Translator’s Note: I received this text as a post on Master Zhao Ming Wang’s Chinese language ‘WeChat’ blog. The post was made by the member called ‘逍遥.木心’ (Xiao Yao Mu Xin) and involves a discussion regarding the recent SARS outbreak in Wuhan. Just as the elderly Buddhist Master Jing Kong (净空) has held a world-wide meditation and chanting session for the victims of SARS – other disciples of the Qiafeng Daoist School of Beijing advocated the boosting of the immune system as a sure method of fighting a disease.

A good doctor can cure a disease – but this can only be achieved by boosting your own immune system – to make it strong!
“Only the body’s own immunity can fight the disease, because our own immune gene chain is sufficient to deal with all known diseases. But why do we still get sick? It is because our immunity is suppressed. The true ancient Chinese medicine is against Medication is used to treat these diseases, but instead aims at restoring the normal order of the human body, unlocking and removing that which suppresses immunity, and then letting an invigorated immunity treat the disease itself. It can also be understood that drugs help the body to cure the disease, not that the drug itself can cure the disease. The inner foundation of the human body, as the field of essential psycho-physical energy, conforms to what the outer human body requires by following the frequency of energy expressed, balances all human energy, and restores a robust biological order to the mind and body. If medication or treatment is used to artificially push the boat along the water, the boat has no inherent power of its own, and this process is naturally hopeless and unfavourable. Once the medicine is withdrawn, the illness returns.”
Our immune system is very smart and agile. Its performance can surpass the world’s fastest processing computer control system, and it protects us 24 hours a day. The blood flow in the body is accelerated in order to send more white blood cells to the battlefield. The stuffy nose and fever we feel are actually signs of a violent attack on a virus. Vomiting is a self-protection reaction when the stomach is weak and its contents cannot be digested. Diarrhoea is the timely discharge of waste from the intestines. Even more amazing is that once the body is infected with a virus, the white blood cells that can deal with the virus – antibodies will remain in the bone marrow forever. When we encounter this virus again, the immune system can respond quickly and save us from suffering.
When you feel lost and desperate, think about the 12 billion cells in the body. Together they build a strong immune system. They are all dedicated to working for you, working with you, fighting for you, and living for you.
