COMMENTARY
According to the Classic of Difficulties
19
jing-river points
are indicated for cough and dyspnoea, chills and fever.
Jingqu LU-8, the jing-river point of the Lung channel, is
primarily indicated for excess type cough, dyspnoea and
wheezing with fullness and pain of the chest and upper
back, and for febrile disease with absence of sweating.
An unusual indication for Jingqu LU-8 found in the
Classic of Supplementing Life with Acupuncture and Moxi-
bustion is pain in the region of Yongquan KID-1. Pain in
the sole is usually due either to deficiency of the Kidneys
or to phlegm and dampness pouring downwards.
It should be emphasised, however, that in modern
clinical practice Jingqu LU-8 is infrequently used.
COMBINATIONS
Tension of the chest and back with a swollen sensa-
tion of the chest: Jingqu LU-8 and Qiuxu GB-40
(Thousand Ducat Formulas).
Febrile disease with absence of sweating: Jingqu
LU-8 and Dadu SP-2 (One Hundred Symptoms).
