Courses / Wei-defensive Qi: Modern Use Learned from the Shang Han Lun and Wen Bing
What is Net of Knowledge?


Wei Qi or defensive Qi runs around the blood vessel and Ying Qi or construction Qi inside the blood vessel. Wei protects the body from external pathogens, which functions like the immune system. Moreover, Wei is tightly related to the nervous system, which regulates temperature, sweating, circadian rhythm. Ying refers to blood and other Yin substances which nourish the whole body. In Shang Han Lun, a Taiyang exterior condition is regarded as Wei. Wei to treat a Wei disease. In Wen Bing (Warm Diseases), a Wei level condition refers to the early stage of fever due to warm pathogens e.g. coronavirus. The manifestation is various in wind-heat, damp heat, dryness, and wind-cold. What are the similarity and differences of Wei in the two systems? How can we use herbal medicine and acupuncture in practice to treat Wei disorders?
