Approaching covid-19 as Damp Toxin


By Dr Jin Zhao

Approaching covid-19, I find familiarity with Wu Youke’s Wen Yi Lun (Discussion of Warm Epidemics) and Xue Xue’s Shi Re Bing Pian (Writings on Damp-Heat Pathogen Diseases) helpful, as well as a good grasp of concepts of internal damage and the ideas of Li Dongyuan and Wang Haogu. These covid-19 cases have aspects not only of cold, but also of dampness and toxin, so I diagnose the pathogen as damp toxin.
