Sample text

Tears When sorrow takes hold of the Heart, the largest vessel (which is imagined in TCM to connect the Heart to the other Zang Fu organs) spasms, causing Lung Qi to rise. As the Lung Qi rises (the reverse of normal Lung Qi movement), the fluids also rush upwards. This cannot be sustained, so repeated rising and falling occurs, giving rise to spasm of the diaphragm in the action of sobbing. The throat is tightened; tears, runny nose and occasionally coughing result. Tears are often referred to as the fluid of the Liver, because the Liver opens into the eyes.

If the usual descending and spreading function of the Lung is impaired, mucus is produced in greater quantities and serves as a sign of Lung pathology. The obvious example here is the common cold – an invasion of Lung tissue by the Cold or Wind Pathogens, resulting in a runny nose. Urine The amount of urine produced by the body depends on the amount of available fluid. TCM theory agrees with modern physiology in that urine is viewed as a waste product arising from the metabolism. The excretion of urine is controlled by the Urinary Bladder, but obviously the Kidney is closely involved and other Zang Fu organs such as the Spleen, Lungs, Sanjiao and Small Intestine have a part to play in the transformation and transportation of this fluid.

As explained previously, the Body fluid is in a constant state of movement, whether Blood flowing in blood vessels or the interstitial fluid moving between the structures and under the skin, or the more precisely defined Jin Ye fluids. When pathogenic factors invade the body, they enter the most superficial meridians, particularly the Urinary Bladder and Small Intestine, and cause a general slowing of the flow. This affects both Qi and Blood. When fluids are slowed they tend to thicken, stagnate and become sticky.
