Moxibustion sachets and foot baths Three treasures for disease prevention in spring

  Lingnan spring, drizzle, cold wind and damp, weather changes easily lead to various diseases. Professor Lin Xiaojie, director of the disease prevention center of Guangdong Second Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said that Chinese medicine emphasizes the importance of treating disease before disease, strengthening the body, and preventing disease before disease is very important. Residents can use moxibustion, sachet and foot bath to prevent disease.
  Moxibustion fumigation to avoid filth and dehumidification
  The use of moxibustion to avoid filth and dehumidification has a long history in China, and there is a habit of placing moxa leaves in front of and behind the house during the Qingming Festival every year. Modern medical research has shown that moxibustion has significant bactericidal and antibacterial effects on more than ten common bacteria and fungi.
   Lin Xiaojie said, indoor moxibustion, it is recommended to use a common moxa stick (a diameter of 1.8 cm) in each room, close the door and close the window, ignite and fumigate for more than 30 minutes to achieve a good sterilization effect. If someone in the house is inconvenient to close the doors and windows, you can also light the moxa sticks and place them in the upper wind to get rid of dampness, remove filth, and rejuvenate your mind.
  Scented sachet to relieve the nerves and help sleep
   The weather is cold in the spring, and the room is humid, and the temperature fluctuates up and down. More and more people catch colds and recurrent rhinitis. Lin Xiaojie pointed out that don’t develop the habit of staying up in the morning and not sleeping at night because of being closed at home for a long time. In spring, the cold and dampness are severe, the liver qi rises, and it is easy to be tired, upset and irritable. You can wear traditional Chinese medicine sachets to alleviate these conditions.
  1. Anti-flu sachet
   can choose white cardamom, Elsholtzia, mugwort, Peylan, Huoxiang and other traditional Chinese medicines, which can help promote qi and dispel dampness, wake up the spleen, and prevent influenza.
  2. Rhinitis relief sachet
  Atractylodes, mint, woody, angelica, asarum and other traditional Chinese medicines can be used to help evacuate wind-heat, clear the boss, and relieve the nasal orifice, but the amount of asarum should be controlled within 1-2 grams.
  3. Soothing and sleeping sachet
  Clove, schisandra, wild jujube seed and other traditional Chinese medicines can be used, which can help converge and stabilize the body, nourish the mind and calm the nerves, nourish the spleen and calm the mind, and alleviate problems such as insomnia, irritability, and palpitations caused by lack of energy.
  Chinese medicine foot massage to prevent colds
  Through foot massage, it can stimulate the corresponding meridians and viscera, promote the generation of yang, promote the circulation of qi and blood, warm the whole body, strengthen the body, prevent colds, and generate yang in spring to promote growth.

How to do a good job in home epidemic prevention? Smoked mugwort leaf herb, drink six medicinal tea

   During this period, due to the impact of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, most people stayed at home. Li Lixia, director of the Department of Acupuncture and Moxibustion at Guangzhou Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said that in addition to washing hands frequently and ensuring indoor ventilation, you can also use traditional Chinese medicine to smoke to achieve the effect of eliminating filth and pests.

  Disinfect and avoid pests, Ai Ye and Cangzhu will help

   Li Lixia said that Chinese medicine has a wealth of experience in fighting the plague. Every time the plague strikes, Chinese medicine plays a very important role. Ancient physicians often used fumigation and burning of medicines to prevent epidemics. According to the characteristics of this epidemic that is mainly cold and wet, she recommends that everyone use mugwort and atractylodes to smoke their homes.

  How to use: Use dry moxa and atractylodes, according to the ratio of 1:1, about 30-60 grams per 100 square meters of space. Soak Atractylodes in 95% alcohol for one day, remove it, drain the alcohol, mix it with moxa and light it, blow out the sprouts, and smoke for about 30-60 minutes, once a day.

