Regimen on Grain Rain Season



Grain Rain is the last solar term of spring. Now the temperature rises, the rainfall increases, and the humidity in the air further increases, which is very suitable for the growth of cereal crops. Grain Rain comes from the meaning of "rain gives birth to grains".

When the Grain Rain term arrived, the priority for maintaining wellness is to nourish the liver, stretching the Qi of the liver and strengthing the Yang. The liver becomes over-exuberated in this season. Typically, the mainstays of liver over-exuberance (aka liver fire) are foul breath, constipation, headache, and dizziness.

Professor Xianzhong Wu, academician of Chinese Engineering Academy points out that nourishing the liver should be the priority, a frequent massage of Taichong acupoint has an obvious effect of soothing the liver and purging fire.

Taichong (太冲)acupoint is located in the depression behind the extension line between the big toe and the second toe toward the dorsum of the instep, press and knead with the thumb pulp appropriately, find the point with the strongest pain, and then repeatedly push and knead in the direction of the big toe.

穀雨,是春季最後一個節氣,氣溫升高,雨量增多,空氣中的濕度進一步加大,非常適合穀類作物生長。穀雨正是取“雨生百穀”之意。

穀雨節氣在春季,故此時仍以養肝為先,應注重肝氣的舒展和陽氣的升發。當季容易出現肝火旺盛的情況,常表现为口干口臭,便秘,头痛及头晕。中国工程院士吳鹹中就指出,應當以養肝為重。
