Cause of Headache 3

Introduction

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 as time goes by.

Once I went to visit them and asked him how he was. He shook his head. Before, after physical exercises, he felt better. It seemed that 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 condition with diabetes.

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.

Cold vs. Warm

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.

Pregnancy: Why some women struggle

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.

Example 1: My friend’s friend was so desperate to have a child. But she could not get pregnant through natural way. The couple went to do IVF. They had tried a few times, still nothing happened.

For the last hope, they came to seek some help from a Chinese doctor. The doctor knew that it is hard for white people to drink the extract of different herbs due to the taste. So he suggested the lady to consume only something warm, not cold food, not cold drinks and not even cold fruit. She could eat cooked fruit if she really wants to have fruit. In five years, she should be able to get pregnant naturally.

Because she was so desperate to have a child and the other ways failed, the lady did strictly as she was told by the Chinese doctor. Two years later, she was pregnant naturally.

Helping yourself after pregnancy

Madam Chen was at her sixties. When being 40 years old, she got pregnant and gave birth to her son. Not feeling well in her stomach, she went to see conventional doctor and she was found out that she had stomach cancer.

Because her mother and grandmother in her mother side died of cancer soon after operation, she refused to have operation. However, Chinese medicine doctors did not help her either.

In order to live to see her son grow, she began to help herself. After trying different ways based on TCM, she eventually found the way to save herself. That is meridian massage and sleep before midnight. Not only did she cure her own stomach cancer, she also discovered so much about how our body works, which caught my whole attention.

Meridian massage is something that I am familiar with. It was the second time for me to hear that cancer can be cured through meridian massage. Madam Chen is so confident and so sure about it. But I cannot believe her totally for once. I was wondering and would like to try her way and see whether it is like what she said or not.

I have studied so much and learned so much about human body, but still I felt so much confused, especially about my own health, different phenomena happened to my body after taking the medicine, why? so many questions, and so much confusion. Under this circumstance, I began to try the way that Madam Chen was talking about.

After a few years testing, I want to say that I totally agree with Madam Chen. She is a great lady; she inspired me and enlightened me. Our body is so great and so capable! We mistreat our great body so much!

Today, with my own experiences, I want to tell the world our great body is so much capable and health is in our hands as long as we know our body, which is not hard at all, everybody can do it.

Function of Food

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.

My Grandmother’s Experience

My grandmother on my father side was a pure vegetarian. She believed in Buddhism. She only ate vegetable, nothing related to animals. I still remember she cooked her food in a special wok. Nothing else was cooked but her food.

She lived in time when China was in very bad condition. Anyway, she lived to 75 years old and managed to take care of herself.

At the age of 75, one of her sons fought with somebody. She was so worried and went to see him on foot. She had walked more than two hours. Then after sleeping, she lost her consciousness the next day. A week later, she passed away. Before that, she was totally okay, physically and mentally.

From today’s nutrition’s perspective, she did not have enough nutrition in her diet at all, but her health was great, how could you explain it?

My Father’s Experience

My father was vegetarian as well but he was not Buddhist. When being small, he had impetigo. This problem was getting worse and worse. Local Chinese doctor could not help him. Eventually, my grandmother took him to a temple. A monk suggested that my father should eat vegetable only. His impetigo was gone soon after he began to eat only vegetable. Since then he became a vegetarian. Like my grandmother, he only ate vegetable, nothing related to animals.

At the age of 74, he had an argument with my first brother and then went home by bike in noon while temperature was 38 degree and it was very dry summer. 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 than my father’s, what an ironic consequence it is!

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. 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 nephew’s 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 two months having this medicine, my father’s half body coldness feeling was gone eventually.

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 managed to do. And he was not found anything wrong with him through the modern technology equipment. He was a vegetarian all his life. The idea of nutrition seems weak.

My Daughter’s Experience

When my daughter was small( before she was 1 year old), she did not eat well. I took her to family doctor and told doctor that she did not eat well. The Doctor asked me to give her some children vitamins, two drops a day. I just gave one drop a day.

Later, we went back to China in a summer. It was very hot; she did not eat much, even worse than she was in Australia. In this case, I thought I should give her vitamins two drops a day to keep her nutrition level. So I did. The following day, she had a blood nose. It was the first time that she had blood nose. I had no idea what caused this blood nose, just thought that she lost a lot of blood, I still need to give her two drops of vitamins. So I did. On the same day, she got blood nose again, and it took some time to stop the blood coming.

