Foods not to eat if you have Hypertension
One of my students said that she has high blood pressure and is taking medication for this. She is a very nice lady and is like my mother-in-law who is always busy. Even at home, my mother-in-law cannot just sit down to relax and watch a programme on the telly. She has to iron or sew or eat something while she is watching as her mind is not relaxed. One of my grandmothers was also like this. Having had to bear and raise eight children, she was kept very busy and did not like to waste time even when she was older. So it is a bit like the chicken and egg conundrum. Not being able to relax the body means that the mind also does not have a chance to slow down. When the mind cannot relax, many kinds of problems will result including s tr e s s, w or r y, d i ge s t ion problems, insomnia and even high blood pressure. The more we wind a clock, the tighter the spring will become until eventually, it weakens and eventually snaps. This weakening of the spring is like our body starting to have...
Further care of the severe casualty consists of atropine administration to minimize secretions and ventilation until spontaneous respiration resumes. Oxime administration should be repeated at hourly intervals for two or three additional doses. The preferred method of administration of the oxime is by IV drip of 1 gram over 20 to 30 minutes (more rapid administration will cause hypertension), but 3 additional oxime autoinjectors (total dose of 1.8 grams) may be given if the IV route cannot be used. The need for ventilation may continue for 0.5 to 3 hours. Unless prolonged hypoxia or other complications have occurred, the casualty will eventually begin having spontaneous muscular activity and make sporadic attempts to breathe. Muscles will become stronger and breathing more regular, and the casualty will have intermittent episodes of conscious behavior. Within an hour or two, he will be breathing, moving, and conscious, although he will be weak and intermittently obtunded.
There is a disadvantage of Wai Dan moving exercises, however. Because of the repeated tensing and relaxing of the muscles during training, the muscle itself will be built up, as in weight lifting, and can become overdeveloped. This overdevelopment will slow you down, and at the same time will constrict the channels. When these overdeveloped muscles are not regularly exercised, they accumulate fat, which will further narrow the channels and the Chi and blood will become stagnant. Common symptoms of this phenomenon are high blood pressure, local nerve pain, and poor muscle control. In the Chinese martial arts this is called San Kung or Energy Dispersion . As long as the practitioner avoids overdeveloping his muscles, San Kung will not happen.
The lion gua requires that the hands stretch out in full strength, moving the internal and external, upper and lower torso to combine into one energy. When performing the lion (qian) gua, the practitioner concentrates on manifesting strength and power from the stretching of the tendons from the hands all the way down to the toes (wrapping and reeling the silk). The body should be completely integrated and both the internal and external qi of the upper and lower torso should be combined in one energy. When this kua is practiced correctly, the practitioner will effectively strengthen and stimulate the lungs and breathing as well as the brain and central nervous system. If the gua is practiced incorrectly (using physical strength instead of using jing and forcing the qi instead of relaxing and nurturing it), one will cause internal blockages which may result in high blood pressure.
While it is necessary to regularly move all areas of the body through a full range of motion to maintain optimum health, there are two areas of primary importance when practicing qi gong. These are, the joints of the body and the internal organs. The internal organs are responsible for the production, storage, and distribution of energy in the body. If the internal organs are not free to move as they are designed to move, they will not function properly. Each of the organs are designed to move inside the body cavity in a specific manner. If they do not move as they should, the ligamental attachments which hold the organs in place begin to tighten and the organ will either not be able to move freely or will become stuck in an awkward position. Many internal disorders such as kidney stones, bladder infections, poor digestion, shortness or breath, and high blood pressure can be caused by the internal organs not being able to move properly inside the body. Proper motion can be easily...
