Mental health management is not just a mind management as the outside world and challenges as well as internal and external resources can all impact its outcome. The same challenge can excite one person but depress another. Also, what can get a person here may not get the same person there. On the other hand, mental health can significantly impact how individuals meet challenges.
Different Approaches, Different Results
Traditional approach focuses on individuals (personal development, coping skills, and past performance), and uses behavior tools before individuals are “ill’ and Western medicine afterwards. Some people stigmatize others with “mental issues.” Partial tools cannot solve all issues, and the right attitude is the first step to take the right action.
How to Handle Mental Health Issues Efficiently?
Depend on the level of issues and individuals’ capacity.
Common mental health issues can be pathological and need medication, such as bipolar. Non-pathological ones often need no medication but may require great analysis and physical and psychological care, for example, burnout. Individuals usually need experts for the first group and can try to work with the second one if they know how.
Mental health management is a key part of personal and team management. The more stress a person needs to handle, the more skills the person should have. One efficient way to optimize individuals’ productivity and maintain their mental health is place them at the right environment.
How Can BYBSH Clinic Help You?
We assess individual mental health management through the 6Q Assessment and empower them according to their personal and environmental needs. We also help individuals and businesses know their talent, make wise placements or investment, strengthen and restore their physical and mental health if needed.
Contact BYBSH Clinic with your issue even if it is impossible to anyone else.
ABSTRACT: Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) survivors often have a higher risk of suicides, especially Veterans, as they are told that they mainly recover within 2 years and need to settle for less. That is not true. Many survivors can regain their key cognitive function through a new technology and pursue their dreams again. Billions of healthcare costs can be saved. The author will share with you her recovery story and her patients’.
I am astonished that Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) affects 450,000 veterans, per CDC, and 22 commit suicide each day. In fact, many of them can regain their key cognitive function and go back to work through 6Q cognitive rehab.
How could this happen? Many TBI survivors have been told that they can achieve maximum recovery in 2 years (called 2-year plateau), should accept the next level of placement, and TBI is a chronic illness. The conclusion IS NOT TRUE as their uninjured brain cells have the same DNA and NO 2-year plateau, and many “post-injury illnesses” will go away or be easily corrected if survivors know that they can regain their key function. However, not many people know the latest technology. Nothing can ensure individuals’ rights, freedom, opportunities, and justice better than their brainpower. Those refuse to settle for less often commit suicide, such as veterans. I know the pain as I was almost there.
I suffered Traumatic Brain Injury due to an auto-accident in 1997, and most experts predicted that I had a remote chance to recover. However, it was too painful for me to settle for less. Before jumping into the ocean, I told myself, “why not try something new since you are not afraid of dying? You are a doctor yourself!” Then I decided to apply for a medical license and train my uninjured brain cell with new tools. Thanks God, I made it. I passed 3 steps of medical license exams in 2001~2003, and receive excellent letters of recommendation at the clinics. I have helped every TBI survivor I met at the clinics, who were 5-12 years beyond their 2-year plateau, and all achieved significant results, including their “chronic issues.”
WHAT IMPEDES THE RECOVERY FROM TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY?
Both tools and human beings. Somehow, traditional approach contributes to the 2-year plateau.
1. Limited Cognitive Restorationa. Limited Tools:
What is missing in today’s TBI rehab is full cognitive restoration. Most cognitive programs use limited IQ, behaviors or Psychology tools and prepare TBI survivors to accept “the next level of placement.” However, nothing can be more painful, frustrating, depressive, and stressful to individuals than unable to be who they are and do what they need. Then various post-injury illnesses emerge.
The brain rehab I went to mainly helped me stay alive, no fall and no choke, which was essential but did not help me regain cognitive function and get back to who I was. Doctors mostly knocked on my knees and elbows (reflex check) during follow-up visits. Psychologists mainly let me express my fear and struggle and then advised me to accept my “new life.”
However, TBI victims need to be who they were. they need to find missing tools, learn fast, and fully utilize Eastern and Western medicine and non-healthcare 6Q tools, which is the 6Q approach. First, poor IQ performance can have non-IQ causes as each person is an integrated system of 6Qs: IQ, EQ, Learning Q, Adversity Q, Public Influence Q, and Health Q. Cognitive training and stimulation have limited impact. Behaviors or Psychology tools mainly reflect the 6Q system. Second, it is critical to make learning easy as the learning can be massive, and TBI survivors need to see results quickly to stay motivated. Western medicine has limited power at the chronic stage.
