Did you know that the first cervical vertebrae,
the Atlas, is out of alignment in most people?
ONE TREATMENT CAN BE LIFE CHANGING
The Atlas supports your head and governs structural alignment.A misaligned atlas
causes restriction of the brain stem, spinal cord, cranial nerves and arteries.This limits
our potential for wellbeing and creates tension, restricting the free flow of energy.

Ahead of Their Time
WHEN STONE AGE man sprinted for his
dinner or, alternatively, when he ran as fast as
he could to avoid becoming dinner himself,
he was partaking in some fairly vigorous
exercise. And he was doing it without any
training in a gym with weights or aerobic
equipment, let alone a personal trainer. Yet he
was fast and strong.
In fact, without the aid of high tech
exercise equipment and the same genetic
coding we have today, prehistoric mankind
was, according to the best minds in the field
of palaeontology, far fitter and stronger than
we are today. And despite eating more calories
than the average modern human, he was
also unlikely to be afflicted with the chronic
diseases that dog those who follow a typical
Western diet and lifestyle.
Natural selection would have ensured
that the fittest and strongest cavemen thrived
and were the most successful at passing on
their genetic traits. In contrast today, such
factors as financial security, dress sense and
sharing a similar taste in movies may be a
strong motivator towards couples getting
the opportunity to further their lineage --
nothing to do with survival traits.
Although it is a less than exacting science
than say, chemistry, palaeontology has
revealed much about our distant ancestors,
including their health, their diet and the
different types of physical activity they
would have undertaken regularly.
We are meant to move in ways that
ancient humans would have moved because
that is the way we evolved, with our genetic
makeup not having changed much in over
a million years. Instead, our way of life has
shifted incredibly rapidly over the last 10,000
years or so, with the changes that have
occurred in the last hundred years having
done so at mind numbing speed compared to
the snail's pace of the previous million years.
Subsequently, we find ourselves ill equipped
to handle the extreme inactivity associated
with modern living, as we roll from bed to
dining chair to car seat to work seat and then
back to car seat to dining chair to couch and,
finally, back to bed.
And if you were good enough to have
slipped in your 30 minutes of exercise
because an ad on television told you to, then
I still say, "So what! It's not nearly enough!"
By scientific estimates, Palaeolithic man had
an activity level that was at least twice that
currently recommended by the World Health
Organisation as a measure to address the
current obesity crisis. This is obviously well
above an average day of movement for most
And if we are coping poorly with the
changes in movement patterns, we are
finding ourselves equally ill equipped to thrive
upon the food choices that confront us, day
after day and year after year. Those choices
are getting tastier, more refined and less
like what our cave dwelling ancestors were
eating in their apparently well nourished and
thoroughly exercised existence.
Modern living is drastically altering our
ability to express our genetic potential.
This point was made recently in an article
discussing the link between environmental
and genetic forces in the development of
metabolic disorders that appeared in the
weekly science journal Nature, with an
excerpt quoted in an editorial of the American
Journal of Clinical Nutrition. When such
a good point is made and then reiterated
within two such quality scientific publications,
it deserves mentioning again here: "It is
difficult to refute the assertion that if modern
populations returned to a hunter-gatherer
state then obesity and diabetes would not
be the major public health threats that they
In another study, published last year in
Cardiovascular Diabetology, the Paleolithic,
or Stone Age diet, was compared to a
standard evidence-based diet, which had
been designed to treat or prevent diabetes
mellitus. The diabetic diet consisted of a low
GI dietary pattern, with carbohydrates as its
major caloric source, emphasising vegetables
(including root vegetables), wholegrain
breads and cereals, fruits and berries.
On the other hand, the Paleolithic diet
was based upon lean meat, fish, fruit, leafy
and cruciferous vegetables, root vegetables,
eggs and nuts. In this group, more modern
agricultural developments in food such as
dairy, cereal grains, legumes, refined fats,
soft drinks, beer and added sugar or salt
were excluded, while some other foods were
simply restricted, such as no more than two
eggs, one tablespoon of olive or rapeseed oil
and a civilised one glass of wine a day.
The diets were followed for three
months with each group swapping to follow
the alternative for a further three months.
The results found that the Paleolithic diet
provided significant improvements in several
cardiovascular risk parameters, beyond that
provided by the diabetes diet, with better
values achieved in blood lipid, blood sugar
and blood pressure profiles, along with
a reduction in body weight and waist
Advantages from adopting a more
Paleolithic-like approach to your life just keep
on coming. For instance, the greater amount
of potassium provided by such a plant-rich
diet contributes to the body's alkalinity,
which, along with the high level of vigorous
exercise, combines to create stronger bones,
which Stone Age man had despite his lack of
calcium from dairy.
Stepping outside your comfort zone will
typically make you a bit uncomfortable, but
it will often induce an adaptive response
that leads to you positively adapting. How
comfortable has your life become lately?
Good health, Jeremy Hill.
