Dear Dr Mao

The Five Elements & Nutrition

Monday, July 1, 2019 | 5 - 6 pm PST

For thousands of years, the beautifully effective principles of Five Element Theory have guided traditional Chinese medicine in the creation of healing medicinal and nutritional recipes. The teachings share that through the relationship of the five elements of nature — wood, fire, earth, metal, and water — we can grasp which body type we fit into best so that we can then seek lasting balance by enjoying a diet that allows us to remain healthy and active throughout our lives. Join us in July as Dr. Mao shares how you can easily use these principles to create a framework to aid you in making food choices that will most benefit your wellbeing. It’s going to be a fun-filled hour as we explore element characteristics, color, flavor, therapeutic benefits, and the legacy of alchemy practices that can steer you towards achieving longevity!

Join Dr. Mao on our Tao of Wellness Facebook page for his monthly interactive live series, Dear Dr. Mao. This Q&A is your chance to personally connect with him and ask your own questions on how to be healthy, fit, happy and to thrive.

Women's Wellness with Dr Dao

Fortify Your Bone Health & Prevent Osteoporosis

Your bones are likely smaller and thinner than a man’s so that it may seem like osteoporosis is a part of aging, but it doesn’t have to be. Don’t take this news lying down! While it’s true that bone strength and mass can decline with age, there are many things that you can do to lower your chances for bone weakness. Prevention is key because when bones are weak, it is easy for fractures to occur as well as bones breaking. There’s no time like the present to make sure that your bones stay strong. Join Dr. Dao in July as he teaches you the real reasons women are prone to this and then shows you how to get up, get moving, and create a plan to fortify your body frame. Get ready to bone up on the best tips available for every age!

Tao of Life Tele-Study

Attune Your Body with Dao-IN

by Taoist Master Ni, Hua-Ching

Page 7-14, 30 - 40 practice | Page 93 - 95 Meditation #49

Page 1 and Chapter 4, “Important Guidance for Practicing Dao-In are also recommended if you have more time. DVD’s for this are available too.

Master Ni, Hua-Ching, the 37th-generation practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as Taoist Healing Arts, has written many well-known books on spirituality. Led by Dr. Dao, our monthly tele-study group is open to everyone. There is a wide range of experience in this group from newcomers to long-term participants. Together, we will explore Master Ni’s writings. Participants take turns to select a passage from his books so that as a group, we can delve into the meanings of his writings and how we can apply this knowledge into our daily lives.

This month’s selection comes from Scott Dorn. He shares:

I have found Dao-In to be a great resource, and wanted to share this with the group! There are wonderful insights and wisdom for healing. I find the practice effective, calming, tonifying, and nurturing. Just a note on Page 38, Exercise #7: if one has any neck issues it’s ok to modify this by bridging from the shoulder area. Listen to your body.

If you do not own Attune Your Body with Dao-In, it may be purchased on the Wellness Living Store website at: www.taostar.com

If you have any questions, please contact Peter Stege at: pstege@hotmail.com

The Healing Hour

Fitness Gone Wrong - Ways to Prevent Injury

It’s an admirable goal to hit the gym weekly so that you feel your personal best. But, a workout can go wrong in one session of pushing yourself too hard, overusing muscles that you’ve neglected the rest of the week, and/or engaging in your exercise of choice with bad form and lack of balance. Injuries are painful and debilitating. They can also set you back weeks or sometimes even months from your exercise goals. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to reduce your risk. This month let’s chat about ways to injury-proof your fitness routine. Not only will we examine some of the culprits that can potentially cause more harm than good, but we will also provide you with workout rescue tactics for body maintenance, nutrition, recovery, and more. Get ready to crush your next workout session with educated confidence!
