|Meridians and collaterals (GMW.cn)|
Meridians and their collaterals are pathways in which qi and blood circulate and through which the viscera and limbs are connected, allowing the upper-lower and interior-exterior portions of the body to communicate.
Huangdi Neijing is an ancient Chinese medical text that has been treated as the fundamental doctrinal source for Chinese medicine for more than two millennia. It said that Meridians and their collaterals could have the power of life and death.
