Headache 3

Cause of headache 3

When my daughter was 7 years old, we changed her bedroom to a bigger one. This room is in the northern part of our house. Her bed lied in north to south direction and she used to sleep head to north. In this way, her head was close to the window, around 1.5 meters away.

After some time moving into the bigger bedroom, occasionally my daughter was complaining about headache. I did not pay attention too much and wondered whether she knew what headache really meant. Later except complaining about headache, she began to say her neck was in pain.

When she complained more and more, we took her to family doctor. Doctor did check and did not find anything wrong. Based on that my daughter was having glasses, doctor suggested having her eyes checked just in case something is wrong with eyes, which could cause headache and neck discomfort as well.

We also did that. There was nothing new that was found wrong with her eyes. I was not so worried about her. But later I noticed that she always moved around her neck while she was playing or do something else. One day while seeing her moving her head around, I asked her why she did that. She said that she felt comfortable to do so. To help her, I did some massage on her head and neck to reduce the pain just like what I did to my horrible headache. After that, she did not complain about her headache and neck pain much anymore

Then one night, around 2 clock in the morning, she came to me and said she wanted me to sleep with her. So I slept in the outside of her bed and she slept in inside of her bed. While sleeping outside of her bed, I began to feel the cold wind blow on my head from the window. In the beginning, I tried to ignore that cold wind, but very soon this cold wind made my head feel so cold so I had to stand up to rearrange curtain to cover the windy area. Windows are sealed but obviously not perfectly sealed, there is still little wind coming into room. I could feel it while my head was close to the window, especially when the temperature outside is around minus 10 or even lower degrees.

At that time, I did not connect this cold wind with my daughter’s headache and neck pain. It was after quite a few years learning TCM, then I realized that why my daughter had headache and neck pain while she was sleeping in that room. The cold wind is the only cause to her headache and neck pain. I did something again to her head and neck even though she had not complained about her headache for long. While I was pushing these points connected to wind attacking on her head, she was screaming because of the pain caused by massaging, which is the sign to show that a lot of cold wind stayed in her head still.

According to TCM, the cold wind is very bad to human body. The worst is that you have cold wind blowing on you while you are sleeping, which could interfere body’s function very much. Because during sleeping time, our body energy is dealing with internal maintaining, there is no external protection available, which is why our body is so easy to get hurt from the cold wind even though it is mild.

With this experience, once one of my friends P talked to me about her son’s headache. She took him to family doctor and doctor did not find anything that they could explain why the boy had headache. When P told me this, the first thing I asked her was the arrangement of her boy’s bed room. Knowing that her boy’s headache was caused by the cold wind from the window, I just let P do something on her boy’s head. Her boy’s headache will be gone soon, which I am very sure about it as I know the bottom reason of her boy’s headache.

According to TCM, the five natural phenomena in the universe can cause health problems. These five natural phenomena are wind, cold, wet, dry and heat. Cold wind is the worst one to human body. The great part is that in some of meridians, there are points to deal with different health problems, such as wind, cold attacking to our body. When massaging relevant points of meridians, we can help our body to get better.

Headache 2

Cause of headache 2

A Chinese friend who has diabetes does not believe in TCM at all. His family and my family are quite close so we contact very often. He thinks it is good to have some pills from conventional medicine to have his diabetes under control.

TCM seems like some old trash in his eyes. But he knows that those pills can only control his blood sugar. He feels that his health condition is getting worse and worse.

Once I went to visit them and asked him how he was. He shook his head. Before, after physical exercises, he felt better. In spite of body weight or blood sugar, everything worked well with physical exercises. But now he felt weak and physical exercises gave him headache. He did not know what to do to help his body.

I told him that the headache after physical exercise was not related to his diabetes. It was because he went out while he was sweating on his head. This reminded him that he did go out of the room directly into outside while he was sweating on his head.

From a cold environment to a warm environment, our body needs some time to get used to. It is the same from a warm environment to a cold environment. Our body also needs some time to do the adjustment.

The better health you have, the better ability you have to do this adjustment.

If our body has not enough time to do the adjustment, problem could occur. That part exposed most should be the first to be felt. So it is easy to understand why headache happens when he went out with sweating on his head.

Why Women Can not Get pregnant

When being small in China, I seldom heard that a woman could not get pregnant.

At that time, life was very hard and living condition was so poor. However, birth rate was high and quality of babies seemed much better than today’s.

Now in China life is easier than before and living condition is quite good. But so many women could not get pregnant naturally. Even through IVF, the successful rate of pregnancy is still very low.

Why is it like this? What is the reason behind?

When I studied The science of public health, the statistics showed in Europe more than 30 percent of women could not get pregnant naturally. It is too high to be believed.

I used to wonder why in Europe birth rate is so low while living condition is much better than a lot of other countries.

Modern medical technology can help to fertilize an egg, but it is hard to keep the embryo develop in a woman’s womb. It requires body energy to retain the developing of the embryo.

Body energy runs through all our body in a form of blood and blood goes better in a warm state so body temperature should play a very important part in low birth rate.

This explains why a woman can get pregnant naturally by just eating and drinking warm, which I have written before.

Function food 2

All food has certain function.

It is the function of food that matters a lot, for instance, beans and milk products can build up gas. But there is also some food that can help us release the gas in our stomach, for example:fennel.

We are all so different from each other. If you pay close attention to your food in-taking and see how your body reacts to this food, you will notice what your body likes and what your body does not like.

It is not because of the vitamin or mineral contained in the food that are important but the function of the food, which our body can make good use of.

