Tissue Trigrams in the Pulse
The name “Fu Xi Wen” pays
What Are Trigrams?
Trigrams represent Yin and Yang in three energetic planes.
Heaven marks the top line. Man is found in the middle. And Earth is represented in the bottom line of a trigram.
There are I-Ching methods you can utilize to make tissue diagnosis, but I am not going to write about them now. Instead, I am going to focus on Fu Xi Wen pulse diagnosis in which we determine the tissue-angles in Heaven, Man, and Earth in the pulse all at the same time.
When you put these tissue-angles together from the pulse into a trigram, you get a three-dimensional description of the imbalanced area. What would this look like? Well, you could read “tendon” in the Heaven level, “tendon” in the Man level, and “tendon” in the Earth level. Or, you could read “deep capillary” in the Heaven level, “major artery” in the Man level, or “minor vein” in the Earth level. Any tissue can present itself in any plane creating an incredibly large number of tissue combinations.
If the pulses return “tendon” “tendon” “tendon” respectively, then you are certain the problem is in the tendon. More often than not, you get interesting combinations such as my second example: “capillary” “aorta” “vein”. This describes an intersection of three different tissues. Sometimes you can figure this out anatomically. For instance, when “major artery” “major artery” “minor arteries” comes up in the upper chest, you are looking at a vertical major artery, an horizontal major artery and arteries moving North-South. Only the axillary arteries emerging from the aorta make sense in this case. In my experience, more often than not, you can't use the pulse diagnosis to pinpoint a specific anatomical landmark, only an intersection of anatomical parts somewhere in the line of force or energetic zone you are diagnosing. Simply treat the angles of the trigram one after the other in their respective Heaven, Man, and Earth planes in the local area or remotely and you get amazing results.
Using tissue trigrams and treating
problems in three dimensions has amazing results. Often the three
tissues make sense together and explain the symptom. But even if they
