Cause of aging
Healthy longevity is the ideal that people dream of.
Medical doctors of all ages have been exploring the causes of aging and anti-aging methods since ancient times, with a view to improving the physical fitness of human beings and achieving the goal of prolonging life.
The length of life is affected by many factors.
The doctors of the past thought that aging is related to the internal and external causes, but the internal factors are the main ones, and the internal factors are the main factors that cause aging, in addition to the strength of the congenital endowment, and the spleen and kidney deficiency.
The external is mainly the result of a combination of factors such as acquired environment, climate, nutrition, mental state, medical and health conditions, economic status, and personal hygiene.
The motherland medicine believes that the following main factors are the primary cause of aging.
(1) Yin and Yang disorders?
The theory of yin and yang should be said: “The birth of the book, based on yin and yang 0, shows that human growth, development, aging and other variability changes are based on yin and yang in the body, and the yin and yang of the human body must be in a relatively balanced state.In the middle, the viscera, yin and yang qi and blood balance, the human body can maintain normal physiological activities, and the life can be prolonged.
“Impery Heaven” is further eliminated: “Yin Pingyang secret, the spirit is ruled; Yin and Yang are separated from the enemy, and the essence is absolutely.
, that is to say, the yin and yang in the body are peaceful, and the balance between the yin and the yang is maintained, and the human body can not be invaded by the evil spirits, stay healthy and disease-free, and spend its days.
After middle-aged people: the balance of yin and yang in the body gradually becomes imbalanced, and the balance between the body and the external environment is destroyed, which damages health, is prone to disease, and is prone to decline.
For example, in the Tang Dynasty, the drug king Sun Sizhen said in the “Qianjin Yaofang”: “If you have more than 50 people, the yang is weak, the damage is dying, the heart is fading, and the loss is 0.”As the age grows, the yang is getting hurt.
The yang is insufficient, the yin is naturally partial, the balance between yin and yang is gradually affected, and aging is gradually formed. If the yin and yang are separated, the life of the person will reach the end.
(B) qi and blood disorders The body’s gas and blood are prevalent in the whole body, which is the material basis for the physiological activities of all organs and organs such as organs, meridians and the like.
The history of health experts attaches great importance to the relationship between blood and human health, and believes that the filling and reconciliation, the party is not sick, and prolongs life.
Long-lived old people are mostly “five dirty, bloody and tune, . the trip of Rongwei, without losing its usual, . so long.
“If the blood is abnormal, it will inevitably affect the various physiological functions of the body, leading to the occurrence of disease.
So “I ask?”
The theory of Tiaojing said: “The blood is not harmonious, and all diseases are born.”
“The gas belongs to the yang, the blood belongs to the yin, and the relationship between the two, the yin and yang of the female mouth, are interdependent and mutually useful.
Qi plays a role in promoting blood, warming, metaplasia, and phasing; blood has the effect of supporting and carrying.
Therefore, the false decline of the gas and the abnormality of the ascending and descending will inevitably affect the blood.
“Comment on the theory of virtual reality” pointed out: “The essence of the gas is virtual.
“The qi deficiency means that blood is not biochemical, blood will be reduced by it, qi deficiency is promoted, and the function of Wen 减弱 is weakened, and blood will be stagnated.
Similarly, in the blood deficiency and blood running disorders will also affect the gas.
If the blood is imaginary, then the qi will also decrease; if bloody, the qi will also stagnate.
In the middle-aged and elderly people, the blood and blood deficiency and decay of blood, and the function of qi and blood interaction decline, the support of meridians, muscles, muscles, and skin is weakened, resulting in body thinness, palpitations, insomnia, inconvenient movement, limb numbness., dry skin, fatigue and other aging performance.
(3) Dirty dysfunction.
Kidney Qi Deficiency The motherland believes that the kidney has a “congenital essence”, which is the basis of the viscera, yin and yang, the source of life, so it is called “the kidney is the innate.”
Kidney gas is the key factor in determining the strength and weakness of the human body.
“The ancient naive theory” pointed out: “Husband is eight years old, kidney is solid, and long teeth are hard; twenty-eight kidneys are full of gas, Tianzhu is, fine gas spills, yin and yang, so can have children; three eight kidneys average, muscles and musclesStrong: four or eight muscles are prosperous, muscles are full; five or eight kidneys are qi, and sputum is sputum.
This is a very clear explanation of the rise and fall of kidney gas, which determines the strength and weakness of human beings and the length of life.
The so-called “kidney is the birth of nature”, the motherland medicine refers to two aspects.
