Is Medicine the only answer?

In our Chinese WhatsApp YEIC discussion group, when the discussion is on various types of symptoms or sickness, some members often ask ; “Teacher, what medicine should I take?”

This is a general mindset : “Not feeling well or sick, one must take medicine.”

Today we discuss further such concept, “sickness, not well, behavioral problems, …what medicine or therapy should be applied?”

Let us spell out from our head the various questions we often have : “Should one take medicine because of sickness? Should I take medicine for life? In what situation medicine does not really help? ….”

Not long ago, I was watching a video from China, about a famous TCM doctor sharing his experience on “望闻问切” i.e. by “examining the patient, listening to his voice, make some important inquiry, and feeling the patient’s pulse, the TCM doctor is able to determine the sickness of a patient.

A lady from the audience was invited for demonstration, After a few seconds, the lady was surprised the doctors able to tell her often occurred discomfort and sickness, and she quickly asked “Doctor, what medicine should I take?”.

The doctor replied, “I am not teaching you to take medicine. But I will teach you about your diet, and how to function well as a human being”.

As per YEIC, this is considered a first class doctor, who “treats a person, not his sickness . Treat parts that are well.” 上医不治已病,治未病”, “治人不治病”。

But in some cases, surely medicine is needed. How to know the difference?

First, we need to understand the purpose of medicine as per YEIC. If you say it is to cure sickness, then Western Medicine is also to cure sickness. What is the difference?

The ancient sage considers the key purpose of medicine is to help to restore your basic body organs functionalities, e.g. if you have severe asthma, you hardly can breathe, a TCM doctor may use a strong herb to get the Qi-to move, thus restore breathing.

Let me repeat, in YEIC, the purpose of medicine (herbs) is to restore body organs functionalities, 五脏六腑功能。

This concept is very different from Western Medicine, which if there is headache, pain killer is used. If cancers, use medicine to kill the cancer cells, including the healthy cells.

We have heard ancient stories in China, e.g. a poor farmer has a sick child since birth, with severe and constant sickness, many doctors are not able to cure him, and the farmer begs a Sifu in the mountain to take care of the son. The son helps the Sifu clean his residence, follow the Sifu Qi-gong, and follow the Sifu’s simple diet.

Years later, the son gets well and strong, with good performance in Qi-gong, much to the pride and delight of the Sifu. This is an example of “Life Cultivation” (养生), without taking medicine.

The same principle applied. Whether taking medicine (herb) or Life Cultivation, i.e. the Tao of Living, for a long term, restore the body organs functionalities. When body organs functionalities, e.g. heart, lung, liver, kidney spleen, are functioning well, one will not get sick anymore.

Ancient miraculous healer, Sun Simiao, 孙思邈,says : “As a doctor, he must first consider using diet to heal the patient, If diet does not work, consider medicine (herbs)”.

Diet and Herb can restore body organs functionalities “药食同源”. This is what we discuss in details in the 2-day YEIC training.

Especially for autistic child, Parkinson sufferer, or who are in long term sickness, instead on totally dependent only on current medication, Life Cultivation, the Tao of Living is recommended.

In our WhatsApp group, a member due to a fall ten years ago, today suffers much discomfort and pain, after many attempts to try with many doctors, therapists, medicine, … do not help, he is still looking for a pill to cure him. Perhaps he should consider Life Cultivation, the Tao of Living. 养生*,又 *养心 了。

If your today health is reasonable. Life Cultivation helps you to prevent major sickness.

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

Recovery to health can’t just depend on medical treatments

Today we talk about Five Consciousness. *五神*.as per Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic.

There is this old man, stroke for more than 10 years. Everyday TCM doctor does acupuncture for him.

His wife was formerly an active lady, skill in yoga, likes socializing. Because of the husband’s sickness, she had to forgo all the activities she enjoys.

It is not that the old man is 100% stroke. There are certain parts of the body can still move, e.g. fingers, toes, etc. But he just lies there motionless and expect the wife to attend to him on everything.

