Forward head posture affects more women then men!

There are two very specific anatomical differences in females and males…well, there may be one more, but that is not what I am talking about! However when it comes to exercise, maintaining structural balance throughout these areas could mean the difference between undesirable pain, aesthetically displeasing features such as sagging breasts , a pooching belly and a “dowagers hump” and  having the body you desire while avoiding injury! The very things that exacerbate these differences, creating the issues that many women struggle with are going to be dependent upon the individual demands placed on the body. For example, forward head posture and rounded shoulders, along with their associated imbalances, can begin early on as women will adopt a slouching posture in an attempt to hide developing breasts.  As well, later on in life, our lifestyles begin to influence repetitive movement patterns which lead to imbalances and the development of compensatory … Continue Reading

Do I Have A Parasite?

If this is a question you are asking yourself, then more likely then not you may have some un-welcomed company! It certainly amazes me within my practice that so many people think that having chronic digestive problems, gas, constipation, skin rashes, pains in the stomach area, fatigue and other “vague” symptoms are just something you have to live with. Parasitic infections contribute to a variety of major diseases including Chron’s disease, ulcerative colitis, arthritis, rheumatoid symptoms, chronic fatigue syndrome, and AIDS.  In one study 50 percent of the people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome had intestinal parasites. This percentage is even higher in people with chronic fatigue syndrome. How many people do you know suffering from chronic fatigue and have been ill for months, but doctors can’t find anything wrong with them? Any person with chronic gastrointestinal complaints such as bloating, diarrhea, abdominal pain, excessive gas, chronic constipation, multiple allergies … Continue Reading

Plantar Fasciitis and Your Foot Wear

As a born and raised San Diego beach girl, as well as having spent 10 years of my life living in the islands, unless the temperatures drop below 50 and the ground is wet, it is very rare you will find me in anything but “slippers” otherwise identified as flip flops! That was of course until I began experiencing foot pain…now you would think that, being an exercise specialist it would have been quite clear what was causing my pain, however, being human, I found myself in a state of denial and deeply saddened that my relationship with my “slippers,”  may very well be coming to an end! What I was certain of was, that what I was experiencing was indeed a mild form of plantar fasciitis, however, because I had jumped back on the running wagon and my pain increased right along with my mileage, it only made sense … Continue Reading

Acid Reflux and GERD

Acid Reflux or Gastro-esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), also known or associated with heartburn and indigestion, happens when acid or bile from the stomach leaks back up through the esophagus, which will irritate and damage the delicate lining of the esophagus. When stomach acid leaks back up into the esophagus, it is called acid reflux. Normally the sphincter, a muscle at the join between the esophagus and stomach, tightens up to stop acid, bile and food coming back up out of the stomach. Acid reflux happens when the sphincter does not work very well, or when the stomach is very full (for example, after a large meal). The esophagus can cope with a small amount of stomach acid or bile, however, if acid reflux is frequent it can damage the sensitive lining of the esophagus. This is when simple heartburn becomes GERD. If the damage to your esophagus leads to inflammation … Continue Reading

Ovarian Cysts

Ovarian cysts are small fluid-filled sacs that develop in a woman’s ovaries. Most cysts are harmless, but some may cause problems such as rupturing, bleeding, or pain; and surgery may be required to remove the cyst(s). There are many possibilities as to how these cysts form as it is a major concern among many women, especially in childbearing age. While a majority of the ovarian cysts are simply functional in nature, some ovarian cysts can turn out to be cancerous. The first step of correctly diagnosing and treating ovarian cysts is to locate the cause of the cyst in the first place.  Clearly, this in and of itself can be a daunting task as ovarian cysts can be triggered by a variety of primary factors and secondary factors. It is imperative to understand these different factors in order to seek appropriate treatment. There are many primary factors, which lead to … Continue Reading
