There is much written in the classics about damp environments and health. In a previous blog I described the type of conditions which may be considered damp types. Generally if it feels heavy or clogged up or mucousy or swollen or phlegmy, it is a damp problem. If you feel your symptoms are worse in the damp, rainy or humid weather then the root cause is damp. The aim of acupuncture is to clear the damp from the system and to bolster the system to dispel damp. Clearly if your re living in a damp environment, your are more likely to experience damp types of problems.
