The Miracle of Saliva

Saliva is a clear, watery fluid made by the body's salivary glands located inside each cheek at the bottom of the mouth and ears, as well as near the front teeth by the jawbone.

Saliva plays a pivotal part in human health -- it is a miracle of recovery and rejuvenation.

According to Eastern medicine, human saliva has miraculous healing power. Research in a recent Japanese study indicated that saliva can fight cancer cells in rats and other animals.

For thousands of years, Chinese physicians have believed that saliva has all the ingredients for optimizing longevity and overall wellness due to its inherent benefits on the five human organs: the heart, liver, spleen, lungs, and kidneys. Saliva is anti-aging because it promotes cell growth and cell division -- a key factor in internal nourishment and rejuvenation, without which the aging process accelerates. In addition, saliva strengthens bones ad teeth, cleanses and detoxifies the body, aids digestion of food and assimilation of nutrients. Ancient Chinese physicians even used the sufficiency or insufficiency of saliva as part of their disease diagnosis.

Saliva is a miracle in itself because it is your body's built-in self-made fluid for self-defense against viruses and infections. Harness the power of that miracle to your advantage, and this is how:

  • On waking up each morning, stand erect.
  • Gently exhale through the mouth three times to rid your body of toxins accumulated during your sleep.
  • Close your mouth, and begin hitting your teeth for 30 seconds as if you were chewing food in your mouth.
  • Then, slowly massage your teeth with your tongue for 30 seconds.
  • By then, your mouth should have generated some saliva. Do not swallow it immediately. Close your eyes, and visualize that your are swallowing the saliva and it is slowly dripping down to the dan tian, which is the "energy center" of your body. Dan tian is located in the lower abdomen between the navel and the pubic bone. Physically, it corresponds to the functions of digestion, elimination, and reproduction. Psychologically, it functions by promoting a sense of physical balance and stability. Dan tian is also a source of power for physical energy, sexual vitality, and inner power as emphasized by the Chinese Qi Gong exercise.
  • After the mental visualization, then slowly swallow the saliva.
  • Repeat this on waking up and before going to bed.

Do not undermine the miracle of saliva. In addition to the above daily practice, make your own saliva as much as and as often as you can during the day. You can always increase your saliva by thoroughly chewing your food before swallowing ; it is also good practice to let your food remain in your mouth for a little longer, say, a few seconds, after chewing before swallowing it (this also applies to drinking liquid). Induce your mouth to make more saliva. Make the most out of the miracle of saliva.

My Favorite Yin-and-Yang Dish

We all love to eat. However, we must remember that we eat to live, and not live to eat. Some foods are more stimulating than others. Too over-stimulating foods, however, over-stimulate the nervous system, and therefore may not be beneficial if they are consumed too much. Caffeine, for example, has been said to kill vitamin B in the body; although it has immediate uplifting effect, its long-term effect is undesirable.

In Chinese diet, the emphasis is on balance and harmony, rather than stimulation. Any external stimulus may prevent this expression of harmony from within.

Chinese diet is all about balance and harmony. Chinese diet is yin and yang (the female and the male, respectively)—using foods to balance and complement each other for optimum health rejuvenation and wholesome wellness. These two opposing forces in Nature balance and complement each other, thereby resulting in perfect harmony, without which there is only internal chaos, leading to disease and accelerated aging.

One of my favorite recipes is Fruit and Vegetable Curry.


3 bananas, sliced
3 tomatoes, diced
1 small onion, sliced
4 whole cardamom pods
2 apples, sliced
raisins, a handful
cranberries,  dried and sweetened, a handful
raw almonds, a handful
pumpkin seeds, a handful
1 stick of cinnamon
4 cloves
1/2 inch ginger
1-2 tablespoons of curry powder to taste

Put all ingredients in a pot. Bring to boil, and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve with brown rice.

I just love this nutritious dish. It is simple and easy to prepare.

My Newly Published Book On HUMAN WISDOM

The TAO of Living for Life

This book is about the art of living well, which is being in the material world we are all living in, but without being of this mundane world. This daunting and challenging task requires profound human wisdom, which comes from TAO wisdom, the ancient wisdom from Lao Tzu, the ancient sage from China, more than 2,600 years ago.

