Human research studies and anecdotal evidence indicate that melatonin supplements can be an effective and side-effect-free sleep aid both for adults suffering from insomnia. The hormone melatonin is naturally produced by the pineal gland, a core-shaped structure in the brain. Research has demonstrated that melatonin may have several profound long-term effects on the body. Human research studies and anecdotal evidence indicate that melatonin supplements can be an effective and side-effect-free sleep aid both for adults suffering from insomnia and for children with autism, epilepsy, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and other problems that can cause sleep disorders.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), there is an organ clock that represents the time of the day when each organ is functioning optimally and has the most energy. There are 12 organ systems and 2 accessory systems that are represented by this clock. Here is a brief discussion of the organ systems with their corresponding times, and how imbalances in these systems may arise both physically and emotionally.
3-5am Lung: The lung is responsible for moving the qi (energy) through the meridians and to the entire body, as well as providing immune protection.
1-3pm Small Intestine: The small intestine separates the clear and turbid fluids, and moves these to the urinary bladder and large intestine, respectively. 3-5pm Urinary Bladder: This is a time of the day when you can feel a dip in energy levels, especially if you are not well-hydrated. 5-7pm Kidney: The kidneys are responsible for healthy reproduction, development, and growth.
11pm-1am Gall Bladder: Physically, the gallbladder stores and excretes bile, but emotionally, it is in charge of self-esteem and decision-making.
Thank you for this web site of informed and easily accessible information for healthy nutrition and lifestyle choices. It’s often important for many medicines to take a dosage 2 or 3 times daily in order to reach the therapeutic range so I would do just that, without worrying too much about organ times in this case.
Traditional Chinese medicine is a theory of medicine, as is Western medicine which emphasizes homeostasis. Thats a good question that goes beyond the scope of this article, though Im sure there is an answer out there for common hetbs.
We are two naturopathic doctors with a vision to inspire healthy cooking, healthy eating, and healthy living for you and your family.
Perilla, also known as Shiso, Japanese Basil, Rattlesnake Weed, Wild Coleus and Beefsteak Plant, is an herb and distant relative to the mint family. Perilla is a member of a large, extended herb family, that includes: the basils, the mints, lavender, lemon balm, horehound and more. In Japan, shiso are sometimes used as a pizza topping, eaten with sashimi or are cut into strips and incorporated into almost any type of dish. Stock images of herbs, spices, medicinal plants and aromatic plants for commercial and editorial licensing. Next we have Anise Hyssop, sometimes called Licorice Mint because of it’s licorice like flavor. All fennels develop a somewhat bulbous root, but the Florence or Finocchio are grown for their big, sweet roots. Great article – wish our herb fennel could read as it grows wherever it likes and if not kept in check it would be a carpet!


I mostly grow fennel to feed and nurture my swallow tail caterpillars, and others which stop buy my garden. This schedule is designed to release added hormone at the same time that natural production peaks. Lyndsay Wareham, ND 20 Comments Yin & Yang are opposite energies, yet they are interdependent and could not exist without the other. If out of balance, symptoms that may arise include acid reflux, stomach ulcer, and bad breath.
The heart dislikes heat (emotional & physical), so try to avoid caffeine, stress, intense exercise, or anything that raises your blood pressure.
If you haven’t drank enough water during the day, you are more likely to feel dehydrated during these times. The urinary bladder stores & secretes urine (clear fluid), and is nourished by salty foods so having a bowl of brothy soup, such as miso or veggie broth, during this time helps strengthen the bladder (and the kidney, which is it’s paired organ). Some activities that support this are to have a healthy meal (but not too large) with a little salt for flavoring and love making, which keeps your kidney ‘essence’ strong! To support the pericardium, this is the time to do something gentle to help you ease into sleep, such as meditation, light stretching, reading, or cuddling. During this time, to best support San Jiao, we should think about going to sleep during this time – having an earlier bed time in the winter, and staying up a little later in summer. If you’re not sleeping by this time, you are depleting your gall bladder’s energy stores, which over time, can lead to poor self-esteem, poor judgment, or difficulty digesting fats. If you’re not sleeping at this time, you can quickly become deficient, especially if you are female because of the importance of blood for menstruation (even for those going through menopause). The organ times article was made to be a very basic introduction to the TCM system of diagnosis, and so we didn’t go into too much detail.
An organism maintains homeostasis throughout its life time regardless of time and environment. But I feel that the best time to take herbs is whenever you remember to take them since often herbs need to be taken several times per day in order to reach a therapeutic dose.
There are three distinct types, green, purple and red, which differ by more than just color.
Though people grow perilla for the leaves, the plant produces flowers that are also edible. Please contact Steven Foster for pricing and terms at email link below or call +1-479-253-2629. There is Sweet Fennel, Wild Fennel, Bronze Fennel and Bulb or Florence Fennel-also known as Finnochio. Both the green and Bronze fennel don’t develop much in the root department, but their bountiful leaves are prized by cooks. If you let it flower and go to seed you will have a crop of  fennel seeds, wonderful for both cooking and your digestion!
In this way, melatonin may prevent the changes that lead to hypertension and heart attack; and may reduce the risk of certain kinds of cancer.
Symptoms of malfunction include constipation, dry stools, skin rash, and feeling emotionally ‘stuck’ .


Imbalances may show up as loose stools, bloating after meals, craving sweets, and low energy.
Symptoms of imbalance are palpitations, shortness of breath, cold hands & feet, and insomnia. When out of balance, conditions that may arise include duodenal ulcer, bloating with vomiting or gas. When out of balance, you may experience burning when urinating, yeast infection, or urinary incontinence. When the kidney meridian is out of balance, symptoms that may arise include sexual difficulties, low back pain, or premature graying of hair.
But your comment reminds us to revisit this article and make amendments to include this important fact.
It comes from a tree and its beautiful star shaped pods are ground and used in baking and cooking. The top leaves resemble dill, sort of fern-like and feathery while you might confuse the bottom leaves with parsley or cilantro. Shortly before puberty, though, the production of melatonin begins to drop, and then continues to decline steadily as we age. Indeed research has indicated that many age-related problems are caused by declining levels of melatonin, which leaves the body less able to prevent and repair oxidative damage. Here we will discuss the physical and emotional symptoms that arise if an organ is out of balanced.
You may find that you wake up between 1-3am if you have repressed anger or long standing resentment. It is often grown just as an ornamental in the garden because of it’s pretty coloring!
The ‘Mint-Chocolate’ Herb Plant has a chocolate and peppermint fragrance that will remind you of an after-dinner dessert!
Symptoms of liver imbalances include irregular menstruation, anemia, chronic fatigue, and headache. People incorporate it into salads or add it to different entrees for flavor. In Nepal and parts of India, its seeds are roasted and ground with salt, chillies and tomatoes to make a savory dip or chutney. Recently studies suggest that if melatonin is taken in the mornings, tumor growth may be stimulated, but if it is taken in the evenings, it has a retarding effect on tumor growth. In Vietnamese cuisine, it’s usually eaten as a garnish in rice vermicelli dishes and a number of stews or simmered dishes. In addition, as melatonin is secreted cyclically, in response to the fall of darkness at the end of each day, the hormone helps our bodies keep in sync with the rhythms of day and night.
