ANCIENT CHINESE SECRET(S)

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

WHAT IS SO ANCIENT, WHY CHINESE, WHAT IS SO SECRET?

I BOUGHT A BOOK ENTITLED, CHINESE NATURAL CURES, TRADITIONAL
METHODS FOR REMEDIES AND PREVENTIONS. DR. HENRY C. LU RECEIVED
HIS PH D FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, EDMONTON, CANADA. HE
TAUGHT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA AND THE UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY
BETWEEN 1968 AND 1971 AND HAS PRACTICED CHINESE MEDICINE SINCE 1972.

DR. LU NOW TEACHES CHINESE MEDICINE BY CORRESPONDENCE. HIS STUDENTS LIVE IN MANY COUNTRIES, INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES,
CANADA, NEW ZEALAND, SWITZERLAND, MEXICO AND JAPAN.


TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE GOES BACK OVER 3,000 YEARS. IT WAS NOT DEVELOPED BY ANY PARTICULAR INDIVIDUAL; RATHER, IT GREW OUT OF NECESSITY OF MAINTAINING GOOD HEALTH AMONG THE CHINESE PEOPLE. THE ANCIENT CHINESE, LIKE ALL OF US, HAD TO STRUGGLE AGAINST DISEASES IN ORDER TO STAY IN GOOD HEALTH.

IN THE PROCESS, THEY CAME TO SEE THE BENEFITS OF CONSUMING HERBS(KNOWN AS CHINESE HERBOLOGY TODAY), INSERTING NEEDLES IN THE BODY KNOWN AS CHINESE ACUPUNCTURE TODAY), EXERCISING THE BODY(KNOWN AS QI-GONG AND TAI JI), EATING THE RIGHT FOODS(KNOWN AS CHINESE FOOD CURES TODAY) AND MASSAGING THE BODY(KNOWN AS MANIPULATIVE THERAPY TODAY). THIS WAS THEIR SYSTEM OF TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE.

TODAY, TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE IS PRACTICED IN CHINA SIDE BY SIDE WITH MODERN WESTERN MEDICINE. THERE ARE AS MANY HOSPITALS OF TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE AS MODERN HOSPITALS OF WESTERN MEDICINE. FROM THE CHINESE POINT OF VIEW, TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE IS ON EQUAL FOOTING WITH WESTERN MEDICINE; IN FACT, MANY CHINESE VALUE TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE OVER WESTERN MEDICINE.

YOU MAY ASK WHY WE NEED TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE WHEN MODERN, SCIENTIFIC MEDICINE IS AVAILABLE TO ALL OF US. THE REASON IS MANY SKIN, LIVER AND KIDNEY DISEASES, AS WELL AS MANY OTHER DISEASES. (CHINESE NATURAL CURES, PG 10, THE SYSTEM OF TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINES)

I AM FROM THE UNITED STATES, AND CHINESE MEDICINES SOUND MORE HOPEFUL THAN WESTERN MEDICINES! AS DR. LU CONTINUES TO SAY IN HIS BOOK, WHEN A WESTERN DOCTOR TELLS A PATIENT THAT THERE IS NO CURE FOR A CERTAIN DISEASE, IT DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN THAT THE DISEASE IN QUESTION CANNOT BE CURED BY TREATMENTS IN TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE EITHER; IT ONLY MEANS THAT THERE IS NO CURE FOR THE DISEASE BY METHODS OF WESTERN MEDICINE.

CHINESE HERBS, ACUPUNCTURE, AND FOODS CURES ARE LESS DRASTIC, AND CAN BE LONGER-LASTING IN EFFECTS, WHEN USED THE RIGHT WAY, GENERALLY DO NOT PRODUCE SIDE EFFECTS. WESTERN MEDICINES ARE MORE USEFUL FOR FIRST AID SURGERY, WHILE TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE IS MORE USEFUL FOR IN TREATING SKIN AND INTERNAL DISEASES AND CHRONIC UPPER CASES IN PARTICULAR.(PG 10, THE SYSTEM OF TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE)

FIRST, TRUST IN GOD! ONLY GOD HEALS! THERE IS NO DOCTOR ON THIS EARTH OR UNIVERSE THAT CAN HEAL! WHEN YOU GET THE CHANCE USE
ORGANIC PRODUCTS! YOUR BODY WILL LOVE YOU FOR IT! IF THERE IS ANY SECRET TO ANCIENT CHINESE IT WOULD BE.....GOD! NO SECRET THERE!
BUT GOD IS THE SECRET TO AN ETERNITY OF LOVE AND HAPPINESS!
MAY GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOUAND YOUR FAMILY HEALTHY AND SAFE

    I am a huge fan of TCM (traditional chinese medicine) myself. My professor at school and I have spoken about it a lot together, and he recommended a book called, "The Web That Has No Weaver." If you find a copy, definitely grab it because it's great.

    One reason chinese medicine works better than western medicine is because chinese medicine looks at underlying causes of sickness. For example, if you are frequently getting colds, or allergies....perhaps your hypoglycemic index needs improvement, and so forth. Holistic medicine takes the same approach...that's why both types are rapidly growing in popularity.
    Fantastic piece you wrote there, thanks for sharing. =)

    Thanks for sharing that. Very interesting. I have heard of a couple people who had cancer and refused to go through chemotherapy and used the Chinese method instead.
    I totally agree with you, God heals first! He also gives man the knowledge to help heal others but He is the Ultimate Healer!
    God bless you!

    Very interesting! I have an pretty open mind when it comes to holistic medicine. My mom has used acupuncture and it helped her greatly. I am a spiritual person too, and tend to have a lot of faith. Thanks for the info. God bless:-)