Lao Tzu was the author of the immortal classic Tao Te Ching, made up of 81 short chapters of Chinese poetry on human wisdom, one of the most translated books in world literature.

This book explains the essentials of TAO wisdom, based on Stephen Lau's own translation and interpretation of Lao Tzu's immortal classic Tao Te Ching with his comments after each of the 81 chapters. Living for life is the wisdom of living in this contemporary age. It is not easy, so you need TAO wisdom.

For more information, click here.

The TAO of Living for Life shows you the wisdom of living not just for yourself, but also for others as well --  just as the famous English poet John Donne says: "No man is an island."  Once you perceive this intricate inter-connection between people, you will self-intuit the wisdom of Lao Tzu.  After all, according to Lao Tzu, there is no word or blueprint for human wisdom -- it is all about self-intuition.

Healing Exercises

Use exercise to heal, because it has to do with the mind, the body, and the spirit. Natural healing is holistic healing, which is healing of the body, the mind, and the spirit. In order to heal, the mind must have the intent to heal, and the body must be ready for healing; during the healing process, the spirit must be energized to overcome any setback or obstacle that may interrupt with the healing process. Exercise can heal the body, the mind, and the spirit.

For exercise to be effective, it must be a regular routine that shows discipline; just like the mind that must be disciplined and focused in the pursuit of natural healing. With the right exercise mindset, you can use exercise to heal not just the body, but also the mind and the spirit. Exercise can be instrumental in healing virtually any disease.

Exercise increases the heart function by stimulating blood circulation to optimize blood pressure, and to enhance lung efficiency by increasing the input of oxygen to the lungs. Regular exercise promotes both heart and lung health.

Exercise boosts the immune system. Aerobic exercise may have significant and particular benefits for people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes by increasing insulin sensitivity, lowering blood pressure, improving cholesterol levels, and reducing body fat. For those people with multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease, exercise may improve mobility and reverse muscle atrophy by reducing spasticity in neurological disorders.

A number of scientific studies indicated that regular exercise reduces the risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer, and even breast cancer. Use exercise to heal cancer.

Exercise increases the supply of oxygen to the brain, and thus enhancing brain function, making the brain younger for longer. It can even create "high" through the release of endorphins, which are euphoric substances in the brain. Regular exercise is good for overall mental health.

Regular strenuous exercise relieves any built-up tension, and thus is effective for stress control and stress management. Stress is one of the main underlying causes of disease. Use exercise to heal distress.

Low-impact aerobic exercise, such as jumping rope or a bouncer, significantly improves the body's circulation to benefit detoxification, which holds the key to holistic healing. The body must be ready for healing, and the removal of toxins provides the optimum environment. Exercise detoxifies both the body and the mind through increased blood circulation and movement of lymphatic fluids. Use exercise to heal through detoxification.

Yoga is an excellent example to illustrate how you can use exercise to heal. Yoga is more than an exercise: it is a science that has been practiced for thousands of years, based on ancient theories, observations, and principles about the connection between the body and the mind. The intrinsic healing benefits of yoga have been proven by modern medicine.

Yoga not only provides the body with the most practical approach to attaining a high level of physical fitness, but also stabilizes emotions and elevates mental attitudes. In other words, yoga unites the mind, the body, and the spirit in holistic health. Essentially, it is a holistic approach to wellness and natural healing. Through acute awareness of the body's posture, alignment, and patterns of movement, as well as the focus on natural breathing, yoga is therapeutic in that it helps the body find true harmony, thereby healing the body, the mind, and the spirit.

Also, use Taoist exercise to overcome insomnia or get natural sleep, perform this simple Chinese Taoist exercise:

Lie on your back. Bend both knees.

Use both hands to pull your knees towards your chest, and breathe naturally.

Hold for one to two minutes, and relax.

Straighten your legs, putting your arms and hands at your sides. Relax for one to two minutes.

Take a deep breath, and stretch both arms upwards above your head.

Then, slowly bring your hands down while you breathe out.

