Health Advice by a TCM Doctor (1)

Body and Mind:

  • Chaos in physical system is the cause for most illnesses, while the physical chaos is caused by mental turmoil.

  • The key to nourish our energy is to pacify our mind. If our mind is stirred, it will blow the wind in our heart; the strong wind will then fuel the liver Fire, and a powerful Fire will then dry up kidney Water which is the reservoir of vitality.

  • Most people try to keep healthy by nourishing their body; a smart guy will try to keep healthy by nourishing his qi; a truly wise man will try to keep healthy by nourishing his mind. (下士养身,中士养气,上士养心。)

  • The real scientific attitudes is to fully acknowledge the relationship between the causes and the consequences. (真正的科学是什麽?就是因缘果报。不信因果,就不是真正的科学。)

  • If we want to live longer, we should know how to rehabilitate from our illness; If we want to know how to rehabilitate from our illness, we should know how to utilize our qi; If we want to know how to utilize our qi, we should know what our unique nature is; If we want to know what our unique nature is, we should know who we really are beyond our temporary physical shelter. (凡人欲求长寿,应先除病。欲求除病,当明用气。欲明用气,当先养性。养性之法,当先调心。 )
