Blood cancer

My third brother was a conventional medicine doctor. Year 2006, I visited him. When seeing him eat a lot of fat of lamb, I asked him if he was worried about his blood fat. He was smiling and told me that he just got it checked. Blood fat level was very normal unlike my sister’s.

My sister’s blood fat level was high. As long as eating some meat for two meals, she will feel dizzy. In that case she has to be very careful with her food. My third brother was also very proud to tell me that his health was very good since for a long time he had not had a cold or fever even though he had to get along with patients so closely every day in his private clinic.

At that time, I did believe that he was strong enough while he was telling me about his health state.

In the beginning of year 2007, he was sick and could not get well with his own treatment. Later he was found out with blood cancer. He felt so bad and looked very bad as well. Anyway he could manage to go to a blood sickness treatment center in a big city, Tianjing China. After finishing all related tests, in the morning he began to have the Chemotherapy treatment. The next day in the afternoon, his wife was informed by doctor that she should prepare herself. The Chemotherapy treatment was terminated. From the beginning of Chemotherapy treatment till his death, it was less than three days. He was only 49 years old.

While he was cremated, cremation worker later talked to my nephew and asked my nephew what my third brother died of (In China, it is common to ask that). Then the cremation worker said that it was not my third brother’s time to be dead yet. My nephew asked him why he thought so. The worker explained that the liquid from burning his body was still yellow, which meant that his body still had chance to be alive, still manageable. When a person’s live comes to an end, liquid from the burning body should be grey.

Today, when I look back, at the time when he told me that he was okay with his blood fat level and his so-called good health state, as matter of fact, his health was very poor and his body was not reacting much anymore so that his real blood fat level could not be found and his body was not capable to have a cold or a flu even though he was so close to his patients.He had thought he was quite healthy, but the truth was his immune system stopped working. This also explained why so many people with cancer are found at the later stage. It takes more than ten years for cancer to develop. Why don’t people feel anything? The reason is that our body loses the sense for long.

I think at that time when he was found out with blood cancer, his body energy was so low; his body was so exhausted. Under this circumstance, he was treated with Chemotherapy. It is just like that you gave a very good beating to an exhausted man and expected that he could work properly. How cruel it is to treat our body this way.

The consequence is not hard to imagine.

Corona Virus- self help

Now people all around the world are worrying about the corona virus so much. We try to do our best to keep away from it but it is hard to say who could get it or who could not get it.

However, we can do something to help our body to fight with it. Of course if you would like to do something.

The followings are the things we can do to assist our body in my opinion.

Eat less greasy food as much as possible to reduce the working load of our stomach.

Eat warm food and drink less cold to save body energy. The body energy is the crucial thing for us to live on.

Sleep early and have more rest. If you are tired, just take a break.
If you feel cold, put a hot bottle over your stomach.

If you have dry cough, put a hot bottle over your chest or upper back and see whether it helps.

The best wishes

More sick, smarter for a child

A child who gets sick often is normal.

In China, there is one saying about children’s health. That is if a child does not have small sicknesses, like catching a cold, stomach problems or a fever, this kind of normal sicknesses, this child will have a big health issue later in life.

My second brother’s son had not been sick since he was born until he was 16 months old. At that time, there was not children health control in China at all. But when being 16 months old, the boy began to cough and he was found out that there was a big hole in his heart. Two months later, he died.

Except for that he had never been sick before the last cough; the other thing that my brother noticed him was that his son did not play so much. It seemed that he had no interest in playing.

Children are small but their immune system is strong, very alert to anything that attacks their body, which is why we often see children are the first group who begin to have flu and they are so easy to get a cold and a fever. If they eat something unclean, their body reacts very soon.

People think that they are weak. Physical, they are weak, but their immune system works so well, which is why they are so easy to get sick.

On the contrary those children who have big health issues do not get sick often because their body is not strong enough to fight, which is the potential risk for heavy sickness in later life.

