The Clock Begins: Lung Time 3 AM - 5 AM

The Clock Begins: Lung Time 3 AM - 5 AM

In my prior article titled, Is Your Hose Kinked?” I referenced the 24-hour body clock. If you missed this article click on the link provided. You really do have an internal clock that carries out specific tasks within the body at the same time every day. Almost like your body’s “in-box” of daily routines. And, like your day at the office, your body may have an emergency or two that gets thrown in your day. Something you didn’t plan. This could look like a food you are allergic to such as wheat. Your body still needs to work on its regularly scheduled daily task but eating the wrong foods or food you have an intolerance to may cause your body to have to go deal with that “emergency” instead of completing the scheduled task. This is how blockages, build-ups and stagnation can cause an organ’s meridian pathway to be clogged. This can lead to a host of issues.

This month we will start with an exercise for the lungs. The lungs start your body’s internal clock activities each day from 3 AM to 5 AM.  The lungs have a number of key functions, but there may be some you are not familiar with such as:

  • help to circulate the blood
  • distribute fluids and blood to
  • nourish the skin, generate grief
  • help you release the past
  • give you the ability to speak with a clear voice.

Now, these may not sound like functions you have heard of before and that is because they do not come from western medicine philosophy. We are looking at them from an energy perspective.

If you are someone that wakes up at night during 3 a.m. to 5 a.m., your lungs may be telling you something. Some of the signs of lung patterns that may reflect irregularities in lung energy or stress are:

shortness of breath, sweat easily, tiredness, cough, tickle in the throat, weak voice, dry mouth, dry skin, aversion to cold, someone who worries, is anxious, overworks to keep busy or can’t lie down, asthma, someone that has excessive consumption for greasy or spicy foods.

As mentioned previously, there are a number of ways to address an imbalance in the lungs one of which is an exercise called Qi Gong, similar to exercises like Yoga or Tai Chi. Click on the link for an exercise unique to the lungs. It may take a few days or even a couple of weeks before you notice a change, but give it a try and see if you start sleeping through lung time or are at least able to fall back asleep if you do wake up briefly. Click here for the Lung Exercise.

So maybe you are thinking, “I wake up multiple times during the night, what am I supposed to do if it is not during 3 am – 5 am?” Don’t worry. We are going to do a series on this so rest assured we are going to cover the other organs in the body. However, if you are waking up multiple times a night, you will benefit tremendously from my prior video release called the Tahiti Vacation Relaxation Technique.

Another way to address energy imbalances is through BodyTalk, a modality I use in my practice. A BodyTalk session can be done in person or remotely (over the phone or live video conference such as Zoom). Learn more about BodyTalk and schedule a session.

The Clock Ends…Finally: Liver 1 AM – 3 AM

Liver 1 AM – 3 AM

bioenergyHow many of you wake up in the middle of the night? Come on, be honest. You think it's because you need to use the restroom and once you are awake, your body does tell you that the restroom is in order. Notice the time you are waking at night and if it falls between 1 AM and 3 AM your liver is letting you know that it is not balanced.

Not convinced? How about these traits? Do you hold tension in your stomach or have gurgles? Experience nose bleeds? Do you have throbbing headaches or dizziness? Do you crave alcohol or fried foods? Do you experience anger? Do you over work? These are just a few signs of a liver crying for attention.

Recall we have been talking about the body’s meridian system from a Chinese Medicine perspective. For the last 12 months, we have covered a different organ and this month we end the body clock with its final stop, the liver. In case you missed it, you can read it from the beginning in my prior article titled, “Is Your Hose Kinked?” Be sure to review the archives for the last couple of months to read the articles that support the rest of the body clock. We have covered the lungs, the large intestines, the stomach, the spleen/pancreas, the heart, the small intestines, the bladder, the kidneys, the pericardium, triple heater, and the gall bladder. If you missed any of these, please click on the link above to start the series and to view a list of all subsequent articles.*

Each organ/gland has its very own unique set of tasks that it performs daily at a very specific time of day similar to your daily tasks or “in-box” at work. And, just like your life, your organs have to deal with an occasional “emergency” in their day. When your body has a stressor it can impact any number of ways and in the instance of the liver you may you find you are unable to sleep.

The liver holds the final position, number twelve, in the body clock. The clock starts each day at 3 AM with the lungs, and passes the baton every two hours to a different organ throughout the 24 hour clock. This month our focus will be on the liver which begins its daily routine at 1 AM and continues until 3 AM.

