Second brother, mulberry leaves and loquat leaves can both treat coughing. How to choose them?

Mulberry leaves are harvested and born as they are harvested, with the highest vitality in the spring of Shaoyang. They are sweet, cold, and slightly bitter in nature. Leaves should be used in the lungs of the body, causing bitterness to enter the heart and reduce fire. Therefore, the treatment of heat and warmth related to the stagnation of heat in the pericardium of Jueyin is related to the release of fire in the lungs; The loquat leaves are bitter, flat, and slightly sweet. The calming qi corresponds to the energy of the body's Yang Ming Chong He. It starts with the Yang Ming Large Intestine and Foot Yang Ming Stomach Meridian, and the leaves correspond to the lungs. It is used to treat coughing caused by excessive heat in the stomach and large intestine, as well as stomach heat and vomiting. Both are hot soups, originating from the difference between Jueyin pericardial fire and Yangming stomach fire and large intestine fire. It is known that mulberry leaves and loquat leaves are used to treat pericardial congestion fever and yangming congestion fever, respectively.


Second brother, how to choose Sha Shen for treating heat and cough?

Compared to roots, leaves have a greater ability to release fluids, while roots contain more body fluids. Sand ginseng is used as a medicine to fill the air with a loose and white color, with mild sweetness and bitterness. Its flesh has a loose and white texture, and its sweetness and sweetness penetrate from the spleen of the foot Tai Yin to the lung meridian of the hand Tai Yin. It has a stronger effect on tonifying yin fluid, and bitterness can lower qi. The lungs are located in the heavenly part of the human body. Sand ginseng has a sweet, cold, and bitter nature of tonifying yin fluid, as in hot and dry summer rainfall, making the weather cool, clearing lung heat, and regulating heart fire to invade the lungs.

Sha Shen has a sparse but bitter texture, and if it is formed, it can be dispersed. If it is startled, it can be calmed down. It can treat the heat accumulation in the heart and lungs, and also promote the accumulation of blood and qi. The book says, "Eliminate cold and heat, nourish the middle, and benefit the lung qi. Those who complement the right words have a sweet and juicy taste, which is also related to the Taiyin Lung Meridian.


Second brother, what is the difference between ginseng and sand ginseng?

Ginseng is sweet, bitter, and warm, with a heavy and solid body. It is good at tonifying the qi in the spleen and stomach, benefiting the lungs and kidneys from the spleen and stomach. Therefore, it is suitable for those who lack genuine qi due to internal injuries; Sha Shen is sweet and bitter cold, with a light body that replenishes lung qi from the spleen. The endpoint is in the lungs and not in the spleen. It is good at treating the dry fire in the heart and lungs, and when the dry fire is flat, the lung qi is smooth. Therefore, it is beneficial for the kidneys and spleen. Therefore, it is suitable for those who are affected by fire, and has a corrective effect. It is not directly beneficial than ginseng and is not used as a daily health product.


Can I use Maidong and Tiandong at the same time?

Ophiopogon japonicus is sweet and nourishing, with the stomach and lungs interconnected, providing resources for the pericardium to generate blood, thus benefiting blood, unblocking the heart, and restoring meridians; Tian Dong Gan Han nourishes, connects kidneys and lungs, nourishes lung and kidney yin and fluid, treats kidney fire and lung atrophy, all of which have cough therapeutic effects. Due to different pathological conditions, it seems unnecessary to use them simultaneously. There is a suspicion of slipping when used together.

The transportation of the two organs is evidenced by the "Jing": "The pulse of Taiyin in the lung and hands originates from the middle energizer, the lower collaterals of the large intestine, and also runs along the stomach. The upper diaphragm belongs to the lung... The pulse of Shaoyin in the heart and hands originates from the heart, and belongs to the heart system. If it is straight, it goes from the heart system but goes up to the lungs... The pulse of Shaoyin in the kidney and feet originates from the little finger, and if it is straight, it passes through the liver diaphragm and enters the lungs. If it is branched, it goes out of the lungs to the heart and injects into the chest." Therefore, it is known that Maidong Tiandong follows different routes and has different pharmacological effects.


Second Brother, how do you understand that winter flowers can treat both cough and asthma?

In winter, flowers bloom directly on the roots, without leaves or stems, which symbolizes the direct connection between the kidneys and the heart and lungs of the human body. When flowers bloom on the roots, they bloom like the yang in the yin in the sky, transforming the yuan yin into the yuan yang and supporting the cold evil in the kidney and lung channels. They not only communicate with the heart and kidneys, but also open with the clear and cold qi between heaven and earth, guiding the yin qi from the yang to enter the kidneys. The lungs are also the yin in the yang of the human body. Therefore, after using Xin Wen to dispel cold, they can also lower the lung qi to treat cough and asthma. This is because they have the appearance of lung kidney communication.

