Journey To Self-Healing 

By Hongchi Xiao

  

      Preface

Isn’t it joy to learn Tao and then die?

            

      I have been playing the “crossover” game my entire life. I call it Yun-You (roving): drifting like clouds, changing forms, gathering together or spreading out at varying temperatures. I just follow the flow of life. Chinese people often exclaim over the impermanence in life. In fact, all life forms are impermanent. Perhaps, the theme of life is endless change.

 

      I stayed in Beijing and taught at my university after graduation. One year later, I became an English teacher at a rural middle school in southeastern China. The following year, I went to a more distant place — Tibet. There I worked as a Chinese-English interpreter and traveled all over the magical land. Then, the next year, I went even further, to the U.S. for an MBA programme. Since then, I have further expanded the scope of my crossover game: from Wall Street to Hong Kong, from financial investment to co-authoring a novel titled Sex and Stocks, from the boisterous financial world to the lonely corners of Chinese medicine.

 

       For some time, I was totally immersed in the joy of curing illnesses and relieving people’s agonies. But soon I found that providing treatment is NOT the true way to helping patients. So I gave it up and turned to promoting PaidaLajin and other self-healing methods. This is a shift from curing people to teaching people how to self heal, or metaphorically, from offering people fish to teaching people how to fish.

 

       I’ve been to Tibet several times. Each time, I interacted with it in a different way. Early on, I went there to explore the land, later to cure Tibetans, and then to teach them how to self heal.

 

      The trajectory of my life may seem elusive, but there has always been an underlying theme. Perhaps, it can be called “Tao”, a word that runs through Chinese history, culture, tradition and philosophy. Tao, being abstract and concrete, formless and formal, is invisible, untouchable, and omnipresent.

 

      This book records some of my experiences of learning Chinese medicine and seeking Tao after I withdrew from the business world, and my reflections on body and soul, tradition and modernity. This is a journey of self-transcendence: from learning external therapies and curing patients to giving them up to promote self-healing methods. And it also reflects how I have been taking actions to propel health education and transformation of the health industry. Chinese medicine has provided an opportunity and opened the door for all these happenings.

 

      Why Chinese medicine? Because in it there is Tao. For a Chinese, Chinese medicine indeed points to a convenient way of realizing Tao. At the very least, I am applying Chinese therapies in an attempt to approach the Tao that is treading away from us. The Tao of Healing is an unusual Way. Realizing Tao through healing may be an unreachable ideal, yet nearing it is already most intriguing.

 

       Is it a blessing or a curse to be embroiled in the troubled times when the entire human race is experiencing massive changes unprecedented in tens of millennia?

 

       Ancient Chinese had it that the real havoc is not war but chaos in the heart. “Extraordinary men emerge in troubled times”, so goes another saying. How fortunate I was to acquaint with one such extraordinary man named Shi Xin De (also called Yue Hou Sheng). Under his guidance, I met masters of Chinese medicine, one after another. So I halted my money-making “busy-ness” and idle talk, and roved to learn Chinese medicine from folk masters. I believed that the essence of Chinese medicine could only be found among folk masters. Sure enough, this belief was continually proven correct. I felt that the learning of Chinese medicine should go hand in hand with clinical practice, so I always paralleled the learning with the practicing. I knew people in the countryside were in dire need of medical services, so I went and gave them free treatments. I realized that in this age there was too much talking and too little action, so I just kept on doing, doing and doing, to balance a life that was tilted by too much empty talk. When I found that man is not cured, but invariably self heals with better effect than that of medical intervention, without a moment’s hesitation, I plunged into promotion of self-healing methods across the world.

 

       Initially I learned acupressure (treatment of symptoms by applying pressure with the fingers to specific pressure points on the body) from a fisherman and Kungfu master in western Hunan province. I soon began to apply it on hemiplegic patients. My very first patient was a 70-year-old paralyzed man. Each day, I gave him two treatments, each for five minutes. After five days, he was able to walk on his own. In ten days, he was well enough to go back home. Later I used acupressure to cure a number of patients with hypertension, headaches, insomnia and depression.

