Plum Pit Qi Connections

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