Massage your body from your chest to your abdomen for a few minutes.

Bring both hands at your sides, and relax.
Repeat as necessary until you feel drowsy and fall asleep.

This exercise is good not just for insomnia, but also for your lower back pain, if it is performed on a hard surface.

Detox the Mind to Detox Cancer

Detox the Mind to Detox Cancer 
“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” George Bernard Shaw
Your mind is your being, and your brain is the most important of all your body organs because it controls your whole being. How you think, what you do, how you act and react, and what you do with all your life experiences—they ultimately become not only your memories but also your realities.

Cancer is a complex and multi-faceted disease. It involves not just your body systems, and your body organs, but also your mind. Scientists have attested to the inter-connection between the body and the mind. In other words, a toxic body may lead to a toxic mind, and vice-versa. That is to say, having cancer may adversely affect your mind, how it thinks, how it reacts, and how it makes choices and decisions; by the same token, a toxic mind may not only cause cancer but also undermine the prognosis and the recovery of cancer.

Do you have a toxic mind?

You may have a toxic mind if you have depression, or you are regularly suffering from episodes of unexplained sadness.

You may have a toxic mind if your love relationships are always under stress and strain, and your children are forever rebellious and uncontrollable.

You may have a toxic mind if you are always on the verge of good health and success, but you never quite seem to be getting them.

You may have a toxic mind if you have achieved some accomplishments in your life, and yet you are forever plagued by frustration, and never quite seem to be enjoying the fruits of your success.

You may have a toxic mind if you find yourself struggling with something that you can neither identify nor understand.

You may have a toxic mind if you always feel a long, evil arm stretching from the past, trying to grip hold of you, and pulling you back from reaching your life goals and realizing your dreams.

You must detox your mind in order to increase your mind power not only to avoid cancer but also to cope with cancer if you unfortunately have the disease.

 Read my book: Congratulations! You've Got Cancer to find out how to use your mind and body not only to prevent but also to combat the disease.

Love and Marriage

The rate of divorce is skyrocketing in the United States, and the U.S. Census estimates about half of marriages end in divorce.  According to relationship experts, the number of long-term relationships heading towards separation is becoming more frequent with a longer life span and a growing acceptability of divorce. A case in point: former Vice President, who after 40 years of a seemingly happy marriage, decided to separate from his wife, and announced that they would go their own separate ways. 

So what the experts are in fact saying is that people divorce because they have a longer lifespan, and that divorce is no longer a social taboo.

But marriage is about commitment and responsibility. What our society is saying is that individuals have a right to look for something better as long as they have a breath of life in them, or to opt for something more satisfying as long as something is available to them. If that were the foundation of marriage, then why bothered to get married in the first place? Remember, marriage is not a dress that you throw away when it no longer fits you. If you find that your body has outgrown the dress, you can slim down so that you can fit into the dress again, or you can have it altered so that it can fit into you. In other words, life is about changes, and so is marriage. You just have to adapt yourself to these changes, and that makes it  challenging and interesting, and that is what marriage is all about. You don't just walk away from a marriage because you don't like it anymore. A marriage is a lifetime commitment for thick and thin, for better or for worse.

Are you finding yourself in a marriage that you want to get out of, or in a relationship that you don't like?

Only you have the answer.

However, here are some thoughts of Zen wisdom:

First of all, Zen is not an Eastern religion, but an ancient Chinese philosophy based on the wisdom of Lao Tzu, a sage and the author of the famous ancient Chinese classic "Tao Te Ching."

Life is full of problems, so do not strive to seek a solution to all the problems in life. As a matter of fact, too much striving is the source of stress, which may create more stress and therefore more problems than solutions.

Right and wrong co-exist, so do the desirable and the undesirable. In life, embrace what is pleasant, well as what is unpleasant. Just as Sosan, the Zen scholar, said: "To separate what we like from what we dislike is the disease of the mind."

True love is loving without expectations. Love is never having to use someone to make you feel better. Remember, you are who you are, and you are good enough for the one you love. 

Remember, nobody is perfect, including yourself and your spouse.