Once TBI survivors know that they can regain their brainpower, many secondary issues can be easily corrected or go away. Here is one example.
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 I got the root cause of his behaviors.
b. Limited Focus
Years of studies have found that injured brain cells have 2-year plateau. However, uninjured brain cells have NO 2-year plateau but have the same DNA and learning capacity. Other 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. I had the chance to help one.
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. I had already read his medical history and could always ask his mother if needed. He was very slow initially, but he answered all my questions. Then I gave him some homework, 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.
2. Ignorance and Resistance
Some “experts” refuse to believe that others can solve the problems that they cannot. They label the TBI survivors with the “disabilities” that they think should be there, take away others’ opportunities… it is astonishing and heartbreaking to watch these happening, especially when those experts are someone who you have trusted and respected.
Some experts simply do not want their existing programs diluted and interfered even 22 veterans commit suicide each day.
3. Legal Impact
Some attorneys only focus on making money and disregard their clients’ futures. I had the accident that led to TBI on my way to work, so I 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.
HOW TO BRING DREAMS BACK TO LIFE FROM TBI BEYOND THE “2-YEAR PLATEAU?”
1. Every Step Counts!First, it is critical to save life, minimize damage, and preserve non-injured brain cells at the acute stage. I could recover well also because the accident happened in a winter evening, so I could benefit from hypothermia therapy instantly. The hospital at Amarillo TX 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.
At last, restore cognitive function via 6Q cognitive rehab instead of partial. Then individuals can go back to who they were and be contributors to the society instead of depressed by “the next level of placement.”
2. Who Can Benefit from the 6Q Cognitive Restoration?
It can take a lot to regain cognitive function. Those who want to commit suicide due to TBI have far better chances to fully recover since they are highly motivated. I know as I almost became one of them. I tried everything I possibly could and found the 6Q cognitive rehab.Can anyone benefit from the 6Q cognitive restoration? No, only those who can learn and are motivated.
Those with “chronic health issues” should have 6Q cognitive restoration and medical symptom relieves at the same time. Currently, we prefer all participants who have been discharged from the hospital and are medically stable.
3. How We Design the Program? What to Expect?
In general, we design custom program for each victim, based on their potential, previous job, unique learning needs and challenges. On the one hand, we make learning as easy and fun as possible internally and externally, so TBI survivors can see results quickly to stay motivated. Victims can practice at our virtual business and add this on their resume as their working experience after injury. We also enhance their internal healing to maximize their cognitive restoration.
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.
4. How Much Can We Save in TBI?
Per CDC, about 5.3 million survivors are living with a “permanent” TBI-related disability in the US, including 450,000 veterans. One TBI survivor costs $85,000 to $3 million for treatments and a disability benefit (DB) for living. The US GDP in 2019 was 21.43 trillion. If we free 1 million TBI survivors, the saving is:
($85,000~3 million+ DB+ Tax) x 1million = $85 billion ~3 trillion + 1 million DB+ 1 million Tax.
Veterans have a higher suicide risk than civilians. Up to 53% of the homeless are affected by a brain injury. In fact, many of them can regain key cognitive function, go back to work, and live in their home. However, not many of them know the 6Q technology. Please share this article with those in needs.
5. Who Offer Financial Support to TBI Recovery?
At this time, we offer discounts to those in urgent needs, especially veterans. We cannot control our vetting process with VA except trying our best.
For those who desire to double their impact, it is an excellent time to act as we offer a 20% discount on all of our leadership and health programs to raise more funds.
Many states have a trust fund to help TBI survivors learn new skills due to the high unemployment rate and a large amount of life treatment costs, and many TBI survivors are eligible for their state financial assistance. For example,
New Jersey TBI FUNDDirector: Peri Nearon11A Quakerbridge Plaza, Mercerville NJ 08625-0700Tel: 888-285-3036
Louisiana Traumatic Head and Spinal Cord Injury Trust FundManager: Tonia GedwardLDH Office of Aging and Adult ServicesTel: (225) 219-9935

Nothing can ensure individuals’ rights, freedom, opportunities, and justice better than their brainpower. It is too painful not to be whom ones are and accept “the next level,” which is why many secondary health issues emerge post TBI, and 22 veterans can commit suicide each day.
