The points labeled here are for what acupuncturists call draining phlegm and dampness. Phlegm and dampness manifest in the body as: phlegm in the lungs, throat and sinuses, lethargy and fatigue, poor concentration, low libido, bad body odor, oily skin, obesity, trouble loosing weight, nodules, fibroids, cysts, tumors, swollen joints, dizziness, stroke, mania, emotional outbursts, epilepsy, mentalconfusion, edema, psychosis to name a few.
If your body was a system of pipes, transporting water, blood, and electric currents constantly throughout the body and some how one of those pipes got blocked, signs of that blockage would become apparent eventually (symptoms.) Not only would a clogged pipe stop functioning but a buildup of all the matter trying to get through would grow and amass phlegm, cysts, fibroid s and tumors.
These masses leak toxicity from their stagnant buildup back into the system to be moved through functioning pipes, so now this sepsis is festering in the whole body causing more clogs (illness). You can get these clogs mostly through diet and lifestyle that make your body fluids viscous. Lack of exercise and fried, fatty, or cold foods, especially dairy! The remedy?! A diet in warm nutrient dense unprocessed foods, exercise, herbs and acupuncture.
