Cancer is the #1 cause of death in the modern world. Over 25% of deaths every year
are the direct result of malignant diseases, or the side-effects of their treatments.
One in three people living today will suffer from Cancer within their lifetime!
More and more patients, suffering from Cancer and from the side-effects of medical
treatments, are turning to Chinese Medicine in an effort to boost their immune
system and to combat the ravages of disease.
According to Chinese medicine, a healthy immune system is the result of proper
communication and interaction between four different types of Qi, flowing through
four different channel systems:
衛氣 Wei Qi – Protective energy – is governed by the Sinew channels
營氣 Ying Qi – Nourishing energy – is governed by the Main channels
精氣 Jing Qi – Essential energy – is governed by the Extraordinary channels
正氣 Zheng Qi – Upright energy – is governed by the Divergent channels
Yellow Emperor said:
“From the twelve Divergent Channels mankind is born and illnesses arise.
Through them mankind can be cured or illnesses can advance.” Ling Shu ch. 11
Divergent channels protect the essential energies of the internal organs
engaging the pathogenic energy – 邪氣 Xie Qi – at the level of the joints, the
connecting tissues and the mucous membranes in and around the organs;
or by encapsulating the pathology within the organ and restricting its growth and
Divergent channel pathologies can manifest as chronic low-grade inflammations
causing degenerative diseases (osteoporosis, arthritis), auto-immune disorders,
growths and Cancer.
In this upcoming lecture we will explore the points, the trajectories and the
patho-physiology of the Divergent channels.
We will discuss methods of diagnosis, strategies of treatment and numerous
examples of treating Cancer patients with the help of acupuncture.