The liver has a number of functions including:
• Managing blood volume and menstruation
• Determines tone of muscles
• Produces healthy nails
• Regulates eye health and vision
• Synthesizes life and coordinates the body’s work for each day

Often the following symptoms may accompany a liver that is not balanced:
• Depression or moodiness
• Spots in visual field
• Uterine fibroids, abdominal masses or lumps
• Red eyes or face
• Irritable bowel; flatulence
• Bitter taste
• Fever
• Spasms of neck and shoulders

There are a number of ways to address an imbalance in the liver such as exercises like Qi Gong, Yoga, or Tai Chi.

The liver ends our body clock journey. If you wake up multiple times a night and not just during liver time, suspect adrenal stress in which case you could benefit greatly from my prior video release called the Tahiti Vacation Relaxation Technique.

Gallbladder 11 PM – 1 AM

Chinese clock bio energyAre you a hypochondriac? Do you suffer from blurred vision? Often experience a lack of courage? Have weak ankles? Craving greasy foods? Your gallbladder may be trying to tell you it is stressed or not balanced.

Recall we have been talking about the body’s meridian system from a Chinese Medicine perspective. Each month we have covered a different organ so in case you missed it, you can read it from the beginning in my prior article titled, “Is Your Hose Kinked?” Be sure to review the archives for the last couple of months to read the articles that support the rest of the body clock. So far we have covered the lungs, the large intestines, the stomach, the spleen/pancreas, the heart, the small intestines, the bladder, the kidneys, the pericardium, and triple heater. If you missed any of these, please click on the link above to start the series and to view a list of all subsequent articles.

Each organ/gland has its very own unique set of tasks that it performs daily at a very specific time of day similar to your daily tasks or “in-box” at work. And, just like your life, your organs have to deal with an occasional “emergency” in their day. When your body has a stressor it can impact any number of ways and in the instance of the gallbladder you may find your energy low at this time of day or you may be unable to fall asleep.

The gallbladder holds position number eleven on the body clock. There are twelve in total. The clock starts each day at 3 AM with the lungs and passes the baton every two hours to a different organ throughout the 24-hour clock. This month our focus will be on the gallbladder which begins its daily routine at 11 PM and continues until 1 AM.

The gallbladder has a number of functions including:
• Storing and releasing bile to aid in digestion
• Provide courage to take new steps
• Confidence in decisions
• Governs flexibility and strength of tendons
• Keeps emotions moving such as anger

Often the following symptoms may accompany a gallbladder that is not balanced:
• Sluggish digestion
• Dizziness
• Timidity
• Sighing
• Lack of initiative, depression
• Bitter taste
• Pain or a headache on the side of the head
• Pain on flanks of hips, sciatica

There are a number of ways to address an imbalance in the gallbladder such as exercises like Yoga, or Tai Chi.

We finalize the series next month with the liver which completes the cycle of the 24-hour body clock. However, if you have low energy during this time or other times of the day, it could also be a food intolerance or adrenal stress. Pinpointing if this happens after you eat is a good indication of a food intolerance. If not, suspect adrenal stress in which case you could benefit greatly from my prior video release called the Tahiti Vacation Relaxation Technique.

Triple Heater Time 9 PM – 11 PM

Chinese clock bio energyDo you have an inability to let go of negative thoughts? Do you often have suspicion or break relationships? Ever find you have deafness or earaches? Your Triple Heater may be trying to tell you it is stressed or not balanced.

Did you even know you had a Triple Heater? Remember we have been talking about the body’s meridian system from a Chinese Medicine perspective. Each month we have covered a different organ so in case you missed it, you can read it from the beginning in my prior article titled, “Is Your Hose Kinked?” Be sure to review the archives for the last couple of months to read the articles that support the rest of the body clock. So far we have covered the lungs, the large intestines, the stomach, the spleen/pancreas, the heart, the small intestines, the bladder, the kidneys and the pericardium.*

The Triple Heater does not really have form like your liver or kidney which is something substantial you can touch. Your local surgeon won’t be operating on this but don’t underestimate that it serves a function.

Its closest equivalent in Western medicine would be the many glands of the endocrine system such as the thyroid, pituitary, hypothalamus etc. It's called Triple Heater because it is divided into three equal parts; upper, middle and lower spanning the torso of the body.

Each organ/gland has its very own unique set of tasks that it performs daily at a very specific time of day similar to your daily tasks or “in-box” at work. And, just like your life, your organs have to deal with an occasional “emergency” in their day. When your body has a stressor it can impact any number of ways and in the instance of the Triple Heater you may find your energy low at this time of day or you may be unable to fall asleep.

Triple Heater holds position number ten in the body clock. The clock starts each day at 3 AM with the lungs and passes the baton every two hours to a different organ throughout the 24-hour clock. This month our focus will be on the Triple Heater which begins its daily routine at 9 PM and continues until 11 PM.

The Triple Heater has a number of functions including:
• Keeps fluids moving in the body
• Facilitates digestion
• Benefits the eyes and ears
• Stops convulsions
• Dispels masses and stagnation

Often the following symptoms may accompany a Triple Heater that is not balanced:
• Lack of resistance to infections
• Poor circulation, overheating or chilliness
• Fluid and toxin retention
• Earaches
• Depression, mood swings
• Stiffness of shoulders
• Swelling of lymph nodes

There are a number of ways to address an imbalance in the Triple Heater such as exercises like Yoga, Tai Chi or Qi Gong.

We are continuing this series next month until we have covered all the organs in the 24 hour body clock. However, if you have low energy during this time or other times of the day, it could also be a food intolerance or adrenal stress. Pinpointing if this happens after you eat is a good indication of a food intolerance.

Chinese clock bio energyDo you have a stiff neck often? Hiccups and belching leave you speechless? Suffer from irregular sleep or insomnia? Do you experience excessive emotions such as hate, lack of forgiveness, shock or hurt? If so, you may want to understand what your pericardium may be telling you.

What’s a pericardium, you ask? It’s a fluid-filled sac that surrounds the heart and prevents it from over expanding if too much blood volume is present. But in Chinese Medicine, the function of the pericardium may appear very different. It has a great role in protecting the heart emotionally as well.

For the last several months, we have been learning about our 24-hour body clock. Each month we have covered a different organ so in case you missed it, you can read it from the beginning in my prior article titled, “Is Your Hose Kinked?” Be sure to review the archives for the last couple of months to read the articles that support the rest of the body clock.

And, just like your life, your organs have to deal with an occasional “emergency” in their day. When your body has a stressor it can impact any number of ways and in the instance of the pericardium, you may find you feel depressed or uneasy during this time of day.

The pericardium holds position number nine in the body clock. The clock starts each day at 3 AM with the lungs and passes the baton every two hours to a different organ throughout the 24-hour clock. This month, our focus will be on the pericardium which begins its daily routine at 7 PM and continues until 9 PM.

The pericardium has a number of functions including:
• Protector of emotions from emotional trauma
• Guides relationship with self and others
• Cools and moves the blood
• Pacifies the stomach
• Helps express the joy of the heart

Often the following symptoms may accompany a pericardium that is not balanced:
• Arrhythmias
• Pain and distention of breast tissue
• Uterine fibroids
• Manic behavior, depression
• Phobias, aversions
• Sexual perversion
• Hiccups and belching

There are a number of ways to address an imbalance in the pericardium such as exercises like Yoga, or Tai Chi.

Chinese clock bio energyDo you experience long-standing worry and anxiety? Do you have an excess craving for sex? Do you experience dizziness or weak legs? Are you a low back pain sufferer? If so, you may want to understand how your kidneys may be trying to tell you something.

For the last several months, we have been learning about our 24-hour body clock. Each month we have covered a different organ so in case you missed it, you can read it from the beginning in my prior article titled, “Is Your Hose Kinked?” Be sure to review the archives for the last couple of months to read the articles that support the rest of the body clock.

And, just like your life, your organs have to deal with an occasional “emergency” in their day. When your body has a stressor it can impact any number of ways and in the instance of the kidneys, you may find you get sleepy or irritable during this time of day.

The kidneys hold position number eight in the body clock. The clock starts each day at 3 AM with the lungs and passes the baton every two hours to a different organ throughout the 24-hour clock. This month, our focus will be on the kidneys which begin their daily routine at 5 PM and continue until 7 PM.

The kidneys have a number of functions including:

• Producing marrow
• Generates fear to keep us aware of danger
• Nourishes the ears to allow hearing
• Nourishes hair to keep it from turning gray
• Regulates health of sexual organs, uterus
• Governs your will or constitution to live

Often the following symptoms may accompany a kidney that is not balanced:

• Frequent urination
• Cold knees and feet
• Shallow and rapid breathing, difficulty inhaling
• Excess craving for sex, nocturnal emissions (with dreams)
• Dry cough that is worse late in the day
• Dry mouth
• Apathy, avoids speaking, restlessness

There are a number of ways to address an imbalance in the kidneys such as exercises like Yoga, Tai Chi or Qi Gong exercises.

