Understanding The Three
Treasures of the Human Body:
The Three Treasures of The Human
Body are: Jing (Essence) Chi (Vitality) Shen (Spirit) The Taoist tradition,
which is at the foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine states, "There
are Three Treasures that in effect constitute our life. These are known as
Jing, Chi and Shen."
The ultimate goal
of the Herbal Doctor is to cultivate, balance and expand the Three
Treasures attempting to harmonize all aspects of one's being. This is best
accomplished by focusing one's attention on the Three Treasures. There are
no exact translations for the terms Jing, Qi and Shen into English. They
are generally translated, though, as Essence, Vitality and Spirit.
Here the understanding of each of The Three
"The Superior Treasure" existed
before the body existed. It enters the body tissues and becomes the root
of our lives. It is this very essence that defines what we are and who we
are, also what and who we will produce. This is why it is associated with
our development and also our sexual energy. We must take care of our jing
throughout our lives or we will die. Note: Can you see how this relates to
our western understanding of DNA?
Qi or "Chi":
This is God's created living
energy that empowers us to live, breath, and do all our voluntary actions.
We cannot create it but we can use it to the fullest and keep its pathways
within our temples (bodies) clean. It enters us in the form of "Heaven
Chi" through the nose as we breathe and circulates through the twelve
meridians nourishing all our vital organs keeping them held firmly in
place as long as we take care of ourselves.
Note: Chi is vaguely
beginning to be "accepted" in the west but it must be recognized as a
"chain reaction of energy" in the body and its path (the 12 meridians) and
must be taken seriously (mapped out on medical charts) and not fouled up
with "science" trying to relate it to western
Shen: This is a combination of our mind and spirit. It is
developed by both our Jing and our Chi. It gives us our will and our
conscience. Our Shen depends on a healthy Jing and healthy free flowing
Chi to make the right decisions in life and to contribute to the world and
to our creator.
Three Treasures Are Often Likened To A Candle in the
The Jing or Life Root of the body is like the candle wick
and wax. They existed before the body of the flame did and they are made
from the elements which are actually condensed energy which is God's own
The flame of the candle is exactly like Chi. This is the
energetic living activity of the candle which will last a good long time
if kept from wind and rain or other outside disturbances but it will
always eventually burn itself out. It can, however be made to burn a much
longer time if the right wax materials are added as it burns.
glowing light that the candle radiates is the Shen. The better quality of
wick, wax, and other materials, the greater the flame and the greater the
flame, the greater light the candle radiates. The more light the candle
radiates, the more people are not in darkness. The more people are not in
darkness, the better the world!
So what makes a superior tonic herb separate from other healing
herbs and what part of the body do these tonic herbs address?
Basically, they must address at least one (Often all) of The Three
There is a small grouping of herbs
called The Superior Herbs. These are the true tonic herbs. Although
everyone is different in their balances of Yin, Yang, Chi, Jing, Shen,
Blood, Heat, Moisture, and other factors, This group of Superior Herbs are
those herbs that can benefit just about anyone.
The Superior Class
of herbs are called 'The Rulers'. They
control the maintenance of life in general. These Superior Herbs are not
considered to be 'medicinal' in the usual sense of the word. They are not
used to treat specific diseases or disorders, yet such things as Week Sore
Knees, Poor Eyesight, Low Sexual Energy, Impotence and Infertility, High
Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Obesity, General Week Vitality, even
Gray Hair, and many other things that plague many of us are often
completely cured by these Superior Tonic Herbs.
symptoms just mentioned are commonly treated by doctors with the most
deadly of all pharmaceuticals. This is why I have always said doctors
should concentrate on traumatic injuries and stay far, far away from our
tonic health with their "Science" and
