ABSTRACT: Coronavirus (COVID-19) infection has reached over 60 countries. While it is important to isolate and treat infected population, it is also critical to empower non-infected, especially those who cannot stay at home all the time, so they can stay healthy or recover faster. Coronavirus infection is new and requires fresh thinking and a new approach, especially when many hospitals have run out of masks and ventilators.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) infection has become so pandemic that even the top hospitals are short of masks. Some countries use demobilization (for example, China) and self-isolation (for example, Canada). Many facilities in the US shut down or let employees work at home to minimize human contacts. There is NO available treatment for virus infection. The World Health Organization recommends individuals with mild infection to recover at home since hospitals mainly provide supportive care. Still, there is more that can be done.
Immunity is a key to defeat virus infection
Immunity is a key to defeat virus infection and one supportive care at the hospitals. Although asymptomatic, many individuals’ immune systems are either suppressed by stress, not at their optimal level, or both, and, therefore, cannot protect themselves well. For example, a healthy person can suffer a severe cold after taking a stressful assignment. That is because work stress suppresses his or her immune system, so the person can get the infection that the person usually does not.
The infamous 1918 influenza pandemic killed 20 million~ 100 million persons globally, more than World War I (WWI) did (Johnson and Mueller 2002). That is the worst mortality in history so far. One big reason was that the flu happened at the end of WWI (1914~ 1918) whole intense continuous stress suppressed many individuals’ immune system. No antibiotic and no vaccination at that period also made the situation worse.
We can naturally reverse the suppression, restore a person’s internal balance and optimize his or her immunity, so the person can stay healthy or recover faster. It takes a right 6Q package to achieve and maintain optimal health, including immunity.
I first tried the natural restoration in 2012 after I worked extra hard for a while. One day, I felt fragile after I woke up. To my surprise, I also found pus on my throat (I used to be completely healthy). I knew how long it could take if I went to the ER, so I wanted to try a new way– deplete stress and restore internal balance. It worked– the pus disappeared in 30 minutes! A few years later, the natural restoration saved more than 80% of antibiotics when I had pneumonia.
The natural restoration is also how we could reverse fast Aging, restore individuals brain and body power from burnout, and enable individuals to maintain optimal performance and health. “Naturally” means no pill, no injection, no needle, and no surgery.
Many people are used to going to the hospital after they develop typical symptoms and use Western medicine only. That works well with illnesses at the acute stage but can miss opportunities when handling complex health issues that often have more than the acute stage. Subsequently, many avoidable diseases, disability, and deaths sustain, and short treatments can last years, which makes healthcare costs skyrocketing.
Most illnesses have pre-illness, acute, and chronic stages, such as heart disease. The rest may have 1~2 of the three steps– Coronavirus infection has pre-illness and acute stages, and Traumatic Brain Injury has acute and chronic stages. While Western medicine has unique power at the acute stage, and the 6Q tools and Eastern medicine have more solutions at the pre-illness and chronic stages. Utilizing the right tools at each step is the key to solve complex health issues, for example, to recover from fast Aging and Traumatic Brain Injury.
Coronavirus infection has both pre-illness and acute stages. While it is essential to isolate and treat the infected population, it is also critical to enable non-infected to take early action to minimize new infections and enable mildly infected to recover faster. The second can be 100 times cheaper than the first.
In addition, most people need healthcare education to get well from Coronavirus infection faster at home or utilize the hospitals efficiently if needed. There are many avoidable mistakes at the hospitals, and not every medical expert keeps the best interest of their patients in mind. Some resist innovation and facts …
Do you have a great chance to expose to Coronavirus? Have you been working too hard or under too much stress? See which program fits you.
It requires fresh thinking and a new approach to handle Coronavirus infection, especially when many hospitals have run out of masks and ventilators. To stay open to new ideas and think differently is the key to beat Coronavirus, solve complex health issues, and beat skyrocketing healthcare costs. Many people still do not know how to take early action and stay healthy when Coronavirus is reaching every corner of the world. Your sharing will change their world for the better.

Many people have been told that Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) survivors can achieve maximum recovery in 2 years (called 2-year plateau). Some people also call TBI “chronic illnesses.” THAT IS NOT TRUE as uninjured brain cells have the same DNA and can learn with no 2-year plateau. Once TBI survivors know that they can go back to who they were, many “chronic issues” can go away or be easily corrected. Many TBI survivors can pursue their freedom and opportunities again and save 80-95% of life treatment costs if they can take one more step– the 6Q cognitive restoration. The waste in TBI recovery also happens in many other health issues and contributes to today’s skyrocketing healthcare costs.
Many people have been told that Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) survivors can achieve maximum recovery in 2 years (called 2-year plateau). Some people also call TBI “chronic illnesses.” THAT IS NOT TRUE.
First, uninjured brain cells have
the same DNA with no 2-year plateau, which is how I could recover myself from
Traumatic Brain Injury due to an accident in 1997, pass medical license exams
2001~2003, and did excellently again at the clinics. Second, many “chronic issues”
are secondary to intense insecurity and stress associated with TBI. Once TBI survivors know that they can go back
to who they were, those secondary issues can go away or be easily
corrected, which is my case.
I have helped every TBI survivor I met at the clinics. All of them achieved significant results beyond their 2-year plateau and resolve their “chronic issues.” I am going to share with you their stories and mine.
the Recovery from Traumatic Brain Injury?
Both technology and human beings. While traditional technology and focus contribute
to the 2-year plateau, human beings can promote, impede, or destroy innovation
and recovery. Individuals can be
deprived of human rights not only socially, legally, but also medically. To recover from Traumatic Brain Injury can be
a typical example.
1. Life Saving and Safety Enhancement Cannot Guarantee Cognitive Restoration.
It is critical to control cranial pressure and minimize toxin release at the acute
stage to save life, minimize damage, and preserve non-injured brain cells. Western medicine has achieved greatly here. Physical rehab
and speech therapy further enhance individuals’ safety and restore physical
function. However, another part of TBI
recovery, especially cognitive restoration, happens at the chronic stage, which
is not the comfort zone of the Western Medicine but Eastern medicine and the 6Q
2. Focus on damaged brain cells and ignore
Years of research have found that
injured brain cells have 2-year plateau. However, uninjured brain cells do not have
2-year plateau but preserve the same DNA and learning capacity. Studies have also found that most people only
use 10% of their brains. Many TBI survivors have at least 10%
of their brain cells uninjured, therefore, they have a great chance to go back
to who they were, including the ones with brain removal. Here is a story about one survivor with brain removal.
