This is one of the most important bits of health information you will ever come across (though I can’t promise it won’t make you giggle).
Don’t Be An Air Head!
It was one of those great learning moments – circa 2002 with my beloved mentor, Gil Jacobs. He had me, forgive the pun, LMAO while we were otherwise engaged in what he spunkily coined ‘the colonic action’ (an entirely wholesome pursuit, despite what it might conjure up for some of you with your minds in the gutter!).
Gil was pointing out to me how dramatically the shape & size of a handful of the the most famous male actors’ skulls morphed (ballooned actually), between their early 20’s (when their skulls were still relatively small and round like a child’s) and their late 30’s-40s, at which point their skulls seemed to swell close to twice the original size, (meanwhile also losing their original, strong head shape and facial features).
Naturally, these observations were strictly academic, not at all mean-spirited (and I certainly won’t name names here). It was all in the honorable name of cleansing-teacher illustrating to cleansing-student how the mass quantities of noxious gases, produced by waste accumulation in the gut, permeate the porous material of the skeleton and rise into the equally porous bone of the skull.
Most people don’t think of the bones and skull (and teeth for that matter) as highly-porous recipients of retained waste matter and the byproducts that develop from that retained waste, but they absolutely are.
The copious quantities of gas produced in the gut expand into the bones, causing the bone-matter to expand. As an added insult, the infiltrated bone matter becomes steadily weakened as the acidic gas eats away at it. The acidic noxious gasses displace the tightly, evenly-knitted ‘fabric’ of the healthy bone leading to weak bones (osteoporosis). This by the way is what happens to the body’s tissues at-large as retained waste is constantly permeating the extremely porous tissues of the body (making the tissues weak and slack). This is a major source of the rapid cosmetic deterioration that most people think is simply inevitable (it’s not merely inevitable at all).
It was by way of Gil’s powerful illustration of the ‘befores’ and ‘afters’ of these well-known modern day male actors which he identified as classic examples of this cause-effect scenario that enabled me to firmly and forever grasp one of the most essential understandings at the heart of tissue cleansing: warm gas rises in the body just as it does outside the body. The gas from the gut, in an attempt to find an exit by moving upward, becomes trapped in the skull, making for a real and literal ‘air-head’ situation. The retained waste matter is only half of it. It’s the retained waste AND the byproducts (noxious gases, bacteria, fungus, parasites, etc.) that cause the trouble and must be shown the way out.
But gas is invisible and harmeless…isn’t it?
While it may be invisible, noxious gas takes up an enormous amount of space. When it permeates human tissue it creates a lot of expansion (undermining the vacuum/empty space condition you want to have in the body). This becomes unquestionably evident in the wake of successful tissue cleansing. Here’s how you can tell: when tons of this carbonic gas is released, one of the the most common responses come from women who formerly believed they were designed to have wide hips and/or shoulders. “I always just thought I was big boned,” they proclaim, “But I’m not really!” The big bones and the expanded girth was largely due to ‘invisible’ (and virtually weightless, might I add) gas pressure. Not so invisible after all, ‘eh?
A successful deep-tissue-cleanser can drop many sizes just due just to releasing a great deal of the trapped gas in the skeletal/muscular system alone! Furthermore, you can shrink significantly (horizontally, not vertically, lol) and yet not always see a huge difference in your weight on the scale. Now you know why.
More importantly, the integrity that is restored to the bone when the noxious gas exits results in a kind of bone renaissance! This integrity is restored throughout as well..skin tightens up like a teenager’s and becomes enviably toned. Your internal organs will let you know that their faculties are re-invigorated as well!
I can assure you, the dedicated tissue cleanser doesn’t lose a single moment fretting over the possibility of osteoporosis, organ weakness or droopy skin setting in with age. They know it is only by way of the entropic harbingers that the fortitude of their cells and tissues can be diminished (and they know how to keep those entropic interlopers at bay). As I always say, “It’s not the number of times we go around the sun that ages us but rather what we accumulate as we go around the sun.”
Try the skull expansion observation exercise yourself: just look at the difference between anyone you know (yes, you are also fair game ;)) and compare the head shape of their youth to its current shape. Why has the skull shape morphed so dramatically (again, including the jaw, cheek bones and forehead which also disintegrate within from the noxious gas eating away at it)? It’s simply the hot, noxious gas from the intestine rising and expanding into the porous material that is causing this. Now that you know, you’re empowered to prevent it (should you desire to).
