Is there fit for all healthy diet?

Glad to see much discussion among the Chinese WhatsApp group. The hot topic is on Healthy Diet.

Although there were many other discussion on Diet previously, as most are deeply influenced by the Western Nutrition Theory, it is difficult to shift the thinking to another dimension.

I will use the current discussion content to make illustration again on how YEIC view Diet differently.

One member shared he and his wife have the same diet everyday, and he think the diet taken is helpful to them.

One of the diet is Chives “韭菜”. We will use this for discussion.

As per ancient Chinese food system, the functionalities of Chives “韭菜” are as follow:

“Strengthen Spleen, Stomach, Kidneys Yang, makes one alert, help reduce excessive sweating, preserve essence.

This vegetable is suitable for most people, especially those with cold body constituent, rough skin, constipation, dry eyes etc.”

From the above, we can see that classification of foods is a per body constituents, key organs, what functionalities necessary for the healthy body.

At the same time, the Food System also highlights under what situations this food is not suitable for consumption.

1、Because Chives is Yang and heaty, those with excessive Yang body constituents, not suitable.

2、Those with poor digestion due to Stomach heat.

3、Excessive chives consumption can harm kidneys.

4、Cannot be consumed together with wines.

This is an important messages. It follows the philosophy of Middle Path, i.e. nothing, no matter how good, cannot be consumed excessively.

Many believe green vegetables and fruits are always good for the body, it is not true.

Western Nutrition Theory is based on identifying the essential elements like protein, carbohydrate, vitamins, etc. they consider protein is good for growth. But them they do not differentiate how different meat protein, e.g. mutton, pork, chickens, etc. can help in what different ways.

Ancients sages know that if you let hyperactive children, or tantrum autistic child consumes more mutton, they become more hyperactive.

Do you see that Chinese Food Theory is very logical and practical?

It tells you how different foods can help to improve your body functionalities which affect behaviors and performance.

Do you know your own Body Constituents? If not, you wouldn’t know what foods suit your!

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are explained in details in the video training. “Food Theory 饮食学说”,“Organs Functionalities 五脏六腑功能”,”Yin-Yang 阴阳”, “Body Constituents 体质。

Video training on “Body Constituents 体质 ” and “Organs Functionalities : What Western Medicine does not know 五脏六腑功能” Food Therapy just for the unique you 饮食学说”, are under construction.

Let’s talk about “High Blood Pressure” again.

From Western Medicine point of views, they consider High Blood Pressure is due to walls of blood vessels hardening, loose its elasticity and cannot hold the blood and produces excessive pressure.

Hence attention is on the quality of the blood vessel walls with highly sophisticated instruments to examine the blood vessels, with operation if complication arise, but not the blood.

There is little explanation as how the blood vessels get hardened. Some explain by the person concerned exercises excessively or work too hard.

Ancient sages did not have today sophisticated equipment and instrument to do monitoring or checking. As such there is no such term called “High Blood Pressure” in the old texts.

But ancients sages paid a great deal of attention to the various symptoms which today Western Medicine associate with High Blood Pressure. E.g. Palpitations, chest tightness, dizziness, headache, tinnitus, sore shoulders, stroke.

How does YEIC explain High Blood Pressure?

The focus is on the quality of the blood. If the bloods contain too much unwanted things, like un-removed toxin, phlegm, some bloods solidified bits and pieces, then there is blockage to the smooth flow of the blood.

Some people have qi-deficiency, always panting, no strength to speak or move, then the weak qi is unable to drive and move the heavy blood, with more exertion to move the blood to the required region eg. brain and eyes to do thinking or reading, pressure is built up. Over time, this damage the blood vessels too.

Some old people, during younger days no High Blood Pressure, only when grow old. This is because the organs functionalities are out of balance, metabolism cannot be thorough, producing much toxin in the body and create blockages to the flow of Qi and Bloods.

People with frequent depression, blood deficiency, anemia, can easily have High Blood Pressure.

Now you can see that YEIC tells us High Blood Pressure implies many things, largely our lifestyle and how to keep organs functionalities in order, i.e. Life Cultivation 养生.

