Why Incorrect Sitting Posture Can Cause Lifelong health Problems

May 1, 2008
A majority of our time is spent sitting down. Imagine - we sit while eating breakfast, while going to work, while working at the office, and while we wind down after work. We literally sit our way through our daily lives.

Naturally, there will be big problems that will come with that. Sitting down takes the weight off our feet, but it stresses our abdominal and back muscles because of the lack of support our bodies are getting from our feet. If you have bad sitting posture, it can cause serious health problems aside from the backaches and stiff necks that we normally get.

How?

Basically, sitting in the wrong position (leaning too far forward or back) causes our abdominal and back muscles to get tense and inactive. Now take note: these muscles are exactly the ones that are supposed to keep our body in balance. Weak muscles in these areas may open the door to several lifelong health concerns.

When these muscles don't do the job as well as they're supposed to, other muscles in the body are forced to take over. These muscles include the ones that control our breathing - especially the diaphragm muscles - which results in less efficient breathing. This, in turn, leaves our bodies starved for oxygen.

Worse, poor sitting posture also causes the neck muscles to stiffen up - and with them, connected muscles (such as the jaw and throat muscles) also get stiff. This leads to tension and blockages in the veins that bring oxygen-rich blood to the brain.

If you've been reading my blog for a long time, you'll know what lack of oxygen can lead to.

Fibromyalgia, which up to now does not have a known cause or cure for, is basically caused by lack of oxygen flowing in the muscles.

Headaches and migraines are caused by the lack of oxygen reaching the tissues and muscles around the head.

When the neck is tensed, the brain becomes starved for oxygen, and often supports your head in a slightly askew way. This, I've discovered, is why we suffer from vertigo and dizziness - it basically comes from the compromised balance system between our eyes and ears.

Hypertension, TMJ, snoring, sleep apnea, obesity...and so on. Often, one of these sicknesses leads to many of the others, propagating a cruel cycle.

And all because of poor sitting posture!

Proper posture can prevent all these illnesses and more. Many of my programs offer suggestions on alleviating these diseases through simple exercises that put the body back in balance, canceling out the negative effects of the countless times you sat the wrong way all these years.

If you think you are one of those who are suffering from these illnesses, do yourself a favor and avail of one of my programs. You'll learn more about sitting the correct way, and you will learn simple exercises that will cure you of the pain and discomfort these illnesses may be causing, for good.

Warm regards,