Chinese clock bio energyAre you suspicious or jealous? Do you have painful or difficult urination? Do your moods change often? Could your confidence be stronger? If so, you may want to understand how your bladder may be trying to tell you something.

For the last several months, we have been learning about our 24-hour body clock. Each month we have covered a different organ so in case you missed it, you can read it from the beginning in my prior article titled, Is Your Hose Kinked? Be sure to review the archives for the last couple of months to read the articles that support the rest of the body clock.

Each organ has its very own unique set of tasks that it performs daily at a very specific time of day similar to your daily tasks or “in-box” at work. And, just like your life, your organs have to deal with an occasional “emergency” in their day. When your body has a stressor it can impact any number of ways and in the instance of the bladder, you may find you get sleepy or irritable during this time of day.

The bladder has a number of functions including:

  • Stores urine for release

The Clock Continues: Heart Time 11 AM – 1 PM

Do you have a fear of aging? Do you mutter to yourself? Do you get mouth and tongue ulcers often or have a bitter taste in your mouth? If so, read on to learn more about how your heart plays a role in this.

For the last several months, we have been learning about our 24 hour body clock. Each month we have covered a different organ so in case you missed it, you can read it from the beginning in my prior article titled, Is Your Hose Kinked? Be sure to review the archives for the last couple of months to read the articles that support the rest of the body clock. So far we have covered the lungs, the large intestines, the stomach and the spleen/pancreas.

Each organ has its very own unique set of tasks that it performs daily at a very specific time of day similar to your daily tasks or “in-box” at work. And, just like your life, your organs have to deal with an occasional “emergency” in their day. Something you didn’t plan. This emergency could simply be a food you are allergic to such as dairy which often has a bad effect on the heart in the world of Chinese Medicine. Your body still needs to work on its regularly scheduled daily task, but eating the wrong foods or food you have an intolerance to may cause your body to have to go deal with that “emergency” instead of completing the scheduled task. This is how blockages, build-ups and stagnation can cause an organ’s meridian pathway to be clogged. This can lead to a host of issues.

The heart holds position number 5 in the body clock which means that the clock starts each day at 3 AM with the lungs, then passes the baton every two hours to a different organ throughout the 24 hour clock. This month, our focus will be on the heart which begins it daily routine at 11 AM and continues until 1 PM.

The heart network includes the heart, the heart meridian which runs through both lungs, over to the armpits and down the inside of the arms to the pinky finger. It also heavily influences the blood vessels and the tip of the tongue. This is a rather interesting point since there is a Bible verse that mentions “…But the things that come out of the mouht come from the heart..." (Matt 15:18 NIV)

The heart has a number of functions including:

  • Turning food energy (Qi) into blood and controlling food supply, vessels and pulse
  • Influencing complexion by controlling the blood supply to the face
  • Balances emotions because healthy blood lets the mind/spirit rest
  • Sends blood to the tongue and allows for appropriate laughter/speech

Often the following symptoms may accompany a heart that is not balanced:

  • Palpitations, sweating easily, pale, tired, dull complexion
  • Emotional stress especially sadness, fear of aging, anxiety
  • Disturbed dreams, feeling undernourished/nurtured
  • Worry, insomnia, poor memory, fidgets, impulsive
  • Difficulty speaking, incoherent speech, rash behavior, muttering to self
  • Grief, resentment over long bottled up anger, hitting or scolding others.

There are a number of ways to address an imbalance in the heart such as exercises like Yoga, Tai Chi or Qi Gong. The following Qi Gong exercise will help you strengthen the energy flow in this meridian and can help improve the symptoms listed above. Click here: Qi Gong Exercises for the Heart

We are continuing this series next month until we have covered all the organs in the 24 hour body clock. However, if you have low energy during this time or other times of the day, it could be a food intolerance or adrenal stress. Pinpointing if this happens after you eat is a good indication of a food intolerance. If not, suspect adrenal stress in which case you could benefit greatly from my prior video release called the Tahiti Vacation Relaxation Technique.

If you missed this article, click on the link provided and be sure to click on the archives for the last couple of months to read the articles that support the rest of the body clock. So far we have covered the lungs, the large intestines, and the stomach. I have been sharing details about your internal clock and how it carries out specific tasks within the body at the same time every day. Almost like your body’s “in-box” of daily routines. And, like your day at your home or the office, your body may have an emergency or two that gets thrown in. Something you didn’t plan. This emergency could simply be a food you are allergic to such as dairy. Your body still needs to work on its regularly scheduled daily task, but eating the wrong foods or food you have an intolerance to may cause your body to have to go deal with that “emergency” instead of completing the scheduled task. This is how blockages, build-ups and stagnation can cause an organ’s meridian pathway to be clogged. This can lead to a host of issues.

