There are twelve energy pathways, or meridians, in the human body that connect to specific organs in the body. Chinese medicine believes that each organ has a two hour time period when the Qi is at its peak in that meridian. The Qi flows cyclically in a clockwise rotation like a wave through the meridians.
We always pay attention to symptoms that occur repeatedly at specific times because this may be an indication of the organ that is out of balance. For example, waking every night between 1 and 3 a.m. almost always is indicative of a Liver imbalance. The Organ Clock App will show you which organs correspond to which two hour period.
The Organ Clock iPhone App lists the periods in which the organs are at their peak Qi. It will display the details for the organ currently at its maximum, including whether it is a Zang or a Fu organ, Yin or Yang, which element the organ belongs to and a short description of the role of the organ according to the traditional chinese medicine and tips on how to behave during that period.
You can also browse all organs independent of whether they are at currently their maximum Qi or not.
If you think that you are suffering from an illness, please consult an qualified medical practitioner. Neither the organ clock nor the information about the specific organs can substitute for a qualified anamnesis and diagnosis.
