Phlegm and The Mind
The pathophysiology of children can be summed up by the traditional saying: children are excess in
wood and fire; and deficient in earth, metal, and water. Due to their deficiency in metal, children are
vulnerable to external evils, and when these evils enter they are often difficult to expel and become
lingering pathogens. The deficiency of earth reflects the fact that the spleen is still developing. Thus,
children have difficulty transporting and transforming food. They easily get food accumulation (ji) and
produce phlegm/damp. The deficiency of water is actually the child growing into their kidney yin.
Children are excess in yang, but deficient in yin. It is the kidney yang that promotes the child’s growth
and expansion. Indeed, anything that “comes out” of the child’s body such as eruption of teeth,
descent of the testicles, menstruation, etc. are driven by kidney yang. The kidney yang is also driving
physical growth, which results in an increase of physical structure. This is yang engendering yin. The
excess of wood and fire manifests both as excess heat and an excitable, overly emotional and
sleepless nature, as must be expected when the heart and liver are excess. Some of the excess heat
may be due to toxin which the child receives from its’ mother during the time in utero. This “fetal toxin”
is increased when the mother is stressed, uses drugs, or has a febrile disorder. The mixture of
pathogens, accumulation, phlegm, yin deficiency, heat, and toxin results in a curious obstructive factor
called gan that can be though of as “insubstantial dry phlegm”. Gan can obstruct any organ of the
body. When it does, the effect is often to disrupt the emotional aspect of the organ.Diese Aufnahme besteht aus 2DVD's.
