「The Disease Triangle」——Understanding the cause of disease
「The Disease Triangle」is made up of host, pathogen and environment. When one of the three factors is missing, the triangle is not complete, and no disease will occur.
From the external environment of the body, viruses like low temperature. Maintaining a relatively high temperature with low humidity, the virus would lose its activeness.
The Covid-19 pandemic is considered high in humidity. When the internal environment of the body is very humid, the host would caught on the disease easier. Hence, avoid eating food that are damp and hot in nature.
How to determine if someone’s immune system is dysregulated?
If one caught on cold very often, that’s immunity dysregulation.
Traditional Chinese Medicine perceives cold as two types. One is upper respiratory tract infection, with symptoms such as sore throat, fever, body aches, etc, which are signs of “low immunity”. Another type is allergies, such as sneezing, runny nose, and itchy nose. These are signs of “unstable immunity”. Be very careful with both of these.
