In acupuncture, there are what is know as “microsystems.” They are basically a part of the body which represents the entire body. There are a number of them including the scalp, stomach, hand, foot and the most useful of all, the ear.
If we played connect-the-dots on the ear, it would look like an upside-down fetus. The lobe area represents the head. The outer rim represents the spine. The guts are found on the inside.
It is that earlobe that is of interest here.
Take a minute and go look at your earlobe, particularly that of your dominant side. (Ex/ Right earlobe if you are right-handed and vice versa.)
Do you see any diagonal lines or creases?
If not, that is good news.
If so, it typically means that you need to go over and above the call of duty to take care of your cardiovascular system. In other words, treat your heart well via nutrition, supplementation and exercise.
In 1973, an article was published in the New England Journal of Medicine which the authors stated what Acupuncture Physicians have known for centuries – that line on the earlobe correlates with cardiovascular disease.
It is by no means a “guarantee” but history and science have proven that the connection exists.
Why risk it? It is a good idea to take care of the heart anyway.
