What is the link between the spine and obesity

This post is also available in: Română

The spine controls our metabolism

According to statistics 70% of the world’s population is overweight. To many people it would seem surprising that there is a link between obesity and the spine.

Based on many years of obesity study, American researchers have concluded that there is a close link between obesity and poor spine condition.

The direct causes of obesity are: hormonal disorders, inadequate processing of fats and carbohydrates, which often originate in damage to the lumbar marrow. Therefore no slimming regime can stop the long term of abnormal weight loss or gain. Low-calorie diets, limiting the number of meals, various slimming cures, do not remove the causes of abnormal weight.

Weakening regimesover long periods of time can become dangerous to the circulatory system. Our body builds about 10,000 meters of blood vessels to serve a kilogram of fat tissue. If the weight fluctuates frequently, due to regimes, constant pressure is exerted on the circulatory system, the result being serious damage to the vessels and veins (especially the legs).

Bad habits that lead to obesity

Try to change your stupid habits, largely responsible for obesity and remove them from your life. You will be pleasantly surprised by the results.

The habit of eating especially refined and cooked food leads to deficiencies in vitamins and natural microelements, which have no nutritional value.

Incorrect combination of foods leads to difficult digestion, because each food needs a certain type for digestive enzymes.

The habit of eating while watching televisiontakes away our privacy from meals. At the table you must be “mute and deaf” say dietitians.

Eating in twitteris another bad habit that makes us forget moderation. The liver is the first to react under stress, and the bile ducts narrow, the bile does not reach the small intestine, and the food remains undigested.

Eating before bed or at night. During the night all processes in the body are directed towards cell reconstruction and rejuvenation of the body. Eating at night only gives us fat, stones to the liver and kidneys.

Sleeping after a meal activates mechanisms that normally work during sleep and removes attention from digestion. Undigested food is turned into fat. After eating you can do the following exercise: go on your heels to increase your blood supply in your stomach and improve your digestion.

The habit of eating something frequently or chewing continuously,leads to the weakening of digestive enzymes, leading to incomplete digestion.

Eating sweet foods baked in the oven leads to starch blocking of the absorbing walls of the digestive tract and contributes to the production of excess mucus. Sweets lead to weight gain. Dried fruits, seeds (sunflower or pumpkin)and nuts in a smaller amount are recommended.

Drinking fluids during meals leads to dysfunction of the digestive and hormonal system. Drink water half an hour before a meal or one hour after a meal. Water drunk during the meal fattens.

The habit of eating fast without chewing the food well. Chew each bite fifty times, so the stomach will have a lighter load and digestion will be improved.

Sedentary lifestyle, does not use much energy, and the body does not have the opportunity to use fat deposits. It is good to exercise during the day to increase the energy consumed.

How do we lose weight?

When the cause of obesity is removed, weight gain will cease. To get rid of the excess weight accumulated it is necessary to go through several steps:

Correcting the alignment of the lumbar vertebrae. There are many methods, including:

Exercise bar method (spalier). Grab the bar with both hands, spread the legs ten centimeters away, then slowly stretch the spine.

Massage with a roll. Wrap the roll in a soft towel and place it on the floor. Stretch so that the lumbar area is on the roll and move your body back and forth (20-40 seconds in each direction). This method is painful but effective. At first you will feel pain in the lumbar area but after three, four days, the pain will start to decrease.

Very important, before any exercise make simple heating movements.

Manual therapy. Lately there are many professionals, who perform procedures of alignment of the column. It is very important to choose a specialist with good recommendations, because a wrong procedure can cause trauma for the rest of your life.

Yoga exercisesare extremely beneficial, which do not subject the body to too much physical exertion.

Gradual and systematic increase in physical activity. Obesity can be treated as a disease caused by imbalance in the energy flow. In terms of physics, when energy intake is higher than consumption (excess eating combined with sedentaryism), adipose tissue is formed to store excess energy.

The safest and most effective method of weight loss is to eat less and exercise more.

Supporting internal cleaning programs. Short and regular postures are an excellent method to rejuvenate metabolism. No wonder religion dictates fasting as a moral act. It helps us get rid of fat and at the same time purifies our mind and soul.

There are two types of post: the least in which we remove proteins and fats of animal origin (drink juices and only fruit and vegetables are eaten) and strict fasting,by which we refrain from food and drink (including mineral water in adequate quantities), which is most beneficial for improving health.

During fasting the body feeds on its own toxins – they can not be considered good and quality food. The blood absorbs toxic compounds from the large intestine and transports it throughout the body. Fatigue and headaches are the result of self-intoxication. We can help the body to eliminate toxins more quickly through an enema (important for those suffering from migraines).

Fasting can be short (1, 3, 5, 7 days), or long (9, 11, 14, 17, 21 or 40 days). Abstinence from food for more than 40 days turns fasting into starvation, with all the negative consequences arising from it.

Victor Hugo said that “people can’t acquire something they don’t understand.” To apply this rule to obesity -“we cannot lose weight without understanding what obesity means”. Therefore, each of us must find an individual way to maintain our body health, a method based on the unique physiology of our body, not on formulas sold en masse. Follow the rule: “Eat to live, not live to eat”.
