									 “Perfect Health Longevity” as
 Taught in Buddhism, Taoism,
Naturopathy and Modern Science

              William Bodri


1. Modern Scientific Theories of Aging
2. Shakyamuni Buddha‟s 10 Methods of Anti-
  Aging Longevity Practice
3. Taoist Super Life Extension Techniques
4. 13 Simple Modern Steps for Perfect Health
  and Maximum Longevity
Modern Scientific Theories of
• Free radicals and oxidative damage - longevity is inversely
  proportional to oxidative damage and directly proportional to antioxidant
  defense activity; by-products of metabolism are highly reactive
  molecules that damage cells (poor diet, lifestyle, drugs, smoking, toxins,
  etc. also increase free radical damage whereas taking antioxidants and a
  better diet counters free radicals and aging)
• Waste accumulation (Membrane theory) - metabolism waste products
  accumulate inside cells, producing toxic conditions, because membranes
  become less permeable over time (ex. skin lipofuscin age spots are the
  “ashes of metabolic fires”) so detoxify the body cells and organs and
  provide fresh essential oils to keep membranes permeable
• Neuroendocrine theories - failure of hormone regulatory mechanisms
  (especially hypothalamus which controls various hormone chain
  reactions) causes homeostatic imbalance (temperature, blood sugar,
  internal environment) and death; cortisol (the “stress hormone”) is a
  main culprit so take up meditation to counter stress ... Hormone
  replacement therapy
• Immunological theories - your lifespan is related to presence of
  particular immune-system substances (also affecting the neuroendocrine
  system, thymus) that decline over time so boost your immune system
• DNA damage and repair - DNA repair efficiency is correlated with life
  span, and repair mechanisms decline over time (ex. Eat RNA rich foods
  such as green powders since it improved cellular repair processes)
• Altered proteins - as aging occurs, proteins hook together and change
  shape so they can‟t do their jobs properly; cumulative errors over time
  cause an organism to vary so much from its original design that it falls
  apart; (Glycosylation “cross linking” of glucose with proteins increases
  as immune system fails, such as in cataract formation and diabetes.
  Membranes become less pliable and tissue lose their function.
  Glycosylation can be seen when apples cut in half turn yellow, brown
  and become tough. So cut down on sugar consumption and exercise.)
• Selective Death - Apotosis - programmed suicide of cells caused by
  extracellular signals; Phagocytosis - cells have membrane proteins that
  mark them for destruction by other cells (macrophages)
• Gene theories - changes in gene expression mechanisms, such as the
  order of expression, cause aging and death (ex. Telomerases shorten as
  cells divide so over time cells cannot duplicate themselves correctly,
  Hayflick limit suggests cells planned obsolescence in that cells can only
  divide around 50 times but calorie restriction increases lifespan while
  overfed cells divide faster - so don‟t overeat and avoid overweight.)
• Mutation Accumulation - over time mutations alter genetic information
  so cell doesn‟t operate properly (error catastrophes increase faulty
  transcription, faulty gene activation repression mechanisms result in
  unnecessary proteins, DNA repairs not perfect and flawed molecules
  accumulate over time)
• Wear and Tear (Cellular abuse) - ordinary daily insults/injuries and
  toxins in diet and environment wear down cells and organs so improve
  nutrition (nutrient bath), assimilation, circulation and excretion to help
  improve the repair process
• Metabolic theories - longevity is inversely proportional to metabolic
  rate; we are born with a limited amount of energy so don‟t hasten energy
  consumption but calm your breathing (ex. hummingbird)
Shakyamuni Buddha’s Ten
Methods of Super Longevity
                 The Surangama Sutra
Buddha‟s Surangama Sutra lecture on longevity
 – You can cultivate longevity, but it‟s always involved with spiritual
   cultivation, i.e. it‟s a product of meditation!
  Examples: Methuselah (Bible), Peng Tsu (China), Sri Sureswaracharya
  (India), Nagarjuna to Nagabodhi to Vajrabodhi (Esoteric Buddhism) ...
  Today scientists are pursuing a chemical and genetic means to extend life.
  They overlook the fact that all these people were strongly connected to a
  tradition of spiritual practice (meditation, cultivation), and it is this spiritual
  practice that played the major role in their longevity. If you neglect this aspect of
  cultivating the spirit, any attempts at life extension are sure to be failures.

– What‟s the use of immortality? Shakyamuni said it‟s not the right
  way. These guys leave the world, so they‟re not practicing to enjoy
  the world more. They‟re actually just afraid of death (Zen goes
  beyond birth and death). On the other hand, he did order 4 students
  to physically stay in the world without dying.
In the Surangama Sutra, Shakyamuni
Buddha Instructed Ananda as follows:

      There are people who do not cultivate samadhi
      [a meditative state of concentration or “empty
      mind”] correctly, but cultivate in some special
      way that is based on strongly holding onto false
      thoughts. As a result, they can perpetuate their
      physical bodies and roam in the mountains,
      forests and in other places where people do not
      go. There are ten kinds of such immortals.
    1. Some of these practitioners with unflagging resolution
    cultivate through eating special foods and perfecting the diet
    of what they eat. When they have perfected this method of
    cultivation, they are known as earth-bound immortals.

• Eat in such a way as to attain and maintain health. This is
  encapsulated in the Chinese practice of eating particular foods for
  curative effects. For example, there is the custom of eating special
  foods in the winter months to nourish the body. All of these customs
  originated from the Taoist idea of “earth primal drugs.” Chinese
  medicine has all sorts of such foods.
• For longevity, a few simple diet rules:
   – Few grains, little sugar, don‟t eat to fullness, eat different colored foods
      and foods in season, organic, avoid extremes, ...
• Metabolic Typing diet to determine diet makeup (carbs, protein, fats)
• Avoid food allergies and sensitivities (repair intestine and HCL digestive
• Cultivating the Earth (and Wood) elements
                       The 5 Elements
                       FIRE: Kundalini (bodily warmth)

WIND: Breath, chi                                            EARTH: Bones,
(prana, life energy)                                         teeth, nails,
                                                             sinews, muscles

WATER: Blood,
                                                         SPACE: Interstitial
water, hormones,
                                                         spaces, joint gaps,
jing, lymph, ...
                                                         hollow spaces

The 3 Doshas: VATA=Air + Space, PITTA=Fire + Water, KAPHA=Water + Earth
  Cultivating the 5 Elements of the
  Human Body -- You Cultivate ...

