I often meet a lot of people who dismiss Chinese medicine because they simply don't understand it or they don't believe it. Or maybe they're just western medicine. Doctors have ah biased for Chinese medicine. But in 2015 Doctor to Yoko received her Nobel price using Chinese medicine material to treat malaria. Now this was a big news in the Chinese medicine field, and we thought some people think that this pseudo science it's not. And we see that, um, Michael Phelps, the Olympic gold medalists, was having these marks on him. Now some of the audience in here might know what these marks are. They're called cupping therapy in Chinese medicine. But with these news and these research in Nobel Price, it should be easier for us to promote Chinese medicine and let people believe in it. However, that's not the case. So what happened? Why are people not believing in it? Why are people still with the symptoms dismissing Chinese venison? My grandfather, Dr Li Fu Chen, was one of the most important and most famous promoter of Chinese medicine and protector of Chinese medicine. He received his masters in engineering from Pittsburgh University, and as a scientist, he always says that anybody who rejects Chinese medicine without understanding it doesn't have the scientific spirit. Now, why are so many people still not believing it? Well, there's a phenomenon called the Don and Cougar effect. What happened is that there's a lot of people who have relaxed in certain knowledge and experience in the field and thinks that they understand more than the people who are who are experts. So. But this is not only occurring in Chinese medicine. These are not only occurring than people who doesn't believe in trains, medicine. Even people who believe in Western medicine have the same problem. Well, it's December right now, and as winter comes, there's a lot of people who gets cold or flu, especially in Asia. A lot of people would ask your doctor to prescribe antibiotics. However, a lot of people don't know that antibiotics doesn't treat virus. They only treat bacteria. But I always meet people and say, Hey, you know what? I need antibiotics and they were even mock me and say, You understand, I had experience where antibiotics treat me and cure my flu, our gold. So these also these people also falls into that phenomenon that the authentic terrific. So how do we obtained the actual knowledge? Well, people who believe in things believe in true or false information. But people who have knowledge are based on fax. Now, how do we obtain knowledge? How do we obtain truth? Well, I also teach Confucianism, and I look back to our ancient Chinese philosophy and the teachings of Confucius. And I found out that, you know, we can conclude with five questions when we don't wanna obtain knowledge is the first question would be Have you collected your information? Meticulous? Well, what does that mean by my meticulous means in hospice? Thorough? Well, it takes time. And how do we collect information? Usually we collected information from seeing, listening, hearing, tasting and touching. But one of the most important thing is really vast amount of reading will get us information, and by reading enough immigration, we were actually learn from older people other people's experience and avoid wrongdoing. However, there are less and less people re now you will be surprised. In America, less people are spending less and less time on what they are interested. Personal interest? Well, if they were even spend time on their personal interests, what they even re other stuff. What's even more surprising, because we are in Taiwan right now is that 40% of people in Taiwan I haven't read a single book in the year of 2018. So how would you obtain any kind of knowledge with a reading? Even worse, I'm sure that you guys audience have probably done it or I've done it sometimes is to read a newspaper with only the title, but never really read what the content this and how would you know? The content matches the title, so reading is a very, very important thing for us. The first step, the second question news. Have we asked the relative question? Well, we should ask questions all the time and asking question is for us to find out more and more things. Why do we ask questions? First is because if we don't know anything, that's why we ask question. Second is we know some things but want to know more. So we asked the third is we asked enough? But one of no more details. We still ask what you would think that we asked a lot of questions that you know, that kids asked 300 questions a day nearly. But as we grow up as adults, we don't ask them as much questions anymore. Why? Well, mainly because we don't bother to ask. And the worst part is when I go on to Facebook or any kind of social media, I would post something and people would ask, What is it? And I say, Google it. You could google yourself without asking me First. You could ask these questions. You're so and I found out that 44 things people don't do. They don't ask questions out of these four questions for reasons one is laziness. We just are lazy to ask questions. I don't want to think about it. I don't wanna even use my brain. Second is didn't prepare anything they didn't read before hands. They don't know what. They don't know what they're talking about. They don't ask him. The 3rd 1 is afraid of embarrassment. There are people who don't ask questions, especially in Asia, because they are afraid that they're showing they don't understand what they don't know, and the last one is They just don't know how to ask the question. So asking question for us is very important, because only by asking we would gnome or were thinking more therefore asking us if we ask the question, ask the relative profession is very