There is an epidemic of poor
metabolic health. We know it by its symptoms.
People are tired all the time. They're over weight, they get frequent
headaches and suffer from abdominal pain, insomnia, brain fog, reflux,
constipation, piles, sore muscles and the deadly metabolic trinity -
high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood sugar.
It is growing
at an exponential rate as people lead increasing sedentary lives, stuff
themselves with various mixtures of fat, flour and sugar, drink more and more alcohol, cola
and bovine milk and live lives that swing between stressed-out-of-their-brain
and quiet desperation.
There is no
known medical cure for poor metabolic health. That's because the
symptoms are a reflection of fitness problems, not medical problems (and
only on the rarest of occasions can you fix fitness problems with

that delivers essential nutrients to cells and removes waste products
from them. The system is driven by the
'metabolic engine' that resides inside your torso.

acquainted with the underlying causes of metabolic dysfunction. Similarly with physicians,
otherwise they wouldn't be prescribing drugs to mask the symptoms.
You can be
certain that headaches are not caused by a lack of Panadol, depression
is not caused by a lack of Zoloft, Reflux is not caused by a lack of
Mylantin, abdominal pain is not caused by a lack of Prilosec, High blood
pressure is not caused by a lack of Avapro, High blood cholesterol is
not caused by a lack of Lipitor, high blood sugar is not caused by a
lack of Gliclazide any more that piles are caused by a lack of Anusol!

and prescription tools you provide you, your doctor and fitness
practitioner with every encouragement and incentive to keep yourself in
good metabolic health.
Have you every
watched your computer defrag?
You may well ask,
'What is a defrag?'
Well, to keep a
long story short, and in layman's terms, when your computer
saves information to the hard disc it can tend to do it in a
chaotic fashion. Bits of the one document can be saved in
different places on the disk.
The net effect of
this chaotic placement of data is that it slows down the
retrieval of the information. It takes a long time for documents
to open up. Over the weeks, months and years the ghosts in the
machine appear to be slowing it down.
describes it thus:
Disk Defragmenter consolidates
fragmented files and folders on your computer's hard disk, so
that each occupies a single, contiguous space on the volume. As
a result, your system can gain access to your files and folders
and save new ones more efficiently. By consolidating your files
and folders, Disk Defragmenter also consolidates the volume's
free space, making it less likely that new files will be
