Posture is Effected by These Things:

Immune System

The first line of defense against disease-causing microorganisms is the skin and mucosal barriers. Behind this is a complex defensive system. Collectively these parts are known as the immune system.
The immune system neutralizes or destroys microorganisms and the toxins created by them wherever they attack the body via the extensive lymphatic system (comprised of the spleen, thymus gland, tonsils, bone marrow, and other organs and tissues). The network of lymph vessels (capillaries and lymphatics) drains the clear body fluid known as lymph from the tissues into the bloodstream. Special white blood cells that originate in bone marrow, known as lymphocytes, along with antibodies (proteins that neutralize foreign objects), are primarily responsible for carrying out the work of the immune system.
The first line of immune defense is called the mucosal barrier. Mucous membranes are an integral part of the immune system. They form a protective barrier between the interior of the body and the outside environment.
The mucosal barrier is permeable and allows nutrients into the body while protecting it from infectious agents, allergens, and other harmful substances. If testing reveals that mucosal immunity is impaired, therapies should be initiated to rebuild it.
In addition to evaluating mucosal immunity, it is relevant to assess cell-mediated immunity and humoral immunity. Cell-mediated immunity works by the activation of specialized cells called macrophages and natural killer cells, which destroy intracellular pathogens (disease-causing microorganisms). Humoral immunity is the aspect of immunity that involves antibodies. Knowing the status of these immune components provides a comprehensive understanding of one’s ability to fight infectious agents, defend against toxic exposures such as chemicals and heavy metals, and kill aberrant cancer cells.

Hormone/Endocrine System

Hormones are chemical messengers that travel through your bloodstream and enter tissues, where they turn on switches to the genetic machinery that regulates everything from reproduction to emotions to your sense of well-being. The body’s system of hormone production is formally known as the Endocrine System.
Hormones can be thought of as the chemical force that animates you physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Balanced levels are necessary for the optimal function of numerous physiological processes.
In today’s world, there are many environmental chemicals that act as endocrine disruptors that have a significant impact on your body’s ability to utilize hormones both correctly and efficiently. In addition, there are many food and water additives that also impact Endocrine/Hormonal health. Being aware of and avoiding these toxins and stressors when possible will be a proactive step to improving your overall health.

Diet & Nutrition

Diet and Nutrition
Regardless of the diet you follow, the primary goal should always be the same: maintaining good blood sugar (glucose) control. You can achieve and maintain optimal health only when you are on a diet that promotes hormone balance; that balance depends on a steady blood sugar level. Eating the proper combination of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates regularly and in moderate amounts helps to sustain that balance.
Clinically speaking, blood sugar control occurs when insulin and glucagon, two hormones produced by the pancreas, are in balance. Carbohydrate consumption and the resulting rise in blood sugar induce the stimulation of insulin, the hormone responsible for lowering blood sugar and storing excess blood sugar as fat.
Protein consumption induces the stimulation of glucagon, the hormone that promotes the mobilization and utilization of fat for energy and, in the process, raises blood sugar.
Insulin and glucagon are antagonists, meaning that the secretion of one acts to balance or modulate the effects of the other. Above-average levels of insulin caused by a diet high in sugar, processed foods, and unhealthy fats are associated with almost every disease known to mankind, especially cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
Signs of low blood sugar consist of headaches, brain fog, shakiness, fatigue, worry, carbohydrate cravings, and lethargy.
Signs of high blood sugar consist of anxiety, racing mind, nervous energy, headache, difficulty thinking and concentrating, and cravings for protein or fat.
If your blood sugar is low, you will mobilize cortisol to break down muscle, organ, and bone tissue-not fat-to ensure that a constant supply of blood sugar is delivered to your brain and the rest of your body. In effect, your body digests itself to continue operating. If your blood sugar is sustained at high levels, metabolism becomes chaotic and blood vessels may become damaged, which in turn creates a cascade of undesirable events.
Stable blood sugar levels, on the other hand, form a strong foundation for hormone balance and homeostasis.

