Abstract: The chapter titled Discussion on the Regular Five-Motions in Suwen (Plain Questions, Vol.1 of Huangdi's Internal Classics) discusses five motions, natural geography, six qi, six transformation and treatment based on pattern identification. It also states that human being should follow the main principle of maintaining normal qi by striking a dynamic balance between yin and yang, acivity and inactivity, engendering and inhibiting relations as the norm while living in the complex system of nature and society. This chapter aligns with the theory of Chinese Physics (Gezhi), embodies the idea of unity beween nature and human, and highlights the naturalized life perspectives. This paper analyzes the naturalized life perspectives from the following three aspects: firstly, using the yin-yang properpety of five-motion six-qi theory as the headrope to pull the mesh of originality and essence of humanity and life; secordly, taking Hetu Luoshu diagram as an example to analyze qi of yin and yang (high, low, greater or lesser), observe the manifestations of diseases to grasp the pathogenesis of yin-yang exuberance and debilitation. The internal naturalized generating, growing, transforming, collecting, and storing motions result in normal qi. Finally, regularity is the aim of naturalized life perspectives. We need to inherit the essence of Chinese gezhi ideology, optimize the medical humanistic environment, and lift up the intellectual and spiritual perspectives of health care providers.
