Acupuncture (Real Life)
Acupuncture is an important part of traditional Chinese medicine. It has been used for thousands of years to treat illness and pain, using thin needles throughout the body. To be a great practitioner of acupuncture takes years of study and practice. People who like acupuncture see their practitioner regularly for treatments to help with their medical problems.
While some people are skeptical of its benefits, many are convinced that acupuncture is relaxing. Even if a person does not have a medical problem, she might want treatments when she’s feeling stressed. Other people believe that acupuncture is important for one’s good health. It is a practice that is used around the world by millions of people.

The Flu (Real Life)
Sore throat. Aches. Sudden fever. Most of us have experienced the symptoms of this well-known disease: the flu. For many healthy people, having the flu may be nothing more than a temporary inconvenience. But for others, including children, the elderly, and those with health problems, getting the flu is no laughing matter. For people at risk, the flu can be deadly.
Because getting the flu can be so serious, health officials urge people to get vaccinated for the flu. These officials hope to prevent flu epidemics and pandemics. But not everybody feels comfortable getting vaccinated. Some people are afraid of how the vaccine might affect their health. Listen to Sara and Lily share their thoughts about the flu and the flu vaccine in this health English lesson. -- View this and other great English lessons at www.englishbaby.com
Working Out (Real Life)
Do you like running? How about going for long walks? Or maybe you are more into lifting weights. No matter what you do, working out is an important part of staying healthy.
There are many different ways to work out. Some people want to get really big muscles, so they go to the gym and pump iron. Other people are more casual and just want to get a little definition. These people usually just want to get fit, so they do things like go for a hike. It’s always good to get up and move instead of just sit and watch TV.
