone to all of the bodily therapists and every thing however he was having these seizures every single day. He was over right here and I had these ugly foam reject cushions that we’ve been taking part in round with densities, and surfaces, and all that. So I taught him find out how to do the again twist and to put down on these cushions. And the dad received ahold me every week later and he says he’s by no means had a seizure since. Now, this has been, you understand, nearly a 12 months now. And this child takes these cushions with him all over the place in his backpack and he does them faithfully every single day.

I imply, there was one other man in California that received certainly one of my prototype neck shapers, and actually, he was scheduled for neck surgical procedure. And nothing would eliminate his neck ache. Three days of doing the neck shaper, simply six reps like each hour, it’s similar to having this little gadget there and also you simply do it. , you don’t put lots of strain on. You don’t harm your self or something however simply he stretches. After three days, all of his ache was gone and he’s canceled his surgical procedure. Now, that’s been 5 months, nonetheless no want for surgical procedure. It’s simply gravity. Oh my gosh.

So, you understand, we gotta do every thing we are able to to right our curvature since you gotta understand that these tight muscle groups are there to inform you, “Don’t drift any farther out of whack. It’s gonna worsen. It’s gonna be worse in your physique.” So it’s a self-protective mechanism. We’re getting tight muscle groups. So we received to induce the appropriate form after which the muscle groups will chill out. You’ll have higher rotation and mobility. So, yeah, it’s similar to, that is my ardour to get this out to the world as a result of it’s simply not being taught. I imply, it shouldn’t be…nobody ought to ever do an everyday sit-up, ever. If you must, take a sleeping bag, a rolled-up sleeping bag as a result of the blow-up train ball, the curvature just isn’t proper. Like, roll up a sleeping bag after which arch over that sleeping bag, you understand, bend your knees, have your butt on the bottom, arch again over, and also you’re gonna discover out you’re not gonna be capable to arch again over very far.

However that’s okay. Simply go so far as you possibly can, type of, like, grasp your head, after which simply don’t curl your chin right down to your chest. You simply, type of, lead along with your chest and do, like, a sit-up and arch over that. , I simply say, “Don’t do any extra situps.” You gotta arch over that. After which you can have, like, your good friend put resistance in your chest by placing their fingers in your pec muscle groups and simply basic resistance as you attempt to sit up. That’s your anterior drive. You bought your form. I imply, it doesn’t have the groove like our tools should actually, like, stretch the vertebrae and align it as you’re doing the train, however you’re gonna get the muscular co-contraction. You’re gonna get the drive, and it’s gonna strengthen the multifidus and the internal spinalis muscle groups and begin growing that low again curve that you just want.

And so far as, you understand, I talked about doing the again twist and laying down over some cushions, you should use specifically folded bathtub towels. Principally, you are taking a shower towel and also you fold it in half so it’s not lengthy anymore, then you definately fold in every finish in order that they don’t contact one another so there’s a couple of 1-inch hole within the center, then you definately roll it up and you are taking rubber bands on both facet as a result of relying on how fluffy your bathtub towel is, you possibly can obtain completely different diameters of that roll. Okay? So that you wanna be capable to modify that. So, whenever you place these rolls, you’re gonna want two of them, one in your low again, one in your neck. So 1 inch, simply discover the highest of your hip bones whenever you’re sitting down. Yow will discover the iliac declaring. So, you place the low again roll 1 inch above that in, you understand, the small of your again. And now the neck, you roll up a type of towels to the place it simply fills the opening. So the again of your head simply barely touches the bottom, form of, you understand, filling up that entire curvature.

