We continue through the cycle of the Organ Networks, with an in-depth exploration of the Large Intestine Network. In a previous episode, we provided a general introduction to the 12 Organ Networks of Chinese medicine, and a more detailed description of the Lung Organ Network. Each of the twelve represents a set of functions that can be observed throughout the natural world, including the human body. In this episode, we discuss phenomena and themes associated with the Large Intestine organ network.
Heiner and Laurie discuss the wisdom of traditional diets with “grassroots” expert Sally Fallon Morell. Sally began her journey into nutrition as an interested and observant mother. She quickly found that much of the modern view of nutrition has been highly influenced by business interests, rather than being informed by solid research and time-worn experience. Through open-minded exploration, she has become a proponent of ideas that may surprise (and delight) you!
The great Tang dynasty scholar physician Sun Simiao hinted 1,400 years ago that the secret of understanding the power of the acupuncture points is encoded in their ancient names—a vital piece of information with enormous clinical implications, which has literally been lost in translation.

This series represents the detailed delivery of goods that was announced last year with the existing video lecture on symbolism of acu-points.

These presentations comprise a unique series about the physiology of the Chinese medicine organ networks. Based on a 10-year research project led by sinologist and Chinese medicine practitioner Heiner Fruehauf, these lectures explore a field of ancient symbolism that greatly illuminates the physical, emotional, and spiritual functions of the organ systems. Based on the introductory lecture, Macrocosmic Alchemy: The Hidden Code to Deciphering the Function of the Chinese Organ Networks.
