Due to unhealthy lifestyles and diet, more and more people have joined the army of fatty liver unknowingly. Fatty liver, as the name implies, refers to the pathological changes caused by excessive accumulation of fat in liver cells. The incidence is increasing year by year and tends to be younger. At present, there is no specific medicine for the prevention and treatment of fatty liver, so many people have begun to seek TCM treatment. In fact, there is no such thing as fatty liver in traditional Chinese medicine. According to its clinical manifestations, it is classified into categories such as “accumulation”, “accumulation”, and “turbidity of phlegm”. It is believed to be caused by discordance of the liver and spleen and internal obstruction of phlegm. Liver, spleen and kidney. In daily life, it can be “weight loss” by taking acupoint massage, ear acupoint pressing, scraping therapy, and bathing feet with Chinese medicine.
acupoint massage. The prevention and treatment of fatty liver is closely related to five acupoints: Zusanli, Fenglong, Zhongwan, Qihai, and Tianshu. Massage or acupuncture can be used to stimulate these acupoints to achieve the purpose of auxiliary treatment or prevention of fatty liver. The specific method is: point the thumb or index finger on the above acupuncture points, massage 100 to 200 times in a clockwise direction, with the degree of soreness or fever in the local area. The above-mentioned acupoints are treated for about 20 minutes each time, ten times as a course of treatment, once every other day. Generally, 1 to 3 courses of treatment are sufficient.
auricular point pressing. The auricle is called the “window of human health”. Take the acupuncture points corresponding to the spleen, stomach, liver, sympathetic, endocrine, triple burn, large intestine, etc. on the ears, and press them with tape with magnetic beads. Generally, 5~6 points are selected. Press acupuncture points for 3 to 5 minutes before meals, 5 to 6 times a day to make the auricle flush and heat. Remind everyone that this method takes acupoints unilaterally each time, alternately with both ears, changing once every 3 days, 5 times as a course of treatment, and the treatment lasts for 2 months.
Guasha. Use a scraping board with a smooth edge, dipped in cooking oil or water, to focus on the bladder meridian, governor channel, liver meridian, Ren channel and other meridians. The specific method of operation is to apply an appropriate amount of scraping oil to the area that needs to be scraped. The force should be gentle and not too heavy. It is better to get out of Gu Sha. If Sha does not occur, don’t force it. After the marks of the scraping site disappear, the second scraping can be performed, and 10 to 15 times is a course of treatment.
Foot bath with Chinese medicine. It has been clinically found that foot bathing with Chinese medicine is the most popular method. Choose the same amount of Codonopsis, Atractylodes, Poria, Tangerine Peel, Bupleurum, Safflower and other medicines, add water to soak for 10 minutes, decoct the juice, and let the foot bath for 20 to 30 minutes when the temperature is appropriate. Once a day, 30 times is a course of treatment.
