How moisture is produced:
1. Food due to diet: eating too much meat, pollution in the food, little exercise, yin and yang deficiency in the body, dampness and internal depression, so stool cannot be normal.
Why are there so few formed stools?
According to Chinese medicine, spleen deficiency leads to loose stools. Chinese people should feed on whole grains and mainly meat. Many people feel very deficient if they don’t eat meat for a day. For a long time, it hurts the spleen and stomach. Yes, the spleen is injured, and the moisture cannot be completely transported and accumulated in the body.
Therefore, unformed stool means spleen deficiency and moisture in the body.
2. Environmental factors: Nowadays, people often stay up late to sleep before going to bed and take a bath before going to bed; when the human body sleeps, the pores are closed so that moisture cannot be discharged outside, and long-term accumulation of internal moisture causes disease.
Diseases caused by external dampness are mostly caused by patients who are injured in fog or dew, sweating on clothes, working in water, or wading in the rain, or living in damp places.
In addition, summer is the most vigorous season of the year, when the pores of the human body are opened, sweating is the easiest to expel cold and moisture.
However, many friends turned on the air conditioner and drank cold drinks, which abruptly prevented the cold and moisture from expelling.
How to regulate moisture weight:
