My butt is flat! Why sitting too much causes chronic pain, muscle atrophy and problems moving around.

My butt is flat! Why sitting too much causes chronic pain, muscle atrophy and problems moving around. This post is reposted from last spring and added to, because it’s one of the most searched topics on my site. I figured posting it again and including additional information and resources may be helpful. My butt is flat. I swear on my life, it’s gotten flatter today from sitting in this darn chair and working at my computer.  People think that I’m exaggerating when I talk about this issue, but I’m not. Really, I’m not. My butt seriously gets flatter the...

EDS on a cellular level and why it’s important to “Moving your DNA.”

EDS on a cellular level and why it’s important to “Moving your DNA.” What does Natural Movement Training (NMT) have to do with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), or more specifically collagen and connective tissue?

The Importance of exercise on the expression of our DNA and the role of epigenetics

The Importance of exercise on the expression of our DNA and the role of epigenetics For me, this is an area of science that I find most fascinating.  I also believe that the science behind epigenetics gives us a good clue into why we see such differences between those who have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.  However, there is no way to really prove it, other than just my own personal experience, versus those of others. And what is even more crazy, is when I compare my personal experience it is not to my family, but to others who seem to have...
