Healthy Lifestyle

A study on longevity shows that family factor affects longevity by 15%, medical factor makes 8%, while lifestyle factor makes 60%. In sociology, a lifestyle is the way a person lives. That is to say, the way we live affects us directly on how healthy we can be and how long we can live.

We can't choose our family genes. But we can choose how to live. I believe the best examples to follow are those who already successfully lived 100 years and over. I found interesting stories of Centenarians on the internet. Many of them have something in common. They live simple and active life, they are happy people, they don't worry about things, and they eat light meals.

These sound simple. But in today's world, it's not easy to live a simple life. Things are complicated. And there are always things to worry about. I have been trying to keep myself positive, happy and active. But one thing I could not control. I always have late dinner after a full day of work. This is not healthy at all. Now that I'm retired, I don't have to eat late dinner any more. From today on, I will have light dinner not later than 7:00 pm. In a year, I will find out what impact it has on my overall health. At least, I don't have to go to bed with a full stomach of undigested food.

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
