disease, the NUMBER ONE killer in the United States, causing approximately one
million deaths each year. In fact, one in two people you will die from
cardiovascular disease every 33 seconds. Certain aspects of cardiovascular
disease as well as a number of costly and painful surgeries could be avoided
each year could be by preventive care, dietary change, colon cleanse, herbal
remedy, Chi-Gong breathing exercise and lifestyle changes. The proverbial
"ounce of prevention" can work wonders when compare to the "pounds of
cure" offered by today's medical community.
American Heart Association estimates that the total cost of cardiovascular
diseases in 1996 was $151.3
billion. An estimated 485,000 coronary artery bypass surgeries were performed
in 1993, with 73% of men and 47% of patients under the age of 65. Only
5 to 10 % of 485,000 surgeries are deemed necessary. Bypass surgery generates
more than $ 25 billion a year in medical revenue, with an average surgery cost
of over $ 50,000.
disease from the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
The heart is full of love, healing energy
human circulatory system is comprised of the heart, microcirculatory system,
lymphatic system, and the blood
vessels. Besides the physical heart through hemoglobin carrying abundant
oxygen, our spiritual heart, predominated by the red light energy, is full of
love and compassion (fire warming energy), which carries the most powerful
healing energy. Godly love can cast off the fear (chill energy). By love, you can touch and heal
people through laying the hands upon people, praying, singing, hugging,
visualizing the person you would like to heal..
The heart, a strong emperor that rules the whole body, rarely
From TCM perspective, the heart is depicted as a
monarch who oversees, rules the affairs of a nation, just as the heart takes
proactive role, ordering hormone secretion of hormones to supply and regulate
body activities, and coping with the emergencies. When the heart makes a
motion, the rest of the body are accelerated to echo the heart's desire. As
a king, the heart has tremendous vitality to resist various pathogens, rarely
gets sick. When the heart is sick, it is due to weakness of the other organs,
which gradually encumber, overload, and wear out the heart causing sickness.
Most of the time, the underlying root cause of the cardiovascular disease is
not directly related to the heart, but rather the kidneys, stomach, liver,
autonomic nervous system, hormone imbalance, etc. There are many clinical
manifestations of heart disease, and it is essential for doctors to
differentiate various syndromes in order to identify the root causes of a
physical heart problem before treatment.
example, chest pain could be attributed to pleura infection, pneumonia,
coronary artery blockage, phlegm in the epicardia, tooth infection due to
amalgam filling, liver / stomach / spleen / kidney / heart/ lung meridian
blockage, adrenal stress leading to blood clots, fungal or viral infection,
anger or broken heart (emotional toxins), woman's underwire brassiere,
reflux, esophagus cancer, lung cancer, fibromyalgia, chronic
fatigue, smoking, alcohol, sport injury, costal cartilage fracture, etc. When
doctors treat just the symptoms
of heart disease such as chest pain without understanding the underlying root
cause of chest, both the doctors
and the patients will be frustrated in the long run.
In contrast to the western medical views, heart
activities such as dilation/contraction, heart beat, blood pressure, mitral
valve action and cardiac outputs are passively determined by
aldosterone-angiotensin, epinephrine, blood cholesterol levels, clotting,
obesity, caffeine, smoking, and life style.
III. The heart fulfills its kingship
via the blood vessels and fourteen meridian
The blood vessels as a loop network, are rooted in, and
constantly draw blood supply from the heart. By means of a broad network of
blood vessels, the heart is able to nourish the body with oxygen, water,
nutrients, light energy. The way in which the heart regulates biofeedback of
the body is by sending the messages via fourteen-meridians pathways crossing
through every facet of the body: the
brain, the eyes, four extremities, the skin, the kidneys, the liver, the
lungs, and among others. In contrast to the conventional western medicine, TCM
believes it is the heart that is the seat of intellectual and spiritual
matters rather than the brain.
heart, being an impetus to the viscera, plays a supreme role in our physical
and spiritual health. When the heart is over-stressed by the other organs, all
other organs and systems will be further
weakened and the system energy suddenly plummets. Therefore, it is with a sense of urgency
that the underlying root cause of a heart problem be identified first and
treated. In this way, the body
energy can be restored quickly and negative energy between the heart and other
organs can be corrected.
