What ideas about aging need to be abandoned? adopted?
a new definition: aging
Babies are 70- 83% water.
…Most adults are around 60% water…
Aging can be considered a process of drying out.
There's a lot beyond drinking water that we can do to stay physiologically lubricated & the implications are astounding! (Though we're excited for the day when this kind of information is common knowledge.)
The stiffness, crackles, aches & pains that many of us consider "a natural part of aging" are actually signs that our fascia is drying out.
Fascia is a connective tissue that wraps, contains & connects every other tissue in our body. It’s also a sensory organ.
"The good news is that a large proportion of fascia is a type of liquid crystal—it’s water—so when we move in specific ways, water is squeezed back into the dried out tissues."
These are 80-93 year olds who have kept their fascia healthy. (And no, it’s not just good genes.)
