CHINESE ORGAN CLOCK Awake at the same time every night? This warning signal is behind it


Some people have trouble falling asleep, others always wake up at the same time every night. In the video, you can see which time could be an alarm signal from your body - and what the Chinese Organ Clock has to do with it.
What is the Chinese Organ Clock?
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), attention has been paid to the various human cycles for thousands of years. According to this knowledge, our life energy (Qi) flows through our body along twelve pathways called meridians. The main meridians are each assigned to one organ. Every two hours a meridian and thus a certain organ is particularly well supplied with blood and thus supplied with a maximum of life energy - this is the principle of the Chinese organ clock. Twelve hours later, the supplied organ has its low point accordingly. If you know the pathways and live in harmony with the natural flow, you can optimally support the organs - and thus contribute to your own well-being. In the video above you can see exactly which time could be a potential warning signal for an organ.

Chinese organ clock: The times and their meaning
21 o'clock to 23 o'clock: The triple warmer 
The so-called "triple warmer" is not directly assigned to any organ. The term refers to an energy cycle that ensures that vital energy can flow unhindered. During this period, blood pressure and pulse rate decrease, and the digestive organs enter the recovery phase. This is a good time to let your thoughts and feelings flow - for example when meditating.

11 p.m. to 1 a.m.: Time to Sleep 
During this time, the body begins to relax, vital functions such as blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature are lowered and metabolism slows down. Also, cortisol secretion is shut down. Food and alcohol are particularly taxing on the body during this period. According to the Chinese organ clock, to strengthen the main organ - the gall bladder - well, green vegetables and little fat should be eaten during the day.

1 o'clock to 3 o'clock: The body detoxifies 
Between one and three o'clock at night, our performance is at its lowest point. According to the Chinese organ clock, most organs are in sleep mode, with only the liver working at full pressure. Those who have previously eaten too heavily or drunk too much alcohol often wake up at this time. Alcohol and nicotine are generally poison at this stage of the cycle. Nettle tea and regular exercise strengthen the liver qi and give strength.

3 o'clock to 5 o'clock: Take a deep breath!
During this period, the lungs carry out their cleansing process. We can support the organ in this process by sleeping with the window open or by airing the room before going to bed. Those who still wake up during this time window of the Chinese Organ Clock probably have problems (asthma, allergies, sleep disorders) with the lung meridian. For those who can't fall asleep anymore: A morning walk is especially beneficial for our bodies, recharging our energy for the day.

5 a.m. to 7 a.m.: Just let go
Between five and seven o'clock, the body releases the hormone cortisol, which slowly wakes us up. In these last dream phases, we process the experiences of the previous day. The large intestine works at full speed and cleanses. In concrete terms: according to the Chinese organ clock, now is the best time to go to the toilet. We can support the detoxification work by drinking a glass of lukewarm water.

7 to 21 o'clock: Using the organ clock correctly
Of course, the Chinese Organ Clock not only tells us why we wake up at night but also how we can use it for our purposes. Accordingly, during the day it is also useful to live in harmony with one's Qi:

Between seven and nine o'clock, the focus is on the stomach: digestion is working hard now. Chinese doctors recommend a light and above all warm morning meal, for example, some semolina porridge with fruit.
Between nine and eleven o'clock, it's the spleen's turn; thinking activity reaches its peak at this time. Now we can work in a particularly concentrated way.
The heart performs best between eleven and one o'clock: a light lunch in the pleasant company ensures that we can recharge our batteries for the rest of the day.
Between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., according to the Chinese organ clock, we should listen to our stomach, because now the small intestine is working. Those who can treat themselves to a short midday nap. Also, we can now process the first impressions of the day and separate the important from the unimportant.
Once the midday slump has been overcome between 3 and 5 p.m., the urinary bladder detoxifies us. This is a good time to exercise and drink enough clean water to support detoxification.
The pace should be slowed down from 5 to 7 p.m. because now the kidneys are in focus. The body comes to rest. A light dinner and herbal tea support us in shutting down the organism.
Between 7 and 9 p.m. we should consciously enjoy ourselves, the body switches to rest mode. Spending time together with family and friends ensures that body and mind are in harmony. This time of day is assigned to the so-called pericardium. The pericardium is a connective tissue-like sheath that surrounds the heart.
