Soup to strengthen up and moisten the lungs
Upper respiratory tract infection generally refers to infection that happens along the nose and the throat, and it is normally caused by viruses.
According to Chinese medicine theories, individuals with weak lungs qi are more susceptible to upper respiratory diseases. This is because the lungs are located higher than other internal organs, and they provide the first line of defense against all pathogenic factors.
Since the lungs govern the qi of the body, it is important for us to take good care of the lungs to improve the vital qi in our body. With sufficient vital qi, we can prevent the pathogenic qi from invading the body. Hence, we should drink an appropriate amount of soup that can strengthen and moisten the lungs.
