【流感高峰期】防流感偏方消息滿天飛

#聽說多吃辣椒蒜頭抗流感但身體偏熱易上火
#煲醋抗菌方法都不可取
#星期三問題多多

保持喉嚨濕潤抗流感?
市民張先生:「最近手機瘋傳一則轉發訊息,指保持喉嚨黏膜濕潤可以預防流感,喉嚨一乾10分鐘病毒就能侵入身體,我可不想染上流感,所以最近流感高峰期我不斷喝水,但不停上廁所又很麻煩。」

CheckCheckCin:每天喝足夠的水是一件好事,但光靠喝水並不能預防流感,而且訊息裡說「喉嚨一乾10分鐘病毒就能侵入身體」就更誇張失實了。從中醫角度來說,流感屬感冒範疇,因為四時不正之氣侵襲人體,想預防流感,中醫有個說法是「正氣存內,邪不可干」,意思是身體裡有足夠的正氣,邪氣就不能乘虛而入,所以防流感重點是提升身體機能及強身防病,其實只要簡單地每天飲用米水就可健脾胃,強身健體,中醫理論認為「脾胃為後天之本」、「脾為氣血生化之源」,養好脾胃,等於養好消化系統,才可好好吸收食物中的營養,濡養身體,為健康打好基礎。

簡易強身米水
材料:紅米2湯匙、白米半湯匙、生薏米半湯匙
做法:將材料洗淨,鍋內加入約800-1000毫升水,加入材料,以武火煮滾後調文火煮20-30分鐘。
*米水容易變壞,建議每天煲好,一天飲完,不要過夜。
*孕婦可不加薏米。
*糖尿病人飲用前要先諮詢營養師。

Keep your throat moist to protect against flu?
There have been mass messages about keeping the throat moist to protect against influenza and how a throat being dried for 10 minutes can allow pathogens to attack. I don’t want to get the flu so I have been drinking a lot of water, but going to the bathroom nonstop is a bit much too.
CheckCheckCin: Drinking enough water is a good thing but it is not enough to protect against influenza. The message regarding dry throat for 10 minutes and pathogens is quite exaggerated. From Chinese medicine perspective, influenza is a type of flu and it attacks seasonally. Chinese medicine believe that if there is enough strong qi in the body, pathogens cannot easily attack. To protect against influenza, it is important to keep a healthy body and immunity. Drinking rice water daily can help to strengthen the spleen and stomach. Chinese medicine believes spleen is the basis of health so keep your spleen and stomach healthy. You will achieve a healthy digestive system and properly absorb nutrients from food.
Simple Rice Water to Strengthen Health
Ingredients: 2 tablespoons red rice, half tablespoon white rice, half table spoon coix seeds
Preparation: Rinse all ingredients thoroughly and combine with 800-1000ml water. Cook on high heat until boiling, and simmer to low heat for 20-30 minutes.
*Rice water spoils easily. You should cook fresh daily and consume within the day and do not store overnight.
*For pregnant ladies, do not add coix seeds.
*For those with diabetes, consult a nutritionist.
