This summer, we’ll continue to train and strengthen our body and mind. We will also learn how to apply ancient Shaolin Medicine wisdom in our Shaolin Kung Fu, Tai Chi, and Qigong classes to diagnose and improve the health of our large intestine.
The large intestine is one of the vital organs of our body. If your large intestine is not doing well, you can experience many symptoms such as bloating, severe pain in the belly area, nasal congestion, dehydration, and pain in the shoulders, hands, and teeth. On the other hand, understanding how your large intestine works, what the symptoms are, and how to take care of it, will help boost your vitality and make better lifestyle choices.
