Cause of headache 1

Winter of 1999 was the first winter we spent in Sweden. Being here for a few months, we did not know much about this country, including the language of Swedish.

However, we can manage because nearly all Swedish people can understand and speak English, which made us more lazy to learn Swedish.

One day, we wanted to go someplace by bus without knowing that there were two lines of this bus. One went to a place and the other line went to another place. We had to check on front of bus where it showed destination of the bus.

Not knowing that, we took a bus and came to a destination that was not where we wanted to go. Anyway, we came off. It was cold and I had to carry my daughter who was more than two years old by that time( she just wanted me to carry her).

On this cold day, having walked nearly half hour without a hat on my head(my husband and daughter had hats on), we finally came to a McDonald and went into McDonald at once.

That night, I began to have very bad headache. The whole head was in such a horrible pain. I am not a person who is so sensitive to pain, but that pain was just too much to stand. My husband suggested me to have pain killer pills. In the beginning, I did not want. It was too much to put up with so I had to have the pain killer pills. But the pain was still there, it was as strong as before.

The next day, I went to see family doctor and explained to her how horrible the headache was. Family doctor sent me to a further examination. CT showed nothing was wrong with my brain.

Nevertheless, the headache was going on and doctor did not know what medicine to give me based on that the pain killer pills had not helped me and nothing wrong was found out through CT.

During the night, the pain was still very bad. Without knowing what to do to get rid of the horrible headache, I asked my husband to massage my head for some time. He just pushed on my head around ten minutes. Afterwards, I felt better. At least I could stand. After a few nights’ painful headache, eventually I had a good sleep. With that encouraging, later, I did massage my head myself as well. Gradually, the headache was gone. That was 1999. By that time, I did not know the reason why I had that horrible headache at all.

It was 2012. After learning TCM and observing my own body for a few years, I thought about that horrible headache and connected the headache with the long walking in cold.

It was not a problem to do the long walking in cold. The mistake was that I did long walking in cold without a hat on and then for a sudden went into a warm room, which caused that horrible headache. The reason was that my body had no time to get used to the sudden warm environment, which led to that horrible headache.

The headache was gone, but the cold stayed in my head until 2012 when my body began to have energy to take care of that problem, I experienced cold air blowing while sweating on my head. It came and went for a few cycles.

Blood sugar/ experiences of cold 4

The other friend, P is my class mate. She wears two or three lays clothes during summer and her hands are cold all the time. She told me that her feet are cold all the time as well.

Because of her very bad PMS, once she asked me how Chinese medicine helps people with PMS. I did give her some ideas, but it is so hard to find some herbs here in Sweden. She did want to try those herbs to help her relieve PMS because all the other ways she could find did not work.

We often talk a lot during lunch time. I saw her eat fruit as lunch nearly every day. One day, one of our classmates took some home baked biscuits for us to have a taste. P said she could not eat because she has high blood sugar. I told her that her stomach system is cold, which is why she has cold hands and feet all the time and high blood sugar as well.

She stared at me just like I was drunk.

Anyhow, I asked her to do a little test. The test is to put same amount of sugar in two cups of water. The difference of these two cups of water is the temperature. One cup is with cold water that she often drinks and the temperature of the other cup of water is 36 degree, body temperature. She can stir these two cups of water and see in which one the sugar melts quickly.

A few days later, I was surprised to see her drink warm water. She told me that she remembered in her culture in older time, people used to drink warm water as well. Just with the fluency of western, people began to drink cold. After hearing what I suggested, she did try to drink warm and eat warm. Then she kept on going to toilet and she began to understand what I said about body energy and throwing waste and so on. About the little test, she told her husband that I had said she has a cold stomach. Her husband laughed at that since he never heard a concept so called cold stomach. When she explained to him the test, he thought it is very convincing.

It takes a long time for anyone to develop into diabetes. First, your body energy is getting lower and lower. Then symptoms of diabetes begin to show up. In the beginning, blood sugar is high. In the later stage, complications appear.

One of the complications of diabetes is that wound in legs is hard to heal. You do not feel much of this open wound because body energy could not go there at all. Like paralyzed people, they do not have feeling in the part that is paralyzed even though you hit that area. It is the same reason.

It takes long time from the stage that you do not feel much in certain area of your body to the stage that you do not feel anything at all. It is a long process and this process is up to our body energy.

Cold food and drink cost more body energy to warm up first so that they can be digested, absorbed. Each part of this process needs body energy to do it and each part of this process could have problem.

No matter what problem it could be, the reduced body energy is the key issue for you to have diabetes, furthermore other health concerns.

Blood sugar/ experiences of cold 3

I have two friends. One is from China and the other is from Thailand. Both of them have high blood sugar, but it is not the time for them to have some medicine yet.

Chinese one, F is very close to me. She is doing very heavy exercises to lose weight. She did lose some weight, but it is far away from her goal. We often go out together. Seeing her drinking so much cold water (She is afraid of hot, but seldom have sweat), I told her to drink warm water to lose weight. At the same time, I explained to her why she should drink warm water to lose weight. I know she does not believe in me. Anyway, I want her to try one week and see how her body reacts.

While she was drinking warm water and having warm food, I want her to be aware of two things. One thing she should pay attention to is her urinate. If she could do in one week totally, drinking warm and eating warm, her urinate should be in bigger amount with darker color than it used to be. The other thing she should be aware of is that her urinate should smell a lot, which really shows that her urinate is in a good quality; her body is really throwing some waste out through urinate.

I do not think she believes me much but she promised me that she would try one week and see how it goes.

After this, I nearly forgot about it until next time we met at my home, it should be two months later. She looks better and did lose some weight in a good way. I mean while she was doing heavy exercises, she did lose some weight, but frankly speaking, I think she looked a little bit worn out. However, this time, she looks lighter and shining with some sweating. She could not have sweat for a long time. Then she told me that I am right. After trying one week, she noticed that her urinate came out a big amount with darker color and smelled much.

Then, I understand why she is shining on her face and why she looks good. Her looking this time is so different from the worn out looking before.

It is not the warm drink or warm food that made this shining and good looking. It is the regained energy that body saved made this remarkable difference.

Know your body 5: to test the body temperature

The normal body temperature is around 36 degrees. Let us wonder whether each part of our body can reach this temperature or not.

The simple way to do this is to put your tongue over your hand and then feel how it is like. After this, you put your hand into some water with 36 degrees and then feel. You would find that water with 36 degrees is warmer than your tongue. Based on this, it is not so hard to draw a conclusion. It is not each part of our body that can reach normal temperature.

I am talking about lower temperature than 36 degrees.

So many people suffer from cold hands and feet. Obviously, their hands and feet cannot reach the body temperature.

However,Some of them can feel the coldness of their hands and feet. The others do not feel cold at all. Those who could not feel the coldness in their hands and feet are in bad health situation.

To warm up your cold hands and feet, you have to take care of your stomach system. Our body temperature comes from our stomach.
