16 Aug Can Healthy Habits Really Make You Healthier?
It’s necessary to know how to stay healthy.
We’re lost in too many ‘How-to’s.
Are we really healthy after all?
Too much good can be rather harmful.
In Korean Medicine, being in balance is the standard of being healthy. When one is too much or too little of something, it breaks the body’s balance: this is defined as being sick.
The imbalance caused by too little is called Deficiency and imbalance caused by too much is called Excess. In the past, there were more patients with Deficiency from not eating enough and not exercising correctly or effectively. But recently there’s been significant growth in patients with Excess, who have been sick due to overdoing things to stay healthy. Too much good, by nature, does more harm than good, and it’s often overlooked by many.
