Why is Structural Nutrition Important For Connective Tissue Health?

What is Structural Nutrition?

Structural nutrition focuses on supporting our connective tissues - bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and skin- from recovering and giving the body what it needs.

A massage and bodywork therapist is already your go-to for tissue pain. Now, you can trust us to help bring the tools you need to recover.

What does a Structural Nutrition Practitioner do?

We take a comprehensive look at the body structure—joints, bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and fascia tissue—from the bodywork perspective of a massage therapist. Then we help you identify what is causing the connective tissues to continuously hurt.

This way, we see what could be missing and educate you on how we can help you.

What else could I do to improve my connective tissue health to be?

Optimizing your body can make your massage session worth your time and money. There is so much you can do between sessions, and we coach you on what to do to achieve that in a simple way.

Are you wondering why your joints are are not well?

Many factors could prevent a person from getting well, from genetics, past injury, infection, and environmental factors.

For most of us, genetics is the biggest culprit. And you might be thinking, "If my genes are involved, there's no hope for me." That's not true! We believe our genetics are written in stone and we cannot change them, but that is not entirely true.

Genetics plays a significant role in our health and wellness. While there's still much to understand, it's a promising field. The best part is that there's a lot we can do to influence gene expression.

Ask us how you can understand your genetics to manage your connective tissue health.

Does what happens outside the cells affect our genetics?

Yes. Are you still wondering how? Imagine a daily onslaught of chemicals and physical or emotional stress, such as:

  • Worried about your joint and body pain?
  • Stress about your health and how long you can continue like this?
  • Anxious about the frequent bloating and gas?
  • Worried about your stomach swelling?
  • Are you worried about why you feel tired after a good night's sleep?
  • Fatigued?
  • Suffering from Mold or Lyme disease?
  • Are you worried about where to start, causing anxiety?

A drop of chemicals or a little stress here and there is no problem. The body knows how to clear them. Long-term chemical exposure and physical or emotional stressors, poor diet, and infection can slow down the body's detox pathway.

When the body cannot effectively remove them, they slowly build up. As the saying goes, "A drop of water fills a mighty ocean." If we live long enough, they eventually fill up and start overflowing.

If the flow were symptoms, you would feel them, and it could be immediate, like when you eat rotten fish or meat or it could be slow brewing. It may take a few days or decades before the spill, but once it starts, inflammation begins.

Yeah! Symptoms sometimes take years to appear, or they could show up right away, as in an injury. These could affect our genetic expression for disease.

Where else are connective tissue present?

  • Brain
  • Gut
  • Blood
  • Eyes
  • Bones
  • Muscles
  • Heart
  • Kidney

Joint swelling causes pain right away, but the effect of brain and gut welling is not immediate. By the time you feel joint pain not related to injury, inflammation could already exist in the body.

What else could be causing my joint or bone pain?

By now, you can guess that other than our genes, the body can be influenced by other factors, such as:

  • Heavy metals, aka tooth filling
  • Mold and biotoxins
  • Fungi
  • Lyme
  • Hidden infection

These toxins and heavy metals are stored in tissue cells, interfering with nutrient absorption and transportation.

  • Low energy after a good night's sleep
  • Weak immune system function, such as slow wound healing
  • "No matter how much I sleep, I just don’t feel rested. It’s like I’m constantly running on empty."
  • "My eyes are frequently dry and irritated. Sometimes it feels like there's sand in them."
  • Sleep issues, such as difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • "I often have heartburn or trouble swallowing food. It feels like things get stuck in my throat."
  • Chronic joint pain not related to an injury
  • Tight muscles and joint pain that is not healing after therapy
  • "When it gets cold or I’m stressed, my fingers and toes go all white or blue, and they feel numb until they warm up again".
  • Fatigue or sleepy after a delicious, nourishing meal
  • "My joints hurt and swell up, especially my knees and fingers. It feels stiff and sore like I've been working out too hard, even though I haven’t."

Regular cleansing or detox can release toxins and heavy metals, causing you to feel great at first. If not done right, it can cause another organ to scream foul, especially the liver that is being cleaned. Yeah, exercise is great, but it could add to your pain, causing the body cells to create more toxins than they can remove.
