5 Chinas ways to nourish his heart

shutterstock_227526400-676x450We have long known that the heart is associated with all kinds of feelings. You may have a broken heart , feel something with all your heart, or to thank someone from the bottom of your heart. You may feel very depressed, have someone trampling your feelings, and yet sends Valentine present.


Curiously in Chinese medicine, the heart is the home of his Shen, covering mind, the memory, conscience and spirit. And while these are all activities that are attributed to his brain in Western medicine, we tend to know intuitively that their heart is an organ of feeling and spirituality.

In Chinese medicine, each of the organs associated with an emotion, and it is not surprising, Joy is the emotion of his heart. But that joy can be a double-edged weapon, because too much joy can become mania.

Also, because your heart is the home of consciousness, that has any connection with the majority of emotional disorders, as Anxiety and insomnia. When you are out of touch with reality to the point of mental illness, his heart is always involved. Physical pathology associated with heart palpitations include (feeling of skipped heartbeats), insomnia, vivid dreams, chest pain, gum problems, and in some cases the feeling of being hot.

Then, Since the Chinese point of view how to nurture your heart? Here are some simple things you can do:


-Connect. A simple way to feed your heart is through the connection. This means connecting with your sense of purpose through daily activities and self-examination, connect with others through social interactions, and connection with the divine through prayer and meditation, all of which nourishes your heart.

-Eat to fuel your heart. He mirrors their attitudes about food and watch your life. Think about it; ¿You spend your time avoiding foods “bad” and counting fat grams, or you're preparing meals with love, come (mostly) healthy foods that taste good, and he meets with his loved ones to share a meal? It's hard to be happy when you are concerned about the nutritional content of every morsel that enters the mouth, so it is good to put a little love in what you eat.

-Be thankful. Although being thankful It sounds like something good, research has documented the positive impact of gratitude. Among the benefits the mental alertness are increased, better physical health, a greater sense of well-being, and increased optimism. Also, the sense of gratitude can lessen feelings of envy, materialism and egocentrism. So, while their blessings are counted, Gratitude makes you a (And better) happier person, it's actually good for you!

Go outdoors. Spending time outside is a way to connect with the amazing and wonderful natural world around you. In fact, researchers in Japan have found that spending time in natural environments can bring a range of benefits, including decreasing stress hormones, low blood pressure, and improved immunity. Walking through the forest is beautiful, calm, and … eh, natural. It puts you closer to the divine and nourishes your heart.

Cultivate and enjoy. Your heart is all about joy. Find the things in life you enjoy doing; those people, places and things that make you truly happy, and then spend time with them or do. When you're happy, your heart thrives Chinese.

Western medicine looks to the East

Until recently TCM has been virtually ignored by Western medicine. But is gaining more followers.


Traditional Chinese medicine teaches us that some people are likely to have fever and inflammation in parts of the body, while others are more likely to catch colds. Such as entrenched ideas in Asia are based on thousands of years of experience with patients, but are not supported by many scientific studies.

Researchers from some of the best universities in China, those who now have joined Europe and the US, are using Western techniques to analyze complex biological systems and adapt to the Chinese notion that the body is an interconnected whole. The idea is to study how genes interact and proteins in the body as a disease develops rather than examining genes or molecules separately. "Traditional Chinese medicine treats diseases from all points of view, explica Jennifer Wan, Professor of Biology at the University of Hong Kong, specializing in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM, for its acronym in English). Western medicine tends to examine people and diseases separately; this does not help to have a thorough understanding of the disease, ensures Wan. To achieve these objectives, Research on Traditional Chinese Medicine should improve.

With the studies of Chinese herbal remedies, for example, scientists do not usually record the plants studied, making it difficult to know what the remedies are made. Qihe Xu, professor at King's College London, recently acted as coordinator of a committee 200 Scientists intended to study the best practices of traditional Chinese medicine. Experts, if TCM treatments be endorsed by more scientific studies, could serve for drug development.


According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, diseases arise from imbalances in the body caused by an environment or an unhealthy lifestyle. Symptoms like having dry mouth or coated tongue are signs of a malfunction of some body systems. Although Western doctors often ignore these signs, in traditional Chinese medicine are a guide to treat patients.

A skilled doctor of TCM to know if someone has the syndrome of cold or heat can use this information as the first track to study related to the immune system or metabolism problems, as gastritis, rheumatoid arthritis or cancer. In cities across China are doctors who practice TCM and other professionals who prefer western medicine. Many patients come to the latter for certain situations, as a serious illness, but prefer traditional medicine as a measure to prevent disease. Until recent years, TCM has been virtually ignored by Western medicine, but is lately gaining popularity among the scientific community.

The US government established in 1998 National Centrol for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. The organization already has a budget of over 120 million to fund research on the efficacy and safety of alternative medicine. One of the aspects that most scientists are studying TCM is syndrome of cold or heat. Although the work is still in its initial phase, I could turn around research integrating biological approaches to the experience of patient care in TCM, says Dr. Cheng, Yale University, who also chairs the Consortium for Globalization of Chinese Medicine.

In a number of studies, el doctor Shao Li, Deputy Director of the Division of Bioinformatics, Tsinghua University Beijing, and his team examined patients with syndromes of cold and heat to check if they showed symptoms from conditions such as gastritis. To determine whether patients with gastritis syndromes were cold or heat, researchers raised questions as whether patients had cold extremities, if they had a preference for hot drinks or tendency to catch cold. Doctors also examine the mood of patients: one of the symptoms of subjects with cold syndrome is apathy. According to Li, easy to detect these symptoms could be useful. It remains to be seen whether the treatment would be different for patients suffering cold or heat syndrome of the same disease.

Chinese medicine expert examined in both types of patients, paying attention to the chemicals produced by your body's immune system related. The differences between them could lead to different treatments depending on the type of patient. People with cold syndrome may benefit from hormone treatments, whereas individuals with heat syndrome may need immune therapies, believes Herman van Wietmarschen, researcher at the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research.

Other studies also found differences in the chemical composition of urine as a function of cold or heat syndrome. Li's group continues to test the biological markers associated syndromes of cold and heat to classify different types of diseases, including cancer. The next step will be to develop more personalized treatments for serious diseases based on the two syndromes. Researchers believe they can find a better way to connect the Eastern and Western medicine.