important. Next question is, have we done deliberation? Have you done elaboration? Have the inference? This Is this the part where you gather the information? You start asking questions and then you organized them. You systematized them, and this is the part where you start having hypothesis. But the thing is, you would think, Well, it's simple. It sounds like a simple, but when you get to a higher degree of knowledge, it's harder. You look at these pictures in Chinese medicine and you think, Wow, what the hell is this? Does this make any sense? Well, when I first encountered Chinese medicine, it's very hard for me to understand it. But as I start reading and I start asking questions and start organizing them, it becomes a very systematic thing and start to understand them easily. If you ask if you use a good language to explain them, an engineer would be easier to understand. Just like I like my grandfather. So thinking and organizing is very important. The 4th 1 The fourth question is, Have you done differentiation? And have you done the judgment that you judge the sources that you get the information? A lot of times we get information, but we don't know that the information was biased or prejudice or even ourselves is bias. And why is that a problem? Because we always try to find things that we like, where things that can prove us right or prove others wrong. And that would become a problem. That is not a neutral way to look at things and only with neutral stuff neutral way off. Looking at things with all aspects, with all angles, you'll be able to get the real truth so we don't want We want everything to be balance, just like the Chinese philosophy. So we have to ask ourselves all the information we gathered bias or, uh, prejudice, because we always get excuses to look at the bias stuff. Well, we look at the information. Is it? Well, that is the reason. The reason why he wrote this is because of this. We find excuses for the information we get, and sometimes we just don't refuse to believe things. Just like some people I meet in Chinese medicine, they just simply don't want to believe that no matter how you want to explain to them and there's no reason for it. And if you don't believe in, if you don't want to believe into something, you're not open to any kind of new information and not willing to make any mistake is also because, in Chinese word face, you don't want to lose face, because if you ask certain questions if you find out the information is not, uh, what you thought might be embarrassed. But the last one, the most important one is a bandwagon effect where people around you all believe the same thing and therefore you just kind of follow them and you don't district distinguish yourself from their knowledge. Just believe in what everybody else says. That becomes a problem. So being be able to differentiate and judge where the information comes from is very important. Lastly, is have you practiced an experiment? Well, you gather all the information from reading from asking from thinking okay from differentiating. But you verify if they're true or not, doesn't work or not. So we have to verify a lot of things. Think about it. I can teach you. I can tell you how to swim. I can't tell you how to make a stroke. I can have you howto kick your legs. But without going into the water, you'll never learn how to swim the same thing. Sure like to give you two examples. Ah, very, very awesome And very impressive case studies where Ike encounter personally in Chinese medicine. These people didn't unbelieving Chinese medicine that all But after they give it a try that changed your life. The first person was a dentist from Pilot. She was diagnosed in May this year with hyperthyroidism and you can see the ah, the white blood cell count. The liver number and the T three teeth for hormone are off the charts off the roof. Look at the ah Mei. So she was a dentist. She studied Western medicine and I convinced her to try Chinese medicine. She said Yes, you try it. And if anybody who knows ah hyper thyroid is that you have to take no drugs for almost years to become normal. So we start treating her and in we start treating her at end of June and at end of July. Her numbers are starting to come down, but still high. But at the mid October, her numbers are all normal within four months, using Chinese medicine without a single pill. Westernised, the 2nd 1 I wantto chair is a friend of mine. Was very, very, uh Got into accident Really bad. Broke all his limbs. He had his vertebra. He had his spine broke. Okay, Severed. You can see the in the picture. And he was a new wheelchair or four month, three years with a urinal bag. And I convinced him to try Chinese medicine using special acupuncture. You can even see the scars on his back from the surgeries. Doctors basically told him that it's gone and this is him now. Within four months of treatment, you can move, can almost you can walk now. It's very impressive. And they all believe in Chinese medicine now. So if you haven't really experiment anything, you wouldn't know anything about Chinese. So being having open heart about it's very important. So the word she wouldn't is the same word as knowledge of English. The words tree, it is actually learned the work wouldn't is asked the literal means. I learned to ask and ask to learn. But besides all that, the most important thing for us is you had to know what is what you know already and what you don't know. And Confucius says that you know what you know. You realized what you don't know and that is the true knowledge. And so therefore we need tohave humility and motivation always for us to do this, to learn more. And so therefore, we will continue to learn to ask and continue to ask to learn Thank you very much on Victor.
