Fill your tea cup about 3/4 full of the mix and top it off with the milk of your choice. Pour what you have measured into a small cooking pot and bring to a boil. While it’s getting hot, prepare your tea, either as loose leaf or a tea bag and then use the hot liquid to steep the tea as you normally would.

This was designed by Anthony Barbieri-Low, a professor at Princeton University who specializes in the “social, economic, legal and material culture” of Ancient China. Barbieri-Low and one of his PhD candidates put the reconstruction together in 2005. You do need Quicktime Player to use it, and if you don’t have it, it’s absolutely worth getting it for the experience. You can read translations of the major inscriptions and check out the various carvings that were found.

So much of Chinese medical diagnosis, whether “Classical,” or ”Traditional,” focuses on organ pathology when dealing with erectile dysfunction. It is definitely possible for this to be a channel problem, especially when dealing with younger men, but I rarely hear it talked about as such. If we pay attention to our surroundings, our culture and our current lifestyle practices, perhaps we will start to see that something that may be hiding under the Chinese medicine radar for us.

In June, a New York Times article discussed a series of studies by Steven M. Schrader have shown that a traditional bicycle saddle allows for a very unnatural condition in which your perineal area, including all it’s surface nerves and blood vessels, takes on 25-40% of your body weight. Within only a few minutes, normal oxygen circulation levels go down by 80%.

Chapter 2 of the Suwen, The Great Theory on Regulating the Vitality During the Four Seasons, describes the behaviors associated with a healthy lifestyle during the various seasonal changes. Because I cannot include footnotes in the translation, this post addresses some of the thoughts and discoveries I had while reading the chapter.

Chapter 43 of the Lingshu, Yín Xié Fā Mèng, talks about Unprincipled Xie qi giving rise to various dreams. As the Xie is moved through the body by the Ying and Wei, as well as the Hun and Po, Qi becomes excessive in some places and insufficient in others.

Hermeneutics. That’s what.

What exactly does this weird old word have to do with Chinese medicine?

Introduction
"The more I work, the more I see things differently, that is, everything gains in grandeur every day, becomes more unknown, more and more beautiful. The closer I come, the grander it is, the more remote it is."
Giacometti
