Stiff Joints

Stiffness and loss of flexibility generally attributed to old age (that can start showing up as early as one’s 30’s) is largely a result of how we eat in our youth. Diets heavy in meat and salt create a perfect storm of dehydration which causes the muscles and joints to lose elasticity.

Any type of prepared meat (muscle) such as sausage, bacon, cold cuts, cured, smoked, jerky, and pre-marinated, inject tremendous amounts of salt into the body. Salt is used as a preservative, taste enhancer, and to cure meats (curing reduces the moisture in meat). Our body must draw moisture from cells in order to generate urine to flush excess salt out of our system. Also, the meat creates high energy and heat which contribute to the excess-salt-induced dehydrated condition.

By simply eating uncured meats and focusing on reducing salt intake, we can greatly reduce the amount of stiffness we experience in our later years. Eating more vegetables and fruits or eliminating meat altogether will greatly enhance our ability to curb the effects of long term dehydration.

Why Eat Healthy?

Why eat healthy? Why exercise, stay fit, cut out chemicals in the food we eat and pollution in our living environment? It’s so that we can remain active and self-sufficient in our old age. Plenty of people stay active until the day they die. They die of “natural causes”, no wasting away in a nursing home or in a hospital bed, their bodies slowly decomposing until their heart, liver, or lungs stop working. When the time comes, we can just go to sleep and not wake up.

If we take care of ourselves and support our health all our life, we can have this type of end-of-life scenario. If we are constantly eating things and doing things and living around things that destroy our body and mind, we will suffer the debilitating consequences of that life style in our old age.

Too Much Energy

An over-energized body attempts to relieve itself of excess energy through several avenues of elimination which inexorably follow one another if the previous stage is not successful. This pattern begins with physical or mental exertion, and then progresses through sex, substance abuse, illness, disease, and finally death.
