What does ‘dampness in body’ mean?
Many Hong Kong folks often say they suffer from heavy dampness in the body, but what does it really mean? The dampness pathogen is one of the six evils in the Chinese Traditional Medicine theories (wind, cold, heat, damp, dryness, and summer heat).
Dampness refers to the stagnation of dampness in the body. If a person has had enough hours of sleep but still experiences fatigue, chest tightness, appetite loss, produces sweat that feels sticky; with loose muscles and plump-looking, has water retention problem, and produces loose stools that stick to toilet bowl, these symptoms indicate dampness in the body.
Eating raw and cold food, deep-fried and heavily seasoned food, having irregular meals and overthinking would disrupt the functions of the spleen and its transportation function, causing dampness to stagnate in the body, hence developing symptoms of dampness.
In order to get rid of dampness, make some changes in your lifestyle. Eat more food that will strengthen the spleen and eliminate dampness, such as barley, Chinese yam, black-eyed pea and poria; eat more coarse grains such as sweet potato, potato, rice, and Chinese yam; avoid eating food that are raw and cold, as well as those that are overly sweet and nourishing; exercise more often; massage Zu San Li acupoint on a daily; drink a cup of rice water daily to help strengthen the spleen and eliminate dampness from the body.
