Another very satisfactory video course review given by learners enrolled to my video courses.
I suppose most students like the logical presentation of Autism from historical development by the western medicine till now, and how Ancient Wisdom presents a holistic and integrated logical framework to understand and offer solution action on Autism.
This analysis starts from the personality of the person concerned, then relates to the person’s physiology and behaviors. Some suggestion on the balancing is made.
Bipolar Disorder symptoms : (a swing between the following)
Low energy, no drive. No interest in things, depression. View the external environment as negative and suppress such negativity, till like inflated balloons, raptures and bursts into manic stage.
High energy, excessive drive with many tasks and projects, not coherent, without good rationale, and behaviors can be towards negative extremes (can often cause harm to self and others), until exhaustion and swing into a lower energy stage..
Client : Female, Birthdate xx-xx-xxxx.
Personality is derived from the birthdate with the following attributes. For those interested to know more about personality analysis, please refer to the video course on “A Single Window to Personality, Emotions & Physiology”.
Key personality attributes
The client shows these behaviors. During childhood witnessed “imperfect family setting”, hold the fear and anger till now, most often suppressed, till reaching an depressive stage then to explosive stage.
 Instability, dislike routine life
With perfectionism in mind, routine life is not only boring but depressing. Hold and suppress till depression and later bursting into manic behaviors.
 Freedom without constraints
During the Bipolar high energy stage, excessive unrestrained freedom results in uncontrolled negative behaviors.
 Emotions and Sensitivity
The female client has high needs for love and care, but often feels emotional and is sensitive to others’ behaviors or remarks.
The above manifestation of personality can also be correlated to body physiology, particularly the key organs functionalities as per the ancient wisdom. (For those who want to know the details, please refer to the video courses on ancient wisdom.)
Heart Organ Functionalities.
The ancient wisdom says, Heart holds overall Consciousness. 心主神明。
The client shows imbalanced heart organ functionalities due to her perfectionism mindset and imbalanced emotions and sensitivities.
Spleen Organ Functionalities.
The ancient wisdom says, Spleen in charge of thinking and analysis. 脾主思。
Spleen as per 5-Element Theory is represented by Earth. Earth is supposed to signify stability, like mother-earth. But the client has imbalanced Spleen organ functionalities, as she dislikes stability, dislike routine life, dislike building up disciplined foundation.
Such dislikes are held within till reaching an explosive high energy bipolar stage.
The client’s thinking capability is negatively affected by heart organ functionalities imbalances, hence the client often can be irrational, in thinking and behaviors.
Kidneys Organ Functionalities.
The ancient wisdom says, Kidneys are like Hercules, with enormous strength and will-power. 肾如大力士，肾主志。
In the High Energy Bipolar stage, the client will demonstrate high strength with strong determination to achieve the current targets, which can be of variety, and can change during next Bipolar phase, meaning the client does not have long term compelling vision in life to guide her during both low energy and high energy bipolar phases.
The sources of imbalances are from Yin Yang imbalance of the Heart, Spleen and Kidneys as dictated by the personality attributes.
The implementation of the high energy bipolar is by Liver organ functionalities, but Liver imbalance is due to the above mentioned organs imbalances as the source of the problems.
We cannot change personality, as personality was built-in at birth. But we can learn to Balance our Personality and Emotion, as per the following suggestions.
Since making personality balancing takes a long period of time, such a Life Cultivation 养生 method should be carried out daily and consistent, not expecting instant results.
Using Food therapy.
Food Therapy is to restore the balance of organs Yin Yang functionality as per ancient wisdom. Hence Food Therapy is NOT western nutrition method, which will do more harm to the client.
2. Qi Exercises
Qi exercises are specific to facilitate the Qi movement of the organs e.g. Heart, Spleen and Kidneys. Hence Qi exercises are NOT the western exercises concept with strength and sweating, which will do more harm to the organ functionalities.
3. Emotional Freedom Technique
Practice more EFT based on the understanding of this analysis report. Releasing negative emotions e.g. Fear and Anger. (Refer video course for more details.)
4. Consciousness Practices.
Consciousness practice is also mindfulness practice, daily, 365 days a year, year after year. Mindful of every thought, every emotion, every behavior and action, food intake, types of exercises, how such activities affect the Qi, hence affect the balance or imbalance of the organs functionality.
Practice more Stillness during the high energy bipolar stage.
Practice more Qi movement exercises during the low energy bipolar stage.
5. Development of Meaningful Compelling Vision in Life
Developing and cultivating meaningful compelling vision in life, with daily practices, is essential. Such vision will guide the behaviors and activities during both low energy and high energy bipolar stages.
This is the 5th occasion I say permanent goodbye to my loved ones in the last few years.
The loved ones died before their aging ages.
Many friends send condolences messages to me and the following is a typical conversation.
Friend X : “Andrew I am sorry to hear of the passing of your loved one. I pray that all his loved ones are comforted during this time of grief. RIP. God bless”
My reply : “Thanks for your condolences. He suffered enormous pain after surgical procedure in the hospital.”
Friend X : “Yes, sad to hear. Was he a hepatitis carrier or was he a heavy alcohol drinker?”
My reply : “My dear friend, I think you have posed some wrong questions. It is because many hepatitis carriers or alcohol drinkers or cancer patients etc. don’t die.”
Indeed many people think that if so and so died of cancers, or some diseases, then the answer is obtained, implying the person died due to the mentioned diseases.
But as we look closer, many people with the same diseases do not die, they continue to live, though with some suffering, till their aging ages.
Today western science and western medicine do not, and cannot offer a comprehensive explanation why some patients die before aging ages. They simply have no clues.
Even if they can come up with some scientific explanation, such explanation cannot be used by the living to ensure good healing or preventing such diseases.
This is where ancient wisdom makes a huge difference. Ancient Wisdom has coherent holistic integrated theory to explain health, diseases issues, and the same set of theories can be used for healing and more importantly guide people to live a healthy life without having such diseases.
It is sad that many of these departed loved ones did not allow themselves to be exposed to the ancient wisdom.
It is my hope, others, who are living today, can be open minded to explore what exactly is the ancient wisdom, which is based on a book, called “Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic”, some 3000 years ago in China.
For those who are curious, wanting to know, you are welcome to the following video courses.
We will continue our discussion on diabetes, liver tumor, liver cirrhosis.
Western medicine offers different treatments for the above. Western nutrition also offers different diet control therapy for the above, e.g. reverse diabetes diet therapy.
All these are carried out by different medical specialists, different nutritionists with different proposed solutions.
They all claim many patients have good improvement results.
Each of them will argue from their own Logical viewpoints, with research done based on Scientific approach. But more often than not, they conflict with each other, and these specialists do not agree among themselves.
Patients who listen to any of these specialists will feel convinced by their respective logic and scientific evidence. Hence they follow all the different specialists’ instructions.
Both the specialists and patients have respective objectives in mind, achieve optimal insulin level, no more recurrence of liver tumor, less hardening of liver, with the assumption that if all these KPIs indicators are achieved, health is achieved.
Hence a patient who unfortunately suffers all the three : diabetes, liver tumor, liver cirrhosis, will undergo different sets of medication, or if they choose diet control methods, different diet therapies.
The patient may also have other issues, e.g. high cholesterol, high uric acid, some significant cancer markers, and many other emerging and worrying health indicators.
The patient is juggling with so many specialists’ interventions.
Who can be a skillful juggler who can really achieve health?
This is the result of western medical philosophy – treating the body as a machine with parts to be managed by different specialists.
This pattern appears to be similar to the process of democratic countries like the United State of America.
Each specialist-president champions his or her method to save the country or make America great again. After 4 years, another specialist president with a different solution.
This is different from the communist China approach. Only one party with only a specialist-president chosen for long term based on grass root democratic election and very stringent selection based on meritocracy. This enables single focused direction with constant reforms to solve fundamental problems, which cannot be done based on 4-year term government with changes in policies when a new government takes over.
Americans, like patients, suffer different specialist-presidents’ treatments.
What then is the Medical and Health Philosophy of the ancient wisdom, Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic (YEIC) ?
First it is an integrated, holistic approach, not separate fragmented approaches.
Whatever treatment (herbs), food therapy (not nutrition theory), Qi exercises, balancing emotions and personality, aim to enable Qi flow, and aim at restoration of healthy functioning of the organs (e.g. Liver, Kidneys, Spleen, Lungs and Heart), never just focus on one organ e.g. Liver.
When all organs function well with good coordination with each other, and Qi flow is enabled, heath is achieved.
When you understand how YEIC can help to achieve a total well being of a human, you will also understand what it takes to govern a nation towards prosperity for all citizens.

Diabetes is a common disease and hence it is always a hot topic.
From the western medicine perspective, there are many different types of medication, different types of treatments and different types of therapies for different types of diabetes.
We will limit our discussion to Type 2 diabetes and Reverse Diabetes therapy.
