Post-Nasal Drip

A number of clients have asked what can be done about post nasal drip, a condition where excessive mucus gathers in the oropharyngeal region and drips down the back of the throat - this often manifests as a tickle or bothersome presence in the back of the throat that stimulates a chronic cough or a desire to constantly clear one's throat.

If you're male and over the age of 20, the best time to get serious about taking care of your prostate gland is now.

Tips for Constipation

Where there isn't a physical obstruction of the intestines or regular intake of medication that can affect autonomic nervous system tone, I find that the vast majority of people who struggle with constipation benefit from light bouncing.

While a brisk walk can be helpful in this regard, I've found that there is more benefit from purposeful and bouncing up and down whereby the contents of the abdominal and pelvic cavities are gently jostled in place.

Doing jumping jacks, skipping rope, and even controlled bouncing on a trampoline are all effective. Read more
