The Lung: Chinese Body Typing

Learning about the Chinese Body Type of the Lung

The lung does much more than just breathing when looking at this organ system from a Chinese Medicine perspective. It helps with the circulation of body fluids, immune regulation (Wei Qi), maintains body temperature, and is useful for mental and emotional difficulties as it helps to lift the mood. The lung is associated with metal, and lung type people often thrive in order and structure as you would see in a large metal building.
