Live a Long Healthy Life With Taoist Longevity Tonics
The Taoist tradition of using Chinese herbs as an adjunct to dietary practices, meditation and internal exercises, to maintain health and live exceptionally long lives has been written about in both ancient and modern texts. In order to insure a long healthy life, Taoist use herbal formulas daily; to revitalize the whole body, preventing disease, and insuring longevity. In addition to the regular use of Chi tonics, which are considered standard prescriptions, formulas that contain botanical mineral and zoological substances called longevity formulas are also a familiar part of Taoist Health Practices. These exotic formulas were designed to promote wellness and delay the onset of old age and death. These prescriptions, which are also used extensively in traditional Chinese medicine, are considered important adjuncts to Chi tonics. Normally, these anti-aging prescriptions contain more ingredients than Chi tonics, and are used on a regular basis, although not quite as often as Chi tonics. The primary focus of longevity formulas is to promote life-extension by improving the functioning of the five viscera (heart, lungs, spleen, liver, and kidneys) along with improving blood circulation, and supporting Chi tonic formulas in supplementing the vital energy. The most popular methods of preparation for these anti-aging prescriptions are decoction (making tea), herbal syrup, and medicinal wine. Although, here in the western world we have found that powdering the ingredients and adding the powder to 00-capsules or to juice to be a simple and easy form for using the formulas.
Long-term even life-long use is highly recommended.
