Proactive Wellness Strategies

Proactive Wellness Strategies
By Tony Rogers

We have been led to believe that we only go to the doctor when we are ill. For many medical help is not sort after until the third stage of illness. We are all in the first stage of illness due to the food that we eat, the air that we breathe, the water that we drink and the products that we use. It is very difficult to get away from the toxins that lay dormant in our body.
In the second stage of illness is when we feel that something is not right but it is not bad enough to seek medical help. It’s something that needs to be looked into when we can get around to it or when it gets worse. In the third stage of illness we know we have to get medical help from our doctor or the emergency room of our local hospital. 

In the fourth stage we are taken to the hospital and by this time it could be too late.
Currently there is a larger profit in cure then in prevention a major reason why your own health strategies in prevention can no longer be put aside until you can find the time. There is a shocking DVD out titled “Genetic Roulette” a film by bestselling author Jeffrey M. Smith and narrated by Lisa Oz. It talks about the alarming evidence that shows how genetically modified organisms (GMOs) found in much of the food we eat; can be traced to the rising disease rates in the United States. Warning it will make you think twice about eating foods I am sure you like.

When you add stress to all of this the ability to avoid illness is not great. Over 90% of illnesses in the United States can be traced back to stress. It is way passed the time not to be proactive with your health. The need to bring balance to mind, body and spirit has never been greater. Meditation, yoga, Tai Chi and Ki training are important steps to consider in developing a preventive wellness strategy.
Holistic health programs are becoming major paths taken by many who seek to take control of their proactive wellness options. I am working with a few groups in the wellness community in Harlem to coordinate the first annual Harlem Holistic Wellness Week, Saturday April 27th to Saturday May 4th.

The week-long celebration will high light the many options available that one might take to begin a proactive holistic wellness program. The week will begin on April 27th with the annual celebration of International World Tai Chi Day in Saint Nicolas Park at 135th street and end on May 4th at the second annual City College Holistic Wellness Expo.

I invite anyone interested in learning about ways to improve their ability to balance mind, body and spirit to call me directly at 646 329-6727 and schedule a visit to the New York Ki Energy Wellness Center in Harlem. Remember we all are in the first stage of illness we breathe, eat and drink toxins every day.  Be proactive not reactive with your health, the life you save maybe your own.

King of Herbs

King of Herbs

In China and Korea Panax ginseng is known as the “King of all Herbs” For thousands of years, Panax ginseng has been viewed as a miracle of life because of its healing power. In ancient China, Panax ginseng was reserved for emperors and only the wealthiest of citizens. Traditional Panax ginseng has been used for its ability to build resistance and reduce susceptibility to illness for over 5000 years. Written records in the use of Panax ginseng can be traced as far back as to the Han Dynasty in medical reference materials.

Another reason Panax ginseng is often referred to as being the King of Herbs is because the root resembles human figures and its seemingly mystical properties in restoring health. Research in China, Japan and Korea suggest that traditional Panax ginseng can:
 *Reduce fatigue and increase stamina
 *Improve mental conditions and helps prevent neuroses
 *Help the formation of red blood cells and counters anemia
 *Enhance body metabolism, balance the hormonal system and help prevent    diabetes     
  *Strengthen the gastrointestinal system and help facilitate liver regeneration
 *Detoxify poisons, enhance blood alcohol clearance and reduce the effect of                 alcohol intoxication.                  

Research in Russia and America have shown that specific types of ginseng can stimulate the brain, sedate the central nervous system, balance certain metabolic processes, improve muscle tone, stimulate the endocrine system and balance hormone levels. Research also suggests specific types of ginseng can be anti-tumor and anti-viral.

There are many different kinds of ginseng that are cultivated in different parts of the world. They differ in their content of active agents and their overall effectiveness. Only two kinds of ginseng are medicinally considered genuine, Chinese-Korean Panax ginseng and Canadian Panax quinquefolius. Chinese-Korean Panax ginseng is considered by many Taoist wellness practitioners as the emperor of all herbal remedies, due to the diversity of its active agents and richness of its effects

Six years ago the Bing Han Company introduced refined panax ginseng products to America. Bing Han Chinese-Korean ginseng is considered the best traditional ginseng in the world. This all natural 100% pure Ginseng is nurtured for a six year period with organic fertilizer before it matures into an adult plant to be harvested. The land is then left idle for 15 years to replenish its nutrients. No chemicals or chemical fertilizers are added to the soil where the ginseng grows.

I plan to introduce a new wellness web site (The Way 2 during  Harlem Holistic Wellness Week (April 27th to May 4th) Bing Han ginseng will be one of the products available on that site. We will also make Bing Han ginseng available by order at the New York Ki Energy Wellness Center.
We will have Bing Han ginseng products and order forms at the Ki Wellness exhibit during this year’s NewLife Wellness Expo March 22th to March 24th at the Hotel New Yorker 34th Street & 8th Avenue. The NewLife is the largest mind, body and spirit expo in America. I will interview NewLife expo founder Mark Becker on my WHCR  90.3FM wellness radio program Tuesday March 12th at 4:00pm tune in on line at
