Health Is Not A Constant

Some of my Chinese medicine books mention a famous doctor of the Tang dynasty (618-907AD). His name was Sun Si Miao and he was a big advocate of preventative medicine. Sun Si Miao lived to 101 years of age so I guess he knew a thing or two about health.

One of his quotes goes something like this:

"Health is a constant, you must constantly secure it and guard against all disease."

How true. You may be healthy NOW but don't take it for granted - injury and illness can strike at any time. This means every day you should do something for your health. Get a good sleep, eat a healthy breakfast, meditate, go for a walk, have a good laugh - do SOMETHING each day for your health.

Prevention is the key and this is the basis of ALL traditional Chinese therapies, such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary therapy, exercise therapy and others.

While acupuncture and herbal medicine are professional therapies, the traditional Chinese way of health includes many self-help techniques you can easily learn and incorporate into your daily life to boost health and prevent injury and illness.

There are physical exercises for strength, stretching exercises for flexibility, breathing exercises for energy, massage techniques for pain, dietary tips and lots more.

See my main website for scores of individual exercises and self-help techniques and a range of holistic health and exercise programs on video.

As always any questions let me know, I'll be happy to help.


P.S. The 2 new programs - Lower Back Exercises and Self-Massage Techniques - are taking longer than usual. I'll be offering a special deal to make your wait worthwhile.