Health is in our hand

Who could know our body better than ourselves, doctors? no, they are the persons who can read different kinds of reports. They do not have the chance to know special you and me.

To help our physical problems, we have to know our body well, then we will be the doctors of ourselves. We will be the best doctors of ourselves because who could know our body better than ourselves.

Any sickness has a reason. Bacteria, virus, cell failure could be one of them, definitely not all. If our body is strong enough, bacteria, virus could not defeat our body.

It is our body energy level that decides whether we are healthy or not. Food is the resource of body energy. The problem is if our body can use the food efficiently, but why not?

Welcome to my page and I hope you find as much help as I have in TCM.

We are lucky to be sick

15 years ago, I read an article written by a person who is from Taiwan. The title is:You are lucky to be sick.

Her idea is based on Buddhism,which means that when a person is sick, it is time for him to pay the price for those bad behaviors he had done. The more often he could be sick, the more he has paid for. Then later life will not be that hard because he has less “debt”.

In China, there is one saying: if a person is easy to be sick, he has less possibility to be sick heavily.

We often heard that someone was found out with cancer but he was so healthy and seldom got sick before. Is he really that healthy or his immune system just does not work anymore. The truth is his immune system was not working for long. The reason for his immune system was not working is that his body energy was too low to support his immune system.

However, those who are easy to be sick are relatively healthy because their immune system is still working. We have running nose when having a cold and we have diarrhea when eating something bad.

Those who seldom have cold or flu or diarrhea are the people who have high risk for heavy sickness later.

So we lucky to be sick often.

Care the dearest – our body

We are all so different from each other. To understand special you, me, him and her, we have to get close to you, me, him and her so that we can know each other better. This is the simplest thing,but do we know our own body? Actually we are not sure about that because we just use our body and have not cared our body much even though no one can know our body better than ourselves.

No one or nothing in the world loves us as much as our body does, but we treat her the worst. If we could only be a little nicer to our body, she will repay us so greatly. Shouldn’t we know something about our body, something beyond what we can read through books.

It is not that difficult at all. What we need to do is just to pay attention to our body daily. Then we will know what our body likes and what our body does not like. Through this way, we gain some knowledge about our body, furthermore, the human body herself. This knowledge can help us to be healthy in a right way, in a great way.

There is a very famous writer (Jia Ping Ao) in China who had hepatitis. With help of medicine, he was struggling with his hepatitis for a long time, better and worse, better and worse again and again. Later he got tired of going to hospitals and refused to do more treatments; instead, he began to talk to his body and thanked her for the hard job every day. To his great surprise, his health state has improved. For that he wrote an article. He does not need to go to hospitals anymore and he knows how to take care of his body much better in a way, in a natural way and a great way.

We can do that, we can all do that even though we have heavy sickness.

Consequence of over consuming body energy

My uncle Four was getting heavier at his late forties. At early fifties, he got high blood pressure. Since then he began to have some conventional pills to control his blood pressure to a normal state.

Later he became so interested in playing Majiang. Normally, he played to clock 8 or 9 in the evening and then went home. One day, he played Majiang whole night. After sleeping, the next day he got a stroke and half of his body was paralyzed. He did not get recovered and was lying on bed since.

He could manage simple talking. His wife took care of him well. One day, his daughter came back home from her university and saw that her mother just gave her father a little to eat while her father still wanted more. Daughter decided to let her father eat as much as he wanted since it was Chinese New Year even though her mother told her that he could not eat much.

With the good meal, later in the evening that day, my uncle Four lost consciousness, very soon he died.

Before he passed away, Uncle Four’body energy was very low; he could only handle a little food because his body only can manage to digest a tiny amount of food, which his wife knew well with her experience. But his daughter did not know that and she thought that the more food her father ate, the quicker he got recovered.

We eat more food that our body could not digest, and then the food will become burden to our body. The more burdens our body has, the more healthy problems will appear.The worst, over consuming our body energy can kill us directly.

