The correct way to open the “winter tonic”, so that you can’t get angry and make you comfortable all winter

In winter, folks have always had the custom of replenishing winter. The proverb “replenishing winter in winter and replenishing the empty mouth” is the best metaphor.

Patients with non-deficiency syndromes should not abuse tonics. Deficiency syndromes can be divided into yin deficiency, yang deficiency, and qi deficiency.

Therefore, not everyone needs tonic in winter, and not everyone’s tonic method is the same. Only by taking the right medicine can benefit the body, otherwise it will backfire and harm the body. Let’s introduce the personalized winter tonic methods for several common physical types of people.
