Yesterday I spent 2 hours with someone who is anxious & worried about her recent conditions.
She said her mind goes blank in the middle of conversation with people. She is particularly anxious having discussion with her boss, who recently gives her more assignments with the view to promote her soon.
Her problem with frozen thought can also happen when having conversation with friends.
I spent time to find out is there any emotional & psychological issue, presently, past since childhood, and any such imaginary fear projected into the future.
There is no significant emotional & psycholigical issue.
Then I make inquiry into her physiological conditions, her lifestyle, diets, habits, socializing.
She has several negative physiological conditions : uncontrolled sweating since young, hands & legs often cold, her period flow is little, frequent urination, hair drop, loose stool.
As per ancient wisdom life cultivation 养生, her diet is creating above mentioned problems. Her habit & lifestyle are causing much Yin Yang imbalance in her body.
I explained to her what causes her present mind blank in the middle of conversation problem, linking all the above mentioned physioligical condition, diets, habit & lifestyle.
Now she has better understanding of her condititions, more importantly she does not need to worry whether she has mental breakdown issue or psychological issue.
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.
Yesterday I have a discussion with a mother, who has a child of autism.
Throughout the conversation she holds the Belief that she can only do her best, there is no way the child can be normal and healthy again.
Similarly I observe there are many people with sickness like diabetes, Parkinson, high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s Disease, cancers, depression, . ,hold the Belief that their sickness can never be cured completely, and they must take life long medication to control the sickness and suffer the side effects.
Where does such strong Belief come from? It is like a strong religious Belief.
Such Belief comes from Western Science, Western Medicine Theory, Western Nutrition Theory,
Our mind is brainwashed since young throughout our education, formal & informal.
It is like a religious Belief, except this religion does not show you the way to heaven, only halfway to heaven.
What if there is another theory that shows you the way to heaven, i.e. to full recovery from sickness, to be free from autism, to be fully healthy?
Ancient Wisdom offers such theory.
Ancient Wisdom, Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, shows you the Way, the Dao.
“Is there guarantee my sickness or autism can be completely cured?”
Well, who can guarantee you that you can go to heaven if you follow the religion?
Surely it depends on your faith and your sincere & diligent practice daily.
Ancient wisdom just shows you there is a way, whereas Western Medicine say no way.
Which theory you want to choose to practice now?
You are most welcome to learn about ancient wisdom in the following video courses.
Lately there were a few cases referred by two Western Medicine doctors to me, involving teenage / adult children.
Common factors among these cases are enormous & uncontrolled anger, violence against the parents & family members, some with threats to inflict physical injury to parents.
Recent triggering events can be jilted by girlfriend, failed the college exam, taking drugs, not getting the high pocket money demanded, …
The parents feel so sad and guilty about their poor parenting.
In those cases the parents came to see me and shared with me the background stories, I did the psychological & physiological analysis on their adult child and assured the parents they had done the best they could on parenting and need not get locked in their guilt feeling.
I share the following examples.
The child since young had problems to stay focused. Any interest or hobby, activity is very short live.
Hence he could not succeed anything : whether school work, sports, games or hobbies.
This can create a built up frustration and anger in him over years. The above is analysis from psychological and personality angles.
As per 3000 years ancient wisdom, Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, there is matching physiological image to the above psychology & personality.
Spleen consciousness is in Thinking & Focusing. 脾主思。 Kidneys consciousness is in Will Power. 肾藏志。
Hence since young, the child had deficiencies in Spleen & Kidneys Functionalities.
In one of the cases, the child also has achievement orientation, and got the recognition from his friends on some of his expressed capability. The friends influenced him on gambling, taking drugs, with many exciting night activities without sleep.
Ancient wisdom says, Liver stores Ethereal Soul, 肝藏魂。
Ethereal Soul has attributes like creativity and strategies. Now he can express such attributes in gambling, drugs and illegal activities.
