Nourish the lungs in autumn to be “warm and calm”

   After the fall, the weather is still very hot, and many people still maintain the lifestyle and eating habits of blowing air-conditioning and eating cold drinks in the summer, which is the so-called “autumn summer season”. Although the temperature has not changed, the solar terms have changed, the autumn wind rises, the temperature difference between morning and evening gradually increases, and the sun is gradually reduced. If you don’t pay attention, you will be attacked by external evils.

   Chinese medicine believes: “The lung is the body that purifies the deficiency, and is the cover of the internal organs and six internal organs. It opens to the nose, and the skin and fur. The six evils of exogenous feelings enter from the fur of the nose and mouth. Most of the lungs are attacked first, and the lungs are delicate and tender. , Is not tolerant to cold and heat, and is easy to be attacked by evil.” In other words, the lungs are delicate organs, avoiding cold and heat and avoiding dryness and sorrow, so the lungs should be “warm”, “moisturized” and “quiet” in autumn.

   dress “warm”. The lungs are canopies connected to the throat and nose, which are vital to the health of the body. The temperature difference in autumn changes greatly, and symptoms such as poor breathing, nasal congestion and colds are more common. After autumn, the nasal mucosa feels uncomfortable to the cold air stimulation in the morning and evening, and it is easy to catch colds, colds, and runny nose. Therefore, in the morning and evening, you should add clothes appropriately, and you can also massage your nose more, not only to regulate the lungs, but also to prevent nasal congestion and runny nose.

   Diet “run”. 1. Nourish the lungs and prevent dryness. After the fall, the climate is dry, and “dryness will moisturize it.” It is recommended to eat more foods that nourish yin, moisten the lungs and prevent dryness, such as lotus seeds, lilies, white fungus, pumpkins, and loquats. People who have weak spleen and stomach functions and are prone to indigestion can eat Poria, Gorgon, Chinese Yam, Millet, White Lentils, and those with dry mouth and tongue can add Ophiopogon, Dendrobium, Pseudoginseng, etc. Recommend two therapeutic prescriptions. One is Zengye Decoction: Take 15 grams of Scrophulariaceae, 12 grams of Ophiopogon japonicus, and 12 grams of raw land, and decoct them together. You can take it if you experience dryness and thirst, recurrent oral ulcers, habitual constipation, and chronic pharyngitis. The second is white fungus and lily soup: Tremella and lily are mild in nature and taste. They can be boiled together to nourish qi, nourish yin, nourish lungs and relieve cough, calm the mind and calm the mind. It is suitable for people who are prone to get angry and suffer from deficiency. 2. Less pungent and more acid. According to “Suwen·Zangqi Law Time Theory”: “The lungs govern autumn, the lungs converge, and the acid can be recovered quickly by eating acid, and acid can be used to replenish it, and pungent to relieve it.” It can be seen that the acid constricts the lung qi, and the pungent food diffuses and reduces the lung. It should be harvested but not scattered in autumn. It is recommended that you try to eat less spicy foods such as ginger and peppers, and eat sour fruits and vegetables, such as tomatoes, ebony plums, and grapes, to help nourish your lungs.

  Emotion and movement “quiet”. In autumn, the five internal organs correspond to the lungs, and the lungs are sorrowful. Therefore, in autumn, you must try to be calm, calm, and comfortable, and avoid sorrow and sadness. Even if you encounter unhappy things, you should take the initiative to self-regulate to prevent damage to your lungs. “Static” does not mean not exercising, but it means that exercise should not be intense, and you can choose relaxing and gentle aerobic activities, such as walking, jogging, Tai Chi, etc., to prevent excessive sweating and loss of yang.

Go mountain climbing in autumn, don’t forget to protect your knees

   The sky is high and the clouds are light, and the southern flying geese can be seen off. Autumn is a good time to climb high and look far away. Mountain climbing can not only enjoy the scenery, relax the mood, and liberate the tired body and mind, but also a fashionable way of fitness, which can increase muscle strength, improve cardiorespiratory function, and comprehensively improve physical fitness. But while enjoying the happiness brought by mountaineering, don’t forget to protect your knee joints. After all, mountaineering is also a sport that tests the function of the knee joint.

