Not just living longer, but living longer and better

I’m a fan of the human body and the study of all its parts — how together the parts create a living being and how caring for these parts leads to live a long, healthy, pain-free life. 

The more I learn and study the microscopic elements of our existence, the more mysterious the answer to my guiding question, “How do I maintain and active, healthy, pain-free long life?” becomes.

To look at the human body from a cellular level means uncovering the reality that this is a far deeper, vast way of looking at life. It reveals the hidden workings, the unknown elements of what makes a cell stable could also shed light on how our own bodies — as a dynamic, adaptable, ever changing structure — thrives and sustains an efficient existence.

MELT is not only a method, it’s a way to educate people on how to live a healthier, more conscious way of living.

It shares missing links to why dieting and exercise are not the only two controls you can manage to stay healthier in a world filled with increased stress, toxins, and business/financial/social demands. In fact, there are other considerations that can be even more valuable and certainly, for many, an easier place to start living a healthy, pain-free life. Besides, it’s a fact: Lots of people eat right and exercise and still have pain.

Here’s what’s missing

The average American doesn’t have time or money to spare on alternative therapies and products to help keep them looking and feeling young, healthy, and pain-free. However, only when a person is truly suffering from the effects of their daily life, repetition, habits, and aging do they consider pursuing remedies. Their first turn is often times a visit to the doctor’s office, which usually ends up in obtaining medication. However, many common symptoms from joint aches to digestive and sleep issues can be reduced and even eliminated through learning more about how our body stays efficient and stable all the way down to the cellular level.

The problem with cellular science is, well, it’s complex. It’s full of propositions and ideas and, for every scientific “fact” that can quite frequently be proven incorrect months, years, or even decades after the evidence was revealed. That’s what I love about science. It challenges you to stay up to date with your learning and allows someone like me to keep sharing what I keep on learning.

learning

If you really want to know an answer to something, you have to keep asking questions and keep learning.

I’ve quickly learned, if you really want to know an answer to something, you have to keep asking questions and keep learning. If you stop learning, you can’t become an expert at anything. I read and ponder daily to learn and consider other ways to look at things I either think I already know well, or things I want to know about.

I didn’t set out to look for a deeper meaning of life when I started studying cells, molecules, and the nervous system. However, there are days where I feel I’ve stumbled upon ideas that make me more aware of how precious and awesome life really is and the fact that it is possible to help your body live a more efficient, fun, enjoyable existence.

A doorway to longevity

When you look at the human body and its potential to thrive and remain efficient from a microscopic level, it creates infinite ways to understand life. MELT becomes a doorway to new realities of longevity. I read somewhere that in earlier centuries looking through microscopes and telescopes was forbidden to layman so they wouldn’t alter the reality that the nobleman considered.

Isn’t that intriguing? Keep people in the dark so only the rich and smart folk get out alive when the shit hits the fan. I’m not super smart and I’m not noble but I am curious and I’m exposing all the complexities of living in the most simplified ways I can. If I lived in an earlier century I’d be put in jail for asking too many questions – or burned at the stake for thinking out of the box!

What I’ve learned from looking at the body in a microscopic way is that there is an entire anthropologic viewpoint that is only randomly considered. If anthropology is simply the study of human cultures and origins, then neurofascial anthropology studies the origin and forms of our cells, molecules, and connections in each individual human body and considers how we all are connected on a molecular level. Did I just come up with a title for myself? I very well could be the first neurofascial anthropologist. Hilarious.

Support systems are powerful

With MELT, I propose that our body’s cellular and neurological systems, together the neurofascial system provides the interior architecture, the scaffolding, thus the environmental mapping upon which our other systems and cells function efficiently within and because of. Thus, if this environment is unstable, if it loses its ability to support, protect, stabilize and create an efficient communication highway, all other systems will be compromised.

I have this fundamental idea that every human body wants to function as efficiently as possible. To do this daily, as long as we shall live, the human body is adaptable, malleable, and takes into consideration its environments, both the internal one and the one that we consciously choose to live in. More simply put it’s my internal body balancing with the outside world.

I believe that 98 percent of how the body manages to sustain efficiency is autonomic. Regardless if we are active, sedentary, young or old, consciously living a healthy life or not, the body is trying to keep itself alive and functioning as well as it can. Even a heroine addicts body is trying to sustain the life of that person even when that person is doing something that could kill itself.

Unlocking mental constraints

I believe that just as vast as the universe, just as complex and with just as much unchartered territory, the human body and learning how to live in it is a part mystery, part belief, part mind over matter.

It’s important to recognize that each person may judge themselves and others unconsciously. We all vary on defining our boundaries. The way one person defines the environment they exist in may be entirely different than the person sitting right next to them. Our cells do the same. Our cells each have different jobs, and many different shapes and lifespan yet they all live in the same exact environment – the human body.

Consider that one drop of blood contains 3 million red blood cells, 5,000 white, and the fact that science even knows this is only known because technology and science has exponentially grown in the past 100 years.

There is an entire system of the body that is only in the past two decades really being discussed, defined, studied, and considered relevant in our longevity and overall good health. This global system is found everywhere in the body and, if you removed every other cell in the body, you would still see the shape and form of the body as a whole as well as every organ and structure within. Connective tissue provides the map of the living body. Consider it the outline of every element of your body from skin to bone.

I want to share as much cellular science as I can and simplify it down to a level that any person, at any age, with any educational level can grasp. We can’t rely on our health care system to keep us healthy and well for a long lifetime. Granted, medicine has helped us live longer, but that doesn’t mean we are living longer, better.

I’ve got more to say on this topic. For today, consider clicking through our site and finding a MELT instructor near you, or buy the book and learn how you can help your body live better by adding this simple self-treatment technique to your life. It takes 10 minutes a day to feel a change for the better.
