    The Scapula—Studies of Tian Zong and related points.

    In the Chinese tradition the shoulder girdle represents one’s destiny, and  Tian Zong  encourages that expression,  the actions of man in harmony with his own destiny and his own genetic past, with ‘Heaven’. This implies  human kind  guided by an innate wisdom.

Acupuncture S.I.d.A - MANIFEST

The Italian school of acupuncture (S.I.d.A.) was founded with the aim to bring together the cultural experiences of various schools of acupuncture and reading of ancient texts of Chinese medicine in the light of classic Taoist interpretation of oral tradition handed down to us from prof. Jeffrey Yuen.


This, followed by a constant and careful clinical verification, inspired us to create easily reproducible treatment schemes that, distancing us from the protocols properties, leaving intact...>

The smoke: vice or need
Every “vice” is the expression of a need.
The need expresses an emptiness of one or more than one Jing of the marrows.

The dependence on cigarette smoking, according to S.I.d.A., is caused by at least two factors:
1) The emptiness of the Jing (in the marrow) of the lung which creates the need and the desire of a spicy flavour. Indeed the marrows are made up of the 5 Jing of the 5 organs together with the Shen of the 5 organs. The brain is the Sea of the Marrows which sums up all this connecting it to the outside through the orifices of the head.
2) Bad control of the emotions which causes physical and psychic dependence
1. The emptiness of the Jing of the lung of the marrow
The desire of a flavour is always the expression of a lack of Jing in the marrows of an organ:
The emptiness of the Jing of the lung = the desire of spicy flavour
The emptiness of the Jing of the kidney = the desire of savory flavour
The emptiness of the Jing of the liver = the desire of sour flavour
The emptiness of the Jing of the heart = the desire of bitter flavour
The emptiness of the Jing of the spleen = the desire of sweet flavour

The need of smoking (but also the need of alcohol) is therefore the expression of an emptiness of the Jing of the lung. Our therapy uses these points:
• BL 42 point helps the Jing of the lung drawing from “the sea of the marrow”.
• Sp 18 point activates the transport function of the spleen of the Jing for spicy flavoured foods towards the lung.
• Ki 22 forward Shu point feeds the lung through the Chong Mai as “The Sea of the blood”.
• There are other possibilities to have emptiness of the Jing of the lung in the marrow, for instance when the blood stops to feed the marrow because there is humidity in the vessels (curious organ). In these cases you have to use GB 22 point too.
Usually, people desiring a particular flavour exceed with food having that flavour thus they make their condition worse. In this case we have to suggest avoiding too spicy food such as pepper or chilli pepper.
2. A deficiency in the control of the emotions
Some patients, even if they dislike smoking because of the therapy, they can’t stop smoking because they have not enough will or they fall back into smoking after the end of acupuncture sessions.
In order to help the will we can add the following points:
• GB 8 or GB 9 testing the tenderness (dolorabilità)
• PC 9 point helps the control of the emotions.

At this moment, these are our findings, when we will have new arguments we will update you. If any of you have the opportunity to test the above points we would appreciate if you could share your results, good or bad it doesn’t matter.
Thanks for the collaboration.

Note:
For those who want to deepen the energetic mechanism of the desire of the flavours, can consult the booklet about “The obesity and the control of the hunger in acupuncture”.

    Personality and I.Q. can be explained by connectomes; maybe even memories - the most peculiar expression of our identity - are coded in our connectome. Genes alone can’t explain how our brain has become what it is. Connectome, unlike genome (even considering the variations of code triplets expressions: epigenetic), keeps changing during the entire life.
