Traditional Chinese medicine: dry eyes should regulate the liver

Abstract: after entering winter, the weather is relatively dry. Many people find that they are prone to dry eyes after watching a computer or mobile phone for a while. From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, dry eyes are caused by insufficient liver yin. Here’s how to fight dry eyes from diet and massage.

dry weather in autumn and winter is easy to cause vigorous liver fire, and the liver is open to the eyes. If you often feel dry eyes, it may be the manifestation of insufficient liver yin. If the liver is dry, it will first affect the eyes, and the eyes will have symptoms such as dryness and fatigue. The blood and Yin fluid provided by the

liver can nourish the eyes, and the liver is the source of eyesight. The liver is not good, and the secreted blood and Yin fluid are reduced. Naturally, the eyes can not be nourished and feel dry. The dry eye mainly reflects the deficiency of liver yin. In the five elements of traditional Chinese medicine, Jinke wood is considered, while in the Zang Fu organs, it is lung Jinke liver wood. The hyperactivity of lung gold can inhibit the liver wood, and the Yin fluid of liver wood is the source of nourishing the eyes. When it is inhibited, the secretion of Yin fluid decreases, so that the eyes will feel dry if they can’t be nourished. Of course, the eyes that were originally dry will be more serious. Therefore, anti eye dryness can eat some moist and dry foods, such as pears and lotus seeds, to make fruits in time, but melons and other cool foods should be eaten with caution. In addition, some flower teas can also nourish the liver, such as medlar tea and chrysanthemum tea. 10g of Radix Ginseng and Ophiopogon japonicus can also be used, and an appropriate amount of tea can be made in winter. Food therapy for dry eye: 1. Chrysanthemum and wolfberry tea, appropriate amount of chrysanthemum and wolfberry, and boil for about 10 minutes. [efficacy] according to the compendium of Materia Medica, chrysanthemum “has sweet nature and cold taste, and has the effects of dispersing wind heat, calming the liver and brightening the eyes” 。 Modern pharmacological analysis shows that chrysanthemum is rich in vitamin A and is an important substance to maintain eye health. Chrysanthemum tea can make people clear headed and bright eyes, especially for dry eyes caused by excessive use of eyes. It should be noted that chrysanthemums are cold in nature, and people with deficiency cold constitution (usually afraid of cold and easy to get cold in hands and feet) should not drink them often. 2. Moisturizing and brightening tea: 25g Astragalus membranaceus, 15g Salvia miltiorrhiza, 10g Ophiopogon japonicus, 10g Albizzia bark, 5g pueraria root and 10g mimonghua. After the medicinal materials are washed, soak them for 30 minutes, then pour 2000ml of water into them, turn the water to boil for 20 minutes. Filter out the herbs and take the juice and drink it slowly in a day. [efficacy] Astragalus membranaceus invigorates Qi and Salvia miltiorrhiza promotes blood circulation. This recipe can strengthen the blood circulation of the eyes and improve the dry condition of the eyes. 3. Lily red jujube porridge: 10g lily, 15g yam, 20g job’s tears and 10 red jujube (enucleated). Wash the above materials and eat them together with the porridge [efficacy] Lily can nourish yin and reduce fire, yam can nourish kidney and lungs, job’s tears can relieve dampness, strengthen spleen and clear away heat, and jujube is rich in vitamin C and vitamin A. This porridge has good effect on preventing dry eyes and has the effect of brightening eyes. 4. 15g Lycium barbarum, chew or make tea after washing [efficacy] Lycium barbarum can nourish yin and brighten the eyes, which can promote the repair of diseased cornea. In addition, it can massage acupoints to stimulate the eyes to secrete tears. The main reason for dry eyes is insufficient tear secretion. Try rubbing Jingming acupoint (located in the depression above the inner canthus corner of the face) to help the secretion of tears.