Type 2 diabetes is a common condition that causes the level of sugar (glucose) in the blood to become too high. It can cause symptoms like excessive thirst, needing to pee a lot and tiredness. It can also increase your risk of getting serious problems with your eyes, heart and nerves.
Control or regulation of sugar (glucose) in the blood is carried out by insulin hormone. Logically, de-functioning of insulin contributes to diabetes.
Sugar (glucose) comes from the foods taken. By such a statement, western medicine implies that food intake is a contributing factor to diabetes.
From the above proposition, the conclusion is the need to control food intake, and insulin level in the blood by medication or diet.
Reverse Diabetes therapy is through diet changes and weight loss, you may be able to reach and hold normal blood sugar levels without medication.
Western medicine keeps emphasizing that there is no cure to diabetes, meaning Reverse Diabetes therapy is a control measure, not complete cure.
Just based on the above conclusion made by the western medicine, we can have a good discussion from the ancient wisdom, Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, perspectives.
Why western medicine often say, there is no complete cure to diabetes? Similarly, there is no cure to Parkinson, no cure to Autism, no cure Autoimmune disorders etc. ?
As per many discussion in my video courses, the reason is western medicine does not focus on the actual root causes, but focus on immediate mechanics that is associated with the diseases, e.g. diabetes, factors such as insulin level out of balance, food intake that eventually contributes to high sugar contents in the blood.
It is obvious that if medical professionals do not focus on the original root causes, logically there is no chance to find a complete cure.
It is obvious that if medical professionals only focus on the immediate mechanics that are associated with diabetes, i.e. insulin and food intake, then the best result is just control, but not cure.
Ancient wisdom will address diabetes problems in a holistic and integrated manner.
Some key questions to be addressed are
What organ function is responsible to produce the optimal level of insulin to convert food to glucose?
In what ways can such organ function be affected by other organs-functionalities?
What particular factors affect the said organ functionalities out of balance?
The organ function for optimal level of insulin is Spleen (inclusive of pancreas) . As per ancient wisdom, Spleen is responsible for converting food into Qi Blood, i.e. internally generated nutrients for the body and energy for activities, which include what western medicine called glucose.
You can have excessive sweat foods that harm the Spleen function.
You can also have damaged or out of balance Spleen function that is not able to even convert low sugar content foods to glucose. Hence, in this case, it is not the food intake issue. It is the Spleen function itself.
Unlike western medicine which sees the body as a machine with parts to be managed, ancient wisdom sees all parts, organs, tissues etc as interconnected and inter-related.
For example, eye function is related to Liver function. If Liver function is out of balance, it affects the eye function and Spleen function, which affects production of Qi Blood, insulin and glucose.
Then the source of the diabetes is the Liver Function out of balance.
Spleen function can also be affected by out of balance Heart function, Lungs function, Kidneys function beside out of balance Liver function.
What then can cause these organ functions to be out of balance?
Ancient wisdom makes specific correlation, unlike western medicine which often offers vague and general suggestions e.g. good lifestyle, exercise, diets.
Using the examples of the above mentioned Spleen function out of balance and Liver function out of balance.
In the case of Spleen function out of balance, it can be caused by wrong food intake for the Spleen, by excessive thinking and worries, lack of Qi exercise for the Spleen Meridian etc.
In the case of Liver function out of balance, which affects the eyes and also affects Spleen functionality, it can be caused by wrong food intake for the Liver, anger emotions or suppressed emotions, excessive drive in performance, lack of Qi exercise for the Liver Meridian etc.
From the above, you can see that different diabetes patients have different sources of problems. There can be no balanced food intake for different organs, can be worries for some, anger for others, etc.
Food intake for different organs is an ancient wisdom food therapy concept. Western nutrition theory does not address what foods for what organ functions.
Ancient wisdom never says there is no cure for diseases, but emphasizes on total balancing, which is called Yin Yang balancing. If you have the knowledge and daily practice in balancing, then you live a complete healthy life.
The above is just a brief illustration of a holistic and integrated approach by ancient wisdom. For those who are seriously interested, welcome to join the video courses with internet links below.
A young man, 30+ years old, feels at a loss, that there is no meaning in life, about 4 weeks ago. He has no more motivation and that affects various aspects of his life. This is in spite of current work being rather satisfactory.
This is the start of the coaching session.
From some of his particulars I gathered before the coaching. I was able to make some analysis of his personality. I need to pose some coaching questions to him, to get feedback to confirm my analysis of his personality, that may be contributing to his current challenges.
