Science or Miracle ?

Today, we talk about an ancient miraculous healer.

During the Spring and Autumn Warring States Period, the king of Qi State had a very strange and severe illness. He slept the whole day, very difficult to wake him up.

All the qualified doctors in the palace failed to cure him. Someone introduced a miraculous healer BianQue 扁鹊 from a village.

After examining, BianQue told the Queen and Prince that the King’s illness can be cured. But after curing the King will kill him.

The Queen and the Prince were astonished to hear that, : “Where is this truth, you have cured the king’s disease, surely he will not kill you!”

A few days later, BianQue chose a rainy day to come to the King. He did not use transport but walked in the rain and muddy road, without umbrella.

BianQue walked into the palace, and the King was still sleeping in the bed. BianQue climbed onto the bed, shaked the King violently, turned him over and continued to shake him, till he woke up a little, with his dirty hands and dress.

The King opened his eyes and saw a filthy man on his bed and his dirty hands all over. The King was totally mad and angry and immediately order the dirty man to be killed.

The Queen and the Prince begged the King for kindness and explained that this man was a healer. The King did not want to listen.

BianQue told the Queen and the Prince : “The King’s anger was activated and the illness is cured. There is no need any medicine for him. Since I have been rude to the King, I humbly requested to be put inside a big bell at the backyard ground, for me to die of suffocation slowly.”

The King agreed.

When the healer was placed inside the big bell, he started digging the ground soil at the peripheral of the bell, so that air can enter for him to breathe. Then he meditated quietly inside the bell.

Three day later, the King’s illness was fully cured. He remembered the healer and felt bad that he ordered him killed. He came to the bell and requested the bell to be lifted.

The King found that BianQue was alive and smiled calmly to the King.

The King, the Queen, the Prince and the rest were very puzzled and asked BianQue to explain.

“The King’s illness was due to excessive worries over the State’s matters. He felt stressed and he choose to bury the negativity in him. I used the strange method to trigger his anger, to help him to released the suppressed negative emotions.”

Do you think BianQue performed a miracle?

Actually not, it is based the the science and theory of Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic.

YEIC says “Spleen, one of the function is Thinking”, Excessive thinking and worries harm the Spleen. This causes no appetite to eat, and digestion problem, which could not produce adequate energy (Qi-blood) to nourish the body. Then the body is weak and tired. In the case of the King, he slept with no energy.

As per 5-element theory, Spleen is represented by Earth, and Liver is represented by Wood. The theory says that Wood controls Earth (imagine a land overgrown with too many trees, the soils get weakened). Then Liver Controls Spleen.

One of the Liver’s attributes is Anger. Then Anger is used to Control (heal) the Spleen with excessive worries and thinking.

This is how YEIC theories work.

Most people say that one should not be angry and it harms health. This is not entirely true, as it depends on circumstances.

If you train a child without anger, even being bullied. This can create more harm to the child as a whole.

Hope you appreciate the ancient wisdom more and more.

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the 2-day YEIC training class , or online training for learners outside Malaysia.

“Spleen, one of the functions is Thinking of the spleen 脾主思”, “Qi-blood 气血” “, “Spleen is represented by Earth 脾属土”, “Liver is represented by wood 肝属木” “Liver has anger attribute 肝主怒 “, “Wood Controls Earth 木克土”

New Wise Medical Theory cannot take Root!

In the previous article “Single Cause to Fire, Disease?”, we discussed modern medical philosopher, John Mackie and Carter advocated new medical theory that there is no single cause (e.g. virus) to disease like cancers, but there must be presence of other necessary conditions. And it is the body internal environment that is crucial.

This new perspective is very much in line with the 3000 years old Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic (YEIC) teaching, which elaborated more about body internal environment with regards to body organs functionalities 五脏六腑功能。

Why new medical theories, which are logical and make good sense are not accepted by the mainstream?

I think it is due to the following reasons.

  1. 200 years of Western Medicine development is step by step, bit by bit process, unlike 3000 years ago, YEIC came in a single book with all the holistic theory, which is not changed till today.

In the case of Western Medicine, when there is a new discovery, it may be subjected to much disagreement by other scientists.
Then we can see many ego in conflict, each wants to protect their own turf.

  1. Medical Institutions already produce a large number of doctors, whose mindsets are already being influenced, e.g. diseases caused by virus.