One is the essence of congenital, the second is the essence of the day after tomorrow.
Congenital essence is the innate talent.
Zhang Jingyue pointed out: “With the words of the people, the congenital and strong people live longer, and the day after tomorrow is weak.
“If the congenital endowment inherited from the parents is insufficient, it will naturally form a variety of genetic diseases and damage health. It is easy to die, premature aging, and difficult to live longer.”
The essence of the day after tomorrow is pointed out after birth.It is derived from the diet, the essence of the water valley produced by the function of the spleen and stomach, and the essence of the metaplasia in the physiological activities of the viscera, which are hidden in the kidney through the remaining part of the metabolic balance.
Such as “Su asked?
According to the ancient naive theory: . the kidney is the main water, and it is hidden by the essence of the internal organs.
“The essence of the kidney is the root of a yang, inside the true yin, true yang, there is a balance of water and liquid in the body, gas to coordinate breathing; the main bone marrow and the brain, Ronghua in hair and other functions.
The young and middle-aged kidneys are full of vitality and vitality; the kidneys are debilitating, the functions of the internal organs are also reduced, and people become old, or prematurely dying. If they develop to the depletion of kidney essence, they cannot reproduce yin and yang.When the organs are dirty, the filth is empty and the sky will be exhausted.
Spleen and stomach deficiency The impact of congenital endowment on life expectancy is important, and the effects of acquired care on life and aging cannot be ignored.
For example, “Jing Yue Quanshu @传忠录” said: “He has been born since his birth, but he believes that the day after tomorrow is the foundation of life.
That is to say, the adjustment of diet, the arrangement of living, the adjustment of mental emotions, the physical exercise of physical form, the adjustment of work and rest, the adaptation of the four-season climate, all these factors of day-to-day conditioning, and the strength and weakness of the human body, the rise and fall, life夭 is closely related.
Disorders in any aspect can lead to premature aging and affect longevity.
Among various causes of aging, spleen and stomach deficiency is an important factor.
The spleen and stomach are the foundation of the day after tomorrow. The spleen has the function of transporting water and valleys, transporting fine cloth, and taking the blood.
The spleen is a yin, with a scent of hair, and it is a combination of water and fire.
The stomach is a kind of yang soil, which can make “the six 腑 腑 谷, 津 液 布 , , , , 津 津 津 津 津 。 。
In the spleen and stomach, the main organs of the digestive system, the continuation of the life activities of the body and the biochemistry of the blood and body fluids are all subtle in the spleen and stomach. Therefore, the spleen and stomach are the source of qi and blood.
“Lingshu” five-flavored articles: “The internal organs are all suffocating in the stomach.
Zhang Jingyue, a famous doctor of the Ming Dynasty, pointed out: “The stomach is strong, the stomach is weak, the stomach is born, and the stomach is dead. It is the health care family that must take the spleen and stomach first.”
If the injury is caused by the diet, the spleen and stomach are weak, the source of biochemistry is insufficient, the innate kidney essence can not be nourished, the viscera is also lost, and the human body cannot grow normally, so it is prone to aging.
As Li Shizhen pointed out in the “Compendium of Materia Medica”, if the spleen and stomach reconcile, then “the vitality is followed, the liquid phase is formed, the god is self-generated, and the long-term is resistant to the old.”.
Otherwise, it may be “in the end”.
It can be seen that the spleen and stomach are important in the longevity of life.
Heart Deficiency Heart is the foundation of the monarch, the main god, the main blood, the heart can transform the blood, and the blood vessels are closely connected, is the master of life activities.
“Nei Jing” is called “the Lord of the Five Commandments”.
Under the guidance of the heart, the organs are coordinated to maintain the normal function of the human body, in order to be healthy and longevity, and the elderly have various aging manifestations due to the decline of the heart.
The “Big Pension Case” pointed out that when the age of 50 is over, “the heart is gradually fading, forgetting before and losing, and staying indulge, and the evaluation is not satisfactory.”
“Lingshutianian” Day: “Sixty years old, the heart begins to decline, bitter and sad, bloody slack, so it is good.”
“The heart is not good, the lack of energy, so often heart and shortness of breath, face color. Pale, body thin; heart Tibetan God, the main god, that is, spiritual consciousness activities are dominated by the heart.
When the heart is weak, there will be deafness.
If God does not keep the house, then forgetfulness and insomnia, and words are wrong.
Heart blood, heart qi, blood circulation disorder, qi deficiency and blood stasis is the main pathogenesis of chest pain, stroke and other diseases, threatening the elderly life, pale and white, is also a sign of aging.
