Health care refers to “three-point adjustment, seven-point maintenance”, which means that when the internal organs of the human body are imbalanced, although special foods, health products or medicines can be used for recuperation, it can have a certain effect.Develop good habits in sleep, diet, emotions, exercise and other aspects, so that the body can restore balance and maintain balance as soon as possible.
If you want the balance between the internal organs and the body to be healthy, you must conform to the natural laws of the heavens and the earth.Years, to go hundred years old! ”
First, the nature of sleep 1.
During the Warring States Period, the famous doctor Wen Zhizhang said: “My health regime puts sleep first. People and animals can only grow when they sleep. Sleep helps the spleen and stomach digest food.
Therefore, sleep is the first major supplement for health. If a person does not sleep one night, the loss of one hundred days is difficult to recover.
Li Yu, a medical doctor in the Qing Dynasty, once pointed out: “The secret to health is to put sleep first.
Sleep can regenerate, sleep can nourish qi, sleep can strengthen the spleen and stomach, sleep can strengthen bones.
People often say: “Medicine is not as good as food, but food is not as good as sleep.
“People must follow the rules of nature and follow the sun. When they wake up, I wake up, when I sleep, I sleep, and develop the habit of going to bed early and getting up early. Don’t face the sun.
Second, what is the misunderstanding of sleep in modern people?
The reason why most people find it difficult to develop the habit of going to bed early and getting up early, in addition to some people’s own bad sleeping habits, there are many misunderstandings about sleep: 1.
Some people think that as long as they sleep for seven or seven hours a day, it doesn’t matter that they stay up late at night, and make up sleep during the day.
Many people fall asleep or sleep poorly, only knowing that they will feel mentally exhausted the next day, and they don’t know how much it will hurt the body.
Many people think that insomnia and difficulty in falling asleep are only a small problem. It is enough to take a few tablets of sleeping pills. They don’t think that it is caused by the imbalance of internal organs.
Some people like to read books and write articles at night. They feel quiet after 23 o’clock, and they are also very energetic and efficient.
In order to get out of the above several misunderstandings about sleep, we must first know the harm of bad sleep habits to the human body and when sleep is good for health.
Third, long-term late sleep or lack of sleep has some kind of harm to the body?
9pm to 3am is the best time to nourish the liver and gall.
If a person does not sleep when he bears a child (23-1 am), he will hurt the gall and liver.
The initial manifestations are dark circles, dry eyes, tiredness, depression, dizziness, headache, mental fatigue, and inattention. Serious imbalances and various complications will occur.
Eye diseases: The liver is open to the eye. If you do not sleep, you may cause liver deficiency, blurred vision, presbyopia, and tears in the wind, and then form eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataract, fundus arteriosclerosis, and retinopathy.
(So there are eye problems, usually caused by liver problems) 2.
Bleeding Symptoms: The liver has blood in the liver, which regulates blood functions. If you don’t sleep during childbirth, it will cause insufficient blood in the liver, which will cause vomiting, nosebleeds, subcutaneous bleeding, gum bleeding, fundus bleeding, ear bleeding and other bleeding symptoms.
Liver and gallbladder diseases: bile should be replaced when the child is bile, if the person is not sleeping when the bile is strong, bile replacement is unfavorable, too thick and crystallized into stones, gallstones are obtained over time.
At present, an average of about 5 people in Guangzhou have a carrier of hepatitis B virus, mostly because they violated the laws of nature and did not go to bed when they had passed their birth.
Carrying HBV means that 40% to 60% of them will become cirrhotic in the future, and severe cases will form liver cancer.
Emotional diseases: It ‘s easy to lose courage when you do n’t sleep when you have a child. The Yellow Emperor’s Canon of Inner Life tells you to “strengthen your guts”. When a person with guts is weak, it is easy to prevent uneasiness.Problems, even hate the world, and commit suicide.
Nowadays, adolescents suffer from depression and even suicide. Most of them are hurting their liver and gall due to staying up late.
(So depression, anxiety, etc. can’t just look for psychological factors, psychological abnormalities often come from physiological imbalances) 5.
Cardiovascular disease: Not sleeping when you have a child can cause liver blood deficiency.Due to the blood flow of the main body of the heart, the function of the liver to store and regulate blood is impaired, which can lead to insufficient blood supply to the heart, leading to cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases such as hypertension.
Regarding the lungs: do not sleep when passing birth, unable to nourish Yin Qianyang, rupture of liver and yin, cause liver fire and burn the lungs, dry cough or cough, coughing blood and other symptoms of wood fire punishment, and easily lead to various skin diseases such as psoriasis.
(A cold is sometimes not a simple cold or wind. It may take a lot of days to take a medicine or an injection or even an infusion. A cold can be cured as long as the liver is replenished and the liver fire is reduced.
The lungs are mainly fur, and many skin diseases can not be cured by applying ointment, it is only a cure for the symptoms, not the root cause, and the liver problem must be solved).
