The【disturbed flow of water type】depression
We’re almost done with the 4th state of emergency.
The statistics point out that the number of people suffering from medical depression and depressive disorder has double during COVID in Japan.
How’s your mental health?
Western medicine explains depression as a brain problem, but Traditional Chinese Medicine thinks it is a matter of balance of liver, water, and heart.
The TCM divides depression into three different types.
②Disturbed flow of water
③ Heart malfunction
Let me introduce you to the【disturbed flow of water type】depression out of three.
If you are feeling gloomy, your body feels heavy and lacks motivation, feels an occlusive feeling in the throat, dizzy, cough up phlegm, have a cold lower body, burp often, or overeat and over-drinking, your depression might be caused by the disturbed flow of water.
The disturbed flow of water could cause dullness in your body and break the balance of your heart.
Beware that stress-eating and stress-drinking often cause a disturbance to the water flow.
Urinating ingredients such as adzuki beans(red beans) and wax gourd and ingredients help discharge sticky moisture like phlegm accumulated by the slow water metabolism such as brown rice, and Japanese radish can help adjust your water balance.
Keep in mind that improving gastrointestinal function, urination, and bowels movements can be helpful for this type of depression.
These are the recommended ingredients for depression caused by the disturbed flow of water.
Adzuki beans, brown rice, burdock, grapefruits, orange, wax gourd, etc.
I hope this can relieve your constipation.