Autonomic Nervous System is primarily rooted in the heart and the liver
practitioners has found that the central nervous system does not function
alone; it is primarily rooted in and
closely related to the heart and liver. An unhealthy heart can trigger neurologic
dysfunction such as:
or sore all over the body
(Attention Deficiency Dis.)
and purulent stool
amnesia or short term memory loss
restlessness or wake up easily during the night
deficiency (Addison's like syndromes)
alternate with diarrhea
symptom of childhood)
addition, TCM practitioners believe that the small intestines are related to
the heart as a husband-wife relationship. To insert a needle onto the
acupuncture points in the small intestine meridian, along with the auricular
small intestine point, prostate point, and coronary artery point can enhance
the release of prostaglandin (PG) and dilation of coronary arteries;
therefore, chest pain, palpitation, and other cardiac symptoms are relieved.
Frequently Asked Questions
the cardiac muscles so easily get tired?
The heart like a pump, works day and night to insure the brain and the body
have abundant oxygen
and energy to accommodate activities required. Lacking of adequate energy, the
can not contract and dilate in a regular rhythm. The heart's energy
comes from an adequate supply of oxygen carried by the hemoglobin in the red
blood cells through inhalation. Shallow breathing and inadequate
blood supply (anemia) can cause cardiac disease.
is the primary fuel in which to kindle oxidation and produce ATP energy. When
blood cells short of oxygen and energy, they
are like flat tires, difficult to spin and move. Deep breathing infuses flat
cardiac blood cells with abundant
oxygen(air) and energy; the 'aired' blood cells are no longer clotted or bumped each other but able to flow freely. As cardiac
cells are aired, ballooned, and flow freely, ample space is created between
the cells to carry additional oxygen, which then aids circulation.
energy such as anger, worry, fear, broken heart and hatred can block and drain
cardiac energy and cause heart disease. Human
virtues such as meekness, humbleness (live a lowly life), forgiving others
before the sun sets, loving kindness, serving people, and live a joyful and
peaceful life are the best medicine for a vital heart.
factors to affect the blood supply and blood circulation?
oxygen and energy are the impetus to:
breakdown. Much of this fat
is stored in the abdomen, buttocks and the liver.
of anions (negative charged electricity) with cations (positive charged
electricity) within the tissues to produce strong magnetic forces and
promote correct energy spin and blood circulation.
and balance the body dissension (flow down) and ascension (flow up)
energy. Circulation requires two forces:
force flowing down. The end of the dissension force is the beginning of the
force flowing up. The end of the ascension force is the beginning of the
primarily led by the lung, the heart, stomach, and colon flows down to the
body for nourishment and detoxification whereas the ascension energy led by
the kidneys, the liver, and spleen flows up for the nutrition reutilization,
just as the earth's water, via the sun light evaporates to the clouds and
falls back to the earth as rain when it reaches the dew point (the end of the
earth's ascended water is the beginning of descended rain). Similarly,
dissension energy led by the lung and ascension energy led by the kidneys are
intersected in the spleen/pancreas and stomach, a midpoint and landmark for
balance, harmony and vital heart health. Sluggish digestion and/or
assimilation can cause sleep disorder, weight gain, fatigue and heart
Traditional Chinese Medicine
(TCM) practitioners also find that the energy meridian pathway is opposite to
the blood circulation pathway. The
blood circulation starts from the left side of the body flowing down, then,
flows back via the right side of the body. The energy meridian pathway starts
from the right side of the body flowing down, then, flows back via the left
side of the body. The energy and blood circulation pathways are intersected at
the midpoint, located in the spleen/ pancreas, and stomach area.
