USE IT OR LOSE IT!
Exercise is more important in the modern world than ever; but often exercise is not fully or properly understood.
The body has many different muscles; some are big and others are tiny. All of these muscles need to remain strong and in balance in order to hold the bodies structure in place. When some muscles remain strong, and others become weak; parts of the body can be pulled into positions that are not natural. As a result bones and tissues can become badly aligned; and this often results in the need for visits to a chiropractor, physiotherapist or osteopath. In extreme cases, it may result in the need for surgery.
Proper and balanced regular exercise throughout life is critical for not only aerobic fitness, but also to maintain a properly functioning set of bones and muscles. Your exercise should be diverse; measured, and include strength training and stretching as much as anything else.
THERE ARE LOTS OF WAYS FORWARD
There are many avenues available to achieve a healthy state and they all work interdependently.
All begin with raising your awareness and understanding. Knowing the human body and what it needs provides a foundation for seeing what is possible. Knowing the techniques and treatments to employ in improving health can then be applied. The response to health issues must always be appropriate to the condition and the peculiar characteristics of the individual concerned.
Many people live in ignorance of their health needs?
Learning more about your personal health, or the needs of the people you love, means raising awareness of your own condition and living a balanced life where all three aspects of health are nourished and cared for. By just recognising this fact you are on your way to making the right decisions to do something positive about your health. This is the key to sustaining good health throughout life.
