The goal of this work was to reveal the peculiarities of patients’s acupuncture meridians’ (AM) relations during the classical and SU JOK acupuncture treatment. RL-test, a new method of meridians’ state electropuncture research was applied. It is highly significant and doesn’t depend upon the subjective factors. A diagram is developed for the analysis of AM relations. A scale of a skin electrical conductivity?s calculated parameter (CE) with the norm limits from 0.85 to 1.15 is submitted on a vertical axis. The AM according to the Creative Cycle (Sheng) of the Five element theory are located on the horizontal axis. The meridians of the right (R) and left (L) part of a body are shown separately.
That permits to investigate them independently. On Fig 1 the data of a patient that does not have any complaints to the health state and general condition are indicated. As it is shown on the diagram all the meridians CE values are balanced and as much as possible approximated to norm. A large data material permits us to make a conclusion., that the Law of Subordination almost everywhere take place in the meridians’ relations according to which one of the meridian is suppressed or activated by another that is located every one in Creative Cycle. A diagram of a 49 years old man with kidney- stone illness, hypertension of a 2-nd stage and costal chondritis diagnosis is submitted on Fig. 2 as one of many examples.
On the left-hand diagrams (L) YIN’s curve (thin lines) differs from the sawtooth form of a YANG’s one (thick lines). We consider it to be a phenomena of the Subordination Law according to which the increasing of Kidneys meridian’s (R) activity suppresses the Heart meridian’s (C) state. That in its turn increase the Lung meridian’s (P) activity. The same type of AM relations was revealed also at other patients with the same diagnosis. It is confirmed by clinical supervision on high heart dependence on the kidneys’ state at the patients with given diagnosis.
