Obesity: How energy blockages can affect obesity
Happy 2019 to you all from Master Oh, we hope that everyone has a happy and healthy year. This week sees the return of National Obesity Week, which is fast becoming one of the great public health issues of our time. The week is intended to raise awareness of the disease and hope that communities come together to help each other support their health and wellbeing. Master Oh is committed to helping others find health and happiness and there are a few simple and positive things that we can all do to help ourselves. This blog aims to raise awareness, help those with this disease and show how energy blockages as well as diet can also affect obesity.
Firstly, let’s look at the facts. Currently in the UK, 1 in 3 adults are obese. This represents a phenomenal 380% increase over the last 30 years given that only 8% of adults were obese in 1980. According to a recent report, at the current trend, about 50% of the UK adult population will be obese by 2050. More worrying is that in children, we are seeing extreme rises in the rates of obesity.
Obesity is caused simply by an imbalance between energy intake and energy expenditure. The average adult needs about 2000kCal/day and the body stores any excess intake over this. Continued excess calories input over time results in obesity. High calorie, mass-produced/convenient food, along with over-large food portions, is to blame. Additionally, the increase in sedentary lives and a reduction in exercise contribute to the issue.
Health Consequences of Obesity
Every year, as many as 30,000 people die prematurely from obesity-related conditions, with some experts now warning that obesity is responsible for more ill health than smoking. Being significantly overweight or obese is linked to a wide range of health problems, including:
- Cancers (e.g. breast, liver and prostate)
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Liver disease and liver cancer
- Pancreatitis and possible pancreatic cancer
- Snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea
- Stress, anxiety, and depression
- Regarding the liver, obesity is now the commonest cause of chronic liver disease in the UK.
How energy blockages can affect obesity
There are many causes of energy blockages within the body. Our bodies react to certain situations such as stress, relationships, loss and bereavement, but we also react to external blockages caused by toxins in food, environmental pollution and other chemicals.
Our human energy is affected by exposure to an excess accumulation of toxins absorbed into the body from the air we breathe, the water we drink and the unhealthy food we eat. We then use our energy to trying to rid these toxins rather than focusing on the healthy functioning of our body. Over time, this leads to feelings of depleted energy, low mood and other diseases such as obesity. Below are a couple of causes which could link obesity to blocked energy:
When we are overworked or overtired, when we eat at irregular times or when we crave sugary or processed foods, we can deplete our energy levels and build up toxins, tension and blocked energy in the body. Blocked energy can affect our digestion, absorption of nutrients and elimination, affecting our health.
Energy blockages can be caused by physical and emotional energy patterns passed down through the generations of the family. Essentially, we believe that people’s energy can be affected by the history and energy of their family. So could obesity be a disease which can passed down through the generations? We inherit our physical features through our genetic make-up, but in the energy system emotional patterns, ancestor’s life experiences, memories, pain, health issues and even addictions can be imprinted and carried forward to future generations. We may be born with weaknesses in our energy system inherited from our ancestors that can have a significant impact on our physical and mental wellbeing.
We are not surprised to see that people are increasingly interested in researching their family history to see how their lives have been shaped by previous generations and this can also include the impact on our health and wellbeing.
How Master Oh can help
Qi is the body’s vital energy, which travels around the body through a network of energy channels. According to Eastern medicine it is the natural flow of Qi which determines the state of our health and wellbeing.
Overtime, problems can develop with the body’s energy circulation – energy levels can drop, energy channels can be blocked or the energy itself can become toxic. This leaves the body more prone to illness or injury, and less able to recover if problems arise. Correcting the circulation of human energy enables long-terms healing to take place.
The energy you receive during a treatment with Master Oh or through Qi classes helps to open energy blockages and remove stagnant toxins, improving the circulation and boosting the immune system. Having a treatment is a great way to open deep-seated energy blockages quickly. From there, Master Oh recommends changing our patterns to support the healthy flow of Qi throughout the body by following a balanced diet and taking regular exercise.
Resolving spiritual energy blockages
The Ancestor Healing Programme run at our Centres, addresses this crucial but not well-understood aspect of human life by healing these inherited patterns, and freeing us from their influence. The programme is a profound and spiritual experience to clear inherited energy patterns that can affect our life, wellbeing and relationships.
Master Oh is a London-based energy healer and natural health practitioner with more than 25 years’ experience working with the original energy that creates life, which is Qi energy. Having himself suffered and overcome chronic issues at an early age, he has dedicated his life to sharing his healing method with the world.
He has opened Qi centres in Australia, America and Europe, and is constantly looking to help more people live free from physical, emotional and mental pain. Master Oh believes that by developing our innate good-hearted, generous and compassionate nature we can not only bring health and happiness into our lives, but also bring peace and harmony into our world.
