I believe everyone knows the "treatment of winter disease in summer", but few people know the principle of treatment of winter disease in summer.
Dongbing Xiazhi is a characteristic treatment in traditional Chinese medicine in China. It is based on the "spring and summer nourishing Yang" in "Suwen•Four Qi Regulating Spirit" and "Suwen•Six Zangxiang Theory" "Chang Xia Sheng Dong" in the "Chang Xia Sheng Dong" restraint relationship developed from the guiding ideology of TCM health preservation and treatment.
"Winter disease" is a disease that is prone to occur in winter. Most people who are prone to this type of disease have a deficiency-cold physique, which means there is no firepower as the saying goes.
The usual symptoms: cold hands and feet, chills and warmth, fear of wind and cold, tired and sleepyAnd so on, Chinese medicine calls it "deficiency of Yang Qi", that is, insufficient heat (energy), insufficient heat production, and cold internal generation.
Even in midsummer, people like this will cover thicker than others when they sleep, and wear more during the day. At this time, once the cold evil strikes, they are more likely to be injured by the cold evil, which will eventually cause the cold evil to penetrate into the body and develop stubborn symptoms such as cough and asthma.
Patients with winter sickness are inherently weak and cold. In addition, the winter environment is also a piece of ice, and there is no possibility of thawing if the two colds are caught. Therefore, curing cold in winter is like drying clothes in rainy weather, which is very difficult.
HoweverIn the midsummer, the outside world is hot and scorching, and the yang energy is in full swing. At this time, the accumulated cold hiding in the body can easily be driven out. However, if the body's Yang Qi is weak at this time and there is no driving force in it, it will miss the great opportunity to remove the cold.
Therefore, people with weak and cold constitutions should take good care of the body's Yang Qi in summer and eat more warm foods to increase the body's driving force and help expel the body's cold evil. "Eat radish in winter and ginger in summer" is also the reason.
