Assisting children requires flexibility and attentiveness to effectively address complex patterns of disharmony. The presenting complaints – referred to as the branch - are apparent or manifest, while the underlying pattern is called the root.
Open Air focuses on the branch while Deep Breath focuses on the root, the underlying pattern of deficiency. Open Air is primarily composed of herbs that disperse and purge stagnant Qi (energy) combined with a few that supplement deficiencies of Qi and moisture. Deep Breath, on the other hand, addresses patterns of deficiency and counters potential stagnation. Because of their complimentary approaches, Deep Breath and Open Air can be an ideal combination.
If your child is experiencing any of the following, your practitioner might recommend Deep Breath:
- Shortness of breath especially aggravated by physical activity, environmental irritants, fatigue, or exposure to cold air or wind
- Coughing or wheezing after eating foods that trigger mucus or congestion
- Discomfort of the chest and throat
There are certain circumstances requiring caution in determining if your child needs to go to the doctor’s office, however. If your child is experiencing any of the following, you should call your pediatrician:
- Extreme weakness, lethargy
- High fever (102° F or greater)
