It is encouraging to see more and more enrollments to the ancient wisdom video courses.
Many express amazement that there is not only interesting but also revolutionary ideas about health, sickness and diseases, which were advocated 3000 years ago.
With such amzement, many sign up to all the video courses concerning ancient wisdom, Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic.
However, I do realize some challenges faced by the learners.
This is because for centuries our minds are conditioned by the western science, western medicine and western nutrition theory to understand our body system in a particular manners, which is incomplete and hence not holistic.
Now the ancient wisdom presents a very different approach which can really address the fundamental issues with prevention and solutions.
But the subconscious mind, being heavily conditioned, cannot easily shift the paradigm after a few hours of the video courses. Hence practitioners will soon revert back to the old thinking pattern and not allowing the new practice to take roots.
For this reason, I encourage the learners to make good use of the video courses, i.e. these video courses are available for re-visit as many times as necessary.
Furthermore I organize a Telegram Discussion Group for members to share, discuss, more Q&A on their daily practices and more queries on the ancient theories.
By such reinforcement, paradigm shift can take roots and participant can enjoy the new practice towards well being.
Interested public are welcome to join the Telegram discussion group by signing up any of the video courses. By doing so, you have some theoritical basic to make meaningful discussion.
Please Telegram me @Andrew360q after you enrolled to any of the courses.
There are more and more such articles published that today scientists discover the functions or malfunctions of the brain is connected with the gut.
This implies brain related problems like Parkinson, dementia, autism, stokes are connected with the gut problems.
This connection and relationship are well understood 3000 years ago as per ancient wisdom “Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic”.
However today scientists using Western Medicine theory still operate with their fragmented and compartmentalized thinking, looking for micro solutions and not macro solutions.
For example, such statements “Recent research has found that bacteria in the gut can affect people’s mental state, leading to mood, cognition and behavioural problems.” lead scientists to zoom in research into the bacteria and elimination of the bacteria.
But that will not solve the fundamental problems.
Let me explain.
As per Google search :
Where is the gut found? The mouth is the first part of the gut (gastrointestinal tract). When we eat, food passes down the gullet (oesophagus), into the stomach, and then into the small intestine. The small intestine has three sections – the duodenum, jejunum and ileum.
The gut involves digestive system (mouth, stomach) and absorption system (small intestines).
Just based on the above limited information, ancient wisdom considered more than 2 variables (Stomach & Intestines) that create whatever may be the health problems.
Stomach is closely related to Spleen. Small Intestines are closely related to Heart.
As per 5-Elements Theory, Spleen / Stomach, Small Intestines / Heart are in constant interaction with Kidneys / Bladder, Lungs / Large Intestines, Liver / Gall-Bladder.
Only with all the organs functionalities are in good balance, you will not have so called bacteria in the guts.
Hence bacteria in the gut is the end result of how well you overall organs functioning. Hence it is not the cause.
What is this ancient wisdom Total Integrated Model that connects all parts of our body and mind?
After the above introduction, you may be motivated to find out more to enhance the well being of yourself and loved ones, you can explore and learn the theory and practice of the ancient wisdom by enrolling the following video courses.
Learner finds that there is a mix of different types of Body Constituents relevant to herself, with different scores.
From the Body Constituent questionnaires, she also realizes there are many more symptoms experienced, and not just sleeping problems.
The following is some discussion.
In your case, focus on the one with highest score e.g. Phlegm-damp Body Constituent 痰湿体质。
The video course also explains if Phlegm is not arrested, and cumulative in different parts of the body, e.g. at heart, it may cause insomnia, if at the brain, it many cause stroke etc..
The questionnaires give details of symptoms e.g. oily face, sticky feeling, joints pain, constipation, cannot sweat easily ….
These symptoms experienced are important Indicators to watch up for, while doing various therapies 调理， until improvement is made.
Since this particular video course is on Food Therapy, then the learner should refer to the tables given indicating what foods to avoid, what foods to consume.
The video course also gives details on Food Plan.
Do the above for a few months to get the new diet plan into routine.
Later learn and apply other therapies.
(A follow up communication ).
You Stagnant Qi Body Constituent （气郁体质） score is rather high xxxx.
The main cause of Stagnant Qi is your management of your emotions.
you mentioned you are emotionally dependent on others, .
being soft hearted in doing charity,
lack of decisiveness in making life decision,
Stagnant Qi, later, can lead to Blood Stasis 血瘀, (as explained in my video), and Blood Stasis have a lot of problems to the body, imagine your blood too thick, full of toxin, cannot flow easily … blood stasis in the brain causes memory loss, in the heart causes heart attack, at the leg causes water retention and legs weakness etc. etc.)
You can better realize 3000 yrs ancient wisdom links Personality with health issues. And we all have imperfect personality, hence with different health challenges.
Note: 200 yrs Western Medicine does not have such theory linking personality with diseases, Western Medicine focuses on identifying more and more new virus and kill them.
Being aware of the above on Personality is important, we cannot change such behaviors overnight.
Hence you start with developing discipline in the Food Therapy you learned so far, and later the Qi Exercise …by practicing such discipline, you enhance your emotional stability.
This is a video on “The Brain is shrinking”. It seems like a big and new scientific discovery.
But more than 3000 years ago, ancient wisdom already knew, “Brain is Shrinking”.
The video continues to related other symptoms and diseases with brain shrinkages., e.g. dementia, depression, Parkinson, Stroke, celebral palsy, Huntington’s diseases, diabetes, etc.
And Vitamin B12, artificially made chemical substance is recommended for prevention. (Have you read reports how damaging are man-made artificial vitamins?)
Lack of exercise, improper diets, inadequate sleep are mentioned as contributing factors to brain shrinkage. As discussed in several other articles and video in this Blog, western scientists can only point out the above as general condition, they do not have integrated theory to explain exactly how lack of exercise, improper diets, inadequate sleep cause brain shrinkage.
Such is the incompleteness and inconsistency of today modern science.
What knowledge was held in the 3000 years ancient wisdom that the brain is shrinking, especially over aging?
Different terminology was used. Instead of Brain is shrinking, it is called Yin Deficiency.
Since Yin is deficiency, it causes imbalance to the Yin and Yang. And Yang now becomes excessives, which contribute to many of the symptoms and diseases mentioned above.
Now you, see, Yin Yang Theory is the overarching integrating theory, that can put all things under one roof.
For example, good sleep is Stillness, Yin is at rest. Insonia is the opposite, Yin is not at rest, and Yang is agitating. Can you figure out how these affect the brain? Agitated Yang implies thoughts, nervous system not in harmony.
Thousands of years, ancient wisdom offers us how to supplement the Yin, how to calm the Yang, through food therapy, qi exercises and many self-healing techniques.
All these to ensure gradual diminishing of Yin and more balanced Yin and Yang during aging. The brain will still shrink, but more gradually and gracefully.
This discussion involves a few key concepts which are explained in details in the video training.”Yin Yang Theory, 阴阳学说“， “Organs Functionalities 五脏六腑”， “5-elements theory 五行学说 ” ，”Food Therapy” 食疗， 饮食学说。 Meridians, Qi exercise 经络，气的运动。