You can also see the differences in approaches towards High Blood Pressure, with Western Medicine gets patients to be on lowering high blood pressure pills for life and operation in some cases.

But ancient sages focus on making good blood quality and improve the Qi to move the blood.

Very different approach, ya?

Do you think autistic child has High Blood Pressure? You tell me.

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are explained in details in the video training. “”Qi and Blood 气血”,”Life Cultivation 养生”。

Qi and Blood 气血 is particularly explained in the video “Qi (Its mystery unfolded), 5-Essential Human Life Variables”

What is Aging Process?

 


There are interesting observation and conversation with friends on the above subject matter, “What is Aging Process?”

Surely this subject matter is of concern to those past middle age, especially those retire from work.

At the same time, most admit that they cannot go into deeper discussion as they have very vague ideas what aging process is all about?

As a concept, we all know that we cannot stay young and strong forever.

But without knowing the aging process, it is difficult to ensure gradual and graceful aging. We do not know what to expect? How not to get into serious illnesses?
Western Medicine does not provide much clues on the above, except general advice : good diet, good sleep, reasonable exercise, be happy.

And that is what most people do.

Those retired have the opinion that enjoy life to the fullness NOW, be happy, go travelling. The underlying assumption is Now everything is OK, enjoy. Later, …..don’t know, until some symptoms show up. Pray that no major illnesses.

Others still have a lot of ambitions with worthy cause. Some want to do charity to help people. This is another assumption that he or she currently is fit and healthy, hence can contribute much.

Later, when and how is he or she no longer fit, age faster, with weakening body functioning ……, that need others to do charity to him or her? i.e. To take care of him or her?

Isn’t is nice to know exactly what is the aging process, then we can become more conscious how to take step to ensure gradual and graceful aging?

In my 1st published video training on “Philosophy, Yin & Yang Theory, And Application” I shared, as per ancient wisdom, Aging Process is diminishing of Yin and Yang.

If that is the proposition, then we need to understand the basic concept of Yin and Yang, and how Yin and Yang are operating constantly in our life and take action based on that understanding.

Is Aging process only the concern of the middle age people?

Once we understand the ancient wisdom, we realize that we should implement the Life Cultivation in balancing Yin and Yang for babies and young children so that they have a better foundation to ensure gradual and graceful aging process.
You are welcome to learn from the following video training, what is Yin and Yang.

What is pain all about?

Today we discuss more the concept and illustration of Yin-Yang.

The theory says that only with balanced Yin-Yang, we can be healthy in mind, body and spirit.

We use an illustration to discuss Yin-Yang.

The word of “Pain” in western culture is “pain” by itself. But in Chinese culture, there are two words to describe “Pain”, called “TengTong” “疼痛”。

These two characters represent different manifestation of pain, and it carries meaning of Yin-Yang.

The character Tong “痛” consists of two parts, the outer part represents bed. Meaning the person is in pain and resting on bed. And The inner part is another character “甬” “Yong”, meaning spring water flow. If the spring water is blocked, then it is abnormal and resulted in something negative, i.e. pain.

And YEIC has the concept of Qi, which is like spring water flow, constantly moving, and should not be blocked, otherwise illnesses arise.

Most of the time, the Qi flow is blocked due to wrong diets, unbalanced emotions like worries, anger, fear etc.

内经说 :“不通则痛,痛则不通。”

Then the other character, “疼” “Teng”. Again the outer part of the character represent bed, and the inner part “冬” “dong” represent winter, cold, something external that attacks the body and resulted in pain.

For example, excessive coldness causes blood to be stagnant, not flow easily, and pain resulted. It can also be internal “Cold” generated by the body, the person concerned often feel cold, even in warm weather.

Often females period pain is a result of internal cold generated, which can come from diets of intrinsic cold in nature, or depression, suppression of emotions.

Hence Teng “疼” (one type of pain) represents cold in nature, cold wind, cold flow in motion, and it fits the definition of Yang, (constant flow).

And Tong “痛” (another type of pain) represents something blocked, stagnant, and it fits into the definition of Yin.

Now we can imagine the misery and difficulty of autistic child, they have no language to express their discomfort felt within. It can be Yin Tong “痛” pain, or Teng “疼” Yang pain.

