There is much evil in this world, but the evil I’m going to talk about today is a different kind of evil. Wind, heat, and cold are just a few that we identify as “evil” in Chinese medicine. They do invade our body and make us sick. Wind-cold, for example, often presents itself as common cold. We use acupuncture needles and herbs to get rid of the wind and cold. If you get a treatment early enough, you can actually get rid of the common cold and don’t have to go through a week or more of misery.
Wind, however, can cause much more than common cold. When you see wind blow, the leaves shake. Likewise, involuntary shaking of your body is identified as wind in Chinese medicine. The pain that comes and goes is a nature of wind as well.