   Today, Wei Ni, deputy chief physician of the Department of Rheumatology, Dongfang Hospital, Beijing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, taught you a few tips to protect your knee joints while climbing.

  1. Before climbing

  1. Develop a suitable climbing plan

   Make a climbing plan based on personal physical conditions, including walking distance, summit height, estimated time required, etc., should be within the range of one’s body, and should not blindly pursue long-distance, high-intensity mountaineering. As the saying goes, “it is easy to go up the mountain, but difficult to go down.” For people with knee joint disease in the past, they can choose to take a cable car when climbing on foot and when going down the mountain to reduce the pressure on the knee joint.

  2. Minimize the items you bring with you

  Heavy backpacks can increase the weight of the knee joints when climbing, so you should minimize the items you bring with you, and keep the excess items under the mountain to be supervised or placed in storage.

  3. Choose comfortable shoes, knee pads, and use trekking poles

  Comfortable hiking shoes have a good supporting effect on the arch of the foot and help keep the pace stable. Knee pads can not only keep warm, but also reduce the impact of external force on the knee joint. The research direction is that the use of trekking poles can reduce the pressure on the knee joint by at least 1/4 when climbing, especially in the downhill section, the role of trekking poles is more obvious.

  Second, while climbing

  1. Do a warm-up exercise

   Do not neglect the warm-up exercise. Adequate warm-up exercise can stretch the joints, muscles, ligaments, etc., and effectively avoid soft tissue damage.

  2. Choose a gentle slope course and follow an S-shaped curve

   During the climbing process, you should choose a route that is not very difficult and has a gentle slope. It is recommended to take an S-shaped curve during the journey instead of directly up and down.

  3. Slow down and rest properly

  Don’t pursue speed ignorantly during the climbing process, you can stop and take a nap from time to time to enjoy

  The scenery along the way can also replenish water and energy.

  3. After climbing

  1. Raise the lower limbs and rest as soon as possible

   After climbing, you should go back and rest as soon as possible, raise your lower limbs, reduce the resistance of venous blood return, and avoid standing for a long time, so that your knee joints can get adequate rest.

  2. Use hot compresses to alleviate the symptoms of knee joint discomfort

   If you experience knee joint pain, swelling and other uncomfortable symptoms after climbing, you can use hot compress to treat it, or apply traditional Chinese medicine wine that has the effect of promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis.

   In addition, I would like to remind everyone that although mountain climbing is good, it is not suitable for everyone, especially those with severe knee joint diseases. Mountain climbing is not recommended as a way of exercise.

The food is moldy, it’s best to throw it whole

   The apple is a bit rotten, the bread has a few mildew spots, and the sugar cane is broken for a short time… In such a situation, many people will cut off the broken part and eat the rest. This saves money, but it increases food safety risks.

   Moldy foods, regardless of their size, may contain a variety of mycotoxins. Take fruit as an example. Its juicy, sugar, and nutrient are very suitable for mold growth. As long as there is a chance, mold can invade the pulp immediately and multiply, causing moldy rot. Two common mycotoxins in fruits are produced by patulin: Patulin can cause disorders of the human gastrointestinal tract, causing kidney edema and other diseases, and ochratoxin has liver and kidney toxicity. In addition, there are a few molds that are more toxic. For example, the “arthrocida mycotoxin” that may be present in spoiled sugarcane is not only a clear carcinogen, but if pregnant women accidentally eat it, it may also cause fetal malformations.

   The food is moldy, rotten, and has green hairs. It is best to throw away the whole food. There are two reasons for this. First, it is almost impossible for you to accurately cut the toxin-containing part. According to the national standard, the content of patulin in fruits and fruit and vegetable juice beverages shall not exceed 50 μg/kg, and the content of ochratoxin A in grape products shall not exceed 2 μg/kg. Note that 1 microgram is equal to one millionth of a gram, which is a very small unit, about one-fourth of the weight of a hair. Such a small amount of content will cause harm to the human body, which means that cutting off the rotten part is actually a very difficult “technical job”, even if the toxin has not spread, in case the hand shakes and the rotten part is stained. , May eat excessive toxins into the stomach. Second, the flesh that looks intact may have been contaminated by mold. Because most fruits are rich in water content, it can be understood that the internal juice is circulating, and mold spreads in the interior with the juice, and a large amount of invisible pulp may have been occupied by mold. This situation is more obvious in fruits that tend to soften and ripen, such as mangoes, peaches, and apples. A program on Hunan TV once found a rotten peach and a fresh peach, and sampled them separately to detect the number of fungi. The results showed that in rotting peaches, the number of fungi in the rotten part was 82,500, the number of fungi in the unrotted part was 53,100, and the number of fungi in fresh peaches was 8,000. Obviously, as long as peaches rot, even in the good part, the number of fungi is many times higher than that of fresh peaches. The research results of the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine also show that the content of patulin in the normal-looking part of the moldy apple is 10% to 50% of the moldy part, so even the flesh that looks normal on the outside actually contains a lot of harmful substances. Not suitable for consumption.

