In the pathogenesis of most prominent clinical syndromes (described in, for instance, Traditional Chinese Medicine) including precarious so called “Dampness-Heat” syndrome (see my article of December, 2012), “Blood Stasis Syndrome” (see my article of January, 2013), and of most terrorizing human diseases, exemplified by cancer, the pivotal role plays one of the three major physical qualities of our body’s energy, which in TCM is given the name “Wind” (Ayurveda calls it “Vata”) as the energy is light, mobile, dry, cold, irascible, baseless, and disquieted.
Originated in the liver and stored in large intestine, the “wind,” when rises disproportionately high, breeds symptoms of pain, spasms, convulsions, insecurity, ungroundedness, dehydration, itching, weightlessness, cold, irascibility, irrationality, disquietude, tearfulness, etc.
The wind can be endogenous (originated inside) and exogenous (contracted by the wind of nature or technology).
In the latter case the wind penetrates through the skin of the neck, shoulders, and upper torso, thence penetrating through channels deep into the body, reaching the bone marrow, thus paralyzing its production for the brain and bones, as well as the production of blood thereof the marrow.
Learn more about this most important phenomenology that also is a contributing cause of virtually every illness.
Some of the foods that can aid and remediate some of the “wind” conditions are Aloe Vera with black pepper, milk with almonds, or a mixture of ginger with black and red pepper.
Hot tea with lemon, ginger, honey, and cinnamon might help as well.
Consult a physician prior to taking any remedies for your health.