Type of Parenting for Smart Babies

Type of Parenting for Smart Babies

Smart babies come smart parents, who know how to raise and nurture smart babies. However, to be smart parents, you must know your real self.

“Knowing others is intelligence.
Knowing ourselves is true wisdom.
Overcoming others is strength.
Overcoming ourselves is true power.”
Lao Tzu, “Tao Te Ching” (chapter 33)

Lao Tzu, the ancient sage from China, rightfully said that to know one’s true self is not easy: it requires profound wisdom. Sometimes we think that we know ourselves—who we really are—but in fact we don’t. Asking probing and self-intuitive questions may help us get to the bottom of the truth about ourselves.

Who are you as a parent?

First and foremost, best parents are not infallible; nobody is perfect, and you are no exception.

Look back at your own childhood. You may have been influenced by how your parents acted towards you. There might have been positive and negative experiences. Now, your goal as a parent is to emulate the positive aspects of your parents, and to avoid repeating their mistakes.

Types of Parenting

Parenting style generally falls into three types, although there may be overlaps and variations.

Authoritative Parents

Authoritative parents often provide an environment of freedom and democracy. They set rules and regulations that their children must follow or obey. However, within these boundaries, children are encouraged to act, speak, and think independently without any restrain or restriction. Authoritative parents are always in control of their children, but they also encourage from their children’s verbal exchange and creative thinking based on different situations and circumstances.

Authoritative parents generally produce happy, smart, and self-reliant children.

Permissive Parenting

Permissive parents are generally accepting and non-punitive regarding their children’s attitudes and behaviors. In many ways, their children’s actions and reactions, as well as their desires and impulses control and determine the parent-child relationships. The only drawbacks are that these children tend to become less self-reliant and initiating.

Authoritarian Parenting

Authoritarian parents are always much in control of the behaviors of their children based on their own standards; they attempt to shape the growth and development of their children. Other than obedience, there is not much room for any compromise or even flexibility. Children under authoritarian parents are generally distrustful, discontented, and withdrawn. Worse, they often become rebellious in adolescence.

The style of parenting is based on the parents’ beliefs, values, personality, and upbringing. To make your baby smart, you need to give him an environment of safety, peace and harmony. Parenting, like marriage, is partnership; make sure that both of you are on the same page.

What type of a parent are you?

Chinese Diagnostic Approach to Disease and Healing

Chinese Diagnostic Approach to Disease and Healing

Chinese medicine, with its thousands of years of history of development through trial and error, is different from Western medicine in many respects, and one of which is its diagnostic approach to disease and healing. According to Chinese medicine, disease diagnosis is important not just from the standpoint of healing but also from the perspective of preventing disease in the future.

In traditional Chinese medicine, disease diagnosis is not about running tests on the patient, as in the case of Western medicine; instead, it is about taking and evaluating data of the patient in terms of "yin" and "yang" as well as the "deficiency" or "excess” of  "qi," which is the internal life energy coursing through the meridians connecting all the body organs. Given that Chinese medicine focuses on the balance of "yin" and "yang" Chinese healing is based on the harmony of "yin" and "yang" expressed in the Five Elements, which represent different body organs, as well as the free flow of "qi." Any blockage or stagnation of "qi" will result in "deficiency"or "excess," either of which will lead to disharmony or disease. The purpose of Chinese diagnostic approach to disease and healing is to find out not only the causes but also the underlying patterns of disharmony, thereby instrumental in promoting natural cures as well as preventing relapses in the future.

For thousands of years, in Chinese health system, disease diagnosis has been comprehensive in that it includes the environment, the social factors, and the conditions of the patient, such as food and nutrition, as well as lifestyle. Therefore, Chinese diagnostic approach to disease and healing is detailed and all-inclusive.

In Chinese medicine today, diagnosis begins with data collection through observing, asking, listening, and touching.
The first level of Chinese disease diagnosis is visual inspection and observation of shen or spirit. Shen is the spirit of the body, manifested in the consciousness, personality, intellect, and other abstract qualities. Disharmony of shen in the patient is reflected in confused or distorted thinking, heavy body motion, dull and slow response, insomnia, and other mental and psychological disorders and problems. On the other hand, good shen is revealed in good eye contact, clear skin, and healthy complexion. The presence of shen, or the lack of it, is basically a reflection of the balance or disharmony of “yin” and “yang.”

