6 tricks that made the Japanese the healthiest nation in the world

Katsuzo Nishi argued that everything that a person needs for health is inherent in ourselves, the main thing is not to succumb to laziness and reveal our potential

Curiously, most Japanese people believe that a crooked neck is one of the first signs of a short life.

The Japanese engineer and aikido master Katsuzo Nishi was very sick from childhood. His attending physician told his parents that the boy would not even make it to 20 years old. To strengthen his health, his parents sent Katsuzo to a monastery, where he spent 3 years.

Looking for ways to improve his health, Nishi read not only many books by modern doctors, but also ancient treatises on Eastern and European medicine. The result of many years of work was the work of Katsuzo, in which he describes the system of healing the body he created. The work was published in 1927, when the author was 44 years old.

For 90 years, the author has gained many fans around the world, we invite you to familiarize yourself with his unique techniques.

1. Hard bed

Curvature of the spine, which is not such a rare occurrence, can lead to various diseases of the internal organs. Therefore, you need to monitor your posture and posture not only during the day, but also at night.

Nishi believed that a straight spine makes a person a couple of centimeters taller, and also positively affects the work of the digestive organs.

2. A solid roller instead of a pillow

Curiously, most Japanese people believe that a crooked neck is one of the first signs of a short life.

During sleep, it is difficult for us to control the position of our neck, therefore Nishi recommends replacing the usual pillow with a solid roller, which will lie in such a way that the 3rd and 4th vertebrae will be on it.

This will cause discomfort at first, so wrap the roller with something soft, removing these layers over time.

3. Exercise “Goldfish”

Lie on a flat, hard surface. Stretch your arms up.

Position your feet so that they are perpendicular to the floor. Extend your left heel forward and at the same time pull your left hand up without lifting it off the floor. Repeat for the right heel and right arm. The entire exercise takes 2 minutes.

Next, put your palms on top of each other, bend your elbows and place them under the 3rd and 4th cervical vertebrae, bring your legs together, and slightly spread your feet to the sides. Move your feet left and right so that your whole body vibrates. Do the exercise for 2 minutes.

4. Improving capillary circulation

Lie on a firm, level surface. Place a hard roller under the 3rd and 4th cervical vertebrae.

Raise your arms and legs up, bend them slightly and relax them at the elbows and knees.

Begin to vibrate your arms and legs. Do all this for 1-3 minutes.

5. Closing the feet and palms

Lie on a hard surface and place a hard roller under the 3rd and 4th cervical vertebrae. Bend your legs at the knees without lifting them off the floor, and close your feet. The exercises must be repeated 10 times.

Place your palms perpendicular to your body and squeeze the pads of your left and right hands. Repeat the same movements, but now close not only your fingers, but also your palms. Without opening your palms, raise your hands up and lower them to your solar plexus.

Turn your closed palms with your fingers towards your face, put your hands behind your head without changing the position of your palms, and then return them to the solar plexus.

6. Belly and spine

Sit on the floor in the lotus position and grasp the ankle of the “upper” leg with your hands, lower your shoulders. Repeat all the exercises 10 times. After each block of exercises, do the following: extend your arms in front and place your palms perpendicular to the floor.

Turn your head to your left shoulder and look at your back, repeat this with your right shoulder. Do the same with your arms raised above your head.

Katsuzo Nishi argued that everything that a person needs for health is inherent in us, the main thing is not to succumb to laziness and reveal our potential.
