To live a healthy life at the most basic level, we all know that there are certain habits that must be maintained on a consistent basis.
Want healthy teeth? Brush a few times daily, floss at least once a day, and visit your dentist for regular check-ups.
Healthy bodily hygiene requires that you shower or bathe daily.
Living at a healthy bodyweight results from consistently eating the right types of foods, and regularly engaging in some form of exercise.
Most importantly, living your life at your absolute healthiest, with 100% energy flow and maximum expression of life requires clearing the body of meridian imbalances and then maintaining those changes through consistent wellness treatments.
These are truths that cannot be denied. When you quit performing any of these proactive habits, its corresponding aspect of health begins to decline.
So let’s say you did give up these habits. What would happen to your state of health as it relates to that activity?
Quit brushing and flossing and you risk losing your teeth. As undesirable as this would be, you can still live without a mouthful of teeth. Sure it’s more difficult, but you would survive.
Give up bathing and, while your circle of friends would quickly diminish, you would be in no imminent threat of losing your life.
Stop exercising or eating well and soon your neglect will be written all over your expanding body.
Start powering down or inhibiting the meridian system, however, and your quality of life plummets right along with it. Shut the meridian system down completely, and you will be very unhealthy.
This is not to imply that if you give up your acupuncture treatments that disease is imminent, but it does speak volumes toward the importance of keeping the power of the meridian system flowing freely at all times.
Life revolves around the meridian system and when they become imbalanced, or blocked, the energy that runs the body is diminished.
As important as it is to correct meridian imbalances and restore normal function to the meridian system, it is just as critical to maintain those changes. A lifetime of preventative, wellness acupuncture care and meridian freeing practices like qigong and tai chi are some of the healthiest habits that you can engage in.
