Warm up your feet in the winter and use the massage basin carefully!
After dinner, I burned a basin of water and watched TV while soaking my feet. After an hour or two, I was warmed up and then went to sleep. After entering the winter, many old people liked the bubble feet before going to bed.
However, the famous doctor of Shanghai famous doctor Xiao Xiaoyu said in an interview with reporters recently that the foot is the “second heart” of the human body, and it is necessary to pay attention to science.
There are three errors in the above-mentioned foot bath procedure, which need to attract the attention of the elderly.
銆€銆€The three main points need to pay attention to the saying: “The old man wants to live longer, and the head is cold and hot.”
Professor Yan pointed out that the first thing to pay attention to is that the time should not be too long, at most half an hour. Otherwise, the partial blood circulation of the feet overlaps too quickly, which will cause the relative volume of other parts of the body. The elderly may faint due to insufficient blood supply to the brain.
銆€銆€Basically, it should be noted that it is not advisable to soak your feet within half an hour after a meal. It will affect the supply of blood in the stomach, and the long-term down and malnutrition of the elderly.
銆€銆€In addition, you can’t sleep immediately after soaking your feet.
When you are rubbing your feet, rub your feet and put on your socks to keep warm. After the heat is slowly lowered, the best effect is to fall asleep.
銆€銆€Professor Yan said that it is best for the elderly to use a wooden bucket that penetrates deeper and has a bottom area that fits comfortably in both feet, and allows the water to soak into the calf.
The water temperature is suitable for about 40 seconds, so you should add hot water at any time.
銆€銆€Traditional Chinese medicine foot bath is more effective Professor 鎻愬埌 mentioned that in the hot water bathing feet, if you can add Chinese medicine in hot water, for some elderly patients with chronic diseases, you can also take the role of health care with half the effort.
Professor Yan recommended several alternative methods for simple foot bathing: the elderly with qi deficiency can use ginseng, jaundice, atractylodes and other qi medicines.
Hypertensive patients should use chrysanthemum, wolfberry, mulberry leaf branch, salvia miltiorrhiza, etc. with some decocting tablets of borneol.
銆€銆€Some elderly people need to promote blood and kidney in winter, alternate angelica, red peony, safflower, Chuanchuan and so on.
Some old people go to the winter to dry skin, easy to chapped, alternating Chinese traditional medicine such as cassia twig, silver flower, safflower.
Take 15-20 grams of each of the above traditional Chinese medicines, boil them in a casserole, then pour the fried liquid into the bucket, then add hot water and soak for 30 minutes every day.
銆€銆€Professor Yan reminded that the traditional Chinese medicine foot bath must not use metal and plastic pots, otherwise the active ingredients of the liquid will lose a part.
The skin is damaged, and the foam should be suspended during the wound (except when the skin is dry and ruptured).
Chinese medicine soaking feet can only play a role in adjuvant therapy. Older friends should never use it as a method of treating diseases, so as not to delay the illness.
銆€銆€Massage the basin carefully. Many elderly people still like to use the health massage footbath to soak their feet. As long as they are powered on, they can maintain the water temperature, and they can also spray different water to massage the soles of the feet. Many young people use it as a gift to the elders.
銆€銆€Professor Yan reminded everyone that the massage basin should be used with caution.
Because Chinese medicine massage mainly stimulates local acupuncture points by massage to achieve therapeutic effect, the water flow speed of the massage foot basin is not enough, and the cheeks are stimulated, and it is difficult to achieve the effect.
In addition, the massage footbowl is complicated in materials, and I don’t know what reaction will happen after adding Chinese medicine. For the elderly, it is better to replace the wooden foot bath barrel.
