(NaturalNews) Following are three powerful practices from ancient oriental medicine that will serve your health and well-being.
1. THE HUMAN BODY POSSESSES A PROFOUND AND POWERFUL REGENERATIVE CHEMISTRY. PRESUME THAT POWER UNDER ALL CONDITIONS
Time and time again serious diseases are suddenly and irrevocably reversed. These extraordinary healings demonstrate the immense power of the body's ability to rejuvenate itself. The traditional medical systems of China, India and Tibet are all based on the observation that the body will heal itself when it is brought back into balance. We should, therefore do whatever is practically necessary to bring the body back into healing balance, but we should never meditate on the disease. We should presume and meditate on the power of this healing chemistry instead.
One of the common factors that we see in examples of extraordinary healing is the ability to transcend the power and mood of the named disease and to presume instead the body's power to rejuvenate. Visualize this power everyday and read healing stories to inspire and magnify this rejuvenative disposition.
2. CULTIVATE THE BLOOD EVERYDAY
Right cultivation of the blood is key to longevity. Dracula understood this principle. We should boost the body's production of blood, and increase the blood circulation every day. This ensures that there is an abundant supply of blood to feed all the organs and cells of the body. It also ensures that our circulatory system remains open and freely flowing. When blood
production becomes weak, the blood pathways shrink, the possibility of cardio vascular disease increases.
Eat blood building foods everyday like dark greens and brown rice mochi, and breathe deeply during your daily exercise regime. Nature provides us with powerful blood building herbs. Angelica Sinensis, Peony, Rehmannia, Ligusticum, Yellow Dock, promote blood production while herbs such as Hawthorne, Safflower, and Salvia are extremely effective at eliminating areas of blood stagnation that result in imbalance and disease if left unattended.
3. PROTECT THE DEEPER YIN
The Chinese law of aging is as follows: "The yang consumes the yin." The fire of life activity uses up the deep, moist, living essences of the body
. Therefore, we should serve to nourish and refresh this living essence every day. Beyond the age of 45, this practice should be absolute. When the yin levels get low, people overheat, they can't sleep and inflammation increases.
Do not let this yin deficiency persist for too long. Do not allow the moist, cooling, living substratum of the body to dry out because it quickens our decline.
This deep yin is refreshed in deep relaxation, meditation, and deep sleep. Eat lots of cooling cleansing foods like dark greens, avocados and vegetable soups. Nature provides medicines for this too. Herbs like Rehmannia, Lycium, Solomon Seal are loaded with molecules similar to the deep essence of our bodies. Use them on a regular basis.
Anyone can quickly adapt to these three simple practices
to good effect.
Their greatest virtue and power will be shown over time.About the author:
