According to Figure 1 of this paper, Soy protein @56 gram a day normalizes the testosterone level. The SP#2 drops from an extreme high level of 1300 ng/dl (that may cause prostate cancer) to about 500 ng/dl. Excluding SP#2, the average testosterone level increases slightly. Soy protein intake @56 grams a day produces a positive result accordingly. However, I recommend 30 grams a day for better sex (lasting longer) and prostate health.  Soy + Zinc is good your liver to reduce the aromatase enzyme release.

soyproteinBy the way, you should have a balance diet with random intake of proteins, animal or plant sources. You should not consider soy is the only main source of your protein intake. Personally, I like sea-food proteins.

The Anal Breathing QiGong is for Vagus Nerve Stimulation,  and for Parasympathetic Nerve (S1-S5)  Stimulation well, which promote neuroimmunity.  http://www.actionlove.com/WordPress/2013/03/24/introduction-of-dr-lins-anal-breathing-qi-gong-also-known-as-the-vagus-and-spinal-nervous-stimulation/

Studies shows the  higher vagal activity may even protect against the adverse effects of advanced cancer stage.  Qigong VNS for cancer patients

External Qigong (外功) vs. Internal Qigong (内功)

External Qigong (外功) vs.  Internal Qigong (内功)

Brain-stimulation1-30Vagus-spinalNerves2External Qigong (外功):
Using the skeletal muscle to generate sensory nervous pulses to the cerebellum, the hypothalamus, the thalamus,  and the cerebral cortex via the somatic, parasympathetic  and sympathetic nerves is called External Qigong(外功).  Besides the direct  linking to the cerebellum, the thalamus,  and the cerebral cortex, the somatic nervous sensor couples the stimulating signal to the parasympathetic  and sympathetic nerves via the reflex arc of an interneuron synapse in the spinal cord disc. It is a reversal dermatome reflex: somatic sensor (in the dermatome zone) => interneuron synapse => parasympathetic  or/and sympathetic nerves => hypothalamus. Thus, the external Qigong can alternate the visceral function, as well. When you massaging your dermatome reflex zones, your visceral organs will get noticed.
For example, massaging your belly will improve your digestive/intestine function.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dermatome_(anatomy)

Internal Qigong (内功):
Using the smoothing muscle of visceral  organs to generate sensory nervous pulses to the thalamus and hypothalamus via the vagus, parasympathetic and sympathetic nerves is called Internal Qigong (内功). The main benefit of the Internal Qigong  is a result of vagus nerve stimulation (VNS)without an external electric stimulation device – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vagus_nerve_stimulation
We use the pelvic organs, including the bladder, urogenital, and upper-anal/rectal smooth muscles to do VNS jobs.  This means the dopamine-thalamus-hypothalamus-pituitary axis is activated by the vagus nerve sensors in the pelvic organs.

The bioelectric pulses are generated by piezoelectric effects of biomass such as bones, tendons, ligaments  muscles, nerves and blood vessels, or by the mechanosensory, ligand-gated,  and cyclic nucleotide-gated  ion channels in the biomass.

You can use somatic motor nerves to stretch/contract/expand/bend the skeletal muscles for massaging (stretching/contracting/expanding/bending) visceral organs in the body cavity to do both internal and external Qigoing together.

You can  stretch/contract/expand/bend skeletal muscles of the thoracic, abdominal and pelvic cavity to generate bioelectricity.  If you do it properly, you can get a major vagus/parasympathetic nervous stimulation with a minor sympathetic nervous stimulation from the cyclic stretching of epithelial Cells in the linings of the body Cavities and the visceral organ surface.Dopaminergic_pathways

1. Thoracic breathing, also known as shallow breathing is likely to stimulate the sympathetic nerves in the heart and lungs without expanding the chest cage which can not be expanded or compressed unless doing Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for vagus nerve stimulation. Qigong breathing won’t include the thoracic breathing.

2. Abdominal breathing is to stimulated the vagus and sympathetic nerve in the abdominal cavity. The visceral organs includes the stomach, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, small intestine, large intestine, appendix, colon, kidneys and adrenal glands. The abdominal organs form an bioelectric power house. Abdominal-expansion breathing is likely to dominantly stimulate the vagus nerve, while the abdominal-compression breathing is dominantly stimulate the sympathetic nerve. My Aquila Anal Breathing Qigong (more information in http://www.actionlove.com/WordPress/2014/09/22/qi-the-civil-electric-and-material-engineering-excellence-for-human-body/ ; http://www.actionlove.com/WordPress/2014/08/29/aquali-anal-breathing-qigong-induced-erection/ ) adopts the abdominal-expansion inhaling (breathing) with a natural exhaling release, in contract to the Kundalini’s the abdominal-compression breathing as shown in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBjnograjq4 and as described in  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kundalini

