We are often blamed by teachers or leaders for mental distraction. When you distracted, you are often asked: What are you thinking about? You will definitely refuse for a moment: Nothing thought of it. But it can be seen that you must be thinking of something else. Mental distraction is a manifestation of inattention or lack of focus. Suitable for people of all ages, and anytime.
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the factors that make it easy to lose consciousness may have the following two points.
1) Spleen deficiency and phlegm dampness
The “Huangdi Neijing” has: “The heart hides the spirit, the lungs hides Pu (the Yang soul), the liver hides Hun (the Ying soul), the spleen hides the meaning, and the kidney hides the will”,In the “Sanyin Jiyi Bingzhen Fanglun”, it is said: “If the spleen is sick now, it will be unclear, uneasy, and forgetful.”
The treatment method should strengthen the spleen and remove dampness
2) Feel restless, deficiency of heart-energy
Regarding this category, there is a record in the royal court medical records of the Qing Dynasty in China, saying that Emperor Guangxu “usually laughed without cause” and “spoken without being aware of it.” Faced with this situation, what did the imperial physicians do? The Qing royal court medical record records that the Emperor Guangxu took two herbs instead of tea. This is 9 grams of forged Dragon’s Teeth, 3 grams of Rhizoma Acori Tatarinowii, boiled in water, and and take it instead of tea.
What is Dragon’ Teeth? It is not a dragon’s tooth, but is it a fossil of ancient mammal’s teeth, such as cows, rhinos, and elephants. It is cool and astringent in nature, and enters the heart meridian and liver meridian, which can calm the nerves and relieve fever. Traditional Chinese medicine often uses this medicine when treating various symptoms of restlessness. Even now, Dragon’s Teeth is also commonly used clinically. As for Rhizoma Acori Tatarinowii, everyone is familiar with it. Rhizoma Acori Tatarinowii will rejuvenate the soul, and Dragon’s Teeth will calm and soothe the nerves. When the two medicines are used together, they can be used to improve the mental state of people in a certain extent.” .
At these times, the method of boiling Dragon’s Teeth and Rhizoma Acori Tatarinowii in water instead of tea is one of the adjustment methods. The Dragon’s Teeth here generally need to be boiled first. However, in fact, this method can only treat the symptoms, not the root cause. The cure for the root cause usually requires coordinating with evacuation of liver and Relieve stagnation, nourishing heart and spleen, etc. This requires further dialectical treatment.
