For the past few months I’ve been working with Egoscue posture alignment exercises and tools. They were demonstrated to me by my friend, Lynn Foutch, who, while training for the Olympics, got slammed by mineral deficiencies leading to chronic neurological problems that she finally reversed when she took The Total Body ReSet formulas (RnA Drops, ReAline, ReMag, ReStructure and ReMyte). RnA Drops make perfect cells; ReAline takes out the trash that prevents perfect cells from finding a good home; ReMag and ReMyte provide structure and the electrical, plumbing and motor functions of the body.
But the question I’ve been asking myself is: what’s the good of perfect cells if your body is not in alignment?
Last week on my Monday Dr. Carolyn Dean Live! radio show a gentleman on the Total Body ReSet formulas said he had developed sciatica possibly from too intense Pilates workouts. I suggested Egoscue and within a week he Facebooked the following: “What a great first session today with my Egoscue therapist! It’s a fascinating mix of Pilates and Feldenkrais. It’s the perfect thing for me to resolve some chronic sciatica. It’s all about alignment.”
Discussing alignment with a client, she told me about the work of Amy Cuddy a social psychologist whose research shows that holding power positions for two minutes can increase our dominance hormone, testosterone and lower our stress hormone, cortisol. A 5-minute video, Game Changer: Power Poser, demonstrates a tremendous tool everyone can use successfully.
Another resource for posture and power is my friend Teresa Tapp. Teresa invented T-Tapp, which is a series of sequential movements designed to put the body in proper functional alignment. Its focus on comprehensive, compound muscle movement helps establish better alignment as well as increased strength and flexibility of the spine, better neuro-kinetic flow, lymphatic function, and increased metabolic rate.
