A Global Vision -
One World ... One Breath!
Can mind-body practices health our planet?
You might be surprised ...
Mind-body masters have long said that you heal the planet by healing yourself.
This may have sounded a bit narcissistic and pie-in-the-sky thinking ... until now.
The United States alone spends upward of $4 trillion, that's $4 TRILLION per year on healthcare.
A 20 year study by Kaiser Permanente found that over 70% of all illness sending people to their doctors were caused by stress, and when we at WorldTaiChiDay.org contacted Dr. David Sobel at Kaiser to confirm this figure, he told us that depending on how you looked at those numbers, that figure could go as high as 85% of illness being, not aggravated by stress, but CAUSED by it.
Tai Chi and Qigong are being proven in medical studies to be perhaps the most powerful stress management therapies available when taught as meditative practices.
We are looking at TRILLIONS of dollars in possible health savings every year, year after year after year.
The United Nations estimates that it would take around $30 billion per year to end the global food crisis. 30 billion is only a tiny slice of the trillions Tai Chi and Qigong could save in global health costs, if provided widely throughout society worldwide.
Think of this. Tai Chi and Qigong could END WORLD HUNGER.
Those mind-body master's ideas don't sound so airy-fairy all of a sudden, they sound like very practical advice for the world.
When we practice our Tai Chi and Qigong meditations, and tell others about these health practices, we may be part of a wave of change that will one day end world hunger.
TELL EVERYONE ABOUT TAI CHI AND QIGONG!
You can use our WorldTaiChiDay.org Tai Chi Medical Research Library to find articles on breaking medical research and use it to forward to friends and contacts in social media.

Just a sampling is recent medical research showing that Tai Chi can increase brain size; treat Parkinson's disease; treat COPD; treat Heart Disease; and much more.
