I have been a hands-on practitioner since 2002. Most of the people I meet have upper and/or lower cross syndrome. This is where the muscles along the front side of the body (anterior chain) have shortened from all the sitting and leaning forward. To compensate, the muscles along the back side of the body (posterior chain), elongate.
In addition to these structural issues, my patients often suffer from magnesium deficiency, causing their muscles to stiffen and spasm. Magnesium is prevalent in sea vegetables and food grown in mineralized soil, which is no longer a common practice.
Other common nutritional deficiencies are amino acids found in the non-skeletal parts of animal products, which support the white tissues of the body: synovial fluid, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, connective tissue, etc.
In my 5 Elements of Health program, I provide the foundational knowledge necessary to determine how you can improve your physical structure. In my Balance Your Elements program, I show you how to correct your structure, how to determine which movement program is best for you, and what supplements or herbs you should be taking to help expedite your improvement.
