Treating Women’s Health Problems With 423 Meridian Qi Gong – Part 1

Posted on July 1, 2019 in Uncategorized

As I have mentioned in previous articles, one of the benefits of 423 Meridian Qi Gong is the freedom it gives you to tailor the various techniques to suit your individual needs. To help you better understand how to do this we have set out some health issues that many women, whether they are young, middle aged or mature may find they are faced with.  All of these ways of enhancing the health of specific organs are currently used by many of Prof. Liu’s female patients. First, however there are 2 rules that must be observed.

RULE 1. If you are treating a current health problem, increase the number of times you activate the relevant pressure points, and increase the time you spend activating those points.

RULE 2. The more severe the problem, the greater the incremental changes should be.

For all women the two critical points are San Yin Jiao (spleen 6) and Zu San Li (stomach 36).  The other two points Nei Guan (pericardium 6) and He Gu (large intestine 4) will be explored in more detail in the next article.

1. San Yin Jiao (spleen 6)

San yin Jiao is located just above the ankle on the inside of each leg. This point is the intersection of the spleen, liver and kidney meridians, so is of special interest to women as it directly and effectively affects these organs. The liver and kidneys have been found to have a direct effect on hormone metabolism. This point is largely responsible for regulating and maintaining a healthy hormone balance. The importance of this point in womens’

health cannot be over stressed.

Women who frequently suffer from period pain, irregular periods or periods that are too light or too heavy/too long or too short, have gained a significant benefit from massaging Sa Yin Jiao more often and/or for longer than the time suggested for normal health maintenance.  It has also been found to be very useful in preventing and treating problems related to the female reproductive system, and in particular the uterus.

Hormone imbalance is a surprisingly common problem faced by women of all ages as hormones influence a lot of organs.  Women suffering hormone imbalances can suffer Depression, or be withdrawn or temperamental.  Some other more common problems, such as dry skin, loss of skin elasticity, wrinkles, and uneven skin color, low energy levels, and loss of interest in sex, are also found to be associated with hormone imbalance.  Women going through menopause are at more risk of experiencing many of these problems at the same time.

Using the techniques learned in 423 Meridian Qi Gong and increasing the time and/or frequency spent activating San Yin Jiao will greatly improve your body’s ability to prevent or treat these problems. The key is if you are treating a current problem, INCREASE THE NUMBER OF TIMES YOU PERFORM THE TECHNIQUE AND INCREASE THE TIME YOU SPEND ON THE TECHNIQUE. Remember that even if you are on medication you can still safely use any meridian pressure points to improve your health.

Use this important meridian point to prevent health problems or to treat yourself with your own tailor made 423 Meridian Qi Gong program.

2. Zu San Li (stomach 36)

Zu San Li is situated just below the knee on the outside of each leg. This point has a major effect on boosting the immune system. Recent research in China has shown that this is the best point for boosting the immune system in women and men of all ages. More than 90% percent of all people tested showed significant immune system gains in blood tests done immediately after this point was activated. This has direct implications for women’s health.

A deficiency in the immune system can cause MUSCLE PAIN, and pain in the knees, ankles, elbow or shoulders this is often diagnosed as the onset of arthritis or as arthritis.  If the pain moves around or comes and goes, you know the real culprit is an immune system deficiency, not arthritis.  Increase the time and frequency you spend activating Zu San Li. The bigger the problem the more time you need to invest to treat the problem.  You can adjust to suit your needs, as your health starts to improve so you can reduce the time and frequency to suit your improved health situation. 

The importance of a strong immune system to aid in the prevention and treatment of health problems of all kinds regardless of age cannot be ignored. If you have deficiencies in your immune system you can use 423 Meridian Qi Gong to treat them, or you can use 423 Meridian Qi Gong to improve your immune system in order to avoid these problems. Your immune system is a major part of your body’s defense system. UTILIZE IT, MAKE IT WORK FOR YOUR BENEFIT.

Make sure you catch the second half of this report on treating WOMEN’S HEALTH ISSUES so that you can learn where the other 2 pressure points fit in to the 423 Meridian Qi Gong system. It is safe to use this system even if you are on medication or receiving other treatment. The greater the challenge the greater the increase. If you are using the system primarily as a preventive measure,  Congratulations! Prevention is better than cure! All you need to do is to follow the times and frequency as they are demonstrated in the DVD. Assess your own health risks – they ARE personal and unique to you. Only you know what they are, and it’s up to you to adjust your 423 Meridian Qi Gong routine to suit.

Top Ten Health Benefits Of Green Tea And Its Effect On Chronic Disease

Posted on May 29, 2019 in Uncategorized

Having become more health-conscious nowadays, many people have bypassed traditional medicine and have gone the natural route. What this means is that instead of just taking drugs that only treat symptoms, people are utilizing diet, vitamins and minerals, and herbs to treat the body as a whole in hopes to obtain better health. One of the easiest changes that you can make to obtain better health is to switch to drinking green tea instead of coffee or soda. Here are ten health benefits of green tea and their effect on chronic disease. It can:

