July 10, 2019 1585 Views No comments

Do you often have problems with eye fatigue, frequent eye oil or a lot of discharge in the eyes? According to Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners, the health of our liver is closely related to our eyes. Once you have a lot of discharge, oil or your eyes are easily tired, it means that you are having problems in your liver as well. In this sense, if you want your eyes to be in their good shape, then you first need to take care of your liver. Liver expert, Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu pointed out that since our liver is linked to our eyes, if we have enough sleep and absorb sufficient nutrients in our diet, our liver is naturally in a good shape, and we would have brighter eyes too.

During this high-tech era, it’s important to support the organ in charge of our vision.

Chinese medicine practitioner, Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu pointed out thirty years ago that the technology would be dominating the current society, that is, we mostly need our mind, our eyes and our hearing to lead us to different aspects in life. He explained that human eyes work incredibly fast, and they are the first organ to lead our direction. We need eyes to look for things, to navigate and to search for information on the phone. It’s vital to have good vision. And that’s why we need to take care of the organ in charge of our vision.

To improve our eyes’ health, it is first important to nourish our liver

"To improve the health of your eyes, you must start with the liver. Liver nourishment is the root, and this particular source should be handled well.” Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu pointed out that the liver is the organ of metabolism, it is the main source of our eyes’ function. Our kidney is the source of a function of our genitals. Since our kidney and liver have the same source, they affect each other. That’s why our eyes can determine whether we like a person at once, whether we have feelings towards a person, or whether a fight is going to occur. Our eyes always make the quickest decision.

You must take enough rest to keep your eyes in good shape

Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu further indicated that if we’re tired easily, it means that our liver doesn’t have enough energy; and if there’s not enough chemical energy, our liver doesn’t have sufficient energy either. Only with enough nutrients and amount of sleep shall we nourish our liver. People of modern days think too much and move too little. To keep our eyes in their good shape, it is important to take enough rest.

We must find the right ways to rest and let our liver rest primarily.

Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu explained that the chemical composition of the liver can be produced in the liver after eating. There are countless numbers of ingredients produced through the chemical composition in our liver. If the chemical composition does not function well in our liver, then we would not be able to absorb what we eat, nor benefit from it. Only through resting well and nourishing our liver, would our liver recover quickly. Having liver supplements is not the only solution that we should stick to, we have to bear in mind that having a balanced diet is the key.

Meditation can help to increase the energy of your liver, and generate sufficient chemical reaction

So, how do we energize our liver? Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu said that to strengthen our liver, we can adopt ways of resting, such as through meditation, which is the main navigation for chemical reactions for our eyes. He stressed that for traditional Chinese medicine practitioners, our liver acts as the General of our bodies, it leads our lives to different directions. We need to plan our daily routine, and that puts our liver into action. When we put our mind at ease, we make our eyes rest too, and we do not achieve this only by sleeping. The world can work normally if we work normally, and both our mind and bodies need to move. If we are to lead a dynamic life, we need to move. By resting and meditation, we can restore the energy of our liver and eventually generate the chemical reaction of our bodies.

To innovate is to have a bright vision

So, what to do if there are problems with our liver? Dr. Lee Sheng-pu advised us to visit the doctor at once. As for daily maintenance, we can make use of some trustworthy liver supplement. In Buddhism, the idea of destiny is emphasized. It’s very important in our lives and it’s closely related to our mind as well. Once we find the right solutions, they can help us solve the issues. The same applies to liver supplement. Our bodies work similarly to our nature, and it explains why our liver plays such a crucial role in maintaining the balance of our bodies. To innovate, we must first have a clear vision and a clear mind. They are interlinked and inter-dependent.


The Right Diet for Summer

June 26, 2019 1662 Views No comments

During the hot summer months, one should eat more vegetables and fruits, less fried and spicy food. You should not consume anything too cold either. When there is heat in our body, we have to supplement it with water slowly; we should never drink too much water at once. There is a reason why people in ancient times wouldn’t drink too much water when they were engaged in heavy manual labor. Also, when one is in a marathon race or having a break in a boxing match, he shouldn’t drink too much water either. It’s actually a way to retain power. Of course, you still need an appropriate amount of water to provide you constantly with oxygen, power, and energy. It is essential to drink just the right amount of water before going out or during work. Make sure to supplement yourselves with water gradually, rather than drinking too much at one time.

We have to rely on our bodies in the long run. If you have sufficient health knowledge and are willing to take care of yourselves, you will most probably still live healthily when you reach your 70s or 80s. If you let yourselves do whatever you want, then as early as your 30s or 40s, you might possibly suffer from atrophy of kidney, cirrhosis, fatty liver, general sclerosis of organs, degenerative joints, body aches and so on. We have to be the master of our own bodies as it reflects to us about what we do to it. Imagine if you see frost in June, this is a bad sign as it indicates that the climate has been messed up. If we imagine our stomach as the days in Summer, we’d know naturally that drinking ice cold water would not be a good idea, since an icy cold stomach makes it impossible for our energy to flow to other parts of the body. Our limbs require energy to function, and if there is no constant flow of energy from our core, our limbs would undoubtedly become powerless, our body would become tired or ache. All these hurt our bodies prematurely.

