I'm working on it! Yeah, one of them turned to completely organic living, the other turned mostly organic and went onto win the U.S. National Tai Chi title after realizing that there is such a thing as energy that the body uses, and that muscles and joints are not destined for bearing any loads. Doctors get 20 hours total of nutrition information in medical school, if that, and the rest of the time they learn "everything else". How much do they learn about energy and how dancers can move the way they do without straining their bodies and muscles? Zero. Not even PM&R doctors who dedicate their lives to physical movement and rehabilitation are taught the first thing about energy or chi. One of the top PM&R doctors in the country told me that it's impossible to ride a bicycle long term without damaging your nerves at the elbow.

So yeah, the Body School needs to come out and permeate society, because it's in desperate need of it. Last I checked, arthritis wasn't curable, but I managed that feat just fine, having three different sports medicine doctors confirm the diagnosis in two countries.

well I have tried many things but considering my knees are suppose to be severe, I still walk and dance nearly every day I will never give up, I live in hope that there will be natural ways to fix the problem before I go under the knife again.

What are you doing differently that would enable this different result to take place?

I am making sure I keep muscle strength to take the pressure of the joints. also trying to use the muscles in the right way. my legs have got more bowed and now and to unbow them  Lips sealed Being conscious of the movement to make sure I am doing it properly until I dont have to think about it anymore

Now that is just insane. I have never heard anything so ridicules before. There are countries in Europe where most of the population are on bikes daily. I have never heard or seen any issues with elbows being damaged by biking from any of those countries. That is just a load of nonsenses.

Sounds like you need to be the one that promotes the Body School to the medical world. .....And by the way my family doctor always said the arthritis is indeed curable. He was however himself a dancer and saw the benefits of good dancing.

I will I promise you Cheesy We are dancing interstate on the week-end coming and will be doing two different age groups. The challenge of dancing with younger people pushes to (mentally) to try harder dont know why, but perhaps it is to show them that the oldies can do it Cheesy

we did very well Cheesy our dancing has moved to another point and becoming more consistent overall. I am being very conscious of my core and my space and jobs. Above all we try to entertain the public who come to watch and exude the emotion relating to the dance
