Heat is one of the most common pathogenic factors we see in the clinic every day. Many more people have heat than cold or yang deficiency. As heat is such a common pattern in practice, it is very important that we understand its etiology, pathology, diagnosis, patterns and treatment. One of the reasons for the widespread occurrence of heat is that emotional problems nearly always lead to heat in various forms. The discussion of heat syndromes is very ancient, having been discussed already in the Nei Jing. However, there is a lot of confusion on the nature and types of heat. Heat is often at the root of complicated modern diseases such as auto-immune diseases.
