Fitness is Not Health

Exercise is BAD for You

Exercise Makes You Fat and the More You Exercise, the Fatter You will Become.

It’s the start of a new year and many of you are thinking of embarking upon an exercise regime to try and lose weight, well don’t, because exercise makes you fat and the more you exercise, the fatter you will become.  Not now but 2-5 years after you have stopped and you will stop because slogging away for hours every week, month on month, year on year is not sustainable and furthermore, it is not natural.  The more that you exercise, the more you will have to exercise just to stay at the same weight.  Most “keep-fit” people have to keep on keeping fit just to stay still and confusingly to them, there are always certain areas which do not improve plus they develop joint problems.  Problems which are actually caused by overworked, seized and contracting muscles pulling upon and misaligning the bones which meet at their joints.  This is why ultimately, you will stop and then all that damage which you have just created needs repair and our body protects our damaged muscles by draping them in a soft, protective, cushioning layer of “fat” or rather “body cell debris”.

So if you are overweight to begin with then your muscles are already damaged because the bulges are not fat but “body cell debris” that is accumulating, for your own protection, as a padding to cushion the sites of your damaged muscles.

Our Fat is Caused by Seized Muscles

Body Cell Debris Protects Our Seized Muscles

Exercise initially, appears to work.  The “enforced” pumping of the heart and artificial moving of the muscles increases the blood flow enough to push away some of the “body cell debris”.  But exercise, the pulling on already, seized and misaligned muscles only creates more internal damage.  Consequently, when the exercise regime ends, the bulges will re-grow and in the same places, only next time, they will be larger

Long after your gym instructor or keep-fit expert has declared victory, taken the glory and left your life then the damage will show.

Frequently, “ex-fit” people say, “I only have all this extra weight because I stopped exercising”.

But I say, “No, you have all this extra weight because you started exercising”.

“Muscle turns to fat” is claimed as an excuse by many of the once fit, muscle bound men who are now the fattest middle-aged ones. 

No it doesn’t.  Muscle does not turn to fat, anymore than bone turns to liver or brain turns to kidney.

Seized muscles become “draped” with fat or rather, draped with “body cell debris”.  You are not fat, you are damaged and exercise only creates more damage which means more fat, more “body cell debris”.  You will become fatter.

Cardio-Vascular System is a Misnomer

The expression the “cardio-vascular system” is a household name in all the countries that are serviced by western medicine.  It is used universally to describe our blood flow system.  Yet it is a nonsensical mismatch of terms which totally ignores the existence of our muscles.

*****************************************************

Born in the year 1578, an English physician named William Harvey

discovered the “mechanism of blood circulation”.

Blood is pumped into the body by the heart, along the tubes of the arteries but

the blood is pumped back to heart by the muscles, along the tubes of the veins.

 *****************************************************

The pump of the heart, the “cardio” is one half of the blood circulatory system.

The pump of the muscles, the “muscular system” or “venous pump” is the other half.

The blood travels out along the tubes of the arteries, the “arterial system”.

The blood travels back through the tubes of the veins, the “vascular system”.

 

Therefore the sensible and more accurately descriptive name for our blood flow system should be one of the following;

(i)           The heart-muscular system (pump with pump) or

(ii)          The cardio- muscular system (pump with pump) or

(iii)         The cardio-venous system (pump with pump) or

(iv)         The arterial-vascular system (tubes with tubes).

But not, the “cardio-vascular system” (outward pump with returning tubes).

“Health and Fitness” is an Oxymoron

Fit people drop dead every day, don’t they, especially during or just after exercise?

Healthy people do not drop dead.

————————————————-

Fit people have muscle pain and joint problems, don’t they, especially during or just after exercise?

Healthy people do not have any pain nor joint problems.

————————————————-

Fit people have to exercise every few days just to feel normal, don’t they, or they stiffen up and ache with debilitating feelings of lethargy?

Healthy people feel good all day, every day without any effort.

————————————————-

Fit people have bulging muscles, don’t they, especially those who exercise a lot?

Healthy people do not have bulging muscles.

————————————————-

Fit people have protruding, varicose veins, don’t they, especially those who exercise a lot?

Healthy people do not have veins that protrude, healthy veins cannot be seen.

————————————————-

Therefore to be fit and to be healthy cannot possibly be the same thing, can they?  They are opposites. 

“Health and Fitness” is an oxymoron.

Diets Don’t Work and Here’s Why

Diets don’t actually work, do they?  That’s a fact, now proven scientifically many times.  No matter how enthusiastic you or your dietician may be, all diets only provide a temporary reduction before it all comes back.

Why don’t diets work?  Because, it is not fat.

Your body’s muscles are damaged and this so called, “fat” is your body’s way of protecting itself with a safe layer of cushioning.  When a muscle is damaged, for its own protection it contracts, it seizes and hardens, so protect our muscles, our body covers the damaged area with a soft layer of  cushioning which we call “fat”.

The more damaged our body incurs with just normal living, then the more padding, i.e. fat, our body needs to cushion and protect itself.  That’s why we all get fatter as we get older, men as well as women.

Diets initially appear to work.  As our body is starved of external nourishment, it calls upon its “fat” as an internal, reserve source of food, therefore our bulk reduces.  But when the diet ends, the bulges re-grow, don’t they?

