The Traditional Chinese Medicine’s theory believes that a kind of energy field in the Cosmos exists between the planets, which has impacted the Earth and human.
All the phenomenon of natural and human survival has been impacted in billions years by it,like as sun rises up from east and go down to west, every changing four seasons,ocean current moving from east to west .Even the human body has been impacted too. As we live on the earth, every thing is being impacted including the earth itself.
The earth goes around the Sun, it has a closest and furthest point around the sun in the track. That point is called the Golden Ratio Point, which appears in our life very often, as people gauge to another people’s body shape, usually our vision through by the Golden ratio that measures the proportion of which the distance is 0.618 from the navel center to head and to feet is the body considered perfect.
If compare both of the Golden Ratio, as the people and the cosmos, that the proportion is some 0.618 like a copy.
The TCM believes that our body inside has the Chi, which is vital energy.It rises up from left side and goes down to right side in the body, which establishes a circular track ,which has some way matched the rule of the sun and earth.
Acupuncture is the insertion through a point to activate the Chi for treatment. After that, the Chi and Meridians and the power field are activated.
As body gets a sick, the field becomes too weak, slow,even blocked or stuck. Acupuncture is used to stimulate the special acupoints to restart the field and make it work normal again, those points are of the Golden Ratio of the meridian bring a strong Chi to adjust the sick field for treatment.
So the cure from acupuncture is not from needles, but it is from the cosmos energy field.
How do traditional Chinese medicines treat diseases?
Diseases of Chinese medicine are divided into YIN and YANG, cold vs. hot, the outside environment vs. the inside environment, and deficiencies vs. excess. For example with traditional Chinese medicine, when the body is too hot, you would treat the problem using cold herbs, and when the body is yang, you would use yin herbs to balance the body out.
Meridians are the channels or pathways through which Chi is constantly flowing and circulating throughout the body. There are 12 regular meridians and 8 extra or “curious” meridians. The 12 main meridians correspond to 12 major functions or “organs” of the body (such as liver, kidney, heart).
The Chinese concept of organs corresponds only loosely to the Western concept. TCM associates specific functions, symptoms, emotions, colors, and tastes with each organ, whereas the Western view is limited primarily to function.
Chi must flow in the correct quantity and quality through the meridians and organs for health to be maintained. Acupuncture, the insertion of thin, solid metal needles, is performed on 1 or more of the 361 acupuncture points distributed along the meridians in order to regulate and promote the proper flow of Chi. Other techniques may be used to stimulate acupuncture points, such as moxibustion, in which the herb “moxa” (Artemesia vulgaris) is used to warm the acupuncture point either above or on the skin. Applied pressure (acupressure), lasers, and magnets also may be used to stimulate acupuncture points.
Jing, usually translated as “essence,” is the substance that is the underpinning of all organic life. Qi is responsible for the ongoing day-to-day movements and function of the body, whereas Jing can be considered an individual’s constitutional makeup. According to TCM, Jing is stored in the kidneys.
According to Chinese Medicine, Chi is vital energy, it involves two forms called innate and acquired of the Chi. It is an important life material which includes a variety of hormones, and is also found in your immune system. The Chi’s strength comes from your parents and it complements with the intestinal absorption of the spleen and stomach.
Shen is considered to be the psyche or spirit of the individual. Shen is the vitality behind Jing and Qi in the human body. The three elements together—Qi, Jing, and Shen—are referred to collectively in TCM as the “Three Treasures” and are believed to be the essential components of life.
According to TCM, the major activity of the blood is to circulate through the body, nourishing and moistening the various organs and tissues. Disharmonies of the blood may manifest as “deficient” blood or “congealed” blood. If deficient blood exists and affects the entire body, the patient may present with dry skin, dizziness, and a dull complexion. Congealed blood may manifest as sharp, stabbing pains accompanied by tumors, cysts, or swelling of the organs (i.e., the liver).The key organs associated with blood are the heart, liver, and spleen.
