Blood Heat, as well as being quite a nuisance itself, causes other syndromes too.
What's the background for this?
First, to see what is meant by Blood, click here. As you'll read, Blood is the basis for our consciousness, meaning that, in Chinese medicine theory, where who you think you are resides is in your Blood.
If someone has a major haemorrhage, or a terrible accident that puts him into shock, his Blood is severely exhausted and disturbed, and you may see his personality literally 'going to pieces'.
Conversely, if your personality is very disturbed, as described below, your Blood can be deranged. That derangement takes various forms, one of which is commonly Blood-Heat.
Normally the Blood nourishes your body. It carries away unwanted matter, replacing it with new, healthier tissues. So far, so good, and much the same goes for the Western concept of blood.
When, however, something heats Blood, it tries to lose that Heat.
The most efficient way that your body clears Heat is by perspiration through your skin. With Blood Heat, however, this process is stymied and instead your body has to clear or contain Heat in other ways.
Those other ways include through
Any one of the following could cause Blood Heat, if strong enough.
But often they get together, and you don't notice symptoms until a number of the causes have been going on concurrently for a while.
It may then be hard to disentangle any single cause.
In one sense, the cause is because, in Chinese medicine, the Heart may not be controlling the Blood, and the Spleen not keeping it in place.
Then you get a mixture of possible causes, including mental stress and dietary mistakes.
Heat is potentially a serious problem, in Chinese medicine. We all get it from time to time, and our bodies naturally clear it out within a few days, but what happens if it has become chronic, and your body doesn't know what to do?

All the books in the 'Chinese Medicine in English' series should be fully accessible on Kindles and Kindle apps. (Or you can buy the softback print editions, of course.)
('Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine' published 1986, was never available in a Kindle version.)
If, having read one of my books you can write a review - preferably positive - that would help others decide whether to read it.
You can put your review on Amazon or, on this site, here.
And if you think it was terrible?
Well, let me know so I can improve it for the next person. (Ideally let me know before cursing it in public!)
Here are some of the books I (Jonathan) have written.
Subscribers to Kindle Unlimited can borrow the first four for 'free'.
Published 1986 and, amazingly, still selling. Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine was apparently used back then by at least one acupuncture college to help students understand Chinese medicine! See Reviews.
Seven Reviews so far for Yuck Phlegm. (Despite the lurid cover, it explains the five main types of phlegm and what works best for each type. I hope it's easy to read and will be much more useful than all the websites on the subject.)
3000 years of Chinese being stressed, and at last, here's a book showing how all that experience can help you!
By the author of this website, it explains in simple English how to use stress to improve and enhance your life.
NB You can also order 'Qi Stagnation - Signs of Stress' from your bookseller.
