It is encouraging to see more and more enrollments to the ancient wisdom video courses.
Many express amazement that there is not only interesting but also revolutionary ideas about health, sickness and diseases, which were advocated 3000 years ago.
With such amzement, many sign up to all the video courses concerning ancient wisdom, Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic.
However, I do realize some challenges faced by the learners.
This is because for centuries our minds are conditioned by the western science, western medicine and western nutrition theory to understand our body system in a particular manners, which is incomplete and hence not holistic.
Now the ancient wisdom presents a very different approach which can really address the fundamental issues with prevention and solutions.
But the subconscious mind, being heavily conditioned, cannot easily shift the paradigm after a few hours of the video courses. Hence practitioners will soon revert back to the old thinking pattern and not allowing the new practice to take roots.
For this reason, I encourage the learners to make good use of the video courses, i.e. these video courses are available for re-visit as many times as necessary.
Furthermore I organize a Telegram Discussion Group for members to share, discuss, more Q&A on their daily practices and more queries on the ancient theories.
By such reinforcement, paradigm shift can take roots and participant can enjoy the new practice towards well being.
Interested public are welcome to join the Telegram discussion group by signing up any of the video courses. By doing so, you have some theoritical basic to make meaningful discussion.
Please Telegram me @Andrew360q after you enrolled to any of the courses.
There are more and more such articles published that today scientists discover the functions or malfunctions of the brain is connected with the gut.
This implies brain related problems like Parkinson, dementia, autism, stokes are connected with the gut problems.
This connection and relationship are well understood 3000 years ago as per ancient wisdom “Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic”.
However today scientists using Western Medicine theory still operate with their fragmented and compartmentalized thinking, looking for micro solutions and not macro solutions.
For example, such statements “Recent research has found that bacteria in the gut can affect people’s mental state, leading to mood, cognition and behavioural problems.” lead scientists to zoom in research into the bacteria and elimination of the bacteria.
But that will not solve the fundamental problems.
Let me explain.
As per Google search :
Where is the gut found? The mouth is the first part of the gut (gastrointestinal tract). When we eat, food passes down the gullet (oesophagus), into the stomach, and then into the small intestine. The small intestine has three sections – the duodenum, jejunum and ileum.
The gut involves digestive system (mouth, stomach) and absorption system (small intestines).
Just based on the above limited information, ancient wisdom considered more than 2 variables (Stomach & Intestines) that create whatever may be the health problems.
Stomach is closely related to Spleen. Small Intestines are closely related to Heart.
As per 5-Elements Theory, Spleen / Stomach, Small Intestines / Heart are in constant interaction with Kidneys / Bladder, Lungs / Large Intestines, Liver / Gall-Bladder.
Only with all the organs functionalities are in good balance, you will not have so called bacteria in the guts.
Hence bacteria in the gut is the end result of how well you overall organs functioning. Hence it is not the cause.
What is this ancient wisdom Total Integrated Model that connects all parts of our body and mind?
A concerned mother shared the following about her 5 years old kid for advice.
Andrew, my kid’s learning is affected due to in-ability to concentrate .
His confidence is low as the teachers have not been kind to his inability to concentrate.
He cries easily. His core muscle weak and cannot sit straight to do homework
He has difficulty to wake up in the morning though he sleeps by 11 pm.
He does not have much temper .. very kind.
Just that he can’t focus and cannot complete work without being reminded.
How to help him, please?
My reply :
Thanks for the sharing.
Based on the information given, I share the following from the perspective of Ancient Wisdom.
Generally, there is overall body weakness or deficiency. (体质虚)
I suspect his Spleen and Stomach more deficient. (脾虚，胃虚),
because Spleen Consciousness is manifested in Thinking, which needs concentration. (脾主思)
Core muscle weakness and cannot sit straight to do homework, and you said “He does not have much temper .. very kind”.
Such symptoms are related to both Liver Deficiency （肝气虚）.
Not having much temper should not be taken as healthy sign. For example, if a child has no temper even he is bullied, his toys are forcibly taken from him by other boys, and he shows no temper or anger, it show weakness in Liver Qi （肝气虚）.
One of the Liver functionalities is in Muscles and tendons, which the child has weaknesses.
And Liver in in charge of Anger Emotion. （肝主怒）。
You also mentioned, “he always Gives up”
This is lacking in Will Power. And this can be due to Kidneys deficiency. Kidneys Consciousness manifests in Will Power. (肾主志)（志是志气).
