256 Years Old Man Breaks The Silence Before His Death And Reveals Shocking Secrets to the World

What is the longest a person has ever lived for? Meet Li Ching Yuen, 256 years old man whose story is worth hearing. And no, this is not a myth or a fictional tale.

Hence, according to a New York Times article from 1930, Wu Chung-chieh, professor of the Chengdu University, presented Imperial Chinese government records from 1827 congratulating Li Ching-Yuen on his 150th birthday. Additionally, back in 1877, other documents which were discovered later on showed him congratulating Li on his 200th birthday.

A correspondent of the New York Times, in 1928, wrote that a lot of old men in the neighborhood of Li claimed that their grandfathers knew Li Ching when they were only little boys, and, that he, at that time, was an adult.

Li Ching Yuen reportedly began his career as an herbalist at the age of 10, where he picked up herbs in mountain ranges and learned of their potency for longevity. What’s more, for almost 40 years, he survived on a diet based on herbs such as lingzhi, goji berry, wild ginseng, he shoo wu and gotu kola and rice wine. Furthermore, in 1749, at the age of 71, he joined the Chinese armies as teacher of martial arts.  He was reported as a loved figure in his community, marrying 23 times and fathering more than 200 children.

Li was able to read and write as a child, and by his tenth birthday had traveled in Kansu, Shansi, Tibet, Annam, Siam and Manchuria gathering herbs. This was his primary occupation for the first 100 years. Afterwards, he switched to selling herbs gathered by others. He sold lingzhi, goji berry, wild ginseng, he shou wu and gotu kola along with other Chinese herbs, and lived off a diet of these herbs and rice wine.

This 256 Years Old Man Wasn’t the Only Person over the Age of 200

According to one of Li’s disciples, he had once encountered an even older 500-year-old man, who taught him Qigong exercises and nutrition recommendations that would help him extend his lifespan to superhuman proportions. Apart from Qigong and a herb-rich diet, what else can we learn from this Master of Longevity?

How about this: 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.

His Secret to Longevity:

Li was asked what his secret was to longevity. This was his reply: “Keep a quiet heart, sit like a tortoise, walk sprightly like a pigeon and sleep like a dog.” These were the words of advice Li gave to Wu Pei-fu, the warlord, who took Li into his house to learn the secret of extremely long life.

Li maintained that inward calm and peace of mind combined with breathing techniques were the secrets to incredible longevity. Obviously, his diet would have played a large role. But it’s fascinating that the old living person in recorded history attributes his long life to his state of mind.

Why Is This So Strange and Unbelievable?

With the average lifespan for the Western world currently sitting between 70-85 years, the thought of someone living over 100 years old seems like quite the stretch. The thought of someone living over 200 years old seems extremely suspicious. But why don’t we believe that people can live this long?

We have to keep in mind that some people in this world don’t live a grueling 9-5 lifestyle, they don’t have to deal with the stresses of debt, they aren’t breathing polluted city air, and they exercise regularly. They don’t eat refined sugars or flour, or any foods that have had pesticides sprayed on them. They aren’t living off of the standard American diet.

They aren’t eating fatty meats, sugary deserts, and genetically modified foods. No antibiotics. No alcohol and no tobacco. Their diets not only exclude junk foods that we so often indulge in, they also include superfoods and herbs which are like steroids for our organs and immune system.

They also spend their spare time in nature practicing breathing techniques and meditating which have been proven to improve mental, physical, and emotional health. They keep things simple, get proper sleep, and spend a great deal of time in nature under the sun. When we get a chance to relax in the sun, we feel instantly rejuvenated and call this a “vacation”. Imagine spending a lifetime doing that in the mountains, and combining that with perfect mental, spiritual, and physical well-being.

If we do everything as it should be done, celebrating our 100th birthday would be a common thing, because, when we treat our bodies properly, who knows for how long can we live?
