Fitness Is About Health and Staying Healthy Is About Good Body Maintenance

Some are born with an inbuilt knowledge of what one’s body needs. Others are easily misguided and led by fashion, popularity, and peer pressure into things that should be avoided. There is also the bodies willingness or otherwise to partake of harmful substances. In my case my body could not tolerate chemicals or anything that affected the brain. This was guided by my keen desire for knowledge and making my intelligence number one.

The lessons learned are that what we do when we are young has an impact on aging and on what diseases and handicaps we will face as the years pile up. Good body maintenance is about avoiding anything toxic and that includes even dangerous rides at carnivals.

The latest fad is to take rides on vehicles that cause a drop and sudden stop, as in some crazy fairground roller coaster adventures. Watching one of these recently it was hard for me to believe that people not only put their own bodies at risk but that of their children in the name of having fun. The human brain is soft and very easily damaged.

The body warns of impending danger through the adrenalin glands and the sensation that many find addictive. As adrenalin flows it increases the heart rate and provides us with a flight or fight experience. In other words, it prepares for recovery from harm.

As the body jerks into a sudden stop the cranium and brain collide. This causes a degree of bruising and can even result in death or paralysis. But that doesn’t have to happen immediately as delayed response may see the effects of concussion several hours or even a day after the event.

Headaches; nausea; dizziness; memory problems; irritability; as well as balance and sleeping difficulties may follow. Look at these symptoms and compare them to those of Alzheimer’s or dementia patients. With the latter there are huge changes in brain functions that include memory loss.While there is no proven correlation to support the linking of the two it doesn’t mean it is not correct.

Drugs also affect the brain and taking pills on a regular basis may also be leading to the onset of Alzheimer’s or dementia. While there are no studies to prove this is the case it’s still a matter of common sense.

If one is looking for a fitness regime then start with the brain and all other things will surely follow. It has the ability to tell us when we are going wrong. Drugs, on the other hand, interfere with that side of nature. We educate the brain by what we do to our bodies. If we stuff ourselves with things like sweets and alcohol, and tell it that the odd adrenalin rush is OK, then changes in that vital organ will impel us to take more of it.

  1. Indeed, I didn’t specify, but I meant violent crimes. Naturally there is crime everywhere, but the proportions what matter, and I was specifically thinking about my situation. I know the Japanese are incredible at marketing their country, same thing I meant by “fantasy created by the media” up there. Lying through fake smiles and being vague and ambiguous as hell is like a nation pastime there, or so I’ve heard. I guess there is a reason why people praise Japan for their tech and culture and not their honesty…I did look into this pretty well myself. There is indeed many criminal things going on in Japan, the rampant corruption, willful negligence, embezzlement, blackmail, not to mention the underground human trafficking and illegal porn industry, the Yakuza, etc. And yes, I heard about groping and harassment of women, which is really sad. I agree sometimes the lines are blurry when it comes to crime, it’s a matter of perspective really, and in this case I meant actual violence, which is pretty low in Japan all things considered. At least I won’t have to worry much about getting shot, shanked or beaten to a pulp for no reason just walking down the street (and I guess I don’t really have to fear groping that much…). From what I heard from foreigners living there, they never actually had to fear for their lives aside from natural disasters, which is a lot better than most other parts of the planet. I would love to see Japan as safe as the Japanese make it out to be, but that’s a fantasy too. While I can’t do much about corruption, break-ins and human trafficking, at least the types of crimes that concern me are pretty damn low, which is why I brought it up as a selling point for me, I didn’t mean it as an empirical truth or anything.There is a lot going on above and under the surface, like you said, in Japan you can see another side of humanity, literally and figuratively. Maybe I should write an article about this myself, like “Japan: a culture of double-standards” or something. I’m no literary genius, so I guess I leave the story time to you, Seeroi, you are good at this. Also, thank you for believing in me! I know it’s not easy to be nice to complete strangers like this, especially for a social brick like myself, so thank you for the encouragement. I still have quite a ways to go before it happens, but the dream never dies. I WILL get to Japan one day, and I WILL drag you out to some izakaya, fill you up with udon and cheap shochu and then sit in a park sipping malt liquor (while definitely not being shanked) and desperately try to have meaningful conversation while me being secretly scared to death by the notion of connecting with another human being on more than “how’s the weather” level.
