What’s All About the Symbols♀♂?

You may have noticed that for some of the Nutripuncture associations and sequences, we denote a difference using the or the signs. On the initial glance, the associations and sequences may appear the same for both. In fact, at least one of the nutriments is different. These ones are gender-specific.

In Nutripuncture, there are 38 nutriments, plus Nutri Yin and Nutri Yang. Of the total, 10 are gender specific – Breast (24), Larynx (14), Vagina (07), Penis (06), Uterus (28), Prostate (21), and the feminine and the masculine ones for each of the Master of Heart (35/36) and Triple Heater (37/38).

Life is about polarity and cannot exist without it. Life begins with polarity, in our cells. While the male or female sensibility is awakened at puberty, the cells have always been polarized into femininity or masculinity. This isn’t a matter of gender preferences or orientation but simply the body is different on a cellular level for a female or a male body.

Therefore whenever we need to activate Master of Heart, Triple Heater or any of the gender-specific organ/meridians, we use different nutriments.

To promote cellular health and communication, balanced expression of our polarity is crucial.
