Damp heat  濕熱  (in English and Chinese 中英文)

 

by: Joe Hing Kwok Chu  按此看中文

 

Damp-heat is a term used in traditional Chinese medicine referring to symptoms of viral, bacterial or yeast infections, especially in the urinary tracts, bowels, gall bladders, vaginal and liver area. The term damp heat does not refer to dampness and heat. It is use as a single term damp-heat. It has nothing to do with dampness or heat. Most patients show slippery, thin and weak pulse, yellow urine, tongue with yellow coating or white coated tongue.

 

Although damp heat is a term referring to infection, a classical literature , "Diagnostics of Damp Heat" by Xue Sheng-bai classifies the infection condition into "dampness heavy" or "heat heavy". In dampness-heavy condition the tongue is coated with white oily substance while in heat-heavy condition the tongue is coated with yellow or thick oily or brown substance.

 

Bacterial infection often shows yellow coating on the tongue which denotes that the infection has been going on. The white coatings that can be washed away often are caused by Candida (yeast) infection. If there is a fever the pulse rate is higher. Usually every degree increase in body temperature will increase 10 counts of heart rate.

濕熱

 

濕熱患者幾乎都有尿黃、脈濡或滑,舌苔白或黃膩之症狀﹐如有發熱則脈較快數。一般上,體溫每增加一度,脈搏增加十 搏。

 

濕熱並不是指濕與熱。濕熱是指感染,如病毒,细菌 或霉菌感染,尤其是尿道,大腸,胆囊,陰道與肝臟部位。但按辨證法中有分濕重或熱重現象。若 濕重者,苔 多白腻或厚白腻;熱重者,苔多黄腻或厚黄腻,或黄 褐如 咖啡色。薛生白《濕熱條辨》根據舌 根白, 舌尖紅,認為濕漸漸化熱而餘濕猶滞;舌白、舌遍體白,為濕濁 極盛 之象,黃苔之形成可 能是因為細菌感染已經有一段時日。黄苔一般是與细菌戰鬪後死亡的白血球壓積的尸體。白苔(指 能洗脫的白苔)之 形成 可能是念珠球菌之感染

濡脈﹕極軟而浮細,按之似無,舉之有 餘,如帛衣在水中,輕 手與肌肉相得而軟,是浮小而軟。

滑脈﹕往來流利,如珠走盤,應指圓滑。