During the summer, the nights are short, and the days are long. The sun rises at five o’clock and only sets at seven or eight o’clock. The daily routine of human beings varies according to the rhythm of nature. We work during the day and rest at night. That’s why our workload increases a lot in summer, and we consume more energy too. In ancient times, the summer was a great period to lose extra weight, but it has become impossible for people of the modern days, since we often have air-conditioning in our environment, we consume too many cold drinks and have an excessive diet. People used to eat less when it was too hot, and their body could adjust according to their changed diet too. Nowadays, people are more prone to gather fat in their bodies with air-conditioning, hotpot, cold drinks, etc. When time goes by, fat is trapped inside the blood vessel walls, and such issues might eventually lead to the hardening of blood vessels or neutral fatty


During the Summer months, people with a cold stomach and inner heat in their intestines have a higher chance of constipation.

In summer, when the temperature is hot, many people often have a shorter temper, get impatient easily and even suffer from physical discomforts such as dizziness, dry mouth, bad breath, insomnia, and constipation. When the body senses inner heat, some people will have a poor appetite, and they only want to have ice cold drinks and foods to cool down. According to Chinese medicine practitioners, it would only make the body create more heat if one doesn’t eat when he has no appetite, or only have cold drinks/foods. He would also have a worse temper and get tired more easily, thus suffer from more discomfort.

The Famous Chinese Medicine practitioner, Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu, said that when one feels inner heat during summer, it means that he lacks sufficient water and nutrients, and he cannot properly discharge the inner heat of the body. If he chooses not to eat when he has a poor appetite, or have only cold foods, his cold stomach would slow down the digestion and circulation and reduce the body’s ability to dissipate heat. In turn, it is easier to accumulate waste in the body. Furthermore, consuming cold foods will cause nutrients to solidify because of the low temperature, thus producing triglyceride. It blocks the blood vessel walls and makes the person prone to stones or skin diseases.

Why do people who like to eat cold foods get constipated more easily? Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu further explained that as the gastrointestinal motility slows down, there is not enough water that’s evaporated, the body thus cannot absorb enough water. The body absorbs water through the colon and rectal. If there is not enough water, constipation is caused and a body that’s cold in the stomach and hot in intestines is formed. Also, when the feces are relatively dry and hard, a wrong bowel movement or constipation would make it easier to squeeze the veins, and cause hemorrhoids. It is recommended to practice abdominal breathing and focus on the navel during a bowel movement, as this can avoid the anus to produce excessive force. If this happens, women might hurt their ovaries and men might suffer from the enlargement of the prostate.

Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu stressed that if one feels really hot, he can use an ice towel to cool down, but our inner body is not suitable for coldness, we ought to supplement it with lukewarm water, sufficient sleep, abundant vegetables and water for moisture. If one tries to avoid the sun because he doesn’t want to feel hot or get tanned, then his immunity would surely be affected. It is thus necessary to look for the right ways to dissipate heat. Chinese medicine practitioners stress the importance of overall health and to have the right concept of maintaining health. It is also essential to keep up with good living habits to ensure the natural rhythm of our body functions, and to avoid illnesses.


Why men shouldn't just talk about being healthy and take action! So how can they live more energetically?

April 15, 2019 1495 Views No comments

A lot of men suffer from hyposthenia once they reach midlife or premature aging. They lack energy in performing a lot of tasks, they start yawning often, they have watery eyes; they start losing their memory, calling people by the wrong names, suffering from stiff bones & joints, weak waist and knees. Atrophy occurs in the general body shape, and there is frequent urination at night. Some of them even have less interest in sexual intercourse. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, all these are caused by the insufficient blood and malfunctions of the kidney. Through taking Chinese medicine to strengthen the spirit, nourish the blood and benefit the bones, there will be improvements.

Delicacy is the way to health; a flexible body is a way of life.

At 78 years of age, the Chinese medicine practitioner, Lee Sheng-Pu is still a very active person. He can go anywhere without a problem – he is still able to ski on the mountains or meditate in the snow. The reason why he still has such high energy has a lot to do with his philosophy of health, which is closely related to that of Laozi’s. He pointed out what Laozi had said, “a human body is born delicate and stiff at death. Grass and trees are born to be soft, and withered and stiff at death.” This has put a focus on delicacy and softness, which should be the way to our health. Our body should be flexible and soft to achieve its liveliness.

Our body should be rich in Qi, but we should mind our temperament.

The Chinese medicine practitioner, Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu, said that it might not be ideal for an old person to be “strong”. Even if he is strong when he’s young, he still has 90% possibility of not being able to live long. When a person grows old, he should be rich in Qi and have a flexible body. Especially when a person gets older, he should be soft and delicate, and should not lose his temper. Being soft does not mean that he should give in all the time, but uses this as his principle of dealing with matters in life. According to Laozi, “humbleness fulfills a person’s core, it weakens his will but strengthens his frame.” An aged person should focus on his Qi, and lead a soft attitude to life.