A half doctor—My Father


My father’s work actually was welding, but since knowing acupuncture, he used to help village mates with his acupuncture a lot when he was in his thirties and forties( it should be around late 50ties and early 70ties), which is why people in that village called him half doctor.

Because at that time, China was in such a poor condition, nearly shortage of everything, especially in countryside, my father’s acupuncture did help a lot.

I still remember my father took out his little yellow box with acupuncture pins in a hurry and went away with a person who came to my family to ask for my father’s help at middle of night.

It was many years later after we moved away from that village; one of the village mates came to visit my parents and she was talking about that my father saved quite a few people’s life in that village. Most of them were women after giving birth.

We lived in northern part of China. There used to be a big bed made of mud and bricks and this big bed had tunnels under and these tunnels were connected with stove. This big bed is called Kang. Because being connected with stove, it was warm to lie down on it.

This old lady was saying that normally on a Kang, you could often see a new born crying baby, the unconscious woman who just gave birth, my father who was squatted on the Kang, doing acupuncture on this unconscious woman and other worried family members.

The great part was that no one died in my father’s hand. All those unconscious women were saved with my father’s pins.

My father used to say that acupuncture was not that complicated, but what you have to know is how to take care of the dangerous situation. What this dangerous situation was that the person who had pins on his or her body got fainted.

He became good at acupuncture because one of his uncles was very good at acupuncture so he learned from his uncle. To learn acupuncture, you had to be good at different points in human body. There are 365 points in our body. You do not need remember all of those, but some crucial ones you have to remember.

In order to let people keep in mind easily, these points were organized into different groups. Some group is in charge of the problems in stomach system and some group can take care of the pain in back and so on. The basic things you have to do are to remember these rules and at the same time, you have to know where these crucial points are. Of course you have to be able to find them as well.

I guess that my father’s uncle asked him to recite those rules first and then let him to find those points in body. After that, being brave enough, he could put a pin on a body.


When we were small,if we got a a cold or flu, my father used to take out pin package, let out some blood in our fingers, three fingers in each hand and then massaged our arms a little bit. After that, let us sleep. Normally, we got recovered after good rest. I still remember that I began to cry as long as I saw my father take out that pin package.

My father was a vegetarian. In the beginning, he was not a vegetarian. When he was small, he got skin problem and it got worse and worse. His parents took him to different Chinese doctors but the problems could not be solved so later his mother took him to a temple to seek help as his mother was a pious Buddhism. In this temple, a monk told his mother that he should be a vegetarian.

Since then he became a vegetarian and soon his skin problem was gone. My mother used to complain a lot about my father’s food because she had to cook special for him.

During the Chinese culture revolution, he got a lot of troubles as a vegetarian. One of the aims during Chinese culture revolution was against any religions. In my father’s factory, they thought he was Buddhism even though he had explained to them again and again that he was vegetarian because of his health state and it was not because he was Buddhism.

However, they did not believe him and they wanted to try whether what my father had said was true so they cooked lamb meat and let my father eat.

As the only bread maker at home( five children), facing the violent treatment, he gave in. He ate the lamb with tears in his eyes. Soon after that, he threw out all the meat he ate and had diarre. Seeing this reaction of his body, they finally believed that his body could not handle the meat and left him alone eventually.

Before he was seventies, I could not remember he had ever been in hospital.

In Inner Mongolian, there is one saying that you should not do something irregular during the middle day between clock 12 :00 to 14:00 in summer since it is very hot and dry.Your body might not be able to handle the situation that is not regular.

At the age of 74, he had an argument with my first brother and then went home by bike around clock 13:00 in noon while temperature was 38 degrees and it was very dry summer. He was tired and angry. As soon as being home, he laid down instantly.

When waking up, he could not move his right part of body any more. So he was taken to my third brother’s clinic at once to have some treatment. By that time, my sister was with my third brother to have some treatment as well based on her poor health.

My third brother said my father’s blood vessel was so soft, nearly as good as young people under 25 years old while my sister’s blood vessel was so hard. She had so called absolute good nutrition in her diet.

