Lichun is the first of the twenty-four solar terms and the beginning of spring. Because spring belongs to the wood and corresponds to the liver, spring health is mainly to protect the liver and regulate mood. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that being in a good mood can not only prevent the liver from becoming hot, but also be conducive to the growth of yang. Therefore, the citizens should be vigilant against anger, even more depressed, and open-minded, optimistic, and maintain a good state of mind.
From the perspective of solar terms, although the beginning of spring is the beginning of spring, in Guangdong, this season is still very cold, and health care should be carried out in accordance with the actual conditions of the region and climate. From the perspective of climate change in previous years, for a period of time after the beginning of spring, the weather was still warm and cold, and the climate change was still large. At this time, the human body also begins to become loose with the arrival of spring, and its resistance to cold evil has weakened. Therefore, it is not appropriate to reduce cotton clothing prematurely in the early spring.
Spring cover autumn freeze is a folk health proverb. With the withering of winter and March grasses and frozen insects, the metabolism of the human body slows down, resistance is reduced, it is easy to get sick, it is also easy to damage yang, and it is slightly affected by wind and cold. If you sweat at this time, you should wipe it off in time, don t open your mind and let the wind blow. Appropriate coverage in spring can reduce the incidence of diseases, especially common respiratory infections.
In addition, Li Chun health should also pay attention to health care and disease prevention. Because the climatic characteristics after the beginning of spring are mainly based on wind and atmosphere, wind evil can be a pathogenic factor alone, and it is often combined with other evil atmospheres. Especially in the early spring, the weather changes from cold to warm., Warm and poisonous evils have also become active, and various pathogenic bacteria and viruses have grown and reproduced. Influenza, measles, scarlet fever, and pneumonia, as mentioned in modern medicine, also occur and spread.
In addition, due to the wide range of lesions, the number of wind and good deeds is variable, the changes are uncertain, the channels are up and down, and the forehead can be reached directly, and the waist and knees can be violated. In addition, if the wind wins, the limbs behave abnormally, such as convulsions., Spasms, tremors, angled bows, neck rigidity, etc. are often blamed on wind evils.
In order to avoid the occurrence of diseases in the spring, preventive measures must first be taken to change or change clothes in response to climate change; secondly, windows must be constantly opened to allow indoor air to circulate and keep the air fresh; thirdly, it is necessary to pay attention to rest and strengthen exercise to improve the body s defense ability. In addition, pay attention to mouth and nose health. In terms of living, we must also conform to nature, go to bed early and get up early, and increase outdoor activities appropriately, so that the body s winter Tibetan state begins to adapt to the arrival of spring, so that our own mental and emotional tunes with nature, and strive to be physically and mentally harmonious and energetic.
When the Hunchun is full of vitality, various tissues and organs of the human body are active and require a large amount of nutrients to supply the body with activities and growth and development needs. However, the climate started to warm in spring, the air was dry, and the human body diverged. Therefore, you should eat more juicy fruits and vegetables, such as tomatoes and radishes, to supplement your body s moisture. However, it is also necessary to consider the birth of yang in the spring. It is advisable to eat the products of Xingan divergence, and not to eat foods with more acid, such as oranges, tangerines, grapefruits, apricots, papaya, coriander, hawthorn, olives, lemons, pomegranates, black plums, etc. In the relationship between the five internal organs and the five flavors, the sour taste enters the liver and has astringent properties, which is not conducive to the development of yang qi and the drainage of liver qi.
In winter, many citizens like to eat dog meat and mutton to warm their bodies, but after the spring, the weather is warmer, the climate is dry, and it is easy to get angry. Dog meat and mutton are warm foods. If you eat more in spring, it is easy to crash with the climate. The explanation of traditional Chinese medicine is that in the spring, the yang qi first rose, the weather changed from cold to warm, and all things sprout. The yang qi of the human body rose, the liver was drained, the qi and blood tended to the surface, and the human body s metabolism was most active. After the long-term tonic in the human body and the fat and sweet food of the first month, the human stomach has a heavy accumulation, so it is not advisable to eat greasy and spicy things to prevent the Yang from leaking.
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that special attention should be paid to the maintenance of the liver in spring in order to adapt to the time of day. Therefore, it is necessary to take into account that spring is the characteristic of rising yang in the diet, and it is suitable to eat more foods with Xingan divergent properties. Such as rapeseed, coriander, leek, onion, mustard, white radish, artemisia, kohlrabi, fennel, cabbage, celery, spinach, etc. have the characteristics of Xingan divergence.
After the spring, as the temperature rises, people should gradually increase the time of outdoor activities to speed up blood circulation and promote qi and blood operation. However, since the weather is warm and cold after the beginning of spring, it is more suitable for gentle rhythmic sports, such as spring outing, kite flying, walking, jogging, Tai Chi, and non-violent ball games.
Citizen While walking, citizens can do lung rub exercises. Since the pores of the human body gradually open after the beginning of spring, the wind and the cold are the easiest to enter and cause colds and colds. Regular exercise of the lung meridian can improve the skin s ability to resist the cold. The lung meridian is on the inner side of our arm, it passes through the shoulder socket and starts to extend down to the thumb, so taking acupuncture points at the upper and lower ends of it will have a good effect, and these two points are easier to find, one is at the shoulder socket In Zhongfu, the other is the Shao Shang acupoint of the thumb. Every morning, I get up every morning with half a fist and knock a hundred times.
It should be noted that exercise should not be intense during this season, it is not suitable for sweating and panting, otherwise it may consume Yang Qi and be detrimental to health. And because the climate is still dry after the beginning of spring, it is necessary to replenish water during exercise.
