In the world of Health and Wellness, we have four spokes that hold together the wheel of Vitality. The are the critical elements that constitute one’s lifestyle. Each of them have to be balanced in their own right and all of them need to feed into each-other in order to attain the ultimate goal of good health.
The first of these spokes is Diet. We literally are what we eat. The food we intake literally becomes the makeup of our body and the energy we run off of. A balanced diet of organic and locally grown ingredients brings vibrant energy and clean fuel to the cells. In Chinese medicine we derive out Gu Qi (Food Qi) from our diet and this, mixed with the air we breathe constitutes the foundation of our energy body. Qi Gong is excellent for the circulation of breath. The digestive organs assimilate the food we eat and produce usable energy for the body and brain- energy we need to run our daily lives. An abundance of energy can be derived from keeping this system efficient and eating quality foods in small quantities.
