    Gravity, Human Movement and Parkinson's Disease

    in Health

    Innate human coordination requires being in sync with the STRAIGHT-down influence of gravity. This enables us to tap the substantial energy generated by the downward movement of our body mass. In infancy, we all learn this highly evolved skill as we teach ourselves to sit, stand and walk with grace and power. Early in childhood, however, through deep cultural conditioning, we forget. From the day we are born, we see everyone around us sitting back in chairs, sofas, car seats, etc. At around 3 or 4, we get sucked into this utterly normal, but mal-adaptive behavior. We begin sitting-back with staggering repetition. In so doing, we interfere with gravity's influence by sending our body mass down on a BACKWARDS trajectory. Our brains automatically react -- with muscular strain and skeletal distortion -- to keep our head/neck functionally vertical. We don't notice these reactions nor feel anything unusual. It all happens subconsciously. This kinesthetic disconnect spills over into how we stand and walk. The consequences are all around us: society-wide epidemics of bad posture, lower back and neck pain, knee and hip replacements. For people with Parkinsons, the consequences are even more severe, restricting free movement considerably. This can be changed -- through re-developing sensitivity to our downward-moving body mass and how it is affecting us moment-by-moment. If you are planning to listen, it will be worth your while to check-out in advance an illustrated essay on this topic at www.uprighting.com/Parkinsons.pdf.

    in Health

    My guest is Bob Stahl, Ph.D. who answers the question "What is mindfulness?" and discusses how mindfulness would help living better with Parkinson's. As explained on his website [www.mindfulnessprograms.com]:

    Answers on Alternative Therapies for Cancer

    in Current Events

    Cancer can be a life altering event and the treatment options may seem to be trusted and set in stone.  Do you feel confident you can lick it and the treatments will bring you what you are needing, a clean health slate to start all over again?  What happens if the treatment outlined by the medical community and your family members is in direct conflict with your gut feeling about your own health?  Who is in control; the physician, the insurance company, your family or spouse, the religion you believe or you? 


    Bill Henderson, author of Cancer-Free:  Your guide to gentle, non-toxic healing will be sharing his vast information and research on Cancer treatments.  Bill has a personal experience with cancer which he will share and he learned so much in the process and thereafter, he helps those who ask for support.
