This does not mean turning back the hands of time; it does not refer to turning back the clock. It emphasizes the removal of some of the effects of poor living habits that have accumulated over time and had an adverse effect upon the health and life of the organism.

But it is important to appreciate that it is the water dropping on the stone that wears it away and not the time.
