The doctor is studying his patient’s behavior through the Chinese medicine. If he finds that he has a tangled voice, it is clear to the doctor that the patient’s lung energy is low. His red eyes point to the liver’s flame, and the yellow on his face shows a lack of blood and spleen energy. If a woman can not stay in another condition, the left and right kidney energy are estimated.
Energy is called chi and depends on blood, and Chinese medicine doctors say that the blood is the mother of energy and the energy of the boss.
Kidneys are one of the most important organs in Chinese medicine, as they represent the basis of jin and yang and are one of the important energy centers of our body. They are related to the bone-joint system, hearing, and fears. By treating kidneys, you influence all of these systems.
The liver is blood-related, it stores blood and is mostly treated for menstrual cycle disorders in women – explains Anna Colletti, a Chinese traditional medicine practitioner. The liver is living in the liver, and it sometimes manifests itself in the shape of a snout, headache, dizziness. One of the most important functions of the liver is to provide uninterrupted energy flow through our body, but also the flow of thoughts. If the liver is in harmony, there should be no stress or pressure.
People with a healthy liver are calm, very easy to make decisions and are good leaders. If the liver is in a state of stagnation, obstruction or fire (one of the Chinese medicine syndromes), the flow of energy through the liver, but also through the body, is manifested, which manifests itself as a series of physical and emotional problems – says dr. Anna Coletti.
Our interlocutor says that some of the first signs of liver disharmony are related to anger, anger, perseverance, anger, stubbornness, violence … If these emotions are not expressed, with the possibility of change, then they can lead to depression or frequent mood swings. There are also a number of physical symptoms that point to liver disharmony. The most common symptoms of this syndrome are menstrual problems, fatigue, tensions, the stiffness of the body, pain underneath the ribs, allergies.
Man is a microcosm
Over the course of many centuries of use, traditional Chinese medicine has developed into a unique and integral medical system. Because of its high effectiveness and the potential for disease prevention, it shares the Western medicine position in the Chinese healthcare system equally but is widely used everywhere in the world with great success.
Chinese medicine is a compound of the common application of numerous techniques and theoretical settings rooted in ancient Chinese philosophy – Taoism. The essence of this teaching is the harmony of man with nature.
-There is a saying that man is like a microcosm within the framework of the macrocosm and that the processes that take place in our body are influenced by the same forces that rule the universe. That is why it is very important for a man to reconcile his way of life, nutrition, and behavior with nature, with annuals – says Dr. Anna Colleti.
Five elements equilibrium
Two basic concepts of traditional Chinese medicine are holistic, comprehensive approach to the patient, and determination of treatment based on the differentiation of the symptoms. The Chinese medical practitioner will ask the patient about his constitution, lifestyle and physical symptoms.
– One of the most important rules of Chinese medicine is – to heal the cause and not just the consequences of the illness. That is why sometimes, this way of treatment requires time, but also a complete change in our earlier lifestyle – says our interlocutor.
The basic theories on which Chinese medicine is based are a theory of jin and yang, chin and blood, five element theory, meridian system and collateral.
The basic units that it includes are acupuncture and moxibustion, Chinese phytotherapy, rabbit (Chinese massage), dietetics (the principles of nutrition) and chi gong, ancient Chinese skill where movement and breathing balance achieves a balance between mind and body.
Let’s say, the “Five Elements” theory is a Chinese medicine school that is mostly practiced in America. The doctors of this school set up a diagnosis by determining in which relationship the basic elements, soil, fire, water, air, and metal are found in the patient’s body. They feel that health is restored once the balance of these elements is restored.
