Dear Dr. Stefano Marcelli, we noticed that your paper "Gross anatomy and acupuncture: A comparative approach to reappraise the meridian system" is very interesting. We respect you as a pioneer in this field.
Yours sincerely,
Kwang-Sup Soh, PhD, Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Acupuncture and Meridian Studies.

NB: the author uses the words "channel", "meridian" and "vessel" as synonyms to define the system of lines, tubes or slices transporting the undemonstrated energy called Qi (pronounce "tchi") to all parts of the body. Anyway he considers "meridian" more suitable for scientific speech and literature, also because it is already employed in other fields of knowledge as in geography and morphogenesis.

 

The Triple Burner o Energizer of Chinese tradition (Sanjiao) is here renamed and identified with the Duodenum-Exocrine Pancreas, because the duodenum has at least three digestive functions that correspond to  those described by traditional Chinese medicine. In fact, duodenum-pancreas exocrine produces alkaline juice itself and receives bile and pancreatic secretion. In the pictures below, the Sanjiao meridian path on the face actually seems to overlap with the duodenum and pancreas.