With the right tools and focuses, many TBI survivors can regain key function, be who they are, and pursue their freedom again. Society can not only save tons of disability benefits, $85,000 to $3 million treatment costs per survivor but also gets more happy taxpayers.
Do not commit suicide. Try something new if you are not afraid of dying. If others and I could make it, so can you. Different approaches do make different results. Those who refuse to settle for less have far better chances to recover since they are highly motivated.
Nothing can stop suicides better than a real hope. Please share this article with those in need.

The press was sent out on 08.19.08,10:32 AM ET, received press on Forbes, Yahoo, Market, etc. Yet the fact remained unchanged till today– The Prince Synergy Beats Harvard in Full Recovery of Traumatic Brain Injury. We have kept a copy of the press on Forbes, and the full text is below. 2022 is coming. Together, we can bring more dreams back to life from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). In the meantime, we can minimize COVID-19 infection as a part of our 6Q cognitive restoration is to work at our virtual business and participants will be busy “working at home.” Click here for more details.
Los Angeles, CA August, 18, 2007– The Prince Synergy (www.ThePrinceSynergy.com), a leading resource in human capital, announces its full recovery record in Traumatic Brain Injury, including poor impulse control secondary to the injury. A full recovery from Traumatic Brain Injury has been a tough issue even to Harvard University, which The Prince Synergy has unexpectedly discovered recently.
When asked the significance of the recovery, Dr. Bin Yang, CEO and Founder of The Prince Synergy, said, “Victims can regain more freedom. Businesses can reduce more costs in disability and worker’s compensation. A full recover is possible even two years after the injury. The poor impulse control can be cured.”
Traumatic Brain Injury takes away victims’ freedom and opportunities internally, which makes this injury extremely painful. The victims’ cognitive difficulties also make the recovery harder. Other obstacles include lack of deep knowledge and efficient treatment options, bias against brain injury victims and a slow and stressful recovery process. Some professionals and family members abuse victims and systems, which is the worst drawback toward a full recovery.
Some parts of the recovery take special skills. The Prince Synergy offers 2 days hands-on recovery training. The program enables victims to sharpen their insights into experts and themselves, utilize full resources, strike to recover from inside out, and get back to work and life fast. This program is also very beneficial to victims’ families. The Prince Synergy welcomes partners and investors in research and expansion of human potential horizon.

This is a story how a super healthy physician was tortured to develop a heart attack, nearly lost her life and business, and found the breakthrough in heart attack to recover herself through the 6Q Approach.
I finally understand why heart attack is the #1 cause of death for men and women and cost millions of dollars per person after I went through one myself. I like to share how I found the breakthrough as many lives, dreams, and dollars can be saved.
With more tools, many survivors can learn to manage challenges to minimize stress, enhance healing, recover faster, and save 80~90% of costs. You will understand why if you know my story.
I was super healthy with no risk facts and no family or personal history of heart attack before I had an auto-accident early last year. A man suddenly cut in front of me while I was driving on my right way. I did not go to the emergency room (ER) right way as I had other urgent issues and was going to take care of myself since I am an excellent doctor.
The man had a policy enough to repair my car and cover my initial injury and time losses. However, his insurance company, Mercury Insurance Company (Mercury), tricked me to take my car to its dealer to drive the repair cost up over 100% while depreciating my car value almost 40%. Once they claimed my car a total loss, they could end my rental in 5 days instead of 25~30 days to repair my car. I asked Mercury to fix my car at the body shop that did initial evaluation. However, Mercury refused.
The accident was not my fault. Instead of taking care of me, Mercury set me up, made me put down my urgent issues to find a new car in 5 days or re-register my car within 20 days. These made me incredibly angry, unable to sleep, sweat a lot… At one period, I could have chest pain if I thought about Mercury or talked to someone at Mercury. I had to go to ER for chest pain a few days later. Mercury did not care.
I decided to pay for additional rental and repair my car to save time for more important issues but only discovered more set up waiting for me– I ALSO had to pass brake tests, light tests, smog check, and go to DMV again and again in order to re-register my care. In the meantime, Mercury pressed me to sign away my personal damage and losses for a few hundred dollars, which was not enough to cover one ER visit!! The outrageous meanness and abuse made me even angrier. Soon, I was admitted to the hospital for positive Troponin (heart attack diagnostic test). Hospital told me to avoid ALL stress but could not be specific.
