Prepare for winter and summer diseases
Question 1 Why should the illness be treated in the summer in winter?
Liu Baoyan: Winter disease is simply a disease that is easy to attack or worsen in winter.
Treatment is performed in the summer when the disease is recovering to reduce the number of attacks in the winter or other springs and springs. The remedy is called winter disease and summer treatment.
Chinese medicine pays attention to “Yang Yang in spring and summer, Yang in autumn and winter.”
Spring and summer due to the weather, it is particularly easy to cause injury to the human body’s yang. At this time, if the yang is not taken into account, the body’s disease prevention and disease resistance will be reduced.
Question 2 Is there any way to treat winter disease and summer disease?
Liu Baoyan: There are many methods for treating winter diseases and summer diseases, the most commonly used are acupoint application therapy, and the southern plaster prescription.
In summer, according to the body’s physical condition, boil some plasters, and you can also take care of yang by taking these medicines.
There are also moxibustion methods, acupuncture points at Sanfutian Moxibustion, and you can also protect yang.
Question 3 Which diseases are mainly targeted for winter and summer disease?
Li Guoqin: The treatment of winter and summer diseases is mainly aimed at respiratory diseases, including variant rhinitis, bronchitis, chronic bronchitis, chronic complication lung disease, etc. This type of disease can be treated by winter and summer treatment.
Question 4 How does acupoint application work?
Li Guoqin: Acupoint application with plaster made from traditional Chinese medicine was originally proposed by Zhang Lu of the Qing Dynasty in “Zhang’s Medical Practice”.
He uses four mustards, such as white mustard, grinds it into fine powder, and then applies it.
It was found that some patients recovered or cured by acupoint application the next year.
At present, the traditional Chinese medicine application therapy is to apply the medicine on the acupoints of the human body after processing the medicine on the basis of the ancients. In this way, by stimulating the meridian points of the human body, adjusting yin and yang, and improving the body’s immunity, in order to prevent disease and cureThe purpose of the disease.
Question 5 What are the advantages of acupoint application?
Li Guoqin: The first drug used is herbal medicine, which does not pollute the environment.
The second crystals are combined.
The third internal disease and external treatment.
The fourth price is relatively low.
The fifth effect is good.
Sixty-three times less.
Question 6 Is the effect related to the choice of acupoints and drugs?
Su Huiping: There are many hospitals that implement acupoint application. Each hospital may choose different medicines, but they all follow the basic theory of traditional Chinese medicine and choose the medicine of Wenjingtongluo. They are the preparations of various hospitals.
Because the target diseases are not the same, the hospitals for selecting acupoints are not the same, but basically based on the traditional methods, and then according to the corresponding diseases.
For example, for the respiratory system, there are more acupoints such as lung crest, kidney crest and spleen crest.
Question 7 Can I apply it at home?
Su Huiping: We basically do not object to the patients taking the stickers, because patients may not be very accurate in choosing the acupuncture points. They should go to the hospital and choose the acupuncture points and medicines by the doctor to ensure the best curative effect.
Question 8 Is there any relationship between the application effect and the course of the disease?
Su Huiping: It still has an impact, because the efficacy of any treatment method is definitely related to the severity of the disease and the length of the disease.
Relatively speaking, if the disease is relatively mild or the disease course is short, then timely treatment should be able to achieve better results.
Question 9: If I apply medicine in the summer, do I not feel asthma in the winter?
Liu Baoyan: After so many years of application, it is observed that the efficacy of acupoint application is mainly a curative effect.
We are not talking about treating high blood pressure itself or rhinitis itself, but we are using summer medicine to prevent the onset of disease in winter.
Because the onset of these diseases is often related to the infection of the upper respiratory tract, and the application of acupoints can enhance the body’s resistance, the chance and frequency of upper respiratory tract infections are reduced, or the degree of infection is alleviated.
Question 10 What are the precautions for acupoint application?
Li Guoqin: Our hospital has been applying patch therapy for 50 years and has accumulated some experience.There are three main points that should be noted: First, in the middle of the acupoint application, we should not eat cold, spicy food.
Second, the drug stimulates the skin. It regulates yin and yang by stimulating the acupuncture points of the human body. Therefore, the skin feels warm and hot with some slight stinging when applied. This is a normal phenomenon. This is the reaction of the drug to work, So must be worried.
However, there are very few patients who may cause headache pain or strange itching. At this time, the drug can be removed.
Third, in the past, the ancients believed that the more foaming acupoint application, the better the effect, but now people have changed this view, that is, the doctor is required to not foam, but also better than the ancients.
If there are foaming patients, do not wash them with water. Those with more foaming should go to the hospital to see a doctor.
After proper treatment, these patients will heal quickly.
However, for some patients who are susceptible to skin infection, we attach caution to acupoint application.
Question 11 Is there an age limit for acupoint application?
Liu Baoyan: There are many hospitals doing pediatric application, and the effect of treating asthma in children is also good.
In some hospitals, two-year-old children can also paste, but the medication is slightly different from that of adults.
For example, reduce the amount of ginger juice and white mustard to reduce the irritation of children’s delicate skin.
Generally 3 years old children can paste it, but it should be noticed that the duration of the paste is shorter than that of adults, and the dosage and the type of medicine are different.