Wind (chi or prana) element through breathing
Water (hormones, mai) element gets transformed
Fire element (kundalini, tumo heat, incendium amoris,
  fire of separation) becomes activated/ignited from friction ...
  Oil (Water) plus Wind (Air) feed fire
Earth element over time becomes transformed
Space element is the last to become transformed
  Advanced Sequences of Physical
  Transformation from Cultivation

After 1 year - Chi becomes transformed
After 2 years - Blood becomes transformed
After 3 years - Mai (energy meridians, vessels)
After 4 years - Flesh, Muscles
After 5 years - Bone marrow
After 6 years - Sinews and tendons
After 7 years - Bones
After 8 years - Hair (and nails)
After 9 years - Entire bodily shape or form

  2. Some of these practitioners with unflagging resolution ingest
  special grasses and medicinal herbs to preserve their bodies
  and live a long life. When they have perfected this method of
  cultivation, they are known as flying immortals.

• Supplementing with the Wood element
• Ayurveda - “the science of longevity” (not just lifespan but
quality of life) says mind and body must be in harmony; the
individual cosmos must be in harmony with the external universe.
Indian Rasayana (“the path of juice”) focuses on rejuvenation therapies
to replenish bodily fluids, in particular ojas or hormonal essences lost
with aging. Kaya-kalpa (“bodily transformation”) is rejuvenation
• TCM - Traditional Chinese Medicine has scores of plants and herbs
to aid with longevity, some of which target the organs, hormones, chi or
chi mai (acupuncture meridians) - mulberry                         Etc.
• Green powders (ProGreens, Greens+,…)
   Soma - The Immortality Herb
     Their host left and returned in a moment with herbs and creepers,
which they examined carefully. The leaves on the creepers had red
spots on them. Dvivedi began to explain. “These creepers grow
abundantly in this locality. They are called soma-lata (soma creepers),
and there are fifteen varieties. On the day of the new moon there are
no leaves on the vines, but the next day, one leaf will appear,
increasing daily until on the full moon there are fifteen leaves, each
marked with one or more red spots. I collect these leaves and crush
them. They yield a kind of milk which I drink along with cow‟s milk.
The juice of soma-lata will enable anyone to live for thousands of
years. If I select the round-shaped leaves, I can live for ten-thousand
years. This is the secret of my longevity. I spend most of my time
performing tapas, and I enjoy solitude, so I have selected this remote
cave in which to live. That is all of my story.” -- Maharaj, p. 51

• Properties: antioxidant (the only one that significantly protects
  chromosomes from oxidative damage), binds heavy metals,
  neurotransmitter, speeds wound healing, helps muscle fatigue,
  improves appearance, anti-glycosylation agent (protects
  against cross-linking of proteins), protects neural tissue
  against dementia (inhibits amyloid plaque characteristic of
  Alzheimer‟s disease and neutralizes particular brain free
  radicals), radioprotective, delays cellular aging, provokes
3. Some of these practitioners with unflagging resolution ingest
special minerals and stones to preserve their bodies and live long
lives. When they have perfected this method of alchemy, they are
known as roaming immortals.

• Cultivating the Metal (and Earth) elements
• “Most mineral substances are irritating in nature and act like vitamins
… they promote a tonifying yang reaction that promotes sexual desires
(you must cut down on meat and sexual desire (food and sex) … before
being able to use them for transformation). … The Taoists who
subscribed to these views therefore refined mineral drugs such as
mercury (cinnabar), arsenic, sulfur, and other toxic metals and
congealed them into alchemical pills through chemical processes,
and ingested them in the hope of becoming immortals. This also
served to kill bacteria so as to exterminate the „Three P‟eng.‟ This
medical theory did appear more than two thousand years ago in an
age without the slightest influence of modern science.” -- The Story of
Chinese Taoism,
WHY? ...

If all of the physiological functions of the human body could be
transformed into the nature of gold and silver, naturally one
could then live a long time. Consequently, Taoists researched the
chemical properties of mineral drugs, and made copper and iron into
gold (most of the so-called gold of the Ch‟in and Han dynasties was
copper ore and there was actually very little real gold. It was thus
necessary to manufacture these materials chemically and as a result
China‟s alchemy witnessed the earliest inventions of smelting
technology in the history of world science. Later this technology was
transmitted to Europe by Arabs). They also utilized the components
of certain natural plants to transform pure gold into liquid form, and
then to gradually ingest it so that it could be slowly absorbed into the
body. After a long period of time, this would change all of the
physiological functions into the nature of gold, and then one
could naturally become immortal.
  Siddha Medicine for Immortality
Kaya-karpam is a drug in Siddha medicine that has the power of
  rejuvenating the body and prolonging life. The kaya-karpam treatment
  consists in the following steps:
1. Preservation of vital energy by influencing internal secretions and
   blood circulation through controlled breathing and Yoga practice
2. Conservation of male semen and female secretion, to use it in
   regenerating processes [discipline of not losing your jing]
3. Use of a “universal” salt known as muppu, prepared by special
   processes to induce rejuvenation
4. Use of (calcinated) powders prepared from metals and minerals such
   as mercury, sulphur, gold, mica, copper, iron, etc. [considered “risky”]
5. Use of drugs prepared by herbs [safest method]
                          -- The Siddha Quest for Immortality, p. 81
     Mercury and Gold Preparations
Tibetan doctor Khenpo Troru Tsenam at the Lhasa Astro-Medical
Institute (Mentsikhang): “This method of detoxifying mercury is
different from the method of Indian ayurveda. The method is from the
revelation of Urgyenpa, the great siddhi and Kagyu master. You need
mercury, gold, silver, copper and iron to make. It takes one hundred
people working constantly for one month to make it. At the start of the
process, the mercury is at first poisonous, shiny, mobile, liquidy. By the
end of the process it has been transformed and is medicinal, matt black
immobile and solid.”
      Oriental Medicine: An Illustrated Guide … - Jan Van Alphen
      Alchemy and Metallic Medicines in Ayurveda - Vaidya Bhagwan Dash

Real Taoism: “As to the five special minerals and eight precious stones,
yes they‟re good but I know that the dharma is emptiness. If I want to
become an immortal, why should I use external herbs? There‟s much
better ways. I can actually produce this wonderful medicine (ambrosia)
life essence in my own body.”

• Most people are deficient in Trace elements
• Iron (anemia), calcium/magnesium, selenium, ...
• Osteoprime (Enzymatic Formula) for bone building
• Colloidal minerals (
   – gold, silver, copper, selenium, …
• Elyte balanced electrolyte solution (mineral salts in a
  balanced formula - sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium)
• Trace Mineral Research tablets
• Kenshin Kelp tablets, Advacal, ...
  4. Some of these practitioners with unflagging resolution cultivate
  themselves by mastering their breath [they master certain
  pranayama techniques]. When they have perfected their chi and
  jing, they are known as immaterial [space] immortals.

