Health care in summer needs to clear inner fire first

    When the weather is hot, the yang of the heart is particularly exuberant, which is prone to turning into inner heat or fire. If the diet is not appropriate, be it excessive drinking or spicy foods, it is more likely to cause inner fire. The result is either slight discomfort, or a serious disease. Therefore, health care in summer should first clear inner fire, and remember five words in heart: bitter, moist, gentle, unblocked, and stable.

    Diet should be "bitter" and "moist". Traditional Chinese medicine believes that bitter and cold foods can clear up inner heat and dampness, strengthen spleen function and help reduce inner humidity. It is recommended to eat more balsam pear, lotus seed, celery, lettuce, chrysanthemum etc. As people sweat a lot in summer, which easily leads to over consumption of qi and body fluid, apart from clearing inner fire, it is better to eat such foods as dendrobium, pear, waxberry, lotus root etc. which helps relieve body thirst and generate body fluid.  

    Exercising should be "gentle". Sweating too much in summer can lead to over consumption of qi and body fluid, which can further cause dizziness, chest tightness, heart palpitations, thirst,or even coma. Therefore, it is advisable to do such “gentle”aerobic exercises as jogging, walking, Taiji boxing and exercising to radio music.

    Main and collateral channels should be “unblocked”. Apart from clearing inner fire, it is suggested to use the method of scraping to decrease inner humidity. Hold the scraping plate with the thin edge towards the palm and the thick edge as the pressure point, and keep moving it in a circular motion with gradually increased and then decreased strength. It is usually performed on the back with a little vaseline or vegetable oil smeared on beforehand. Each scraping takes about 20~30 takes or 5~10 minutes and should be done no more than once a week.

    Emotions are better to be "stable". In the summer sultry,people’s sleep quality usually declines and mood fluctuates. Therefore, in summer, it is advisable to calm the mind, adjust the breath and seek inner peace. The saying that "Calm the mind and you’ll be naturally cool" states the truth.

    Clearing inner fire in summer is not suitable to all. Those who have weak body and low temperature or are afraid of coldness, should be careful with it. When clearing inner fire, it is also important to differentiate between groups,for example, females who thinks too much should clear mainly heart and liver fire; males that smokes or drinks a lot would want to clear lung and stomach fire; frail old people should pay special attention to kidney and lung fire.
