Sit Like A Tortoise, Sleep Like A Dog-256 Year Old Man Reveals Secrets To Longevity Before He Died
Herb cleaning and live plant food work wonders.
To break Li Ching-mark, Yuen’s all living centenarians must live for at least another hundred years. This man lived for a whopping 256 years!
This is a real story that has been investigated by academics and journalists! According to a 1930 New York Times post, Chengdu University Professor Wu Chung-Chieh discovered Chinese Empire government records from 1827, in which Li Ching-Yuen was congratulated on his happy 150th birthday, as well as documents from 1877, in which he was already congratulated on his 200th anniversary.
The majority of the elderly who lived next door to Li Yuen remembered how even their grandfathers told them that he knew him from their youth, but he was already an adult man at the time, according to a 1928 New York Times journalist.
Wu Chung-chieh, a Chengdu University professor, discovered Imperial Chinese government records from 1827 congratulating Li Ching-Yuen on his 150th birthday, and later documents congratulating him on his 200th birthday in 1877, according to a 1930 New York Times post. Many of the old men in Li’s neighborhood said that their grandfathers knew him when they were boys, and that he was a grown man at the time, according to a New York Times correspondent in 1928.
His Long-Term Health Secret:
Li was asked what his longevity key was. “Keep a quiet spirit, sit like a tortoise, walk briskly like a pigeon, and sleep like a dog,” he replied. These were Li’s words of wisdom to Wu Pei-fu, the warlord, who invited Li into his home to learn the secret of living a very long life.
Long hours of meditation, a special diet, and a quiet life in his birthplace, the province of Szechwan, where he gathered and studied herbs, were said to be the keys to his longevity. It is thought that it was mostly due to his rigid discipline and the manner in which he carried out his discipline.
Li Ching-story Yuen’s is a fascinating one.
From the age of ten, Li Ching-Yuen worked as a herbalist, gathering herbs such as Lingzi, goji berry, wild ginseng, he shou wu, and Gotu kola from China’s mountain ranges. He also traveled to Kansu, Sansi, Tibet, Annam Siam, and Manchuria on a regular basis to collect herbs and create concoctions from different combinations of herbs.
His vast knowledge of herbs is thought to have aided him in discovering various medicinal properties that can help one live longer.
Along with this, and Li’s obvious claim to his own birthdate, a Chengdu University professor raised the case of a man with the same name and nearly identical story who, amazingly, lived to see his 200th birthday. Not only that, but according to Professor Wu Chung-Chien, this man was born in 1677, making him 256 years old when he died.
He made the case public three years before an article in the New York Times about a man called Li Ching-Yuen, for whom he discovered documents in which the imperial government of the Qing dynasty, China’s last imperial dynasty, praises him for his great servitude and tremendous contribution to China, and sends best wishes for his 150th birthday in 1827, and his 200th birthday in 1877.
