Li Ching-Yuen was born in 1678 a.d in Chyi Jiang Hsien, Szechuan provence, China. later he immigrated to Kai Hsien, Chen's family field (Cheng Jia Charng).
He died in 1928 a.d at the age of 250 years.
When he was 71 years old, he joined the army of provincial Commander-in-chief Yeuh Jong-Chyi. Most of his wives died early, so during the course of his life he married 14 times.
Li was a herbalist, and skilled in Chi Kung and spent much of his life in the mountains. In 1927 general Yang Sen invited Li to his home in Wann Hsien, Szechuan provence, where a picture was taken of him. Li died the following year when he returned home from his trip.
After he died, General Yang investigated Li's background to determine the truth of his story, and later wrote report about him entitled: " A Factual Account of the 250 Year-Old Good-Luck Man" (Er Bae Wuu Shyr Suey Ren Ruey Shyr Jih), which was published by the Chinese and Foreign Literature Storehouse, Taipei, Taiwan.
All of the information available indicates that the story is true. Li Ching-Yuen's legacy to us is the fact that it is possible for a human being to live more than 200 years if he/she knows how. Because of this we deeply believe that, if we study and research, the day will come when everyone will live at least 200 years.

Hi ATSers, this is preface to one of my favourite books on Chi Kung by Dr. Yang Jwing-Ming; an expert practicioner and author in Chinese Martial Arts and Chi Kung.
There are obviously other sources claiming of humans living this old and beyond, for example the character Methuselah (Enoch's son) from the Old Testament; as well as others.
There have also been studies in human longevity, that claim, those residing close to, and oftenly drinking 'Glacial Milk' (the minerally dense liquid of alluvial flow); are predisposed to living long.
In Li Ching-Yuen's case, it shows the merits of Chinese Herbal Medicine and Chi Kung practice.
