Before coming to China I never gave much thought to natural medicine remedies. I always just believed that since and pills was what was needed to keep one healthy. However, China has shown me there are many different ways to keep ones self healthy in many ways not requiring drugs or pills. One thing I learned was how important your feet are in regards to your entire body. I'd heard of this before but just thought it was ridiculous. I changed my mind though after we got our foot massages while in Beijing and felt amazing afterwards. While in Tianjin we were walking around these fountains and say some people walking barefoot and these smooth rocks. Shaofan and Ka explained that walking on these stones hit many of the pressure points on your feet. Another Chinese medical tip was tea. Before coming to China if someone had told me how healthy tea was for you I wouldn't have believed you. After all the tea we drank in China I know believe that it has very positive effects on your health. We learned how different teas are good for energy, your eyes from staring at computer screens, toxins like smoke and alcohol, and stress. We also learned how you can open your eyes over steaming tea and the moisture from the steam is healthy for your eyes. One of the tea shops we went to even had a demonstration on how effective tea is at cleaning out toxins from your body. After my experience in China I have a much better appreciation for alternate forms of medicine and finding new ways to take better care of my body.