 

       Then I had a seemingly accidental encounter with Dr. Zhu, a renowned orthopedic doctor practicing in Hong Kong. Dr. Zhu was nearly 70, and yet our age gap did not distance us. We clicked immediately and soon became good friends. I learned Lajin (stretching on a special bench) and bone-setting from him and cured many patients with neck and lower back pains. From the great number of clinical cases I treated, Dr. Zhu’s observation that most disc herniation are mis-diagnosed was affirmed. Dr. Zhu applied Lajin only to treat bone-related problems; what I discovered in my clinical practice was that Lajin also had very good curative effects on hypertension, insomnia, depression, obesity, urinary and reproductive disorders. Later on, Lajin was found to be effective on a growing number of diseases, through the voluntary practice of my readers.

 

       Meanwhile, Shi arranged for me to meet Mr. Yang, a master of acupuncture who had worked in mineral prospecting for decades. Yang taught me acupuncture, and in return I taught him acupressure and Lajin. On the first day I learned acupuncture, I began to insert needles into my own body. Very soon, I was able to cure some relatives and friends with acupuncture. However, the real learning with Mr. Yang only took place while we travelled together to Mt. Wuzhong, Mt. Qingcheng and Mt. Emei (all famous mountains in China). Constantly putting the learning into practice, I was soon able to see the instantaneous healing effects of acupuncture, acupressure, Lajin and bone-setting. With Mr. Yang guiding me, I cured patients of many different diseases, and was filled with the joy of artistic creation and healing the sick. Sometimes when throngs of patients came to us, it was almost like we were having a “carnival”.  

 

        Later on, I “coincidentally” met Taoist  Xiao on Mt. Emei twice, and learned Paida (a Taoist secret therapy originally called Revealing Diseases) from him. I was overjoyed to find that Paida is as effective as Lajin in terms of scope of application and healing effect, and that Paida and Lajin,when practiced together, have even greater curative power. Thus I began to vigorously promote PaidaLajin at home and abroad, and found it could cure many critical and rare diseases, including those related to internal medicine, surgery, gynecology, pediatrics, etc., and especially acute problems, prostate, gynecological, psychiatric disorders and skin problems. 

 

      With more and more people practicing PaidaLajin, the number of diseases relieved or healed with it kept growing. Increasingly, patients who had failed to find an effective cure after months or years of medical treatment experienced the wondrous effect of PaidaLajin by practicing it themselves!

 

       For instance, a woman, after slapping on her breasts for a month, found the breast tumor gone; a man with bilateral necrosis of the femoral head felt much improvement after stretching on a Lajin bench for just once; a patient suffering from blindness and edema due to kidney failure resumed his eyesight and the swelling disappeared after several slapping sessions; many falling unconscious as a result of acute heart attack have been saved by slaps on their inner elbows…

 

      More and more exhilarating testimonials came in. From preliminary statistics of successful healing cases, it was found that PaidaLajin has better healing effects when implemented by the patient himself rather than by a medical professional. And the healing effects are amazing. One can self heal almost any illness by conscientiously practicing PaidaLajinover time.

 

      This finding is way too abrupt, too significant. It can seem like a new therapy threatening the authority of mainstream medicine. Yet the reality is: PaidaLajin is NOT medical treatment. It refers to specific slapping and stretching exercises that can be learned in ONE minute, simpler than even a child’s game. Rather than being labeled as a therapy, it is a philosophic thinking, a way of life.

 

      PaidaLajin is no new invention. It has been practiced in China for millennia. We are only re-discovering and re-polishing a gem of the ancient civilization. In fact, different variations of slapping and stretching can be found throughout the ages and across the world. How comePaidaLajin gains sweeping popularity now? Well, it is an inevitable result of the excessive intervention of modern medicine on humanity. “Out of the depth of misfortune comes bliss.” These are words of wisdom in I Ching, or The Book of Changes, an ancient Chinese classic. Isn’t it so?

 

       The familiar Yin-Yang Tai Chi diagram vividly illustrates this natural change: when Yin energy rises, Yang energy falls and vice versa. The seemingly sudden change is in effect gradual. Hence, the self-healing method overturning and transcending modern medicine is a natural, gradual and inevitable process. It is even safe to say that every effort modern science and medicine makes is fueling this process of overturn and transcendence. After all efforts are made, man will discover that the best disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment happen naturally, the less intervention the better.

