We Need To Start Young with Self-Care

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 children are discipline problems, focus issues, bullying, low self confidence, peer pressure, and emotional difficulties. Many children are on medication, and the kids are often ill. At the same time, school systems demand

Practice Inner Wisdom

Originally posted on Dr. Aihan Kuhn's Website. I like this story because it reminds me about the journey of life. 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). The King hired a trainer who had the best reputation for training fighting roosters. The trainer started to work with King’s rooster. After 10 days of training, the King asked the trainer, “Can my rooster participate in

Dao, the Wisdom of the Ancients

Originally Posted on Dr. Aihan Kuhn's Website. When I talk to people about the Dao (Tao), most people from Western countries don’t understand. When I talk to Chinese people, many don’t understand either. To me it is like a lost art, or lost wisdom. The one thing I want to mention is that even though many Chinese don’t understand much about the Dao, they do practice it to some extent. It certainly does still show in the culture. Why do I promote learning about the Dao? It is the philosophy that helped me the most in my life. It is also a method that I introduce to my patients and my students, and they get a great deal of relief from their physical and emotional pain. In some ways it is even b

Tai Chi for PTSD

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 relationships and work. Working with her was a challenge in the beginning. Her symptoms improved slower than what I expected. Looking at her sad face, I felt I needed to help her, and I knew I could help her. So I decided t

Why Tai Chi and Qi Gong?

Originally Posted on Dr. Aihan Kuhns Website Tai Chi and Qi Gong continue to gain popularity worldwide. The healing and health benefits are attractive to those looking into these healing arts.

Those just deciding to learn these exercises have questions about how to choose between the two of them in the first place, I hope this article will help. First of all, both these exercises involves slow body movements are working with Qi, which is internal energy moving through the body, just like electricity moving through a wire. Smooth Qi flow keeps the organ system functioning. Full concentration

I Went Through Hurricane Irma with Dao

Originally Posted on Dr. Aihan Kuhns Website. Before Hurricane Irma came to Florida, the media aggressively reported how big this hurricane would be and how dangerous it would be. 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 Florida. Right before Hurricane Irma hit Florida, I had a student doing private training for two days. With the chaos and nervousness everywhere, I could have been justified in canceling this training. I said to myself -

Defeat the Flu with Daily Qi Practice

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 body; “Gong” is practice to gain the skill. Qi practice is also Qi Gong practice. Our immune system is the defense system that protects our body from sickness. With a strong and balanced immune system, the body can protect

The Beauty of Simplicity

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; and many things we end up throwing away or donating. We then feel bad that we wasted so much money. I have been through this, and I really wish someone had taught me the lesson of simplicity sooner. Practicing “life cleans

What Makes Good Leaders

Originally published on Dr. Aihan Kuhn's website. Leadership is important in every field, from school to companies to organizations, from religion to politics, from sports teams to performance artists. When talking about leaders, it can be a leader in the house, leader of the community, leader in the company, leader of the country, leader of any group, or leader of yourself. Good leaders make things happen, move things forward and have the mindset to achieve anything on their agenda. Good leaders are not selfish. They put others first. They set an example and teach by example. Good leaders know what is important, and what is not important. They prioritize tasks. Good leaders are able

Don't Let The World Divide Us

Originally Posted on Dr. Aihan Kuhn's Website. I came to this country in 1989. At that time, I had very little English, and was raising two children at home. My husband had to work to support the family and only on weekends did we have a chance to talk. It was not easy for me changing from being a practicing physician in China to becoming a nobody. 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 English and become familiar with the medical system here, as well as learn the culture of this county. I also tried to read English at night with my limited time. You would never guess what show I started to watch in the

My Uncle's Story

Originally published on Dr. Aihan Kuhn's Website When I first visited my Uncle in the hospital in October of 2017 not one of his doctors thought he would make anything close to a full recovery. In fact, the moment that I walked in the room one of his doctors was reviewing their DNR (Do not resuscitate) policy with him because they thought his end was so close! He had gone in for a routine bypass procedure on his heart earlier in the summer. The bypass itself went quite well, but there were several complications and bad luck that followed. The list is probably too long to list in this short article but by October his kidneys had failed, he was on dialysis three times a week, receiving nutriti

Depression: Heal it with Qi and Dao

Originally published on Dr. Aihan Kuhn's Website Heal it with Qi and Dao Being a holistic doctor for so many years, I have seen many patients suffering with depression. Depression has become an epidemic in our modern world. Suicide from depression has become more and more frequent. Why? It seems it does not make sense when we have more of everything. But, it does make sense, because we lost many fundamentals in our modern world. What are the fundamentals? Let’s think back to past years and what made us happy: delicious homemade foods, family often getting together, friends often getting together, no need to worry about jobs, happy to live with basic necessities, helping each other when neede
