"Health is the first wealth."
A meaningful life is a purposeful in one. A vital part of this process is to learn how to maintain our health and wellbeing. In this discussion we shall focus on ways we can tap into and manage our vital energy, Qi, to maintain our health so that we can fulfil this purpose.
Chinese medicine is abundant with simple, practical, and effective methods for self-care.
Over nearly three decades I have been blessed with the unique privilege of studying the medical arts and caring for and people from all stages and walks of life. I have observed that we all have an abundant potential for radiant health and deep healing. With a little guidance and encouragement we can do a lot to help ourselves recover from illness and maintain our health.
The foundations for effective recovery and lasting health is surprisingly simple. These are breathing, eating, and resting. This simple self-care formula appears to be increasingly difficult to achieve in today's world. No matter what types of medication or therapy we engage in it's not easy to make a satisfactory recovery if these foundations are not in place. If you get them right then you are very likely to recover well and enjoy lasting health.
The first step is to become more attuned to who you are, how you act, and what your strengths and health challenges are. There are many ways to achieve this. A well established and versatile method the use of system of the Five Elements in Chinese Medicine. This system represents the forces of change and adaptation within the microcosm and in the macrocosm. With this awareness you will be empowered to make clear choices of what foods and lifestyle activities are most suited to you and your circumstances.
For these reasons I developed a programme called Care for Your Qi. It will enable you to recover from illness as well as to nurture wellbeing. This integrates practical methods for helping you to breathe, eat and rest more effectively.
