Ways to improve immune system (LOHAS Meridian Exercise)

16 Feb 2012

Recently, there are a few friends of mine, (and their friends as well), were complaining having sore throat, fever and cough.  Some were even down with runny nose.  Some of them have to be on sick leave for almost a week.

Imagine the lost of productivity, fun and enjoyment because of the infection.

Besides drinking water, what other ways can help us to avoid being hit by those unwanted (avoidable) situation is taking pear or watermelon (not suitable for people with weak stomach) when we start to have dry throat or  feeling”heaty”.  Prevention is always better than cure, isn’t?

For the past 8 years, I’ve not been taking such medication because I hardly fell sick. Even if I am sick, I recover within 2 days without medication.  I practised the above method.

Another thing that helps me very much is the LOHAS Meridian Exercises.

LOHAS Meridian Exercises is the essence of LOHAS Meridian Self-Therapy teaching.  It summarized the important teaching into 5~10 min actions.

We designed it with initial intention to help people improve Qi & Blood circulation through a FUN way.

However, as more and more people practice it, they came back to us with feedback such as improvement on digestive system, improve immune system, relieve aches and pain, improve bowel movement, overweight and underweight, high blood pressure, knee joint problem.

For example, there is a corporate trainer, Betty, she has been spending $80+ per month on an US health supplement to improve her bowel movement.  After practicing the LOHAS Meridian Exercise, she totally cut down on that supplement.  On top of that, she can even improve her quality of sleep and start her day with more energy.

Imagine, $80+ per months means almost $1000 saving a year!

Definitely that $1000 can be put into other good use, like travel, gift for one-self or family or simply more saving.

That is the reason we are regularly advocating people to practise LOHAS Meridian Exercise, help people be healthy ans save lots of money.

The beautiful part is, LOHAS Meridian Exercise is simple and easy to learn and yet very useful and effective.

Why LOHAS Meridian Exercises works because it improve the Qi & Blood circulation and thus enhances our internal organs. It focus on many important points of our body to strengthen our meridian.

We designed the movement and sequence such that a 5~10 min LOHAS Meridian Exercise is almost equivalent to 20 min brisk walking.  On top of that, it enhance the flexibility of our joints.

Out motto, ” 5 min a day, happy and healthy always”<

Daily slices of ginger can do wonders

20 Oct 2011

Recently, there is a research article suggesting daily dose of ginger may play a role in reducing colon cancer risk.

Ginger - Food that healsThe University of Michigan Medical School research team had done experiment on 30 healthy adults.  On a random selection basis, some of the adults were given daily intake of 2g of ginger per day versus the control group just took a normal placebo powder (as comparison).

After 28 days, the adults in the daily ginger intake group appeared to have shown sign of reduction of inflammatory in colon.  While the research is still only in its phase II, it suggested that ginger could be explored further for people with higher risk of colon cancer.  Ginger seems to be tolerable and safe. In the article, it suggested that further investigation in people at high risk for Colorectal Cancer (CRC) seems warranted.  So, if you are person who do not really enjoy  ginger, this may be a good  reason for you to try to.

In fact, in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), ginger is a very useful daily food that can serve as medicine as well as food.

In our recent Meridian Massage Graduate gathering, I shared with our graduate this Chinese quote, “男人不可百日无姜” (which literally translated to “a man cannot afford not to take ginger for 100 days”), says a lot about the importance of ginger.

Ginger provides “yang” (阳) energy to the body, thus warm our body.  Some of the healing properties of gingers include relieve cold, flu and motion sickness, warm our body, improve blood circulation and digestion.  It is also useful to relieve aches and pains, as mentioned in the above research that ginger has anti-inflammatory properties.

Even though University of Michigan Medical School mentioned that ginger is considered safe and tolerable.  However, in TCM, human body can be classified into different body constitution.   There are groups of people should take ginger in moderation while the others should take more.  Typically, people with “warm” body type should not over eat ginger.

Meridian Massage Workshop - 5 elementsThat is the reason in LOHAS Meridian Comprehensive workshop, we teach about the 5 elements of body, daily food that nourishes our body type and LOHAS Meridian Hand Techniques that enhance your body constitution.  Each of our body is different and unique.  It is imperative to understand our body and take care accordingly.

Ginger can be useful for external application too.  For people always having cold hand and feet, you can try to soak your feet with warm water mixed with ginger water.   Another useful area would be relieving knee and ankle pain.

Next time, when you see ginger in your dishes, try to enjoy them.

Slow and Steady win the race

Recently, I have a Ultimate Slimming Intensive workshop participant managed to lose 4kg within a month.

In order to see faster result, he tried to jog over the weekend.

Unfortunately, he injured his leg and he had to stay at home for two days.

Guess what happened? He was not able to move around (more sedentary) and

he was bored at home and start to eat more.

Sound familiar?

This is exactly what we discussed on Revelation #2 before we talked about

Four Golden Principle.

I am glad that he managed to lose 4kg within a month just following the simple techniques – Four Golden Principle.

Unfortunately, if he remember what I mentioned in the Kaizen Concept, he probably wouldn’t injure himself.