Hence, it is important to ask powerful and relevant coaching questions during the limited 2 hours coaching session.
Why 4 weeks till now, he feels loss in meaning in life and no motivation to move forward? He said, he has no clues. There were no negative incidents 4 weeks ago.
He has worked 8 years, with change in jobs 4 times. All the jobs are of different nature. He has two jobs overseas in different countries.
He has been 4 years in this current job.
In work, he has some high expectations. In reality, he cannot have them fulfilled.
In work and relationship with partners, he has some dis-satisfaction with negative feelings, yet he cannot pinpoint what are the negativities, nor can he relate to particular negative incidents.
From his memory since young, he likes and enjoys most when with family members in happy times. He is much inclined to emotions.
From his response to many above coaching questions, I get confirmation about the main parts of his personality.
I requested him to imagine he is in deep negative emotions, even with exaggeration. He chose anger against someone, though he could not identify who. He said he had 7 out of 10 anger, in a scale of 0 to 10. Through a quick therapy, I managed to lower his anger from 7 to 4.
In terms of his physiology, he often has stomach upset, with frequent diarrhea. He often sweats at night during sleep. His palm sweats. His hands and legs are cold. He likes pungent food. And he drinks water a lot (hot and cold), and his urine is water-like.
Although he sleeps throughout the night. He does not feel energetic and good motivation for the second day.
From the above information gathered, I help to make analysis for him the source of the problems he is facing. The key point is that he is unaware of the fact that he is being controlled by his own personalities. At the same time, such personalities and behaviors affect his body system, in terms of the organs functionalities. Hence the personalities, psychology and the physical body system affect each other iteratively. And I explain how the many physical symptoms are arising from such interaction.
He is most surprised that he understands what is the source of the problem and from my explanation, he gets the ideas how to do balancing to his physiology and personalities.
I introduce to him my video courses on the discussion we have with more details on the underlying theories as per the ancient wisdom, and the many actions he can take to do the balancing through food therapy, activating the Qi flow. I also explained briefly the importance of the concept of Qi-Blood, how Qi-blood affects the various symptoms he experiences and his thought pattern and behaviors.
The key video course for his particular case is the following
A Single Window to Personality, Emotions and Physiology
Food Therapy and Body Constituents
Meridians, Qi exercises & Many Self-help healing methods.
Organs Functionalities – What western medicine does not know
Five Element Theory (Building relationship of parts for Holism)
There are several other video courses he can enroll in if he is further interested. The video courses are as per the following links.
A Zoom chatting with a friend, middle age, regarding some of his health challenges.
He is putting on weight. He sleeps late. Not feeling energetic every morning upon waking. Hair thinning. Feeling itchiness at various parts of the body, not at a fixed place. Feels life is a routine, not feeling spirited.
He asked for my opinions about recommended food-supplement from a friend for his weight issue?
Through Zoom chatting more information is gathered of his lifestyle.
For many years he practiced vigorous exercises at the gym, one and a half hours per practice with much sweeting. He does not have the habit of wiping off the sweat with dry cloth.
I share the following based on the ancient wisdom, Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic.
Body heat generated results in sweating, and sweat pores open up and allow cold air trapped in the body. Trapped cold air moves with blood circulation and creates some obstruction to blood circulation.
This produces itchiness here and there, not at a fixed place.
Late hour sleep habit, implies Qi Blood is used to support whatever night activities, and the blood does not get detoxified by the liver, this affects the blood quality, e.g. blood contains more toxin, may have blood stasis problem.
This may also contribute to itchiness problems.
I further explain the Qi-Blood concept which is a powerful concept.
Late hours sleep affects the gallbladder not able to store sufficient bile for next day food digestion.
Then it is not so much about food-supplement, but organs functionalities out of balance.
I further explained Liver and Gallbladder Organ-clock duty roster timing which is during his night activities hours.
All hair health issues, e.g. thinning, hair drop, hair turns grey even at young age, are due to Kidneys functionalities out of balance. Kidneys functions are also affected by Liver and Gallbladder functions.
Not feeling spirited or motivated can be related to Heart Functionalities out of balance, which can also be affected by Liver, Gallbladder, Kidneys, Lungs and Spleen functionalities, as per the 5-Element Theory.
I advised my friend that the above is just a brief based on some information about his lifestyle he shared with me. The information is by far not complete. For example, what about his food intake, personality, emotions?
Hence it is more useful for him to take the video courses on ancient wisdom, so that he can make his own detailed diagnosis of his health issues, carrying out his own balancing action plan.