Ancient wisdom says, Liver stores Anger, 肝主怒。
His past years of frustration & anger due to him not able to focus and not able to achieve much, coupled with not enough sleep at nights, his Liver functionalities are severely out of balance.
His anger & violence can be easily triggered by anything not going his way, e.g. jilted by girl friend, lost money in gambling, not able to get from parents his high demand on pocket money….
Why inadequate sleep can affect liver function, and affect behaviors? Please refer to video training on Meridians.
Ideally if the parents know the psychology & personalities and the matching corresponding organs functionalities, there are many therapies (Including Food Therapy) the parents can do when the child is still young.
This article illustrates the importance of the knowledge in the ancient wisdom, Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, a holistic model integrating Psychology, Personality and Physiology.
This discussion involves a few key concepts which are explained in details in the video training.” ” Liver stores Ethereal Soul, 肝藏魂 ” “Organs Functionalities 五脏六腑”， ，”Food Therapy” 食疗， 饮食学说。 Meridians, Qi exercise 经络，气的运动。 Spleen consciousness is in Thinking & Focusing. 脾主思。 Kidneys consciousness is in Will Power. 肾藏志。
(This is a discussion with a forum group, i.e. Parents with children of Autism).
I wish to share with you some explanation on your child eats stool problem.
I explain from the theory of the 3000 years ancient wisdom, which can explain many phenomena that Western Medicine cannot explain.
I have been sharing my research for a profound solution to autism as per theory of the Ancient Wisdom, but few people want to listen, as most people belief system is locked in the Western Education we received.
Western education and theory about our body system, our health are inadequate and incomplete as compared with Ancient Wisdom.
Even though many people could not come out from their embedded belief system, and disregard the message from the ancient wisdom, I will continue to share.
I take patience to explain to you, even though later you still disbelieve.
Why the child eats stool?
First we go back to basic.
When we want to eat something, a few pre-conditions exist.
1. Body needs for foods & drink 2. Smell, Taste, Flavor form the attributes of foods & drink.
Someone always goes for spicy foods excessively, hot, chilly, pungent, till such habit damages his health.
As per the theory of Ancient Wisdom, different organs have different needs for different taste, flavour, smell of foods.
In this case, it is the Lungs that prefer pungent, spicy foods.
But there must be a balance, a person who never takes pungent foods, his lungs do not develop well.
Fortunately and unknowingly we do take pungent foods like onions, garlic. Hence our lungs get nourished.
Another person who takes excessive pungent foods, his lungs get damaged, leading to all sort of lungs related diseases.
Each of the key critical organs, Heart, Lungs, Kidneys, Liver, Heart, has its preference for certain flavour & smell.
A healthy person will have a good combination of all flavours. Either he has the knowledge of the ancient wisdom on combination of foods-flavour, or the healthy body will subconsciously direct the person to avoid certain foods.
Back to the early example, the person who eats pungent foods excessively, will not enjoy pungent foods when his lungs problems are solved.
In the case of Eating Stool, different stool has different mixed flavour & smell, in all cases, it shows some or almost all the major organs functionalities are out of balance.
A child eats stool is not educational issue, but physiological problem.
When the child organs functionalities are balanced, naturally, he will not eat stool anymore.
Do you know that some child likes eating soil from flower pot?
Now you realize how much the organs functionalities are out of balance for drug addicts!
In this limited space, I can only explain briefly the concept as above.
If you are deeply curious, wanting to find solution for you child, you can invest in a few hours of time to go through the following video training, on the theory, practice and healing application.
If you prefer to remain in your current belief system, not taking yourself out of the thinking box to accept the Ancient Wisdom, that is alright, I will go on to introduce to other people.
Cheers and God Bless.
This discussion involves a few key concepts which are explained in details in the video training.”5 Flavor for 5 Organs, 五味对应五脏 “， “Organs Functionalities 五脏六腑”， ，”Food Therapy” 食疗， 饮食学说。 Meridians, Qi exercise 经络，气的运动。
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.
