Spring rain shocks the spring and the valley is clear. The autumn is cold and the frosts fall, and the winter snow is snowy. This is the twenty-four solar terms summarized by the working people in ancient China in continuous practice. At first, they just noticed that the height of the sun was different at the same time in different climates. So they set up a bamboo pole on the ground and observed the length of the shadow of the bamboo pole. The shortest day at noon was the summer solstice . Take the bamboo pole. The day with the longest shadow was the winter solstice. Gradually they found that when the length of the day and night was equal in each of the spring and autumn seasons, they were set as the spring equinox and autumn equinox . Because the time between two and two was too long to meet production needs, Other solar terms have been formulated successively. In the Qin Dynasty, the beginning of spring, rain, beginning of summer, beginning of summer, beginning of autumn, season of su mmer, white dew, and frost fall. By the Han Dynasty, the twenty-four solar terms had all been determined and were in line with our present twenty-four solar terms. Exactly the same.
According to the theory of Chinese medicine, each of the 24 solar terms has a different health focus. Today is cold dew, the beginning of the season of alternating heat and cold. During this time, what should we pay attention to and which ones should we take selective? How about food to protect yourself?
Wu Hanlu ranked seventeen in the twenty-four solar terms, and the festival was held from October 8th to 9th each year. The history book records that Dong refers to Han Jia as a cold dew, and when it is cold and cold, it will condense, so it is called cold dew. The cold dew will condense too. Due to the arrival of cold dew, the climate changes from heat to cold, and everything follows the cold. Grow and gradually fall, this is the season when heat and cold alternate. In the natural world, the yin and yang qi begins to change, the yang qi fades away, and the yin qi gradually grows. Our physiological activities of the human body must also adapt to changes in nature to ensure the physiological (yin and yang) balance in the body.
The motherland medicine emphasized spring and summer yang, autumn and winter yin in the four seasons of health. Therefore, in the autumn season, care must be taken to maintain the yang in the body. When the climate becomes cold, it is the time when the body s yang is condensed and the yin essence is hidden inside. Therefore, it should be mainly to maintain the yin essence. That is to say, the fall health cannot leave the principle of nurture .
Since ancient autumn, Jin Qiu also, the lungs are gold in the five elements, so the lung Qi corresponds to Jin Qiu Qi, At the time of golden autumn, dry Qi is in command. At this time, Qi Xie Qi easily invades the human body and consumes the Yin essence of the lung. If care is not carried out properly, the body will experience a series of autumn dryness symptoms such as dry throat, dry nose, and dry skin. Therefore, in the late autumn season , the diet should be nourishing yin and moistening (lung). The ancients said: Dry autumn, eat hemp to moisturize. At this time, you should eat soft foods such as sesame, glutinous rice, japonica, honey, dairy products, and increase chicken, duck, beef, pork liver, fish, shrimp, Jujube, yam, etc. to increase physical fitness; eat less spicy products, such as pepper, ginger, shallots, garlic, etc. Due to excessive spicy food should hurt the yin essence. If you can, you can drink a few dates and lotus seeds and ginkgo porridge. Drink yam and horses hoe often.
Spiritual conditioning should not be ignored. As the weather is getting colder, the sun is decreasing, the wind is rising and the leaves are falling, it often causes a sense of desolation in some people s hearts, and there is a mood of instability and depression that is easy to be sad. Therefore, maintaining a good attitude, taking advantage of the situation, venting the feelings of depression, and cultivating an optimistic and open mind are one of the indispensable contents of health care.
In addition, when the autumn is cool, people s living time should be adjusted accordingly. I have found in many years of clinical diagnosis and treatment that every time the climate becomes cold, the number of patients suffering from cerebral thrombosis will increase. The analysis of the cause is related to the colder weather and the increase in people s sleep time, because when people sleep, their blood flow slows down. Easy to form blood clots. Su Wen Si Qi Qi Di Shen Dalun clearly states: Autumn and March, lie down early and get up early, with the chickens. Lying early to meet the collection of Yin essence; rise early to meet the yang Shuda, in order to avoid blood clots Formation, I suggest everyone to follow the solar terms, recuperate in time to ensure health.
