“I don’t argue with the body Jerry. It’s an argument you can’t win.”
I’m constantly advising people to let performance be their guide when it comes to weight loss, recovery, injury rehab and prehab and so on. This is because the body doesn’t lie very often, especially if you’re in tune with how yours works. I was initially a little hesitant to run this scenario when it came to something I don’t understand, like cancer, but it worked like a charm (see video). Granted, not the charm I’d have liked, but at least it didn’t lie.
It seems as the de-facto mode in our drug-and-junk addled society is to mask our body’s signals. I’ve never understood that too much, since this dialog is absolutely fascinating. I supposed drugs can be that way, too, but if you’re constantly masking your natural signals you’re missing out on heaps of great stuff in life. I guess I’m going to find out more about drugs than I ever thought. Interested to gauge how a life of au natural is going to jive with that. Maybe good, maybe bad but, either way, at least I’m learning something new.
With that we end the pre-treatment cancer series. The blog will now get back to it’s regularly scheduled programming, along with periodic cancer reports as there will be much discovery happening. Already I’m experiment with some dietary protocols to maximize chemo and I’m pretty sure I’ll come out of this with a pretty decent hospital training plan. Rumor has it (though I never heard of it actually happening) is that rock climber Tony Yaniro casted his entire body so it would atrophy because he wanted to build it back up to be more sport specific. Whether true or not, he did establish what at the time was the hardest route in the world, and I like the template regardless. I’ve done some body sculpting in the past. This will give me another chance at it. Should be an interesting journey.
