Anyone who has seen images from China of masses of people slowly moving in choreographed, dancelike routines is familiar with the beautiful,
health-giving art of Tai Chi. The fact that more than 100 million people practice Tai Chi around the
world is a testament to its widely acknowledged health benefits.
Studies have concluded that practicing Tai Chi for thirty minutes, three times a week, for at least three months can slow bone loss in osteoporosis,
lower blood pressure, lessen anxiety, improve sleep, increase functional mobility and balance, enhance
circulation, and improve one’s cholesterol profile. Tai Chi is a gentle exercise and can be performed by people of any age to
help with your health and natural healing.
Foods are an integral part of health and medicine in Chinese culture. Nutritional therapy is a vital part of the Chinese medical model, and each food is seen to have a temperature, specific organs that
it affects and healing properties making the art of food therapy an important aspect of Chinese medicine.
Q:What can I do to reduce my appetite to enable me to lose weight? I have to stay clear of estrogen because I have had DCIS (Ductal Carcinoma in Situ). Is there an herb I can take or regiment I can follow?
A: You are correct; you should avoid estrogen and estriol precursor products and foods to prevent reoccurrence of DCIS. I am assuming it is currently in remission.
As for the appetite, the best recommendation I can make is to contact a licensed acupuncturist who
can assist with a NADA (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) protocol for appetite
