The lung meridian in the human body is a ‘lung Qi energy highway’. Lung Qi, also known as Wei Qi defends the exterior surface of the body protecting it against outside pathogens, including excess wind, heat or dampness. Any of these adverse health signs may be associated with asthma, as well as congestion of the digestive system.

The term “Lung” in Chinese medicine includes both the lung meridian and the lung organ. The lung type person is trustworthy and dependable.
