I’ve been including single leg work into my training to try and strengthen my weaker left leg / glute so it will eventually be as strong as my right!
It has been tricky finding the right movements as I can’t put any pressure through my toes (eg can’t do lunges) so have to find alternatives!
Experimented with these single leg split squats tonight using the straps instead of a box which were fun!! 4 sets of 8 reps each leg (10kg DB)
Any other suggestions / recommendations please fire my way!
People often come to see me and have heard “it’s bone on bone,” doubting they can get better
Even though evidence may not agree with their (or their ortho’s) opinion, it’s not worth arguing over...that’s not profitable. And it’s not about being right...it’s about helping someone potentially avoid unnecessary surgery
Instead of arguing, I gently ask people to suspend their doubt for a few visits and just GIVE IT A CHANCE. Buy in and just maybe they don’t need surgery. MAYBE their surgeon is right and they really do need surgery. But maybe not...isn’t it worth waiting a few weeks to see?
Woke up today with my back completely inflamed in pain (took me sometime to even get up 😩). Instead of taking pills I usually do this natural remedy. 2 cups of almond milk, 1 teaspoon of turmeric ground, 1 teaspoon of ginger ground, a pinch of black pepper, boil it for a bit and take it out of the heat and leave for 10 minutes to steep. Strain the particles on a strainer in a cup and add either agave, maple syrup or @beefreehonee for an added touch of sweetness. There are other things that I can do on my end but even though I follow the vegan lifestyle, there is no cure for osteoarthritis only maintenance. Swipe to the next pic to see what other foods are anti-inflammatory. (They left out pineapples but that is also an anti-inflammatory food) Try them out if you deal with inflammation. .
Never really worked on a strength phase of the bench press always just trained to try make my chest as big as possible, my chest is actually weak as...... struggled up a 120kg near on PB. Probably put too much work load in the build up. Not too bad considering under 2 years ago I couldn’t even lift the bar with an arthritic wrist.

🔼Gout is a disease characterized by recurrent attacks of arthritis; urate deposits in the joints, kidneys, and other tissues; and elevated blood and urine uric acid levels. The joint most commonly affected initially is the metatarsophalangeal joint of the great toe. There are two forms of "primary" gout. In one, uric acid production is increased because of various enzyme abnormalities In the other, there is a selective deficit in renal tubular transport of uric acid. In "secondary" gout, the uric acid levels In the body fluids are elevated as a result of decreased excretion or increased production secondary to some other. disease process. For example, excretion is decreased in patients treated with thiazide diuretics those with renal disease. Production Is increased in leukemia and pneumonia because of increased breakdown of uric acid-rich blood cells. 📍The treatment of gout is aimed at relieving the acute arthritis with drugs such as 🔼colchicine or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory🔽 agents and decreasing the uric acid level in the blood. Colchicine does not affect uric acid metabolism, and it apparently relieves gouty attacks by inhibiting the phagocytosis of uric acid crystals by leukocytes, a process in some way produces the joint symptoms. 🔼Phenylbutazone🔽 and probenecid inhibit uric acid reabsorption in the renal tubules. 🔼Allopurino🔽l, which directly inhibits xanthine oxidase in the purine degradation pathway, is one of the drugs used to decrease uric acid production.

I think sometimes we seldom forget that there are many people who have our backs and are cheering for us through the fight with chronic illnesses. ❤️
Research is still being done. Support is out there. Above all, WE HAVE EACH OTHER!
COMMENT ❤️ if you agree!
☠ Leading cause of death in US: cardiovascular disease.
☣ Taking Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS) have been shown to increase heart attack and stroke rates. Ibuprofen is a perfect example of an NSAID. So much so, the FDA requires warning labels on ibuprofen bottles. According to biomedical scientist, Rhonda Patrick Ph.D., when medicating with ibuprofen, "smooth muscle cells become stiff and you make less nitric oxide, which is important to relax blood vessels." This can be hazardous to health because if you are chronically stiffening your blood vessels, it can create a build-up of plaque that clogs your vessels.
💊 Chronic use of ibuprofen is considered just once a month. The Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology reports, "NSAIDs attack mitochondria, reducing heart cells' ability to produce energy." Think about the toll long-term NSAIDS use takes, not only on the heart, but also the function of the consumer's kidneys. The National Kidney Foundation reports that NSAIDS "reduce the blood flow to the kidney ... [which] can cause chronic kidney disease known as chronic interstitial nephritis."

