“Happy, healthy, wealthy, wise & lucky”
An excerpt from Ron Teeguarden’s book “The Ancient Wisdom of the Chinese Tonic Herbs” (buy it)
The Attitude Of Radiant Health
‘One of the great secrets of a long, satisfying, and happy life, according to Eastern wisdom, is to focus on health instead of disease. This is the psychological basis of the art of radiant health. Develop the attitude of radiant health, and radiant health can be obtained surprisingly easily. Once we have trained ourselves to focus on the attainment and maintenance of radiant health, and have acquired the tools for accomplishing our goal, the functions of the mind, body, and spirit can flourish. Once we have achieved a state of radiant health, the bodily functions cannot easily fall into disharmony, disease cannot readily arise, and, from the perspective of our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health, we are beyond most dangers.
Radiant health is attainable by most who have not already severely damaged themselves through abuse and wrong living. It is also attainable by many who have severely damaged themselves but have the will to regain true health.’
Chinese medicine looks at psychological cause of disease using terms as ‘disturbed shen’ – spirit, ‘heart fire’, ‘liver yang rising’, ‘liver chi stagnation’, all represent emotional pictures. So along with flower remedies Chinese herbs are helpful and in fact powerful in healing bodily damage due to emotional disharmonies.
