I am really excited to start you on this journey and I hope to add a lot of value to your life as a whole.
Nutrition is remarkable in its ability to have people with completely opposite views saying they have science to support completely opposite views.
Frustrating isn’t it? What are we suppose to believe?
In the world of exercise physiology, there is a prevalent myth that working out for an hour or two a day is all it takes to maintain good health. However, this is far from the truth. Just like how skipping meals can lead to nutrient deficiencies and sickness, only exercising for short periods can harm the body in the long run. As science has shown, being sedentary for the rest of the day can be lethal. This article aims to explore the origins of human movement and how it affects our overall health.
The Beginning of Movement
To understand how movement evolved, anthropologists have extensively studied early human fossils, artifacts, DNA, culture, and language. One of the earliest civilizations to adopt a sedentary lifestyle was a tribe in the Middle East about 10,000 years ago, which marked the beginning of agriculture. This lifestyle shift paved the way for modernization, but it also leads to a decrease in physical activity, leading to atrophy, disability, and disease.
Importance of Hunter-Gatherer Lifestyle
Researchers have analyzed how our ancestors survived in the wild, requiring intense physical activity to hunt for food, gather water, and deal with predatorial stress. To survive in the wild necessitated a considerable amount of energy expenditure. According to science, this lifestyle represents the ideal physical activity regimen for which our body remains adapted. The hunter-gatherer lifestyle could serve as an ideal genetic blueprint for the perfect exercise and nutrition program for modern humans.
Human Data vs. Rat Science
Experts have conflicting opinions because many use rat and animal science to defend their theories, but whatever works for rats does not necessarily work on humans. It is much better to recommend nutrition and exercise patterns for humans, based on human data. After all, humans are much smarter than rats, and they are better at understanding human movement patterns.

Movement and the Brain: Origin of Human Movement: Debunking Exercise Physiology Myths
Modern neuroscience has explored the relationship between movement and the brain. Our brains are not just for thinking and perceiving the world; they also function to produce complex, adaptable movements. The impulse of life goes through movement and contractions of muscles, which enables us to speak, write, use gestures, and even use sign language. Thus, movement is crucial for our overall health, and the more we move, the better our health will be.
At New Life Family Chiropractic Center, we understand the importance of movement for optimal health. That’s why we’re pleased to offer our “Movement and the Brain” program, which explores the connection between movement and brain function.
In addition, while the brain is often viewed as primarily responsible for cognition and perception, it also plays a critical role in generating complex, adaptable movements. These movements rely on the contraction of our muscles and enable us to communicate through verbal and nonverbal means.
Our program emphasizes the significance of segmental spinal movement for our overall wellbeing. By encouraging increased physical activity, we believe individuals can achieve better health and vitality. If you’re interested in learning more about the connection between segmental spinal movement and the brain, we invite you to schedule an appointment at our center.