I was afraid to talk to their claim adjuster after discharged from the hospital. However, the adjuster was eager to call me, email me and send me letters to press me to accept $3000 for my ENTIRE medical costs and personal losses, especially after he knew he could push me right back to my doctors by making me angry. Thus, I had to go back to ER, see cardiologists, explore 6Q tools, and visit Eastern Medicine doctors…
I Decided to Recover Myself from Heart Attack
My first cardiologist told me that I had Takotsubo Syndrome (Broken Heart Syndrome) and advised me to let go the car accident and “Avoid ALL Stress.” Heart attack is directly related to physical and mental stress. Unexpected or abusive challenges often exacerbate the stress. No risk facts and family history does not spare everyone. I am a perfect example.
However, it is impossible for me to carry my career and business without a super healthy heart. To let go such an abuse and torture and end my career and business, I would become a living dead and cost millions of healthcare dollars and social benefits. I always knew that the 6Q approach that I initially invented to recover myself from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) due to another auto-accident to pass medical licensing exams could benefit heart attack victims greatly and had helped some patients at clinics. Thus, I decided to recover myself with the 6Q Approach, and my strategy was to meet challenges with the right tools to minimize stress and enhance healing to further minimize stress’ impact on my heart. The 6Qs are IQ, EQ, learning Q, Public Influence Q, Adversity Q and Health Q (self-care and Eastern & Western med).
My first cardiologist discharged me from his practice since we had “different philosophies.” My second cardiologist could not offer more than expensive assessments before my symptoms become severe enough for tent, bridge, bypass, transplant, etc. I am glad that neither used B-blockers and ACE inhibitors to minimize stress’ impact on my heart. I will tell you why later.
I Made It, and Ready to Meet More Challenges
I made it. My heart’s ejection fraction rate has increased close to the optimal level of function in one year, and I was able to stand up for my rights and protect my life and business. It feels great to be able to be who I am, do what I need, overcome obstacles one after another, and there are more challenges to meet.
By the time I went to the court with Mercury, Judge Audra Mori not only helped Mercury walk away from the default, deprived my rights to sue Mercury for the 1st Mercury-made heart attack, but also granted Mercury “the right” to abuse discoveries to torture me to suffer 2nd heart attack and sanction me for protecting my life (S273292). It turned out that she was a managing director at Los Angeles for Perkins Coie that represents those tech companies who hack our business. She wanted to leave me almost nothing and stress me to kneel for life so that her clients can get our business at “a good price.” Yet, her supervisors found either her doing was not unethical or the case was not extraordinary.
Nothing can be more unethical and extraordinary than to grant Mercury the right to torture their victim to suffer 2nd heart attack to help her clients outside, given heart attack is #1 cause of death for men and women, 1 in 4 deaths! Unlike George Floyd, I can still breathe because the 6Q Approach I invented. Still, I need your support for justice.
Chest pain relapses sometimes. I quickly pull out my new tools, and they work. Once again, I have found that nothing can ensure our dream, life, success and happiness better than our inner power in the world full of harsh challenges. Survivors like me often need extra care to protect their inner power, which is worth it.
What Is Missing in Traditional Treatments for Heart Attack?
The key management in heart attack is stress management. Traditional treatment mainly asks survivors to Avoid ALL Stress or minimizes stress’ impact on heart with B-blockers and ACE inhibitors. Tent, bridge, bypass, transplant, and other life support can help to relieve blood occlusion when symptoms become severe enough.
However, “Avoid All Stress” is equal to ask heart attach survivors to let go ANYTHING for life, which is unrealistic to most survivors, including me. B-blockers and ACE inhibitors can minimize their optimal performance besides stress’ impact on victims’ heart, which can take away many dreams and opportunities (I cannot always achieve my goal even when I am 100%, not to mention 70~80%). These are why heart attack is still the # 1 cause of death for men and women. The average healthcare costs and productivity losses in heart attack is about $760,000 to $1 million in 20 years, per National Business Group on Health.
In fact, many survivors can keep their dreams, minimize life support and save big money like me if we can assess them at macro and micro levels and fully utilize different tools at different stages, which the 6Q Approach.
1. Manage Challenges with More Tools to Minimize Stress
Studies at the University of California at Long Beach found that the more control individuals have, the less stress they suffer. It is OK to meet daily challenges with some IQ and EQ tools and being positive. However, it often requires to explore the whole 6Q system to find skills and strategies needed to meet complex challenges and make learning and implementation easy. Then stress will decrease significantly, which takes away the big root cause for heart attack.
