Summer Diet Therapy

The solar term for the summer heat is around August 23 of the solar calendar each year, at which point the solar longitude is 150 degrees. The summer heat is the season when the summer heat is over. The word place means hiding and ending. As the name suggests, the summer heat indicates that the summer day is almost over.

Monthly Order of the Seventy-two Months: In mid-July, you can stop here, and the summer heat will stop here. At this time, the three-volt weather has passed or is nearing its end, so it is called the summer heat ends here. There are also proverbs in the country that the summer is coming, which means that the summer heat is gradually fading, but the weather has not yet fallen in the true sense. At this time, the heat in sunny afternoons is no less than that in summer and summer. This is people. Often said autumn tiger, poisonous as a tiger. This also reminds people that when there is still hot weather in autumn, this can also be regarded as the reflection of summer. Gu Tieqing, the author of Qing Jia Lu, described the summer at Chu: Since the customs are used to deal with the summer, the weather is still lingering, and it will begin to cool after about 18 days; Proverb: 18 summer basins, also called bathing for 18 days. It means sweating for about eighteen days. The three summer days are:

This means that by this solar term, the eagle had already hunted birds in large numbers and displayed food as a sacrifice; then everything in the heavens and the earth began to wither, and there was a killing atmosphere everywhere; in a few days, hoe, hoe, beams and other crops Began to mature.

From an agricultural perspective, there are more autumn harvest scenes of everywhere in the valley is yellow, and every field is busy with rice. In addition, the frequent autumn rain after the summer also frequents us.

Before and after the summer, China ’s Beijing, Taiyuan, Xian, Chengdu, and Guiyang areas east and south of the frontier and the Tarim Basin in Xinjiang still had an average daily temperature above 22 ° C, which was in summer, but the number of cold air southward increased and the temperature dropped gradually. obvious.

After the summer heat, except for South China and Southwest China, the rainy season is about to end in most parts of China, and precipitation is gradually decreasing. Especially in North China, Northeast China, and Northwest China, we must pay close attention to water storage and conservation to prevent drought during autumn so as to delay the planting of winter crops.

The summer heat in the place is at an alternating period from heat to cold. The yang in the natural world tends to converge from dredging, and the ups and downs of the yin and yang in the human body also change accordingly. At this time, the daily routine should be adjusted accordingly. The first thing you need to adjust to fall health is sleep time. The reason why autumn health is emphasized to ensure sleep time is because sleep has a good health effect. The medical book Ten Questions unearthed from Ma Wangdui said: The matter of husbands and wives who are not living as citizens is also listed, such as Liang, Goose, Su Shuang, Snake Tan (鳝), Yu Yuan, Yi (Cree). (Shall) Those who have been born with food have their stomachs lying on their backs … so they will not lie down for a hundred days. It can be seen that not only do people need sleep, no living thing is inseparable from sleep. That is to say, without normal sleep, normal life activities cannot be maintained well.

The theory of sleep in traditional Chinese medicine starts from the unity of materialism and form, and believes that sleep and awakeness are the unified functional state of yin and yang between human body , which is a normal physiological phenomenon. It includes several aspects

First, the change of day and night yin and yang determines the human body. Due to the movement of the celestial body, the natural world is in the process of change of yin and yang, which is represented by the alternate appearance of day and night, with day as yang and night as yin. The yin and yang of the human body also changes with the increase and decrease.  It can be said that since the existence of human beings, there has been a law of human activity-working at sunrise and dying at sunset. Lingshu? Camp Health Association said: The sun enters the yang and the yin suffers from discouragement. The middle of the night, the people are lying, and the life is said to be yin; Lingshu? Interrogation further explained this: At the middle of the night, Yang Qi is exhausted, and Yin Qi is full, then the eyes are stunned ; during the day, Yin Qi is exhausted and Yang is full of sacrifice, but then it is flattering.

2. The physiological basis of sleep is the operation of camp guards. The change of the persons trance is based on the operation of the human bodys qi (the qi is in the vein, which is rich in nutrition), and the qi (the qi is in the vein, which has a protective function). Health operations are most relevant. Lingshu? Wei Qi Xing Day: Therefore, a Qi trip, one day and one night for fifty weeks, day and night for twenty-five weeks in Yang, and night for twenty-five weeks in Yin. The Lingshu? Yingying Health Association also said the same: Wei Qi travels at 25 degrees of yin and 25 degrees of yang, and is divided into day and night. Therefore, the qi rises to the yang and ends at the yin. Getting up here means getting up, and stopping means falling asleep. It can be seen that when Wei Qi travels to Yin, Yang Qi is exhausted and Yin Qi is full, so it enters into a state of quietness (the human body enters a relatively static state and wants to sleep); when walking in Yang, Yin Qi is exhausted and Yang Qi is full, So it moves up and up (the human body enters into motion and wakes up). Therefore, the human bodys sleep and sobriety are directed by the mind, while the calmness is stunned, and the movement is stunned; if the emotion is too extreme, it is difficult.

I want to remind my old friends here that with the increase of age, the qi, blood, yin and yang of the elderly will be lost, and there will be less phenomenon of daytime and nighttime. The ancient health-preserving family said, Shao Xi is the major problem for the elderly. The Ancient and Modern Jiayan argues that the elderly should pillow when they feel sleepy, which is in line with the view of health-care. In addition, the ancients also emphasized the importance of noon sensation in sleep regimens (that is, people sleep at noon and noon every day). They believed that at noon, yin and yang intersect, is extremely prosperous and faint. Lying down, Yi Hou Qi Fu. Modern research has found that the function of all organs in the body is reduced to the lowest point from 0 to 4 at night; 12 to 13 at noon is the most fatigued time for the human sympathetic nerve. Statistics have shown that taking a nap in the elderly can reduce the incidence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Therefore, the meridian consciousness has the significance of disease prevention and health care, and it is also in keeping with health principles.
