This blog will guide you to achieving a happy, healthy and strong you—using my degrees in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Clinical Exercise Physiology, and more than 30 years of practicing Tai Chi, Qigong and Chinese martial arts. My goal is to present the Chinese medical framework for health and healing of the body and mind in a simple, clear and easily acceptable way, so that you can easily follow.
The purpose of my blog is to contribute to improving your daily overall health and well-being, and also, help bridge the gap between modern medical science and TCM. I will draw on my own clinical and research experience, as well as recent scientific studies, individual case studies, personal training and life experience—linking them to classical Chinese medical texts as well as culture, philosophy and inspiration.
Evidence is growing in the 21st century on the benefits of mind-body medicine interventions such as meditation, prayer, creative outlets, and mindful physical activities like yoga, Tai Chi and Qigong in managing stress, emotional distress and mental anxiety. Research is more and more focusing on not only the power of negative emotions, but also of positive emotions on our physical well-being, long-term health, and longevity.
Chinese medicine takes into consideration the body, mind and spirit, and offers us a holistic picture in which to understand the connection of our emotions and mental activities to our body and physical health. More specifically, the TCM meridian system where Qi (energy) flows gives us a map of these connections, which is used in acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, massage, and therapeutic Qigong.
Meridians can help us to know what types of food, exercise and lifestyle changes we need to boost our energy and balance our life—empowering us to make better choices for prevention and treatment. Furthermore, meridians show us blockages in the Qi flow of the body, which can help us to better understand the pathology of illnesses, and thus, also shed light on the root causes in diagnosis.
Now more than ever, it’s time for Chinese medicine.
