Things That The Bible Knew Before Modern Medicine
In numerous instances the Bible contains medical information that far predates man’s actual discoveries of related principles in the field of medicine. The medical instructions given by Moses to the Israelites some 3500 years ago were not only far superior to the practices of contemporary cultures, they also exceeded medical standards practiced as recently as 100 years ago.
Tefillin : An Ancient Acupuncture Point Prescription for Mental Clarity
Tefillin is an ancient Jewish prayer ritual that uses two small leather boxes, each attached to a long, 9mm wide, leather strap. One box is placed on the biceps of the weaker arm while the second is placed on the head. The biceps strap is tightly wound along the arm in a carefully prescribed manner. The back of the head strap is tied in a knot and carefully placed at the base of the skull.
The acknowledged purpose of the tefillin is to raise spiritual consciousness of the men who wear it. If we examine where the knots and wrappings are placed from a TCM point of view, it appears that the tefillin and wraps form a potent acupuncture point formula focused on the Governing vessel (Du Mai) and aimed at elevating the spirit and clearing the mind.
