Autumn soup to nourish the qi and strengthen the spleen
Autumn is the best time to take care of the lungs as the season is closely related to the organ. The dry autumn weather might hurt the yin of the lungs, hence causing individuals to experience dry mouth, dry nasal passage and dry cough.
Individuals with the lack of qi in the lungs might experience cough, excessive sweating, aversion to cold and fatigue repeatedly, and they might even experience shortness of breath and dizziness during low intensity activities such as hiking. Therefore, it is important to take good care of the lungs.
Consume food that can nourish the qi and strengthen the spleen, such as ginseng, American ginseng, Chinese yam, Astragalus root, carrot, and Chinese yam. Have a light diet, drink more warm water, and avoid heavy flavoured and spicy food. Massage the ‘san li’ acupoint regularly, as it is beneficial for the qi, and can improve the Meridian’s circulation, invigorate the qi and the blood, as well as the circulation.
Appropriately add in ingredients such as lingzhi, codonopsis root, palm fruit, chestnut etc.
