Different types of people with cold limbs
Many people think that they should nourish the body during winter. They may eat too much lamb brisket pot, sesame oil chicken, herbal chicken hot pot and so on. Ladies who have cold limbs may have Chinese red date tea with angelica root or ginger tea with longan every day, but quickly find that their symptoms do not improve and have sore throat, indigestion, nausea and vomiting, and constipation. These are due to asthenic body types not tolerating tonic foods. Deficiency in Chinese medicine theory is divided into: qi deficiency, blood deficiency, yin deficiency, and yang deficiency. It is pointless to have tonic foods at random if you are not sure which type of deficiency you have. If the spleen and stomach are malfunctioning, you will only worsen the symptoms. Tonic foods are mostly nourishing, they will increase the burden on the spleen and stomach.
If you want to improve your body symptoms, it is recommended to consult a registered Chinese medicine practitioner first to understand the state and causes of body weakness, and then adjust slowly according to the season and body condition. In the winter, there are many reasons for cold limbs. It may be due to yang deficiency (aversion to cold), as lack of yang qi cannot keep your limbs warm. People with qi stagnation (stressful and busy lifestyle) as yang qi cannot be extended throughout the body. It may also be cool blood stagnation due to preference of cold/raw food, or catching a cold can cause cold limbs.
