"rom Chinese thinking, the respiratory system is like an "umbrella" at the top of the body, providing a protective cover for the rest of the body. The lungs interface with the world outside our body, and as our first organ of contact, the lungs also play a vital role in screening what the Chinese call "external pernicious influences" (EPI's), such as viruses, bacteria, and the ravages of wind, damp, and cold."