The reason that most of
chronic diseases originate from a functional disorder of spleen/ pancreas and
stomach is because the sluggish circulation and energetic blockage in the
abdomen area while energy is flowing from the heart (one of descending forces)
to the kidneys (one of ascending force) and back to the heart.
The venous blood in the kidneys requires abundant ATP and fire heat in
the heart so that it can heat (flow) up to the liver and back to the heart,
lung and brain. Likewise, the heart requires abundant oxygen (a heavy
molecule) to bond with hemoglobin so that the oxygen rich blood in the heart
can flow down (heavy things flow down) to the stomach, colon, kidneys and
other tissues for nourishment. Deep inhalation and exhalation resolves oxygen
deficiency in the lung and heart area.
a nutshell, without 'heart fire' to heat the kidneys, the kidneys can not
bring the venous blood up to the liver, the heart, the lungs and the
brain. Only through a balanced dissension energy and ascension energy can
energetic and the blood circulation be correctly maintained.
can I direct my mind (thoughts) to manipulate the electromagnetic flow in the
heart, and regenerate
cardiac blood cells?
Cardiac blood cells carry a relatively high
electromagnetic frequency to regulate the contraction and dilation of the heart. The
heart is a "fire" oriented organ as engine and is primarily dominated by
red light energy resulting from the oxidized ferritin bonding with red blood
cells. Excessive oxidation of the
cardiac blood cells resulting from anxiety, fretting, frustration, anger,
trying to please others, and other emotional pressure generate excessive fire
heat so called free radicals. This excessive oxidation elevates regional blood
temperature, damages heart tissue, causes the neoplasia or degeneration of the
heart function, night sweats, oral ulcers, gum/tooth infection, "fire"
eyes, headaches, allergies, high blood pressure, neck/shoulder pain, coronary
artery blockage and stroke.
Reverse breathing techniques can effectively lower the
heart's high electromagnetic frequency, regulate heart beat, and provide
homeostasis for the regeneration of damaged heart cells.
How the dental infection or mercury filling can cause heart
sides of retromolars (behind the wisdom tooth) are connected to:
heart meridian pathway;
small intestine meridian pathway and
nerves (the wide distribution of the nerve arising from the side of the
medulla oblongata, passing down to supply the pharynx, larynx, trachea,
lungs, heart, and he gastrointestinal tract as far as the left splenic
The teeth infection resulting from necrosis of the
wisdom tooth, cavities, root canal or periodontal disease can directly ripple
through the whole body via the energetic meridian pathways and the vagus nerve
causing the cancer, extreme fatigue, disorder of the autonomic nervous,
immune, lymphatic system, hormonal secretion, pulmonary and circulatory dilation/contraction, gastric churning,
and food assimilation.
crack of mercury filling allows the foods to reside in the cavities causing
chronic teeth infection. Aged mercury filling may release toxic mercurial
vapors into saliva when chewing the foods or doing speaking. Toxic mercurial
vapors mixed with saliva and the foods swallowed into the stomach, small
intestine and colon can cause heart problem, fatigue, poor assimilation,
constipation, reflux, candida, sleep disorder, viral infection, memory loss.
can breast implants cause heart disease?
The rupture of a silicone or saline transplant
and scar tissues can block the energetic and blood
supply to the heart, the lungs, and lymphatic nodes in the carotid
artery and axilliary region causing the chest pain, neck pain, shoulder pain,
and scapular pain.
