How can the vitality increased?
Let us see, in a nutshell, the most important factors that are effecting the level of our vitality, energy,
productivity and competitiveness.
Probably the most important and simplest factor although only a few people know and appreciate the real importance
of sleeping. Not only the number of hours we spend sleeping is important, but also when
we sleep. The measurements we made so far have confirmed the old rule that the most useful is to start sleeping at 9 o'clock
at night, or 10 o'clock at the latest, i.e. in the summer when the sun goes down. If we follow this natural ancient rhythm,
the habit built into our organism during many hundreds of thousands of years will favourably effect our life. We will be able
to rest much more efficiently than if we had started our sleep after midnight and continued to sleep during the day. This
natural sleeping rhythm is much more restful and replenishing. The simplest way to improve our vitality level is
by re-establishing our resting periods, so it's worth starting with this.
Another very important factor is to learn and use relaxation methods. Very old methods are available
to replenish ourselves. The most ancient method may be Indian yoga, but in the Far-East in China
methods have also been discovered which replenish us with the combination of breathing and special
excercises like Chi-Kung. It's important that after a short period of time we learn how
we can bring ourselves into a stress-free status and through this fill our body with energy. This can be done in a very short
time, even in some minutes. (Numerous detailed books, descriptions can be found about breathing techniques and meditational
states). Medical science or psychology nowadays can separate some functional phases of the brain. On EEG measurements the
name of alpha state is used to indicate the mental state of relaxation and energy replenishment.
This roughly means that 10-11 Hertz of frequency can be detected in our brain if we examine its electric activity. You can
learn how to reach this mental state. For example, a simple easy-to-learn method is Silva's Mind Control.
The ideal method could probably be a kind of combination of the mental and breathing techniques and according to our experiences
this is the quickest way to replenish. This is the reason why even our posture will make a difference. It
is very important to sit with a straight back so that our lungs can fill up with oxygen and let our oxygen
supply to be perfect. Hollow chests, stooping figure will make breathing and oxygen metabolism much more difficult and this
will lead to low vitality level.
Sports are another type of relaxation and breathing exercise. We're also able to improve our vitality level
by playing sports. It is important to know, though, that it is not useful all the time or to any
extent. We are able to measure at what limit sports will recharge us, and over
what extent it will be too tiring, where it decreases the vitality level dangerously by overdoing excercises.
Ideal sports are: swimming, reasonable gymnastics, jogging, or tennis if it is done in fresh air.
The above viewpoints have considered the mental techniques and oxygen metabolism, so let us now examine other
factors, or circumstances that are effecting our vitality values. A majority of it will depend on our eating and drinking
It is best if you check whether you are getting the right quantity of vitamins. The best
way to do this is eating many row fruits and vegetables. Only use artificial products if you are unable to get natural food.
Many vitamin supplements are available, you can try and see if your vitality level increases after the intake. Sometimes the
lack of one or two vitamins can significantly lower your VQ level which is the easiest to recover by taking these vitamins.
Short history of the energy of life
The energy that we're measuring as vitality has been well known for a very long time in the history of civilization
and it's very hard to find a place where it wasn't used for healing purposes. Ethnographical researchers found traces of healing
with this kind of energy among many tribes thought to be primitive in Australia, Siberia, from the Pacifics to America, and
Africa. Since this energy is present in everybody, in smaller or greater quantities, and since we can pass it on to
each other to some extent, it's known to be the oldest and a very effective "medical" treatment.
It had a name in all cultures. In India it was called Prana, in China, Chi,
but it's also known by all the other old cultures. Healing with bioenergy is a wide-spread human ability.
In the ancient times its importance was recognized in China and India roughly about the same time. In India, jogies worked
out exercises to increase energy through meditation and breathing exercises. Even greater effects have been achieved in China
by controlling and directing this energy. Acupuncture could probably be led back to this energy because in
some points of our body there is more of it than in others.
During the measurements it came to the light that the greatest energy from the human body is released from
areas where there are lots of acupunture points, while less active areas are where there are only a few or none of them. We
suppose that the energy making the wheel rotate is probably the same as the one spreading through the acupuncture meridians.
In China, though, this energy has not been used only for healing, but also
for fighting. This is the so-called "soft" martial art (Wu-Shu) where the enemy can be
defeated without any physical contact, simply with an energy "shoot". Some parts of the body can
be hardened this way so one can withstand extremely strong hits. This martial art is unknown except for in China,
making it quite incredible and difficult to imagine.