They re-grow because they have been deliberately placed where they are, as a protective padding to guard our damaged muscles and they re-grow larger, because the diet has traumatized our body into thinking that there has been a famine and so, our pro-active body lays down some extra reserve food supplies, just in case.

This cycle is so common that it has even been given a name, “the yo-yo effect” and it occurs much to the confusion of dieticians, doctors and scientists, because they don’t know why.

There is a simple and totally logical explanation for this.

Why?  Because, you are not fat, you are damaged.

If you are fat, then you will have a rounded fat face above a rounded fat neck.  You will have rounded fat fingers on rounded fat hands and rounded fat toes on rounded fat feet.

But, if your body fat is just a combination of up to 4 “spare tyres”, 4 fatty bulges that are drooping around your body, then you are not fat, you are damaged.  Beneath these hanging bulges are seized muscles.

Look at the diagrams below and compare them with your body shape.

4 Bands of Fat Droop around from Back to Front

4 Bands of Fat Droop around from Back to Front

You are not fat because of what you eat, you are fat because you have seized body muscles,  treat the muscles and the padding will disappear, naturally and permanently.

Learn all about your body, how and why your posture has changed, how and why you have those “fatty bulges” and learn why EXERCISE is BAD for YOU.

Exercise Doesn’t Work and Here’s Why!

Exercise doesn’t work, does it?  The results are inconsistent and temporary.  This a fact that thousands of testimonials on the internet will all attest to.

Even after months and months of slogging exercise, there are certain areas of the body where fat and loose skin will not move away and there are just as many testimonials from the once fit and slim who are now excessively fat while claiming that their muscle has turned to fat.  This is nonsense, muscle does not turn to fat anymore than brain turns to kidney.

Frequently, ex-fit people say, “I only have all this extra weight because I stopped exercising” but I say, “No, you have all this extra weight because you started exercising”.

16th. August, 2007 the BBC announced that;

Less than 3 hours of exercise per week, is better for you”.

And just one day later.

17th. August, 2007 the BBC announced that;

More than 3 hours of exercise per week, is essential for you”.

Exercise causes internal damage to muscle fibres, this is why exercise causes pain.  It is ridiculous that gym instructor and keep fit experts say that pain is good, no pain is good.  Pain is a message from torn nerve endings to the brain which says, “Problem.  Stop what you are doing, there is damage within.  Stop now”.   A few days later when these nerve endings are safely encased within newly formed “oedemas”, the pain stops.

Oedemas Encase Nerve Endings and Pain Stops

Oedemas Encase Nerve Endings and Pain Stops

Therefore the pain from your next session is actually caused by the ripping of even more muscle fibres and nerve endings which require even more oedemas and so the overall internal damage accumulates; session after session, month after month.

Inside your damaged muscles contract to protect themselves, they seize up and this is why they bulge.  Bulging solid muscles, like biceps, pecs and six packs are not a sign of health and muscles that are laced with visible veins are unhealthy, period.  The more solid and visible your muscles become, the fatter you will be once you stop exercising.  I’m sure we can all name several movie stars who are perfect examples of this.

The total repair of this muscle damage takes from 2 to 5 years to fully manifest itself within your body.  Long after your gym instructor or keep-fit expert has declared victory, taken the glory and left your life, then the damage will show.  So long after, that you will remember the good, old days of “fitness” and not even associate your past exercise regime with your now, “more than natural”, internal muscle damage with its excessive body bulk, now drooping in front of those muscles which you exercised the most.

All people who exercise, once they have stopped will regain their lost weight, plus more because it is not fat, it is “body cell debris”.

Why do you have all those fatty bulges?
The bulges are not fat but “body cell debris” that is accumulating, for your own protection, as a padding to cushion the sites of your damaged muscles.
This “body cell debris” slows down your blood flow and thus ensures, that the “body cell debris”, for your own protection, is not washed away.  More accumulates and the blood slows down and more accumulates.
It is a vicious circle.  Your body is “blocking up”.

Why doesn’t exercise work?
Exercise initially appears to work.  The enforced pumping of the heart combined with the excessive movement of the muscles, increases your blood flow enough to push away some of the “body cell debris”.  But exercise, pulling and pushing on already seized and misaligned muscles, only creates “more internal damage”.  Consequently, when the exercise regime ends, the bulges will re-grow and in the same places, only next time they will be larger because the newly created damage requires more padding.  The more you exercise the fatter you will be.
Your body is “blocking up”.

Why when you were so fit, are you now so fat?
Due to the exercise in your past, your body has incurred more damage to its muscles than is normal with everyday wear and tear.  This now means, you have more seized muscles and therefore, you have more “body cell debris”.  Muscles do not turn to fat, instead the body covers and protects its damaged muscles with a cushion or padding of “body cell debris”.
Your body is “blocking up”.

So this year don’t waste your time exercising instead learn all about your body and how it works, then you will understand how to fix it.  Learn how and why your posture has changed, how and why you have those “fatty bulges” and learn why EXERCISE is BAD for YOU.

If you would like some more specific information then have a look at my blogs;     “The Delusion of Exercise” and “The Truth of Exercise“.

New Year, New Body? Exercise is BAD for You.

