Overwhelming Cycle is when______________
One of the phases is weakened then the phase that normally restrains it, over restrains it.
Example of Wood Overwhelming Earth...
Wood normally restrains Earth. If Earth is weakened, then wood overwhelms earth.
Rebellion Cycle is when___________
When one of the five phases is disproportionately strong and rebels against the phase that normally restrains it.
Example of Wood Rebelling against metal...
Wood is normally restrained by metal. If wood is excessively strong, then it rebels against metal.

KIDNEY
If Mother is weak, then this weakens the son phase
Ex: If Kidney-Water is weak, then ___________ will be weakened. If Kidney Essence is weak, then the _________ essence and blood will be weak. This causes ______yang to become hyperactive
Liver-wood
Liver
Liver
If the mother phase is hyperactive, then the son phase is hyperactive. If _______ is hyperactive, then heart-fire is hyperactive
Liver-wood
If son phase is hperactive, then the mother may also become hyperactive.
Hyperactive heart-fire makes _________ become hyperactive
Liver-wood
If the son phase is hyperactive, then the mother may be weakened (son stealing mom's Qi)
If Liver-wood is hyperactive then the ________ will become vacuous.
kidney-water
If the son phase is weak, the mother can become weak (stealing mother Qi also)
If heart blood is vacuous, it causes __________to become vacuous
Liver blood

Physiological Relationship among the 5 viscera in terms of 5 phases: Wood-Fire
Liver blood aids the heart, liver free coursing helps heart move.
Physiological Relationship among the 5 viscera in terms of 5 phases: Fire-Earth
Heart yang warms spleen yang and helps it to move and transform.
Physiological Relationship among the 5 viscera in terms of 5 phases: Earth-Metal
Spleenic movement and transformation of the essence of water and grain enriches the lung. (Lung Qi created in part by water and grain)
Physiological Relationship among the 5 viscera in terms of 5 phases: Metal-Water
The lung sends liquid down to nourish and enrich kidney yin. Lung depurative downbearing helps the kidney to absorb Qi.
Physiological Relationship among the 5 viscera in terms of 5 phases: Water-Wood
Liver yin derives from Kidney Yin. Kidney essence goes to liver, liver can transform that to ________??
Defintion of Sinews

Water restrains fire. Kidney Yin aids Heart yin and control heat yang.
"The lung unites with the skin; its luxurience lies in the body hair. It is governed by the heart."
Fire restrains metal. Heart Fire warms lung and helps propel respiration
"The liver unites with the sinews; its luxuriences lies in the nails. It is governed by the liver."
Wood restrains Earth. Liver free coursing and orderly reaching promotes spleenic movement and transportation.
"The Kidney unties with bone; its luxurience lies in the hair on the head. It is governed by the spleen."
Earth restrained water. Water and grain essence aborbed by the spleenic movement and transformation enriches stored kidney essence.
