We have plans, but our destiny usually is not found in the maps we make of the world. It shows up in unexpected, random and often unguarded moments. There’s a lot we “do.” It does not come from knowing, but we can spin up a story in retrospect.

In this conversation with John Nieters we notice how our work in time tends to simplify. That our plans and often enough lead to an unexpected potently changeable moment. We explore the East and West of blood stasis, and curiosities of the circulatory system. Along with noticing how strange it can be when you notice something everyone else seems to be missing.

Listen into this discussion of potent paired points, poker, Zhuang Zi, real estate and attending to the smooth circulation of blood.

In This Conversation We Discuss:

  • Clinical experience and evolutionary learning
  • Useful point to point combinations
  • John’s personal inspiration for learning and teaching cardiology
  • Important but often overlooked blood tests for heart health
  • Damp heat and Uric acid’s impact on the heart
  • An alternative view of the heart and circulatory system. The arteries pump as well. 
  • Many signs of heart issues can be seen on the hands and body
  • Micro-clotting and blood stasis
  • Counting cards in Blackjack, high stakes poke and real estate
  • Pulsed magnetic fields and red light

Listen with your heart.
