Tai Chi: Get Relief from Multiple Chronic Diseases with this ancient Chinese Technique.

Tai Chi: Get Relief from Multiple Chronic Diseases with this ancient Chinese Technique.

Exercise is often a point of contention in the health world ¬ not because it doesn’t have all kinds of benefits, but because people don’t necessarily want to do it. There are a number of reasons for this. First, exercise requires a certain degree of knowledge or skill. Secondly, it requires time and effort. Finally, it’s usually recommended without any specificity (other than for heart health, blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, back pain, muscle loss due to aging, etc.) Now a new large¬scale analysis is showing how the Ancient Chinese exercise technique of tai chi is helpful to people who suffer from multiple chronic conditions.
A recent report in the British Journal of Sports Medicine looked at 33 articles and 24 studies featuring nearly 1,600 participants. The report concluded that Tai Chi is an effective relief treatment for people suffering from breast cancer, heart failure, osteoarthritis, and COPD. Furthermore, it was found to help people with one or more of these conditions and did not cause any additional pain or breathlessness.
