If you’re over the age of 40, you probably remember walking to school, playing ball with friends in the
outdoors, mowing the lawn, raking leaves, shoveling snow – and so on.
Today, your activity level may not represent anything close to what it was way back when. And if that’s the case, your body and mind are suffering because of it.
At the same time, if you are very active – there are inherent dangers involved as well. For example, if
you train very hard but don’t take in adequate water – you can do serious harm to your body. There are
many who believe the early signs of senility and Alzheimers are connected to your kidneys being weakened from dehydration.
Yet, lack of water is NOT the only reason for your kidneys to get weaker.
A few years ago I met an anti-aging physician who regularly pounds the pavement. He probably does at least five miles per day. He’s lean – but not healthy looking.
When I shook his hand I noted that his palms were cold. And this was in hot, humid Florida. How can your palms be cold when you’re supposedly getting ample blood circulation from cardiovascular exercise – as well as “the perfect diet.” How can your hands be cold when you have very low body fat.
A good acupuncturist could instantly tell you why. Despite all the exercise, your internal organs are
not functioning properly. Why. Because you’re burning them out. Instead of your body being more balanced after exercise – you’re more out of balance.
I see this all the time with people who do long distance training – as well as a lot of heavy weight training. The muscles get worked but the organs often grow weaker. The body is constantly pumping
adrenaline to meet goals, deadlines and heavy duty workouts – and it’s rebelling in a big way. Yet you
continue to ignore the signs – or you may not even know what the signs are.
When you’re constantly demanding more and more from yourself, your kidneys and adrenals can get out of whack very easily.
And it’s not from dehydration. It’s from doing too much yang exercise or work – too much vigorous heavy exertion training – with no yin – lighter exercise to balance out your system.
If you exert yourself with great vigor in any way during the day, either through exercise or labor in the office – you absolutely are in danger of being out of balance if you don’t do something to recharge your system.
This is precisely why I recommend the Chinese Long-Life System and Dao Zou programs. They help restore your system to a state of balance. They help revive and invigorate you. They do not beat you up worse than you already are. They open up the meridians of the body, providing greater chi flow to your entire system.
As I frequently say, you may think your muscles control the strength and health of your body – but you’d be wrong. Anyone with a kidney stone, a ruptured spleen, a bleeding stomach, an intestinal virus or a weak heart can tell you – when a single organ is off – you don’t have much power in you.
Because of these truths, I cannot over-encourage you to turn back the clock by exercising in kinder, gentler ways.
Yes, vigorous training has its place and I’m in favor of it – but many people need to build up their organs and increase chi flow MORE than they need to strengthen their muscles.
That’s why I wholeheartedly recommend the Chinese products that I went to great lengths to bring back to America.
Currently you can grab both of these programs for half off here.
Do the CLLS program in the a.m. to get your day started with a bang. Then end the day with Dao Zou – wherein you rewind your mind and eliminate all the stress from your day.
And if you’re looking for MORE vigorous training with a focus on mind-body harmony, be sure to get my best- selling Combat Conditioning program – now in over 150 countries – and counting.
That’s all for now. Tomorrow I begin Day One of a 4-day seminar. I’ll be back Monday with more – unless i decide to give you an update before then.
