Dry mouth in spring can cure yin deficiency
Spring weather is dry, many people often feel dry mouth.
Sometimes dry mouth can recover after drinking water; sometimes, even if you drink water, you can’t relieve the symptoms of dry mouth. Why?
In fact, it is well understood from the theory of Chinese medicine that the phenomenon of “dry mouth” is called “yin deficiency” in Chinese medicine.
In the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, the human body is divided into two parts, yin and yang: yin represents the blood, saliva, tears, semen and other liquids in the body.
When dry mouth can be relieved by drinking water, it is proved that the yin deficiency in the body is caused by excess yang.
Therefore, the yin and yang in the human body are balanced after the water that belongs to yin is added, and the symptoms of dry mouth are also relieved.
When the dry mouth is unable to recover after rehydration, it means that the yin fluid in the body is seriously deficient.
To treat dry mouth fundamentally, drinking water alone is not enough.
