THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE… If you have been told you have degenerative disc disease, you may want to watch this video and check http://
“Quick tip for those suffering or been told that they have Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD). This is a label and a term and it means nothing; there is no such thing as DDD. If you look it up online and it’ll tell you this is not a disease. Everybody has degenerating discs, it’s part of getting older and I heard Dr. Stuart McGill say when you go to a Doctor’s office (Dr. Stuart McGill is one of the leading spine specialist in the world) and he’d say, when you go to the Doctor’s office and they see wrinkles on your face they don’t tell you, “You have degenerative face disease,” right? Because no one would accept that or buy that. But as soon as somebody accepts that they have DDD they believe that they have a disease when the true cause of all degeneration is typically stress, diet, are you getting the minerals? Are you intaking inflammatory foods? etc., etc., like, are you gluten intolerant, but you eat gluten which has an affinity for collagen so it attacks the collagen that wears down the joints faster, etc.
So, main thing is there is no such thing as Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD). Everybody above the age of 50 when they look at a cadaver their disc are degenerated. Now, some are degenerated a little faster, because everybody’s different and some degenerates slower. Now, if you’re someone that the disc degenerates faster, then I would highly recommend:
- Looking at your diet
- Looking at your stress level
- Looking at your exercise/ activity level
How often are you moving? How often are you sitting? If you’re sitting, that is one of the most dangerous things for your back, like if you are sitting all day and you’re in a certain position where you are not activating your abs, you’re putting stress on your lower back, then this can cause your disc to degenerate because it is not getting the oxygen, the blood flow and the nutrients that it needs. And the nutrients is transferred through synovial fluid which is released through compression on the back. So compression is needed to keep your back healthy which means that you need to be lifting or doing things that cause compression on the spine and this is how we get nutrients and blood flow but if you’re sitting all day what happens is you create a lack of blood flow and energy to the certain area. Imagine you sit 8 hours a day, that’s 1/3 of your day, you are sleeping the other 8 hours typically right? So in between that time the time that you’re sitting and sleeping there is not much going on, so activity level is very important. So when you’re in between those two 8 hours of sitting and sleeping, you should be doing some activity right? that’s why we’ve created Back Pain Relief4Life, because it helps people get blood flow, nutrients and oxygen to their back so that they can come back, de-stress the lack of activity, the lack of blood flow, and nutrients to the back. So there’s no such thing as Degenerative Disc Disease; really it comes down to you being your own best doctor with nutrients, stress level, activity level and that’s gonna be the main three things that affect your back. So you make sure you focus on those areas and you should see 90% of all back issues and DDD go away if you’re able to incorporate healthy lifestyle and nutrition, reducing stress and activity level.”
