For thousands of years, traditional Chinese doctors and Taoists/Buddhists have harnessed the divine energies of the Tao to become vital, attain total health, clarity of mind, purity of spirit and thereby fulfill their destinies as teachers/healers.  Such sages/bodhisattvas/physicians believed that every human being had this capacity.  And to be a human being was to devote your life to helping fellow human beings.  But they emphatically stated that one first has to heal oneself and awaken before healing others.
