Six principles of spring and timely health diet
“The Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic?
Stress in the question: “Spring March, this is to say Chen, the world is born, everything is proud.”
Indeed, in the early spring of February, although it is spring and cold, it is warm and cold, but the sunshine of the sun, the green grass, and the scent of the spring that flows through our bodies are all evident: this is aEverything is glory, a thriving season!
Of course, this is also the most active period of our human physiology and metabolism. Let us follow the footsteps of spring and start the spring health exercise!
First of all, TCM health care believes that the human body must obey the laws of yin and yang in the four seasons of spring, summer, autumn and winter, and adapt to the climate change of cold and hot in one year to maintain health and longevity.
As an important part of the diet, it is necessary to determine different dietary principles and requirements according to the climatic characteristics of different seasons and the physiological characteristics of the human body.
According to the principles of spring diet, through my research and a large number of related literatures, the following is summarized as follows: Principle 1: In the early spring, choose to convert higher staple foods and add enough protein.
In the early spring, the temperature is still cold, and the human body needs to consume a certain amount of energy to maintain the cold function.
Therefore, the nutrient structure during early spring should be based on high content. In addition to cereals, foods such as soybeans, sesame, peanuts, and walnuts should be added, and the brakes should be replenished with energy.
In addition, due to the cold stimulation, the decomposition of protein in the body may accelerate, causing the body’s resistance to decrease and cause disease.
Therefore, it is necessary to supplement high-quality protein foods such as eggs, fish, shrimp, beef, chicken, rabbit meat and soy products during the early spring.
The above foods are rich in methionine, and methionine has the function of enhancing the body’s cold tolerance.
Principle 2: Appropriately increase the proportion of fruits and vegetables in the diet to supplement enough vitamins and inorganic salts.
Spring is also the season when the climate changes from cold to warm, temperature changes penetrate, bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms begin to repeat, vitality is strengthened, and it is easy to invade the human body and cause disease, such as common angular cheilitis, glossitis, night blindness and certain skin in spring.Diseases, etc., most of which are caused by lack of nutrition caused by eating fresh fruits and vegetables. Therefore, the proportion of fruits and vegetables in the diet should be appropriately increased in the diet to get enough vitamins and inorganic salts.
Cabbage, rapeseed, bell pepper, tomato and other fresh vegetables and citrus, lemon and other fruits add vitamin C, have anti-viral effect; carrots, leeks and other yellow-green vegetables, vitamin A, has the role of protecting and enhancing the upper respiratory tract mucosa and respiratory organsThe function of the cells can enhance the invasion against various pathogenic factors; foods supplemented with vitamin E should also be eaten to improve the body’s immune function and enhance the body’s disease resistance.
The kinds of foods include sesame, cyan cabbage, cauliflower and the like.
In addition, from the point of view of scientific diet, the relative proportion of protein, small amount, and a small amount of nutrient substitutions should be added in the spring to enhance the resistance, prevent overeating, and avoid causing liver dysfunction and abnormal bile secretion.
Principle 3: The diet should be light, avoid greasy, cold and irritating food.
In the spring, the thick taste of the winter should be changed to mild and plain. In animal foods, high-fat foods such as fat meat should be eaten. Because the greasy food is easy to produce fullness after eating, the human body will also experience fatigue.
Diet should be warm, avoid cold.
People with stomach cold can often eat some ginger to drive the cold and warm the stomach.
Principle 4: The spring diet should save money and increase temper.
The famous doctor of the Tang Dynasty, Sun Sizhen, said: “Spring is good for saving acid and increasing sweetness to raise temper.
“The meaning is that when spring comes, people should eat less sour food and eat more sweet foods, so the benefit is to replenish the spleen and stomach of the human body.
Spring is the liver gas, according to the theory of Chinese medicine five elements, liver is wood, spleen is soil, soil and wood grams, that is, liver can damage the spleen, affecting the digestive function of the spleen.
And Chinese medicine believes that the five flavors into the five internal organs, and the acid into the liver, into the spleen, so if you eat more sour food, it will enhance the function of the liver, so that the liver is more prone to hemiplegia, this will hurt the spleen and stomach.
In view of this, the spring diet nursed back to health, should choose Gan Wenzhi products, avoid acid and phlegm, mainly to replenish temper, so you can eat more jujube, yam, casserole and so on.
Principle 5: According to the individual’s physical condition and condition, the food is supplemented.
The motherland medicine proposed that “spring health needs food supplement.”
However, according to the characteristics of the yang yang in the spring, it is necessary to choose the diet that is flat and clear, so as not to be counterproductive.
The following types of people are most suitable for spring tonic: middle-aged and elderly people have premature aging; and various chronic diseases and body shape are thin; backache, dizziness, sallow complexion, and mental wilting; spring climate change is large, easy to catch cold after being cold;In the past, there was a history of acute attacks in the spring, but now the author has not been sent; in the summer there are people with low fever in the summer.
Those who belong to the above situation, conservative use of the spring season, according to personal physique and condition, choose the appropriate food supplement method to prevent and cure diseases.
The details are as follows: 1 If the elderly have yin deficiency and internal heat, they can use the method of clearing.
Kinds of foods include pears, lotus roots, leeks, lilies, turtles, snails, etc.
These foods are cold in food and have a heat-clearing effect after eating, which helps to improve the bad constitution.
2 Deficiency of the body, you can eat more walnuts, sputum and other foods; 3 heavy humidity, when eating wet food, such as dried lotus leaves, lotus seeds and so on.
4 For children, the elderly, usually or boil some orange peel, radish, pear or jingle tea, can be gasified, heat, lungs, protect the respiratory tract.
5 old-age tonic in the recovery period or after the recovery period, generally should be cool, plain, delicious, easy to digest food, rice porridge, glutinous rice porridge, red bean porridge, lotus porridge, green vegetable puree, fluffy pineWait.Avoid eating too sweet, fried, cold and non-digestible foods to avoid damage to the damaged function.
Principle 6: It is difficult to buy spring to vent, and the fat-removing detoxification is at the time.
Throughout the winter, most people are in a state of stagnation: they live in a simple state, reduce their exercise, and prefer foods that are rich in taste. In the winter, a small amount of small amounts and toxins accumulate in the body.
The old saying goes: “It is difficult to buy spring to vent,” meaning that “the spring cellulite detoxification is at the time.”
One thing here is that don’t blindly believe in folk detoxification drugs. In fact, simple apples and fresh milk have very good detoxification effects.
Please get up in the morning to have a cup of fresh milk and eat an apple.
Mild and beneficial, but also detoxification effect.
Other fruits, such as strawberries, cherries, and grapes, also have good detoxification effects.
There is also kelp mung bean soup, because the glial components in kelp can promote the discharge of toxic substances in the body, mung bean is cold and cold, can clear away heat and detoxification, so, this soup, toxins will naturally be discharged through the urine.
It’s good to have a good soup, and you don’t need to vent so hard, try it out!
