‘When temperature and humidity get high enough, our bodies struggle to cope. It can actually be quite lethal for us,’ says Dr Muhammad Eeqmal, Senior research scientist, Centre for Climate Research Singapore in an interview with Channel News Asia. Singapore is heating up twice as fast as the rest of the world.
The Urban Island Heating Effect is a phenomenon where urban areas experience higher temperatures than rural areas due to human activities and lack of vegetation. This can have serious consequences for our environment and our health, especially in tropical countries like Singapore.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine and Jin Shin Energy Healing, our health depends on the balance of qi, or the vital energy that flows through our body.
The environmental heat can have a negative impact on the Liver and Heart Organ Function Energies (OFEs) in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and Jin Shin Energy Healing. These two OFEs are related to the Wood and Fire elements, respectively, and are easily affected by excess heat in the body.
The Liver OFE is responsible for regulating the movement of qi and blood, digestion and secretion of bile, and the emotion of anger. When the Liver OFE is in harmony, we feel calm, relaxed and flexible. When it is out of balance, we may experience irritability, frustration, depression, headaches, insomnia and digestive problems.
The environmental heat can cause the Liver qi to stagnate or become excessive, leading to symptoms such as:
– Anger, impatience, aggression or violence
– Redness of the face and eyes
– Bitter taste in the mouth
– Dizziness, vertigo or tinnitus
– Chest tightness or pain
– Menstrual irregularities or pain
The Heart OFE is responsible for circulating blood, controlling sweat glands and the emotion of joy. When the Heart OFE is in harmony, we feel happy, peaceful and loving. When it is out of balance, we may experience anxiety, palpitations, insomnia and excessive sweating.
The environmental heat can cause the Heart qi to become deficient or disturbed, leading to symptoms such as:
– Anxiety, restlessness, nervousness or panic
– Palpitations, irregular heartbeat or chest pain
– Insomnia, nightmares or poor memory
– Excessive sweating or thirst
– Red tongue with yellow coating
Jin Shin Energy Healing is a form of self-help that uses gentle touch to harmonize the flow of qi in the body. It can be used to treat symptoms related to the impact on Liver and Heart organ function energies (OFEs) by harmonising the pulse at specific energy points on the body.
To treat symptoms of stagnant or excessive Liver qi, such as anger, irritability, headaches or digestive problems, one can hold the middle finger with the opposite hand. In Singing, this helps correct posture and aids all speech-based sounds.
To treat symptoms of deficient or disturbed Heart qi, such as anxiety, palpitations, insomnia or excessive sweating, one can hold the pinky finger with the opposite hand. In Singing, this makes a weak voice louder.