A tall and thin middle-aged man had partial brain removal due to
TBI for about 10 years. His mother always accompanied him to the clinic
and answered questions for him. I knew that the only way the man could speak is
to practice whenever possible. I asked him to answer all the questions and told
him that I had all the time I needed.
Of course, I did not have unlimited time. However, the man’s
issue was straightforward, and I could always ask his mother if needed. He was
very slow initially, but he answered all my questions. Then I gave him some
homework and asked him to read aloud at home and tell me the homework for the
next visit. As he could speak more and
more, the man became more and more alive, energetic, and shinning.
3. Inefficient Cognitive Restoration
Most cognitive programs prepare TBI
survivors to accept “the next level of placement” instead of going
back to who they were. The low
expectation somehow is associated with that they use limited IQ, behaviors or
The brain rehab I went to mainly
helped me not to fall or choke. Psychological
support mainly let me express my fears and struggles and then advised me to
accept my “new life.” These are
essential but do not help a person regain his or her cognitive function and get
back to who the person was. I knew I had
to do the rest part on my own.
Each person is an integrated
system of 6Qs: IQ, EQ, Learning Q, Adversity Q, Public Influence Q, and Health
Q. Because all 6Qs are integrated, poor IQ performance can have
non-IQ causes from the other 5 Qs, on which cognitive training and stimulation
have limited impact. For the same reason, IQ performance can be enhanced
through both IQ and non-IQ channels. Furthermore, how to learn easy is another key as
the learning can be massive and challenging. TBI survivors need to see results quickly to stay
motivated and continue to restore the rest cognitive function.
Attorneys often focus on making more money now instead of
clients’ recovery and future. I had
three attorneys in workman’s compensation as my head injury happened on my way
to work. All of them wanted me to claim
100% disabilities even
after I passed medical licensing exams and received excellent letters of
recommendation. If people like me was
100% disable, how many are able out there?
Who will trust me?
Most TBI survivors do
not know their rights, not to mention to protect their rights. Some attorneys actively help their clients regain
cognitive function, which is wise for both in the long run.
However, some attorneys
only want to make money and disregard the future of their clients. I had the
accident on my way to work in 1997, so my case was also a workman’s
compensation claim. I totally had three attorneys,
one of whom was the president of the workman’s compensation attorney
association in one state. All three attorneys
wanted me to claim 100% disabilities even after I passed medical
licensing exams and received excellent letters of recommendation at the
clinics. If a person who can pass medical licensing
exams is 100% disabled, how many are not disable out there? Who will trust my word?
No money can buy a
person’s freedom, opportunities, and credibility. It is vital to get the right attorney. Usually,
it is much easier to identify bad attorneys than wrong doctors.
5.Ignorance and Resistance
People in healthcare
are often very caring and understanding. However, to some “experts,” a problem is
insolvable once it is insolvable to them.
They refuse to believe that others can solve the problems that they
cannot regardless what the reality is.
They can simply label the TBI survivors with the “disabilities” that
they think should be there with “their way,” take away others’ training, insist
on their wrongdoing… it is astonishing and heartbreaking to watch these happening,
especially when those experts are someone who you have trusted and respected.
By ignoring and resisting innovation, the above “experts” also take away the opportunities of millions of TBI survivors with the potential to pursue their freedom and opportunities again, which creates a huge burden to society as lifetime treatment can cost $85,000 to $3 million per TBI survivor. That is unethical, inhuman, and illegal. Thus, it is critical for people in healthcare, especially leaders, to have a healthy Ego, stay open to innovation, explore better solutions, and be not afraid to learn from mistakes. A healthy Ego will make it easy for them to carry the rest parts. Then healthcare can go from good to great and be cost-efficient.
Secondary Issues May Not Be Chronic or Permanent
Some people call Traumatic
Brain Injury a “chronic illness” as some health issues are associated with
Traumatic Brain Injury, for example, insomnia, impulse control, aggressive
behaviors and low thyroid. That is not 100%
correct, which you can see from the case below:
A business owner often called 911 to go to the
Emergency Room (ER) to yell at doctors and nurses. His ER visits lasted for
years. I happened to do a rotation in ER that day and learned he did so since
he was too frustrated that he had to relearn everything. I understood him,
talked to him about his progress, and share with him my live sample of success.
I told him that not everyone has a chance to go back to who they were, and her
at least had a chance. If I could make it, so could him.
We talked for about 10 minutes. The business owner thanked me in the end. ER nurses later told me that the ER visit was
his shortest and most pleasant one. He
soon went to work and never came back to the ER.
I could change his
behavior in 10 minutes because his issue was related to intense insecurity and stress,
secondary to TBI. Having been there, I
know that nothing can be more frightening and hopeless than to lose a person’s
brainpower, the inner ability to execute and protect his or her human rights to
pursue freedom and opportunities. Once the
business owner knew that he could regain his brainpower, it was easy to correct
his aggressive behavior.
Insomnia and impulse
control have been corrected for the same reason. Low thyroid and low growth hormone may also
be related to depression and stress. Epilepsy
and decreased sight are more structure related. We are going to explore if the 6Q cognitive restoration
can help to resolve the rest “chronic health issues.” Please contact us if you or your team are interested.
Recover from Traumatic Brain Injurybeyond
the “2-Year Plateau?”
Every Step Counts!
First, it is critical to save life, minimize damage, and preserve non-injured
brain cells at the acute stage. Western
medicine has achieved greatly in controlling cranial
pressure and minimizing toxin release. I
could recover well also because the accident happened in a winter evening, so I
could benefit from hypothermia instantly.
The hospital at Amarillo also took good care of me and taught me the
first two words, “Good morning!”
Second, Physical rehab and speech
therapy can further enhance safety and restore physical function, which is the
foundation of cognitive restoration.
We optimize the end results — cognitive restoration—and enhance further healing if possible.
1. Who Can Benefit from Us?
above, TBI survivors can have a great chance to go back to who they were if they
least 10% of their brain cells uninjured. Can anyone benefit from the 6Q cognitive
those who can learn and are motivated to learn.
Those who have suffered Traumatic Brain Injury and desire to go back to who they were.
Those who have at least 10% brain cells are uninjured.
Those who are determined to relearn and can.
Those with “chronic health issues” should have 6Q cognitive restoration
and symptom relieves at the same time. Currently,
we prefer all participants who have finished step 1 and 2.
2. How We Help TBI Survivors? What to Expect?
In general, we design custom programs per individuals’ unique needs and challenges and make learning as easy and fun as possible, for the learning can be massive, challenging, and frustrating. Also, we promote further healing through Eastern and Western medicine and the 6Q tools if possible. We want TBI survivors to see results quickly, stay motivated and continue their cognitive restoration. Read more about the program
What to expect? Many TBI survivors can show some improvement
in 8 weeks if they work hard and achieve much more in 8-10 months. Complete recovery can take years. Some survivors may have unexpected discoveries, for example, I can read
the stories within some music, which I had no idea before the accident.
3. Who Supports TBI Recovery
Private insurances, institutions and
families are often the first payers. Many
states have a TBI trust fund to help survivors learn new skills, and many TBI
survivors are eligible for their state assistance. For example,
New Jersey TBI FUND Director: Peri Nearon 11A Quakerbridge Plaza, Mercerville NJ 08625-0700 Tel: 888-285-3036
Louisiana Traumatic Head and Spinal Cord Injury Trust Fund Manager: Tonia Gedward LDH Office of Aging and Adult Services Tel: (225) 219-9935
New Mexico Dept of Education- Division of Vocational Rehab Director: Lucinda Garc 435 St. Michael’s Drive, Bidg. D, Sante Fe, NM 87505 Tel: 505-954-8500
Massachusetts Brain Injury and Statewide Specialized Community Services Director: Sandy Biber 600 Washington Street, 2nd Floor MRL, Boston, MA 02210-1616 Tel: 617-204-3852
Other states include Kentucky, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Pennsylvania, etc. You can get the information about your state and others at “A LOOK AT TBI TRUST FUND PROGRAMS.”
Nothing can ensure individuals’ freedom
and opportunities better than their brainpower, which is the truth that I have
found after searching around the world, With
the right tools, many TBI survivors can recover from Traumatic Brain Injury
beyond the 2-year plateau and pursue their freedom and opportunities again. When one TBI survivor can return to work,
society will not only have one more taxpayer but also save $85,000 to $3
million in lifetime treatment.
What limits Traumatic Brain Injury recovery also contributes to today’s skyrocketing healthcare costs. While it is excellent to search for solutions at stem cells and bio-medicine levels, like many chronic issues due to TBI, about 70% of primary clinical visits result from non-health causes, for example, heart attack, weight gain, and insomnia. Like TBI, many health issues have chronic stages, and some also have pre-illness stages, where Western medicine has limited power. Healthcare can easily become inefficient or expensive endless symptom relieves if Western medicine is used to handle non-health causes or health issues outside of the acute stage. Many institutions have begun to value Eastern medicine or use common senses or limited IQ, EQ and psychological tools to manage non-health causes. However, that is just beginning.
By targeting issues with the
right tools, we can recover TBI survivors beyond the 2-year plateau, minimize other
disabilities, deaths, illnesses, and beat skyrocketing’s healthcare costs. It takes everyone to achieve the goal, especially
leaders in healthcare– to stay open to new ideas and innovation, be willing to
explore better solutions, and be not afraid to learn from mistakes, so healthcare
can go from good to great and save costs efficiently.

These days, many businesses, families and individuals suffer from skyrocketing healthcare cost. To use partial assessments and then pay for endless expensive symptom relieves is a BIG cause.
In fact, many years of treatments can become months, weeks, or even days, for example, heart attack, stroke, burnout, depression, insomnia, weight gain, etc. Individuals can stay healthy and be their best! Businesses can beat rising healthcare costs, optimize healthcare quality AND be an employer of choice! This video will show you why and how.
Welcome to The Prince Synergy. I am Bin Yang. Today, I want you to look at work, life, and health from a different angle and think differently.
These days, many businesses, families and individuals suffer from skyrocketing healthcare cost. In fact, many years of treatments can become months, weeks, or even days. Many deaths and disabilities can be reversed. First, let me share a story with you.
Case Study: Beat Setback & Failure, Stay Healthy!
Not long ago, I ran into Mr. Z at a hospital. Mr. Z was a great football player at high school and had a very successful business. Unfortunately, he lost all his money in oil market. He drank heavily ever since and developed cirrhosis and gastric mass in 2 years. When he was admitted to hospital for vomiting blood, he looked like 70 years old when he was only 42. I became the first one to discuss Adversity Quotient with him.
Did the hospitals miss anything?
The hospitals failed to address the root cause– Mr. Z’s poor Adversity Quotient (AQ). Unless his AQ could be strengthened, Mr. Z would keep on going back to the hospitals and getting worse. Healthcare would become endless symptom relieves, wasting his life and money.
I became the first one to help him rebuild his AQ. Mr. Z quit drinking in 1 week. His liver and stomach recovered rapidly in the following 4 weeks.
The world does not challenge only your strengths. However, many people handle setbacks and failures via drinking, smoking, drugs and other unhealthy means due to a poor AQ and develop various health issues.
Unless we can get to the root cause, healthcare will become endless symptom relieves, wasting life and money. Let’s go to the second case.
Case Study: Eliminate Insomnia with the Right Law
One time I had a patient who was an attorney. Because his parents left all their money to him, nothing to his sister, his sister kept on suing the family, and he had to manage. As time passed by, he developed insomnia and anxiety. He had been to other firms before he came to me and was quite familiar with standard maneuvers, such as position change.
I asked him if his family had set up a family fund. He said no. So, I told him, “Set up your family fund, so you do not have to give your 40% to Uncle Sam. Give it to your sister.” The attorney was speechless. From that day, he needed no more sleeping pills or therapies. What he needed was a right law. Once his issue was gone, his health issues disappeared.
Where Did the Success Started?
When I was doing residency, I noticed many people went to the hospitals because they could not handle the challenges outside. Usually, once I found the missing tools to meet their challenges, many got well quickly with minimum re-occurrence rates. Many years of healthcare treatments into months, weeks, or even days.
About 70% of primary
clinical visits are related to stress.
However, most people just keep on going back to their doctors. In fact, one big cause of stress-related health
issues is the lack of the right tools to meet challenges. Each person has 6Q, IQ, EQ, Learning Q,
Adversity Q, Public influence Q and Health Q.