Acute Inflammation is the body’s natural response to injury or infection. It’s normally short in duration and it recedes as the body heals. The purpose of acute inflammation is to aid the body in healing.
When the body is injured, inflammation helps to improve the blood flow to the area generally resulting in redness, warmth, and/or swelling. The cells and nerves then send out signaling molecules called inflammatory cytokines to the immune system to attract white blood cells and aid in the healing process. As the healing progresses, anti-inflammatory cytokines are produced to turn off the inflammation process once the body has healed. Overall, acute inflammation helps by increasing the blood flow and immune response which then heals damaged cells, removes infection, and protects the body during the healing process.
Chronic Inflammation is consistent, low grade, or systematic. Scientists believe that is caused by faulty signaling to the immune system resulting in an unorganized white blood cell response. Since there’s not an injury to be healed, the white blood cells become confused and begin to attack healthy organs and tissue.
Over time, chronic inflammation can cause significant damage to the body and can be an underlying cause of disease or significantly impact existing diseases such as:
* Cancer
* Heart disease
* Diabetes
* Obesity
* Auto-Immune Disorders
– Rheumatoid arthritis
– Inflammatory Bowel diseases (ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s)
– Lupus
• Allergies (2)

Gastrointestinal System

Gastrointestinal system
The saying “You are what you eat” can be said more accurately; “You are what you digest”! However, if digestive function is compromised, it’s not just your body’s nutrient status that suffers. The health of the gut greatly impacts brain function, hormone balance, immune regulation, and so much more…
The Gastrointestinal System, which handles your digestive function, also contains a vast mucosal barrier. Gut inflammation and a compromised mucosal barrier can be caused by bacterial and parasitic infections, food additives, environmental toxins, mental & emotional stress, and a host of other stressors. This can severely limit digestion, lead to inflammation in other areas of the body, and have a huge negative impact on the Immune System and Hormonal/Endocrine System.
In order for your body’s cells, tissues, and organs to get both proper nutrition and eliminate toxins, your digestive organs need to be supported in a way that eliminates any stress that compromises this amazing system.

Detoxification System

A toxin is any substance that causes harm in the body. Never before in human history have we been exposed to as many toxins as we are now.
If your body’s ability to process these toxins detoxification- is compromised, the dominoes will fall on your core functional systems and your health will suffer, with the quiet stirrings of chronic illness taking hold.
Fortunately, there are everyday things you can do to cleanse the body of toxins, strengthen the detoxification system, and prevent toxic overload.
The body has an amazing capacity to process and dispose of toxins. However, like any waste disposal system, it has limitations; chronic illness is the consequence when the body’s capacity to process toxins is hindered. Impaired detoxification impacts us on a cellular level. Toxic build up will slow you down, zap your zest for life, and limit basic metabolic functions.

What is ZYTO Scan?

A ZYTO scanner is a device used to perform a bio-investigation of the human body in a process known as bio-communication. In short, a ZYTO scanner asks your body questions and records the responses in the form of impulses it receives. (Source: ZYTO)

Why do we use the ZYTO Scan?

We are a huge advocate of not spending money on supplements or products that are just filled with “fillers.”

We use the scan here at Posture Restorations to RESTORE you on the path of healing through real food, movement and stretch recommendations with your doctors approval based on YOUR posture and your repetitive daily activity.

As a massage therapist, we use the meridians from the ZYTO Scan to better understand how to manipulate certain muscles that hinder movement or collect waste, which quickly develops unhealthy restricted blood flow causing pain or illness.

Come see us to get a ZYTO on your posture health!

How does ZYTO Scan work?
Getting a ZYTO biocommunication scan is a simple and painless process. Simply place your hand on the ZYTO Hand Cradle while a scan is run. During the scan, subtle energetic impulses are introduced to your body. Your body will naturally respond to this communication, and the ZYTO software records each response. Although a few people may be able to sense this energetic communication, most are unaware that the scan is taking place. The length of the scan can be as little as 3 minutes. (Source: ZYTO)