There is relationship between Spleen, Liver and Kidneys as per 5 Element theory (五行学说)。
The theory says, Spleen Controls Kidneys (土克水), and Liver Control Spleen (肝克水）.
Because his kidneys are in deficiency, that affects his heart (水克火）， Heart is in charge of Consciousness. This may explain why he has difficulty to wake up in the morning although he did sleep the previous night.
All organs functionalities affect each other to various degrees with all sorts of behaviors and symptoms.
I suggest you take up the 6 essential video lessons on Ancient Wisdom (黄帝内经), starting with Food Therapy.
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.
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。
Fixed and Repeated Behaviors （3 below=1， 3-5yrs=2， 5-9yrs=1，9-12yrs=1）
Before the start of autism symptoms any high fever, flu = 2， （baby time）.
Cesarean=3， all 3 are hyper-active。
Mommy often sick, weak body constituents, high stress and emotional disturbance during pregnancy, period irregular before pregnancy = 2
Shortly after vaccination, any unusual behaviors of the child = 0
Taking part in various programs, activities (OT, Speech Therapy, Sensory Integration, etc. = 8
Time / Period attending the program ： （3 months below =2， 1 yr below =3， 5 yrs=1， 7 yrs =1）
Parents understand what method used in the various program OT, Speech Therapy, Sensory Integration, know how the specialist carry out the activities :（10% = 2， 50% = 4， 75% = 2）
How much time spent daily on the following ： IQ（20 % = 2，30% = 3， 50% = 2）
How much time spent daily on the following ：EQ（5 % = 1，20% = 1， 30% = 2， 50%=1）
（Note” Most take EQ more in controlling the child tentrum, difficult sentiment, and not balancing their emotions or developing EQ）
Later in my talk, I explain 5 Consciousness as per Ancient Wisdom, more than just EQ, which correspond to 5 body organs that determine behaviors and performance.
How much time spent daily on the following ： (BI) Body Intelligence = ??
(Note: Most take BI as Sensory Integration activities. In my talk, I explained that from Ancient Wisdom perspective, BI is on raising the Yang energy / Life Force of the child)
How much time spent daily on the following ?： ：diet（ 30% = 3， 50%=2， 70%=4）
(Note: In my talk, I explained that Ancient Wisdom perspective, diet is related to improving our bodily organ functionalities which also include 5 sensory faculties. Ancient Wisdom called it Theory of Foods & Drink, which is very different from Western Nutrition Theory)
After various programs and activities :(OT)，Speech Therapy，Sensory Integration）etc. What are the improvement performance ?：
（ 6 month period ： 5%=1， 20%=2， 30%=1， 50%=1。）
（ 3 yrs, with one 7 years ： 30%= 1， 50%=1。）
The one with 7 years intensive attendance to various programs activities, today still have speech deficiency and socializing programs problems.
In our workshop, I asked : “If we have opportunity to meet again in 5 years time, what report you can give about the progress of your autistic child?
I emphasize the importance of constant evaluation and measurement of the child progress, on whatever program attended, and not leave the child to the specialist / center day after day, year after year.
From the above information, you are welcome to share your views, discussion, your own analysis and thoughts on the above.
Subsequent to the above, I continue to take such survey in other Ancient Wisdom introduction talk. The pattern of the result is similar to the above.
There is really very little significant improvement with years of Western Education/ Therapy for Special Need children. Perhaps that is why they attend my talk.
This is regretful and sorry state, after years of hardship on the part of the parents for their love of their special need child, yet without significant result. I know of some, after 20 years of OT etc program, having their children dependent on large dose of western medicine to control the tantrum, some violence.
Many parents, after 10 years，20 years hardship, feel totally discouraged to seek anymore solution, and accept the cruel reality. They are no longer active on social media looking for solution or discussing or sharing.
Hence in the social media, mostly are young parents, actively pursuing seeking solution full heartedly. I wonder after another 20 years, what will become of them? Will they also give up hope?
I sincerely offer them a new hope based on the ancient Chinese wisdom, Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classics.
To understand how autism came about, to use the ancient wisdom theory, we need to know the basic concepts and knowledge of the Yellow Emperor, i.e. Qi, Yin Yang, Zangfu Organs, Food Therapy, Qi activation, 5-elements etc.
Then we can initiate balancing treatments to the child on daily basis. Treatments must be holistic, not doing just one thing.
