Aging with difficult behaviors

I had a coaching case of an old lady, whose adult son’s patience has been stretched by her to a limit. The old lady for the last year or so, became very temperamental, scolding the in-laws and the maid and accusing the son for stealing her money, and wanted her to die soon.

The old mother has pain here and there, discomfort every day which she complains non-stop. The son and family try their very best to accommodate her, bring her to clinic and hospitals.

But nothing improves. And the son wonders it is because of her psychological issues and calls me for help.

I also come across some adult children, with such difficult case, lost their patience and hit the old parents, which they regret greatly later.

After my coaching session with the old mother, I explained to the family it is not psychological issues but her body organs system deteriorate badly, with lots of imbalances, and these affect the mood and behaviors.

This is similar to autistic child’s behavioral problems arising from physiological imbalances or called Yin-Yang imbalance.

This is the key principle of YEIC : psychology and physiology affecting each other.

Both the old motner and the adult children do not know YEIC Life Cultivation 养生 principles, meaning if the old lady knows YEIC, and if she practices Life Cultivation before her old age, her body internal system, though may deteriorate, but in a more balanced manner. (In my previous articles, I mentioned how emotions affect organs, like Anger affects Liver, Fear affects Kidneys), ..

And the children do not know YEIC and they hope doctors can help the mother, but doctors can’t. Because Western Medicine nevers considers psychology and emotion as part of the body organs systems.

Some people, without Life Cultivation, when come to old age, they may not manifest in behavioral problems, but illnesses like diabetes, Parkinson, cancers etc.

I suggest to the adult children and in-law to learn YEIC so as to apply Life Cultivation for their mother. One cannot depend on medicine and doctors (Western Medicine or TCM) forever. But, like most people, the children expect me to give a magical pill or solution, without them having to learn new things with application.

This is a common mindset of people. “Too busy with life, if sick, see doctors”. This is very different from YEIC, which stress the importance on Life Cultivation to prevent sickness.

It is difficult for me to convince them, nor do I want to convince them, but only explain to them. Obviously the adult children do not think what may happen to them when they grow old. Most people assume, today my health is quite Ok, I should be ok in the future. Is that so?

I see the adult children and in-law still busy sending the old grumbling mother from clinic to TCM doctors to hospitals.

It is pitiful people get caught in vicious circle without any breakthrough.

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the video training courses , …

“5 Consciousness and 5 Organs 五神对应五脏” “Emotions and Organs 情志”,”Life Cultivation 养生”,”Functionalities of Organs 脏腑功能”,

“Words in Chinese are texts from the book YEIC, 3000 years ago.”

Self Healing on Post-stroke Depression, Restores Function

This is an interesting article “Acupuncture Reduces Post-Stroke Depression, Restores Function

The experiment conducted (using acupuncture) had chosen the following acupoints for Post-Stroke Depression, Restores Function

  • Baihui (GV20)百会穴
  • Sishencong (MHN1) 四神聪
  • Taixi (KD3)太溪穴
  • Neiguan (PC6) 内关穴
  • Hegu (LI4)合谷穴
  • Taichong (LV3)太冲穴
  • Zusanli (ST36)足三里穴
  • Xuehai (SP10)血海穴

The suggested acupoints also reveal the respective meridians and hence zangfu organs functionalities.

This is helpful for the patients to carry out their own focused Life Cultivation practice e.g.

Using Food Therapy to also focus on Pericardium, Large Intestine, Kidneys, Liver, Spleen and Stomach, (as per above suggested Meridians).

And also using Qi-exercises to address the above said meridians including the Strange Flow meridian (MHN1).

Not forgetting using the many self-healing methods, particularly moxibustion, which the patient can do for himself or herself.

Whether the patient has access to good acupuncturist or not,

Whether the patient is already under a good acupuncturist treatment, it is important the patient carry out self-healing and balancing work, 阴阳调理。

Why?

It is because the patient needs to activate his or her Consciousness 五神, his passion and love of his or her own life, the motivation to get better.

Such raised Consciousness surely helps to speed up recovery.

Awakening the World

Greetings.

I am happy to announce that another video course on “Ancient Wisdom Today Well Being” is published, i.e.

“Meridians, Qi Exercise & Many Self Help Healing Methods”

In this video course, we first discuss about Western Education on Exercise for Health. With critical examination, we find that the concepts and ideas conveyed (that almost affect the whole world population) are limiting, some misleading and in most cases cannot improve health, some in the long run damage health at old age, and some can be fatal.

