How Texting Affects Your Brain

I’m gonna tell you how posture can save your life Hi I’m Dr. Sten Ekberg with Wellness For Life and by subscribing to our channel you will learn everything that you need to know to master true health today I’m going to talk about posture and a lot of kids learn growing up their mom said oh stand up straight and don’t slouch and all that but what does that really have to do with anything we do know that people who feel bad cannot look like this and people to feel good look more like this well it does it reflect on how well the brain is working also so one of the functions of the brain is to control the body so we can see how stress manifests in the body and here is what we would call a normal posture so my arms are hanging straight my shoulders are square and my palms are facing in toward my body in a relaxed normal posture if we look at it from the side then you see that my head zone straight and my ear is approximately straight over the shoulder joint that’s in normal posture when the neck is positioned like that it can signal properly to the brain but what you will see more often than not today is you’ll see people’s shoulders doing this and you see people’s hand almost always facing more or less backwards and this is actually a sign of a weakened frontal lobe because the job of the frontal lobe is to inhibit a stress response and to inhibit internal rotation and flexion so when we have stress when if we were in a fight if we have a bear coming after Earth or if we’re attacked then our body goes into a state of stress and the first thing that your brain is going to do is to protect you so you pull your shoulders up you pull your shoulders forward you bend your arms a little bit and you activate your flexors and your internal rotators so when you see people walking around like this it’s a sign of chronic stress it’s a form of stress their brain is not working as well as it should their frontal lobe is a little bit depressed if you will the properly when the brain works better then it can inhibit these things and we get back into a full posture if you think about an infant an infant is born in a curled up fetal position that’s why it’s called fetal position and it’s because their brain hasn’t developed yet to inhibit this primary flexion and the same thing happens to Grandpa when they start going senile that when the brain gets more and more and more degenerated now you start seeing that the posture goes more like this again if someone has a stroke then we get what’s called in decorticate posture where whatever part of the brain doesn’t work to inhibit that we get an extreme flexion and in and internal rotation so all of these are little clues for you that you can look for look at yourself in the mirror don’t cheat just kind of get in the front of the mirror and relax and see what your hands are doing if one hand is turned in and the other one is not chances are that you have one side of your brain it’s a little better one side is a little stronger than the other one and by working on your posture and by doing simple exercises like you can check out my video on the three winged friends which are postural exercises you can actually do exercises to stimulate the signals that restore the posture that restore the signaling and actually start building up that that frontal lobe again and in doing that it’s not that just that you get better posture but when your brain starts working better when your frontal lobe get some more activation you can also start finding better balance between stress and relaxation most people are in a state of chronic stress they have what’s called sympathetic dominance sympathetic is a stress response but in all cases of health we want balance so by doing postural exercises and by doing relaxation exercises like breathing you help your body find balance and in doing that you improve the immune system you improve digestion you improve sleep and on and on and on that’s what holism is when you improve one thing you improve they have done studies that show that for every inch of anterior head carriage we increase the strain and there’s a direct correlation between anterior head carriage and disease between anterior head carriage and mortality so keep that in mind when you think about what we call refer to as a Twitter neck that today when they examine the next the cervical spine and the curves of children there is virtually no normal spines anymore even kids below five years old have started developing Twitter necks and when we see just look around look around that in the stores in public anywhere you go you will see people looking like this and it is devastating it is not just a nuisance it’s not just that they get socially isolated that they don’t develop any skills except this it is truly devastating to their overall health by subscribing and watching our future channels you more about health and how all of these things interrelate and then you can make a good example you can start working on yourself and then you can start sharing this and sharing with others thanks for watching