• Cultivating the Wind element (one‟s prana, chi or life force)
• Hatha Yoga Pradipika has many pranayama techniques (anapana, qi-
• See the 9-bottled wind practice in Twenty-Five Doors to Meditation: A
Handbook for Entering Samadhi
• The breathing methods of the Tao school which “spit out the old to
bring in the new” are like using a match to ignite the potential energy
in one‟s body (kundalini)
• After you open up the chi mai … you can fast by “eating air”
           Pranayama Methods
                 Anapana, qi-gong, kumbhaka, ...

                                Alternating between both nostrils,
                                Draw in as much air as possible,
                                as slowly as possible,
                                into your lungs as deeply as possible,
                                and hold it inside for as long as
                                using as little force as possible,
                                and then exhale as quickly as

Patanjali - “pranayama is the gap between your in-breath and out-breath”
        Hatha Yoga Pradipika
“Therefore pranayama should be done daily with a
sattvic state of mind so that the impurities are
driven out of sushumna nadi [the central chi
channel] and purification occurs.
... By proper practice of pranayama, all diseases
are eradicated. Through improper practice all
disease can arise
... According to some teachers, pranayama alone
removes impurities and therefore they hold
pranayama in esteem and not the other
5. Some of these practitioners with unflagging resolution cultivate
their saliva [the “sweet dew” pituitary hormone that descends from
the brain] and perfect the way of internal lubrication. When they have
perfected this method, they are known as heavenly immortals.

•   Cultivating the Water element (hormones)
•   Fountain of youth, grail wine, ambrosia, amrita, …
•   The state of Ching-an (lightness and peace, pliancy)
•   This is the real Baptism, real Water empowerment
•   Modern Hormone therapy - longevity hormones
    – Hgh, DHEA, Progesterone, Estrogen, Testosterone
    – No hormone works in isolation, you cannot balance them on your own,
      measure the salivary non-protein bound form rather than blood levels (so
      most doctors overdose), transdermal delivery rather than oral, natural
      rather than Provera
• Urine therapy (minerals, steroids, …)
The Pre-Samadhi State of Ching-an
• Hatha Yoga Pradipika: “The yogi who drinks the pure stream of nectar is
   freed from disease, has longevity, and has a body as soft and as beautiful as a
   lotus stem.”
• Tsan Tung chi (Triplex Unity)
  The sweet nectar [pituitary hormone] moistened their skin and flesh
  Their tendons and bones became soft and strong
  They expelled all the internal toxins from the body
  And constantly preserved their true energy
  Having accumulated these effects over a long time
  Their bodies were transformed and they became immortals
• Wu-jen pien (Understanding Reality)
  Everyone originally has the medicine of immortality within
  However,they have lost their understanding and thrown it away
  When the sweet dew [hormone] descends, sky and earth will be joined …
  When the elixir is mature, gold will naturally fill the room
  Why need to look for herbs or burn reeds [praying to heaven for immortality]?
All Genuine Spiritual Schools Recognize this
      Hormone’s Rejuvenating Effects
                                    Enclose the old man and the tree in a
                                      house of dew, and eating of its fruit he
                                      will be made young.

                                    In the garden of Wisdom stands a tree,
                                        which produces gold apples,
                                    You should take this tree, with our old man;
                                    Let them be locked up in a glass house, wet
                                        with dew,
                                    And let them stay there together for many
                                    Then, o wonder, he will eat his fill from the
                                        tree‟s fruit,
                                    So that he, who was formerly an old man,
                                        becomes young again.

Estrogen and Progesterone
              Estrogen and Progesterone -- John R. Lee, MD Medical Letter

• Estrogen levels drop by 40-60% by menopause, but progesterone
  levels drop to near 0 in some women. So why do we supplement
  with estrogen alone? This will cause estrogen dominance (excess
  estrogen or insufficient progesterone). When the body doesn‟t
  produce insulin any longer, you give it insulin. So why, when the
  body stops producing estrogen and progesterone, you give it only
  estrogen? … the body wasn‟t designed for unopposed estrogen.
  Measure it using salivary tests, not blood serum!
• Signs and symptoms of estrogen dominance: PMS, hot flashes,
  miscarriage, infertility, breast swelling and tenderness, depression-
  headaches- irritability- memory loss, fibrocysts, uterine problems,
  water retention (bloating), fat gain, decreased libido, fatigue, blood
  clotting, hair loss, acne, thyroid problems (cold hands and feet),
  poor sleep, impairs blood sugar control ...
              Estrogen and Progesterone
• Estrogen causes cancer, does not help prevent heart attacks,
  interferes with the thyroid, turns food energy into fat (give it to
  steers), doesn‟t help osteoporosis (except around menopause, then
  5-6 years later bone loss declines at same rate)...
• Progesterone calms the mind (brain less likely to have seizures),
  treats breast fibrocysts (within 3 cycles), stimulates osteoblast bone
  building (reverses osteoporosis, +29% in density in 3 years - the
  worst the start the better the improvement), prevents miscarriages
  (luteal phase failure), protects against premature birth, corrects
  estrogen dominance … remember it’s a precursor hormone
• There‟s a great safety range for progesterone - during pregnancy a
  woman‟s body makes 350-400 mg per day and creams are 15-20
  mg/day. Premenopause: 15-25 mg/day for 14 days before menses;
  Postmenopausal: 15 mg/day for 25 days of month. Use creams
  containing 450-500 mg progesterone per ounce (1.6% by weight or
  3% by volume), 1/4 teaspoon is about 20 mg/day.
• Major federal premarin study halted (JAMA July 17, 2002).
  Taking hormones after menopause increases risk of:
   – breast cancer
   – heart attack                           Estrogen plus Progestin Pills
                                            Conditions per 10,000 women/year
   – stroke
   – blood clots
• Estrogen does NOT reduce a woman‟s risk for heart disease.
• According to a British review of 22 studies, HRT does not reduce
  fracture risk either (JAMA June 13, 2001)! Estrogen has no effect
  on bone density (Annals Intl Med Nov 21, 2000). Estrogen does
  not improve brain function.

