During my 2-day Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic (YEIC ancient wisdom) training, I asked the participants : “Observe carefully, what are the similarities in behaviors between autistic children and some old people with health problems?” With such focused question, after a while, participants pointed out the following similarities. They have 5-senses deficiencies, learning difficulties, hands and limbs not flexible, slow and not alert, fixed behaviors, repeated behaviors, stubborn, throw tantrum, temperamental ….. The parents with autistic children suddenly brightened their eyes, and began to wonder : “Why similar behavioral pattern problems having different therapies? Why I have to spend so much time, energy and money on Occupational Therapy, Sensory Integration, Speech Therapy, for my autistic child, whereas the older people with similar behavioral problems do not need to? Is there really a coherent theory to explain phenomena and with which to execute therapy?” This is indeed the current challenges of 200 years old Western Medicine, which does not have an integrated and holistic theoretical framework governing life and human body system, but so many fragmented and piecemeal theories and application, with no linkages with each other. 3000 years ago, what does YEIC theory says? “Kidneys system is Prenatal foundation.” (same as today concept like genes, DNA). And “Kidneys Store these Essence” (The essence of life) These notions or theories explain the behavioral patterns of autistic children and unhealthy older people. “Kidneys system is Prenatal foundation.” “Kidneys Store these Essence”, upon birth, healthy baby inherits the genes and DNA from healthy parents, called Essence “精”. When subsequent life span with good Life Cultivation practice, one can live till designed life span of 120 years old. Most autistic children do not have such quality Essence, which in our previous discussion, called “Prenatal deficiency”. Hence Kidneys-Qi is deficient. Kidney Qi governs one’s intelligence (learning ability). Weak Kidney Qi further weaken other organs like Liver (with tantrum, as Liver Stores Anger), etc etc. For a normal health person, over time, when he excessively uses his energy, emotions, activities, .. the Kidney Essence gets depleted very fast. And these result in many people even before older age, have learning difficulties, forgetfulness, bones weakened (all these are attribute of Kidneys Qi or energy), which later affect other organs like Liver ( with anger and stubbornness, etc.) With such a theory in hand, we can then focus our attention to do healing to the Kidney Qi / Essense to both autistic children and older people. Isn’t it important to have a logical and compelling Theory to act upon to get meaningful and effective application in therapy and treatment? If we operate on the wrong theory e.g. “Anything heavier than air cannot fly” then we can never able to invent and build airplane. So Lady and Gentleman, what theory do you use to operate on to manage your health, whether it is autism, cancers, Parkinson?
This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the video training courses.

January this year (2018) I conducted 2-day training on “Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic” to Sibu Parkinson Society. One of the participants invited me to make a write up proposal to introduce YEIC to the next year Work Parkinson Conference in Japan.
I was thinking how to introduce ancient Chinese wisdom to a group of people who are mostly deeply influenced by the Western Education and Western Medicine concepts?
I started a title *[Vital paradigm shift for people living with Parkinson’s]* .
I borrow words from Albert Einstein : “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
1817年，Dr James Parkinson identified the illness which later called “Parkinson disease”. Till today there is still no cure to it.
People living with Parkinson have the thinking pattern, just like other patients with difficult diseases, that there is need to constantly search for better medicine and therapy. Some attend conference to seek mutual support. This thinking pattern has existed 200 years since 1817 and still continuing.
I feel that such thinking pattern – in search for better medicine or waiting for better medicine, in itself is a problem.
In the old days, ancient sages make distinction between medical treatment and the Tao of Living, or Life Cultivation.
They place the Tao of Living or Life Cultivation more important than medical treatment. Life Cultivation concerns the whole being, the LIFE itself, not just the health issue like Parkinson. And Life is certainly full of potentialities, which are not fully manifested.
