  1. Dear David Orman,
    its the first time i have heard that wu wei zi is used for lactic acid build up?

    Can i ask where you found the information about wu wei zi being used in this fashion?

    Do you think a tincture of hawthorn berries would be good.

    Also you may be able to help me explain due to your chinese medicine knowledge what happens using tcm physiology , when a systema punch lands and the energy goes very deep into the body?

    cheers

  2. Dear Darren,

    Thanks for the email.

    Regarding your questions:

    Can i ask where you found the information about wu wei zi being used in this fashion?
    – Multiple sources along with 15+ years of clinical experience.

    Do you think a tincture of hawthorn berries would be good.
    – Good for what? If you are referring to lactic acid build up, my answer would be no.

    . . . when a systema punch lands and the energy goes very deep into the body?
    – Nice question! I had never thought of it like that.

    I would suggest that Systema punches, when done properly and deeply (i.e. When Vlad hits you for example), penetrate the 4 main levels or layers of protection the body typically has:

    1. Protective Layer
    2. Qi Layer
    3. Nutritive Layer
    4. Blood Layer

    I suspect it causes energetic disruption in all of the layers, particularly Qi and Xue (Blood). As such, with precise intent, there can be major disruption to an organ using this type of striking. Fortunately for us, individuals such as Vlad or in my case, David Merrell are of solid character; that is, though they are more than capable of causing such damage, their intention is never the case.

    In addition to the aforementioned, there would be an extreme disruption in qi and blood flow in several a meridian(s), depending upon the location of the strike. As you may know, meridians are “one way streets.” In other words, the energy is designed to move in one direction only. If this flow is interrupted, pain, bruising, injury and even disease(s) can occur. Theoretically at least, death can even be the end result.

    The deep discomfort or pain that we feel during such strikes is the end result of abnormal flow of qi and blood, particularly the former. That is one reason is can be removed as quickly as it is given. If you have ever witnessed or experienced the “removal” of said pain and how quickly that can occur, it is rather amazing to say the least.

    Thank you again.

    David