• If ovaries are removed or there are hot flashes that don‟t respond
  to black cohosh, estrogen may be a good idea.
• Testosterone affects muscle, mood (depression), libido (sex drive),
  energy (fatigue). Ken Wilber calls it a “fuck it/kill it tool”; Women,
  when given testosterone injections, can‟t stop thinking about sex.
  (“Please, can you make this stop?”) -- A Brief History of Everything
• Estradiol antagonist … supplementation should be made relative to
  estradiol levels (estrogen dominance causes breast development and
  prostate cancer)
• Androgel for “andropause”- 1% transdermal gel containing 1 mg of
  testerone per gram of gel. Transdermal doses, from from saliva
  testing, should be about 1-2 mg for men (.25-.5 mg for women)
• Personally, I don‟t recommend it. Hormone balancing is near
  impossible; what is right for one person is wrong for another.
  However, salivary measurement is proper, you should use
  bioidentical hormones, focus on hormone ratios, don‟t fuse the
  appetite for sex with the appetite for aggression/violence.
Hormone Biochemical
 6. Some of these practitioners with unflagging resolution make
 themselves strong by absorbing the essence of the sun and moon.
 When they have perfected the inhalation of this purity, they are
 known as [unimpeded] penetrating immortals.

• Cultivating absorption of Light (energy from nature)
• The essence of sun and moon refers to pure energies of yin and yang
  (left-right mai). You don‟t visualize these energies but gaze at the
  sun, moon and stars to absorb their essences. The method requires
  special conditions of time and place.

• Insects and animals (clams) cultivate this method in the wild
• Yuyi Jielin Jing (Sacred Scripture of the Sun and Moon): “make the
  light of the sun and moon embrace his or her entire person, reaching
  within as far as the corners of the stomach and giving him the
  feeling of being completely illuminated within and without … the
  whole body becomes luminous and shines brightly.”
7. Some of these practitioners with unflagging resolution use
mantras and special dharma techniques to preserve their
bodies. When they have perfected this means of cultivation, they
are known as immortals of the lesser way.

• Special mantras to preserve their bodies (India, China, Tibet)
• Special ceremonies (Indian yagya, Medicine Buddha mantra, ...)
• Taoist sect of Worship and Prayer - The idea is to unify the spirit and
will through devotional sincerity to affect changes of the spirit, psyche
and soul (shen, mind, chi). The exact methods are not revealed. “The
incantations of shamans of high antiquity, as well as the „supplications‟
passed down from the time of the Yellow Emperor, were based on this
profound learning, and although it later evolved into religious rites, yet
the basis was still related to the function of the psyche of spiritual life and
the soul.” [In other words, transformations of jing, chi and shen.] -- The

8. Some of these practitioners with unflagging resolution master
mental concentration and perfect the way of meditation to
preserve their bodies. When they have perfected their method of
mental concentration, they are known as illuminating immortals.

   9. Some of these practitioners with unflagging resolution cultivate
   through sexual union to preserve their bodies and live a long life.
   When they have perfected this method of cultivation to achieve
   harmonization, they are known as jing [sexual energy] immortals.

• Cultivating jing and chi (Water and Wind elements) - the Sexual
  Cultivation sect considers that the internal secretions (hormones) of
  both sexes possess life-prolonging effects, and when practiced
  within normal married life without confusion or dissipation, through
  sexual activities one can realize a sublime spirit and prolonged life.
  This school promotes such practices as “internal insight and
  refinement of seminal energy (jing)” “long life through prolonged
• Cultivating hormones, chi and chi mai
• Rules: don‟t catch cold, pleasure but non-ejaculation
• Rest on the “sweet spot” for chi communication
                  Sexual Cultivation
• “Slow foreplay is important every time a man lies with a woman so
  that the two spirits will be in harmony. Only after the two spirits are
  perfectly moved for a long time should the couple unite. The man
  should enter the woman when the penis is soft and pull it back out
  when it becomes firm and strong. He should penetrate only without
  ejaculating. He can have intercourse many times in a single day
  without letting his essence leak will increase his lifespan and heal
  himself of all disease.” -- Twenty-Five Doors to Meditation, Bodri, p. 97
• “Su Nu: „When a couple practise the Tao of Loving correctly the male
  will remain healthy and youthful and the female will avoid a hundred
  diseases. Both will enjoy it thoroughly and at the same time increase
  their physical strength. But if they do not know how to practise it
  correctly then love-making can be harmful to their health. … A
  good guideline is when the female is completely satisfied and the male
  is not yet exhausted.” -- The Tao of Love and Sex, Chang, p. 89
• “The generative force is the most precious thing for the human body
  that contains it lives and the body without it dies; because it nourishes
  and preserves the root of (essential) nature and (eternal) life. No
  worldly men know how to produce and purify it. If it is exhausted it
  should be restored by the reproducing process; this is called restoring
  the generative force to invigorate the brain. … Vitality is basically
  adequate in the human body but dissipates because of sexual
  indulgence; hence its deficiency.” -- Taoist Yoga, Yu, pp. 33-34
• Huang Ti: “I have heard that men of the great antiquity lived over 200
  years and men of the middle antiquity lived up to 120 years. But men
  of our time often die before they reach the age of 30. So few men are
  relaxed and at peace with themselves these days and so many of them
  are suffering from diseases. What do you think is the reason for this?”
  Su Nu: “[the reason] men often die young today is that they do not
  know the secret of the Tao. They are young and passionate and they
  emit their ching indiscriminately when they love. It is like cutting
  off the roots and the fountain of their lives … How can they expect to
  live long?” -- The Tao of Love and Sex, Chang, pp. 92-93

         “The sexual fluid is the source of health, longevity, and
endurance. Though I am an old man, because of the retention of
sexual fluid I feel very young inside. Sexual fluid is your glow,
your vigor, your radiance, and your contentment. It also gives
strength to your prana and gives force to your meditation. It
is the force of the sexual fluid which powers one’s meditation.
If you were to hold it inside, it would give you tremendous
energy and make you much more attractive. As a person
conserves the sexual fluid, it begins to move upward in the body.
Then he gains tremendous power. Just as you save some of your
earnings in the bank, you should save some of your sexual
fluid.” - I Have Become Alive, Muktananda, p. 93
        NAPOLEON HILL ...

