Traditional Therapeutics - Rheumatoid Arthritis


Rheumatisms are generally owed to three types of Perverse Energies: Wind, Cold and Humidity. The Perverse Energies remain "stagnated" in the principal and secondary meridians, especially at the level of the muscles and bones.

There are three distinguishing types, according to the Causes:

  1. Wind origin--erratic pain. 
  2. Cold origin--stabbing pain.
  3. Humidity origin--localized pain.
