Imdur (Isosorbide Mononitrate)

Other names: Ismo, Monoket
The Chinese believe that there are twelve main meridians, and many more lesser meridians, of energy which connect the body’s various organs, both to each other and to a particular part of the body’s surface. For instance, the liver is connected to the foot, the stomach to the hand and so on. The meridians are divided into five groups. These are main, connecting, divergent, muscle and extra.
Acupuncture points lie along the lengths of the main meridians. In effect, they are contact points for the organs and link each organ to a particular point on the skin. The Chinese believe that, when the point is stimulated by the insertion of a needle, a profound change in the flow of chi (energy) along the meridian, occurs. This, in turn, affects the organ itself. There are 361 named acupuncture points, distributed throughout the body as follows: 75 in the region of the head; 63 on each arm; 139 on the trunk; and 84 are located on each leg. There are also 36 extra points which lie either side of the body, but not along any particular meridian. According to the Peking Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine, there are, currently, 83 acupuncture points in common use.
One of the most interesting groups of acupuncture points are known as the Bei-shu points. They are arranged on the back, at either side of the spine, from the shoulder blades downwards. These points are linked to the lung, heart, liver, stomach, kidney, large and small intestines and bladder. Discovering the precise location of a tender area of the back, enables the acupuncturist to diagnose which organ is diseased. Stimulating a Bei-shu point is believed to assist the damaged organ to regain function. As discussed in Chapter 7, food and chemical allergies can damage the major organs of the body by the accumulation of toxins. Allergy sufferers often do experience positive results from acupuncture, especially once the allergens are identified and avoided.
