Rain, Wet & The Damp Effects Us
So in TCM we talk a lot about how the weather effects us on many levels and in the clinic I'm seeing conditions like Arthiritis and Asthma which are the big ones. It's the damp from the constant rain that flares these two conditions up. Our bodies absorb the damp and because both of these conditions are seen in TCM as damp type syndromes the body is already holding damp in the joints for the Arthritis and in the lungs for the Asthma. So when our external body is experiencing more damp it enhances the Arthritis & Asthma.
