Clearing the toxins out of your body and mind is as important as brushing your teeth. If you don’t brush your teeth everyday then stains build up. If you don’t detox your body then toxin builds up. Toxin in the body can deplete your vitality and darken your sense of wellbeing. In healthy state, organs such as the liver, kidneys, bladder and intestines work in harmony together to get rid of the body toxins.
Liver— SELF-TAPPING QIGONG
The liver carries many functions, including filtering toxins and waste products from the blood, producing chemicals that breakdown fat, and creating urea. In Chinese medicine theory, liver is associated with Wood element. A powerful, simple way for keeping the liver strong and clean is to promote the Qi (vital energy) flow with SELF-TAPPING QIGONG.
Kidneys— a specific movement in EIGHT SILKEN MOVEMENT QIGONG
The kidneys filter the blood and produce urine, which is stored in the bladder for discharge. Proper functions of kidneys and bladder prevent the buildup of waste and extra fluid in the body, especially in the blood stream. Healthy kidneys are also important for keeping levels of electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, and phosphate stable and making hormones that help regulate blood pressure, make red blood cells and bones stay strong. There is a specific movement in EIGHT SILKEN MOVEMENT QIGONG delegated to strengthen the kidney energy.
Intestines— QIGONG MASSAGE on the abdomen
The intestines are a long, continuous tube running from the stomach to the anus. The major functions of intestines are to absorb nutrients but the large intestine has an additional responsibility of eliminating the waste in your body. If the feces remain in the bowel for too long, then toxins will be released to the body. QIGONG MESSAGE on the abdomen strengthens the core muscles and enhances the peristaltic action of the intestines and hence helps regulate the bowel movement.
Lymphatic system— ACTIVE QIGONG
Apart from the organs described above, the lymphatic system plays a key role in eliminating waste products and toxins in your body. Unlike the circulatory system, which has the heart to pump blood through the system, the lymphatic system does not have a pump. The lymph is moved through the lymphatic vessels by contractions of the lymphatic vessels and the surrounding skeletal muscles. ACTIVE QIGONG can foster the circulation of your lymph and remove the blockage in the lymphatic system.
Negative feelings—Stretching, a main part of Qigong exercises
On the other hand, non-material toxins can affect your wellbeing as well. When negative feelings such as fear, sadness and loneliness block the free flow of Qi, you need to create more “space” for the stagnant energy to move. Stretching, as a main part of Qigong exercises, is one of the most natural ways to achieve this.
Excessive Emotions—STILLNESS QIGONG
When excessive emotions such as stress, anxiety and anger interrupt the normal Qi flow you need to settle the rebellion energy. STILLNESS QIGONG is a very good practice to regulate the Qi flow by calming your mind and relaxing your body.
All in all, Qigong is a simple practice with profound results.
