Spring mood, easy to run away;
The stomach in spring, too, can easily get out of control ...
Why do you say that?
Our stomach is like a blender, which can accept food, grind it initially, digest it, upgrade it by the spleen, and finally turn it into nutrients/water valley subtly transport it to the whole body.
Not only that, but the stomach and intestine are the second brain of human beings, and our stomach is an emotional organ.
There's an earthy saying, "My stomach likes you too."
Eating with people you like and in a pleasing environment is in a good mood and appetite.
There is a word called "bad appetite", which is a metaphor for the boredom of things, which affects appetite.
In modern society, "ten people and nine stomachs", stomach flatulence, stomach pain, indigestion and other problems abound.
Gastrointestinal disorders are closely related to mood.
When the mental pressure is high, the work is tense, and it is easy to have problems such as bloating, abdominal pain, and inability to eat.
When the mood is impatient and the liver is hot, the gastrointestinal peristalsis slows down, and the digestion and absorption deteriorate. This is also what our Chinese medicine calls "liver fire against the stomach", the stomach's qi machine is running abnormally, prone to indigestion, stomach fullness and even pain, hiccups, vomiting, noisy acid swallowing, etc.
Therefore, spring should not only nourish the liver, regulate liver qi, relieve liver depression; It is also necessary to nourish the stomach and improve the body's ability to cope with changes.
The stomach loves a slow pace
If you want to nourish your stomach, you must first learn to control your emotions and give your stomach a relaxed and slow pace.
The pace of eating should be slowed down: do not eat too fast, chew slowly, let the food in the mouth and the liquid fully contact, improve the efficiency of initial digestion, which can reduce the burden on the stomach and intestines.
"Subtract" the stomach
To enhance gastric motility, we have to do subtraction to reduce the burden on the stomach.
1. "Less oil and salt"
Salt is metabolized by some and produces nitrite. Long-term consumption of high-oil and high-salt foods increases gastric irritation, hinders spleen and stomach mobilization, leads to chronic damage to the stomach, and even more serious problems.
2. "Less alcohol"
Drink pleasantly, indulge in alcohol and hurt your body. Long-term excessive alcohol has obvious damage to the digestive tract, and long-term chronic stimulation of the stomach by alcohol will also occur atrophy intestinalization, which will cause tumors in severe cases.
3. "Three meals rule"
Eat less raw cold, cold, spicy and stimulating things, eat three regular meals, eat seven or eight minutes full at each meal, and do not eat before going to bed, which can relieve the burden on the stomach to a certain extent.
Control the amount of meat, "fish for fire, meat for phlegm", phlegm fire blocks menstrual qi, eat too much meat, stomach is uncomfortable.
4. "Don't abuse drugs"
Usually, we may hear that medication will increase the burden on the liver and kidneys, but in fact, many drugs damage the stomach. People who usually have a bad stomach will feel stomach discomfort just after taking medicine, such as painkillers, antihypertensive drugs, calcium supplementation preparations, glucocorticoids, bitter cold Chinese medicine, etc.
So do not abuse drugs, use drugs correctly under the guidance of a doctor.