Life Cultivation 养生 is caring for life, 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year. What you do or don’t do? What you eat? Sleeping habits? How you exercise? What thoughts, what emotions, what attitudes towards life, what types of interaction with people, how you care yourself and others and how others love you, ….
Hence I introduce to the World Parkinson Conference organizer regarding the importance of Paradigm Shift, to shift from 200 years old pattern taking this medicine, that medicine, searching for better medicine, doing this therapy and that exercises, taking this nutritious foods, avoid certain foods, today this activities, tomorrow that activities, .. numerous routines, all in fragmented manners, non-aligned.
.. Shift to a holistic and aligned approach : diets intake to ensure proper key organs functionalities, 五脏六腑的功能，qi-exercises to ensure proper qi-movement for better key organs functionalities, thinking, emotions, attitudes towards life to ensure raising to higher consciousness of key organs, as each organ holds different aspect of Consciousness, …
This is a totally integrated healing system.
And that is also the key message from Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classics. And when the 5 key organs functionalities are in good balance, illnesses healed.
Albert Einstein said ：“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the online training. “Organs functionalities 五脏六腑功能”，”Organs Consciousness 五神”, “Medical Treatment and Life Cultivation 医道相通”，“life cultivation 养生”， “Words in Chinese are texts from the book YEIC, 3000 years ago.”
Today we continue the discussion on “Nervous System”.
Western Medicine considers diseases like Parkinson, Autism, Alzheimer, Depression, … are due to Nervous System problems.
Hence their attention is focused on “Nervous System”.
When they consider certain illness is due to heart and blood circulation problem, they shift their attention on such.
Let’s discuss based on logic.
Heart, blood circulation problem surely needs supply of oxygen as per the lungs-functionalities. Agreed?
Surely they also need the liver to carry out its detox function, to ensure flesh supply of blood to the heart and for blood circulation. Agree?
Surely they require good digestive functions of the spleen and stomach so as to ensure transformed foods into nutrients can be supplied to the heart and blood circulation. Agree?
Surely they require good metabolism from the kidneys to ensure no toxin accumulation in the heart and blood. Agree?
From the above logics, all key organs functionalities are to be in good order so that heart and blood circulation are in good order too.
Likewise we can extend the same logics to the “nervous system”, which requires good organs functionalities.
Isn’t it strange that there is different medical treatments for Parkinson, Autism, Alzheimer, Depression, …although they all arise from “nervous system” problems!
We are no medical doctors, specialists, but we can follow the above logics, why can’t the western medical trained doctors cannot see such logics?
Western Medicine considers ancient YEIC has no logics, in its holistic approach, but it is precisely this logic that take good care of the key organs functionalities, good health ensured. 五脏六腑的基本功能!
Do you feel you need simple logics to govern your life or complicated and entangled theories?
This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the video training courses. “Key organs functionslities 五脏六腑功能”，。。。 。。。 “Words in Chinese are texts from the book YEIC, 3000 years ago.”
Nervous System problem is often quoted by Western Medicine as the cause to a variety of diseases, like Parkinson’s, Autism, Alzheimer’s.
As per Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic (YEIC), there is no such concept nor term called “Nervous System”.
But 3000 years ago, ancient sages place great importance to “Consciousness” “Intelligence” “EQ”, which are hallmark of human being as compared with animals.
These Intangible system was also recognized as closely related to the tangible system like respiratory system, digestive system, excretion system, metabolism of the body.
For example, “Anger is associated with the function of Liver”, “怒伤肝”，Thinking power is associated with the function of Spleen “脾主思”，Will Power is associated with the function of Kidneys “肾藏志”，Joy and happiness are associated with the function of heart “心❤主喜”.
During my two day YEIC training class, I ask students : “Do you prefer to have nervous system or higher Consciousness system?”
Obviously they choose the later. After all animal also have nervous system.
Logics tell us that if we possess high Consciousness, surely it implies the nervous system is intact.
