We all say “eventful autumn”. Autumn is an eventful season. Some diseases are easy to appear in autumn, such as oral ulcer, skin itching, cold, etc. Let’s take a look at the 8 diseases that should be prevented in autumn.
8 diseases to watch out for in autumn:
In addition to the dry climate, oral injury, nutritional deficiency, hormone changes and other factors will directly lead to the emergence of oral ulcer. Usually, you should pay attention to keeping your mouth clean, gargle with light salt water, eat less spicy and thick spicy food, and keep your stool unobstructed. In addition, oral ulcer is largely related to personal physical quality, so oral ulcer is also considered to be a signal of physical weakness, so patients should strengthen physical exercise and improve their physique.
Autumn five elements belong to gold, summer belongs to soil, native gold. In autumn, the nature of natural soil is reduced, and spleen and stomach belong to soil. Gastrointestinal diseases, such as acute gastroenteritis, should be prevented.
Special attention should also be paid to the prevention of acute gastroenteritis in autumn. After autumn, the disease resistance of human intestines began to weaken. Diarrhea, dysentery, loose stools and other acute and chronic gastrointestinal diseases are likely to occur. Pay attention to food hygiene in life, eat regularly, and don’t overeat. Should try to eat less irritant food, keep the spirit happy. Excessive mental stimulation, such as long-term tension, fear, sadness and depression, will cause dysfunction of cerebral cortex, promote vagus nerve dysfunction, lead to vasospasm contraction of gastric wall, and then induce gastritis and gastric ulcer.
Lung combined fur: Fur refers to the muscle surface and pores of the human body, which is the barrier for the human body to resist external pathogens. The lung can transport Wei Qi and body fluid to the muscle surface, warm and nourish the skin and hair, so as to maintain its normal biological function. If the lung qi is sufficient, the fur is moist, the opening and closing of sweat holes are normal, and the body is not easy to be invaded by external pathogens. If the lung qi is weak, the external Qi is insufficient, the muscle surface is not solid, easy to sweat, and easy to be invaded by external pathogens, which often catch a cold. When external pathogens invade the muscle surface, they often cause lung diseases. The skin is dominated by the lung. Skin pruritus is a very common disease in autumn. Generally, it is easy to induce or aggravate when eating irritant food or rising temperature. This season, bathing should not be too frequent, and soap and shower gel can not use some more alkaline ingredients.
The lung dominates the sound: the generation of sound is related to the function of the lung. The voice of people with sufficient Lung Qi is loud, and the voice of people with weak Lung Qi is low. When the wind cold attacks the lung, the lung qi is blocked, and hoarseness or aphasia may occur.
The lung opens its orifices in the nose: the nose is the channel for gas in and out, which is directly connected with the lung. If the lung qi is normal, the nose orifices are smooth and the sense of smell is sensitive. If there is a lung disease, there may be nasal congestion, runny nose, abnormal smell, and even incitement of nasal wings, dyspnea and other diseases. Especially people with allergic constitution are prone to rhinitis or rhinitis attack in autumn because it is difficult to adapt to this climate change. If you have frequent sneezing, headache, chest pain and stomach pain, you must pay more attention, because this is a typical symptom of allergic rhinitis. At this time, we should pay special attention to keep warm, avoid catching cold, and ensure the light diet, so as to stay away from allergens.

Autumn is a season of alternating cold and heat, and the climate is characterized by high humidity and heat in early autumn; After dew, the rain decreases, the climate is dry, hot in the day and cool at night; The weather soon turned cold after the cold dew. As the temperature difference between day and night increases and the temperature changes, many people are difficult to adapt to climate change, and are very prone to diseases or relapse.
On the surface and inside of the lung and large intestine, due to the characteristics of the climate after autumn, it is easy to lead to dry and difficult defecation. It is mainly manifested in reduced defecation times, hard feces, patients often have a feeling of abdominal distension in the left lower abdomen, poor desire for defecation, etc. Therefore, in autumn, patients with habitual constipation should drink at least 2000 ~ 3000 ml of warm water every day, so as to effectively prevent constipation.
Autumn dryness does the greatest harm to the human body is the lung. Dryness evil is most likely to cause lung injury and fluid consumption, resulting in “autumn dryness” such as dry nose and pharynx, hoarse dry cough, dry stool and so on. In autumn, you should eat more foods that produce fluid, such as sesame, pear, lotus root, banana, apple, tremella, lily, persimmon and other foods, so as to moisten the dryness and nourish the lungs. Skin is easy to dry in autumn. Pay attention to skin care.

It is generally recommended to develop good water drinking habits every day, that is, don’t wait until you feel thirsty to drink water, but drink water from time to time, especially at noon when the temperature is high. In addition, you can also eat food with more water content, etc.
Drink less coffee: although coffee has become the most common drink in daily life, from a health point of view, due to the long days and short nights in autumn, if you drink too much coffee, it is likely to affect your normal sleep at night.
Eat more foods rich in cellulose: eat more foods rich in cellulose in autumn to meet the normal supply of blood and make the body more energetic. Grapes, small apples and pasta are all foods rich in cellulose, so you can eat more every day.
Foods rich in amino acids: supplement more foods rich in amino acids every day, especially fatty amino acids, which is more conducive to maintaining the activity of brain cells. It is more conducive to keep a clear mind and prevent the feeling of autumn sleepiness.
Eat breakfast on time: breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so you should not only eat, but also eat on time and eat well. The study found that people who eat breakfast on time, both mentally and physically, are many times better than those who don’t like or cope with breakfast.
Eat on time: under the fast-paced lifestyle, the original simple meal has become a special luxury. In particular, some workaholics may forget to eat as soon as they are busy.
