Timing is Everything: How to Use Symptom and Supplement Times

Timing is everything, as the saying goes. . .

Such is certainly the case with health care, natural medicine in particular. Each organ has a 2 hour block of time associated with it. During this time period, the organ is at its peak functioning. At it opposite end is when it is the weakest.

For example, the stomach is at its strongest at 7am – 9am (which is why breakfast is so highly recommended) and weakest during the 7pm – 9pm period.

The time frames for all organs are:

  • Stomach – 7am-9am
  • Spleen – 9am-11am
  • Heart – 11am-1pm
  • Small Intestine – 1pm-3pm
  • Bladder – 3pm-5pm
  • Kidneys – 5pm-7pm
  • Pericardium – 7pm-9pm
  • Triple Burner** – 9pm-11pm
  • Gall Bladder – 11pm-1am
  • Liver -1am-3am
  • Lungs – 3am-5am Large Intestine – 5am-1am

** Triple Burner is a term to describe the functioning of all sections of the body

How is this information useful?

If you are having a problem that is difficult to identify, noting the time period can assist you in finding the root cause of the problem. “Every day around dinner. . .5pm or so, my lower back really starts to bother me.”

One would then look at the kidneys as a potential cause or a contributor. If the cause or root of the problem is known, you can use timing to your advantage in this fashion. For example, let’s say that a person is prone to respiratory ailments such as colds, coughs and acute cases of the flu. Knowing that the lungs are at their weakest at 3pm-5pm, taking lung nutrition at this time or foods that strengthen the lungs such as asparagus would be ideal.

This latter principle applies to our product, Doc Wellness Supplementâ„¢. The pituitary releases hGH during night time. As such, you want to strengthen this gland during the day so that at night, it is able to release optimal amounts. We are one of the very few companies who pay attention to such details.

In terms of other substances and timing, consider the following:

– Take minerals in the evening or at bed time. They are more readily absorbed and will also help improve sleep

  • Take tonics such as B vitamins, potassium, Ginseng and Royal Jelly in the morning. They will help provide energy throughout the day.
  • Take the mineral zinc by itself. It does not interact well with other substances.
  • Taking enzymes after a meal will help with digestion. Taking before a meal will increase appetite.
  • Substances such as Spanish Black Radish or Activated Charcoal should be taken alone. They absorb other substances and render them inactive.
  • Coffee will render most homeopathic substances inactive. Do not mix. Mint will do the same.
