Bikini Body blast through Cellulite

Its Summer time! …and nothing puts a damper on that bikini body of yours quite like cellulite…but everyone on this planet has cellulite! Its everyone except for your super toned grandma but who looks at her? Everyone is looking at you! You would think with cellulite literally being served at the dinner table, we should all just chill and accept it as the norm. Good thing we dont, because cellulite is not a healthy sign. Maybe thats why its unattractive. However, no you dont need plastic surgery to look like your best!

You can rid of cellulite naturally. Cellulite is not a fat disease. Its a connective tissue disease. Inflammation is the root problem here. Inflammation is largely due to the kinds of food choices we make and quantities we consume. Its also due to lack of proper full body movement. Sedentary people tend to have much more pronounced cellulite, stage 2 and 3. Athletes and dancers may still have pernicious cellulite on their thighs, tummy and butt. However, good muscle tone helps keep it bound so that you dont see dimpling unless your skin is being pressed on fairly firmly. Also, aerobic exercise, but especially high intensity cardio exercise, keeps our lymph moving and thats our detox system. Healthy lymph circulation flushes out toxins that get created due to inflammation.

Bikini Body with Cellulite Massage

Fascia, another term for connective tissue, can be worked manually as well.  Yes you can plow your plush with a fascia blaster, although you may likely use way too much zealous force and inflict bruising. Best option: get professional cellulite fascia blasting package.  You get great results in just 5 treatments, but it wont happen in a vacuum. I mean you will still need to do your abc’s: tweak your diet, drink plenty of fluids, get on an active work out schedule and stay positive!

eliminate toxic waste through skin

eliminate toxic waste through skin

Your skin is your largest organ of elimination. To eliminate toxic waste through your skin you have to make sure it can breathe and that its not clogged. Toxins can build up in your body quickly when your colon, your other elimination organ, is constipated. BTw constipation is bowel movement that is less frequent than twice a day. 3 times is ideal. By maintaining your skin properly you can help not only your colon eliminate toxins but also your kidneys. Your skin can eliminate up to 10 pounds of toxic gases, liquids and solids!

is my skin healthy?

Ofcourse the best way to keep your skin healthy is to avoid building up hazardous waste by leading a non toxic life style. Eating mostly vegan, raw with plenty of fresh water and fresh squeezed juices. Also, plenty of daily exercise and positive thoughts. However, if you find yourself dealing with toxicity, either candida, fatigue, allergies or etc., there are a few important measures to help your skin’s elimination processes.

ways to keep skin eliminating efficiently

Besides doing all healthy things mentioned, you should also wear clothing made of natural fibers, preferably cotton. Cotton offers great breatheability! Choose clothing that isnt too tight, so as to keep circulation flowing freely. How about wearing nothing whenever possible!

Have an outfit that you can throw on quickly when you go outside to protect from the sun, rather than wear sunblock. Sunblock, other petroleum and synthetic base product clog pores. You can also carry a parasol, a sun umbrella.

Also get a massage,great for circulation. Dry brushing done regularly goes a long way to help stimulate your skin’s innate ability to eliminate toxic waste. Dry brushing included in cellulite massage packages. Dry brush or wet brush, or grass brush daily! Watch these videos to get some ideas 🙂 Wish you happy waste reduction!

13:15 lung cancer
14:50 all fresh squeezed juices for terminal illnesses

cause of foot tingling: dorsal and plantar

tibial nerve enervates and causes numb foot on plantar and lateral side. muscles impinging a nerve in lateral compartment of the leg can cause sensation of foot tingling over the dorsum of the foot

plantar or lateral foot tingling

tibial nerve enervates and causes foot tingling on plantar and lateral side.  this mat be due to nerve impingement by muscles of posterior and lateral parts of lower leg that it enervates. this sensations of tingling and numb foot is felt in the posterolateral side of the leg, lateral side of the foot, and the sole of the foot.

these are enervated by tibial nerve which orginates at popliteal fossa, right behind the knee. its nerve root is sciatic nerve that starts at L4-S5.

The following muscles are enervated by tibial nerve may pinch this nerve, causing foot tingling and numbness.



  • Popliteus – Laterally rotates the femur on the tibia to unlock the knee.
  • Flexor Hallucis Longus – Flexes the big toe and plantar flexes the ankle.
  • Flexor digitorum Longus – Flexes the other digits and plantar flexes the ankle.
  • Tibialis Posterior – Inverts the foot and plantar flexes the ankle.



