English of Chinese Medicine (1)

It occurs to me that the translation of Chinese Medicine is such a fun. I can derive a sense of achievement from the work. So I collected some expressions related to some of our vital organs. Liver: (Yin aspect of Wood, energy moves up and out – kind of like how a plant grows.  Classically they say Liver energy rises on the left) Yellow Emperor’s Inner Canon of Medicine 《黄帝内经》states: “The Liver is like an army’s general from whom strategy is derived…” * Stores Blood 肝藏血 * Ensures the smooth flow of Qi (flowing and spreading, sometimes called free-coursing) 肝主疏泄 *  Controls the sinews肝主筋 * Flowers in the nails (Liver Blood provides nourishment) 其华在爪 *  Opens into the Eyes 肝开窍于目 *  Houses the Ethereal Soul (connection to higher realms) 肝藏魂 *  responsible for planning *  its associated fluid is tears 在液为泪 *  its associated emotion is anger在情为怒 Heart: (Yin aspect of Fire, energy is expansive in all directions) *  Yellow Emperor’s Inner Canon of Medicine 《黄帝内经》states: “The Heart is the Ruler of the 5 Yin organs and the 6 Yang organs….” *  Governs the blood and vessels 心主血脉 *  Controls the vessels主脉 *  Manifests in the complexion其华在面 *  Houses the Spirit/mind (often referred to as heart-spirit, it is the clarity – i.e. fire – of consciousness) 心藏神 *  Opens into the tongue心开窍于舌 *  Its associated fluid is sweat 在液为汗 *  its associated emotion is joy在情为喜
