The ancient Chinese medical texts say the body is animated by energy, called "chi." The chi flows through channels, called "meridians." Disease results when the flow of chi is blocked, and the function of acupuncture is to remove such blockages. But what are these meridians? Why did we not learn of them in our college anatomy classes? Are they purely energetic, or do they have a basis in the physical structure of the body? This article sheds some light on the topic and perhaps points to an answer. Enjoy!http://upliftconnect.com/science-proves-meridians-… ... See MoreSee Less
