There and (never?) back again:
Enclosed pathogenic factors
at the ABZ-Mitte, Offenbach
external pathogenic factors (epf) intrude the
body they always cause an imbalance and so they provide a base for
trigger it. If a person's qi is strong enough, those epf are pushed out
body again. If the person's qi is not strong enough, they may linger in
body in more or often less obvious forms.
The diagnostic challenge with those 'enclosed'
pathogenic factors is the fact, that for some time they may or may not
symptoms. Maybe the person just feels a little bit tired or less strong
focused than elsewhen, or even completely fine.
It may gradually cause chonic diseases to which the body slowly
therefore gets used to live unbalanced. But still those enclosed
factors disturb the physiological balance in the meridians and zang fu
organs). When the body's level of energy decreases, e.g. for age,
traveling, cold or an other disease the symptoms of these enclosed
factors show up.
The thesis is about the precondition how and why
external pathogenic factors can become enclosed pathogenic factors and
can be classified.
