Dear Shmuel! In my country it's winter now, the temperature is from - 10 to -20 C. And a woman, 36 y.o. develops severe flegm-heat allergy during this season only, for several years. Acupuncture helps, but partially. You are lucky to live in a warm climate, but are there any ideas about this situation?
Lack of Qi and blood?

This is probably an external cold pathogen which might have turned hot. If this occurres only in the winter time, use points that release exterior conditions such as: Li-4/ Li-11/ G-20/ B-12/ Du-14 etc. Also, in such conditions, it is appropriate to use Guasha technique over the upper back.
