He was the first doctor doing the emergency intervention during SARS 2003, with Chinese herbs treatment, fatality rate brought down to near zero from 11%, now he is in charge of Wuhan virus.
His specialty is in “Integrated Traditional and Western Medicine in intensive and critical care” and “Emergency treatment using Chinese Medicine”.
In this interview, Dr. 刘清泉 shared his involvement, treatments of Wuhan patients, and derived some patterns for diagnosis and treatment, discussed with the medical authority to come up with a structural framework for treatment of patients.
In this interview Dr. 刘清泉 also explained the virus-induced-disease is categorized as “湿毒之邪”.(Dampness-evil)
This concept is not easily understood if you do not have knowledge of the 3000 years ancient wisdom called Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, which provides the foundation to Chinese Medicine.
This concept is linked to another concept, Body Constituents 体质， which is absent from western medicine knowledge.
There are 9 types of Body Constituents, with one of them called Dampness-Heat Body Constituent. And the virus thrives in this internal body environment.
We all have different combination of Body Constituents, with varying degree of deficiencies, arising from the foods we consume, weather conditions, emotional imbalance, stress, psychology and in-appropriate exercises, etc.
While the medical specialists try their best to remove the dampness and fever-associated symptoms on patients, it is important we all need to learn and practice balancing our own Body Constituents, not only for prevention of this virus, but all future diseases.
For those curious wanting to know more about the ancient wisdom, welcome to
Year 2003 SARS lasted 5 months.
SARS had a fatality ratio of 11%.
Importance of Containment and controlling spread.
Importance of basic hand and respiratory hygiene.
SARS ended in 5 months implies the virus gets weakened over time. Hence TIME is required to eliminate the SARS.
SARS falality ratio brought down from 11% to almost zero by the use of Chinese herbs, first tried in Guangdong province then nation-wise.
Some succumb to virus attack more easily than others due to weak “immune system” of the said persons.
How do you know how strong or weak is your “immune system”?
Ancient Wisdom (Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic) teaches us “immune system” (正气）is manifested in your Body Constituents, 体质。 Hence we need to identify what types of Body Constituents we uniquely have and do the balancing and conditioning using food therapy, Qi exercises and emotional healing.
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.
Learner finds that there is a mix of different types of Body Constituents relevant to herself, with different scores.
From the Body Constituent questionnaires, she also realizes there are many more symptoms experienced, and not just sleeping problems.
The following is some discussion.
In your case, focus on the one with highest score e.g. Phlegm-damp Body Constituent 痰湿体质。
The video course also explains if Phlegm is not arrested, and cumulative in different parts of the body, e.g. at heart, it may cause insomnia, if at the brain, it many cause stroke etc..
The questionnaires give details of symptoms e.g. oily face, sticky feeling, joints pain, constipation, cannot sweat easily ….
These symptoms experienced are important Indicators to watch up for, while doing various therapies 调理， until improvement is made.
Since this particular video course is on Food Therapy, then the learner should refer to the tables given indicating what foods to avoid, what foods to consume.
The video course also gives details on Food Plan.
Do the above for a few months to get the new diet plan into routine.
Later learn and apply other therapies.
(A follow up communication ).
You Stagnant Qi Body Constituent （气郁体质） score is rather high xxxx.
The main cause of Stagnant Qi is your management of your emotions.
you mentioned you are emotionally dependent on others, .
being soft hearted in doing charity,
lack of decisiveness in making life decision,
Stagnant Qi, later, can lead to Blood Stasis 血瘀, (as explained in my video), and Blood Stasis have a lot of problems to the body, imagine your blood too thick, full of toxin, cannot flow easily … blood stasis in the brain causes memory loss, in the heart causes heart attack, at the leg causes water retention and legs weakness etc. etc.)
You can better realize 3000 yrs ancient wisdom links Personality with health issues. And we all have imperfect personality, hence with different health challenges.
Note: 200 yrs Western Medicine does not have such theory linking personality with diseases, Western Medicine focuses on identifying more and more new virus and kill them.
Being aware of the above on Personality is important, we cannot change such behaviors overnight.
Hence you start with developing discipline in the Food Therapy you learned so far, and later the Qi Exercise …by practicing such discipline, you enhance your emotional stability.
