Heat Stroke Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for heat stroke. It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "heat stroke" is rarely designed with the resulting "heat stroke" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.

Within TCM, "heat stroke", is potentially related to the following diagnostic patterns - heart qi deficiency, heart yin deficiency, liver wind, lung qi deficiency, lung yin deficiency, shen disturbance, stomach qi deficiency, stomach yin deficiency among many other possibilities and/or layered combinations.