Doctors mainly fix health through medicine. Individuals usually miss some tools to other
Traditional education gives some tools in IQ and EQ, which mainly covers half of the human system. By finding their missing tools, we have helped many patients recover quickly, including the same day, with minimum re-occurrence. That is what we called “Find Your Missing Tools, See Doctors Less.” Our success started at clinics in 2004 where we invented the 6Q Approach.
What is Missing in Health Risk Assessment and Biometric Screening?
Many institutions provide workers an opportunity to complete a health risk assessment and a biometric screening. (Health Risk Assessment includes questions about a person’s medical history, health status, and lifestyle. Biometric Screening focuses on risk factors such as body weight, cholesterol, blood pressure, stress, and nutrition.)
What is missing in the two assessments? They miss the impact of challenges over a person’s health. A person can suffer from heart attack and stroke even if the person is a vegetarian and an athlete and has no past and family medical history.
Beat Skyrocketing Healthcare Costs!
To use partial assessments and then pay for endless expensive symptom relieves is a BIG cause of today’s skyrocketing healthcare costs!
In fact, individuals can stay healthy, recover quickly if needed, and be their best! Businesses can beat rising healthcare costs, optimize healthcare quality AND be an employer of choice!

Healthcare costs have been soaring every year so fast that President Barack Obama once said, “By a wide margin, the biggest threat to our nation’s balance sheet is the skyrocketing cost of healthcare. It’s not even close.” In The Cost Conundrum, Dr. Atul Gawande described how some doctors at McAllen, Texas turn a population of twelve thousand dollars income per capital into one of fifteen thousand dollars per enrollee in Medicare, almost twice the national average.
The doctors’ business drive is only one internal cause. Middlemen’s profit sharing is one external cause. The non-health cause that contributes to about 70% of primary clinical visits for stress-related health issues and the limited way how businesses and individuals meet challenges and stay healthy also give those white-coat wolfs legitimate reasons and endless opportunities to suck the blood out of individuals, businesses, and economic systems. In addition, not all doctors have the best knowledge and problem-solving.
We can not only cut down healthcare costs but also improve healthcare quality and productivity at the same time. We can not only cut down today’s healthcare costs but also anticipate development needs in coming challenges, make wise investments and take early action. Our success started at the clinic in 2004 when I first invented the 6Q Approach. Here are 5 main steps.
Meet challenges with the Right Tools
– How Can Medical Treatments Become Expensive and Endless Symptom Relieves?
A study at Toronto University Family Medicine found that 70% of their primary visits are stress related. Most stress-related health issues are directly related to the lack of the right tools to meet the challenge, relax and restore self, for example, insomnia, heart attack, diabetes, obesity, and fast aging. McAllen could have heavy drinking sixty percent higher than the national average because many individuals in that area have lower education and fewer opportunities, so they drink to achieve a fast relief. Smoking and food are other common antidepressants. Then obesity and others associated diseases follow, such as heart attack, diabetes, and hypertension.
Some doctors and hospitals do not want their patients to find their missing tool—they want their patients to keep on coming back. Some doctors indulge their patients with heart failure not to sleep and eat right so they can have “a new heart” quicker. Until individuals can find their missing tools, the same issues often keep on coming back and getting worse. Because doctors and hospitals are often paid by visits and procedures, medical treatments can become expensive and endless symptom relieves with legitimate reasons. As people go to the clinic or hospital more, more complications can emerge, which require further treatments. Heart disease is a good example.
-Limited Talent Management Also Contributes to Health Issues
The best way for talent to minimize stress-related health issues is to stay on the right track (avoid unsuitable challenges) and meet challenges with the right tools. However, people often lack the right tools to meet challenges, especially those resulted from non-IQ and non-EQ sources.
Behaviors can reflect the underlying structure in different environments but often change as environments changes. Thus, insignificant weaknesses in that environment will not surface but can impact the next project. We call the weakness Relative Weakness. The 360-degree evaluation can only collect behavior observation AFTER a person gets into the specific environment. “Shoot Burnout, Save His Job!” is a good example. Individuals with high EQ can control what others can observe at the workplace and alter 360-degree evaluation results. A 2016 Deloitte survey found that only 13% of companies believe they are building effective global leaders.
Manage Self Efficiently
Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan, repeatedly said at top MBAs that individuals ought to take care of themselves and not to expect their company to babysitter them. However, many people cannot manage self efficiently due to poor knowledge and then develop or worsen their health issues, for example, stroke and fast aging.
Some people go to the hospital too late, which makes a small problem big, big problem impossible. One couple called 911 after their son got choked. By the time when an ambulance arrived, the boy already died as the human brain can only tolerate no oxygen for 6-7 minutes. The couple should have removed the foreign object and started CPR (cardiac pulmonary resuscitation) while waiting for the ambulance. In heart attack and stroke, the window time to dissolve the clots is only a few hours. However, many people miss the precious hours and have a feeble recovery.
Self-management can be the most difficult task in the world because of human nature and knowledge base, starting from decision-making to execution, including time management, teamwork, relaxation, restoration, etc. Many individuals miss some tools along the process, which can impede their success and destroy their health.
NOT to Rely on the Hospitals
Not every doctor and hospital has the best knowledge or keeps the best interest of their patients in mind. Some doctors only want to use their specialty to solve ALL problems. For example, a Psychiatrist wants to treat a heart attack by easing a patient’s mind, and a Surgeon likes to use a knife instead of preventive care. Some physicians have limited knowledge and creativity. Many disabilities and deaths result from improper treatments or unnecessary treatments.
In 1997, my mother and I were rear-ended in a tragic auto accident. She was put on a ventilator since she could not breathe on her own. About 5 weeks later, her doctor diagnosed that she would be ventilator-dependent for the rest of her life since she did not improve. My mom refused to live on the ventilator, so I had to be the one to discontinue her lifeline. I decided to exam her myself before I took the final step. To my surprise, I found her diaphragm was intact, which meant that she could breathe by raising and relaxing her diaphragm (abdominal breath). I taught her the new way of breathing. She got off the ventilator in three days. Later she regained her independence through both the Eastern and Western medicine.
I suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury in the accident. Almost all experts predicted that I could not recover. In the meantime, we got zero compensation from the courts, including the US Supreme Court. After I cried for a whole night, I decided to recover myself and apply for a medical license. In addition to the Eastern and Western medicine, I studied hard, joined all kinds of events and tried everything I could found. Thank God, I have passed all 3 steps of medical license examinations and received many excellent letters of recommendations at the clinics.
Anticipate Issues, Take Early Action
Each person’s 6 quotients are integrated, which is why health issues can have non-health causes, and poor IQ and EQ performance can result from non-IQ and non-EQ sources. By knowing individual 6Q structures, we can anticipate when relative weaknesses will become significant, which strengthen can be irrelevant, so businesses and individuals can make wise investments.
* Using one tool for All Issues
* Stay out of their maximum comfort(aptitude) zone
* Tripped up by relative weaknesses
* Unable to utilize resources
* Run out of gas (energy)
* Inability to handle setbacks and failures
* Insufficient relaxations and restoration techniques
* Go to the hospital only for stress-related health problems.
Look at the Big Picture, Think Differently
Human work, life, and health are integrated. As long as health issues can have non-health causes, health management is NOT equal to hospital management. We cannot rely on hospitals and medicine alone to stay healthy nor use IQ, EQ, and behavior tools only to meet challenges and avoid stress-related health issues. Partial approaches only offer legitimate reasons for greedy doctors and hospitals to suck the blood out of customers and economic systems and destroy the competitiveness of businesses and nations and bankrupting millions of families.
The efficient solution is to link health management with talent management, remove the root causes of endless symptom relieves and empower individuals to participate in personal health management and utilize health resources wisely. Individuals can get well quickly, including the same day, with the minimum re-occurrence like the cases above. Businesses can optimize productivity and minimize absenteeism and healthcare costs. In addition, both can anticipate development needs, including health needs in coming challenges, make wise investments, and take early action. Solving problems around healthcare alone is inefficient. Unlike health insurance companies, businesses do not have the conflict of interests in paying for personal development.
It is time to look at the big picture, think differently and target issues with the right tools. By doing so, we can not only cut down healthcare costs but also improve healthcare quality and productivity at the same time and help more businesses become an employer of choice.

We have discussed how to build Level 5 leadership from different angles. Now we are talking about how to beat rising healthcare cost. Is there a connection between the two, looking at the hot topics below? • Take Your Leadership to Level 5 to Get Ahead and Stay Ahead or Beat Setbacks & Failures Ahead?
• What Stops Leaders from Being Level 5?
• Should A CEO Be Charming?
• How to Retain Startup DNA?
• What Is Missing in Health Risk Assessments & Biometric Screenings?
• Why Google Behaves Differently When Beating Rising Healthcare Cost?
The issues that we try to solve all have something to do with what is missing in traditional partial approaches except they have different symptoms and emerge at various stages that often starts with decision-making and ends with healthcare. What is missing in traditional partial approaches?
• IQ and EQ tools cannot solve non-IQ and non-EQ issues efficiently, for example, adversity and self-care. Studies have found about 70% of primary clinical visits are stress-related or due to lack of the right tools to meet challenges.
• Behavior tools can observe individuals 360 degrees but cannot anticipate development and health needs. Studies found that only 13% of companies can develop global leaders efficiently.
• Healthcare is not set to find the missing tools but can provide expensive symptom relieves, and Doctors are often paid per visit or procedure. In addition, not every doctor has the best knowledge. Some do unnecessary procedures. Some try to qualify their patients for more expensive procedures quicker…
• In the meantime, most people cannot take care of self and use health system efficiently.
Without the right tools to handle non-IQ and non-EQ challenges, such as choosing the right direction, using the right people, handling setbacks, and restoring self, leaders can fail or end their journey too early.
When talent is not on the right track or does not have the right tools, they will not get the job done and take good care of self but can develop various health issues.
What is missing in leadership development and talent management gives healthcare the legitimate reason to provide endless and expensive symptom relieves, not to mention that businesses need to pay for many avoidable treatments, surgeries, emergency room visits, chronic illnesses, disabilities, and deaths.
The more people can meet challenges with the right tools, stay healthy, get well quickly if needed, the better businesses and individuals can beat rising healthcare cost. The sooner businesses can start right, the more benefits they can enjoy along with their journeys, such as Level 5 leadership, hearts and minds, smooth project completions, and healthcare saving. By working on health alone, the bills for endless and expensive symptom relieve and avoidable treatments, surgeries, disabilities, and deaths will keep on coming. High deductions and co-pays can stop some unnecessary services but can also make small problems big or impossible and hurt work performance and loyalty.

Los Angeles, CA July. 26th, 2017– The Prince Synergy (www.ThePrinceSynergy.com) announces that TPS Dream & Power (www.DreamandPower.com) will focus on beating rising healthcare costs and offer free “Find Your Missing Tools, See Doctors Less” for 3 days (7/26-7/28/2018).
When asked about the focus, Bin Yang, the 6Q Approach Inventor and Managing Director of The Prince Synergy, said, “The skyrocketing cost of healthcare has threatened almost every business, family, and individual. Big co-pays and deductions cannot save efficiently but backfire. The key is to minimize endless and expensive symptom relief, unnecessary emergency room (ER) visits, and utilize healthcare efficiently. Businesses and individuals can not only save years of healthcare costs but also improve healthcare quality and productivity. These only take 1/3-1/2 of their one-year healthcare cost to set up. Our success started at the clinic in 2004. It is time to look at the big picture and think differently!”
Studies found about 70% of primary clinical visits are stress-related (emerge or worsen under stress), for example, heart attack, stroke, insomnia, burnout, diabetes and obesity. The leading cause of stress is the lack of the right tool(s) to meet challenges, relax and restore self. To find the missing tool(s) BESIDES relieving symptoms is the key to minimize the 70% visits. Otherwise, businesses and individuals need to pay endless and expensive symptom relieves, including ER visits, BECAUSE HOSPITALS ARE NOT set to find the missing tools. You can find case studies in this video:
In addition to unnecessary ER visits, many chronic illnesses, disabilities, and deaths can be avoided if individuals can learn how to utilize healthcare system and recognize unethical and poor doctors efficiently. How Ms. Yang recovered her mother and herself are two good examples.
