Immune Disorders

Immunity in Traditional Chinese Medicine is highly dependant on both the spleen and lungs.   The lungs control the external aspect of the body regulating the opening and closing of the pores.   The lungs also control a defensive energy called "Wei Qi".   Wei Qi (also known as Defensive Qi) circulates on the surface of the body protecting us from external invasion of evil pathogens, such as that from a cold or flu.  

The spleen helps keep our energy levels up by transforming food Qi into useable Qi   for our body.   When we have enough Qi and our wei Qi is strong, we are able to fight off many acute disorders without even a sniffle, if either the lungs or spleen are comprimised then the acute cold enters our body giving rise many flu like symptoms.
