1) After about 6 weeks or so of Tai Chi for Health (Arthritis plus), I had decided to quit because I wasn't gaining anything other than tingling at the ends of my fingers.
2) Then things began happening:
A) 1st I noticed my knees weren't creeking when I had to crawl under a sink at work to replace soap.
2nd my knees didn't hurt so much going down hill or down stairs
B) Tingling of my fingers moved into my hands
C) Body temp. going up; noticed it when I went to bed at night and while working (ed. note: Ellen said that she was always very very cold before)
D) Feet are getting hot
E) Flat stomach, "due to nerves quieting down". Helps me eat some foods I haven't been able to.
F) More postive attitude which to me indicates better brain activity.
I practice Tai Chi at least twice a day and sometimes 3 or 4 times. Of course now I'm sticking with it and learning more moves and trying to improve on the moves I've learned so far.

WOW! Are you as inspired by this as I am???? I wish you all were there to see how excited she was. Ellen was experiencing all the health benefits that clinical studies demonstrated when people practiced daily. I don't know about you, but I 'm stepping up my program!
