On October 14, 2018, Beijing Chongwenmen Church held a health counseling session for elderly Christians ahead of the Double Ninth Festival that falls on today to honor seniors, according to the church.
Doctor Li Guirong explained the diseases and treatment programs to the participants. She also provided instructions based on individuals' conditions and gave prescriptions of Chinese patent medicine.
There was also a Q&A part presided over by a senior otolaryngology doctor. She also measured the blood pressure for over 80 people. A solution to solve sub-health problems and dietary therapy were given by a teacher and a sister respectively.
More than 140 people joined in the activity.
The traditional Chinese festival, also called Chongyang Festival or Senior's Day, falls on the ninth day of the ninth lunar month. In Chinese culture, "nine" equals the number of yang, making the day of the festival one of two yang numbers, while "chong" in Chinese refers to double. So that's how the name of the festival, Chongyang, came to be.
