ASTHMA (as viewed by Traditional Chinese Medicine)
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine， there are two types of “asthma”. The first type is difficulty inhaling which is related to a Kidney disorder. The second type is difficulty exhaling which is related to a Lung disorder.
When there is any Kidney disorder， symptoms may include shortness of breath or difficulty when inhaling. When treating this type of asthma， we have to treat the Kidneys， Heart， and Spleen so the Lung function will return. There is a valve in the throat which allows only air to enter into our lungs when we breathe so no liquids or food can enter into the lungs. Understanding this concept helps you realize that no medicine should be routed directly into the lungs. When the Heart， Spleen， and Kidney are strong and functioning properly， the Lung function will slowly return. Difficulty inhaling is primarily a disorder of the Kidneys and is not a real Lung disease.
The second type of asthma deals with difficulty and shortness of breath when exhaling. This type is seen as a Lung disorder. The Lungs control the skin pores. The pores should also breathe when we inhale and exhale. Treating this type of asthma begins with restoring the Liver function. The Liver is the biggest organ underneath our lungs. The Liver should be treated in order to ensure it is soft enough to allow the diaphragm to fully descend as the lungs expand. The Spleen is also treated along with the Liver. The Spleen also should be soft to allow the diaphragm to fully descend as we inhale and exhale.
As you can see， when treating both types of 'asthma'， our therapies never involve just treating the Lungs. With any Lung problem， whether it be from a common cold， asthma， bronchitis， or even Lung cancer， if you continually wake up or cannot sleep between the hours of 3：00 to 5：00 in the morning， it is a body sign that a Lung disease has started.
How do you know if you are on the right track when it comes to your choice of medical treatment? It's simple. Just recognize your body's symptoms If you are able to naturally sleep through the hours of 3：00 to 5.00 in the morning， your body is clearly telling you that the medicines are working and the Lung disease is healing.