Honey roasting has the properties of increasing sweetness and moistening, as well as nourishing the lung and kidney yin qi. Therefore, it is good at treating fatigue, coughing, and wheezing. It is effective for children with chronic deficiency heat and persistent cough. The "Materia Medica" states that "the main cough is against the upper qi, good at wheezing, throat obstruction, various convulsions, cold and hot evil energy"; Tao Hongjing's words "treat wheezing and breathing" and "Rihuazi's" words "nourish the heart and lungs, benefit the five organs" all originate from the communication between the heart and kidneys, which can ascend, descend, disperse, and gather energy.


Second Brother, how is the difference between Donghua and Baibu in treating cough?

One focuses on treating coughs caused by kidney deficiency and asthma, while the other focuses on protecting the lungs and treating coughs caused by yin deficiency, fire dryness, and burning stomach heat. Tongzhi Yin Deficiency Cough. Children with food accumulation and cough should use stomach warming drugs, and there is no need to rub them on the lungs.


Second brother, can winter flowers treat small and medium-sized nodules in the lungs?

Donghua is a medicine with complex personality and abilities, equivalent to a versatile person who can do multiple tasks at the same time. It is commonly known as "Lian San", with long oval shaped flower buds, thicker and fuller at the upper end, and thinner at the lower end, resembling a spring bamboo shoot. The flower buds directly grow on the root and stem. Before the land freezes, the flower buds are about to bloom.

There is both a side that guides the upward movement of vital energy to return to the lungs, and a side that guides the downward movement of vital energy from the heart and lungs to the kidneys. As the ancients once said, "Winter flowers are essential for treating cough, regardless of cold, heat, deficiency, or excess." They are characterized by treating asthma, cough, and reflux, while maintaining lung qi. Because flowers connect the heart, blood vessels, and the heart and lungs are connected to the kidneys, there is also a chance for dispersing and consolidating the lungs, and consuming the lungs. Today, people consume the lungs to produce nodules, and winter flowers have the potential to be useful.


Second brother, your explanation of cough medication seems to have glimpsed the method of using the Five Elements to compare and comprehend medication.

Taking winter suckle as an example, all things can be compared in appearance. The principle is based on the principles of yin and yang biochemistry. The flower head of winter suckle is covered with pink purple or light brownish red scaly bracts, and the inner surface of the bracts has white flocculent fur, which wraps around the heart like envelope and the flake like fur like lung. "The pulse of kidney and foot Shaoyin originates from below the little finger... The straight one passes through the liver diaphragm from the kidney, enters the lung, follows the throat, and carries the tongue like root; the branch one flows out of the heart from the lung and injects into the chest

Fructus Lonicerae grows flowers on its roots, with a refreshing fragrance and a slight bitterness. The principle of reducing bitterness is based on the foot Shaoyin kidney meridian, which flows from the kidneys to the lungs and chest, and combines with the upper heart and lungs to connect with the lower kidneys. It is sweet, refreshing, nourishing, and nourishing the yin. "Entering the lungs, following the throat... exiting from the lungs to the heart, injecting into the chest." In the chest is the source of the Jueyin pericardial meridian, According to Fang's book, it is similar to "treating phlegm and yin deficiency, throat obstruction, nourishing the heart and lungs, causing convulsions and evil qi, and dividing the upper jiao lung into asthma".


Second brother, several colleagues in the unit found small nodules in the lung during the physical examination. The doctor said to have a follow-up every six months. If they grow up, they can undergo surgery. Does this matter?

Small and medium-sized nodules in the lungs originate from lung dryness, and the water vapor in the sky comes from the transpiration of ground water. In humans, it means "drinking into the stomach, overflowing with essence, and being transported up to the spleen". The process of dispersing qi and essence is attributed to the lungs and regulating water channels. Nowadays, many people suffer from lung dryness, which is related to their lifestyle of staying up late, anxiety, overdraft, and drug abuse. After discovering small nodules, the first step is to identify the cause, improve lifestyle, and there is still a long time to go before they develop into tumors, in order to correct them.

Second brother, there are many lung nodules in the physical examination now! It is still said that it is caused by phlegm dampness, so how to distinguish between dryness and dampness?

That's also dry phlegm. Spitting a mouthful of phlegm on the stove, leaving behind a dry substance after the edge moisture evaporates, which is a pathological metaphor. Phlegm in the lungs can accumulate in the alveolar cavity, which can be eliminated through the trachea or accumulated into nodules due to insufficient dry lung qi; Phlegm and dampness may also accumulate in lung cells, affecting the relationship between the five elements within the cells, namely cellular metabolic function. These changes in cases can be seen as the foundation of cancer.The root is to maintain health, and small lesions can be corrected by oneself.
