Crucial questions about the acupuncture meridian system that anatomical comparative approach succeeded to answer according to scientific method's fundamental premise: meticulous observation.
Why acupuncture should give science clear evidences?
Why the kidney meridian path forms a circle on
the medial aspect of the foot,
whereas the bladder meridian does not the same on the lateral
Why the small intestine meridian draws a
zig-zag in the shoulder, scapular area?
● Why amongst the back-shu
points is listed Dushu (BL-16), referring to Governor Vessel, even though TCM
does not connect it to a specific organ? Is there a plausible explanation
for why it finds just between Xinshu (Heart point) and Geshu (Diaphragm
point) and not elsewhere? If it is an organ, which could it be? Is there in
the body a "Governor organ"? According to comparative approach the answer is
yes, there is!
Why the stomach and gall bladder meridians
that are of yang nature run down the anterior aspect of chest-abdomen like
intruders into a yin meridian territory? Why differently the back is covered
by yang meridians only?
The following four questions/answers are
specially connected each other:
Why in arms and hands the acupuncture meridians are arranged in such
ordered, always parallel paths, with the three yin and three yang that cover
the ventral and dorsal aspect, never touching each other? On the contrary,
Why on the medial side of legs and foots the kidney meridian (as seen above)
draws a loop and little more above the three yin meridian run so close each
other and nearly touch at the spleen point SP-6?
● Why Traditional Chinese
Medicine privileged pericardium rather than pleura or peritoneum and
assigned the rank of main organ and meridian to it? What is the veritable
organ/function - imho unknown to modern medicine - that the ancient Chinese
wanted to point out by giving it the name "pericardium"?
Why head surface is covered by yang meridians
exclusively, and head organs (brain, tongue, eyes, ears etc.) by yin

Ask Dr. Marcelli email@example.com a question about particular features of the Acupuncture Meridian System that are not listed here, so that he can try to give an answer according to the comparative approach, and by the means of scientific method. Or - much better - you are invited to communicate your own answered questions, which will be published and credited in this site and in possible scientific papers. Science means sharing and progress of knowledge. Before I applied the scientific method to acupuncture research, there were no new acquisitions in the knowledge about the Acupuncture Meridian System since thousands years, so it was officially dead and generated comprehensible rejection by rational minds, differently from TCM herbology, which has already incorporated plenty of new acquisitions from modern chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology and toxicology.
