Top 6 Life-giving Exercises

Skin

Staying Healthy through Pungyok (literally ‘wind bathing’) and Hot/Cold Bathing

Skin is a body part that directly comes into contact with the outside world for the first time in the human life. It is a boundary between humans and the universe. In addition, it acts as a channel between the human body and the outside. As soon as we are born, our skin is protected with clothes. If protected too much, bowels and intestines weaken, and body fluids are produced less, slowing down bowel movement and eventually causing constipation. Constipation is a cause of bowel paralysis. It piles up feces and has a bad effect on the brain. Furthermore, it makes the nerves in hands and feet numb and causes circulation troubles, making the hands and feet cold.
A problem in the feet affects the kidney, heart, lungs, and blood vessels and eventually leads to all kinds of diseases. In natural hygiene, pungyok and cold/hot bathing are highly recommended for keeping the skin supple and healthy.

Nutrition

Staying healthy with mineral water, Saengchaesik (‘raw vegetable diet’) 129,
vitamin C, and no breakfast

With the saying of ‘Food is Life,’ it’s been said that food is a basic requirement for life. Since World War II, however, it was recommended to take in only a sufficient number of calories. Today, therefore, the excessive intake of unnecessary nutrients has caused an increase in metabolic diseases, which has caused the accumulation of body waste. To solve this problem, it is necessary to make our body burn unnecessary nutrients and waste by supplying minimum nutrients to the body. Then, the body should stay healthy with good nutrients such as Saengchaesik and vitamin C.

1. Mineral Water

About 70 percent of the human body is made up of water, and oxygen is about 65% of water. All creatures are definitely related to water. If mineral water is boiled, the dissolved oxygen (DO) level decreases. Therefore, mineral water is better than boiled water for human health. Water has physiological utilities such as blood circulation, lymph activity, and acid base balance. It also removes toxins, prevents constipation, and inhibits the occurrence of guanidine. Furthermore, water supplies calcium to the body, eliminates body odor, and keeps the skin glossy and supple. It prevents alcohol poisoning and relieves diarrhea and vomiting as well. About 1.0-2l of water intake a day is good for health.

2. Saengchaesik (‘raw vegetable diet’) 129

What is Saengchaesik? It is a life meal that recuperates the human body. Health and lifespan are influenced by the type of food we eat. Many diseases are caused by wrong dietary habits (ex: overeating, etc.), lack of exercise, and stress. In other words, a lot of modern people suffer from various diseases because of ‘over nutrition,’ not ‘under nutrition.’ The best way to solve this problem is to take food as it is (Saengchaesik) such as vegetables, fruit, and brown rice while lowering meat intake. For a healthy adult, at least three different vegetables should be eaten. However, those suffering from certain illnesses need to eat more than five different vegetables to offset their nutritional defects

3. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for humans. It is not an overstatement to say that almost all diseases are caused by vitamin C deficiency. In other words, a lack of vitamin C leads to various diseases. Vitamin C itself is very effective in preventing and healing colds. Because it helps the absorption of other vitamins, it is an essential nutrient for health. If vitamin C is sufficiently supplied, the inner and outer layers of each mucous membrane are strongly connected, making the body not as easily infected by bacteria and strong against hypodermal bleeding. Furthermore, this nutrient makes the gum and mucous membranes of all organs, including urinary organs, robust and strong. It also promotes metabolism by forming connective tissues in all organs such as the genital and respiratory organs.

Arms and Legs

Keeping the arms and legs strong and healthy through capillary exercise

Feet are essential parts of human bodies for health. If a part of the skeletal structure is missed, pressure or friction may occur in joints, and feet become weakened. Just like a building, if the foundation is weak, it could soon collapse. If one leg is mostly used such as for driving a car, or if uncomfortable shoes (ex: high heels, etc.) are worn, there might be trouble in the feet. With the development of the means of transportation, people tend to walk less, which has, in turn, weakened feet. There are, on average, around 5.1 billion capillary vessels in humans, of which 3.8 billion are located in the limbs. In terms of ways to strengthen arms and legs in a natural manner, there is the capillary exercise, linear exercise, up-and-down exercise, and leg-strengthening exercise.

Mind

A key to keeping a human body strong and healthy

Basically, health is maintained by three factors: skin, nutrition, arms and limbs. In addition, the mind is a critical factor for health. The mind is the control tower of human bodies. Since it involves in nerves and endocrines, mental illness such as stress can lead to all kinds of diseases. In general, those with illnesses suffer from stress as well as a physical problem. Stress is a primary cause of all diseases. Before getting down to curing illnesses, therefore, we need to have a good mind first. In this way, we can perfectly recover from the illness after all.