 

        This is because there is a mechanism in us, preset by the “Creator”, the “self-healing power”. Since PaidaLajin self-healing method has much better healing effect than that of medical intervention, and everyone is born with a self-healing power, there is no need to seek for a cure externally. Why not opt for and promote self-healing? Moreover, the right to self heal, just like the right to pursue freedom and happiness, is a most basic human right. Why should we abandon this natural right?

 

      The story of Adam and Eve in Genesis, Old Testament of the Bible may give us some reflections: The ancestors of humanity secretively ate the forbidden fruit at the temptation of a serpent, and assumed that they had the access to knowledge. Armed with this limited human knowledge, they started to intervene and replace the original creation of the “Creator”. Human civilization has thus evolved till today, when we are constantly threatened by growing crises.

 

      From the Buddhist point of view, man already has everything necessary for his existence. Explore and manifest the sufficiency of the human nature, diseases will be self healed. Further explore the human nature, one can be conscious, or to put it another way, enlightened.

 

      Another way to decipher self-healing goes like this: Man was initially created as a lifeless form. Not until God blew air (Chinese call it Qi) into it did man become alive. PaidaLajin self-healing method is effective because it boosts the declining Qi (invisible energy) in the human body.

 

      Some may ask, “With so many effective self-healing options like yoga,Tai Chi and various sports out there, why do you have to promotePaidaLajin?”

 

      Well, the answer is clear: PaidaLajin responds to the calling of our time, and it is a vivid manifestation of the truth that the simplest way is the ultimately deepest way. It meets the main requirements in resolving humanity’s medical, aging and environmental crises. The reasons are as follows:

 

      1. PaidaLajin is NO medical treatment. It DOES NOT rely on medication, surgery or hospitals, and yet the healing effect is better than that of medical intervention. This is undoubtedly a milestone in human medical history.

 

      2. PaidaLajin has superior healing effect, and it basically solves medical problems, acute or chronic, many of which are considered “incurable” in mainstream medicine. Having better healing effect than mainstream medicine is a basic pre-condition for its rapid spread.

 

      3. PaidaLajin is super simple. Everyone can learn and grasp it. And it works as long as you practice it. Naturally, it can be rapidly popularized on a large scale.

 

      4. PaidaLajin is safe, with NO toxic side effects. Well, practicing it can make you slimmer and better-looking, and even increase sex drive, which can be the most “visible” side effects. This is “organic” healing, perfectly in line with today’s much sought-after trend of organic food and other green movements.

 

       5. PaidaLajin is widely applicable in empowering people to self heal acute and chronic health problems, including most of the common physical, psychological and spiritual problems. Its application scope is wider than that of medical intervention.

 

       6. PaidaLajin can greatly reduce humanity’s medical expenses, and can fundamentally avoid the excessive demand and waste of medical resources.

 

       7. PaidaLajin helps clear the source of alarming pollution on the human body, our Mother Earth and the outer space.

 

        Many people will harbor doubts about or be perplexed by these ideas, for there is way too much conflict with human knowledge, perception and mode of thinking. So I suggest that you bypass second- or third-hand knowledge, just plunge into it, explore it and practice it. This is the scientific spirit. And I have been treading this path myself.

 

      My exploration of the Tao of Healing and the amazing effect ofPaidaLajin in helping people self heal acute, chronic and severe problems, have led me to feel it deeply that there is a natural bond between the way of thinking in Chinese medicine and Tao. I can only sigh with relief: How lucky humanity is to have Chinese medicine, which does belong to all men on earth! The Tao of Chinese medicine can inspire man to self heal. Were Chinese medicine to disappear, it would definitely be misfortune for the entire human race!

 

        One of the root causes of the crises challenging the world today is extreme westernization. Just imagine the nightmare that would haunt humanity if Chinese, Indian and other Oriental cultures were to be fully westernized. It goes without saying that Western culture is one of humanity’s remarkable cultures. If it merges with Oriental cultures and thus reduces extreme exclusion and excessive material pursuit, the entire human race will be healthier and happier.