       “I discovered, from the analysis of over 25,000 people, that
men who succeed in an outstanding way, seldom do so before the
age of forty, and more often they do not strike their real pace until
they are well beyond the age of fifty. This fact was so astounding
that it prompted me to go into the study of its cause most carefully.
       This study disclosed the fact that the major reason why the
majority of men who succeed do not begin to do so before the age
of forty to fifty, is their tendency to dissipate their energies
through over-indulgence in physical expression of the emotion
of sex. The majority of men never learn that the urge of sex has
other possibilities, which far transcend in importance that of mere
physical expression. The majority of those who make this
discovery, do so after having wasted many years at a period when
the sex energy is at its height, prior to the age of forty-five to fifty.
This usually is followed by noteworthy achievement.” -- Think and
Grow Rich, pp. 165-166
 Recovering Jing - The Horse Story
      [Talking about a horse that would try to move his back out from under
riders as if they were causing him pain] ... “It is obvious that he lacks
marrow in the bones of his back. Since the Marrow Tissue is the foundation
of Shukra he must have a deficiency of sperms, which has kept his vitality
low. …I can cure him with just two doses of medicine. All you have to do
after I dose him is feed him the soup made from one dozen goat thigh bones,
and I can guarantee you a cure.”
      “Dr. Saheb,” said Vimalananda smoothly, “horses have no gall
bladders, and feeding him something as fatty as marrow soup will give him
colic that will kill him.”
      “Don‟t worry yourself in the least,” replied the ever theatrical Dr.
Martand. “I guarantee that no harm will come to him.” … [While they
expected calamity, no complications were experienced and he improved
weekly. The goat marrow had presumably filled his bones.] -- Aghora III, p.
       Common Sexual Deviations
• “Gathering and supplementing techniques” (gathering yin to
supplement yang or gathering yang to supplement yin), “collecting
human placentas”, the ingestion of cinnabar and lead (draining and
ingesting the blood of young male and female children) are all
horrible deviations. Rest is actually the secret of immortality for this
is where the life force comes from … from the extreme of yin arises
• Most people confuse semen with jing and try to steal jing and chi
from a sexual partner like a vampire (i.e. foxes), but once out of the
body it‟s like spit, piss, phlegm or pus.
• Modern books: non-ejaculatory yoga that tries to spiritualize lust
• Crazy movies with all sorts of deviations - no chi communication

• Vedic Astrology (Suryanarain Rao‟s Astrological Primer):
    If birth ascendant is Cancer with Moon and Jupiter, Venus and Mercury are in
       quadrants and evil planets are in houses 3, 6 and 11, the person lives for a
       thousand years.
    If birth ascendant is Leo with Jupiter there, Venus in Cancer, Mercury in Virgo and
       the rest of the planets in houses 3,6 and 11, he lives for 1000 years.
    If birth ascendant is Aries, Sun in Cancer, Saturn in Capricorn, Mars in Libra and
       powerful Moon in Pisces, he lives for 2000 years.
    No evil planets in trines, no good planets on quadrants, and no malefics in 8 will give
      a very long life.
    Jupiter, Saturn, Mars and Venus in quadrants to each other gives long life.

       Siddhi Theory and Taoism
The astronomical/astrological influences, especially the phases of the
moon, have a strong effect on the subtle body (your chi) ... which in
turn governs the rhythms, cycles and activity of the physical body.
Therefore all Indian sadhana, which are practices in order to develop
siddhi, prescribe exact times and periods of the month for their
practice. Traditionally the sunrise, sunset, midnight and midday are
most important, as are the 14th and 8th days of the dark fortnight.
However, there are special sadhanas for each of the tithis (lunar
days). The fifth day after the menses of the yogini is considered
especially potent for the maithuna sadhana.

The Sage takes his signs from the movements of Heaven and Earth;
who knows his principles? He accords with the Tao of yin and yang,
and follows their seasonal activity. He follows the cycles of fullness
and emptiness of Heaven and Earth, taking them as his constant.

10. Match yourself with Earthly and Cosmic transformations
          Shakyamuni concluded:
These people all regulate their minds, but do not cultivate the
right bodhi [prajna wisdom, the enlightened mind]. They cultivate
some special principle of life and can live for thousands, or tens of
thousands of years. They retire deep into the mountains, or live on
deserted islands in the sea and cut themselves off from the human
realm. However, their states of attainment still belong to the
realm of false thinking rather than to genuine samadhi. When
the longevity of life which is their reward is finished, they are
condemned to return again to the lower planes of existence.

  Taoist Super Life Extension
(Longevity and “Immortality”)
                     Taoist Beliefs
The Taoists believed that human wisdom could make up for the
shortcomings of Heaven and Earth. They believed that the human
body, as a physical organism, had an unlimited potential and that if
a person learned how to tap into this potential, they could act as an
active participant and supplement the shortcomings of Heaven and
earth to transform their bodies and live forever.

The inherent idea of the Taoists is that Heaven and Earth, in their
regularity, last forever and the human being can cultivate a
similar longevity that lasts forever as well (to match the longevity
of celestial bodies). Since human beings could control Heaven and
Earth by managing the laws of nature, an individual could learn how
to control his own life, including its longevity, so as to reach a state
were they were not subject to the laws of nature. All this was to
be accomplished through the cultivation of his being and wisdom.

  you won‟t think of sex          jing, you will never experience

                                  chi, you will never experience
• When your shen is full you      the stage of internal light
  won‟t feel like sleeping
                                • If you don‟t accumulate your

      The Pure Cultivation Sect
You leave the secular life, avoid worldly affairs and become
pure by cultivating the spirit and chi, eliminating desires and
cutting off ties, and refining body and mind so as to attain a
state of purity, quietude, non-action, and emptiness. Using
the effects of the highest quietude, you only seek
accumulation and do not become involved any form of
dissipation. You ignite the potential energy in your own body
such as by opening the eight extra meridians including the
conception and governing meridians, then realize fixing the
spirit and accumulating chi, develop the marvelous function
in life, and create a new life freely and independently. This
is the Pure Cultivation Sect spoken of by the later Taoist
School, and it is also called the Single Cultivation Sect.
The Tao School “Immortal”
     God of Longevity
   (1) The intestines have become empty and
   (2) The chi channels have all completely
      opened through, including to the bottom of
      the feet from meditation
   (3) The chi and hormones have reached a state
      of fullness and equilibrium from cultivation
   (4) They have achieved a stable level of one-
      pointed concentration (samadhi)
   (5) Their merit is sufficient (cultivating virtue and
      performing 3000 good deeds)
Tao school said:
  Tap into the inherent basis for life and supplement it
    Merit + Meditation + Method + Time = Result

Even Taoism relied on internal and external
 substances, human and heavenly assistance

                    1. Air - Oxygen
• You can‟t live without oxygen, so clean air is your #1 priority.
• Dr. Otto Warburg: cancer cannot grow in a high oxygen
  environment; Dr. Stephen Levine: oxygen deficiency causes disease
• The air is filled with pollutants that add to our toxic load. These
  substances have to be detoxified or better yet, removed at the start
  so you don‟t inhale them. Breath through a face mask to see the
  difference or watch a lung autopsy to see how they collect in the
  lungs. Few medicines can help once they‟re lodged inside. Air
  bubbles trapped in fossils show 35% oxygen content vs. 20% today.
• Allergies, asthma, emphysema, environmental sensitivities ...
• Studies repeatedly show that the air inside our houses is more
  polluted than the air outside so keep your windows open. Also,
  outgas new furniture and carpets when you buy them.

