So is lung mostly an indulgence in distraction brought on by chi not flowing correctly in the body and causing emotional excitation issues and distractions?

No, not at all. It is a disfunction the element of air in the body.

Well what does it result in? I ask because Tsoknyi Rinpoche was excerpted recently and I read the entire question and answer series from the document that the excerpt came from and he says that Westerners have lung too high in the body and it needs to be brought down to just below the navel (the dan tien in Taoism/taiqi) and that as a result of lung Westerner's seem to be excitable and easily distracted but actually he's talking to people who already seem to know what the symptoms are so he doesn't go into that too much. He did the same thing in a video.

These are the general symptoms of a vata disorder:


    wishes to move, sighing, instability in the mind; dizziness; roaring the ears; dry, red rough tongue; inclination for bitter tastes; shifting pains; cold and shivering; trembling and pervasive twinges5; fatigue; stiffness; atrophy; chapping, feeling breaks, bulging, constricted; great pain when trembling; prickling; goosebumps; insomnia; yawning, shivering; wishing to stretch; aimless chatter; feeling of having been beaten on hips, waist, bones, and all the joints; twinge and pain in the occipital notch, the chest and the jaw; the vata points become sensitive and are painful when pressed; dry heaves; in the morning, bubbly sputum; bloating, roaring, pain after digesting in the morning.

The reason he says it needs to be brought below the navel is that the natural location of vata in the body is in the pelvic region.
