Dear Dr Mao

The Biggest Myth About Shedding Pounds: Why Exercise Alone Won’t Result In Weight Loss

Monday, June 3, 2019 | 5 - 6 pm PST

If you are trying to lose weight, your first impulse might be to take on an aggressive workout routine, but guess what? It won’t lead to weight loss! People who are very physically active do not necessarily burn more calories than moderately active people. Exercise is beneficial for health, strength and emotional wellbeing. However, when it comes to weight loss, it’s almost entirely about what you eat. Knowing this doesn’t necessarily mean that you should trade in your workout sneakers for meal prepping instead. It does mean more awareness for a better lifestyle formula, though. Dr. Mao is going to breakdown what you need to strategize about metabolism, digestion, exercise, stress and more so that you can map out a successful June plan to achieve your weight wellness goals and welcome in the summer!

Dr. Mao Shing Ni, a 38th generation doctor of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, has been featured on The Dr. Oz Show, The Doctors, Katie Couric, and Home & Family Show, is a board-certified anti-aging specialist, alternative medicine advocate, best-selling author and global public speaker.

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

HPV - Should I Worry?

Thursday, June 13, 2019 | 5:15 - 6:15 pm PST | Facebook Live Event

Human Papilloma Virus, aka HPV, is the most common type of sexually transmitted infection. Whether you’re sexually active or not, HPV can be transferrable. Most of the time, HPV is pretty harmless, and often women don’t even realize that they have acquired this, but in some cases, it can have serious consequences. Menopause can be another trigger because like chickenpox, this virus can lie dormant in the bodies of people who were infected earlier in life and then reactivation risk may increase around age 50. This month let’s chat about what all women should know for HPV, whether the HPV vaccine is necessary and what other steps you can take to best care for your wellbeing. Raising awareness can give you choices, and knowing you have options is fortunately very empowering.

Join Dr. Dao on our Tao of Wellness Facebook page for a new episode of his monthly interactive live series. This Q&A is your chance to personally connect with him and ask your own questions about women’s health, fertility and wellbeing.

Tao of Life Tele-Study Group

with Dr. Dao - FREE Monthly Study Group

Moonlight in the Dark Night by Taoist Master Hua-Ching Ni, Page 75

Evolve Heaven on Earth by Taoist Master Hua-Ching Ni & Dr. Maoshing Ni, Page 105

June 20, 2019

5:30 pm - 6:30 pm PST

Zoom Live Audio Event

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 Olivia Rosewood. As she shares:

I’m interested in exploring Quan Yin energy, as described Moonlight in the Dark Night, and I’d like to know the correct pronunciation and manner of practice for the Quan Yin invocation from Evolve Heaven on Earth:

“Da Dao Quan Ming Yung Heng”

“Quan Yin is a model of graceful spiritual energy. Anyone who achieves herself for himself is a Quan Yin, at least to have the wisdom that helps a woman rise above emotional suffering. To rise above one’s suffering is more of a spiritual achievement and personal energy sublimation than being a person of such and such worldly attainment or position.

Just like Quan Yin, many Taoist women achieved themselves with a special practice that you just sublimation of spiritual energy that teaches sublimation of spiritual energy and spiritual energy. There is both sexual energy sublimation into spiritual energy and spiritual energy sublimation into the achieved soul. Spiritual energy can be converged and is transformable. When spiritual energy remains in its natural purity and gentleness, the name of Jade Maiden is given to it. It is beyond gender.”

Note: The main reading is from Moonlight. The selection from Evolve Heaven on Earth is supplementary.

If you do not own either book, then these may be purchased on the Wellness Living Store website at: www.taostar.com

The Healing Hour: Five Health Issues Men Shouldn’t Ignore

Men are notorious for ignoring health issues and avoiding the doctor’s office. However, not all medical issues can be avoided easily. We all know symptoms like shortness of breath or chest pain require immediate medical attention, but sometimes the signs aren’t as apparent — sleep challenges, persistent body pain, slow urine stream, frequent heartburn, erectile dysfunction and more. This month’s episode will teach you about the symptoms for five conditions that you shouldn’t overlook. The warning signs are there, but awareness is critical. Women can be tremendous support too by vocalizing the necessity of yearly check-ups and land watching out for danger signs. Feeling healthy isn’t the same as being healthy. Men interested in protecting their virility need to be vigilant about having a healthy lifestyle and embracing preventative, healthy habits.