Meditation + Breathing Methods

              • Pranayama Practice - expands
              the lung capacity, produces mental
              clarity, cultivates your chi (the
              breath of life), poets did it!
              • The arising of real chi (kundalini)
              is when the breath stops. This is
              called tai hsi in Chinese. You
              practice holding your breath to
              activate this prenatal chi that comes
              along with life. If you can
              ignite/activate it, you can clean your
              chi channels and prolong your life.
       Miscellaneous Encounters
                   Oxygen for healing

• All sorts of healing therapies depend upon
  increasing circulation (nattokinase, Adaptrin,

• Your body is 70% water, and you need about 8 glasses/day, not
  including coffee, tea, milk, juice, soda, …
• Fereyoon Batmanghelidj - world‟s expert on water
• Distilled water - “dead” water that lacks minerals
• Bottled water - usually contains plastics (xenoestrogens)
• Tap water - flouride, chlorine, heavy metals, chemicals …
  should be filtered before drinking … you absorb more chlorine
  through a shower than by drinking water since your skin is a sieve
• Epidemiological and in vivo studies suggest you want water high
  is dissolved solids, slightly alkaline (pH > 7) and hard
• Acid/Alkaline - drink slightly alkaline water (Japanese
  hospitals), wash with slightly acidic
                How to Filter Water
• Chlorine easy to remove through carbon/charcoal filters and KDF
• Flouride difficult to remove except through distillation, reverse
  osmosis or activated alumina
• Small faucet filters are usually useless since they lack a sufficient
  amount of filtering material
• Showers need filters as much as tap water! Your skin is a sieve;
  your body eats whatever lands on its skin.

   – Essential oils supplement - good fats not bad fats (cod liver
     oil, fish oil omega 3‟s, olive oil, coconut oil, butter, …)
   – Perhaps a green powder (juicing) or immune supplement or
     digestive enzymes (temporarily probiotics, B12 for
         Ayurveda Theory of Taste
According to the theory of taste (rasa) every food, element, herb or
compound can be classified according to one of 6 primary tastes:
sweet, sour, saline, pungent, bitter or astringent. Combinations of
these primary either an harmonious (healthy) or inharmonious
(unhealthy) reaction in the body humors tridosha of vayu, pitta and
kapha. Thus through the apana-vayu (taste motility pathway), the
threefold materiality basis can be modified through the rasayana
(taste science) preparations, which are the “elixirs” and
“rejuvenators” of alchemical reference. According to the ayurvedic
(science of life) traditions, which were the inspiration of Greek and
Arab medical science, the three cosmic essentials of sweet, sour,
and saline pacify the vayu (space + air) humor. Sweet, bitter and
astringent pacify the pitta (fire+ water) while pungent and bitter and
astringent pacify the kapha (water + earth aggregate). Many are the
permutations of this essential relationship.
            Meditation Based on Taste
• Gavampati, a student of Shakyamuni Buddha, attained samadhi by looking into
  tasting, realizing that it was neither a subjective substance or objective thing, and
  thereby in time won enlightenment.
• The two Bodhisattvas called Bhaisajya-raja and Bhaisajya-samudgata who were
  present … rose from their seats, prostrated themselves at the feet of the Buddha and
  declared: “Since the time without beginning we have been skilful physicians in the
  world and have tasted with our own mouths herbs, plants and all kinds of mineral
  and stone found in the world, numbering 108,000 in all. As a result we know
  perfectly their tastes, whether bitter or sour, salt, insipid, sweet, acrid, etc., their
  natural, changing or harmonizing properties, and whether they are cooling, heating,
  poisonous or wholesome. We received instruction from the Tathagata and knew
  clearly that taste was neither existent nor non-existent, was neither body nor mind
  and did not exist apart from them. Since we could discern the cause of taste, we
  achieved our awakening which was sealed by the Buddha who then named us
  Bhaisajya-raja and Bhaisajya-samudgata. We are now ranked among the “sons of
  the Dharma king” in this assembly and because of our awakening by means of taste,
  we have attained the Bodhisattva stage. As the Buddha now asks about the best
  means of perfection, to us taste is the best according to our personal experience.” --

               A Rational Gameplan
• Sickness is an imbalance, so correct the biochemical (or structural)
  imbalance. You have to remove the poisons causing harm and open up
  the pathway channels of delivery and elimination
• Step 1: Stop adding to the problem (allergic foods, toxic exposure …)
• Step 2: Clean out the cesspool - fast, lose weight, empty the fat cells
  of toxins, detox, clean the organs, colonics, decrease acidosis, ...
• Step 3: Clean the pipes so things can be excreted or delivered -
  chelation, nattokinase, ginko, cayenne, breathing exercises, castor oil
  packs, massage and deep tissue bodywork
• Step 4: Increase the blood circulation and oxygen exposure -
  exercise, acupuncture (chi), lose weight, cold/hot therapy, minerals,
  massage and body work. Meditation recovers lost vitality.
• Step 5: Rebuild, strengthen, nurture health - good nutrition and
  supplements to activate, modulate, bolster the chemistry responsible
  for healing; targeted modulation (receptor sites)

• The Big 3: bacteria, viruses, fungus (molds), mycoplasma
• Eliminate food intolerances, sensitivities, allergies
• Check your home for molds - a constant immune assault!
• Take a multivitamin - multimineral supplement
• Immune 26 for general immune boosting
  (800-557-8477 Distributor Bodri #512372)
• Woebenzyme and nattokinase “roto rooting”
• Albumin blood levels near 5.0?
• To root out pockets of infections, you have to go at it using
  a number of specialized techniques. The Tao school might
  advise using a Bioelectrifier + mushrooms + colloidal
  silver along with nattokinase or Woebenzyme.
                       6. Exercise
• The results of various scientific studies show that regular
  lifelong exercise reduces mortality and increases life expectancy
  in humans, but does not extend maximum lifespan. Studies also
  show that the initiation of regular exercise in sedentary
  individuals may increase their life expectancy at any age, but
  only if it is done in a gradual and prudent manner.
• Still exercises: Yoga, Pilates, Stretching, …
• Slow moving exercises: Tai Chi, Akido, …
• Active exercise: Sports, Aerobics, Running, dancing...
• Weight-resistance training: Body for Life, Lifting, …
• “Flow,” the “zone,”” white spot,” “riding the wave,” “being
  centered,” a “peak experience” … are all a pursuit of samadhi
 Needak Rebounder (mini trampolines) - works on all
 muscles and cells. NASA says “the magnitude of the
 biochemical stimuli is greater jumping on a trampoline than
 with running”; “the external work output at equivalent
 levels of oxygen intake were significantly greater while
 trampolening than running … the greatest difference was