  • Plantaris – Plantar flexes the ankle.
  • Soleus – Plantar flexes the ankle.
  • Gastrocnemius – Plantar flexes the ankle and flexes the knee.

Tibial nerve  enervate the entire sole of foot by branching out into:

  • Medial calcaneal branches: arise within the tarsal tunnel, and innervate the skin over the heel.
  • Medial Plantar Nerve: Innervates the plantar surface of the medial three and a half digits starting with big toes, and the associated sole area.
  • Lateral Plantar Nerve: Innervates the plantar surface of the lateral one and a half digits, and the associated sole area.


dorsal foot tingling

muscles impinging a nerve in lateral compartment of the leg can cause sensation of foot tingling over the dorsum of the foot, apart from the webbing between the hallux and the second digit. It also supplies the anterior and lateral aspect of the inferior third of the leg.

The superficial fibular nerve originates from L4-S1  and supplies the fibularis longus and the fibularis brevis that span the lateral compartment of the lower leg.

fibularis longus and the fibularis brevis evert the foot (turn it out), and thus act at the subtalar joint. Both muscles also weakly contribute to plantarflexion, although this action is mainly carried out by the gastrocnemius and the soleus muscles.


The superficial fibular nerve(superficial peroneal nerve) feeds these muscles.

Ankle sprain or twisting can cause paraesthesia, pins and needles sensation) in dorsum of foot, due to nerve entrapment. damage to fibular or perforating wound along the course of this nerve can cause foot tingling on dorsal side as well as numbing of lateral anterior lower leg. since enervated muscles are effected, such injury would also effect foot eversion ability.

specialty massage can help resolve impingement!

Fun Exercise Raking Leaves With your Cat

I found a few Secret ingredients to a fun exercise

How to turn Racking into Fun exercise

By getting your kitty to participate 🙂 One morning I was doing some exercises. It went well until I jumped and landed on acorn. Ouch I thought. No more exercising in my yard.

Not ofcourse not! Time to rake! Raking is a tedious but worthwhile task. Ive been experimenting with involving my cat in my exercise routine, so here came the idea: attach a toy I already made to the rake. Having my kitty prance around turned this chore into a fun Fun exercise!

Fun in your hands

Raking is physical but when you are also trying to customize your moves for your the entertainment of your little kitty it becomes a brain exercise! Who doesnt love those?? It turned into a little dance off between my skill at shaking it and his prowess at grasping the other end. I love activities that turn into fun exercise.

I found a few Secret ingredients to a fun exercise.

Fun Recipe

First it has to challenge you physically. Otherwise your body will be like eeh. Lets take a nap instead..
Second, got to challenge your mind. This one ties into the first because you cant seriously challenge, in terms of progress, unless your mind is also engaged. Ofcourse your mind probably has ADD and wont engage fully for long unless its being challenged.

Third, hold on what is it? It was a good tip…

Well, maybe it was the fact that fun exercise means variety. Change it up not only from time to time but also during your routine. Keep your mind and body guessing. If you add even one new element or tweak one you will get a lot of satisfaction simply being proud of your self. Now get out your inner pet and play!

Cat School of Social Adrenaline

Fun is synonymous with adrenaline for most young animals so pick up the pace, ready Go!?

The meaning of Adrenaline

Have you ever wondered how is that animals grow up to be functional adults without attending school?? Well that assumption, that animals dont go to school, stands to be corrected. All animals in fact go to school. That school often times directed by their natural curiosity can be that much more saturated thanks to the involvement of another sentient being.

A good teacher can really accelerate learning and add valuable skills. A human has a lot to offer their pet in that respect. Just remember one simple rule: keep it super fun! Take it from me you will be amazed at discovering the endless possibilities of play. Your pets intellect and talents are a thrill to unravel and how much fun you guys can have together is synonymous with trust and bonding! Fun is synonymous with adrenaline for most young animals so pick up the pace, ready Go!

The school of Fun

Yes its true animal school is all about fun. There is no other way to engage an animals interest. Fun is the strongest positive reinforcement for acquiring new skills. Food is only one kind of ‘fun”, just like it is in human perception. Its a lot more rewarding to come up with new ways to engage your animal excitement of learning…and your own creativity too!