Liver fatigue The main liver is venting, the main ribs, open to the eyes, for the dirty of the blood.
In ancient times, there was a saying that “people are moving to the liver.”
The liver gas is up, the air machine is smooth, the venting and blood storage function is normal, then the spirit and emotions have normal regulation, the human movement is static and orderly, the activity is free, the blood and blood run normally without stagnation, which is to maintain the normal physiology of the body.The premise that function does not decline.
From the middle-aged and old age, liver function tends to be weak, liver and wood qi decline, and it becomes the beginning of the dying of the five internal organs with age.
“Lingshutianian” article: “Fifty-year-old, liver gas begins to decline, liver leaves begin to decrease, the beginning of the eye is unknown.”Visual fainting is one of the early reflections of aging changes.”
《素问‘五脏生成篇》说：“肝之合筋也，其荣爪也，肝虚无以营养爪甲，指甲可变脆、变厚；肝气衰，肝阴肝粤不足，肝脏功能减退，Loss of dysfunction, poor air, emotional, digestive, and blood circulation functions can not maintain normal, there will be many related aging performance: suspicious, less joyful, irritable, emotionally unstable, more dreamsHey, less food, less abdominal heating, chest tightness, heartache, weak bones, slow movements, dizziness, dry eyes, vision loss.
It can be seen that liver failure is closely related to aging.
The lungs are weak and the lungs are the ones, the department breathes, the main declares, the descendants, the waterways, and the outer skins.
The ancient naive theory believes that human aging is first manifested in the face and hair.
Such as the woman “five seven, Yangming pulse decline, face start Jiao, began to swear.
Six or seven. The faces are all coke, starting from white.
“Men” May 8 . hair sputum, six eight . face coke, hair white spots.
“The “focal focus” here refers to the wrinkles on the face.
“Beginning” refers to the change of hair.
Changes in facial wrinkles and hair are mainly manifestations of lung qi deficiency.
Because of the lungs, the main fur.
Qi is the driving force of life movement and the material of life activity.
The generation, movement and functional activities of the human body (the qi, the qi, the qi, the vitality) are closely related to the physiological activities of the lungs.
Only when the function of the lungs is normal, can the human body maintain its vitality and not decline.
若肺气衰虚，则诸气的化生、运行、功能活动均受影响，而肺所敷布的卫气有“温分肉、充皮肤、肥腠理’’的功能，肺气虚衰，卫Insufficient gas, skin, and dysentery, that is, the above changes.
In addition, lung qi deficiency, respiratory vomiting attenuation, water and liquid metabolism disorders, skin loss of charge, phlegm is not solid, then the vitality is degraded, the lack of gas is insufficient, easy to feel the external evils, so that the body is premature aging and easy to lose life.
It is prone to shortness of breath, low fever, unbearable work, often easy to catch a cold, cough and weakness, spontaneous sweating, skin elasticity and other signs of old decline.
Tiannian articles “Cloud: “80 years old, lung qi, detached, so good and wrong.
“It shows that lung deficiency is also closely related to aging.
The medullary brain is the root of Qiheng, the sea of essence.
In the life process of human growth and aging, the brain and spinal cord from development to consumption, brain marrow consumption and gradual progress is one of the leading aging.
“The sea theory” said: “There is more than a cone of sea, but it is light and powerful, since it is too much; when the marrow is insufficient, the brain turns to tinnitus, twists and sorrows, and sees nothing, relax and sleep.”
The eyes of the old and the fainting are dim, deafness, tinnitus, memory loss, unresponsiveness and abnormal language and spirit, and even the same shape as children, are caused by the emptiness of the brain.
(4) Evil wins and loses the “evil” or “evil”, which refers to all pathogenic factors.
Then, the part of the body and the evil in the health of the body is the main one, such as “Su Wen.
“The stabbing theory” said “righteous memory, evil can not be”, “Su asked?
Comment on the theory of fever, saying that “the evil is made up, the gas will be empty.”
The famous evil spirits cause illness, and in the case of insufficient or declining righteousness, it is necessary to take advantage of the virtual person, invade the human body, and develop diseases.
When people reach old age, yin and yang gradually decline, and the five internal organs become imaginary. Various physiological functions gradually tend to decline, prone to stagnation, easy to hurt seven emotions, and susceptible to external evils.
At this time, the body is “evil and prevailing.”
