Wind pernicious influence on health
Wind is one of the six pernicious influences on the health of the body, usually accompanied by, and facilitating, the action of other influences such as [Cold] or [Dampness]. It is associated with movement and is therefore recognized in terms of pains (itchings, eruptions) that move from place to place around the body. As an external influence, it is often accompanied by fever, fear of draughts, sweating, blocked nasal passages, sudden headaches, or sore throat. External [Wind] often resembles what Western medicine describes as the onset of an infectious or contagious disease. As an internal influence it usually accompanies chronic disharmony, notably in relation to the [Liver]. Other symptoms are characteristic of irregular and trembling movement, eg tremors or dizziness; they manifest on the upper and outer parts of the body, particularly the face, skin, sweat glands and lungs.
Excess [Wind] in the body affecting the [Liver] induces erratic behaviour, uneven emotions or uncoodinated movement.
