Science Finally Proves Meridians Exist

Science Finally Proves Meridians Exist
Modern Science has proved what Ancient Healing Traditions have always known about Meridians. Learn how these Energetic Pathways are vital to your Health.

“In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy.” – Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, Biochemist and Nobel Prize Winner.

For centuries the ancient wisdom keepers and healers in several traditions had a keen understanding of the energetic body. The healing traditions from China, India, Japan and Tibet, as well as other countries all spoke of energy channels, meridians or nadis along which the vital energy flowed.

Life was considered to be a bio-electrical and vibrational energy phenomenon and so health revolved around balancing energy through various means. Life existed because of life force and energy running through and animating the body, ensuring we can move, breathe, digest food, think and even feel.

Healing traditions all spoke of energy channels, meridians or Nadis.Healing traditions all spoke of energy channels, sen, meridians or nadis.

Energy channels

This vital life force or chi, is composed of two kinds of forces, yin and yang, and flows along a sophisticated network of energy pathways, or highways, circuiting the body. Over 2000 years ago ancient cultures knew of the existence of these energy channels. They were called ‘sen’ in Thailand, ‘nadis’ in India, ‘meridians’, ‘channels’ or ‘vessels’ in China and Japan, and ‘channels’ in Tibet. In India, where many eastern healing arts developed, there were said to be 72 000 nadis or energy pathways. Disease is believed to be a blockage in the energy flow of these channels. A range of healing traditions, including acupuncture, acupressure, massage and yoga, are founded on the principle of the existence of energy channels or pathways, known as meridians, or nadis, running around the body in an expansive network.

While it may seem a little airy fairy to some to consider the energy body while we have flesh and bone, at source we are an energy field, embedded into another energy field. Our bodies are electromagnetic in nature and science has measured these frequencies with advanced machines, like EKG’s and MRI scanning, for many years. Numerous studies demonstrate these energy pathways and points conduct electricity even when needles aren’t used. And the massage technique of Shiatsu have been found to stimulate the same energetic effects. Similarly, Qigong,Tai Chi and the postures of yoga, have been found to increase electrical conductance at acupoints, yet science never believed in the existence of meridians until now.

Scientific research

Recently scientists at Seoul National University confirmed the existence of meridians, which they refer to as the “primo-vascular system.” They say that this system is a crucial part of the cardiovascular system.

Previously, North Korean scientist Kim Bong-Han proposed that he had found meridians in the early 1960’s.  Dr Kim Bong-Han showed over 50 years ago that new tubular structures exist inside and outside of blood vessels and lymphatic vessels, as well as on the surface of internal organs and under the dermis. He believed they were the traditional meridian lines. The meridians were called Bonghan ducts or channels, after his research, but now the existence of this system in various organs has been corroborated by further research.

The current Korean researchers now believe the primo-vascular system is in fact the physical component of the Acupuncture Meridian System. And it has also been suggested that this system is involved in channelling the flow of energy and information relayed by biophotons (electromagnetic waves of light) and DNA.

DNAimageThere may be a link between the meridians and energy and information relayed by DNA.

The Korean scientists studying oriental medicine with biophysical methods injected a special staining dye which coloured the meridians. By injecting the dye onto acupuncture points, they were able to see thin lines. These did not show up at non-acupuncture point sites where there are no meridians. The researchers discovered that the meridian lines are not confined to the skin, but are in fact a concrete duct system through which liquid flows, and that this liquid aggregates to form stem cells.

Previously, scientists used a combination of imaging techniques and CT scans to observe concentrated points of microvascular structures that clearly correspond to the map of acupuncture points created by Chinese energy practitioners in ancient times. In a study published in the Journal of Electron Spectroscopy and Related Phenomena, researchers used contrast CT imaging with radiation on both non-acupuncture points and acupuncture points. The CT scans revealed clear distinctions between the non-acupuncture point and acupuncture point anatomical structures.

The meridian system

There are 12 primary paired meridians and two single mid meridians, six yang and six yin. The yang meridians run down the body and the yin meridians flow up the body. Each meridian is also related to an element. Each meridian is most active at a certain time of the day or night and each meridian is influenced by an element or season.

The nature of meridians, in their elemental structure, and as vessels for the life force, show the intricacy and profound connection of our body at a cellular level, to the universe. We are intimately connected by the elements, energetic structure and flow of energy, to all life, at a cellular, physical level. Our earth is also said to have energetic pathways or ley lines, akin to meridians.

The map of acupuncture points was created by Chinese healing practitioners nearly 2000 years agoThe map was created by Chinese healing practitioners nearly 2000 years ago.

