What has blood got to do with your mind, emotion and consciousness?

Not long ago we talked about a story of the famous Chinese medicine practitioner Zhang Xichun 张锡纯 during the late Qing Dynasty, with his student-patient had 4 nose bleeding in a day. With Ginger as the major herb, he illness of the child was cured.

Today we talk about “Bleeding” and “Spleen / Stomach” relationship

YEIC says, Spleen has another function, i.e. Spleen governs Blood. “脾主统血”。

Here “govern” means in control of the blood in the blood vessels, and not flow anywhere the blood likes, nor should blood flow to the nose, eyes, lungs etc. in a healthy condition.

For example, for ladies, blood from period should flow downwards, not upwards to the nose etc. Often a doctor will ask the ladies any nose bleeding problem, if the ladies present her periods as problems.

However, if the Spleen is deficient, or out of balance, then the blood will flow in an uncontrolled manner..

In Western Medicine, there is no such concept as mentioned above. As such, for bleeding problem, the solution will not be directed at treating the Spleen,

Let me pose a question, What are the functions of Blood?

Besides nourishing the body and growth, another important function is supply energy for mental and emotional activities.

Hence if there is too much mental or emotional activities, much bloods and body fluids are consumed or exhausted.

Now we see the important function of Blood. Then if the Spleen is out of balance, the bloods cannot be directed in the useful manners, but wasted.

In the case of autistic children, how do you figure out the relationship between blood and his learning capability?

Do you know how to take care of your Spleen? What diets are good for proper functioning of Spleen?

What has blood got to do with your mind, emotion and consciousness?

In Western Medicine, blood is just blood, nothing to do with your mind or consciousness. But how to explain a person with pale face, obvious blood deficiency, and that person has little spirit, energy or drive in life?

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 governs Blood 脾主统血”,”Mental Activities 精神”
“Words in Chinese are texts from the book YEIC, 3000 years ago.”

What are Key Messages behind diverse symptoms?

Today we have a case analysis, with limited information provided by a group member in the Chinese WhatsApp group.

The following are some of the symptoms : Sinusitis, feel giddy while driving, after meal feel giddy too. Not able to focus and concentrate.

Sinusitis problem since young.

If sinusitis is a hereditary problem then the person concerned should find an effective and complete healing method so as not to pass down to the next generation, not to accept it as it is.

Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic(YEIC) says : Lungs functionalities also manifest at the nose. Lungs and Large Intestines have paired relationship.

As per 5-element theory, Lungs are represented by Metal, and Metal controls Wood (think of metal axe chops wood). And Liver is represented by Wood. Then there is relationship between Lungs and Liver.

5-Element theory, “Earth gives rise to Metal”, Spleen is represented by Earth-element, meaning Spleen nourishes Lungs.

Hence sinusitis problem can be related to nose, lungs, spleen and liver.

We can see that symptoms can be related to more than one organ. Then we need to search for more clues for relationship identification.

For example, with sinusitis problem since young, was the child attacked by cold too often, taking too much antibiotic medicines due to frequent sickness? What diets system used that make worse the situation?

Any stress or pressure from e.g. homework, parents and teachers. Especially autistic children, parents and teachers not only have high expectation but with speed on the various therapies employed. This cause more stress and pressure to children.

Because as per YEIC, emotions, stress, personality affect different organs. Example, anxiety affects the Lungs functionalities, which is relevant in the above case.

Today symptoms as mentioned above, indicate symptoms at childhood not entirely eradicated, coupled with lack of knowledge on Life Cultivation., more symptoms arise.

Sinusitis problem since young indicate Lung-deficiency, which needs to draw more energy (YEIC called Qi-Blood) from Spleen (Earth) . Spleen is supposed to nourish Lungs, but not able to do so, as now Spleen becomes weak.

When Spleen is weak, it cannot produce enough Qi-blood to supply to the brain to do mental work. YEIC also says, Spleen, one of the functions, is Thinking. Now the person concerned cannot think and concentrate well.

As the case is a female, other information is required, eg. how is the period, flow, amount of bloods, any blood stasic?

Because YEIC also says, Livers stores and detox blood. From the period performance, we can also deduce to what extent is Liver functions are affected.

The 5-element theory also provides us as a guide, Metal Controls Wood, i.e. Lungs Control Liver. If Lungs are weak, it causes imbalance to the Liver.

