256 year old man reveals shocking secrets to the world before he dies
Li Ching-Yuen, a Chinese herbalist, martial artist and tactical advisor is known for his extreme longevity. His lifespan of 256 years far exceeds the longest confirmed lifespan of 122 years.
A New York Times story, report the death on 6 May, 1933 in Kai Xian, Sichuan, at the age of 197, of the Republic of China’s Li Ching-Yuen, who claimed to be born in 1736, while disputed records claimed to be born in 1677. According to the government congratulatory message, Li Ching-Yuen died at age 256.
This 256 years old man spent his life gathering herbs in mountain ranges and studying their power for longevity. His diet consisted mainly of herbs like lingzhi, goji berry, wild ginseng, he shoo wu and gotu kola and rice wine. In 1749, at age of 71, he joined the Chinese armies where he was a teacher of martial arts. Li was a considered as loved-figure in his community. What’s more amazing, this 256 year old man married 23 times and fathered more than 200 children. According to the tales told in his province, Li learned to read and write at an early age, and by his tenth birthday, he had already visited Kansu, Shansi, Tibet, Annam, Siam and Manchuria gathering herbs.
He wasn’t the only one
According to one of Li’s disciples, a 500-year-old man taught him Qugong exercise and recommended him this nutrition in order to help him extend his lifetime. Apart from Qigong and herb-rich diet, what else can we learn from this Master of Longevity?
This is quite interesting: On his death bed, Li famously said, “I have done all that I have to do in this world”. Could his peaceful last words also hint at one of the biggest secrets to a long and prosperous life? It’s interesting to note that in the West, we’re often taught to believe that aging is something that must be “beaten” with high tech infrared devices and state of the art medication.
