The body’s self-healing power comes from the body’s Yang Qi. Adequate Yang Qi leads to longevity, while insufficient Yang Qi can lead to all kinds of diseases. This self-healing power is your body’s ability to repair itself by use of its inner life force, and it provides the most benefits to your immune system. This healing power can remedy 70 percent of all maladies without relying on external means. Self-healing is a natural ability, but nowadays, many people’s bodies are in a sub-healthy state. As a result, a small problem can take a long time to heal and may even require medication. This self-healing ability has a significant impact on health. Try the following 6 ways to improve it.

How to strengthen self-healing power

1. Do less harm to your self-healing power

Self-healing is innate, but why do some people see a decline in their self-healing power? Such people do things that counter their self-healing power, such as smoking, drinking, having a poor diet, relying on medicine when they feel just a little ill, being inactive, etc. The more they do these things, the more they hurt their self-healing power, making it become less and less capable.

To enhance your self-healing power, you should drink a sufficient amount of water every day. Water nourishes the cells, improves metabolism, and helps detoxify the body, which benefits self-healing. An adult should drink 6 cups of water every day.

3. Get enough sleep

During sleep, the body can be repaired and immunity improved, putting your self-healing power into a higher state. A study found that people who slept only four hours a day were 50 percent less able to fight off the flu than those who slept for eight hours. For your body to be in a healthy state and to strengthen its self-healing power, it is important to get enough sleep.

4. Proper diet

Diet influences not only your figure, but also your health. To improve your immunity and strengthen your self-healing power, it is important to have a balanced diet. Eat more fruits and vegetables to replenish vitamins and minerals, and eat meat and staple foods in moderation to replenish protein. With a balanced intake of nutrients, your body will be able to obtain sufficient energy so that self-healing can be strengthened.

5. Plenty of exercise

Exercise can enhance physical fitness, reduce stress, and improve sleep, which has many benefits for the body. Exercise can also improve cardio-respiratory capacity and improve heart function. If you can make a habit of exercising at least three times a week, your self-healing power can be strengthened. If you are unable to exercise three times a week, take a walk for at least 20 minutes a day.

6. Stay optimistic

A person who is in a good mood and optimistic may find that a problem that would have been difficult to treat slowly gets better on its own. This shows the importance of a cheerful mood for self-healing. Having an optimistic and cheerful spirit and maintaining a happy mood make the environment in the body harmonious, allowing the self-healing power to be strengthened.

By improving self-healing, the body becomes healthier, which contributes to a longer life.