   It should be noted that in addition to damage caused by microorganisms, fruits are also prone to bruises and frostbite. As a result of bruising, the meat tends to become softer and the color darkens. This is due to the damage of the cells and the enzymatic browning of the substances in the cells, but no harmful substances are produced. At this time, eating does not affect your health. However, bruised fruits provide good conditions for the growth of microorganisms due to the exposure of nutrients, so they must be eaten immediately, otherwise they will be easily invaded by palatinum and mildew will occur. Similarly, low temperature can also cause damage to the cell membrane of some fruits. Although the taste and appearance of frostbitten fruits are worse, they are still edible.

To maintain the “inner city” ovaries, first tonic

  Interviewed experts:

  Teng Xiuxiang, Chief Physician of Gynecology, Beijing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine Affiliated to Capital Medical University

   Our reporter Gao Jiayue’s ovaries are reproductive organs and their importance to women is self-evident. However, in recent years, the incidence of premature ovarian failure has increased year by year, showing a younger trend. Teng Xiuxiang, chief physician of the Department of Gynecology, Beijing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine Affiliated to Capital Medical University, said that in order for women to look beautiful and delay aging, in addition to external maintenance, the “inner city” of ovaries should also be carefully taken care of.

   Premature ovarian failure refers to the early decline of ovarian reserve, aging, and even early menopause. The clinical manifestations are amenorrhea and infertility before the age of 40, accompanied by symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, reduced leucorrhea, insomnia, low libido, and vaginal dryness, but B-ultrasound examinations indicate that there is no organic disease in the ovaries. Teng Xiuxiang said that the cause of premature ovarian failure may be related to family heredity, ovarian destructive factors (radiotherapy, chemotherapy, surgery, infection, etc.), and autoimmune damage. In addition, eating foods that may contain pesticide residues, reproductive toxicity of certain drugs, and air pollution are all causes of premature ovarian failure.

   In fact, there is no “premature ovarian failure” in the ancient Chinese medicine records, but its symptoms and onset characteristics are consistent with the symptoms of “monthly water first closure” and “premature cessation of menstrual water” in traditional Chinese medicine, which can be classified as “amenorrhea” and “blood dryness”. “And other categories. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the kidney is the foundation of the innate and the root of vitality, which stores essence and reproduction. “The Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic” says: “Er Qi and Tiangui Zhi, Ren mai tong, Tai Chong mai sheng, menstruation is current, so there are sons…” It means that the changes in women’s menstrual physiology and reproductive function are related to the production of kidney qi. The natural process of gradual prosperity, fullness, gradual decline to exhaustion has a consistent law. Insufficiency of kidney yin, deficiency of qi and blood, and weak kidney qi are the main pathogenesis of premature ovarian failure. The mood is also related to the onset of premature ovarian failure. The pressure of modern women in social life is increasing, which often causes mental and emotional problems such as tension, anxiety, depression, etc., “emotions cause liver qi not to be sparse”, and long-term strong emotional changes can also interfere with “Kidney-Tiangui-Chongren-” The normal function of the “Uterus” axis.

