Combing your hair often can alleviate sub-health

The World Health Organization survey shows that in the world, only 5% of the total population are truly healthy, 20% are sick, and the remaining 75% are in sub-health.

According to the survey of the Ministry of health on the health status of office workers in 10 cities on the mainland, 48% of them are in sub-health status, which is particularly serious in economically developed areas, including 75.3% in Beijing, 73.4% in Shanghai and 73.41% in Guangzhou. Sub health has become the number one enemy affecting the health of office workers.

In fact, sub-health can be prevented and reversed. According to experts, sub-health is the transition between health and disease, which is called the third state, also known as gray health. If sub-health continues to develop, it will become a disease; But compared with diseases, sub-health can be reversed and recovered. As long as we take proper health care and recuperation, the sub-health state can be restored to a healthy state.

Professor Chang ZhangFu, College of traditional Chinese medicine, Beijing University of traditional Chinese medicine, pointed out that for urban white-collar workers who are under great pressure, regular hair combing and health care can prevent and alleviate sub-health.

Urban white-collar workers are busy at work and often sit still for a long time. Some even sit all day long and lack exercise at the same time. As a result of maintaining a fixed sitting posture for a long time, it is easy to cause stagnation of Qi and blood and blockage of meridians, which will inevitably affect physical health over time.

According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, if the human body’s meridians and Qi and blood are not smooth for a long time, it may cause diseases. If you often stimulate and massage the meridians and acupoints of the human body to make your blood flow smooth, you can recover your health. Combing your hair can massage several important acupoints on the head of the human body to dredge meridians and smooth blood.

The twelve meridians and the eight odd meridians in the human body all converge directly on the head, or indirectly act on the head. Therefore, the human head is also known as the “head of all Yang”. When combing the hair, the comb teeth continuously stroke and press the scalp, which is equivalent to continuously stimulating these acupoints with the comb teeth, so as to dredge the meridians, promote blood circulation around the body, regulate nerve function, eliminate fatigue and fatigue.

in autumn and winter, we should comb our hair more frequently.

As the saying goes, “there is no disease in a summer, and there is no deficiency in three parts”. With the arrival of autumn and winter, the weather environment and human functions are changing. The human body is in a relatively weak state and needs to be adjusted urgently. There is also a folk saying of “autumn tonic”.

In terms of conditioning in autumn, traditional Chinese medicine believes that “Yang is nurtured in spring and summer, and Yin is nurtured in autumn and winter”. In spring and summer, Li is opened and vented, and Yang Qi is transpiration; In autumn and winter, Yang Qi converges and Qi is closed. In this case, on the one hand, autumn and winter conditioning should “replenish the essence of blood”, on the other hand, it should dredge the meridians and activate collaterals. Combing hair can be regarded as a simple, affordable and effective way of health preservation in autumn and winter.

Experts point out that there are two points to pay attention to when combing and preserving health in autumn and winter. First, the air in autumn and winter is dry, easy to get angry, irritable, and prone to sleepiness. It is best to comb your hair once in the morning, once in the afternoon and once in the evening. Get up in the morning and comb for 10 minutes to promote blood circulation and lift spirit; Take a 5-minute break at noon, which can not only prevent autumn fatigue but also calm irritability; Comb for another 10 minutes at night to ease fatigue and sleep.

Second, the climate is dry, and the hair is easy to dry up and carry static electricity. Therefore, when choosing a comb, it is better to choose a natural, anti-static wide tooth wooden comb and a corner comb, and avoid using a plastic comb.
