MERIDIANS, CORRESPONDING ORGANS AND THEIR SYMPTOMS
LUNG MERIDIAN (Lu) YIN:
The lung represents the bronchi, the immune system (protection from infections), allergies and the skin. Psychologically it stands for communication problems.
The Lung meridian is the “Master of the Respiration”, therefore its acupuncture points are used for illness of the lung, the respiratory system and the heart. Its eleven points begin in the third intercostal space. The meridian runs on the inside of the arm over the thumb to its terminal point on the exterior of the thumb (In the EAV model this point represents the lymphatic system, which is not in accordance with the meridians as laid down in TCM!).
The lung meridian also represents the oxygen content of the body, is associated with the skin and shows reactions if allergies and heavy metal toxicity are present. The Lung meridian controls the exterior of body and all the Yin-Meridians. It reacts most sensitive to harmful external influences (such as wind). Discords of the lung normally relate to a lack of Yin.
The Lung meridian has a close relationship with the meridians of the heart and circulatory system. It runs through the diaphragm and connects with the Large Intestines in the abdomen. The meridians of Lung and Large Intestine traditionally form a Yin-Yang pair.
A disturbance in the thorax (the lungs) can cause a disturbance in the abdomen (in Stomach, Liver, Gallbladder, Bladder, Pancreas) and in the pelvis area (Intestines, Kidneys, Prostate) and vice versa.
Possible disease symptoms:
1 Allergy (visible in the EMG Biograph readings as stagnations/blockages)
2 Oxygen deficiency
3 Heavy metal toxicity (amalgam!!)
4 Disturbances in the abdomen (stomach, liver…)
5 Disturbances in the pelvis area (intestines, kidney)
7 Allergic skin problems
The Lung meridian governs the respiration and skin. People with too much worry and concern often show energy deficiencies in the Lung meridian.
Most allergic skin problems are related with liver and lung function. The physician should also consider infectious foci such as teeth. When dental amalgam overload (mercury toxicity) is present, the Lung meridian responds with energy deficiency. Energy deficiency in Lu / Li / TW, eventually in combination with weak Ki readings, often is a sign of dental fillings with mercury toxicity. Frequently Lu or LI show a blockage when provocation tests are carried out. (see flow chart Dr. Doepp).
Hypofunction of the Lu relates to pain in the wrists, elbows and shoulders, as well as in the back and in the thorax. Lu 9 is the master point for illnesses of the vascular system, i.e. arteriosclerosis.
