I listened to the Mehmet Oz show today and Dr D mentioned briefly that asymmetry is a result of developmental instability.

I have always had a right arm and leg stronger than the left side, and when I visited Dr D in his clinic in Dec 06 he showed my symmetry rating 91% (although I dont really know what this means).   Maybe a contributing factor in my case was that my mother suffered allergy terribly and had a number of other problems.

Can, or should, anything be done about correcting it?     Does anyone have experince on the subject?

I heard asymmetry is bad news on the dating and mating scene, so thats kind of unfortunate.

Good health!

The GTD book goes into asymmetry more.  It helps determine your Genotype.

I donít think correcting the physical differences at this point would make a difference.  Your genetics were determined at the time that your body formed.  The best thing is to be aware of what those differences mean to your health.

Are you right handed by chance? From what I have learned in exercise classes over the years it is normal for your dominate side to be stronger. You can help to balance it out by starting an exercise(like biceps curls, lunges ect.) on your weaker side first.

The asymmetries talked about in the book are not something we could correct. Fingerprints, finger lengths, facial features, uneven breasts ect.

Maldo, welcome!

That Oz interview was great. Of the interviews I have heard Dr D participate in, that one was a true gem.

How uneven does one have to be to be 'uneven?'
Nobody is perfectly symmetrical. One breast is slightly larger (or smaller). One eye is slightly crooked. My nostrils are not the same.
But I don't feel I'm unsymmetrical....

well at some point you have to decide if you have enough to call it asymmetrical.
