Master Li Ch’ing Yuen, a Chinese herbalist, was born in 1678 in the hill country of southwest China. While still a “young man” of 50 , he met a venerable old sage who maintained his exquisite health by drinking a soup daily made from tonic herbs. Master Li started drinking this broth.
Master Li met several more elderly sages and learned secrets of longevity from each. His efforts and commitment were well rewarded; he lived to the age of 252, was married 14 times and lived through 11 generations of his own descendants ( almost 200 in his lifetime).
Master Li died in 1930 after a banquet in his honor. In case you don’t believe this story, modern-day scholars have verified his age.