If you are weak and weak, you can show weakness, decline and lack of performance, such as tiredness, tired face, short face, shortness of breath, spontaneous sweating, or five upsets, or chills, cold, weak and so on.The performance of the imaginary.
If the evil spirits are flaming, the body’s ability to resist disease and evil is low, and the pathogenic effect of evil spirits and its further development cannot be stopped. The lack of blood and yin and yang is exhausted, and the condition gradually deteriorates and worsens.
If the righteousness is exhausted, the evil spirits are monotonous, the physiological function of the body is weak, and the yin and yang are separated, the life activities of the body are also terminated and died.
(5) Fine decay, gas consumption, and God-injury. The motherland believes that fineness is innate, and it is innate, the source of human life.
It is produced by the yin and the five organs are fine; the house is the house of the gods, the spirit is the spirit, the accumulation can be used to make the gods, and the gods can grow up forever; the maintenance of the gods is refined by the gods, and the gathering is strong and strong.The decline is weak, the gods are born, and the gods die.
You can live longer and concentrate.
Fine, qi, and god are the most precious things of the human body. The life of human beings originates from the essence, the maintenance of life depends on the qi, and the phenomenon of life is the god, called the “three treasures” of the human body.
Fine, qi, and God are interdependent, mutual resources, mutual use, and prosperity.
All doctors in the past thought that they were full of enthusiasm and qi, and that God is a guarantee of health; fine decay, gas consumption, and God’s injury are the root causes of aging.
Tao Hongjing’s collection of the early health literature “Nature Endowment Record”?
The teachings of the article say: “The nature of the gods and the birth of the gods, the shape of the people are also born, the use of the gods is exhausted, the shape of the big labor is embarrassing.
“It is also pointed out: “The Taoist, the gas is also good, the gas is the way, the way is long; the god, the fine, the essence is the god, the god is the longevity; the essence, the blood of the river, the bones of the bonesGod also.
The bones are dry and the bones are dead.
“It can be seen that the three elements of essence, vitality and sacredness are the most important material basis for human life activities. “There is temperament in the exquisiteness of the qi,” and “the evil is in the air, and its qi will be imaginary.” These descriptions of the ancients indicate whether the human body is weak or not.If you are not careful, you will be easily guilty of evil, and you will be sick and premature.
Paying attention to health and anti-decay can promote the mutual benefit of Jing, Qi and Shen, and achieve the effect of accumulating vitality, nourishing the gods, strengthening the spirit, and being less susceptible to disease.
Fine, tied to the kidney, can qi and sigh; gas, from the lungs, is the root of biochemistry; God, to the heart, the master of life, the essence of essence.
Precise, sturdy, and prosperous, can delay aging, health and longevity, and achieve “shape and spirit, and end the day.”
“The ancient naive theory”) exhaustion, venting, divorced, is the cause of premature aging.
Any internal or external factors that damage fineness, injury, and labor can accelerate aging and reduce life expectancy.
Gushen Baojing, Yangqi Shenshen can guarantee health and prolong life.
(6) The disease and aging of the elderly began in middle and old age, and the incidence of many diseases has increased significantly, such as coronary heart disease, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, diabetes, stroke and other cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, tumors, etc.It is related to worsening the decline.
The motherland medicine believes that the occurrence of diseases in middle-aged and old people is mostly caused by physical weakness and weakening of disease resistance.
“Virtual” is especially prominent for middle-aged and elderly people. Therefore, one of the characteristics of common middle-aged and old-age diseases is “Zhengxu”.
Because the middle-aged and the elderly are lacking in qi, Yin can not be kept inside, Yang can not be kept outside, the ability to resist disease is weakened, and after suffering evil, often the old evil has not gone, the new evil has arrived.
The evil spirits can not be settled, the new evils, the old evils can not be separated from each other, so there are many people who have been sick for a long time and have many chronic diseases. Therefore, the disease is more serious in middle-aged and elderly patients.
In addition, due to physical weakness, the disease becomes more and more imaginary, and there is a disease everywhere and all diseases are everywhere. The whole body is visceral, qi and yin and yang are dysfunctional, the virtual and the real are mixed, the cold and the heat are staggered, and even multiple organs and multiple systemic lesions are formed.Another feature of geriatric disease.
In summary, the five internal organs are the root cause of human aging.
Positive deficiency is prone to aging, aging is prone to disease, and disease accelerates aging.
Therefore, the middle-aged and elderly people have a statement that “there is nothing but a wind and a candle, and it is easy to attack.”
Therefore, it is an important measure to resist the old and prolong life by eliminating disease and evil, actively preventing and treating diseases.
