Tai Chi And a Healthy Body!

                                            Mind And Body Correlation

The mind and the body are said to be interconnected,  and this is a proven fact that is studied continuously through clinical studies and disease modification. If you  are trying to improve your health are many ways that mind and body correlate that can be examined to increase the success rate of recovery. The  use of conventional medicine is seen  throughout the different health care   facilities such as the emergency room, out-patient clinics, and physicians office.  Physicians use conventional medicine to diagnose and treat diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and asthma by taking tests and prescribing medications.

The mind and the body interact like a computer by sending signals how to react to a non stressful situation or a stressful situation, which clinicians recognize as fight or flight syndrome. The body is prepared to fight if it has to survive, and chemicals  are dumped into our system which over time can cause the adrenal gland that sits on top of your  kidneys to burnout. Emotional reactions that are strong over periods of lengthy times can cause the cortisol to increase, As this type of response continues this explains how the body and mind are responsible for illness.

There are several ways that contemporary medicine or Chinese medicine  consider by calming the mind down. Breathing can help slow down the anxiety body when practiced correctly. Taking slow breaths in and then letting it out is one way to calm the nervous system down.  Chinese medicine focuses on the balance of the body with meridian points on the body, and acupuncture is also a way to help with headaches, anxiety, depression, and other medical problems.

Guided mediation is a specific way of mediating usually a tape or voice to guide you into a certain calmer state.  Along with conventional medicine Tai Chi, Yoga and acupuncture are great ways to improve a health condition. There are studies done by the”Mayo clinic that state Tai chi is very valuable for people who have back problems or other health issues that can limit their movement.”Tai chi, also called tai chi chuan, is a noncompetitive , self-paced system of gentle physical exercise and stretching. Each posture flows into the next without pause, ensuring that your body is in constant motion. ( Mayo Clinic, 2013).

Tai chi has many different styles and its own subtle emphasis on various tai chi principles and methods. There are also variations within each style. Some may focus on health maintenance, while others focus on the martial arts aspect of tai chi.


Tai chi is low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. In fact, because tai chi is low impact, it may be especially suitable if you’re an older adult who otherwise may not exercise. Tai Chi is also a great way to get out and be sociable with other people. It is not that expensive, and once you learn the moves they can be practiced at home, too.
Although tai chi is generally safe, women who are pregnant or people with joint problems, back pain, fractures, severe osteoporosis or a hernia should consult their health care provider before trying tai chi.
