Let’s Talk About Clocks!

Many Blessings,

Spring has arrived along with Daylight savings time (March 6th) and an eclipse on the first day of spring, March 20. Often times I will ask you what time, day, month, year a health event occurred. Why do I do that? Good question! The body has an anatomical clock related to your position on earth. You have experienced this when your circadian rhythm becomes out of sync when you move quickly across time zones. You call it Jet lag. It also has to do with dehydration, but that is another story.

In Oriental Medicine, the time an event occurs can give a clue as to what has occurred. Knowing the time, it is easier to determine what to do to fix it. This is why I don’t adjust symptoms. Symptoms are not the problem, they are the signals that there is a problem. Symptoms result after the event. The time tells us where to look.

The legend is that the Rishi wise persons, of what is now India and China, discovered the body clock about 5600 years ago. The museums have ancient tortoise shells with drawings of how the lines or meridians traced thru the body. There are 12 major lines that are dominate for 2 hours every day. That is the simple explanation, then it gets really complex. We won’t go there.

How did those healing masters tell the time of day? The debate is on as to whether clocks were invented in the Far East or in the Middle East. Suffice it to say we have clocks and we can use them to figure out what the body is doing.

Mostly, modern medicine has looked askance at those of us who use body clocks, until now. Numerous researchers of circadian rhythm have now moved beyond sleep cycles into the cellular CLOCKS within us. Notice that they acknowledge more than one clock. Actually researchers recognize cellular clocks related to the heart, liver, kidneys, stomach, pancreas, brain and your body fat! I wonder if you crave a naughty food, that it is your body fat clock saying, “Hey feed me!” Go brush your teeth and drink a glass of water.

How can you use this new research? The best time to eat for maximum metabolism is at sun rise or 5am to 7am, Lunch is 11 to 1 and dinner is 5pm to 7pm. All food should be consumed before 7 pm. Best bed time is sun down. The best wake up time is 4 am when many get up to go to the bathroom and then return to bed. I didn’t say this was going to be convenient. Body physiology has been pretty much the same for thousands of years. Modern society has interfered with the natural cycles right down to using coffee or drugs to wake us up or booze, drugs and medications to go to sleep. Or knock one out. It is not a good sleep as defined by research.

By not living in the natural circadian rhythm with the light and earth 60% of Americans are overweight, many are on 1-10 medications a day to keep going. Cancer, heart disease and diabetes are wrecking our golden years. The February, 2015 issue of Scientific American article refers to a number of the studies. Also Discover Magazines has reported on the research. Most are available on the Internet.

Try this for 3-6 months. Eat during the suggested times, walk at least 20 minutes a day (morning is best), drink a quart of water for every 50 pounds/day, get to bed early, shut off the TV phone, computer several hours before bed. They emit a blue light that messes with your circadian rhythm. Junk the sugar, caffeine, and (oh I hate to say this!) chocolate.

You have nothing to lose except the need for some medications, feeling out of sorts, being in pain, being overweight, being anxious and depressed. If you can’t do these things I am here to re-adjust your rhythms. The anatomical clock is on my office wall! Check it out the next time you are in. If you want to see where your clock is stressed go to www.centerforhealinglife.com and click on Wellness Check. Do the survey and bring in the results page on your next visit. We can look at it together and make a plan.

These are suggestions for enhanced health. Each person needs their own exam for maximum care. Call 562-433-7395 or connect at www.centerforhealinglife.com

Health is the gift of love you give your Self

Long Beach, CA

We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: The last of the human freedoms—to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances. Life is never made unbearable by circumstances, but only by lack of meaning and purpose. Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. It is not freedom from conditions, but it is freedom to take a stand toward the conditions. What is to give light must endure burning.”
VIKTOR FRANKL, psychiatrist and author of Man's Search for Meaning
