Skin, Lung, and Heart

The human body is wise, like a small cosmic world, while the universe is a big cosmic world. In this small cosmic world, everything is connected as a whole from the Traditional Chinese Medicine’s(TCM) point of view.

TCM thinks that the human skin is closely related to human Qi and Blood circulations systems.

For example, between the human skin and lung:

“…When people are sad, their sadness depresses lung Qi, also dissipates Yin energy, and shows symptoms such as colds and coughs. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the lung is connected with the skin and hair; people with poor lungs have a deficiency of lung Qi and lack protection from the Qi of the skin. Not only does the skin lose its brilliance, but it is also particularly sensitive to allergies. Skin problems reflect lung problems, and lung problems are manifested on the skin. Skin allergies can be treated through the lungs, and massaging the skin can also treat lung problems…”

Between the human skin and heart:

“…Sweat is the liquid discharged from the skin after body fluid is vaporized by the transpiration of Yang Qi. The secretion and excretion of sweat also depend on the opening and closing effect of Qi on the body. When the skin sweat holes are open, sweat is excreted; when the sweat holes are closed, there is no sweat. Because sweat is transformed by body fluid, blood and body fluid come from the same source, so there is a saying that “sweat and blood have the same origin”.

      Sweat can reflect good or bad health, and it is wise to be vigilant when sweating is abnormal. Since sweat and blood are closely related in physiology, they also influence each other pathologically. As far as the relationship between sweat and blood is concerned, excessive sweating can drain blood and damage fluid. On the contrary, if the body fluid is weak and blood is insufficient, the source of sweat is insufficient. Excessive sweating consumes the Qi and Blood of the heart, so profuse sweating can also hurt people’s Yang Qi. On the contrary, when the heart’s blood is insufficient, it can also cause pathological sweating, spontaneous sweating, or night sweats…”

Does our #MotherEarth have her skin, lung, and heart? If she is having a fever on her skin, what happened to her body?


The Ancestor of Medicine Is Music

Beautiful music can cultivate people’s sentiments, purify people’s hearts, and give people wonderful enjoyment. But, do you know music might originally be created for healing?

For the Chinese word “药”-medicine, if we look into its ancient way of spelling, it is “藥”. Unscramble this word “藥”, it contains two simple words: “草”-grass at the top, and “乐” music/happiness at the bottom. It tells the interesting invention of the characters of medicine“药” in Chinese: Medicines are grasses grown from music. That’s a vivid description of Chinese herbal medicines.

People’s ability to accept sound starts when a baby is in its mother’s belly. And ears are the first to “open up” of the five senses. An unborn baby can hear its mother’s heartbeat, breathing and speaking voice. This is part of the reason for “fetus education” – letting pregnant moms listen to music.

The book “Water Knows the Answer” tells the amazing experiment results of making water crystallize while listening to music:

“The crystallization of the water listening to Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony is as beautiful and neat as this song; listening to Mozart’s Symphony No. 40, it shows a gorgeous beauty. Listening to Chopin’s “Farewell”, its exquisite beauty is simply amazing.”

On the contrary, “When the water listens to heavy metal music full of anger and resistance, the shape of the crystals is messy and broken. When listening to messy rock music, it crystallizes into cancer cells, ugly and disgusting. ”

Water occupies more than half of the human body. When it resonates with happy, relaxed, and calming music, it becomes the best antidote to human illnesses too. The happiness that classical music brings to people does not lie in whether it expresses sadness or joy but comes from people’s kind and righteous thoughts. It inspires knowledge that promotes human nature; achieves mentality, and a good body condition.

Diseases: Prevent or Control❓

TCM, Traditional Chinese Medicine, studies invisible universe energy. WM, western medicine, is a substantive science that studies tangible confrontation.

TCM focuses on prevention; WM focuses on control.

TCM’s source of wisdom relies on treating human physical & mental systems as a whole. It thinks: internal diseases are reflected outside; partial illness reveals illness of the whole, which in turn affects the whole. WM reveals the results, following the laws of treatments of illnesses that can be seen and measured.

TCM thinks human life is all about energy.

A sample: the vegetative, with nervous system rotten and muscle atrophied, is still alive but not dead: he can digest and absorb with life systems runs normally if we “feed” him. In TCM’s point of view, the invisible energy system, Qi and spirit, gets energy from the universe and maintains his life.

What eyes can see is the result. X-rays & the microscope are extensions of the naked eye. Diseases are hardly healed by chasing blood pressure, blood sugar, uric acid, and other measurement data.

TCM diagnoses & treats diseases with the #wisdom of a sage to root causes. The ancients studied the energy movement of invisible essentials; knew how #energy moves, why people got diseases. 👀🧐📖⚖️☕
