A ‘syndrome’ is a medical term. It describes symptoms that often happen together. These symptoms are linked to a certain disease. But having a syndrome does not always mean you have that disease. It’s like a clue for doctors.

In Chinese medicine, the idea is similar. A syndrome is called ‘Zheng’ in Chinese. It’s a pattern of symptoms that a patient has. It’s also based on what a doctor can see and feel. This pattern helps the doctor understand the body’s balance. It helps them choose the best treatment.

Here’s a key point. One disease can have many syndromes. Also, one syndrome can come from different diseases. It depends on the person’s body.
