Winter is the season of the kidneys, and during the winter month, the kidney qi is flourishing, while the heart and lungs are relatively weak. When cardiovascular and cerebrovascular and blood pressure are prone to problems, especially the elderly.
Salty is not for the kidney ? Why eat less salty or even put an end to salty things?
The salty taste enters the kidney , but “when the vigorous viscera are not nourished”, when the Dongyue kidney is already vigorous, it is good to nourish it at a normal level without nourishing it, or to nourish it slightly.
《The Yellow Emperor “Nei Jing” said: “Eat more salty, the pulse will condense and weep and change color.”

Lotus seeds clear heart fire and soothe the nerves It can improve sleep, and it has astringent power, which is also good for the kidneys.
Cinnamon is amazing It is hot in nature, pungent in taste, strong in aroma, very hot in itself, and has a strong effect of warming the kidney and yang. At the same time, it can also ignite the fire and return to the original, nourish the kidney and warm the lower body of the body, and at the same time improve the problem of asthenia fire.

In this way, the strength of warming yang is very strong, but it is not suitable for autumn and winter when it is necessary to nourish yin. Our current moxibustion, or hanging moxibustion, or moxibustion box, is very gentle. If you have yang deficiency, body cold, fear of cold, or daily health maintenance, you can still use moxibustion, but don’t moxibustion for too long a day.
