Armed to the Teeth
Anger energizes the arms and jaw.
“He’s heavily armed.”
“He’s in the Army.”
“He’s armed to the teeth.”
“He’s shouldering arms.”
“He’s got a tight jaw and a jaw jut.”
“Anger management” issues can destroy your teeth.
Teeth grinding and jaw clenching at night is a common way to diffuse anger, but it’s hard on the teeth.
Bruxism, a word first used in 1932, means “unconsciously grinding the teeth.”
“He’s rabid with anger.” A rabid animal BITES.
Remember Mike Tyson biting off Evander Holyfield’s ear in 1997?

Consider a man who was in a wheelchair for eight years.
Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) got him to take his first steps after all that time.
Then this man crashed his hand-controlled car, and couldn’t show up at Adano’s Karma Klinic for further sessions.
According to Adano …
“He crashed while driving to his grandmother’s house. He wanted to strangle her, so he crashed his arm so I couldn’t work with him anymore.”
Wanting to strangle his grandmother was what landed him in a wheelchair in the first place.
It was a case of disarmament without directly involving the arms.
Twisting a towel releases tension in the arms.
The wrists are a common “blocking point.”
I experimented with Reflex Supersets while working out at Gold’s Gym.
I lightly exercise my legs immediately before heavily exercising my arms.
And I lightly exercised my arms immediately before heavily exercising my legs.
Arms — reaching for the stars — are nourished by Growth Zone One foods.
Legs — standing one’s ground — are nourished by Growth Zone Three foods.
Casey Kasem’s signature sign-off was …
“Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.”
