  • 14. What About Aging?Perfect health is possible at almost any age. A long period ofdebilitating dysfunction as a consequence of aging is not the normin other animals, and is not occurring in some human populations.Diet and lifestyle are important factors. Damage done can often bereversed by doing the right things later in life. There is no inherentreason for you to be any less energetic and healthy at the age of 55 Copyright © 2011,VitalObjectives.

  • 17. Your Body KnowsYour body has the built-in capacity to be perfectly healthy. In fact,a continuous process of self-repair and self-re-generation is adefining feature of life as such. Your own body is therefore your firstally in the pursuit of health and everything good that health entails.Your task is to help your body do what it already “knows” how to dothrough its genetic programming.

  • 20. The Body in HealthYour body performs its mission of staying alive throughinterconnected systems and functions (such as the ones in theillustration below). These interact with the internal and externalenvironment. At every instant of your life, your body processes anincalculable number of signals from the environment and makesinternal adjustments to sustain life and health. This is what’s calledhomeostasis.

  • 21. The Body in HealthIf your goal is to be healthy, you need to work in accordance withyour body’s strive for homeostasis — not against it. As we saidbefore, your task is to help your body do what it already “knows”.Attempts to work against the body to achieve some perceived healthgoal is as futile as central planning in economics. Unfortunately mostdiets and many popular pharmaceutical treatments fall into the lattercategory with detrimental side effects as the result.

  • 32. Dysregulation &Now it is time to scare you by discussing what happens when youfail to support your body properly. In other words, when youchronically expose your body to stressors that it isn’t built tohandle, and when you don’t nourish it properly to deal withchallenges. Unfortunately, what we will describe is what most people Nervous system Metabolic system Immune system Detox system Digestive system Endocrine system Copyright © 2011,VitalObjectives. All rights reserved.
  • 33. Dysregulation &In the first stage of over-stress and malnourishment, the body is able tocope through its built in homeostatic controls. In this stage, which canlast for a long time depending on the robustness of your body, you willfeel relatively fine and symptom free, though you may not beexperiencing true, vibrant health in the way that we described it earlier. Nervous system Stressors Nourishment Metabolic system Immune system Detox system Digestive system Endocrine system Copyright © 2011,VitalObjectives. All rights reserved.
  • 34. Dysregulation &As you continue to neglect your body’s true needs, it will begin todeplete the internal resources needed to continue to maintainhomeostasis. One or more system or organ begin to show internalsigns of stress and dysregulation. Since all systems are interconnected,they are all affected to a degree. You may still not notice much of anysymptoms. Your doctor will find you perfectly “normal”. Life goes on,but you might say to yourself "Oh, well, I guess Im getting older."

  • 35. Dysregulation &As dysregulation continues, it causes further negative ripple effects onthe body’s systems, and sooner or later you will begin to experiencedefinite symptoms. At this point, one or more of your body’ssubsystems may already be in a compromised state. Your doctor,however, will typically still find you “normal”. You might go to yourcorner drug store to buy a remedy, or just shrug things off. “After all,most everyone these days is obese, have bad skin, frequent colds, anda bit of ADHD.” Nervous system Metabolic system Immune system Detox system Digestive system Endocrine system Copyright © 2011,VitalObjectives.

  • 38. Symptomatic DeatHealth h As long as the root causes for dysregulation persist, the body becomes weaker and less able overall to deal with stressors. It becomes vulnerable to challenges that normally wouldn’t pose a problem, such as the common cold. Symptoms worsen and multiply. At some point your symptoms may finally form a pattern that your doctor will diagnose as a clinically recognized "syndrome" or disease, and attempts to treat it. Your body has now sunk far into a dysfunctional state. You are on your way to a heart attack, irreversible organ damage, cancer, or the outbreak of a debilitating chronic disease.
