Tai chi boosts your immune system

T-Cell count DOUBLED
The ancient martial art of tai chi could substantially boost the body's immune system. Medisch Dossier (volume 6, number 7), a Dutch medical newsletter, reports on a study where a group of older men and women (average age of 70) practiced tai chi three days a week for 45 minutes. After fifteen weeks they not only felt healthier, but had twice the number of immune cells or so-called T-cells “with memories”, which are specially equipped to knock out the virus that causes shingles—an affliction in many older people.

"Tai chi is a combination of biofeedback, visualization and gentle exercise movements that together have a profound impact on mental, physical and emotional health," says Bill Douglas, founder and international director of World Tai Chi and Qigong Day, which takes place April 29 this year. "Tai chi is used as therapy for chronic pain and limited mobility, but its greatest power is preventive."
Studies of tai chi show it reduces blood pressure, episodes of anxiety and depression, and symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. It also helps give a boost to the immune system, builds bone mass, and improves chronic pain, limited mobility, balance and coordination.
