Cari amici,

ho pensato di proporre questo rapido abstrac, molto attuale (aprile 2015). Zhao jy et al spiegano l'importanza di FengFu già noto nelle antiche dinastie cinesi ed ad oggi molto usato per il suo ruolo specifico nei problemi di tensione cervicale, ma soprattutto come punto anti vento. Importante il suo ruolo quale fattore agopunto che inibisce l'entratadel  patogeno esterno, quindi quale fortificazione della wei qi dell'individuo. Wei qi sotto il controllo del polmone proprio in questo periodo autunnale, anche se in realtà quasi concluso,  in cui il polmone gioca un ruolo importantissimo.