YEIC says “Spleen has the function of Thinking and Intention “脾藏意” Intention is one of the Five Consciousnesses.

If there is not strong intention to help oneself, e.g. by moving the fingers, which can facilitate the qi-flow (there are 6 Qi-meridians on the hands), even with the best doctors, Western or TCM, there is little cure.

YEIC also says, “Kidneys Store Will Power.:“肾藏志” Another one of the Five Consciousness.

With”Intention” and “Will Power” e.g. everyday move the fingers, the Consciousness can be raised, the Spleen and Kidneys can gain more functionalities.

In Chinese characters, “Will Power” is ”意志力”.

The first character “意” is Intention. Second “志” is Will. Third “力” is power. Chinese culture incorporates the concepts of Consciousness in Chinese characters.

Intention and Will Power do not come overnight. It takes time to practice and practice.

Today many people are in sorry-ful state. They do not know the knowledge of Life Cultivation. With Spleen and Kidneys-deficiencies, they lack strong Intention and Will Power.

They can easily get defeated in life and get sick often. They should project themselves into the future. Do they want to be like the above old man, not only making his life miserable, but the whole family.

“In order to realise Vision, we need to start Action now”.

Let’s establish a compelling life vision and goal and start learning and practicing the ancient wisdom now.

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 your child to have good healthy physical components or Capability to manifest full potentials?

A child has serious skin problem, itchy all over the body, he really suffers a great deal. Furthermore he is hyperactive.

Half a year various medical treatments brought no progress.
Professor Low 罗大伦博士,(Beijing YEIC expert) introduces Chinese Yam (a type of vegetable you can buy in the market) and after the child’s father followed the instruction, the child’s skin problem is solved and not so hyper-active then.

We will discuss the medical theory applied.

We will skip Western Medicine treatment, as Western Medicine treats symptom and not root causes.

Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic (YEIC) says : “Lungs Functionalities manifest through Skin”, meaning skin-problem is related to Lung function. In 5-element model, Lungs are represented by “Metal”, and Spleen represented by “Earth”.

“5-element theory” further says “Earth gives rise to Metal” or “Earth supports Metal”, then only when Earth or Spleen functions are in good order, we can have good Lung-functions, good skin too. In this case, the skin-problem, related to Lung-Functionality-deficiency is due to weak or imbalanced “Earth or Spleen”.

One of the Liver-functionalities is “Easy flow and Spreading out”, and body, limbs movement requires energy or Qi-blood supply to limbs for movement. If Liver-functions are not in balanced, the movement cannot be well coordinated, resulting in hyper-active movement.

Liver is represented by “Wood” in the 5-element. If the Earth is weak or loosened, then the Wood or tree is not stable and move uncontrollably. Again the key problem, or function out of order is the Earth – Spleen.

Weak Spleen causes Skin-problem (Lungs), and causes hyperactive movement, (Liver).

Chinese Yam is administered.
What is the key property of Chinese Yam? The key property of Chinese Yam is to strengthen Spleen, which is the root cause of the above case.

What are the properties and functionalities of foods (Chinese yam) was carefully studied thousands of years ago, unlike Western Nutrition theory which breaks foods down to components like carbohydrate, fat, vitamin etc.

This is how YEIC treats “skin problem, hyper-activeness” as mere symptoms, but look up for key root-cause using the above discussed Theory.

Do you see autism and Parkinson problems have a lot to do with functionalities of Liver and Spleen?

You want your child to have good healthy physical components or Capability to manifest full potentials?

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the video training courses.“5-element theory 五行学说” “Lung equates to metal 肺属金,Spleen to Earth 脾属土,,Liver to Wood, 肝属木”,”Lungs manifest at Skin 肺主皮毛”,”Functionalities of Organs 脏腑功能”,“”Diet and Medicine interchangeable 药食同源”    “Words in Chinese are texts from the book YEIC, 3000 years ago.”

Special Need Child’s wrongly labelled as behavioral problem!