In my case, it is insurance fraud to deprive the benefits to which victims are entitled. It is malice to set a super healthy person up, torture her to develop a heart attack, push her back to the hospital and clinic over and over. It is unconstitutional and inhuman to grant Mercury the right to torture their victim to suffer 2nd heart attack to help her clients outside. Mercury has attempted to utilize the “new legal right!” Would you let them go if you were me?
I believe you will not, either. To do so, I first need not to let them crush me. Thus, I started to analyze myself, explore my 6Q tools, try them out, and then restarted the process as I was pushed back to the hospitals or clinics over and over. Eventually, I’ve found the tools I need and learned to avoid extreme.
2. Enhance Healing to Minimize Stress’ Toxicity
In addition to minimizing stress size, we can also enhance healing to reduce stress’ toxicity before the stress can impact our heart. Most people are familiar with diet, exercise, no smoking, no drug, which are Western medicine and some non-health ways. We can also optimize healing with other 6Q tools and Eastern medicine. Then victims will rely less on medications and have more chances to recover like me. For those with other health issues, it is always great to shut two or more issues with the same medicine.
In my case, I also went to Eastern medicine for additional support after fully I utilized the 6Q tools and Western medicine, which is another reason why I made it.
3. Who Can Benefit from the 6Q Approach?
What has happened to me can happen to others. For the same reason, others can also get well faster like me if they meet these criteria.
The more stress can impact their heart, the more the 6Q approach can help. The better the victims can learn, the faster they get well, and the better they can stay well.
Individuals with Takotsubo Syndrome can benefit from the 6Q Approach the most as their heart attack typically follows an emotional or physical stressor, and victims often have no family history or risk facts. With additional tools, many victims can recover before they need life support if they act early through the 6Q Approach. My case is an excellent example.
Those with family history and risk facts, such as Atherosclerosis, Diabetes and Hypertension, have more reasons to minimize stress in a realistic and efficient way than to “Avoid ALL Stress” or minimize stress impact over their heart at the price of their optimal performance. Then treatments for their underlying issues have better chance to solve or control their underlying issues. Efficient stress management also makes it easier for them to quit poor stress management like smoking, drinking, food, and drugs. Optimal internal healing will give victims more chances to recover faster or stay well better.
How I discovered the breakthrough in heart attack may sound brutal, but that is the reality for many heart attack victims as they need to risk their life to do what is needed or stand up for their rights.
Still, victims can find additional tools through the 6Q Approach to manage challenges to minimize stress and enhance healing before stress can impact their heart. Then many survivors can minimize life support, do what they need except extremes, keep their opportunities and dreams, stay healthy and save big money. And heart attack does not have to be the #1 cause of death for men and women.

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.
– 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, heart attack, insomnia, burnout, fast aging, obesity, and diabetes. 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.
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 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.
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.
In the meantime, healthcare issues among employees often can reflect the missing tools in leadership and talent management, for example, recruitment, talent tasking, and institutional strategy. By knowing the development needs, businesses and individuals can take early action. For more information, please visit “4 Keys to Optimizing Corporate Leadership Development” and “How to Be an Exceptional CEO?”
Here are some common mistakes.
* 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.
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, empower yourself with the right tools, and target issues efficiently. 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.

Takotsubo Syndrome, also called broken heart syndrome or stress cardiomyopathy, has the common symptoms and labs of heart attacks but does not result from blood vessel occlusion but apical ballooning. Takotsubo Syndrome predominates in menopausal women (90%), elites and others who have NO family history and NO risk facts. Traditional healthcare cannot help victims until they need life support. In fact, many victims can recover before they need life support like me, minimize re-occurrence and save 80~90% of costs.
Women’s immunity often decreases significantly after menopause although their temperature and blood pressure are normal. Subsequently, they can metabolize stress’ toxicity less, which magnifies the stress’ negative impact over their heart. Then they can easily become victims of Takotsubo Syndrome and other heart attack when intense emotional or physical stress emerge in their work or life.
Intensive stress often victimize men and other women. Stress can be a great motivator. However, studies have found that intensive stress can not only negatively impact on individuals’ heart but also suppress their immunity. The latter can reduce the metabolism of stress’ toxicity and magnify the stress’ negative impact on the heart. No family history and no health issues or risk facts do not spare everyone. I am a good example.
