Cramps in the extremities with cold feeling

When you have cramps in the extremities with cold feeling, abdominal pain and inability to eat meal due to irritability, apply 2 x 7 moxa cones at the following acupuncture points.

ST44, LU7, GB44, BL67 and BL57, and use LI4 and LV3.

Also, when cramps happen in the inner side of the leg, apply 1 moxa cone on the prominence of the medial malleolus. When the cramps happen in the outside of the leg, apply 1 moxa cone on the prominence of the lateral malleolus.

Vomiting phlegm with cold extremities

When you vomit phlegm with cold extremities, abdominal cramps and inability to eat food due to irritability, measure elbow circumference with a string and cut it where the other end of the string touches each other.

Men should use the left elbow, while women use the right. Place one end of the string on the prominence of acupuncture point DU14 and the other end down along the vertebrae, and mark the point where the other end of the string touches on the vertebra. Apply 50 moxa cones on the point.
