The main reason is that its theory remains no systemic and clinical experience are scatterings and lack of comprehensive. Its therapeutic potential power could not be fully released. This lecture holds that the core of the Heart is the emperor of all organs; heart is the controller of Nutrient energy and Defensive energy; Heart dominates the blood circulation. It is reasonable to claim that heart malfunction is the original source of cancer, which was fully supported by clinical observation and the interrelationship between heart and cancer disclosed by lately medical science research.

The article introduces the multiple therapeutic modalities to increase heart energy with the effective modified herbal formulas and concrete acupuncture techniques. As well as delineating how to regulate stomach energy to restore the gut microbes to a relative better condition to achieve a great anti-tumor result clinically.