Why suddenly she had so much blood from her nose. I looked back at what I did to her. There was nothing special for food and there was not much difference from her normal daily activities either.

To a sudden; I thought of the vitamins I gave her. That was the only thing I did to her so differently from the other days. Instantly, I threw that vitamins away.

My grandmother and father lived on poor food and their health was good enough. Vitamins and minerals are important to human life. I am sure nobody can live on vitamins and minerals. Why don’t we think about the concept of nutrition?

Allergies

The spring is coming. People with allergy will have some problems at this season.

There are a lot of explanations about why you have allergy in spring, but I think the allergy in spring is because your body is trying to do something good for you.

If only we could help our body do what our body wants to do. The allergy problem could be gone.

Having some pills to stop the symptoms, you have to have them every year. Later, it would not work anymore.

Allergies 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

My Experience with 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 loose 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 of my bad mood 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 on 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 the 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.

Cancer

Cancer is not scary. The scary thing is the treatment for cancer.

A lot of us have cancer cells in our body. Only those whose health status is getting worse and worse have cancer cells out of control.

Who could know exactly why certain part of our body has cancer in the first place? No one knows, but our body knows the cause precisely.

It is not that you have cancer first and then your health is getting worse. On the contrary, first of all, your health is getting worse and worse, and then cancer cells become out of control.

In this case, doctors give you operation and chemotherapy! Who or what can heal the wound caused by operation? Everyone knows that it is our body that does that. Chemotherapy is even more scary.

After these two fatal damaging treatments, you could survive long, which is by chance. If you could not survive long, that is not hard to understand.

It costs so much body energy to take care of the wound caused by operation and it also costs so much to get recovered from chemotherapy. In a lot of cases, our body just cannot make it any more or any longer.

Even though living long enough after the treatments, you could live even longer if you do not receive any treatment because your body can manage more.

If we begin to take care of our body first, sleep at good time, give our body more time to have a good rest, our body can get recovered, trust me!

But no one believes that, they prefer to go to hospital to be cut and to be punched.

I will say I could help you feel better with your cancer if you do not have any treatment from conventional medicine. Most people will think I am ridiculous.

The truth is that I am not ridiculous. I am just one of those persons who have realized that and proved that with the help of TCM.

My brother’s fatal Blood cancer

My third brother was a conventional medicine doctor. Year 2006, I visited him. When seeing him, he ate a lot of lamb fat, 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 and it was much better than 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 few years 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 enough 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 had to be 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 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 looking back, 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 he could work properly. How cruel it is to treat our body this way. The consequence is not hard to imagine.

We often hear that someone had certain cancer but the impression that he gave us was that he was very healthy because he seldom was sick. It was just like my third brother. As matter of fact, we are not sick often, which is not because we are healthy, but because our immune system is not working anymore. In this case cancer cell becomes out of control.

Let us look at children

Children in kindergarten are so easy to get sick. One is sick and nearly all the others get sick as well. It is not because children are weak; on the contrary, it is because children’s body is so sensitive. Their immune system is so alert that as long as there is a problem, their body reacts very quickly.

Pay attention to children, you will notice that when being sick, they do not play well or you can see they are not interested in playing anymore. Why are they like this? Because all their body energy is consumed to fight with the invaders, bacteria, virus or cold; there is not much energy left for them to handle playing. They are so pure.

When being sick, children just sleep all the time. During this sleeping, their body energy is working so hard on taking care of the problem in their body. As long as this fight finishes and problem has been solved, children begin to play again because their body energy is back from that fight.

In China, there is one saying. That is if a child does not often get cold or fever, so called small sickness, then the child will have big problem.

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 hole in his heart. Two months later, he died.

Except for that the boy had never been sick till the last one, 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.

This saying is available for adults as well. Those who can have cold or fever once or twice in a year are healthier than those who have not had a cold or fever for a few years. Those who can have a cold or fever in a year should have less risk to have cancer cell to be out of control.

First of all, our body energy becomes very low and then we begin to have difficult sickness. It is definitely not because we have cancer first and then our health is getting worse and worse.
