MOVE WELL, THINK WELL, EAT WELL
In the quest for optimum health, a well balanced approach intricately involves how we move, think and eat.
EAT WELL –
We covered the essentials to eating well in the previous section (See Nutritional Support).
MOVE WELL – “Life is Motion and Motion is Life”
When speaking about moving well it starts with creating “body balance” through a healthy functioning nervous system.
If the brain and body aren’t communicating clearly then our muscles don’t work properly (faulty neuromuscular control – the brain telling the right muscles to fire in the right amounts in the right order) and we are not upright in gravity properly due to poor posture which results from these muscle imbalances. When this foundational issue gets corrected the human frame can move and can appropriately handle the stresses of life as the body was designed to.
Once our patients reach a point where the nervous system has stabilized, we recommend a variety of custom tailored stretching and strengthening exercises that can be performed at home with little to no equipment. We also are partners with yoga instructors that will instruct you in your own home catered to your specific physical condition. As well we recommend local yoga studios that have classes with a range of difficulty levels which can benefit our patients on both physical and spiritual planes.
