Solar terms and health – Grain rain breaks frost, nourishes liver and spleen

April 20th this year is Grain Rain, the sixth of the twenty-four solar terms. The name comes from the ancient saying that “rain gives birth to a hundred valleys”. Grain Rain is the last solar term in spring, after which the cold wave will end and the temperature will return quickly. “The Seventy-two Hours of the Moon Order” records: “The first phase is the beginning of life; the second phase is the singing of the dove and its feathers; the third phase is the Daisheng descending on the mulberry.” It depicts the increase in rainfall after the grain rain, the growth of duckweed, and the cuckoo bird. Remind the farmers to sow, the hoopoe stands on the mulberry branch in the late spring scene, the poplar flowers are all gone, and the Zigui is singing at night. The Grain Rain solar term is in the spring, so at this time, the liver is still the first priority, and attention should be paid to the stretching of liver qi and the rise of yang qi. In addition, the “Huangdi Neijing” has a cloud: “The spleen is also the earth, and the central part is controlled. It is often divided into four periods and four Tibetans, and each of them is treated for 18 days.” This shows that the last 18 days of each season are dominated by the spleen. At this time, the spleen is in full swing, and the Grain Rain Festival is the last solar term in spring, which coincides with the spleen. At that time, in addition to nourishing the liver, health preservation also required strengthening the spleen and stomach.

In the late spring, the liver qi gradually subsides and the temper becomes vigorous. In addition, there is more rainfall before and after the Grain Rain, and the humidity is heavier. The dampness easily invades the spleen and stomach, and traditional Chinese medicine believes that, “The spleen is prosperous in the four seasons without evil”, so strengthening the spleen and removing dampness during the Grain Rain season is also a key point, and it also lays a good foundation for the transition from nourishing “sheng” in spring to “growing” in summer. Health recommendation: ① Coix seed and ginger tea: 3 grams of Coix seed, 3 slices of ginger, 3 red dates (slices removed), boiled water instead of tea, can strengthen the spleen and remove dampness, suitable for people with spleen deficiency and humidification. ②Sweet potato invigorates the spleen and tonifies deficiency, and tonifies kidney yin. Chinese yam can invigorate the spleen, invigorate the lung, strengthen the kidney and replenish essence. Toona sinensis can invigorate the spleen, appetizers, diuresis and detoxification. Foods that can dispel dampness, such as barley, gorgon, red bean, white lentil, wax gourd, Corn, etc. can also be used. In addition, the fragrant and delicious Amy fruit can strengthen the spleen and warm the stomach. ③Guyu health porridge: 10 grams each of five meters of rice, millet, purple rice, corn, and barley rice, 10 grams each of lentils, red beans, soybeans, mung beans, black beans and five beans, plus 10 grams each of lotus seeds and gorgonians to make porridge to drink. It has the functions of strengthening the spleen and neutralizing the middle, dispelling dampness and soothing the nerves, and the five colors enter the five internal organs, which can nourish the five internal organs and strengthen the heart and kidneys. ④Moxibustion on Guanyuan, Qihai, Shenque and other acupoints three days before and after Guyu can warm the yang and dehumidify, strengthen the body and strengthen the immune system.

“After the Qingming Festival, there will be no snow and no frost in the spring.” In summer, the temperature rises and gradually stabilizes, and the change from warm to cold decreases. Its health preservation follows the principles of nourishing “sheng” in spring and nourishing yang in spring and summer, with particular emphasis on the nourishment of liver and spleen. In our daily life, in addition to using the above-mentioned methods such as dietary therapy and medicated diet, moxibustion foot bath, etc., we should also achieve daily life, a lot of exercise, and emotional peace. In addition, for people with weak constitution and prone to allergies, they should pay attention to wearing masks to prevent inhalation of allergens, and wearing long sleeves to avoid poisonous insect bites.