 

        As a Chinese descendent, I often wonder, “How many things have we got left that are not yet westernized?” Whatever we learned since we were little, be it science or liberal arts, scientific or medical knowledge...are basically western knowledge. Only Chinese medicine is the original creation of China. The profound wisdom of Chinese medicine is not only expressed in its scope and efficacy, but also through the Tao of Healing, i.e. the Tao of Yin-Yang interactions, which is distinctly different from the western way of scientific thinking. All Chinese therapies follow this Tao of Healing. For instance, acupuncture works like a precise GPS. Whatever disease it is, so long as the acupuncturist can accurately assess the Yin-Yang imbalance and insert needles at relevant acupoints along the meridians, it will work. The pleasure of making money is no way comparable to the joy of relieving people’s agonies. If even I, someone who only started learning Chinese medicine in midlife, could cure so many “incurable” diseases with “low-tech” Chinese therapies, I have to delve into the particularities of Chinese and western medicines, the cultures that nourish them, and how they could complement each other and integrate.

 

        During my one-month stay in Sichuan province, though I only healed just over a hundred patients, I was deeply moved by the miraculous effects and became very confident in Chinese medicine. Shortly afterwards, I traveled to Tibet. In the two weeks there, I alone treated more than 1,600 Tibetans, sometimes over 100 patients a day. Each day, I worked from early morning till midnight, and 90% of the patients benefited significantly from my treatment. In addition to curing various pains, I treated a number of deaf or tinnitus patients. One day, I treated a record number of over 10 patients with ear problems, and most had notable improvement. An elderly lama suffering deafness of both ears was able to hear us speak from over a dozen meters away after just one treatment. It was obvious that the formless, invisible and yet omnipresent “Tao” was manifested through my hands. Just as a saying goes, “hands follow the heart, and methods are thus created.” Indeed, the right state of the “heart” is of paramount importance. With this “heart” and practical experience, I no longer indulged in eloquent, empty talks on culture and religion, instead, I began to take real actions to heal people, and through application of Chinese therapies, I have been promoting long-lost Chinese traditions and way of life.

 

       Some may marvel at my romantic and colourful journeys, but tend to overlook the trials and tribulations of a roving healer, not to mention the complexity and perils of today’s world. From ancient times till now, there have been countless masters specialized in a certain domain, but not many dedicate themselves to seeking Tao, and it is more rare to actually realize it. Some Chinese therapists fixate their eyes on material gains; many learn Chinese medicine hoping for high returns. Some grow arrogant and biased against other therapies, trading honors for profits, or burdening themselves with fame. Some therapists give in on their moral grounds when they grow old, tarnishing their hard-won reputation. All these lead people astray, and even to obsession and eventual destruction. Some people repeatedly claim to have faith in Chinese medicine, but at critical moments, they turn to western medicine for saving their lives. Their deep-lying “faith” is thus as visible as lice on a bare head. More ironically, some therapists who have been practicing Chinese medicine for a lifetime eventually pass away after a surgery or taking western drugs. This is NOT a complete denial of western medicine, but one is likely to respond with a knowing smile at the elements of tragedy and farce in today’s world. Lao-tzu said, “God's mill grinds slow but sure.” Indeed so.

 

       At the end of these Chinese medicine learning journeys, my life was completely transformed. I used to go on domestic and international business trips; later on I traveled mostly to visit healing masters, promote Chinese medicine or cure patients; now I travel almost solely for promotion of PaidaLajin self-healing. Even I, a goof-off, have been frequently invited to treat patients. It is not that I am a medical expert as such. The sad truth is, Chinese medicine is abandoned by its own people, and there is no successor. And self-healing is abandoned by the entire human race. As I got increasingly immersed in promotion of the self-healing method, I became more and more convinced that Chinese medicine and other natural therapies, labeled as “superstitious” by many, manifest the Tao that transcends science; in contrast, modern science and western medicine, sacred in many people’s heart, can be quite misleading.

 

      Just imagine how many people with “lumbar disc herniation” are paying for the tortures of medication and surgery. In actual fact, “lumbar disc herniation” is a downright lie, for the lower back and leg pains that most patients suffered from are not caused by “lumbar disc herniation”. The real cause is that the stress one feels makes the intangible “Heart” contract, and contraction of the “Heart” in turn leads to contraction of tendons and displacement of bones. As long as the “Heart” is well regulated, several external treatments will work.

