Drink arrowroot soup to relieve lower back pain and soreness
Spring has arrived, and my friend complained that his body could literally ‘tell the weather of the day’. This is because on rainy days, he will experience backache. Why would individuals who suffer from arthritis possess this kind of ‘supernatural’ ability?
Wind-dampness refers to both pathogenic factors of the wind and dampness. On rainy days, both pathogenic factors will become more abundant, stagnating the qi and the blood in the Meridians, hence aggravating the pain.
Chinese Medicine theories opine that the qi during spring connects with the liver, and the liver guards the tendons. Therefore, the spring season can easily trigger our old injuries. If you feel restless, have pain and soreness on your lower back and bones, and experience appetite loss, most probably they are associated with spring fatigue.
Try consuming an appropriate amount of arrowroot soup. Arrowroot can quench one’s thirst, induce saliva production, relieve the tendons, and invigorate the meridians. You can also add ingredients that can strengthen the spleen and eliminate dampness from the body. Rice beans and black-eyed pea are among the ingredients that can get rid of excess water from the body, hence keeping the body fresh and relaxed.
Tip on the ingredients:
Kudzu is cold in nature, can dispel heat, promote fluid production and relieve thirst, loosen tight tendons.