This becomes their belief system. Just like pre-Galileo’s time, all people believed the world was flat. Sailors dared not sail to the far end of the sea.
These are sincere doctors who want to serve people, not that they are greedy to squeeze patients’ money💰.

  1. Western drugs e.g. for cancers are supplied by very large pharmaceutical industries, which put in huge investment, and the business stake is big.

These company yearly financial turnover can be larger than GDP of many countries.

Malaysia is lucky that we overthrew previous corrupted government. But there is no single entity that can destroy these pharmaceutical companies, irrespective how much evidence that their drugs 💊 kill patients.

Surely they will not allow new medical theories to destroy their business.
This is the dilemma of Western Medicine and the helplessness of patients.

Let us continue to gather more the ancient wisdom and practice Life Cultivation, ya?

Single Cause to Fire, Disease?

A short circuit occurs in a house resulted in a big fire. If it is only the short circuit without adjacent combustible items, without supply of oxygen, and with automatic fire-extinguishing system i.e. presence of some “necessary and sufficient conditions” the fire will not occur.

Do you agree with this logic?

In the Cause and Effect model : Effect = Fire, Causes = Short circuit + combustible items + oxygen + failure of fire prevention system.

Today modern medical philosopher, John Mackie proposes the INUS model / theory that says the above message.

This implies that common medical assertion that the disease is caused by virus (like the above short circuit) is insufficient conclusion.

Another scholar, Carter, declares in exasperation that it is “totally pointless, hopeless and downright silly to think one can ever state precisely what it is for one thing to cause another.”

These new theories present tremendous challenges to the medical practitioners, with “virus” as the cause of illness is a belief system deeply embedded, coupled with enormous pressure from the pharmaceutical industries.

Back to 3000 years ago, Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic (YEIC) already knows this simple logic, that it is the body internal environments that attract “virus” (at that time, they used the word “evils” 邪) that harms the body.

This implies that if the main body organs functionalities as a system is intact, the healthy internal body environment will not attract such “evils” to harm the body, resulting in cancers, tumors, etc.

And the treatment is to restore the functionalities of the body organs system, not kill the virus.

Now we can realize the importance of Life Cultivation 养生, constantly strengthening the body organs system, or as per ancient sages saying “Balance the Yin and Yang”.

Hence a short circuit that starts the fire, the fire would not spread if the  “necessary and sufficient conditions” do not exist. Likewise, whatever may be the virus attack, if the internal body system is intact, stable and healthy, the so called disease caused by “virus” would not occur.

“Single cause and effect” mindset is very prevalent in most people, especially in the subject matter of nutrition. The logic says : “eat this and that foods make you healthy or make you sick”. They spend great deal of money chasing after cancer-prevention foods, etc.

But so identified  food is only a single factor, there are many other  “necessary and sufficient conditions” for the cancer to occur.

Without comprehensive knowledge how illnesses / diseases come about, we are living in illusion of health.

Ancient sages already provided us with the knowledge 3000 years ago as per Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic (YEIC).

Shall we not be curious to find out more the ancient wisdom?

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the 2-day YEIC training class , or online training for learners outside Malaysia.

Is Nutrition Theory like blind men and an elephant?

After reading the report below, tell me what diets can help good health and long life.

“That there is no magic common healthy diet for all could not have been better validated than by Buettner’s study of the ‘Blue Zones’ that boast the highest rate of centenarians in the world.

These enclaves of healthy high longevity populations include Sardinian shepherds from Cannonau county who have a high proportion of meat in their diets and drink the polyphenol-rich local red wine four times a day.

Adventists in California on the other hand thrive on a strict regimen of vegetarian delights and no alcohol.

Greeks in the idyllic island of Ikaria feast on the Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil, nuts, vegetables and seafood.

And Okinwan centenarians love generous helpings of fat-rich pork with their vegetables. There is no common dietary factor that could account for their longevity”

(The above is an extract from “Principles of Chinese Medicine: A modern interpretation” by Dr Hong Hai)

As we can see there is no common diet system that promotes the above different cultures centenarians.

So how do Western Medicine / Nutrition Theory make meaningful conclusion? Solely based on diets in term of Carbohydrate, Protein, Fat, Vitamin, etc cannot explain adequately, nor other diets system like today popular Alkaline Diet , etc.
However, 3000 years ago, ancient sages already give us clues as per YEIC. That is the critical concept of Body Constituents (体质).

