Life is made up of breaths -- a certain number of breaths. The longer the breaths, the longer you may live; rodents have the shortest lifespan because they have the shortest breaths in the animal kingdom. To live long, you need to breathe right. Correct breathing provides more oxygen to your lungs, and hence nourishes your body organs and tissues.


Correct body posture enhances not only your body image but also your lung functioning, and hence your breathing.

Body fitness has to do with the right numbers

Weight measurements

Waist size: Measure waist circumference (between  rib cage and above belly button). A waistline of 35 inches or more for most women, and a waistline of 40 inches or more for most men indicate an increased health risk for developing chronic diseases and disorders.

Body Mass Index (BMI): It is a measure of body fat based on body weight and height:

BMI is determined by the formula: BMI = (body weight in pounds) divided by (body height in inches x body height in inches) multiplied by (703).

To illustrate, if you are 5’11” tall and you weigh 165 pounds, your BMI will be: (165/71x71) x 703 = 23

The BMI numbers have the following implications:

Any BMI that falls between 19 and 24.9 is considered ideal and healthy.

Any BMI that is below 18.5 is considered underweight.

Any BMI that ranges from 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight.

Any BMI that is above 30 is considered obese.

Blood Pressure

Normal blood pressure is 138/85. Your ideal blood pressure is 120/80. You may have high blood pressure when readings of 140/90 occur over an extended period.

Blood Sugar Levels

A normal fasting (no food for eight hours) blood sugar level is between 70 and 99 mg/dL

A normal blood sugar level two hours after eating is less than 140 mg/dL.

Cholesterol Levels

Keep total cholesterol below 200 milligrams per deciliter of blood, with LDL below 130 and HDL above 65.

Total cholesterol

Less than 200 mg/dL (Desirable)
200 - 239 mg/dL (Borderline high)
240 mg/dL and above (High)

LDL cholesterol

Less than 100 mg/dL (Optimal)
100 - 129 mg/dL (Near optimal)
130 - 159 mg/dL (Borderline high)
160 - 189 mg/dL (High)
190 mg/dL or above (Very high)

HDL cholesterol (higher is better)

Less than 40 mg/dL (Low)
More than 60 mg/dL (High)


Your body cells need balanced body chemistry for body fitness. They need a balanced acid-and-alkaline environment.

Acid and alkaline are substances that have opposing qualities. Your body functions at its best when the pH is optimum, which is slightly alkaline. The pH of your blood, tissues, and body fluids directly affects the state of your cellular health.

The pH scale ranges between one and fourteen. Seven is considered neutral. Anything below seven is considered acidic, while anything above seven is considered alkaline. Deviations above or below a 7.30 and 7.40 pH range can signal potentially serious and even dangerous symptoms that compromise body fitness.

When the body is too acidic, the tissues of cells are forced to relinquish their alkaline reserves, depleting them of alkaline minerals, which are the components of the tissues themselves. Over-acidification comes from: excess intake of foods containing great amounts of acid; insufficient elimination by the body through the kidneys (urination) and the skin (sweating); and unhealthy contemporary lifestyle.

Alkalizing foods contain little or no acid substances, and they do not produce acids when metabolized by your body.

Maintaining balanced body chemistry holds the key to overall body fitness.

Body fitness is absence of disease, pains and aches.

Avoiding Inflammation

Inflammation is an immure response to injury, toxins, allergy, infection, or any abnormality in the body, resulting in pain, redness, heat, and swelling in the affected areas. As a matter of fact, inflammation is the major cause of physical pain that is often a sign or precursor of disease.

Avoid inflammation through  a natural diet and balanced body chemistry.

Cleansing the Body

Regular exposure to toxins is the major source of inflammation, and the underlying cause of many diseases and disorders. Toxicity comes from the environment (the chemicals in the air, the water), the foods and drinks (especially processed ones), and pharmaceutical drugs. Cellular injury due to toxicity causes the formation of damaging free radicals, which results in the dysfunction and malfunction of body cells.

Detox the body on a regular basis through diet, exercise, and fast.

Protecting the Immune System

The immune system is an important body system that protects the body with antibodies (proteins) from foreign invaders (antigens in the form of bacteria, infections, and viruses) that cause human diseases and disorders.

“In recent years science has learned that the human immune system is much more complicated than we thought.” Dr. Philip F. Incao, M.D.

The human immune system is complicated in that it affects the whole body system in many different ways, in particular in preventing diseases. The malfunctioning of the immune system is the cause of autoimmune diseases (there are approximately one hundred autoimmune diseases, which are incurable according to Western medicine), including rheumatoid arthritis, myasthenia gravis and many others.

Building muscles is not just to enhance the body image. Building muscle mass helps strengthening connective tissues, which increases bone density to decrease the chance of getting osteoporosis later in life. Strengthening inactive muscles can improve body balance, especially among the elderly, to prevent falling that often compromises overall body fitness, Building muscles also help blood-sugar control, as well as natural sleep and mental health.

Strength training is not just about bodybuilders lifting weights in a gym. It can benefit people of all ages and may be particularly important for people with health issues such as arthritis or a heart condition. By stressing your bones, strength training increases bone density and reduces the risk of osteoporosis.


Addiction Free

Addiction free is the fundamental of a healthy lifestyle: no addiction to alcohol, nicotine, and pharmaceutical drugs.

Regular Exercise

Use it or lose it: muscles and strength. Different exercises may suit different people in different age range: qi gong, pilates, running, stretch exercises, tai chi, yoga.

Natural Sleep

Adequate natural sleep without sleep medication is the way to recover and rejuvenate the body, the mind, and the spirit. Visit Stephen Lau's web page: Sleep Health.