 

        When I discovered the wonder of PaidaLajin, I knew that patients could practice it and self heal pains and diseases (refer to related chapters in the book). When I shared PaidaLajin with others, thousands of them self healed their problems, without the need to go to hospital. Isn’t it even better?! Later on, I went to Tibet again, not to cure the sick, but to teach people how to self heal. And I myself have transformed from a therapist to an instructor and promoter of self-healing.

 

       If you still have a very abstract impression of the self-healing method, I can very specifically describe you several inevitable trends: Just by practicing PaidaLajin, hundreds of millions of people will be relieved of lower back and leg pains, and be freed from reliance on medication, surgery, wheelchair or crutches; hundreds of millions of women will be freed from the threat of breast cancer, and the tortures of medical checkups and surgery; hundreds of millions of men will no longer constantly go to the toilet in the night because of prostate disorders; hundreds of millions of people can easily lose weight, keep fit and become better-looking; the vast majority of Alzheimer’s patients will feel the good curative effect; and billions of people will use this organic therapy in prevention of diseases and aging...

 

       Since preventing and curing diseases and losing weight can be this simple, what is the need for lifelong medication? Why operate with knives, pincers and scissors? Why cut the body open and drain the Qi and blood? Why the need for fighter aircraft when there can be peace without fighting? This is the charm of self-healing, the power of the human heart. In addition to having good efficacy, self-healing is low cost, simple and natural with minimal side effects. It is for everyone. It can fulfill almost all of men’s aspirations for health and disease prevention, and environmental protection. This is exactly why the self-healing method can be popularized in the world. Such strong and graceful soft power will un-necessitate man’s war on himself and the plunder and pollution of the nature. When man does not need surgical knives or medication, is there still any need for warships and nuclear weapons?

 

       If man strays away from Tao, pseudo-science will draw the world into greater chaos. We are lucky, perhaps exactly because we are born into a messy world spoiled by pseudo-science. Pseudo-science is holding high the banner of science but having no exploratory spirit essential for science advancement.

 

       After drifting for years abroad, in mid-life, I, a total layman, began to learn and apply the wisdom of Chinese medicine and self-healing. My experience of healing and health promotion can mirror that of many, for most people are not medical professionals after all. But who does not care about life and health? And who is not concerned about the future of mankind?

 

        Impacted by waves of modernization, man’s rootlessness and ignorance have led to countless chaos and tragedies. Hence, the topic of Chinese medicine, western medicine and self-healing relates to tradition and modernity, and to both theory and practice. If I talk only of the metaphysical Tao, it will be too theoretical and impractical; if I focus solely on healing, it will be too specialized and pragmatic. In the latter case, I will be just another healer. If I can sit here with you and talk about Chinese medicine and Tao, and can get up instantly to improve a patient’s condition, then Tao and the theory will be more convincing. If you can not only self heal, but can teach thousands of people to self heal and transform man’s medical behavior into a self-healing health regime, what a wondrous leap it will be! A theory is subject to discourse, whereasTao has to be realized through concrete action.

 

       This book is part of my effort to balance empty talk with action. I am here to share with you my learning experience and insights into healing. Hopefully, as soon as you finish the book, you will be able to heal yourself and your loved ones with PaidaLajin and other simple methods. Get ready to be wowed by their magical curative effect. This is not supernatural power or something mysterious. Everyone can do it, for “the simplest way is the truest”.

 

        My roving, once it started, has never stopped. All these seemingly magical happenings are in effect very natural, for all this is at the hand of the “Creator”. Chinese people use another word to describe it — Tao(the Way). Hence, in Lao Tse, the description of Genesis is as follows: “The Way bears one; one becomes two; two becomes three; and three nurtures everything.” All things originated from the “ONENESS”. As Taois invisible to the naked eye, it needs to be manifested in certain tangible ways. PaidaLajin self-healing method is one way of manifesting and promoting the simplest and yet deepest Tao. 

 

       Isn’t it joy to learn Tao and then die?