What is Body Constituents?

Individual’s unique Body Constituents come from 1 ) Pre-natal, (先天) (that include hereditary,DNA etc),and 2) Post-natal (后天)” (that include exposure to weathers, seasons, environment (whereby above different cultures have different environments) , place of stay, life habits, diets, types of exercises, moods, emotions, consciousness, personality, psychology,attitudes towards life, …etc.,)。

Hence what food is good for A, is harmful to B. Because A and B Body Constituents are different.
Not knowing one’s Body Constituents, and apply the most modern nutrition theories is like blind man and the elephant, or buy lottery tickets, sometimes win, most times lose.

The 5000 years Chinese food theory is based on what foods suitable for which aspects of body functionalities like digestion, metabolism, blood supply, respiration system, excretion etc. Unlike Western Nutrition Theory solely based on the composition of the food make-up, which cannot specifically points how it helps liver, or kidney or heart functioning !
Body Constituents + Diet Theory” (体质 + 饮食学说), is ½ day discussion at the 2-day YEIC training, involving many new concepts and knowledge.

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the 2-day YEIC training class , or online training for learners outside Malaysia.

High Blood Pressure – Wrong Focus !!

 

In the Mandarin WhatsApp group, a member asks :

“Teacher, high blood pressure is due to which organ out of balance? How to avoid taking high blood pressure medicine?”

I ask : “Are you referring to western medicine 💊?”,she replied : “Yes”

Come to think of it, there are many illnesses require lifelong medication, including high blood pressure.

Lifelong medication to the ancient sage is a rather ridiculous thing. The Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic (YEIC) principle is “Restore body organs functionalities, you get well”. If herbs and acupuncture could not cure, consider daily practice of Life Cultivation 养生之道。

Back to the topic of high blood pressure, the issue is not which organ is out of balance, perhaps in the previous discussion, body organ functionalities are often mentioned.

I explain as follow.

Western Medicine focuses on “Pressure” and uses instrument to measure it.

YEIC does not use pressure as a concept. Instead a more powerful concept “Qi-blood” is used to explain many phenomena in the body functionalities or operational problems or illnesses.

When a person is very angry, he feels pressure in his head. Interestingly in Chinese language, angry (生气) ,means generate a lot of qi, resulting in pressure.

It is the qi that raises the blood pressure, and pressure is the end product.

Hence it is wise to put focus on the factor that creates pressure, i.e. qi.

Western Medicine does not have “Qi” concept, they consider high blood pressure is due to blood vessels lack elasticity, or damaged. Hence medication and necessary surgery are the main approaches.

“Qi-blood” is needed to all parts of the body. When you have high workload and the boss is impatiently waiting for your delivery of work, your head feels the pressure. That is because the body needs to send much more “Qi-blood” to your brain to help you finish your task and you feel the pressure or fainting.

If your body constituent (体质) is weak, particularly short of breath, i.e. your “Qi” is weak, and your “Qi-blood” is inadequate ( eg. anemia ),and you struggle to complete the task, besides having high blood pressure, you may have other problems like cold feet (as most qi-blood goes to the head, not feet), insomnia, anxiety attack, … which further increases your high blood pressure.

If you have blood stasis, eg. ladies with irregular periods, thick blood, or with high fat contents in the blood, and fluid part of the blood, due to poor metabolism, contains phlegm, or toxins, which manifest in your urine, stools, sweat, i.e. as per YEIC, called “Yin-Yang imbalance”, … isn’t it true then the Qi needs enormous force to move the heavy, contaminated blood and fluid, causing high blood pressure?

Earlier we have many discussions on our diets, lack of exercises to move qi, our emotions, feelings, personality, life attitude, … affecting Yin-Yang Balance, 阴阳失调,which further affect body organs functionalities, 五脏六腑功能失调,these cause high blood pressure, which is not due to only one organ issue.

Hence if you accept the teaching of ancient wisdom, and practice daily Life Cultivation 养生,and raise the quality of Qi, Blood, body Fluid, you can do away with medication 💊, and not suffer high blood pressure, don’t you agree? 😋😋😋

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the 2-day YEIC training class , or online training for learners outside Malaysia.
“Qi 气”, “Life Cultivation, 养生”, Organs Functionality “五脏六腑功能”,“Qi-blood 气血”,”Fluid 津液”,”Body Constituent 体质”

Special Need Child, Bone Structure, Organ Functionalities

Grateful to a Chinese WhatsApp group member sharing the following case for group learning.

