TCM quiz on Phlegm, Qi, Blood and Dampness


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Swelling or deformities of the joints and Gall Bladder and Kidney Stones are signs of Phlegm

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Swelling or deformities of the joints and the presence of gall bladder and kidney stones are commonly associated with the accumulation of phlegm in the body. Phlegm is a thick, sticky substance that can build up in the body due to various factors such as poor diet, lack of exercise, and weak digestion. When phlegm accumulates, it can cause inflammation, swelling, and deformities in the joints. Additionally, the excess phlegm can crystallize and form stones in the gall bladder and kidneys, leading to pain and discomfort. Therefore, it is true that swelling or deformities of the joints and gall bladder and kidney stones are signs of phlegm.

    Correct Answer
    B. Heart
    Explanation
    Inappropriate laughter or crying, dull thinking, and manic behavior are all signs of Phlegm obstructing the Heart. The Heart is responsible for regulating emotions and mental processes, so when Phlegm obstructs it, these symptoms can occur.

While it is not directly mentioned in the question, the symptoms listed are consistent with the effects of Phlegm obstructing the Heart.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    SP 3, SP 9, and REN 12 are acupuncture points that are commonly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to tonify the Spleen and resolve Dampness. The Spleen is responsible for transforming and transporting nutrients in the body, and when it is weakened, it can lead to the accumulation of Dampness. By tonifying the Spleen, these points help to strengthen its function and promote the resolution of Dampness. Therefore, the statement that SP 3, SP 9, and REN 12 tonify the Spleen to resolve Damp is true.
