Meridians of the Body

Lung meridian

The lungs govern respiration and the intake of energy.  An imbalance of energy in the lung meridian leaves the body susceptible to viral and bacterial infections, abnormal sweating and inflammation in the upper part of the body, problems with the nose and sense of smell, and skin irritations, eruptions and other conditions.

Large intestine meridian

The large intestine processes waste material in the body and extracts water from it before excreting it.  All abdominal pains are associated with an imbalance of energy in the large intestine meridian.  Difficulties with holding on or letting go in life are also linked to the large intestine meridian.

Spleen meridian

The spleen regulates digestion, helps to control the flow of blood within the blood vessels, and affects muscle and limb tone, as it is responsible for distributing nutrients (containing energy) around the body.  An energetic imbalance in the spleen meridian can result in:  general fatigue, abdominal problems (such as diarrhea, distention or bloating, pain and/or an uncomfortable feeling of fullness), lack of appetite, prolapsed internal organs and weak or flabby muscles.  Energy imbalances in the spleen meridian can also cause a “fuzzy” feeling or the sense of feeling scatterbrained.

Stomach meridian

The stomach digests food, extracting energy from it and passing that energy on to the spleen and intestines; all digestive issues can be traced back to the stomach.  An imbalance of energy in the stomach meridian can lead to feelings of worry, nervousness and acceptance.

Heart meridian

The heart pumps blood to all the other organ systems in the body.  An imbalance of energy in the heart meridian can show up in several ways:  heart palpations, short and shallow breathing, chest pains, problems with temperature regulation (hot flashes/cold sweats), dizziness, irritability and insomnia.  On a metaphysical level a healthy heart meridian allows for feelings of joy and bliss, and an imbalance can lead to psychological problems.

Small intestine meridian

The small intestine extracts nutrients and energy from digested food and distributes it throughout the body.  An imbalance of energy in the small intestine meridian can cause abdominal distention and poor digestion, nerve pain, acne, swollen lymph glands, sore or stiff shoulders, poor circulation or weakness in the legs, and constantly feeling cold.

Bladder meridian

The bladder is responsible for excreting liquid waste from the body.  An imbalance of energy in the bladder meridian causes all urinary diseases, back pains, stiffness in the neck and shoulders, and headaches.  On an emotional level, an imbalance of  bladder meridian energy can cause feelings of anger and an inability to express emotions.

Kidney meridian

The kidneys control the production of both bone marrow and blood.  They also store sexual energy and therefore regulate the growth and development of the reproductive organs.  An imbalance in kidney meridian energy causes backaches, genital-urinary disorders, asthma and a ringing in the ears.  Emotionally, the kidney meridian regulates willpower, determination and the ability to cope in life.

Pericardium (Circulation/Sex) meridian

The pericardium surrounds, lubricates and protects the heart.  The pericardium meridian is responsible for removing excess energy from around the heart, dispersing it throughout the body, and then dissolving it out through the hand.  This prevents the heart from becoming over-energized, as well as fueling other meridians and organ systems throughout the body.

Triple Warmer meridian

Rather than controlling a particular organ or organ system, the triple warmer meridian is responsible for the body’s metabolism, heat/moisture balance and body temperature.  The triple warmer is responsible for the body as a whole; and because of this an imbalance of energy in the triple warmer meridian is associated with a wide range of disorders.  Hearing problems, fatigue, breathing disorders and urinary problems are just some of the major issues resulting from an imbalance of triple warmer energy.  More accurately, an issue with any organ in the body is in some way related to an imbalance of triple warmer energy.

Liver meridian

The liver is a major organ for storing energy and regulating its flow throughout the body.  The liver meridian also governs menstruation and the female sexual cycle and the flexibility of the ligaments and tendons.  An imbalance of energy in the liver meridian causes PMS and other menstrual disorders, jaundice, dry skin, stiff joints, vertigo, dry eyes and blurred vision and headaches.  Emotionally, an imbalance of energy in the liver meridian results in depression, anger and irritability, and a lack of control and emotional flexibility.

Gallbladder meridian

The gallbladder stores and excretes bile produced by the liver.  An imbalance of energy in the gallbladder meridian causes liver pains, bloating and a yellow tinge on the tongue, skin and urine.
