There are intervals which can show the period when the body is circulating the most energy throughout the body. These intervals are every two hours. You can use the Chinese clock to determine if there are problems in specific area in the body.

The body consists of meridians like the lymphatic system, nervous system and others. These meridians channel the blood with the help of the energy. If the energy starts to flow instead of the blood the body sustains changes.

There are 12 meridians connected to all the major organs. They are the lungs, large intestine, stomach, spleen, heart, small intestine, bladder, heart area, kidney, duodenum, gallbladder and liver meridians. The Chinese believe the meridians are divided in six yin and six yang meridians. The yin are the organs that collect, store and process substances and energy like the liver, lungs, spleen, heart, kidney and heart area.

The other yang meridians include organs that exchange and excrete substances and energy like the colon, stomach, small intestine, bladder, duodenum and gallbladder.

The meridians work for 24 hours and they are divided in 12 hour intervals times two. When one meridian is high the other meridian is low.

Chinese doctors practice the clock by asking the patients at what time of the day the symptoms appeared. This can help him discover where the problem originates.

You need to follow your biological clock and write down the time when the symptoms appeared. You need to write down what time of the day you feel the most energized and if you wake up during the night. All of these notes might help you discover what problems in the body may occur.

Here is the time of maximum function:

  • 1-3 AM – liver ( detoxification, muscles and eyes)
  • 3-5 AM- lungs ( skin)
  • 5-7 AM – colon ( assimilation, elimination, skin)
  • 7-9 AM – stomach ( lymph, food digestion)
  • 9-11 AM – spleen, pancreas ( lymph, food digestion)
  • 11 Am – 1 PM – heart ( artery blood circulation)
  • 1- 3 PM – small intestine ( digestion, assimilation, arteries)
  • 3-5 PM – bladder ( bones, teeth, elimination, cleaning)
  • 5-7 PM – kidneys ( bones, teeth, ears, filtration, elimination)
  • 7-9 PM – cardiac layer ( constriction of blood vessels)
  • 9- 11 PM duodenum ( thermoregulation)
  • 11 Pm – 1 AM – gallbladder ( digestion, muscles, eyes)

The time of minimal function or rest:

  • 1- 3 AM – small intestine ( digestion, assimilation of arteries)
  • 3- 5 AM – bladder ( bones, teeth, cleaning elimination)
  • 5-7 AM– kidney disease ( bones, teeth, ears, filtration, elimination)
  • 7- 9 AM – heart layer ( constriction of blood vessels)
  • 9- 11 AM- duodenum ( thermoregulation)
  • 11 Am- 1 PM – gallbladder ( digestion, muscles, eyes)
  • 1- 3 PM – liver ( detoxification, muscles and eyes)
  • 3-5 PM – lungs ( skin)
  • 5- 7 PM – colon ( assimilation, elimination, skin)
  • 7- 9 PM – stomach ( lymph, food and digestion)
  • 9- 11 PM – spleen, pancreas ( lymph, food digestion)
  • 11 PM – 1 AM – heart ( artery blood circulation)

If one meridian has the highest energy, at the same time the opposite meridian has the lowest energy.

The highest energy level of the liver is between 1 and 3 Am and at the same time the small intestine is at the lowest energy level. With this clock you need to avoid certain activities or consuming food when the energy of the body of that specific organ is at its lowest point.

When the organs are at the maximum activity you can do activities that will not burden the system and can help reduce the excess energy.

When the organ is supposed to be working at its best maximum energy, and it is not performing well, this means that that specific organ has some difficulties. You can also use other home remedies for specific problem like acupuncture, homeopathy and many more.
