Have we gone too far in the direction of medicines and drugs – is this the right approach to take as much medication as we do.
Our body is very clever and it reacts to situations. If we twist a joint and cause a slight injury or tear our bodies response is to send “repairing nutrients” in the form of white blood cells to the area in fluid to immobilise and start the recovery journey. When we take medication we stop this process – we cause away the “goodies” and artificially slow the process down. Would it be better to keep the “goodies” in the injury and removes the discomfort by poulticing the area. Our skin is not made of plastic it is porous and so by poulticing we can remove fluid and toxins through the skin and help to speed recovery up.

“In every exercise if you don’t start from a good postural position you won’t achieve optimum strength, you may use the wrong muscles and eventually something in your body will give” …
The Sunday Times on 1st Nov 2015 endorses the necessity to have correct posture before getting in to an exercise regime and in order to correct injury and rehab in a better more productive way.
It is everywhere – the recent Horse and Hound has an article saying the same thing reinforcing many of my comments on the Biospheric Performance Equestrian page about our posture and how it effects our horses back and posture too.
In brief if you can’t read this article it says there is little point in training without looking at posture and doing a proper postural assessment because you firstly won’t achieve the results you desire and second eventually you will hurt yourself.