Again compared with western culture and western medicine, no such differentiation is made on pain.

With the above YEIC concepts, treatment can be more focused e.g. to dissolve the blockages so that blood can flow easily, whereas Western Medicine usually just administer pain-killer.

You can see that YEIC has formed a part of Chinese Culture, with Chinese characters taking up the concepts of the ancient sages.

Ancient sages believe that Life cannot be divorced from Yin-Yang.

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 Theory 阴阳学说”, “Pain in two concepts 疼痛” ,“Blockages cause pain 不通则痛,痛则不通”,”活血化瘀”。

Learning ABC before writing an Essay

It sounds obvious.

Not knowing the alphabets, how to communicate and write an essay.

Not knowing a language, how to understand the underlying message.

Sometimes, we operate without being aware of such simple logic.

I give an example.

After being given a prescription by a Western Medicine doctor for an illness, the patient quickly checks at the internet, for more information on the medicine given. The patient finds some extra information regarding the medicine, which the doctor did not mention. The patient is worried about that information. On the second day, the patient visited the doctor again to challenge him on his prescription.

The patient know the language of the medicine, though not too technical in details, but sufficient for him to know the pro and con. This is the challenges faced by the Western Medicine doctors.

If the patient visits a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) doctor. When given the prescription, the patient has hard time to understand the prescription after spending long hours with Google search. There are strange language and metaphor used. For example, the Liver is on fire. Or there is too much Evil Qi, or the Yin Yang no balance. Or Wood attacks Earth.

The patient is at a loss. He cannot challenge the TCM doctor.

This is because the patient does not know the ABC, the language of the Chinese medical treatment system.

Some health-conscious people, or have some not too serious symptoms in the body, want to learn from the ancient Chinese health system, do good deal of research and reading. These people are often puzzled by the strange language. Qi Deficiency. Yin Deficiency. Yang Excessiveness. Stomach Qi or Essence depleting.

Soon these learners give up.

Not knowing the alphabets, how to communicate and write an essay.

Not knowing a language, how to understand the underlying message.

For the above cases, my work o Video Training Courses on the Ancient Wisdom, Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, has the purpose to provide basic ABC language to help learners to explore and understand better their performance, behaviours or health issues based on ancient wisdom.

More than providing the language, but also the knowledge how to do self Yin Yang balancing, e.g. Through food therapy, activating Qi, raising consciousness.

Can you succeed just by yourself? No need collective contribution?

“Uric Acid is the byproduct of metabolism. A healthy body will discharge such by-products through urine, stools and sweats.

When there is poor functioning of metabolism, uric acid can be generated and give rise to problems like gout, pain in the joints, and with long period of accumulation in the body, many serious illnesses can develop.

A proper functioning of metabolism requires the well-functioning of all the 5 key-organs, not one less.

What functionalities?

Well, foods must be well digested, transformed to nutrients for the body growth and activities. This require good function of Spleen and Stomach.

Lungs and Liver Qi must be able to transport the nutrients to various parts of the body.

Small intestines must be able to absorb the nutrients and send the waste products to the Large Intestines.

And Kidneys must be able to filter the liquids and send the urine to the bladder etc.

We have discussed often, your excessive thoughts and emotions can also affect the above processes.

When any of the above processes is out of balance or not functioning well, we have many signals, including production of uric acid.

Many people, especially those with gout problem, direct their attention to what diets to avoid that can cause high level of uric acids. Hence they spend time, energy and money on control, avoidance, or reduce certain diets etc. Which certainly is tedious and tiring.

With all these efforts, what about what diets to ensure no cancers, diabetes, Parkinson, … ?

Isn’t it more important to focus on well functioning of all the 5-key organs functionalities so as to protect you from all illnesses?

Western Medicine doctor recommends taking plenty of water. This is control and avoidance strategy. It appears the life purpose focusing on gout and uric acid as enemies to be fought or avoided.

Perhaps such life attitude and paradigm should be changed. As per YEIC Life Cultivation, we focus on overall improvement of the body, mind and emotions and good functioning of all 5 major organs. This is holistic approach, there is no enemy to fight.

