Chek points out in the article “The Inner Unit: A New Frontier In Abdominal Training” that research has shown that the inner unit exists under a different neurological control than the outer unit. Fitness training focuses on the outer unit to the exclusion of the inner unit.
This fixation on the si pack creates an improper firing sequence for the core, which promotes ineffective breathing patterns, poor posture, postural distortions, and joint instability.
When we miswire the inner unit through poor practices, exerting any type of effort can predispose the spine to force that it cannot stabilize and/or absorb. This often results in sacroiliac joint and spinal injury. When we allow the wiring to fire naturally, we seldom experience injury, even under intense stress.

They are grain-based and babies under the age of one cannot digest grains efficiently due to their lack of the enzyme amylase, which breaks down starches. The main ingredients are different types of flours and rice; flour and rice are high glycemic, meaning they will convert to sugar (and lots of it) soon after consumption. The type of carbohydrates found in baby cereals have been associated with the increased development of type II diabetes, insulin resistance, and heart disease in adults. Early consumption of these highly processed, high-glycemic carbohydrates found in baby cereals may prime a little one’s palate to lead to the dependence on processed, high-carb foods such as breads, pastas, cookies, and pastries throughout childhood and adulthood. One question I am asked repeatedly is, When should I introduce gluten into my baby’s diet? My answer is, never, especially if that child is a gene carrier. Preventing a disease by avoiding the grains that cause celiac disease is just good and easy advice. Treating food as medicine, or potential poison, is not a new concept, but it is certainly one that has been neglected in our world until most recently.
