Understanding Depression & Chronic Fatigue: The Triple Warmer

    Energy Movement &
    The Triple Warmer/Triple Burner Meridian

    The triple warmer is called the Minister of Dykes and Dredges or the Official of Balance and Harmony. Of all the meridians, this one is not associated with a physical organ and is not recognized in Western medicine. The triple warmer relates to a functional energy system, which regulates the activities of the other organs. It is responsible for the movement and transformation of solids and fluids throughout the body and the production and circulation of nourishing and protecting energy.

    The triple warmer is broken down into three parts, the upper burner which runs from the base of the tongue to the entrance of the stomach, the middle burner, which goes from the entrance to the stomach to the pyloric valve, and the lower burner that runs from the pyloric valve to the anus and urinary tract.   Some research indicates that the it is associated with the hypothalamus, the part of the brain that regulates many autonomic functions including appetite, digestion, fluid balance, temperature, heartbeat and blood pressure.

    Energetically, the triple warmer is in charge of the transformation and movement of energy in the body, balancing the body’s energy by providing pathways of unobstructed flow.   Physically, it is responsible for the regulation of heat/cold in the body, where it harmonizes the function of the organs and regulatory systems in the body.

    How We Experience The Triple Warmer

    Balanced – When the Triple Warmer is balanced, the individual is hopeful, sociable, and has the ability to work well in groups. They also exhibit personal warmth and a good sense of humor.

    Emotional Imbalances – When it is imbalanced, the individual may experience depression, rambling thoughts, forgetfulness, despair, phobias, hopelessness, or be excessively volatile or extraordinarily phlegmatic. They may also possess an inability to deal with non-intimate contact such as in one-on-one relationships or with groups of people, and may appear standoffish.
