How to Cure Bowed Legs Naturally
By Amanda On February 12, 2012 · 13 Comments · In Beauty Life, Body
My bowed legs are an all-time eyesore. I can’t wear mini-skirts (not that I want). I can’t wear ankle boots (for they draw attention to my legs). I can’t even wear shorts. I have to forbid myself from wearing this or that kind of clothing for the fear that it may draw unnecessary attention to my legs. Poor me…
If this scenario looks familiar to you, I’ve got a solution! Knowing that it’s never a long-term solution for me to hide or disguise my bowed legs, I did a search online to find out what natural methods can be used to cure them so I can forget about it once and for all. And voila, I’m exhilarated to tell you: I’ve found it! This method is super easy and won’t cost you anything. All it takes is a little of time and patience. Don’t believe? Read on.
8 Steps to Get Rid of Bowed Legs
First, find a strip of space in your home where you can walk straight for eight steps. I do this exercise in my sitting room. The space is not as long as I want, but enough to get the job done.
Next, stand in a natural position. Hands rest on your sides. Keep your legs close to each other.
Finally, imagine there is a straight line on the floor and walk backward along that line for eight steps. And in no time, you are done!
Easy enough, huh? However, bear in mind a few things while you are at it: 1. Make sure you are retreating in a straight line. No curve. 2. Keep your strides big. That way, you can exercise and, according to the video, “waken” your thigh muscles. 3. It’s okay to raise your knee while moving, but remember to touch the floor with your entire sole, not only your toes. Which means you have to bend your instep, or sole if you like to put it other way. 4. Do this exercise at least twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon.
You will get a better idea of how to do this exercise with this video on YouTube.
Remember, you also have to keep some bad habits at bay to avoid a comeback of your bowed legs.
Dont’s for Bowed Legs
First, don’t cross your legs when you are sitting. Yes, crossed legs may make you look more ladylike, but it’s achieved at the cost of the aesthetic of your legs. So even though I know I would look way less charming with a pair of untangled legs, I still commit myself to it.
Second, don’t stand on one leg. It’s another bad habit of mine. When I’m waiting in line or leaning on a post, I like to shift the weight of my body to one leg. Don’t ever do that! It can ruin the natural form of your thigh bone. And the best advice I can give you is: stop doing this.
My Personal Experience
Okay, time for me to tell you the result of my experiment. I have been doing this 8-step exercise for about two weeks, and I can really SEE the difference. Although the result isn’t immediate and is not as magical as the video claims, I’m still quite satisfied with my progress (you have to know that bowed-legs have been with me for as long as I can remember). In the past, when I had to pull my knees together, I had to make some great effort, causing me to become a few centimeters shorter. But now, doing such a thing is simply effortless, and I can keep my height unchanged. So I can vouch for this exercise’s effectiveness. Just don’t expect it to work immediately.
If you are plagued by bowed-legged and can’t find a good way to cure it, I think it’s worthwhile to give this method a go.

The Struggle

...(any group of words) and clauses (groups of words that contain a subject and a verb) are also syntactic elements that require a reader’s attention. Syntax affects the pace of a piece. • Short, clipped phrases, sentences and clauses tend to create a feeling of quickness, decisiveness, and speed to a piece. It is important to be aware of the content of a piece and look for connections to syntax. Pay attention to how pacing relates to the action and purpose of a particular piece. • Long, convoluted sentences, especially with subordinate clauses at the beginning tend to slow the pace of a piece. Often they are connected to a contemplative section, a heavy or serious subject and the writer wants to emphasize it. Sometimes, however, they are placed in a piece for the purpose of demonstrating the ramblings of a character, the ludicrousness of an idea, or the ridiculousness of a situation. Watch for occasional satire or irony in these long sentences. Key Questions: • How does syntax contribute to and enhance the meaning and effect of language? • How does syntax contribute to tone? 1. “Syntax” refers to the ways words and phrases are arranged to form sentences. The reader must identify an author’s syntax and discuss the relationship it has to the content of the passage. Authors may use: a. specific patterns of phrases and sentences b. divisions within a piece with different syntax for each c. parallel structure ...

Born in a town, Taggart had not much country lore - at sparrows, blackbirds, thrushes, his knowledge stopped; but he enjoyed the bobbery the little beggars were kicking up, and though a trifle stiff perhaps, he felt fine'. He lit his pipe, and almost at once his brain began to revolve the daily problem of how to get a job, and why he had lost the one he had. Walking, three months ago, burly, upright, and secure and jolly, into the room of his chief at the officers of Conglomerated Journals Ltd. , he had been greeted with: Morning, Taggart.

...CONTROLLING IDEA: Some of our behavior we’ve done are unexpectedly for us a sometimes we do it over and over again until it become our “mannerism” CHAPTER I THE PROBLEM INTRODUCTION We have many activities that we can do for our relaxation during our leisure time, but there are some type of activity that often do provide amusement to us, including behavior that we find unacceptable; like flicking your hand in front of your eyes, pulling thread out of your clothes, making repetitive sounds, nail biting and many more. This kind of behavior is considered self-stimulation or we can called our mannerisms and can often perceive negatively because “they do not look normal”. It is not difficult to identify mannerism. If someone does a strange thing habitually, like clearing his/her voice superfluously, that is a mannerism. If someone (usually men) finds himself whistling every so often, that is a mannerism. If someone is fond of biting his or her fingernails, that is a mannerism. Nose poking, excessive or unnecessary tooth picking, tooth sucking, and indiscriminate hugging are also mannerisms. The habit of interjecting one's speech or sermon with a typical exclamation repeatedly and overuse of a gesture are some other mannerisms. Just look at the people around you. You are in a classroom together with your classmate. Sometimes you will notice that some of your girl classmates are playing with their hair, twirling a ring around their...

The Death of Ivan Ilych

... Description: Subjects: Tolstoy's novella, written just after the author's conversion to Christianity, is now considered a literary masterpiece. In it, death suddenly confronts Ivan, a well-to-do middle-aged Russian man, in the form of an acute illness. Standing on the edge of death's yawning chasm, Ivan looks back at his life and its comparative vacuity. Before he fell ill, earning enough money for some elegant furniture concerned him, but now eternity and destiny wrack his spirit. Tolstoy's startlingly precise portrayal of human anxiety, desire, epiphany, and love has gripped countless readers from all walks of life, and many of them report that the story not only moved them to tears, but also had a profound impact upon how they view life and its purpose.
