Internal Collaterals are part of Fu organs, connected externally to limbs. The acupuncture main physiology function is delivering Qi and blood. Acupuncture can action Qi, making collaterals easy and smooth, supporting healthy Qi to eliminate pathogens:
1. Strengthening Qi is supporting healthy Qi, in order to improve the ability to fight diseases.
2. Dispelling pathogens is expelling mechanism of disease, remove the element that could affect and lead to diseases.
3. If Qi is healthy and energetic this will dispelling diseases, if it is weak, then disease is more likely.