The the focus should be placed on manifesting the higher human Consciousness, involving intelligence, EQ and understand their relationship with the tangible body functionalities system, like blood circulation, breathing etc.
On these matter, ancient sages give us a lot of knowledge and information and therapies.
This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the video training courses. “Anger affect Liver, 怒伤肝”，”Spleen has thinking functionalities 脾主思”，”Will Power is associated with Kidneys function 肾藏志”，”Joy and Happiness are felt in the Heart 心❤主喜”，。。。 。。。
“Words in Chinese are texts from the book YEIC, 3000 years ago.”
It is common we cry with tears when we feel sad, especially for ladies.
Sometimes tears with running nose.
How do we explain physiologically the happening, tears and running nose?
Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic (YEIC) says : “Heart manifests in Happiness”, likewise, heart also manifests sadness.
Hence in extreme happiness and sadness, the heart is “moved”, causing imbalance. And extra energy is necessary to restore balance. Such energy, the old sages called “Qi-Blood”.
YEIC also says “Liver is responsible for distribution of Qi and Blood”. Then, in the above case, the Qi-Blood must be directed to the heart.
As the Liver is doing extra work to deliver the Qi-blood, energy, Liver also needs extra energy (qi-blood), which is drawn from the Kidneys, the reservoirs of energy, This reservoir is like Retirement Fund, meant to be used at old age. YEIC says, “Kidneys stores Essence”.
Kidneys are represented by Water as per 5-element theory. And indeed Kidneys are in charge of body fluids, including urine.
YEIC says, the fluid part of the Liver is tears. And Kidneys direct the fluids to the Liver.
YEIC also says “Liver manifests in Eyes”. Then on one hand, Liver delivers Qi-Blood to the heart, Kidneys supply fluid (a form of energy or fuel) to the Liver too. The by-product of the above Liver operation is Tears.
To supply Qi-blood, obviously we need Qi to move the blood. This requires the working function of Lungs, taking in air through breathing. YEIC says : Lungs manifests in running nose fluid. And Lungs manifest at nose. Then we have running nose.
With excessive discharge of tears and running nose fluids, the digestion is affected. No appetite for foods, then lack of foods as nutrients to make fresh Qi-Blood.
That is why ancients sages consider the importance of emotions affecting health.
In fact, any time, whatever activities, emotional, mental, or manual work, energy or Qi-blood is consumed. If excessive, health imbalance is caused, as all 5 key organs are affected.
In the extreme case of sadness with non stop crying, the kidney-essence maybe excessively consumed. And the person may go blind, or all sorts of illnesses.
If you ask Western doctors about sadness, tears and running nose, how would they explain?
Likely they say : “No big deal, it is natural.” or “there are tears glands, tears are secretion, ..” and they do not have other theories to explain further.
Isn’t it typical that Western Medicine cannot explain fully many illnesses, but vaguely say nervous system in the case of Parkinson or dementia. But they offer you medicines and surgical procedures. Funny, ya?
Does it mean that one should not have emotions, no crying is better?
If a child never has any emotions, no sadness, no anger, no fear …etc
Then it reflects the organs functionalities are out of balance. All are needed in moderation, the key philosophy of YEIC.
Actually children crying does not necessarily indicate sadness, but activating the functions of the lungs and hearts etc. They cry at one moment, and laugh and play when you shift their attention.
Not long ago, I had a coaching . counselling case. She has a lot of sad stories, and she said she had run out of tears. During coaching, she only used her mind to communicate with me, no emotions.
One day, something big and negative triggers her emotions deeply. She seems like totally collapsed and called me urgently. When I met up with her, in her emotional stage, she was able to release her emotions and her breathing became calmer and we had a more effective coaching session.
Sadness is energy. Emotion is energy. Energy can be transformed.
Now do you appreciate more and more the ancients wisdom, 3000 years ago they gave us principles and theories to explain and understand many phenomena and how to strengthen the organs functionalities, which is like the immune system.