Whats more rewarding? Your cat interacting with you with joy in its face followed by it wanting to be close to you and giving you kisses.. or watching your pet perform a mindless trick over and over again because its salivating for a treat?

An animal full of boundless energy will certainly find ways to keep itself amused but it will also succumb to periods of boredom and loneliness especially once it figures out all the tricks of rolling a ball, surprising a fly and what your shoe tastes like. It needs new toys and activities to keep him charged with adrenaline. In the end, you and your pet experience boredom in similar ways: gravitation to wards food, lethargy, and obesity. physical stimulation such as found in real play acts as the number one maintenance of your and your pets wellbeing : mental and physical!

Your pet really does need your help in exposing him or her to other experience so as to challenge his current realms of perception.

how to School you Pet

A wellrounded play experience typically encourages problem solving due to situations requiring critical thinking. It will also challenge the pet’s physical faculties and another positive byproduct :socializing.

The more of the following the better: getting physical, changing toys and how you use them, change of scenery and spacial relationship of objects, addition of new playground elements and element of surprise! Yes surprise your pet just as much he or she surprises you!! Real fun most definitely involves adrenaline across all species.

Unless your pet is truly antisocial animal, proper socializing actually forms the foundation of a good life for any animal.

These are all skills. Sure, An animal predisposed to stalking and hunting will do just that with or without you. But, It will be an axceptional hunter only with the right kind of experience. he or she is completely aware of your envolvement or lack there of. A cats personability is really in your hands !

Here is one play idea for you and your cat raking leaves

Here is another thing you can do to stimulate brain function

convoluted relationship of leaky gut to hypothyroidism & anorexia

What do anorexia & hypothyroidism share?

What do anorexia & hypothyroidism share?

Why care about hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism means either your thyroid secretes inadequate supply of hormone  T4 or T4 is inadequately converted to T3 by your liver.

The more of the following symptoms you have the more likely you suffer from hypothyroidism:
chronic fatigue,
hair loss,
weight gain,
rough skin,
greying hair
autoimmune disease(multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, sarcoidosis, Sjogren’s,Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis)
high cholesterol

brain fog.

Thyroid hormones effect all your other hormones, including insulin, cortisol, and sex hormones: estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, and T3 and T4 control metabolism in every cell of your body, so you need your thyroid healthy to enjoy quality of life.

T3 lowers cholesterol levels, regrows hair, and signals fat burning to keep your body lean.

the following can significantly throw your T3 levels off balance:
nutritional imbalances,
toxins, allergens,

( due to higher cortisol levels competing with thyroid hormones)

chronic complications, may include thyroid cancer, hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism, which today are three of the most prevalent thyroid-related diseases.

What do anorexia & hypothyroidism share?

Hypocrates wrote “Health begins in the gut” and even our thyroid seems bound by this phenomenon. A leaky gut, one that allows food particles to escape into the body cavity outside of the digestive tract, tends to cause an autoimmune response which often harms thyroid function. Some such diseases linked to a weakened thyroid include Hashimotos and goiter.

The situation gets more complex due to thyroid’s direct influence on those same tight junctions responsible for keeping an impermeable gut. T3 and T4 , thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) all influence the development of the GALT( gut-associated lymphoid tissue). In other words once both the gut and thyroid get out of wack this turns into a vicious cycle 🙁

FYI Psychiatric disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, schizophrenia and Alzheimer more often than not are paired with leaky gut and permeable brain membranes(aka brain fog). Excessive permeability is thought to predispose people to those disorders, rather than be the effect of those disorders.  Successful reversal of gut permeability tends to also result in reversals of those linked disorders!

treatment for hypothyroidism: break the cycle

Since poor thyroid health leads to poor gut health and vice versa, to work this paradox, you have to bring both your gut health and your thyroid hormones to functional levels simultaneously. This probably would require exterior intervention. In other words, temporary supplementation of natural thyroid hormones of porcine or bovine origins to allow your gut to heal before you can expect your thyroid to heal itself.

Acupressure and reflexology done several times a week can also stimulate your thyroid to function optimally. This manual supplementation can hasten thyroid function recovery so as to avoid and minimize side effects of hormone supplements. If your hypothyroid condition is not immediately life threatening and allows time for trial and error you may opt to wait to start on hormone replacement therapy and instead do only these manual treatments.

