A doctor who studied Chinese medicine will first ask the patient what time of the day appear these disorders in the body. By this the doctor will know which of your organs is not working properly.
This Chinese biological clock shows the intervals at which energy circulates through different parts of our body, and every two hours a day is the strongest in particular areas. Then the function of that part of the body is the best and if there is any problem, the symptoms will be most pronounced during this period.
It is good for you to monitor your biological clock and to write down the time of day at which symptoms such as fatigue and pain appear. Also, you should write down the time when you have maximum energy and the time of night when you usually wake. This may also indicate a problem with a particular body part.
The time of maximum function (12 hours afterwards the function is the lowest):
- 5 AM to 7 AM- the colon
- 7 AM to 9 AM – the stomach
- 11 AM to 1 PM – the heart
- 1 PM to 3 PM – the small intestine
- 3 PM to 5 PM – the bladder
- 5 PM to 7 PM – the kidneys
- 7 PM to 9 PM – the heart shell
- 9 PM to 11 PM – the triple heater (thermoregulation)
- 11 PM to 1 AM – the gallbladder
- 1 AM to 3 AM–the liver
- 3 AM to 5 AM – the lungs
When an organ is at its height power, the one on the opposite side of the biological clock (12 hours apart) is at its lowest energy level. For example, between one and three AM the liver reaches its peak, and the small intestine is at its lowest level of energy. So, if you eat late at night, the food is not absorbed well in the small intestine.
So, you need to avoid some of the activities at a certain time and conduct them when the energy of the body part that is involved in that activity is at the maximum energy level.
