According to the US Department of Health and Human Services and the CDC:
70-90% of all diseases are preventable
70-90% of all medical visits and use of pharmaceuticals and medical procedures are preventable.
95% of all illness and disease is either caused by or influenced by stress
We spend trillions of dollars annually treating largely preventable diseases. Stress is part of life, but we can learn to manage how we respond to it. By initiating the relaxation response, Qigong and Tai Chi are proven to reduce the effects of stress and activate natural internal healing mechanisms, helping us not only to heal, but also to maintain health, vitality, and peak performance.
Qigong = Low-cost healthcare
• Reduce your Healthcare costs
• Activate your Healer Within
YOUR GENES ARE NOT YOUR DESTINY
Less than 10% of all disease is caused by genes. Epigenetics is the study of how environment and lifestyle choices affect the expression of our genes and our health. By reducing stress and making healthy lifestyle choices you can improve your health regardless of your genes.
Telomeres are the caps at the end of each strand of DNA that protect our chromosomes - like the plastic tips at the end of shoelaces. Scientists have found that mind-body practices including Qigong and Tai Chi can protect our telomeres and increase our 'health-spans' - the number of years we remain healthy, active and disease-free.
You can influence the expression of your genes by turning on the healthy ones and turning off the disease-causing ones.
