上帝的神奇藥物God's Amazing Pharmacy

I received this from a friend. I am trying to track down the original citation for it. If anyone knows, please comment so that I can give a proper reference.

上帝的神奇藥物God's Amazing Pharmacy
It's been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh、made dry land、planted a garden、and made animals and fish、long before making man.

To ensure healthful living、God left us some clues as to which foods we should eat to keep specific parts of our body healthy!為了確保健康的生活,上帝留給我們一些線索來告訴我們該吃什麼食物以對我們身體的一些部位有益。We call this God's Amazing Pharmacy.我們稱之為上帝的神奇藥物

A sliced carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil、iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye. And yes、science now confirms that carrots greatly enhance blood flow to our eyes. 切片的胡蘿蔔看起來像人的眼睛。瞳孔、虹膜和放射的線條,看起來完全就是人的眼睛。科學也的確證明胡蘿蔔能大大促進血液向眼部的流動、改善眼部功能。

The tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. Research shows that tomatoes are loaded with lycopine、a wonderful heart and blood food.

Grapes hang in a cluster resembling the shape of the heart. An individual grape looks like a blood cell and research today shows that grapes are a wonderful heart and blood vitalizing food. 葡萄一串一串在一起形成心臟的形狀。每一顆葡萄看起來都像一個血液細胞,現代科學研究也都證明葡萄能極大增強心臟和血液的活力。

A walnut looks like a little brain、with left and right hemispheres、upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on a walnut are like the neo-cortex. We now know that walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

Kidney beans help heal and maintain kidney function and、yes、they look exactly like the human kidneys. 菜豆能治腎並幫助維持腎功能,而且它們看起來確實很像人的腎。

Celery、bok choy、and rhubarb look like bones. These foods target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet、the body pulls it from the bones、making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

Avocados、eggplant and pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female、and they look just like these organs. Research today shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week、it balances her hormones、helps shed unwanted birth weight、and helps prevent cervical cancers. How profound is this? It takes nine (9)
months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit.... There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).

Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.

Sweet potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics. 紅薯形狀像胰腺,可以調節糖尿病患者的血糖指數。

Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries 橄欖有助於改善卵巢功能、保持卵巢健康。

Oranges、grapefruits、and other citrus fruits look like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts. 橘子,葡萄柚和其他種類的柑橘看起來就像女性的乳腺,事實上它們有助於保持乳房的健康,促進淋巴液進出乳房。

Onions look like the body's cells. Today's research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion、garlic、also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.

Why are we so afraid to get sick?

I wrote this as a comment on a friends blog, but thought I'd re-post it here as well:

1. There is no magic point prescription to prevent getting sick. One has to look to the individual constitution and support the deficiencies and resolve accumulated stagnations to promote health and wellness, harmonize ying and wei and boost yang/wei qi, etc. We are treating individuals who get sick, not sickness/illness.
2. Why do you want to prevent getting sick? I think most people will be shocked by this question. But the reality is that getting sick (and we are talking about external invasions) provide a very valuable opportunity to the bodymind to release accumulated stagnations. An example of this is chickenpox. I won’t get into the vaccine debate here, but according to classical Chinese medicine and pediatrics, children are born with inherited toxins from there parents. It is the exposure to a virus that allows for the release of this toxicity. And if handled appropriately, the child becomes stronger and healthier after the illness. I believe this to not be limited to pediatric infectious diseases. Of course, we are not talking about the reckless behavior that gets people sick, but why are we all so paranoid about getting the flu? You just might be healthier on the other side of it……

Formula Families

Currently reading and appreciating "Ten Key Formula Families in Chinese Medicine" by Huang Huang. The organization of the book is simple and direct, dedicating a chapter each to the formula families of ten key herbs. Huang begins each chapter, not by jumping in to an analysis of the formulas themselves, but first by outlining the formula family presentation or symptom-sign complex as well as the formula family constitution. When looked at in this way, it helps streamline one's diagnostic categorization by helping to understand the 'personality' of each formula family by first understanding the key functions of the chief herb itself and how each formula within the family highlights one of those key functions. Interspersed with nice case statistics and appendices it is a book I definitely recommend.
