Nose & Throat Problems

The nose is directly dominated by the lungs. Chinese Medicine treatment will be through the lung channel or the lungs themselves. According to Chinese Medicine sneezing or a runny nose is a weakness caused by wind and cold in the lung.

Throat problems can also be due to a blockage in the lung. A Chinese Medicine practitioner will prescribe Mulberry leaf, plantain seed, pepperminthoneysuckle flowers or skullcap.

Chinese Medicine sees nose-bleeds as the result of heat in the blood. In the case of women who have nose-bleeds during menstrual periods, the problem is considered to be blood rising instead of descending. Fresh herbs are the most effective cure for this condition; rehmanniapeony root and thistle being the ones most commonly used.
