I am a medical worker and have passed the retirement age, but the hospital leaders have repeatedly kept me. In addition to considering my medical skills and ethics, it is also because I have a healthy body and a clear mind. My experience of keeping in good health is: I have a comb in my hand, and I have health.
1. To be physically and mentally healthy, you need to start from the “head” As early as the Sui Dynasty, the famous doctor Chao Yuanfang clearly pointed out that combing the hair has the effect of smoothing blood vessels, expelling wind and dampness, and making hair not white. Su Dongpo, a great writer in the Song Dynasty, also had a deep understanding of combing hair to promote sleep. He once said: “Comb hair more than a hundred, spread out, sleep until dawn.” Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the meridians are all over the body, the upper and lower parts of the human body, the upper and lower parts of the body, the interconnection of the viscera The reconciliation of blood depends on the conduction of these meridians.
Modern medical research shows that the head is where the five senses and central nervous system are located. Frequent combing of the hair can strengthen the friction and stimulation of the head and face, dredge blood vessels, improve blood circulation in the head, and nourish the hair. Black hair is moisturized, and the roots are firm. Prevents hair loss; can also improve ears and eyesight, relieve headaches, and prevent colds; can promote blood supply to the brain and cranial nerves, help lower blood pressure, prevent cerebral hemorrhage and other diseases; can invigorate the brain, relieve fatigue, and prevent brain aging , Delay the brain aging, help the recovery of stroke sequelae.
In addition, combing hair is good for mental health. The uncombed hair and the unwashed face are unkempt and unkempt, which gives people the feeling of frizz and psychological disharmony; the combed hair is smooth and beautiful, and it gives people the feeling of being ironed and organized, stable and peaceful, and also In other words, comb your hair to create a “good mood”. Therefore, to be healthy physically and mentally, we need to start from the “scratch”.
2. Combing your hair regularly, keeping your mind and body healthy. There are so many benefits of combing your hair. Each of us must not only develop the good habit of combing our hair every day, but also have a certain pattern. The ancients’ method of “three combs a day” is worth learning.
After getting up in the morning and washing, use 10 minutes to comb your hair. Back and forth, comb forward and backward, from forehead to neck “comb” without leaking; from light to heavy, from slow to fast, eyes are slightly closed, calm mind, not thinking about other things, concentrate on combing. Stimulate the scalp and acupuncture points, the scalp will feel slightly numb and painful, and will feel relaxed and comfortable. After combing the hair, bathe the face with both hands, pull the ears and grasp the neck, so that the blood flow of the whole head is unblocked.
After lunch, use another 10 minutes to comb your hair. Repeat the method in the morning. You don’t need to bathe your face, pull your ears and scratch your neck, but you need to reactivate the blood of the head and stimulate the head acupuncture points. Before going to bed at night, comb your hair for 10 minutes. Including bathing the face, pulling the ears and grasping the neck, so that the acupoints on the head can be stimulated and activated more effectively. Move slowly and slowly, close your eyes tightly, and put aside all distracting thoughts. Head massage before going to bed can improve the quality of sleep.
The health care of combing hair still needs to pay attention to methods. Experts believe that when combing your hair, you should comb your hair from your forehead to the back of your head, then from left to right, from right to left, then lower your head and comb from the back of the hairline to the front.
It is required to make the root of the hair perpendicular to the scalp when combing, so as not to damage the hair follicles and damage the pore tissue. Generally, comb your hair for about 10 minutes each time, which is about a hundred. Do not use too much force when combing, as long as the comb teeth lightly touch the scalp. For dry hair, you may wish to heavier it when combing. If it is oily hair, do not use force, otherwise it will stimulate the oil glands to secrete more oil.
3. There are many patterns of combs and a lot of knowledge. The comb for combing hair is very important to clean or not. Many scalp diseases are transmitted through combs. Because the dirt remains on the comb for a long time, chemical changes will occur, so the comb should be washed frequently. In terms of the craftsmanship of the comb, a good comb feels good, the teeth and tips of the teeth are smooth and delicate, and do not damage the scalp, hair follicles, and hair roots. The materials of the combs have their own merits. Good quality combs are made of pure natural materials such as high-quality horns, boxwood, peach wood, sandalwood, etc., without static electricity and no chemical hazards.
According to the “Compendium of Materia Medica”: “The horns are sour and salty, cool and non-toxic.” The use of a corner comb will not generate static electricity. Combing the hair with a corner comb several times in the morning every day can promote blood circulation when massaging the scalp and head nerves, and its pharmacological properties will also penetrate into the human body invisibly. Massage the head with a corner comb at night. Its “cooling blood and detoxification” pharmacological properties can relax the tension and fatigue of the day.
Regular use of angle combs can effectively reduce and eliminate hair loss, hair breakage, and dandruff. Long-term use can eliminate headaches and other head diseases, make you clear-headed, refreshed, and quick-thinking.
