Do you have a dry mouth? A sore back? A tickle at the back of your throat? While you might not have a specific illness like a cold or the flu, your health might not necessarily be at its best either. That’s why we look to preventative care because Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is all about balance and harmony in the body. Eu Yan Sang TCM Clinic is giving us the low-down on what to look out for as signs of sub health, plus a perk just for Honeycombers readers, so keep scrolling!
If you find yourself tossing and turning at night, TCM says that it might be a sign of too much yang or too little yin energy in the heart’s system. This results in excess heat that disrupts your mind, body and ability to function well at work and at home.
Now, this doesn’t just mean you have a bad temper by nature. Feeling stressed all the time might mean you have a stagnant Qi in the liver, which prevents the liver from functioning well and regulating your emotions.
Wake up in the morning and find your nose running? This, along with symptoms like shortness of breath and sweating easily, might suggest that you have a deficiency in Lung Qi.
Overconsumption of junk food and cold drinks, as well as an irregular eating schedule could cause spleen deficiency. This leads to problems with the digestive system like constipation, bloating and gastric pain.
If you’re running to the bathroom a lot and have lower back pain, your kidney might have issues that need healing.
We know, it’s not a pleasant feeling to see a bunch of hair on the floor after a shower or blow drying your hair. But TCM has the answers: apparently, it’s probably due to deficiencies in the kidney and liver.
To restore a person’s balance, a physician may recommend treatments or diet and lifestyle changes that target specific TCM organs. Here are some possible remedies:
If you have a problem caused by Heart Fire, you can use lotus seed core to make tea and sleep earlier. For problem caused by Liver Heat, you can look to cooling teas such as Chrysanthemum. Those with kidney and liver deficiencies would benefit from Fleeceflower Root, while those who have weak spleen can consume Chinese yam, and avoid cold and raw food.
If sub-health symptoms persist or cause concern, you can seek advice from a qualified TCM physician from Eu Yan Sang TCM Clinic. He or she can help diagnose the root problem, as one symptom can have multiple possible causes. Depending on the nature of the problem, the physician may suggest treatments such as cupping and acupuncture, or make specific lifestyle recommendations.
