Health Issues/Symptoms Connections
Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for lung cancer. It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "lung cancer" is rarely designed with the resulting "lung cancer" 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, "lung cancer", is potentially related to the following diagnostic patterns - blood stagnation, kidney yin deficiency, lung dampness - phlegm cold, lung dampness - phlegm heat, lung qi deficiency, lung yin deficiency, spleen qi deficiency among many other possibilities and/or layered combinations.
