Ever notice that people who run all the time age FASTER than those who don’t.
If you look at many marathon runners in their mid-30’s, you’ll already see the “prune” look beginning to etch itself onto their faces. Why is this?
There are a couple reasons:
1. Many distance athletes believe, erroneously, that because they workout, they don’t need to take any sort of supplement that safeguards them against free radical damage. Show an endurance athlete a supplement loaded with antioxidants proven to reduce the risk of illness, including cancer and heart disease, and don’t be surprised if you hear, “I don’t need that stuff. I work out.”
Uh – duh. When you workout, your body cranks out MORE free radicals, not less.
Yes, you need to exercise to get the results you want – but to sweat and NOT supplement is a mistake. When you take super potent antioxidants like Pharmaceutical Grade Fish Oil as well as berries like elderberry,chokeberry, black currant and bilberry – you are insuring yourself against disease.
In China, the longest lived people eat abundantly from fruits, vegetables, meats, herbs – and green tea. Green tea is a mega potent antioxidant as well.
2. The other reason for the “prune” look – not to mention the ready-for-the-scrap-heap feeling inside the bodies of many distance runners is because, as the Chinese Taoists have taught, the exerciser is “cooking” his internal organs from over-exertion.
Cooking your organs?
It’s a scientific fact that some people are ‘warmer’ than others. Their hands and feet are warmer. They sweat easier. They need fewer clothes, and so on.
The above is not a bad thing.
However, when you over-exercise and have no method of cooling your body off, you do internal damage and it shows on your face.
High stress in the home and workplace also contribute to over-heating, too – so don’t think you’re off the hook if you don’t work out.
Key thing is you need to have a way to cool off internally. Supplementing with antioxidants helps – but the way you exercise helps a lot, too. If you exercise in such a way that your body doesn’t overheat – a way in which you’re opening all the meridians in your body, a way in which you’re increasing the flow of chi within rather than obstructing it – well, then, you will know what it’s like to be 80, 90 and up and still be able to move with ease. You’ll know what it’s like to still be mentally alert, filled with vim, vigor and enthusiasm.
This is what you are taught in the Chinese Long-Life System.
The other day I was at the beach – training a couple friends. After one round of a specific exercise that looked like ‘nothing much’ – the guy turned to me and said, ‘WOW. I can feel the energy moving from my shoulders to my hands. I can feel something clicking internally.’
Indeed. That’s the difference.
For great health you don’t just focus on the muscles. The muscles matter not if even ONE organ in your body runs amuck. See how strong your legs are when a kidney fails. Or how powerful your chest if your heart has an attack. Or how far you can throw a football if your spleen is ruptured.
The Chinese approach to a long-life involves working from the inside out. That’s why it is uniquely powerful. That’s why it works.
