¿Qué Tiene que Ver Conmigo? por Teófila Gottfried

¿Qué tiene que ver conmigo lo que dice la Biblia? ¿Sirve en estos días lo que se cuenta allí? ¿No son anticuadas sus enseñanzas? ¿Qué tengo que ver yo con gente que vivió hace dos, cuatro o seis mil años? ¿Es posible aplicar a mi vida algo de lo que dice la Biblia? ¿O los Diez Mandamientos es todo lo que enseña? En tal caso ¿puedo considerarme "buena persona" si los cumplo? Lo que leemos en la Biblia tiene que ver con todos los seres humanos, sean cristianos o judíos, ateos o agnósticos, budistas, musulmanes o adherentes a alguna de las filosofías o nuevas religiones que surgen en el mundo. ¿Por qué?

How Does Acupuncture Work? What Does It Have to Do With Yin Yang Philosophy?


Many Americans suffering from various health problems and who are seeking answers to mysteries in their life are turning to the teachings of yin yang theory. This Chinese philosophical view of life states that there's a force known as "chi" which fills the universe. This energy is believed to have two manifestations that are both opposite and complimentary to each other. According to this Chinese philosophy, yin represents things such as darkness, negativity, the female gender, weakness, and coldness. The opposing yang force represents light, positivity, the male gender, strength, and heat. The two opposing and complimentary forces supposedly coexist in all of the world including every individual inhabitant. Practitioners of acupuncture believe that sickness and disease result when yin and yang are out of balance which obstructs the flow of vital "chi energy". Such teachings are presented to answer the question, "How does acupuncture work?"

Yin yang theory is the Chinese philosophy that forms the base of the practice of kung-fu, acupuncture, and many other arts that have been embraced in the United States. Unfortunately, few Westerners invest the time needed to investigate the teachings of the theory that backs many of the arts and practices from the East. Why is this important? Because although positive physical results are often obtained after receiving acupuncture treatments, strange and negative happenings plague some recipients years after the procedures have been done.

A middle-aged woman suffering from allergies which her doctors failed to bring under control resorted to acupuncture. Amazingly, her allergies disappeared for a period of about eight years and she enjoyed relative good health. However, she suddenly began experiencing health problems for which not even a team of specialists could find a cause or an answer. Her abdomen would swell large enough to give her the appearance of a pregnant woman whose time to give birth was near. The skin would sometimes turn black causing her much discomfort. She submitted to several tests which never revealed the development of cancer or any disease. If her mysterious health problems were being caused by an imbalance or an obstruction in chi energy that flowed through her, why couldn't acupuncture simply restore her health? Sometimes instead of asking, "How does acupuncture work?," one might want to ask if it works at all.

The answer lies in the fact that acupuncture itself is based on the teachings of yin yang theory which have been revealed by science to be false. All falsehood eventually fails those who believe in it and it always comes back to haunt them in various ways. Again, according to yin and yang theory, what is yin (dark, negative, female, cold, weak) will eventually become yang (light, positive, male, hot, strong). Although it's not necessary to know the basic teachings of the Christian Bible to be able to see the error in this Chinese philosophy, the following paraphrase based on the article What Is the Meaning of the Yin and Yang? exposes the deception in yin yang theory:

While it's certain that what's hot (yang) will ultimately cool down (become yin) and may be re-heated again, it's not an inevitability that this will occur. Boiling water can be frozen into ice cubes and then re-heated to boil again, however, this won't occur all of the time. Infants are born in weakness (yin) and if adequately nurtured, will grow strong (yang). As time passes, their strength will fade away as they enter old age, returning them to weakness (yin) again. Nevertheless, they'll never return to strength (yang) in this present world; they'll return to the dust from which they were made. Can it be said that any living creature, plant or animal, was created male (yang), naturally changed into female (yin) and naturally returned to being male (yang) again?

There are real physical and psychological risks involved in receiving acupuncture for any reason. The entire "art" is built on a false foundation that has and will continue to come back to haunt millions of Americans in various ways that they may never connect to former treatments of acupuncture. How does acupuncture work? Many are finally starting to realize that it doesn't.