   To judge whether the ovaries are prematurely failure, menstruation is a measure. Women’s normal menstrual cycle is generally 28 to 30 days, menstrual period is generally 3 to 7 days, menstrual volume is generally within 100 ml, with the second to 3 days as the most. In most people with premature ovarian failure, menstrual abnormalities such as postmenstrual cycle errors, shortened menstrual periods, and reduced menstrual volume will occur during the period before the onset of the disease. Women under the age of 40, once menstruation continues for several months, they should be wary of whether there is a decline in ovarian reserve, which is the early stage of the onset of premature ovarian failure. After the onset of premature ovarian failure, ovarian function is not irreversible. It is clinically found that the use of traditional Chinese medicine treatment to adjust the qi, blood, yin and yang of the whole body can improve ovarian function to a certain extent. Teng Xiuxiang said that to maintain ovarian function, prevention is more important than treatment.

   First of all, it is more effective for the ovaries to stimulate emotions and for a happy mood than any supplement.

  Secondly, ensure adequate sleep and avoid excessive daily life. Traditional Chinese medicine has the view that “women take blood as the foundation and liver as the innate”, and nourishing liver and blood is very important for women. Insufficient liver blood, there will be symptoms such as low menstrual flow, rough and dark skin, and acne on the face. The best way to nourish the liver and blood is to ensure adequate sleep. It is recommended to fall asleep before 11 o’clock in the evening.

   Third, ensure adequate protein intake, eat more foods rich in vitamin E such as cabbage and cauliflower, eat more animal offal, milk and soy products rich in vitamin B2, and those rich in vitamin B6 Cereals, beans, lean meat, etc. Many women excessively diet or take drugs to lose weight. This practice is not advisable and will reduce ovarian reserve.

   Fourth, exercise can effectively help promote metabolism and blood circulation, and delay the aging and hypofunction of the internal organs of the body. Therefore, to maintain the ovaries, you can exercise appropriately, such as dancing square dance, practicing yoga, brisk walking and swimming.

   Fifth, TCM treatment of premature ovarian failure is mainly based on the kidney, that is, nourishing the kidney and promoting blood circulation, nourishing kidney yin, and soothing the liver and regulating menstruation. People who have symptoms of premature ovarian failure can be treated with traditional Chinese medicine while also cooperating with medicinal diet therapy. Here are two medicinal diets for everyone: oatmeal, millet, red date porridge. Appropriate amount of millet, 7 red dates, add water to cook the porridge; add oats when it is ready, and continue to cook for 6 to 8 minutes. Shenqi Chicken Soup: 15 grams of Codonopsis, 20 grams of Astragalus and 200 grams of chicken. Put the Codonopsis and Astragalus into the stewing pot, add appropriate amount of water and simmer for 30 minutes, then add the chicken and stew for 2 hours. Season to serve.

   In recent years, some beauty salons have adopted the brand of ovarian maintenance. Teng Xiuxiang reminded that these are all gimmicks and are useless at all. Take the most common essential oil massage as an example. The ovaries are located in the pelvic cavity, with the bladder in front and the rectum in the back. They will not be touched when lying flat. The ovaries cannot be touched by general massage techniques, and the essential oils cannot go deep into the ovaries and directly work. .

Pain in urine and abdominal distension, caused by deficiency of spleen and kidney yang

  文/Yangcheng Evening News reporter Lin Qingqing Correspondent Shen Zhong

   Medical record: Mr. Lin, 33 years old, has painful urine and abdominal distension for more than 1 year

   Mr. Lin, a 33-year-old white-collar worker, often sits in the office for one day and does not go to the toilet several times. In the past 1 year, I have experienced astringent pain when urinating every three to five times, and I often feel lower abdomen distension. After the wife learned about it, she thought that it was caused by dampness and heat, so she burned in plantain, chrysanthemum and other heat-clearing, detoxifying and dampening beverages. She drank it for more than half a year. It was relieved at first, but it didn’t work lately. Mr. Lin often feels light-taste and likes to eat deep-fried and spicy foods, and his symptoms worsen after eating. I was diagnosed with prostatitis in a hospital. After standard treatment, he was relieved, but he still had painful urination. Recently, he was suffering from backache and back pain. He was often afraid of the cold. He felt cold when others wandered around in the air-conditioned room. Recently, I was sweating more than before, and my stool was not forming, so I asked Uncle De for treatment.

