Yin and Yang, Health and Oriental Diagnosis

Frog_01-1Someone ( a close friend from long ago, actually) called me a sponge; an ugly one but still a sponge.

He went on to say that I kept picking up bits of information about so many different things that he never knew what I was going to say or talk about next.

And, if I am going to be honest, he was and still is right. I love to learn about new things (to me) and old things (that still work) and I consider what I learn as my own personal “Pearls of Wisdom”.

Many years ago (too many to count, honestly) I was into studying different Oriental and Asian ways of life, religions and what seemed to me to be, idiosyncrasies.

Long story short. I got into the whole Yin and Yang thing and this ancient philosophy of maintaining a healthy body and even healing an unhealthy one for a while.

That was a long time ago, and I have kept this kind of information in my mind always. But, just the other day, I read an article written by a fellow HubPage writer, on this subject, that I think should be shared.

So, click on the link below to open page to read this very good article, if you are interested.

I was reading an article on AARP about a large study by Dr. J. Orlich MD and a number of others, confirming that eating a Vegetarian Diet can extend your projected lifespan.

It showed that avoiding Pork, Beef, and even Chicken can reduce early deaths by as much as 12 percent relative to non-vegetarians  And over the six year study, these people also had 19 percent fewer deaths from Heart disease.

Even if you add Seafood and Fish to your Vegetarian-style diet, you still have the same lower chance of early death. Eating these Vegetarian foods with the addition of Seafood’s is similar to a Mediterranean style diet and is in line with similar data on Mediterranean diets.

Interestingly, adding meats, regardless of whether you are a Vegetarian or not did not change the chancel of Cancer occurring.
