KEY LIME PIE (low glycemic, serves 8)

Question

Why do I often wake up at 2:00 in the morning? Sometimes I can go back to sleep but sometimes I cannot or will stay awake for a long time.

Answer

Two o’clock in Chinese medicine is right in the middle of “Liver time” which goes from 1:00 to 3:00 in the morning. I would say 80% insomnia patterns fit into that pattern.

Organ hourly clock:

  • 11:00 PM - 1:00 AM : Gallbladder time
  • 1:00 Am-3: 00 AM: Liver time
  • 3:00AM-5:00 AM : Lung time
  • 5:00 AM to 7:00 AM : Large Intestine time

Qi, instrument of our health and destiny

 

Qi can wear many hats, from mundane “air” (you put “Qi” in your flat tires), “function” (the “Qi of the Heart” makes it beat) to”activity”, “strength” or “life” as no qi means death. It also includes modern concepts of “energy” “electricity,” or “electromagnetism”

The main medical role of Qi in our body is “transformation,” metabolic and enzymatic functions being its modern names. Our Lung, Spleen/ pancreas and liver constitute its main “transformers”.

Shen, radiance of our spirit and flame of our soul

Shen is the most subtle of the three treasures. Often translated as spirit, Shen can also mean soul, mind, character, personality, emotion, charisma, talents or radiance. Shen resides in our Heart and its nature is Fire. Heart health and Shen are therefore closely connected. Interestingly enough Oriental medicine assigns to the Heart many of the functions that we assign to the brain. Concentration for example is a function of our Shen. The separation between mind and heart is of our making!

Jing, source of our longevity and vitality

Oriental medicine lists 3 fundamental treasures essential to human health: Jing, Qi, Shen. “Treasure” means something precious and unique to be cherished and protected, like our. national parks designated “national treasures” to protect them from mindless exploitation. Treasure entails the necessity of conscious care and awareness of irreplaceable value.

Jing is the first of the three treasures, sometimes translated as “kidney essence” but much wider than that. Some other Western terms could include “vital energy,” “DNA,” “constitution,”. “body fluids and lubrication” or “libido.”

What can Acupuncture treat?

Today, in this little blog, let me just tackle the most common question: “what is acupuncture good for?” or another version of it “Can it treat X, Y, Z…?”

In a way, that is like asking “What is medicine good for?” While acupuncture in the West is best known for its pain applications (knee, shoulder, elbow, lower back and all kinds of arthritic pains) its uses cover a much wider scope.

Should you get a flu shot or not

Should you get a flu shot or not

To get a flu shot, or not to get a flu shot . . . this is indeed a loaded question. We live more and more in fear of disease and viruses.

In the end, it is a personal choice, and I do hope that the government or the general state of health lets it be a personal choice.

New Video on Alzheimer's Prevention

The goal of this lecture is to both demystify the process of Alzheimer's and provide practical tools of prevention and intervention. Since science presently holds Alzheimer’s to be irreversible, people dread this disease and feel powerless when facing it. Yet, there is also much research to give us hope. Did you know that Alzheimer's has been termed a “third diabetes” or “diabetes of the brain?” Unlike Alzheimer’s, diabetes is not a mysterious disease and many are those who have reversed it through diet and lifestyle. This is but one piece of the many available to unravel the puzzle of Alzheimer’s

Put together, Chinese medicine and Western knowledge in particular provide a precious combination to get us out of powerlessness and provide both knowledge and very practical applications.
