The teachings of an ancient health philosophy are as advanced, as they are simple, and can take you on a journey into the deeper understandings of life.
At the core of these teachings there are three energies that represent the primary components to life; The Three Treasures: Jing (essence) Qi (energy) and Shen (spirit). These Treasures are considered to be what embodies ones health, happiness, and life purpose. They are meant to be nourished, and not wasted. Thankfully, through the art of the ancient health traditions we can truly nurture these treasures on a much deeper level through a series of special herbs. Sacred materials that were associated with only the highest qualities of living.
The first treasure is known as Jing, and is simply the energy that is fundamental to all life. It is translated as “the giver of life,” or "essence."
Essence is viewed as the basis of growth, development, regeneration, and reproduction. Jing is what defines the body’s physical mass and where one looks to enhance energy, vitality and sexual vigor. The concept of Jing strongly correlates to genetics or genes. It works by going to the organs and purifying blood and revitalizing the kidneys, spleen and heart. Jing is our life-force reserve that we attribute from birth and was passed down from our parents & grandparents.
Jing has a direct correlation to having a healthy immune system and healing power. It is also the long term energy, endurance, and constitution of resilience that one has in their life. Anyone that spends most of their life on the extreme opposite end of what is considered healthy, yet seems to be very vital still, was born with abundant Jing. This Jing energy embodies robust health, long-term vitality, youthfulness — happiness, beauty, attractiveness, and grace. Jing energy is sexual energy…and it is our ability to reproduce and our children’s reproductive potential. It brings brawniness to the man and bestows beauty upon the woman. Jing energy relates to proper neurotransmitter production and to having well balanced hormones. Plentiful Jing equals confidence. It also supports mental energy, enthusiasm, and is one of the direct driving forces behind someone having strong willpower.
Jing is essentially our body's savings account of long-term vitality and energy. Our youthfulness and ability to handle stress depend on our bodies Jing contents. Many children are born Jing deficient, which is evident when their childhood is riddled with weaknesses or frequent sickness. Our Jing energy is depleted by simply living itself, but enervation, stress, and excessive loss of seminal fluids will rapidly deplete, or leak Jing even more. The kidneys are said to house Jing energy and so this is the system that we want to nourish the most.
The Ancients did not have access to microscopes or technology to see these small elements, they did, however, recognize that some important invisible substance was passed from parent to child and that imbalances or issues with this invisible substance could cause serious health problems or issues with growth and development. Their knowledge of the unknown was similar to how the Romans knew that atoms existed far before their discovery. The Ancients knew that certain herbs could be used to rejuvenate and restore the body.
Some of the primary herbs for revitalization of Jing are: He Shou Wu (prepared ), Rehmannia (prepared ), Reishi, Eucommia, Goji, Cordyceps, Cistanche, Morinda, Schizandra and Dendrobium. THE WAY is a considered a premier longevity formula that deeply nourishes Jing energy, by building Jing reserves and prevent Jing loss.
All Black foods are said to build Jing, with some of the best being: Black Bean, Black Sesame, Blackberries, Black Grapes, Seaweed, Black Rice. This is part of the reason why herbs such as (prepared) He Shou Wu + Rehmannia are so amazing, as they are “prepared” in a secret black bean sauce. Some other highly beneficial foods for building Jing levels are: Royal Jelly, Eggs, Coconut Water, Nuts & seeds, Bee Pollen, and Pine Pollen.
By incorporating Jing herbs and foods into your life, and living a peaceful, harmonious and fulfilling lifestyle you can receive rejuvenation, maintain vitality, and lay the foundation of longevity for yourself and future generations.
