Attention on Blood and Blood Pressure but not body Fluid?

In Chinese culture, there is an interesting concept called “Medicine Diet 药膳”

It is delicious foods and at the same time it is medicines.

It can be a soup, porridge, a dish, added with some simple herbs, then it becomes “Medicine Diet”.

I give a very simple example.

Maize is a simple and common food. When you peel off the leafy-skin, you see strands of fibres wrapping round the corns. These strands of fibres, washed, soak in hot water, it becomes Medicine-tea.”玉米须”

What are the properties “

Improve the body liquid metabolism. Helps to remove water retention in the body. Ease urination. Cool down kidneys, liver inflammation, helps lower high blood pressure, …

And there are many recipes involving this strands of fibers, in the form of soup, juice, porridge, each again have slightly different properties.

Most of these information were recorded thousands of years ago. Ancient sages tasted different foods to find out their properties and effect on our body.

When we have better knowledge of the change Yin and Yang in our body at different time and situations, we can do balancing using Medicine Diets, enjoy the delicious foods and keep us healthy.

Do you know that Up to 60% of the human adult body is water by weight, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water?

What do you think is the significance of our body has high percentage of water? Imagine in a city, there is water supply problem, drainage problems, flooding problem, or shortage of water problem!

We are overly concerned with blood pressure, high blood pressure. With out body having so high percentage of water, more than blood, do you pay attention to the optimal water equilibrium in the body? Do you think there is high and low water pressure problems?

3000 years ago, Yellow Emperor’s Inner classic pays equal attention to water and blood in our body, and of course the Qi. to ensure better optimal condition for health.

Body fluid must be at certain optimal equilibrium. If too little, ancient wisdom calls it “Yin Deficient”, if too much “Yin Excessive”.

The above maize fibers strand is one of the methods to balance the Yin and Yang of our body water system.

We will discuss more in our Video Training courses.
