Beyond Balance  "While we’ve all got some whole-body mal-alignment going on, it’s the failure to use the feet over our lifetime that fundamentally messes with our stability.  My point of writing all of this down is, the biological, or fight-for-survival part of the brain feels the constant falling we are doing (even though the more conscious parts of our brain don’t recognize it) with every step.  Imagine the stress falling off of a 100 story building would generate in the adrenals, which shortens the psoai, which dumps a whole lot of stress-chemicals into the blood.  Now imagine you were only falling a fraction of that distance, but with every step.  This small, almost minute sensation (and physiological reaction) accumulates over time, leading to tissue degeneration of your “catching-yourself” parts (i.e. knee cartilage, spinal disk tissues).  The reaction to falling (even a tiny reaction) leads to an over-use of the adrenaline system, a risk factor for diseases of decompensation like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, memory loss, cardiovascular disease, insomnia, depression, and declines in nervous tissue health."—Katy Bowman  (Thanks to Conditioning Research!)
