花旗參緩解熬夜虛熱
香港地不少人都患上「晚睡強逼症」,因為忙碌了一天,晚上的私人時光格外珍貴,總想多做幾件事,結果熬夜缺睡不但會導致精神緊張及心情煩躁,中醫理論認為熬夜會傷「陰」,「陰」氣不足令陽氣相對偏盛,造成陰虛,身體就會出現虛熱症狀,包括口渴、出口瘡、咽喉痛等等。當出現以上症狀時,很多人會以為自己「熱氣」,喝涼茶清熱會削減陽氣,結果陰陽俱虛,其實滋陰才是治本之法。
中醫認為花旗參有補氣養陰、清虛火、生津止渴的功效,能紓緩熬夜晚睡引致的心煩口渴、小便量少色黃、大便偏乾、口乾等虛熱症狀,而且亦有解酒、抗疲勞及增強免疫力作用。簡單用花旗參片沖水當茶喝,或者配合其它食材煲湯作食療亦可。惟注意因為屬性寒涼,虛寒體質、有胃寒胃痛、舌苔發白者不宜食用。

滋陰潤燥湯水小貼士:
適當地添加滋陰潤燥食材如雪梨、雪耳、沙參、玉竹、百合、麥冬、枸杞子等。

American Ginseng for night owls
Many people in Hong Kong have frequent late nights. As they usually have busy days, private time at night is quite precious, and they always want to do more things. Staying up late and not having adequate sleep can not only lead to mental stress and irritability, but Chinese medicine believes that staying up late will hurt yin. Lack of yin can lead to overactive yang qi, causing yin deficiency and you may experience symptoms of asthenic heat such as excessive thirst, canker sore, sore throat. Some may mistakenly believe they have heat and drink herbal tea to clear heat. This further reduces yang qi, leading to both yin and yang deficiency. In reality, nourishing yin is the right thing to do. 
Chinese medicine believes that American ginseng has the effects of replenishing qi, nourishing yin, clearing asthenic fire, promoting fluid production and relieving thirst. It can relieve late night induced asthenic heat symptoms such as irritability, thirst, low volume and yellow urination, dried stools and dry mouth. It can help to sober up, fight fatigue and enhance immunity. Simply brew the American Ginseng slices or combine it with other ingredients to make soup.

Tips for soup to nourish yin and relieve dryness:
