Get an in-depth look at the one principle you need to take care of your health in Change Your Energy founder Ilchi Lee’s new book, Water Up Fire Down: An Energy Principle for Creating Calmness, Clarity, and a Lifetime of Health
This principle describes energy circulation in the body, as uncovered by thousands of years of study in Asian medicine. Ilchi Lee has taught this principle throughout his 40-year career, and it forms the basis of the mind-body methods he’s developed.
What is this one principle?
Keep your head cool and your belly warm.
How can this simple idea affect your health? Think about how you feel when you’re “cool-headed.” You’re calm and able to think clearly, right? You’re not stressed, and you don’t reach for a tub of ice cream in a haze of anxiety and worry. You’re able to make plans and rational decisions, and find better solutions to the challenges you face.
What about when you have a “fire in your belly”? What characteristics does that common saying bring to mind? You may think of being passionate, ready for action, and overflowing with energy and vitality.
When your gut is warm, it’s also relaxed, so good can move through your intestines more easily. Your blood vessels dilate and your blood circulates better, making your hands and feet warm and bringing nutrients to the rest of the body more quickly. Your immunity also increases at higher core temperatures, and you have healthier gut flora.
Overall, keeping a cool head and a warm belly means maintaining the balance in your body and mind so that they can face all the stresses and challenges life throws at us while staying healthy.
Water Up Fire Down
shows you how to do this. In it, Ilchi Lee brings out his signature qigong, breathing, and visualization exercises to help you make the right energy flow for a cool head and warm belly. He keeps it simple, so you can immediately understand and apply the ideas and exercises to your daily routine.