    五年前《医行天下》出版时,我还做着中医梦。那时我只知道中医在中国都行不通,还谈何走向世界?随着拍打拉筋的问世,我才发现只有根本就不是医疗行为的自愈法才能彻底摆脱西医游戏规则对全人类的束缚,为全球的医疗危机提供根本解决方案。从医疗走向自愈,既是一个重新发现,也是一次自我超越,治病救人也逐渐变为传播自愈,故新书名为《自愈之旅》,其中保留了云游学医部分内容,后半部记录了从医行天下到自愈之旅的心历路程。本书主要章节将中英文同步连载。

 

朝闻道,夕死,不亦乐乎?(自序)

萧宏慈

 

    我的一生一直在跨界游戏。我称之为云游:像云一样随风飘荡,随温度而变化聚散。中国人常说:人生无常。其实所有的生命都无常。或许,只有变化无穷才是生命的主旋律。
 

    大学毕业后,我留在北京当了大学教师,一年后,我就去了一个偏远的乡村中学教书,又过一年,我去更遥远的西藏当英文翻译,遍游西藏。再过一年,我去了更远的美国读MBA。从此我的云游跨度越来越大,从华尔街到香港,从做金融投资到写金融小说,再从热闹无比的金融界投身于寂寞冷清的中医江湖,为人治病解痛乐此不疲。但很快我又发现给人治病不是真正的救人之道,于是再抛弃医疗行为而推广自愈法,从给人治病变为教人自愈,或曰从授之以鱼改为授之以渔。比如我多次云游西藏,每次却都以不同的方式爱上西藏,早期是云游探险,后来去给藏人治病,再后来是直接教西藏人自愈。
 

    人生轨迹看似如此多变,但其中还是有个驾驭生命的主旋律,或许我们可将这看不见的东西称为“道”。这是贯穿中国历史、文化、传统和哲学的一个字。道,既抽象又具体,既是形而上又是形而下。道看不见、摸不着,却无处不在。
 

    本书就是我退出商界后学医求道的部分记录,也是我对身体与灵魂,传统与现代的反思录。从学医治病到放弃医疗而传播自愈法,是我对自己的超越,也是我用行动来推动健康教育和产业变革的见证。所有这些发生的契机和法门是中医。为何是中医?因为医中有道!对中国人而言,中医的确是个悟道的方便法门。至少,我在试图用中医来靠近那渐渐远离我们的道。医道,非常道!即使我们不能进入通医达道的理想境界,能靠近道,亦属妙不可言矣!
 

    吾等生逢乱世!整个人类正遭遇万年未有之巨变,幸耶?不幸耶?
 

    古人云:大乱非兵荒马乱,而是人心之乱。又曰:乱世现,奇人出。吾有幸认识一位奇人释新德(乐后圣),在他的指引下,我遇到了一个又一个中医高人。于是我不再忙于赚钱和空谈,而是云游四海,到民间拜师学医。我认定中医的精华在民间,果然,我在行动中不断证明了自己的判断正确;我认定中医的学习和临床应该同步,所以我的学医与临床一直同步;我认为乡下更需要医疗服务,所以就到乡下免费给人治疗;我认为这个时代有太多的空谈,太少的行动,所以我就直接行动、行动、再行动,用行动去平衡被空谈搅得失衡的人生。当我发现人其实不是被疗愈而都是自愈,而且自愈效果比医疗效果更好,我便义无反顾地全身心投入到自愈法的全球推广中。
 

    最初,我从湘西的一个渔民兼武师那里学到了点穴疗法,便开始用点穴治疗偏瘫病人。我的第一个病人是个半身不遂的70岁老人,我每天给他点穴两次,每次约5分钟,5天后他就下地走路,10天就出院回家了。随后我又用点穴治好了一系列高血压、头痛、失眠和抑郁症。后来,一个看似偶然的机遇让我结识了香港的伤科名医朱大夫。我和这位年近70的长者一见如故,很快成了忘年交。向他学习拉筋、正骨后,我治好了很多颈椎痛、腰腿痛等病人。朱大夫用拉筋只治疗骨伤病,但我在实践中发现,用拉筋治疗高血压、失眠、抑郁症、减肥和妇科病、男科病也有很好的疗效。后来我发现,患者们自己通过拉筋治疗的疾病越来越多。与此同时,释新德又带我结识了老杨,一个搞了几十年地质探矿后半路学医的针灸高人。他教我针灸,我教他点穴和拉筋。我学针的第一天就开始在自己身上扎针,并很快就治好了周围一些亲友的病。然而真正跟杨师父的临床学习,是在云游四川雾中山、青城山、峨眉山的路上,学习与临床同步,使我很快将针灸、拉筋、正骨、点穴等疗法运用到实践中,并达到了立竿见影的效果。在师父的指导下,我治好了种类更多的病人,心中充满了艺术创作和治病救人的愉悦,遇到大批病人时我们简直像进入“狂欢节”。
 

