The Lung Meridian connects with the Large Intestine Meridian, with which it is externally-internally related. Based on the theories of Chinese medicine, the Lungs govern qi and manage respiration. In addition, the lungs are also responsible for regulating the water passages. Therefore, abnormalities of this meridian will result in lung-related diseases, such as edema and respiratory problems. Symptoms of fullness in the chest, cough, asthma, and shortness of breath show an abnormality of the lungs. Abnormality of circulation in the Lung Meridian will result in pain of shoulders, back, and arms, etc. The Lungs govern skin and hair. Therefore, the Lungs play an important role in the quality of the skin. Exterior evils, such as wind, often invade the lungs through the skin and hair, directly affecting the Lungs.
