Improve strength and endurance naturally! Active people of all kinds are continually seeking methods and supplements to increase their performance. It seems that every month there is something new and/or improved on the market. However, one need not look to the future for results.
Chinese Olympians have long utilized Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to naturally enhance strength and endurance, as well as heal physical injuries. The TCM modalities of acupuncture, bodywork and Chinese herbs help to optimize internal physiology.
Acupuncture reduces pain and inflammation. By improving blood circulation and range of motion, it not only shortens recovery time from injuries, but also enhances strength and endurance, thereby helping to prevent injuries. Soft tissue work improves circulation, eliminates toxins, relaxes muscles, increases joint lubrication and motion, while releasing stress.
When performing at an elite level small internal imbalances may be preventing you from reaching your full potential. Acupuncture establishes a more harmonious flow of chi (vital energy) and body fluids throughout the body. This allows the body to naturally heal itself and function at its optimum level.
Chinese herbs such as ginseng, cordyceps, and astragalus enhance strength and endurance. Ginseng regulates metabolic rate, optimizing the breakdown of foods. It also improves the use of oxygen in the body. Better metabolism and more efficient use of oxygen allow one to generate and use energy more efficiently. Astragalus benefits digestion, respiration and the immune system. Cordyceps fortifies all body systems by strengthening the immune system, maximizing oxygen uptake, promoting strong muscles, and improving kidney, liver, and lung functions. These are just a sample of herbs that can improve strength and endurance.
These TCM modalities along with a nutritious diet can help one to achieve the utmost strength and endurance and achieve peak performance levels.