Christmas is over and now you’re feeling fat,
Exercise and diet, what a grim thought is that!
If the bulges, they are many, then no matter what you do,
You cannot remove them fully.  It’s impossible for you.

Why?  Because you are not fat!  You are damaged.  If you are fat, then you will have a rounded fat face above a rounded fat neck.  You will have rounded fat fingers on rounded fat hands and rounded fat toes on rounded fat feet.

But, if your fat is just a combination of up to 4 “spare tyres”, 4 fatty bulges that are drooping around your body then you are not fat, you are damaged.  Beneath these bulges are damaged muscles.

Men’s Beer Bellies

Men’s fat stomachs which we call “beer bellies” are not caused by food nor beer but are in fact the result of a damaged back muscle, called the “serratus posteria”.  This is why diets and exercise don’t work because diets and exercise cannot fix a damaged muscle.  The weight loss gained by diets and exercise is only temporary, just ask anyone who has already tried.

When back muscles seize, stomach muscles relax and vital organs fall forward

Muffin Top Waist – Love Handles

The bulges at our back above the hips which on women we call, “muffin tops” and on men we call, “love handles” are caused by damage to the “quadratus lumborum at L4” and whether this is comforting news or not; given time, everyone in the world suffers this.

Seized Muscles Cause Muffin Top Waists and Love Handles

This is why diets and exercise don’t work because diets and exercise cannot fix a damaged muscle.  The weight loss gained by diets and exercise is only temporary, just ask anyone who has already tried.

Th first step is knowing how your body works then you will understand why Exercise is BAD for You.

Beckham’s Tendon Tear Caused by his OWN SEIZED MUSCLES

David Beckham’s Achilles tendon was torn by his own seized, calf muscles.

Tendons connect muscles to bones.  Tendons are strong, thin lengths of sinew that form extensions to some of our muscles, adding strength, spring and power to our movements.

If we liken our muscles in texture to “elastic”, able to stretch and lengthen or contract and shorten, then our tendons resemble “plastic”.  They are unable to stretch but are more sturdy and have an exceptional, spring like quality which we use to run, jump, type or knit.

When a muscle is injured, for safety, it contracts and shortens, it seizes.  A seized muscle has more strength but it cannot expand to its full length, therefore when Beckham turned on his leg, his seized and shortened calf muscles could not expand.  They could not lengthen and consequently, the pull on the “non-elastic” Achilles tendon was so great, that it caused Beckham’s tendon to tear.

Many professional footballers and sports’ players, because of their training routines, are extremely unhealthy.  They have seized muscles which are clearly visible and permanently bulging through the skin.  When a muscle is healthy, it is only visible and bulging when in action and not, when at rest.  Many footballers pride themselves upon their bulging muscles, but they are in fact, seized muscles.  This is why so many of them incur injuries and also why, one injury always leads to another; from ankle, to knee, to thigh and groin.

If anyone reading this knows Beckham, please tell him,  physio-therapy is bad for him and I guarantee that in 6 months, I can restore his body back to better health, strength and flexibility than he has known for years and years.  His career does not need to be over.

FOOTBALLERS and HEART ATTACKS – HERE’S WHY.

Everyday, either during or just after exercise, “fit” people suffer heart attacks and many of them die; much to the shock and bewilderment of family, friends and indeed, the whole of the western medical profession.

Why are so many “young” footballers suffering heart attacks?  After all, they are the “fittest” people in the world, aren’t they?

Professional footballers spend hours exercising; pushing, pulling and pumping on their clearly visible; “solid and bulging” muscles.

It is currently believed that “exercise is good for us” and that “fitness” gained through “exercise” improves our body’s “cardio-vascular” system; but it doesn’t.

Well, it improves the “cardio” part, the heart but unless our body’s muscles are in “perfect alignment” when we begin the regime; then the “vascular” health, the health of our veins; “veins which are embedded deep within our muscles” diminishes and considerably.

Our heart is only “one half” of our body’s blood circulatory system. The other half; “the returning of the blood to the heart”, the “venous pump” is controlled by all of our body’s other muscles. Fresh blood is pumped out from our heart into the body, via the arteries but it returns to the heart, pumped by our muscles, via the veins.

Our veins are safely encased within our muscles’ flexible, springy fibres and with each movement, with each expansion and contraction, our muscles squeeze and release the veins; and thus, “pump our blood back to the heart”. Therefore the health of our “venous pump”, the returning of our blood back to the heart is dependent upon the health and flexibility of our “body muscles”.

Seized Muscles CANNOT Squeeze Our Veins, CANNOT Return Blood to the Heart

Seized Muscles CANNOT Squeeze Our Veins, CANNOT Return Blood to the Heart

The texture of a muscle is like elastic, if over stretched it loses the soft, springy texture becoming taught, inflexible and in effect, solid (just like Madonna’s). Pulling on an over-stretched or injured muscle does not and will not repair it but rather causes it to “seize” solid and become static; creating stress and misalignment to all its surrounding muscles.

* Pulling on a misaligned muscle does not and will not bring it back into alignment.
* Pulling on a seized muscle does not and will not loosen it.

The more we “exercise”; the more we pull, push or pump on over-stretched, injured, seized and misaligned muscles then the more “seized muscles” we create.

Our blood vessels, both the “arteries” and the “veins” exist within our muscles. They are all embedded safely and snugly within our muscle’s springy fibres.