                   Power plates (whole body vibration
                   therapy) - you stand on mechanical
                   vibrating plates that will cause the body‟s
                   postural muscles to contract 30-50 times
                   per second. 8-10 minutes 3 times/week.
Cortisol (stress hormone) decreases while growth hormone
and testosterone (important for regeneration and repair)
increase. Muscle strength increases 20-30% more than
conventional strength training in much less time, circulation
improves, joints get stronger, reduces injuries, speeds
healing time, alleviates acute and chronic pain.
The Road of Exercise + Meditation

• Yoga without breathing practices and meditation is
  useless in terms of super longevity

• The 4-step sequence:
  Martial arts practice to soften the body (make it supple)
  Qi-gong practice that focuses on breathing
  Tao-gong practices that cultivate your chi channels
  Zen practice for enlightenment
                           7. Sleep
• Most people need at least 8.25 hours of sleep every night. This
  amount is individualistic, and quality is important. Signs of premature
  aging disappear with enough quality sleep. The more hours you sleep
  before midnight the better off you will be. Regularize your sleep
  schedule to keep your body rhythms in tune, and sleep with darkness.
• Avoid eating meals and snacks at least 2 hours before bedtime or
  you will raise your level of blood sugar and inhibit sleep (gain
  weight). Avoiding liquid for 2 hours prior reduces the likelihood of
  bathroom trips.
• Avoid caffeine at least 5-6 hours before bedtime. It delays the onset
  of sleep, makes you restless and causes early waking.
• Avoid alcohol at least 2 hours before bedtime. It may make you feel
  sleepy but it tends to disturb your sleep and make you wake up
  several hours later unable to fall back to sleep.
• Nicotine (smoking) tends to disturb your sleep.
• Don’t exercise for 3-6 hours before bedtime as it raises your body
  temperature; if you sleep in a room too hot it‟s hard to sleep as the
  decline in body temperature helps initiate sleep. Warm feet,
  however, promote the onset of sleep. Bedroom temperatures below
  54 and above 70-75 Fahrenheit are to be avoided. Taking a bath 30
  minutes before sleeping will raise your body temperature which will
  afterwards plummet to facilitate deep sleep.
• Sleep in complete darkness otherwise you change the rhythm of
  the pineal gland and the production of melatonin and seratonin.
• Write a journal, do affirmations, pray, to do lists, “close the chest of
  worries” (Napoleon‟s method) before sleeping … make it a
  ceremonial bed time routine.
• Arrange your bed for feng shui, avoid geopathic stress, check for
  EMF, avoid drafts. In short, make sure the bed position does not
  diminish your resistance and health.
• Jetlag: Try to arrive early in the evening and go to bed at 10 pm
  local time. If you need to sleep during the day, limit naptime to no
  more than 2 hours. Prepare for the trip ahead of time by slowly
  changing your schedule. Try to get out in the sunshine to stimulate
  the resetting of your body clock.
• Melatonin and L-tryptophan sleep aids.
• Nap zone: 2:00-6:00, when most driving accidents happen. When
  driving, take a midafternoon break and a break every 2 hours or 100
• People better remember new motor skills (sports, performing
  surgery, …) if they sleep immediately afterwards. Probably the
  mind starts processing it right away.
• Many people tell themselves to solve their problems while sleeping
  … alpha wave state of autosuggestion.
• Lucid dreaming
   Meditation and Sleep (Resting)
• “Beauty sleep” - If you don‟t get enough sleep it will definitely
  show on your face. You need a vacation from work and stress
  so that you can come back relaxed and rested. If you don‟t take
  a break then stress will eventually wear you down and cause a
  collapse. Resting is one of the purposes of holidays and
  celebrations. Most diseases have a tie-in with stress.
• Meditation is simply resting the mind; it‟s a form of rest!

