Warm water bag is a kind of heating tool used by people in the past. With the popularity of heating, warm water bag gradually withdrew from the stage of history. But we don’t know that in addition to heating, warm water bag has many wonderful effects in the field of health care. Recently, it’s freezing in Guangzhou. Many people choose to stay at home. It’s better to try the warm water bag as a health physiotherapy.
Kuang Xiuying, deputy director of the preventive treatment department of the First Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou University of traditional Chinese medicine, said that the balance of Qi and blood distribution and the harmony of yin and Yang will prevent people from getting sick; the imbalance of Qi and blood distribution, such as qi stagnation, blood stasis, cold coagulation and phlegm obstruction, will lead to blockage of meridians and excessive or deficient viscera function, which will lead to various problems in the body. The common manifestations are pain and numbness of limbs, insomnia, drowsiness, fear of cold, etc. Because there are many channels and acupoints in the human body, traditional Chinese medicine often uses hyperthermia to help adjust the balance of Qi and blood, so as to improve the body state. Warm water bag, played the role of hyperthermia.
Apply on the back to relieve cough
Xu Hongwei, a doctor in the Department of preventive treatment of the First Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou University of traditional Chinese medicine, said that traditional Chinese medicine believes that cough is mostly caused by lung diseases and belongs to Shangjiao disease. The lung dominates the skin and hair. When the human body is attacked by external pathogens, it is easy to damage the lung, resulting in the retention of evil Qi in the lung and causing cough. The healthy qi of the old and frail people is insufficient, and the bad habits of the young people, such as cold diet and staying up late, lead to the consumption of healthy qi, which makes it difficult to heal once the evil Qi goes deep. In this case, the hot water bag can be used to warm the back meridians, stimulate the back Feishu, Fengmen, Dazhui, Dingchuan and other acupoints to resist cold and eliminate pathogenic factors, phlegm and cough.
Specific operation method: lie prone, put a warm water bag between the neck and back two scapulae, the temperature is moderate, do not be too hot. Once the temperature has cooled, change the hot water immediately, and apply it for 15-30 minutes each time. After the hot compress, if there is slight perspiration, wipe it dry and keep warm in time to prevent the evil spirit from entering again.
Apply neck to help sleep
Kuang Xiuying said that Qi and blood in the neck supply the brain, which can nourish the heart and mind and improve the quality of sleep. If the neck blood supply is not good or the meridians are not unobstructed, the Qi and blood can not flow naturally, which is easy to cause insomnia. There is an acupuncture point in the occipital region called Anmian. Hot compress can improve the local Qi and blood state, promote the blood supply to the brain, relieve the tension of neck muscles, and achieve the effect of helping sleep.
Specific operation method: go to pillow and lie on your back, put the warm water bag on the neck pillow for about 20 minutes each time, and pay attention to keep the neck warm after the end to prevent wind.
Apply navel to regulate qi and blood
The navel is the channel for the body to connect with the congenital. The acupoint of traditional Chinese medicine is called Shenque. Hot compress can regulate the kidney meridian of foot Shaoyin and stomach meridian of Foot Yangming. At the same time, the spleen and stomach is the foundation of postnatal, which is the source of Qi and blood biochemistry. Hot compress on navel can regulate the function of spleen and stomach, promote digestion, absorption and excretion, and improve the blood circulation of the whole body. In addition, the location of the navel is Zhongjiao. The five elements of the spleen and stomach of Zhongjiao belong to the earth, which is the central axle of the human body’s Qi mechanism. If the axis of the spleen and stomach of Zhongjiao runs smoothly, it can promote the normal Qi mechanism of other viscera functions, and all diseases will not occur.
Specific operation method: put the warm water bag on the navel, hold the warm water bag close to the belly for light and slow kneading, so as to make the heat penetrate into the deep part. The appropriate time for each hot compress is 10-15 minutes, and it can be reused 2-3 times a day. Before and after umbilical should avoid eating cold. Cold food abdominal pain, dysmenorrhea, diarrhea, constipation, cold hands and feet and other people can use the method. (reporter Chen Hui, correspondent Liu Qingjun)
