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。
I had a coaching case of an old lady, whose adult son’s patience has been stretched by her to a limit. The old lady for the last year or so, became very temperamental, scolding the in-laws and the maid and accusing the son for stealing her money, and wanted her to die soon.
The old mother has pain here and there, discomfort every day which she complains non-stop. The son and family try their very best to accommodate her, bring her to clinic and hospitals.
But nothing improves. And the son wonders it is because of her psychological issues and calls me for help.
I also come across some adult children, with such difficult case, lost their patience and hit the old parents, which they regret greatly later.
After my coaching session with the old mother, I explained to the family it is not psychological issues but her body organs system deteriorate badly, with lots of imbalances, and these affect the mood and behaviors.
This is similar to autistic child’s behavioral problems arising from physiological imbalances or called Yin-Yang imbalance.
This is the key principle of YEIC : psychology and physiology affecting each other.
Both the old motner and the adult children do not know YEIC Life Cultivation 养生 principles, meaning if the old lady knows YEIC, and if she practices Life Cultivation before her old age, her body internal system, though may deteriorate, but in a more balanced manner. (In my previous articles, I mentioned how emotions affect organs, like Anger affects Liver, Fear affects Kidneys）, ..
And the children do not know YEIC and they hope doctors can help the mother, but doctors can’t. Because Western Medicine nevers considers psychology and emotion as part of the body organs systems.
Some people, without Life Cultivation, when come to old age, they may not manifest in behavioral problems, but illnesses like diabetes, Parkinson, cancers etc.
I suggest to the adult children and in-law to learn YEIC so as to apply Life Cultivation for their mother. One cannot depend on medicine and doctors (Western Medicine or TCM) forever. But, like most people, the children expect me to give a magical pill or solution, without them having to learn new things with application.
This is a common mindset of people. “Too busy with life, if sick, see doctors”. This is very different from YEIC, which stress the importance on Life Cultivation to prevent sickness.
It is difficult for me to convince them, nor do I want to convince them, but only explain to them. Obviously the adult children do not think what may happen to them when they grow old. Most people assume, today my health is quite Ok, I should be ok in the future. Is that so?
I see the adult children and in-law still busy sending the old grumbling mother from clinic to TCM doctors to hospitals.
It is pitiful people get caught in vicious circle without any breakthrough.
This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the video training courses , …
“5 Consciousness and 5 Organs 五神对应五脏” “Emotions and Organs 情志”，”Life Cultivation 养生”，”Functionalities of Organs 脏腑功能”，
“Words in Chinese are texts from the book YEIC, 3000 years ago.”
In this video course, we first discuss about Western Education on Exercise for Health. With critical examination, we find that the concepts and ideas conveyed (that almost affect the whole world population) are limiting, some misleading and in most cases cannot improve health, some in the long run damage health at old age, and some can be fatal.
This is especially so revealing when we study understanding about Exercise for Health as presented by the Ancient Wisdom
We discuss the underlying Theory of the Ancient Wisdom, in what way, Qi Exercise improve health and in what specific way for people with different health issues.
With knowledge on many other self-help healing methods, we acquire power in our own hands to improve our health, or even to practice as part of Life Cultivation for autistic child or diseases like Parkinson, cancers etc.
As per another video course on “Food Therapy” we realize that it is the same Governing Theory of the ancient wisdom on Qi Exercise for Health and Food Theory. Meridian system is part of the Central Theory.
This is what is lacking in Western Medicine and Western Nutrition Theory, there is no coherent integrated Theory.
For those who enrolled to these video training courses on Ancient Wisdom for Today Well Being, do you see that, practically the whole world is misguided about the notion of Exercise for Health and Diets for Health?
Yet, we know Exercise and Diets are important. But we need good and clear direction for our daily practices.