My father did get better and he could feel his right part of body and he could move his right part of body as well soon. The problem is that he began to feel his right part of body cold all the time since the stroke. My third brother gave him a lot of advanced conventional medicine to help his blocked blood vessel to get through, it just did not work. Even in hot summer, he felt his half body cold.

This problem had lasted for one or two years. Later, my nephews’ uncle knew some Chinese medicine and suggested my father to have a certain ready made Chinese medicine. This herb ready made medicine is supposed to help stomach system to function better. After he had taken this medicine for two months, my father’s half body coldness feeling was gone eventually.

The last year of his life, he woke up in the morning and then he moved his arms front to back and then left and right. He said that he felt better by doing this. Doctor once told him that his nutrition was so poor and suggested him to eat egg or drink some milk. He did try to drink milk. Very soon he gave up. His stomach felt very uncomfortable with milk.

At age of 86 years old, my father passed away. He had stayed in bed just 11 days before he died. Only once, my first brother had to help him to go to toilet. Otherwise he himself could manage to do. And he was not found anything wrong with his body through the conventional medical equipment.

He was a peaceful man and seldom got angry in my memory. It was my third brother’s death that made him very down. Apart from that, he was cheated when he tried to do some business at early 2000ties, which crumpled him up. Otherwise, I definitely believe he could live to more than 90 years old healthily.

He used o to say that he did not care how he was born but he did wish he could die easily. Dying easily means that he had not suffered much before he died. And he got what he wished.

Remembrance of my father

Mind kidnapped

Mind kidnapped

When working as an English teacher in Sweden, I asked one of my colleagues to visit me as we got along quite well.

On that day when she came to my home, we talked for a while and had lunch together.It had not been long; however I noticed that she looked very tired so I suggested that she had better have some rest on my sofa and she did.

After 40 minutes, she woke up and felt much better.

We were in the same office. Sometimes she was nice, charming and intelligent. Sometimes it was very easy for her to get irritated and she had very low tolerance. She mentioned that she has some kind of problem, related to psychological.

She often complained that she had neck pain and other physical unwell. Sometimes if not being busy, I would give her a neck massage. She would feel better. If being busy, I would tell her what to do to deal with her physical problem. It will work definitely; I am so sure about it.

Later, I stopped working there. We still contact quite often. Occasionally she called me and asked me what to do with her stomach pain or some other physical discomforts. She normally tried to do what I asked her to do, like pushing certain points and told me later she did feel better.

This summer, her so called psychological problem got worse and worse, which made her feel so bad and little bit out of control. I asked her whether she would like to visit me so that I can find out what I could do for her because I think her psychological problem is related to her physical unwell. This irritated her very much and she wrote a long email to let me know how her problem could not get better totally from scientific point of view. Medical research, science and a lot of others showed something, etc.

People‘s minds are kidnapped by modern medical research. Conventional medicine becomes so dominant in people’s mind; it is just like the Catholic in 17 centuries. I often see a person looks like a water ballon and they still drinks a lot of water. The reason why he drinks a lot of water is because scientific research showed that it is good to drink water and water can help kidney to clean up. We can do a little test: put water into washing mashing without turning on, see what happens, nothing.

As a matter of facts most of physical discomforts and psychological problems can be helped by us through having rest, food, avoiding doing something in certain time or doing some simple massages.

But people do not believe that it could be like this and they believe in science and science is struggling for finding convincing results that could stay long.

Do another little test: draw a line between your two nipples and push the middle point, those who are not often well or feel depressed will have pain there. Those who have heart problem will have sharp pain there. Ask a question: why?

Autism and ADHD

To help people with Autism, we can focus on taking care of their heart. If their heart feels good, Autism will be disappeared gradually. It is not a psychological problem.

Autism is caused by the physical problem so if we can solve the physical problem, Autism will be gone.

To help children with ADHD, we can focus on looking after their stomach system. If the stomach system is good, ADHD will be gone as well.

No matter it is Autism or ADHD, we can always do something to help them to be better.
