Gaining Weight From Shock (Trauma)
“I gained thirty pounds in a month. I started to gain weight right after I fell down the stairs,” a woman told me.
She had injured her right hip in the fall (a female trauma).
The accident happened while her son and her new daughter-in-law were on their honeymoon.
She resented her new daughter-in-law, and swelled up in self-defense.
Aging is often blamed for weight gain, but the actual culprit is SHOCK (or a series of mini-shocks accumulated over the years).
Shock causes hyperventilation (respiratory alkalosis through the loss of carbon dioxide), overloading the body with lactic acid … and blowing it up like a balloon in the process.
Pneumatic pressure drives hydraulic pressure, and not the other way around.
A doctor checks the blood pressure in arteries and veins, but not the air pressure in the lungs.
84 percent of fat is exhaled as carbon dioxide.
16 percent of fat is excreted as water.

The grave bore the following epitaph …
