  5. Metabolize fluids in your head and chest. Puffy eyes? Heavy head or chest? Your lung yang needs support.
  6. Help you let go. Along with its paired organ, the large intestine, eliminates waste (both emotional and physical).
  7. Crave spicy foods when they’re weak.
  8. Dislike being dry or cold. You may like to go running in the winter… your lungs don’t love it though.
