Syndrome Slump®

If you’ve been searching Google to figure out why you ache, why you keep getting injured, or why your body doesn’t look or feel as good as it used to, Syndrome Slump® is likely your answer.

Syndrome Slump® a societal epidemic I have identified, which is more widespread than obesity. Despite your best efforts to stay healthy, chances are high that you have Syndrome Slump®. You simply might not yet have recognized that Syndrome Slump® is the explanation.


Syndrome Slump® is the sloppy use of joints and muscles from your feet upward. It affects how old you look, how you feel, how you breathe–and how you perform in the activities most important to your quality of life. It’s been fighting your efforts to stay strong.


Even if you avoid rounded shoulders or a hunched back, there are 14 other Syndrome Slump® features affecting many areas of your body which are so commonly vulnerable and sore.


You probably don’t have all 15 features, but most of you exhibit several in everything you do. For some of you, Syndrome Slump® even includes using your facial muscles poorly in ways that affect your breathing, chewing, and appearance.

Syndrome Slump™ is not your fault

It’s not your fault that you’ve learned to do most of your activities with unnatural joint and muscle use. We’re all so accustomed to seeing friends, family, and even celebrities and models exhibiting Syndrome Slump® that we hardly notice. We unwittingly mirror these injurious, age-accelerating habits from our feet upward. Plus, almost no one teaches how to use your body per its actual design. It’s difficult to avoid catching Syndrome Slump®.
