Sweating is a natural phenomenon of the human body: when the outside temperature is too high, the body will sweat; when the nervous or painful stimuli will sweat the palms and feet; when eating certain stimulating foods, it will sweat on the face. However, in addition to these three types of conditions, attention should be paid to sweating or excessive sweating when you should not sweat.
Chinese medicine believes that normal sweating can regulate body temperature, remove waste from the body, and regulate the balance of yin and yang. When the body’s yin and yang are unbalanced and the organs are dysfunctional, abnormal sweating occurs. Therefore, traditional Chinese medicine often judges the body’s condition according to the time, location, amount and characteristics of sweating.
First, we must rule out whether it is caused by disease. In general, diabetes, alpha, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, hemiplegic spine trauma, tumors, tuberculosis, etc. will cause abnormal sweating, accompanied by obvious corresponding symptoms. In this case, the condition must be controlled in time, and then the sweating situation can be resolved. Of course, more cases are abnormal sweating without obvious disease symptoms. In summary, there are the following.
According to sweating time:
One is excessive sweating during the day. Regardless of winter and summer, in the case of inactivity or slight activity during the day, sweating often stops. These people often have the characteristics of weak body, low voice, poor appetite, and easy to catch cold. Chinese medicine thinks it is a manifestation of Qi deficiency. These people can choose yam, soy milk, beef and mutton, etc., or they can use codonopsis or Huangwu stewed chicken or coelombs to supplement the body and relieve qi deficiency. You can also enhance your physique through soothing movements and a combination of dynamic and static movements, such as practicing Taijiquan and Baduanjin.
The other is sweating at night. Sweating while sleeping, waking up to stop sweating, Chinese medicine is called “night sweats”. These people often have the characteristics of hot hands and feet, upset, redness and fever of the face, and dry oropharynx. Chinese medicine believes that it is a manifestation of Yin deficiency. This kind of people can choose lily, Sydney and other nourishing yin products. Eat less hot food such as lamb, onion, onion, ginger, garlic and so on. You can also drink it with bubble tea such as Adenophora, Ophiopogon japonicus, Schisandra chinensis or American ginseng.
According to sweating points:
One is excessive sweating, if you have excessive head and face sweating after overeating, and feel fullness of the upper abdomen, thirst, and do not want to eat, most of them accumulate food, which can be alleviated by reducing the amount of intake, eating a light diet, or eating a bit of digestion Medicine; if accompanied by heavy limb weakness, bloating discomfort, vomiting, body fever, thick tongue and yellow greasy, it is the manifestation of spleen and stomach with dampness and heat, should pay attention to light diet. It is normal for a child to experience slight head sweats during sleep; however, if accompanied by poor sleep, restlessness, easy to startle, and thin hair, etc., proper diagnosis and treatment should be timely. In addition, the elderly and post-partum women who are physically weak may also experience excessive sweating, which is mostly qi deficiency.
The second is sweating in the hands, feet, and feet. If the sweating in the feet and feet is accompanied by hot hands, feet, oropharynx, etc., it is mostly yin deficiency and heat. If there is a heat syndrome of fecal accumulation in the tract, laxatives can be taken; if there is sweating in the hands, feet and feet with dry mouth, dental pain, etc., it is mostly stomach fever. Clear stomach Huanglian nine.
The third is the heart socket and sweaty chest, which is more common in some mental workers. These people are often accompanied by mental burnout, loss of appetite, poor sleep, and dreaminess. , Tai Chi, Ba Duan Jin, etc., relieve stress and adjust the mind and body.
According to sweat smell:
Normal sweat does not have an obvious fishy smell. If the sweat smells smelly, it is mostly related to the heat or damp heat syndrome. It is liver fever. In this case, you can drink it through a light diet or soak in water with Chinese medicine chrysanthemum and Yinchen; Obviously, a doctor should be consulted.
In addition, if there is a lot of sweating, thirst, dizziness, chest tightness, nausea, palpitation, April weakness, tinnitus, inattention, and increased body temperature in the hot summer environment, it is generally a sign of heatstroke. It should be transferred to a cool and ventilated place in time and supplemented with some saline solution. It can return to normal in a short period of time. If the symptoms cannot be recovered or are serious, seek proper medical treatment in a timely manner.
In addition to the above, there are some sweating performances, such as the change of sweat color, such as yellow sweat, red sweat, black sweat, etc. This situation needs to be diagnosed and treated by the doctor after comprehensive judgment. For example, patients with severe illness suddenly sweating heavily, cold limbs, weak breathing or sweating, shortness of breath, etc., which indicates the danger of the disease. Once the abnormal sweating is serious or accompanied by other serious manifestations, you should see a doctor in time.
