In Chinese Metaphysics or the Chinese 5 Arts, one of the
most important subjects is health, wellbeing, and healing through Traditional
Chinese Medicine (TCM), known as "Yi" in Chinese.
TCM and Ayurveda, two of the oldest records related to human
health, suggest that human beings are born with the ability to self-heal and
balance their energy or "qi." However, certain lifestyle choices,
activities, or diets can disrupt this balance and lead to health problems. TCM offers
various healing methods, such as acupuncture and herbs, to restore balance and
harmony to the body's energy systems.
TCM is based on the fundamental principles of Chinese metaphysics, namely yin and yang with the five elements representing both polarities. TCM categorizes various body organs into five elements with yin and yang polarity. During a person's birth, they have already absorbed energy from the moment of birth, including the year, month, day, and hour elements, making these energies building blocks for the body. Some people may have weaker organs due to a lack of a specific element at the time of birth or due to clashes between elements in their birth chart. A Bazi consultant can help decode the birth chart and suggest enhancements through "man luck." Please refer to my earlier article on birth chart and elemental energy for more information.

Chinese metaphysics studies energy patterns within ourselves and the environment. Human energy derives from the food we eat, and in order to stay healthy, we must maintain a balanced diet, which has become a universal mantra. A balanced diet in TCM means balancing yin and yang and the five elements. TCM practitioners divide food into yin (cooling food) and yang (warming food) categories based on the taste and color of the food, followed by the five-element category.

Since our energy derives from the food we eat, it is advisable to consume food as close as possible to its natural form, fresh and direct from the source. The existence of the Homo sapiens species dates back more than 30,000 years, and while we have evolved in several ways, our body biochemistry has not changed that much. Our body enzymes are designed to break down natural food into energy packets that our body cells can easily absorb. Unfortunately, processed food has become popular over the years for its convenience and taste, but it has "contaminated" our eating habits. Processed food goes through a long supply chain, and each transformation step alters the natural chemical and energy structure of the food cell. Our body cannot recognize the modified chemical structure and therefore cannot metabolize the food properly, leading to toxins.
Natural Food chain which consist of 3-5 chain before comsumption
Processed food chain which could consist of 10 or even more chains
Processed foods can be a significant source of harmful chemicals that can wreak havoc on our health. It's true that we are what we eat, so consuming too much junk food can have a devastating impact on our well-being. When processed foods contain excessive amounts of salt, sugar, or other chemicals, they can negatively affect our body and brain chemistry. These unhealthy chemicals turn into toxins that can cause our cells to mutate and cloud our mental clarity. Countless studies have shown that healthy people tend to eat natural foods in moderation. Overindulging in food can overwork our digestive system and lead to imbalances that hinder our physical and mental performance. When our energy is focused on digesting food, we may find it challenging to think with clarity and make wise decisions. Therefore, it's important to remember that a healthy body and mind are essential for success in all aspects of life.
