Energy ,Blood And Body Fluids

 

 Energy

Energy is the motor of all human activities;all human activities are a function of energy.When energy is disordered ,it can cause various types of organ disordes,conversely,organ disordes can cause energy disorders.The disorders of energy are generally divided into two categories;deficiency and excess.Deficiency means shortage, with symptoms of low functioning and decline;excess means too much, with symptoms of congestion and blockage.

 

With an energy deficiency,there is a functional decline of the internal organs and a low resistance of the organism against the attack of disease.It can be seen in chronic disease,aging,or during the recuperating stage of acute disease.The general symptoms of energy deficiency include white or pale complexion ,fatigue,weakness,poor spirits,shortness of breath,too tired to walk,low and feeble voice,excessive perspiration,tongue in light color and weak pulse.In order to treat it,it is necessary to tone up the energy.

 

An excess of energy manifests itself in energy sluggishness or stagnation.Energy should travel throughout the body without difficulty.However ,various factors,including emotional stress, irregular eating,attack of external energies and external injuries,can impact energy circulation negatively and cause energy sluggishness in the chest.They can also cause swelling of the stomach and abdomen with pain if they involve the stomach and intestine,with wandering pain occurring most frequently and swelling more severe than pain.Other symptoms include intestinal rumbling,pain getting better on belching and pain and swelling of breasts in a women.In order to treat it,it is necessary to promote the flow of energy and break up energy congestion.

 

Another type of energy disorder is called energy upsurging,or energy rebellion,which may be seen in cough and asthma due to lungs energy upsurging and in nausea and vomiting as a result stomach energy upsurging.

 

BLOOD

 

Blood is a product of water and grains undergoing energy transformation and it is closely related to the heart ,spleen and kidneys.There are three basic types of blood disorders;blood deficiency,blood coagulation and ‘hot blood’.

 

Blood deficiency means a shortage of blood due to loss of blood or insufficient production of blood.Blood deficiency can be seen in anemia,chronic waste disease,neurosis,parasites and irregular menstruation ,with the following symptoms;pale complexion,light colour of nails ,light colour of tongue and fine pulse(there may be an empty pulse after massive bleeding). In order to treat it,it is necessary to tone up the blood or strengthen the energy and tone up the blood at the same time.

 

Blood coagulation,or blood stasis,can be seen in coronary disease,menstrual pain,suppression of menses,extra-uterine pregnancy,external injuries and carbuncles,with such symptoms as acute pain in the affected  region,mostly prickling pain in a fixed region and pain getting worse on pressure or local swelling with lumps,pain in the lower abdomen before menstruation,scant menstrual flow in purple-black color and in lumps and dark purple color of tongue with ecchymosis on the tongue.In order to treat it,it is necessary to active the blood and transform coagulation.

 

‘Hot Blood’ is mostly seen in ‘hot’ disease of external causes,such as measles,scarlet fever and encephalitis;sometimes it can also be seen in such disease aa allergic purpura,aplastic anemia and leukemia,as well as various disease of bleeding.The following symptoms may be present;red swelling,bleeding,skin eruptions,premature menstruation,excessive menstrual flow in fresh-red color,mental depression,thirst,reddish urine and constipation or fever,red tongue with a yellowish coating and rapid pulse.In order to treat hot blood,it is necessary to cool the blood,clear up heat and counteract toxic effects.

 

BODY FLUIDS

 

Body fluids refer to the water in the body under normal circumstances.The functions of body fluids are to water and lubricate internal organs,muscles,skin ,hair membranes and cavities;lubricate the joints;and moisten and nourish the brain,marrow and bones.

 

Body fluids can be divided into clear fluids and turbid fluids.Clear fluids are spread in the muscles and the membranes to moisten the muscle,skin and hair,as well as the cavities of the senses,namely,the eyes,ears,mouth and nose.Perspiration and urine are products of clear fluids.Turbid fluids are spread in the internal organs to nourish such organs as the brain,marrow and bones and to lubricate the joints,but ,at the same time,they also have the function of nourishing muscles.

 

The production,distribution and excretion of body fluids go through a relatively complicated tine and bladder.The Yellow Emperor’s Classics Of Internal Medicine States;After food enters the stomach,its pure energy is transmitted upward to the spleen;the spleen,in turn,spreads the pure energy to flow upward to the lungs;the lungs reopen and regulate the passage of waterways in order to transmit the energy of water to the bladder below;the pure energy of water then spreads in four directions and travels to irrigate the meridians of the five viscera.”this means that the source of water comes from the stomach,which transmits the pure energy to the spleen;through the transporting and transforming functions of the spleen,the fluids from the stomach are sent too the lungs,which spread the fluids to various internal organs.

 

When foods pass through the small intestine and the large intestine,body fluids will be absorbed through the function of the small intestine in separating the clear fluids fron the turbid and the function of the large intestine in transporting and transforming waste matter.This accounts for the assertions in the classic that”the small intestine takes charge of clear fluids.’.These assertions point to the connection between body fluids and the small and large intestine.

 

In short ,the production ,absorption and transportation of body fluids are inseparable from the receiving function of the stomach and the transporting and transforming function of the spleen.The distribution of body fluids throughout the whole body to moisten the skin and hair and the transforming of body fluids into perspiration and urine are inseparable from the expanding,dispersing,cleaning-up and pushing-downward functions of the lungs,which is why the lungs are considered the upper source of water.

 

Among the internal organs,the kidneys play a very important role in the production and metabolism of body fluids.This is because all the organs involved in body fluids depend on the warming and pushing power of the kidneys,including the stomach(which receives water) the spleen(which transports and transforms water) and the lungs (which spread and clean up water);in addition,the production and excretion of urine and the metabolism of water throughout the whole body are inseparable from the transforming function of the kidneys.This is why it is said that the kidneys are water organs and they take charge of the water throughout the entire body.

 

Insufficient body fluids and failure of water to transform into fluids with water retention are the two basic pathological changes in metabolism of body fluids.Insufficient sources and excessive loss and consumption are the two basic causes of insufficient body fluids.The first cause may be due to insufficient intake of water and failure of water to transform into body fluids;the second may be due to the attack of a “hot”pathogen,excessive perspiration,vomiting and diarrhea.
