Health care for the 21st century

Chinese medicine is 10,000 years old and based on the concept of the “barefoot doctor,” in which everyone receives health care.

Have you wanted to explore alternative health care, only to find it was unavailable or too expensive? Many people are seeking alternatives to traditional health care, especially as America’s current medical system seems to be falling apart and breaking down. The good news is that there are many things you can do on your own to improve your health and your family’s health, but it does require a commitment to change and responsibility.

The first level of responsibility is preventive medicine, which involves exercise, attitude, diet, co-counseling, and Chinese medicine and acupuncture.

Exercises that are cost-effective and easy to do include tai chi chih, qi gong, yoga and meditation. Tai chi chih is a form of chi gong and can be done sitting or standing. The effects are immediate. By simply doing a few moves a day, you can totally reenergize your body on the mental, physical and spiritual levels. There are at least 120 types of chi gong and medical chi gong that can reverse many medical problems and give you peace of mind.

Learning to go within and changing your thoughts from negative to positive can benefit you greatly. In fact, you can reverse many conditions by reframing them in a positive way or aligning yourself with a goal you want to accomplish. By doing this, you learn to let go of the past and move forward in your life. Done on a daily basis, you can successfully raise your vibratory rate and clear out deep negativity. The work of Dr. Joe Dispenza ( is an excellent source for learning how to contact the quantum field and face your internal emotions, such as anger, fear and insecurity.

Eating a healthy diet of fresh, organic vegetables, fruits and protein goes a long way toward optimizing your health. The local farmers’ market is a great place to find a wide variety of these healthful and nutritious foods.

Co-counseling is a technique that teaches you how to work with a partner to receive support for releasing the past and becoming free of guilt, shame, anxiety and loneliness. It can be done once a week.

Chinese medicine is 10,000 years old and based on the concept of the “barefoot doctor,” in which everyone receives health care. It uses acupuncture, in which needles are placed at specific points in the body for cultivating health, moving blood, increasing internal energy and clearing blockages on a mental and spiritual level. Acupuncture provides a jump start for moving your energy into balance and harmonizing your life force.

Community Acupuncture makes the practice affordable and is done in a group setting, which creates an atmosphere of healing and community. This collective energy makes the treatments more powerful, yet the rooms are quiet enough for you to go into deep relaxation while your system is balanced.

In the 21st Century, it is likely that you will have to take more responsibility for your health and find alternative solutions to maintaining your most precious resource, by preventing illness from the start.