Fluids are bodily liquids other than blood and include saliva, sweat, urine, tears, and semen. Fluids act to moisten both the exterior (skin and hair) and the internal organs. Disharmonies of fluids may result in dryness and excess heat. The key organs involved in the formation, distribution, and excretion of fluids are the lungs, spleen, and kidneys.
Yin & Yang
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) theory, life of human beings consists of Yin and Yang substances: the mind or functions belongs to Yang, the body belongs to Yin; Fu belongs to Yang, Zang belongs to Yin; Qi belongs to Yang, Blood belongs to Yin; Heat belongs to Yang, Cold belongs to Yin; Fire belongs to Yang, Water belongs to Yin; the outside belongs to Yang, the inside belongs to Yin; the up body belongs to Yang, the lower body belongs to Yin; the front of body belongs to Yang, the back of body belongs to Yin……
It is the interaction between Yin and Yang creates the life. According to TCM theory, the balance between Yin and Yang after their interaction means health; the imbalance of them means subhealth, if serious degree, the diseases appear, if Yang leaves Yin, life is over.
So in ancient China, people focus on keeping the balance of Yin and Yang, but people will ask how can keep the balance of Yin and Yang? Before we talk this question, we should tell you how can make the imbalance between Yin and Yang.
According to TCM, babies’ Yin and Yang are in balance condition, they not know what is worry, what is happy, all day they live in their naive world, as they grow up, there are three facts influencing them:
The first is the seven human emotions (i.e. joy, anger, sorrow, fear, love, hate and desire), if people hurt by the seven emotions, we call NeiShangQiQing (internal damage by the excessive seven emotions) in Etiology of TCM.
In western medicine theory, there is no description about the seven emotions and the diseases, on the contrary, they put most excessive emotions people into madhouse, but the mind is what TCM studies and uses. Western medicine mainly focuses on external factors such as bacteria, virus, cigarettes etc.
The second is Six Excessive Atmospheric Factors (i.e. Wind, Cold, Heat, Damp, Dryness, Fire), if people hurt by them, we call WaiGanLiuYin (external damage by the excessive atmospheric factors), in Etiology of TCM.
In western medicine theory, there are few correct descriptions about the weather and the diseases, even the CO2 Greenhouse Effect is told to be a lie by some conspiratorial scientists, I got this information from the Media report about COPENHAGEN Climate Conference 2009, but the weather is what TCM studies and uses.
The third is Food, Work and Leisure. If eating and drinking without temperance, immoderate work and leisure, the balance of Yin and yang also will be damaged.
During the experience of the life, people’s Yin and Yang become imbalance under the influence of above conditions, disorders of body functions till various diseases appear. On basis of individual differences, some people appear this kind of disease, some people appear that kind of diseases.
To keep or recover the balance of Yin and Yang, people should notice below:
1. To make your mind calm, peaceful and broad (Mind is Power Source);
2. To practise excercise which belongs to you (Excercise is Power Channel);
3. To keep Nutritional management (Foods and Drinks is Power Support);
4. To take correct medicine treatment (Medicine is Power Supplement)
What is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping is an ancient Chinese method of causing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction. This draws up the underlying tissues. When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place.
Cupping therapy has been further developed as a means to open the ‘Meridians’ of the body. Meridians are the conduits in the body through which energy flows to every part of the body and through every organ and tissue. There are five meridians on the back that, when opened, allow invigorating energy to travel the whole length of the body. It has been found that cupping is probably the best way of opening those meridians.
Cupping has also been found to affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, help activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, activate the skin, clear stretch marks and improve varicose veins. Cupping is the best deep tissue massage available. Cupping, the technique, is very useful and very safe and can be easily learned and incorporated into your family health practices.
Now plastic cups based on the traditional cups by applying the traditional cupping therapy together with the magnetic therapy. The new cups have done away with the traditional firing. This has made the application of the cups more easily and safely. It has a good penetrating effect and a big drawing strength. It has not only improved efficacy but also simplified the procedures of cupping therapy.
The improved plastic cups for ancient Chinese cupping therapy are now available for supply. They are easier to be handled and safer to be used for self-treatment at home. In China, the new cups are very popular for family cupping treatment.
