DIGESTION, improving. T'ai Chi's gentle massage of internal organs and stimulation of blood circulation and Qi promote healthy digestion.

Some diaticians recommend doing Tai Chi or Qigong before each meal. For several reasons.

1) It relaxes the body, improving microcirculation, which can enhance the body's ability to absorb nutrients when digesting. Throughout the body capilaries, carrying food nutrients to the cells, are no more than a millimeter away from each cell.

2) When more relaxed, we tend to savor and taste what we are eating more, chew slower, and digest better.

3) When stressed we are drawn to greasy, sugary, salty foods that distract us from our stress. When calm our palete is more subtle and can relish the simpler flavors of fruits and vegetables.
