“Healthy and ethical” Chongyang has passed the autumn dryness and still uses the healthy life of the chrysanthemum
Yesterday was our traditional festival, the Double Ninth Festival. I don’t know if you have climbed up, Pei, and eat Chongyang cake?
The Double Ninth Festival is the first day of the lunar calendar on the 9th of September.
In the Book of Changes, “Nine” is set as a positive number. On September 9th, two or nine are heavy, so “Chongyang”; because the day and the moon are both nine, it is also called “heavy nine.”
Jiujiu returned to the truth, and at the beginning of the Yuan Dynasty, the ancients believed that Jiujiu Chongyang was an auspicious day.
In the past, Chongyang was the season when the climate turned cold, the yang gradually declined, and the autumn was popular. Therefore, we must pay special attention to health, especially elderly friends.
In fact, the most effective way to deal with autumn dryness is to pay attention to diet. We should focus on a light diet, eat less greasy, sweet, spicy products, like high sugar, so we should eat less.
In addition, you should eat more coarse grains and foods that add vitamins and minerals.
When it comes to diet, since ancient times we have the custom of drinking chrysanthemum wine in the Double Ninth Festival.
We all know that chrysanthemum is a very good traditional Chinese medicine for clearing away heat and detoxification.
When we get angry, we often re-enact a cup of tea to clear the heat.
In fact, chrysanthemum can not only make tea, it also has other usages to help us alleviate the various discomforts of the body!