When a “muscle seizes” then in effect, it “solidifies” and our veins which are normally encased within the muscle’s fibres do not have any space to exist and so, our “veins rise to the muscle’s surface”. They become visible, protruding beneath our skin forming those “blue varicose veins”.

Our Veins and Arteries Suffer when a Muscle Seizes

Our Veins and Arteries Suffer when a Muscle Seizes

  • A seized muscle means “a constricted artery” and reduced blood flow.
  • A seized muscle means “a squashed vein” and reducedblood flow.
  • A seized muscle with its veins on the outside is “incapable” of adequately squeezing and releasing our veins.
  • A seized muscle is “incapable” of performing its part in the “venous pump”.
  • A seized muscle is “incapable” of returning our blood to the heart.

Our heart is the “only organ” in our body that in order to function and pump correctly, “depends upon its blood” to be supplied “from our veins”.

Our body transports just 8 pints, 4.5 litres of blood around some 60,000 miles that’s 100,000 kilometres of blood vessels.

It is no good turning up the pump of the heart (the cardio), “forcing” blood out into the body if the “pump of the returning blood”, the “venous pump” cannot keep up “the same pace”.

Seized and seizing muscles squash and “constrict our arteries”, hindering and “slowing our blood flow” while at the same time as they tighten, they are incapable of squeezing our veins enough, to return blood back to the heart “in time” for it to be pumped out again.

It is the “lack of returning blood” that causes the heart to fail.

The heart muscle is “starved of blood”, it goes into “spasm” and “cramps”; creating the intense chest pain as we suffer a “heart attack”.

The problem is not the heart muscle (the cardio) but rather, the bad condition of our body muscles, those housing the veins (the vascular).  A bad condition “caused by” the self-same exercise regime adopted to make us “fit”.

Madonna’s Veins and Muscles Mean High Risk of Heart Attack

Everyday, “fit” people suffer heart attacks and many of them die; much to the shock and bewilderment of family, friends and indeed, the whole of the western medical profession.

Why are so many “young” footballers suffering heart attacks?  After all, they are the “fittest” people in the world, aren’t they?

Exercise is Bad for Your Body

Fitness is not Health

P.S. If anyone knows Madonna personally, then please ask her to get in touch because I absolutely guarantee that without diet and exercise, I can bring her body back to good health with the muscle tone and skin texture, like that of a 30 year old (almost like a virgin!).

Madonna’s Varicose Veined, “Seized Solid” Muscles are Proof that Exercise is BAD for You

This recent photo of Madonna has brought into question the validity of exercise.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/celebritynews/madonna/5919513/Madonnas-muscular-arms-prompt-criticism-she-has-been-exercising-too-much.html

Exercise is BAD for your body.

Our blood vessels, both the “arteries” and the “veins” exist within our muscles. They are all embedded safely and snugly, within our muscle’s springy fibres.

When a muscle is damaged through injury or strain then for self-protection, it “contracts and tightens”, it “seizes”. When a “muscle seizes” then in effect, it “solidifies” and our veins which are normally encased within the muscle’s fibres, do not have any space to exist and so, our “veins rise to the muscle’s surface”. They become visible, protruding beneath our skin forming those “blue varicose veins”.

Varicose veins” sit above and are caused by “seized muscles”.

Our Veins and Arteries Suffer when a Muscle Seizes

Our Veins and Arteries Suffer when a Muscle Seizes

Madonna as the article explains, has exercised regularly for years and indeed currently, exercises for 12 hours every week; surely if exercise were good for us then she should have the best female body in the world.

Instead, Madonna’s body is a perfect example of

“seized solid” muscles; inflexible, UNHEALTHY muscles.

Fitness is NOT an indicator of Good Health.

See the post: Fitness CAUSES Heart Attacks

Varicose veins are a sign of VERY POOR blood circulation.

Varicose veins are a sign of VERY BAD cardio-vascular health.

Fresh blood is pumped out from the heart into our body via the arteries and it returns to the heart, via the veins.  The pump of the heart, “the cardio” is only “one half” of the blood circulatory system; “the cardiovascular system”.  The other half, medically termed the “venous pump”, is responsible for “returning blood” back to the heart, via the veins; “the vascular” and it is an action performed by; all of our “other muscles”.

Our “body muscles power the “venous pump.

Our “body muscles are responsible for returning blood back to the heart.

Seized Muscles CANNOT Squeeze Our Veins, CANNOT Return Blood to the Heart

Seized Muscles CANNOT Squeeze Our Veins, CANNOT Return Blood to the Heart

Seized muscles with their veins on the outside, CANNOT squeeze our veins fully, they CANNOT return blood to the heart.

Madonna is now in DANGER of suffering a heart attack, just like all those other, so called “fit” people and footballers who have suffered a heart spasm either during or just after exercise.

When blood cannot return to the heart in time to pump it back out again; then the heart muscle is starved of blood causing it to go into “spasm”, into “cramp”, into a heart attack.

P.S. If anyone knows Madonna personally, then please ask her to get in touch because I absolutely guarantee that without diet and exercise, I can bring her body back to good health with the muscle tone and skin texture, like that of a 30 year old (almost like a virgin!).

The Human Body – What is it?

