Therefore, people with weak spleen and stomach should eat more yam, jujube, lotus seed porridge in the spring to control excessive liver gas, prevent chronic stomach disease and bloating caused by chronic hepatitis Aggravation of symptoms.
Say goodbye to the big cold and enter the beginning of spring. Tonic should be appropriately reduced. You can eat more warm foods such as green onions, ginger, garlic, glutinous rice, and carrots in accordance with the changes in the season.
In the spring, the climate changes rapidly, the air is sometimes dry and cold, the gastrointestinal tract is in a sensitive state, and there is often no appetite. At this time should eat more sweet food. Note that the sweetness and sweetness are not exactly the same. The so-called sweet food not only means that the food tastes a bit sweet, but more importantly it has the effect of nourishing the spleen and stomach. Eating more sweet foods can benefit the body s spleen and stomach.
Jujube and Chinese yam are the first to be eaten in sweet foods, and eating these two things can help improve the body s immunity.

After the spring, eat less spicy food and fried and grilled food. In the early spring, the resistance of the human respiratory system decreased.

Spicy food stimulated the respiratory tract and consumed yang, causing a fire and becoming more susceptible to viruses.
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the spring corresponds to the liver in the five internal organs, which is prone to liver qi. The sour taste is easy to enter the liver, and it has astringent properties. Eating more is not conducive to the development of yang and liver Qi, but it makes the already strong liver qi stronger and hurts the spleen and stomach. Acidic foods such as tomatoes, citrus, lemon, black plum, etc. should not be eaten more.