Rich in Qi and normal in temperature; when he squats or bends down, he should not feel stiffness.

Like water turning into ice, it is all due to temperatures! Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu explained that with temperature and softness, there should be no toughness, and there will be softness in the muscles and the heart. When a person is soft, it does not mean that he is soft to the others, but he’s soft to himself. It is an important survival skill to have a flexible and soft body and mind. Especially one has to train himself to be softer when growing older. When he’s rich in Qi, all his tissues, blood vessels and muscles will be full of Qi as well, and he’ll become more delicate. In this case, he does not feel stiffness when squatting or bending down, and that is all because he has enough Qi, and his temperature is normal.

Meditation tells you a lot of things.

Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu pointed out that if the temperature in the body is too high, it will impose a lot of pressure; and if it is too low, it will create condensation. This is closely related to the person’s diet and amount of exercise. When his blood is circulated throughout the body, it connects all the cells. You may try sensing your body through meditating, as it will send you some important signals. Think of visiting a Chinese medicine practitioner, who examines you through looking, listening, questioning and feeling your pulse, meditation works similarly.

How Diabetes affects your VITAL organs.

November 19, 2018 718 Views No comments

Diabetes ranks among the top 10 causes of death among Chinese people. It is estimated that there are 116 million people with diabetes in Taiwan and China combined. The difficult thing about diabetes is that a stable blood sugar level is hard to control, which can lead to systemic complications, including retina damage, kidney disease, thickening and hardening of artery walls, etc. In more severe cases, it may cause blindness, dialysis, amputation and stroke. Famous Chinese medicine practitioner Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu pointed out that using Chinese medicine to treat diabetes can restore the production function of islet glands so that patients can regain their physical strength and exercise, lowering the bodies blood sugar level naturally and stably, preventing future complications.

Dr. Lee has treated a 70-year-old patient named Mr. Luo who has been diagnosed with diabetes for several years. Mr. Luo started a strict diet eating less sugar and oily food and eventually developed a fear of eating. He lost 17 lbs following this diet, where he often felt dizzy and fatigued from lack of nutrition. After being treated by Dr. Lee using Traditional Chinese Medicine, the only diet changes he made was to avoid cold and sweet items. He’s gained 8 lbs back and has a great day to day energy, all while maintaining a balanced and healthy blood sugar level.

In Western medicine, they treat diabetes using hypoglycemic medication and insulin. Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu says sometimes a side-effect would prevent the body from being able to absorb any sugar, causing rapid weight loss and a drop off in physical strength. Please take hypoglycemic medication and insulin with caution.

Dr. Lee's professional opinion is that diabetes is not just a problem with insulin and glucagon levels secreted by the islet glands, but also an issue with the spleen, stomach, liver, and kidneys. Diabetes may cause pernicious anemia, where there are insufficient red blood cells being produced and eventually damaging your kidneys. A good kidney is important for maintaining a good red blood cell count. A diabetic patient may have sudden drops in blood sugar levels, and when the liver cannot immediately convert sugar into glucose for the body to use, some severe symptoms may arise, such as Dizziness, cold sweats, and fainting. Meaning a healthy liver and kidney can also help you combat Diabetes.

Using Western medicine and Chinese medicine treatments together?

Dr. Lee says Chinese medicine treatments are natural and work in sync with your diet, to make sure you have enough physical strength to exercise. He also believes that combining Chinese medicine with Western medicine to combat Diabetes may make the side effects less severe from western medication.


A meat lovers nightmare, constipation.

June 29, 2018 654 Views No comments

Do you love eating meat? Studies show that eating too much meat may cause higher chances of constipation with more severe cases leading to hemorrhoids. A lot of us really enjoy a good barbecue with lots of meat and often experience stomach issues or constipation afterwards. If you don't act fast to fix your constipation issues, it will lead to hemorrhoids.

Emotional Stress also a cause of constipation.

Dr. Lee Sheng-Pu, a world-famous Chinese medicine doctor, says that constipation is not just caused by eating lots of meats. Many people experience constipation from emotional stress and tension. For example, many new trainees and recruits for any industry often get constipated because of nervousness. Dr. Lee recommends other than eating fewer meals consisting heavily of meat, is that you need to constantly remind yourself not to be nervous and stay relaxed.

In order to confirm that tension has an effect on the digestive system, there was an experiment. Dr. Lee Sheng Pu said that researchers monitored a dog’s stomach while using electromyogram to detect its electrical activity produced. The test found that when there was food placed in front of the dog, the digestive system would release a bile causing tension and excitement in the digestive system.

Dr. Lee wants to remind you the digestive system thinks and is emotional too. Just like the brain, when nervous it sends signals for your hands and feet to feel cold or tremble and cold sweat. The same signals can make your digestive system array.

Steps to maintaining a healthier digestive system.

Dr. Lee, stresses the importance of eating more fruit and vegetables, the ratio of fish and vegetables 4 to 6, so it maintains enough water and fiber in the digestive tract. If you lack either fiber or hydration its easy to become constipated. Relax when using the restroom, do not use force or you will tense up your digestive system.
