    This pose helps to strengthen the hips and functional core. The internal rotation of the femur bones are important to turn on the functional core muscles in the body - to help support the spine and the overall structure. It involves the upper inner thighs and transverse abs, helping you to move dynamically. It is also good for knee issues by helping teach the knees proper tracking.[br>[br>Benefits: Strengthens the supporting muscles of the major joints, like shoulders, hips, knees, ankles -- Develops core strength -- Strengthens quads and gluteals -- Helps protect knee joint, by building stability-- Builds heat in the body -- Opens shoulders and chest --[br>Improves breathing.[br>[br>Warnings: Those with knee problems should begin against a wall -- Severe back problems -- Recent ankle surgery.

    I need your help! My sister is 29 yrs old and has recently been diagnosed with lupus about 2 years ago. She just got married and was hoping to start a family. She then found out that she was perimenopause . She has close to no eggs. So she started fertility treatments and has recently been inseminated she found out today she is not pregnant! What can we do? Is there a fertility doctor you recommend that specializes in this problem? She is so young and is desperate.
