What is the problem with ‘dampness’ in the body?

Here is the second in Patricia Kowal’s wonderful Chinese Medicine Infographic. NUDGE patients often ask about my comments on the effect of damp on their wellbeing. It is responsible for a range of symptoms including

Heaviness

Stickiness

Swelling

Sluggish circulation

Tendency toward chronic illness

May causes cysts, tumors, edemas

Settles in the joints.

Have a look at Patricia’s information and let me know what you think. Do you recognise these symptoms and the accompanying advice about diet, exercise and overwork?