Those who have a sensitive stomach can tell a lot about what their body likes or what their body does not like, which is why I have said that they are relatively healthy.

If your health status is in this stage, you can keep your health through eating some food.

What food is best for you? Just try different food and see how your body reacts,then you know what you need.

You are special: No one could know you better than yourself.

Every piece of food has function. This function must be transformed by our body energy. If our body energy is low, the function of food cannot be transformed. Then it becomes a burden to our body.

Now it comes to the key issue for our health, body energy.

When our body energy is low, no matter what you eat, it is just hard to see the good effect.

Allergic to cats

One acquaintance does not like to go to her husband’s parent’s place as she is allergic to cats and her in-laws have a cat.

Once, I asked her what kind of symptoms she has with her allergy. She said that she would keep on sneezing with tears in her eyes and a running nose.

One day, she came to my home and she was talking about her allergy in her in- laws place again.

I was wondering if she has to be close to a cat and then her allergy happens or something else. She said she did not need to be close to a cat to have her allergy. As long as she is in a place where there is a cat, the symptoms for her allergy will appear.

Then I told her we have a cat peacefully, but I did not see her sneeze, not tears in her eyes and not a running nose. She did not believe me in the beginning. Very soon, she saw my cat walking towards his door.

With half her mouth opened, she looked at me and my cat, shocked.

I was joking if she is allergic to her in-laws, which caused her allergy to cats. That is really a point, she laughed. But I am really allergic to cats, she said.

Obesity

Most of people think that obesity is caused by consuming too much food with high calorie. Calories give us energy.

According to this, people with overweight should have more energy. As matter of fact, those who are overweight normally are very easy to get tired and they could not handle much physical work. Isn’t it a contradiction?

At the same time, there is another group of people who eat very little, but they still complain that they are getting heavier. Why is it like that?

A few of Chinese famous actors were saying in public that they could get heavier by drinking water. I am sure that they are not the only ones who feel that way.

I noticed this through my husband. He eats less than I do, but his weight grows quicker than mine. He could manage to do less and less physical work, even it is hard for him to hang up the washed clothes. If he tried his best to do some physical exercises,it will be impossible for him to do something else.

Obesity is caused by low body energy.

The food with high calories is just stored in their body. This food cannot be digested properly; of course it cannot be absorbed properly. The fat is just stored in their body. It is gall that resolves fat. The high calorie cannot be resolved by gall and it cannot be consumed as energy. Then it becomes a burden to our body. Obesity is the consequence.

To those who eat less and still feel that they are getting heavier,they have the same problem, low body energy. All in takings are just built up in their body, which is why they feel heavier.

PMS

I must have had mild PMS before my daughter was born, but I had not paid attention to it much so I was not sure about that.

After my daughter was born, my PMS was getting worse. Short of breath, tiredness and bad mood were so common to me.

Before period, my temper was getting very bad and very bad. Sometimes, I was so much close to lose control. Because of that, I went to see my family doctor in Australian. I did not say how bad I was, she began to talk about how bad it could be, like before the period, you just want to leave your husband, you felt so bad about him and so on.

I was thinking, oh my goodness, how could she know so much details?

What she was talking about was very much like me. Obviously, I was not the only one who felt like that.

She suggested that I should take a kind of tablet made of natural herb, called Evening Primrose Oil. This tablet is supposed to be good for women who have PMS.

I did and then I felt like a little out of control, just want to sing and behave like somebody in sane. I stopped.

Later, we came to Sweden. PMS did not get better. But one thing I noticed was that before period, I was so easy to get irritated by my husband who had been aware for some time. He called it red light time and he had to be cautious. After the period, I felt so lucky to have him; he is so charming and I love him so much.

Nearly every month it happened like that, which made me think of the reason behind.

It must be something that led to how I felt about my husband. Then what is it?

The key point to be healthy

Do not spend too much time in finding out what you eat can help you to be healthy any more. It would not work definitely.

What you should care is whether your body has enough energy or not, which is the key point to be healthy.

In order that your body has enough energy to function well, the most important thing you have to do is to sleep in right time.

You must think that I am talking rubbish because you could not sleep in the first place. In that case, you have to find out the reason why you cannot go to sleep.

If you have problem in your stomach system, it is difficult to go to sleep. If your heart does not feel well, it is hard to go to sleep, too. There are other reasons, as well.

Everyone has problem and we are all different. Pay attention to your body and it will not be that difficult to know your reason of sleeping disorder.

Doctor uncle Six

In my close relatives, there were three and half doctors. Two uncles in my father side , one was conventional medicine doctor, I called him uncle Six and one was Chinese medicine doctor, I called him uncle One.

Uncle Six did very well in medical school and He had worked in a state owned company until Chinese economic reform began. Then he opened his own practical clinic. He found that he had diabetes in his late thirties.

In his last few years, he went to Chinese doctors to seek help. I still remember that he came to my family and went to a Chinese doctor in another province with my mother because my mother had seen this doctor for a while for a lump in her breast.

My mother’s lump was gone with this doctors’ herb medicine and uncle Six heard that.

He wanted to see this doctor, too because insulin could not help him anymore. It was from him that I heard the word insulin for the first time. That was long time ago.

Anyway, this Chinese doctor did not keep him long. He died of diabetes at age of 42 in 1981.

Depression

Depression is related with heart. In another word, if your heart does not feel good, then it is easy for you to feel depressed.

One easy way to check: lie down on your back and draw a line between your two nipples and then find the middle point. Massage the middle point, you should feel pain there.

The other way to check is to massage your under arms, you will also feel pain.

Spring is coming. A lot of people will feel bad, feel depressed.
