Mask Trap fn

Mask is found to be effective in preventing the spread of SARS. However, it also prevents us from breathing freely to obtain the oxygen we need. A more secure mask like N95 is said to be more protective but it is also easier for us to fall into the trap of breathing mostly the exhaled air (which is hot and contains too much CO2), causing "chronic suffocation" with symptoms like dizzy, fatigue and lack of concentration. In terms of TCM, we fall into the status of "lung chi deficiency" and "lung fire".

Therefore masks with different protection levels should be used when staying in areas with different levels of danger. In addition, we could consciously breath deeper and use nosal inhaler when feeling stuffy.

To breath deeper, we can practice Cat Exercise which is similar to abdomenal breathing or diaphragmatic breathing. Nosal Inhaler like VICKS can help our body to get rid of the "lung fire" without damaging our stomach.

VICKS Inhaler

We found the Vicks Inhaler is effective in releasing the trapped heat () in the lungs and hence is a good tool for the prevention of SARS for people with heat in their lung system. Please note:

-Use it as instructed on the cover of the inhaler

-Inhale after using the mask for long or feeling stuffy.

-We found no problem so far for inhaling for 10m each time but it may varies with different body state.

-As some of you asked about overdose, we prepared this for your peace of mind.

-If you find a bit cold or even a bit goose skin after inhaling for long, it means you have enough for the time being. Stop for an hour before inhaling again.

-Do not use it when going to sleep as you may overdose by inhaling it for a few hours while you are asleep.

-In case you inhaled for the whole night and feel uncomfortable, try to mix a cup of ginger-vinegar drink with:

3 slice of ginger ($5 coin size each) grind

1 teaspoon of brown sugar

1 cup of boiling water

1 teaspoon of white vinegar

"板藍根"陷井
一場非典型肺炎疫潮令全香港面臨前所未有的沖擊.每一個人都擔心自己會感染這個新出現的病毒.俗語有云:"留得青山在,哪怕無柴燒".當務之急是保重自己的身體,有了這個前提,才有可能面對接下來的可能出現的种种問題. 於是乎,街頭巷尾時不時流傳一些所謂的預防方法.於是,有人狂飲益力多乳酸菌;有人狂吞維他命;有人狂吃保健品;有人狂煲雪梨湯;有人狂喝"中藥預防茶"......這些林林种种的所謂預防方法,是否真的有效呢?是不是每個人都适合?會不會有害處呢?

中醫有一套完整的養生理論,是基于中國几千年的文化和實踐而保存至今的.它的中心理論是"正气存內,邪不可干".正气,用一個現代一點的名詞來解釋,也就是人体的抵抗力;邪,是指所有能夠導致人体生病的內外因素.
干,是指干扰,感染.而預防只是中醫養生的其中一環.

要預防非典型肺炎,重要的是做到"正气存內",則邪,也就是這個病毒,就"不可干"了.

怎樣才能夠"正气存內",增強我們的抵抗力呢? 首先要做到的就是"陰陽調和",換句話說,就是我們的身體要平衡,五臟六腑要平衡. 平衡是指不多不少,所以,不足的要補,過多的要瀉.哪一個臟腑不足,就補哪一個臟腑;哪一個臟腑過多,就瀉哪一個臟腑.
五臟六腑都是有關聯的,它們相生相克,相輔相成, 一環緊扣一環.

反觀現在市面上流傳的所謂預防中藥,都离不開板藍根,生地,貫眾,金銀花,玄參等等這些寒涼清熱的藥物,難道香港市民全部都是有實熱体質的嗎?如果是本身有不足的人,不補反瀉,他的身體不是更加失平衡嗎?再看那些林林种种的所謂補肺防炎湯,材料不外是雪梨,麥冬,沙參,玉竹等等清涼潤肺的材料,肺陰不足的人喝了固然好,万一是肺气不足的人喝了,后果就相反了.因為肺也有分陰陽,陰不足者要滋潤,陽不足者要溫補.所以,肺气不足的人喝了雪梨湯或者以清肺熱為目的的藥茶,身體的陽气更加不足,也就越失平衡,身體的抵抗力就越低,染病的机會就越高.

而且,目前市面上几乎所有的預防方法,針對的都是肺部的保健.但是,每一個人需要的都是補肺潤肺嗎?就如之前所說,"陰陽調和"講求的是五臟六腑的平衡,而不單單是指肺的平衡.比方說, 脾虛的人也是身體失了平衡,這個人的正气并不充盈,身體的抵抗力也并不夠強壯,染病的机會也相對提高,但是,這個人需要的是補脾,而不是補肺.我們的五臟六腑是相互關聯.相生相克的,脾胃強壯了,連帶肺的机能也能夠增強.

所以,預防非典型肺炎還要看個人的身體情況,坊間流傳的偏方或產品并不一定适合自己.要清楚知道自己的体質,才能夠正确選擇适合自己的預防方法和用品.如果對于自己究竟是屬于哪一种体質還不太清楚,請盡快找相熟的中醫師詢問.