The second visual diagnosis is the examination of the colors associated with the internal organs on the surface of the skin, such as red for heart, green for liver, yellow for spleen, white for lungs, and black for kidneys. Chinese medical practitioners look for specific places to identify the colors associated with different body organs; for example, the skin under the eyes, the temples, the skin by the nose, the lips, and the forearms are strategic areas for physicians to identify colors of the patient for disease diagnosis.

The most important observation is that of the tongue. For centuries, Chinese physicians have extensively observed the size and shape (e.g. long or short; swollen or thin; cracked or smooth), the contour, the margins, and the color of the tongue to determine the presence of disease and the overall health of an individual. To illustrate, the light or heavy coating of the tongue indicates the absence or presence of body fluids (stomach fluids); if the coat is thick, the fluids are sluggish; a thick white coat is considered normal and indicative of a relative fluid balance; a blackish coat indicates internal imbalance.

The lifestyle of the patient, such as his or her appetite, diet, digestion, elimination, sweat, sleep, energy level, exercise, and sexual activity, among others, is also part of the diagnostic approach to disease and healing.

Listening and smelling are other unobtrusive methods of disease diagnosis. In listening diagnosis, the Chinese physician listens for sound of voice and quality of speech to determine the health conditions of the patient. In smelling, the physician uses body odor, or quality of breath to determine the intensity of internal imbalance of the patient.

Touching is based on the pulse of the patient--a major index of the patient's internal health. In Chinese medicine, there are twenty-eight types of pulses, according to their speed, width, length, and rhythm. The abnormalities of the pulse indicate weakness or excess of "qi" in different body organs.

In Western medicine, doctors look for one single point where disease begins, and treatment is applied to remove or suppress the symptoms associated with the disease. The Chinese diagnostic approach to disease and healing is much more comprehensive and extensive in that the diagnosis aims at finding an underlying pattern of disharmony and identifying the organ and meridian that are the culprits, thereby instrumental in designing healing strategies for the disease.

Anti-Aging Is Health Over Looks

Anti-Aging Is Health Over Looks

Anti-aging is health over looks.

The first perception of aging is the face that is full of lines and wrinkles. That is why so many people focus on plastic surgery and facelift to keep a youthful-looking face. But, at some point, the face may become irreparable, complemented by an aging body. By then, there is no other way, except acceptance.

Nicole Kidman, the Hollywood actress, once said: “You have to love your smile lines. . .you have to love your frown lines. . .” Essentially, what she meant was that you have to be brave as well as to be proud not to be like everyone else—that is, going for Botox or a facelift.

Yes, at some point in time, we all have to admit that we are getting old: our face and our body tell everything! Break the aging taboo, and endorse the marvels of aging.

People say you get smarter as you get older. But getting smarter means having healthier attitudes towards aging, and, more importantly, overcoming the fear of aging. Fear is a negative emotion, which accentuates and accelerates the aging process. Celebrate your aging, and live every day of your life to the fullest—that is healthy aging at its best.

Don’t spend the latter half of your life fighting a battle that you know you are going to lose ultimately anyway. No matter what you do, your looks will be gone forever. Instead, spend your time wisely to make yourself age healthily and gracefully. At some point in your life, you will realize that taking care of your health is the most important thing—much more than taking care of your looks. Why don’t you take that responsibility right now? Forget about your looks! Focus on your health, instead of on your looks, to stop the aging process!

Get the gifts of life: joy, health, and longevity!

The Wisdom of Ancient Health and Healing Systems

The Wisdom of Ancient Health and Healing Systems

Wisdom is the ability to gather, process, and interpret information so as to make wise choices in actions that will ultimately transform the body and the mind. Wisdom does not come from above; it has to be acquired. Therefore, empower yourself with the wisdom on natural self-healing.

