Don’t take too much to take the tonic.


Don’t take too much to take the tonic.

With the rise of health care medicine in the chronic, various nutritional supplements have emerged as the times require, and the names are numerous and dazzling.

Some middle-aged and elderly people, either because of their own health concerns or their nutritional supplements, no matter whether they are sick or sick, false proofs, blindly overdose tonic, do not know that this is not only not availableThe resulting effects add to the disease and affect health.

銆€銆€The purpose of taking tonic is to enhance physical fitness, restore vitality, and improve the body’s immune function; or to suffer from geriatric diseases, brake fitness and health, and prolong life.

However, “complement” is for “virtual”, that is to say, when the human body is in the absence of righteousness and virtual image, it can only enter the tonic, “virtual image”, Chinese medicine is called “viral syndrome”, according to the deficiencyThere are different clinical manifestations, which are divided into different types such as Yin deficiency, Yang deficiency, Qi deficiency, blood deficiency, spleen deficiency and kidney deficiency.

Therefore, in the imaginary deficiency of Chinese medicine, Chinese medicine practitioners often follow the principle of “dialectical treatment” and use different methods such as supplementing yin, supplementing yang, tonifying qi, nourishing blood, invigorating the spleen and tonifying the kidney, especially “virtual”.”, tonic” treatment rules, in order to ensure that the supplement is not biased, and there is no counter-effect of “helping and helping the fire.”

Therefore, the following aspects should be noted when taking tonic.


To distinguish the syndrome, the yin and yang, the so-called “complement” is to make up for the patient’s deficiency and deficiency.

However, the clinical manifestations of TCM syndromes are often complicated. Therefore, some people seem to be physically weak. In fact, “virtual” is also mixed with “positive evidence”, and patients with “virtual inclusion” cannot be tonic.

For example: a person feels weak, lack of energy, chest tightness, uncomfortable, loss of appetite, but the stool is not understood for several days, yellow urine, yellow greasy tongue coating.

If you take your own medicine, it is equal to the oil on the fire, it will definitely breed him.

Therefore, before the tonic, you must distinguish between yin and yang, follow the doctor’s advice, and do so in a targeted manner.


In order to grasp the proper dose of the tonic, it is necessary to pass the digestion and absorption of the spleen and stomach to become the nutrients needed by the human body.

Therefore, Chinese medicine has a statement that “the spleen and stomach are the foundation of the day after tomorrow, the source of qi and blood biochemistry”.

However, the use of tonic tonic, there is a process of gradual progress, seeing the power for a long time, which means that you can not see the deficiency, you can make up for the supplement, over-medication and eager to seek success.

Otherwise, it may cause digestive weakness of the spleen and stomach, resulting in chest and abdomen fullness and discomfort, and even other symptoms.

For this reason, for major surgery, massive bleeding, so that the blood and blood suddenly hurt, the patient who is righteous and mad, can urgently use ginseng 30 grams of decoction to repair the treatment.

If you have a chronic disease, or a nursery period after an acute illness, you can use a medicinal calm, a potent and a slow nutritional supplement, and divide it into two small servings. It is generally better to take one spoon per morning and evening.


To master the method of decoction, all the tonic tablets are mainly roots of plants, stems are thick, and the thickness is dense.

Therefore, before the decocting, the medicine should be immersed in the pot water for 2 hours, then add water to the medicine level. After boiling, simmer for about one and a half hours, and turn the medicine several times at intervals.

Each dose should be fried twice. When frying the second time, add less water. The frying time is about 1 hour.

The medicine juice to be taken is usually served on an empty stomach before meals, or in the morning and evening.


To grasp the seasons of replenishment, the time to take medicine is generally used for old and old, or elderly patients with chronic diseases have not healed for a long time.

For those who are old and physically weak, it is advisable to replenish in the winter. This is the saying that the Chinese medicine 鈥渨inter is the seal of the winter鈥? which means that the winter recharges the blood and the disease can be less in the coming year.

For elderly patients with chronic bronchitis, asthma, and increased disease in the winter, you should take supplements in the summer.

This is called “winter disease in summer” in Chinese medicine.

Because summer is bronchitis, the remission period of acute disease, at this time the virtual image is prominent, if it can be supplemented, it can alleviate the onset of winter disease.

銆€銆€In short, taking tonics under the guidance of a doctor, can not be abused.

Others, such as in the case of a cold or an infectious disease, should also be temporarily suspended.