The Human Body

No Muscles No Body

No muscles, no body.

Our Nervous System

No Muscles No Nerves

No muscles, no movement. No muscles, no nerves.

Our Blood Vessels

No Muscles No Blood Vessels

No muscles, no blood vessels.

Our Blood Circulatory System

The heart is a muscle.

Fresh blood is pumped out from the heart into our body via the arteries and it returns to the heart, via the veins.  The pump of the heart, “the cardio” is only “one half” of the blood circulatory system; “the cardiovascular system”.  The other half, medically termed the “venous pump”, is responsible for “returning blood” back to the heart, via the veins; “the vascular” and it is an action performed by; all of our “other muscles”.

Our “body muscles power the “venous pump.

Our “body muscles are responsible for returning blood back to the heart.

Vertical Cross Section of a Vein

No muscles, no circulation.

Conventional Western Medicine and the Human Body

Conventional western medicine totally ignores the idea that;

“the human body is a single entity which functions, as a whole”.

Instead, the body has been territorially dissected and privatized.  Individual body parts have been sectioned off, specialized in and viewed in total isolation by consultant doctors.  A “land grab” on the body.

In conventional western medicine the more than “six hundred, multi-stranded, “lever and pulley” muscles” of our body are “totally discounted” under the group naming of; soft tissue.

Our muscles are viewed as an unimportant “body filler”.

A “filler without significance” which may be “sliced through and severed”, with impunity. Once a muscle has been “severed” and then “repaired”.  It is “physically shorter”.

It is “physically incapable” of ever, “functioning fully” again.

In 2007 the BBC reported the findings of a US medical study which after analyzing the findings of 23 other medical studies, concluded;

“Surgery doesn’t work”.

5 to 7 years after pain-relief surgery, all patients reported being in

worse pain” than before the procedure.”

Rarely will a diagnosis conclude that; “the pain could be resultant from damage to one of our hundreds of muscles; as they contract, seize and pull upon their bones, thus causing “internal tearing and our body’s “misalignment” with direct “blood flow restrictions and “nerve constrictions”.

How could the pain possibly be caused by, something which

does not exist”?

We have machines to look at our; blood, brains, bones, eyes, ears, throats, hearts, arteries, veins, nerves, lungs, livers, kidneys, unborn children, stomachs, bowels and even our anuses.  Is there a machine that inspects the muscles?

Indeed most machines seem to qualify their very usefulness, by their ability to view straight through the “soft tissue”.  As if our 650 muscles are invisible.  As if, they are irrelevant.  As if, they do not exist.

There are Dermatologists (skin), Haematologists (blood), Cardiologists (heart), Neurologists (nerves), Osteopaths (bones), Psychiatrists (brain-drugs), Neurosurgeons (brain-surgery), Dentists (teeth), Ophthalmologists (eyes), Gynaecologists (female reproduction), Obstetricians (pregnancy), Paediatricians (children), Oncologists (cancer) and then there are Pathologists; we even have a doctor for when we are dead!

Here’s a test?

What is the name of the consultant doctor specializing with the muscles?

By the way, Physiotherapists are not doctors.

Wrinkles, Loose Skin, Dead Skin, Deep Lines and Cellulite. All Caused by Seized Muscles.

Blood is our skin’s moisturizer.

New blood feeds our skin from within, keeping it fresh, supple and plump.

Healthy skin has a sheen not shine with a texture like linen not silk.

Blood is pumped into the body by our heart but our blood circulation is equally dependent upon our body’s “vascular health”, the health of our veins which are all embedded within our muscles. Therefore our muscles pump the blood back. If a muscle is seized and does not pump its veins; then consequently, our blood flow is slowed down, reduced.

Healthy skin sheds up to half a million cells every hour.  Normally, our skin is totally replaced from the inside out over a 3 week time period but, as we go through life and our body becomes damaged within and as more of our muscles seize, then we develop a slower and therefore reduced blood flow which directly affects the condition of our skin.

Our “skin renewal” process underneath is slowed down and therefore on the surface, dead cells accumulate because our surface skin takes longer to shed.  The deterioration shows, as the skin which now has to remain longer than its expected time span; “dries out”, “flakes and takes longer to heal”.

This extended time period, also leaves our skin susceptible to “external attacks from “micro-organisms”.  “Bacterial”, “fungal” and “parasitical” infections can lead to the “irritating inflammations” of “dermatitis”.

The condition of our skin corresponds directly to the condition of those muscles which lie beneath.  A muscle changing from health, into the first stages of deterioration, reflects its status on our skin by the surface texture becoming “jellylike and glassy”.

Above seized muscles, where the skin is not being adequately fed, the temperature drops and our skin feels “cool to the touch”.  The healthy sheen turns “dull” and the fresh plumpness disappears leaving the shrivelled “prune type wrinkles”.

Deep lines” appear directly above the junction of where two or more seized muscles meet.

The suffering skin “loses its elasticity and it “sags”.  However, the thickness of skin does not change and so the expression “loose skin” when used to describe the bulk, hanging from our upper arms or inner thighs, is misleading.  It is not just skin that is hanging; but skin, laden with “body cell debris” (i.e. dead cells and cell waste) that is being left behind because of our reduced blood flow. Loose skin” is skin that is sagging under the weight of the internal “body cell debris” that is being left behind, like silt in a stream and the bulk is accumulating between the skin and our muscles.

