The realisation that the “tradition” of treating TB with moxa seems to have effectively actually died out with the practitioners who were still doing these treatments into the 1940’s has been a sobering one for us. It has also been one which we were reluctant to make. We have come to realise that the absence of living or working practitioners with actual experience treating this disease with moxa means that we have no alternative but to tread this path on our own in the sure knowledge that it has been trodden before, but less certain of its twist and turns than we had anticipated. One thing that we are surer of than ever, however, is that there is a certain urgent need for this path to be trodden.
