In fact, this is all due to the excess of stomach fire. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that thin people have more fire due to yin deficiency. It is easy to be upset and hot, easy to sleep poorly, easy to wake up from many dreams, etc. Moreover, thin people want to grow meat and eat nourishing foods or medicines, especially warm medicinal foods, which are often easy to get angry.

Eating a lot, but not getting fat, and getting hungry easily, this phenomenon is called “eliminating the grain and improving hunger” in traditional Chinese medicine. Such people have strong stomach fire, insufficient stomach yin, too much decomposing effect of stomach on food, hypermetabolism, and excessive consumption too fast. It is often accompanied by symptoms of yin deficiency such as thirst and upset, red tongue with little coating, bad breath and constipation. In addition, spleen deficiency leads to poor absorption, and the ingested food cannot be converted into energy, qi and blood, so it is very thin and people look haggard.

Insomnia, hair loss

Anxiety and irritability caused by work stress can easily make the heart and anger full of fire, which will eventually lead to Problems such as insomnia, dreaminess, or hair loss. In addition to the blood, the hair needs blood to nourish, and the heart is the main blood vessel, and the heart fires rashly.
