夏至來了!

#夏至
#養護陽氣
#全年白晝時間最長的一天

夏至來到,代表進入炎熱季節,多雷陣雨。中醫認為「夏養心」及「心通於夏氣」,夏天心火當令,宜多吃鹹味以補心,例如海蜇、海帶、花蛤等,夏天出汗多,鹹味食物正好補充失去之鹽分;亦宜多吃酸味以固表(加強機體防護功能),例如番茄、木瓜、葡萄、菠蘿等。飲食宜清淡不宜肥甘厚味,不要貪一時之涼快多吃生冷食物,除了會令脾胃功能受損,亦容易患上腸胃疾病。
夏天做適量運動有助養護陽氣,但天氣炎熱,所以最好選擇清晨或傍晚時進行強度小的運動,例如散步、慢跑、太極拳等,運動後多飲用開水或淡鹽水補充水份,水溫不宜太過冰凍。

溫馨提示:
.西瓜、涼拌菜可消暑,但要適可宜止啊
.每日飲米水,健脾又祛濕
.運動後不要急著沖凍水涼

Summer Solstice is here!
This signifies the hot season is here which can bring more thunderstorms. Chinese medicine believes “summer nourishes heart” and “heart flows in summer qi”. The heart fire is strong in the summer. It is better to eat more salty food such as jellyfish, seaweed and venus clam to nourish heart. As you sweat more in the summer, salty food can supply the lost salt. You can also eat more sour food like tomato, papaya, grape and pineapple, to enhance the body protection function. Your diet should be light and not oily nor fatty. Do not over consume cold/raw food just because it is hot. Otherwise, your spleen and stomach functions may be affected which can lead to abdominal issues.
Do moderate exercise in the summer to nourish yang qi. As the weather is hot, it is better to do low-intensity exercise such as walking, jogging or Tai Chi in early morning or evening. Have water or light salt water to replenish body fluids. The temperature of water should not be too cold.
Gentle reminders:
.Eat watermelon, cold side dishes in moderation.
.Have rice water daily to strengthen spleen and dispel dampness.
.Do not take a cold shower right after exercising.