The acupoints are mainly dorsal acupoints.
Question 12 Can children apply if they are weak?
Liu Baoyan: There are many pediatric patches, mainly hypertension, recurrent respiratory infections and so on.
There are specific diagnostic criteria for the suitability of a child for pediatric application.
Some children are relatively weak, and when they catch a cold, he immediately catches a cold, and the application is good.
Li Guoqin: These children posted better results than adults, because their illness is simpler.
Adults have a relatively long course of illness and other diseases at the same time.
Question 13 Can acupoint application be immediate?
Su Huiping: Our hospital has been applying dressing for many years. Some patients do have some alternatives to applying winter acupoints and treating acupoints. First, the main purpose of the dressing in the first stage is to reduce the onset of the disease and delay the diseasedevelopment of.
For example, a pilot or a patient with COPD still needs to be given a long-term treatment and long-term medication to control the condition.
Some patients want to apply today and it will be fine tomorrow. This is not possible because the application is only an auxiliary treatment.
The purpose of the application is not to stop the cough and the asthma by applying it once, but to increase the resistance and reduce the onset of the disease.
Therefore, do not stop taking the medicine casually, as this will easily lead to the onset of the disease.
Secondly, there are some patients who think that the application method is relatively simple, and there are many people who apply it now. Without following the consequences, they blindly follow the trend.
In fact, acupoint application has indications, even if many patients with chronic cough, if it is tuberculosis or bronchiectasis, it is not convenient to apply.
In particular, some of them are of yin deficiency and are not suitable for posting.
Third, there are some people who expect that the root cause will be beyond that after application.
This is currently unattainable.
Some patients posted it once, or three times a year. When they didn’t feel much for some time, they lost their confidence.
In fact, some recurrent diseases require a course of treatment, usually three years as a small cycle. To achieve satisfactory results, we must adhere to the course of treatment.
Question 14 What preparations should be made before acupoint application?
Liu Baoyan: First, you should bring your own medical records as the basis for doctor’s diagnosis.
Secondly, these patients often have a remission period in the summer. They may not take medicine or take very little medicine, but they should provide some medicine to the doctor if you take less medicine.
Third, the effect of the application is to see the onset of the disease.
What the patient may cause is usually the starting point for the next effect.
So we hope that when the patient comes, first sort out and think about how the disease developed in another winter in the past year. If it happens, provide it to the doctor.
Question 15 Acupoint application is also suitable for certain diseases?
Li Guoqin: At present, the winter and summer treatment method is mainly aimed at respiratory diseases. There are some stomach cold diseases with abdominal patches, which are also effective. Liu Baoyan: The patch method is mainly used in clinical practice for recurrent respiratory diseases, but the data I have seen in recent years is no longer limited to this disease.
For example, it is used for frostbite. It is okay in summer and committed in winter. The effect after patch treatment is also good.
Question 16 How to deal with blistering after acupoint application?
Li Guoqin: One of the medicines for acupoint application is white mustard seed.
White mustard is very irritating to the patient’s skin.
According to our many years of experience, 3% -4% of patients may blister after application.
If the foam is small, just apply some iodine. If the foam is large, go to the hospital to pump out the liquid in the foam and apply local topical medicine, usually about a week.
Su Huiping: In fact, in traditional dressing therapy, it is selected foam.
One is called foaming moxibustion, also called tian moxibustion, which uses raw white mustard seeds to prevent and cure diseases through foaming.
At present, hospitals usually use white mustard or fried white mustard. This method reduces the medicinal properties and prevents it from foaming.
But because each patient’s constitution is different, some reactions are large, others are small, and there are blistering.
Exactly what is the difference between foaming and non-foaming, there is no rigorous clinical validation.
Therefore, we recommend that you don’t blindly pursue foaming, and once you foam, you don’t have to be nervous.
The skin reaction of patients is different. Some people stick it for 6 hours, maybe the skin is not red at all, and some people may blister for two hours. This is related to individual differences.
Foaming is a normal skin reaction during treatment.
If it is slightly red, you don’t need to worry about it. If it is very small and has a slight itch, remove the medicine as soon as possible, although it is also sometimes exposed in less than two hours. Gently rinse the local medicine residue with water, taking care not to getbroken.
If you have blistering or festering, do not handle it by yourself, you should go to the hospital dermatology to see it.
Question 17 Is there a uniform standard for acupoint application?
Liu Baoyan: Acupoint application in winter disease and summer treatment is a complex intervention: the composition of the drug, the selection of the acupoint, the timing of the application, and the amount of stimulation have a certain relationship.
Especially the knowledge of drug selection is relatively deep.
One is what medicine taste to choose, and is it necessary to change according to different situations?
When adjusting the medicine, ginger juice is now used. The concentration of ginger juice is different. There may be a certain difference in the amount of stimulus, so the difference here is still very large.
This year, the Chinese Academy of Acupuncture and Moxibustion came forward and organized 13 large hospitals in the country that applied more acupoints to conduct a study together.
Clinical observation of 50,000 cases, to do a technical study of acupoint application of winter disease and summer treatment.
We also announced the National “Eleventh Five-Year Plan” for science and technology support plan. There is a research paper on foreign governance law. This paper is still in the process of application. We hope to get national support.