How are meridians related to health?

Our bodies need balance. A balanced flow or energy, not too much or too little, is conducive to good health. This is the same in the way we live our lives. Balance is paramount. Just enough food, water and a healthy balanced lifestyle. As the Buddha said: “middle way” or moderation in all things.

We can see this harmony and balance in life, as the balance between the energies of yin and yang – or more simplistically, masculine and feminine – the two opposing and catalyzing energies of the universe.

In our bodies we need balance, so a balanced flow or energy, not too much or too little.In our bodies we need balance, not too much or too little.

Our health is vibrant if there is harmony and balance between these two forces in the body. If the balance is disturbed, and the flow of one of these forces becomes greater than the other then illness arises. These forces or energies flow through very definite channels in the body, or meridians, and these are the body’s healing energy pathways.

In traditional Indian medicine, the meridians are expanded upon.There are nadis found within the physical body and these nadis make up the nervous system, the circulatory system, the digestive system, the respiratory system, the lymphatic systems, etc. Any blockages in these nadis can result in physical health conditions. Nadis can also be found in the subtle body where they carry thoughts, feelings, and nerve impulses. When these nadis are blocked, we lose our ability to feel, and connect deeply with others, the environment and ourselves. In the same way that veins and arteries are important for the body to function, nadis weave through our physical nerves and the matrix of consciousness that circuits the mind and self, supporting our physical expression from the otherworldly dimensions of existence.

YinYangChi is made up of two kinds of forces, yin and yang.

When the flow of energy is blocked, it causes low energy and illness. Practices like yoga and meditation work on these subtle energy channels, supporting the flow of energy through the body. According to some ancient indian texts there are 350 000 nadis or energy pathways in the body. In traditional Indian medicine and spiritual science, the energies of the physical body, the subtle body and the causal body are said to flow through the nadis. Within this framework, the nadis are said to connect at special points of intensity called nadichakras.

The three most important nadis are those running along the spine: ida, pingala and sushumna. The Sushumna is the central channel of energy in the human body and it runs from the base of the spine to the crown of the head and carries kundalini energy, which is the primal evolutionary force. Kundalini is awakened through yoga and meditation and is said to lie dormant at the base of the spine. Activation of the kundalini leads to higher consciousness states. The aim of yoga is to broaden the sushumna and to unite the pathways. Purifying all three nadis leads to overall health, and wellness of body and mind, as well as spiritual growth. Various Pranayama techniques aid in helping to keep these nadi channels open.

The three most important nadis are those running along the spine: ida, pingala and sushunma.The three most important nadis are those running along the spine: ida, pingala and sushunma.

If you are sensitive to energy and have had energy treatments, such as acupuncture, you may have felt streams of energy or a flow of cold or heat, for example, up the legs or arms. This is a freeing up of energy in the meridians and the flow of energy that is released when a blockage is removed.

There are many wonderful healing modalities based on the meridian system that support radiant health. By enhancing the flow of energy through the body, balance and health is achieved and we come in touch with our true selves. Acupuncture is a therapeutic modality used in China as early as the late stone age. It was used to treat all ailments affecting people. Acupuncture did not enter modern Western consciousness until the 1970’s when China ended a period of isolation and resumed foreign political and cultural contacts.

The range of applications for acupuncture has grown slowly in the West, possibly because of the belief that it has no scientific basis.  Perhaps now with the scientific proof of meridians, acupuncture will become more widespread for all ailments, along with other great healing modalities based on the energetics of the body, supporting more people to have vibrant health and wellbeing.

When I received relaxation massages that included also the treatment of meridian, an energy-line in my body connected to a specific organ, I was sensitive enough to feel the whole meridian on my body, from both ends I felt its presence. That’s sufficient proof to me, that meridians exist. The massage of the meridian resulted in better functioning of the organ connected to it and that’s tangible evidence to me, that meridians exist. You can find proof too, by massaging the spot (web) between the thumb and the forefinger, both hands preferably. You’ll find out how your constipation responds to it, possibly finding relief in getting rid of your headache too.

Very true. The exclusion of any science not connected to the AMA or Big Pharma has been going on since the 1900’s. I grew up in a Chiropractic family and I’m very aware of the prejudice instilled in the medical community. In the 1970’s the AMA lost a Supreme Court suit to the Chiropractic Association when the AMA was charged with Slander. Too bad the Doctors rarely actually learn much about that.

This does not prove in any way the existence of meridian channels. It could possibly be an explanation, maybe, but the scientific article talks about links with the immune and circulatory system.

