The body is genetically programmed to live for 120 years, support the gerontologists. However, only 1% of the population reaches the age of 100 years.
The process of cellular aging, although starting immediately after birth, accelerates after the age of 30. According to the researchers, genetic factors contribute only 25% to this process. Otherwise, the biggest influence is the disorderly lifestyle.

The Chinese biological clock is also known as the energy clock of the body. It shows the energy load in the body. Over 24-hours, energy moves within two hours frame, inside the body’s organs.
The human body is an energy system, called in chinese medicine also a meridian system. The system shows the movement of energy inside the body, similar to the blood flowing through the vessels. This system targets the entire body.
The meridian system is divided into 12 meridians and to each one, it is assigned an organ like the stomach, spleen, small intestine, large intestine, lung, heart, duodenum, liver, and bladder.
The name of the 12 energy meridians has been established according to the organs crossed, so we have:
- The Liver’s Meridian
- The Lung’s Meridian
- The Spleen’s – Pancreas’s Meridian
- The Pericard’s Meridian
- The Kidney’s Meridian
- The Stomach’s Meridian
- The Slow Intestine’s Meridian
- The Large Intestine’s Meridian
- The Gallbladder’s Meridian
- The Urinary Bladder’s Meridian
- The Three Heaters Meridian: upper, middle and inferior
- The Vessels-Sex Meridian.
These meridians are also called the Main Meridians and are divided into Yin and Yang.
- The Yin meridians are – the lungs, the spleen, the kidneys, the liver, and the heart.
These organs store and process energy.
- The Yang meridians are – the stomach, bladder, colon, small intestine, gall bladder, duodenum, and colon.
These organs change and excrete substances.
These meridians work for 24 hours and are divided into 24-hour intervals. Every meridian reaches on the top when the other touche the one at the bottom.

Below you have a timetable of the biological clock
We need to know that each body organ has a maximum activity of 2 hours a day.
When a meridian organ has the highest energy level, the opposite organ has the lowest energy level
Maximum operating period
1 – 3 – liver (detoxification, muscles, and eyes)
3 – 5 – Lungs (skin)
5 – 7 – colon (assimilation, elimination, skin)
7 – 9 – stomach (lymph, digestion)
9 – 11 – spleen, pancreas (lymph, digestion)
11 – 13 – heart (arteries, blood circulation)
13 – 15 – small intestine (digestion, assimilation, arteries)
15 – 17 – bladder (bones, teeth, removal, cleaning)
17 – 19 – kidneys (bones, teeth, ears, filtration, elimination)
19 – 21 – cardiac coating (compression of blood vessels)
21 – 23 – duodenum
23 – 01 – biliary bladder (digestion, muscles, eye)
Period of minimum work or rest
1 – 3 – thin intestine (digestion, artery assimilation)
3 – 5 – bladder (bones, teeth, cleansing, removal)

The rhythms of the biological clock:
- The liver activates. During this period oxygenation of the brain is minimal. Those who suffer from liver disease have an agitated sleep or even wake up during this period. Liver and bladder are paired organs, and those suffering from bladder disorders have the same symptoms. Smoking, coffee consumption, fatty foods, and alcoholic beverages are not recommended during this time.
- Lungs activate, so in this period, smokers, asthmatics, the people with cold, or other respiratory illnesses wake up from sleep or have restless sleep. The sick people are overwhelmed by the feeling of fear and insecurity.
- It is the maximum activity period of the large intestine. It’s the time most people go to the toilet. It is advisable to avoid stress and hurry during this period. Those sick with this organ usually feel worse than during the day. It is recommended to consume herbal teas.
- It starts the stomach’s maximum activity. Avoid exposing the body to cold or cold showers, a warm environment is more appropriate. Vitamins are recommended.
- Spleen and Pancreas are at peak activity. Consumption of alcohol is contraindicated. It is recommended to consume fruits and honey (the only time of day when the body can effortlessly digest sweets). The physical effort will be avoided. On the contrary, the availability of mental and intellectual effort is at its peak. So start learning.
- The peak period of heart activity. During this time, excessive consumption of heavy foods is not recommended. Decreases the level of oxygenation of the brain, for this reason, a lot of attention, there is a higher risk of injury.
- During this period the small intestine is very active, decreases the sensitivity to teeth pain, so it is the ideal period for dental treatments. The ability to have physical activity is on the upward curve.
- Overactive bladder period. During this period, it is recommended to consume large amounts of liquids (water, teas) and sports activity. The body can digest more easily and heavier foods further increase the predisposition for physical activity.
- Kidneys work at full capacity, it is advisable to avoid the actions of factors that make their activity difficult (fat, sugar, salt, soft drinks, food preservatives, coffee, alcohol, but especially stress and cold).
- Maximum activity of pericardium and circulatory system. It is the period of maximum receptivity of the senses, optimal for watching theater, movie, or music shows. During this time, all types of medication have maximum efficacy (both orally and externally administered).