    再后来,我在峨眉山两度“偶遇”云游的肖道长,跟他学了道家秘法“拍打功”,没想到拍打治病的种类和疗效不亚于拉筋,而且拍打与拉筋配合疗效更佳。于是我在国内外大力推广拍打拉筋,结果发现拍打拉筋可以治疗内、外、妇、儿科的许多疑难杂症,尤其对各种急症、前列腺疾病、妇科病、皮肤病、精神科疾病有较好疗效。
 

    随着拍打拉筋在读者中不断推广,治疗的病种也不断增加,以至于越来越多在医院久治不愈的病,患者自己用拍打拉筋法治疗后竟出现奇效,比如:在乳房上直接拍打鸡蛋大的乳腺肿瘤一个月,肿瘤居然消失了;双侧股骨头坏死之人,居然拉筋一次就好了大半;因肾衰竭而失明、浮肿的人拍打几次后就复明、消肿;急性心脏病发作后晕厥的患者,拍打其肘关节马上得救……令人振奋的案例越来越多,我将治好的案例略加汇总,发现拍打拉筋由患者而非医者实施的效果更好,而且好得令人难以置信:可毫无悬念地自愈医院治疗的几乎所有疾病。
 

    这个发现太大、太突然,听上去好像是一个新疗法对主流医学的颠覆。但事实上拍打拉筋并非一个医疗行为,而是简单到一分钟就可学会的物理动作,比儿童的游戏还简单。与其说这是医疗方法,倒不如说是一种思维方法、思想观念。拍打拉筋也并非一个新发明,它在中国已经实施了几千年,所以说这只是对古老文明的重新发现和回归。也可说,这是现代医学对人类和地球过度干预的必然结果。用《易经》的语言可称之为“否极泰来”,那张令人熟悉的阴阳太极图可以很形象生动的展示这一自然的变化:阴极阳升,阳极阴升,看似突变,实则渐变。所以,自愈法对现代医学的颠覆和超越是自然的、逐渐的,也是必然的。甚至可以说,现代科学、医学的一切努力都是在为这个颠覆和超越增砖添瓦!人类穷尽一切努力的结果,却只能发现最好的诊断、疗愈、预防是自然发生的,人为干预越少越好,因为这个机制是造物主给每个人早已预设的,可简称之为自愈系统!既然自愈法比医疗的效果好得多,而且自愈力人人与生俱来,不用外求,为何不推广自愈法呢?更何况,自愈权就跟人追求自由、幸福的权利一样,是一项最基本的人权,我们为何要抛弃与生俱来的权利?
 

   《旧约》的“创世纪”中亚当和夏娃的故事或许会令人有所启迪:人类的始祖在蛇的诱惑下偷吃了禁果,就真的以为获得了知识,并开始用人类有限的知识去干预、取代造物主的原创,于是人类文明便演变到当今危机四伏的地步。再换一个角度,从佛法的观点看,人作为一种存在本自具足,把这自足本性发掘出来,病就会自愈,继续发掘,就自觉了,或曰开悟了。还有一点可以帮助我们理解自愈法:神最初造出的人是个物质体,没有生命,直到神给他吹了一口气,人才有了生命。拍打拉筋自愈法之所以疗愈有效,就是因为它激活了人体内不断衰亡的气!
 