TPS Dream & Power provides what is missing in traditional approaches: healthcare cannot handle non-health causes, many people treat healthcare as hospital care, and traditional IQ, EQ and behavior tools alone have limited power over non-IQ and non-EQ issues and cannot avoid stress-related health issues (SRHI) efficiently. TPS Dream & Power empower leaders, managers, and elites based on the mistakes found at the clinics and businesses as well as efficient ways to meet challenges, stay healthy and bring the best performance.
“Find Your Missing Tools, See Doctors Less” is one diagnostic program, helping individuals with SRHI find the missing tools to meet their current challenges. Individuals often get well quickly with minimum re-occurrence and require no or fewer follow-up clinical visits and associated drug, treatments, time and money. TPS Dream & Power also helps clients build smart systems, anticipate development needs, especially health needs, and get ready quickly for their upcoming challenges. TPS Dream & Power loves feedback and new ideas and will continue challenging status quo and perfecting its services.

Many people do not understand why CEO stress has anything to do with CEO health. In fact, the two are closely connected.
Recently, the health of Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple, has raised a national discussion. Many people think that his health is not his private matter because so many others depend upon him. Some even have raised a stock security issue. Forbes has pointed out that the Apple CEO turned to cancer removal surgery eight months after the diagnosis. Would there be less unfortunate issues to begin with if leaders could take better care of themselves?
When talking about how to be a CEO, people usually do not think about sustainability at times of unexpected change, intense stress, illness or injury. Unfortunately, life is full of unexpected challenges, which can disable our mind, or even take away our success. It takes a different set of skills to sustain our optimal creativity and health than to utilize them. It is important to have both. An unfortunate outcome affects not only the key person, but also his/her family, partners, colleagues, employees and more.
Can You Count on Doctors?
People tend to count on doctors for their health. However, how we handle illnesses before and after seeing doctors can mean life or death, recovery or disability. Although I had excellent medical training, I could have lost my mother had I not questioned the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) physicians after a tragic auto-accident. My mother suffered a cervical-2 fracture. Even after five weeks of intensive care, she could not get off of the ventilator. Her ICU physicians “concluded” that she would be ventilator-dependent for the rest of her life. My mother refused to live on a machine. I never doubted the ICU physicians. But at the last moment, I chose to do my own assessment and found that she did not breathe efficiently. Through a new way of breathing I taught her, my mother was taken off the ventilator successfully after only three days!
In another example, a prestigious rehab center had some very well known experts in Traumatic brain injury (TBI). These experts concluded that the poor impulse control secondary to TBI was incurable since they could not find the cure. A resident physician with a history of TBI had one unfortunate incident. These experts linked the incident with her past injury, and concluded that she had a poor impulse control and could not handle stress. They took away her residency training at the last minute even through her references from clinical training prior were excellent. Instead of telling her their reasoning, they told her something else, which has caused her a huge waste of time and money. In fact, the victim had found a way to correct the impulse control. But to these experts, if they could not find the cure, no one could! And they abandoned their own victim when their support was needed most!
Not everyone needs to go to medical school. However, we need general and systemic health knowledge about ourselves and different health systems, for example, what costly health mistakes to avoid, and how to select specialists. We need to stay in charge, especially when it is a matter of life or death, recovery or disability. A part of our 4-day Executive Synergy Program provides hands-on training in this area.
What is Missing in Your Stress Management?
According to a survey of Vistage (an international organization for CEOs), 100 percent of 2,400 participating CEOs are suffering stress. CEO stress can come from external sources, like an uncertain economy. CEO stress can also come from our body and mind, such as the examples described above. Stress, while a great motivator, can disable our thinking and creativity, which are the keys to leadership. Stress can also harm our health and emotions. To some extend, a par of how to be a CEO is how to manage CEO stress. An exceptional CEO usually manages stress at another level.
Stress management to many people is limited relaxation exercises, such as deep breathing, brisk walking, meditation, Yoga and breaks. These are not enough to handle intense CEO stress. We need to build up our personal relaxation hierarchies, which are the right tools for the right levels of stress. At The Prince Synergy, we call it “overarmed.” We need a clear mind to look into underlying causes and figure out solutions. Different people need different relaxation hierarchies.
Another common definition of stress management is “coping with stress” and “positive thinking.” We don’t have to “live with stress.” We can prevent, utilize, reduce and transform stress. We can manage stress in many ways, business, medical, legal or even “technical” ways. A CEO suffered newly onset insomnia due to insecurities of her business. None of her relaxation methods or sleeping pills worked. Sleep is very important to productivity and wellness. She could not have a real sense of security until her business thrived, which could take time. However, she could use her faith as “the sense of security” by placing it into her unconscious level. Afterward, she has been sleeping like a log every night. In addition to faith, law can also help to eliminate stress and subsequent insomnia.
Strong stress management training is even more important at times of extreme crisis, where the level of stress is highest. Some CEOs tend to check themselves into the hospital. I had a crisis in 2007, and started crisis management immediately. I used my relaxation hierarchy to keep a clear mind, and in the meantime, kept telling myself that the crisis was not the end of the world. Instead of spending time in the hospital, I worked on my solution to turn the crisis into an opportunity the same night.
Our beliefs, perceptions, standards, visions and expectations can also affect the outcome. The cases of my mother and the rehab center are also good examples of blindly following authority figures (such as the ICU physicians) and assumptions.
What we can see in society and ourselves determines how we act and what we can achieve. I did not value Eastern medicine i at medical school. After being through family injuries and personal challenges, I have appreciated its recovery and relaxation power more and more. I sometimes acupuncture myself and pick up my own herb tea for certain types of tiredness and stress. I did not know about the internet or computers in high school. What I want and can do today is different fr om what was possible back then. There are many ways to sustain our optimal levels. We won’t “see” them until we can open to them.
How we act can also affect our health and potential profoundly. A star athlete from Fargo High School joined Stanford on a four-year football scholarship. After he ran into bigger and meaner competitors, he chose to focus upon his economics major. He has since built a multi-billion-dollar investment bank. What if he had chosen steroid for temporary gain, or used drugs for temporary high like many others? He would have to face more problems down the road, such as systemic injuries or issues related to addictions.
Our mind, body and stress management are one integrated system. We can be limited internally and externally. The limitations can lead to stress issues in business and health if we do not take care them efficiently. We can and need to, utilize our full internal and external resources efficiently, and prosper in business and life. Leaders should not settle with how to be a CEO, but how to be an exceptional CEO.