This is a discussion from the Chinese YEIC (Ancient Wisdom) WhatsApp group. A mother shared the challenges faced with respect to her child.

After a series of Q&A to understand better the overall situation, (which Yellow Emperor’s Inner Clasic,YEIC, emphasizes a lot, to have a holistic view), the following are the information and analysis made.

(words in brackets are info from the mother).

(A special need child, female, 10 years old, extrovert behaviors)

(The child was born a cesarean case)

(Child’s teeth not strong).

(Learning disability. Simple arithmetic she has great difficulty. Self help not disciplined. Forgetful.)

(In early years, she cannot control her urine, Now improve a bit.)

From the above data, analysis is made from YEIC perspectives.

The above indicates Kidneys-functionalities out of balance, or Kidneys-deficiency.

3000 years ago, ancient sages says : “Kidneys manifests in Bones 肾主骨,Kidneys give rise to bone marrow 骨生髓,which gives rise to brain 通脑”,”Kidneys are responsible for inner body irrigation system e.g. urination 肾主水”

These imply, the above mentioned symptoms like learning difficulty (brain problem), forgetfulness, unable to control urination, teeth (bones) not strong, … are all related to Kidneys-functionalities.

YEIC also says ; “Kidneys store Fear” “肾主恐”. Some fetus are sensitive, during cesarean delivery, they might get frightened with all the instruments used. Such fears stored in the Kidneys-cells and manifest in all sort of fear-related behaviors, one of which is urination problem.

(The child gets flu easily since young. Had used Chinese medicines, if not improving, use Western Medicines. )

It is the theory that excessive use of Western Medicines harm the kidneys-functionalities.

(Prefer cold drinks and foods. Sleep OK. Sometimes constipation).

As per YEIC, cold drinks and food are detrimental to the functionalities of kidneys, spleen and stomach.

(This one year, she likes to bite her fingernails.)

(She does not demand much. If she cannot get what she wants, she feels moody but she does not throw tantrum)

(If she sweats, most sweat at the head region).

(Today 10 years old, she can talk more. But still cannot express herself adequately.)

Analysis:

Because of kidneys-functionalities out of balance, and as per 5-element model, “Kidneys belong to Water “肾属水”,Liver belongs to Wood “肝属木”,The theory is Water gives rise to Wood “水生木”,Then Kidneys by-right should support Liver. But Kidneys now are deficiency, cannot support Liver. One of the Liver-function is to control emotions, especially anger and frustration. In the child’s case, Liver is not nourished by Kidneys and she cannot adequately express her emotions and thoughts.

Sweat mostly at the head region, implies Heart is heaty. By theory, “Water controls Fire”, in this case Kidneys Control Heart (fire), but kidney is weak, cannot control the fire and the fire heat up the head regions to produce sweat. (Most people experience headache, dizziness, ..) Excessive sweating at the head , harms the brain, and weaken intelligence and study ability.

YEIC also says : “Liver manifests in tendon, and finger nails, “肝主筋,其華在爪”,爪=手指甲。

Because the child cannot express adequately, and she does not use tantrum “肝主怒😡her frustration and anxiety are then expressed by biting nails.

(Mother says the child’s hands and legs not flexible)

Ancient sages observes : Hand and legs flexible imply cleverness “手脚灵活,聪明伶俐”。Cleverness is kidneys-functionalities, meaning the child has high degrees of all 5 major organs functionalities not in balance.

This is the beauty of ancient wisdom, able to connect and explain phenomena in a logical and holistic manner.

I hope we all are more committed to learn YEIC and help to improve the body internal organs functionalities, helping self and children.

As I mention many times before, special need children, eg autism, the problem is NOT the behavioral issues, but the body internal organs functionalities need to be balanced through diets, qi-movement therapy etc.

Western special need children specialists do not know the Chinese YEIC theories, they continue to use Occupational Therapy, Sensory Integration program, Speech Therapy to adjust the children behaviors. We pity the poor children.

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