So far we have talked about how internal heat can damage your body and the types of symptoms to look for to show that your body is overheating. In this last part of the series, I will tell you some of the things you can do to reduce the levels of heat, and to bring your body and mind back into a more harmonious and healthy state.
Firstly let’s look at three of the most common ways which lead to the body overheating and causing problems on the inside; in areas like the brain, organs and tissues …

In this update you will find a list of common symptoms and ailments that are
usually evolved from an overall pattern of excessive heat inside the organs and

When you are dealing with a body that has become out of balance, then do remember that it is unlikely you would get all of these symptoms. You may just have a few of them.
Many of these symptoms may also come from causes other than excessive internal heat. So to establish if they are likely to have been caused by heat, look for multiple signs of your system generally overheating.

The problem with this is that even when it is successful at eliminating symptoms, the underlying weakness or agitation which allowed the illness to manifest, can often just cause a new problem to spring up in a different location. You might fix one problem but the state in the body which caused it has been allowed to remain and fester.
For example, we could take the case of a cancer having been treated by surgery, chemo and radiotherapy. If the patient survives these intense treatments and the cancerous cells have been removed, then this is deemed a success, a “cure” by Western Medicine. From an Eastern perspective you have not addressed the vitally important question of what caused the cancer in the first place. If you do not address the causes of the cancer, then even if you have eradicated the mutated cells, the patient is still left vulnerable to a re-occurrence of it at a future stage in their life.