  • Act as an antioxidant which may help treat and/or prevent cancer — Free radicals in the body have been proven to cause cancer as well as other chronic diseases. It can help your body fight the free radicals because it contains large amounts of antioxidants and other beneficial substances like EGCG, catechins, carotenoids, tocopherols, as well as regular old Vitamin C.
  • Help you to lose weight and may help you live longer — By regulating blood sugar levels, reducing food cravings, helping the body absorb less dietary fat, blocking the conversion of excess calories into fat, and increasing your metabolism, green tea can help your body burn fat and help you lose weight. It is also a great way to re-hydrate the body, maybe even better than water, which is vital as dehydration has been proven to be one of the major causes of chronic diseases.
  • Reduce stress and boost the body’s immune system — Green tea has the ability to calm the body and elevate your awareness which gives your body the ability to reduce its stress level. It does this with the help of a chemical called theanine, which can also help to boos your body’s immune system, according to scientific studies.
  • Protect the body from heart attack and stroke — With an amazing ability (that is still not completely understood by scientists) to speed up the recovery process in heart attack and stroke patients, green tea can also prevent future relapses.
  • Improve heart health and may help to reduce high blood pressure — By reducing the hardening inside of the arteries, green tea has been proven to lower high blood pressure, lower cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood clots which can greatly improve your heart health.
  • Treat and/or prevent diabetes — A known anti-diabetic, green tea can treat and/or prevent diabetes by regulating the blood sugar levels in the body. It does this with the help of theaflavines and EGCG, which also promote glucose metabolism, increase insulin activities, and block glucose absorption.
  • Treat inflammation and rheumatoid arthritis — It has been shown to have great anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to reduce the effects of several different chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, acne, and colitis.
  • Protect lungs from smoking and liver from alcohol — Green tea has been shown to reduce cellular damage in a smoker’s lungs and also to reduce liver damage caused by alcohol and other toxins. While not supporting either of these activities, this may very well explain why Japanese people tend to have a lower rate of lung cancer.
  • Prevent tooth decay and bad breath — Green tea helps to fight the germs and mouth viruses that cause bad breath, and is not erosive to the teeth like soda which helps to prevent tooth decay.
  • Reduce the risk of osteoporosis — With the help of a high phytoestrogen, flavonoid, and fluoride content, green tea helps to build bone and preserve bone density, thus reducing the risk of osteoporosis.

What Doctors Need to Know About Treating Overweight Patients

Posted on May 26, 2019 in Uncategorized

A recent article on Health.com, The Surprising Reason Why Being Overweight Isn’t Healthy by Ginny Graves, has spurred a lot of reaction. The focus of the article is pointing out how the medical profession can tend to be biased against overweight women to the point of misdiagnosing or not diagnosing them at all.

The article was also posted on CNN. Just reading through the endless comments will give anyone an accurate picture of how biased the general population is against overweight people. Doctors are people too. Just because they have obtained a level of education only a minute portion of the population is smart enough and determined enough to achieve, doesn’t remove their personal opinions and biases.

Doctors are human. Receiving the degree, certification, licensure, or reciting an oath, does not automatically remove the person’s opinions, values, paradigms, or biases. Most people can intellectually agree to a doctrine and accept it on an intellectual level. Unless the person can honestly accept the doctrine on a core spiritual level and change their paradigms, their personal biases will not change. This is true for any medical practitioners, including doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, chiropractors, etc.

Doctors are human and have personal biases just like the rest of the population. To effectively address the problem of Overweight Patients being discriminated against, we must recognize this aspect of our doctor’s personal perceptions. Health care practitioners need to recognize their own biases and paradigms as well. They also need to be aware of the frustrations they feel when treating overweight patients for complaints that are typically a result of weight.

Doctors and other practitioners are held to a higher standard because of their profession. Because the main part of their job is working with people, they have to understand overweight people’s paradigms and feelings.

First thing, we already know we are fat! Most overweight people also are aware of the long list of health problems and diseases associated with being overweight. We usually are already well educated on the topics before a doctor ever brings them up to us. Any overweight person who has searched the internet, read a magazine, or been on an organized diet, will already have at least a basic education in the health risks of poor diet, inadequate exercise and obesity.

When a health practitioner needs to talk to his overweight patient about health risks or weight loss, he will only be effective if he approaches the patient with dignity.

o Don’t make any assumptions! Just because a person is fat does not mean they eat a lot of fast food or candy or are couch potatoes.

o Do directly ask your patient specific questions about her lifestyle and habits in a non-judgmental manor.

o Don’t assume an overweight person is lazy, weak-willed, or doesn’t care. There are many different factors at play in an individual’s life, health, genetics and past that contribute to their weight problem.

o Do act with compassion and open-mindedness. Objectively evaluate all of the factors at play in each individual patient’s case. Understand that people who are overweight can be extraordinarily sensitive about their weight. This is especially true if the person has failed at dieting or has past emotional traumas.

o Don’t dismiss your patient’s needs because of their weight. Even when some patients are so overweight that diagnostic tests and evaluations are difficult, it is the practitioner’s responsibility to insure that the patient gets the care necessary even if it means referring the patient to a different provider.

o Do be objective when treating your overweight patients. If there is a problem with appropriately sized exam tables or diagnostic machines, be sensitive and actively find an alternative place to have your patient examined.

o Don’t use guilt, shame or cajoling to talk to your patient about her weight problems. It is disrespectful, insulting, and hurtful. Many overweight patients who are highly sensitive about their weight problem will withdraw and cope by binge eating.

o Do set in place an effective, sensitive, and comprehensive method to treat your patient’s obesity. Create objective, non-judgmental questionnaires to learn what issues are behind your patient’s weight. Do not simply pass off your patient to someone else. Follow-up with them and be an active participant in the team who is treating your patient’s weight (dietician, therapist, support group, diet plan, etc).

When health practitioners can be sensitive and respectful of their overweight patients, they can actually make progress in their care. Check your attitudes. If you are a physician, make a commitment to treat your overweight patients with the same care and concern you treat your patients who smoke, drink alcohol in excess, abuse drugs, or do anything else that is destructive to their health.
