Objectives : The relationship between the Lungs, Stomach and Kidneys were examined in relation to their pulses continuously beating without rest as discussed in the 『Lingshu·Dongshu』, with other chapters in the 『Huangdineijing』.
Methods : Chapters in the 『Huangdineijing』and annotations were referenced in relation to the contents in question of the 『Lingshu·Dongshu』.
Results & Conclusions : In 『Lingshu·Dongshu』, the Stomach of the Zuyangming is central. In the flow of Qi that is produced and circulated from the Stomach, we can see that Ancestral qi that is created in the Stomach ascends and accumulates in the chest area to disperse Qi throughout the entire body according to breathing and pulsation, while Nutrient qi exits from the middle energizer and ascends to the Lungs, circulates the entire body and Qi that is partially similar to Defense qi moves upwards to the head and circulates. In the lower part of the body, Qi flows to the Zushaoyin that is associated with Jing qi to assist
with actions of the Extra meridians, while it connects to the Ancestral sinew through Zujueyin allowing for smooth movement of the muscles and joints. The special emphasis on the pulsation points of the three meridians, Shoutaiyin, Zuyangming and Zushaoyin, is based on the Qi thoroughfare[氣街] theory, where production and circulation of all Qi in the upper, middle, and lower energizers of the body manifest as pulse movement of the three meridians, which are the fundamental rhythms and movements of life.
