From The Lecture Notes....
This is actually one of the key concepts of Oriental medicine. It is very much connected with the concept of “未病を治す” which means treating the disease before it occurs. “Periphalising” is actually the physical/mental component of it. First, we need to define what I mean by the term “periphalising”. Oriental medicine is derived from nature. One of our most important human capacities is vision. I will explain using vision as an easily understandable example, but the principle applies to all our senses used in diagnosis and treatment. A lot more is going on with vision than “meets the eye”, if you pardon the expression. When we have something in front of us, we can pretty much see what is going on. In our ancestral past, it meant we could see if we were going to eat something or if it was going to eat us. If you are vegetarian, you could see if the berries were ripe enough and if anything was there trying to take your berries away from you. Anyway, we can pretty much deal with what is in front of us, but it is often what we see in our peripheral vision that we are primed to pick up on.
