Method for treating colds of the elderly by Chinese medicine
Click to buy Because the elderly are weak and have insufficient resistance, colds in the elderly are very common in spring. So what method is best to treat a cold?
The following recommends Chinese medicine treatment to everyone.
Some people with poor health are often more susceptible to colds than ordinary people. This is a manifestation of “weakness in the lungs” in traditional Chinese medicine.
There are differences in qi deficiency, blood deficiency, yin deficiency, and yang deficiency in the etiology and pathogenesis. For these cold patients, on the basis of expelling evil, they should be supplemented with qi, blood, yin, and yang to help the righteous qi, and go out to the evil.
Cold and Qi deficiency with Astragalus.
Elderly patients who are frail and sick have symptoms of chills, fever, headache, nasal congestion, fatigue, shortness of breath, and other symptoms of Qi deficiency and cold. You can take medicines such as Astragalus and so on to correct the evil and make the disease recover as soon as possible.
In addition, modern research shows that astragalus can improve the immune function of the human body and also has a certain effect on preventing colds.
Cold and blood deficiency with angelica.
If in addition to cold symptoms, patients with pale face, pale lip nails, palpitations, dizziness, and other blood deficiency manifestations, you can follow the doctor’s advice and take blood-reinforcing drugs such as angelica, as appropriate, to correct the evil and nourish blood.
Cold and yang deficiency with aconite.
In addition to the common cold symptoms, the patient also had symptoms such as fear of wind, cold limbs, and clear urine, which may be caused by yang deficiency.
At this time, you can add Onyang medicines such as aconite and cinnamon stick according to your doctor’s advice.
Cold and yin deficiency with Yuzhu.
There may be symptoms of yin deficiency due to symptoms such as hot hands, feet, dry mouth, dry throat, short urine, and red tongue.
At this time, according to the doctor’s advice, you can use medicines such as Yuzhu and Ophiopogon.
What we need to pay attention to is that Chinese medicine believes that colds are “superficial evils” that the disease enters the human body through the skin pores, and the treatment should be based on relieving the evils.
If the tonic method is used rashly while the external evil is still in the body or never drained, the path of external discharge of evil air is inserted, thereby “staying behind closed doors” and aggravating the condition.
For example, American ginseng is cool in nature, sweet in taste, slightly bitter, and has the effects of nourishing qi and nourishing yin, and clearing away heat and jin.
It can be used for people with symptoms such as internal heat, coughing and breathing blood, fatigue, fatigue, and dry mouth and throat.
However, blindly taking tonic American ginseng when colds are not only not conducive to the spread of external evils, but will nourish the evils, so colds are not easy to get better.
Too many Chinese patent medicines such as Buzhong Yiqi Pills, Shiquan Dabu Pills, etc. have been marked on the manuals as “cannot be used as evidence of aversion to cold and fever”, that is, unsuitable for colds.
In addition, for patients with influenza, due to the rapid onset of illness, severe illness, high fever, it is not appropriate to supplement, should wait for the cold to improve before the appropriate differentiation of supplementation.
