The lung (fei) is known as the 'prime minister' of the zang organs, which helps to manage air and water within the body.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, this is a very popular meridian to regulate and control vital energy (qi) to circulate throughout the body.
So, here's how the lung meridian can help re-connect your yin and yang...
What is the lung meridian?
In the eyes of TCM and Indian yoga practices, the lung is associated with wei qi, a form of defence energy which can contribute towards improved immunity.
The lung has a downward qi, meaning that all water and body fluids travel down towards the urinary bladder for excretion.
What are the functions of the lung?
Within the lung, the vital essence can produce many potential health boosting functions such as...
- Control qi and respiration
- Maintain the downwards flow of body fluids
- Regulate water circulation
- Store vitality or animal soul
- Link to the nose which is seen in skin and body hair
Without this vital essence, the effects may turn to symptoms of depression, dejection, sorrow and anxiety.
What are the solutions?
Utilising Chinese herbal supplements is a fantastic and sustainable way to potentially boost your lung health through the meridians.