Through a process of Q&A to find out as much relevant information, as YEIC emphasis is Holistic approach, not just focus on a few symptoms.

She says that specialist made diagnosis on her child and concluded that the child is an asperger case. The mother has little clues what and why?

Instead of being disturbed or frightened by bombastic illness label like “asperger”, “cancer”, “autism”, “Parkinson”, it is important to check what aspects of the child’s basic functionalities are out of balance. E.g. 5-senses-faculties, digestion, excretion, EQ besides IQ etc.

Often when Western Medicine specialists conclude illnesses with labels, it is as if the patient is sentenced to death. This itself creates enormous pressure and worries on the part of the patients. Then the mother’s worries also project onto the child. Negative energies just get amplified.

Early I made inquiry about the child bone-development, are the teeth sound and strong, etc. There are good reasons for such questions.

In the olden days in China, there were many natural disasters like floods, dry spell, .. life was difficult with much hardship and little to eat. Old people will observe the young children and know which children had more chance of survival, how did they do it?

They observed the children teeth. Why?

YEIC says, The soundness of Kidney Qi is manifested in bones, which are also related to bone marrow and intelligence, with strong will power and determination.

Do you now also connect with the observation of many older persons having weak bones, teeth dropped, lowered learning ability, reduced will power? All these are because of weakened and deteriorating Kidney Qi.

Once we have a sound theory, in the case about how Kidneys Qi governs several important functions, we can take steps to strengthen Kidneys Qi before weaknesses develop further.

In many organizations and corporation, management are concerned about some staff not having strong will power to do their tasks, with lowered performances, perhaps they should invest in YEIC training to staff instead of just leadership and team-building training.

The mother above says the child’s teeth structure OK. That is good news.

YEIC also says all the 5-key organs relate and affect each other. From the gathered information from the mother, we have the following.

The child likes playing on sand beach, water splashing, balls, but when come to writing or drawing, he hardly has a few seconds concentration.

And the child gets mad with tantrum if he is made to complete the homework. Teachers and mother will put more pressure on him to do study.

YEIC says, Spleen has the function in Thinking. This infers the child dislike writing is due to Spleen / Stomach out of balance.

As per 5-element model, Spleen = Earth, Kidneys = Water. Earth controls Water, e.g. earth dam can control and regulate river water. Kidneys also has the function in wanting to move with strength and muscle, implies extrovert type of character.

With weakened Spleen, not able to control Kidneys, the child prefers only outdoors activities, not studying.

With pressure from teachers and mother to do homework, the child gets frustrated and angry.

YEIC says, Liver manifests ager and Heart Stores Consciousness / Spirit.

Liver = Wood and Wood controls Earth, Meaning child’s frustration harms the liver function, which further affects Spleen.

And Heart = Fire, Wood can give rise to Fire. but now the Wood, i.e. Liver is out of balance and that causes imbalance to the Heart. The mother says the child eyes seem floating without good eye contact with people. This indicates the heart could not manage good consciousness.

This is how ancient sages using the inter-related theory of organs with their unique functionalities, explain various phenomena, be it illness, behaviors etc.

This is the limitations of Western Special need Children education, as they overly focus on the behavioral problems of the children and not relate to the physiology. As such many Autism education centers train the children to be like robots, keep modifying the children behaviors with disciplines. Really pity these poor children due to teachers’ / parents’ ignorance.

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the 2-day YEIC training class , or online training for learners outside Malaysia.
“Kidneys, one of the function, is in Will Power 肾主志”,“Kidneys responsible for bone development, born marrow and intelligence 肾主骨生髓通于脑”,”Spleen, on of the functions, is in Thinking. 脾主思”,”Liver manifests a你ger 肝主怒”,”Heart stores Consciousness 心❤主神明”。

Must sportsman be more Healthy?

Datuk Lee Chong Wei, a Malaysia National shuttler, is suffering from early nose cancer. Everyone feels distressed and wishes him a speedy recovery.

Someone said: “I never thought that a top-ranking player with such a disciplined and healthy life would also develop cancer.”

