What does my posture have to do with my holiday?
As we go into the holidays, visiting with family and friends, our days are usually centered on food and lots of it! We all have eaten more than we normally do. Here is one of the best tips on helping digest all the food we are going to eat.
The spine has 2 functions it protects the spinal cord and it keeps us upright, this our posture. Your posture! Yes, your posture! Posture plays a big role in digestion, along with all the other body functions. The brain controls everything in the body. It does this by sending energy down the spine through nerves to all the organs and cells of the body. Posture distortions put pressure on your spine and nerves, causing our bodies to become weak, deteriorate and cause disease. Postural distortions are things like forward head posture, shoulders rounding forward, one shoulder or hip being higher than the other.
So during the holidays, look in the mirror and watch your posture-and schedule an appointment to have your spine checked by a corrective care chiropractor. Happy holidays and great health!
