1. Acupuncture: a special treatment for more than two thousand years
Acupuncture treats diseases by inserting fine needles into the body. In July 1971, Dr. Henry Kissinger secretly visited China to prepare for the historic visit of President Nixon. His entourage is the New York Times reporter James Reston. In China, Reston suffered an acute appendicitis attack and was performed in 1916 by the Peking Union Medical College, established by the Rockefeller Foundation in New York. On the second night after the operation, Reston's abdomen began to experience considerable discomfort. .
After his approval, an acupuncturist in the hospital inserted and manipulated three slender needles, one inserted into the outside of the right elbow and the other under the knee. Abdominal pressure and bloating were significantly relaxed within one hour, and problems no longer occurred after that. James Reston described his experience in acupuncture in his report from Beijing. This is the first report of contact with American English citizens, and at least the vast majority of people do not have daily contact with Asians.
In contrast, acupuncture has a history of more than 2,300 years in China. The earliest recorded Chinese doctor Qin Yueren was considered the founder of acupuncture. Qin Yueren's biography was included in the "Historical Records" [Historical Records], a masterpiece of the famous Chinese historian Sima Qian [135 – ?BC]. As is known to all, Qin Yueren lived around 407-310 BC and was the contemporaries of Hippocrates [460-377 BC], the father of Western medicine.
Qin Yueren traveled extensively in the feudal countries that compromised China in his time, treating both men and women. As a result, he won the auspicious production area, which means Wayfaring magpie – the good luck of a fly flying around here. A number of carved stones dug from the tomb of the Eastern Han Dynasty [25-220 AD] depict a human head and a bird's body.
On one occasion, when Guo Guo [now Jixian County, Henan Province] passed, Bentham learned that Guo Taizi had passed away, and his subjects were preparing to associate with him. After careful examination, Bian said that the prince only experienced a deep coma called death reversal. He succeeded in resuscitating the patient by acupuncture points on his head and was known for rejuvenating the deceased. This is the first time acupuncture has been used in China.
Acupuncture is extraordinary. Needle history has always been one of the most commonly used tools in everyday life, used to build clothing around the world. Just as needles are used to sew clothes, they can also be used for medical suture incisions. Although a hollow syringe is used to infuse or withdraw fluid into the body, it seems incomprehensible to puncture the body with a solid acupuncture needle to treat the disease. Most people don't like to pierce with a needle and associate acupuncture with pain and injury. No wonder, "acupuncture" alone means causing dissatisfaction or anger in English. Through trial and error, therapists around the world have independently discovered similar treatments for pain and disease, including herbs, roots, wraps, blemishes, bloodletting, massage, meditation or surgery. But the invention of acupuncture is unique to China.
Why did the ancient Chinese began to pierce the body with naked needles to treat the disease? A generally accepted answer to this question is that acupuncture evolved into the natural growth of everyday life in the Neolithic Age [8000-3500 BC], through accidental accidents and repeated empirical experience processes. According to this theory, people noticed that physical problems were alleviated after irrelevant injuries. This has led to the discovery that damage to a certain part of the body can alleviate or even cure a disease or condition already present in different parts of the body.
It is believed that through this discovery, the Chinese in the Neolithic era eventually began to use stones, animal bones or bamboo to deliberately induce damage to alleviate physical problems. The traumatic nature of acupuncture seems to be quite rough under modern standards, and the long history in China seems to make its prehistoric origin theory more credible. However, if acupuncture is indeed due to repeated empirical experience of accidental injury, it should be developed around the world, not just in China.
2. The Meridian of the Body: The Earth River in the Microscopic World
According to Chinese medicine, a network called “meridian” is distributed throughout the body, carrying gas [life energy] and blood to nourish organs and tissues. The meridians of the human body are very similar in structure and function to the rivers of the earth. The river is the meridian of the earth in the big world. They are channels that contain water and are the vitality of our planet. On the microscopic scale, the human meridian is the channel of life force that contains the vital forces of blood flow.
Ancient Chinese found that there were twelve regular meridians in the human body. The Neijing or Huangdi Neijing [the classic of the Yellow Emperor] [edited in 104-32 BC] is the pioneering work of Chinese medicine and the earliest extant acupuncture medical fair. The chapter entitled “Changshuidao [Jingshui]” specifically discusses the correspondence between the twelve conventional meridians and the twelve major rivers in China. The rivers mentioned are located in the Yangtze and Yellow River basins.
Flood control techniques and terminology provide a vivid analogy of acupuncture treatment mechanisms. Blockages in these "energy rivers" act as dams, blocking the flow of gas and blood and allowing them to be used in the connecting channels. Acupuncture points can eliminate obstacles and cure the disease by reconstructing the normal flow of blood. In the same way, dredging rivers by removing sediments and preventing flooding by allowing water to flow freely. Since the early emergence of acupuncture in the Western Han Dynasty [206 BC – AD 24] in China, the use of similar flood protection and acupuncture has been used. This hydraulic term is not just for its evocative image. Instead, it shows the understanding that Chinese ancestors reached during this period on the correspondence between nature and humans, rivers and meridians, floods and diseases.
3. Mining instead of Diking: China's ancestors have unparalleled control over flood control
China is located on a large and steep continental slope, unlike any other continental slope in the world. Located on the western part of China, the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is the highest plateau on the earth with the highest geological age. It is known as the roof of the world and has an average elevation of 4000-4500 meters. A Chinese proverb says: "The higher the mountain tower, the higher the water." The vast and cloud-filled Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is the largest and highest natural water tower on the earth, storing the snow produced by the water vapor emitted by the world's oceans. As the compacted snow melts in the sun, the water that is released flows naturally down to the east and accumulates into tiny streams, which then converge into a large torrent of water and pour into the ocean.
The two longest rivers in China, the Yangtze River and the Yellow River, originate from the height of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. They are critical to agricultural development and population growth in Chinese history. However, due to the sharp drop in altitude from the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau to the sea level, the water flow in these rivers is extremely fast and can easily cause flooding. The Yellow River is the most muddy river in the world and is particularly notorious for its devastating floods.
The name of the Yellow River refers to the large amount of yellow silt or loess it carries. The loess layer is highly susceptible to water erosion. As the Yellow River rushes through the Loess Plateau in northwestern China, the torrential floods flood the yellow silt, which is unusually large and sweeps downstream. As the river reaches a flatter area, the current water flow slows, depositing a large amount of yellow silt and raising the riverbed.
The fertile land of the middle and lower reaches of the Yellow River attracted the Chinese prehistoric ancestors to settle along the river bank, creating a culture based on cultivation, fishing and hunting. However, these pioneers were quickly threatened by severe and persistent flooding in the river. In the early stages, they may live in natural or artificial highlands or lead nomadic life to avoid flooding, while also begging for supernatural forces to seek help. But as the population increases, they have no choice but to work hard to harness the power of the river.
This definition of Chinese culture is reflected in one of the oldest and most popular legends in China, namely, how Daxie controls the flood. It is said that during the period of innocent or five emperors [2700 BC to 2000 BC], severe floods spread throughout the country, causing enormous disasters for the people. Emperor Sui appointed his minister, Gun, to control the river and control the waters. However, Gun tried to stop the flood by setting up dams and dams. Gun's son, Yu, was appointed by the next Emperor Shun [2100 BC] to continue his father's work. Taking lessons from his father's failure, Yu noticed and used the downward mobility of water. He dug the canal…Food, Health & You is an incredible package that offers so much more than just a simple docuseries.
