To cut to the chase, today I want to talk to you about pulmonary nodules.
It should be noted that there are no obvious symptoms in the early stage of pulmonary nodules, so most people only find out that they have nodules in their lungs after passing the physical examination.
When most people learn that they have nodules in their lungs, their first reaction is somewhat Worried, for fear that the nodules will become diseased.
In fact, even if you know that you have nodules in your lungs, you don’t have to worry too much. Although lung nodules can be divided into benign and malignant, most lung nodules The nodules are still benign.
So, where do lung nodules come from?
First of all, the pathogenesis lies in the lungs. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the lungs like to be moisturized and not dry. , dryness is most likely to attack the lungs, and dryness is fire evil, which easily burns body fluid and turns into phlegm. Therefore, the ancients also called the lungs the source of phlegm storage. Therefore, turbid phlegm is the root of nodules.
Secondly, the lungs regulate the water passages, and phlegm obstructing the lungs will inevitably hinder the distribution and operation of the water passages around the body. It will aggravate the root of phlegm turbidity.
In addition, although nodules arise due to yin and cold, they can be stagnant for a long time and turn into heat, and dryness and heat can breed. Combined with yin and cold, Chinese medicine calls it the exchange of cold and heat. Therefore, the symptoms of nodules are more complicated. Although phlegm is turbid, it cannot be treated solely by resolving phlegm.
The prescription introduced today is called Zeqi Tang, which comes from the “Synopsis of the Golden Chamber” written by Zhang Zhongjing, a medical sage in the Eastern Han Dynasty. this.
Zaiqi Soup: Zeqi, Guizhi, Baiqian, Aster, Ginseng, Pinellia, Ginger, Scutellaria, Licorice.
Zeqi, also known as cat’s eye grass, is actually very common, whether in ravines, small roadsides, or in The shadow of lacquer can be seen in the wilderness and wetlands.
We say that the essence of nodules is actually phlegm. The phlegm dissipated bit by bit.
Cinnamon branch is the twig on the branch of cinnamon tree, which is closest to the sun Therefore, the yang qi of the sun is also fully obtained. Therefore, Guizhi is especially good at warming yang and transforming qi, which can transform the yin and cold in the body, and improve the symptoms of internal stagnation of water dampness.
Of course, one hero has three gangs, so here is Bai Qian and aster, both of them are warm medicinal materials, both of which enter the lung meridian, which can not only help Zeqi dissolve phlegm in the lungs, but also help Guizhi warm the lungs and yin and cold, and play togetherThe effect of warming the lungs and transforming drink.
Chinese medicine believes that the growth of water, dampness and phlegm in the body is mainly due to the decay of the spleen soil, making it difficult to control water. Therefore, ginseng is used here.
Ginseng is sweet in taste and warm in nature. It mainly enters the spleen and lung meridian.
It is also a good medicine for invigorating the lung meridian.
The efficacy of pinellia in reducing phlegm is deeply rooted in the hearts of the people.
Ban Xia mainly enters the spleen and stomach meridian. It is said to be an essential medicine for drying dampness and resolving phlegm. You can go and see, but Pinellia is used in most of the prescriptions that need to reduce phlegm.
Ginger has a spicy taste and warm nature, which can help warm medicinal materials such as Guizhi and Baiqian Yang, its pungent nature can also invigorate the stomachCleansing phlegm and loose drinking;
Scutellaria baicalensis is cold in nature, enters the lung meridian, can clear away stagnant heat in the lungs, has a very bitter taste, and is good at reducing diarrhea. It is used together with the pungent and loose properties of ginger, and it is known as “increasing at the same time and falling at the same time”. Xin Kai Ku Jiang, and the stagnation of qi in the spleen and stomach will be gradually dissipated.
A licorice is used at the end, which can not only help ginseng strengthen the spleen and Qi, but also Reconcile the strong and fierce properties of the various medicines so as not to damage the spleen and stomach.
Of course, there is no constant square, and no constant quantity.
The lacquer soup is mainly Mainly to resolve phlegm, however, phlegm turbidity is only one of the causes of pulmonary nodules, in addition, blood stasis is also one of the causes of nodules, so for those with severe blood stasis, you can add Sanleng and Curcuma Wait for medicinal materials for breaking blood and removing blood stasis.
If you want a better effect, you can add herbs such as Prunella vulgaris and Kelp that soften, firm, dissipate and eliminate carbuncles.