Uncle   De ​​mystery: Weakness of spleen and kidney yang, hot and dampness in Xiajiao

  Uncle De believes that the root cause of Mr. Lin’s pain and discomfort when urinating is the deficiency of the spleen and kidney. Mr. Lin likes to eat raw, cold and spicy food, which stimulates the spleen and stomach and burdens the spleen and stomach. The spleen’s function of transporting and transforming water and dampness becomes weak, and the water that cannot be excreted accumulates in the body. And because of busy work, often holding back urine, long-term sitting for a long time, the water and urine in the body will become stagnant and heat, turning into damp heat. Damp pathogens flow down like water and are stored in the bladder, causing pain during urination. In terms of treatment, as Mr. Lin has a long course of illness and mixed deficiency and excess, but deficiency is more common, Uncle De starts with the fundamentals to strengthen the spleen and kidney’s ability to warm water and moisture, and then use a little bit to help dissipate the damp heat accumulated under the bladder The evil Chinese medicine treats both symptoms and root causes. Before and after intermittent treatment for more than two weeks, he was given instructions on diet, and painful urination, coldness, and backache were alleviated significantly.

   Preventive health care: Say goodbye to cold, cooperate with moxibustion

In the season of white dew, the yin qi gradually increases. Guangzhou is still hot during the day, but it will get cold sooner or later. It is not advisable to expose less clothes at this time. The lower body such as the abdomen, legs and feet should be kept warm. Uncle De suggested to eat less cold melons, fruits and vegetables such as watermelon, cantaloupe, cucumber, bitter melon, kelp, tofu, watercress. Usually can cooperate with moxibustion therapy to relieve symptoms, choose Ji, Guanyuan, Taixi, Sanyinjiao and other points. The specific operation method is as follows: place the ignited moxa sticks 2 to 3 cm away from the skin, and perform moxibustion. Moxibustion at each acupoint for 10-15 minutes, 2 to 3 times a week.


  Zhongji acupoint: Located on the lower abdomen, 4 inches below the belly button (about the width of a palm).

   Guanyuan Point: Located on the lower abdomen, 3 inches below the belly button (about the width of four fingers except the thumb).

   Taixi Point: Located on the inside of the foot, the depression between the Achilles tendon and the medial malleolus.

   Sanyinjiao Point: Located on the inner side of the calf, 3 inches above the tip of the medial malleolus, and the posterior edge of the tibia.

  Uncle De’s Health and Medicinal Food Room: Morinda citrifolia walnut pot pork spine

   Ingredients: 500 grams of pork spine, 20 grams of Morinda officinalis, 60 grams of peanuts, 20 grams of fried atractylodes, 20 grams of wolfberry, 3 to 5 slices of ginger, and appropriate amount of salt.

   Effect: Tonifying the kidney, strengthening the spleen and dehumidification.

   Cooking method: Wash everything, cut the pork spine into pieces, and blanch it in boiling water; put the above ingredients into a pot, add 1500 ml of water (about 6 bowls of water), and turn to a simmer after boiling. Boil for 1 hour, add appropriate amount of salt to taste. This is for 2 to 3 people.

Less exercise, no hydration, often staying up late? Be wary of cardiovascular disease “find your door”!

   Many people know that cardiovascular disease is easy to develop in winter, and there are often discussions among the people on topics such as “how to safely survive winter for patients with cardiovascular disease”. However, Professor Chen Xiangxin, deputy director of the Department of Cardiology, Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University, reminded that due to the continuous changes in lifestyle, diet and other habits, the alternate season of summer and autumn has also become a season of high incidence of cardiovascular diseases, especially since the beginning of autumn. The number of patients in emergency, emergency and hospitalization is also showing an increasing trend, and more and more young people in their 30s and 40s are also vulnerable to cardiovascular disease. Therefore, the cardiovascular problems in the Bailu season need to arouse everyone’s attention.

  Why are cardiovascular problems so easy to “find their door” in this season? This is because in summer and autumn, people exercise less outdoor activities and do not replenish water in time, resulting in high blood viscosity; short sleep time, difficult blood sugar control, and large temperature difference between day and night, colds, flu and other diseases increase, causing acute attacks or aggravation of cardiovascular diseases.

