It has been high temperature for three consecutive days. People are like roasting meat on the fire. Yesterday's rain did not dampen the temperature much. Instead, it will continue to be high temperature in the next three days, turning the earth into a steamer. People are waiting for Zongzi to be steamed. "Yang Qi, if the sky and the sun lose their place, it will shorten their lifespan but not bring out their vitality." In summer, Yang Qi grows and is abundant, not only in the natural world, but also in the human body. "Harmony between yin and yang can prevent all diseases. Therefore, in summer, whether it is the production of yang qi to suppress yin, or the excessive heat of the heart that requires nourishing yin and reducing fire, it is necessary to follow the path of nourishing the body to harmonize yin and yang within the body.".
Body dampness needs to be removed
There are six qi in heaven and earth, but invading the human body is called six evils, which can make people sick, and dampness is one of them. "Dampness enters the body, causing excessive yin qi and low yang qi in the body. People often experience symptoms such as headache, heaviness, depression, fatigue, chest tightness, and poor appetite.". Therefore, it is necessary to get rid of the moisture in the body for summer health care. Usually, you can eat more food with heat clearing and moisture relieving properties, such as mung bean Congee, lotus leaf Congee, etc. Winter melon is also a good food for heat clearing and moisture relieving.
Internal cold is suitable for nourishing yang
"Yang Qi is insufficient, and dampness and evil do not go away." If you do not nourish Yang in summer, eating more heat clearing and dampness promoting foods will not help. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that a strong Yang qi in the human body can resist the invasion of diseases. "Yang Qi is the essence of Yang Shen, and softness nourishes the essence." If Yang Qi is solid, then thieves and evil cannot harm. In summer, yang qi occurs on the surface of the body, often causing yin qi to linger in the body. In summer, weakness of the spleen and stomach, and poor appetite are caused by stomach cold. Therefore, in summer, you can often soak your feet in hot water to fix the yang, avoid eating cold foods such as ice cream, and eat fewer cold foods.
Proper living standards
Yang dominates discharge. In summer, excess yang should be naturally released to respond to the discharge of anger. Nowadays, men prefer to blow on electric fans and air conditioners to keep yang from leaking out of the body's surface. When cold evil seeps into the pores of the skin, it can damage yang inside, causing imbalance between yin and yang in the body. Slight sweating can bring out yang qi, and natural sweating is best. However, excessive sweating can harm the body. "Because sweat is the transformation of the essence, sweating too much and depleting the essence too severely can cause fatigue, weakness, palpitations, thirst, nausea, and coma.". Therefore, it is not advisable to sweat too much during summer sports, nor should it be exposed to the scorching sun.
Sleeping at night requires getting up early
"In the summer of March, one should lie down at night and get up early to keep one's mind calm." In the summer, the days are long and the nights are short. Many people sleep late and get up early, which can disrupt the biological clock and prevent the growth of yang qi. Therefore, in summer, one should lie down early and get up early, complying with the natural law of excess of yang and deficiency of yin, so as to maintain the balance of yin and yang in the body, prevent various diseases from occurring, and be energetic.
Ice and snow color in the heart
"Su Wen · Four Qi Regulates the Spirit" says, "Let the mind be free from anger, let the Chinese and English become beautiful, let the Qi be released. If the beloved is outside, this summer Qi should be the answer, and the way to grow up is also.". This indicates that in summer, one should be calm and calm, calm and calm, and not be violent or angry, in order to facilitate the outflow of qi. Therefore, it often brings ice and snow to the heart and cools it like a pool of water. As Ji Kang's theory of health preservation states, "It is more appropriate to regulate breathing and calm the mind, often like ice and snow in the heart, and the heat also diminishes in my heart. It is not allowed to turn heat into heat and regenerate heat.". Heart fire is yang, heart tranquility nourishes yin, and yin and yang coordinate to nourish the heart.
