Originally posted on Dr. Aihan Kuhn's Website. I often speak with school teachers, and school nurses. The majority of them tell me that they are very stressed, and they feel helpless about problems in school and student health. I have spoken with children too. Some of them told me that they hate school, or don’t like school. Others are “OK” with school, but are sick often. In other cases, students have changed from public school to private school. Common school issues for chi

In my teaching, I often like to use stories that are meaningful and make a point, to remind/help us to learn and grow. Very often we need to be reminded no matter how smart we are. A King had a hobby of playing at the “Rooster fighting” (which was an old sport in ancient China, but not in modern times anymore. It is something like the Spanish Bull fighting sport).

Why do I promote learning about the Dao? It is t
Originally posted on Dr. Aihan Kuhn's Website. About 8 years ago, I had a patient named Jane, who suffered from PTSD which was diagnosed by her doctor. She was about 48 years old, married and had two children. Her symptoms were more than just emotional. She had pain all over her body, insomnia, anxiety, depression, fear, low energy level, headache, weight gain, often had nightmares, and no interest in the things she used to like. Her symptoms were definitely affecting her rel

Not surprisingly, many people started to get nervous. As the impact day approached, the nervousness got stronger and you could feel a sense of panic. Many stores had empty shelves. Some people felt like it was the end of the world. Friends asked me again and again, to leave town, go anywhere but F
Originally posted on Dr. Aihan Kuhn's Website. This winter, everyday we hear that some people suffer from flu or even die from the flu. This has caused major fear in the public. It is a big thing we need to address, but how to prevent it is more important. Flu shots only work for some people, Tama-Flu also only works on some people. What we need to do is to learn to prevent getting sick by strengthening our immune system with daily Qi practice. “Qi” is vital energy in the bod
Originally published on Dr. Aihan Kuhn's website. We live in a very complex world. Many of us are overloaded with information, technology, apps, consumer goods, foods, clothing, stuff, activities, and events. Because of this, many of us feel overwhelmed, and don’t remember how to breathe anymore. Others may even feel they need to acquire more. Ironically, when the time comes that we need to move or relocate, we find out some things in our closet have never even been used; an

I felt like I had to start my life all over again. After moving to Massachusetts, I tried to work in a hospital so I could learn