However earlier than you lay down on these towels, you principally simply sit on an everyday chair. It’s like after I used to play the cello. My instructor would say, “Sit in your bones.” It was such as you’d arch ahead along with your hips to the place you had been sitting in your pelvic bones, you understand. After which you possibly can simply principally preserve your chin stage and put your arms out like a 90 diploma, type of like a hen wing, you understand, then you definately faux like there’s a rod going by your head all the way in which down by your pelvis. So that you’re maintaining that column straight, okay? Then you definitely rotate. You lead along with your eyes, and look again, and also you arch, and also you simply rotate, you understand, the place your elbow goes all the way in which again. So, you simply commute, forwards and backwards, you do this rotation, main along with your eyes, you understand, then what that does is it pumps blood within the vessels close to the discs, and it causes the rotation or hydration to enter the discs however extra blood movement and it adjustments the discs from that dense foam to extra like a liquid.

So, then we would like you instantly to put down over these two towels I described. One for the low again, one for the neck. You lay down, you understand, along with your legs straight so that you’re simply supine on the ground for 20 minutes. Then whenever you rise up, don’t do a sit-up, roll over to your facet and push up along with your fingers. And it’s such as you could be amazed. , if any listeners have any tight muscle groups, ache, simply utilizing the towels and doing that train might be transformational for you. And so, that’s why we’re developing with three densities. , delicate for the injured, medium for the newbie, and onerous for the athlete. After which we’ve the 5 completely different diameters. So, as your curvature begins to extend, then you possibly can change the diameter and have that help, you understand, in your backbone. And so, you understand, it’s like having had again ache, it’s like you possibly can’t actually deal with a lot of the rest. It’s simply so onerous and it consumes a lot power. I’ve a lot empathy for those that are actually going by it, and that’s lots of people.

Katie: It completely is. And definitely, the options you’re speaking about, studying to maneuver higher and have higher posture and work with gravity as a substitute of in opposition to it after which have these instruments just like the neck shaper, are a a lot simpler and extra pure, and likewise much less painful different than issues like surgical procedures or steroids or so most of the issues which are provided as the primary line of remedy. And I do know…to not say that there’s by no means a spot for these issues however actually, we’re seeing all these issues rise and it’s actually not from a steroid deficiency or a again surgical procedure deficiency. So it’s so significantly better to, like, what you’re doing and handle that root trigger and determine find out how to get our our bodies again in alignment and such as you talked about, all the advantages that go along with that. And to not point out, letting go of these a whole bunch of kilos of additional strain that don’t must be on our backbone simply from studying find out how to stand, and transfer, and exist like a standard human once more, and understand we weren’t meant to stare down at a display screen all day lengthy. I learn that, you understand, our heads are so heavy, even simply that small tilt ahead to have a look at a display screen consistently massively adjustments every thing as a result of every thing stems from the neck. And also you’ve talked about that and defined how principally, that’s a ripple impact all the way in which down, basically, our entire whole physique.

Eileen: Yeah, and other people don’t understand, you understand, that our mind, all of the nerves that management every thing in our physique goes by the spinal column. After which the dura has these little sheaths the place the nerves, you understand, come out in between vertebrae to go feed and management, you understand, the nervous system as a result of we’ve received the parasympathetic nervous system, you understand, we received the sympathetic nervous system. , we received issues going to on a regular basis in our physique.

And so, there’s simply that part that we actually want to consider, the form of that backbone, you understand, and the way after we do get correct curvature, due to the design, bone-on-bone is so sturdy, simply think about with correct curvature, the way it’s, like, tremendous onerous in your backbone to exit of whack. It’s like, these days, you understand, we’ve received all types of issues, even our tissues usually are not as resilient as they was once as a result of we received issues with copper toxicity. So our entire connective tissue, it’s type of like a spiderweb that doesn’t have each horizontal and vertical help members, you understand. So we received dietary facets which are contributing to, you understand, backbone issues, again ache, these sorts of issues as effectively. , so I’m an important proponent…I don’t suppose there’s any silver bullet for something. However, you understand, we’ve to, type of, take a look at gravity as a serious contributor. Sure, let’s do some good weight loss plan. Sure, let’s detoxify. Sure, let’s get some sleep. Let’s watch the solar. , we do all these items collectively and it’s gonna actually make a distinction.
