Cancer syndromes are mostly qi stagnation and blood stasis

Feng Li, director of the Oncology Department of Wangjing Hospital of the Chinese Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, said in a guest interview on the 16th that Chinese medicine has a long history of understanding tumors. As early as the Zhou Dynasty, some characteristics of malignant tumors were recognized.

The narrative of “cancer” was first seen in the “Book of Weiji” in the Song Dynasty; “Six sensuality of external feelings (wind, cold, heat, wetness, dryness, fire), internal feelings of seven emotions (happy, angry, worry, thought, sadness,Fear, shock), eating fatigue, etc. cause imbalance of yin and yang, imbalance of internal organs, qi stagnation, phlegm drinking, blood stasis, etc., stagnate in the human body, forming accumulation, tumor (stay), cancer (rock).

Recognizing that “cancers, the heights are high, the depths are deep, the shape of rock caves, and the poisonous roots are deep.

“Director Feng said:” Western medicine believes that malignant tumors are caused by abnormal mutations in the body’s genes and immune imbalances, which lead to abnormal proliferation of tissue cells.

Malignant tumors are characterized by erosion and distant metastasis.

Chinese medicine and our modern western medicine have many of the same mechanisms in cancer awareness, but they are not expressed in the same way.

Director Feng Feng also introduced that Chinese medicine believes that one of the reasons for the formation of tumors is external, internal, and a non-internal and external cause in between.

The external causes are mainly wind, cold, summer, wetness, dryness, and fire. The internal causes are mainly internal emotional factors such as joy, anger, worry, thought, sadness, fear, and shock.

There are also internal and external causes between the two, certain diets, fatigue, and so on.

  Chinese medicine pays attention to holism, which is a whole, and the body and the outside are also a whole. Due to the above reasons, the imbalance of yin and yang in the body is the imbalance of matter and function, which will produce some pathological products, and thus stagnation and blood stasis.Phlegm drinking can cause cancerous changes over time. In ancient times, it was called “Ji”, or “Rock”. It also recognizes some characteristics of cancer, such as bumps like rocks and corrosive.
