Hong Dongxu, deputy director of the Nutrition Department of the First Hospital of Jilin University, said.
Autumn flood control, yin and autumn is the transitional season between winter and summer winds. From the beginning of the autumn season to the end of the winter, including the autumn, the summer, the white dew, the autumn, the cold, the frost, and other six solar terms, and the Mid-Autumn FestivalThe boundary of climate conversion.
Dr. Hong Dongxu said that the autumn is a gradual yang, and the yin is getting longer. The key period from the conversion of Yangsheng to Yinsheng is the season of ripening and harvesting of human beings. The metabolism of yin and yang of the human body has also begun to disappear.
In the autumn, you must pay attention to the maintenance of yin, which is what the Chinese doctors say “autumn and winter yin”.

Therefore, this season is the time for the recovery of spleen and stomach function. It is not suitable for direct replacement of ginseng tonic, and it will not receive good results.