Many people think that sportsmen should be healthy and how can they get sick?

Today we talk about sportsmen and health.

Early we have discussed 3000 years ago ancient sages proposes illnesses theory, the various factors like internal and external causes, today we only concentrate on a few variables.

Let’s start with simple logic. (I only bring out the concept of “Qi- blood” as per YEIC)

When athletes do intense exercise, breathing and heartbeat naturally accelerated. A lot of Qi-blood needs to be supplied to the heart and lungs. The body consumes a lot of “blood” and “qi”.

Intense exercise produces internal heat, body temperature increases, burning body fluids, turning into sweat. This also consumes body fluids in the body.

The “Qi, blood, and body fluid” consumed need adequate supplement .

(blood, and body fluid = Yin, Qi=Yang)

How to provide supplement?

It is necessary to have enough sleep and a proper diet.

Western nutrition theory only has the theory of protein, vitamin, etc. There is no clear guidance on how to supplement “qi, blood, and fluid” particularly.

The ancients experimented with a variety of different foods and analyzed their effects, such as what foods can produce blood, fluid, and Qi.

At the same time, it also needs to correspond to the individual’s body constitution. Therefore, different athletes should have different types of diets as supplements.

When in intense exercise, Qi and blood is specially supplied from the other organs to the heart and lungs. This also causes other visceral imbalance.

If other visceral features are inherently dysfunctional (because they are congenitally insufficient / acquired during growing stage), then there are double imbalances to manage.

At the same time, the ancient sages also said that emotions, personality also affects the function of the organs, such as “anger affects liver”, “fear affects kidneys”, and so on. Athletes, like everyone else, also have their own emotions to balance.

Besides, sweating consumes a lot of body fluid, which also causes the metabolism to lose balance and needs conditioning.

If the functions of the internal organs are seriously out of balance or dysfunctional, all sorts of diseases can occur, not necessarily just nose cancer!

Disorders of the internal organs need to be conditioned every day.

Conditioning also needs to understand the theory of “yin and yang, qi, and five elements of doctrine” to understand the changes in yin and yang of your body every day.

Then there is another factor, a habit that everyone takes for granted, after intense exercise, feeling thirsty, drink a lot of cold drinks!

Let’s analyze it again, the heat inside the body, and then a cold drink, what effect on the body?

A person who doesn’t know how to cook, burns the rice cooker very hot and pours cold water on the pot. Over time, will not the rice pot crack? This is called “Thermal Spalling”, crack as a result of expansion and contraction.

Internal heat, sweating, drinking cold drinks, as a habit, over time, will Not the blood vessel weakened or harmed? Can Qi-blood still flow smoothly?

The ancients have always stressed the importance of “cold and hot, that is, yin and yang.” Western medicine has no theory of cold and heat.

From the above discussion, do you realize that sportsmen need to learn more about Life Cultivation as per Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic in order to truly enjoy sports healthily?

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the 2-day YEIC training class , or online training for learners outside Malaysia.

Using Simple Logic to discuss Nervous System

Today we continue the discussion on “Nervous System”.

Western Medicine considers diseases like Parkinson, Autism, Alzheimer, Depression, … are due to Nervous System problems.

Hence their attention is focused on “Nervous System”.

When they consider certain illness is due to heart and blood circulation problem, they shift their attention on such.

Let’s discuss based on logic.

Heart, blood circulation problem surely needs supply of oxygen as per the lungs-functionalities. Agreed?

Surely they also need the liver to carry out its detox function, to ensure flesh supply of blood to the heart and for blood circulation. Agree?

Surely they require good digestive functions of the spleen and stomach so as to ensure transformed foods into nutrients can be supplied to the heart and blood circulation. Agree?

Surely they require good metabolism from the kidneys to ensure no toxin accumulation in the heart and blood. Agree?

From the above logics, all key organs functionalities are to be in good order so that heart and blood circulation are in good order too.

Likewise we can extend the same logics to the “nervous system”, which requires good organs functionalities.

Isn’t it strange that there is different medical treatments for Parkinson, Autism, Alzheimer, Depression, …although they all arise from “nervous system” problems!

We are no medical doctors, specialists, but we can follow the above logics, why can’t the western medical trained doctors cannot see such logics?

