Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury affects up to 250,000 individuals in the US every year, resulting in an annual health care cost exceeding $2 billion

70% of ACL injuries occur in non-contact situations

Why does this happen?
When we are children, our joints are supple + our mobility is flawless

We can sit, squat, stand, crawl, jump, and even take minor tumbles w/o major pain or injuries

As we learn to navigate the world and our growing bodies, motion lubricates our joints and keeps them safe
Unfortunately, when we get older, we stop exploring as many options

And we get really good at one: sitting

As a result, our knees lose the constant flow that nourishes the joint capsule and maintains its suppleness
We also stop spending as much time exploring the knee's full range of motion (ROM)

Almost very single joint in the body is meant to rotate

We do not live in a 2D reality, so this makes sense

Lack of motion in the knee results in the loss of ROM
To maintain suppleness in the knee capsule, move it daily through:

- extension
- flexion
- external rotation
- internal rotation

Once full ROM is established, you can begin to load it incrementally over time, aka progressive overload, to train joint strength + resiliency
Working with a mobility coach can help you safely restore your joints back to optimum health!

It's always best to have another set of eyes on you to ensure injury doesn't occur

If that is a barrier to entry, then filming your movements is the next best option
Hope that helps!

Motion is Lotion

So get Moving 🌊🌊

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the Liver is revered as the regulator of the movement of Qi within the body, circulating the flow of energy that sustains life

If there is stagnation of the Liver, there is stagnation of Qi, resulting in disease + dis-ease
Think about what happens to a stagnant pond: it breeds algae, mosquitoes, disease

Whereas a fresh, flowing river breeds LIFE

The Liver is in charge of 100s of functions in the body, including cleansing the blood, storing essential Vitamins ADEK B12 + altering toxic substances
The combination of our toxic environments + the over-prescription of Big Pharm drugs inevitably results in a toxic overload

A burden the Liver, nor the human body, is meant to bear

Coupled with the added stress of a virus meant to update the human virome and upgrade humanity

I brush my teeth with virgin organic coconut oil dipped in diatomaceous earth or raw kefir/yogurt

Toothpaste and mouthwash are a scam
They’re meant to completely eradicate ALL bacterial in your oral biome

No wonder we see a surge of little kids with dental cavities

Guaranteed it affects mouth breathing too, there’s just no research on it yet
DE contains some trace minerals but is mostly comprised of calcium and silica, which can help remineralize your teeth

Just don't use in excess as it can be abrasive on the dentin

And make sure you get *food grade* DE if you try it out

29 Apr you guys really just *slonk* raw eggs?

I love my raw eggnog, but I just can't get past gulping down eggs like a seagull

Feels so uncouth and unladylike
Guys, there is a better way than *slonking* lmao

Just make eggnog or add raw cream and ice to make a milkshake, it's delish 😌
Men are wild

This is one of the unspoken evils of the medical community

They manipulate people who are already suffering and seek help to embody a medical ‘diagnoses’ and identify as this pseudo-label

Making them slaves to their pain for profit

It’s vile and pure evil
We all have a story

When I was 21, I was ‘diagnosed’ with sciatica and prescribed 5-6 pain management + nerve numbing pills for LIFE

Thank god I listened to my intuition and walked away
That was my tipping point, the catalyst that drove me to figure out how to self heal and restore my body + posture to baseline

It was also when I finally started understanding my body’s language and how she communicates with me via pain
