What is the San Jiao Organ aka Triple Burner?

The San Jiao Organ is one of the twelve organs described in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). It is a literal organ complex composed of the Connective-Tissue Metasystem aka the omnipresent Fascial Network that connects every cell in the body. Ancient Chinese physicians rightly believed that the San Jiao aka Triple Burner was composed of “membranes”. In the commentaries for the 31st Difficult Issue in Unschuld’s (1) translation of the Nan-ching, Huang Wei-san said, ‘The Triple Burner . . . is a fatty membrane covering the entire physical body from the inside.’ In the commentaries for the 38th Difficult Issue (1), Li Chiung states, ‘The Triple Burner represents nothing but membranes’.

The “Connective Tissue Metasystem” aka the “Fascial Network” is what the ancient Chinese physicians were referring to when they said that the “San Jiao represents nothing but membranes”. The San Jiao Organ aka the Connective Tissue Metasystem is responsible for managing every aspect of water within the body. Note that molecule-for-molecule water makes up 99% of the molecules in the body. Thus water is the most predominant and most important chemical substance in our body. The Nan Jing teaches that ‘the water-ways of the entire body originate from the Triple Burner, and the biological and energic influences throughout the entire body are transformed from water’. I believe that the underappreciated San Jiao Organ is an omnipresent hydroelectric generation system that is responsible for more energy generation from water than from food, and that all of the energy requirements of the body result from the hydrolysis of water.

Unfortunately, biochemists incorrectly give the credit to Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). In commentaries of the 31st Difficult Issue of Unschuld’s (1) translation of Nan Ching, Yeh Lin relates, ‘When fire meets WATER, a transformation into influences takes place.’ I believe a modern translation of this text should read ‘When HYDROLYSIS meets WATER, a transformation into influences takes place.’ It is water that makes proteins and DNA perform their critical tasks that sustain life, yet biologists and biochemists incorrectly consider water to be the inert substance that happens to be in the background of every single biochemical reaction that occurs by the billions every second throughout our body. This highly critical omnipresent control of water is all thanks to the San Jiao Organ.

Your San Jiao Organ Complex Needs Grounding Just as It Needs Air and Sunshine

I have discussed in detail how the San Jiao Organ is solar powered. I discuss that topic in my book (2) here, here and here. In the article titled ‘Fight Inflammation and Chronic Disease by Walking Barefoot on the Earth’, Dr Joseph Mercola (3) says, “You may not think of your body as a generator of electricity, but you are very much an electrical being, and this is in large part why it’s so important to use grounding to harness the electrical charge of the Earth to positively influence your health”. He then quotes Gaetan Chevalier, Ph.D., an engineer/physicist who has studied EarthingTM aka grounding, when he explained:

“Unbeknownst to us, we live inside a battery. The surface of the Earth is charged negatively and the ionosphere, a layer of the atmosphere about 60 miles up, is ionized by the sun. The rays of the sun are so strong that they split the molecules in two, a positive charge and a negative charge.

The negative charges are transferred to the surface of the Earth, through lightening mainly, and the positive charges stay 60 miles up. The problem arises when we don’t have a negative charge. We need grounding just as we need air and we need sunshine.”

Mercola (3) further noted, “When you put your bare feet on the ground, you absorb large amounts of negative electrons through the soles of your feet. In today’s world, this is more important than ever, yet fewer people than ever connect with the Earth in this way anymore”. Most individuals are fully aware that the large array of antioxidants available is very beneficial for optimal radiant health. What most people do not realise is that antioxidants work by supplying “free electrons” to the cells of the body to neutralise the inflammatory “free radicals” which are the cause of pain and disease. By simply touching the earth with our electrically-conductive moist skin allows the free gift of multitudinous “free electrons” to enter and permeate our body and engender wellness. But the grounding must occur daily for a large amount of time. That is why grounding products are critical for you future health and wellbeing.

Ancient Chinese Physicians were Aware that San Jiao was Propagated from the Earth Below

Regarding the functioning of the San Jiao Organ’s hydroelectric energy production system, remember that Nature ensured that we were born without shoes, and thus when we walked barefoot the free electrons entered our body through the acupoint Kidney 1 (Bubbling Spring), such that the free electrons essentially bubbled up from the surface of the earth and entered the acupuncture point hole designed to ground us on a daily basis. Shoes with non-conductive synthetic soles put an end to this natural healing process. Earthing daily allows free communication and circulation of electrons to flow throughout the entire body.

Regarding the famous ancient Chinese physician, Hua Tuo, in the article titled ‘Hua Tuo’, the author (4) states that Hua Tuo was “the first person in China to use anaesthesia during surgery. He used a general anaesthetic combining wine with a herbal concoction called mafeisan (麻沸散, lit. “cannabis boil powder”)”. The author further notes, “Besides being respected for expertise in surgery and anaesthesia, Hua Tuo was famous for his abilities in acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal medicine, and medical Daoyin exercises”. The years of Hua’s lifespan are not known for certain, however, the author concludes that the “best estimate” is circa 145-208. That is approximately 1,800 years ago.

Regarding how the San Jiao Organ ensures free communication and circulation throughout the entire body, Hua Tuo stated, “When the Triple Heater ensures free communication, then there is free communication internally and externally, left and right, above and below. The whole body is irrigated, harmonized internally and regulated externally, nourished by the left, and maintained by the right, directed from above, propagated from below. There is nothing greater!”

Remember that when Hua Tuo wrote this information 1,800 years ago, the only footwear was made from natural conductive materials, especially conductive salt-treated leather, which permitted the free electrons from the earth to enter Kidney 1 and energize the San Jiao Organ’s hydroelectric properties. This is why Hua Tuo could rightly state, “When the Triple Heater ensures free communication, then there is free communication internally and externally, left and right, above and below”. But, especially note that he stated “The whole body is irrigated, …… propagated from below. There is nothing greater!” Brilliant Hua Tuo understood that the San Jiao Organ was “propagated from below”. While he likely was not aware of electrons per se, he understood and appreciated that direct contact with the earth was essential for optimal health and wellbeing.

As Mercola (3) stated above, your body is “a generator of electricity”. Inspired Physicists like Gaetan Chevalier, are understanding more and more about the “body electric”, and how it is energised by sunshine, or as Hua Tuo expressed it “directed from above”. Further, modern research confirms how free electrons are an essential requirement for continued health free from inflammation. Hua Tuo expressed the recent scientific finding similarly when he initially expressed it, poetically stating that the San Jiao Organ was “propagated from below”.