As the “body cell debris” accumulates, it “pushes out” and strains against the “mesh structure” of our skin, creating the “orange peel” look which we call; “cellulite”.  As the bulk grows larger, it pushes out more and under pressure, parts of our skin’s mesh structure fail and “fatty nodules” burst out, thus completing the picture of; “lumpy, dimply, wrinkly, skin-sagging cellulite”.

Ultimately, when our blood supply is reduced, to just a trickle, then we develop the unsightly “dead skin”.  The dry, hard skin which forms in “painful crusts” at our elbows, on the knees, heels, balls of our feet and under our toes.

Our wrinkles, loose skin, dead skin, deep lines and cellulite are all caused by a reduced blood supply which is caused by our seized muscles.

“Muffin Top” Waists with “Saddle Bag” Hips and Thighs.

Our “muffin top” waists or love handles” describe that bulge which appears at our back above the hips and which bulks out our waistline.  This bulge is not fat, it is caused by damage to a small muscle in our back, the “quadratus lumborum” at L4.  And whether this is comforting news or not; given time “everyone in the world both men and women will suffer this.

Women have “saddlebag hips” and “bulky thighs” not because they are fat but because muscles in their hips are “seized”.

From being children, little boys are more likely to be climbing trees and doing press ups or pull ups; while little girls spend a great deal of their time, perfecting the leg throwing activities of handstands, cartwheels and of course, the splits.

“Muffin Top” Waists with “Saddle Bag” Hips and Thighs.

Damaged Muscles Causing Body Bulges

Damaged Muscles Causing Body Bulges

Women’s “saddlebag hips” and “bulky thighs” are in part due to these “leg throwing” activities when we are young but also when we are older, sex contributes as an activity which causes the muscles of our hips and inner thighs to suffer damage and strain.

When a muscle is under strain then for “self-protection” it contracts, shortens and pulls upon its bones. This “pulling” causes the muscle to “tear or fray” all along the muscle to bone “join line” and as a result but also by design, tiny internal scabs, medically termed “oedemas” are created. These “oedemas” act like a “glue”, to hold the “fraying muscle tissue” onto its bones; but equally, these “oedemas” (our body’s “mechanism self-repair”) create “blockages” that hinder the flow of our blood.

Everyday our body creates millions of body cells to replace those that die. Dead cells and cell waste i.e. our “body cell debris” is normally carried away by our body in the passing blood. However, as our body becomes strewn with thousands of tiny oedemas, then in time, over years our “body cell debris” begins to “snag on” and “build up” around these “blockages”; further damming and slowing our blood supply and therefore “our bulges grow”.

Saddle Bag Hips

The bulge that sits just below the hip bone is created from the straining of a muscle called the “gluteus medius”. This is usually a large bulge and it spreads around to our front, “bulking out” our hips creating the middle bulge of the “saddle bag” look.

The “gluteus medius” like a fan, splays around the arc of our hip bone, the “ilium” pulling and connecting it to the top of our thigh bone, the “femur”. This muscle “frays all around the rim of the hip” and also at the top of the “femur”. “Repairs” are made, “body cell debris” accumulates and we get those “two bulging bands” covered in “cellulite” which create our “heavy hips and thighs”.

Cellulite” occurs above and only above our “seized muscles”; this is why, our cellulite only appears in certain locations. This is also why, even though we may exercise for many hours over many months, still we have skin that droops and refuses to move.

Women have “saddlebag hips” and “bulky thighs” not because they are fat but because muscles in their hips are “seized”.

So, What’s the Answer?

The first thing you need to know is; “Exercise is BAD for You”

and that includes, “stretching” of any kind, long walks and swimming.

Seized Muscles – What Can You Do?

Seized Muscles

Exercise is BAD for You

If you are reading this then probably, you have some “seized muscles” which are;

  • pulling on your bones,
  • causing your body to distort,
  • restricting your movements,
  • causing you pain; and/or tingles, numbness, itching and cramp;
  • while creating your varicose veins,
  • and cellulite

therefore, …you want an answer.

1.   The first thing you need to know is that Exercise is BAD for You and that includes; stretching of any kind, long walks, running and swimming.

2.  Next, there is only one solution, only one way to relax seized muscles and that is to have some massages on the seized up area.

3.  Visit a professional practioner in Swedish Therapeutic Massage (5 hours over 3 weeks) or page down for some self-massage tips.

______________________________________

In a nutshell, life is about blood. New blood means new growth.

There is only one way to repair our seized muscles and that is with fresh blood.  It is necessary to return the flow of fresh blood through the damaged muscles.

New blood means new growth.

  • With fresh blood “cell renewal” takes place and new muscle fibres grow enabling our muscles to relax, lengthen and re-align themselves.
  • Relaxed and aligned muscles, release their “compressing grip” upon our nerves thus stopping the pain, upon our bones improving and straightening our posture and upon our arteries and veins thus improving and maintaining a new, healthy blood flow.

______________________________________

Why is Exercise is BAD for You?

Stretching, pulling, pushing and pumping on a “seized muscle” does not release the muscle, it just “rips” more muscles fibres.  This is the truth of exercise and the reason why, you have pain the following day.

