Besides the well-known lymphatic system, nervous system, etc, our body is also built by energy system of meridians. These meridians are channels, but unlike the blood vessels, these channels transport energy through your body.
Today we will present you the Chinese biological clock that will show you the intervals in which energy circulates through the body and the strongest energy levels in an area of the body every two hours. The symptoms are noticeable if there are problems in that particular area.
Every major organ has a meridian, meaning there are 12 meridians: lungs, large intestine, stomach, spleen, heart, small intestine, bladder, heart area, kidney, duodenum, gallbladder and liver meridians. The yin-yang suggests that they are divided in six yin and six yang meridians. The yin meridians belong to the organs which collect, storage and process substances and energy: the liver, lungs, spleen, heart, kidneys and heart area, while the yang meridians include the organs which exchange and excrete substances and energy: the colon, stomach, small intestine, bladder, duodenum and gallbladder.
The Chinese medicine and law of rhythm rules suggests that the meridians work for 24 hours, divided in 12 two hour intervals. Each meridian has its peak when the opposite meridian hits its low.
This is why Chinese doctors always ask their patients what time of the day the symptoms appeared.
You can follow your own biological clock and write down the time when the symptoms appeared. You should also note the time of day when you’re most energetic, and when you wake up at night because that also implies there’s an issue in a certain part of the body.
Time of maximum function
1 – 3 AM – liver (detoxification, muscles and eyes)
3 AM – 5 AM – lungs (skin)
5 AM – 7 AM – colon (assimilation, elimination, skin)
7 AM – 9 AM– stomach (lymph, food digestion)
9 AM – 11 AM – spleen, pancreas (lymph, food digestion)
11 AM – 1 PM – heart (artery blood circulation)
1 PM – 3 PM – small intestine (digestion, assimilation, arteries)
3 PM – 5 PM – bladder (bones, teeth, elimination, cleaning)
5 PM – 7 PM – kidneys (bones, teeth, ears, filtration, elimination)
7 PM – 9 PM – cardiac layer (constriction of blood vessels)
9 PM – 11 PM – duodenum (thermoregulation)
11 PM – 1 AM – gallbladder (digestion, muscles, eyes)
Time of minimal functions or rest
1 AM – 3 AM – small intestine (digestion, assimilation of the arteries)
3 AM -5 AM – bladder (bones, teeth, cleaning elimination)
5 AM – 7 AM – kidney disease (bones, teeth, ears, filtration, elimination)
7 AM – 9 AM – the heart layer (constriction of blood vessels)
9 AM – 11 AM – duodenum (thermoregulation)
11 AM – 1 PM – gallbladder (digestion, muscles, eyes)
1 PM – 3 PM – liver (detoxification, muscles and eyes)
3 PM – 5 PM – lungs (skin)
5 PM – 7 PM – colon (assimilation, elimination, skin)
7 PM – 9 PM – stomach (lymph, food and digestion)
9 PM – 11 PM – spleen, pancreas (lymph, food digestion)
11 PM – 1 AM – heart (artery blood circulation)
The highest energy level of one meridian (organ) is exactly when another on the opposite side has its lowest.
For example, liver’s highest energy levels are between 1 and 3 AM, and at that time the small intestine is at its lowest energy level. When you eat late and go to sleep, the food is not absorbed well in the small intestine, so you must avoid certain activities when the energy of the body involved in the activity is at its lowest.
When ailments appear because of excess energy which burdens the system, they will show symptoms at the exact time to reduce the excess energy.
If a certain organ shows weakness at the time when it should be at its maximum, then you should find a way to increase its functions.