Hyperthyroidism my also seem challenging to bring into balance. However, acupressure has successfully done so without negative side effects. Try it! Remember: consistency and patience wins the race 😉


dont forget sssssssssssssssssss tre ssssssssssssssssssssssss ~ managment!

supplemnts to consider
iodine( seaweeds)
dietary raw coconut oil(in moderation or topically)
dessicated thyroid (and possibly artificial hormone replacement)
acupressure points
leaky gut diet

Low Inflammation Foods and Arthritis

Low Inflammation Foods and Arthritis

over 40 percent of men and 56 percent of women with knee osteoarthritis did not engage in even one 10-minute period of moderate-to-vigorous activity all week. For those with knee arthritis non weight bearing HIIT ( swimming/cycling etc)is best.

Healing Arthritis with Low Inflammation Foods

Both osteo and rheumatoid arthritis seems to have become a global scourge. Since both types of arthritis have a direct link to inflammation in the body, and food has a lot to do with inflammation, lets discover some anti inflammatory foods.

Osteoarthritis: Broccoli sprouts have some amazing benefits for prevention and management. Namely “sulforaphane — which humans can also get from Brussels sprouts and cabbage — blocked a key destructive enzyme that damages cartilage.”~sulforaphane — which humans can also get from Brussels sprouts and cabbage — blocked a key destructive enzyme that damages cartilage.~Ian Clark, researcher, BBC News.

Rheumatoid Arthritis: Helps eating as much or close to raw as possible. Fresh vegetable juicing also really helps.

For both types, you will not find any low inflamation foods among  processed foods. Also limit all Sugars, even sugary fruit like grapes, mangos.

Do eat high quality animal based foods: grassfed meats, organs, (raw) eggs,

Krill oil For its rich content of anti-inflammatory astaxanthin and omega 3.

Vitamin D ” it is now virtually criminal negligent malpractice to treat a person with RA and not aggressively monitor their vitamin D levels to confirm they’re in a therapeutic range of 50-70 ng/ml.” ~DR Mercola

Fermented Vegetables: help repopulate your gut with beneficial microbes that kill pathogenic ones which destroy immune system and make one prone to autoimmune diseases. Eat 4 to 6 ounces a day of fermented veggies.

Exercise Arthritis Link

Besides low inflammation foods supplements and exercise really work! Yes research now strongly indicates that exercise is good for keeping your joints healthy!
Osteoarthritis:  high intensity interval training,  weight training, stretching, and core work.: when you include all of these regulraly you can reduce joint pain, thereby breaking the cycle of ever decreasing pain induced inactivity.

Special focus on strengthening quads. For those with knee arthritis non weight bearing HIIT ( swimming/cycling etc)is best.

Exercise also helps prevent and manage rheumatoid arthritis.

“Research from Northwestern University School of Medicine found that over 40 percent of men and 56 percent of women with knee osteoarthritis did not engage in even one 10-minute period of moderate-to-vigorous activity all week.”~Mercola

Supplement Anti Arthritis

Epsom Salt Soaks or Creams: sources of magnesium
Some of the following supplements are also low inflammation foods>>

  • Infrared laser: Infraredlaser treatment (also called K-Laser) is a relatively new type of therapy that speeds healing by increasing tissue oxygenation and allowing injured cells to absorb photons of light. This special type of laser has positive affects on muscles, ligaments and even bones, so it can be used to speed the healing of traumatic injuries, as well as chronic problems like arthritis of the knee.
  • Astaxanthin: An antioxidant that affects a wide range of inflammation mediators, but in a gentler, less concentrated manner and without the negative side effects of steroidal and NSAID drugs. Astaxanthin significantly reduces inflammation in many people—in one study, more than 80 percent of arthritis sufferers improved.15
  • Eggshell membrane: The eggshell membrane is the unique protective barrier between the egg white and the mineralized eggshell. The membrane contains elastin, a protein that supports cartilage health, and collagen, a fibrous protein that supports cartilage and connective tissue strength and elasticity. Eggshell membrane also contains transforming growth factor-B, a protein that helps with tissue rejuvenation, in addition to other amino acids and structural components that provide your joints with the building blocks they need to build cartilage.
  • Hyaluronic acid (HA): Hyaluronic acid is a key component of cartilage required for moving nutrients into and waste out of your cells. One of HA’s most important biological functions is the retention of water. Unfortunately, as you age your body produces less and less HA. Oral HA supplementation may improve your joint cushioning in just two to four months.
  • Grounding, or walking barefoot on the earth, may also provide a certain measure of pain relief due to its potent antioxidant effect that combats inflammation.
  • Boswellia: Also known as boswellin or “Indian frankincense,” I’ve found this Indian herb to be particularly useful in treating the pain and inflammation of osteoarthritis. With sustained use, boswellia may improve the blood flow to your joints, which may boost their strength and flexibility.
  • Turmeric/curcumin: A study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that taking turmeric extracts each day for six weeks was just as effective as ibuprofen for relieving knee osteoarthritis pain.16 This is most likely related to the anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin—the pigment that gives turmeric its vibrant yellow color.
  • Animal-based omega-3 fats: Omega-3 fats are excellent for arthritis because they are well known for reducing inflammation. Look for a high-quality, animal-based source such as krill oil.

