Ain’t Muscle and Health Synonymous?

Just how much oxygen and nutrition are the deep cells of the body usually deprived of as we’re pumping iron or jumping rope? You may be thinking, that’s precisely one of the reasons to exercise – to get the blood circulating. And it’s true generally we’ve been taught that exercise does increase the circulation of blood and oxygen in the body. Unfortunately the whole truth was not told or at least it was largely ignored. The working muscles do get an increase in circulation of up to 90 percent during exercise (with a relatively tiny increase to the heart muscle itself, a slight drop in the brain, and a drastic reduction of circulation to the upper and lower abdomen). The part in brackets was the part that wasn’t talked about.

The premise was that muscle and health were synonomous; increase circulation to muscle, and health would automatically result. Well as we’re becoming increasingly aware, there’s a lot more to it than that. If the nerves, glands, bones and organs are not provided with the raw materials to detoxify and rebuild at an increased rate during exercise, no amount of muscle or even cardio vascular conditioning of the muscle is going to prevent degenerative disease as we age. (it’s one of the reasons professional athletes demand so much money, isn’t it, because their body pays for it in later years and I’m not just talking injuries.)

That’s the reality, and it doesn’t stop there. Each and every cell in the body requires an alkaline pH to function at it’s peak… more on that in my next blog. In the meantime, check out the doable solution (if you’re ready) and saturate all the tissues in the whole body with the complete spectrum of rejuevenating cellular elements they need on a daily basis.