   In the absence of alcohol, atractylodes can also be beaten into coarse powder, mixed with moxa, and smoked. Moxa burns a lot of smoke, if you can’t adapt to the smoke of moxa, you can also smoke it with atractylodes alone.

   Caution for use: Put it in an open indoor place for smoke, away from surrounding flammable materials. When there is a flame, be sure to extinguish the fire. Disinfection and pest control mainly rely on smoke. When traditional Chinese medicine is smoked, it is best to close the doors and windows tightly. After they are fully burned, the smoke fills the house. People should take shelter. After about 1 to 2 hours, open the doors and windows for ventilation. People who are allergic to smoke should not use it.

   Li Lixia introduced that Artemisia argyi is an essential product for dispelling cold and dehumidifying, warming menstruation and relieving pain, and preventing filth and evil spirits. It is an important medicine used to prevent plague in ancient my country. Modern research has also shown that moxa can inhibit and kill a variety of bacteria and viruses. Atractylodes has the effects of removing dampness and strengthening the spleen, removing wind and removing dampness. Mugwort and Atractylodes can work together to aromatize dampness and remove dirt and turbidity.

  At home to fight the epidemic, I often drink six medicine tea

   Living at home, people are often stressed and anxious, which affects life and sleep; staring at the news on mobile phones and computers every day makes people’s eyes dry and neck pain; reduced exercise, irregular meals, and immune system decline. In view of the discomfort caused by these conditions, six medicinal teas are recommended.

   American ginseng and notoginseng tea enhances immunity

   10 grams of American ginseng slices, 5 grams of panax notoginseng slices, 15 grams of red Ganoderma lucidum slices (fried with rice to reduce the bitterness and astringency), 15 grams of astragalus, and 3 pitted red dates. Put the above-mentioned medicinal materials in a health-preserving pot, add 1 liter of water, and cook for 40 minutes to replace the tea. The general health pot can be kept warm for 8 hours, and it can be re-fried once after drinking. If cooking in a casserole, add 1.5 liters of water and cook for 30 minutes. After pouring the concoction, immediately add 750 ml of boiling water to the dregs to decoct 500 ml of concoction. Mix the two decoctions and store them in a thermos. Keep warm and drink at any time. It is recommended to drink 2 to 3 days a week.

During the anti-epidemic period, “kidney protection” tips for nephrologists

   Around the Spring Festival in 2020, the new coronavirus is raging on the land of China. With the in-depth study of the virus by medical staff and scientific researchers, it is currently believed that the main way of transmission of the new coronavirus is respiratory droplets. And contact transmission, aerosol transmission and fecal-oral transmission routes need to be further clarified. People with weakened immune function, the elderly, and people with varying degrees of underlying diseases are susceptible to the new coronavirus. Wearing masks, washing hands frequently, ventilating more, and gathering less are great tips for preventing the spread of the virus. Patients with kidney disease are susceptible to the new coronavirus because of their poor immunity, especially those who use hormones and immunosuppressants. Many kidney friends correctly choose to stay at home to avoid the virus, thereby reducing the risk of infection. So the question is, how can kidney friends continue to “protect the kidney” while hiding from the virus at home?

  1. In terms of diet: People who “hide at home” have more time to think about how to make a variety of delicious dishes to satisfy their taste buds, but they are high in protein, high in purine, and high in fat. , High-sugar, high-sodium, high-potassium, and high-phosphorus diets are precisely what some nephrologists should ban. Recommendation: A light diet, a low-salt, low-fat, high-quality protein diet, always remember the advice of a nephrologist, strictly control your diet, and do not aggravate kidney disease due to temporary gluttony.

  2. Life and rest: People living at home have lost the regularity of the past. Bad lifestyle habits such as using mobile phones, Ge You to lie in, sleeping late, staying up late, etc. may be quietly silent Exacerbate your kidney disease. Suggestion:

  1) Strict life and rest, go to bed early and get up early to restore the biological clock to normal.

