Malignant Breast Lumps 5/5 (38)

According to traditional acupuncture theory, breast health is most affected by the channels that run directly through the breast–Stomach, Liver, Kidney, Lung, Pericardium and Spleen channels.  To test this theory, Dr.Chris Teo recently wrote another research article entitled, Meridian Disharmonies in Women with Malignant Breast Lumps, analyzing patients with malignant breast tumors.

By graphing these patients before sending them for further medical care, he was able to find common meridian disharmonies that we may not have considered to be relevant. What did he find?

  • All women who had a malignant breast tumor had disharmonies in their bladder meridian.
  • Other meridians which showed a disharmony included: Lung, Spleen, Liver, Small Intestine, and Triple Energizer

Now, admittedly, the sample size is small, and this study can only be considered preliminary. Nevertheless, it does bring us some interesting information. Dr. Teo is finding that in science and modern medicine, ideas and theories change as more observations are made throughout time. Ancient Chinese text has established the idea that the Stomach, Liver and Kidney meridians play “the most significant role in breast malignancy.” He sees that digital meridian imaging devices, such as the AcuGraph, allow for opportunities to further research and to reevaluate or “fine tune theories that were handed over to us hundreds of years ago.”

I hope you enjoy reading his research article.

Meridian Disharmonies in Women with Malignant Breast Lumps

Do you have any thoughts on why the bladder channel would show up frequently in breast cancer patients? This is a great opportunity for discussion.

Have a great week!

    1. Why Dr. Teo always use the Jing-well points in place of Source points?

      Could you help me on this subject, please?


  1. Dear Dr. Larsen

    Best regards,


    1. Hello Lucia,

      I would suggest that you utilize Dr. Teo’s research on Malignant Breast Lumps as an interesting addition to traditional TCM theory. I wrote a paper while I was in college on the subject of breast cancer also. It was interesting for me to study the effects of estrogen and the development of breast cancer. Good luck to you!

      Best regards~
