      Yesterday I grabbed the Yojokun on the way to the five elements class at Radicle Herb Shop for some inspiring reading, as Kaibara Ekiken discussed the five elements from the viewpoint of a samurai physician.

    1 quote from Kaibara Ekken: 'There is a secret key to nurturing your health. This key is an essential secret transmission that any person aiming to take good care of himself must understand and observe. The secret is in the single word decrease. Decrease means to reduce all of your ten thousand affairs and avoid increasing them. Be frugal in everything or, in other words, decrease your desires'.

Unlike other samurai of his time, the samurai Kaibara Ekiken () was concerned less with swordsmanship than with how to maintain and nurture the healthy mind and body upon.
