A Chinese doctor always asks his patient first about what time of the day the symptoms appeared. Knowing that, he understands where the problem originates, or rather where the energy circulates with issues, or there is too much energy.
Its best to follow the biological clock and write down the time when the symptoms appeared. Also, note the time of day when you’re most energetic, and when you wake up at night – 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)
One meridian (organ) has its highest energy level exactly when another on the opposite side has its lowest.
Take the liver for example: its 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 have to avoid certain activities when the energy of the body involved in the activity is at its lowest.
During the maximum activity all the functions are boosted. In cases of diseases of excess energy which burden a system, they will show symptoms and that is the exact time to reduce the excess energy.
If an organ shows weakness during maximum activity, it should be strengthened. Besides this clock, natural medicine has many other remedies that can help with lack of energy, like acupuncture, homeopathy, etc.