The spleen/pancreas holds position number 4 in the body clock which means that the clock starts each day at 3 AM with the lungs and then passes the baton to the large intestine at 5 AM, then to the stomach at 7 AM and now to the spleen/pancreas at 9 AM to allow it to complete its daily tasks.

From 9 AM – 11 AM, your body is cleansing the spleen/pancreas. The spleen network includes the pancreas, thymus (immune gland), parts of the bone marrow and certain aspects of the brain just to name a few.

The spleen/pancreas has a number of functions including:

• Transports food, lymph thoughts and emotions

• Keeps blood in the vessels to prevent bruising

• Regulates rhythms like menstrual periods and other rhythms

• Gives us the ability to focus on tasks

Often the following symptoms may accompany a spleen/pancreas that is not balanced:

• Tiredness, weakness, dizziness, weak voice, numbness of limbs

• Nightmares, sleep-walking, obsessing about the past

• Fullness in chest, heavy feeling in head, headache

• Worry, low appetite, poor diet

There are a number of ways to address an imbalance in the spleen/pancreas such as exercises like Yoga, Tai Chi or Qi Gong. The following Qi Gong exercise will help you strengthen the energy flow in this meridian and can help improve the symptoms listed above: Qi Gong Exercises for the Spleen

We are continuing this series next month until we have covered all the organs in the 24-hour body clock. However, if you have low energy during this time or other times of the day, it could be a food intolerance or adrenal stress. Pinpointing if this happens after you eat is a good indication of a food intolerance. If not, suspect adrenal stress in which case you could benefit greatly from my prior video release called the Tahiti Vacation Relaxation Technique.

Another way to address energy imbalances is through BodyTalk, a modality I use in my practice. A BodyTalk session can be done in person or remotely (over the phone or live video conference such as Zoom). Learn more about BodyTalk and schedule a session.

The Clock Continues: Stomach Time 7 AM – 9 AM

In my prior article titled, “Is Your Hose Kinked?” I referenced the 24-hour body clock. If you missed this article click on the link provided. I have been sharing details about your internal clock that carries out specific tasks within the body at the same time every day. Almost like your body’s “in-box” of daily routines. And, like your day at your home or the office, your body may have an emergency or two that gets thrown in. Something you didn’t plan. This emergency could simply be a food you are allergic to such as dairy. Your body still needs to work on its regularly scheduled daily task, but eating the wrong foods or food you have an intolerance to may cause your body to have to go deal with that “emergency” instead of completing the scheduled task. This is how blockages, build-ups and stagnation can cause an organ’s meridian pathway to be clogged. This can lead to a host of issues.

The stomach holds position number 3 in the body clock which means that the clock starts each day at 3 AM with the lungs and then passes the baton to the large intestine at 5 AM and then on to the stomach at 7 AM to allow it to complete its daily tasks.

From 7 AM – 9 AM, your body is cleansing the stomach. This is when the organ has the strongest energy for the entire day. It also happens to be the best time of day to eat your largest meal. When that energy is not flowing, you may find that you are not able to wake up easily or you are a slow starter. You may find that you feel you don’t have much of an appetite.

The stomach has a number of functions including:

  • Breaking down food and thoughts
  • Gives strength to the body and limbs
  • Keeps food and emotions moving down
  • Generates worry to allow conscious thought

Often the following symptoms may accompany a stomach that is not balanced:

  • Pain in the eyes, nosebleeds, swelling of the neck, facial paralysis, weak legs
  • Pain in the upper abdomen, diminished taste, loose stool
  • Low appetite, thirsty but can’t drink, irregular eating patterns
  • Anxiety, worry, depression, instability, doubt, suspicions, mania, difficulty assimilating ideas

There are a number of ways to address an imbalance in the stomach such as exercises like Yoga or Tai Chi. Since the stomach helps to generate worry, it is a good idea to manage stressful events while eating. Many families choose to watch television while they eat. If you choose to do that, consider not watching the news or other worrisome programming. Choose comedy or something more soothing.

So maybe you are thinking, “I have low energy multiple times a day, not just during 7 am – 9 am?” Don’t worry. We are continuing this series so rest assured we are going to cover the other organs in the body. However, if you have low energy during other times of the day, it could be a food intolerance or adrenal stress. Pinpointing if this happens after you eat is a good indication of a food intolerance. If not, suspect adrenal stress in which case you could benefit greatly from my prior video release called the Tahiti Vacation Relaxation Technique.