Now we see that, : sinusitis problem is related to the Lungs-function, feel giddy while driving, after meal feel giddy too (related to inadequate supply of Qi-blood from the Spleen and Liver). Not able to focus and concentrate relates to Spleen, with one of the functions, in Thinking.

With good understanding of YEIC theories, we can related various symptoms to the key body organs system and we only need to improve the organs functionalities.

What are Key Messages behind diverse symptoms?

Don’t let various symptoms drive you mad looking for solution to each symptom.

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the 2-day YEIC training class , or online training for learners outside Malaysia “Lungs manifests at Nose 肺主鼻”,”Metal Controls Wood金克木”,”Earth nourishes Metal 土生金”,Various emotions affect different organs 情志(喜、怒、憂、思、悲、恐、驚) 伤脏腑, ”Diet system 饮食” ,”Cold 寒”,”

Joy felt at heart. What about fears, anxiety by which organs?

Today we discuss more relationship between body organs and emotions.

Western scholars and therapists, who study Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, place more emphasis on the psychological aspects in relation to the body system.

On this note, Eastern Traditional Medicine, TCM doctors, do not consider emotions and psychology too much in treating patients.

Early we discussed “Spleen and Stomach in pair”, Spleen is Yin and Stomach is Yang. Spleen belongs to Earth-element. Stomach function is to dissolved foods, Spleen function is to transform digested foods to minute particles as nutrients for the body. (previous articles)

Spleen and Stomach also have psychological and emotional functions.

Fetus in mother’s womb depends on nutrients / energy supply from mother. Upon delivery the baby depends on his or her lungs to breathe and consume mother’s milk to grow.

This is a dramatic experience for the baby, learning to grow on by himself or herself.

And this self-learning process depends on the maturing process of Spleen and Stomach so as to take in other foods, besides milk.

But for 9 months pregnancy period, the fetus felt secure and happy in mother’s womb, with great emotional attachment to the mother.

If the Spleen Yin too strong, even after a few years, the child still feels very attached to the mother, and would not socialize with others, in school or at home.

On the opposite, if Spleen Qi is weak, the bonding between the baby / child is very weak. This is the phenomenal most occurred to autistic children, they do not like mother or parents to hug them. Spleen weakness also reflects in gastrointestinal problems.

When Stomach (Yang) able to take in more variety of foods, correspondingly the child’s learning sphere enlarges, and less dependence on the mother. And and child can socialize with more people.

YEIC also says : Spleen / Stomach has function in Thinking “脾主思“。

Hence for the autistic children with the above mentioned problems, the solutions lie in strengthening the Spleen and Stomach.

With good understanding of YEIC knowledge, parents can help heal the child.

Now, do you see the relationship and connectivity of Spleen / Stomach / Growth process / dependency / independence / thinking / socializing?

This is how Western therapists / psychologists, after studying Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, are able to provides more psychological aspects i.e. the Mind-Body-Emotion into the YEIC integrated theory.

Do you now find it fascinating about 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 “Yin-Yang 阴阳”,”Qi-blood 气血”,”5 Consciousness 五神”,”5 Emotions 情志”,”Spleen criticallity in growth 脾为后天之本”,,。。。

Energy for work, mental activity. What Energy?

Today we talk about Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic and YOU.

In our WhatsApp group, most members are young till middle age. You are on your own or husband or wife to your partner, parents to children, children to your parents.

You work hard to support self and families. Responsibilities are not light.

You have your own preference, styles, strategies with your unique characters, attitudes and psychology to meet all the life challenges. In all these, you need to spend “Energy” to attend to your activities towards your goals in life.

What is Energy?

How do we consume energy so that we remain healthy and not get sick?

Different strategies in energy consumption due to your own preferences, what tell-tales signs let you know you could be out of balance?

How do we get energy replenishment?

As we are influenced by Western Science and Medicine, we may not treat the above questions more deeply and seriously, but just a simple notion that good diets (as per Western Nutrition Theory), good exercise, sleep well, do regular medical check up, keep us healthy.

Now if we take a closer look at people we know close to us, they have the same above notions, but they get sick, some seriously sick, or die young,how come?

Could it be that the above notion are too abstracts, too vague?

What does Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic(YEIC) say about this?

Ancient sages do not use the term “Energy”, but Yin-Yang.

They classify the Yin-Yang as follow。

Yin = Blood, Body fluid / hormone, Essence

Yang = Qi, Consciousness / Mind

The above variables need to be in balance, otherwise illnesses occur.