Raise your right heel as you do this and turn your waist to your right by 45 degrees. Your eyes will look to the East although your head is only to the NE. Change the state of each palm again so that the right is now Yang while the left is Yin and pick up your right foot replacing it on its heel where it was as you turn more to your right. Photo No. 10. This is still an inhalation. Exhale as you roll your weight onto your right foot by 70 and bring your right palm up to in front of your left palm as if holding a small ball. The last thing is that you should allow your left toes to be dragged around by 45 to point to the NE. Keep the foot flat on the ground when this happens swivelling on the heel. Photo No. 11. Exhale. This is a very deadly neck strike with a shoulder set-up dim-mak strike to SP 19 (Spleen Point No 19), with the main thrust into the Dim-Mak point called ST 9 (stomach point No. 9). This causes instant knock out from the action of the Carotid sinus upon the heart via...
This is one of the most potent of the eight exercises. It has a powerful effect on your central nervous system and the circulation of both blood and Chi to your head. It stimulates the vital power of your kidneys. It also strengthens the activity of your eyeballs, your neck and shoulder muscles, and your nerves, and is excellent for alleviating high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries.
We cannot live with either high or low blood pressure. Many experts in China believe that the blood flow is the physical expression or 'opposite' to the Qi flow. We must also maintain a balanced level of internal pressure where Qi is concerned. The biggest mistake that most instructors make is to take the literal translation of sung and then 'relax so much that they lose any internal tension, mistaking it for external tension. If we have too little blood pressure we become ill and eventually die, same for high blood pressure. It is the same with the level of Qi pressure in the body. We must maintain a balance of this pressure. We can attain this by the practising of our forms. Another reason why the forms are so important. External martial artists take this idea too far and only use external tension while the 'mystical' variety of Taijiquan people take it the other way with no internal tension, both are incorrect.
I have done extensive research on the carotid sinus, seeking out the most knowledgeable people in the world. I wanted to know exactly why a person would black out when even sometimes only stroked in this area. Other people have knocked themselves out when they have turned their head suddenly because of a hypersensitive carotid sinus. In striking to ST 9, we fool the brain into believing that deadly high blood pressure is present, and in many cases, high blood pressure is present when struck in this area because of the carotid artery being pinched. Nowadays, everyone uses the name of ST 9 to indicate the knock out strike to the neck. Since then, martial artists have been a little more careful when executing these knockouts. But the knockouts should never be done just to show off, they should only ever be used in a self-defence situation as the dangers are great. For instance, a recipient can die several years later from stroke by the internal wall of the carotid artery slowly...
The years around fifty can be crucial in a person's life. A surprising number of people reach this age and suddenly experience a kind of rapid deterioration and collapse. Some who have had a very hard early life are victims of sudden death through heart attacks and other violent traumas. Many more experience a range of other problems such as spinal pain, frozen shoulders, high blood pressure, loss of self-control, chronic illness, severe depression, and lassitude. All the pressures of life seem to converge at this point in a person's existence.
Someone who has been struck here and who has not been treated, will have a complexion like someone who has smoked all of their lives. Like, someone who is supposed to be 35 years old but who looks like 65 years old This strike also works very well with the mind point on the chin. Someone is put out to it very easily with a light slap on this point after HT 3 has been struck. If struck in a proximal way, will cause high blood pressure. If struck straight in will cause the heart to weaken over a period. On the radial side of the tendon of the muscle flexor carp ulnaris, 1.5 cun above the transverse crease of the wrist when the palm faces upwards. This is a metal and jing point, usually used for local problems In the healing area. It adds fire to the heart and causes high blood pressure immediately.

The Hara (One Point) is the site of the third center of power in the body, located approximately two inches below the navel. This is the body's center of gravity. It also represents the water element. From this point flows the Yang Wei Mo, or Positive Arm Channel, which rises across the chest and extends down the inner arms to the palm and middle finger tips and the Yin Wei Mo, or Negative Arm Channel, which also passes through the arms, but with the emphasis on veins instead of arteries. If the former (Yang Yu) is affected, the heart will be aggravated, the palms will be feverish, and the arm joints will be stiff. Headaches, fevers, and toothaches are also indicated. If the latter is not functioning properly, nervous disorders, hypertension, and epilepsy may result.