   Then, how should the general public effectively reduce the adverse effects of seasonal changes on cardiovascular health? Professor Chen Yangxin believes that the following aspects can be effective ways for everyone to protect cardiovascular health during the transition season:

   1. Pay attention to climate change and prevent various infections.

  Infection is the primary cause of heart failure, and the changeable climate in summer and autumn is a “natural hotbed” for infectious diseases. Patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases have poor resistance to disease, and their heart’s ability to bear the burden is also weak. Therefore, they need to be particularly careful about various infectious diseases caused by climate change.

  2. Appropriate outdoor exercise, and pay attention to supplementing water and necessary electrolytes.

  Insufficient exercise or a lot of perspiration and neglecting to replenish water can easily lead to thick blood and thrombosis. Although the hot weather has not completely passed, long-term lack of outdoor exercise can also lead to problems such as decreased immunity.

  3. Maintain a stable mood, and treat symptoms as soon as possible.

   Emotional excitement can cause sympathetic nerve excitement, resulting in faster heartbeat and increased heart burden. Therefore, patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases should not be overly agitated, and seek medical attention as soon as possible when symptoms such as palpitation, chest tightness, chest pain, and suffocation occur.

   4. Don’t make too much changes in your diet.

  Many friends will “tonify” their diet in autumn, and the structural changes in diet are actually not conducive to the excessive seasonality of cardiovascular disease patients. In the diet of each meal, the combination of meat and vegetables should be guaranteed, and the involvement of protein, lipids, carbohydrates, vitamins, and fiber should not be ignored.

  5. In particular, staying up late should be avoided.

   This includes not only trying not to go to bed too late, but also trying not to eat midnight snacks at night. In addition, cardiovascular diseases tend to occur frequently at night and in the morning. This is related to insufficient blood volume at night, high blood viscosity, and easy formation of thrombus. Therefore, it is necessary to establish good work and rest habits and pay attention to hydrating.

  6. Fully understand the precursors of the disease and grasp the best time for medical treatment.

   Cardiovascular disease patients, including some friends who have no clear cardiovascular disease in the past, need to pay attention to and understand some of the precursors of cardiovascular disease. For example, before the onset of myocardial infarction, there are often prodromal symptoms such as chest tightness, chest pain, and decreased activity endurance, especially from scratch, from mild to severe, from sparse to frequent, from short to continuous, from onset to rest after activity When you have an attack, you must be vigilant, and it is best to seek medical attention in advance.

  In addition to the above six aspects, Professor Chen Yangxin also reminded everyone with cardiovascular disease patients that cardiovascular disease is basically a chronic disease that needs long-term prevention and control. Patients with basic cardiovascular diseases, no matter how the climate changes, need to pay attention to adhere to appropriate medical treatment. Even if adjustments are needed, they also need to consult a professional cardiovascular expert to decide whether to adjust according to the situation, and cannot make their own claims. Drug treatment It is an important prevention method that cannot be replaced. (Reporter Zhang Hua, Correspondent Huang Rui, Zhang Yang)

What to do with cervical discomfort? Please bookmark this teacher’s occupational disease prevention skills

   September 10, 2020 is China’s 36th Teacher’s Day. Cervical spondylosis is one of the common diseases of teachers. On the occasion of Teacher’s Day, Liu Yang, a massage physiotherapist at Oriental Hospital of Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, prepared a “Tuina Gift” for the teachers.

  Self-detection of cervical spondylosis

  To judge if you have cervical spondylosis, do a simple self-test first:

  1. The neck and back are afraid of cold, and the neck is sore. I feel that the neck or back is particularly afraid of cold, and there is a feeling of tightness or even stiffness;

  2. When the neck is painful, the arms or fingers also have pain or numbness;

  3. Close your eyes and slowly rotate your head left and right. There are symptoms of cervical pain, dizziness or migraine;

  4. Frequent neck pain, weakness in the upper or lower limbs, make a fist, and then fully extend it, less than 20 times in 10 seconds;

  5. If you lower your head for a long time, you will experience dizziness, nausea, and rotation of your vision, etc.;

   6. The requirements for pillows and sleeping environment are very high, and it is especially easy to stiff neck if you are not careful.

   If you occasionally experience the above symptoms, be careful, because cervical spondylosis is approaching you quietly.