When there is some small symptoms, pain, discomfort, Western Medicine doctors may say no problems, but as per YEIC, it is considered Yin-Yang out of balance, if not treated, it leads to serious diseases.

Yin-Yang (or Energy) comes from parents, or hereditary, called Essence, the rest come from digested and transformed foods, and air we breathe.

Note: as discussed early, not till the foods can be properly digested and transformed to energy, the foods are not called Nutritious Foods.

 

What energy for physical work and what energy for mental work?

These Yin-Yang (energy) helps our body growth, carry out mental or laborious activities. And we need to constantly replenish with fresh foods and air and sleep.

When we carry out labors work, we use more Body-fluid energy

When we carry out more mental work / emotional activities, we use more Blood-energy.

At younger age, or youth, we have more abundant Yin-Yang energies, what we called good immune system.

But even at younger age,, if we consume excessive Yin-Yang energies, we may feel alright, not sickness, actually the energy comes from the stored energy called Essence at the Kidneys, which is meant for old age pension. Hence today more young people age faster and they have illnesses similar to old people with poor health.

YEIC says : “Kidneys store Essence”

Different personalities and strategies in excessive consumption of Yin-yang energy, particularly Essence, energy consumption patterns are different.

Let’s talk about introvert and extrovert personalities.

Extrovert personality expresses in strong leadership, creativity, controlling, .. they consume more Liver and Spleen energies.

Introvert personality, conservative, not taking initiative, they deplete their Kidneys and Lungs energies faster.

All these are examples of imbalance in Yin and Yang.

We need suitable Food-System to do the balancing, what foods to improve Liver functions, or Kidney functions etc.

Now do you see how different is the YEIC food system as compared with Western Nutrition Theory.

Do you see YEIC gives us much clearly guidelines about healthy living, certainly not vague or abstracts, do you not 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 “Yin Yang阴阳”,”Blood, Fluid, Essence, Qi and Consciousness 血,津液,精,气,神,”,”5 emotions and consciousness 五神”,”情志”,”Liver stores Anger “, “Kidneys store Fear 肾藏精”,。。。。

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 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 assoicated with the function of Kidenys “肾藏志”,Joy and happinesses are assoicated with the funciton 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”,。。。 。。。

Excessive compassion becomes problems!

Many have hearts of sympathy to others’ sufferings. What happen if it is excessive sympathy?

When come across a beggar, she feels guilt, feel uncomfortable. She must give some money to the beggar to feel at ease, and to be able to sleep at night, though the sleep is still not at peace.

Many see suffering in the world feel helpless, not able to do much except by broadcasting such news at their Facebook, calling all to pray for them.

As per YEIC, it is considered such people’s hearts are “Heart Deficient and cold”, implying “Qi blood insufficient”.

Often such deficiency arises from lack of love and care during childhood. They project such “lack” onto the suffering people around.

Due to “deficiency” she desires for love and care with great intensity. Whoever gives her a little bit of help, she considers such person committed to love her till eternity. Later, if happen they get married, she holds the ultimate belief that he loves her wholeheartedly, even if he abuses and hurts her badly, until she cannot bear any longer, she may commit suicide. Or, her blind devotion turns into hatred and kills him.

Such described relationship, though different in degree, is not uncommon.

Her dreams are often of sad scenes, with red color scheme, or abandoned dogs, .. or forever in search for something, or in a large empty room.

She prefer cold foods and drinks, and that make her condition worse.

(“Cold / hot is not what is measurable with thermometer, but as Chinese understanding of intrinsic cold or hot)

Whereas for a healthy person with adequate Qi-blood, his reaction to the suffering people is different. He has good self confidence, positively learning new knowledge and skills so as to be able to help those suffering more effectively.

Teach people how to fish and not give them fish.

Autistic child with “Heart Deficiency and coldness” is more withdrawn, hiding in his World of Autism, not able to socialize.

YEIC says “Heart stores Consciousness, 神 Spirit ”, due to deficiency and coldness, the consciousness is unable to operate.

When parents with autistic child learn YEIC, the Life Cultivation, 养生之道,they would give the child more Yang foods, and other therapies to increase “Qi-blood”.

If the parents continue with Western Nutrition Theory, the autistic child’s conditions get worse.

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

” Body Organs Functionalities 五脏六腑功能”,”Life Cultivation 养生” ,”Heart Difficiency & Coldness 心虚寒”,”Heart Stores Consciousness 心藏神”,

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”
