A healthy man or a big man?
Last month my Dad was ill in hospital. He got pneumonia and was arranged in Nephropathy department by mistake.
You know if someone's kidney has a problem, that means this person's health gets very big problem. I thought most patients in this department should be senior people. To my surprise, there are many middle-aged men. I got to know three patients:
The 1st one is in his forties, a driver. He was in dialysis treatment. Both he and his wife said he was so strong and never got illness in the past.
The 2nd one is in his fifties, a businessman. He was in dialysis treatment. Both he and his wife said he was so strong and never got illness in the past.
The 3rd one is in his sixties, a former sailor. His wife said he was so strong and never got illness in the past. He had paralyzed and lain in bed for more than seven years. He couldn't talk.
All their wives complained that their husbands never listened to the advices about health. They always said" I'm a man! I'm strong."
Many men are very healthy in born. But they don't value the health that their parents gave them. They eat whatever they like, work or entertain till exhausted.
There is another type of men. They are weak in born but pay much attention to their health after grownup. They live longer and suffer less from health problem than those who claimed "I AM Strong".
After 10 days my father went out of the hospital, just on the first day of 2012, the 3rd man's wife texted me that his husband died.
There was an advertisement before. A group of young men was singing and dancing :"I'm a man. I want BIG MAC and hot dog."; "I'm not a girl. I don't like vegetable and tofu."
What kind of man do you want to be? A healthy man or a "big man" ?
If you don't have a health consciousness you fall down to sick. You need your families to take care of you. You cannot take care of your families any more. In this case, you cannot afford the responsibility as a man, not to say a big man!
Hope you are a real big man.

Six climatic pathogenic factors are exogenous causes of diseases. The wind is always the leading pathogenic factor. Wind also combines other evils such as wind-cold, wind-heat, wind-dampness, etc.. Many illnesses are caused by wind evil(or together with other factors) such as cold, urticaria, headache, etc.
Features of wind pathogenic factor(wind evil)
Wind is Yang pathogenic factor. Yang parts of the body are vulnerable to be attacked such as the top and the surface of the body. Symptoms are headache, pharynx itch, perspiration, aversion to coldness.
Wind moves constantly and changes rapidly such as convulsion, urticaria.
How to tell good wind and evil wind
Good QI, or good wind comes from the direction in accordance with the season. For instance, east wind in spring, south wind in summer, west wind in autumn and north wind in winter, etc..
Virtual wind is opposite the direction of the season. Evil wind is virtual wind which can hurt our health.
Good wind intrudes our body's superficial. When it contacts healthy Qi of our body good wind will disappear automatically. But evil wind intrudes deep part of our body and cannot disappear automatically.
Different wind evils hurt different viscera.
Different types of people are vulnerable to different types of wind evils (But not sure if it's applicable to the westerners)
People of dark color with thick skin and strong muscles are not easy to be attacked by wind evils.
When we are easy to be attacked by wind evils?
The above is called three-deficiency. If three-deficiency happens we are easy to be attached by wind evils.
When our sweat pores open we're easy to be attacked by wind evils. So when you are sweating don't enter into an air-con room or face the wind. Sweat off your and slightly pad your skin by your palm to close the pores.
Thus, sometimes you feel pain on the back, the arms or some other parts of the body. Then you might be attacked by the air-con wind.
People won't get attacked if there are wind and rain at mid-night. If at day time, many people will get sick.
If wind evils intrude your bone they may hide in winter time but will come out in spring. When Yang Qi arises the grain of skin and the texture of the subcutaneous flesh open and slack. So people will be attacked by the the hidden evils.

Jan. 23, 2012 is the first day of Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival. From the name we know that Chinese New Year is the beginning of spring. 15 days later (after Chinese New Year), farmers will be busy in spring plough.
From Jan.23 to Feb.22 it's the first month of 2012 in Chinese Lunar Year. In this month, the kidney Qi and the lung Qi are weak. In our meal plan we should reduce salty and sour flavor foods while increase pungent flavor food. Take your meals regularly (balance nutrition, at regular time, at proper portion) to protect the stomach.
In the south it's getting warmer, more raining, more sunshine. More pathogenic bacteria get active. People living in the south should increase outdoor exercise to improve anti-disease ability. Open windows frequently to keep room fresh. Diet should go for light and fresh food.
In the north it's still very cold, especially at night. Don't be so eager to change thin clothes. You'll be easy to be attacked by the spring wind evil. Many arthritis patients must have changed spring/summer clothes (especially pants or stocking) when they were young.
