Your Body Clock According To Chinese Medicine

In Traditional Chinese Medicine it is believed that each organ has its point of highest energy and lowest energy.

Chinese Medicine practitioners use this clock to help them determine the organ responsible for the disease.

For example, if you find yourself waking up between the hours of 3am-5am each morning, you may have underlying grief or sadness that is bothering you or you may have a condition in the lung area.

If feelings of anger or resentment arise, you may feel them strongest during the time of the Liver which is 1am-3am or perhaps if you experience back pain at the end of your working day, you could have pent-up emotions of fear, or perhaps even kidney issues.

 

The diagram below shows the body clock in more detail:

organclock

This 24-hour cycle is believed to help us know when to exercise, eat, have sex, rest and sleep.  It also acts as a way to communicate with a particular organ or meridian (energy channel) of the body. 

 

5am-7am is the time of the Large Intestine making it a perfect time to have a bowel movement and remove toxins from the day before.  It is also the ideal time to wash your body and comb your hair.  It is believed that combing your hair helps to clear out energy from the mind.  At this time, emotions of defensiveness or feelings of being stuck could be evoked.

7am-9am is the time of the Stomach so it is important to eat the biggest meal of the day here to optimize digestion and absorption.  Warm meals that are high in nutrition are best in the morning.  Emotions that are likely to be stirred at this time include disgust or despair.

9am-11am is the time of the Pancreas and Spleen, where enzymes are released to help digest food and release energy for the day ahead.  This is the ideal time to exercise and work.  Do your most taxing tasks of the day at this time.  Emotions such as low self-esteem may be felt at this time.

11am-1pm is the time of the Heart which will work to pump nutrients around the body to help provide you with energy and nutrition.  This is also a good time to eat lunch and it is recommended to have a light, cooked meal.  Having a one hour nap or a cup of tea is also recommended during this time.  Feelings of extreme joy or sadness can also be experienced at this time.

1pm-3pm is the time of the Small Intestine and is when food eaten earlier will complete its digestion and assimilation.  This is also a good time to go about daily tasks or exercise.  Sometimes, vulnerable thoughts or feelings of abandonment my subconsciously arise at this time.

3pm-5pm is the time of the Bladder when metabolic wastes move into the kidney’s filtration system.  This is the perfect time to study or complete brain-challenging work.  Another cup of tea is advised as is drinking a lot of water to help aid detoxification processes.  Feeling irritated or timid may also occur at this time.

5pm-7pm is the time of the Kidneys when the blood is filtered and the kidneys work to maintain proper chemical balance.  This is the perfect time to have dinner and to activate your circulation either by walking, having a massage or stretching.  Subconscious thoughts of fear or terror can also be active at this time.

7pm-9pm is the time of Circulation when nutrients are carried to the capillaries and to each cell.  This is the perfect time to read.  Avoid doing mental activities at this time.  A difficulty in expressing emotions may also be felt however, this is the perfect time to have sex or conceive.

9pm-11pm is the time of Triple Heater or Endocrine System where the body’s homeostasis is adjusted and enzymes are replenished.  It is recommended to sleep at this time so the body can conserve energy for the following day.  Feelings of paranoia or confusion may also be felt.

11pm-1am is the time of the Gall Bladder and in order to wake feeling energized the body should be at rest.  In Chinese medicine, this period of time is when yin energy fades and yang energy begins to grow.  Yang energy helps you to keep active during the day and is stored when you are asleep.  Subconscious feelings of resentment may appear during this time.

1am-3am is the time of the Liver and a time when the body should be asleep.  During this time, toxins are released from the body and fresh new blood is made.  If you find yourself waking during this time, you could have too much yang energy or problems with your liver or detoxification pathways.  This is also the time of anger, frustration, and rage.

3am-5am the time of the Lungs and again, this is the time where the body should be asleep.  If woken at this time, nerve soothing exercises are recommended such as breathing exercises.  The body should be kept warm at this time too to help the lungs replenish the body with oxygen.  The lungs are also associated with feelings of grief and sadness.

Acid Reflux or GERD Natural Remedies

Your stomach acid helps digest your food. This stomach acid is very strong – the same acidity as battery acid. While the stomach can handle this, the more sensitive esophagus cannot. When the stomach sphincter is too weak, stomach acid regurgitates up into the esophagus, and causes a burning sensation called Heartburn. While occasional heartburn is common, more frequent, ongoing heartburn may be Acid Reflux, or GERD. Symptoms of acid reflux include burning chest pain, sour taste in the mouth, difficulty swallowing, belching, hoarseness, and sometimes breathing difficulties. Acid Reflux symptoms are worse from lying down or bending over.

Acid Reflux may be caused by a poor diet with too much citrus, certain spices, and fatty or irritating foods. Check with your doctor as some medications promote acid reflux. Smoking, alcohol, coffee, and other foods will make Acid Reflux symptoms worse.

Doctor’s treatment for acid reflux usually entails antacids and proton pump inhibitors that stop or slow down stomach acid, which may cause nutritional deficiencies and contribute to osteoporosis and immune dysfunction. They especially reduce B vitamins, iron and calcium.

The goal from a natural perspective to help Acid Reflux is to first relieve symptoms with natural remedies, and then correct the dietary imbalances. Start with a diet of fresh fruits and vegetables and mild meats such as chicken, turkey and fish, then add cell salts, homeopathy, and herbs to correct the underlying causes of acid reflux. Additionally, it is important to address stressful conditions in a person’s life.
