The first method of health maintenance: do not eat dinner, "hungry" cure all diseases
Eating dinner is one of the causes of diseases, and it also induces many metabolic synthesis Symptoms such as diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, etc. and the reasons that make them unhealed for a long time. Both Chinese medicine and Buddhism say: "Don't eat after lunch."
The so-called "noon" is from 11 to 13 noon. After 13 o'clock, you can no longer eat. what do i do if I'm hungry? You can drink juice and eat fruit. Both Chinese medicine and Buddhism advocate not eating dinner, not to save food; but to maintain health.
As the saying goes: "A horse does not eat night grass and is not fat." By the same token, people who do not eat dinner will not be obese. Midsummer is here. If you want to seize the golden opportunity of summer, you can achieve better weight loss, fat reduction, and "three highs" effects.
Experts "painfully approve": dinner is inevitable, you should eat less
——Li Qizhong Professor of Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Three meals a day have been established since ancient times. From the perspective of modern nutrition, breakfast is eaten at 7 or 8 in the morning. Lunch at 11 or 12 at noon, dinner at 6 or 7 at night, this is based on people’s daily activitiesIntensity and long-term formation of eating rules, the time of three meals is exactly the time when the human body needs nutrition and energy the most.
The habit of eating three meals has been passed down for thousands of years and has been integrated into the genes of modern people. From the genetic point of view of modern people, it is indeed necessary to have three meals regularly, otherwise it will affect people's health.
The high incidence of hyperlipidemia, hyperglycemia, and high blood pressure in modern people has nothing to do with whether to eat dinner or not, but is more related to how to eat dinner.
Nowadays, dinner is often the richest meal of the three meals, while the amount of human activity at night is the lowest. After dinner, most of them sit on the sofa and watch TV and play WeChat, before going to sleep. In this way, if you eat more and eat well, but move less, people will get fat easily over time, and the symptoms of "three highs" will also appear.
So, for the three meals, what we need to adjust is not to change the three meals a dayHabit, but carefully adjust the quality and quantity of each meal. If you want to lose weight without hurting your body, there is still the old saying: eat well for breakfast, eat well for lunch, and eat less for dinner. Eating less does not mean not eating.
The second method of keeping in good health: keep in good health in hot weather, when drinking brown sugar and ginger tea
If you stay in an air-conditioned room for a long time, cold will accumulate in your body.
In addition, the body's yang qi tends to diffuse outward, and the body's yang qi is relatively insufficient compared to other periods.
Therefore, you need to drink some warm drinks to get rid of the cold in the body.
As the saying goes, "Eat radish in winter and ginger in summer, without a doctor's prescription." In summer, ginger and other foods should be used to dispel the cold. It is better to take ginger and brown sugar together.
Experts "painfully approve": brown sugar ginger tea, forbidden to drink for people with damp heat and yin deficiency
——Zhang Xiaotian Director and Chief Physician of the Treatment Center of Shuguang Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine
To discuss the health preservation effects of "hot ginger tea", we must first understand the dietary properties of ginger and brown sugar. From the perspective of Chinese medicine In other words, brown sugar is warm in nature, sweet in taste, enters the spleen, is beneficial to qi and blood, invigorates the spleen and warms the stomach, and slows downPain, activating blood circulation and removing stasis, etc.
Ginger is used for raw divergence, well used and medium. Since ancient times, hot ginger tea has been used by traditional Chinese medicine to "quench wind and dispel cold" and is mostly used for the initial onset of wind-cold and exogenous feelings, or to prevent the onset of the onset of mist and moisture. Folks also have the custom of drinking hot ginger tea to prevent colds immediately after being exposed to rain or wind and cold.
Summer "air-conditioning disease" should also be a disease caused by wind-cold and external pathogens. Cold pathogens may invade the skin or enter the meridians. Brown sugar ginger tea has a certain effect, but after all, the diet is mild and can only be used to prevent When the onset or disease begins, if the disease progresses, you need to seek medical treatment in time.
