Climate and its effects on the body

Click here for the link to one of my favourite blogging pair Andrew Miles and Xuelan Qiu at They are highly qualified American acupuncturists who blog very occasionally, but when they do it is always down to earth, common sense explanations of what is going on in our bodies. This time they focus on the effects of climate both internal and external and provide a neat summary to sit alongside the recent Piktographs I have been posting. 
They cover heat and dry, cold and damp. They don’t say how they treat each, or even what you can do yourself to counteract their effects, but it will make you think about your own body’s state, particularly around ageing. Enjoy it. They always say at the top of their posts how long the article will take to read. This one is four minutes!
