Inflammation – How can we play a part?

Throughout the last twenty five years of teaching clients and children, inflammation has been on the rise. When i was at school you only heard of asthma and eczema, now there is whole other list of complications that both parents and children have to battle with. In my early days of teaching i did not have the tools to assist people with their pain free journey. Exercise is only one part of the jigsaw, lifestyle habits such as sleep, water, diet, stress, and breathing are key.

What are your highest priorities? Is your health hindering you from being able live the way you want? Chronic inflammation is a common denominator when it comes to poor health conditions. We all have choices to make every day and small daily choices (good or bad) lead to long term results (also good or bad). Good health comes from GOOD daily decisions. Drink more water, consume more vegetables, get some daily exercise, a goodnights sleep and meditate for a few minutes each day. Remember, YOU have the power to transform your health … ONE healthy choice at a time!


Chronic inflammatory diseases are thought to be “maladaptations of the immune, nervous, endocrine and reproductive system” It is not always clear exactly how and why these maladaptations occur, it is becoming clear that they quite often. Anything ending in ‘IS’ is inflammation there now follows a list of alot more. The list of chronic inflammatory conditions or those with a significant inflammatory component include:


All autoimmune disorders (such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Sjogren’s syndrome, Type 1 diabetes, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, ankylosing spondylitis and many others. If you are wondering why—remember that the inflammatory response is actually a part of the immune system, so when the inflammatory response becomes chronic, it is not so surprising that the immune system is damaged).

  • Asthma
  • Stomach ulcers
  • Digestive disorders such as Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis and ulcerative colitis
  • Skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis
  • Atherosclerosis and other forms of heart disease including metabolic syndrome (Syndrome X)
  • Obesity
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Chronic allergies – including hay fever
  • Cancer
  • Chronic infections such as HIV and AIDs
  • Muscle disorders such as systemic sclerosis, dermatomyositis and polymyositis


The video below is why i became a CHEK practitioner. The totem pole is the hierarchy of survival. When we skip one part another just compensates. I firmly believe that anyone who works in the medical profession wants to help people get well and find vitality and happiness. However when everyone is so busy and stressed , everyone wants the quick fix and of course its easier to pass the responsibility onto someone else as no one wants to take responsibility for ourself. We all blame each other and everyone else rather than look inwardly at ourself. If you’ve visited numerous consultants and therapists and are still not fixed its time for a wake up call. A CHEK practitioner will not fix you but assist you with the correct coaching and movement patterns to assist yourself and take self responsibility . This way you are not spending all your time chasing your tail.

If you book an appointment to see me, you will wander why i ask for alot of paperwork to be completed and look at other aspects of your life besides your injury or pain area. This shows how thorough that we are and that “We are not guessing but assessing”.