Rheumatoid Arthritis:

Curcumin (turmeric) in particular has been shown to be effective against both acute and chronic pain. Curcumin is most known for its potent anti-inflammatory properties. It has been shown to influence more than 700 genes, and can inhibit both the excessive activity and the synthesis of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX2) and 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX), as well as other enzymes that have been implicated in inflammation. In experiments on rats, turmeric appeared to block inflammatory pathways associated with rheumatoid arthritis.

A study1 published in April 2012 revealed that a highly bioavailable form of curcumin was more effective in alleviating RA symptoms, including tenderness and swelling of joints, than the NSAID drug Voltaren. Not only that, those who were taking the curcumin only actually experienced the most improvement across the board

Boswellia, also known as boswellin or “Indian frankincense” is another herb I’ve found to be particularly useful against arthritic inflammation and associated pain

Ginger also has anti-inflammatory properties and can offer pain relief. Fresh ginger works well steeped in boiling water as a tea or grated into vegetable juice

Sensual Fuller Lip Secret Kicks Alzheimer’s

Sensual Fuller Lip Secret Kicks Alzheimer's
like lip venom Kicks Alzheimer’s with Fuller Lips

Sensual Full Lips Better than Lip Venom + anti Alzheimer’s Brain function

Although lip venom’s effect on your brain has not been studied, doctors have been able to reestablish lost brain function due to stroke and to reverse Alzheimer’s with simple  exercises for sensual lips! I learned about this tiny intriguing gadget from Dr Pentti Nupponen, a holistic dentist from Pennsylvania, who gave one of the most amazing lectures at Weston A. Price Conference in Dallas( an eye opening experience in general) Bodies are wondrous creatures. Every part connects to another. Lips connect to your brain more directly than say your ears do. They even designed Patakara, which inserts into your mouth in order to provide necessary resistance for your lips. How cool is that! Well after mine disintegrated within a matter of months, probably from dipping in disinfectant H2O2 solution so much, I found another much cheaper alternative. I also use other device-free means of exercising my mouth…

Sensual Lip exercises 101

Forget lip venom. What exactly is lip exercise? Arent we constantly exercising our chops from eating and talking? Depending on your language, your lips sure do get some exercise from talking. In that case women’s brain agility should remain intact longer than men’s 😉 Well, maybe not. Eventhough pursing your lips is a form of mouth exercise and a way to produce linguistic characters, one thing still lacks. Resistance. We all know how much muscles love a good workout against resistance. It offers that extra challenge. Kind of similar to how your brain loves a challenge, Alzheimer’s or not! Apparently sensual lips need resistance also…

Resistance Lip Exercises

Check out my video for full details and demos. Patakara creates that structure for your lips to press against. You then apply a second dimension of resistance by puling gently on the “reigns” away from your mouth. I found out that silicone pacifiers work very well. All you need to add is a string to pull on, if they dont have one.

Another method is to insert your fingers at uniform intervals to simulate a framework for your lips to latch on. I like this method a lot. #1 You dont need a tool #2 You can virtually eliminate creases normally formed from pursing your lips. Simply press your fingers out just enough to smooth those out.

Third way involves having your lips and tongue both actively press against each other, your tongue draws a slow full circle . This one works pretty well, but remember to use hands as I show in the video to keep your skin taut as well to avoid creases and wrinkles.


