Spine Motion Exercise #3

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 9:34 AM

Spine Motion Exercise #3

An Excerpt from my book Bragg Back Fitness Program Keys To Pain-Free Youthful Back.

In this third Spine Motion, the entire spinal column is flexed from top to base. Every nerve center is stimulated. The pelvic region is specifically helped. This motion also strengthens those muscles attached to the spine that are most helpful in retaining the vertebrae in this improved and elongated position,
that stimulates the growth of the intervertebral cartilage.

Take a new starting position for this motion. Sit down on the floor; then, raise the pelvis up by placing hands at sides (palms down) and drawing in feet about 12 inches. You are now resting your weight on the flats of your hands and feet, with pelvis and back up off the floor.

Raising the body, let the spine be horizontal as you finish the upward movement (see Figure 3, Position 3). Now, go down to the starting position, but lowering yourself to just above the floor. Go up once more, then down, etc. Two of the many remarkable benefits are the strengthening of the muscles and the spine.

You Are What You Think and More

You Are What You Think and More

An excerpt from Bragg Book Build Powerful Nerve Force A Cure For Those Dull, Dragged-Out, Hopeless, Helpless Feelings.

 You will become immersed in patterns of decay if your mind is focused on negative thoughts and matters that are synonymous with disintegration. It’s easy to observe the way this process works in the lives of others. It’s much more difficult to see it in ourselves. Turn your mind away from negative thoughts, but not in distaste and revulsion. Rather, turn eagerly toward that which is new, fresh and desirable – remembering the wisdom gleaned from past lessons. Look ahead to the many years you will have to enjoy what and who you are, because of the experiences you are living through today. Waste no energy on recriminations or self-pity, instead move forward
toward the bright future with new energy!

Bragg Supports Organic Soup Kitchen

Bragg Live Food Products (BLFP) and Bragg Health Institute recently supported the annual Organic Soup Kitchen (OSK) Thanksgiving Dinner, which fed nearly 1,000 people in the Santa Barbara community and drew hundreds of volunteers. OSK relies upon collaborative relationships in the Santa Barbara community with businesses, farmers, and other supporters and food suppliers like BLFP to accomplish its goals.

The OSK has been providing what Director, Anthony Caroccio refers to as meals that are ‘nutritionally dense’ for more than four years. He is committed to serving organic, healthy food to help prevent nutritional deficiencies in homeless individuals. By using fresh, organic produce to prepare nutritious meals that are low-glycemic and anti-inflammatory. For those in disadvantaged communities, this type of food is vital in providing essential vitamins and minerals that boost the immune system and promote healing.  

In addition to hosting larger holiday dinners, OSK provides four meals weekly, and feeds ~800 to 1000 persons per month at numerous locations around Santa Barbara.

OSK will host another large holiday dinner on Christmas Day, December 25th from 12pm to 4pm at the Veteran’s Memorial Building at 112 Cabrillo Blvd in Santa Barbara.

Spine Motion Exercise #2

Spine Motion Exercise #2

An Excerpt from my book Bragg Back Fitness Program Keys To Pain-free Youthful Back

This second Spine Motion is designed to stimulate the nerves leading to the liver and kidneys. It can bring relief from many of the nervous conditions that manifested in subnormal functioning of these vital organs. A sluggish liver and nonelastic kidneys, prematurely aged, for which there is no real excuse, will respond with surprising swiftness to spinal torque or twist. This exercise helps bring these organs quickly to a healthier state of vigorous function.

This motion starts in the same arched position as #1 (Figure 1, Position 1): face down, weight resting on hands and toes, back highly arched, with elbows and knees stiff.

Now, swing the pelvis slowly from one side to the other, to the very limit of your ability in each move to the right, then to the left, back and forth (Figure 2, Position 2). This motion should be done slowly. Always think of the
s-t-r-e-t-c-h we must give the spinal column.

 At first, you will find this motion tiring. It will grow steadily easier to do, not so much because of muscular development as because of vastly improved nerve organization. It should never become perfectly easy. This is more than a simple swaying of your body; you must make every one of the long row of vertebrae pull away from those
adjoining them.

Spine Motion Exercise #1

Spine Motion Exercise #1

An excerpt from my book Bragg Back Fitness Program Keys To Pain-free Youthful Back.

This first Spine Motion applies specifically to nerves that affect head and eye muscles. A reflex of the same motion affects a set of nerves that go to the stomach and bowels. Thus, in one movement, we attack eye strain, headache,
indigestion and poor assimilation.

Lie face down on the floor. Now, rise to an arched position in which you rest on hands and toes with the back highly arched. The pelvis will be higher than the head. Feet are spread about 15 inches apart.
Knees and elbows must be kept stiff.

Now, drop the pelvis almost to the floor. Remember: keep elbows and knees stiff (this is essential to impart the proper spinal stretch). As you lower the back, gently bring your head back; raise it as you lower the body. This is not a fast motion; take time in its execution. Dip to the extreme low, rise high again, arching the back all you can; down again . . . up, and down. If you do this motion correctly, you will find that a few times are enough. If only you could see what is going on along the spinal column during this jackknife action, you would know the relaxation and great relief imparted to the nerves all along the line.