Western Medicine considers ancient YEIC has no logics, in its holistic approach, but it is precisely this logic that take good care of the key organs functionalities, good health ensured. 五脏六腑的基本功能!

Do you feel you need simple logics to govern your life or complicated and entangled theories?

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the 2-day YEIC training class , or online training for learners outside Malaysia.

You want good Nervous System or Consciousness?

Nervous System problem is often quoted by Western Medicine as the cause to a variety of diseases, like Parkinson’s, Autism, Alzheimer’s.

As per Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic (YEIC), there is no such concept nor term called “Nervous System”.

But 3000 years ago, ancient sages place great importance to “Consciousness” “Intelligence” “EQ”, which are hallmark of human being as compared with animals.

These Intangible system was also recognized as closely related to the tangible system like respiratory system, digestive system, excretion system, metabolism of the body.

For example, “Anger is associated with the function of Liver”, “怒伤肝”,Thinking power is associated with the function of Spleen “脾主思”,Will Power is associated with the function of Kidneys “肾藏志”,Joy and happiness are associated with the function of heart “心主喜”.

During my two day YEIC training class, I ask students : “Do you prefer to have nervous system or higher Consciousness system?”

Obviously they choose the later. After all animal also have nervous system.

Logics tell us that if we possess high Consciousness, surely it implies the nervous system is intact.

The the focus should be placed on manifesting the higher human Consciousness, involving intelligence, EQ and understand their relationship with the tangible body functionalities system, like blood circulation, breathing etc.

On these matter, ancient sages give us a lot of knowledge and information and therapies.

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the 2-day YEIC training class , or online training for learners outside Malaysia.
“Anger affect Liver, 怒伤肝”,”Spleen has thinking functionalities 脾主思”,”Will Power is associated with Kidneys function 肾藏志”,”Joy and Happiness are felt in the Heart 心主喜”,。。。 。。。

Ancient sages used their brains or not?

Today we discuss whether ancient sages did use their brains or not?

In Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic (YEIC), Heart is compared to Fire, something hot. Kidneys are compared to Water, something cooling. Spleen is compared to Earth, something stable.

Western Medicine scholars surely laugh at such ridiculous comparison. They only focus on actual facts : how large is the heart, what colors, what cells etc.. They often consider YEIC not scientific.

Let me use simple logic to explain.

Isn’t heart continuously pumping bloods, and it is like machine in constant motion. Such motion produces heat, isn’t it? Hence ancients sages use Fire to represent Heart.

Logic also tells us, Kidneys function is concerning filtration of liquid into urine to be sent to the bladder. it is like irrigation system, Then liquid is a form of water, And Water is used to represent Kidneys.

Ancients sages also figured out how Fire (Heart) and Water (Kidneys) work hand in hand. They observe the nature, the sun is high up, hot. The earth and ocean are down below, cool.

In out body, heart is like the sun, high up and kidneys are like the ocean, down below.

The earth and ocean needs heat from the sun, otherwise the earth and ocean will be frozen into ice.

The sun cannot be too hot, otherwise the earth dry up and become deserts. Then the oceans, after heated by the sun, steam rises to form cloud to cool the upper sphere.

Then the high atmosphere is cool, rain forms when cold is encountered. Falling rain nourishes the earth.

This is the natural cycle and phenomena, which the ancients sages observe.

Sun heats the earth / ocean, the heated water vapour rises to cool the upper atmosphere, to shield the hot sun, and fall as rain to cool the earth.

From such observation, ancient sages conclude our body system behaves in similar fashion, and consider our internal body like an internal universe.

Then the heart heat must be able to heat the kidney water, and the heated steam rises to the heart to cool it down. The cycle repeats.

On conceptual level, Heart is Yang, and Kidney is Yin. Yin-Yang theory was formulated to explain phenomena. And such theory is used to explain deviation, like illnesses.

So what the ancient sages did was the following process : 1) Observation, 2) Making hypothesis, 3) Experiment, 4) Verification.

Now you tell me, didn’t ancients sages use their brain and use scientific methods?

If you think that ancient sages are indeed scientific in approach. Do you think the Western Medicine is not scientific?

Of course not! The key difference is ancient sages observe the nature and universe to understand how things work. Whereas Western Medicine, since the invention of microscope, they narrowly focus on what can be seen underneath the microscope, virus, bacteria etc. and use these to explain the body symptoms and illnesses.