None of these will feel sensual in execution at first, but soon you will see what Im talking about 😉

Anyway, lets not wait for Alzheimer’s knock. Also, did I already say these exercises REALLY work to sculpt your jaw and plump your lips??  Unlike lip venom…

blood flow to the heart: spider veins

blood flow to the heart

In the same way as a water pump in a fountain, your leg muscles act to bring blood back up towards the heart.

Blood Flow the Heart Variable

As you know blood flow from the heart delivers vital nutrients, such as oxygen, amino acids, glucose, cholesterol etc so that your body sustains itself. Just as crucial is the blood flow to the heart. Your heart requires a steady supply of recycled blood to keep the cycle going. An autonomic process it nevertheless needs your help.  Become acquainted with variables effecting your life such  as heredity, diet, exercise and prolonged standing and modify wisely.

Can Exercise Cause Varicose Veins?

There is a number of exercises that helps maintain good blood flow to the heart and thereby minimizes chances of developing varicose. However, some exercise can have an exacerbating effect on varicose veins.

The good exercises include cardio that works your calves: walking, sprinting, jumping, stationary bike/elliptical. In the same way as a water pump in a fountain, your leg muscles act to bring blood back up towards the heart. These exercises help keep healthy muscle tone in your legs.

The not so great, not to be done excessively include weight lifting and chore contraction exercises like crunches, sit ups, lunges and many yoga postures. Its not that you shouldnt do these but do them in short bursts intmittently or in combination with cardio exercises invoving calves.

Another great exercise is shaking by lying on your back and shaking vigorously both your legs and arms. Make sure to keep limbs relaxed throughout so that you feel a strong quick wave from the shoulder and hip all the way down. This exercise helps break up areas of blood compaction, also helps relax muscles and thereby help blood flow to the heart.

Do this shaking exercise after prolonged standing, sitting of more than 30 minutes, and several times a day otherwise.

Diet helps blood flow to the heart

Natural forms of Vitamin K help prevent and treat varicose veins and keep blood flow to the heart healthy.
First kind, K1, you get from eating green leafy vegetables like lettuce, broccoli, and spinach.

K2 (includes several menaquinones) another great predominantly animal sourced form comes from eating meats and fermented foods like cheese and natto(a soy food, not tofu which is not a fermented product).

Its best to avoid taking the synthetic form Vitamin K3.

Simple strawberry wall garden design with Good Body Mechanics

Simple Garden design: strawberry wall

As a learning gardener I m always excited about a simple practical garden design. I saw this strawberry wall in my community garden I told my self I can totally find purpose my own retired wooden pallets 🙂 two made by me;) and not holding up bunches of terracotta pots anymore. When I got a plot at the garden, I decidedly gave up on my hydroponics idea for a while, leaving those poor things to twiddle their thumbs in the rain. My plot is fairly good size, but its always nice to expand yield and the easiest way may to go vertical!

Happy gardening with Good body mechanics

The basic premise of good body mechanics is awareness. No Im not talking tai chi or quantum physics! You want to simply tune in often to your how your body feels while youre having fun gardening. Most gardeners run into trouble paying attention only to what they want to get done .  Many gardeners may think of this a labor of love. While there is some heavy lifting and digging involved great body mechanics will make it a lot more effortless and enjoyable!


Body Mechanics basics for a Happy Garden

Once you have your garden design well formulated in your head, its time!

First, you absolutely need to clear all clutter in your work area. Anything you may stumble on, or have to lean and hunch awkwardly over has no reason to sit there and be a pain…. An often overlooked step will set the foundation for proper body mechanics 😉

When moving stuff, remember to turn the whole body at the hips an dthat means turning your feet underneath too. Your entire body needs to face square in whatever direction you are lifting from and then placing pots, dirt bags, and lighter things like raks and shovers. Any twist on your torso can spell trouble for your spine. Ay not good … When lifting heavy things, bend way down ino your knees and ankles and let your weight travel towards your toes, rather than back towards your heels. That means allow your knees to travel forward, over your toes. its ok just try it.

As you do so, keep your tail bone flexing up. Imagine youre a happy dog wagging holding your tail up high or a stallion prancing around.

Change position as needed, so that nothing feels awkward. That means stepping slightly over or changing hands so that you become a lefty for a while. You can, dont worry. Lazy just wont do it when it comes to maintaining good body mechanics. Its well worth it, sonce you wont tire as easily and your garden design will be complete in no time 😉
