What's the tcm term?

Postby meeks on Thu Nov 07, 2019 1:25 am

Is there a term for people that get so overly concerned about whether their actions will "deplete their jing" that it too becomes a compulsive disorder?

Like how some people get so focused on the 'spiritual high' from meditation they have "fire chasing demon" syndrome.

I was talking to a newbie the other day and they were stressing about diet, exercises, lifestyle choices the point of not being in a healthy state of mind. Someone has put it in their head about "gotta keep your jing... Or you'll burn out your liver.." and all they can say is how person A and person B and person C is depleting their jing.... Newsflash... It replenishes naturally.

Not sure if there is such a term, but maybe in TCM school they have a slang for a newbie who thinks too many different branches grow from just one kind of root.

The generic term for this is “shen disturbance”.

It is commonly associated with mental illness in Western medical terminology.

In English there's a saying...

Can't see the forest for the trees.

Which means...
Cannot see, understand, or focus on a situation in its entirety due to being preoccupied with minor details.

The best book on the topic is unfortunately out of print. It is “Soothing the Troubled Mind: The Treatment and Prevention of Schizophrenia with Acupuncture and Moxibustion.”

The author wrote a short pdf on the topic that can be found here. Technically speaking this would be a "withdrawl" syndrome within shen disturbance.

I call it 走火入魔

The saying can be used colloquially. It doesn't always have to be some sort of super esoteric buddist thing. I like 走火入魔 for just, "He's gone a little nutso with the training/practice/etc"

p.s. the name is pronounced "buy le when"