So you see, noxious gases are not just a cosmetic inconvenience – carbon, nitrogen, methane and volatile sulfur permeate the brain tissue matter and we all know what happens when integrity is lost in the brain matter – the heartbreaking symptoms of senility, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease result. Granted, gas pressure is only one contributing factor to these illnesses; however, it is a significant one. Other major contributing factors are heavy metal accumulation in the body absorbing in the brain matter, radiation exposure and, naturally the ramifications of a lifetime of stress and disconnection with the network of life (but N.B. these factors also cause noxious gas to proliferate because the noxious gas is a byproduct of the entropy cycle that is caused by those factors listed above). Typically, these cofactors all operate in concert given the modern way of life. Where you find one, you’ll typically find them all.
Gil had a term for the pre-gassed-up-skull (the a.k.a. the ‘before’). He called it, ‘kid head.’ Kid head is that tight, cute round head that kids have before they saturate their tissues in waste that ferments and putrefies releasing copious quantities of noxious carbon, methane and nitrogen into the bones/skull. The same could be said of ‘kid skin’ and ‘kid frame’ – its not a lack of maturity or retarding of natural growth I’m suggesting – not remotely, please don’t misunderstand me. Rather, It’s an absence of the accumulation and byproducts of accumulation from misguided consumption perpetuated over years and decades. Look at the Bushmen, the Hunza’s, the native American Indians and so many other original peoples and you will find ‘kid head,’ ‘kid skin,’ and ‘kid frames’ in the elders of untold age.
Why? Because, so long as they were not eating too many animal products (which will cause a great deal of fermentation in an intestine as long as the human one), these ‘original people’ did not eat sugars and starches and hybridized fruits that turn the otherwise calm, tight, high-integrity human body into a chaos of putrefactive disorder. Wild foods have a far lesser inclination to have this effect, particularly when consumed as part of lifestyle rooted in the network of living energy.
When you see an example of pristine, healthy youth (this becoming rarer every day), you are looking at a being that has not yet corrupted his or her body with so much retained waste matter. Remember that corrupt is synonymous with rot and the noxious gasses are part of the rotting process.
To redisover your youth, you need only remove that accumulation and it’s associated gas pressure (or at the very least, you need only begin the process and watch yourself morph pleasantly in that direction both inside and out as you go deeper, dredging up that which is better off out).
People have been conditioned to focus on weight loss and to apply the ‘latest, greatest’ cosmetic tools to create the illusion of restored youth; meanwhile, it can be so much more honest and simple than that. It simply comes down to removing the retained waste and the gas pressure developing from it. The gas makes you far larger than you are (oh, this by the way goes for guys who are consuming all the “gym food” substances designed to help them bulk up and ‘get big,’ namely, the soy protein isolate and whey protein based foods and shakes.). No one will argue that it makes them larger, but gas pressure is a big part of that increased size, which also, by the way, makes them feel more aggressive and less at ease which can be a great big detour for a man who is otherwise seeking a strong sense of balance, happiness and inspired, creative direction in life.
The hot, non-aerated environment is the condition of our body. We cannot change that (nor would we want to as it works very nicely so long as sugars, starches, fleshes, oils, chemicals, radiation and heavy metals don’t vie for that self same space that is not designed for such things.
You would not want your food to sit in a hot, wet, unventilated room all day long in a zip lock bag, would you? If you were to undertake an experiment as such, would not be surprised to come back several days later to open that zip lock bag and recoil from the the stench therein and multiple forms of bacteria and parasites growing out of the food? The stench is the noxious gasses and the pathogens themselves growing in the putrefactive waste are releasing yet another generation of noxious gases to boot.
Why is it that we think this somehow doesn’t occur in exactly the same way inside the even warmer, unventilated, more moist internal conditions of the miraculous human body. There is nothing wrong with the way our bodies are designed but much misguided with regard to what we think should be copacetic with those conditions (but simply are not). And yet, it remains taboo to talk too much about it, as if it is somehow better to pretend that the putrafaction isn’t really actually occurring. It’s happening alright and, I’m sorry to say, it’s going to your head (it’s a law of gas and heat). Don’t believe me? Just take a look around.
I’ve always loved the Biblical admonition, “Be ye wise as serpents and harmless as doves.” I would say likewise, “Be ye mature as the great elders and noxious-gas-free as the rejoicing, agile child.” This is possible and you have the power to turn the dial up on your ability to access this state at anytime.
