Night Sweats (Sleep Hyperhidrosis) Connections

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