    有人会问:人类自愈方法很多,如瑜伽、太极拳和形形色色的体育运动都有自愈效果,为何你偏偏要推广拍打拉筋?答案很明确:因为拍打拉筋顺应了时代要求,生动诠释了大道至简,满足了解决人类医疗危机、老年危机和环保危机的主要条件:
 

 1、 自愈法是非医疗行为,不依赖药物、手术、医生和医院,而且疗愈效果更好。这无疑是人类医疗史上的里程碑;

 2、 自愈法疗效超群,基本解决了主流医学无法解决的医学难题,从慢性病到急症抢救莫不如此。疗效超越主流医学是自愈法得以快速传播的基本前提;

 3、 自愈法超级简单,人人可学,一学就会,一用就灵,自然便于在人类大规模、快速普及;

 4、 自愈法安全可靠,无毒副作用,其最大副作用是减肥、美容、增强性功能。而且它是一种有机疗愈,跟人类当今推崇的有机食品等各类绿色环保运动一脉相承,相得益彰;

 5、 自愈法的自愈范围极广,急性、慢性病通治,涵盖了人类常见的大部分身心灵疾病,比医院的治疗范围更广;

 6、 自愈法极大降低了人类的医疗费用,从根本上消除了对医疗资源的过度需求和浪费;

 7、 自愈法从源头上解决了人体、地球、太空的巨大污染。
 

    上述观点肯定会令很多人怀疑、迷惑,因为这跟人类已有的知识、观念和思维方式有太大的冲突,所以我建议大家直接探索、实践,而不必经由其它二手、三手的知识标准审核。这其实正是科学精神。我本人也是这样一路走来。对医道的探索和用拍打拉筋自愈急症、慢症、重症病的震撼性疗效,让我深切感到中医思维方式与道的不解之缘!我不得不感慨:幸亏人类有中医!中医也属于人类!因为中医之道可让人类领悟自愈。若中医亡,则一定是整个人类的不幸!当今世界各种危机的根源之一,也正是人类极端西化的结果。我们可以想象,如果中国和印度这样的东方文明摇篮也全面西化,那肯定是全人类的梦魇!西方文明当然是人类的优秀文明之一,但如果它与东方文明互相融合,减少极端的排他性和过度的物质化,则全人类一定更健康、幸福!
 

    作为一个中国人,我常常想:中国还有多少东西没有被西化?我们从小到大所学的知识,无论理科还是文科,无论科学还是医学......基本上都是西方的知识。而惟有中医才是中国的原创!而且中医的博大精深不仅在于其术、其效,更在于其道,亦即不同于西方科学思维方式的“阴阳之道”。中医的任何疗法都不离此道。比如针灸就如同精确制导的导弹,无论何病,只要抓住病机,辨清阴阳再寻经而治就有效。为人解除病痛的快乐是赚钱的快感无法比拟的。连我这个半路学医的人也能用中医的“低科技”治好这么多“高科技”不好治的病,不得不让我深度思考中医与西医,进而思考东学和西学的互补与融合。
 

    在云游川地的一个月内,我虽然只治好了上百个病人,但奇妙的疗效已令我对中医充满信心。在紧接着云游西藏的两个星期内,我一个人治疗了1600多病人,一天治100多个人,几乎每天都从早晨一直治疗到半夜,而且90%的病人都有显著疗效。除了各类痛症,我还治了一批耳聋、耳鸣患者,最多时一天治10多个耳疾人,绝大多数都有显著效果。有位双耳全聋的老喇嘛被治了一次就能听到十几米以外的讲话。显然,那无形无相却无所不在的“道”,在通过我的手彰显。有道是:手随心转,法从手出!心最重要!有了这颗心和这样的实践,我就不再仅限于对文化、宗教的高谈阔论,而是身体力行地治病救人,并通过中医向世人普及失传已久的中华道统和传统。
 

    有些人只看到了云游的浪漫与多彩,却忽视了浪迹天涯的艰辛与磨难,更不见当今江湖的复杂与险恶。世上拥有一技之长的术士从古到今数不胜数,然潜心求道之人不多,得道之人更为罕见。有些人因掌握中医的一技之长后便只顾钻营牟利;许多人想学中医也是想因此一本万利;还有些人恃才傲物,因偶有所得而生门户之见,或见利忘义,为声名所累;有的甚至因此而晚节不保。凡此种种,皆因人偏离正道,甚至走火入魔。也有人口口声声相信中医,但一到关键时刻还是指望西医救命,其内心深处的砝码由此可见。更具讽刺意味的是,有的人自己当了一辈子中医,最后却死于西医的药物和刀下。此说绝非是对西医的全盘否定,而是对当今世界悲剧与闹剧的会心一笑!老君曰:“天网恢恢,疏而不漏&
