- The Three Treasures -
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."
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 is a look at 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
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 thought!
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.
The Three Treasures Are Often Likened
To A Candle in the Dark:
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 creation.
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.
The 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!

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.
Superior Class of herbs (See list at bottom

'The Rulers'. They control the maintenance of life in general. These

by doctors with the most deadly of all pharmaceuticals. This is why I have
