Causes of swollen eyes
Some people look sleepy at work even if they wear makeup, as their eyes are always puffy when they wake up in the morning. Their double eyelids may even suddenly change to single eyelids! There are many causes of swollen eyes. Which of the following are you guilty of?
1. Sobbing while you watch korean drama
2. Have 2 cups of water before going bed

If you have swollen eyes even if you do not have above behaviour, you may have an asthenic spleen and dampness in body. Chinese medicine theory believes that the disorder of the lungs, spleen and kidneys will affect fluid transportation, dampness cannot be dispelled normally which leads to edema.
There are several quick methods to relieve swollen eyes, but in the long run, it is still necessary to improve the lung, spleen and kidney deficiency problems. This is especially true for those with spleen qi deficiency as they usually prefer cold/raw foods, sweet and thick sauced food, irregular diet time, and excessive thinking will harm the spleen and stomach. All this results in stagnation of dampness in the body and formation of edema. To improve the body condition, eat less raw/cold food first, and appropriately consume ingredients that can promote qi and strengthen the spleen such as white rice, potato, Chinese yam, lotus seed, coix seed, hyacinth bean. Drink a cup of rice water every day to strengthen the spleen and stomach.
