Exploring Traditional Chinese Medicine

As more and more people seek greater health and alternatives to drug therapies, Traditional Chinese Medicine has experienced a resurgence of popularity. TCM focuses on several approaches to staying healthy, aging well, and preventing disease. These include acupuncture, acupressure, Qigong, classical herbal therapy, eating well and monitoring psychological or emotional health.

From the website www.tcmworld.org we read: TCM has a variety of natural healing methods that can help you resolve your health issues. These healing forms are ancient and have been used effectively–without harmful side effects–for thousands of years. These modalities reflect Chinese insight and ingenuity in creating methods that promote healing in specific ways.

Each and every TCM modality is based on Qi. You were born with a self-healing ability, and through the use of a particular healing form, TCM practitioners recharge that self-healing function in your body. These modalities can increase and balance your Qi, giving your body and being the healing support it needs to regain its healthy function.

Practicing qi gong is one of the easiest and most effective ways to increase your health and energy.

Literally meaning “energy work,” Qigong breaks down energy blockages and promotes the free flow of energy throughout your body’s meridian system, the invisible pathways through which Qi moves and that connect everything in your body.

Consistent Qigong practice increases and balances your body’s Qi. Working directly on your body’s meridian system–your energy body–it stimulates and nourishes the internal organs, making the energetic communication between them more efficient. And by increasing the effectiveness of all body systems, Qigong helps conserve Qi. These qualities are important to your health because TCM theory says that in order to have good health you must have sufficient Qi that flows freely throughout your body and your internal organs must function together in harmony.

| by William A. Tiller, Ph D

Self-Healing Exercises for Weak Eyes by William A. Tiller, PhD In the early 1970’s, I began to wear glasses for reading and for driving my car and I didn’t like the inconvenience. About the same time, an MD friend told me about an experiment conducted in China on children with vision problems who needed to wear strong glasses to see and read effectively. They were told to massage certain acupuncture points around the eyes as these relaxed the tensions in the eye muscles. After a few months of doing these exercises daily…

Physiologically, as we all know, it is the key organ involved in purifying the blood, eliminating toxins from the body by means of urination. It is also, as is often forgotten, the rejuvenating recycling source of the body…Thanks to thousands of years of experience, Chinese Medicine has developed the concept of strengthening kidneys.
