Violation of correct movement principles involves running, walking, sitting, bending, and wearing unsuitable contemporary footwear such as high-heeled shoes, which cause an imbalance in the muscles that later progresses to deformation. This is a harsh reminder for you to pay attention to appropriate body movement to avoid the negative forces affecting the musculoskeletal system, which accelerates deformation. Before the principles of movement, body defects, and their treatments, Marian Jodlowski introduces us to life energy and health in Fix Your Back Like an Architect, where he discusses the two types of energy, their sources, and how they strengthen the body to overcome obstacles and handle complex tasks. This is important since most of the disorders of the motor organs are related to low energy in the muscles and some internal organs. The author discusses the importance of sleep in helping one regain lost energy during the day. Lastly, Jodlowski educates us on spine conditions, such as scoliosis, discopathies, and lumbago, their causes, and their treatments.

Marian Jodlowski, having been a victim of musculoskeletal dysfunction, writes Fix Your Back Like an Architect from his own experiences and through research. The information discussed is authentic and the product of empirical and extensive research and thereby is reliable. In addition, the author has included a bibliography at the end of the book, which contains references for readers to conduct further reading. Marian’s choice of words is also commendable, as he does not restrict himself to medical jargon that would otherwise be challenging. I also loved the inclusion of colorful illustrations, which complemented his narration and helped my understanding of the topics. I recommend this book to readers with back problems since it will enable them to understand the problems, their causes, and offers suggestions for treatment.

Medicine has come a long way, improving healthcare treatment in many aspects. One area where it continues to fall behind is the issue of pain. Particularly back pain. Although medical professionals will run the tests, poke around, and give a listening ear to a patient’s back complaints, treatment is often restricted to painkillers, physiotherapy, acupuncture, and sometimes surgery. Not always do any of these approaches solve or heal the problem. Marian Jodlowki’s book, Fix Your Back Like an Architect: Gravity Therapy of the Spine and Motor Organs, is an in-depth, inspirational, encouraging, and educational look at the author’s battle with the very painful acute spinal disc disease. Part memoir, the author shares her story of acute back pain and her determination to find a means to recover her core energy and rebuild her inner strength – in short, to eliminate her debilitating back pain. As she points out repeatedly, acute pain is like an alarm system, telling a person that something’s not right with the body and something needs to be done to fix the underlying issue of the pain, not to dull it with painkillers.

Marian Jodlowki’s Fix Your Back Like an Architect is well documented, researched, and presented with care so that the technicalities of what’s being discussed are not too complex. The author leads the reader through her journey of discovery and healing, learning and understanding the importance of “the three cycles responsible for self-healing at every stage of life.” These are the biochemical cycle, the biogravity cycle, and the diurnal cycle, all with core components in the overall well-being of the human body. The author presents her research in an organized fashion, documenting her research thoroughly and including concise references at the end as well as a useful list of terms. This is a thorough look at the healing process, following the author’s personal journey to wellness. Fascinating!

Many of us today suffer from back problems for a variety of reasons. Perhaps some have tried to relieve the pain, but the results have been unsatisfactory. If you want to know how to improve your physical condition, I suggest you read Fix Your Back Like an Architect by Marian Jodlowski. In this enlightening book, the author shares with her readers the information she found after suffering from back problems herself. In addition to debunking beliefs that many of us consider true but actually do more harm than good, Jodlowski will offer insights into the biochemical cycle, nutrition, the influence of gravity, body defects, and much more.

Fix Your Back Like an Architect is a book that I found very interesting and well-researched. Marian Jodlowski has researched the subject extensively and offers her readers useful information to help them improve (if not fix) their back problems. I liked that she analyzed so many aspects. Among those that struck me the most, I mention the advice regarding the best footwear and the considerations regarding swimming (which is not as effective as commonly believed). In particular, the fact that Jodlowski reveals how many beliefs are wrong will help readers to make better choices. I do not think this book has any negative aspects, and I am sure many people will benefit from Marian Jodlowski's advice. I recommend Fix Your Back Like an Architect to anyone who already suffers from back problems or wishes to prevent them; all of them will find valuable suggestions in this book.