   If the above symptoms occur frequently, or two or three of the above symptoms occur, you are probably already a patient with cervical spondylosis, and you need to go to a regular hospital for examination and treatment. In addition to physical examination of the neck, X-rays of the cervical spine are also taken, and CT or magnetic resonance examinations are performed if necessary to confirm diagnosis. The discomfort caused by these cervical vertebrae is mostly related to the long-term head-down posture.

  Three ways to relieve cervical discomfort

  1. Take the neck and shoulder lightly

   Put the thumb and the four fingers together, loosen it from top to bottom and gently hold the neck muscles for about 2 minutes.

   Note: First take the pain points around, and finally take the pain points. The movements should be gentle, with slight pain as the degree.

  2. Take the shoulder well

   first use the thumb and four fingers of the affected side to pinch the shoulder well of the healthy side, gradually increase the force until there is a sense of soreness and then keep still, slowly rotate the cervical spine left and right;

   Then use the thumb and four fingers of the healthy side to pinch the affected side’s shoulder well, gradually increase the force until there is a sense of soreness and then stay still, slowly rotate the cervical spine left and right, and gradually increase the amplitude of the affected side. Approximately 2 minutes on each side.

  3. Lay your hands for three miles

   Use the tip of the thumb to press the Sanli point of the hand until the local soreness is unbearable, and keep the strength unchanged. Then do the movements of lowering your head and raising your head, turning your head left and right, gradually increasing the range of motion. About 1 minute on each side.

   Keep practicing the three movements above, and use the break time every day to do exercises for your cervical spine.

Spring covers autumn freezes! How should children “freeze in autumn”?

   Experts in this issue: Chen Zijia and Wu Liqun, Department of Pediatrics, Dongfang Hospital, Beijing University of Chinese Medicine

The    Bailu solar term basically ended the sultry summer, and was the turning point for the fall from hot to cool. In addition, the temperature difference between morning and evening is large, so recently the number of children with colds and coughs in the outpatient clinics has gradually increased. Many parents ask: “They all say’spring cover autumn freezing’. Isn’t it good for the body to freeze in autumn? Why does my child catch a cold and cough before freezing for a day?” The old saying goes “Autumn freezing” It is to increase the child’s ability to adapt to the cold environment through “freezing”, thereby enhancing the child’s physique, but it does not mean that the child will continue to wear short sleeves and skirts when the weather turns cold, but the child’s body temperature regulation ability is not yet mature. Therefore, when the weather is hot and cold, they are more susceptible to the disease than adults. Therefore, there is an old saying: “When you are in the heat, do not show yourself in the white dew.” Although autumn is a good time for cold tolerance training, the “autumn freezing” should not be blind, but should be carried out step by step and scientifically.

   First, perform a cold adaptation. From the beginning of autumn, parents must gradually cultivate their children’s resistance to “freezing.” Eat a balanced diet, do not blindly “stick to the autumn fat”, take more outdoor activities, and get more exposure to outdoor air and sunlight to give your children the confidence of “autumn freezing”. Second, we must grasp the two principles of “gradual” and “moderate”. Exercise should be gradual. It is not suitable to perform high-intensity, excessively long-term activities, nor to exercise to the extent of profuse sweating, so that the child can tolerate it, sweat slightly, and then gradually increase the amount of activity. Furthermore, pay attention to adding clothing in a timely manner. Children should pay attention to the warmth of the abdomen and feet when dressing, and do not dress too thick and tightly. However, for children who are generally poor in physique, have repeated colds or wear more clothes, do not strictly require the clothes to be the same thickness as other children. Add clothes in time according to the child’s physique, exercise volume and weather changes, so that the child has a gradual process of adapting.

   I need to remind parents that “Autumn Freeze” must be different from person to person. Children who usually sweat a lot, have repeated colds and have weak lung qi, or who have yellow complexion, weight loss, loss of appetite, and cold spleen and stomach, especially should pay attention to the degree of “freezing”. If the symptoms of lung and spleen weakness are obvious, it is recommended to perform Chinese medicine conditioning first. Moreover, there are some chronic diseases, such as tic disorder, asthma, allergic rhinitis, adenoid hypertrophy, etc., which are often caused by colds and cause recurrence or aggravation of the disease. Parents should pay special attention to them to avoid colds. Therefore, strengthening children’s physique is not simply “frozen”, more importantly, it is to insist on exercising, eating and dressing reasonably.