The notion that “exercise is good for us” is false, exercise is a short term delusion.

  • Pulling on an “over-stretched” or “injured muscle” does not and will not repair it but rather, causes it to “seize” solid and become static, creating stress and “misalignment” to all its surrounding muscles.
  • Pulling on a “misaligned muscle” does not and will not, bring it back into alignment.
  • Pulling on a “seized muscle” does not and will not, loosen it.

To continue the enforced movement of an injured body part, does not create healing but rather, stops it. Continuing to move or “exercise an injury” while ignoring the pain, or using pain killing drugs to hide the presence of pain, is going against our body’s own natural mechanisms.

Our body gives us pain, so that we do not move.

The objective is to avoid more pain, we will keep still.

The more you exercise, the more you pull, push or pump on over-stretched, injured, seized and misaligned muscles then the more seized muscles you create.

______________________________________

What You Can Do

First, you MUST stop all exercising now.

******************** Notice ********************

NO liability is accepted for any losses, damage, injury or other consequences as a result of the use of any information offered herein, below.

*******************************************************

Be realistic, you cannot redress the damage accumulated

over years, in just a few days, it will take a few weeks.

Each time you make a movement, hundreds of your muscles are all called into action at once.  They are activated in a set sequence, all contracting, expanding, pulling and depending upon each other to achieve the movement’s flow.

You don’t have just one seized muscle, you have many.

1. Visit a Professional

Go for some massages on the seized up areas and in particular, on all the surrounding muscles. This will circulate blood through your body without straining your muscles.

Type of Massage

Not a deep, “digging in”, sports type massage nor a relaxing “skin rub” but find someone; experienced with a firm touch offering an “invigorating” massage based upon the principles of our muscle structure,  (Swedish Therapeutic).

Number of Treatments

5 one hour sessions over 3 weeks (4/5 days apart).  Then for 3 weeks, do nothing, just take things very easy and heal.

You may need to repeat the process again for another 6 weeks.

2. Self Treatment

Try treating yourself.

10 minutes per day, 3 times per week and in 3 weeks you will be amazed at the difference and how good you will feel.

  • The secret and your objective is to loosen the seized area enough for “fresh blood to re-gain access” then your body will do the rest.
  • (Imagine a frozen chicken, at first it is solid and static but as it thaws, it becomes soft and movable.)  
  • Little and often, it is a process.
  • You will need to treat all of the muscles surrounding your problem area.
  • Hip Problem; treat from your waist at the back, cover all the buttock and down your thigh to your knee.
  • Lower Back; treat from your ribs at the back, all across the middle back, over the hips to and including the buttocks.
  • Upper Arms; treat from below the elbow up along the underarm. Use your hand to hold around the arm as you continue into the arm pit and as far you can reach, to the shoulder blade behind. Also massage at the front, the whole of your chest area from the centre bone, across the upper breast, to the collar bone and out to the shoulder. Continue along to the arm and massage the front muscles down to the elbow.
  • It is a PROCESS. You cannot rush the process.
  • Your objective is stimulation.
  • Your body needs the time of a few days, between each session, to marinade in the new blood. New blood means new growth.
  • Massage the area and 3 days later your muscles will be softer.
  • After each session the area becomes softer and softer.

Methodology

(i) You will need lots of oil or lots of soap if you are in the bath/shower but do not use a cream or moisturizer. This is important, to avoid skin to skin friction (cooking oil is fine, you can wash it off afterwards).

(ii) Start using the whole of your hand just gliding over the whole area.

(iii) Do not dig in. Do not hurt yourself.

(iv) Establish a rhythm to your movements, (you may wish to massage in time to music).

(v) Massage for 1 to 2 minutes and then stop and wait for 1 to 2 minutes or while waiting, treat another part of your body.

(vi) Start again for 1 to 2 minutes, this time massage using the whole of your hand in small circles about the size of a saucer. Then stop and repeat. .

(vii) After 10 minutes on each area, you are finished.

(viii) However this must be repeated regularly, every 3/4 days for 3 weeks.

(ix) Then stop for 3 weeks and if you need more, then continue.

(x) The more parts of your body that you massage, the better you will feel.

Aches, Pains, Twitches and Restless Legs. All Caused by Seized Muscles.

Do you wake and start the day, “pain free” and fresh but as the day goes by, do you suffer those “aches” and “burning sensations” of headaches, aching shoulders, stiff necks, aching legs and the dreaded backache?

Pain is exhausting and debilitating. When we are in pain; then we notice every second of every minute of every hour of every day.

What is pain?

Well, it is an “attention grabbing message” which travels along our nerves to our brain and it tells us that, “something is wrong within”.

What causes pain?

Pain has just 3 causes, a nerve is either;

(i) diseased or (ii) injured or (iii) it is being squashed.

If we are not diseased and we are not injured but still, we have “painful messages of distress” then “our nerves are being squashed”.

Our nerves which transmit those painful messages, are all embedded within our body’s muscles. We may start the day fresh with relaxed muscles after a night of rest but as we perform our daily tasks, our “muscles tighten”, they contract, “grip around” and constrict our nerves; thus causing at first, “burning sensations” then “aches” and finally “pain”.

No Muscles No Nerves

We have pain because our “nerves are being squeezed” within and by, our “seizing muscles”.

