I recommend you to take 【 mutton 】 when your body feels cold.
The entire nation of Japan is freezing after the extreme cold wave hit.
It is such a heavy toll to bear for people who are sensitive to cold.
Hiesho (cold disorder) is a pathological concept unique to Japan, which is generally defined as “the long-term condition of having an extraordinary cold sensation in one’s parts of the body under a temperature ordinary people do not feel any distress.
” It is a very foreign concept for the west, but Traditional Chinese Medicine divides this condition by its cause into 5 types.
①Disturbed flow of water, ②disturbed flow of qi, ③lack of qi and blood, ④disturbed spleen, ⑤disturbed kidney.
Let me explain the 【disturbed flow of water】type Hie(cold sensation).
If you feel cold in the lower half of your body, have swollen lower half of your body, feel sluggish, have diarrhea often, have a difficult time during the rainy season or a rainy day, have pain in joints when it’s cold, have watery stomach, have an increased amount of sticky vaginal discharge, your Hie might be the disturbed flow of water type.
The disturbed flow of water creates excess water causing your body to cool down.
Take food with “lì shuǐ(drain dampness)” effects to discharge excess water, cooling your body and improving the water metabolism.
On the other hand, water metabolism slows down when your body gets cold.
So, warming your body and removing the cold can improve water metabolism.
