“I feel healthier today then I felt before I was diagnosed. I no longer have that false feeling of helplessness.“
“Just completed the Anticancer Lifestyle program. Strongly encourage survivors, those looking to prevent cancer, those with risk factors, and really all of us to take this course. Most of us are unaware of how many risks exist, particularly from environmental factors. My favorite was the environment section. People get some nutrition, stress management, and exercise guidance but virtually no information about toxins and their impact.”
I really loved this course…it has changed my life and makes me feel like I have some control over a non-controllable situation! THANKS SO MUCH!!”
Flexibility is an important component of physical fitness. Flexibility refers to the ability to move a joint through its full range of motion (ROM) with ease. Flexibility is joint specific. This means that good flexibility in one joint is not necessarily related to that of other joints. A person could, for example, have excellent ROM in her shoulders but have limited flexibility in her hips. Athletes such as gymnasts and hurdlers clearly must have exceptional ROM to excel in their competitive events, but for all individuals, good flexibility makes everyday movements easier. Although having good flexibility often is touted as being protective against injury, the scientific evidence is lacking. Good ROM in hips and low back along with strong abdominal muscles may help prevent or alleviate low back pain, but this point is controversial.
