  • Medical Qi Gong and Emotions
    « on: February 14, 2017, 01:29:37 PM »

    The following excerpt is from Medical Qi Gong and Emotions: Part III by David Twicken. You can read the other two parts of the article here (Part I) and here (Part II). Happy learning! :)

    "The classic Chinese medical text the Su Wen presents seven internal causes of illness. These causes are emotions related to the organs: sadness, grief, pensiveness, fear, fright, anger and joy. When these emotions are not allowed a natural expression or are suppressed, intense, extreme or continue for long periods of time they can cause illness. Treatment is necessary to prevent the condition from becoming more severe by penetrating deeper into the body, organ and channel systems.

    Emotions are qi. When emotions are imbalanced they can alter the way qi flows. Emotions not only influence their own organ's qi flow, they can alter the qi of related organs in their five phases relationships. For instance, if a person suffers from anger, the Liver can overact on Earth and cause the Spleen to suffer from worry, its corresponding emotion. When the Liver overacts on the Spleen, its associated emotion worry can cause qi to be stagnant and not flow upward causing physical and emotional conditions. Understanding emotions and the qi allows for the clinician to use numerous methods to balance qi and the emotion. In addition to the standard diagnostic methods used in modern Chinese medicine, a classic method called ba zi or the eight characters of birth can be used to identify constitutional organ and emotional conditions.

    Chapter 1 and 2 of the Su Wen presents two major cycles of time: seven and eight-year cycles and seasonal cycles. The Su Wen and Ling Shu contain many references to cycles of time. Understanding nature's cycles and their influence on life is a lost method in modern times. The building blocks of the Chinese calendar are the celestial stems and terrestrial branches are presented in Su Wen chapter 66, Energy Almanac. In chapters 66-74 of the Su Wen a unique system of how cycles of time are related to atmospheric influences (climatic pathogenic factors) is presented. Those chapters present a magnificent insight for understanding yearly energy cycles and the pathogens produced by them.

    The atmospheric influences generated each year can trigger constitutional imbalances; they can be an activator of pre-existing conditions. The Five Phases Circuits, chapter 67 of the Su Wen, presents the relationship between stems and branches and atmospheric influences; table 1 presents the relationships.

    Table 1: Stems, Branches & Atmospheric Influences

    (...) Stems and branches can be applied in many ways in the Chinese healing and divination arts. One method is to find the stems and branches of birth. This is called ba Zi or the eight characters of birth. This is the stem and branch of the hour, day, month and year of birth. A ba zi or birth chart contains one's birth or constitutional condition. It is a way to perceive prenatal influences and identify constitutional susceptibilities. I have found medical ba zi to be a very effective diagnostic method.

    Table 2 is a ba zi chart. It is also called the four pillars and it is of a well-known spiritual teacher. The four pillars are comprised of stems and branches (Chinese zodiac animals), which contain five phases. The four pillars can be converted into a five phases diagram, reflecting the five phases birth condition (see diagram 1). The diagram illustrates there is an excess of fire and a deficiency of metal and earth. Because water nourishes wood and there is deficient metal to control wood, we can say there is a predominant amount of wood and fire. The constitutional diagnosis would include excess wood and fire and a treatment plan would include treating both. Additionally, fire would overact on metal creating metal conditions from this interaction.

    Table 2: Four Pillars Chart

    From a five shen perspective, the four pillars diagram shows this person was born to express their heart shen. The person would be involved in spiritual interests. The combination of fire and wood is 63 percent of the chart, their purpose in life is clear, to follow their heart shen. Additionally, with the lack of Earth and metal, which represent the physical world, this person's purpose is to bring their spiritual insight and lifestyle into this world, into this current life. From a medical perspective, this person would need to balance the Earth and metal systems, to build them up and to reduce excess fire. These systems should be checked on an ongoing basis. Qi Gong, meditation, nutrition, herbal medicine and acupuncture plans would be developed to balance the organ systems. (...)"

    emotions affects the energy flow so yes it can cause illness as well. too much of anything isn't good for oneself long term.
