Leonardo da Vinci Kept His Dirty Little Secret Hidden For Centuries… Until Today

At the time of his death in 1519, Leonardo had filled over 7,000 bulky journals with his exceptionally detailed drawings of the human body.

After his death, these journals were mysteriously either lost or stolen, and they remained that way for hundreds of years.

It wasn’t until 1690, when Leonardo’s artwork was becoming famous, that these journals turned up in Britain, but even then no one knew of the gold they contained.

From 1690, they were held in the Royal Collection in London, where they would lay unread unappreciated and unpublished for hundreds of years.

Until now.

Eventually, historians began to go through these journals one by one. And when they found this page and this drawing, they wouldn’t believe what they found.

You see…

Leonardo Discovered Something I Call

“Rapid Spinal Degeneration”

That’s right, “Rapid Spinal Degeneration” is the true cause of your low back pain.

But what does that actually mean?

Let’s look again at this image found in da Vinci’s journal. You’ll see two side-by-side images of the human spine.

Notice how both spinal columns are very different shapes.

One of these spines has what we call an “S-curve” while the other has a “J-curve”.

Let’s look first at the “S-curve”.

An “S-curved” spine is one which has undergone rapid spinal decay. In my clinic, I refer to this as “Grandma Spine”.

The S-shape is a clear sign a person has some type of back pain, or is at risk of herniating a disc, having trapped nerve damage or sciatic pain.

Then we have the “J-curve”.

In my clinic, I call this “Athletic Spine” as it is a spinal column with excellent structural integrity, similar to that of an athlete.

You’ll notice the back is almost flat until the bottom where it curves at the perfect angle.

Fascinatingly, there are many indigenous tribes where every member of the tribe has a J-curved spine

… In these tribes, which can be found in the mountains of Ecuador, tiny fishing towns in Portugal or remote villages in West Africa… back pain is non-existent!

Even if we look at the spines from fossilized bodies, or look at statues from Ancient Greece, we see these J-curved spines everywhere.

So, the question is, how does a perfectly healthy J-curved spine (which we’re all born with) turn into a nasty, crooked, painful S-curved spine?

Caffeine: how our health is affected?

Caffeine is a stimulant found in some plants, dating back to 2700 BC when the first tea in history was made. Coffee was discovered long afterward when an Ethiopian shepherd discovered that his animals became more active when they drank coffee. Today, nearly 80% of people in the world consume caffeinated beverages every day, and caffeine works by stimulating the nervous system and brain.

Caffeine: how our health is affected?

 

Food sources of caffeine

Caffeine is found naturally in the leaves, fruits or seeds of more than 60 plants in the world. It is also manufactured and added to certain foods, beverages, and medicines.

 
  • *Coffee: The medium-sized cup of ground and roasted coffee contains approximately 85 mg of caffeine.
  • *Tea: Dried tea leaves contain more caffeine than roasted and ground coffee, but when fermented, the amount of caffeine in it becomes less than the amount found in coffee. Every cup of tea contains 20-80 mg of caffeine. By its type.
  • *Chocolate: Cocoa seeds naturally contain caffeine, so anything made from these seeds contains caffeine. It is worth mentioning that the higher the concentration of cocoa in chocolate the greater the amount of caffeine in it, where 28 grams of dark chocolate, which consists of 70% cocoa Contains 20 mg of caffeine, but if the concentration of cocoa in the range of 45%, the amount of caffeine in it decreases to 11 mg.
  • *Soft drinks: One serving, or about 200 milliliters of these drinks, contains an amount of caffeine ranging between 30-60 mg, and the Food and Drug Administration pointed out that the dark color soft drinks contain the largest amount of caffeine compared to others.
  • *Energy drinks: The amount of caffeine in these drinks varies depending on the type, but it can be said that one serving or the equivalent of 200 ml of these drinks provide the body with about 75 mg of caffeine, but it should be noted that there are some energy drinks that contain Twice that amount.
  • *Protein Bars: Some of the ingredients can contain chocolate and coffee, so they may contain caffeine. A person can read the food label before buying it to see how much caffeine it contains.
  • *Sweetened dairy products: Chocolate or coffee can be added to some yogurt, ice cream, or other dairy products to give it a flavor,
  • *Other sources: There are some over-the-counter medicines that contain caffeine, and there are some types of candy, chewing gum, and other foods that can contain the amount of caffeine.

The benefits of caffeine

Caffeine provides many health benefits for the body, but it should be noted that some still need more studies to confirm and the most important benefits:

Help to lose weight: caffeinated drinks reduce appetite and desire to eat, as it stimulates the body to produce heat and energy when digesting food, but these benefits are uncertain.

Vigilance: A dose of caffeine equal to 75 mg increases attention, concentration, and alertness in humans, and increasing the dose to between 160-600 mg increases the alertness of the brain, speed of reaction, and also increases memory.

Boosting athletic performance: Experts note that caffeine increases exercise performance in endurance exercises and reduces the effort needed to do it, but these benefits have a short-term effect.

Stimulating brain function: Studies have shown that drinking coffee stimulates thinking skills and reduces mental degeneration associated with aging because coffee contains antioxidant polyphenols and contains caffeine that affects adenosine neurotransmitter receptors.

Reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease: Studies have found that people who drank coffee throughout their lifetime were less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease, and people who drank large quantities of coffee were less likely to develop Alzheimer’s.

Caffeine damage

In spite of the many benefits of caffeine, when over-consumed it produces a lot of damage.

  • *Exposure to anxiety and stress,
  • * Mood intensity. Suffering from insomnia.
  • Gastrointestinal problems such as gastroesophageal reflux disease.
  • * Suffering from nausea, diarrhea.
  • * Caffeine addiction.
  • *high blood pressure. Acceleration of the heart muscles.