What needs to be reminded is that no diet or diet plan is suitable for everyone. It is necessary to distinguish the physique: brown sugar and ginger dietary warmth, yin deficiency, exact heat or Hot and humid constitution, such as red and swollen eyes, hemorrhoids, dry stool, carbuncle; bitter mouth, bad breath, sores on the mouth and tongue, etc.The shape is not suitable for consumption.
The third method of health preservation: You should sweat more in summer, and it is best not to turn on the air conditioner
Summer colds, fevers, frozen shoulders, cervical spondylosis, Most of them are the result of being in an air-conditioned room for a long time. Therefore, if you want to avoid getting sick in summer, the best way is to not use air conditioning.
Moreover, Chinese medicine believes that people should sweat more in summer. While sweating helps the body detoxify, it also improves the body’s ability to adapt to high temperatures. Like in ancient times, there was no air conditioner, and the ancients could not spend the summer safely. They rely more on themselves, and their hearts are calm and naturally cool.
Experts "painfully criticized": "Mind calm and naturally cool" must be based on time and place
——Li Qizhong, Professor of Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine
In summer, staying in an air-conditioned room for a long time is not good, but it is not wise to refuse air conditioning at all. The ancients were able to calm their minds naturally and cool down. The "scorching summer" of ancient times is not the same as today’s.
In ancient times, vegetation coverage was high, there were no tall buildings, no cars, and no air conditioning, and the heat island effect was far greaterIt is lower than it is now, so the ancient human body feels less hot than modern people. If the ancients are placed in today's urban heat island, it may be difficult for them to remain calm.
Actually, the air conditioner is the product of the progress of human civilization. Whether it is healthy or not depends on how we use it well. If the air conditioner is completely discarded because of some health disadvantages, or is unwilling to turn it on because of frugality, then in the case of extreme high temperatures, it will be life-threatening for some elderly and weak people.
In the summer news in recent years, reports of heatstroke and even heat sickness caused by the use of air conditioning are not uncommon. Therefore, in hot weather, if you experience symptoms such as profuse sweating, palpitation, chest tightness, dizziness, elevated body temperature, etc., you should turn on the air conditioner in time.
Of course, keeping the air conditioner on is not good for your health. It is recommended that you do not turn on the air conditioner in the room and go for a walk in the early morning or midnightOne hour, moderate sweating.
The fourth method of health preservation: eating cold dishes in summer should be accompanied by wine
In summer, cold dishes become the main meal on the table, hot and sour dishes, cold fungus, Cold tomato and three-wire cold salad, etc., refreshing and pleasant, very popular. From the perspective of Chinese medicine, eating cold dishes on empty mouth is not healthy.
An old Chinese doctor Gan Zuwang said that in ancient times, cold dishes must be served with wine. Both white wine and rice wine are warm things, accompanied by cold dishes, which just neutralize. Modern people eat cold dishes on empty mouth but it is not good for the stomach.
Experts "painfully criticized": put an end to the cold and avoid alcohol poisoning
——Zhang Xiaotian, director and chief physician of the disease treatment center of Shuguang Hospital affiliated to Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Ancient cold dishes with rice wine, white wine and other warm products are in line with traditional Chinese medicine diet. Combination of cold and heat, balanced diet, the original cold dishes have become suitable for everyone.
In addition, in ancient times, the sanitary conditions were not good, and the cold dishes were not cleaned up. It was easy to cause acute gastrointestinal diseases. Spirits had a certain sterilization and disinfection effect, and the custom of drinking cold dishes also had this reason. It’s just that drinking more white wine and rice wine hurts the liverIt damages the stomach, eliminates the coldness of cold dishes, but incurs alcohol poisoning, then the gain is not worth the loss.
People with damp heat and internal heat should not drink alcohol, and people with liver disease should not drink alcohol. Nowadays, when making cold dishes, you might as well add shredded pepper and minced garlic to the vegetables to reconcile the food. In the preparation, you must choose fresh and clean dishes. The processing process pays attention to hygiene and the disinfection of tableware.
