Have you ever wondered what makes a newborn baby cry when it is hungry? A tiny infant just out of the womb can communicate their needs to their mother without the ability to utter a single syllable of their native language. They didn’t learn this skill by reading a book, watching a video, or by any other form of education. Rather, this instinct was inborn, a product of what we might call “body wisdom”.
Body wisdom is what created you from 2 tiny cells, and it continues to run your body to this day. Body wisdom causes you to shiver when you are cold and to perspire when you are hot. Body wisdom makes you experience hunger when your body needs
food, and thirst when it needs water. If you have a harmful virus in your body, body wisdom creates a fever to burn it up. Body wisdom forms scabs to heal open wounds. Simply put, body wisdom controls and coordinates every system, organ, tissue, and cell in the human body, and without it, life would cease to exist.
The best part is, body wisdom is always on the job whether you realise it or not. It helps us digest whatever we choose to eat (even if we choose poorly!). It maintains the pH of our blood, and the temperature of our vital organs. It heals our cuts and scrapes without any imput from us. Quite simply, our bodies are absolutely amazing self healing miracles!
However, from a TCM point of view, this body wisdom can affected by the health of our energetic body. Meridian imbalances and blockages act like roadblocks along the highway of the meridian system. When you understand that imbalances interfere with your body’s wisdom, which is it’s expression of life, you can begin to see how conditions like digestive disorders, sleep disturbances, lowered immunity, and allergies can be linked back to meridian imbalances. Correct the imbalance with acupuncture and chinese medicine, and you restore energy to the body. That’s the impact of a treatment!
Sometimes there is immense power in simplicity. One of the best ways to ensure a healthy life is to correct the imbalance, get out of the way and let your body wisdom do its work.
