In fact, Chinese medicine is not necessarily “hot”
Xu Lingtai, a famous medical scientist in the Qing Dynasty, once said: “The more the disease is not healed, the more serious the disease will be. If the disease is not ruined by the disease, it will be harmless, but it will be harmful.” Three hundred years agoMedical scientists have realized that the correct method of taking decoction can speed up the improvement of the condition, and the wrong way of taking will make the condition worse.
It can be seen that whether the method of taking the decoction is correct directly affects the absorption and treatment effect of the drug in the human body.
銆€銆€The method of taking the decoction must be correct, and the temperature of the medication is also very particular.
The folks have the saying that they are 鈥渉ot鈥? but this is not completely accurate.
銆€銆€For Chinese medicine, Chinese medicine has an old saying, called “yang disease hot clothes, Yin disease cold clothes.”
Specifically, it can be divided into three types: hot clothes, warm clothes and cool clothes.
Hot clothes and cool clothes should be analyzed according to the situation. The medicine for treating fever can be cold clothes, and the cold disease should be hot.
銆€銆€Hot clothes: Take it when the medicine is hot.
Treatment of cold disease should be hot, that is, patients with aversion to cold fever, no sweat, cold abdominal pain, cold limbs, pale tongue, thin white skin and other symptoms should be taken hot, and can eat hot porridge after servingDrink some hot water to help the medicine.
銆€銆€Warm clothes: After the medicine is fried, put it for a while, and wait until it is not cold or hot.
The general Chinese medicine decoction should be “warm”, such as Pinghe tonic.
銆€銆€Cool clothes: After the liquid is cooled, take it.
Treatment of fever should be cold clothes, patients with fever often manifest as symptoms of fever, thirst, dry stool, short yellow urine, red tongue, yellow tongue coating, fast pulse and other symptoms.
Cold medicines include antidote, antiemetic, and heat-clearing drugs.
In the south of China, some “herbal tea” that is often taken in the summer is actually a kind of traditional Chinese medicine.
銆€銆€Under normal circumstances, most of them called “soup” (such as “Guizhi Tang”, etc.) should be heated, and most of them called “drinking” (such as Dayuan) require cold clothes.
However, to be cautious, it is best for the patient to ask the Chinese medicine practitioner how to take the medicine after the medicine is opened to prevent deviation.
