A better choice for food


Health > CGI Healthy Life By CGI Holistic Wellness Center

More people are becoming health conscious and careful in choosing food. Today let’s talk about some common foods we eat almost every day, as well as good and bad choices of food for healthy living.

1. Rice

Rice is one of the most common foods. So it is important for you to know which rice to choose for your health. White rice is not terribly bad; it is actually brown rice processed one step more. The process of removing the bran from brown rice to make it white also lowers the nutritional value of rice. Brown rice contains more nutrition and less calories than white rice. Brown rice also has more fiber which makes you feel full quickly and able to eat less. There are also studies showing that brown rice is better than white rice to prevent type-2 diabetes. You should however, note that it is harder to digest brown rice. For those who prefer the taste of white rice or have a hard time digesting brown rice, try mixing half of each (white and brown rice) or just mix in a little bit of brown rice, depending on your preference. It tastes great!

Health > CGI Healthy Life By CGI Holistic Wellness Center

Fortunately, through Brain Education and physical exercise, many people with MS have made life-changing strides against pain and the physical and emotional obstacles caused by this disease. 

Five Exercises that help you make strides with MS


Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition in which the body’s immune system is directed against the fatty sheath, or myelin, that protects the nerve fibers. It's exact causes are unknown and a complete cure has been elusive.

From an energy perspective, MS can impede the flow of Qi. Yoga and other energy exercises can help people who suffer from MS improve their overall health and manage their stress.

Fortunately, through Brain Education and physical exercise, many people with MS have made life-changing strides against pain and the physical and emotional obstacles caused by this disease. People with MS who do yoga, meditation or some other sort of biofeedback exercises report that their mood, concentration, pain level or range of motion have greatly improved.

Here are five exercises for MS that are especially good for easing its symptoms, promoting balance and increasing flexibility and mobility.

Mindfulness and stress management for the youth


Health > CGI Healthy Life By CGI Holistic Wellness Center

Its purpose is to provide friendship, emotional support, and guidance to youth through their involvement with positive role models.

In March, one of our instructors, Master Jo, was invited to two places to teach energy yoga.

The first place that he visited was Dominican College. There, he gave an interactive lecture about mindfulness through the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. Big Brothers Big Sisters of America is the largest youth mentoring organization in the United States. The organization provides one-to-one mentoring relationships between children and adults. Its purpose is to provide friendship, emotional support, and guidance to youth through their involvement with positive role models. Their national motto is "making a difference, one child at a time." Master Jo expressed that he ‘felt a huge privilege and an even bigger responsibility to deliver my heart through the energy of my own mindful and energy practice. I am happy to say that all students left that room with more energy, a positive outlook on their lives, from their obstacles, to their successes.’
