If you are a person that takes good care of your vehicle you should do the same for your body. Your body is you’re your ultimate vehicle and has very similar functions as an automobile engine with systems which can correlate to each other. Your vehicle needs preventive maintenance, quality fuel, certain lubricants, fluids, and tune-ups. The human body needs similar resources to keep it fully functioning and to keep it healthy for a good quality of life. First let’s look at how both the human body and an automobile internal combustion engine work. The body needs oxygen. A vehicle engine needs oxygen. They both need fuel, lubrication temperature control, and they both produce waste materials. A vehicle discharges exhaust while the human body produces excrement and urine, which are both vital to a properly functioning body rhythm as a car engines’ precise timing is for a healthy exhaust.
The body’s fuel is food. The better one eats the more efficient the brain and body responds. Protein is what the body craves to keep a sufficient energy level. But the body also needs carbohydrates and fats, however not as much as people tend to consume. The one thing that is different from a vehicle and humans is fuel capacity for a vehicle is limited, but humans seem to want to over fill their bellies with more than they really need to function regular. Regular is a term used by medical professions to determine human waste frequency (bowels) and that means having bowel movements at least once or twice every day. Over eating bogs down the digestive system and may cause buildup in the intestinal track just as sludge can buildup in an engine if the oil is not changed regularly, and getting the fuel injection cleaned periodically is also important for smother performance. One of the things that can keep a body regular is fiber and staying well hydrated (drinking water).
One of the most important systems of a vehicle is the cooling system. The cooling system keeps the engine from overheating and damaging vital engine parts. Engines have a temperature gauges and humans have a hypothalamus which acts as a temperature control regulator for the body. The human body needs water and a vehicle needs coolant. Both are essential to keep from overheating. If the human body overheats it could be devastating to the brain and other vital organs. Thus, proper hydration is very important.
The body’s heart pumps blood to deliver nutrients in conjunction with the cardiovascular and circulatory systems, while the car engine pumps oil for lubrication also with a pump. Breathing oxygen is the lifeline for the body (Respiratory system) which pushes the blood to the heart to provide circulation which helps to lubricate joints and keep the body’s many parts functioning properly through the oxygenation process. Auto engines need a combination of oxygen, fuel, and spark, which is part of the electronic system, to fire-up the engine. Today’s vehicles have a computerized electronic system. The central nervous system is the electronic system of the human body and the brain is the computer.
The reality is both the automobile engine and the human body are very intricate vehicles and need special care. The problem is too many human vehicles are neglected and living sedentary lives. People are passing this trait on to their children and technology and convenience has slowed so many people down that breathing has become an after-thought and circulation is nearly at a standstill. If an automobile experienced a lack of oxygen it would not run well and with as much neglect as many bodies experience it’s time would be short lived.
