Life on a Wire

On June 15th, 2012, two hundred feet in the air above the roaring waters of Horseshoe Falls, the largest of Niagara Falls, daredevil Nik Wallenda walked 1,500 feet across on a 2 inch wide, tightrope.

His feat was historic. No one has ever crossed Niagara Falls before on a highwire.

33 year old Wallenda endured blinding mists and gusting winds from the powerful Falls below to cross in just 25 minutes.

Even with so many difficulties ahead of and below him, Nik Wallenda shared before the crossing the Falls that he hoped the experience would be “peaceful and relaxing.”

Looking down from 200 feet above the Falls, it’s impossible to imagine even the hint of peace and relaxation! Walking over Niagara Falls is the opposite of peaceful!

Think a second about your own life on a wire – commuting, your job, kid’s activities, family crisis, personal appointments – how often life feels like we are constantly on a wire walking across Niagara Falls, with the waters below roaring and threatening to pull us under.

Can you imagine the storms of life coming at us with hurricane force winds – and then feeling relaxed and at peace?
Restore Your Balance
Remember our philosophy of Body as Doctor? Your body knows what it needs and if you allow it to, it will naturally achieve “total balance” in a way that nothing else can.

Ancient Chinese herbalism teaches us of the Three Treasures, the essential energies that sustain human life.

  • Jing is like the base of a candle, what embodies and makes you who you are.
  • Qi (or Chi) is like the flame of the candle that burns, moving you throughout each day.
  • Shen is like the light from the candle; it is the Spirit and Light you share with the world.

Most of us run on Qi energy, always on the go at full-tilt. When we run out of fuel, we reach for another cup of coffee, soda or candy bar to power through until we collapse at night. Burning your “Chi” is like burning kindling instead of firewood. Kindling burns hot and fast and is gone before you know it. If you have ever suffered burnout, you know firsthand what I’m talking about.

So how do we burn our fire the right way?
We must nourish our Jing energy and Shen spirituality. Over 4000 years ago, the Yellow Emperor, the first of the Qin Dynasty, expended so much energy establishing his dynasty that he became dangerously unbalanced. He sent word to all provinces to find an elixir that would be powerful enough to restore the balance of all three treasures: Jing, Qi and Shen.

This elixir was so valuable and so powerful, it was only available to the Emperor and his court. They called it Righteous Qi.

Emperor’s Ch’i Balances Life – Body, Mind and Spirit
In traditional Chinese medicine, tonic herbs are plants which promote a long, healthy, vibrant, happy life, without any unwanted side effects, even when taken over a long period of time.

These tonic (or superior) herbs are wonderful, healthy super-foods, which benefit our well-being in ways that more common foods do not. They have a protective, balancing, vitalizing quality beyond that of any other herbs, and are generally consumed alongside a well balanced, healthy diet for the purpose of completing our nutritional needs.

Virtually every aspect of a person’s energy system, be it genetic, sexual, emotional, psychic, physical, intellectual, or spiritual, is enhanced when Emperor’s Ch’i is consumed on a daily basis. Digestive functions, cardiovascular, immune, endocrine, reproductive and nervous systems all can be brought into balance by this unique combination of herbs brewed as a highly concentrated tea.

Check out the amazing tonic herbs we use in Emperor’s Ch’i:

Schisandra is revered in Traditional Chinese Medicine because it tonifies all three treasures; Jing, Qi and Shen.

Shisandra has been used as a tonic for anti-aging, anti-fatigue, enhancing fertility and sexuality, improving concentration, precise coordination and focus, enhancing short and long term memory, increases fertility, improves hearing and vision and aids in maintaining a youthful appearance.

It is regarded as a life-prolonging, wisdom enhancing “superior herb” used by Tibetan monks to enhance their inner spiritual power, mental concentration and physical endurance.
Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus), once known as Siberian Ginseng, has been shown to reduce the activation of the adrenal cortex in response to stress. Eleuthero helps to increase physical and mental endurance and helps to improve memory and alertness.
Reishi strengthens immune function while protecting the body against cancer cells and other microbes such as viruses, bacteria and yeasts. Reduces severitiy of allergies and auto-immune disorders. Inhibits histamine release, improves oxygen utilization, improves liver function and stabilizes blood sugar levels.

The Elixir of Immortality
I have often referred to Emperor’s Ch’i as a Spiritual Coca-Cola.

If you were to sit down and create the ultimate elixir, a drink far more powerful than Red Bull or a Starbucks espresso, a spiritual tonic would at the top of the list.

Emperor’s Ch’i is just that – a highly concentrated herbal tonic restoring balance to your life by nourishing all Three Treasures at the same time.
