Tai Chi & Weight Loss-A Chiropractic Approach?

Here is a site with statistics on obesity in the U.S. and on the calories burned while doing various activities. Tai Chi is featured as a good option and there is mention and a link back to World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, which is how I heard about it.

For the record, to say that the statistics on numbers of people in this country being overweight or obese is alarming would be an understatement.

For the overweight or obese individual who wants to manage it, I agree with those who say that you should not focus on the weight at all. Instead focus on what you do want in the way of function. A focus on health asks the question what can I do and how can I do more, not what do the scales read.

Whatever the cause, with few exceptions, the eventual cure can be found in doing what it takes to be healthier: physically, chemically and mentally. That also happens to be very much a Chiropractic approach – what causes health rather than a war on some disease.
