"The past is not clinging to you;
you are clinging to the past.
Once you are not clinging,
the past simply evaporates."
For thousands and thousands of years, Chinese Medicine has seen that the power of the mind is an incredibly potent and powerful force. It has the ability, through the medium of suggestion and belief to make the body strong and healthy or to make it weak and sick.
Methods of mastering, manipulating and controlling the conscious and subconscious minds have been written into and practiced in Chinese Medicine since its’ formation; from Qi Gong to meditations to Shen Gong to the art of Feng Shui.
Mind work is one of the many great pillars supporting the foundation of Chinese Medicine.
One of the best ways to increase your physical and mental health is to simply train your mind into a state of positivity; in this state your internal reactions, such as the building and upkeep of cells are performed at peak and productive levels.
You could imagine that if you have the opposite, a negative depressed mind, your body will slump and feel tired. Everything from your concentration to your digestion will become sluggish. And even the reproduction of your cells will be less efficient, causing weaker cells to be created, which in turn will cause you to slump even further and lay the grounds for possible future illnesses.
To clearly see the power of the mind in action, all we have to do is look at the placebo and nocebo effect in western science …
"If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples, then you and I will still have each one apple.
But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas."

“Most disease comes from things that enter the mouth, most trouble comes from words that leave it.” – Ancient Chinese Saying
This wise old proverb helps us to reflect on two very important ideas.
The first is quite obvious. If we eat poor quality foods, or over or under eat, then we can quickly make our bodies sick.
These days it has become even more important for us to follow this sage advice as our processed diets are now more responsible than ever for polluting our systems and causing many of our modern ailments. We can easily see this in the alarmingly ever increasing rates of obesity, heart disease, dementia and cancers. So obviously eating good clean, natural and nutritious foods in moderate amounts is part of the way to bring balance to our lives and to keep ourselves strong and avoiding illnesses.
