of imbalanced humours
Once any of the three humors becomes imbalanced, it moves into the three pathways. These are the three major routes that the humors will move through as the disease becomes progressively more severe. An imbalance will start in the first (the inner pathway), move to the second (the outer pathway), then come to rest in the middle pathway.
The inner path relates to the intestinal tract. It is the easiest to cure and the starting place for the majority of disease. The outer path relates to the skin, blood, and lymphatic, and is more difficult to treat than the inner path. Lastly, we have the middle path, because it is in between the inner and the outer paths. When disease reaches here - the level of inner and the outer paths. When disease reaches here - the level of inner tissues, bone, marrow, and muscles - it is the hardest to cure. In other words, the illness will start in the intestinal tract, move via the blood to the skin and lymph glands, and then finally work its way into the muscles and bones. Severe disease involve all the pathways and all the humors.
