Poor posture at the root of many medical problems!

February 18, 2009


An expert writing on a health-related web site says that poor posture (known clinically as Postural Distortion Syndrome) is at the heart of most health problems in the world’s developed nations. “Most of us are operating from positions so far out of ideal that our systems are quite literally breaking down under the strain,” she says. The expert says arthritis, digestive problems, headaches, obesity, and even toothaches can often be attributed directly to bad posture.


  • What is the major contributor to ill-health in all developed nations on the planet?
  • You see, the human body is meant to function from a position of balance and equilibrium with a place for everything, and everything in its place.
  • When in optimal alignment, the musculo-skeletal system acts to prevent damage to the more vulnerable internal systems of the body allowing for optimal and stress-free function.
  • The trouble is, most us are operating from positions so far out of ideal that our systems are quite literally breaking down under the strain.
  • The problem is that most of us will go through life without ever realizing that many of our aches and pains are effects of poor alignment rather than the causes of illness themselves.
  • In trying to alleviate our symptoms we’ll take medications, massage, acupuncture and chiropractic treatments to achieve temporary respite, yet the problems return.
  • You see, no medication or treatment can stop the cycle of pain and breakdown caused by PDS.
  • As long as the cause of your problems exists you’ll ALWAYS have the symptoms.
  • So, let’s get to the root of the problem!
  • Why do we suffer from poor posture?
  • The lives we lead quite literally shape the bodies we wear.
  • Provide our bodies with enough activity, water and nutrients and they’re capable of withstanding almost anything we put them through.
  • On the other hand, put the wrong fuel in them and fail to move them often enough and they’ll seize up.
  • Much like a car, or any machine for that matter!
  • Every system in our body requires movement to aid circulation, energy production and keep our muscles and bones strong enough to fight the effects of gravity.
