The Five Organ Systems Guide

This is a unique section of our website devoted to learning more about the crux of Chinese Medicine's success in understanding and harmonizing the Five Main Organ Systems. These are identified to be the root causes to most disease patterns. The principles and interactions of the Five Organ Systems is part of the beauty of Chinese Medicines' theory when consolidating and pin-pointing something as ultimately complex as an understanding of the human body. This is, by far, one of the most difficult, yet important subjects to comprehend when identifying Chinese Medical treatments.

You will immediately discover how this concept quickly builds upon itself and expands into a very complex system that is so flexible it can accurately describe and understand any individual's unique internal health systems. This will actually give the Chinese Herbalist the tools required for proper decision making with herbal formula strategies. As the title of this section implies, The Five Organ Systems are truly unique systems unto themselves.

In this section you will learn about the Heart, Liver, Lungs, Kidney and Spleen Organ Systems. There is a section devoted to each of these organ systems. On the bottom of each of these sections you will find a listing of common Chinese Medicine Patterns associated with that specific Chinese Organ System. A Chinese Medicine Pattern is a specific description of an organ system imbalance based on Chinese Medicine Methodology utilizing Disharmonies. This pattern discernment can literally describe the root cause of an illness. An example would be Liver Blood Deficiency.

If you would like to learn more about these Chinese Medicine Patterns, you will find a description of each listed along with associated disharmonies under each of the Five Organ Systems. A Disharmony is an ailment that you may experience on a daily basis. Feel free to click on one of the disharmonies to see possible Chinese Herbal Formulas to help with a particular Chinese Medicine Pattern.
