Heart system introduction in TCM

heart disease

When we played chess (Chinese version chess), whether we lost a rook or a horse, as long as the old man was still there, the game didn’t lose; but the old man was eaten by the opponent, and no matter how many horses and carts you have, you also lose. The position of the heart in the five internal organs of the human body is the old man on the chessboard, so the “Huang Di Nei Jing” called the heart “the official of the monarch”, in charge of the movement of vitality and blood.

   Chinese medicine says that the heart stores the spirit, the heart is full of qi and blood, and the spirit can be cultivated, then people will have a clear mind, a sharp mind, and a sweet sleep. Conversely, if a person’s memory is reduced, sleep is shallow and dreamy, it means that the energy and effort are not enough, so he should quickly replenish it.

   Chinese medicine believes that excessive surprises will hurt the heart. This means that excessive surprises can impair heart function. For example, Fan Jinzhongju (a novel in Chinese) is a typical example of great joy and sadness.

   The heart opens to the tongue. Traditional Chinese medicine judges the function of the heart by observing the changes in the shape and color of the tongue, as well as the fluency of language expression. For example, people with frequent ulcers on the tip of the tongue are heart-fired. Frequent breakpoints in speech means that they are too tired and the heart-qi is weak and not enough; the veins under the tongue are dark and varicose, indicating that there is more arteriosclerosis in the cardiovascular system.

   The heart-fire system is abnormal, and the following symptoms often occur: palpitation, pain in the precordial area, blue lips and nails, sores in the mouth and tongue, insomnia and dreaminess, neurasthenia, coronary heart disease, etc. So what are the good ways of Chinese medicine for these symptoms?

According to the five-element health culture of harmony between man and nature, red dates, red peppers, red beans, cherries, chicken duck blood, longan and other red foods and the pronunciation of he (he) are all related to the heart and belong to the heart-fire system, so it can supplement Heart. The best food for quench the heart-fire is lotus seed and bitter gourd. They are both bitter. The bitterness entering the heart meridian also belongs to the heart-fire system, which can clear the heart-fire. Frequent “he” sounds in daily life can also help heart function.

   Inside the body, we can use simple methods such as tapping the pericardium meridian, Mo Neiguan, hitting the Daling, and shooting the Jiquan to promote the movement of our mind and effort.
