 Posture Affects Your Health


Your posture is the window to your spine and nervous system. Meaning, any postural distortions are a reflection of the weakened, distorted structure of  your spine.


Your spinal cord is encased inside your spinal column.  The function of your spinal cord is to carry life and energy from the brain to all the vital organs, tissues and cells of your body. ALL the functions of  your body are totally dependent on that life force coming through your spinal cord which is carried through the nerves, giving your body the optimal chance to function at its highest, God-given potential.


Abnormal, or weakened posture adapts negatively to the continual forces of  gravity. Therefore, our weakened and distorted spines and spinal cords will be subjected to continual and progressive compression as well as tension trauma from the gravitational forces resulting from our poor posture. Progressive breakdown of your posture and its effect on your overall health, has been extensively documented.


Doctors conducting studies at the Shealy Institute, in 1994, have found that posture affects and moderates every physical and mental function of the body. “Spinal pain, blood pressure, headaches, pulse, lung capacity, and mood are only a small portion of the body’s functions that are most easily influenced by posture.”


Freeman was published in the Journal of American Medical Association in 1957 stating that “aging in the spinal discs caused postural deviations leading to intestinal diverticula, hemorrhoids, varicosities of the legs, osteoporosis, hip and foot deformities, overall poor health and quality of life, as well as a shortened life span.”


Feich, in “The Discovery of the Orgone,” in 1974 stated that poor posture-induced tension leads to decreased blood flow. This decrease in tissue oxygenation is a major factor in all disease, including Cancer.


You may not know yet how much better your body will feel once your posture is corrected.
