Exercise, Aerobic and
Movement of the body - exercise -
creates a domino effect. Exercise fundamentally
changes and effects every system in your body.
Exercise is not about 'looking' good', it's about
staying alive, being healthy,
oxygenation and detoxing the body.
Basically, if you don't move your
body, you die.
Stretch, walk, skip, run, swim, bike - just
What is Exercise:
Definition - "Exercise is
physical activity that is planned, structured, and
repetitive for the purpose of conditioning any
part of the body. Exercise is used to improve
health, maintain fitness and is important as a
means of physical rehabilitation". - medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com
creates supplemental oxygen
and stimulates the lymphatic
system. The degree of physical activity
determines the extent of benefits and the impact to
the mind and body.
Movement activates circulation which drives blood
through the body, forcing oxygen and nutrition. The
lymph system, the body's sewage system which has no
pump, is also forced to work. Without
movement the lymph becomes stagnant and
you literally begin to
poison yourself over time.
daily physical movement the Lymphatic System
cannot detox your body. Aerobic exercise gives
oxygen to the tissues and moves the lymph around.
Lymph is a colorless fluid that bathes every cell
in the body. The body has two circulatory systems,
one for blood and the other for lymph. Blood is
circulated by the heart, whereas the lymph is
circulated by physical exercise. Many tissues
depend on the lymph to provide nutrients
(including oxygen) and carry off wastes. If the
lymph does not circulate then the tissues
suffocate while stewing in their own acidic waste
products (uric acid, lactic acid etc.)." - Extract from Acid and Alkaline Food.
The longer you
are sedentary, the sicker you become, disease sets
in. You feel miserable. You gain weight. You
experience pain daily. You begin to take drugs.
Then you take more drugs to counteract the initial
drugs. The cycle of disease predictably spins out
of control. You end up so dependent on the drugs,
you just don't care anymore, and you don't have
the energy to stop the cycle ... or do you?

- Reduction in the risk of coronary artery disease.
- Reduction in the risk of developing high blood
- Blood fat improvement - decrease LDL 'bad'
cholesterol and increase HDL 'good ' cholesterol.
- Reduction in risk of stroke - Improving blood fats
reduces plaques deposit in arteries.
- Reduction in risk of developing type 2 diabetes
- Weight control via exercise reduces chances of obesity
- which can lead to diabetes.
- Immune system activation - regular exercise wards
off susceptibility to viruses.
- Improved blood circulation.
- Build strong bones - reduces risk of osteoporosis.
- Change in mental and
emotional state - a change in physiology
immediately changes one's mood and focus.
- Boost natural life force energy known as Chi.
- Relief from muscle pain and fibromyalgia
- exercise stimulates the growth of tiny blood
vessels (capillaries) in the muscles. This enables
the body to deliver oxygen to the muscles more
efficiently and remove irritating metabolic waste
products, such as lactic acid.

What is Passive
Definition - Movement applied
to the body or a body part, by another person or
persons (physiotherapy), or via a motion machine.
When a passive range
of motion is applied, the body or body part (arm,
leg, head, ankle, wrist, knee), of the individual
receiving the passive exercise is completely
relaxed, while the outside force moves the body part
throughout the available range of motion. A
those who hate to exercise, those who are short on
time, those who prefer to exercise at home or on a
lunch-break, those who dislike the body being
stressed and jarred by more vigorous activity, those
who need to relax and de-stress, those who are
frail, sick, bedridden or elderly, and regardless of
weather conditions outside. No need to remove
clothing. No risk of injury.

1) Respiration is the
process by which an organism takes oxygen into its
body and then releases carbon dioxide from its body.
2) Aerobic Respiration:
Respiration that requires the presence of oxygen.
Aerobic exercise, the
foundation of health.
What is Aerobic
Definition - Exercise during
which oxygen is metabolized to produce energy.
sustained period of time, sometimes long in
duration, low in intensity - rhythmic and repetitive
for the purpose of conditioning or strengthening any
part of the body. Aerobic
means "with oxygen". Aerobic activity
continually supplies enough oxygen for the duration
of the activity.
Aerobic exercise conditions the heart, blood vessels
and cardiovascular system (lungs), increasing the
oxygen available to the body and by enabling the
heart to use oxygen more efficiently. Regular
aerobic exercise releases endorphins, the body's
natural painkillers - also induces an emotional
'high'. Increased oxygen and blood flow to the brain
creates mental focus. Stimulation of lymphatic system which
promotes elimination of metabolic waste and toxins.
rebounding, bicycling, brisk walking, dancing,
swimming, rowing, soccer, skating and cross country
Aerobic Activity is either Low
Impact or High Impact:
Low Impact - One foot always stays on the
floor and supports the weight of the body. e.g.
Walking, stair climbing.
High-impact - Include actions that take both
feet off the floor, thus causing more jarring of the
joints when the body weight hits the floor again.
e.g. Jumping, jogging, skipping
cause sore muscles due to lactic acid build up which
can be dissipated via passive aerobic exercise.
For those who want muscles.
- Anaerobic means "without
oxygen". Physical activity short in
duration, high in intensity.
General level of intensity is too great to allow
enough oxygen into the body to burn fat for energy.
The body then switches to burning stored fuels such
as glycogen and small amounts of carbohydrate stored
in muscles. Since we only store about 2 minutes
worth of anaerobic energy, anaerobic activity
usually lasts a short time or becomes stop and go as
we tire faster.
Anaerobic benefits determine how well a workout
strengthens and develops muscles.
Anaerobic activities includes weight lifting,
racquetball, downhill skiing, tennis, martial arts
There is no substitution for getting
your body up and moving daily via such activity as
walking, swimming, biking, jogging, hiking, tennis,
basketball or even lifting weights or walking a
treadmill in a gym. However, due to physical
challenges, illness, age limitations, time
restrictions and weather factors, many people simply
cannot or do not get their body moving everyday.
Many people spend their day commuting, working,
raising a family, sitting in front of a computer, or
TV, or sleeping. Are you one of them? Can you spare
5-10 minutes to relax and help your body and mind?
HTE's Sun Ancon Chi Machine, invented by Dr. Inoue,
creates specific motion energy,
just like a goldfish swimming. This passive aerobic
respiration exercise maintains and promotes health
and wellness of the mind and body, very simply and
very easily, with no risk of injury. Can be used
Health benefits for ages 4 to 100 yrs.
