Top 6 Yoga Poses To Help Eliminate Back Pain

by Good News Network Fifteen years ago, I was not acting my age. Since I would recoil from any form of exercise, as well as any green foods, I was overweight, inflexible … and debilitated by back pain. The 40 extra pounds on my frame — plus tight, shortened back muscles and weak abs — left me moving like an 80-year-old version of myself. I started reading up and realized a shocking number of people who suffer from back pain, partly from hours of sitting in a way that flattens the low back curve. (BTW, a Balance Ball Chair System, the very one I’m sitting on as I write this, is a great tool to help build core strength and re-align your spine.) Then, I found yoga. Over time,...

Proper Nutrition Reduces Risk Of Cancer

Poor nutrition offers a favorable environment for cancer to grow and develop.

Carpal-Tunnel-Syndrome

Ways to Prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Alter your work space (monitor/chair/desk height) to reduce the number and speed of movements. Insert 'micro-breaks' into a busy task.

One reason that it is so common is because many daily activities require fast, repetitive use of the fingers, hands, and arms, and the friction of the rapidly moving muscle tendons inside the tunnel results in swelling and compression of the nerve. So, can CTS really be prevented? There...
