Headache 2

Cause of headache 2

A Chinese friend who has diabetes does not believe in TCM at all. His family and my family are quite close so we contact very often.

He thinks it is good to have some pills from conventional medicine to have his diabetes under control.TCM seems like some old trash in his eyes. But he knows that those pills can only control his blood sugar. He feels that his health condition is getting worse and worse as time goes by.

Once I went to visit them and asked him how he was. He shook his head. Before, after physical exercises, he felt better. It seemed that everything worked well with physical exercises. But now he felt weak and physical exercises gave him headache. He did not know what to do to help his body condition with diabetes.

I told him that the headache after physical exercise was not related to his diabetes. It was because he went out while he was sweating on his head. This reminded him that he did go out of the room directly into outside while he was sweating on his head.

From a cold environment to a warm environment, our body needs some time to get used to. It is the same from a warm environment to a cold environment. Our body also needs some time to do the adjustment.

The better health you have, the better ability you have to do this adjustment.

If our body has not enough time to do the adjustment, problem could occur. That part exposed most should be the first to be felt. So it is easy to understand why headache happens when he went out with sweating on his head.

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.
