As soon as May entered, the weather became a little overwhelming, and some diseases followed. Due to the summer heat, sweating is more, the body loses more water, and the digestive function of the spleen and stomach is poor. At the same time , the hot weather affects people s appetite. In addition to paying attention to clean and light diet, it is also necessary to pay attention to supplement some nutrients.
The health expert Zhao Shili pointed out that people living in the environment with relative humidity of 45% to 65% feel the most comfortable and healthy, but the windy and rainy summer is often relatively dry, indoor humidity can not reach this level. If you feel your throat and nose dry after you wake up every morning, it s time to humidify the indoor air.
Headache, insomnia, irritability, restlessness … In the summer, many people feel unwell and want to adjust deliberately, but they are increasingly weak and depressed. Experts believe that this has to do with the tolerance of the heart.
世 Zhao Shili pointed out that in the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, man and nature are a unified whole, and the four seasons of nature in the natural world are related to the five internal organs functional activities.
Sense of heart corresponds to summer, which means that summer is the most prosperous heart, and remind people that at the turn of spring and summer, we must adapt to the changes in weather and focus on heart maintenance.
Modern medical research finds that people s psychology, emotions and body can be interconnected and affect each other through the nerve-endocrine-immune system. At this time, not only is the mood fluctuating, but the body s immune function is also relatively low. Living and diet are slightly inappropriate, and various diseases will occur. Especially in the elderly, it is not uncommon for myocardial ischemia, arrhythmia, and elevated blood pressure. Therefore, in the Lixia season, we must do a good job of self-regulation and laughter.
Zhao Shili pointed out that eating more dilute food is an important method of diet and health in summer. For example, eating porridge during meals in the morning and evening, and drinking soup at lunch, can not only thirst and quench thirst, cool off the heat, but also nourish the body. Add some lotus leaves when cooking porridge, called lotus leaf porridge, tastes fragrant, slightly bitter in the porridge, can awake the spleen and appetite, has the effect of digesting summer heat, nourishing the stomach, clearing the intestines, and quenching thirst. Add some mung beans or use mung bean to make soup when cooking porridge, which can relieve heat and quench thirst, clear heat and detoxify, and promote diuresis and diuresis.
At the same time, we should also pay attention to supplement some nutrients: 1, supplement adequate vitamins, such as eating more fresh fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes, green peppers, winter melon, watermelon, bayberry, melon, peach, plum, etc .; 2. supplement water and inorganic salts, especially Pay attention to potassium supplements. Beans or soy products, mushrooms, fruits, vegetables, etc. are all good sources of potassium. Eat more hot and humid foods, such as watermelon, bitter gourd , peach, black plum, strawberry, tomato, cucumber, mung bean, etc., have a good summer heat relief effect; 3. Supplement protein, such as fish, lean meat, eggs, milk And beans are the best quality proteins.
As the weather heats up, people like to eat fruits, drinks, etc. just taken out of the refrigerator. Some people, especially children with weak gastrointestinal function, are most prone to severe abdominal pain about half an hour after eating, and severe symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, diarrhea, and systemic cold war may occur.
Experts point out that this kind of spastic abdominal pain is caused by eating food stored in the refrigerator. The gastrointestinal temperature of a person is generally around 36 ° C, and the food just taken out of the refrigerator is only 2 ° C to 8 ° C. After the stomach and the stomach are strongly stimulated by low temperature, the physiological function is disturbed. The simple prevention method is not to eat food taken out of the refrigerator in a hurry, and eat it for a while, and do not eat too much at a time, especially the elderly, children and people with chronic gastritis and indigestion should pay more attention.
Because early summer dawns early and people get up early, and relatively late at night, it is easy to cause insufficient sleep, so it is necessary to increase lunch break. At noon in summer, the temperature is highest from 1 to 3, and people are prone to sweating. After lunch, the blood supply to the digestive tract increases and the blood supply to the brain decreases. Therefore, people are always dizzy and drowsy at noon.
For office workers who cannot take a lunch break at noon, they can listen to music or close their eyes for 30 to 50 minutes at noon. Zhao Shili believes that the time for siesta varies from person to person, generally half an hour to one hour is appropriate, and the time is too long to make people feel lack of energy. Don t be greedy when you sleep, avoid sleeping at the wind vent, in case you get sick from the cold and wind.
