The Chinese Clock

All your organs work 24 hours a day - but according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, here are the peak hours when specific organs are most active and therefore being replenished by your body:

5:00 am to 7:00 am                                Large Intestine

7:00 am to 9:00 am                        Stomach

9:00 am to 11:00 am                      Spleen and pancreas

11:00 am to 1:00 pm                       Heart and mind

1:00 pm to 3:00 pm                        Small Intestine

3:00 pm to 5:00 pm                        Bladder

5:00 pm to 7:00 pm                        Kidneys

7:00 pm to 9:00 pm                        Heart governor**

9:00 pm to 11:00 pm                      Triple Heater*

11:00 pm to 1:00 am                      Gall Bladder

11:00 pm to 3:00 am                       Adrenals

1:00 am to 3:00 am                        Liver

*The Upper Heater is above the diaphragm and so includes the heart and lungs.  The Middle Heater is from the diaphragm to the umbilicus (belly button) and so includes the stomach, spleen and liver.  The Lower Heater is from the umbilicus to bottom of the torso and so includes kidneys, bladder and intestines.  This division refers to the three processes of energy processing in our bodies – inspiration and exhalation (upper heater), digestion (middle heater) and elimination (lower heater). 

**The heart not only circulates your blood, but is also the base of consciousness.