When seizing muscles “squeeze our nerves” then we ache.

When seized muscles “squash our nerves” then we feel pain.

Twitches and Restless Legs

Muscle “twitches” and the irritating problem of “restless legs” are also symptoms that manifest because our nerves are being squeezed within.

Our nerves transmit messages in the form of electrical impulses, to and from our brain. When seizing muscles intermittently “squeeze” but then quickly “release” our nerves then those electrical impulses which travel along our nerves, become interrupted”.

Consequently, the messages that control the movements our muscles also become interrupted and we experience “involuntary muscle twitches” that vary from a simple, “one muscle twitch” to the disturbing and irritating problem of “restless legs”. Twitches and restless legs are both symptoms which noticeably effect people at the end of the day.

Our aches, pains, twitches and restless legs are all symptoms of and are caused by, our seizing muscles.

Cellulite? Cellulite is Not Fat. It is Caused by Seized Muscles.

Cellulite is not fat. Cellulite is not loose skin. Cellulite is “body cell debris”.  

Cellulite is “body cell debris” i.e. dead cells and cell waste; that is accumulating, for our own protection, between our “seized muscles” and our skin.

Body cell debris” occurs above and only above our “seized muscles”; this is why, our cellulite only appears in certain locations. This is also why, even though we may exercise for hours over months, still we have skin that droops and refuses to move. The amount of cellulite that we each have, is dependent upon, the length of time that our muscles beneath have been seized; the longer time, the more cellulite.

The condition of our skin corresponds directly to the condition of those muscles which lie beneath. Above “seized muscles”, where the skin is not being adequately fed, the temperature drops and our skin feels “cool to the touch”. The “healthy sheen” turns “dull” and the fresh plumpness disappears leaving the “shrivelled, prune type wrinkles”.

A “healthy muscle” has a “springy” texture that enables it, to “cushion” and therefore, “absorb without damage”; the impact shocks from our daily, bumps and knocks.

But a “seized muscle” is taught. It is inflexible and unable to withstand, even a minor bump; because its “protective, springy cushioning” is lost.

Our body therefore, compensates for this. When a muscle has seized and in effect, become “solid” then above it, “body cell debris” accumulates, making up for the muscle’s “loss of flexibility”; by providing a new layer of “impact-absorbing, protective cushioning”.

As more gathers, it pushes out and strains against the “mesh structure” of our skin, creating the “orange peel” look which we call; “cellulite”. More accumulates and in time, under pressure, parts of our skin’s mesh structure fail and “fatty nodules” burst out, thus completing the picture of;

wrinkly, lumpy, dimply, skin-sagging cellulite.

The “thickness of our skin” does not change and so the expression “loose skin” when used to describe the bulk, that is hanging from our “upper arms” or “inner thighs”, is misleading.

Cellulite is not just skin that is hanging; but skin, “laden with” and “sagging under” the weight of “body cell debris.

Cellulite accumulates above and is caused by “seized muscles”.

Varicose Veins, Thread Veins, Swollen Legs. All Caused by Seized Muscles.

Our blood vessels, both the “arteries” and the “veins” exist within our muscles. They are all embedded, safely and snugly, within our muscle’s springy fibres.

When a muscle is damaged, through injury or strain then for self-protection it “contracts and tightens”, it “seizes”. When a “muscle seizes” fully then in effect, it “solidifies” and our “veins” which are normally encased within the muscle’s fibres; do not have any space to exist and so, our “veins rise to the muscle’s surface”. They become visible, protruding beneath our skin forming those “blue varicose veins”. Varicose veins” sit above and are caused by “seized muscles”.

Our Veins and Arteries Suffer when a Muscle Seizes

Our Veins and Arteries Suffer when a Muscle Seizes

A “vein” is an inanimate tube encased within our muscle’s fibres. Contained within the tube and placed apart at regular intervals, are “valves”. When a “muscle contracts” it squashes flat the tube of the vein and thus, blood is forced to move along into a different section of the tube, the vein. This mechanism is medically termed, the “venous pump”.  Our muscles “pump” our blood back to the heart through the vascular system.

Our Muscles Pump Our Blood Back to the Heart Through the Vascular System

Our Muscles Pump Our Blood Back to the Heart Through the Vascular System

A “seized muscle” with its veins on the surface is incapable of squeezing flat, emptying and thus, “cleaning” our veins adequately. Consequently, blood pools into and “over flows” our “vein’s holding valves”. The excess “blood seeps out” into our body and “penetrates our skin creating those visible, “red thread veins. Thread veins” sit above and are caused by “seized muscles”.

Swollen legs, ankles and feet” are a symptom of a “main vein” being severely constricted. When muscles in “our hips seize” then our “veins become squashed” between them and in effect, the “vein which is almost flattened” becomes “blocked”.

When a “main vein” in our legs is “constricted” then even though, our heart may pump blood into our legs, if our “veins” are not able to “return it back out” again, at the same pace then our legs fill up, becoming “engorged”. We may start the day with normal sized feet and legs but as our muscles tighten, they “squash our veins” and slow down the pace of the “exiting blood”. By the end of the day, our lower legs are “full of blood; red and bloated”.

Swollen legs, ankles and feet” are a symptom of a squashed “vein” which is caused by seized muscles”.
