Everyone yawns, but if you often yawn again and again, eliminating fatigue and lack of sleep and other factors may be caused by kidney deficiency.
The kidney referred to by Chinese medicine is a functional concept, not the anatomical kidney in western medicine. Chinese medicine believes that the kidney is the source of life and the "congenital essence" of the human body. The essence energy hidden in the kidney is the original driving force for human life activities. If the kidney essence is sufficient, the energy is strong and the body is full. If the essence energy in the kidney is insufficient and the human spirit and shape are not adequately maintained, the spirit is fatigued and yawns. .
Kidney deficiency is divided into Kidney Yang Deficiency, Kidney Yin Deficiency, Insufficient Kidney Essence, Insufficient Kidney Qi, and Insufficient Kidney. Kidney yang deficiency manifests as soreness in waist and knees, chills, cold limbs, impotence, diarrhea, etc .; Kidney yin deficiency manifests as insomnia, multiple dreams, premature ejaculation, hot flushes, night sweats, dry throat, etc .; kidney deficiency manifests as atrophy, Lack of fineness, loss of teeth, weakness, forgetfulness, deafness, etc .; Kidney insufficiency manifests as hearing loss, frequency of urination, ejaculation, premature ejaculation, etc .; Kidney insufficiency manifests as shortness of breath, shortness of breath, dyspnea, wheezing, aspiration God is tired waiting. These symptoms are closely related to kidney function.
How to choose the methods of nourishing yin, nourishing yang, nourishing qi, and filling essence depends on the specific symptoms. For example, people with kidney yang deficiency should use the method of warming kidney yang; people with kidney yin deficiency should nourish kidney yin; those with insufficient kidney essence should replenish kidney with essence; those with insufficient kidney qi and kidney failure should pay attention to benefits Qi nourish the kidney and nourish the kidney. Here we recommend a diet therapy with the above effects-chestnut-laba porridge.
"Compendium of Materia Medica" records: "chestnut taste, warm nature, enter the kidney meridian ... Li chestnuts kidney deficiency, waist and leg weakness, can pass kidney and Qi." The Tang Dynasty health care Sun Siyi once said: "Li chestnut, kidney fruit also, Kidney disease should be eaten. "Cooking chestnuts with various grains and cereals can help to nourish kidney qi.
It is also important to improve the symptoms of yawns and to improve your lifestyle. 1. Staying up late or not resting can cause yawning, so try to avoid staying up late every day. 2. Hypoxia can cause yawning. In this case, it is necessary to improve the surrounding environment. Pay attention to opening the window for ventilation. You can also go outdoors and get fresh air.
It should be reminded that frequent yawning may also be a precursor to stroke, which is more common in older people. The elderly's cerebral arteries gradually harden, and the blood supply to the brain is relatively reduced, which can lead to yawning. Elderly people with this symptom are better to go to the hospital for a check.
