Why do I only drink hot water? This is a habit I grew up with:❤️ ——————————————————————
In TCM, water💧 is cold and yin, stomach is the stove of our body and the stove needs fire🔥 to cook and transport nutrients to different parts of body. Long term consumption of cold water, slowly turns off the fire from stove, resulting abnormal function of digestion, leading to malnutrition, and a weak immune system. Too much cold accumulation in our body also causes poor circulation, intestinal cramps, and abdominal pain.
✔️For young children, their organs are delicate, after consuming lots of cold foods (cold milk, ice cream, sandwiches, salads) cold water, and cold juices. Their stomachs (stoves) becomes colder and colder, leading to all kinds digestive problems, sinus problems, allergies, hay fever, and asthma, ... In "Yellow Emperor's" master Classic of chineses medicine, "cold constitute with cold drinks hurt the lung" (cold constitution here means overconsumption of cold foods turn our body type to extreme cold). In five elements stomach is the mother of the lung, when the mother (stomach) has no fire🔥to digest food, the lung (son) will not be nourished properly, thus weaken lung, and causing problems such as
allergies, sinus, rhinitis, and asthma. So we need to keep the fire🔥on the stove, to help keep mother (stomach) and lung (son) healthy.
✔️Excessive drinking of cold water also affect development and physiological functions of the reproductive system, for young ladies, it can cause menstrual cramps, menstrual disorders, and excessive discharge.😨Over accumulation of cold creates "chilled palace" which means extreme cold uterus, ovary, ovarian tube, and lead to over growth of dampness, fibrous ,ovarian cysts, tumors, dysmenorrhea, and infertility.🙁
✔️In hot summer days, it feels good to drink ice cold water, but our body is supposed to expel excess heat through sweat, but cold water inhibit all sweat to sweat out, causing heat retain inside our body, can easily lead to heat stroke. 🔥
