Eternal youth and radiant looks are the dreams of many people. Young and old alike seek to maintain good health so as to defer the ageing process. The basic approach to total wellness can begin with strengthening the immune system in the body.
There are many different approaches to achieving total wellness to prevent illness. Western medicine often uses "pharmaceutical therapies" to address health issues and control or mitigate the current condition of the patient. In contrast, Chinese medicine has an integrated stream of “philosophical medicine” to consolidate one’s health, build up “generic strength” and enhance immunity, regulating body wellness according to the four seasons of the year. The basic Chinese medicine concept is to prevent illness before it actually occurs. Taoists will use Qi Gong and regular fasting to nourish the body. Mindful meditation or repose with eyes closed has also proven to be beneficial in achieving total wellness. The panel speakers will share their expertise in total wellness and different approaches to improving body immunity.
