In this 3-part series, Jeffery Ericksen, MD, board certified in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, emphasizes the importance of posture, patterns of movement, and diet to maintain optimal health. He explains how a few lifestyle changes, such as more walking or running barefoot, sitting on the floor and consuming a “hunter-gatherer diet” — limited mostly to fish, meat, vegetables, fruit, roots and nuts — can help prevent inflammation and the development of joint pain and other chronic disease.
