Popular science | spring is well covered, and the disease goes around! Don’t wear too much spring clothes, these four places are enough.

The temperature rises gradually in spring,
Make everyone feel comfortable.
But the cold air kills a comeback from time to time,
Let the temperature rise and fall.
I just took off my long pants and found that it had cooled down;
I put on my winter clothes again, but I was sweating from the heat.
This cold-hot change,
People will get sick if they are not careful.
As the saying goes, "Spring covers autumn, and old people get sick",
In spring, you still have to cover it!
Spring covers everywhere, miscellaneous diseases are not born.
Cover your wrists: keep your whole body blood.
The heart is in charge of the blood vessels of the whole body, and warms the whole body by conveying qi and blood, while the original point is the point that is in charge of the vitality of the viscera and the motive force of life.
Shenmen point, as the original point of the heart meridian of hand shaoyin, is the first key part of spring cover.
Location: Shenmen point is located on the wrist transverse striation, on the inner side of the tendon below the wrist on the little finger side of the hand.
Health care method: Press Shenmen point repeatedly with the thumb tip for 30 times when it is normal, which can remove irritability and calm the nerves. When pressing this point, you don’t need too much force, and you don’t have to pursue a feeling of soreness.
Cover your waist and back: Everything will be fine if your kidney is good.
The root of yang in human body is the kidney, and the waist is the house of the kidney. When the kidney is yang-deficient, the waist will be sore, afraid of cold, frequent urination and prone to fatigue.
Massage the Shenshu point on the waist, which can nourish yin and strengthen yang, tonify kidney and strengthen waist.
Location: Shenshu point is located under the spinous process of the second lumbar vertebra and at the width of the left and right fingers.
Health care method: you can make a fist with both hands, put the protrusion of the metacarpophalangeal joint of the index finger on Shenshu point located on both sides of the waist and back, first press and knead it clockwise for 9 times, then press and knead it counterclockwise for 9 times, and so on for 36 times.
Hot compress or moxibustion with hot water bottle can also warm kidney yang.
Covering feet and calves: gathering yang, causing pain in one year.
In spring, many elderly people will have migraine or small abdominal pain, even nausea, vomiting, eye pain and other manifestations of liver-yang deficiency.
This suggests that we should focus on protecting the feet and calves, and applying more hot compress to the point near weeping on weekdays can improve this discomfort.
Location: The point of Zulinqi is located on the outside of the dorsum of the foot, between the metatarsal bones of the fourth toe and the little toe.
Health care method: place the thumb and finger surfaces of both hands on the point near the foot, press vertically, press down and rub it, then slowly flex and stretch the toes, so that the stimulation can fully reach the deep layer of muscle tissue. After 20 ~ 30 seconds, gradually relax, and then gently rub the part. Repeat this operation for 5-10 minutes each time, 2-3 times a day.
Cover your navel: nourish yang and help you live longer.
Traditional Chinese medicine calls navel Shenque point, which can inspire spleen and stomach yang. Especially for people who often have cold pain and diarrhea in the stomach, special attention should be paid to the warmth of this part.
Health care method: massage method can be used to maintain Shenque point, that is, on an empty stomach before going to bed every night, rub your hands hot, put them on your navel at the bottom left and top right, and massage them clockwise for 360 times each time.
These people have to "cover up"
Gastropathy patient
Low-temperature stimulation can cause capillary contraction, affect gastric acid secretion and blood circulation in the stomach, thus causing acute stomach spasm, gastric ulcer, gastroenteritis and so on.
Such people need to increase or decrease their clothes in time to prevent their abdomen from catching cold.
Pay attention to warm and nourish the stomach, drink more hot water, eat less cold food and eat on time. Exercise in moderation, not too much exercise and sweating.
Arthropathy patient
The recurrence of most joint diseases is related to cold.
In the early spring, when the temperature is changeable, patients with arthropathy should pay more attention to protecting the important joints of the whole body to avoid the invasion of cold air.
After cold air stimulation, it will lead to decreased airway immunity and impaired function, and then increase airway responsiveness, causing cough, chest tightness and even asthma and dyspnea.
Therefore, when the temperature drops suddenly, patients with asthma and chronic bronchitis had better go out less. When they have to go out, they can wear masks, add clothes, and pay attention to keeping their head, chest, back and feet warm to avoid catching cold.
coronary heart patient
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that "blood coagulates when it meets cold", which means that cold stimulation will cause blood vessels to contract and spasm, and the blood flow will not be smooth, and at the same time increase the burden on the heart, thus easily inducing cardiovascular diseases.
Therefore, for patients with coronary heart disease, it is necessary to keep warm the chest and back at this time.
In addition, rational medication is needed to control blood pressure. If you have chest tightness, dull pain or palpitation, even if the attack time is very short, you should pay special attention.
Patients with cerebrovascular disease
Spring is the season of high incidence of cerebral infarction, especially during this period, the large temperature difference between day and night, low air pressure and high humidity are easy to stimulate the nerves that control vascular activity in the body, resulting in continuous spasm of arterioles and sudden rise of blood pressure.
Therefore, for middle-aged and elderly people, once they find symptoms such as numbness or weakness of one limb, numbness or skew of one face, unclear speech, dizziness with vomiting, they must be highly vigilant and should go to the hospital for examination and treatment immediately.
Matters needing attention in spring cover
Whether it is covered in spring depends on the weather. Generally speaking, the temperature difference between day and night is large in spring.When it is cold in the morning and evening, cover it properly..
Clothes can be reduced appropriately when the temperature is above 10 degrees Celsius at noon; When there is a "cold spring", we must abide by the way of "spring cover"; When the "warm spring" comes, that is, when the maximum daily temperature is above 20 degrees Celsius for several days in a row, it can’t be "covered".
If two kinds of extreme weather alternate, you should dress and undress more frequently.