In summary, the skills to utilize our creativity and health and to lead are different from those to sustain the potential from unexpected change, intense stress, costly health mistakes and injury. In this age of intense competition, CEOs need these skills to stay at their optimal level and save subsequent agony from CEO stress. “Deal with Stress, Be Healthy & Happy” can identify your “missing software,” teach what you need in just a few days and help you build a firewall for your leadership. This is not only about how to be a CEO, one key individual, but also about your family, partners, colleagues, employees and more.

Fulfill Your Dream with Power, Beat Stress-related health Issues,
Many people desire to Be YOur Best & Stay Healthy.” The video below will show you with case studies why traditional education and career management cannot help you be your best efficiently but contribute to stress-related health issues, and how to find your missing tools and fulfill your dream with power. If like to know how well you do, take a free “Mini Be Your Best Quiz:”
Today, I want you to look at work, life, and health from a different angle and think differently.
Most people, from the CEOs at the Fortune 500 companies to students at universities, know if you work too hard, if something happens, you do not feel well or feel worse, rush to the hospital. That is a correct approach. However, if you only go to the hospital, most likely the same issue will keep coming back and getting worse. Why? Because you still missed the tools to meet the challenges. Many health issues emerge or get worse under stress, called stress-related health issues. They count for about 70% of primary clinical visits. We set up Dream & Power to enable people like you to be your best and stay healthy efficiently.
I first helped people deal with stress and stay healthy during my residency. I noticed that, usually, once I found their missing tools, many got well quickly, including the same day. Their re-occurrence rates were minimum. That is how I invented the 6Q whole system approach. Let’s have a case study.
Case Study 1: Eliminate Insomnia with the Right Law
One time I had a patient who was an attorney. Because his parents left all their money to him, nothing to his sister, his sister kept on suing the family, and he had to manage. As time passed by, he developed insomnia and anxiety. He had been to other firms before he came to me and was quite familiar with standard maneuvers, such as position change. I asked him if his family had set up a family fund. He said no. So, I told him, “Set up your family fund, so you do not have to give your 40% to Uncle Sam. Give it to your sister.” The attorney was speechless. From that day, he needed no more sleeping pills or therapies. What he needed was a right law. Once his issue was gone, his health issues disappeared.
Not all health issues are like the attorney’s insomnia. Still, meeting challenges with the right tools is critical.
Case Study 2: Beat Heart Disease
Most people know CPR. Now a person with heart disease is saved and ready to go back to work. What will happen if he cannot meet the next challenge? The person will collapse again, right?
What if we can identify the skills he needs and make learning easy and fast? What if we can also evaluate if he is on the right track and help him avoid unsuitable challenges? Can he achieve his goal easier and quicker with fewer or no health issues? Of course, he can. Our success started at clinics in 2004.
Each person has 6Q, IQ, EQ, Learning Q, Adversity Q, Public influence Q and Health Q. Doctors and hospitals mainly fix health through medicine. However, individuals also need the other 5Qs to meet their challenges, which are beyond Medicine. No one tool can solve all issues. Issues with any of these Qs, especially Adversity Q, can crash a person, and then the challenge-collapse-hospital cycle repeats, medical treatments become endless and expensive symptom relief, which only benefit some doctors and hospitals.
– Heart Cath: $7,000-11,300
– Heart Stent: $11,000-41,000
– Heart Bypass: $70,000-200,000
– Heart Transplant: $780,000- 1,200,000
The Impact of Traditional Education and Career Management
There are many other stress-related health issues, for example, burnout, headache, ulcer, stroke, fast aging, weight gain, diabetes, fibromyalgia, etc. Any health issue that emerges or gets worse under stress is stress-related.
Most people miss a few tools to meet their challenges, including self-management. Besides, poor IQ and poor EQ can result from non-IQ and non-EQ sources where IQ, EQ, and behavior tools have limited power. Then many “tough issues” in leadership & performance are created. As the world is changing fast and more “hard issues” surface, healthcare costs continue soaring every year. Besides, not every doctor and hospital want their patients to find their missing tools due to the conflict of interest.
We have reviewed that each person has 6Qs and hospitals mainly cover a part of health management. Individuals usually miss some tools in the other 5Q, including self-management, for example, relaxation and energy restoration. If we empower people with their missing tools, they should achieve their goal faster and better and have fewer or no health issues. That is what we called “Find Your Missing Tools, See Doctors Less.” However, traditional education mainly covers half of the human system.
Let’s take a look at the talent and leadership development history. It has progressed from IQ-> EQ->IQ+ EQ+ some learning Q. However, the three Qs only cover one half of the human system. Some people try to use behavior to explore the unknown parts. However, the same person can behave differently in different environments. Because all 6Qs are integrated, poor IQ and poor EQ can result from non-IQ and non-EQ sources where IQ, EQ, and behavior tools have limited power. Then many “tough issues” in leadership & performance are created. Subsequently, more stress-related issues emerge, which is why healthcare costs continue soaring every year.
Traditional career management also contributes to the cycle as it focuses on personal interest, personality and some learning and skills. In fact, we also need to know your skills, talent, and levels to determine your talent type and direction. To advance career effectively, you also need other potential and stability down the road, for example, whether you can continue learning, utilize new knowledge efficiently; if you can be cool in the storm and restore your energy efficiently. There are many other issues and solutions, including how to maintain your optimal performance. It can be very struggling for individuals to identify these additional elements, and it can be very time-consuming.
What should you do? Find missing tools to meet existing challenges and stay healthy now. In the long run, you need to get on the right track to avoid unsuitable problems, have the right tools to advance career efficiently and be your doctor first, so you can be your best and stay healthy. We provide Assessment, Consultation, Training, and Management to help you at different stages. One thing I need to mention is that your 6Q data is usually valid for 2 years in the absence of significant events, which means that you can use the same data to handle other challenges and crises.
Case Study 3: Shoot Burnout, Save His Job! Let’s have another case study. This case is about an executive who had MBA and ten years of experience at a well-known leadership consulting firm in roles from consultant to local VP. He was promoted to Regional Manager to boost regional sales and minimize turnover. Two months later, while sales remained flat, turnover got worse. In the meantime, his wife was pregnant, very unhappy as Mr. B spent a great deal of time away from home due to the new job. By the time when I met him, he was burned out, contemplating if he should resign.