In the 1950s, Niboyet, a French researcher suspected a correlation existed between meridian points and skin areas with lowered electrical resistance. It turns out that he was right when he scanned skin surfaces with a galvanometer and then stimulated these points with direct and alternating currents: electrical conductance at meridian points varied from electrical conductance at other areas, and stimulating meridian points generated physiological responses that are not elicited from stimulation of other areas (Niboyet and Mery, 1957). In 1962, Grall verified Niboyet’s work and further discovered that points of low resistance on the face and forearms corresponded to the meridian points shown as Chinese meridian points as well (Grall, 1962). These sources are cited from my Complementary and Alternative Medicine textbook. There are more sources if you’re interested.

Surely the energy would not be visible, just like the lines of magnetism. Remember the school experiment with the magnet under a sheet of paper covered with iron filings. we know it’s there but we can’t see it. Lines is probably a bad word. Why not use flow as in flows of energy. Can’t see it but we know it is flowing throughout the body.

If published, I would like to see the reference of the Korean study, and whether the research was carried out with humans or with animals. Based on the data published in this article, I found one article about visualization of primo vascular system. This research was done by researchers in Seoul National University, and the study was done by using rats, not humans. The publication is J Acupunct Meridian Stud. 2014 Dec;7(6):337-45. doi: 10.1016/j.jams.2014.09.001. Epub 2014 Oct 20. The name of the article is Visualization of the primo vascular system afloat in a lymph duct. The authors are following: Jung SJ1, Lee SH2, Bae KH3, Kwon HM4, Song YK5, Soh KS6.

However, this study does not – to my understanding – confirm once and for all the existence of meridians.

I found the article informative since it is supported by references.
In actual practice, many acupuncturists are also trained in Reflexology. They are compatible and complementary, each with benefits.

I don’t think it’s, as you say, “bunkum” – This system is tied to the endocrine system, nervous system (nerve impulses are around about the same “speed” as Qi sensation – I speak as an acupuncturist myself), and blood vessels. I think of it a bit like the clutch system of a car. The Jing-Luo transport Qi, Blood and body fluids, why can their pathways not contain a less viscous fluid that allows conduction of Qi from points to brain for nervous system response?

Great to hear about what you described the study in Russia to support the article above. I practiced Chi Gong 58 years since I was 12, I have daily practice the Chi and let the Chi naturally run through my body consciously or subconsciously and It help doing the resetting like a newborn everyday.

I am now 70 years old. Last year I have a whole body checking in the hospital. The doctor was surprised to say that my whole body situation like a 30 year old young man. I did not have at all any symptom or problem that all old man should have. I still play Tennis twice (3 hours each time) a week with full power in serving like a young athlete and I swing the golf club 100 times every morning. All my hair are still black and I still have very regular healthy daily sex life.

Actually I did feel the Chi running round my meridian doing the steering of my body and organs and daily resetting when I was tired after working and even very fast-healing every worn of sporting injury. I know I am going to live up to 120 years old due to this. I have written this chi experience a book and will sure like to share it free for those who are interested in it.

That was hilarious and nothing scientific about it North Korean scientists they don’t even know what year it is.

Why does it have to take White western supremacy/outlooks to verify and validate other people’s knowledge? And then steal it by renaming it? R & B “Rock and roll” syndrome…

Can’t find it. Where’s the link to this ‘scientific’ study?

The most interesting (??!) thing about this article is that, like most pseudo-scientific drivel, they fail to reference any scholarly work to support their assertions. It’s a great story; but where are the footnotes? The references? The peer-reviewed studies? Without that, it’s just a story, a fairy tale. Yeaaaaahhhhh! Peter Pan DOES exist!

DEar Guest, it is only an article like those in science magazines and, of course, not technically embased. Nevertheles a rapid search through Scientif Search sites like PubMed shows there exists serious reasearch about Primo Vascular System (fact). Ex: Kang KA, Maldonado C, Vodyanoy V.. 2016. Technical Challenges in Current Primo Vascular System Research and Potential Solutions. J Acupunct Meridian Stud. Dec;9(6):297-306. doi: 10.1016/j.jams.2016.02.001. Epub 2016 Feb 17. Review.
On the other hand, if Primo Vascular System is really related to Accupuncture Meridians in still a long way to go.

Sad that many have to wait for science to give them ok to believe what our ancient tradition has documented.

The only way to verify any assertion, either pro or con, is through direct experience and not that of others. Listen more, speak less.

Thank you Azriel ReShel for this interesting and uplifting article. Almost all comments here prove clearly that North American people are one of the most ignorant and arrogant people on Earth. There is nothing uplifting or positive connection in these comments. I wonder why these negative minded people are reading this website.
