25 Minute Piloga Session

 

Suppose that at a distance you see a short, stooped figure walking with short, slow steps. Most likely, you will conclude that the person is old due to the hunched posture. Why does ageing contort so many bodies in this way? The reason is that many people, throughout their lives, never extend the neck to its full range, and so the muscles shorten. Long hours of reading, typing, or standing at a workbench take their toll. Eventually deposits of calcium salts in the joints complete the process of immobilization. Once this calcification takes place, nothing can be done to reverse it.

That is the bad news. The good news is that we can take action before it is too late. The best action is regular exercise that stretches the muscles and improves flexibility, with special considerations on the core muscles. This kind of response is relatively important for a number of factors that when taken for granted will only lead to serious health problems.

Let’s Talk About Snoring

It’s estimated that around 40 per cent of the population snores and regardless of the health issues (of which there are many), snoring can play havoc with your relationship.

Sleep

We all know that sleep is vital to our heath and wellbeing, but 2 in 5 Australians aren’t getting enough.  Not so long ago, most people believed sleep was a passive activity during which the body and brain were dormant. However, studies have proven that sleep is a period during which the brain is engaged in a number of activities which are closely linked to “quality of life”.

Australia’s sleep epidemic

As the statistics clearly show, most of us are walking around half awake every day, which means in all probability we are not living a higher quality of life we could be and other areas of our lives can suffer. Both psychical and psychological problems can arise by not achieving enough quality sleep.

7x Signs of an unhealthy gut

Recent studies show the importance of the gut microbiome in our lives. But as our stress levels increase and we eat more processed and sugary foods, the gut suffers in many ways. On top of that, we damage the natural environment in the gut by taking antibiotics.

Fatigue: A symptom to be weary of

Excessive fatigue is a common health complaint especially among women. Aside from their families and the general pace of modern life, there are still other activities that a woman needs to attend to which may make them feel really tired. But today, doctors say, women are exhausted.

Peptides and their benefits

It may seem odd, but some of us use peptides without even realizing it. Insulin is probably the best example we can give. Insulin is the most commonly know peptide that is used to regulate the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and protein by promoting the absorption of glucose from the blood into liver, fat and skeletal muscle cells.

Lose weight and gain a decade

We hear it all the time…lose weight for your health. Few us however, realize the extent to which this is critical to their physical well-being and ultimately their life expectancy.

What is dry fasting?

“Dry fasting” is a diet fad being promoted online by lifestyle influencers. The idea behind dry fasting is to forgo drinking any water. Instead, you get water only from food sources, such as fruits and vegetables. But it is a dieting approach that is dangerously misguided.
