I have Hashimoto's Disease, an autoimmune hypothyroid condition, which I am treating both with Western and Chinese medicine. I have damp heat and a kidney yin deficiency - I'm going on two years of acupuncture/herbs and it has significantly lowered the severity of my symptoms. After being on Liuwei wan for a while strengthened my pulse, I started experiencing lots of heat symptoms (e.g. rashes, feeling hot, dry mouth, etc.) and my pulse weakened.
My acupuncturist put me on long dan xie gan wan to clear the heat, which intensified my symptoms - I had migrains, muscle pain, etc - for a couple of weeks, before it subsided and my pulse got stronger. Now, after a couple of weeks without feeling lots of heat, the heat symptoms have returned.
My understanding is that I have a lot of heat that needs to leave my body, and that, while uncomfortable, it will be good for me in the long run.
I practice qigong, and have recently been doing a 5 Elements Qigong form that focuses on each of the elements in turn.
Is there a qigong form that specifically focuses on expelling heat and/or dampness? I know how to focus on tonifying the specific organs involved, but I'm looking for something that would help me flush the heat out of my body as thoroughly as possible.