If we follow the Western Medicine doctor’s advice to take in more water, have we also considered can the kidneys and bladder take this extra burden?

For those with Yang-deficiency body constituent, taking in more water worsen the health condition. Can we afford to take care of one, and harm the overall system?

Life Cultivation 养生 aims to focus on diets that suit different person’s body constituent, the person lifestyle including exercise or not, personality, psychology etc. There is no one-size fits all.

The principles of YEIC are simple, But it takes great deal of learning to acquire the 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 “Functionalities of key 5 organs五脏六腑功能”,”Body Constituent 体质”,”Holistic Approach 整体观”,”Life Cultivation 养生”,”Yang Deficiency Body Constituent 阳虚体质”
“Words in Chinese are texts from the book YEIC, 3000 years ago.”

Spread Ancient Wisdom to the Whole World

Ancient Wisdom Today Well Being

In promoting 3000 years Chinese ancient wisdom, Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, 黄帝内经, which addresses all the major aspects of our life : Performance, Health, Illnesses, Emotions, Psychology, Consciousness, Physiology, I have been conducting training classes and doing one to one coaching to clients with all sorts of issues.

Last month a friend introduced an internet platform Udemy, whereby they have 24 millions students / learners eager to learn something in life, I get very excited with the potential reaching out to the whole world.

I plan to design the ancient wisdom in video training course, module by module.

Just a few days ago, my first video training course was approved. That provides great encouragement to me.

I found some great advantages using video training course. For example, to explain the fundamental concept of Yin Yang, how is the concept used to observe and understand the world and various phenomena, how Yin Yang changes taking place in our body, mind and emotions, how Yin Yang balance comes about to achieve harmony, …. I realize that if I do the explanation in the classroom, I may spent less than 10 min. as there are many other topics to cover in the 1-2 training days.

But in the case of video training, I have the luxury to spend more than 1 hour to bring the abstract concept of Yin Yang to deriving principles and application, and explain in details “What is Qi”? for 1.5 hours

I am now designing the 3rd module.

It is real great fun and inspiring.

You are welcome to listen and watch a few free preview video and study the video course objectives and program outlines.

Dilemma of Western Nutrition Theory

*”Calcium pills raise heart attack risks by 30%”*

This is another conflicting report against some long established nutritious product. Certainly more will come.

This is today dilemma of Western Medicine and Western Nutrition theory.

They have simple brain and naive mind.

They think that when the body lacks calcium then inject your body with more calcium.

Even engineers knows that with all raw materials input, the manufacturing process produces a new product, not give you back the raw materials.

Very silly ya for nutritionist to treat the body system as non-processing.

Suppose a family is unhappy. It appears that the unhappiness is caused by lack of money. So you give them a lot of money. Do you think they attain happiness ever after?

Surely not. Often easily obtained money destroy their life. What is important is the knowledge and skills to generate the required finance by themselves.

Our new Malaysian government sees the problem of NEP now, and they try hard to make progressive changes.

Similarly our body system must have the capability to generate what is good for healthy bone structure.

How does YEIC understand and treat bone related problems?

First of all, ancient sages observe bone weakness (osteoporosis, walking difficulty, joints pain) , memory loss (dementia), deterioration of brain power, hearing problems etc are related mostly to aging. And they all belong to governing power of Kidneys-sub-system.

They also observe that good Lungs and Large Intestine functionalities improve Kidneys-functions.

They also observe that poor Spleen / Stomach system weakens Kidneys functions. Do you not observe the same, aged people have poor digestive system?

The above is governed by 5-element Theory. 五行学说。

So how do we strengthen bone structures. It must be strengthening the overall body system. And by Life Cultivation 养生, ancient sages give us plenty simple and practical methods to improve the concerned problem.

Interestingly by practicing Life Cultivation, you improve the overall quality of your life, not just weak bones problems.

Do you think ancient sages are wiser and more scientific?

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the 2-day YEIC training class , or online training for learners outside Malaysia “5-ElementTheory 五行学说”, “Life Cultivation 养生”
“Words in Chinese are texts from the book YEIC, 3000 years ago.”
