Imagine what would life be like, if for 24 hours a day; you had to wade through
an ever deepening pile of trash. Worse, it is your trash. There it sits, crusts
of black burned buttered toast, grisly bits of beefy roast, coffee grounds,
potato peelings things you ate that you’re still feeling.
Adding insult to injury your trash men, refuse to pick it up. You’ve
tried to burn it, but laws prohibits that. Burying it is no longer viable.
Your yard now smells and is growing Coke bottles and T.V. dinner trays.
Calling the Sanitation Department is the only option. But the last time
you called you were suspended on hold for 2 hours and hung up on. The
time before that, busy signals not to mention the agonizing answering
machine or the calls that just ring forever!
But this time will be different. You steel yourself against the obstacles,
pick up your phone and dial with a vengeance.
Magically, someone answers! But she sounds like she’s drunk! You
hear partying in the background. What the heck is going on here?
Taking no guff you demand to speak to a supervisor. Again you are placed
on hold. Seconds later, your cell phone rings. There you stand at the
crossroads, hang up on the Sanitation Department and answer your cell
or just let it go to voice mail.
Beads of sweat clustering on your forehead; you capitulate and answer
the screaming little device. What a picture, you now have phones to both
The cell phone call is Trudy from your office. She tells you that you
have a call and is transferring it to you. The next thing you know you
hear your voice saying hello in your right then back to your left ear.
The Sanitation Department has transferred your irate trash call to you.
At that moment, you are seized with the realization that you are the
Head of the Sanitation Department.
You realize that your whole mess is your fault! In the horror of all
horrors you are the person in charge and the victim! What kind of a bad
novel is this?
Welcome to the catch 22 of health. You are the villain, sheriff and
or hero all in one.
Your body deals with this problem every day. Every pain you have ever
gotten is a variation of the call above. Pain is the phone call to the
guy in charge (You) asking for someone to come pick up this %$+#*6@!
The more junk we come in contact with, be it sweets, beer, pizza, candy
bars or gasoline fumes, the more waste accumulates in our muscles, joints
Thanks to T.V., advertising and medical school, we are taught that aches
and pains are trivial. We are conditioned to believe that pain should
be covered over by medication and ignored.
Wall Street advertisers tell us that if you suffer with indigestion,
shut off the acid producers of your body, if your joints hurt, take a
pill. If your knees click take a pill. If your back is sore, it’s
your mattress' fault. Ergo, buy a new mattress and take a pill.
The last paragraph is biblical law to the Wall Street ad man!
Our body has several sanitation centers; a short list includes the kidneys,
the liver and the lungs. When these waste centers are not doing their
job, we suffer. If the trash men (the fluids of the body) are not out
picking up trash, it just sits there piling up.
If waste is not being removed from your joints, they will hurt, become
stiff or inflamed. It all sounds simple, and it is. Thank medical science
and advertisers for making it confusing and mysterious.
Feeling better is comprised of simple solutions. Do not consume abrasive,
damage causing products. The following items disable or harm the sanitation
centers of the body:
1 White sugar and or refined sugars
3 Fast food
4 All processed carbohydrates including bread, pasta,
crackers, pizza, cake, candy and soda.
5 Anything sold in a cellophane wrapper.
TRY: Drinking more water. Find out how your body responds to drinking
100 ounces a day. You will be surprised how you feel.
A note on water: There is not one diet on the planet that does not recommend
water. Not one! Water is the cornerstone of our survival. Without it
we will die in a few days.
Nevertheless, water is not a diet. It is part of a healthy lifestyle
To summarize, there are several things to do to feel better in life.
Most of the answers are found in just taking out the trash. If you support
your liver, kidneys, heart, lungs and drink lots of water, you have put
yourself on the road to feeling great.
If your mom ever looked at your room and said “This place is a
pigsty! Clean it up.” Just imagine what she would say if she could
see the inside of your liver or kidneys today.
So heed her command, “Clean up your room” (your body), and
while you’re at it, wash behind your ears.
