Replenish yin to relieve burning sensation of the five centres
There is a phrase in Chinese that refers to ‘burning sensation of the five centres, but where exactly are these ‘five centres’? They actually refer to the left and right palms and soles of our feet, as well as our chest.
According to the Chinese medicine theories, these five centres are yin in nature, and if an individual is deficient of yin, his or her body will produce heat from within, causing the five centres to feel warm. Nevertheless, the body temperature may not increase. Individuals with this condition like to grab cool objects, as their palms are constantly giving out heat, and when they sleep, they tend to extend their hands and legs out of the blanket.
The burning sensation of the five centres is often caused by frequent late nights, obsession with spicy food, emotional distress, menopause and stagnant heat in the body during the post-surgery period, and the feeling often happens to individuals with yin deficiency. As the body remains constantly dehydrated, other related symptoms such as dry mouth and tongue, dry skin, constipation and insomnia will also become apparent.
In order to improve such condition, do consume food that will nourish the yin, for instance, snow fungus, glehnia root, lily bulb, dendrobium and American ginseng; cut down on spicy, deep-fried and greasy food, and cultivate the habit of sleeping early, as it can help relieve symptoms caused by the yin deficiency.
