Going a little deeper into Chinese Diagnosis- there is a principle called “Jing” that we have talked about a little.
Jing is what we in the modern age would call Genetics. The Chinese also referred to Jing as Essence. It is basically the strengths and weaknesses you inherited from your parents. But it is more than that. It is also the amount of energy you were born with. Once that energy runs out, you pass on.
The more Jing you are born with, the more you can get away with and still be healthy. This is why some people seem to be able to do whatever they want and get away with it, while others take care of themselves very well but suffer for it when they cheat in the least little bit. Genetics.
It is impossible to create more Jing. Once you use your Jing up, it is gone. If your Jing is low, the strategy is to build up your every day energy from the foods you eat and the air you breath to make up for your Jing deficiency. There are acupuncture points and herbal formulas to do exactly that.
Prevention is much more practical though, as Jing Deficiency is hard to correct.
Hope this helps,
