Growing older doesn't have to mean growing worse. Much of what we associate with the wear-and-tear of aging is bodily misuse and maladaption, which can be avoided and reversed with Clinical Somatics, for most people in less than five-minutes per day.
Aging has come to be thought of a disease process in it’s own right. We consider the act of simply living on the planet as it’s own pathogen that results in our decline. While the many processes we think of as aging are obviously complex and not entirely understood, we assume “aging" as default cause almost anytime someone has musculoskeletal problems, aches, pains, or loss of energy and function. This is the nature of a “myth”: A myth is a story that may or not be true, but we accept it as legitimate and use it as an explanation for why certain things are the way they are. Many myths — from the Greek and Roman gods’ anger as an explanation for thunder to the earth being flat — have long since been both disproven and rejected by our culture as both inaccurate and primitive. However, of the most persistent, and most destructive, myths that still plagues is the myth of aging.
When someone aches or doesn’t have the same energy for sports on the weekend, and they are over the age of 30, we say it’s about them starting to “go down hill”. When someone develops chronic pain or joint problems over a certain age, we don’t look for an underlying cause that can be reversed or treated, but instead accept that it is a normal degenerative process and at best offer them ways to mask the pain. The list of things we blame on aging is both endless and utterly self-fulfilling.
