At some point the “one size fits all” attitude has got to give. One diet plan does not work for everyone, one medication does not work for everyone, one workout regimen does not work for everyone, one educational model does not work for everyone…….etc.
Why “one size fits all” does not work, is that we are not ONE SIZE, or age, or gender, or ethnic group, or even age group. We all know this, but can’t help wanting to try the “latest and greatest” to see if it works for us.
Let’s talk in the language of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Qigong. There is a number of great significance: 5. There are 5 Seasons to our Life: Spring, Early Summer, Late Summer, Autumn and Winter. I can hear your questions already. What does this mean for you?
There are also 5 Elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. These elements (Think attributes or propensities) are a means of describing body types and behaviors and more. And that affects the foods and activities that are best suited to each type. Curious yet?
Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Cancer, Auto-Immune concerns, Alzheimer’s etc. Do you or someone you know have one of these conditions? Science is looking for the “smoking gun”, or the “One size fits all” underlying cause and cure for most of these chronic conditions. But there isn’t one. It’s more like a Perfect Storm of many things, which leads us back to TCM.
Essentially, we make ourselves sick through stress, worry, sitting too long, eating too much, sleeping too little, etc.Our bodies are like “high performance cars” that we refuse to maintenance regularly, change the oil or properly tune. But we can fix ourselves through Self-Care Health-Care, Qigong.
