Frostbite

We all know what frostbite is. 

Have you seen frostbitten fingers or toes that become dark black in the worst case?  I guess that extreme cold turns into heat, as we learn from Yin and Yang transformation.  There is a similar example.  MIT succeeded in freezing water at boiling temperature.  Isn’t it interesting?

Here’s how to treat frostbite.  When you have toes affected, apply moxa cones on the area.  The area feels different from the normal area. Moxa helps circulation in the area.  When you feel normal on the affected area, please remember that the body remembers the wounds.  The different sensation in the area can be felt when the weather becomes cold.  Then, applying one or two cones would relieve you of the sensation.  This is from my personal experience.  I had seven or eight toes frostbitten about ten years ago. Some of them turned dark black.  All of them function well, except for slow growth in the affected toes.

One Korean famous doctor, Ilhoon Kim, recommended burning moxa cones on the dark black areas until they become scorched.  He seemed to take advantage of Yin and Yang transformation.  I did not have to try this far, fortunately.
