What's good for Xiao Fujie?
May 21, 2019
Today is Xiao Man. Xiao Satisfaction means the arrival of real summer. What is good for your health? What should you pay attention to in this Xiao Man Festival? Let me see below.
During the small full season, the temperature has increased significantly, and most areas of China have entered summer. As the temperature rises, the rainwater also increases gradually. As the folk saying goes, "Xiao Man Xiao Man, Jiang Man River Man." After the rain, the temperature will drop sharply, so we should pay attention to adding and reducing clothes in case of catching cold.
It's hot and rainy in small full season. In this environment of high temperature, high humidity and humidity, the human body feels hot and humid, but it can't keep the balance of heat through water evaporation. This guarantee of temperature regulation will lead to a series of uncomfortable symptoms such as chest tightness, palpitation, depression and general fatigue.
Traditional Chinese medicine calls high temperature and high humidity which have negative effects on people's health as "heat evil" and "warming evil". It calls Yin-yang, Qi-blood and viscera functional activities of the human body as "Zhengqi". Both heat evil and dampness evil can harm people's health. When "evil spirit" is full of righteousness, people will get sick. Small full solar term diet should be light, so as to facilitate digestion. Mung bean porridge, lotus leaf porridge, red bean porridge and so on should be eaten to remove the evil of dampness and heat from the body.
It is worth noting that in rainy days, we should avoid rain in time. It is when people do not pay attention that dampness evil invades the human body. If you wade in the rain, you should change into dry clothes and drink ginger syrup in time when you go home. If you feel heavy and hot, you should take Huoxiang Zhengqi pills and other medicines. In addition, after the clothes are sweaty, they should take a bath and change clothes in time. At ordinary times, they should be kept dry. After the rain, we must air our clothes and quilts in order to prevent dampness and mildew.
In short, the humidity is very heavy during the full season. We should try our best to avoid being in a humid environment, so that we can not be attacked by damp evil and ensure our health.
After the small full solar terms, diseases are more prone to occur. It is suggested that people should have the awareness of "prevention before illness" and eat some food:
Frequently eat food with the function of clearing away damp and heat, such as red beans, Coix seed, mung beans, winter melon, luffa, cucumber, cauliflower, water celery, water chestnut, black fungus, lotus root, carrot, tomato, watermelon, yam, snake meat, crucian carp, grass carp, duck meat and so on; avoid eating sorghum thick taste, sweet and fat, wet food, such as animal fat, sea fish, sour and pungent, sexual genus. Warm and hot products and fried and smoked products, such as raw onion, raw garlic, ginger, mustard, pepper, chili, fennel, cinnamon, leek, eggplant, mushrooms, sea fish, shrimp, crab seafood hair, cattle, sheep, dogs, goose meat and so on.
In the small full season, everything is flourishing and growing most vigorously. The physiological activities of the human body are also in the most vigorous period. The nutrients consumed are the most in the 24 solar terms of the four seasons. Therefore, timely and appropriate supplements should be made in order to keep the five Zang-organs of the body from being damaged. This * * * soup is also very important, suitable for mung bean sprout clam soup, bitter gourd, kapok beef soup, yam chick bean, Chieh qua pig moon soup, shepherd's purse ginger fish head soup, Hu Jiaoli's old chicken Belly Pig soup, American ginseng red dates fish soup, thousand jin chicken feet soup, etc. These soup products have the effects of clearing away heat, nourishing Yin, eliminating dampness, warming stomach and warming up.
