Are you suffering from any of these signs of stress?
Low Back Pain
Simply living life today is stressful. Painful situations, emotional conflicts, money problems, job pressures, negative self-talk, germs, toxic chemicals, junk foods, dysfunctional relationships, drugs, harsh medications, cigarette smoke, alcohol, crowded expressways, are all destructive stress factors. To make matters worse, our stress levels are higher than they were twenty years ago and still increasing. No end is in sight.
The truth is, when outside stress is greater than inside resistance, things go wrong. What’s now apparent is that all of our health problems and life challenge’s are stress related. The vast majority of adults are over stressed and headed down. Most don’t realize the serious state they are in. they are locked in an inappropriate stress state and don’t even know it. For too many, it’s as if they have one foot on the break and the other is on the gas. Major problems are inevitable. Modern drug oriented medicine does not seem to hold the entire answer. If it did, the W.H.O. wouldn’t have ranked America so low on the list of healthy countries! (37th)
The primary indicators that a person is in a destructive stress state are: experiencing mental duress, a weakened immune system, being more outer reactive than inner actualized, areas of great muscular tension, discernible areas of muscular weakness, and biomechanical imbalance (ex: a tilted head posture, a high shoulder, a rotated hip, a short leg).
The alignment establishes proper biomechanical balance. Weak areas become stronger, excessive tension levels dramatically drop, and greater balance becomes apparent. Everything works better when aligned!
