TCM Notes

Yin Organs Relationships

Each organ is nourished by the taste of the organ it controls and is damaged by the organ that insults it.  For example, bad liver should avoid pungent food, kidney troubles (diabetes) should avoid sweet food, but bitter food is good for the kidney.



Meridians begin with the lungs, connect through other meridians based on the path below and finally ending back at the lungs (after liver) and repeat the cycle.  Each meridian starts where the last one ends (ie the lung meridian ends at the index finger and the large intestine meridian starts at the index finger).