• Lucid dreaming - control your dreams
• The clear light of sleep - realize the Tao
• Peacefulness - Resting meditation practice
           8. Meditation and Stress
• Tao and Longevity, by Nan Huai Chin
• Twenty-Five Doors to Meditation: A Handbook for Entering Samadhi
by William Bodri and Lee Shu-Mei
• Studies show meditation improves your coping ability, raises your
threshold before you feel the onset of stress, and allows greater control
over your attention
• Stress management gives people control over their lives and reactions
• Cortisol hormone - the stress hormone; caffeine intensifies the
  psychological reaction to stress
• Listening to classical music - Mozart, Vivaldi, …
• Deep breathing, Massage, Vacations
• Yoga - stretching - unwinding; exercise, even if you are old, reduces
  anxiety, stress and depression
• “So what?” therapy … “I‟m handing everything over to God, Buddha,
  Jesus, …”; Napoleon‟s method of closing his worry drawer every
• Watch a good movie, especially a comedy
• For high blood pressure - the upside down skull meditation, and the
  flames on the toes meditation
                 9. Sunshine - Light
• Light is a nutrient like food. Our eyes are an extension of our brain,
  photoreceptors that collect light energy and send signals to the brain
  that affect biochemistry. Without sunlight your body cannot produce
  the vitamin D necessary for absorbing calcium (osteoporosis).
• Daylight increases production of seratonin (“feel good” hormone)
  while darkness increases production of melatonin. Because hormone
  levels are affected by sunlight, upsetting the natural rhythm of
  sunlight exposure can send our biochemistry out of balance.
• If we are starved of light it can lead to depression, which especially
  happens in the winter months (SAD seasonal affective disorder). Take
  Cod liver oil during winter months and fish oil in the summer.
• Since life has evolved under the full spectrum of sunlight, it has
  become part of our genetic needs. We need full spectrum lighting;
  incandescent bulbs cannot produce this. Animals thrive best with this.
                           John Ott
• Without UV light, plants won‟t bloom and many fruits won‟t ripen.
  UV is very important as long as you don‟t get burned. Trace amounts
  of UV radiation in natural daylight are required for physical and
  mental health, civilized behavior, muscle strength, energy and
  learning. Low exposure to UVB increases the risk of cataracts, but this
  applies to those on Western junk food diets who do not take sufficient
  antioxidants (C, E, pycogenols, …).
• Fluorescent lights cause eye strain, headaches, depression, harmful
  radiation … change the ballast and tape the ends with lead foil.
• You need 30-60 minutes of sunlight per day without glasses/windows!
       The Curative Effects of Light
• Sunshine was a crucial part of western therapy until the discovery of
  penicillin. Blue light breaks down bilirubin. Burns (and psoriasis)
  treated with UV light. Far infrared treats pain relief. Depression -
  orange sunglasses; colorpuncture therapy; light boxes - like natural
  daylight indoors for SAD sufferers. You need it for vitamin D!
• In classrooms, children calm down and overcome learning problems
  with full spectrum lighting; in police dispatch offices stress goes
  down and fewer headaches suffered. 1500 wavelengths feed the eye.
• Sun block - your skin is a sieve so what you put on it you eat …
  drugs are delivered through skin patches. Many are carcinogenic.
                  Sunburn - Skin Cancer
• US 2002 statistics: 50% of cancers are skin cancers, 1.1 million,
  10,000 fatalities. Vegetable fats are culprits (70 lbs/year distorts the
  omega 3:6 ratio; should be 1:1 ours is 15:1, Japan is 3:1). Australian
  study shows eating fish oils helps, National Academy of Sciences
  says processed vegetable oils are a main culprit. Most melanoma
  occurs on areas covered by clothing, people with outdoor jobs have
  less risk than office workers, … paradoxes: Eskimos have wrinkles
  and 6 weeks of summer; Massai unwrinkled and 12 summer months.
• For thousand of years before sunscreen we spent time in the sun
  without trouble but we didn‟t have a stripped diet then. Eat DNA
  repair groups -- C, E, zinc, B12 and folic acid (1000 mcg) which is
  destroyed by heat, cold and light. Key rule: don‟t burn.
• In UJ, skin samples and 3 SPF of 20+ sunscreens …electron spin
  resonance spectroscopy determined free radical damaged dropped
  50% underneath the skin as compared to nonprotected .. A SPF of 2
  due to UVA free radicals, DNA damage, prompts skin cancer!
          Light Related Meditation
•   Seeing the Light - Mahakasyapa - seeing the light of mind
•   Absorbing the essence of the sun and moon
•   Visualize being filled with light when doing things
•   Internal viewing (Tao school)
•   Darkness retreats
•   See: Twenty-Five Doors to Meditation by William Bodri and
    Lee Shu-Mei for explanations and instructions behind all these
             10. Positive Thinking
• Smile and laugh - it releases chemicals in your brain that actually
  make you younger.
• Be optimistic. If you act a certain way you‟ll become a certain way.
  Cultivate yang chi instead of yin chi through your mental state.
• Always ask, “So what?” Good things can be bad things and bad
  things can be good things. Accept things realistically (Stockman
  paradox) rather than block them or deny them by putting sugar on
  top (the “thick love” crowd). You create your own fortune.
• The Ancients said: the life span of an individual is said to
  have its own pattern, but meditation can increase one's life
  span. The pattern of life includes all the activities of your life,
  therefore longevity involves life style changes. Cultivating life
  force is not a pill but a behavioral, life style change. You
  cultivate yang from yin by doing those behavioral things which
                Positive Thinking
• EFT and NLP to help change mental states and habitual mental
• Affirmations and mantra
• Merit making, charity and service - focus on others when you‟re
• Meditation is best of all.
             Negative thought => Positive thought => “Emptiness”

• Too bad modern schools don‟t teach the methods of creating
mental health and instill stress management in the curriculum
                  11. Supplements
• Everyone is deficient in vitamins and minerals, and forget the RDA
  - a RBC analysis, hair analysis, enzyme analysis tells all
• Minimal is best: Multivitamin/mineral + oils + (green powder) +
  (Immune26) + (probiotics for a short time) + (B12 for vegetarians)
   · Heart - COQ10 + magnesium + carnitine
   · Arrhythmia - taurine
   · Diabetes - alpha lipoic acid + gymnema sylvestre + chromium
   · Gallstones - Rowachol
   · Constipation - glutamine + fiber
   · High blood pressure - calcium/magnesium + fish oils
   · Reflux - diet + HCL + digestive enzymes + licorice
·   Cholesterol - homocysteine (B6, B12, folic acid, TMG), niacin …
·   Depression - electrolytes + oils + amino acids
·   Menopause - oils + progesterone
·   Hepatitis - selenium + silymarin + colloidal silver + lipoic acid
·   Gout - cherry juice
·   Infertility - detox + zinc + progesterone
·   Balding - thyroid + greens + minerals + Immune26
·   Asthma - NAC + magnesium
·   Alcohol craving - glutamine + chromium + inositol
·   Arthritis - glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM + Immune26

       12. Electromagnetic Pollution
• Electromagnetic radiation - visible light, UVB, ionizing
  radiation (X-rays, gamma rays), infrared, microwaves
• EMF (gauss) meters to measure it .5mG usual, 1 mG is
  EPA limit, 1 mG used in Sweden, most experts say 1 mG
• Living cells maintain an electrical charge across their
  membrane that‟s essential to their functioning and which
  is sensitive to electromagnetic fields. Radiation of
  unnatural frequencies or strength can disrupt this
  membrane potential, rearrange and damage molecules and
  alter metabolism through changes in hormone activity,
  synthesis of genetic material, flow of substances in and
  out of cells, etc. EMFs produce free radicals which
  accelerate the aging process.
• Radio waves upset calcium levels in the body that affect cell
  growth, reproduction and division. Mast cells double their
  histamine secretion when exposed to radiofrequency radiation.
  EMFs can depress melatonin production, elevate estrogen in
  women (cancer causing), and reduce testosterone (prostate cancer)
• Studies link EMFs with tumors, leukemia, degenerative brain
  disease, breast cancer, miscarriages, …
• US EPA study: 1990 study, 150 pages long -- EMF pollution is a
  serious threat to our health

                Prudent Avoidance
• Scan your environment with a tri-field gauss meter
• Don‟t sleep under an electric blanket whose magnetic fields
  penetrate 6-7 inches into the body or sleep in a room where power
  enters the home. Move electric clocks at least 1 meter from your
  head (they can still have 5-10 mG fields 3 meters away!), avoid
  dimmers that give off particularly strong electric fields and as to
  cell phones ... Studies link brain tumors with chronic exposure to
  electric fields
• Sit more than 3 meters from TV and move away from microwave
  ovens when in use (studies show don‟t eat the food!). Rearrange
  your office and home so you are not exposed to EMFs from the
  sides or backs of computers and appliances … don‟t put your
  computer on the other side of a wall from your bed, and have an
  anti-radiation screen on your computer
• BioElectric Shield
13. Match Yourself with Conditions

• Match yourself with the weather, seasons and location
• Eat the foods in season (and eat local foods), Sleep in
  season, Work in season, Dress correctly for the season
  (and location)
• The Sage takes his signs from the movements of Heaven
  and Earth; who knows his principles? He accords with
  the Tao of yin and yang, and follows their seasonal
  activity. He follows the cycles of fullness and emptiness
  of Heaven and Earth, taking them as his constant.