A Safe Alternative Approach To
Restore The Heart Health
Dr. Ging's confidence in this alternative approach
for heart health is derived from over twenty years experience in integrative medicine and patient
testimonies. He believes: herbal remedy,
nutritional supplements, dietary and lifestyle changes, Chi-Gong breathing
exercise, and the liver/kidney health are essential to restore the heart
health while concurrently balancing high cholesterol, high blood sugar, high
blood pressure, weight gain, and hormonal production. Dr. Ging's herbal
heart formulas complement chelation therapy and the conventional western
medicine. There are no known side
effects when combining his natural herbal formula with pharmaceutical medicine
as long as they are taken first, at least one hour prior to prescription
Heart I, the herbal formulas, developed by Dr. Ging and his
brother, Yu-Ping Cheng are
a combination of Chinese herbs useful for long-term heart disease prevention
and treatment. These balanced formulas, passed down from generation from
generation to generation have been used in China and Taiwan for more than
2,000 years. These formulas have
bee proven effective, with no known side effects, in enhancing energy
metabolism, reducing chest pain, coronary arterial blockage, managing high
cholesterol/triglyceride, balancing high blood pressure and blood sugar
levels, and relieving palpitation/wheezing.
Heart I formulas are the core formulas of the Comprehensive Vital
Heart Program. The Comprehensive Vital Heart Program
includes four ancillary formulas which complement, support, and augment the
Vital Heart I & II formulas, and relieve additional symptoms not
adequately managed by the core formulas.
For patients whose work is highly stressful and
requires high adrenal support, it is recommended that Vital Heart I be taken
regularly for the prevention of heart disease.

a vital life style:
'Reverse Breathing ' Chi Gong exercise all the time
The primary cause of chronic degenerative disease is
excessive consumption of oxygen and deprivation of hydrogen ion. Normal
cells would convert to cancer cells when the depressed oxygen drops below 35%
according to Otto Warburg, Ph. D, who won two Nobel Prizes for discovering the
cytochrome enzymes of oxidative phosphorylation mechanism in 1946 and 1948.
'Reverse Breathing' exercise helps lower high
frequency brain waves to Theda wavelength and insures peaceful nerve
enervation to allow for constant blood flow of oxygen, glucose and nutrients.
The blood stream carries chemical messengers called
hormones, which provide the instructions to cells in many parts of the body.
Most hormones bind to a specific receptor site on the cell membrane that
activates adenyl cyclase. This, in turn, converts ATP into cyclic AMP
(adenosine monophosphate), a second messenger that regulates hundreds of
diverse enzyme processes in living cells. 'Reverse Breathing' Chi Gong
exercise and Herbal Formula developed by Dr. Ging provide abundant energy
facilitating the conversion process of ATP to cyclic AMP.
'Reverse Breathing' can effectively balance pH
along with intake of colloidal minerals and colloidal trace minerals such as
Magnesium, Calcium, Zinc, Selenium, etc. 'Reverse Breathing' C and
minerals act as catalysts to trigger complex enzymatic reactions in the cells.
Enzymes are living protein substances that catalyze biochemical pathways.
regulate complex enzyme processes in living cells, it requires peaceful nerve
enervation, abundant oxygen, cyclic AMP, colloidal minerals performance,
energetic water (minimum of clusters in the water), balanced temperature and
pH value, healthy liver and kidney, and controlled free radical activity.
Practicing 'Reverse Breathing' exercise all the time help you
achieve proper cellular homeostasis.

experience has shown that most people using the Vital Heart I & II
formulas experience less chest pain, easier in breathing, better quality of
sleep, and vital energy within one month. However,
individuals may experience a variety of results.
To Objectively Measure Your Progress?
feel better overall, are more at peace, sleep better, have more energy and
experience no chest pain and water retention in the ankle and abdomen
Choose medical test procedures to confirm progress before, during and
after the Comprehensive
Vital Heart Program. If
chest pain, throat or arm discomfort, shortness of breath, or a tendency toward timidity or nervousness is experienced, a
stress test is in order, preferably with thallium or a two-dimensional
echocardiogram before and after the stress test. This will quantify the
degree of coronary disease. Repeat the test for two or three months. For
additional information regarding the parameters and benefits of a stress
test, consult a physician.
