Is Your Hose Kinked? (The Clock Continues Series – Lung Time 3:00am-5:00am)

Most of you would agree that energy runs throughout the body, right? For those who are not certain just think of a couple of analogies for a moment. Have you ever thought about the fact that lightning likes people? You know, people get struck by lightning all the time. It is attracted to the energy we have. Or how about in the winter time when you walk across the carpet and then shock a member of your family or the family pet for that matter. This is evidence that energy runs through our bodies.

Consider your body as a series of plumbing pipes or a hose. Remember the old Draino commercial? The energy should be running smoothly from pipe to pipe. However, every now and then a clog in the pipe or a kink in the garden hose can happen. This prevents the free flow of all vital energy and fluids throughout the body. So how could this impact you?

How do these kinks happen? Injuries, surgery adhesions, stress etc. Stress is anything that causes the body to get out of balance. Stress can be caused by emotions, lack of sleep, foods that are not good for you, cell phones, smog, traffic, work…do I need to continue? This is why your health journey is always going to be just that, a journey. You will always have opportunities in this world to create an imbalance just by waking up!

While we don’t really have a hose in our body, we do call these pathways where the energy flows, meridians. They connect to all vital organs, cells and tissues. The body tries very hard to connect these energy flows and keep them from being stagnant. Without help, the body has difficulty with consistent energy, mental alertness, concentration and stamina. Sound like anyone you know?

These meridians also align with our body clock. You have heard the term body clock before, but did you realize that the body cleanses a different organ every two hours of the twenty-four-hour clock? The body clock actually starts at 3 AM with the first organ of the day being the lungs. It cleanses for 2 hours until 5 AM. Are you one of those people that wake up during this time of night? Perhaps you can not go back to sleep until that time frame is over? That is a good indication that your body may have an energy block that is not flowing freely.

There are a number of ways to address this from supplements to modalities such as BodyTalkto various exercises that help with breathing and to enhance the energy flow.   A BodyTalk session can be done in person or remotely (over the phone or live video conference such as Zoom).  Learn more about BodyTalk and schedule a session.   For the next several months, look for specific exercises and products to better enhance the energy flow for specific organs.

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.


Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.


Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
