" " Exercise Program

Exercise is essential for health. But it cannot proceed adequate nutrition. If you attempt too vigorous an exercise program before vitality is restored to the body, you may have a heart attack or stroke. Once vitality is restored, you will leap into exercise without force.

The first exercise to undertake is walking, swimming or biking. Initially, do not allow yourself to become out of breath.  These are beneficial even when done slowly. They work every muscle of the body.

Next you may add weight training, because toned muscles burn more calories. After this strengthen the abdominal muscles from which the whole body is cradled.  The "chi" is housed here and flows throughout. Strong abdominal muscles keep the organs in proper alignment allowing for their wholesome working.