The wisdom of some of the ancient health and healing systems manifests the importance of well-being and the power of natural healing:

1. Hippocrates (born around 450 B.C.) was the Father of Medicine. His Greek medical system was based on moderation for a balanced lifestyle in harmony with nature for natural healing. Hippocrates once said: "A wise man ought to realize that health is his most valuable possession, and learn how to treat his illnesses by his own judgment." So pay attention to what your body is telling you; your body symptoms often reflect internal disharmony, or indicate the imminence of disease. Nobody knows your own body's constitution better than yourself—not even your doctors or medical professionals.

2.  The Tibetan health system came under the influence of Buddha, and Tibetan monks practiced compassion and mindfulness, which comprise the essence of mental and emotional wellness requisite for natural self-healing. Remember, healing begins with the mind first, not the body; it is always mind over matter. Tibetan medicine also emphasizes virtuous conduct, a healthy diet, regular daily activity and seasonal routines to promote all-round health and natural healing. Furthermore, the Tibetan medical system heavily relies on herbal cures for natural healing.

For more information on Tibetan natural healing, go to: The Five Tibetan Rites.

3. The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) also embraces an extensive herbal medicine. More importantly, for thousands of years, Chinese doctors have believed that "qi" (internal life energy) flows throughout the body by way of channels or meridians. This internal life force is capable of continuous circulation provided there is balance between opposite forces of "yin" and "yang" which are energies of the universe, expressed in the Five Elements (the Earth, the Water, the Metal, the Fire, the Wood). Imbalance results in stagnation or blockage of "qi", which is the cause of disease.

For more information on Chinese healing, visit my web sites: Chinese Natural Healing.

4. The Ayurveda system in India is the "science of life" that has been practiced for thousands of years. This medical system advocates all inclusiveness for natural healing. Essentially, any doctrinal or ideological imperative must defer to the well-being of the patient. In other words, Ayurveda not only eliminates the process of disease but also restores the health of the patient to its original physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Get  more information,on Ayurvedic Treatments.

The major difference between the wisdom of these long-standing health systems and that of modern Western medicine is that the former has a holistic approach to health, focusing on the prevention and the natural self-healing of disease, while the latter emphasizes the cure and the removal of disease symptoms. Today's medical doctors tend to specialize in exquisitely narrow fields of anatomic and physiologic expertise that they have little time to observe the general wellness of their patients. But the wisdom of healing is to make whole of your health and wellness.

Inner Beauty

If you are a woman, you would want to be beautiful, youthful, and forever young, even though you're now a mother..

What is beauty? Is beauty only skin deep, or something only in the beholder’s eye?

In the Orient, the perception of beauty may vary from that in the West: the focus in the East on inner beauty or the "inner eye" may sometimes seem difficult for the Western mind to comprehend.

The traditional Oriental perception of beauty may have the following inner innate qualities:

1. Compassion for others

2. Detachment from negative thoughts and feelings

3. Peace of mind and inner tranquility

4. Right-mindedness from a true heart

A truly beautiful woman has a serene face with a softening spirit. Such a face is often a reflection of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual aspects of that individual. Beauty is more than skin deep: it exudes inner confidence and radiance.

You may become aware of the first click of your biological clock around age 30, when your first streaks of silver appear on your hair, or around 35 when you first notice your crow’s feet (for some, this may have happened much sooner). Can you turn back the biological clock?

According to Phyllis R. Koch-Sheras, clinical psychologist and professor at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, understanding the changes and learning how to accept and cope with them are anti-aging strategies.

Complement your inner beauty with your extrinsic beauty. Nature has given you a lovely face: take good care of it and preserve it diligently with daily facial regimens to make you forever look the best of your age.

Your skin is your beauty. The youthful look of a person is primarily based on the skin of that individual. After all, the first impression of a person is the face: the skin color, the skin texture, and the feel and touch of the skin. Your skin renews itself every 35 to 45 days. Do not interrupt or slow down that skin cell replication process with alcohol or nicotine. Get right and get enough sleep. Above all, do everything you can to maintain its color, texture, and softness. Makeup only masks the defects.

Naturally Skinsational: It provides natural skincare recipes to keep your skin youthful and healthy. It saves you a lot of money on cosmetics that don't work.
