Improve Your Immune System:


How can Taiji help us to improve our Immune System?

  1. My teacher used to say that to be healthy you can do 20 minutes of exercise or take a pill, your choice.

  2. Good nutrition, getting enough sleep and getting a proper exercise program in place is the first step to improving your immune system.

  3. Taiji gives you the ability to lessen the effects of an illness and to build up your stamina by improving your ability to ward off any outside force that tries to compromise your health.

  4. Taiji has Qigong in its movements, but Qigong does not have Taiji in its movements.

  5. Learning to breathe properly from your lower abdomen (Dantien) is a learned response that we entertain every time we breathe Life into our lungs, course blood through our veins and arteries, and eliminate the toxic waste from our bodies. A strong immune system is never achieved from one action, but rather it is a system of Life that finds harmony in Nature for all living beings, hence the study and enjoyment of Taiji.
