      In the midsummer season, many people are prone to "air conditioning disease", with symptoms such as dizziness, headache, upper respiratory tract infection, gastrointestinal discomfort, and joint pain. The theory of traditional Chinese medicine believes that in the spring and summer, the human skin is the best time to maintain Yang Qi. Excessive artificial refrigeration increases the chance of wind-cold evil air attacking the human body, and it is easy to cause normal human body function disorders. Wang Lei, director of the Department of Treatment of Diseases at Tianshan Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Changning District, Shanghai, said that the public can use acupoint massage, medicated baths, and Chinese medicine to relieve symptoms. If the effect is not obvious, you must go to the hospital in time.
      Wang Lei said that the heat and dampness of midsummer tends to invade the human body. When a person enters an air-conditioned environment that is too cold, the heat and dampness will be blocked in the body due to the cold outside the body; at the same time, the body's local qi and blood will be blocked by the over-cooling , The feeling of cold and hot can easily lead to the body's regulatory dysfunction, causing headaches and dizziness. There are three common causes of "air conditioning disease": one is that the temperature difference between indoor and outdoor is too large. If a person enters and exits the outdoor high and low temperature air-conditioning environment many times in a short period of time, the human body may not be able to adjust quickly; the second is the air in the air-conditioned room No circulation can easily cause dust accumulation and bacterial reproduction; third, dry indoor air can easily irritate human mucous membranes.
      In this regard, corresponding measures can be taken, such as controlling the temperature of the air conditioner at 26 ℃-29 ℃, paying attention to more ventilation, and increasing the indoor oxygen content and humidity. At the same time, the use of three methods of traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate the symptoms of "air-conditioning disease" can also be effective in curing the disease.
      The first trick is acupressure. Wang Lei recommended three acupoints-Temple, Yingxiang and Fengchi. Before massage, you should rub your hands and massage each acupoint with moderate intensity for 5 minutes. The temples are located on both sides of the forehead, between the end of the eyebrows and the upper edge of the auricle. Massage the temples to help relieve fatigue, invigorate the spirit, relieve pain and refresh the brain; Yingxiang points in the outer edge of the nose and nasolabial fold, massage welcome Xiang acupoint can evacuate wind-heat and relieve the nose and orifices; Fengchi acupoint is located in the lacuna on both sides of the back neck and flush with the earlobe. Massaging the Fengchi acupoint can relieve the wind, suppress the liver-yang, and relax the veins It helps relieve symptoms such as headache, neck and shoulder pain, insomnia and eye fatigue.
      The second trick is the medicated bath. If you have neck and shoulder pain, waist and leg pain, headaches and other discomforts, you can boil 100 g of Angelica dahurica in water, add an appropriate amount of white wine after cooking, and then take a bath. The Angelica dahurica bath has the effect of easing the meridians, activating the collaterals and relieving pain, as well as whitening the skin. If you experience wind-heat symptoms such as dry throat, headache, dry lips and tongue, you might as well try a peppermint bath, bathing with 60 grams of dried peppermint. Can play the role of sweating and antipyretic; if you have symptoms of wind-cold symptoms such as clearing your nose and sneezing, you can take a bath after boiling water with dried perilla.
      "Each time you take a bath for 15 minutes to 20 minutes, the water temperature is preferably 40?C to 45?C, and you can wash two or three times a week." Wang Lei reminded, "If the elderly have coronary heart disease or high blood pressure, they should shorten the bath time appropriately. If you feel unwell in the middle, stop immediately.” In addition, the medicinal materials must be soaked in cold water for half an hour, then boiled in a pot, and the water will boil for 10 minutes.
      The third trick is to take Huoxiang Zhengqi Water. This trick can be used to treat indigestion, gastrointestinal discomfort, loss of appetite, and white and greasy tongue coating caused by "air conditioning disease". Adults take 1-2 bottles each time, 2 times a day.
      Wang Lei also reminded the public that working at the desk for a long time in an air-conditioned room or looking at the mobile phone for a long time will cause local qi and blood loss and blockage of the meridians at the neck and waist. If you blow the air conditioner harder, it will also become a cause of "air conditioning disease." Therefore, it is necessary to avoid sedentary sitting, get up and move more muscles and bones.
