Summer is here, and the children’s digestive clinic of Xiamen Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine is more lively than usual. Many parents have broken their hearts for their children’s performance on the table: even if the table is full of dishes they love to eat, children always eat a few mouthfuls and only take a few mouthfuls to take a few mouthfuls.Don’t eat it.Parents are very puzzled: "The child does not want to eat at all, is it accumulated?"
"Spleen failure is critical, and spleen failure is declining." TCM believes that the child’s spleen is relatively weak, and the effect of summer dampness will have a bad appetite.In addition to poor appetite, sometimes there are problems such as poor sleep, often irritability, crying and other problems.

What is going on with children’s accumulation?
Chen Yubin, deputy chief physician of the pediatric department of Xiamen Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital, introduced that "Medical Saint" Zhang Zhongjing once said: The spleen of the four seasons is not affected.The meaning of this sentence is that as long as the spleen is strong, the human body is not easy to get sick."From the perspective of Chinese medicine, the spleen is the basis of the day after tomorrow, the source of qi and blood, the stomach is the sea of water valleys, and the spleen and stomach is the source of human nutrients.
Chen Yubin said that children’s spleen is often deficient. At the stage of childhood, the "factory" of the spleen and stomach is not perfect, or the production capacity is insufficient.Wet effects have caused many foods to not be digested and absorbed, and damage spleen and stomach function.In this case, Chinese medicine is called accumulated food, also called food accumulation.

If you use a hot towel or a hot water bottle to make the baby’s abdominal heat compress, gently massage the abdomen in the clockwise direction, and appropriately supplement the probiotic bacteria to adjust the intestinal flora.