  2). Take medicine on time: You can rely on an alarm clock or divide the medicine into a medicine box to remind kidney friends to take medicine regularly. Hormones, immunosuppressants, antihypertensive drugs, hypoglycemic drugs, etc., should not be discontinued or reduced without the consent of the doctor.

  3) Appropriate exercise: “Life lies in exercise”, kidney friends can practice Taijiquan, Baduanjin, yoga, etc. at home, or do appropriate housework, not just for relaxation. Rejuvenating the muscles and bones is also beneficial to the recovery of kidney disease.

  4) Keep a good mood:Although the epidemic is severe, kidney friends should relax and believe that the vast number of medical workers in China can overcome the virus. When feeling bored, it is recommended that kidney friends can read books, read newspapers, grow flowers, etc. to soothe their mood.

  3. In terms of follow-up visits: In order to reduce the risk of viral infection, it is recommended that kidney friends with relatively stable conditions can appropriately extend the follow-up time, strict self-management of chronic diseases at home, and always pay attention to what their body emits. Various signals to understand changes in self-condition. If your condition changes and you need to see a doctor, you should go to the nephrology specialist for follow-up in time with proper protection.

   “The righteous qi is inside, and the evil cannot be done.” I hope that the majority of kidney friends will take good care of their own lives while maintaining their own righteous qi to avoid contracting the new crown virus, and to “protect the kidneys” throughout.

“Seven percent full” can prolong life? Scientists reveal the anti-aging mechanism of dieting

   Calorie restriction, that is, dietary restraint, has been proven to be an important way to delay aging in many species, but the specific molecular mechanism of its tissue cells is still unclear. The Chinese Academy of Sciences and other research teams recently published a research result online in the authoritative American journal “Cell”. Through high-throughput single-cell transcriptome sequencing technology, it revealed a new molecular mechanism for dieting to delay aging, and confirmed that it is “satisfied” at the multi-organ level. “Can delay aging.
  The progressive decline of multiple organs accompanied by aging is a key cause of major aging-related diseases, such as neurodegenerative diseases and cardiovascular diseases. The diversity of cell types determines the heterogeneity and complexity of tissues and organs, leading to different cellular and molecular characteristics of tissues and organs in the aging process, but traditional research techniques are difficult to accurately reveal the specific molecular changes of cell types.
  Researchers from research institutions such as the Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing Institute of Genomics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Salk Institute of Biology, USA. They use rodent rats as the research object, based on high-throughput single cell and mononuclear transcription Group sequencing technology has drawn the first multi-organ single-cell transcriptome map of mammalian aging and dieting, and systematically assessed the effects of aging and dieting on different types of tissue cells in the body.
   Qu Jing, a researcher at the Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, introduced that starting from middle-aged rats, “seven percent full” (70% calorie intake of any food intake) intervention can reduce aging at the tissue, cell and molecular levels. Indications to extend its life. Based on the transcriptome analysis of more than 200,000 single cells and cell nuclei obtained from 9 tissues of the young all-eating group, the old all-eating group, and the old dieting group, the scientists mapped the different tissues and organs in the aging and dieting state. Molecular network map.
   Zhang Weiqi, a researcher at the Beijing Institute of Genomics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that changes in the composition of aging-related cell types occurred in the tested tissues, and more than half of these changes can be suppressed by dieting. “The results show that the increased immune inflammatory pressure in multiple tissues is a hallmark feature of aging, and dieting can effectively reverse the accumulation of pro-inflammatory cells in aging tissues.”
   Liu Guanghui, a researcher at the Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, believes that this study systematically analyzes the cellular and molecular changes of the body’s aging at the multi-organ and multi-tissue level for the first time, and provides new biological markers for aging warning. At the same time, it also reveals the important role of the immune regulatory system in dieting intervention in the aging process, laying a theoretical foundation for the further development of intervention strategies for aging and related diseases, and has important value in scientifically coping with aging.
