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.

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.
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.
