Good Health Requires a Healthy Back
Because the body's information highway—your nervous system—is protected by your spine, back health is an important foundation for your overall well-being.
The nervous system travels out between the vertebrae of the spine to carry messages from the brain to every corner of your body and vice versa. Stress and strain on the vertebrae can put pressure on the nerves. That is why a problem with your spine can have far-reaching effects causing symptoms in various parts of your body.

A Guide to Good Posture
Having good posture influences a number of things such as your risk of experiencing lower back pain, your energy levels, and your focus and concentration. If you’re constantly in a slouched position all day long with bad posture, there’s far less oxygen distributed throughout the body, and low levels of oxygen are one of the contributing factors of fatigue. Therefore to help boost energy levels, proper posture is a must.
A good posture will expand the lungs, allowing you to take in more oxygen, which then moves into the muscles as well as the brain cells, enhancing your overall level of energy. Proper posture will also make you more stable on your feet, with the ability to change directions quickly as needed without losing balance.
Luckily, there are many natural ways to strengthen the back and improve posture. Back bolsters and wooden pillows help improve circulation, relieve tension, ease muscle strain, and realign the spine. Lying down for just 10-minutes a day can revitalize the health of your back and help you recover mobility and relieve pain.