All the toys, books, DVDs and furniture (almost) we own is pictured here. Reminding myself that it’s just stuff.
All the babies and Bibles and hymnals we own, also pictured. ;) Reminding myself that some things don’t lose value and are worth cherishing. Eventually we will have to leave our bibles and hymnals, but those two little monkeys? Allllllll mine. They get to stay forever (or at least until they become men and start their own homes). I’m slooooooowly getting to the point where I can rejoice in the present hardship. Ish. The humbling of our souls and death to more sin is a good thing, and we are thankful for a good God who allows it.
We took a break from school to indulge in Netflix and I’m only slightly ashamed. 🙈🤷♀️But it’s using an Ethernet cable so less EMFs means it’s ok, right? 😁

@fibro_warriors @rheumatoid_arthritis_awareness @fibromyalgia_awareness2018
Back in 2016 I broke my leg twice and was starting to suffer terrible pain in my whole body and putting on weight.
I was working full time and my free time was spent restless and disturbed sleep, pins & needles, hair loss and depression.
I was using 8 prescription drugs for pain, swelling, sleep, depression and nothing Was changing... these strange severe pain days took over and before I knew it we were in 2017 and in was 3 stone heavier .. CHANGES HAD TO HAPPEN I NEEDED MY LIFE BACK.... I embarked on a lifestyle change with JP products consisting of natural fruits and vegetables and plants... I have been on my products since Oct 2017 and I have lost 2 st 5lb.., I have less swelling daily, sleep better, less flare ups and walk everyday and swim 3 times week.
I also came OFF all of prescribed drugs... so no more health side effects... These 2 capsules have especially helped my journey as they have reduced my moods, help with energy, immunity, inflammation, pain, muscle recovery and repairing my digestive system and bloating..
I will always have #fibromyalgia & #dengerativearthritis of spine and as I get older I'm sure changes will happen but NOW I am a survivor fighting and speaking out LOUD ... I will not stay a victim any longer 🦋💜
"The @unbuckle_me is such a great tool for kids who are still learning how to use their car seat buckle! My daughter gets so much anxiety when she can’t unbuckle on the first try, and this saves her from a lot of worry.
We store ours in the front seat, clipped on the sun visor. This is an especially good idea for younger kids who couldn’t be trusted to not play with it while the vehicle is moving." -@agreenmama
⭐🙆🏼🍽🍉 @makedaisychains : Do some food shopping. Or get someone to help you do it, do it for your, motivate you or do it online. 💚

BI’S get the guys, and Curls get the girls!! 💪💪🔥 If working out for your health doesn’t excite you, then maybe being sexy for your significant other will! I know when I feel I look good I feel sexier for my husband. I feel more confident in my clothes and am just a happier person.
After being in a few car accidents 5 years back I wasn’t able to do much for exercising. I ended up gaining weight and my clothes got bigger, and I was a mess. I didn’t like the weight and how I felt. Every time I feel like missing a workout, I remember how I felt back then and I get to Pushing Play!! If you’re ready to feel amazing again then come join me. They say you never regret a workout!! 😉
Growing some #organic#turmeric . I am not a health doctor or whatever, so do your own research. Turmeric a spicy root used in a lot of indian foods and one of the most strongest #herbs to actually fight #diseases and potentially reverse diseases. A strong and natural #anti -inflammatory #antidepressant that #boost#skin#health may ourperform common #Arthritis drug, could treat or prevent certain cancers, can help the liver to efficiently detoxify the body and many more good properties.
Tip 1: Water every day and don't let the temperature get below 65 degrees Fahrenheit or 18 degrees Celsius. Put it on your bedroom behind the window for example if it's to cold outside.
Tip 2: because of the warmth and the daily happy watering fest, it's easy to get #fungus or #mold on the soil or plant. (Don't worry! I had it to ;-) You can fight it easily without chemicals. Just disolve 2 table spoons of #sodium#bicarbonate in half a gallon of luke warm water. Use a fine sprayer to cover the plant and soil! Spray daily to see the mold or fungus almost disappear like snow in the sun!
Much #Love and #Namaste !

What are Cannabis Topicals? Glad you asked! ✨
Canazen topicals are cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils that are absorbed through the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation. Because they’re non-intoxicating, topicals are often chosen by patients who want the therapeutic benefits of marijuana without the cerebral euphoria associated with other delivery methods.
