What does it mean if you wake up at the same time every night and don’t feel good? The Chinese Organ or Body Clock, may be able to tell you what is going on with your body. In fact, the way our body is constructed is to contain an energy system of meridians, other than the known systems such as the lymphatic system, nervous system, etc. Those meridians are channels not unlike blood vessels, but with energy flowing through instead of blood. They affect the body and the substance exchange in it.The Chinese biological clock can show us the intervals in which energy circulates through the body, and the strongest energy levels in an area of the body every two hours. If there are problems in that particular area, the symptoms are noticeable. There are a total of 12 meridians, belonging to every major organ. These are the lungs, large intestine, stomach, spleen, heart, small intestine, bladder, heart area, kidney, duodenum, gallbladder and liver meridians. According to yin-yang, they are divided in six yin and six yang meridians. The yin meridians belong to the organs which collect, storage and process substances and energy: the liver, lungs, spleen, heart, kidney and heart area. The yang meridians include the organs which exchange and excrete substances and energy: the colon, stomach, small intestine, bladder, duodenum and gallbladder. The Chinese medicine and law of rhythm rules say that the meridians work for 24 hours, divided in 12 two hour intervals. Each meridian has its peak when the opposite meridian hits its low. A Chinese doctor always asks his patient first about what time of the day the symptoms appeared. Knowing that, he understands where the problem originates, or rather where the energy circulates with issues, or there is too much energy. Its best to follow the biological clock and write down the time when the symptoms appeared. Also, note the time of day when you’re most energetic, and when you wake up at night – that also implies there’s an issue in a certain part of the body.
Time Of Maximum Function
1 – 3 AM – liver (detoxification, muscles and eyes)
3 AM – 5 AM – lungs (skin)
5 AM – 7 AM – colon (assimilation, elimination, skin)
7 AM – 9 AM- stomach (lymph, food digestion)
9 AM – 11 AM – spleen, pancreas (lymph, food digestion)
11 AM – 1 PM – heart (artery blood circulation)
1 PM – 3 PM – small intestine (digestion, assimilation, arteries)
3 PM – 5 PM – bladder (bones, teeth, elimination, cleaning)
5 PM – 7 PM – kidneys (bones, teeth, ears, filtration, elimination)
7 PM – 9 PM – cardiac layer (constriction of blood vessels)
9 PM – 11 PM – duodenum (thermoregulation)
11 PM – 1 AM – gallbladder (digestion, muscles, eyes) Time Of Minimal Functions Or Rest
1 AM – 3 AM – small intestine (digestion, assimilation of the arteries)
3 AM -5 AM – bladder (bones, teeth, cleaning elimination)
5 AM – 7 AM – kidney disease (bones, teeth, ears, filtration, elimination)
7 AM – 9 AM – the heart layer (constriction of blood vessels)
9 AM – 11 AM – duodenum (thermoregulation)
11 AM – 1 PM – gallbladder (digestion, muscles, eyes)
11 PM – 3 PM – liver (detoxification, muscles and eyes)
3 PM – 5 PM – lungs (skin)
5 PM – 7 PM – colon (assimilation, elimination, skin)
7 PM – 9 PM – stomach (lymph, food and digestion)
9 PM – 11 PM – spleen, pancreas (lymph, food digestion)
11 PM – 1 AM – heart (artery blood circulation).
One meridian (organ) has its highest energy level exactly when another on the opposite side has its lowest. Take the liver for example: its highest energy levels are between 1 and 3 AM, and at that time the small intestine is at its lowest energy level. When you eat late and go to sleep, the food is not absorbed well in the small intestine, so you have to avoid certain activities when the energy of the body involved in the activity is at its lowest. During the maximum activity all the functions are boosted. In cases of diseases of excess energy which burden a system, they will show symptoms and that is the exact time to reduce the excess energy. If an organ shows weakness during maximum activity, it should be strengthened. Besides this clock, natural medicine has many other remedies that can help with lack of energy, like acupuncture, homeopathy, etc..
Garlic is one of the healthiest foods on the planet. Many people around the world use it to make all kinds of dishes and salads, but – you should know that the best way to consume garlic is to eat it raw. So, regular consumption of garlic will significantly reduce the blood pressure levels, prevent cardiovascular and heart diseases. It will also improve the function of your bladder and it will help you cleanse and improve the function of the liver. Well, eating raw garlic on empty stomach can also treat many stomach problems, including diarrhea. A recent study has confirmed that garlic can also help you with some nerve problems, but only if it’s consumed on empty stomach.We can easily say that garlic is one of the most effective and most powerful natural agents used in the alternative medicine. Garlic has the ability to cleanse the entire body from the harmful parasites, worms, prevent diabetes, depression, typhus, and even cancer. And many medical experts have confirmed these findings.
Some people are allergic to garlic and they shouldn’t eat it raw. They will experience symptoms such as high body temperature or headache. If you are experiencing these types of symptoms after you eat raw garlic, they you should stop consuming it immediately.
People also use garlic for treating respiratory tract problems. Garlic is extremely useful and beneficial for that and it can successfully prevent and cure many other diseases, such as: tuberculosis, asthma, pneumonia, catarrh, bronchitis, chronic bronchial catarrh, lung congestion and cough. If you want to get the best results, you need to consume it raw or lightly roasted in the oven.
As we said, the best way to consume garlic is raw. Because garlic’s active ingredient – allicin, is denaturalized by heat. So, here’s what you need to do – if you want to get the best results, you need to crush and chop the garlic and leave it for 15 minutes before you eat it. If you crush the garlic and leave it for 10-15 minutes, it will activate a chemical reaction, which will make allicin more bioavailable. And now you probably wonder why you should eat garlic on empty stomach, right? Well, it’s because when your stomach is “filled” with food, it can be harder for your body to process and absorb all the nutrients the food has to offer.
This is a good way to mix raw garlic with some honey. Here’s what you need to do – just take 2-3 cloves of garlic and chop them into small pieces. Then, you need to add 1 tbs. of honey and mix them well. You need to consume this mixture every day. You will notice that just after one week you will feel more energized and refreshed.

While the extra load caused by running has long been a concern, especially for bigger guys who are pounding the pavement, it has never been shown to increase the risk of knee osteoarthritis—the irreversible wearing away of the knee cartilage—for runners, says Ross Miller, Ph.D. and study author.
The studies show that regular runners actually experience less long-term damage to their knee joints than non-runners. Even though running generates more force (and burden on your knees) than walking, you pound the pavement less frequently when running because your strides are longer. So, as long as your knees are healthy to begin with, running doesn’t significantly increase your chances of developing arthritis.
In fact, regular runners actually experienced less knee pain over time. This is partially because running keeps you super fit (meaning you are likely to carry less excess weight). And a regular running regimen typically leads to better overall muscle strength.
