《内经 * 素问 * 上古天真论篇第一》

 

“上古之人,其知道者,法于阴阳,和于术数,食饮有节,起居有常,不妄作劳,故能形与神俱,而尽终其天年,度百岁乃去。“ 

 … 天人相应、形神合一。顺应自然界阴阳的变化节律,使用适宜的养身方法,坚持合理的饮食方式、起居规律,不过度劳心、劳力、房劳,从而达到精神与形体相互协调,健康无病,长命百岁正气存内,邪不可干,阴平阳秘,精神乃治,健康长寿)。

 

“虚邪贼风,避之有时,恬淡虚无,真气从之,精神内守,病安从来。”            

… 外避虚邪(避邪气干扰),内养神气(内心平静),真气调和(正气不虚),   精神充足不外散, 病邪就无从入侵人体.  

《内经 * 素问 * 举痛论第三十九》

 

百病生于气: “怒则气上,喜则气缓,悲则气消, 恐则气下,寒则气收,炅则气泄,惊则气乱,劳则气耗,思则气结“ 

… 七情内伤,气机紊乱;五劳六极,耗竭正气。

​Building Healthy Qi, Live New Normal With More Confidence

... some basic concepts in Chinese Medicine: 

 

Qi (气): vital energy               Healthy Qi (正气): defensive-healing energy

  • Defensive Qi (卫气): similar to immune system

  • ​Healing energy: body-organs function 

 

When healthy energy is strong, pathogens can not invade body easily (正气存内, 邪不可干). 

  Yin Yang Harmony: root of human health (阴平阳秘, 精神乃治)

  - Yin & Yang: two opposite objects or two opposite aspects in one object

 

Adopting following best practices, strengthening healthy Qi

... according to "Nei Jing", a classic text in Chinese Medicine

[A]    Follow nature’s law.      … Yin & Yang, four seasons, etc. 

                                                            e.g. sleep at night, be active during the day.  

                                                                        

[B]    Keep calm emotion.       … mind-body connection. 

           Avoid unbalanced emotions (over – worry / thinking / angry / joy / fright / sad-grief / fear)

 

[C]    Consume a proper diet.    … balance nutrients / tastes

                                                            … avoid over / under eating; avoid cold / raw 

 

[D]    Exercises regularly in moderation. 

 

[E]    Keep a good sleep routine   … avoid work / play overnight

 

[F]    Balance work & rest.              … avoid over work / stationary 

Additional tips:

    • Sunbathing upper back; blow dry wet hair (esp. in cold climate). 

  3. Moxa acupuncture point ST-36 (足三里) regularly helps to boost immune system, increase healing power, and promote longevity.
