The rapid progress in science and technology has led to fundamental changes in our perception of health, and preservation of it.
In order to stay healthy today, it is no longer enough to just prevent disease and injury. It’s about a holistic approach and integrating physical, mental and emotional well-being in order to achieve true quality of life.
TIENS products are designed to help restore the harmonious balance of the body.
Traditional Chinese culture offered the people of ancient China a unique understanding of the processes of life, health and disease. The methods used to fight disease have evolved over 5000 years into a comprehensive system of medicine, which is now known as ‘traditional Chinese medicine’ and a fundamental part of Chinese culture.
Are you one of the 80% of people that are ‘sub healthy’?
According to statistics from the World health Organisation (WHO), only 5% of people are healthy, 80% of people are not in good health, and 15% of people are considered unhealthy. This means the large proportion of people are ‘sub-healthy’ i.e. a state between good health and illness, and it’s a state that most people put up with without realising there’s anything wrong.
Being in good health means being free from illness, with normal body functions and a positive frame of mind. But people exhibiting sub-healthy conditions, if left unchecked, are at risk of becoming sick or suffering more chronic complaints.
We need to supplement and detox in order to give our bodies the right tools to cope with our modern lifestyles. Polluted water and air, foods grown in soils depleted of trace minerals and other ingredients needed for sound bodies and minds, and excessive stress, due to chemical, environmental, social, emotional and other factors, slowly erode and overwhelm our body's natural abilities to cope.
Natural remedies and supplements are helping millions of people, each and every day, reduce or eliminate their dependency on pharmaceutical drugs and improve their quality of life. Millions more are using supplements to replace the nutritional value lost in our highly processed foods. Now you, too, can boost the quality of your life with safe, gentle, natural alternatives Tiens offers..
Tiens combines vitamin and mineral supplements with anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory supplements, that are critical to maintain good health.
Our extensive range of Food Supplements are available in tablets, capsules, soft gels and liquid extracts.
Understanding Health Balance
According to Traditional Chinese healthcare culture, these are THE three components of balance :
Step 1 - Purification
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the first step to health is purification, or ridding the body of toxins. The human body often has to cope with unhealthy diets, physical and emotional stress, environmental pollutants, and different climates. These can all have the effect of increasing toxins in our body, like excessive cholesterol, fats, preservatives and artificial pigments, which can affect vital organs.
Modern diets means that sometimes we consume too much cholesterol and too little fruit and vegetables combined with insufficient exercise. This can lead to harmful substances being deposited in the blood vessels, which over time, can harden thus narrowing blood vessels and potentially inducing hypertension. Environmental pollution such as car exhaust fumes, heavy metals, computer and cell phone radiation are other contaminants symptomatic of contemporary living,
Purification is designed to help remove toxins from the digestive tract, blood vessels, lungs, skin and other channels so that organs can functionas normally as possible. Your TIENS’ representative can help devise a personal plan to meet your nutritional needs and the first part of your plan will focus on cleansing your body of harmful substances.
Step 2 - Replenishing
Balanced nutrition helps regulate the body’s system - just like a machine needs regular maintenance to run smoothly and prolong its life. Both Chinese and western health care agree on the importance of balanced nutrition for the body to keep it healthy and able to defend itself against illness, sub-health and the early onset of ageing.
Traditional Chinese health care maintains that when the body is properly assigned with the five elements in the cosmos, it will be balanced and stay healthy. If it’s out of balance, a major organ can become dysfunctional. The digestive system, circulatory system, respiratory system, urinary and endocrine system all interact with each other. One organ alone cannot perform all body functions and all must act in synergy to maintain harmony. If one organ dysfunctions, others will be affected directly or indirectly.
Step 3 - Strengthening
Besides detoxification and balancing nutrition, it’s also about supplying the body with supplements that encourage yin and yang to thrive, thus strengthening the immune system and activating self-healing powers.
It’s important to remember that nutritional supplements are not a replacement for a varied and balanced diet and exercise. TIENS’ products are based on a combination of ancient Chinese wisdom and 21st century nutrition technology. Your TIENS’ representative can help you sleep better and derive optimum benefit from the foods you do consume as well as find greater energy levels for exercise and manage stress impact more effectively.
Traditional Chinese Medicine promotes the stimulation and flow of energy ‘Qi’ through the channels in a body’s energy network to improve circulation, movement and overall quality of life. Reflexology, acupressure, acupuncture and massage have similar origins in Chinese medicine and share the concept of using pressure points on the body to relieve stress and promote the body’s ability to heal.
Tiens Wellness Equipment offers complementary therapy based on the ancient Eastern practice of stimulating certain regions on the feet, hands or ears associated with other organs within the body.