This is especially so revealing when we study understanding about Exercise for Health as presented by the Ancient Wisdom

We discuss the underlying Theory of the Ancient Wisdom, in what way, Qi Exercise improve health and in what specific way for people with different health issues.

With knowledge on many other self-help healing methods, we acquire power in our own hands to improve our health, or even to practice as part of Life Cultivation for autistic child or diseases like Parkinson, cancers etc.

As per another video course on “Food Therapy” we realize that it is the same Governing Theory of the ancient wisdom on Qi Exercise for Health and Food Theory. Meridian system is part of the Central Theory.

This is what is lacking in Western Medicine and Western Nutrition Theory, there is no coherent integrated Theory.

For those who enrolled to these video training courses on Ancient Wisdom for Today Well Being, do you see that, practically the whole world is misguided about the notion of Exercise for Health and Diets for Health?

Yet, we know Exercise and Diets are important. But we need good and clear direction for our daily practices.

Isn’t it important to wake up the whole world?

Tantrum / Autism Not Behavioral Problem

We had discussed some people with little or no Will Power, nor Intention to set up a clear and compelling vision as life goal. And we attributed that to the weakness in Kidneys Qi / energy.

We also have the opposite. Excessive determination and Will Power, wanting even to conquer everything in the whole world..

As such they have problem to prioritize and focus well, resulting in achievement in little or nothing.

How do we explain the above from Yellow Emperor”s Inner Classic perspectives?

We start explaining using the 5-element Theory.

Kidneys belong to Water. When the water is strong and excessive, moving in all direction, then the water is not under good control.

As per 5-element theory, Earth can Control Water. For example, when the river water is overflowing, a dam (earth) can be used to control the running water.

Kidneys are represented by Water and Spleen is represented by Earth. And Spleen has the function of Thinking and Analysis. Then much thinking and analysis are required to chart a clearer and manageable life direction to manage.

If the Thinking capability is not well functioning, it also implies the Spleen, physiologically not in good balance.

We can use this Model to observe and understand some behavioral pattern of an autistic child. Hyperactive, throwing tantrum, not able to focus well in study.

The child uses a lot of Kidneys-energy, with persistence / will power in demanding what he or she wants, But he is weak in Spleen / Stomach energy.

Tantrum may appear behavioral problem, but it is not. It is physiological problems that need to be addressed first, i.e. the Spleen and Stomach functionalities.

With more knowledge gained from Yellow Emperor”s Inner Classic , we can then help the autistic child to strengthen the functionalities of Spleen and Stomach with the appropriate diets that suit his or her body constituents.

From the above example, we see that kidneys problems need treatment at Spleen and Stomach also. So unlike Western Medicine who does not see relationship among organs.

We have our own experiences that it is not easy to balance Spleen and Stomach. There are so many delicious foods as temptation. Furthermore too much thinking and worries, Spleen and Stomach get attacked all the time.

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are explained in details in the video training.“Organs Functionalities 五脏六腑”, “5-elements theory 五行学说 ” ,”Earth controls Water 土克水” “Kidneys represented by Water 肾属水”,”Spleen represented by Earth 脾属土” ,”Kidneys like Hercules 肾为大力士”, “Liver manifests in anger 肝主怒?“,”Liver likes radiating with 肝主疏泄”

Life Purpose supported by Physiology

In my hundreds of coaching cases, many are seeking meaningful and purposeful life engagement. Different people express and manifest differently. Some do not seem to be interested in meaningful engagement with life.

A lady feels angry and lost due to her husband having an affair. During the coaching process, she describes her marriage life as “nothing joyful or exciting, nor depressing” until the recent issue.

Both husband and wife has his or her own duty to perform, making an earning, taking care of children. There is no common platform of interest and sharing, nor compelling vision forwards.

I asked : “What do you think is happy marriage?”

She answered : “There should be no extramarital affair.”

There was another case, lovers for years. One day the male partner decided to end the relationship.

I asked about their years of courtship. What they did together. She answered : “Eat, drink, shopping, watching movies”.

One employee, due to difficult economic situation, lost his job. I asked : “During your work, what made you feel excited, proud, or any achievement felt?”

Answer : “No lah. Just follow the boss’s instruction to do the work.”