Takotsubo Syndrome typically follows intense emotional stress (such as a big dispute or loss) or physical stress (such as a stroke or infection). Pathology found that its apical ballooning at the acute stage is related to a surge in stress-related hormones. Traditional healthcare (Western medicine) mainly provide life support during the acute stage, often 21-day hospitalization, and asks victims to “Avoid ALL Stress” or restricts heart’s response to stress through pills before and after.
However, it is unrealistic for most people to “Avoid ALL Stress.” For example, will you let go an insurance company who set you up and tortured you to develop a heart attack and then let go those who want to rob your business because of the heart attack? Most people will say “NO” as I did in 2021. In addition, pills can also restrict their optimal performance– the key to their success.
With additional tools, many men and women can manage challenges to minimize the size of stress. Some can also improve their immunity to minimize the toxicity of the remaining stress. Then they have a great chance to recover or stay well better, keep their opportunities for success, and save 80~90% of costs.
Each person is an integrated 6Q system linked with the outside world (IQ, EQ, Learning Q, Public Influence Q, Adversity Q and Health Q). Health issues can have non-health causes, and poor stress management can also have non-IQ and non-EQ causes. In addition, each tool has its own comfort zone, including Western medicine.
We assess individuals at macro and micro levels, explore all associated causes, and fully utilize health and non-health tools (6Q) at different stages. Thus, we often can solve the issues that others cannot or provide faster and better results.
1. Those whose heart condition gets worse under stress or challenge-meeting.2. To whom it is unrealistic to “Avoid All Stress” or give up optimal performance (key to success).3. Those who have family histories or risk facts.4. Those who can learn fast.
Victims often begin to see results in days and achieve optimal results or recover in 3~8 months after they join the program, “Beat Heart Attack, Save Dream, Life and Money!”
Heart attack does not have to be the #1 cause of death for men and women, including Takotsubo Syndrome. With additional tools, many men and women can save not only their lives but also opportunities for success and big money. Traditional healthcare can also work better for those with underlying health issues (we work with individuals’ current doctors).
Most people know that they need to stay healthy to be their best. In fact, they also need to do their best to stay healthy. Be Your Best & Stay Healthy Clinic help individuals and businesses take care of both with the right tools . The 6Q assessment data are usually good for 2 years, which allows victims to get additional guidance from the clinic without repeating the assessment even they are thousand miles away.

“Be Your Best” is not only a goal but also a mean to achieve the goal. Individuals often have different priorities at different stages. Be Your Best with the right tools, save time and money! You can try out our free tools.
Can Behavior or EQ alone Build a Level 5 Leader?
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.
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.
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.
———————————————————————————How well do you manage stress? Take a quick assessment———————————————————————————
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. It is not hard to identify your “missing software” and build a firewall for your leadership in just a few hours. This is not only about how to be a CEO, one key individual, but also about your family, partners, colleagues, employees and more.

Business owner Mr. T was admitted to the hospital again for heart disease. Although his father had heart disease, many of his siblings were healthy. Mr. T enjoyed his work and family and had a good business. However, he could only sleep 4-5 hours whenever something new coming to him, and insomnia often lasted for days. Then he had to be admitted to the hospital. His cardiologist told him that he would need open heart surgery or a heart transplant if his condition got worse. The latter costs $780,000~1,200,000.
Did the cardiologist miss anything? Most people would say no, but the answer is incorrect.Good sleep is a critical part of Mr. T’s recovery, which sleeping pills cannot solve. We should identify why he could not handle new events, teach him the skills he missed or choose the right alternatives. This part is beyond traditional healthcare and leadership tools.
The Executive 6Q Assessment found that Mr. T had development needs in daily self-management, from work, relaxation, and sleep hygiene. No leadership, career and other significant issues. After a series of exercises, Mr. T could sleep well. Then his heart disease stopped getting worse, lab test results came back better, and his hospitalization dropped from 4-5 times/year to 1 time in the first year. Then he could remain stable on medication.
Heart disease is often directly stress-related. Survivors often lack the right tools to meet challenges. In the above case, the challenge is unable to sleep well after new event emerges. Without getting to the root causes, treatments and their costs can advance quickly. This principle applies to about 70% of health issues.
Life is full of unexpected challenges. Many individuals burnout and cannot get their job done. Some even lose their jobs. In fact, many of them can recover in days, if not hours, and get job done well or keep their jobs through the 6Q Approach. Here is one example.
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 Great Chapter 8.
