Sugar’s Sick Secrets: How Industry Forces Have Manipulated Science to Downplay the Harm(The Problem)

More on that here…if you ever thought that the food industry was your friend, re-think that.

The Solution

Search this Blog for ‘Jason Fung, M.D.’ and read or view everything he says: it boils down to just three or four simple messages, but getting the message may save your life.

If you are healthy, his message will help to keep you that way.

If you are NOT healthy, his message is the most important thing you can learn and understand. A starting place for regaining health. A strategy for taking back control. A way out when all other efforts may have failed. A simple approach that anyone can do: it costs nothing – in fact it will SAVE you money, time, energy, and effort.

For Tai Chi Students: Too Good or Not Good Enough

Routinely I get questions about whether a person is right for participating Tai Chi classes: some people think that they are in too bad of shape for it; others think that Tai Chi is not nearly demanding enough for them.

The spectrum of possibility for participation in Tai Chi is almost unlimited: I don’t teach ‘chair tai chi’ but there are those that offer it. What I do tell people is that they need to be able to stand up; it would be good if they could also walk. (There are a few assumptions there: legs and feet to name two. Eyes and ears would be nice, but if you have one or the other, it would work.) So you are probably not going to be disqualified on disability, but you might be – so I have tried to answer that.

If you think that you are too fit for Tai Chi, then you just do not know enough about it. As an 800-year old Chinese mixed martial art, Tai Chi is ‘complete’ – and that is not part of a marketing phrase. There are almost infinite ways to scale the challenge to training, once you learn.

Perhaps the first thing you learn is patience – if you are patient enough to learn it.

We can and do accommodate (almost) all types in Tai Chi.
