TCM Pattern of the Day

Lung Qi Deficiency

Fatigue, SOB, weak voice, spontaneous daytime sweating, catch colds easily/frequently, pale complexion.

Due to how Chinese Medicine works there is an interweaving between "conditions" and "patterns" - i.e. a pattern can exhibit with many issues/symptoms and an issue/symptom may be driven by any number of potential patterns. This is where the diagnostic techniques within Chinese Medicine are critical - finding and resolving the "root" imbalance, as opposed to chasing after symptoms (basic guide here).

We also have a meta list grouped by issues/symptoms that you may explore.