I did Executive 6Q Assessment for him and found many excellent characteristics in consulting and leadership. He was also weak in sales, marketing, public influence, emotional expression, and energy restoration, and others. These weaknesses were not significant to a local VP but significant to a Regional Manager. There was no way I could address so many issues at one time, so I chose to optimize his emotional expression and teach him to share his professional stress with his wife, gain her support, and later connect with his clients. It was 30-minutes training. He eliminated his family crisis. A week later, he became more confident about his job.
So, through 90 minutes of assessment, 30 minutes of training, plus my staying up late to read his Executive 6Q Assessment, the man made a breakthrough and saved his job and region.
We have reviewed that work life and health are integrated, which is why health issues can have non-health causes, poor IQ, and EQ performance can result from non-IQ and non-EQ resources. Traditional education and Career management mainly reveal pieces of human performance instead of the whole. Unless we can target issues with the right tools, more hard matters and stress-related health issues will be created.
Each person is built uniquely. Unlike a computer, human performance can fluctuate under internal and external turbulence. Not everyone has what they should. However, today is no longer yesterday. By evaluating all 6Q elements, we can make wise investments. By targeting issues with the right tools, we often can achieve results in weeks or days instead of years or months, the attorney and the Regional manager are good examples.
A lot of time can be saved, and many dreams can come true. Everyone deserves to be their best and stay healthy. The 6Q technology enables you to fulfill your dream with power.
Again, look at the big picture, think differently, and then ask yourself what you need at your stage and in the long run. Above all, do not give up before consulting The Prince Synergy Dream & Power even if your issue is impossible to anyone else! I mean ANYONE else!
Mr. B, 38, with MBA and ten years of experience at a well-known leadership consulting firm in roles from consultant to local VP, was promoted to Regional Manager to boost regional sales and minimize turnover. Two months later, sales remained flat, and turnover had increased. His pregnant wife was very unhappy as he spent a great deal of time away from home due to the new job. His burnout was so bad that he was contemplating resignation when he met us.
Work from Inside Out
The Executive 6Q Assessment found Mr. B was an excellent consultant with many great leadership characteristics, such as decision-making, learning, EQ, persuasion, etc. However, he was weak in sales and marketing, and challenged in public influence, emotional expression, and energy restoration, and other that were not significant to a local VP.
We chose to optimize his emotion expression immediately to first take care of his family crisis so that he could recover from burnout and focus on his new job and later build intimacy with clients and colleagues. In addition, we suggested customized learning to target the rest issues.
Recover from Burnout, Focus on His New Role
Through 30 minutes of training, he learned how to share his professional stress with his wife, win her understanding and support, and eliminated his family problems. With the same skills, he also learned how to connect with clients and colleagues more deeply. One week later, he gained more confidence with his new role and could connect with clients and colleagues more deeply.
After just 90 min assessment and 30 min training, Mr. B recovered from burnout, made a breakthrough, and saved his job and region.
Burnout is very common in workplace, secondary to stress. Enough rest, exercise and social support are good but too general. Individuals can recover quickly if we can get to the root cause and target issues with the right tools. The above case is a good example.
Have you wonder what would happen had he gone to a coach to discover the solution on his own? Why his leadership firm could not anticipate his development needs or support him efficiently during the crises? You can find the answer in What Stop Leaders from Good to GreatChapter 8.
In order to build stronger leaders of tomorrow, we need to strengthen child education today. Here are several critical issues that we have found in child study.
1. What Fits Adults May Not Fit Children Unlike adults, child study has a lot to do with the management of their parents. For instance, some parents have achieved great successes in science and technology, so they strongly encourage children to do the same. What if the children are Shakespeare, Michael Jackson, and Muhammad Ali? Going where they do not fit, the children will run into more challenges, setbacks, and failures than successes. Learning can improve skills but never create geniuses. Career planning should start with children as well.
2. How Children Study Is Different Most people believe that hard-working and motivations are the key to study well. In fact, there are more ways as well as more rules in child study. For example, one student studied very hard, only slept a few hours a day and had almost no break. While her parents were proud of her hard-working, her grades remained poor. After 30 minutes assessment, we suggested letting her sleep enough and have enough breaks and exercises. Two weeks, her ranking improved 40 spots in her grade! Each person has different ways to maintain their optimal brain and body power, so do children. We need to take customized actions to fasten learning, called Custom Fast Learning.
3. How Children Handle Setbacks Is Different
How to handle setbacks and failures is critical to each child, especially the smart ones. Studies have found that early successors often crush far worse than others since they have not exercised their muscle to be resilient. I have met many of early successors at hospitals for various stress-related health issues, for example, depression, cirrhosis (due to over drinking), addiction, suicide, etc. The CEOs at Fortune 500 who have to “retire early” often have low Adversity Quotient.
Unlike adults, children may show nothing under setbacks or failure but can take dramatic action! Being their friends and knowing how to handle setbacks and failures are the most efficient way to win their trust and help them grow. In addition, it is much easier to strengthen this piece of muscle before they have too many successes and too much proud. Furthermore, if we strengthen their Adversity Quotient now, there will be fewer setbacks and failures for us to handle in the future.
4. Children Need Faster Health Care The #1 cause of death in children is Accident, and their health can be worse and better faster than adults. Most people called 911 or rush children to Emergency Room when this happens. One 18-y old boy got choked. His parents called 911 immediately. The ambulance arrived in 10 minutes; however, the boy was already dead. Why? The human brain can only live without Oxygen for around 6-7 minutes. The couple almost ended up in divorce. Many children and adults get to the hospital too late, which makes small issues big and big ones hard or impossible. Our first doctors are not those in the hospital, but ourselves or the people around us.
Due to their unique development stage, children need extra guidance and support. It is essential to assess adult management and child study at the same time. Like adults, each child is an integrated system of ability, health, and relations with self and society. It is better to look at the big picture instead of Psychology, Health or other parts only, so children can grow healthier and happier and gain more confidence. Early actions on common issues are often critical but straightforward, and each child can be a great leader or a key performer in the future.
You can be not only the leader of your company or community but also the leader of the next generation. Some companies pay employees to help their children study. In fact, they can shoot 2 issues with one stone–empower their employees so that they can manage self and children. If talents are your extended arms and legs to achieve your business goal, you and The Prince Synergy are each other’s extended arms and legs to build a stronger next generation.
