Energy Refill

Life energy "Qi" maintains organ functions, repairs damages at cellular level, and keeps life going.

As we age, "Qi" energy weakens. As a result, we fell less energetic, easily get tired, and are prone to illness.

Can we refill the life energy? Yes. Tai Chi, QiGong, and JingLuo Exercise are effective ways to refill the life energy while minimizing the energy loss and maximizing the life functions.

Energy refill work needs daily efforts. We eat food and drink water every day. We breath 24 hours a day. And we do all kinds of exercises. However, all these are not enough. We need to do more. We need to be conscious that we are in a race against aging. If we want to slow down the aging process, we need to do more!

When I say "more", I mean more efforts with less cost for more gain.

Those energy consuming exercises are no longer suitable for the seniors. What we need at this stage of life is the type of exercise that consumes less energy, no stress, while serves to gain more energy reserve. The ideal exercises for this age group are Tai Chi, QiGong and JingLuo Exercise.

Take Health in Your Own Hands

Healthy pH level of human blood is in a narrow range of 7.35-7.45. Alkaline food such as vegetables and fruits satisfy the healthy body pH, while meat, dairy, sugar, soda drinks, most refined processed food and cooked food are acidic. The polluted environment and stress in life and work also add acidic elements to our body. In today's world, many things are beyond our control. If you are not aware of this fact and taking actions accordingly, it is very difficult to avoid being sick.

However, you don't have to surrender to today's polluted world. You don't have to wait till you get sick. You can take your health in your own hands, and prevent illness to form. Even if you already have some illness, you can prevent the illness from getting worse.

Since I can't eat nine servings of fruits and veggies a day as needed by the body, I use two products--barley grass juice (BarleyLife) and alkaline water (Abova ORP Water). These convenient products satisfy my nutrition needs and give me good energy of the day. They are the best alkaline products available in the market today. They help me to off set the acidic elements in food and environment. I used to have liver and kidney problems, now I'm in the best status of my health.

If you have not yet taken any medication, try not to start one. If you are already under medication, try not to add one more pill. I strongly suggest you take your health in your own hands. You are responsible for your own health. Besides all the right things you are doing, I suggest you start taking barley grass juice and Abova alkaline water every day. They provide true healing naturally.

Alkaline Body Environment Prevents Cancer/Lymphoma

China Central Television leading news anchorman LUO Jing passed away on June 5, 2009 at age 48. A popular and likable broadcaster, he was diagnosed as lymphoma 9 months ago and was hospitalized to receive medical treatment. The doctors could not save his life.

No doubt the doctors did their best. But the current medical treatment for cancer is harmful to the patient’s immune system which is actually the only hope for recovery, especially for lymphoma. Somehow I believe Luo Jing may not even have a chance to try the alternative method to boost up the immune system.

However, cancer/lymphoma are preventable. Lymphoma can be easily overlooked among people 45-60 years old. Some of the early symptoms are simply feeling tired or having flue-like symptoms. Actually these are also the symptoms of acidic body environment which is the basic condition to form illness. By changing this condition, making the body environment alkaline we will be able to prevent cancer/lymphoma or all kind of illness to form.

How can we make our body environment alkaline? Human body has a narrow range pH level of 7.35-7.45 which is slightly alkaline. As we are facing fast pace and stressful work place, polluted environment, over chemical-used agriculture, overwhelmed electronic device, refined processed food, etc., they all make our body acidic. To restore the pH level to our natural balance, I suggested the following five steps in my 9/19/2008 blog:

1. Be happy (Sad tears are acidic and toxic)
2. Eat alkaline food as much as possible (vegetables and fruit are alkaline)
3. Drink alkaline juice: BarleyLife® and LeafGreens®
4. Drink alkaline water: ABOVA® ORP Water
5. Do Tai Chi and QiGong every day

If you have followed these steps, you probably already experienced being less stressful, more productive, happier, and have more energy.

We don’t have to be sick. We can prevent it. Even if the doctor told you that you have 6 months to live, or you have 50/50 chance, you can take control of your own health by changing your body environment alkaline.

Overall Wellbeing

Many chronic health problems develop over time. During the course of this development we have chance of getting sicker or getting better, depending on what we do.

Main elements that affect our health can be summarized as following:

- Immune system
- Mental strength
- Physical strength
- Nutrition
- Environment
- Lifestyle

Taking control of above elements with good understanding, and trying to improve in a steady and balanced way will lead us to a better health status.

When we go through physical checkup or screening exams, and experience doubtful or questionable reports, don’t panic, because panic will only serve to decrease your immune system defense, and bring down your mental and physical strength.

The best option is to go through above elements and check one by one. Find out the possible causing reasons, and make positive changes accordingly. Take physical checkup again after three months. If problem reports persist, seek for medical help. The chances are, in many cases, you are already on the way to improve. In that case, keep up the good work.

I found a simple solution to prevent and improve many health issues. Use Barley juice, powder of young barley leaves, as the basic food supplement. It quenches the thirst of our cells, and satisfies our basic nutrition needs. It helped myself since 1994. I truly believe this is a simple solution for an overall wellbeing.

Natural Form of Nutrition

In a commercial society as we live, the food industry would promote products that bring profit. Nowadays, you may find co-Q10, green tea, Omega 3 fatty acid, polyphenols, etc., whatever is hot, are being "added" to many products in the market.

As our human knowledge about nature is very limited, there are many things we cannot fully understand. We can break down a piece of tea leave and analyze its chemical components, but we cannot put those chemicals together and form a piece of tea leave!

What we really need are the natural forms of these beneficial properties that the nature provides, or the forms that are kept less tempered. We need nutrition supplements that can be fully absorbed and digested by the body.

If supplements are not fully absorbed and digested by the body, they may actually cause potential health problems, such as kidney stone or joint pain.

Get closer to nature. Get natural form of nutrition.

Natural Way of Healing

We don’t have to get sick. Our body is designed to heal itself. If you feel tired, or have pain here and there, don’t wait. It’s time to help yourself. All you need to do is to follow the natural way of healing.

Why Natural Way of Healing? I have my doctor to take care of me.

True. When you are sick, you have doctors to take care of you. However, why wait till you get sick when your internal organs get damaged? The body’s natural defense gives small signals when the health status is weakened. Feeling tired and having pain are the common signals. If you go to see a doctor at this time, most likely the tests will show normal, but you don’t feel well.

If we are not taking actions to improve the condition and allow the health to decline further, serious symptoms will occur. The damage will get into the internal organs. At this time, the test result will tell the doctor that you are sick of a named illness. The doctor will prescribe certain drugs to help you recover.

Do you have to wait till you are really sick? You don’t have to. You can take your health in your own hand, and enjoy a healthy and quality life up to 120 years old. Here is a simple solution through Natural Way of Healing.

 Breath deep 3 times a day 20 minutes each time (QiGong)
 Tai Chi at least 2 times a week, best do it every day
 Green barley juice (BarleyLife®) every morning to start your day
