As practitioners of life cultivation, we use the inner vision technique to feel our inner organs to find out if they are abnormal physiologically or functionally. Once we find the organ that is going bad, we can then try to return it to normal operation as soon as possible, using the various Mustang Cultivation Techniques. This will help us to maintain the health of our body without resorting to medication or surgical operation in later days.
In a previous article, we have briefly discussed each of the important organs as a learning reference. Now we will discuss in depth how we apply the inner vision technique to find out what is wrong with each of our organs.
12 Extraordinary Organs
We group the brain, marrow, bones, blood vessels, gallbladder, and woman’s uterus (uterus) as extraordinary viscera (organs).
Their common feature is that they are both a kind of relatively airtight tissues and organs, but they are not directly in contact with nutrients. Thus they are like viscera but not viscera. However, they do store essence similar to the five organs. Thus they are like viscera but not viscera.
The extraordinary organs (with the exception of the gallbladder) do not have any reflective relationships with any of the other organs that we have talked about before. However, some are connected with the eight meridians.
The brain resides in the skull. In the old days, it was said that the brain is related to marrow. The function of the brain is regarded as the house of the shrewd.
Wang Qingren in the Qing Dynasty made a detailed discussion on the functions of the brain on the basis of previous observations, and attributed sensory functions such as memory, sight, hearing, smell, and speech to the brain.
The theory of Zang Xiang attributes the physiology and pathology of the brain to the heart and divides it into the five internal organs. It believes that the heart is the official of the monarch, and the spirit emerges from it.
The formation of marrow is related to both congenital essence and acquired essence, and its functions include nourishing the brain, filling bones and transforming blood.
Bone has the function of storing bone marrow and supporting the body.
04 Blood vessels
The physiological function of the blood vessels can be summarized in two aspects.
The first function is to act as a channel for the movement of vital energy and blood, that is, the blood vessel has a certain binding force on the movement of blood, making it circulate in a certain direction and a certain path, and the circulation will not stop.
The second function is to carry nutrients to every part of the body and nourish the viscera, tissues and organs.
The gallbladder has been discussed previously. Please refer to that article for more information. Its main function is to secrete bile to aid in the digestion of food. However, since the gallbladder itself does not have the physiological function of transferring nutrients or to store essence juice, it is also a special and permanent organ for inclusion as one of the extraordinary organs.
The female sac is located in the lower abdomen and is the female reproductive organ. Its main function is to host menstruation and conceive a fetus.
According to herbal medicine, the physiological functions of the female sac are mainly related to the heart, liver, spleen, kidneys, and the chong and ren meridians. This is because its functions of presiding over menstruation and conceiving a fetus are all related to blood and essence. The heart governs the blood, the liver stores the blood, the spleen governs the blood, the kidneys store the essence, and serves as the master of the fetal womb, forming a sea of blood.
Pathologically, when various factors lead to abnormal function of the above-mentioned organs and meridians, it will affect the function of the female sac, causing menstrual disorders and infertility.
