Improve Your Posture With Easy Stretching Exercises

Years ago I injured my shoulder muscles and was not given the proper exercise routine to repair the muscles so they tightened and would easily get reinjured causing me much pain over and over again.

I stumbled upon an exercise routine while watching my local PBS station that has transformed my life.  I suffer from Lyme disease and a raft of other illnesses such as type 2 diabetes, Celiacs disease and thyroid disorder just to name a few. 
I immediately started doing them while I watched the program.  I researched the instructor and found 19 videos she did on You Tube.  Here they are, just click and get started today.
For the last five years my right arm and shoulder could not reach around my back to attach the bra.  My right hand could not sit on my hip.  But, after just 1 week of doing these stretches daily I can now put my hand on my hip.  I am also standing up straighter. 
When I can finally reach my bra to take it off I will be jumping for joy.  They are super easy to do and only take about 30 minutes a day to do.  If you have been suffering from poor posture, back or shoulder pain like I have you'll be amazed at what stretching can do to improve these problems.

Happy Stretching!  Watch Video

Natural Corner
How to make a natural  underarm deodorant.  Mix 5 tablespoons organic coconut oil and 1 tablespoon gluten free baking soda.  Apply with qtip and discard.  No more odor and it is healthy for you.

Recipe Corner
Japanese Sweet Potato is a new variety that I discovered and wanted to share it with you too.

I first wash and boil the sweet potato with the skin on for about 30 minutes.  I then remove the skin and fry in organic olive oil until they get this golden brown crunchy coating.  These potatoes are a light yellow not the orange color of garnet sweet potatoes.  The flavor is not sweet and the texture is not as creamy. 
They taste more like a white potato and are a little dry but not as dry as a white potato. 

Enjoy! the new experience of Japanese Sweet Potato
