  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 Treasures:

Jing: "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 thought!

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.

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!

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 Treasures:

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.

Remember these 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 Pharmaceuticals.
