Have you ever heard of the Chinese biological clock? It shows the intervals in which energy flows through the body. It reaches its highest concentration in a particular body part in every two hours.
If there’s any problem with this particular part of the body, you experience severe and clear symptoms.
Your body is comprised of digestive, nervous, circulation, lymph and other systems. There’s also an energy system of meridians. These are channels (blood vessels) and life energy flows through them. In other words, they affect the normal function of the body and the exchange processes in it.
Experts have recognized 12 main meridians. Each of them is linked to an organ – lungs, large intestine, stomach, spleen, heart, small intestine, bladder, heart area, kidney, duodenum, gallbladder and liver.
The yin-yang theory suggests that meridians are split into 6 couples, meaning there are 6 yin and 6 yang meridians.
Yin meridians are linked to organs that collect, store and process substances and energy – lungs, spleen, heart, kidneys, heart and liver.
Yang meridians are linked to organs engaged in exchange and excretion of substances and energy – colon, stomach, small intestine, bladder, duodenum and gallbladder.
As explained by the rules of Chinese medicine and the law of rhythm, each meridian is linked to a particular organ and body function, working at full strength at a cycle of 24 hours.
A doctor of Chinese medicine would ask patients at what time of the day do their symptoms occur. This helps professionals to determine the root of the problem and the spot where energy flows with difficulties. They’re also able to tell if there are spots with too much energy, and that’s in no way good for you.
Follow your biological clock, and write down the exact times when your symptoms strike, including your fatigue, pain, etc. Also note your energy peaks and your waking times at night. This may also help experts determine your problem.
Time of maximum function
1:00 am – 3:99 am -- liver (detoxification, muscles and eyes)
3:00 am – 5:00 am – lungs (skin)
5:00 am – 7:00 am -- colon (assimilation, elimination, skin)
7:00 am – 9:00 am -- stomach (lymph, food digestion)
9:00 am – 11:00 am -- spleen, pancreas (lymph, food digestion)
11:00 am – 1:00 pm -- heart (artery blood circulation)
1:00 pm – 3:00 pm -- small intestine (digestion, assimilation, arteries)
3:00 pm – 5:00 pm -- bladder (bones, teeth, elimination, cleaning)
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm -- kidneys (bones, teeth, ears, filtration, elimination)
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm -- cardiac layer (constriction of blood vessels)
9:00 pm – 11:00 pm -- duodenum (thermoregulation)
11:00 pm – 1:00 am -- gallbladder (digestion, muscles, eyes)
Time of minimal function/rest
1:00 am – 3:00 am -- small intestine (digestion, assimilation of arteries)
3:00 am – 5:00 am -- bladder (bones, teeth, cleaning, elimination)
5:00 am – 7:99 am -- kidney disease (bones, teeth, ears, filtration, elimination)
7:00 am -- 9:00 am -- heart layer (constriction of blood vessels)
9:00 am – 11:00 am -- duodenum (thermoregulation)
11:00 am – 1:00 pm -- gallbladder (digestion, muscles, eyes)
1:00 pm – 3:00 pm -- liver (detoxification, muscles and eyes)
3:00 pm – 5:00 pm -- lungs (skin)
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm -- colon (assimilation, elimination, skin)
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm -- stomach (lymph, food and digestion)
9:00 pm – 11:00 pm -- spleen, pancreas (lymph, food digestion)
11:00 pm – 1:00 am – heart (artery blood circulation)
When a particular organ reaches its energetic peak, the organ on the opposite side of the biological clock is at its lowest point. There’s a 12-hour difference between these two.
For example, your liver reaches its peak between 1:00 am and 3:00 am, and your small intestine is at its lowest energy spot in this period.
If you eat at night, the food won’t be absorbed in your small intestine in the way it should, meaning you have to avoid doing tasks at times when the energy of your body involved in that task is at its lowest.
During peaks, every function is accelerated. If any disease of excess energy affects the organ, it will be manifested through severe symptoms. This is the right time to do something, and reduce you energy.
On the other hand, if organ at their peak show general weakness, you need to boost the energy.
Opt for natural medicine, and consider trying acupuncture, homeopathy, herbs and other methods.
