Would you like to maintain youthful vitality into your elder years and skip the dramatic mid-life health decline that naturally occurs when both men and women have a significant reduction in their reproductive hormone levels?  Modern Medicine offers hormone replacement therapy to help some people ease into old age, but evidence has shown there are many side effects and risks that may outweigh the gains for those who do not want to gamble with their health.

Fortunately for those who truly cherish their health and life, the Ancient Taoists Masters Secrets to potentially reverse, prevent or delay the onset of Menopause and Low Testosterone (or Andropause) are available to you from Yi Ren Qigong Training.  Yi Ren Qigong can help you to naturally maintain and transform your health, energy levels and reproductive hormones. This can make it possible to prolong your youthful vitality and to help you obtain longevity with robust internal energies, strength and peace throughout.

Symptoms of female hormone imbalance

  • Acne or oily skin
  • Bloating
  • Bone loss
  • Decreased fertility
  • Depression
  • Excess facial and body hair
  • Hot flashes
  • Heavy or painful periods
  • Irregular periods
  • Irritability
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Loss of scalp hair

Menopause and Low Testosterone is usually caused by a gradual decline of internal energies and energy systems of the body. This results in a weakened reproductive system and lower production of reproductive energies and hormones.  This is similar to the premature deterioration of a car that is not well maintained and regularly serviced.  Chinese Medicine believes women reach their peak strength at the age of 28 and men at the age of 32.  Then both sexes energies gradually weaken as the years pass, because they are leaking vital energy. By the time they are in their late 40s or mid 50s both sexes internal energies will commonly degrade to the point that their reproductive energies are significantly compromised. This will result in the body and mind getting weaker and initiate the process of growing old.1

There are many health complications related to the process of mid-life change. These include the glands not working at an optimal level resulting, in lower hormone production and the depletion of vital internal energies.  For instance, women commonly experience hot flashes, irritability, anxiety, loss of scalp hair, excess facial hair, and weak muscles and joints.  While men commonly experience decreased muscular strength, stamina, erectile dysfunction, increased body fat and poor sleep.2 (see attached chart for more details)  All the above symptoms are a clear sign that the body has lost its original power and natural internal energy balance.  If we were to see a young person with all of the above noted health problems, we would feel sorry for that individual and hope he had a way to regain his health and youthful vitality. If you had the choice between living with the aforementioned symptoms and health complications or enjoying your mid-life and beyond, which would you choose?

Yi Ren Qigong can reset the internal energy programs by reorganizing the internal energy systems so a person can gain energy, as opposed to losing energy as he or she ages.  Using our car analogy, this would be like getting your vehicle regularly serviced and well maintained. For some people this would be like getting a major overhaul, including rebuilding the car’s entire engine to transform it from a jalopy to a gem. The energy systems that would be reprogrammed include the reproductive energies and hormones to maintain health and avoid the natural aging process most people experience in their mid life.  Yi Ren Qigong training begins to improve and harmonize our internal energy levels including the functioning of the organs and glands.   There are many key centers and areas of the body that need to be developed to upgrade the whole energy system in a balanced way.

The 3-steps directly related to the development and maintenance of the reproductive system that take place in development of the energy body from levels 1-3 in the Yi Ren Qigong Training:

  1. The activation of the “Power Center” Sacrum related to boosting the energy levels of the reproductive system.

  2. The development of the Reproductive Energy Pathways and reproductive glands which include the Testes/Prostate or Ovaries/Uterus.
  3. Reversing the energy flow of the reproductive energies from outward to inward. This will allow the body to digest more of its reproductive energies for upgrading our energy levels that can be used for healing, personal growth and spiritual development, just like our energy system was when we were children.

You may be asking yourself is it really possible to reset and enhance my internal energies and postpone or prevent Menopause or Low Testosterone?  I believe the answer is yes.   When I first began this training at the age of 30 my body was prematurely worn down, weak and exhausted—I felt like an exhausted broken down old-man stuck in a young-man’s body.  Yi Ren Qigong has allowed me to rebuild my once broken down mind and body.  A major key to the strengthening and healing of my body has been the empowering of my reproductive system and increased levels of reproductive hormones as a result of my Qigong training.  A process that could be described as second puberty or adult puberty lead to a slight deepening of my voice, increased facial hair, a boosting of my reproductive system and reproductive system aliveness like I had as a teenager.  The above noted changes were important to help me become more masculine, but the real long term benefits from my upgraded reproductive system is the increased regeneration power my body now has for greater healing, vitality, longevity, and development for my life.

I also notice sometimes during my qigong practice that I can feel the reproductive glands are very alive, active and can sense the energy flow backward into my body and then circulate to other areas of my body like my organs, bones, fascia, and muscles for healing and tonification.  This is described as the reverse energy flow in Taoism—so one can be like a child again.  Like the energy flow of babies and kids before reaching puberty.  That gives children the amazing power to physically and mentally grow and develop.

To date I have had numerous male and female students with ages ranging from Teens to 70s that have significantly increased their internal strength, vitality and energies.  I have visually watched students reverse their biological age and heard umpteen testimonials related to their healing and health benefits related to reproductive hormone imbalance symptoms.
