  • Study: Fetuses Can't Feel Pain Before 24 Weeks

    Dr. Donald G Wood
    23 Mar 2015 | 5:54 am
    A new British study shows that human fetuses cannot feel pain before the age of 24 weeks (6 months) because the neural pathways needed for pain perception are not yet formed. As well, fetuses at this age are apparently in a state of sleep-like unconsciousness or sedation. The study, performed by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, was commissioned by lawmakers who wanted to lower the abortion age to between 20-22 weeks. “There was fairly good evidence that the pathways necessary to feel pain really just aren’t there before 24 weeks — although they very clearly are…

  • What is Perfect Posture and How Do I Get It?

    Sukie
    14 Mar 2015 | 8:45 am
    The word “posture” gets thrown around a lot.  We talk about it in reference to how we sit, how we stand and even how we present ourselves in social situations. But what does “good posture” even mean?  Usually when we talk about posture, we’re referring to a static “pose,” but you’re not a stationary being.  You have to be able to bend, move, twist and function in the world. Before you can start to fix your bad posture, you’ve got to know what good posture looks like.  And I’ve got a hint for you…it’s about much more…

    Hopefully by now you’ve fixed your office posture so you’re not falling victim to the hunched shoulder epidemic sweeping our nation’s offices. But just in case your shoulders are still tight and restricted, today we’ll take a closer look at what might be causing those rock-hard muscles in your back, neck and shoulders.  Surprise, surprise, the spot that usually feels the tightest is probably not the cause of the tension (are you noticing a theme here?). Besides just making you feel stiff, achy and old, and embarrassing you in yoga class, tight shoulders can affect…
  • Why Your Hamstrings Are Still Tight Even Though You Stretch Them All The Time

    Do you feel like no matter how much stretching you do, your hamstring flexibility never increases? Tight hamstrings continue to be one of the most common complaints that I hear about, and there’s a reason why focusing solely on hamstrings will quickly reach a point of diminishing returns. Nothing in the body functions in isolation.  To lengthen the back line of your legs, other systems (i.e. muscles and fascia) have to accommodate movement of the hip joint, pelvis and spine. That’s what we’ll look at in today’s Weekly Reboot, plus I’ll show you two exercises you…
  • Why Your Office Posture Matters (and the one posture mistake you should never make!)

    Let’s face it, office posture matters.  From slumped shoulders and aching backs to diminished confidence and creativity, poor posture can have a profoundly negative effect on your physical health, happiness and productivity. But aside from trading in your desk job for life as a yoga instructor where you can stretch eight hours every day, what can you do? Fortunately, posture is a result of how we do what we do, not so much what we do and with a few small tweaks to your daily habits, you too can be standing taller and reaping the rewards of better office posture in less time than it…

    The usual reaction people do when they experience joint pains is to either see a doctor for treatment, or head to the medicine cabinet for self-medication. Many painkillers may give temporary relief; but sometimes, medicines do not work at all. It could even be more harmful to be dependent on drugs. While there are those who depend on medications for their ailment, there are also an increasing number of individuals who prefer to stay away from them and turn to alternative solutions to alleviate their conditions.
