Understanding Body Wetness
I was told
that in Chinese Traditional Medicine (TCM) our body is said to be ‘wet’ when
our spleen and stomach failed to digest all our foods and turn them into
energy. So this partially burnt energy contains moisture. This condition mainly
happens to the cold based person; but it may happen to anyone who consumes too
much meat or citrus type of fruits.
symptoms are many:
complexion looks pale and with light swelling. The skin may lack the
flexibility if the case is severe.
body feels cold, pain and lethargic.
itchy with red spots on the skin. When the red spots are punctured, clear
liquid can be seen came out from the wounds.
with plenty of mucus.
using cupping method, we can see water vapor produce inside the cups.
eating meat or citrus.
more onion, garlic and ginger.
consuming foods with cold characteristics: water melon, herbal teas, ice
creams, oranges etc.