It seems making a living is more for survival sake, no other purpose and meaning. As long as life is smooth sailing, everything is OK. Until some negative happening.

Having a purpose Life Direction and hence the Intention, is the function of Spleen.

And having Will Power to purse what one’s belief or dream is the function of the Kidneys.

Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, the ancient wisdom, says : “Kidneys store Will Power” “Spleen stores Intention”

Intention and Will Power are two of the 5 Consciousness.

And Consciousness is related to the body physiology. A person who is often sick, with weak body, always feels tired walking a few steps, surely his or her Consciousness levels are low.

How do you make observations of your autistic child’s Intention and Will Power? What about Parkinson’s sufferers?

More detailed discussion on relationship between psychology and physiology is as per video training course “Organs Functionalities (What Western Medicine does not know)

This discussion involves a few key concepts which are explained in details in the video training.“Organs Functionalities 五脏六腑”, “Consciousness 五神 ” , “Kidneys store Will Power 肾藏志”,”Spleen stores Intention 脾藏意“

Combine Western Science and Ancient Wisdom to find clues to illnesses like stroke, Parkinson, Dementia.

From the Western Science we get the fact that :  Up to 60% of the human adult body is water by weight, the brain is composed of 73% water.

What is the function of the brain having 73% water?

We shall discuss with simple logic.

3000 years ago, ancient wisdom as per Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, says, the brain is filled with Sea or Ocean. They had the notion that the brain is in fluid medium, “脑为髓之海”, though they did not have the technology to measure the actual amount. But they knew like what today scientists know.

Why brain has so much water or fluid content?

We can say that logically the brain needs a lot of energy to function, to think, to analyse, to co-ordinate all stimuli and information to create sensible perception and make sense of reality.

So far you are OK with these logic presented. Ya?

In my free Video training (Simplicity & Practicality of Ancient Wisdom on Health), I presented the notion that the brain need energy, and energy is a rather abstract concept, not practical for usage, and replace with the 3000 years notion of Qi-Blood.

Hence the brain needs a lot of Qi-blood (energy) to function well.

You will accept the Blood as needed, but not Qi concept at this junction. I invite you to enroll the video training “Qi (its mystery unfolded), 5-Essential Human Life Variables”.

For the time being I go alone with your current paradigm that much blood is needed to the brain. You don’t want to talk about Qi. That is OK.

Much blood means the heart needs to work hard (i.e. a lot of pumping) and that produces a lot of heat. (Ancient Wisdom just called it Yang).

Then logically there is need to have coolant (73% water in the brain) to ensure balancing or reaching optimal equilibrium.

If the water content of the brain is very much reduced, ie. Little or no coolant, what happens? (Just simple logical question)

Similarly just using these two variables : Water / fluids and Blood, there are 4 scenarios that cause in-equilibrium. Too much water, not enough water, too much blood, not enough blood.

What about the quality of Water and Blood? Water too slurry, sticky, or Blood too thin, or blood stasis?

If in-equilibrium or imbalance, do you think it will affect the functionalities of the brain? Do you think there is connection between such imbalances with stroke, Parkinson, dementia?

I am just presenting some logical flow.

How do you do manage the balancing in order not to get stroke, Parkinson or dementia?

You need water management of your body. Ya? How?

You need blood management of your body, Ya? How?

What are the inputs to Water and Blood, and how the Body Process these inputs in order to get quality water and blood?

So your body processing is like a factory. How do you know the factory is working OK?

In the video training : “Qi (its mystery unfolded), 5-Essential Human Life Variables”, the 5-Essential Human Life Variables are

  1. Water / Fluid :2 Blood : 3  Qi :4  Essence :5 Consciousness

For the 1 and 2, you are OK with the concepts, but not 3,4,5.

But 3000 years old Ancient Wisdom tells us all these 5 variables need to be managed to achieve balancing for better well being, not to get sick.

Keep driving the car so that it won’t stop?

I observe several WhatsApp groups of retiree, or near retiree, they actively share & take part in quizzes, puzzles, sharing videos after videos regarding innovation.

They hold an underlying belief that if they actively use their brains, they wouldn’t get dementia, stroke or Parkinson.

What do you think?

Would you do the same with such belief system?

What theory is that you are using?

You may observe many people use a lot of brain-work, they get dementia, stroke or Parkinson.

You may also observe that many people Do Not use brain-work, they get dementia, stroke or Parkinson!
