飲感冒茶前還是要配合體質。

#感冒茶唔好亂飲

不少傳統派媽媽一知道仔女們有咳嗽、發燒跡象時就會叫人飲感冒茶或盒仔茶,但其實內裡有甚麼藥材你又未必太清楚。是藥三分毒,涼茶舖的感冒茶多以寒涼的藥材為主,如金銀花、牛蒡子、薄荷等,主要功效為疏散風熱,清熱解毒。如體內沒有感冒症狀,更不適宜飲用感冒茶作打底用。現成的感冒茶沖劑又稱為「盒仔茶」以驅散風寒為主,但單是感冒就已經分風寒、風熱、風濕、體虛感冒四大型。加上現代人生活及飲食習慣不良,體質相對複雜,同一個藥方難以適合所有人。假如你不清楚自己的感冒是因何而起,隨時會食錯藥,越食越虛弱。所以有不適還是乖乖去諮詢醫師,尤其是近期的流感如此厲害,還是盡早求醫。

When you feel a flu coming, always have some flu healing tea?
A lot of traditional moms immediately give their children flu healing tea as soon as they see any coughing or fevers appear, but what medicinal herbs are actually used in the formulas? Common flu healing teas use cold-natured herbs like honeysuckle, arctium, and mint, etc, and the main effects are to dispel wind and heat, clear heat to detox. If you are not experiencing any flu symptoms, then drinking flu healing tea as a preventative measure is not suitable. The common flu healing formulas also known as ‘boxed tea’ commonly focus on dispelling wind-chill, but there are actually four types of flus- wind chill, wind heat, wind dampness, and asthenic. In addition, people nowadays have poor dietary habits and lifestyle leading to different body constitutions which further complicates the issue, so a single flu formula would not be suitable for everyone. If you do not know the cause of your flu, it is easy to take the wrong medicine, which can make your body even weaker. It is still better to consult a Chinese medicine practitioner, especially during this summer flu peak season, seeing a professional earlier is recommended.
