Where would we be without our lungs? 

Horse BreathWhile everything is working, we may take them for granted.  But for those that suffer from any respiratory issue, you know how precious each breathe can be.

Our animals need their lungs in top condition as well. They can develop respiratory issues just like us when they are exposed to pollutants, dust, bacteria, or another animal with transferable viruses! Respiratory issues are NOT unique to humans.

The Lung Meridian is responsible for more than just respiratory issues. It also affects skin and body hair, chest pain, sweating issues and knee problems.  It has a peak energy time of 3-5 AM and is a Metal as well as a Yin Meridian (more on these concepts later.)

Some of the main points on the Lung (Lu) Meridian are:

Lung Horse 1Lu1 – located about a hands width behind the front of the chest of the horse.

This point is the Alarm Point for the Meridian and is good for cough, pain in the chest, shoulder and back, edema of the throat, and all lung conditions.

Lu 5 – located in the crook of the elbow on the lateral side of the biceps tendon of the human arm.

This point is the Sedation Point for the Meridian and is used for pain in the elbow, inflammation from the lungs or skin, pharyngitis and itchy skin.

Lu7 – located just above the inside edge of the styloid process of the radius on the forearm.

This is the Master Point for the Head and Neck and is used for the lungs and allergies.  This point is also the connecting point to the sister Meridian Large Intestine (LI)

Lung Meridian Human1LU9 – Located at the radial end of the knee crease, just above the accessory carpal bone on the horse.

This is the Influential Point for the blood vessels and is used for pain in the chest, cough, shoulder and back pain, tendonitis, laminitis and all vascular problems.  This is also the Tonification and Sedation point for this Meridian.

LU10 – On the thenar eminence of the hand, in a depression between the midpoint of the metacarpal shaft and the thenar muscles. At the base of the thumb.

Primary affects: Cough; expectoration of blood; sore throat; fever. Secondary affects: Loss of voice; dizziness and headache; pain in the chest and back; aversion to cold; body fever with sweating; dry throat.

Lu11 – located on the posterior medial aspect of the fore foot coronary band of the horse.

This is the Ting Point and is used for aliments of the foot, sore throat, respiratory failure, laminitis, pain in the lower leg and hoof and for nose bleeds.  This point is used for acute emergencies and will strengthen the immune system.

It’s exciting to learn how various ailments can be treated by each unique point!