3. Low-abdominal and Pelvic Breathing: The Aquila Anal Breathing Qigong moves the abdominal expansion force to pump the low-abdominal/pelvic cavity (also known as “Sins Qi into DanTien”) , with the pelvic muscle stretching, and a simultaneous anal/gluteus muscle contraction (or followed by  a simultanoeus anal/gluteus muscle contraction)  to generate Qi (bioelectricity) to stimulate the thalamus and the hypothalamus-pituitary axis for the dopamine, oxytocinergic and NOergic nervous activation and then cyclic nucleotide-gated  ion channel activation.

female genital-anusThe somatic low-abdominal/pelvic muscle supports the smooth muscles and internal organs in the pelvic cavity – urogenital and rectum. The outer section (first 1/2 – 1 inches) of urogenital and anus is mainly the somatic skeletal muscle. The female G-spot and glans clitoral neck, as well as the glans penis neck and  the pectinate line (dentate line)  of the anus,  are the area (zone) composed of mixed sensors – somatic, vagus, parasympathetic S2-S4 and sympathetic L2-L3,  where the skeletal muscle joins the smooth muscle.  The somatic sensory nerve is distributed over the shallow, skeletal tissue, while the vagus, parasympathetic and sympathetic sensory nerves are inside  the smooth muscle. The genital vagus nerve alone, which bypasses the spinal cord,  can trigger orgasm in response to vaginal-cervical stimulation ( http://www.actionlove.com/download/brainresearch04.pdf .)

The deep vaginal stimulation on a spot between the bladder and cervix, known as the Epicenter in my book “Resonant Excitation Of Sexual Orgasm”, as shown above, is indeed a vagus nerve stimulation. I used “Epicenter” for this spot is due to the nature of orgasm like a sequence of internal shake waves generated at this spot. The orgasm is like an volcano eruption from here.  Recently published research papers termed it as vaginocervical stimulation (VCS): for examples,

Stimulation on the deep clitoral bulb and urethra, likely reaching the bladder, can also activate the local vagus nerve sensor.

The pelvic floor muscle stretch-contract exercise is very important to induce the blood flow and to activate the nerves to the genital area since the genital is not innervated by the somatomotor nerve, but by the somatosensory nerve which lets you feel good and exciting during touching or petting.   You can exercise/move your genital only with the pelvic floor muscle stretch and contract.  When doing this exercise, men should stretch the pelvic floor muscle first and then contract the stretched muscle back to avoid compressing the bulbourethral glands, the prostate and the seminal vesicles which are packed above and inside the the pubococcygeus muscle or PC muscle.  Contracting the bulbourethral glands, the prostate and the seminal vesicles will stimulate synthesis of  prostaglandins for pre-ejaculation fluid leakage which likly result in out-of-control or premature ejaculationhomunculus-of-primary-somatosensory-cortex-in-blue

Somatic stretching of the skeletal muscle will generate 3 sensory electric signals to the brain:
1.) somatic sensory electric pulses to thalamus and hypothalamus via the parasympathetic nerves S2-S4 and sympathetic nerves L1-L5 (more than L2-L3);
2.) parasympathetic S2-S4 and sympathetic L1-L5 sensory electric pulses as autonomic nerve stimulation(ANS);
3.) vagus sensory electric pulses as vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) to the brain.

Derm-AutoRefle-Brain4The most important result is:  the cerebral cortex, thalamus and hypothalamus will register the stimulation from sex organs. Therefore. when you are at rest, the central dopamine-hypothalamus-pituitary axis will activate the  ligand-gated and cyclic nucleotide-gated  ion channels to signal the genital organs and the neuroendocrine function and to burst the blood flow into the pelvic organs.

Somatic skeletal muscle stretching and contraction cycles also trigger the muscular endocrine function in addition to providing a bioelectric stimulation  for the brain and nervous system.  Exercises will boost central dopaminergic nervous function. The mechanism behind this is driven by a calmodulin-dependent system. Exercises increase serum calcium levels. When calcium is transported to the brain, it activates the brain dopamine synthesis via a calmodulin-dependent system. Thus, the resulted cntral dopamine elevation regulate various brain functions, including modulation of higher-order motor centers (e.g., basal ganglia), and  the somatic motor nervous control via the dopamine D1-like receptors in the somatic motorenurons.

Conclusion: Qigong stretching your bottom powers up your brain.  Qigong powers the entire brain and nervous system via the direct (smooth muscle )/indirect(skeletal muscle) mechanical stimulation, nervous cross-talk, and generation of biomass bioelectricity.  The location of the muscle groups to be stimulated plays the key role in maximizing the parasympathetic and vagal nervous energy. Here we select the muscle group of Kundalini Root Chakra and Acupuncture points huì yīn會陰 and cháng qiáng 長強.

Special Reference for  the Somato-vagal, Somato-parasympathetic, and Samto-sympathetic Nervous Cross-talk: the stimulation of the pelvic muscles simultaneously activate somato-parasympathetic, somato-vagal and somato-sympathetic reflex arcs (nervous cross-talk in the inter-neurons).
