UMHB: Chapter 2 - Peripheral system

Please refer to Disclaimer for some information.

This system consist of "Si(Four) Zhi(Limb) Wu(Five) Guan(Organ)" 四肢五官 (Si Zhi means 2 hands, 2 legs. Wu Guan means eye, nose, ear, mouth and eyebrow). From the perspective of TCM, Four Limb Five Organ reflects the status of respective internal organ condition. So when we see the symptoms of Four Limb Five Organ, the actual problem reside in the respective internal organ. [MK: For example, Tinnitus sometimes reflect problem inside kidney]. A lot of doctor will just focusing on curing the symptoms, which the disease usually reoccur after sometime, as the root cause is not fixed.

That is all for functional system for the moment. We will discuss more on Network system in coming post.
