Is the cycle of the work system in the human body That is responsible for controlling the functions of various systems in the body, whether it is awakening, sleep or hormone secretion Even changes in body temperature The life clock will have a period of about 24 hours, according to the general time. Which the life clock is controlled by the light and temperature inside the body Which when the body receives sunlight and has the appropriate temperature The body will start working on a daily cycle. The circuit is called the Circadian Rhythms.
But most people tend to think Biological clock like a cadmium In fact, both of these are different. But is closely related Because without a biological clock The cadmium stroke will not work. And cause various systems in the body to not work naturally
Why does the work system in our bodies work at the same time? Is there a program to set the system time? That can do this because the body has a life clock or biological clock located at suprachiasmatic The nucleus (SCN) of the brain, Hypothalamus, manages the body’s system to work in harmony with the natural environment Because life and nature interact with each other all the time, together with nature, not stagnant Has changed over time Which results from the world revolving around itself and around the sun Causing the world to be under the influence of light from the sun Occurs in the circadian rhythm of the day, using a period of 24 hours per cycle of rotation of the world. The cycle is divided into 2 periods: dark (night) and the bright range (daylight). Physical condition to work in harmony with the cycle of the day in nature, otherwise it will result in a shorter life expectancy
For this reason, the biological clock of a person works as a circuit and takes a 24-hour period as well. There are two periods: the dark and the bright range. Eyes) with which nerve fibers retinohypothalamic tract
As for the dark (night), the pineal gland of the brain secretes melatonin to stimulate the SCN. When the SCN is stimulated, it sends signals through the nervous system and hormones to control the functions of various organs and glands. Allowing the physical condition to be consistent with the day’s cycle in nature, including body temperature, blood pressure, heartbeat And the sleep-wake cycle
Melatonin is a hormone that plays an important role in the body. By inducing sleep Adjust the function of the biological clock Help slow down aging And prevent cancer cells But melatonin will be shed during the night only. Due to being inhibited by light Although the light has a low intensity of only 0.1 lux (comparable to light on the full moon night), it results in less body melatonin.
Factors that cause the biological clock to malfunction include life habits (such as sleeping, not sleeping late), aging and certain diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia, leptospirosis. Sadly, for example, the nerve cells in the SCN secrete vasopressin, a hormone that controls the balance of water and minerals in the body and also affects the body’s conditions such as body temperature. Awake / energetic When people are older vasopressin and melatonin will be released less Resulting in biological clock malfunctions The elderly therefore have symptoms such as sleeping, not sleeping. It takes a long time to start sleeping. Shorter sleep period Not deep sleep And go to bed early This is because the receiver and other receivers In the body deteriorates
As for those with fatigue from a long journey (jet lag), the body must adjust the function of the new biological clock. Which may take several days or weeks Therefore waking up in the middle of the night While the Alzheimer’s biological clock will slow down Causing the time when the body temperature drops to a minimum, different from the normal ones, is reduced during 9.00 am to the evening instead of decreasing in the period from 4.00 – 5.00 hrs.
During the night there will be stress and insomnia. Therefore rose to do activities and sleep during the day or evening instead
For schizophrenia The biological clock will run abnormally fast. Patients are not asleep due to sleep disturbance. It is found that 40-65% of patients with depressive disorder often suffer from severe insomnia. Expected as a result of sleeping in the evening Causing the time to sleep late after 2.00 – 3.00 hrs. The body does not shed or secrete melatonin
Therefore, while sleeping, do not leave the light on. Because it has the effect of inhibiting melatonin secretion And should not sleep in the evening because it will cause the time to go to sleep.
Chinese medicine uses Yin-Yang theory to explain the two-sided relationship that is anti-opposite. But there is a constant connection and control over time. Yin means cold / umbrella
Therefore, Yin-Yang is comparable to natural conditions. Which has day and night And comparable to various organs In the body that works interconnected and corresponds to the cycle of the day, each time There are some organs or systems in the body that have to work hard. But that does not mean that other organs will stop working. All organs continue to work in relation to each other at all times.
The relationship between the organs (systems) of the body and the period in the cycle of the day
3.00 – 5.00 hrs. Is the time of the lungs To allow the respiratory system to work fully And various cells Get enough oxygen Especially at the brain The brain that receives less or less oxygen will have a deteriorating memory.
And the range of 4.00 – 5.00 am is the time when the body temperature drops to the lowest The body should be warm. Avoid cold weather This period is suitable for waking up to get fresh air and exercise. To help the lungs work better For people with respiratory or lung problems, breathing problems, coughing, sneezing, nasal discharge, especially those who suffer from asthma, be careful of health. Because this period is the time when the relapse is easy
Time 5.00 – 7.00 hrs. Is the period of the large intestine To excrete waste from the body And with cortisol secretion to help the body heal During this time, should drink water to stimulate the digestive system. And from this period until the early evening Blood pressure in the body will gradually increase for people with weak health. Will have nasal congestion, nasal congestion, respiratory distress, especially those with diseases Asthma should be aware of recurrent symptoms.
At 7:00 am – 9:00 am is the time of the stomach Because the body needs energy Therefore should eat breakfast For patients with migraine, rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis During this time, be aware of recurrent symptoms.
9.00 – 11.00 hrs. Is the time of the spleen and pancreas By the spleen acting as an immune system for the body Eliminate red blood cells that are deteriorating The pancreas produces enzymes to help digest food in the small intestine. The body is very alert. Therefore is the ideal range for Work / activity
11.00 – 13.00 hrs. Is the time of the heart Which is the most important organ Serves to pump blood and nutrients to the body During this period, the level of blood pressure in the body continues to increase. Therefore, people with abnormal heart During this period, sweating and feeling hot
13.00 – 15.00 hrs. Is the time of the small intestine Acts as a digestion and absorption of food If lunch is not eating or eating enough food During this period, you will feel hungry and tortured.
At 15.00 – 17.00 hrs. Is the time of the bladder, which serves to collect the filtered water from the kidneys. At 17.00 hrs, the period in which the coronary arteries and muscles in the body are strong Therefore suitable for exercise
17.00 – 19.00 hrs. Is the time of the kidney In order to filter waste from the blood and maintain balance in the body during 18.30 hrs. The blood pressure level will increase to the maximum and this time should drink clean water. (Should not drink cold water) and should not sleep during this time Because they will not sleep during the night
19.00 – 21.00 hrs. Is the time of the pericardium Which is an important component of the heart And is the period of the circulatory system by 19:00 h Patients with skin diseases During this period, be aware of recurrent symptoms.
21.00 – 23.00 hrs. Is the time period for all 3 systems, including the respiratory system, affecting the upper body (heart-lungs), the digestive system affects the middle body (stomach, spleen, liver) and excretory system. Affects the lower body (kidney The small intestine bladder) is the period in which the body adjusts the heat balance and the temperature in the body gradually decreases. Defecation is suspended. The body begins to secrete melatonin. This period is the time to sleep.
23.00 – 1.00 am is the time of gallbladder To collect the bile from the liver and send bile to help digest the fat in the small intestine Gallbladder and liver Therefore is an organ that works very closely and relates
Time 1.00 – 3.00 hrs. Liver time To eliminate toxins in the body Reduce blood sugar levels by synthesizing and storing in glycogen. And create good water to keep at the gallbladder This period should be During sleep, to allow the blood to flow to the liver well Because at 2.00 am the body will release melatonin maximum Insomnia, stress, poisoning or eating sugary foods Will send problems to the liver For people with heart disease This period may cause recurrence and heart failure.
Now consider the behavior of our lives that In accordance with the schedule of life clock? Because of some diseases May be caused by our living habits