Kidney: Hai, Zi, Ugly (21: 00-3) is a day of winter.
Spring, summer, autumn, and winter harvest, winter should be kidney, kidney kidney essence, liver and kidney are similar, liver failure, kidney qi is easily consumed if you do not sleep, and thus easily cause osteoporosis, diabetes, kidney failure, infertilityIllness will be affected severely.
Habitual abortion: Most of the habitual abortions of women are caused by men. Most of these men sleep for more than zero, and the liver damage is too heavy.
The liver is a wood in the five elements, the wood is not strong, the sperm is typically weak seeds, the rooting force is weak, and the protein easily slips off.
When is sleep good for health?
9 pm to 3 am is the effective sleep time and the best sleep time.
Sleep less than half an hour at night (21: 00-3pm), and sleep more than 3 hours during the day will not make up.
Therefore, it is recommended that everyone grasp the effective sleep time, it is best to go to bed at 9 o’clock in the evening, and do not exceed 10:30 at the latest.
At 21 o’clock to 23 o’clock every day, the San Jiao Jing is the most prosperous and belongs to the Shao Yang San Jiao Jing, “San Jiao Tong Bai Mai”. When 23 to 1 o’clock, the bile meridian is the most prosperous and belongs to the foot Shaoyang bile meridian.
One is Hand Shaoyang and the other is Foot Shaoyang.
What is Shaoyang?
Shaoyang is the rising sun!
Only when the person enters the actual sleep state before 23:00, can Shaoyang be sufficient, the human body’s sun can rise, and it can have a good physical and mental state.
Most centenarians go to bed before 9 in the evening.
When 1:00 to 3:00 am is ugly, the liver is the most prosperous.
“The Yellow Emperor’s Canon” says that “when you lie down, the blood belongs to the liver”, and the liver nourishes, and the best time to produce blood is 21:00 to 3 am.
If a person stays up late every day until 1 o’clock, the liver cannot return blood, toxic blood can not be drained, fresh blood cannot be produced, and the human organs cannot get the blood and nourishment, which is very easy to cause imbalance and cause disease.
Five, how can we ensure good sleep?
There are various causes of insomnia, but the fundamental reason is that the physical body is unbalanced.
In order to ensure good sleep, you need to do the “five nos” before going to bed: 1.
But satiety: Chinese medicine says “stomach disharmony makes you sleepy”, because people need to rest at night, and the spleen and stomach also need to rest. Oversatisfaction at dinner will increase the burden on the spleen and stomach, disturb the spleen and stomach yang, and affect sleep.
Therefore, dinner should be full for seven or eight minutes, and as light as possible to protect the spleen and stomach Qingyang.
But not moving: It is not appropriate to disturb the yang by sleeping exercise before bedtime, including watching TV, talking and chatting before bedtime.
And the radiation of televisions, stereos and other electrical appliances itself will interfere with the body’s autonomic nerves.
Therefore, it is not advisable to do whole body exercise, watching TV, chatting, etc. for half an hour before going to bed.
But thinking: the spleen is thinking, thinking more about hurting the spleen, and thinking more easily disturbs the mind.
Thinking, movement is yang, stillness, sleep is yin.
Therefore, it is advisable to raise your mind quietly before going to bed, so as to “sleep first and then sleep your eyes” to help the yang into the yin to facilitate sleep.
4.However, the point is that after 11 pm, the gallbladder is opened, and people can easily fall asleep, and it is easy to dissipate liver and gallbladder gas, causing external evil to invade the body.
Therefore, it is best to go to bed at 21:00 and no later than 22:30.
Infinite Wind: Wind is the beginning of all diseases, and it is pervasive.
Sleep at night and open the window, open the air conditioner, etc., which will blow off the Yang’s body surface. After the blowing, the Yang will regenerate, and after the regeneration, it will be blown away by wind.More tired.
Therefore, doors and windows and air conditioners should be closed before bedtime to protect the body’s yang.
Six, develop a good habit of going to bed early and getting up early.
Be sure to get up early in the morning, even if it is not winter past 6 o’clock, try to get up before 5 o’clock in spring, summer and autumn.
(Young people estimate that not much can be done).
When a person wakes up during Yinxian (3-5 o’clock) when the lungs are strong, the lungs can be stretched and stretched to adapt to the growth of yang. This helps to raise the lungs and raise the yang of the human body in line with the sunTo make one day full of yang.
5-7 o’clock is the most prosperous period of the human large intestine, the human body needs to excrete the metabolic turbidity.
From 7 to 9 o’clock, the human stomach is the most prosperous (so breakfast must be eaten), and from 9 to 11 o’clock the spleen is the most prosperous. At this time, the human’s ability to digest and absorb is the best.
So don’t go to bed.
In addition, getting up early can increase work efficiency, as the saying goes: “Get up early in three days and work one day.
“Modern medicine has proven that people who go to bed early and get up early have less mental stress and are less susceptible to mental illness.
