Learning the natural female Whole Woman posture, and exercising to make it comfortable to hold while you sit, stand, walk, run, lift and carry, will bring about improvement in your symptoms. For younger women this will happen quickly. Older women will take longer. Women often write into the forum that the posture feels strange at first, but once it becomes a habit, it feels completely natural and anything else feels strange.
